  2. Fish Heads in North Georgia?

    It may not be! More wood perhaps? I just hate backyard mysteries. Sometimes when you get an image in your head it’s hard to shake it and see something else!
  3. New Mazon Creek Collection

    Here is the other shrimp-like fossil I found open in Pit 11. Again it's very small and I found it already opened. It's sort of red-colored. I would guess another Acanthotelson.
  4. CP or Dnsons ARO

    Thanks again . Do you know if the ARO 8315 would be similar to the cp9160?
  5. Beauty Brachiopods NJ Cretaceous

    Any freshwater in the creeks, or just salt? I don't get much exposure to salt in the Chicago area, but I've done salt twice from shore. Once in Long Beach, CA and once in Nassau, Bahamas -- both times from shore. Corbina in CA and barracuda in the Bahamas, nothing over 3 pounds.
  6. Fish Heads in North Georgia?

    Sorry but I don’t think this is a fish head. Some other members will be able to give you an accurate ID on what it is.
  7. Air abrasive system

    @will stevenson What sort of stuff are you looking to prep?
  8. NJ Stream Ammonite

    @Carl @erose Thanks for the ideas. What era are those species from? Generally, in NJ the streams are cretaceous, but from what I gather the area I was in might have been of older origin. The Pycnodonte does resemble the spiral of the shell somewhat, and the Gryphaeostrea vomer certainly has a similar appearance.
  9. Mazon Creek ID’s

    The thought crossed my mind when I first saw it. It does and it doesn't look like one. I'm looking for some defining feature and don't see any, but that only means I don't see them, not that they aren't there. Someone more experienced with MC insects may see something I don't.
  10. Fish Heads in North Georgia?

    Hello all! This is my first post in the forum besides the introduction. I’m open to any and all interpretations on this piece. Did I just find a fish head in my backyard? There are tons of fossils (marine and palm) pouring out of the hills on my property. I’m so close to Chattanooga (10 minutes away), I imagine we would share similar geology but I’m unsure and try not to make assumptions. Yay for the scientific method! Found on the surface at the base of a shallow ravine among lots of fossil palm wood, shale outcroppings, and some volcanic(?) glass. Northern Walker co, Georgia, USA. Pictures are as follows... 1) “Right” side 2) “Left” side 3) “Top” 4) “Bottom” with “mouth” facing left 5) “Back” side with “top” at the top of photo 6) “Underside” with “mouth” at bottom left of photo 7) The location behind my driveway that keeps vomiting out fishy bits and petrified wood!

  12. Sara: The World Traveling Ceratopsian

    Don’t worry, keep it on hold for a while, I’d rather you didn’t visit the post office and risk getting covid 19 than me recieve it a month sooner
  13. Planolites burrows?

    Pretty much, Haha.
  14. Tiny tooth ID needed

    +1 for archaeolamna
  15. Trilobite IDs

    Kermits are so cute.
  16. Dino poop or just a rock?

    Yep, @Tidgy's Dad is correct (as usual). Coprolite will generally have a very smooth texture. Interesting piece!
  17. Three shark teeth for ID

  18. Today
  19. @will stevenson you are up next. That said, I didn't know if we wanted to put this on hold (like the rolling auction) for the time being?
  20. Another Multiblock

    Very beautiful! At least we can see here some fossil hunting since in my country it is very risky.
  21. Dino poop or just a rock?

    Thanks, yes very interesting!
  22. Dino poop or just a rock?

    Eroded sandstone, by the look of it. Interesting what nature can do.
  23. Dino poop or just a rock?

  24. Dino poop or just a rock?

    I was wondering if this could possibly be a coprolite? Or just a rock that has formed this way over time. Found in the Rocky Mountains of Wyoming. Thanks for your input!
  25. Only a moth eaten note for an i.d.

    I think @digit has nailed it. Bravo.
