Got a Call Back from the Paleontologist at UTexas

21 August 2008 at 1:34:24 PM

and I sent her the pictures to look at.   I told her that I thought it was a really interesting fossil rock and wondered if it could be a dinosaur footprint or just an interesting rock. She'll get back with me later. She says she does quite a bit of fossil indentification over the internet by looking at pictures (or people emailing her). She also said that cat scans at the local medical center are not the right kind to do IDs of fossils.

I also asked her what the status would be of property rights IF it turned out to be a good fossil. She said that Texas is a property rights state and someone must have permission with a signed agreement to come on your property to do fossil digging, etc.

Really, I'm pretty impressed. It didn't take very long for her to call me back, just a few days and of course I want a paleontologist to look, instead of, say, a radiologist at a medical center.
