As a contrast, I visit Dick Mol quite often. His collection has almost thrown him and his wife out of the house. In the living, there is a small corner still for visitors and it's possible to stand in the kitchen for cooking. Other than that, it's fossils and fossils and the collection is still growing. I've suggested some migitation solutions. But that was wrong, fossils need to be right there where you can get to them for investigation.

Now if you'd look at the commercial prizes for fossils, his collection is worth many millions, I'm sure. But that's even worse mentioning, fossils are there for scientific research, not for commercial ends, disgusting to even start thinking about that.

I am sure some of these are vertebra, the first one measures 3 1/4*2 3/4 and is 1 1/8 deep.

I'm no biologist but that sounds like it would come from a pretty big animal...do you know what it is?

If it's vertebra then it looks like fish, mammal vertebra are much more complicated.

I got my fossils removed when I was a kid. It wasn't so bad, and I got ice cream later. These days they probably have even better anesthesia and techniques, etc., so there's really nothing to be afraid of.

Looks pretty similar and it seems that fish was not far off.

Some development company has bought the site, i just so hate them, it is good that they seem plagued by ghostly events.

What a relief to see the topic of this thread! Going by the title, I was expecting to hear about another of your medical problems.
