The 40th annual MAPS Fossil Expo was held April 6-8 in Iowa City, Iowa. This is the world’s largest fossils-only show. Many vendors had material for sale, there were several nice displays, and quality presenters spoke on a variety of topics from extinction to trilobites.
Going into each Expo, I hope to acquire a few nice fossils for the collection. And the show this year did not disappoint: there were many specimens that drew me in, though I somehow resisted buying all of them. Below are pictures of some newbies now in the collection.
So, a very successful show. If you would like to learn more about MAPS (Mid-America Paleontology Society) and the show, go to their web site at www.midamericapaleo.org. And mark you calendar for the Expo in 2019 (March 29-31)!
