    Hello

    Do you know where I could post images of marine fossils that I've collected to get help with identification? I've used a couple of fossil forums, but I need an expert opinion rather than amateur guesses, because some of my specimens are unusual.

    Thanks.

    The best bet is to go to a paleontological museum or the relevant part of a university and speak to an expert. Forums, although obviously do have experts, will usually not be as reliable as contacting someone face to face/ individually. As a kid I used to visit the local paleontology museum with my finds and ask there.


    It is by will alone I set my mind in motion.
