  1. This is the second part of my post describing my recent fossil hunting trip with @Tales From the Shale in Utica, of which it was awesome!!! So after visiting the abandoned clay pit, we decided to go to another location in Utica one might not expect to be productive - the former peabody coal company Pit 15 (or at least its outskirts), located not to far away from Lake Shannon, Kankakee County, Illinois (I'm am not going to tell the specific route or address so the area doesn't end up being picked clean). We went there as I had heard a report that a while ago, someone found a sizable
  2. On Saturday, I went on a fossil hunting trip with @Tales From the Shale in the area of Utica, LaSalle County, Illinois. After some time driving and looking for roadcuts, we discovered an abandoned clay bed/outcrop not too far away from the town itself. There, we discovered an absolutely massive amount of shark spines and teeth! I would like to know if anyone could properly ID some of the specimens we found!! \ This is one of the best shark spines I found at the site!!! It does look somewhat like the spine of Listracanthus, but I'm not 100% sure

    Fossil or rock?

    Below Pierre shale layer SD. See many clam fossils so wondering if it's a brachipod fossil? Worth carrying 4 miles back? Ruler is 2in spacing. Any help is welcomed. Thanks

    Oglesby Fossil ID Part 3

    Not too long ago, I went fossil hunting with @Tales From the Shale and another friend at a Pennsylvanian roadcut in Oglesby, Illinois. We found a truly epic amount of fossils and I'm only now categorizing and trying to properly ID them. Here are a few I'm wondering if anyone would be able to ID? Some of the brachiopods I found there. This next one I am completely baffled as to what it could be? Maybe some part of a straight shelled nautiloid? I'm pretty sure this next one is a Chondrichthyan, but unsure o

    Port Huron, Michigan trip

    I drive 8 hours with a friend to a location he remembers from his childhood as yielding a lot. Oh boy it did. 100% worth the drive. Lake Huron, among the agates, pyrite, yooperlite, has some extraordinary Devonian fossils. All fossils were collected from the beach of his family’s property except for the fenestelid bryozoan, which was found at a gas station on the way there. please enjoy this collection of gastropods, petoskey stones, various tabulate corals, crinoids, stromatoporoids, bivalves, Brachiopods, tenteculites, horn corals, an unidentified agatized fossil in jasper matrix

    ID please

    Found on western side of Canandaigua lake, fingerlakes region of New York. Thank you
  7. Wow is all I can say. I cannot believe what I have managed to find this week alone. I went to Texas for a vacation, and I’m coming out with some of my best fossils (in my opinion) I’ve found this year. I came here hoping to score some trace fossils of what once lived here, and score some, I did! Since there are two different time zones, and 4 different types of fossils found, I’ll split them up based on environment, and time. With marine fossils going first and tracks going second. Permian first, and Cretaceous second. I’ll do a picture of the whole haul and then we’ll get started. I also was
  8. I bought these brachiopods last week, and would really like to remove this matrix. I also have more than two Brachiopods that need cleaned, I just thought I wouldn't need to take pictures of all of them. I would appreciate any help that you can give me, thanks in advance.

    Is this coral?

    I found this while I was out running the other day - it was near the top of a mountain in Southwest Virginia. Is this a coral fossil? Could the thing on the end be a brachipod fossil? Sorry my measuring tape only had inches, but I figured it was better than nothing!

    Brachiopod id

    Fossil forum, These are specimens from the Leighton Fm. They are all located on the same block. I believe that the specimens I have taken pictures of are of the same species, but don't know what species. All the available literature I have looked at has not identified the genus. Any help with the genus, and maybe even the species, would be greatly appreciated. Here are some pictures of them (internal molds on the left, external on the right):

    Lingulid brachiopod id

    Fossil forum, This is another specimen from the Leighton Fm. I had two possibilities, Lingula scobina and L. lewisii, which I found mentioned in this paper https://repository.si.edu/bitstream/handle/10088/14399/1/USNMP-45_1985_1913.pdf, and which I further researched. The main problems I have with these two species are that L. scobina has different surface sculpture, and L. lewisii is an English species. Any further guidance or suggestions? Here are some pictures of it (internal mold on the left, external on the right):

    Chonetes species brachiopod id

    Fossil forum, This is yet another fossil from the Leighton Fm, Maine, which is Silurian. I have found multiple specimens of this species, but none with such exceptionally preserved hinge spines. I think that it is in the genus Chonetes, maybe even Chonetes bastini, which is known from this formation, but I am not sure. Here are some pictures of it (internal molds on the left, external on the right):
  13. Here is my before and after on my 2nd attempt of prepping my brachiopods from Nashville. It is hard to know where to stop on these. The shale matrix is one thing but the hard, crystal matrix is another! Plus I find that the shell is not complete after cleaning the matrix, or has growth layers? which create a ridge which is very hard to clean. Anyways, I think I have learned enough that I am going to try and prep a complete shell. Wish me luck.
  14. Two summers ago, on a roundabout trip to Detroit from Texas, stumbled across an awesome road cut by accident coming out from Nashville. Wasn’t thinking about fossils, and learned after the fact that Nashville was loaded with brachiopods. Anyways, I have been messing around with the idea of cleaning what was brought back. Here is my first attempt at cleaning an imperfect specimen, just to see how well it would clean up. Any tips for further cleanup would be welcomed.

    Pretty shells

    I know brachipod and bivalves are common and many people often overlook them, but I figured i'd share some of mine i found this past month that I enjoy. A lot of them take on a white or orange color. 1 Has some bryozoans as well I believe.
  16. Hello again! Sorry for the constant posts, but I've been finding a lot of amazing stuff recently! Anyways, as the title says, this was probably one of my best hauls ever for a single day! I managed to find over a dozen different nautiloid chunks and was able to extract toooooons of super well defined and complete brachiopods from a matrix piece!! This will be another 3 part post as i have lots of pictures: Here was the full haul for the day, with ruler for reference (notches in cm). Here are some alternate angles of the nautiloids. I going to assume/believe t

    Nj Cretaceous stream today

    Had a chance to stop by a nj Cretaceous stream today for the first time since the shut down and sifted and we found a few teeth,brachiopods,crab claws and a impression,was awesome getting out today to hunt,was a beautiful day
  18. Fossils on Wheels received another generous donation to our education programs this week. TFF member @Herb sent us a box of super cool invertebrates. He sent us a diversity of fossils from the Southern US that cover a wide range of eras. These fossils will be given to students in fossil starter kits and used in hands-on activities. Herb's donation is also awesome because this pushes me to learning a lot more about invertebrate fossils. One of the best parts of teaching kids about natural history through fossil exploration is that I get to learn a lot. Good teachers learn and challenge themselv

    Good start for the New Year

    Went out yesterday and found a few kind of neat things. Big plate of brachs, and what I think are Crinoid Calyx.

    Brachiopods

    From the album: Silurian Fossils - Giles County Tennessee

    Brachiopods from Giles County Site.
  21. Found this little brachiopod on the shore of Lake Erie, near Buffalo. Measures 21mm long. Is this a Mucrospirifer species? Photo was created by focus-stacking 4 images for each side. Thanks! Zach
  22. I went to the North Pit of Hungry Hollow for a few hours on Friday. I spent most of my time digging through the clay piles and walking around the water's edge, scoping out a few recognizable shapes that are by now completely camouflaged by the clay. It's amazing that my eyes even zeroed in on my tiny trilobites but I guess they had waited long enough for me to take them home, and today was the day! One trilobite turned out to be just the head but the other is pretty cute. I met one hiker from Pennsylvania (Greg) that came through the trail along the North side of the river. I introduced m
