  1. Well In case you haven't noticed yet, I'm slowly moving north thru calif, fossil wise. Ive started with the LA area, probably becuase i lived there so long, and gradually am moving north. I have one more interesting fossil to share before leaving Califfornia. its from central calif, my limit of fossil collecting at that time was the southern half of calif I spent approx 32days digging DESMOSTYLUS, although not all at the same time, many trips, with no problems. And over 2 years preparing the material we collected. Back then ranchers were not concerned about some diggings by hand. BUT, w
  2. Looks like the forleg of an Oligocene CARNIVOROUS katydid Probably associated with that wing we had so much trouble IDing earlier
  3. Just before I left calif permently, I did another paleosalvage job in Orange County for the hiway dept. It was on a weekend, and in a low miocene roadcut, approx 20-30ft. About halfway up the cut I found a nice piece of pecten(scallop) shell in situ (in place), in some unindurated softish sandy material, and flairly easy to dig. This softer layer was sandwhiched between two thick, very solid and resistant layers of limestone?. As it was pretty easy diggin where the pectens were, I explored further, i started burrowing/digging, following some decent pectens into the hill along the bedding
  4. I traveled to china (hunan mining district) with a mining advisory group back in the '80s. I was with a group on how to improve mining techniques. As I am not a mining specialist, I just tagged along in a paleo capacity, and to be a tourist. Although we did tour many mines, including the famous antimony mine where those spectacular stibnite crystals are found 600ft underground. So deep it was uncomfortably warm. As it was a working mine,it was a look don't touch situation, but lots of massive antimony pockets, however i didn't see any of those lovely crystals that day. On this particular
  5. Would anyone care to share pics of their favorite cambrian fossil?
  6. About ten years ago, Argentina put a ban on exportation of the fabulous jurassic Araucaria pinecones. can anyone here show us their personal piece, they were lucky enough to acquire before the ban? Or. How bout ANY fossil pinecones? edit: in your collection.
  7. Way back when I was doing paleosalvage for the county, I ran across a thin 2 in, coarse sandy grey layer that had been exposed by a bulldozer, and leveled off for a housing pad, for a housing tract, . This thin layer was an obviously different color from the rest of the soil. So when I investigated, lo and behold it was chock full of Carcharodon sulcidens, a rather uncommon shark fossil in the area. Since I was digging for the county and on their property, I quickly salvaged what I could and moved on.I couldnt do much digging as the house pad was finished, It was after shut down time, and the
  8. A few years ago, I flew back to Missouri on business, and to visit. I had a heavy carry-on pkg of fossils/rocks to show. While there I had a free day, so my friends and I decided to do some sightseeing around town. My friends were not at all "fossil people", and when I told them that fossils were prevelant in their area they were astonished. As we drove around, just sightseeing, on the outskirts of the city, near a park, I noticed the foundations of a housing tract being built. and being the weekend there were no workers to annoy, and I still had a couple of hours of light left. I had a
  9. I'm having a bit of trouble getting out of calif with my posts,. but quite the interesting story; While I was monitoring the grading operations for a housing tract, the heavy equipment had leveled off a fairly large area ( approx 50 acres) as they were done for the day. This was Friday, so this large level spot lay exposed for the weekend. It rained that weekend creating a small lake on that leveled area. When i returned on monday, a small(about100x100 yards and six inches deep)lake had appeared. As I walked around the shore of this "lake" I noticed interesting foam accumulations all along t
  10. I lived in calif for a goodly part of my younger years, and therefore collected STH many years. then I moved a thousand miles away and raised a family. My youngest son(now 30) had grown up hearing stories of STH, and my STH collection itself, and so, was quite interested in the area. When he was old enough he couldnt wait to be out on his own. We don't spend a lot of time with each other lately On one return from Tucson ('05)we decided to stop by the locale for a few hours. Everything, luck wise, seemed to be lining up. The car coincidently turned over 200k right when we drove through Baker
