Cincyevolution Website

I found the website for the Cincinnati Museum Center so I decided to quote their own words to describe it. Hopefully, they will start posting some of their fossil images soon.

"Welcome to this introduction to science and natural history at Cincinnati Museum Center. This is the gateway to field and collection-based research in the departments of invertebrate and vertebrate paleontology and zoology and a portal to information on education, conservation and research at the Richard and Lucile Durrell Edge of Appalachia Preserve System. Click on the links above to visit the sites for each department."

I have been waiting to see a better picture of their Cladoselache Devonian shark fossil:

Also the Dry Dredgers profiled a recently published book on Ordovician fossils from Canada the seems to cover some found in the Kentucky area. It is called SOUTH-CENTRAL ONTARIO FOSSILS: A Guide to the Ancient Marine Life of the Region by William A. Hessin.
