  1. Hello to everybody! I'm kinda new here, but before I start I must say I really love this forum! It has really great vibes and you instantly can tell that this is a good and friendly community! So, I am ziggycardon, I live in Belgium, close to the border of the Netherlands and when we start speaking geologically, I live on the same cretaceous sediments as where the first major Mosasaurus discoveries where done! Unfortunatly I have never been on a fossil hunt myself and everything currently in my collection was bought or given to me. But I hope to change that soon, as I am dyi
  2. In the Blue Hill Shale Member of the Carlile Shale formation, you can sometimes find concretions that have very colorfully preserved ammonites. The concretions are usually about the size of a golf ball to baseball. They are smacked with a hammer to see if there is something inside, as many are empty. The concretions are extremely hard, but there is usually a weak spot between the ammonite and the super hard limestone. I recently picked up a CP air scribe, so I thought I'd try it out on a "mud ball" that had a little of a Scaphites carlilensis exposed. The outside of the concretion that is
  3. A few highlights from fossil hunting in the Amberg-Sulzbach county (Bavaria, Germany) in June 2022. There's small abandoned limestone quarries all over the place, picked a couple random ones and found these guys and dozens of more fragmentary bits.
  4. We went camping last weekend out at Delintment Lake in eastern Oregon. We went to check out the ammonite fossils. It was a great place! Kids loved it. Here are some of our finds. Interesting area because you could dig in one area and it was really loose compacted clay and in another area less than a mile away it was hard slate type material that really needed some work to get it to split. Naturally the slate material had the more robust ammonites.
  5. I was able to get out for the first mountain hike this season recently after being held back due to storms. The weather had been too hot the last several weeks to get out in the mountains due to afternoon thunderstorms building up making it hazardous for hiking and to leave an aircraft exposed at 5,000’ elevation. Most of the large pictured ammonites are Pachydiscus sp. so here we go, a photo trip in the Matanuska Formation, Member 3. Yes, it is as steep as it looks. Not for the faint of heart. This particular ammonite has been exposed for three seasons now and to
  6. Took me awhile to edit this video. My son Cory took waaaaaay too much video of these so I did lots and lots of editing but still had lots of fun putting this one together. Enjoy https://youtu.be/ZLA-1JMkWo8
  7. I’m planning my return trip to Lake Texoma and I was wondering if y’all had any suggestions for tools to bring. Preferably batter-powered (no generator) and powerful enough to excavate large ammonites from hard limestone. Explosives, battery acid, and hydrochloric acid are out of the question. I’d settle for gas-powered tools, but only as a last resort.
  8. Last weekend I made a trip to New Mexico to hunt the Rio Puerco Valley with @PFOOLEY in search of Upper Cretaceous ammonites, mostly in the middle Turonian Carlile Shale. Mike is incredibly knowledgeable about the Upper Cretaceous of New Mexico and the stratigraphy of the area and I had a blast collecting alongside him. Before making my way to New Mexico I had told Mike that my goal was to find a Placenticeras. Placenticeras and Sphenodiscus are my two favorite Upper Cretaceous ammonite genera. Despite Mike's warning that the areas we would look had been consistently collected over the years,
  9. These are some finds of mine made on the Yorkshire coastline... It would be truly spectacular to have very specific identifications for all of them - and even the ones that 'just' turn out to be regular stones and rocks! Regarding most, I think they're quite fragmentary... Key: 1-9 = Everything up to the first Ammonite 10-18 = Ammonite material? 19-26 = Alternative shells 27-29 = 'Olympus Mons'/multilayered rocks 30-35 = Other

    Ammonite pieces

    From the album: NSR - May 27, 2022

  11. The Rio Puerco Valley was my introduction to fossils. For many years now, I have scoured its Late Cretaceous shales and sandstones in search of ammonites. Somewhere along the way, my fascination with the ornament grew into an investigation of its enviornment. Last week at the New Mexico Geologic Society's Spring meeting (program), I made my first venture into the world of paleontological science. With the help of Dr. Spencer Lucas of the New Mexico Museum of Natural History, I presented a poster/abstract (Foley & Lucas 2017.pdf) exhibiting my ideas. I r
  12. I did this prep some years ago, about 10?, and it came out purty dang good. Video is 1 minute 51 seconds https://youtu.be/IkR2SccEdrQ
  13. For whatever reason, I used to completely dismiss the Austin chalk as a formation of any interest. I viewed it almost through the same lens that I view the Edwards formation, as if it was some barren uninteresting hinderance that gets in the way of cooler formations. Accidentally finding a large Parapuzosia ammonite in it once changed that a bit, but for the most part I still ignored it... Turns out I was just looking in the wrong places, and had very little understanding of its members. @LSCHNELLE recently explained a lot of it better to me, and so equipped with new knowledge I de

    The Rio Puerco Valley

    The Rio Puerco Valley was my introduction to fossils...it immediately caught my attention...lit a match...became a place I am always eager to revisit...search...learn about... ...and in roaming it, have learned about myself. Many of my adventures in the Puerco are posted here, here...here and here...and here. From here on out, my excursions will be shared here. May you find happiness in your hunting. -P.
  15. Best of my ammonites 2.0 reloaded. I decided to redo “ best of my ammonite” thread because my old thread is a little outdated. I have given so many of my ammonites away to friends that it seamed strange been called my collection . Also I have found some new , older finds and gifted ammonites that I have never shown before so it should be entertaining. I hope you don’t mind seeing a few duplicates in the next weeks post. I will post 3 specimens now and a couple of more every week. My dyslexia is very time consuming so this thread will keep me busy to Christmas and beyond.
  16. Hello all. After a long break, I would like to show some examples of the Sinemurian Jurassic from my collection. The Sinemurian Stage (Sinemur) is a stratigraphic subsection, the second from the bottom stage of the lower section of the Jurassic system of the Mesozoic era. Covers time from 199.3 ± 0.3 Ma to 190.8 ± 1.0 Ma. As far as I know, these fossils are not very widespread. Arietites (Coroniceras)?.. I am not sure about these ammonites
  17. Hello all... I want to invite everyone here to the second in this year's Tate Museum Spring Lecture Series. Next Thursday, March 31, the Tate Geological Museum will be doing the second in the year's Spring Lecture series via Zoom. Dr. Josh Slattery, from the University of South Florida, will speak on ecology of Cretaceous ammonites found in our part of the country: "The Ecological Role of Ammonites in Late Cretaceous Seas of North America" The presentation starts at 7PM, Mountain Time. We will open the zoom at 6:30 for anyone who wants to socialize (or jus
  18. Long time no see guys! Thought I’d come back with a bang. A few months back I headed out, just after recovering from covid, so of course, not back at 100%, but well enough to get some exercise. Of course, the first thing I stumble on, is a rather large nodule. Now, these nodules don’t normally contain anything, and are usually filled with a calcite core, but always fun to hit regardless. After one tap with the hammer, it revealed a cross section of a rather large ammonite known as Harpoceras (falciferum). Not a super rare Ammonite by any means, but definitely uncommon. I lost my head. Th

    Unidentified England Ammonites

    Anybody know what these are?
  20. I’ll start off my collection with the most common ammonite you can find on the Yorkshire coastline in England. Dactylioceras Commune Lower Jurassic, Upper Lias. Roughly 180myo You can find these ammonites in abundance in Whitby. No exaggerations when I say iv seen thousands over the years. You can find them in plenty of other locations all over Europe, though they’re most known as the Whitby Dac. Now, while they maybe common, size comes into play with mine. You’re usual dac, will probably be between 2-3 inches. If you’re lucky, you can get a 4 inch one, though
  21. Warm day, not muddy now, the Clay was cracked into convenient units for searching. There usually are some pyratised Ammonites, but the preservation of these is beautiful and odd. It might be to do with the amount of rain we've had acting with pyrite - I don't know. I really like the colours and the attached white Serpula worm.

    Texas Fossils!!!

    Recent finds from Texas! Ammonites from the Goodland limestone, petrified wood and ice age stuff bank gravel of the Brazos river, either Beaumont or Lissie formations, or from a terrace deposit. The rib is mammoth/mastodon, the vertebra and hoof core bison, the antler is likely whitetail deer, and the teeth are horse and bison, with the small one I think a 3-toed horse based on the images I looked up.

    Jurassic Coast fossil collecting

    Hello! I'm planning a trip to the UK and would like to be able to collect in the Lyme Regis/Charmouth areas. I don't know much about the area other than what I've read. Any and all information, suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks
