My collection

Can you identify some of my fossils in my collection?  The pictures I will show here include abound two fiths of my collection.  I have sent this message twice by mistake.  I pressed the post message button instead of the chose file button.

    Hi Dan,

     

    You got a good collection coming on, though I would hate to dust them! There is a lot in those pictures so identification might be difficult but I can see a variety from all over the world. I would take some more photos with fewer fossils in so greater details can be made out. Looking good!

     

    Once you start to specialize you can build up a detailed scientific collection; note one of my drawers containing a few chalk shark teeth.

     

     

    Regards,

    Thomas

        I like that megalodon tooth; sometime you can find whale bones with teeth marks and cuts from predation. Good to hear you like your wood, it can be incredibly interesting as you can gain much information from well preserved specimens.

        The teeth are from the Cretaceous era and were found in the chalk around Bedfordshire, Kent and Sussex. The Hexanchus tooth is a particular favorite of mine.

         

        Regards,

        Thomas
