    Cretaceous fossils (NL)

    Hello all, Found these really cool fossils (some weeks ago). The fossils are from the Cretaceous period (shallow marine environment covered Limburg - part of the Netherlands). The fossils are from the upper upper Campanian and lower Maastrichtien (73-69 and/or 72-69 and/or 72-68 mya). I and my girlfriend were searching for fossils and walking in a forest when we found two VERY LARGE echinoids (Echinocorys scutata (Leske, 1778). These are really big and the best ones I have in my collection (one is 9 a 10 cm). The other one is also really big, somewhat flatter,
  2. Taiwan's largest museum devoted only to fossils is located at the southern part of the island, near the city of Tainan at the Zuojhen Fossil Park. Most travelers will start their journey in the capital city of Taipei, but Tainan is only a <2 hour bullet train ride away (the bullet train, or high speed rail, is a destination in of itself- a marvel of speed, comfort and efficiency) and a visit to the Zuojhen Fossil Park is highly recommended. For western audiences, fossil park may be a bit misleading. Its not a park as in playgrounds and grassy fields, more like an industrial park, or complex

    Shark tooth ID

    Hello! Help please with ID. Squatina or some Orectolobid species? Length - 4,5 mm. Age - Cretaceous - Miocene. Location - Western Ukraine. Thanks in advance!
  4. Hey guys! I’m going to be in Arizona for a few months and need to get my fossil hunting itch scratched! I’ll be viewing the petrified forest (and not taking anything of course), but I wanted to know where I could go to find some fossils. I will be getting a permit. As someone who hunts heavily in Florida I can’t wait to see the difference in Fauna and age in Arizona! let me know what you all recommend.

    Shark tooth ID

    Hello again! Help please identify. Height - 4 mm. Age - please probably Middle Miocene. Location - Western Ukraine. Thanks in advance!
  6. Hello Gang! Been Missing in Action for a bit as I was out doing some field work hunting worms. While looking for a place to camp out in the middle of nowhere, I ended up finding a private ranch along the saline river which made my jaw drop (See Photo pulled from their site). Sadly, it was too short of notice for me to check it out in person and the weather was getting epic. However, it turns out they not only allow camping and fossil hunting for a small fee, they encourage it as they are very interested to learn about what they have on their property.

    Fossil ID

    Hello! Help please to identify this fossil. I think that it is something from fish... Lenght ~ 1-1,5 mm. Probably Middle Miocene. Western Ukraine. Thanks in advance!
  8. Hello to everybody! I'm kinda new here, but before I start I must say I really love this forum! It has really great vibes and you instantly can tell that this is a good and friendly community! So, I am ziggycardon, I live in Belgium, close to the border of the Netherlands and when we start speaking geologically, I live on the same cretaceous sediments as where the first major Mosasaurus discoveries where done! Unfortunatly I have never been on a fossil hunt myself and everything currently in my collection was bought or given to me. But I hope to change that soon, as I am dyi

    Greek fossils!

    Not only these are the firsts greek fossils in my collection, but are the only fossils that i have found. I found the fossils in Pikermi - Rafina, Attica (nearly Athens). Total over 4-5 kg (or over 20 specimens). I will post some of these. A huge clam, a vertebra, and some... i don't have idea. Age Pliocene or Miocene. Any help with the ID?

    My Collection

    Hi everyone on Fossil Forum, I am pretty new to fossil collection but I have decided to post what I have currently collected and will continue to update this page with new fossils that I acquire over time. I am now looking to acquire rarer teeth now! Details of Specimen: Triceratops Tooth Hell Creek Formation, Carter County, Montana Late Cretaceous Period (65 Million Years Old) Measurements: 1.5 inches long x 3/4 inch wide x5/8 inch thick Weight: 8.9 Grams No restoration at all. all natural specimen. I love the way this looks and its huge!

    Unobtainable dinosaur fossils?

    This may sound like a stupid question to the more seasoned collectors, but I've recently started buying dinosaur teeth to collect and I can't help but notice a pattern when searching through the various fossil websites. Almost all dinosaur fossils are American or Moroccan. I've seen that international fossil trade is actually illegal in some countries causing some fossils to be unobtainable realistically. Some fossils are also extremely rare as well and are valued much higher making them extremely difficult to find.. Is it really that common for dinosaur fossils to be unobtainable? I don't mea

    Are these fossils?

    Hey all, I recently went to a casino and found this outside of it. Is it a fossil or just some other mineral?

    Fossil clams

    Any idea? I got these in a collection I bought. No info with them.
  14. Location: Missouri Time period: Pennsylvanian Formation: Possibly Upper Winterset Limestone Hello! I happened to come across one odd fossil that I could not recognize Some close ups on the leaves The only thing I could certainly determine it is some sort of Fern but beyond that I am unfamiliar of what species it could belong to My next specimen is a Fern leaf of some sort but due to its poor preservation is hard for me to determine what it is from, any Ideas?
  15. I figured I would share little bit with you guys of some of my favorites out of my collection , the Trilobites I found probably 20 years ago near Grafton Illinois while I was actually geode hunting , The corals ( I'm pretty sure they are corals) were found in Gravois creek in St.Louis ( its chock full of them) .
  16. Friday was a second trip out the the Windmill sites with a quad and a geologic map overlay. I scouted out a site further north that was across the arroyo. I am a geologist by training but not so much about fossils or minerals, mostly tracking layers and mapping.
  17. Today I decided to take a Personal Day today and head down to the cooling lakes and do a little fossil collecting at Pit 11, I was only out for about 2 1/2 hours. The day was cool, 37 degrees and with a 13 mph wind, it made the “feels like” temp 30 degrees. Luckily, I was collecting in a bowl like depression at the top of a high ridge, so I did not feel the wind and I only needed a light hoodie to stay warm. Pit 11 is no way near what it use to be. Back then there was no vegetation and the concretions were easily found. After the reclaiming of the land and reseeding, it

    Potomac river Virginia fossil ID help

    Guys any help on these would be great. 2 are some sort of black shell fossils? The other appears to maybe be a jaw bone? You can see it's missing a few teeth maybe. Just never found these before so curious what they might be. Thanks in advance.

    New York Spots?

    Anyone know of good places in NY (close to NYC and Long Island) for fossil hunting ? Penn Dixie is way too far and I heard there are some good Devonian fossils in the Catskills. Any spot where I can find a sea scorpion or trilobite ?
  20. I'm starting to get into mechanical prep seeing as with the quarantine I have extra time on my hand. My equipment arrived before my projects did so I've been practicing on this invert I had on hand. I believe this is a gastropod? Or is it a bivalve? I can never keep them straight in my head. Anyways, I forgot to take a before picture so I apologize for this awful photo as it was the only one I had: And this is it currently: Obviously not done yet, needs some more work and then some serious clean up to make it look nice but I'm thinking to put it aside for a

    Sunshine State Enjoyment

    My yearly trip to Florida to visit family and friends was just what I needed. Luckily during our visit, we missed Minnesota's most serious cold snap of the year. As always, I get over to the Peace River area and had a great time with @Shellseeker. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to visit @jcbshark as he is in the process of moving but missed seeing him anyways. Jack and I were very successful, after a LONG hike, at finding a secluded spot to sift on a tributary of the Peace River and it gave up some nice treasures. My free time was also spent looking for fossils in and around Sarasota/Bradenton d
  23. I don´t know if I can find the time to prepare fossil hunting trip reports for TFF regularly. However, I will at least try to prepare them regularly for my personal website in pdf format. I would like to share them with you. They are in German, though: Fossil Hunting Trips 2021 (link to my personal website) Thanks! Franz Bernhard
  24. I have been looking into purchasing a quieter compressor. I hear great things about how quiet the California Air Tools units are but some have suggested that the compressors may not last that long. Has anyone here used any of these for fossil preparation? I will typically run a compressor 5-8 hours a day for fossil work. Im looking at the 8010spc but if im only gonna get a few years out of it, it might not be worth the extra cash. Nick
