Catching the sunset near our trilobite quarry.
Sooo I ended up using the back of the weave because I liked it better than the weave I was intentionally making on the front 🙊😂 But it's finished! I'm keeping this one for myself, as it represents two keystones of my identity: fossils and The Little Mermaid (which inspired the colors and use of the ammonite slice)! 😉 #ammonite #thelittlemermaid #mermaidatheart #fossils #geologist #iamapaleontologist #keystones #thisisme #custom #curiosct #monday #mermaidmonday

We may not have mountains but we have a sexy skyline with buildings in Downtown Houston covered in the prettiest of rocks. Many of us geoscientists, myself included, walk past these geological gems every day without a second thought. Well, Christen from Short Sweet & Lovely @shortsweetandlovely and I have been scouting around Downtown Houston for you. Coming soon to the blog will be walking tours. Stay tuned! . #houstonblogger #wearethecreativeeconomy #thebloglife #powerlunch #texasblogger #creativityfound #tribe #gettingshitdone #texaspride #explore #rocks #fossils #geology #geologyrocks #geologyiscool #urbanhiking #rocksandminerals #geologyisforrockstars #geologyiseverywhere #shortsweetandlovely #collab #collaboration #redshoesredwine #communityovercompetition #lifestyleblogger #houston #htx #houtx #htown #houstontexas

Went fossil hunting with the birthday boy! Here are some of our better finds. Is it sad that every time I pass a large pile of dirt I want to climb it searching for treasures?

Algae, it grows on you. Evolving in the Cambrian, Red Algae (Phylum Rhodophyta) are photosynthetic and so require light. However, Red Algae are best adapted to utilise blue wavelengths of light which penetrates into deep waters. So, Red Algae can be found to depths of 125 metres or more. Members of the Red Algae family have several growth habits existing as: fragments of encrusting, nodular and ridgid branching plants; as erect, articulated, branching or aborescent forms or; as massive encrusters and binders or coatings on other grains. With very high magnification or thin-sections it is possible to see the complex internal structures of the Red Algae. At the 40 x magnification shown here though the Red Algae has the appearance of a calcitic veneer on the surface of a larger benthic foraminifera. This heavy calcification and stable calcite mineralogy leads to typically exceptional preservation of internal and external structures and external outlines.

This boulder WAAAAY up near the top of the valley we hiked was absolutely LITTERED with #crinoid #fossils ! It was remarkable to see, and we made sure to tell the guides back at the preserve center what we had found - they had no idea!

Not only can scientists learn about sharks in the present, but using fossils they can learn about sharks in the past! How many of you have found fossilized sharks teeth before?! Check out @sharkteethantwerp for more amazing finds! #sharks #savesharks #fossils #sharkteeth #learning #research #sharks4kids #sharkeducation

Camels are big! This is a #3dprint of the fused 2nd and 3rd metacarpals (front foot bone) from Camelops hesternus, an extinct Ice Age camel from Hemet, California. The original specimen is in the collections at the @westernsciencecenter. This print was produced on one of our @lulzbot3d TAZ 6 printers, and will go on display in a new exhibit at WSC this Wednesday. #3dprinting #museums #cityofhemet @cityofhemet #diamondvalleylake #ICEAgeproject #pleistocene #iceage #camels #fossils #osteology #scicomm #scientistswhoselfie #paleontology
I have been debating if I should post this video or not post this video....obviously I've decided to post the video. So ecstatic to be able to unearth this unbelievable find. This is the 4th addition to my personal collection of this particular type of specimen. #fossils #fossilsofig #fossilsofinstagram #agate #quartz #crystal #crystals #crystalsofig #crystalsofinstagram #selfcollect #pnw

CCNHM collections manager Sarah @tetrameryx had an exhausting but positive outreach morning - three hours teaching 8th grade students from Christ our King Stella Maris School in Mount Pleasant about evolution and lowcountry fossils! #womeninscience #womeninstem #outreach #education #scienceeducation #fossil #fossils #evolution #paleontology #paleo #sharkteeth #coprolite #sharks #shark #charleston #southcarolina
Closer examination has proven this brachiopod to be a geode #science #fossils
We spent the morning digging in the dirt at Penn Dixie Fossil Park and Nature Preserve during their Homeschool Day. We’ve been there before, but it was great to have a tour guide this time around to point out the different areas in the site, give us a little background history, and help us identify our finds. I wish we could have stayed a bit longer to see if we could uncover some trilobites, but Mr. 3 was only able to hang in there for 2.5 hours (completely understandable). Pictured here are some of the crinoids (sea lilies) we found. They’re an echinoderm related to starfish. The biggest one on the bottom is only about 0.5cm in diameter. Picture taken with my iPhone and @easy_macro #easymacro

In honor of #megalodonmonday , heres a newer addition to the collection. (Yes. I've been collecting for 15+ years !) This 3-3/4" Megalodon tooth was found in Savanah, GA , 4-7 mil years old. Only a few small chips, but in great condition. #megalodon #monday #fossil #fossils #fossillovers #fossilcollector #collection #prehistoric #ancient #shark #sharkteeth #extinct #collections #fossiladdict #megalodontooth #bigassshark
Fun fact: I wrote a 13 page thesis for Allosaurus fragilis with some material on Saurophaganax and Epanterias back in college! The discovery and early study of Allosaurus is complicated by the multiplicity of names coined during the Bone Wars of the late 19th century. The first described fossil in this history was a bone obtained secondhand by Ferdinand Vandiveer Hayden in 1869. It came from Middle Park, near Granby, Colorado, from Morrison Formation rocks. The locals had identified such bones as "petrified horse hoofs". Hayden sent his specimen to Joseph Leidy, who identified it as half of a tail vertebra, and tentatively assigned it to the European dinosaur genus Poekilopleuron as Poicilopleuron valens. He later decided it deserved its own genus, Antrodemus. @sdnhm ・・・ #Allosaurus #AllosaurusFragilis #Theropod #Carnivore #Jurassic #LateJurassic #Paleontology #Paleobiology #Paleoecology #Montana #Wyoming #Utah #Colorado #Biology #NaturalHistory #Research #Science #Dinosaur #Dinosaurs #JurassicWorld #Museum #Education #MorrisonFormation #Prehistoric #Ancient #Fossil #Fossils #Predator #Hunter #Past
My submission for @thedarkroomlab ‘s black and white film photography contest! This is a photo I took this past January on my Canon AE-1 in Chicago at The Field Museum. Sue will soon be taken out of the public eye so that scientists can learn more from her 67 MILLION year old bones. This was my first time at the museum and It was rad to have my mind blown by Sue and to get the opportunity to photograph her ‘ol bones and make a memory. The photo was taken on Kodak Tri-X 400 and developed at The Darkroom of course! #thedarkroomlab_bw18 #kevinpickedthephoto
There be dragons here! @victorea_austin is showing me around her home state of Utah including this dinosaur track frozen in stone. #dinosaur #fossil #utah #utahgram #utahisrad #dinosaursofinstagram #fossils
I’ve been meaning to do a series of uppers and lowers. I think it would have helped me start to recognize what I was finding. Hopefully they’ll help someone else. So to kickstart this series, here are my two favorite Isurus Hastalis aka Extinct Giant Mako. 🦈 #shark #sharks #sharkteeth #Virginia #NNK #fossils #rivermonsters #river #sharktooth #sharktoothhunting #sharkteethhunting #marinelife #ancient #fossil #fossilhunting #beach #fossiladdict #nature #science #beachcomber #beachcoming #potomac #potomacriver #rappahannockriver #rappahannock #ocean #sea #chesapeakebay #mako #giant #ancient
New Colombian amber has arrived with insect inclusions! Colombian amber dates back to the tertiary period about 60 million years ago! Some insects met there end getting stuck in tree sap, but were preserved for millions of years inside the Amber. #amber #amberstone #insects #bugs #millionsofyearsold #colombia #fly #flies #healing #protection #glowingcandle #glowing_candle #gems #crystals #crystalshop #metaphysical #giftshop #zen #geology #gemology #fossils #palisades #palisadesmall #ny #westnyack

Roly pollie...pill bug...doodle bug...trilobite? No that's no insect, it's a fossil of an ancient athropod that were among the first to develop complex eyes. Like the pill bugs we know today they would often roll into a ball shape to ward off predators. • • • • #trilobite #pillbug #fossils #fossil #paleontology #naturalsciencemuseum #naturalscience
