  1. Is the fossil site at Union Wash worth going to? I've read that the site's been depleted of fossils. Is that true?
  2. Are there any Santa Margarita fm fossil sites that are still open/able to be collected from in and around the SF Bay Area? I want to try and hunt from the formation but all the classic sites, like bean creek, are now closed for collecting.

    West Coast Shark Tooth

    Good Afternoon, On Easter Sunday as I was putting my boat into the trailer in Newport Beach, CA (Back Bay), my son was playing in the mud near the launch ramp and came across this tooth in the muck around a few rocks. I was hoping someone might be able to help me identify this shark tooth. Thanks, Matt

    bones, sandstone, and rocks

    Strange fossil - this fossil has it all.... white solid bone (lick test>?), hardened brown non-rock like material (told possible brain encasing?), all encased in sandstone, hardened sand, and brownish marrow like substance. When I first came across this (along with many other from Scotts Valley, CA - approx. 40-50 years ago found by my father in a ravine) Ive been attempting to uncover it (it was a large blank piece of sandstone). probably not the smartest thing to do but this one came easy (or shall I say easier) that the many others. I have several more pics if interested, but could
  5. Hey everyone! Going to STH somewhat soon, I plan on going to Ernst quarries(or if anyone has any other sites they’d recommend), and was wondering if there were any tips anyone could give me, since This will be my first time. Also, are there safety instructions they give you when you get there?
  6. I have Elrathia kingii, Itagnostus interstrictus, and Acrothele subsidua. Also, rare rock and mineral from California, eclogite and benitoite..

    Dugong & ?

    Its been awhile. Ran over to the big sand pit for a few the other day and came up with these certs and one other. Fell from on high so really tough to see what layer they came from.

    Need Help ID-ing

    This is a wonderful forum and I am pleased to find it. I have a fossil that needs to be ID'd. I found it in Philo, CA in Mendocino County, USA There were very large rock cliffs full of rocks near the Navarro River. It looks like a tail bone of a tiny creature. And maybe a skull? It is egg shaped. What caught my eye was the consecutive dashed. Not sure it if it is a tail. Thank you for your efforts ladies and gentlemen. Regards, Ted

  10. Just wanted to share some recent finds. and I would like someone to check out the picture that looks like trilobite ?
  11. Can someone identify this fossil I found today. With the eel river on the rise and landslides, we keep finding really nice fossils.

    Sand dollar or?

    I have found a couple of these I scotia, ca. This one was completely covered with sandstone and shell, etc. Does anyone have. Idea of what it could be

    pointy sandstone, track? concretion?

    Found in Scotts Valley, CA many years ago, I came across this piece. It was covered in Sandstone which I laboriously brushed and picked at for a few days. The pointy areas are sharp and brownish in color, symmetrical and extremely hard to pick at. Also the middle is brown, and the underside has a strange texture... It feels and sounds somewhat like porcelain. after brushing and picking the sides and the bottom you can see a thin brown (yet small) hard piece jutting out. My amateur instincts think it looks like a track of some sort, but hey I really won't be surprised if it turns out to

    Is this a sea lion

    My father was a fossil hunter and left me the bulk of them. He and a friend, who owned the property where they were found, collected over the years (50 years or so) - I went with them twice when I was young. The identification logs were not found - I believe they were destroyed in a flood. I've cleaned a few of them by brushing and picking from recall of his work.. This is just one of many, I will send two more picks that may help. Thank you in advance for any help you can provide me. download.html

    Bone or concretion

    Thank you to everyone who responded t my "sea Lion" id. I'm attaching pictures of large piece that was found in the same crate of what I thought was a sea lion - the brown coloring is the same... I have several other pieces but just sending the larger ones as to not take up your time. Thank you I am sending more pictures from different angles

    California Bay Area

    I will be in Palo Alto CA this week and will have the afternoon on Tuesday to hunt fossils. I would love to find some nice sand dollars and shark teeth. If I find enough I will put some in an auction to support the forum. Any good suggestions? Thank you
  17. Here is a link to a news story on a construction site where some really cool fossils are being found! Man wish I could dig that one! All you locals in California- this will make your blood pump! Here is the link: http://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/ice-age-fossils-found-carlsbad-homes-planned-33542368
  18. Yet another successful adventure to Shark Tooth Hill Area with the Buena Vista Musuem of Natural History (BVM). I can't get enough! Here is the link if you are interested in some middle miocene in December - http://www.sharktoothhill.org/ - James P.
