They do pics because you can't attain some specimens. But they could do better pics. And rocks and minerals are relatively common.

If you have any questions about Rocks and Minerals, I would suggest going to the Rocks and Minerals thread, and Fossils is going away next year, so there's very little point in asking questions about it now.

/facepalm
1. Paleontology is basically the study of fossils.
2. I was talking about events.

What? My point was that this thread has deviated off-topic about an event that's going away. That's all.

Nats div C fossils test had awesome specimens... except one that both me and my partner had no clue... the small one that looked retangular with circles in the 2 corners... a bone, no clue what tho... and we failed on the skull, i thought it was a leg bone... where did they get such an incomplete triceratops skull anyway...?

Actually, I though the fossil specimens were pretty good...

EDIT: Oh, ornithology. >.<


the ornithology test had fine specimens... sure they were stuffed in oversized test tubes, but based on even the faded colors I could still easily ID them all... true this is the person who was third talking but over-all we thought we did bad... ran out of tim, had to skip Qs... however the extra time at the end allowed us to fill in random bubbles on the MC sections...

that was the last scioly test I will ever do :cry: i want to do more scioly... of course all three of my events r gone next year...
