    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

    Ray tooth?

    Hello! Help please with identification. Height ~ 1 mm. Age - Middle Miocene. But there is a possibility that this tooth could be from Middle Eocene redeposits. I didnt fond such teeth before, but it resemble me some Rays tooth, but I can be wrong. Maybe someone found something similar... Location - Western Ukraine. Thanks in advance!
  6. So - I’ve spent the last 3 days hunting in the Peace, to a decent bit of success! But there’s story behind each day. So Friday I go, and maybe an hour before I was planning on leaving, my shovel breaks. Sucked, I left early. Get home, only to realize I left my sifter and probe at the ramp. Get up the next day, head back out, bringing with me my backup PVC sifter… my sifter and probe are gone. Spend the day hunting, come home, build a new sifter, and probe. Wake up today, head out to the river to try out the new sifter. Anyway! Onto the finds! Apologies in advance
  7. Hello, I just started my fossil collection and am thinking about adding some stuff to it. I found some stuff Im considering buying, but since I’m pretty new to fossils, I need some help to make sure the id are correct and that their the real deal before buying them. I would really appreciate it if someone helps confirm the ids of the fossils. Anyways that’s all I have to say for now, thanks for reading :). Btw I included why I’m skeptical(if I am, for each) item#1 is supposed trex rib, location on image, it measures about 1.65 inches, i only bought dinosaur teeth before, so I’m a
  8. Hi!!! I found these today on the beach I could use some help identifying. Please let me know your thoughts. There are three sets of teeth and I took pictures of both sides.
  9. Hi. I often go on here and look at the amazing dinosaur fossil collections many of you have. I live in Wisconsin so I don’t have the opportunity to search for them so I search online but I’m wondering if there are more places to find dinosaur fossils for sale than online sites. Im wondering if anyone has any input on this. If this is a question that goes against forum rules just let me know it can’t be answered here. I don’t want to break any rules. Thanks!

    Found in Ohio

    I found this rock years can’t remember exactly where in Ohio but I know it was in Ohio. I was wondering if anyone help me with what is in the rock I believe the rock is sandstone but there are several spots that have a bone or tooth like look to them. Any help would be appreciated hopefully these pictures are clear enough
  11. Anyone know much about locality 34? Not sure if anyone has made expeditions there or how one can access the area. Any input is greatly appreciated!
  12. I know I’ve been making a lot of these lately, so apologies for the trip spam. I’m having lots of time to go hunting, and while the water level remains low enough to hunt, I had to take advantage of it. There’ll be one more on Friday and then I’ll probably be done for August, lol. Anyway! This was another trip to find more spots to hunt, and I definitely came away pretty successful overall. Nothing too crazy, but given most of the day was spent looking for spots I’m not too mad. Now I can go right back to the spots on Friday. So to start off, Megs, as always: The nic
  13. So I’ve been doing a lot of fossil hunting lately, and as such, went back to the dry dig site yesterday, hoping to get at least one of my current 2 white whales: A complete Meg over 3”, or a rhino, dire wolf, smilodon, or Dugong tooth. Neither of these things happened, but I did walk away with some great stuff, so without further ado: Starting off with Megs as always: 7 complete Megs. The one in the centre I’m convinced is a Chub - it’s got cusps. Small ones, but they’re definitely there. Here are the better frags I found, including one almost complete, white
  14. Hi Im wondering if there is a reason hominid fossils dont come up for sale much. I think all ive seen for sale was a misidentified bone and a bit of jaw. Are they just not desirable? I can definitely see why some people wouldnt want them, so do sellers not get them just because theres no market. Or are they just extremely rare? Or other reasons, like most found end up being studied? I imagine even small, isolated bones would be of more scientific interest than an isolated dino bone. Cheers
  15. Hello everyone, I am going to be mainly in the Aurora area and possible Denver area during some part within the next month amd was wondering if there are any public sites locally and legally to find fossils. I don't mind if they are invertabrate sites as I do prefer those over vertabrate(however I don't mind vertebrate fossils either). All I have found online is the Florissant Fossil site and the normal tourist attractions where collecting isn't allowed/permitted. I don't overcollect and tend not to dig just to be on the safe side, both legally and for not damaging the landscape an
  16. FINALLY getting around to posting about my first time ever fossil hunting in Oklahoma! Went on an extended weekend with the Paleontological Society of Austin to a variety of locales in Central OK - places I have heard about, read about and dreamed about going! I finally made it! And it was so very worth the drive, even if I did end up with a stupid cold the last two days (the drive home was a little....weird. Cold "fugue" makes for interesting driving- I really don't remember much of it, which is either good or bad....) But the FOSSILS! I've never hunted the Ordovician and Siluria
  17. A couple of hours drive from me is an amazing spot to collect Eocene material. It's on the banks of the Brazos River (more properly, the Brazos del Dio River-The Arms of God river! My parents wrote a book on it: Exploring the Brazos: From Beginning to End). I've been to the site a few times, and always find an amazing amount of lovely little shells and such. I had the greatest luck this time though, finding a large shark tooth! I wasn't even aware that you could find shark teeth out there. I had found a cuttlefish prong there on a previous trip which is still one of my all time favorite finds
  18. So today was a day. Came out to the spot from Thursday, using my inflatable kayak, and spent from 8am to 3:30pm digging. And it was a veryyyyy worthwhile hunt. So to start off, Megs. I actually found some! They’re all sub 2”, in fact one of them has a slant height of 0.5”, and it’s NOT a posterior Meg. I didn’t even realize they could be that small. And yes, one of them is completely enamel-worn, which is neat, and the one to the right of that has a pathological root! I also found 65 - yes, 65 - fragolodons, though I’m only including the nicer pieces here:

  21. I finally found the blaster I have been looking for; a used Comco MB-1002 in decent shape. It also came with a blast box work station, but I dont have a use for it right this moment. I have to order a maintenance kit for some worn parts, but its functional. It goes through media WAY faster than my Vaniman, but it works so nicely. I dont know what size the tank valves are, and may need to order new ones as I suspect they could be too large for my media (and the reason its eating through it so fast). Now that I have my custom blast box, microscope, dust vac, and now this Comco, I ho
