  1. Hi everyone! I'm new to fossil hunting and I found a few interesting rocks underneath Sea Cliff Bridge near Wollongong in Australia. There was a lot of coal in the area for context. I will attach some photos of the rocks I found, I'm particularly interested in the small white (quartz??) lines intersecting the black part of the stone. Any help would be hugely appreciated! Thanks
  2. Hey hi Everybody! I like the unusual teeth. And posterior teeth are some of the most unusual in any given species. So I thought I would start a thread for posterior shark teeth of any species. To kick it off..... Here are some from Shark tooth hill (round mountain silt). I think these are Carcharodon hastalis and (?) planus. The smallest one is just under 1/8th inch wide. So, if You have any posterior shark teeth - please post pictures here. Thanks, Tony
  3. Tales From the Shale

    Alabama Graptolites

    Here are some of the fossils I acquired in a shale roadcut I was told about thanks to @prem. These are ordovician in age, and I have to say it was difficult to collect them due to the fragility of the surrounding material. Ive identified most of my finds, however there were these unusual pill like outlines I wasn't familar with.
  4. Hello everybody, I have question that I always wanted to ask,but it was so dumb that I always avoided asking it. However,curiosity was stronger and I finally decided to go for it and ask it. OK,I would like to know how can someone who collects fossils learn more about fossils he got and find out more about that particular specimen? Is there any sort of ''study'' that can be done with some fossilized specimen like etc. seashell in matrix that would provide more information about that specimen as well as specie? I would like to know more about fossils I have,but t
  5. I got a box of micro matrix from PaleoCris - Bone Valley Formation from Florida and I am STUNNED by the beautiful colors and preservation! I knew Bone Valley stuff was good...but wow. And he threw in some "extra" fossils of a nice big echinoid and a claw of some thing...maybe extinct armadillo. I still havn't gone through all the matrix, but wanted to show ya'll some of the nice stuff: All are around 1/8 inch - 1/4 inch This crazy Fish tooth plate - Labrodon sp. I think this is Baracuda? I love the little ray teeth Rhynchobatus. Sadly, this one
  6. I'm starting to get into mechanical prep seeing as with the quarantine I have extra time on my hand. My equipment arrived before my projects did so I've been practicing on this invert I had on hand. I believe this is a gastropod? Or is it a bivalve? I can never keep them straight in my head. Anyways, I forgot to take a before picture so I apologize for this awful photo as it was the only one I had: And this is it currently: Obviously not done yet, needs some more work and then some serious clean up to make it look nice but I'm thinking to put it aside for a

    Delintment Lake fossils

    Hello, folks, I'm looking for specific directions, such as coordinates, road numbers, anything to direct me to the collecting site near Delintment lake in Oregon. Please help.
  8. Hi. I often go on here and look at the amazing dinosaur fossil collections many of you have. I live in Wisconsin so I don’t have the opportunity to search for them so I search online but I’m wondering if there are more places to find dinosaur fossils for sale than online sites. Im wondering if anyone has any input on this. If this is a question that goes against forum rules just let me know it can’t be answered here. I don’t want to break any rules. Thanks!
  9. Hi Everyone, Hoping to have some help finding out what these are (appreciate that some these will probably just be some random rock or stone). First picture is just the results from a couple of times going around the rocks or beach at the Warren, Folkestone which I don’t think is terrible for not really knowing what we are doing! The up close ones i’m not entirely sure what they are if anything at all! Also for reference thats a 2p coin don’t think that its obvious to see. any thing else can help you help me let me know and tha
  10. Hello! New user here... My boyfriend and I have been doing some exploring around the badlands here in Alberta, and lately we've been mostly wandering around north of Tolman. We've found a few cool fossils, but we're both having a hard time putting all our research into practice. Trying to learn the different formations and identifying the coal seams, but not having much luck. I've read some of the documents that describe the scollard formation, but when I'm climbing the hills I honestly have no idea what I'm looking at. Is there anyone in Alberta that frequents these areas that can offer

    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
  12. 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
  13. FINALLY getting around to posting about my first time ever fossil hunting in Oklahoma! Went on an extended weekend with the Paleontological Society of Austin to a variety of locales in Central OK - places I have heard about, read about and dreamed about going! I finally made it! And it was so very worth the drive, even if I did end up with a stupid cold the last two days (the drive home was a little....weird. Cold "fugue" makes for interesting driving- I really don't remember much of it, which is either good or bad....) But the FOSSILS! I've never hunted the Ordovician and Siluria
  14. Hello hello all. My kids have come of age when it comes to being able to understand things and have become hooked on fossils. It's pretty tough to find places where I'm from theres limited information on sites / locations. We dont really have any fossil clubs or official sites etc, everything we've ever found are shells. Fossils online seem to all be prepared. Can anyone point me in the direction of unprepared fossils that the kids can work on, they don't have to be anything fancy. Thanks in advance!
  15. So decided to try one last hunt on the river before things got too high, and cause I was hoping to find a complete Meg in the river as I still haven’t. Ended up getting caught in a massive downpour for the second half of the hunt, which has cued me into bringing a tarp next time so I can see what I’m actually doing. Trip was relatively uneventful with finds, though I found a couple neat things I wanted to share! So first up is this very tiny Glyptodon scute I found. Not quite a full piece, but still very pretty and neat: Next is a common bull
  16. Any of these fossils?

    What is your guess on these?

    Fossil or Xenolith?

    Look I found a thing! Usually when I see a rock embedded in another rock I think fossil... however IF this is a fossil I have no idea what it would be. So at this point im thinking maybe its another Xenolith. What are your thoughts? For anyone interested, this was found near Vancouver Canadia.
  19. Hi all, I have just had a read through all the information for new members when submitting new fossils for identification. I will do my best to try and cover all the items listed and hope it helps anyone to identify my 2 fossils. The two pictures are indeed high-res images so that’s a good start. However, first off, I purchased these two fossils from a large estate sale. There were a number of other fossils available but these two were the most majestic which caught my eye as they looked quite bizarre and unusual to me. They are mounted on perspex. Sad

    Alaska Penninsula Trip

    I made two trips this spring down the Alaska Penninsula and will share some photos from these trips. The first are from the Pacific side taken last week of petrified wood from volcanic ash coverage, fossilization and subsequent exposure. Currently the biggest “trees” there are stunted alders with a tall one reaching 8’ in height. Brown bears use the beaches for travel and while searching for food. Their trails are unique in that they will step in the same spot and leave foot sized depressions as well as compact paths. A partial view of Aniak

    Fossil shark teeth?

    Tidying up my old shell collection, I found shark teeth that were given to me as a child. I have no indication of where they came from, but they look similar to fossil shark teeth I have come across on some sites. Could someone be able to help me identify them? This reminds me of a Squalicorax teeth This other could be Rhombodus binkhorsti? And those are the other two Thanks every one for the help!
  22. Hello! I have a Drotops armartus fossil and some of the spines are broken off which glue would work best? Thank all of you for any help!
  23. Hello! I saw this Dicaranarus monstrosus fossil online, I want to know if it's authentic or not. Thank you for any help!
