    We are very excited to have heard back from Melbourne museum. Wanted to share with you all. Thanks for your help too. This is a small part of their email to us. We can’t wait till covid is done so that they can come visit.

I am actually 5 years old and my dad is helping me (he is typing) I included the photo of all the other fossils we found that day to try help but we are really unsure. Any information you might have would be super…[Read more]

    • Hi there, @zac-geddes, these pictures of you finding a fossil are super awesome! In order to properly identify your fossil, we need pictures of it from different angles. You have already included a scale here, which is awesome. Just upload different angles of the fossil with that scale, and we can start the identification process.

    • Hi mackenzie, thanks so much for replying to my post. I am so excited to know that somebody looked at my fossil and can help me learn more about it. At the moment I am at my grandparents farm for the the weekend again, looking for more fossils. When I get home I will take more photos of my fossil and upload them. Thanks for helping me. Zac (and his dad)

    • maybe galba truncatula although I’m not sure.
