This probably means the event is designed so you can see a good portion (depending on where you lif...

Re: Fossils

I would guess it would've been a bird-hipped dinosaur. For ornithiscians, they're all herbivores. But for lizard-hipped (saurischians) they could be theropods (carnivores) or sauropods (herbivores).

Re: Fossils

That's odd. I can find a decent amount of information for Septastraea, but for Hexagonaria, I have almost nothing.

Re: Fossils

Do ammonites have a radula?

Re: Amphibians and Reptiles

Hey guys

I have a few identification questions:
1. Are there any reliable ways to tell the difference between trachemys, pseudemys, and chrysemys?
2. Are there any good ways to tell apart racers, masticophis, elaphe, pituophis, nerodia, and regina?
