Very Eager Volunteers

Tuesday, April 03, 2018

Imagine the mammoth task of being placed in front of a bucket of megafauna mud and being told to find fossils the size of a pin head. Well this was the task ahead for our newest volunteer Steve Young. A commercial photographer from coughs harbor enjoys the small finer things in life, like taking photos of minuscule fungi’s. Luckily for us, Steve wanted to develop he interest in microscopic things and share his skills with us and help build our collection. After two weeks of working through less than a millimeter in size sediments, Steve’s collection of finds was extensive and exciting and including that of a partial lower jaw from a small 100,000-year-old Gekkonid.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you recognise dinosaur fossils’

Fossils are predominantly black coloured and will look different to other rocks in the same area, plus they are heavier than rocks. Often they are broken into irregular fragments and have a porous structure.

Interesting fact: Sometimes if you put your tongue on the rock and it sticks a little bit this can also mean it is a fossil.
