Bringing more history to the present

Today was a road trip to Tallahassee Florida to meet up with a friend I haven’t seen in almost a year and to attend a fossil show… where past meets present.  I’m not one to write much so I hope you enjoy the visuals of my day trip.

Met a new friend at the show who had lots of interesting toys: cameras!!!  I now have a new wish list 🙂

    • cool! i’m actually about 2 hours away 🙂 It was lots of fun. Met several new people i hope to do some fossil hunting and scuba diving with this coming year.

  1. “I’m not real sure what this fellow once was.”
    My guess is a seal, going on the sharp double pointed molars.
    The large single tooth would be a whale.
    Eclectic collection of shots, very nice!

  2. Your tooth labeled “mastodon” is actually the tooth of a Mammoth or a modern-day elephant (depending on its age).. Take a look on Google or another search engine. The teeth are very different.

    Nice web site, by the way.
