My main interest is fossil fish, but you will also find some other vertebrates like amphibians, mammals, reptiles and birds here in this album:
Fossils from Solnhofen, Messel, Holzmaden, Liaoning, Bergisch Gladbach, Green River, Linton, Mazon Creek, Monte Bolca, Fiume Marecchia.....and other places around the world.
I don't have all that many teeth like a lot of collectors here in this Forum, but I have found, purchased or traded for a few fishy things along the way.
Update New Year's 2019: The collection has been growing thanks to trades, purchases and my own field finds.
Brachiopodes are sometimes not at all easy to identify down to the species, particularly the orders of the Rhynchonellida and Terebratulida which have innumerable variations and species in Jurassic times, for instance. So it could be that I'm not always right, which is why there are a lot of question marks.
The overwhelming majority of this Ammonite fauna is preserved as limestone molds. But they can nevertheless make very pretty pets. There is a seemingly unendless amount of sites which can be visited since a great expanse of these layers is exposed from the north of Switzerland over the Swabian Alb up into the Franconian Alb in Bavaria. The forms and variations of this fauna are also manifold and the species and genera are being continually moved about or renamed, so I can't guarantee that my IDs are up-to-date.
Fossils found in the North Sulphur River , Ladonia, TX. Identifications are primarily done by myself, so don't hesitate to correct them.
Before you go, check the water level ! Ideal hunting is usually < 3'-2'
The Cretaceous fossils are from the Ozan formation (~ 86-88 Ma), and mammal material from the Pleistocene or younger.
