  1. Hi all. A real Newbie here wondering if anyone can ID this as Coprolite? It's 3" in length and weighs 100 grams (it's hard as rock). I found it amongst all the rocks on the beach on the eastern coast of the island (Georgia Straight side). Does that mean that it may have come from an ancient sea creature? Thanks for any info. Cheers!
  2. Hey all! Hopefully the pics are decent enough. I found this odd looking rock at my feet while out fishing in a creek in South Eastern British Columbia in the East Kootenays region. Any insight or info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

  4. Hi all, hope everyone is safe and healthy in these troubled times. What a great time to go over your collections and plan for the next trip. Found some info regarding fossils (Geo report) and petrified wood found near Stemwinder Park, Pickard Creek area between Princeton (fossil mecca) and Hedley B.C. Anyone know of the site? Example from someones find, undisclosed spot. We were going thru that area for work, now cancelled, so can't really justify the exploratory trip, but love to dream. . Just noticed the auctions! Must check here

    Petrified wood?

    I found an odd piece of rock when my apartment has it's second floor garden soil removed. My neighbor said that it looks like petrified wood but I just want to make sure. Thanks.
  6. Hi I decided to make this since the new Tyrannosaur from Alberta’s Foremost Formation, Thanatotheristes deerootorum has just been named and described. Enjoy!! Tyrannosaur bearing Formations in Canada: Formations in Alberta but most of the Formations on my list are I Alberta anyway. Horseshoe Canyon Formation 74-68 million years ago, Alberta: Albertosaurus sarcophagus, possibly Daspletosaurus sp. but no compelling evidence so far. Oldman Formation 78.2-77 million years ago, Alberta: Daspletosaurus torosus, Gorgosaurus sp. Foremost

    Fossils?

    I'm very new to fossil collecting and would like to check if these rocks are fossils. My apartment was built in the 80s and is currently undergoing massive construction due to the rapidly deteriorating structure of the building. I was given permission by strata to collect a few rocks from the discard pile and I came up with these. https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1l7M5NQVfFNXUXIxwqfopnE_wnq1kCiijePd5yEZRyRI/edit?usp=sharing
  12. Hello guys! So at this new school my new friend Brad heard about my fossil hunting trips in Florida, and he wanted to have a go. This Christmas he will be going to British Columbia to visit his relatives. I want to ask, are there any fossil hunting sites in British Columbia and is taking them away legal? Thanks. Ho Lam PS. He will be staying very close to the American border, near the coast. He told me his parents drove him to Seattle. So I imagine he won't be far from the US, and might want to know some sites there as well.

  14. Hi there, Posting here after hours and hours of research and not being able to find any answers. In around 1974, my mother was walking up a small river on or near the border between southern Alberta and southern BC, Canada, and she stumbled across what looked like a smooth, polished rock. She picked it up, and realized it was a rather large canine tooth from an animal. She thought it was a bear tooth, which I don't agree with - doesn't seem to be the right shape. She brought it to a jeweller and had it capped with silver and made into a pendant. The jeweller said it was the hardest t

    Dried mushrooms or fossils

    Not sure what I've come across. Not even sure what this type of mushroom is called. These were stored away in my parents basement. The box is labelled British Columbia... Is there any way to tell if these are just dried or actual fossils?

  23. Originally interpreted as a green algae with a relationship to the modern green alga Caulerpa, Margaretia dorus is now considered to be the feeding tube of the hemichordate Oesia. The position of Oesia is uncertain. Originally described as an annelid worm by Walcott (1911), a recent reinterpretation as a chaetognath (Szaniawski, 2005, 2009) has been vigorously rejected, and a position closer to the hemichordates proposed instead (Conway Morris, 2009). Margaretia dorus would now be a junior synonym of Oesia disjuncta Walcott, 1911 Lit.: Simon Conway Morris and R. A. Robison (
  24. Hello All, I am not only new to this group, but I am new to fossil/rock hunting . I live somewhere , where there was much ice age melt glacial activity and I have hundreds of fossils. at the risk of sounding insane, I found this one in my pocket when I woke up one morning . Have others similar to it, but no idea how I came to be in possession of this one in particular. Any help is appreciated... I have other angles of the same, but I am unsure of how to shrink the file size of the photo. Thank you
