I've been an amateur fossil hobbyist since I was a wee boy in short pants. This is what I'd do all the time if I could retire early.
I mostly collect within my region, with rocks that are predominantly Devonian in age. My collecting specializes in trilobites, but I also tend to pick up other interesting fossils along the way.
I am also a member and moderator at The Fossil Forum, one of the largest online discussion boards dedicated to all things fossils on the Internet. I am also a member of the Hamburg Natural History Society.
Please note: I am not a palaeontologist, but a passionate collector. There will no doubt be errors in some of my posts, and so anything identified or discussed here should be considered a "best guess" based on my limited exposure to the literature and in consultation with professionals in the field.
