also, are all the fossils that i am going to be identifying be a physical fossil? or can they be on photos too? also do i need a magnifying glass? i don't want to buy one (if my school doesn't have any to borrow to me).

Also, what does it really mean by "Taxonomic classification restricted to the hierarchy on the Science Olympiad Official Fossil
List". So it is like I don't need to know all this:"Protista (kingdom), Foraminifera (phylum), Granuloreticulosea (class), Foramiferida (order), Fusilinidae (family), Fusilinids (genus) for number 1 on the list but just Kingdom Protozoa and phylum forminifera (forams)?
iii. Conditions
Thanks in advance!!!
Compacting the photos and saving space isn't as important for this event, since you can have up to a 3 inch binder. I have one page of information and the back is for photos, I usually have 3 per genus. You should put whatever taxonomic classifications there are, even though they probably won't test you on too much of it. Just in case.

And also do I need to know the subclasses or orders? like for genus astraeospongia. I don't think I do, right?

They can be either physical or photos. You will probably not need a magnifying glass.

Classification questions are theoretically restricted to what is listed on the Fossil List. I would note the full classification of each specimen somewhere.

Hey, does anyone know how to differentiate between coelophysis, and velociraptor? Any thoughts would help!

Velociraptor is smaller, around 2 feet tall. Coelophysis has four digits while velociraptor has three. Velociraptor's inner toe has a large claw.

From my binder: "Coelophysis's skull is long, thin, and curves downward. Velociraptor's skull curves slightly upward,has a pronounced bump at the end of the snout. Coelophysis has three toes on each foot while Velociraptor has four toes on each foot."

Velociraptor had 3 distinct fingers, Coelophysis had 4. Someone correct me if I am wrong.

Another person mentioned this, so I think it's correct. Thanks for the help!
