    My Crabs!

    I wanted to thank everyones thats helped me figure out what I'm doing! With the stimulus checks I purchased me a cheap 290 dremel on online, specialized tips, and some paraloid. I got em all together about a month ago and have been prepping most days since. This has been really fun to do and I'm thankful for the knowledge y'all shared with me. The crabs from left to right are the order I found and prepped them and are also named charles, duchess, and peanut butter!

    Several Hop Brook Specimens

    Several fossils found by my friends and I in Hop Brook we need help IDing, first, perhaps the tip of a crab claw? (graduations on the side are one mm each) the second, bog iron, or the relief of a worm burrow? the third.... uhhh.... I'm not sure, and I being the "expert" of the group, was given it for safe keeping

    Fossil ID Matoaka trip 2

    Hi Again! for Easter this year I decided to go to the Calvert cliffs for some Easter egg fossil hunting. it was a lovely day out got to talk with some nice folks. I wanted to share some of my finds and my IDs of them to check if I got them right before I put labels on them in my collection. 1) Stingray teeth, most likely eagle ray, although the grayish one looks to me like a duck billed ray. 2) Mako Shark Isurus hastalis upper 3) Hemipristis Serra upper 4) Extinct tiger shark Physogaleus contortus 5) Extinct tiger shark Galeocerdo (I think the one

    Possible crab fossil?

    Can anyone ID this please? Found in Surrey, England on farmland/woodland. Possibly the underside of a crab? Thanks
  5. In February, I sifted at the shoreline on Caspersen Beach and Venice Beach, Florida. Finds include: (left) a crab claw & 2 ray tail barbs..... plus a variety of small shark teeth and ray mouth plates.

    South texas fossiling

    I took advantage of the nice weather on my last couple days off and went to a couple sites around town, in no particular order here's the most interesting things I found. First a worn ptychodus anonymous tooth from the eagle ford shale. next what I think is a pachidiscus travisi from the basal pecan gap chalk and a half of a graptocarcinus texanus carapace from the buda formation in a location I had never found anything particulary interesting before. Quite worn but still recognizable And while normally one finds echinoids and ammonites in the georgetown this time I only f
  7. I was lucky enough to find a crab concretion, and not knowing what it was, opened it with a hammer. I included images below for reference of what I am talking about. * Part of the leg and claw are in imprint. What is the best approach getting them out without damage? I'm thinking manual tools? * It looks like there might be another concretion connected to that piece. Would I be able to freeze-thaw to open it now that the other fossil is exposed or could this cause damage?
  8. Thanks to a post from Candace ( @thelivingdead531 ) I found out about the Aurora Fossil Museum's box o' matrix that they sell! (all moneys benefit the museum, which was a bonus). I got two Gallon Bags of matrix to sift through and wow....some really great stuff! They send a really good ID sheet too. But of course, there's even more info here on the FF! So here are some of my favorite finds so far. I've only gone through about 6 cups of matrix!! SO MUCH MATRIX! I havn't really done much ID'ing yet (the shark teeth) but my favorite by far is the crab stuff....love those pincers!! And the colo
  9. This is supposed to be a Xantho (Lophoxanthus) Scaberrimus from West Java,Indonesia. It looks blatantly fake to me (no articulations on the chelae!?) - or, do such "carving like" fossils actually exist? Several are being on offer now on that auction site, which is doubly suspicious. Thanks in advance

    Crab Fossil

    Hello, Can anybody give me an ID on this crab fossil also a location? Thanks
  11. Do you see any obvious red fkag with this one? It is described as Zanthopsis dufouri, 8×7×5 cm, Eocene (47.8-56 m/y), from the French region of Aude. It llooks very nice, but what both attracts and puzzles me it that it appears ti be "sitting" onto its matrix, like a jewel on a silk cushion. What do you thing? An excellent prep work, or...?

  12. January in Texas is usually, weather wise, fantastic hunting. For seasonal allergy sufferers (like me) it can be miserable. But, we had a GREAT rain...two days of decent downpours and the temps were in the upper 60s, so, hoping the cedar pollen had been knocked out of the air a bit by the rains....I donned my mask and spent three hours out in the great outdoors and was I ever rewarded for my "perseverance"!!! hahahahha I had been hoping to find a Glen Rose Formation (Lower Cretaceous) Shark Tooth for a couple of years. I knew they could be found! Erich ( @erose) told me so and I believe him

    Help with fossil crab ID

    I'm looking for help with finding a genera from this chela/ crab claw, found in Cenozoic rock from Northwest Nelson, South Island, New Zealand. It is fairly weathered, and was originally split between two separate stones lying on the beach. A little reconstruction and preparation produced the result in the image. It was not in-situ so I am unsure which rock group it is associated with. I'm guessing it is either late Oligocene or early Miocene in age based on what I know of the area, but I could be wrong. I'm hoping there are some crab experts out there who will know what this is straight

    I found a crab arm

    Im back at it again collecting more concretions. I found a bunch of small ones once again from the lincoln creek formation! But the wild thing is that I found this: Me and a bud were getting this concretion out of the rock when this arm was exposed. I plan to use a pin and hammer to get the tip of the claws out and I think I should super glue them onto the arm? And what can I do to preserve this arm because this is really cool.
  15. Hello. Does anyone know about the authenticity of the fossil crabs and lobsters below? I've seen them pop up on a few different sites and I'm suspicious because they all look nearly identical. Unfortunately, I don't have any information about age, location, etc. Thanks for your help.
  16. Crustaceans are a large, diverse group of anthropods which includes the crabs, prawns, lobsters, barnacles and other shelled animals. Perhaps owing to their hard shells and marine lifestyles, crustaceans have a rich and extensive fossil record, extending up to the Cambrian, though they do not appear in abundance until the Carboniferous. They make for attractive and familiar fossils, and are one of my favorite groups to collect. Allow me to present my humble collection.

    Enchodus jaw/teeth? And crab claw?

    My 29th trip to Big Brook and I decided to try to get there by an unnamed tributary I found on a map. Got to explore an area with little evidence of usage as shown by the paucity of glass and plastic. Overgrown and thorny and I think I saw my first bear footprint (photo below). Posted below are photos of what I think is an Enchodus jaw and two teeth and also what I think is a partial crab claw but much bigger than any I’ve found before. I also think I found my first arrowhead. Any info greatly appreciated.
  18. I purchased this from Indonesia, I have seen a lot available and was not real expensive. It is stuck in matrix that is very solid, the crab is exposed and polished. Hard to tell if it is real or some kind of cast mold in a concrete mixture for matrix. Wanted to see if anyone knew for sure or not. Is there some possible tests on the matrix to see if it is glued or concrete mixture?

    Monster Crab Claw?

    I found what I believe is pretty big piece of Crab claw or at least the biggest one I have or seen from NJ. Anyone else assist.. On top of this my find of the day was a monster Goblin tooth just shy of 2”
  20. Out of the countless New Jersey cretaceous crab claws I've seen and found this has to be one of the strangest claw partials yet. Seems to be an ornamented shell as apposed to the smooth claw textures that are typically found. Definitely a very interesting piece, anyone have any ideas on a possible species or if any ornamental crabs have found in nj cretaceous, or any other new jersey cretaceous hunters ever come across one similar? Definitely a head scratcher

    Crab? Pareidolia? What?

    Like all of us I pick up a lot of maybes/I don’t knows. I took this one home for a better look. With the loupe I think I see something and crab is my best guess. The whole piece is 1.5 inches. I don’t want to believe this is geologic. Your help greatly appreciated.

    Phevo's prep thread

    A year and some ago I bought a Krantz W 224 airscribe to start doing some mechanical preparation and promised to do a prep thread once I got started. Prior to this type of prep I have done a lot of silicone casting (which I might make a separate thread for) and on softer matrix used a mix of dental picks/tooth brushes. I have had several different setups over the past year, and the past 2 months or so can be seen on the following picture After spending a tedious amount of time with the rough matrix removal I decided to add a Cp9361 airscribe, which has sped
  24. Hello all! I recently found a new spot that turns out is Walnut Formation. Finding lots of nice stuff there...big Echinoids - Phymosomas, a Tetragrmma and some little Leptosalenia mexicanas. But I've found a few things that I can't ID. @erose - I relooked at the presentation on Albian crabs you did for the PSoA last month and thought this one was in there, but now I don't see it? I thought you had collected one like this.. Thanks for any help, y'all! This little Bivalve looks like a Plicatula but those are not found in the Walnut? (According to the Houst
  25. I was recently reorganizing my fossil collection and thought I would share some pieces I collected during Paleontology field trips in undergrad at Alabama. I'm glad I took thorough notes at the time! The demopolis chalk is a popular formation for finding Exogyra/ostrea/pycnodonte shells and shark teeth. We visited a site in Tupelo, MS many times for surface collecting. Some of the cool pieces I found were many fragments of a mosasaur jaw (top pic, top 2 slots), a Squalicorax kaupi tooth, a scyliorhinus(?) tooth, bony fish vertebrae, and bony fish teeth. I was told the dark fossils
