  1. Hi, These were long lost fossils that I happened upon the other day. I collected them in 1981 somewhere north of Atlanta in Georgia. At the time, I thought they might be Trilobites from the Cambrian, but now am now I have no idea what they are or even if they are from the Cambrian. Sorry, I can't give a more definitive location, formation or time period. The rock is very soft, almost chalk-like. As I recall, they were in talus from outside a quarry. Any I.D. will be gratefully appreciated.

    new find ID help: Whale tooth?

    Hi all: excited to be a part of the group and get some help identifying some previous and future finds. Hoping for as much detail as possible on the enclosed tooth i found this year. I suspect some sort of whale tooth, maybe. Location: Jekyll Island, GA (shorline). Thank you all in advance! Jesse Brown
  3. My Aunt recently found this fossil vertabrae in the marsh/beach area in Brunswick GA. Can you help me identify what animal it came from? Thanks.
  4. Rockstar Chick

    Fossilized Tooth?

    Can anyone identify this? It was found on a dirt road in SE Georgia near the coast. Dredgings from the shipping channel are used to fortify dirt roads. I know it's difficult to do using pictures alone so I'll include as many clear shots as possible.
  5. Amanda Johnson

    Can anyone tell me what this might be.

    First of all I would like to thank yall for taking time to help me.

    Consauga Help

    I've been looking into northern Georgia for quite awhile now. After the closing of Tibbs, I've been trying to find other locations, I've found one other locality that was covered. My question is, is there any other locations that people have had luck at? I've tried Floyd county but I've only been coming up empty. Any information helps.
  7. Amanda Johnson

    Please help identify these

    I found these in a washout in a tree trunk on the Chattahoochee River in Georgia. I'm just curious if it's bones of some kind.
  8. Hi Found this large rock In middle Georgia. It has Holes in it that dont look natural to me but I could possibly be wrong. Just wondering if anyone has seen anything like this. Sorry the photos arent better. Where it was found a lot of artifacts are found because had Indians living here for 12,000 Years.
  9. From the very moment we wrapped up at that Conasauga Formation fossil hunt at the spot I'd never heard of before, I was itching to get back there. I guess that's what going for years without hunting half-billion year old bugs does to you. Well, this past Sunday I had my opportunity to get another bug hunt in. It's a good thing I brought my water boots with me, because the spot was quite a bit wetter than the previous time I had come, with some really large puddles at the foot of the hillside I'd get to work in. After a good while of splitting, I had myself

    Found on Tybee Island

    First time posting….so I apologize if I’m not following correct formatting. Not sure if this is anything, but was found on Tybee Island. Can anyone help with identifying it? Thanks!
  11. Found in Dahlonega, Georgia. Original origin (if different) unknown. Before I realized it was a fossil, I had aggressively scrubbed the stone with a denture brush in hopes of cleaning off the deep dirt stains. It worked, but I'm not sure if it damaged it at all. It doesn't look noticeably damaged, if it is, but I figured I'd bring it up. This rock is *most likely?* limestone & quartz but I'm not terribly confident in that answer. Any help GREATLY appreciated!! The fossil appears to be a mix of star shaped and column shaped indents, with what appear to be shells as well. There m

    Fossil ID

    Found on the beach this evening and curious as to what it is.
  13. I was wondering if anyone had a good list on different species found in the Conasauga Formation? I've found a few references to trilobites, but I was especially curious about non-trilobite species such as brachiopods, sponges, non-trilobite arhtropods, etc.

    Help identify this

    Grandkids found this and we have no idea what it is. Dogs dug it up
  15. If you have ever looked through my post history on this forum over the years, you'd know that the Cambrian age Conasauga Formation has been one of my favorite formations to hunt, being the best formation to hunt for trilobites in the state of Georgia that I know of. Unfortunately for those of us that came to enjoy the abundance of trilobites the formation provided, the main site in Murray county that had become widely known by the time I had visited it a few times had attracted some...shall we say...less than intelligent guests to the area, resulting in the site becoming fenced off.

    Help with possible egg

    Found this in the Olcmulgee River shed after lots of rain from up North so I'm in Middle Georgia it's possible it could have come down from further north. Background in last picture is a standard index card for true size comparison

    Fish Fossil?

    Hi, I think I found another fossil. You guys are awesome with the information on my last one. And, was hoping for help with this possible fish fossil. If you need more images, please don't hesitate to let me know! Thank you, J

    North Georgia Fossil ID Please

    Piedmont Georgia creek find.
  19. Recently just got back from a trip on Tybee Island! During this trip I went out looking for shark teeth several times a day, and even did a tour with Sundial Charters! Overall in 6 days I found over 150 shark teeth and countless other fossils! I'll be posting them on here! Here's the coolest tooth I found actually on Tybee, I believe it's a Great Hammerhead.

    Mystery Bone

    I found what appears to be some sort of bone while on Shark Tooth Island off the in the Bull River/Savannah River in Georgia. Does anyone have any insight into what this may come from? Horse, or some sort of cetacean?

  22. Does anyone know any good- well honestly any accessible fossil formations in northern Georgia? Looking to set up a fossil hunting trip (haven't been able too because of school) and I have a few spots in mind. Though, I was wondering if anybody had tips or locations. Thanks- Logan

  24. I had the opportunity to visit another Silurian site in the northern Georgia/southern Tennessee area. This is now the third such site I've visited, but the first in the Rockwood Formation as opposed to the Red Mountain Formation. As far as I can tell there's very little different between the two lithologically and paleontologically, with the Rockwood and Red Mountain occupying pretty much the same stratigraphic position. The difference seems to be that the TGS prefers to use the term "Rockwood" to describe it's Niagaran Silurian system and the GGS and AGS prefer the term "Red Mountain", mostly
