Fossil collecting is not limited to museums. It is an extremely popular hobby. Fossils are artifacts of living creatures and plants. They are visually fascinating and many are absolutely beautiful. Educators find them extremely helpful, as they permit students to actually see the remains of a long-extinct species. When a student gets to actually hold an eight-inch tooth from a huge Megalodon shark, he or she will never forget the experience. The same holds true with many other fossils.
This poster shows and explains the fossils that are most widely available to private collectors. These include the well-known fish from Wyoming’s Green River Formation, the famous ferns from St. Clair, Pennsylvania, the Chesapecten so abundant around the Chesapeake Bay, and the petrified wood of the American Southwest. It includes such favorites as trilobites and coprolite. The latter is petrified dinosaur dung. Kids love “dinosaur poo poo.”
This poster presents photographs of outstanding specimens. All are accompanied by an illustration of the prehistoric species, except where appearance is unknown due to soft parts not fossilizing. In such cases, an illustration of a closely related modern species is presented. Interesting captions provide information and cite the geological period in which the species lived. A geological time chart puts everything in perspective.
