  1. I have an upcoming trip around the Point A Dam in Alabama. Is this site still in good shape with the recent weather that's been cranking through the south? If the dam is out, are there any other good sites still in existence in 1-3 hours drive south of Andalusia? I've read about a lot of northern panhandle sites in Florida but wondered if they're still in existence or have been wrecked with Hurricane Michael. Also, I work mostly dry sites in the Paleozoic of West Virginia. Is this a site where muck boots are warranted? If so, are mid calf height enough or better to have waders that
  2. I found this hunting a creek in the Eutaw, Al area - Late Cretaceous. Could this be Enchodus or something else entirely?
  3. KT curious

    Petrified Wood I.D.

    This specimen was discovered by my grandfather over 30 years ago in the coal mines of north-western Alabama. This area sits on the black warrior sedimentary deposit and is well known as a hot spot for Pennsylvanian age plant fossils. ~18 inches in length .

  7. This was found on the banks of a river bed around Locust Fork River in Blount County Alabama

    Alabama Trackway

    Went back for the final piece today. After thinking about it all night I knew I wanted to add it to the collection. Thanks to @FossilsNS for his help. this is a another alabama coal mine fine but not the same as the ferns I posted. Beautiful trackway with all the little prints going across it. This is awesome since this was made by something that was alive 300 million years ago.

  10. Hello we are in Pensacola and our 15 year old son is an aspiring Paleontologist. He is dive certified and so are we and have a 18ft boat along with a 27 ft boat. We want to support him in his dream career choice (if he can support himself at some point LOL) and have no knowledge of how to get him experience in fossil hunting. He knows that chances are this part of his career path could be short lived and he will likely end up as a professor or museum curator but he doesn’t care. History and science are his favorite subject and as he says this is both wrapped up in one. As the country opens bac
  11. I love fossils and I love macro photography! If anyone is interested in having this photo to make a puzzle out of, let me know and I will send you a full res copy of it. This is part of a rock that I found in our backyard in Madison County, Alabama, just a couple of days ago. You could spend a lot of time studying it and finding a wide variety of fossils - mostly bryozoan - so I thought it might make a fun puzzle for these pandemic times. I'm not sure how this works, but I think there is a messaging option here where you could give me your email address so I could send the full resolution pho
  12. I dug this rock up in my back yard today in Madison County, Alabama. I was not surprised to find the typical fenestellate bryozoan fossils that I normally find, but I am puzzled by a couple of things. I will post a some photos to show the bryozoan fossils on the rock and then macro photographs of the parts I have questions about. The pod like structures remind me of some that I found on another rock from TN, but with encrusting bryozoan fossils... The other "thing" looks like some type of stem? Are these structures of the bryozoan colonies? I see one crinoid fossil on here, too, but that

    baby dino fossil?

    a friend of mine showed this to me and i thought it was fascinating we think it might be a type of flying dinosaur?
  14. This rock (fossil, I think?) was found in Franklin County, Alabama, near Lost Creek. I have studied it and worked on trying to identify it using the methods I have learned here. I can see where it has areas that have crystallized or silicized? There appear to be some parts that have sections to them, which leads me to wonder about coral, but it also has a bony appearance to it. Some of the edges almost look like a mussel or something like that, though... The underside is bumpy, but I am not seeing recognizable bryozoan fossils there? Maybe I just don't recognize them? I think it's a gorgeous

    bryozoa or brachiopod?

    This is an odd little rock that I found at my son's land in Franklin County today, near Lost Creek (Alabama). I am seeing what I think is an area of bryozoan fossils of some sort on it, but then I saw this tiny little shape that is encased inside of something else. I thought it was a brachiopod at first until I looked up closed with my trusty macro lens and saw teensy dots along the edges. Is this another type of bryozoa? And, if so, why is it encased inside of something? Thanks!! Ramona
  16. I hope, hope, hope that I don't wear out my welcome by asking questions about rocks with Fenestellan Bryozoan fossils in them! That's about all I got around here, but I do get other items IN those rocks that I don't recognize, like this one. Thanks so much to those guys who take the time to read and answer my questions - over and over again, LOL! This is yet another rock that I found in my yard and it is filled with what looks like layers of a variety of fenestellan bryozoan fossils? I have included a photo that shows what I am talking about, so please correct me if I am wrong! There

    Reptile skin? Coral? Calcite?

    I thought this was my typical fenestellan bryozoan fossil when I first started photographing this rock, but when I looked at the photograph I realized that the texture was more bumpy and different... Other areas of this rock have what look like quartzite like areas - could this be something like that? My first impression was that it looked like reptile skin, but then I thought more rationally and highly doubted it. ;-) Found in Madison County, Alabama. Ramona
  18. I found this fossil back in 2014 at Cedar Creek Reservoir in Franklin County, Alabama. I was told the fossils we'd find there would be Mississippian, contained in Bangor Limestone. When I first found this I thought it might be a trilobite butt or a shark tooth and I recently decided to try to clean it, and now I don't know what it is there are two depressions under each prong, and the prongs bow back up (couldn't really get a side pic) The pictures show the uncovered fossil (the lighter material was what was initially uncovered). Thank you for any assistance!
  19. I was recently reorganizing my fossil collection and thought I would share some pieces I collected during Paleontology field trips in undergrad at Alabama. I'm glad I took thorough notes at the time! The demopolis chalk is a popular formation for finding Exogyra/ostrea/pycnodonte shells and shark teeth. We visited a site in Tupelo, MS many times for surface collecting. Some of the cool pieces I found were many fragments of a mosasaur jaw (top pic, top 2 slots), a Squalicorax kaupi tooth, a scyliorhinus(?) tooth, bony fish vertebrae, and bony fish teeth. I was told the dark fossils

    strange little curved rock

    I think the curved part of this rock is probably just a coincidence, but since I have never seen anything like it before, I thought I would check. Like a lot of other rocks I find, it seems to have a layer of limestone fenestellan bryozoan fossils encrusted around it (that's about the only way I know to describe it) and lots of tiny impression fossils on the inside of the rock. Can anyone help me figure out the rock's story? What might have caused the curved and layered appearance? Is that just a coincidence? Or is this a particular "thing"? Found in Madison County, Alabama. I will post
