  1. 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

    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

    My Collection

    Hi everyone on Fossil Forum, I am pretty new to fossil collection but I have decided to post what I have currently collected and will continue to update this page with new fossils that I acquire over time. I am now looking to acquire rarer teeth now! Details of Specimen: Triceratops Tooth Hell Creek Formation, Carter County, Montana Late Cretaceous Period (65 Million Years Old) Measurements: 1.5 inches long x 3/4 inch wide x5/8 inch thick Weight: 8.9 Grams No restoration at all. all natural specimen. I love the way this looks and its huge!
  4. I have decided to start a thread showing pieces from my collection. I usually post in the "mailbox score" thread, but have found that my additions get lost in the volume of postings in the thread. So my collection will be in my own thread.
  5. David Attenborough visited this once and I decided to go there just for that. Some of them are reconstructions and some of them are real. Ofcourse I was not allowed to look at real ones in storage, any paleontologists here from Baden Würrtemburg ( maybe @Ludwigia) can tell. Has a geological mapping of the German state around Rhine river.

    Your "wish list"

    What is your "wish list"? My wish list, i think is this: 1) Morrison fm Sauropod tooth 2) Acrocanthosaurus (I know that is very, very rare and i will never get one) 3) Troodon tooth 4) Suchomimus 5) Ceratosaur tooth 6) Morrison theropod 7) Dimetrodon tooth 8) Tyrannosaurid tooth 9) Acheroraptor 10) Pliosaur tooth I write only about dinosaurs, reptiles and synapsid because if i will add more clade, is very hard to make the list.
  7. Anyone know if the fossil dealer Bernard Stürtz (1845-1928) from Bonn, Germany had a fossil catalogue.

    Real or fake?

    Do any of you know if is real or not? I only know that they should are from whaioming “diplomistus, knoghtia and myoplosus” from the eocene epoch. That’s right? Thank you!!!!

    Foraminifera ID

    Hello! Help please to identify. Ukraine, Middle Miocene. Size ~ 6 mm. Thanks in advance!
  10. So finally getting around to posting my finds from my last trip 2 weeks ago. All of this comes from a 12 foot by 8 foot section of gravel, which is… pretty mind blowing to me. To start off the finds… Tortoise! I grabbed 1 chunk of shell - there were multiple others that were equally as big and I just didn’t have the room for all of them. Found 30 tortoise spurs and 2 claws as well: (Also included with the claws are an earbone and a deer distal phalanx/claw core) Next up… 9 Glyptodon osteoderms, including 1 spike osteoderm and 2 juvenile osteoderms:
  11. Hello all, Me and my friend would like to start practicing chemical preparation. Neither of us have done that before. We were mainly wondering what types of commercially available fossils are fit to practice this on? I know of limestone fossils like Keichousaurus, but that seems quite expensive for a first try. Neither of us lives close enough to a fossil location to reallistically obtain this way. So I tried to make a list of items that are not too hard to find unprepared. My friend has quite a bit of experience with working with chemicals, but doesn't know what chemicals would wo
  12. I found this strange fossil near Sand Springs on the Arkansas River of Northeast Oklahoma back in 2013 or so. I was told by multiple sources that it appears to be a chunk of seabed. Is this from the Devonian/Mississippian period? Can anyone ID any of the fossils on this piece? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks! I have a few other specimens I would love to identify as well! :)) ~Noah Benzing
  13. Hello fellow Trilobite fossils collectors. I have 2 specimens in my collection that were specifically prepared 'with microfossils'. So, instead of blasting away everything around the specimen, the preparator took extra efforts to maintain the surrounding 'environment' that the specimen was contained within. I really like this preparation style, and am wondering why the Trilobite fossils I see for sale on the web, etc are much more likely to be just the specimen itself carved out of the matrix and leaving only scrapes, scratches or smoothed rock nearby. Does anyone know why there aren't mor
  14. Traditionally in early January one reviews where one is, and sets goals for the coming year. So as the topic says: What are your palaeontological goals for 2023 ? For myself: I don't get out collecting much. So I would like to go into the field at least once this year. Also, I seem to have added Ammonites to the list of fossils I concentrate on. I want to add a few more, and of course do the research surrounding that.

    Shark teeth

    I have numbered UNDER the teeth if that helps me to identify them.

    Ray tooth plate ID

    Hello! Is it possible to exclude Myliobatis and maybe possible to identify genus? Length: ~ 1 cm. Age: Eocene, Ypresian. Location: Western Ukraine. Thanks!
  18. Dear Fellow Forum Goers, Have you found that over your lifetime, the fossil collecting grounds you've so frequently enjoyed and have come to love have degraded? Lately, I have been ruminating on the fact that the popularization of fossil collecting in New Jersey (my local collecting ground) has brought many wonderful things (many new collectors, support for paleontology across the board, and - maybe - additional funding to paleontology communities, institutions, and organizations), but has also engendered / worsened a host of deleterious processes, such as the picking-o

    Shark tooth identifying

    I have numbered under the teeth of that helps me to identify them.
  24. So the other night I was at home rowing and watching YouTube videos on fossils and I came across one from a young lady from England- I do not recall her name and am not sure if she is on the forum. I have seen several of her videos and enjoyed them, but this one really caught my attention. She was cleaning fossils that she had collected and she was using a mop bucket. As I was watching this, I thought to myself, what a great idea she has. After I was done rowing, I searched the internet to see if I could find this great new piece of equipment for cleaning the fossils that I collect.
