  1. Hello everyone, I found this forum While searching for locations for fossil hunting. I would be very thankful if any local fossil hunters could share some locations for a beginner. I’ve always been interested in fossils and geology and I’d like to make a fun hobby with it if possible. Thank you!!!!! reply to this post or shoot me a private email!!!!! Please thanks again!!!
  2. Good morning, and welcome to another Fossil Friday! Its been a while, but I have a new video up, this one is aimed at the beginners. Offering up some advice on where and how to begin finding their own fossil collecting sites. Now, I would like some feedback on this from anyone already familiar with finding their sites. I am already planning a re-make because I can't believe I forgot to include using geologic maps in my tips! If I forgot that, I'm sure there are some other great tips that would make a great inclusion when I redo this in the future.
  3. Hi All, It's been awhile since I've posted here, but I've kept up my interest in fossils! I'm currently working on finishing my Ph.D. up here in Ohio (wildlife conservation) but am shifting my focus to outreach and education endeavors mostly. I currently host a wildlife-oriented YouTube channel but am interested in doing a series on fossils and paleontology in the future (either on our current channel or on a different one). My idea is to do a six-part series on the Paleozoic that starts with the Cambrian and works through the Permian. In each episode, I would visit a well-known (i
  4. Hello all! I am trying to find some new areas around my place. So far there is not a single reference for fossils in this place, so I need somehow to choose some spots to prospect. There are some common rules like road cuttings, rivers & creeks that cut into the formations, abandoned quarries etc, all of which are beautifully presented in this post. However, I need to know how to take advantage of all information provided in a geological map. Which place would you check first for fossils? There are faults, borders between two geological ages etc.

    Is shark river open?

    Hi all, awhile ago I saw shark river had a sewer leaking into the stream and I was wondering if anyone has been there lately or could tell me if it’s open, there hasn’t been anything in the news about it since September and I’ve wanted to go there for a long time. TIA.
  6. My daughter and I are looking for new fossil-finding adventures in central and Northeast Texas. We have already been numerous times to Ladonia, Sherman and Mineral Wells. We also like to hunt for arrowheads!

    PA fossil sites

    Hello everyone! Thanks for taking a minute to read this. Heading over to Maryland this weekend for some fossil hunting. I was hoping to get some guidance on some spots in PA. Which we are planning on heading to on Tuesday (June 18th). Would like to know if there are any areas where we could find some plant fossils. I know from doing some research the areas may be limited. It's our first time collecting plant fossils so any tips would be appreciated as well! Thank you!

    North American paleoburrows?

    Many paleoburrows have been found in South America and are believed to have been excavated by ground sloths. That being the case has anybody heard of any of these paleoburrows in North America? I understand that a good number of ground sloth remain have been discovered in caves in North America. Is it possible that some of these caves are misidentified burrows? From what I can gather the majority of the paleoburrows in South America are found in hillsides close to water. Has anybody seen a site in North America that contained ground sloth remains and could be interpreted as one of these burro

    Trace Fossil sites

    Hey everyone I recently heard about a paper on the definition of "Lagerstätte" (see attached); and it did raise an interesting question - "Can a trace fossil site be called a Lagerstätte?" What do you guys think about this? -Christian On_the_definition_of_Lagerstatte.pdf

    Fossil sites in London area

    Hey all Next year I'll be beginning university, and I'll probably be in London, UK. Would some of you know of any fossil sites in the area around London? I'd be fine with anywhere less than an hour and a half by bus or train... Thanks for the help! -Christian

    Fossil Ridge, Colorado?

    The recent discussions about fossil hunting at Douglas Pass and Florissant, Colorado, caused me to call up Google Maps to see where they are. Lo and behold, as I was scrolling across the map, I came across a geographical feature near Gunnison called “Fossil Ridge.” Well,with a name like that I thought I should find out more about it. But an Internet search hasn’t helped much. So far all I’ve found out is that it is part of a wilderness area with hiking trails and that it is “a high, exposed ridge of Paleozoic carbonates that contain epeiric sea fossils.” But nothing more about the fossils
  12. I'm interested in fossil sites I can visit in or near the Southern Appalachians. I live in Hendersonville, NC. The Only one I know of is the Gray Fossil Site near Johnson City, Tenn. I'd especially like to know where I can find fossils to collect.

    Fossil Site Info

    Hello! So I just got my hands on an old (34-year old) fossil guide for Pennsylvania. I found a couple nearby and somewhat promising fossil sites, but I don't know if their accessible nowadays. Does anybody know the status of these sites: -Blue Mountain roadcut on PA 641 in Roxbury, Franklin County -The Lesh Borrow Pit a mile southwest of Newport, Perry County I'm also curious if more fossil sites have popped up around sputh central PA since the 80's, so any info on that would be much appreciated. Thanks
  14. Hi folks This year our two week annual holiday is to Bratislava, capital city of Slovakia. We will hopefully go for a couple of days to Vienna too. Anyone know of anywhere to dig? Also interested in fossil shops. I doubt I'll drive there but may hire a car for a day or so. Last year we went to Prague and I hooked up with a collector, hunter and retailer, a guy called Jìri. We went to a couple of his favourite places and found trilos, graptolites, bivalves and orthocones. It was a great experience. I need to find another Jìri! IMG_

    Albertan heteromorphs

    Dear all, As I said long ago, this year I might be going to Canada. However, most of the time will be spent in Alberta for a dinosaur dig with Prof. Philip Currie. This basically washes away my plans of going to Vancouver Island and find heteromorphs on the Comox Valley. So, as I would still like to find some heteromorph ammonites, I was wondering whether there would be any heteromorph ammonite sites in the vicinity of Dinosaur Provincial Park (of preference less than 2 hours away, by car). Thanks for any help, Christian
  16. My brother and I are travelling to Birmingham, Alabama on October 2-4. We may have a few hours on the 3rd, so I was wondering about any sites nearby. I would love to visit the Minkin Footprint site, but I guess its off limits outside of official field trips. Are there any other interesting places that are pretty well known and easy to get to?
  17. Hi everyone! This summer I will go for a week-long expedition to the chalk coastline of Møns Klint, in Denmark. I've already gathered some reference material (including Skrivekridtets fossiler, a Danish book on chalk fossils; Fossils of the Chalk; and several other books and articles). What I hope most to find during this field trip include the following: -Decapod crustacean remains -Echinoderms (regular echinoids, asteroids and crinoids especially) -Ammonites; especially baculitids and Acanthoscaphites tridens -Belemnites -Fish remains (osteichtyans and condrichtyans) And of course
  18. Hi everyone, in Summer I went to a Maastrichtian-age (~70 mya) Chalk coastline on the island of Møn in Denmark. My family and I recovered 13 partial belemnite rostra (I found 10 of them). Quite common, right? One of the rostra that I found was heavily worn, but within that poorly preserved rostra was a near-complete phragmocone. Tell me what you think about it! ********************************* This is the belemnite rostra. Note the Euro coin for scale
  19. Hey guys I found this website called fossilsites.com, and I'm sure many of you know about it already. Was wondering how recently it's been updated it ya'll know and how accurate the fossil locations in it are. Thanks! rachums107

    Cnn Article On 8 Us Fossil Sites

  21. We are attending the dig with the experts may 17th but will be in Hamburg for a couple of extra days collecting. Does anyone know the status of 18 mile creek? If that is still posted are there any other sites near Hamburg?
