  1. I convinced my friend in England to send me some matrix from the Oxford Clay site I have the pleasure of hunting a few years ago. I really wanted to see what I could find in the micro stuff! He packed up a "Fosters sized package of Pay Dirt" as he referred to it and I got it in the mail a couple of weeks ago. It didn't take me long to go through it because I just couldn't stop! So many beautiful tiny fossils!! Star Crinoids, Belemnites, Ammonites, all of those I expected to find. What I was surprised to find was lots of tiny crab claws, couple of shark teeth and some possible Starfish ossicles

    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

    Jaw Kem Kem

    Hi! I got this type of jaw from the Kem Kem Beds of Morocco. I was thinking some type of fish? Hope somebody has an idea of what it can be. Regards
  4. I started a post about my first Pleistocene Texas Coast finds and was going to add to that anything I found over the subsequent week I was at the Texas Coast in Port Aransas, but I decided they needed their OWN post because wow...I had some great finds over the next 5 days of beachcombing! I had heard there could be shark teeth found in this particular spot, so that was really what I was looing for, but quickly realized, the bone material was surprisingly abundant! As I mentioned previously, I have tried finding fossils in various spots on the Texas Coast but had not had any luck but apparen
  5. Hey-O! This mid western fossil hound is heading to Punta Cana for a vacay with the wife but the fossil hunter in me needs more to do than let the ladies gaze at my miraculous beer belly! haha I'm doing research into the area we are staying and I'm wondering if this would be a good area to sift for fossilized teeth or bone. I know PC is guarded by a reef, so modern shark teeth are unlikely but I'm not sure where this land mass sat throughout our eras. Any advise would be appreciated. I know the Dominican Republic is know for their Amber mines (which would be cool). Any

    The West Texas Road Trip 2022

    Hello gang! As I attempted for 2021, and did in 2019, it’s time to start planning a serious excursion. 2021 was a disaster due to health, though I did take a road trip to San Diego for some treatments, and made a few a stops along the way. This year I will be traveling the entire month of July to get biological samples for my employer, fossils for me, and lots of other adventures. Starting the first week of July 2022, I’ll be heading south from Omaha to Fort Worth, with fossil and camping stops along the way for the first week and a half in various sta

    Ammonite Drawing

    Has anyone got any advice on drawing ammonites accurately? It is often the ribs which identify an ammonite, so they are very important to get right and while I my observational skills are fairly good, I find it hard to believe people like Ernst Haeckle relied purely on observation. I don't strive for Haeckle's realism as I draw in a more sketchy manner, but I do strive for accuracy all the same. Is there a sort of formula to plot ammonite ribs? Thanks!

    What is it, tooth, claw?

    Hello! Help, please, to identify fossil. Height - slightly less than 1,5 mm. Age - mot probably Middle Miocene. Location - Western Ukraine. Thanks in advance!
  9. Hello everyone, and welcome back to another trip report! Last week, me and my family went to France once again, but this time to northern France, near Cap Blanc Nez. Cap Blanc Nez is a well-known fossil-hunting site for its ammonites and other fossils. It is located quite near the coast of England, and if the weather's clear you can see the cliffs of Dover very clearly. Day 1: it's a start The first fossil trip was rather disappointing. We walked down the stairway to the beach and headed directly to Grand Blanc Nez, the main landmark in the area. We started search
  10. I went hunting again today and need some help identifying. Muskogee, Ok near the Arkansas river.
  11. 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

    Thrilling Threshers!

    The genus Alopias, commonly known as the Thresher Shark, has been around for millions of years. These sharks use their abnormally long, whip-like caudal fin to stun their prey. This fin can grow to become more than half the length of shark's entire body. It is a strange and fascinating creature, and has been one of my favorite sharks ever since I was a little boy. Today, we fossil hunters can find the fossilized teeth of Thresher Sharks. They are typically rather small, and relatively uncommon. They look really cool in my opinion, and they're among my favorite types of shark teeth that are on
  13. 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
  14. After a one year off for Covid the Tucson show will open the last week of January. Here is a link that provides you info to the +40 venues. Arizona still has high daily Covid 19 cases, so some venues or dealer rooms may require you to wear a mask, be safe. https://xpopress.com/showcase/profile/1/tucson-gem-mineral-fossil-showcase Lots of major changes will occur this year with the location of fossil dealers. The Arizona Mineral & Fossil Show which occupied the Tucson City Center Hotel was moving to the El Conquistador Resort but their web site says this show

    Texas Coast Pleistocene

    I am on the Texas Coast for the second time this year!! My husband and I stayed in the Tarpon Inn in Port Aransas for New Years, just for a couple of days and now, this week, my parents rented a house in Port A so I am here for the Second time in 2022....more beach time in the last two weeks than the last two years!! I love the Texas Coast in the winter. Right now it is 74 degrees and I'm hanging out under the tiki cabana writing this. Tomorrow will be cool and possibly rainy, so I am getting my fossil (and shell) hunting in today. So, as for the fossils. They may not seem like m
  17. Hi all! Im not in America and I think the annual Tucson show is coming up soon. For those who are not able to travel and would still like to maybe have the opportunity to purchase something from there, would like to ask if there is a way for those international potential buyers to do so? As I know they most likely have a lot of variety that some of us just cant get ahold of lol. I know that other communities where an individual may want to get e.g.: a sneaker thats about to 'drop', but since they can't be there in person, they are able to still get a hold of it via

    Is this fossilized bone?

    This was found in a cave in Vance. It has a mineral growth on it that glows a neon yellow color under a uv light. The camera makes it appear green but here are some photos. Tell me what y'all think.
  19. Hi everyone. just wanted to ask on here regarding the popular auction/ selling site. Im currently looking for more dino material to add to my small collection. However, after browsing through "reliable/ famous" online fossil websites/ retailers, it seems that those websites either: only supply common fossils or, when they do have rarer pieces, they are priced very high and are sold very quickly. So I tried the popular auction site. Looking at the profiles of the sellers on that auction site, most of those sellers dig their own fossils and sell those fossils themselves without a "m
  20. This is my first of what I hope to be many posts on TFF, so any suggestions on how to adhere to proper etiquette or improve the reader’s experience is welcome. In 2020, I found my first few teeth while hiking the Alberta badlands. In hind sight, they weren’t all that impressive. But at the time, I was ecstatic! Needless to say, I was hooked. During the winter that followed, I found myself itching to get back out to see what else I could find. In an attempt to scratch my itch, I began looking for online forums and discovered r/fossilid on Reddit which then led me here to TFF

    Fossil Storage Drawers

    Hi I’ve recently acquired this set of old draughtsman drawers which I intend to use for fossil storage. The drawers were used for storing A0 paper and they originate from an old paper mill and are dated to the early 1900s. Each drawer is about 70 mm deep. Just need to fill them now Nick
  22. Merry Christmas to all you lovely people of the great Fossil Forum community . Please show us your Christmas fossils and other paraphernalia related gifts. I have not open my presents yet but got my fingers crossed . all the best to you and yours the Ricos .
  23. Looking for a well know site, believe it's a road cut, in Maysville KY. The site cuts through several formations of the Cincinnatian. From bottom to top, it exposes the Kope, Fairview and Bellevue Formations. Any idea where this is exactly (I.e road intersection, etc?)
  24. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 26, 2022 AT 8 AM – 3 PM (and Sunday the 27th) Gabe Shuler (Cypress Gardens) and Robert Ireland reached out to me and said the Fossil Show is a green light. It is a two-day event starting Saturday February 26th, 2022. -------------------------------------- gabe.shuler@berkeleycountysc.gov (843) 553-0515 -------------------------------------- Recommendations: If you have arrangements to be a vendor or set-up a display you should arrive around 8am. The park hours will be from 9am-5pm but the show will most likely be scheduled to run until around 3pm. --------
