We spent 3 hours up on this summit. You can probably guess why...

Don't be fooled by the cupcake-like object below-- it's #TrilobiteTuesday! One of the most prolific Silurian trilobite zones in North America can be found beneath the rugged yet picturesque landscape of remote Anticosti Island, Quebec. Surrounded by the surging waters of the Gulf of St. Lawrence, it takes a hearty soul to reach this densely forested, decidedly out-of-the-way locale. But such a venture is apparently well worth the effort for those with a true Paleozoic passion.
Not only are the 6,000 foot thick sedimentary layers of Anticosti bursting with fossils-- in some spots they're quite literally falling out of the cliff-sides-- but many of the trilobite specimens so-far discovered, including Diacalymene schucherti (seen here as an enrolled specimen), Failleana magnifica and Arctinurus anticostiensis, provide solid evidence that back some 430 million years ago this was home to a megafauna, one filled with trilobites of unusual size and spectacular preservation. After a major 2004 scientific revision, 52 trilobite species have now been recognized from Anticosti's rich Silurian layers, comprising an impressive 30 genera. And while material from such formations as the Jupiter and Gun River may not be as well known to either scientists or collectors astrilobites from more renowned North American locales, as more academic and commercial expeditions head to this craggy outpost, Anticosti Island's status as a trilobite haven seems destined to steadily increase. #paleozoic #trilobite #trilobites #amnh #fossil #fossils #naturalhistory #anticosti #anticostiisland

Dynastes neptunus, the Neptune beetle is one of the largest and most impressive rhino beetles and belongs to the tribe Dynastini, containing most of the largest species.The Neptune beetle reaches a maximum length (including horns) of at least 16 cm.#insects #coleoptere #animals #seashells #conchiglie #fossils #minerals #paleontology #malacology #geology #beautiful #nature #curiosity #science #art #instagram #bugs

This is the famous "Trachodon mummy" which is a truly unique fossil of a Edmontosaurus Annectens. Conditions when this beast died removed moisture very quickly and led to the mummification of the dinosaur. This was then preserved in the fossil showing incredible detail of skin, tendons and soft tissue. It was found in 1908 from the Lance creek area in Eastern Wyoming by Charles Hazelius Sternberg and his sons. It was then purchased by the famous paleontologist Henry Fairfield Osborn and put on display here at the NYC Natural History Museum.

A "small" Holzmaden ichthyosaur has been added to fossilrealm.com - it's just over 4 feet across. #fossilfriday #fossils #ichthyosaur #ichthyosaurs #jurassic

Crocodile rostrums such as this are very rare to find complete from this coast, so when we found this one we were rather pleased indeed! Here you can see the many individual tooth sockets, from the upper rostrum of the crocodile. We were even lucky enough to locate the back of the skull too, containing the eye sockets and muscle pits. #natural #nature #ancient #animals #wildlife #art #ammonite #ammonites #dinosaur #palaeontology #minerals #paleontology #sea #color #whitby #earth #jewelry #dorset #geology #charmouth #lymeregis #bright #yorkshire #coast #reptile #beach #jurassic #museum #fossils #fossil

Meet the pliosaur: a newly discovered species of marine reptile from the Cretaceous period that roamed the seas nearly 130 million years ago. The remains of this ancient creature, including a nearly complete skull, were found on the eroded banks of the Volga river in Russia. Scientists think these creatures were not dinosaurs, but rather cousins of modern turtles. 🖍 : Andrey Atuchin. #science #sciencealert #fossils #reptiles #palaeontology #marineanimals
