Here's an instructable for all those fossil hunters out there who find a fossil and decide they want to label it with a call number.

Step 1: Step #1

First you need to find out what kind of fossil you have. There are many ways of doing this. I would recommend buying a fossil identification handbook. I have two and I would recommend that you have two books also. one for out in the field and a second for at home use.
is that a real fosil? and by the way wat is it? it looks like a trilobite
Yes it is a real fossil and it's a trilobite. It's actually one of the most detailed and best trilobites I've ever seen
it is awesome and i love your motto i watch mythbusters all the time
But I&nbsp;don't own it..................I&nbsp;have found my own trilobites down&nbsp;at the Swatara Gap in Pennsylvania, but none of them have been very detailed. The majority I have from Swatara have been <em>Cryptolithus</em> Trilobites and with those it's very rare to get the entire fossil, usually only a small part of it is preserved.
What is a call number actually used for?
Well me and other fossil hunters keep their fossils documeted either in computer files or in a Binder and a call number is put on the back of each fossil so then when you go onto your computer you can pull up the info. on it.
'K, thanks.
<p>Your welcome.</p>
Cool, looks like my dad. Great info btw.
