  1. I recently found this pair of Pleuroceras ammonites when splitting some concretion material I brought back from Buttenheim in Bavaria, Germany which I visited last May. From the Pliensbachian Spinatum Zone, Lower Jurassic. I wish I brought back more of that concretion material since it was so rich in complete ammonites.

  5. Hi, I have these two same sized Hildoceras, I'm thinking one is a Juvenile as can see the mouth border and one is a large one that has broken, would this be correct and would you say both specimens are the same ? Thanks.

  10. ID please!

    I bought today these two ammonites founded in Serbia (Stara Planina).Can anyone tell me which species is this? Thanks again!

    From the album Ammonites

    For thinking I'm not an ammonite collector, I do seem to have a few. Just wish I could find the rest of them. in boxes somewhere. Someday.
  12. Hi, stumbled on this with the kids. We are all curious as to what it could have been, of anything at all. Really know nothing at all and probably sound silly, but best guess is ammonites? Or is it something completely different, if ever organic? Thanks in advance James

  15. Two Moroccan? ammonites

    A got these two ammonites a while ago, no information on location but I'm assuming morroco. I know I need to clean the matrix off of one, still need to find a my scribe. Any one have any further information?
  16. Hockhockson Brook

    Here's another site you might want to try. If you've ever seen Ralph's MAPS collection this is one of the places where you can find some really big Ammonites. If you look in the boulders at the old dam by Tinton Ave. you can find some , but you are going to have to hammer them out. If you go upstream and look in the riffles and gravel bars sometimes you can find them just laying around. There are gravel bars and riffles all the way up to Hockhockson Rd., but getting to them can be difficult. I'll post more sites as I remember(I've had some strokes so my memory can be difficult) so all can enjoy. Good luck looking and if you like to fish the stream is trout stocked. I forgot to mention this site is in Tinton Falls NJ.
  17. fossil site

    I hope this is the right spot for this information. I use to live in NJ an there is a site that not to many people take advantage of. In Highlands, (Monmouth County) at the end of Shore Drive there is a little park(Popomora). If you walk to the end of the beach to where the boulders start, in the wash and in the rocks you can find many different types of fossils. We have found some really nice opalized ammonite pieces and quite a few baculites. Now I know the Marl Pits are closed , but we always found them on the water side of the Henry Hudson Trail.If you decide to take a walk down the trail about a half mile or so towards Atlantic Highlands is a small stream, there might be a small bridge there, it tends to wash out with the storms. But anyway on the water side we have found some really nice stuff there. I hope this helps someone looking for new sites. While you are there you can swim and fish also. Good Luck.
  18. Isle of Wight Fossils

    Hi guys; I have recently been treated to a nice week down the Isle of Wight and having spent the first day down in Yaverland today I though I would share some of my finds. 1) these both appear to be Vertebra, I'm assuming they are dinosaur as I'm preatty sure I've read somewhere that crocodiles have concave and convex ends to their Vertebra but may be totally of base with that assumption.
  19. Hi fossils friends, Here are some of my last preparations : Lower Triassic Flemingites lidacensis (Welter 1922) - 19 cm
  20. I set off this morning on my first excursion since my return from Canada. Now that I'm settled back in at home again, I was starting to twiddle my thumbs, so I figured it was about time to get back to the Callovian hillside sites in the woods of the Wutach Valley area. Rain was being forecast, but that didn't deter me. Just threw my raincoat, rubber overalls and boots into the car along with my equipment and off I went. I decided to check out a spot I'd already worked several times with varying results. This time it really payed off, since I managed to find a section in a familiar horizon which started giving up some well-preserved ammonites. It's often the case that they just come out in bits or are not in very good condition, but this time I hit paydirt. The best one, although there are quite a few nice ones, is a Macrocephalites with a diameter of 20cm. which should prep out quite nicely. This really was my lucky day. It didn't even rain! As usual I didn't think to take along my camera , which would have made for some nice in situ shots, but at least I've made a couple of pics of the finds in the raw. I'll be starting the prep work tomorrow, so I'll be posting them one after the other here as they're done.
  21. Kilts Rule

    Last weekend, @BobWill was nice enough to take a bunch of us out for some ammonite collecting in the Lower Cretaceous Duck Creek Formation. We had received 3" of rain the day before so the water was a little high. That didn't stop the ammonites from showing up for the event. There were 8 of us and everyone found more ammonites than they wanted to carry. I wound up schlepping a 15" Eopachydiscus 2 miles through the creek to get it back to the truck! Thankfully, the largest Eo of the day at a VERY heavy 18" diameter was found only 200 yards from the truck. My find of the day came in the smallest possible form. I believe to be in the possession of an Eopachydiscus protoconch. Once I prep it, I'll know for sure. I'll post some photos here eventually, but I have one specifically for @JohnBrewer as we all know how much he loves kilts. This kilt has has seen over 50 nights of camping and multiple fossil collecting trips and hiking trips.
  22. Indianapolis Children's Museum

    Hello, I was stopping through Indianapolis and gave their children's museum a try. It was surprisingly enjoyable! The museum covered topics from agriculture to racing to dinosaurs! These photos are from the dinosaur section. I followed the signs to the Dinosphere. I walked through the entrance and down the ramp. At the end of the ramp was a Sarcosuchus cast (no picture sorry). Following the path I emerged into a huge planetarium like structure filled with dinosaurs.
  23. Books for a beginner

    Hi there, I'd like to learn more about paleontology and was wondering which books would you recommend for a beginner? I'm looking for books on ammonites, trilobites and dinosaur paleobiology. Also are there any books on Ankylosaurids around? Thank you for your help. There are so many books I don't know where to start. Jojo
  24. Ammonites huGE

    I walked upon a shale bed covered with these along other things I have not trained my eyes for.
