    2021 Richmond Trips

    While 2021 was an extremely difficult year with coivd and the loss of my mother we were able to make it out to Richmond in NW Queensland for 2 fossil digs. The conditions out here can very harsh 40c plus days so we did a bit of night time digging under lanterns to avoid the heat. The material here is marine cretaceous sediments from the Toolebuc formation. Our goals this year was to finally find a large ichthyosaur bone (I have found 2x isolated teeth in the past) and find a NW Queensland ammonite. Below are some of best finds from the two digs. While the i
  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

    Texas-sized ammonites

    Happy Fossil Friday everyone! In today's video offering, I sneak across the border into Texas to hunt for those Texas-sized ammonites, and I met another YouTuber on the way.
  4. 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...
  5. During the Christmas holiday we had the opportunity to go on 2 field trips to the north of France. 1st one was just after Christmas when we visited the Turonian part of the cliffs. Here we found a couple of nice ammonites ( Mammites nodosoides and a realy nice Fagesia catinus ) and a big flint echinoid. (with @Natalie81 and @Euhoplites) The second trip was last weekend, but we had no luck with the weather this time and we had heavy rainfall for most of the day. Also lots of competition that day. Not a lot of fossils to be found that day: a small flint echi

    Texas Baby Ammonites?

    Hey All During my prep of another ammonite I found these two small guys. Are they infant ammonites or gastropods? Planko
  7. Hello everyone! Been almost 2 years since I last visited that site and left in situ a nice multiblock. I was thinking again and again @taj reply and tried to correct that mistake. However, every year the site seems to be less accessible and there are rumors that it's forbidden to search there for fossils due to the proximity of the archeological site of the theater, regardless the fact the outcrop is located within private land. Nevertheless, last Saturday 13/11 we visited the place with a friend. Visited 3 possible outcrops without much results. 1. Carnian exposure

    It was a baculites graveyard

    Fossil Friday once again! This is the last of the South Dakota exploration trip, hunting the Pierre shale for cephalopods and hopefully a mosasaur. Although the first half of the Pierre shale exploration went pretty slow, it wasnt without a few nice finds. The second part, we were extremely fortunate in that we got to meet Neal Larson and hear a short talk about the local Pierre shale formation, and then he took us out to his personal hunting site.
  9. Hello everyone. Proposing a trade of NSR miscellaneous stuff for trade for ammonites. I have mosy verts, gastropods, calcite covered gastropods, calcite covered clams, couplebfish verts, one more tylosaurus tooth, sharks teeth, etc.. Tell me what you want and I'll see if I have it.

    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.
  11. Hi everyone These two pieces were collected by my boyfriends father and his family about 60 years ago on the Jurassic coast of Charmouth/Lyme Regis. A little while ago he brought them out to show me and said I could keep the ones I liked. I chose these two, but not to keep. My idea was to prep them, reveal the fossils inside and give them to him at Christmas. I used a Dremel with specialised tips and a sewing needle in a pin vice under a microscope. Overall I'm quite happy with how they turned out, not perfect, but I can see my own improvement. The larger s

    Oxfordien ammonites

  13. Hello! I’m back from a trip to Texas, and while there I did quite a lot of fossil hunting. I’m not going to be uploading everything here (because I found quite a bit and I feel a bit bad putting so many), but I figured I’d post the ones I’m most stumped on. I’d really appreciate any help. I’m on mobile, so I’m not sure if these will upload in order (they should, but if not I’ll fix it on PC soon). 1: Not sure what this is, but I really like how it’s intact on both sides. Found at Benbrook Lake, Fort Worth to the left of the marina. 2: My dad is mostly interested in this one. May

    New trip to the chalk of France

    Last Saturday, Natalie and I went for a trip to the chalk cliffs in Northern France. We got there early and we were surprised at the parking by a friend who happened to have the same idea as us . @Euhoplites So now we were 3 to hit the beach. We were quite lucky with the weather, at least dry, and not to cold for this time of the year. We did get a decent haul to, a few ammonites, a se urchin, a realy nice nautiloid. Natalie also found some pretty shark teeth. The best find for me that day was a rare and very well preserved ammonite Hyphoplites falcatus. Enjoy th

    Auction Find

    Today I stopped by a local auction house, about 1 hour from home, that usually has Native American artifacts and fossils, today was no different. I picked up this nice mounted display piece of 3 pyritized Jurassic ammonites from Russia. When I arrived at home, I showed it to my wife and she stated that it was the prettiest fossil that she has ever seen me buy- Lol. Here are some pics of some of the other pieces that they had, some of these pieces went for prices that regular fossil collectors would never pay, it was insane. I am glad only one other
  16. Hey everyone. Thought I would give this a go. If this goes well I can probably put together a couple more like this and maybe a couple packages of other items from the NSR. These are all from the North Texas River in Northeast Texas. Unprepped as I found them. Well, maybe a soft toothbrush and water. Two mosy vertebrae, calcite covered clam (Incoceramus barabini) with some shell still there covered, red clam steinkern (Incoceramus barabini) , red ammonite piece, 2 gastropod (Gyrodes major) steinkerns, clam steinkern (Anomia argentaria), one black and 2 red baculite pieces (nice su
  17. 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.

    Ammonites from France

    Hello everyone. Bought these from Ron. Thank you Ron. Seems I have several species from what he recalls as being Aveyron France and Toarcian in age. I have one more species I think but any help on these would be appreciated. Also, any information on how to preserve pryitized fossil would be appreciated.
  19. Last sunday October 24th I decided to visit the old Andil clay quarry at Liesberg in Switzerland, just over two hours driving from where I live, to see what fossils I might find there. Now a nature reserve where collecting is tolerated as long as the natural parts are not disturbed, the deposits at this quarry, mined for cement production between 1934 and 1980, date to the Upper Callovian and Lower to Middle Oxfordian (source). It is thus stratigraphically - though not petrologically - comparable to the geology of Vaches Noires in Normandy, with which I'm much more familiar, albeit with the in

  21. Last month my boyfriend and I went on our first ever trip to the Isle of Wight. We stayed for four full days and managed to squeeze in a fossil trip each day. On the first day we met up with one of my friends who was staying on the island with her boyfriend who is an 'islander'. We decided to visit the popular Compton Bay, an interesting and well known cretaceous site famous for dinosaur remains. When we arrived the tide was quite high and I didn't realise just how long it takes to go down (several hours, for future reference), but we were able to get onto the beach and walk a some

    French ammonites

    I bought these ammonites some years ago. The only information I got was that the ammonites were from France. Does anyone know the possible species & locality of them?

    A couple of ammonites

    I have these unidentified ammonites, and I would like to know what they are. I believe that the second one is Desmoceras latidorsatum, comparing it with internet photos. The first one is from the Oxfordian of Charente (France), and the other I don't know. 1.- Oxfordian, Charente (France). 2.- Look at suture lines. Thanks!
  24. Hi Everyone. I was fortunate to be able to take a weeklong vacation trip the week of Labor Day, my fourth since I began collecting fossils. I wanted to visit friends and family and do some collecting. I was able to do all of that. It was busy, but there was also some quality relaxation time. It proved to be a good break. I flew into the Denver airport, rented a car and drove to Colorado Springs where I was invited to stay with my second cousin and her family. Next morning I was on my way to Florissant Fossil Quarry. I've known about Florissant for over 50 years and over 40 years ag
  25. Hi everyone, I’ve just returned from a trip to Rocken End, Isle of Wight with some Cretaceous chalk ammonites in hand. This chalk is incredibly delicate to the point where handling is almost scary. I have the smaller things soaking in water to desalinate but I’m worried about these two items. The whole ammonite is the nicest and biggest we found (with a little ammo that already looks cracked…) and so delicate I’m worried that soaking it will destroy it? The larger block contains at least one nice ammonite and potentially more, I don’t know whether to prep it
