  1. Day Two ; Locality Two (or Seven if you include Day One) Prepping and Retail, Erfoud, Morocco. 20th February 2019 Erfoud town itself is famous for its beautiful fossils, its skilled fossil preppers and also for its wide variety of fakes, composites, good and bad repair jobs and utter frankenfossils. A large percentage of fossils from Morocco that are available in shops and on the internet the world over originate from here or pass through the place. Fossils are sent here for prepping from all over the south and then sent from here everywhere in the country and abro
  2. 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
  3. Hi all, got some ammonites here that I desperately need help identifying! They are all from Folkestone, Kent from the Gault Clay of the lower cretaceous. There are also a few gastropods that I can't ID either. Thanks in advance for your help!
  4. Here’s the last item…(also threw in a the last photo of a good ammonite remnant, this one had great ridges) …this curve looks like ammonite but doesn’t have the ridges the others in the area all seem to have..stumped. I’m leaning toward ammonite…. thanks patrick
  5. Hey everyone! My trusty pup and I are heading to Texas and Louisiana for business and I am hoping to spend about a week in the north Texas area in search of a few good specimens for my collection! As many species, as high a quality as I can find! I’ve been researching extensively, and have what I think is a solid game plan, but since I have never been in the area for fossils I will happily take any advice and if anyone would like to join me, you can blindfold me, swear me to secrecy and sign an NDA if it means I find a few goodies. These will never leave my collection! I am hoping to
  6. Part two…looks like stems …Maybe, palm, cycad or fern? I guess another possibility is bone.. ?
  7. Have a good air scribe?little time ?, I have 5 kg of complete ammonites to offer for prep this winter,Callovian of Montreuil Bellay Maine-et-Loire France the cost of the 5kg Prepaid box for the world is 45 euros(except Russia and north Correa ),13euros 50 for France,i can send two boxes,i would like in return all kind of good fossils i still not already have ,Plants Ammonites(prep of course )brachiopds
  8. Here are some of my finds from spending a few hours on Wednesday, October 26th, in the Graysonites wacoense Zone of the Grayson Formation, Washita Group of north Texas (Early Cenomanian, ~97mya). This particular site exposes a micromorph layer full of thousands of tiny dwarfed Mariella bosquensis and M. rhacioformis ammonites plus a wealth of other taxa like various urchins, brittlestar fragments, shark teeth, many gastropods & pelecypods, etc. Those familiar with the Del Rio exposures of further south in central Texas (particularly the now closed-to-public Waco Pit in McLennan County), sh

    ammonites.fr shuts down

    One of the really best websites about cretaceous and jurassic ammonites has been removed from the net, www.ammonites.fr This was always an inspiration to compare own finds and determine them. I do not really know why, have heard some stories but did not talk to Herve Chatelier, the owner And, when you look with the waybackmachine it is not possible to open former versions... I will miss the website
  10. 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.
  11. On Wednesday, October 12th, I took another trip to a nearby favorite spot of mine that I found a few years ago which exposes the Sciponoceras gracile Zone, Camp Wisdom Member, Upper Britton Formation of the Eagle Ford Group here in Texas (Late Cenomanian-Early Turonian, 92-95mya), and had probably my best hunt from this site, including several different ammonites, a few shark teeth, my first Enchodus, and 26 Ferroranina dichrous crabs! First find was this very nice Yezoites delicatulus (Scaphitidae) ammonite A very worn Ptychodus sp. (Ptychodontidae) shark tooth:

    Cretaceous of Bulgaria

    Hello everyone! Been some time away from hunting as business consumes now most of my free time. Anyway, around May, I stopped at a small river that I saw while returning from another hunt. I found some stuff including a big Inoceramus (Thx @caterpillar for helping with ID) The place look promising but I could not find further publication or information about that. Searching for geologic maps, I found this site: http://www.geokniga.org/maps and thanks to this and the now known age of Inoceramus, I managed to pin point on map the formation. I searched only

  14. Nice and sunny weather to hunt on the French West coast near Jard sur Mer Vendée last week
  15. My wife and I went hunting for a couple hours this morning to the Stratford Hills to look in some Mowry Shale. We only collected for an hour since the sun was coming up and getting very hot. We found a lot of fish scales and some partial ammonites with their impressions. From what I understand there are only two genus's of ammonite found in Mowry shale, Metengonoceras and Neogastroplites. I am still trying to narrow down which genus they are. But it was a great trip with our first ammonites for our collection.
  16. In the summer of 2020 jpc and I had planned to get together in Eastern Wyoming to collect. That trip was unfortunately aborted by the coronavirus outbreak that year. This year, that conversation resumed and a new plan for a three day excursion in June emerged. I decided to make it a two week long car trip, driving all the way from New York, a longer car trip than any I've made in the past 25 years. That would afford me the opportunity to stop at some other sites on the way there and back, plus see some family. Another big reason for driving was an opportunity to visit and collect at the Big Ce
  17. Today @PFOOLEY and I went behind the scenes at the NMMNH&S. Thanks to Dr. Spencer G. Lucas for letting us in and showing us some amazing specimens. We started with some heteromorphs... ....donated from Utah There were other ammonites... We then ventured into the other room full of goodies... ...this Parasaurolophus.. See it? Some plant fossils...
  18. I recently bought this on online with no provenance, from a buyer with 1 feedback and some rubbish photos. To be honest I figured either nothing would turn up or itd be concrete, which is what I was hoping for (needed a doorstop) 'Unfortunately', it appears to be real, and now I'm interested. I'd appreciate any input. I've tried to show the shell patterns in some of the photos, as well as other fossils in the matrix base.
  19. Hey y'all! I am a geology/paleontology student at Texas A&M and I am researching the Austin Chalk. I was wondering if anyone had any good Austin localities near the Waco/Temple area or anywhere near 35 all the way up to Dallas. I’ve researched a few old papers and found a couple of spots but I figured this forum could be a good outcrop resource as well. Would love some help! Thanks so much.

    Flea market finds

    Finally images these items I purchased from a flea market yesterday. 2 coasters made of pieces of stone cemented as a mosaic and including an ammonite, 12cm square. Also a shark tooth with symmetrical root and two double cusps, 30mm wide and 31mm deep. A sea urchin, polished on top, 7cm x 7cm.
  24. 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
  25. 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.
