When I was little I was fascinated with Paleontology. I even wanted to become a Paleontologist when I grow up. But that was back in Middle school.

Well, I'm still interested in it, but now I intend to become a writer and a linguist/translator.

I used to want to be one, but I'd hate all of the dust and dirt in Montana, Mongolia, etc. So, I'd rather study them. I also own the right rib of a Stegosaurus. :DD

a fossil part of a dino? Sounds neat.

As for paleontology, you could try to specialize in doing the labwork parts instead of the in the field stuff, removing the rocks around the fossils, preparing them for display, ect.

If you are interested in Palentology, Stegron, you might know the answer to this question ... so if I may ask: an exhibit at the American Museum of Natural History claims that a toothbrush is sometimes used to clean or brush the dirt away from fossils, rather than using a shovel or something. Is this true, or an exaggeration on their part?

I'm sorry if it seems a bit "out of the blue", but I've been wanting to confirm or disprove that piece of information since I was eight years old.

I've heard some use dental tools to clean the fossils.

I've heard some archeologists like to use dental tools also.  Not sure if any of that is true about archeologists or paleontologists since I'm neither nor have any friends who are one.

Well, it makes sense; ancient artifacts and fossils are very fragile.

& dental tools are designed for fine detailed work.
