Savscience posted a topic in Fossil IDFound on a riverbank in southeast GA
BasilTheBulgarSlayer posted a topic in Fossil IDHello everyone. I found this molar when searching a site recently, and I am not sure what it is from. I don't know my teeth very well, but I suspect it came from a deer? Maybe a worn molar? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
Savannah River finds
Hopeful posted a topic in Fossil IDFound two unusual rocks on the islands of the Savannah River in Georgia. I'm hoping at least the first is a fossil but I'd not be surprised if both were just dark rocks :-) Thoughts? Sorry for only 2 photos but this was what I could post under the 3.95MB limit. Thanks!
Unknow fossil in Northwest Georgia
TL Michael posted a topic in Fossil IDHi all and thank you for allow me to become a new member. I live in a fossil rich environment snuggled in the ridges of Pigeon Mountain, located in Chickamauga, GA. Many of the fossils I run across can be narrowed down to plants or shells but this one has me a bit perplexed. Maybe it is a plant but I'm humbly asking for a professional's opinion. Any input is truly welcome. Cheers..
Springfield Georgia: Scouting Help?
MeargleSchmeargl posted a topic in General Fossil DiscussionA while back on one of the occasions my friend Barrett and I went to the Conasauga creepy crawlies, a man who arrived some time later with his daughter to hunt them recommended we check out a place called Springfield. A rough map of the area in and around Springfield says that there are pleistocene deposits in the general area. Anyone know of a good place to learn more, or a potential spot to hit?

4th expedition for the Conasauga Trilos
MeargleSchmeargl posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsIf you beautiful people recall, I said I'd be heading back to our favourite GA trilo site on the Conasauga river for my Convergence media project. Well, here's the run down: When we got to the small parking space that eternally marks the entrance to the site, we checked the river as we always do. To our fortune, the Conasauga was low Saturday, giving us more leg room to hunt. It was definitely the right condition to hunt! Not too hot or cold, and the river was nice and low. After doing some filming shots for the DEC (the school new
Meglodon tooth origin?
Hardman.digs posted a topic in Fossil IDHello all! Hope everyone's years are off to a happy and huntfull start! Well I started the year off spending some Christmas cash on a meglodon tooth. (Having only found fragments myself) any way I was wondering if there is a tie between locations and colors of teeth. I found this beauty at an pass-proof price. It is a beautiful orange/red. At 5 inches almost exactly. The previous owner says it came from the st. Mary's river area of Georgia. (Pretty close to where I was when I got it). I am just curious if this is a common color for other areas or even in the st Mary's area? Thank you all for
Jekyll Island trips before Summerville
MeargleSchmeargl posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsNext week I'm headed for Summerville to hunt for megs, and this week at Jekyll I'm getting a small taste of the toothy joy that is hunting at Summerville! This is the first of possibly multiple trips to the shark tooth beach here on Jekyll Island. Got some pretty nice things, too! Trip 1 Family photo;

Georgia trilo site: Age, anyone?
MeargleSchmeargl posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsSo I just recently found a new trilobite site in GA only an hour and a half drive away from where I live. I plan on going there this weekend (tomorrow), but I do not know the exact age. I have currently been unsuccessful at finding a reliable geological map so far. Anyone have an idea on the age? Thanks!
Found in South Georgia. Very smooth on one side and one end. Very heavy for its size. I thought it was petrified wood at first but someone told me it looked like a piece of tusk so I thought I would post some pics. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
