Fossils, Dinosaurs, Museums and More This site is intended as a springboard to Internet resources on fossils, dinosaurs, paleontology, natural history, and related topics. I hope it proves useful to students, teachers, fossil collectors, paleontologists, and anyone else with rocks in their heads. I am a long-time fossil enthusiast with a special interest in dinosaur tracks (I have a web site devoted to my work on Texas tracks and the related Paluxy "man track" controversy). Feel free to send any comments, suggestions, corrections, or expressions of concern, praise, or outrage. Thanks!
