  1. Is it worth cleaning these up at all? *Beginner with Fossil prep- I have a dremmel
  2. A cool piece frozen in time from the day they were buried together. Also a decent size Inoceramus shell for the area and always fun to find an ammonite. This piece is from Boulder, Colorado.
  3. Hi everyone! Last week we went on a weekend trip with our fossil club the BVP to go on a fossil hunt to the jurassic clay cliffs "Falaises de Vaches Noires" between Houlgate & Villers-Sur-Mer in Normandy, France. https://www.paleontica.org/locations/fossil/68 The famous cliffs of Vaches Noires date back to the Jurassic period, and span both the Callovian & Oxfordian stages (166 - 157 mya) and the Cretaceous period spanning the Cenomanian (100 - 94 mya). Back in the jurassic this area was a rich marine environment and fossils that can be found here are man
  4. I was really enjoying hiking around different spots in Boulder, Colorado and eventually I came across a beautiful outcrop of the Niobrara Formation. I thought it was so cool that there were shell imprints in the rock and nobody had ever taught me about the Geology of the area and it was really fascinating to see for myself that the whole area was once under the sea. I stumbled upon a massive Inoceramus and I knew I had to haul it home. Not bad at all for a first fossil hunt I don't think I ever found a Inoceramus as impressive as my first. Begginers luck.

    Fossil hunting trip!

    Me and my family just finished up our first fossil hunt! We are still at the ranch, but are leaving in the morning. We all are sad to have to leave the ranch. We all had fun exploring and doing different thimgs, (though some of us a lot less than others) and really enjoyed talking with, Rick and, Jean. They are really nice people. And it is a really nice place to stay. Unfortunately the guide, and everyone else cancled, so we were fossil hunting alone. WE left home at 2 AM on saturday, and arrived in Omaha, NE around 11 AM. We stopped in Omaha to visit with some fa
  6. My wife and I recently went looking for fossils, both outside of Drumheller and on the banks of the Red Deer river in Alberta, Canada. The idea of finding a fossil has always been so exciting to me, but until recently I thought it was something only palaeontologists could do. When we found out that we were allowed to surface collect we decided to give it a go! Anyways... Here are some of the things we found. I am not confident that any of them are fossils, but I would be so stoked if at least one of them was. - The first three images are of a rock we found on the banks
  7. Hey everyone! Me and my family are thinking about taking a trip to the White River Formation. But we were wondering what some good places are to go fossil hunting? Thank you, -Micah

    D.C. Area Fossils?

    I am looking for DC area fossil sites. I am used to the south shore of Lake Michigan. I recently moved to DC and would like to collect some fossils near here. Planning to rent a car this weekend for the occasion, willing to drive a couple hours. Any recommendations? thanks in advance!
  9. Yesterday I scouted Calvert Cliffs Beach to see if my friends would be able to join me on a fossil hunt there. As this was only my third lifetime hunt, I'd only been to Matoaka prior, and wanted to see if the path to the Calvert Beach was accessible enough for a friend using a cane and someone more out of shape than I am. That said, I'm not fit myself, so the 3.6-mile hike to and from the beach was not easy. However, it was gorgeous! As many people will tell you online, the cliffs at Calvert Beach are not legally accessible; the state park service has closed off access to them due
  10. Hi All! Any advice on getting permission to explore a quarry? I’m trying to plan out some trips into the field for later in the fall or next spring if I can get some time off. My top pick by distance and what I’ve heard people talk about here are the Geer Road/Deep Springs Road Quarry. Does anyone know who could be contacted about permission to look for critters for an afternoon there? Thanks! Noah

    Calvert Beachcombing Tips?

    Hi guys! So I'm planning to go back to one of the Calvert County beaches to try my luck again- I haven't had any success with finding teeth bigger than about a quarter inch and I'm hoping to find something a little bigger next time. My current technique is to dig up sand from the water and sift through it super carefully- should I switch it up and try something different to find big teeth? If so, does anyone have any recommendations for how to find them? And, final question, which beaches are good for finding larger specimens? I know Purse and Matoaka are good for quantity but I don't know whi
  12. So I was at Arkona with my family recently, and at the flooded pit my mom found this piece It's about an inch long It's the hole(?) that I'm confused about. The only thing I can think of is some type of coral, but I really have no idea.

We had about 20 participants and it was a whirlwind hunt they all were enjoying as I left them still hunti

    A First for Us

    Carter and I got to do some fossil hunting in the late Cretaceous Chico Formation for the first time last weekend. We had previously not had opportunities to poke around our local formation so we were pretty excited. My kids grew up hiking trails, restoring habitat and rescuing wildlife. They went to work with me frequently and helped out with field work for school. Carter, in particular, really enjoyed the work and the time outside so we were both excited to get outside and do something new. We tried to different locations and our exploration consisted of light surfa
  15. With lockdowns strangling basically everything right now, one question floats around in my noggin: is there anything on whether travelling for remote recreational activities is alright? I say this as obviously nobody's going (or should be going) to the big name sites where there's probably other visitors to contend with, but what about the lesser known sites where you can be fairly confident there won't be anyone physically exposed to you for miles in any direction? Is there anything in the books about it? I assume the answer is just stay put regardless, but I am indeed curious if there is any

    Tooth?

    So I stumbled upon this tooth I think when I went out fossil hunting. Found in northern texas. Can anybody ID or confirm this?

    Coral crazy

    Today I was pretty stressed out, but it was also my day off work so I figured what better to do than go out for a hike. Usually around this time of the year Truman Lake's water level drops, and more spots are accessible to hunt for treasures or to journey and site see. I wasn't looking for fossils but instead I was looking for fishing lures, (You'd be amazed how many you can find when the water drops) but I always keep an eye out for fossils as well. I ended up finding a nice little exposure that is usually underwater, and boy it was worth the search. It was about a hour and a half walk to whe
  18. Hey, all! I would like to hunt for fossils in or near Columbus, Ohio. Do any of you have any recommendations for locations to hunt or resources that I could consult? Thank you!
  19. Hello fine fossil folks, I will be in Toronto this weekend (Friday night, Saturday night, leave Sunday) with my wife Visiting her aunts, uncles and cousins for a baby shower. Now that we are married they are my family too!! We go to Toronto pretty often now so I figured I’d better get used to some of the local geology/paleontology. Ive seen a few people post some nice Toronto trips. Anyone interested in getting out in the field this weekend? I don’t know when but I imagine my wife will tell me I can get lost for a few hours fossil hunting if I ask nicely .
  20. Hey all, I am new here and to the hobby in general so I apologize if I am not following some etiquettes that I don't know about. I just wanted to share my experience on the Withlacoochee river so that maybe someone else can learn from it. My buddy and I drove up to the Florida Georgia line to visit the Withlacoochee river and hunt for some agatized coral. I am a senior geology student and none of my fellow classmates or professors I've asked know how or where to fossil hunt for whatever reason so I am learning this all myself. Anyways, I brought a couple kayaks and we got on
  21. Hi all, This weekend, after the long, boring and annoying winter months (it's always mildly cold, but very windy and rainy in the Netherlands in winter... horrible fossil hunting conditions) spring finally let out the tip of its nose, with a nice sun, blue sky and decent temperature. About time! We all know what this means... time to do some fossil-hunting! So on Sunday morning I woke up, prepared my fossil hunting equipment (mainly bags and boxes; no tools needed for this beach), made myself a lunch, and set out at 13:00 to the bus. The bus ride to Kijkduin takes me a
