Inside the Collections: Fossil Sharks and Ammonites

744 views 3 days ago
Thanks to a major donation of the collections of paleontologists Royal and Gene Mapes of Ohio University, over 540,000 marine fossils have been added to the Museum's collection. Most of the collection is from the Paleozoic era, around 240-350 million years ago, and includes both marine invertebrates like ammonites, as well as fossil fish and sharks. The wealth of well preserved specimens in the collection allows Museum scientists to explore new questions and technologies.

In this video, Museum curators Neil Landman and John Maisey talk about the importance of this new addition to the Museum's collection, and the interesting questions that have risen from its specimens.
