  1. Plate of armor?

    Hey guys! I was in one of my favorite Pennsylvanian spots in East Kansas finding the usual brachs and bryos when all of a sudden this popped out at me. Any ideas as to what it might be? I’ve never seen something like this in my area before. Thanks.
  2. Newark Supergroup fish (Bergen NJ)

    Hello! I was cleaning out the trunk of my car and found some material from a hunt at North Bergen NJ a few months back. I cracked a few open and found this one. My big question is, on the right side, is that a fish skull or just a coprolite or something? @Jeffrey P @Fossildude19 Thanks! -Frank H
  3. Weird skull. Catfish?

    Finally made it out to the Peace River yesterday - the river is still a little high at most spots, but this winter has been too rainy to be picky about the gauge height. We found some small teeth and the usual minor things - broken mammoth tooth plates, antler, scutes, dugong rib, etc. We did find one oddball thing that I am fairly certain is a catfish skull. At first glance, laying in place, it looked like a snake skull, but on closer examination it appears to be a fish. I did some Google searches, but most of the catfish skulls I saw looked a bit different than this. Gar maybe? Eel? or ?
  4. Big Brook Treats

    I wanted to post a couple pics from this weekend. I found a few teeth and things I am happy with. I could use a verification on the identities though. Thanks for looking!! Andy I think these 2 teeth are both Cretolamna Appendiculata. A very nice fish vertabra? And finally my favorite bivalve to find in the brook. I can't identify it for you though. It reminds me of the giant clam that tried to eat Batman and Robin back in the 60's.
  5. I had a fun hike at the North Sulphur River Texas yesterday. I figured it would be picked over but I found a pretty remote spot with my 4x4. The one sawfish tooth I found in a small creek a few days before. Everything else is from yesterday. It was a great day for Cretaceous coprolite (Poo). @GeschWhat The one coprolite is full of fish verts, bones and fins.
  6. Hi everyone, My last hunt of 2018 was incredible. And quite surprising too! For Xmas, we went to Middelburg in Zeeland to visit my mother's family, which is always a huge load of fun for me because I get to hang out with all my cousins, that I don't see very often. Anyways, one of the days, they all wanted to do a big walk on one of the beaches. At first they wanted to go to Dishoek, but I managed to convince them to go to the Banjaard instead. Once arrived, we split into 2 groups: one was my mother, my eldest cousin (18), my 2nd-youngest cousin (6), and I. All the rest went to the other group. The other group just walked, but our little group did something much more interesting... You guessed it: fossil hunting! As soon as we got onto the beach, we almost immediately found our first fish vertebra, but after that we seemed to have hit a small dry spell for nothing really worthy was being found. A few common fossil bivalves here and there, but nothing more. For my two cousins, it was their first time fossil hunting, and we had to give them a few examples to show them what to look for. I told them to focus on the fish vertebrae, because these were the easiest to recognize. The smaller one also did a lot of shell-hunting on her own, always picking up the most colorful ones and saying this one was Mama shell, this one Papa shell, this one Sister, etc until she made one giant family of orange shells Then after about an hour or two of hunting with rather little success, we finally hit these little shell banks on the beach. And there, BINGO! Gastropod after gastropod, we couldn't stop finding an incredible amount of them. On the Dutch shores, fossil (and modern too) gastropods are generally much less common than fossil bivalves. So the amount we found here was very surprising!
  7. Colleagues, I was collecting on the shoreline of Purse park in Maryland, a beautiful site along the Potomac river. I'm hoping you can help me with your thoughts as to the identification of a few small fossils. The ruler is in centimeters. 1. The first photo appears to be a scute. Is this from a crocodile? 2-4. The next three photos are of a very small fossil which appears to be a double crowned tooth. The base is flat and the crowns are cuboid in shape and flat on top without any ridges. ideas? 5. The final photo is a tiny bone. I'm comfortable that it is fossilized and not modern. It appears to have the shaft of a long bone, or potentially a phalange, but the terminal surface is almost similar to that of an ear bone or the zygomatic arch of a bird skull. I'm a veterinary pathologist and I'm at a loss. I would welcome your guidance.
  8. Hey! I got these fossils for my birthday and I just wanna know if they are real or not? They are classified as fish fossils, Great White teeth, and petrified wood. These are all from my local gem shop which I bought many real fossils from before.
  9. So a bit of newbie advice please I keep my fossil collection on an bookshelf. Exposed to the indoor elements (heating etc) as it was. Mainly fish and plants with a few Trilobites and Ammonites Am thinking mainly in terms of the fish and plants. Is there any chance that part of the fossil will flake off the matrix? Would some sort of lacquer spray offer better protection? If so, any suggestions?
  10. Hello, Could this little fish have been a bit painted or does it seem totally natural preserved? Thanks for the help!
  11. Baby Enchodus marchesettii?

    Greetings! I have in my collection what I believe to be a baby Enchodus marchesettii from Lebanon. The fish is about an inch long and bears a close resplendence to my adult Enchodus. I was wondering if anyone else here has a confirmed baby Enchodus and could send some pictures so I could compare! I'll hopefully get around to posting a picture of it soon!
  12. Good evening, I'd like to ask if anyone knows if it's possible to find fish fossils in jurassic mudrock. As far as I can tell, it must be exceedingly rare in Slovakia.
  13. Fossil Fish ID

    I recently bought this fossilized fish online. I was wondering if anyone could identify the species and perhaps pinpoint the locality/formation. Thanks, Seann
  14. Green River Fish Painting

    I bought a small set of paints recently in a medium I had never used before, gouache. It's a lot like watercolor, but more opaque. I've always liked the look of watercolor but I've been more comfortable with acrylics. I thought I'd give the gouache paints a try, and I think I'm going to like them. Here's a Knightia I painted today, with an attached fossil Knightia. At least I think it's a Knightia. It's not preserved terribly well. I'm planning on painting some more knightia, probably a school of them, then a Diplomystus and maybe move on from there. It should be interesting.
  15. Fossils from the new guy

    I'm brand new to Fossil Forum, and can't afford the big splashy wall display fossils, so my "collection" is modest, but it's a start. I have three of these fern plates from St. Clair, PA, and two diplomystus fish fossils from the Green River formation in Wyoming.
  16. Megalichthys Linocut Print

    On finding a Megalichthys scale fossil from the Late Carboniferous in my local stream I designed, carved and printed a lino-block of the carnivorous freshwater fish. In the same slab of rock that the scale was found were Lepidodendron and Calamites fossils that would have been deposited at the bottom of the coal swamp. I would like to have thought of this fish hiding in the murky waters alongside these plants and I based my reconstruction on this. I plan to do a series of three including Rhizodopsis and Rhabdoderma, alongside their respective surrounding vegetation. Credit where credit is due the general proportions and pose of the fish are based on a reconstruction by ДиБгд as seen on Megalichthys' Wikipedia page.
  17. Eocoelopoma sp.

    From the album Isle of Sheppey Eocene

    This is a beautiful example of the Eocoelopoma sp. fish from the Isle of Sheppey in Kent, UK.
  18. Hi I thought this fish was quite interesting but as the seller provides very little information and I see lots of composite fish I wanted to see what you guys thought
  19. This little fishy

    Greetings! I was totally captivated by this and snapped it up at our Gem Society Auction, a donation , and I have no information on it. Appears to be in a slab of shale? Imprint is about 3" long (pen next to it in photo 1 to show width of slab) Photo 3 is the backside of it. Any help appreciated - especially just to know if I was an implusive idiot to bid on this!
  20. This spring break (March 17th-23rd) my girlfriend and I are planning a trip in Utah, Wyoming, and Colorado. It looks like most of the big dig sites are closed for the season, which was a disappointment for us to see. The tentative plan was to go through Kemmerer from Salt Lake (home,) and hit the digs sites there, go through Vernal to the Quarry and the Prehistoric Museum there, then to Dinosaur National Monument in Colorado with a possibility of hitting Price Utah and the Cleveland Lloyd Quarry on the way back. Without any of the digs open, it seems like we're just trying to find simple things to kill our time, but we'd rather be out doing more engaging fossil hunting or learning. Does anyone have recommendations for areas somewhere nearby where our travels will take us? Any suggestions for digs, museums, cool fossil shops, or even just pretty places to camp are all welcome and greatly appreciated!
  21. Help Id - 2 Piece fossil

    I need help identifying the attached fossil. It is split into two pieces but can combine into one. It was acquired from a local estate sale so I do not know any details about it. Please help.
  22. I want to know this fish

    This fossil from pohang, south Korea miocene I want to lnow species
  23. Plate-like Bone Structure? - NSR

    So found this recently - any educated guesses on what it is? I have found similar material, and IDs seems to range from fish bone chunks to turtle shell. This came from North Sulphur River near Ladonia, and is believed to be late Cretaceous. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks, and Happy New Year!
  24. Hi, This Coccostius cuspidata is of interest. Not too expensive. Thoughts.? @Fossildude19
  25. Hi, my daughter found this in the ocean off of Sanibel Island, Florida US. We tried comparing it to shark teeth, but it doesn't seem to match any that I've seen. Hopefully someone here can solve our little mystery! Thank you for looking! I am going to attach the other photos in subsequent posts because I am getting an error that I am only allowed to upload 3.95MB, and each photo is only around 1mb so I am not sure what I am doing wrong.
