  2. Fossils?! Please help identify

    The files I have are too large, I’m hoping to be able to post more pictures in the thread. These items were found on the Jurassic coast in the uk. The item in this image is smooth and solid, albeit there are parts of it broken off, it was whole when we found it.
  3. Hi guys! thoughts on this amphibian?? Real? It’s a Czech fossil from the lower Permian. Any thoughts welcome and thanks nick
  4. Hey y’all! Hubby and I have to go to NM this weekend to pick up our son, we’re looking to do a little hounding again. I’ll be researching on places to go in the Alamogordo area. I’m not looking for yalls special sites or anything, just maybe a little advice or idea of an area to look into going. I guess I should read up on the collecting laws there too huh
  5. Fossil sites around CT

    Hi everyone, I am new to this form and would like to know if there are any fossil sites in the general area around Connecticut. I myself live around Danbury CT and am not sure what places I could visit that are at most 4 hours of driving away from here. I have read about sites in PA like St.Clair and Carbondale but I believe both are closed now. Red Hill is also around that area but I don't know how I would get permission to go there. Also I don't really have a preference on type of fossil plants, fish, invertebrates, everything is welcome. Thank you
  6. Fossilized egg

    Can someone please tell me if this is an actual fossilized egg / it’s hollow - and if so, where would I sell it or get it authenticated?
  7. Hey team! What are your thoughts on this piece? Real? Permian branchiosaur from Germany. Thanks for any input
  8. Label help

    Hi all. I really like to have everything to be labeled, but I have collected from locations that have multiple formations and ages. How would you go about labeling when there is 2-4 potential formations or ages? Thanks in advance
  9. possible dig site

    i have 11 acres of farmland, and i found a ravine behind my barn. at the mouth of the ravine is either a hog holler, or animal holler, or a hole leading down into a cavern, idk yet. i am clearing it off this weekend carefully, and weedhacking it, and raking it. i would like to open this area up as a dig site, and i need assistance in how to properly achieve this. i would just start digging but i am afraid i will damage some fossil or something if i do not do it properly. there are 5 lakes within a thousand yards of the ravine, but they are either on a golf course, landlocked, or inaccessible private land/pine farm. i am seeking to dig in my area, and if anything is found, it would be proof more exists back here. this house is the top of the hill in all directions, and the ravine is the last land dip before the next property starts. if anyone is interested in contacting me, [send a PM] serious inquiries only please, i will respond with google earth images of the land, and dig site area circled. while the trees are still there, the google earth image does not reflect the last years land clearing my tractor and goats have achieved. if you are interested, please feel free to come survey the property with me and discuss the best ways to begin the process.

    My students and I found this fossil in our garden but can't identify it. Can anyone help us based on the picture? Thank you so much! We think it's some sort of jawbone
  14. Unusual fossil

    I found this fossil over a month ago. It appears to be a cluster of fossilized eggs? Or creatures?... I have had no luck even coming close to figuring out what this is. I found this in an area loaded with crinoids. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  15. found this in a stream in Bowling Green, Kentucky along with plenty of plant fossils that were in clay like rocks
  16. My friend found this in a creek bottom here in central Iowa. He thinks it might be a petrified pearl inside a half oyester. Any thoughts? Maybe the muscle?
  17. Hi guys, I was wondering if any of you could help me ID this fossil. I have done some research into it and know it is from some sort of primate, The seller doesn't know much about it except that he found it at a curio shop on the Texas Oklahoma border in the early 1960's. Any help would be much appreciated. I have listed some pictures below to help with the process. Thanks, Ryan

  21. Fossil hunting on the east coast?

    I've been wondering if there's any good fossil hunting to do from Brevard county down to Palm Beach and the counties in-between. I haven't really found much about hunting in this area so far (Aside from Ruck's Pit). Places like Gainesville and the Peace River aren't easily accessible to me on a regular basis so I'm limited in my hunting. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
  22. Denver Colorado Fossils

    Hello everyone, I will be in Denver in early October, and I was hoping to spend at least one day fossil hunting. Is there anyone here who would be willing to give me some tips. This is my first trip west of the Mississippi River and I probably will not be back for years, or possibly ever, so I obviously won't pick any sites clean. I am a vertebrate guy, so that is what I am hoping to concentrate on. Any help or tips on where to go and what sorts of fossils I can find would be tremendously helpful!
  23. Hi guys! Is this legit? It looks epic... maybe too epic to be real?! Any advice would be much appreciated from a newb fossil enthusiast. Cheers
  24. Against better judgement, I acquired a "keishosaurus" fossil. I trust the dealer - but not necessarily their source. I'm attaching some photos - please let me know your opinion - do you think it's a real one, "restored/painted", or a complete/near complete fake. The chip in the left forearm looks concerning to me. Any insight is appreciated.
