  5. Greetings I am a Geologist who works in Northern Alberta and B.C., and I have been finding some great Pleistocene Horse and Bison bones in river gravels. My bones were looked at and samples sent for Carbon dating through the provincial Museum and a Professor buddy of mine. The Horse bones were 22-25k years old and the Bison bone was 44k years old. They paid for the analyses and I am donating them to the Museum. All were found within a couple kilometers on the same river. I found these two this year. They were very close to where I found the Horse bones.

    Trilobite ID please?

    I recently rescued several trilobites from a dusty cardboard box at an estate sale. The orange trilobite was unlabeled and a little over 3.5 inches long. The tan colored trilobite is 1.25 inches long and was labeled as “Canada Trilobite”. I realize it isn’t much to go on, but was hoping someone could provide a little more information if at all possible.

  10. Hi guys I decided to rescue and acquire a new unlabelled specimen. It appears to be a rugose solitary coral that can possibly come from the Devonian of south western Ontario. Can anyone give me any leads on the species level??
  11. Hi guys so today I came across a new shop that popped up in downtown Hamilton, Ontario. Anyway long story short I bought what appears to be Silurian coral fossil that originated somewhere on the Niagara Escarpment in Ontario or the State of New York. This fossil came from a peculiar museum that liquidated its collections in Niagara of Ontario and closed but the fossil didnt come with a label. Can anyone help me pin down what it is? I have never encountered a fossil like this on the Niagara Escarpment of Hamilton, Ontario. Also this was being sold along with o

    Strange textured rock

    Hi All, First post for me. Excited to participate! I have recently taken up fossil hunting in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada's river valley creek beds. I have found several fossilized bone fragments, petrified wood fragments and even a few first nations artifacts. All of these have been found on small creek bed shelves during low water. The geological time period is mesozoic. The first object I would appreciate any feedback on is an irregularly textured flat rock or potentially a fossil of some kind. It was found loose on the surface next to the water. It has an

    Is this Coprolite?

    Can anyone identify this? I think it might be coprolite.
  14. So I decided that I would finally make a point of documenting some of these back country field excursions, and made a Youtube channel to keep the videos all in one place. Here's a a rather ordinary extraction of a placenticeras ammonite found the day before we did a little field work with some paleontologists. The GoPro is a fun addition to my kit, and makes it a lot easier to document the actual process of finding and extracting these things in the field. Anyway, I'll let the video speak for itself - enjoy! (click the image to open video link)

    Cretaceous Jaw Fragment? Please Help ID

    Found this fossil while surface collecting in the Alberta Badlands (Canada) North Of Drumheller in the Red Deer river valley. Looking for some help to ID this unusual looking fossil. If I had to guess I'd say it looks like a possible jaw fragment? Any help to ID would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

    Toronto (Upper Ordovician) Fossil ID

    Hey everyone! I found my first fossil last weekend in a creek near the Don River in midtown Toronto. From my knowledge reading through this forum, it seems to be packed with crinoid stem fossils. I’d really appreciate a confirmation, to learn more about the age of the fossil and maybe even the species.

    Freshwater Fossil

    Found this fossil loose on a limestone shoreline on St. Joseph Island located at the north end of Lake Huron in Ontario, Canada. I am a civil engineer and have some experience with rocks but I’m fairly new to fossils. Any help identifying would be great!

    Pleistocene Mammal Jaw, ID requested

    hello everyone, I saw this on our favorite website. It is a mammal jaw dredged up off of Newfoundland, Canada. It is likely Pleistocene in age. The piece is approximately 12 cm in length. It is clearly an herbivore, but doesn't look like bison, horse, camel, tapir or deer to me; however, I am still learning to ID my Pleistocene mammals. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
  21. During one of my hikes exploring the badlands in Central Alberta Canada (Scollard formation) near the Red Deer river I found this strange flat & thin piece of what appears to be fossilized bone. As you can see from the pictures it fans outward and it's quite thin, to me it almost looks similar to a aquatic flipper although I obviously am not sure at all what this could be. My instinct wants to say turtle piece possibly? Any help to ID this cool fossil would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!
  22. Hello everyone, while I was getting some exercise exploring the badlands here in central Alberta (Red Deer river valley Scollard formation I believe) I found a piece of fossilized bone that must have been recently exposed due to spring thaw. I am no guru however it appears to have some predation marks on it (third picture left side) & to me looks like it could be a leg bone? I'm looking for some help confirm these are in fact predation marks & also to ID the bone itself if possible. I know its difficult due to it being just a small fragment but any help or additional info would be gr
  23. I have been collecting fossils for many years, but this fossil is without a doubt the strangest and most mysterious of the fossils I’ve ever found- I would really appreciate your help in helping solve this mystery of what it is and how old it is! It was found on the rocky shores of Lake Huron in Southampton, Ontario. I initially was interested in it because it looked like a boot and I thought it was a native carving, but realized it must be a fossil of something I’ve never seen before. It’s very interesting to me because it almost seems to be coiled like a spine of an animal, but could also be
