Stunning Trilobites new to @McrMuseum collection! #fossilfriday these beauties are around 330 million years old. Trilobites lived in the sea often near coral reefs. They had a body shape a bit like a woodlouse.

Quickly remembering what it's like to live in 3 hour loops. But Trevor is home to help so I drank a coffee hot today πŸ‘ŒπŸ».

Anyone know anything about prehistoric #shark teeth? We found this monster on Christmas Day in the #GulfOfMexico. 😳 #megalodon for realz! #dailyfossil

So THIS just happened. My buddy found 2 associated Mammoth teeth just lying in 12 inches of water yesterday, partially exposed. You've got to put in the time and train your eye to find the big guys. Find of a lifetime. We have both been digging the general area together lately, just waiting for something like this to pop up. #fossiladdict #dailyfossil #palentology #outdooractivities #floridavacation #bonevalley #PEACERIVER #fossilfunatics #fossils #mammoth

In interesting up close pic on a piece of unidentified fossil coral I have had in my collection for years but had no ID tag. Amazing patterns and preservation.
Approx 4cm x 4cm shown.

Some old pics from a visit to "The Age of Fishes" Museum in Canowindra NSW AUSTRALIA. A personal tour by Alex Richie was the highlight. "A chance discovery in 1955 revealed an extensive fossil bed dating from the Devonian Period. This 360-370 million year old fossil deposit contains the remains of thousands of freshwater fish. Many were new to science. The best of the fossils so far recovered are now on public display." #hookedonfossils #fossils #fossil #museum #palaeontology #amazinggeology #dailyfossil #geology #geologyrocks #natgeo #nature #museums #science #old #fish #devonian #earth #earthporn #geologywonders #earthpix #photography #evolution

Beautiful colour array of fossil shark teeth.

Partial lower jaw section from the now extinct Thylacine. Not a fossil but still a part of our fascinating natural history.
On display at the Australian Fossil and Mineral Museum in Bathurst NSW AUSTRALIA.

So this incredibly scarce Jaguar tooth still attached to the jaw section seem to be a hit on our other page, so I thought I would share it here for those who aren't following @fossilguy407. Found last month, personally.

Australian opalised fossils are highly sought after and are now part of museum collections all over the world. This one pictured, is part of the mineral collection at the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History.

Diprotodon optatum replica skull on display at Wellington Caves Information Centre, NSW AUSTRALIA. "The massive Diprotodon optatum, from the Pleistocene of Australia, was the largest marsupial known and the last of the extinct, herbivorous diprotodontids. Diprotodon was the first fossil mammal named from Australia (Owen 1838) and one of the most well known of the megafauna. It was widespread across Australia when the first indigenous people arrived, co-existing with them for thousands of years before becoming extinct about 25,000 years ago." Old pic by me.
