The Ramada Inn Continued
Friday February 2nd - The weather was cloudy and rainy today with a high of 63 degrees.

An assembler at work on one of Maxilla and Mandible's replica skeletons in the Ramada Courtyard.

R.J.B. Rock Shop displayed these unusual sand calcite crystals from Rattlesnake Butte, Washabaugh County, South Dakota at Room 169. The outdoor group of specimens were priced from $4 to $100. The larger specimen they kept indoors was offered at $750. I rather liked some of these calcite specimens. They were subtle, unusual, visually interesting, and affordable. However, I didn't buy one. Maybe next year...

Custom Paleo in the Ramada Inn Conference Room showed this beautiful Oligocene Hoplophoneus sp. It's from the White River Formation in Douglas, Wyoming. It was offered at $12,000.

Custom Paleo also showed these magnificent Merycoidodon gracilis, also from the Oligocene epoch and the White River Formation. There's an adult, a juvenile, and babies all together in this piece. It was admired by all who saw it, and it took some waiting to get these clear shots. This specimen was offered for $30,000. It didn't look like Custom Paleo was going to have a hard time getting their price, either.

There was no shortage of dinos in Fossil Hall at the Ramada. In here you could even purchase a restored Triceratops horridus skull, more than half original, for under $40,000!

Triebold Paleontology presented these nifty Pachycephalosaur replica skeletons. The original was found in the Hell Creek Formation of South Dakota.

Here's a nice fossil that was shown by Geoscience Enterprises in Fossil Hall. This pair of Keuchiosauri youngi from Henan Province, China were offered at $4,800. This dealer is a specialist in Indiana crinoids.
