    A Fossil A Day.....

    A Fossil A Day....keeps the blues away! Or something like that... I started an Instragram account (jamielynnfossilquest) and am posting a fossil a day, so I figured I should do that on here, to REAL fossil enthusiasts! I'm a few days behind, so I will start out with a few more than one a day but then it will settle down to One Fossil (but I will admit, I'll probably miss a few days, but I'll double up or whatever.) I'll start with Texas Pennsylvanian era, but will branch out to other locations and time periods, so expect a little of everything! So enjoy A Fossil A Day! Texas
  2. Hi I’ve been to some fossil sites over the year including: batesford quarry, Beaumaris fossil site and jan juc, but I’ve been trying to find more places online but unfortunately I haven’t been able to find any places on small forums etc mostly just the popular places most people know of. If anyone knows of any places that they are willing to share or talk about I’d be greatly appreciated and if you don’t want the place as public info I’m open to private messages
  3. Today I drove out about 50 miles to attend an auction that is held a few times a year. This auction usually has Native American artifacts, Chinese artifacts, old fishing equipment, fossils and other odds and ends. The auction starts at 10:30 am and runs several hours. Today I left at 2:30 pm and there was still about 150 lots to auction out of the original 450 or so lots that the day began with. Today there may have been about 50 people in attendance and by the time I left, there were maybe 20 people left. There is no charge to enter and no additional fee is charged to you

    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!
  5. 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

    Shell fossils new Zealand

    Hi there all, I'm new to this. Please help... View the photos attached and any info would be amazing. Thanks kindly. My name is che-ruby wood.
  7. My husband and I went on a little "tour" of Mississippi on a three part "hunting" trip....for fossils, ancestors and ghosts. Before you get all grammatical, I didn't hunt my ancestors, but I did hunt for their gravesites. I have ancestry 7 generations back in the Natchez area of southern Mississippi and had been there a few times for family reunions while growing up. But it's been at least 35 years since I was last there. So we decided to make a little road trip around the state to visit not only my ancestors, but also a tour of as many Native American mounds as we could fit in the trip - f
  8. I have decided to start a thread showing pieces from my collection. I usually post in the "mailbox score" thread, but have found that my additions get lost in the volume of postings in the thread. So my collection will be in my own thread.

    An Odd One Found In Florida

    Good morning everyone! I was hoping someone would be able to help me identify this weird looking fossil. I researched it for days and think it may be a really worn down sea robin skull! It is the size of a US quarter (24.257 mm in diameter) I found it while sifting for sharks teeth in Fernandina Beach, Florida (Nassau county). Anything helps! Thanks in advance!

    What is it?

    Hello! Help please to identify it. What is it? Max. length 3 mm. Age: Early Eocene. West of Ukraine. Thanks in advance!
  11. Hi Everyone, Hoping to have some help finding out what these are (appreciate that some these will probably just be some random rock or stone). First picture is just the results from a couple of times going around the rocks or beach at the Warren, Folkestone which I don’t think is terrible for not really knowing what we are doing! The up close ones i’m not entirely sure what they are if anything at all! Also for reference thats a 2p coin don’t think that its obvious to see. any thing else can help you help me let me know and tha
  12. Hello everyone, and welcome back to another trip report! Last week, me and my family went to France once again, but this time to northern France, near Cap Blanc Nez. Cap Blanc Nez is a well-known fossil-hunting site for its ammonites and other fossils. It is located quite near the coast of England, and if the weather's clear you can see the cliffs of Dover very clearly. Day 1: it's a start The first fossil trip was rather disappointing. We walked down the stairway to the beach and headed directly to Grand Blanc Nez, the main landmark in the area. We started search

    Bobcat Mandible?

    Found in West Texas (Rocksprings, Texas.. Sutton county). Found this while walking a ranch. Pretty sure it's a bobcat mandible, but wanted confirmation since I'm new at this. Anything helps!

    Northern Spain Trip

    Itzurun Beach Interpretation Sign There was 1/2 mile of these exposed sedimentary layers along this beach with the K-T boundary pointed out along the cliff trail. Fossil gastropods at Arnica Beach in the soils above the sedimentary deposits. Echanoid Coral? Arrived at high tide. Beach the following morning at Low tide so could explore. Just amazing land forms sculpted by the sea!!! Playa da Pendueles Jurassic Museum of Asturias
  15. Some small finds + some rocks I thought would be nice in the garden What do I have here??
  16. I went to visit the "fossillium" show this Weekend near Lille Northern France,a lot of Minerals ,few fossils :( ,crazy prices ,but a Northern France real chamane!
  17. Howdy fellow fossilers. I moved to Corpus 3 months ago with my wife and I've always loved hunting fossils across the US. Let me tell you, I can tell this is a great spot. I've seen Steve71's posts on mammoth teeth and Pleistocene bones, bison, mastodon, tapir, horse teeth etc. I'd really love to find some of those things and if anyone knows any pointers for stuff nearby (not by san antonio) I'd be forever in your gratitude. In the meantime, here are some photos of fossils I found roaming the beach at Port Aransas.

    The Creekend Warrior Collection

    Been at it for about a year now and I try to hit the creeks at least twice/month if I can help it. The "loose" pics are either newer finds that haven't made their way into the display yet, or finds that have their own display. Most of these were rescued from the Gainesville area. Some are from the Peace River & Joshua Creek, as well as Manasota, Caspersen, Venice & Fort Clinch beaches. I was also lucky enough to discover a previously unknown spot VERY close to home, while scouting one day! Dr. Hulbert (w/ UF) confirmed it is a new spot, but was reluctant to c
  21. Hello all, This weekend another fossil hunt in Cretaceous sediments in the Netherlands (late late Campanian, early Maastrichtian, around 72-66 mya (whole late Maastrichtian) and/or (more specific) 70.8-67/70.8-68 mya). The wetter was good, a bit warm and even sometimes humid. Found some typical Cretaceous fossils. Mainly Belemnites from the species Belemnitella sp. and Belemnella (pachybelemnella) sp. Perhaps some B. (pachybelemnella) obtusa (Schulz, 1979) and one fragment of a sea urchin (Echinocorys sp.). Compared to American sites (for example New Jersey), a re

    Fossilized Tooth?

    Can anyone identify this? It was found on a dirt road in SE Georgia near the coast. Dredgings from the shipping channel are used to fortify dirt roads. I know it's difficult to do using pictures alone so I'll include as many clear shots as possible.
