    I actually think they're pretty cool. My favorites are Mastodonsaurus and Prionosuchus, two of the largest amphibians ever(but I'm sure you already knew that!)

    I came up with a Ancient Amphibian fossil pokemon. I think it would make a better Rock/Water then Carracosta. The reason I think so is because they were the true Kings of the water. I have an interesting story about a fossil skull I found when I was 7 if you want to here it.

    Ok so when I was 7 I discovered this really cool cave in the Mountains. I took regular trips to it because it was my birthday week and I got to spend it in the Mountains. Anyway so 2 days before my birthday I went into the cave and took a flashlight and chalk so I could see my way around and so I could mark where I'd been so that I didn't get lost. So I went really deep in the cave and I found this wall and at first it looked like a normal wall. So then I banged a big rock on the wall and some large pieces of rock came of the wall and there was huge skull that fell out with the pieces of the wall. I thought it was cool and it looked like an ancient amphibian skull. So the next day I came back and the skull was still there I decided to take it to the camp ground but I decided to do it leave it till tomorrow morning. When I came back in the morning I found out that there had been an overnight cave in and the front had collapsed.

    I still visit the cave every time we go there and work on moving the rocks so that I can someday retrieve the skull. The skull was what got me interested in ancient amphibians. I think it might have been a labyrinthodont skull

    ...Just out of curiosity, where exactly were these mountains of which you speak? I might be able to identify the skull for you.

    Favourite Prehistoric Animal: Therizinosauridae (the group, I can't point out any particular one)

    There should totally be a Grass/Rock Tyrannosaur based pokemon, called Treerex. And it won't look like that failed attempt of a T-Rex named Tyranitar.

    Welcome to the club and all that. I agree, there should be theropod Grass/Rock types. So, I created a starter line based on them! The starter is called Grassaurus, and I don't remember the rest's name. They were cloned from fossils, and the line goes somewhat like this:
    Microraptor==> Utahraptor ==>Therizinosaur

    Sounds nice. Any idea what the skull might have been?

    It helped a little but im still not sure what it might be. The article indicates that most of the fossils if not all are invertebrates.

    > Skull

    I very much doubt your fossilized skull story is true, but whatever.

    > Pokemon

    Grassaurus -> Raptopi/Raptimber -> Treerex

    This is more following the Alvarezsauridae -> Dromaeosauridae -> Tyrannosauridae route, but it works.

    I wish I could find animal remains like that. The only fossils I've ever found are plant impressions in shale.

    Where we live, there are mostly seashell fossils only a couple of million years old, but I think mastodon fossils have been discovered here. (Coastal CA FTW!)

    I hear that New England used to be a great crossroads for all kinds of dinosaurs when it was connected to Europe at one point (I think I saw that on a documentary on the History Channel). I live in Maryland, so that's not too far off. There might be some fossils that I just haven't looked for yet. Maybe I have to check out the paleontology section at the Science Center again.

    Once I'm in college, I hope to move to Montana to follow a career of being a paleontologist and possibly author. As you know, Hell Creek is in that state, so I hope to be able to excavate some good fossils.

    I'm heading off to Arran in March to study the Carboniferous Invertebrate fossils that they have there. Especially excited to see the Arthropleura footprints.

    I don't get to do stuff like that but I have a piece fossilized mud filled with pieces of wood for around the start of the Permian. Once I get out of college I plan to be a .... Well its a secret. But lets just say it will revolutionize the scientific world.

    It's almost definitely fake, but I have a Spinosaurus tooth at my house.

    I didn't buy it I found in California. It took forever to find out what time period it was from. Also I exaggerated it is from the late Permian

    I haven't heard of some of those but they're still amazing.
