  1. I know I dont post as often as I used to. Death of my middle son has a bit to do with that, but I'm starting to get back to life and not just go through the motions. After last xmas my oldest boy taught me how to Zoom and use an editing software program and I went head over heals with that and everything it entails. I've actually been enjoying prepping fossils again and making videos from that prep. Now, after some years, and with help from my youngest son I have finally cleaned up my garage and getting ready for some very large prep projects. and yes, all this prep will be turned into a

    Fossil “armpit”?

    Hi All, this is my first post. I recently found this interesting bit in southern Ontario. It was in the same river that I find brachiopods and trilobites. I couldn’t figure out what it was, but I think I may have now solved it, maybe you can confirm? I’m affectionately referring to it as an “armpit” of a Bothriolepis. Obviously not an armpit but I think it might be the part where the appendage meets the head shield? My concern is the size of my specimen. The one in the book is only 90mm for the full body. That’s basically the size of my partial specimen. I’m open to all i
  3. Hello! Thank you all for taking the time to read this and (hopefully!) help me identify a very interesting find from Saskatoon! I was on a fossil hunting trip to a local exposure of Pleistocene glacial lake sediments in Saskatoon, and I took home a few samples of it to review later. While looking through one piece (the material is silt but breaks like a rock and is somewhat laminated), I saw this very strange shape. Attached are a few images, some simply in situ, others through a microscope. My apologies if the image quality is not ideal, I do not currently have any better equipment. There ar

    Flea Market Fish

    Hi gang - My fiancé’s mom came across a fossil fish at a flea market and she ended up getting it. She sent me a picture asking about its species and where it’s from, but I haven’t a clue. Any ideas? Thanks!

    Help with green river fish.

    Hello! When I bought my air abrasive a year ago the guy that I bought it from gave me a bunch of unprepped green river fish as he was retiring. One issue that seems to commonly come up is that no matter how low I set my psi or how slow I go on some fish the "skin" seems to pit and develop holes. Is there any way to avoid this? I've gone down to as low as 1-3psi with dolomite and this still happens. I've noticed that it tends to happen on disarticulated specimens mostly, and part of me feels this is more of a preservation issue than anything. The guy I got my abrasive from also included paint I
  6. Hello all This fossil fish is from an old collection. I think it might be Paraelops sp. from the Santana formation in Brazil, but I'm not certain. I'm also not entirely sure if it's completely original. Anyone who has an idea what species this is, what location it comes from and most importantly, is it real? Thanks in advance

    Fossil Xiphactinus?

    I know this isn't my find or my video, but I'm following this guy on the Youtube and he found Interesting fossil fish in North Texas Creek today. I'm thinking Xiphactinus or Enochodus? Video at 20:47 and 27:37
  8. I did not know where to put this post so if the mods want to move it, fine with me. Anyways, Ive got lots of fossil fish slabs I will be adding to my office walls this summer. I realized a couple of months ago that I needed more French Cleat material to do that. Like always I wasted a bunch of time trying to find exactly what I wanted on the common shopping sites. I did find one that could do the job but the 48 inch cleat material I found was waaaaaaaaaay too exspensive so I went surfing the net. I found the perfect cleat material I wanted and if I bought 10 45 inch pieces, (you can cu
  9. Just recently added a really cool specimen to our Leeward Community College Natural History Exhibit. It is a Priscacarid from the GRF with 4 anal spines and 11 dorsal spines. The specimen is just shy of 8 inches and very well prepared. I have emailed Lance Grande, the author of "The Lost World of Fossil Lake" for his opinion on this specimen and is awaiting his reply. Has anyone seen or know of other specimens similar to this? Your feedback is greatly appreciated. Thank you very much.

    Knightia eocaena - 18 inch layer.

    From the album: Fossildude's Purchased/Gift Fossils

    Another bargain from our favorite auction site. I didn't have any fish from the 18 inch layer, and the price was right. It is also exceptionally preserved, with all fins present. Knightia eocaena Green River Formation, Eocene. Wyoming. Fish is 4 inches (10 cm) in length.

    Who can help ?

    Dear all, Let me briefly introduce myself; My name is Marc, living in the south of the Netherlands, i'm 52 (not yet a fossil), I'm a chemical engineer working 5 days a week.... I'm new to fossil collecting; I'm a mineral collector but I recently purchased a collection of minerals among which some fossils. Most of them where labeled, except a few. I've attached a fossil fish and I hope anybody can help me with the determination. The label said "Fossil Fish, Brazil". That's all…... The size is approximately 15" (40 cm). Google search didn't h

    Santana formation fish

    Hello all Today this fish came in my mailbox together with a specimen of Rhacolepis buccalis. This fish does not seem to be of the same species, but the skull, fins and tail are in bad shape or even absent. Most of the 'skin' is gone, uncovering some of the bones beneath. I know this will make it hard to ID, but maybe one of the fish experts can help me out. It's from the Cretaceous Santana formation of Brazil and it's about 21 cm long. Thanks in advance.

    Fossil Fish ID Help

    The seller labels this as a diplomystus from green river but I don't think it is. The fins look wrong to me. What do you guys think?

    Fossil fish id

    I recently bought this fossil fish at a shop. I don't know where it comes from, how old it is, or what type of fish it is. The guy that worked at the shop told me it might have came from Brazil, but he wasn't sure. The fossil itself appears to be in a clay/sandstone-like concreation.
  17. Hello everyone, and happy holidays! I recieved this fossil fish (single fish split down the middle, so it's a mirror of itself). I'm looking to make a display case for it and I was looking for some help. I have a piece of plexiglass I want to use for the cover, and originally I was going to just build a wood case that holds the hinged box the fish is currently in, with a slot on top where the plexiglass could be slid in place. But now I'm not too sure, as I've seen some medal standoffs that can be used to hold up a piece of plexiglass over it, but then the sides would be open. I was hoping som

    Totoket Mountain

    Anyone ever been up to Totoket Mountain/ Bluff Head? I am considering going there sometime this summer. Any stories or advice would be greatly appreciated. Also what gear to bring would be helpful. If anyone plans on collecting soon then good luck and have a nice day.
  20. I just acquired a GRF fish plate with a Knightia, two Diplomystus, and an interesting ventrally compressed (?) fish. Any help with identifying this fish would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
  21. I have recently bought a fossil fish prep kit,tried to do it and have done for 5 hours,however randomly a small piece falls off and Ive gone as slow as possible is there anything i could do to help?
  22. Hello I'm a newbie fossil collector (and newly active member) who happens to several interesting fossils for a decent price from our favorite auctions sites 1st is are Knightia. The seller claims that they are not restored or enhanced 2nd set are 4 Spinosaurus teeth. The seller claims that cracks have been repaired, but no restoration or composition has been made (Pictures 2-9 of teeth in pairs) 3rd is a Lycoptera which the seller claims is not restored or enhanced 4th are plates of Elrathia Trilobites from Wheeler Formation 5th are Fossil Ferns from Llewellyn Formation 6th is a
  23. Well,, it was just a couple of weeks ago when I was out on a fishing trip to the Green River Formation. We were invited back to the almost unknown 'Phareodus' layers!!! Very tuff layers for sure. We had to use special chisles for these layers along with the normal thin shims used for the 18 inch layers. We didnt end up with very many Phare's, only 2 but the boys did get some purty good B-Grade Phare's!!! What we did find was quite a few small diplo's and small Mio's in some very very nice high quality preservation. The one thing was,,, just how many small good preservation Mio's does
  24. Went to my property the other day to pick up our camping trailer and couldn't help but go through a couple more boxes in my fossil shed. Found these in a tote with a bunch of Scotia Bluff material. Not sure why they were in that box but made for a nice surprize. Here's the thing, I can not remember the name of these fish, the formation or the age. Nothin. All I know is that I got them from a chinese dealer long ago in Tucson. Any help is appreciated. thank you and I got more in the garage. RB
  25. I am wondering why Lake Gosiute has been closed off to the public. It is the only part of fossil lake that has catfish and I really want to try and find one, instead of paying thousands of dollars for one. I have heard it was bought by a company, but I was still wondering if they would let a small private team dig or if they would sell any of the fossils. Thanks for any help!
