    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
  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

    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!
  4. 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.

    Your "wish list"

    What is your "wish list"? My wish list, i think is this: 1) Morrison fm Sauropod tooth 2) Acrocanthosaurus (I know that is very, very rare and i will never get one) 3) Troodon tooth 4) Suchomimus 5) Ceratosaur tooth 6) Morrison theropod 7) Dimetrodon tooth 8) Tyrannosaurid tooth 9) Acheroraptor 10) Pliosaur tooth I write only about dinosaurs, reptiles and synapsid because if i will add more clade, is very hard to make the list.
  6. I have a collection of at least 50 fossils, and at this point, I have something from every major time period and major life group. I've been collecting for a couple of years now, with a focus on trilobites but I have lots of other things too. But I am being to be concerned that through collecting, I am taking away material that could be studied by scientists to learn more about prehistoric life. Of course things like Elrathia Kingii are so numerous and well studied that I think pretty much anyone could or should be able to own one, but sometimes I will purchase a fossil and there will be littl

    Lesofprimus Fossil Collection

    Here are a few photos of my entire collection spread out in my living room between 3 seperate tables and separated by groups; Table #1 Crocodilians, Theropod Dinosaurs, Marine Mammals and Marine Reptiles. Table #2 77 Different Shark Teeth Species. Table #3 Amphibians and Reptiles, Miscellaneous Fossils and Fish.
  8. Hi This will hopefully end up being a long thread over the next years, but has JUST begun this adventure into fossils after being a vintage toy collecter for years. Has been a dinosaur fan since early childhood and is SOOO happy to own a piece of history and dream about getting a huge collection (Without the need for selling our house ) This is my very first fossil, and its a 3,35" Serrated Carcharodontosaurus in great condition - Been looking a long time for this piece that had the right size, condition, nice tip and serrations ...........................
  9. I've been collecting casually for about 40 years in the UK, mostly on the Yorkshire coast and have built quite a collection of, what I think, are reasonable ammonites and other fossils, some of which can be seen in IMGP3195 below. I have either found these already split or been able to split them quite easily with just a hammer and chisel. But I have also amassed a large number of unprepared part eroded nodules which I am unsure how to split or prepare as seen in IMGP3197. Wondered if anyone can suggest how to go about uncovering these ammonites without damaging them in the process. I hav

    My humble little collection

    I was given a bag of fossils by a family friend, somewhere around 1985, and I absolutely cherished them when I was a boy. I was all in on fossils and dinosaurs. Fast forward all these years and I stumbled upon this old bag of fossils and my 5 year old son was enthralled by what he found in that old bag. He loves dinosaurs and sharks, like any 5 year old boy, and this was just the spark he and I needed to start a new collection. Our first piece was the 4.75 inch meg tooth in the middle. I follow a guy on Instagram and he found this off the coast of Florida, in an area close t
  11. Here is a thread to share some of your rarest partials that if whole would've been incredible specimens, but you know how it is sometimes... Yet they still amazing to own a piece of. I will start off by sharing a piece of the tail of a Probolichas Kristiae, an incredibly unique looking rare lichid trilobite from Oklahoma that would've of been incredible if whole of course yet this piece still has amazing detail and I am more that happy to own
  12. 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. I'd gotten a bag of micro-matrix from hell creek and I got some ossified tendon fragments A partial Pachycephalosaurus? caudal vertebra from Harding County SD A jaw fragment from an indeter
  13. 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
  14. 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.

    Teeth fossils

    Hello everyone, I'm looking for people who have teeth fossils collections to help build a dataset for my graduation project which will be an application that does identify a tooth and extract information from the tooth image. If you don't mind sharing your dataset or a subset of it, please reply to this topic or PM me. Thanks in advance.
  16. 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.
  17. 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
  18. 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
  19. 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
  21. 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.
  22. 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?
