Posted by MikeR in Southern Comfort, 23 February 2013 - * * * * * · 4,709 views

When I began this blog late in 2010, my intention was to report on recent field trips however, with the exception of one excursion each into the Upper Miocene, Lower Pliocene and the Calabrian Pleistocene, all of my posts have concentrated on the Upper Pliocene of the US Atlantic and Gulf coastal plains.  I already had an extensive collection of Flor...

June 5, 2010 Barry held his camera barely two feet away from the back of an Agkistrodon piscivorus . Although a small snake, it was still very dangerous and he positioned his camera based on years of experience with these reptiles. Known more commonly as a Cottonmouth or Water Moccasin, the twelve inch juvenile snake had coloration similar to the closely...

Quick Post: The Bucket So I thought that I would do quick little posts along with the more in depth ones.  I decided that I can use these to answer questions or explain one thing quickly.   This time I decided that I would talk about the orange bucked I have sitting on the floor. It is a dust trap machine.  It uses water to catch the a...


Caloosahatchee 2015

Posted by MikeR in Southern Comfort, 16 June 2016 - - - - - - · 507 views

A topic early last year in the Fossil Forum asked “What are your goals for 2015”.  My response in that discussion was a desire to collect from the Duplin Formation in South Carolina to expand upon the species list within my Pliocene Project.  Although I did not have the opportunity to bring those specific goals to fruition, I did add...

Masiakasaurus vs Noasaurus! Welcome to the first entry of my dino blog! I figured for the first entry I should do something exciting and personal  to me, so I'm doing a face-off between my two favourite dinosaurs: masiakasaurus and noasaurus! These two dinos are roughly the same size and are the two smallest abelisaurids found so far. Before we get into the  match-u...

Getting Started - Reading and Learning

Posted by JenniferinFL in A Beginner's Foray into Fossiling, 27 February 2016 - * * * * - · 1,385 views

Some Background: I was already somewhat familiar with the idea that one had to have a license to collect certain fossils. As a child, I'd spent enough summer days at Kelly Rock Springs to find the occasional 'other fossil' in addition to the plethora of shark teeth usually found. These other fossils would get enjoyed for the afternoon and then left behin...

To date, I have found a few hundred shark teeth of assorted species and condition, around 100 belemnites and then various other items while screening for fossils at the Green Mill Run.

I'm looking to plan a trip for shark teeth hunting possibly in Summerville, SC. Im currently in Pender County, NC, so Green Mile Run isnt out of the question. Any suggestions, locations or people who want to group up? Haven't had too much experience, but i've leant its the company that matters over what you find.

The Psychology And Philosophy Behind Collecting

Posted by AJ Plai in Dead Dino is Art , 11 September 2014 - * * * * * · 3,170 views

Sigmund Freud theorized that the act of collecting ties back to the time of our toilet training. Freud suggested that the loss of control and what went down the toilet was a traumatic occurrence to us human and thus in our subconscious we develop the desire to collect things as a mean to try to gain back not only control but “possessions” of t...

Hello everyone! I thought i'd just make the one blog for pretty much everything that i find or want to post, rather than different blogs for different types of specimens, as i'm not a particularly busy hunter. If ever i go on a fossil hunting trip, or uncover a fossil in my back garden, then i will probably post pictures on here, as well as anything...

Hello to The Fossil Forum! Lately I am starting a souvenir collection of Aetobatis fossils.
