GRAY, Tenn. - If you have a neat rock or a fossil you're trying to identify, some area experts may be able to help.
The ETSU and General Shale Natural History Museum and Gray Fossil Site held a fossil and artifact ID night Tuesday.
It's an event the museum holds every other month.
People can bring in any item they want identified and the professors and graduate students at the museum will help identify the items.
"It's always neat to see what people do bring in. For me, I love show and tell because you never know when you're going to get some kind of surprise. We actually had a gentleman come in tonight with quite a few kinds of mammal teeth. That was a lot of fun. Me and a couple of graduate students kind of crowded around him and helped him identify his teeth," says Steven Wallace ETSU Geosciences professor.
The museum will skip a fossil ID night in December. The next fossil ID night is in February.
