  1. Is there a way to mark fossil locations on like Google my map easily? Maybe even add a photo which uses it's coordinates to place it self in the map at the right location. Or a map that auto tracks where you walk? I find way to much to manually track it all. Any suggestions is welcome, thanks.
  2. Goal: collect all Pierre Shale formation main fossil specimens. During my fossil hunting trips I collect a lot of different fossils but never take the time to figure out what it is exactly. Here I will record my trips and finds but more importantly try to identify what it is. This list will encourage me to not just look for the big marine reptiles but also smaller things I normally ignore. I understand how unrealistic this goal is but it's fun. Any feedback or suggestions are welcomed! Specimens shown on wiki for Pierre shale. Marine vertebrates

    Ameura missouriensis Head (Cephalon)

    From the album: Missouri Trilobites

    These last few months have been very generous with its fossil output so far. This specimen's head is about 7.5mm long and is what I consider to be very rare. I have only ever found 2 heads in the upper Winterset limestone. In the future, I plan to clean it up a bit, but for now, he stands with his glabella exposed.

    Possible fungi fossil

    Good day everyone, I was out over by the Ratone Plateau, not too far from the purgatory river, and came across these fungi like fossils. I have only heard that mushroom fossils were only found within amber but my father was thinking they were actual fungi fossils. What do you all think? They kind of look like the caps of mushrooms. Any help identifying what these are would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

    Ameura missourienisis

    From the album: Missouri Trilobites

    One of the smaller specimines, but that just makes for better details! Found this little guy in what I call the upper Winterset Limestone member from the Dennis Formation. This pygidium less than 5mm.

    More odd things from the Gravel pile.

    On first inspection I thought it was just some sort of man made goop but it is fossilized and on the side looks a little like some sort of bryozoan I had seen pics of online..... so goop or bryozoan?
  7. Already purchased it but if it's fake I will cancel the sale. Thanks in advance for the help everyone!! I wasn't aware how many fakes were out there of this stuff.. Lots of crappy people out there..

    Devonian edrioasterid or Crinoid?

    From the Mahantango formation of Pennsylvania. Unsure if it’s an Edrioasterid or Crinoid. Thoughts ?
  9. I know I'm not the only one that doesn't live near good fossil deposits, which means that i'm not the only one that has to buy or trade fossils from time to time to build the collection. I thought it would be fun to have an ongoing thread to share our latest great score that we didn't personally find in nature, a thread to share your latest fossil purchase or trade. Let's see what you found at the local fossil show, online or anywhere else other than in the ground.
  10. Was found in the Netherlands in 1995. Not sure exact location. Would like to know what it is and if it has a value of any kind??

    Snake head rock

  12. Possible fossil coprolites in Fossil Janthina shell. New Zealand, Kaawa Formation, Opoitian, Pliocene. What was living in this Janthina that produced these faecal pellets? Hermit crab? other Crustacean? Are there any other similar fossils or living examples?

    Monster ichthyosaur vert

    Began prep on something quite special today. Though I’ll be uploading pictures once completed. I have always said, you always find your best stuff heading back to the car. That certainly can be said for this day. I’d not had much lucky all day, these days I’m looking more for stuff to add to the collection, rather than collecting for the sake of it. Couple of nice ammonites but that’s it. I then walked past a spot I had already walked past that morning, when I noticed what looked like a GIANT vert, laying amongst the shale from a recent cliff fall. Yup. It was. Safe to say my breathing w

    raptor teeth fossil

    These fossils are from the Hell Creek Formation. The seller said it was a raptor's tooth. Can you guess what species of teeth it is? This is the first tooth the second tooth
  15. I found this a few months ago washed up on the beach, it looks like a worn tooth to me but may just be an interesting rock. It caught my eye because of how much different it is to the normal shells/volcanic rock etc found here. This was found in Costa Rica, Puntarenas province (Pacific Side)

    2/2 Douglas Pass Colorado Mystery

    Found in Douglas Pass Colorado decades ago. Revisited and unable to tell if it’s fossil or rock
  18. Hello everyone, greetings. I recently bought some fossil leaves. I contacted the seller and was surprised that the fossils were from here in Nicaragua, as I didn't know there were fossil sites here. I did not find information in pbdb navigator of the exact place where the seller found them since he collects them and found them himself, but in some studies on the net I found that the area of discovery is in the Brito Formation, a sector that covers a large part from the country's Pacific and dates from the Eocene, that is, from about 56 to 34 million years ago, which coincides with other descri

    Morrison osteoderm?

    Hi All, This thing comes from the Morrison formation in Crook county, Wyoming. It's about 2.25 x 1" x 3/8". Any thoughts on what it is? With the veins on both sides, I'm wondering if it's an osteoderm. Thanks!!

    Need help identifying this fossil

    Would love some help identifying this fossil as I have been unsuccessful. I know that it is from an animal of some sort, most likely marine, and from California. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
  22. I'm new to fossil hunting but have found some items that have ignited my interest in this field please help me identify if possible.

    Reliable sources for Fossil ID

    Hey everyone, More experienced hunters than me, what sources do you use for general knowledge and IDing your finds? I have a brachiopod from the order Spiriferida but I can't find anything online to go any more in depth than that. Is there a specific book or website that I should check out?

    Weirdo 2

    So deciding if this is one thing or two things. I am currently leaning towards it being a skinny coral with burrow/root trace around it. What do you see?

    Weirdo 1

    Just a weird impression I would have not looked twice at but it seems to have some material in it that would suggest it is actually a fossil instead of just geological weirdness.
