  1. I have decided to start a thread showing pieces from my collection. I usually post in the "mailbox score" thread, but have found that my additions get lost in the volume of postings in the thread. So my collection will be in my own thread.
  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, This may seem like a weird topic but I wanted to ask here because this keeps happening occasionally and I am unsure of what the cause behind it is and whether this could be of any concern. When going through my fossil collection, whether it be putting new specimens up for display, looking through my collection, dusting pieces off, moving them, etc. I occasionally see small translucent white bugs slowly scuttling across the surface of them, I believe that these are springtails as that seems like the only plausible organism to be found there that also has that appearance and bo
  4. So many shark, dinosaurs topic! Now I want to see your favourite and more particular fossil mammal! It can be your rarest or your strangest fossil but the fossil you love the most. Let me start with this partial juvenile metailurus mandible from Hipparion red clay of Gansu. The erupting tooth still preserve a perfect micro crenulation, I just love it.
  5. Hi everyone, it’s been a while since I have posted on here. Next summer my family is moving to the Fort Collins area and I was wondering if there were any sites or natural areas to hunt/collect in. I read on fossilspot.com that the south shore of Horsetooth Reservoir (west of Fort Collins) contains Late Cretaceous Fox Hills formation containing “Inoceramus, Ostrea, etc.”. I have already planned to get down to Florissant Fossil Quarry (despite the extremely expensive one hour access fee). My mom has friends with ranches in the central part of the state that have extensive land with mountain ATV

    A Fossil A Day.....

    A Fossil A Day....keeps the blues away! Or something like that... I started an Instragram account (jamielynnfossilquest) and am posting a fossil a day, so I figured I should do that on here, to REAL fossil enthusiasts! I'm a few days behind, so I will start out with a few more than one a day but then it will settle down to One Fossil (but I will admit, I'll probably miss a few days, but I'll double up or whatever.) I'll start with Texas Pennsylvanian era, but will branch out to other locations and time periods, so expect a little of everything! So enjoy A Fossil A Day! Texas
  7. Long story short my grandmother use to order fossils from a website. She would keep some of the authentication certificates because I was so young at the time of receiving these. When she had passed I learned she lost almost all of the paperwork. I've been struggling to identify these with such little information to go off of. Any help is greatly appreciated. First image to last: - Small roughly 1'' tooth - Was thought to be plesiosaur tooth but it looks slightly different then the confirmed plesiosaur tooth I own - unknown -wrist or ankle of some sort, mammoth
  8. First one was theorized to be a gerastos trilobite, but I am unsure after comparing images The second image came with a note that said pachycephalosaurus vertebrae, hell creek. I don't know how accurate that is but if someone could at least tell me what type of vertebrae this is because all the ones I looked up were not this intricate Third and fourth one I have no idea what they are they never had any notes attached when I unpacked. I completely understand if nobody can identify exactly what they are but if someone can tell me what bones they at least are I'm happy wit

    Muffinsaurus Collection

    I don't know if I'm posting this in the right place but I figured I'd show off my collection. I don't have many of my own finds cleaned up enough so I'll start with the ones I have bought or have been gifted. I don't have much, but I'm proud of what I do have (except that spino tooth). Note: I just figured out how the label pictures. If I made any mistakes please let me know. Zarafasaura oceanis Zarafasaura oceanis (Unknown fish jaw) Prognathodon Spinosauridae Amber with ants in it (I got it at a gift shop
  10. Hey all. I just wanted to pick everyone’s brain and see everyone’s opinion on what trilobite they believe is necessary for a collection. I think it is safe to say all collections both beginner and advanced should have at least one Utah Elrathia kingii. While super common and pretty inexpensive in terms of trilobites they are one of the classic images when someone thinks trilobite and so for that reason I believe they are a perfect specimen for any collection.
  11. I was given permission to post the remaining collection of my friend, a fellow collector who lives in my city. This is a guy who had the sensational privilege of collecting the Burgess shales for 10 years, eventually in a capacity to earn his MSc in Earth Sciences. He and I collect on the odd Sunday when he can get through his honey-do list, but he works as a property appraiser now. He also collected extensively throughout Ontario, and even picked up old bottles around Toronto. Lots of interesting highlights here, including an autographed Stephen Jay Gould book, a Walcott specimen card, and pl

    Old North Sea Mammal Collection

    I bought parts of an old collection a couple of years ago. It cotained a bunch of peices from the north sea. Some of the fossils came without tags and i would like to ask for some help identifying what type of species they might have came from. First of is this vertebra. As far as come with my own research im guessing woolly rhino?
  13. Hello everybody, I have question that I always wanted to ask,but it was so dumb that I always avoided asking it. However,curiosity was stronger and I finally decided to go for it and ask it. OK,I would like to know how can someone who collects fossils learn more about fossils he got and find out more about that particular specimen? Is there any sort of ''study'' that can be done with some fossilized specimen like etc. seashell in matrix that would provide more information about that specimen as well as specie? I would like to know more about fossils I have,but t

    Tooth fish or reptile?

    Hi Is this fish or reptile tooth? Location :Zakrzówek,Kraków, Southern Poland. Age:? Size:near 1,5 cm
  15. Things are getting pretty serious over in The Fossil Zone, so I cleared off a few books and replaced them with fossils. Who needs to read, anyway? Feel free to ask questions about particular pieces. Whole collection: The turtle skull is real, but the surrounding matrix has been stained by the preparator for better visibility. Some here might recognize the new claw that arrived broken in the mail There is a Vinctifer comptoni fish on the back right, along with a negative Grallator footprint, which I can't seem to find a good way to display. Ne
  16. So I'm kind of more focusing on dinosaur teeth. This topic is where I'll post my dinosaur teeth. I'll still post the bones in my other topic though. Here is the collection so far. My Edmontosaurus teeth A couple new additions to this include a partially rooted tooth that I'd found, And an interesting spitter tooth. My tyrannosaur tooth collection And my Triceratops teeth I'll probably be posting some more soon.

    My Fossil Collection

    I've been collecting fossils since 2011 and have since acquired a substantial number of specimens. The focus of my collection is mostly on fossils from the United States, including from my home state of Pennsylvania. To start things off, I'll show the highlights of my collection of fossils from the Kinzers formation, which runs through Lancaster and York counties in Pennsylvania, not far from where I live. It's known for trilobite and echinoderm fossils and dates back to 512ma, older than the Burgess Shale. I remember seeing trilobites from the Kinzers at a local museum when I was younger, wh
  18. 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.

    My Collection

    Hi everyone on Fossil Forum, I am pretty new to fossil collection but I have decided to post what I have currently collected and will continue to update this page with new fossils that I acquire over time. I am now looking to acquire rarer teeth now! Details of Specimen: Triceratops Tooth Hell Creek Formation, Carter County, Montana Late Cretaceous Period (65 Million Years Old) Measurements: 1.5 inches long x 3/4 inch wide x5/8 inch thick Weight: 8.9 Grams No restoration at all. all natural specimen. I love the way this looks and its huge!
  20. Hello! This topic will show my personal finds from the Ignaberga Quarry, Sweden. Ignaberga is a quarry in Skåne County, Sweden. It is in the Kristianstad Basin. The age is Upper Cretaceous. Santonian to Maastrichtian. But most of the outcrops are Lower Campanian in age. The environment was a warm to subtropical shallow inland sea with an archipelago and small Peninsulas. I will be updating this thread with pictures of my finds. Enjoy & regards - Adriano

    Texas finds.

    Just sharing, let me know if something stands out. Thank you.
  22. One of the newer teeth in my Megalodon tooth collection. I have been collecting Megalodon Teeth for some months. now. The tooth is around 4 8/16 inches big and has some restoration on the root. I love the colors and serrations! Show me your South American megalodon teeth!

  25. Hi everybody! This my dinosaur collection. This is my Hell Creek and Judith River shelf. It's a bit empty but I'm working on getting more fossils. I also have a replica Triceratops skull that I had 3-d printed. This is my tyrannosaur tooth fragment from the Hell Creek fm of Harding County SD.
