Port Huron, Michigan trip
SilurianSalamander posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsI drive 8 hours with a friend to a location he remembers from his childhood as yielding a lot. Oh boy it did. 100% worth the drive. Lake Huron, among the agates, pyrite, yooperlite, has some extraordinary Devonian fossils. All fossils were collected from the beach of his family’s property except for the fenestelid bryozoan, which was found at a gas station on the way there. please enjoy this collection of gastropods, petoskey stones, various tabulate corals, crinoids, stromatoporoids, bivalves, Brachiopods, tenteculites, horn corals, an unidentified agatized fossil in jasper matrix

Possible tetrapod fossil found - Illinois
georgiad2234 posted a topic in Fossil IDHi all, I recently found this fossil, and I was hoping I could find some help here identifying it. I found it at Fort Sheridan in Illinois, and wasn’t expecting something that looked like it could be vertebrate. I’m familiar with the fossils with the area, and was surprised to find something like this. Any ID suggestions or suggestions for where to get it ID’d would be appreciated. Someone I talked to said it may be an amphibian/tetrapod fossil (potentially an egg) Description of fossil: small potato shaped rock with skull and thorax of specimen showing. “Feet” protrudi

ice age fish USA
Jdeutsch posted a topic in Questions & AnswersI am trying to find information of how fish populations changed in the central USA/Great Lakes region in the last 100,000 years or so and am drawing blanks When did walleye/ Sander vitreus appear and where did it come from?. The same goes for brook trout/ Salvelinus fontinalis. Are there any good collections of fossils through the various periods of glaciation? Are there any regions where these neogene/quatrenary fish fossils are being uncovered? Where is there a literature on the subject?

Great Lakes fossil (Lake Huron)

Great Lakes: Crinoid? Claw? Marine Arthropod? Bone?
InquisitiveOsteology posted a topic in Fossil IDMaybe someone can help with a positive ID for a few things I found while walking along Lake Michigan? They are very tiny and nothing too spectacular... but it would be nice to know what I stumbled across. Thanks! 1. Tiny crinoid fossil? The side view is particularly interesting to me, because it resembles an artifact (bead) moreso than other images I found online of crinoid fossils. 2. Claw of some sort? I'm still trying to learn the grooves characteristic of various claws and teeth, so I wouldn't be surprised if I misidentified this. 3. Fossil of a marine arthropod? 4. Bone?
