  1. Predation Marks on Hebertella?

    Hi guys so I have this Hebertella occidentalis specimen I collected yesterday from the Credit River at Streetsville, Mississauga, Ontario, which belongs to the Upper Member of the Georgian Bay Formation. Do these look like predation marks? There are also what appears to some crystallized grains inside these marks and I think they could be some sort of calcite. Sorry for the noisy grain of the image, but I hope this will help.
  2. Mystery fossil with two members

    Found this guy under the Lakeshore Bridge in Long Branch, Ontario. It's about 4cm long. Any ideas what it might be?
  3. Help to ID fossil from niagara region

    Can anyone help me identify this fossil? I’m trying to figure out if it’s worth salvaging or if I can dissolve it in acid to remove the sphalerite. This was inside a dolostone boulder in Niagara, it looked like a rock within the rock so I chipped it out carefully as I could.
  4. Yesterday the weather in my area hit above the 20 degrees Celsius so I dared myself to go to Streetsville in Mississauga to visit a fossil site I have not been to in 2 years. I now live in Hamilton, Ontario so travelling to Streetsville was intimidating for me using public transit from Hamilton to Streetsville. I have not been to Streetsville by the Credit River ever since I moved from Etobicoke to Hamilton, Ontario and I miss collecting in this vicinity. But I made it. :)) I took pics of exposure sites as these sites are mentioned in one of the literatures describing the Georgian Bay formation. This site exposes the Georgian Bay formation, Upper Member.
  5. Hello everyone! Viola and I spent about 2.5 hours in Hungry Hollow's South Pit (mid-Devonian in age) yesterday afternoon. The weather was actually the most pleasant it has ever been for us at this location, but it was so mucky from recent heavy rains that we couldn't explore the whole pit for fear of getting stuck. We did, however, come away with some nice finds. Most notably, it was my best day for finding the small pyritized goniatite Tornoceras - I collected 9, which is more than the sum total of what I've found in all of my visits prior to yesterday!!! I hope you enjoy the pictures Monica Two photos of the pit: Two photos of Viola collecting/playing in the mud: More to follow...
  6. It's been about five months since I've been able to get out and dig, so when my collecting comrade and I arranged it, off we went. The weather was perfect, although it was muddy going. Spent about a day and a half at our site. Finds were not the best for some species, but the focus was more on site preparation. Pictured here are some Greenops widderensis. Both are missing parts, so will likely be in the grafting pile:
  7. Hello guys. I’ve got 2 Late Ordovician reef fossils from Streetsville, Mississauga, Ontario, Canada that I’d like to trade away to make room now that the fossil hunting season is coming back soon. I am trading away the specimens below. These are very nice specimens and comes from an exposure out of access to the ordinary public. Both belong to the Upper Member of the Georgian Bay Formation. Favistina calicina: Stromatocerium huronense:
  8. Sam Lawrence Park, Hamilton, Ontario

    I was looking back at my pictures I took in the summer and I realized I forgot to share pics of a park I discovered up on Hamilton’s Mountain with nice exposures of rock formations of the Niagara Escarpment. The park is called the Sam Lawrence Park at Concession Street which is just south of Hamilton’s downtown core. The park has a walk where one can see a nice view of the downtown Hamilton skyline. This walk at Arkledun Avenue is a popular photography destination and quite breath-taking on a good day.
  9. Canadian hashplate

    Last spring I was given a box full of Canadian goodness from our very own ,Kane. He came down for a TFF group hunt at Deep Springs. There were many nice specimens in the box, but my favorite is this hashplate. I believe this is from Hungry Hollow, Arkona Ontario. It appears to have Coral, bryzoans, crinoid, and brachs and possibly other goodies. I am going to try to take some close-ups in a few minutes and would appreciate any feedback as to what you see that maybe my eyes don't
  10. Hi all! While I was looking through some of my fossils, I came across the specimen below, and I think it's a new little coral for me! Does anyone have an idea as to its identity? It appears to be a tabulate coral, but if anyone could let me know its genus and species then I'd be much obliged! It's from Hungry Hollow near Arkona, Ontario, Canada (mid-Devonian in age). Thanks in advance for your help! Monica
  11. possible Ontario river fossils?

    Can anyone identify the possible location where these might have been picked up? These are some of the last remaining unidentified and un-located items that I acquired from the old rockhound couple in Nanaimo, that caused me to come to TFF for ID help in the first place. I'm only getting around to it now. These aren't the most spectacular or important fossils, but it's always worth it if you can attach some info to them. Otherwise I'll eventually toss them out for garden rockery, probably. I thought I saw some similar items that someone had posted not too long ago, from a river in Ontario, in a town that started with P - Pickering? But I never followed up on it and I can't find that topic now. I suspect these are all from the same area, whatever area that is. They're all Paleozoic marine, and all but #3 are water-worn. First: This first piece I have already posted but I never got any confident answers about it. Maybe combined with the others I'll get further with it.
  12. Fossil id also new here.

    Hey everybody new to this whole fossil hunting thing. A few weeks ago my partner and I were fossil hunting in courtier and found a few interesting fossils but there is one type of fossil that I cannot seem to identify. I was hoping someone could possibly tell me what they might be. It would be greatly appreciated.
  13. Honeycomb tube-like structures?

    Keep finding examples of these honeycomb/tubular structures, what could they be?
  14. Is this a type of coral?

    Something I've found around Clear Creek while hiking. Any ideas as to what this might be? Obviously some sort of shell, but from when?
  15. Another fossil ID from Ontario

    One of my most recent finds, nothing I can recognize, is it some sort of plant?
  16. Fossils found in southern Ontario

    A selection of one of the fossils I've found in and around Clear Creek while hiking. Any ideas as to what this might be?
  17. I am looking for information on what kind of fossil this may be. It is in a limestone block wall in Ontario, Canada. There is evidence of crystallization in most of the fossils and crevices. This example is almost a foot long, 4 inches in height. There are brachiopods in many of the blocks as well, and a number of fossils similar to this example.
  18. Strange rock

    I found this rock in Southern Ontario buried in the dirt in my front yard. I kept it because it thought it had a neat design and now I am wondering whether it is a fossil and what type. The size is 3 cm tall with a 3 cm diameter.
  19. Triarthrus eatoni

    Found associated with T. rougensis, T. spinosus, brachiopods, cephalopods, and graptolites. Included in multi plate alongside eight other complete or near complete T. eatoni.
  20. Triarthrus eatoni

    Included in multi plate alongside eight other complete or near complete T. eatoni. Found in association with T. rougensis, T. spinosus, Brachiopods, Cephalopods, and Graptolites. The Cephalon is slightly disarticulated, likely from molting.
  21. Triarthrus eatoni

    Found associated with T. rougensis, T. spinosus, brachiopods, cephalopods, and graptolites. Included in multi plate alongside three other T. eatoni and one T. rougensis. Both eyes are preserved.
  22. Ottawa Marine Fossils

    Hey folks! It took some time but I've finally gotten around to uploading some pictures from my recent fossil ""hunt"! The quotations are there because the directions I left for myself from a prior trip included such extremely helpful tips as "left at the spooky demon tree". Turns out when you're a chicken a lot of trees look like spooky demons >.> It was definitely more of a sad confused wander than a full on hunt...but I digress. While I wasn't able to find the exact spot from before, I found an area with similar geological features, and after digging up about half a foot of loam around a small outcropping was rewarded with numerous individual rocks with all sorts of...things...all over them. I grabbed one giant 40lb chunk and a smaller one to play with and poke at to practice techniques. The smaller piece is on the bottom. Both samples were taken within feet of each other in a public forest just outside Ottawa, Ontario. The smaller piece I put in a bowl of water and gave a good scrub down with a toothbrush (brings me back to my field school days >.>) The surface and reverse of both are shown and I can provide more detailed pictures if necessary! I thought the crystallized shell things were pretty cool, there were quite a few more out there, but I'm completely unsure of what I'm looking at or if there was a way to extract them safely. I'm most curious as to what the circular things that litter the rocks are, but there seems to be a variety of other shells and tubey wormy things in there as well. Is there some sort of resource or database I could refer to for fossils from this particular time period/area? I'd feel bad constantly asking 'whats that!?" Anything neat here worth poking at with some of my archaeological pokers or have I found myself some very interesting garden rocks!
  23. I was reading a book about fossil fishes and there was a chapter dedicated to sharks and their cousins. Apparently there were chondricthyan scales found in the Late Ordovician and Early Silurian rocks. Since I hunt the Late Ordovician Georgian Bay formation in Toronto, Ontario and various Early Silurian formations in Hamilton, Ontario, what are the chances of me coming across these scales? Should I keep my eyes open and what should I look for?
  24. Triarthrus rougensis

    Both genal spines are present. Right side of cephalon is slightly pyritized. Found associated with T. spinosus, T. eatoni, cephalopods, and graptolites.
  25. Triarthrus spinosus

    Ventrally preserved. Both genal spines and one thoracic spine are present. Hyostome slightly visible. Found associated with T. eatoni, T. rougensis, cephalopods and graptolites.
