  1. Complete Treptoceras crebiseptum

    From the album Urban Fossils of Toronto (Georgian Bay Formation, Lower Member)

    Complete specimen of a late Ordovician cephalopod Treptoceras crebiseptum, even with the living chamber intact. The length is appr. 37 cm. From the Mimico creek, Georgian Bay formation, Ontario. Specimen found in shale and my first complete one!! I usually find small fragments of the phragmocone at Mimico creek. Also keep in mind specimens found in shale are preserved squashed, compared to the ones preserved in limestone they are preserved in their original shape.

  2. Well, since moving to Ottawa, I haven't had the chance to go out fossil hunting. There wasn't a whole lot of info on the web about the geology here. So my wife and I decided to buckle up and find a spot ourselves (without any hammers or chisels). We tend to be very lucky people, but I was surprised by the THOUSANDS of trilobites we came across in a matter of 20 minutes. We were on the shoreline of the Ottawa river, we found a certain type of shale that was just crawling with them. If any lucky soul goes to the spot where we left all the remnants of our hunt, they will sure be having a good day. I'm especially excited that I was able to find trilos. Coming from Kansas, we don't really have them (although I've found a few). I'm excited to traverse the Canadian wilderness collecting fossils and upsetting my wife with all of the rocks I bring home. None of the bugs we found were complete, although we did our darnedest to find some. But here are a few pictures of our trip! (This is an extremely small fraction of what we found) What a beautiful time immersing ourselves inthe beauty of mother earth. Cheers!

  3. Triarthrus?

    Hi TFF! I have just found a very interesting fossil near my home which I suspect might be the articulated left and right pleura of a Triarthrus. I have already found other fragments of Triarthrus in the same rock outcrop. (Glabellas, pleura, cephalons, etc.) It may also be a graptolite or something similar.
  4. Orthocone or Hyolithid?

    Another fossil for ID! This time, I think that I have some possible orthocone nautiloids from the Billings Shale. I found these near a small construction site near my house. Although I suspect them to be cephalopods, they may also be Hylothids. Or, they could be something else entirely! I am not an expert on these faunas at the moment, so I may be wrong. Each photo is of a different specimen. Thanks in advance! More posts about the regional science fair are to follow.
  5. Lambton Hunt

    After a brief morning hunt yesterday near my house, today was a whole day effort in Lambton County. Part of my purpose was to fill buckets with typical fossils to give to my US collecting comrades, but also as it would be Deb's season opener. A lot was found, but like I said, those buckets are surprises for some members I will be seeing next weekend. Of the stuff I am keeping, 3 pieces stick out... This Greenops is full, and just a bit buried. I found it within the first five minutes at the site, or about second or third rock I split. It was found wet so I slow-dried it and wrapped it carefully for the drive home. It survived, but will need to be stabilized as there are dangerous cracks running through this rock (not through the bug, though - phew!).
  6. I found this Fossil Over a Decade ago

    I found this in the mid-2000's but never really had it checked out, I'm having a paleontologist look at it soon, but I wanted to get your guys opinions. I can only post 1 photo because there is a size limit.
  7. Well here it is April 15th 2018 and I was supposed to go collecting Yesterday and today.... Well didn't happen .... Here is a picture of my backyard this morning.... Welcome to spring in the Great White North.. There is a pool under there somewhere that traditionally gets opened in another month.....
  8. Devonian bivalve (scallop?)

    Found in Arkona Ontario a couple weeks ago Devonian age Widder formation 38mm/1.5" across
  9. 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.
  10. 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
  11. 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)
  12. I'm wondering if I am allowed to bring fossils I find in Ontario away to overseas locations. Any idea? Replies are appreciated.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.

  18. 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!

  19. 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.
