  1. Devonian bivalve (scallop?)

    Found in Arkona Ontario a couple weeks ago Devonian age Widder formation 38mm/1.5" across
  2. A Ridiculous Find

    A friend of mine last weekend was digging near an old creek bed on his farm property in Southern Ontario and came across a "Weird rock" as he described to me that I should check out, when I got to his house and he presented the approx. 10lbs "weird rock" my jaw hit the floor, this weird rock was 100% a tooth from something that lived a looong time ago. It was the coolest thing I'd ever seen before, so after an hour of googling we realized by the cusped shapes on the tooth this was a mastodon tooth....in his back yard practically. We are planning on going back to dig this weekend, so my question is a shallow one I'm sure to the people of this forum, He has expressed an interest in possibly selling what we find. If anyone has any insight as to the legality of moving fossils of this size, and perhaps if anyone knows where we could find buyers it would be greatly appreciated. I have read other topics on this forum that relate sort of to this one but on a much smaller scale. I understand how this may sound but I want to make it clear he's not interested in just adding to his bankroll, in a way he thinks maybe this could save his farm if he was to make something from it. It's not a matter of greed but a matter of getting by for him. Thanks in advance for any help, in the next couple days I am going back to his place and if he lets me I will snag a pic for you.
  3. Devonian? Xenacanthus tooth

    First off, I apologize for the poor image quality... The pictures were taken quickly with my phone camera through a microscope. If anyone is interested I'll get out a proper camera later and try again. I found this while searching some Widder formation matrix collected in Arkona ontario. It is roughly 1 mm across. I am fairly certain the tooth belonged to a Xenacanth. Has anyone found these in the area before or did it migrate from somewhere else? Note: the tooth is smooth. The serrated look is caused by pixels in #2
  4. Over the weekend on Saturday, The boys in our family went out to Grand River Waterloo for fossil hunting. Although I do not have pictures of us hunting the fossils. Here are some fossils we found. Google Drive Link to my fossils I feel that the names can explain a lot about the rocks (Appreciate any help naming them). I kept the green and black ones since they looked cool (Shiny). For fossil hunting, we looked for the layered rock and crossed our fingers hoping for the best (Anywhere I can find out more strategies and techniques). That was how my dad found the fan fossil. The funny thing about the Sun fossil (gonna keep calling it the "Sun Fossil" until I find out the correct naming) was that I found it right next to the place I laid down my water bottle. Was it planted there or is that normal?? I was going to upload my fossils to the site but I could only put up one and it was too much work. Can someone explain to me how to add more than one picture in your post Thanks Nathan (man these emojis are nice) (I should be studying) (I did my homework though @Monica)
  5. I'm wondering if I am allowed to bring fossils I find in Ontario away to overseas locations. Any idea? Replies are appreciated.
  6. My package arrived

    I try to find my own rather than buy fossils but I had to have this one..... An enrolled Flexicalymene from a local quarry in Ontario that was too nice to pass up. Roughly 0.75" across.
  7. Dear TFF members, As some of you may already know, I have been working on my science fair project concerning the Trilobite Pseudogygites latimarginatus for several months. This science fair project has been awarded a position in the Ottawa Regional Science Fair held at Carleton University this week. Your help has been instrumental in my success, and my appreciation cannot be expressed in words. As one way of thanking you all, I am inviting anyone on the forum who will be in or near Ottawa at the time to attend the fair. My project will be open to the public this Friday, April 6th, from 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm, and again this Saturday, April 7th, from 9:00 am - 11:30 am. It is titled, "The Impact of Environment on the Biodiversity of Pseudogygites latimarginatus." My project's number is 1101. I will also have some of my most prized fossils on display, as well as some edible specimens, for the Trilobite enthusiasts! I am not asking for anyone to go out of their way to see my project, this is just a simple invitation. Everyone is welcome.

  10. Trilobite Science Fair

    Attention TFF members! I'm posting this to bring you an extremely important announcement! (For Me) For the past few months, I have been posting topics regarding Ottawa fossils and the Trilobite Pseudogygites latimarginatus. I have been doing this for research and information for my grade 8 science fair project. This experiment involved the relationship between Ordovician sedimentation and the average lengths of Pseudogygites latimarginatus. The title was, "The impact of Environment on the Biodiversity of Pseudogygites latimarginatus." Though, other possible titles included, "Another one Trilo-Bites the Dust," "Trilo-Bite Sized Science," "Don't Trilo-Bite the Hand that Feeds You," and "Trilo-Bite Me!" Last week, I fully assembled the presentation board and all other related displays. I presented my project to three judges (including professors and students from Carleton University) in addition to many other people who passed by. The following day, my school held an assembly which would announce the top 5 winners of the grade 8 science fair. After much delay and suspense on my part, it was announced that I had won first place in my grade! This means that I will get the opportunity to compete in the Ontario regional science fair this April! It turns out that one of the reasons why I won first place was because the teachers who were doing research on my project's nature (name pronunciation) stumbled upon my many posts on this website! I will continue to make posts on the forum. I think that I should give acknowledgement to all the TFF members who helped me achieve my goal, or contributed in any way! This includes all the people who helped identify my mystery fossils and gave fossil hunting advice and locations during these past few months. These are in no particular order. Thank you all!

  11. Another win, another specimen

    I made another score on eBay! This time I got the winning bid on a partial echinoderm plate from Simcoe County, Ontario from the Upper Bobcaygeon formation. One of the Pleurocystites has a partial Isorophusella incondita edrioasteroid on it which I'll try to take a picture soon. This is my second specimen I have ever obtained from this locality.

  17. Devonian trilobite pygidium

    Found in Arkona, Ontario Age: Devonian Size: about 18 mm/0.75 inches Any ideas?
  18. Before having to teach, I decided to take a small walk along the Thames River that runs through our campus. The river runs a course of about 170 miles, and was extremely high after very heavy rains and high temperatures that melted a great deal of snow. Since then, the river levels have receded significantly, leaving large stretches of sand and transported materials. I didn't plan on doing any collecting, but where there are rocks... So these are two snaps of the bank. The deposited material went on for some distance.
  19. Diplocraterion?

    Hi again! I have another unidentified fossil from the Billings. It is a brown or dark yellow coloured streak. I think it must be some type of ichnofossil. To me, it reminds me of some fossils of Diplocraterion. It could also just be a streak made from another mineral, such as calcite. It is preserved alongside one almost full-length crinoid stem impression and one 3 dimensionally preserved specimen of the aforementioned animal.
  20. A Sound of Thunder?

    Ok, let me explain this title. I was out for my second hunt in the Billings Formation yesterday and found this fossil. There have been many fossils that I could'nt exactly identify, but usually I have some inclination or hypothesis about its identity. This is not the case here. I am at a total and complete loss as to what this thing could possibly be. It is circular and ribbed. The first thing I thought when I saw this was "human fingerprint". I have put my own finger in the picture for scale. Looks like somebody stepped off the path in the Ordovician!
  21. A Spiral Of Confusion

    Another unidentified fossil from the Billings Shale Formation! This time, it's some kind of spiral shaped fossil. There are actually three in this one stone, and many more in other places, so they are fairly common. This fossil has a definite spiral shape, unlike the orthocone cross sections. Right now I think they are either some type of Gastropod, or a coiled ammonoid nautiloid cephalopod. Any ideas? I appreciate your help!
  22. Try-a-Bites!

    OK, I think I am kind of bending the rules on what constitutes paleo reconstuctions here. For the past few months I have been doing work and research for a Trilobite (Pseudogygites Lantimarginatus) themed science fair project for school. Now that it is February, the actual presentation of the project is approaching quickly. Since I enjoy baking and arts and crafts, and because I am a firm believer in the effectiveness of bribery, I wanted to incorporate something extra into my project. After hours of scouring the internet for all things Trilobite, I found a template for these Trilobite shaped cookies. After one night of hard work and over fourteen nights of doing nothing, the cookies are finally finished! Enjoy! (The pictures)
  23. I found the first two of these pictures in the river bed of Etobicoke creek, Toronto, Ontario, Canada, and the final picture is of one I found at the lakefront of marie curtis beach park. I have tried looking online and read they might be from ordivican? but I really have no idea! new to fossiling -- but definitely interested in learning more!
  24. Belemnites? Conodont?

    Greetings again TTF! The Billings formation is just filled with stuff that I can't identify! This time, I have found some glossy, cylinder-shaped things in the Billings Shale. I know that conodont elements are known from some parts Ontario and Quebec, but I think that it might be a belemnite as well. They seen to be associated with crinoid stems, brachiopods, and one Pseudogygites Lantimarginatus pygidium. They are each roughly one centimetre long. They are in the centre of the first picture and the second picture.
  25. U.T.F.! (Unidentified Trilobite Fixigena!)

    It's a UTF! I found this in an exposure of the Ordovician aged Billings Shale Formation. It's clear that it is a Trilobite fixigena, but I was wondering if a Trilobite genus can be identified from one alone? I have found three distinct forms of Trilobite in this formation: Pseudogygites pygidiums, Isotelus fragments, and Triarthrus head pieces. Any ideas? Thank you very much!
