    A fossil hunt in Taiwan

    Finding info on where to find fossils is hard in Taiwan, so I haven't been able to really go. But I made a friend who said he would take me, and this Sunday he did. Plan was to go to a place where you can find shark and fish teeth and rare whale fossils---but it was inaccessible because of the typhoon over the weekend which flooded the area. So, went to Plan B--an area where you can find sea urchin fossils. Unfortunately, the vast majority are only partial pieces, and that is all I found. But some nice partial pieces with nice patterns and colors on them. Plus, I did find SOMETHING, so it stan

    Trammel Fossil Park?

    Has anyone visited Trammel Fossil Park in Ohio? If so, how what did you find and do you happen to have pictures? Any tips on where to look and when? Looking any info you may have. Thanks
  4. The day began with a Calamites trunk But two steps from this fossil where not usual finds Granatwerfer ('Priest Mortar') Granate 1914-1918 The Gr.W.16s proved to be popular and very effective weapons for the Germans. They had a high rate of fire, useful range, and reasonable effective detonation. They could be used in either direct or indirect fire applications – direct fire was used to fire at things like sentry posts, gun loopholes, and the like. When fired this way, the grenade fragments would fill an area roughly 5m wide and 50m long, while a round fired in a high a
  5. Anyone getting out on any hunts this season? I have been on three fossil hunts in and around Charleston. Found teeth, bone, meg frags, angy frags, hemi's, extinct tiger, the usual. No large perfect fossils this time around. I hope to check out a couple more near virgin sites this season. I wanted to ask a question. Has anyone used side scan sonar to locate gravel beds and fossils in the bottom of a river? How well does it work on a 1 to 10 scale? Wanted to make a couple of announcements about local fossil shows. NOVEMBER 2021 Foss
  6. I went yesterday on my fav sites to find new good carboniferous fossils,the weather was great and i made few good finds At first ,i find two very nice and not easy to find Trigonocarpus(most of the times ,it's hard to find one!) I found also a nice Sphenopteris plate(nice colors) And a Neuropteris plate A Lonchopteris sample Probably a very unusual Crossotheca crépini zeiller plate But my best find was

    Waxahachie Tx ???

    Hey Everyone, Changed from NSR for awhile. Went with a buddy to Waco. Found some nice things. Want to go out with my sister to somewhere near Waxahachie. Anyone have a good creek they are willing to share? You can PM me if you want. I will keep the secret spot.
  8. Hey everyone, I just posted a video where i share my best nautilus fossil at the end. This was found on the Yorkshire Coast and is pretty rare to find a Nautilus. It's the only near complete one i've found pretty much
  9. Hey guys, i just posted a new video of two fossils hunts i recently had on the Yorkshire Coast. Feel free to watch if interested. I found an awesome nautilus and some really cool Ichthyosaur Bones.
  10. Here is an early morning fossil hunt. I always prefer the early mornings because often I get the beach to myself. Hopefully you enjoy if you want to watch
  11. A fossil hunt I filmed recently, which ended up being surprisingly productive. Hopefully you enjoy.
  12. Every Saturday morning i'm in Big Brook but when i leave there are 6.5 long days before i get to go again. I find myself daydreaming about my next visit specifically or fossils in general. Of course i read The Fossil Forum repeatedly, visit the great Big Brook sites on line (and others), i look at my "collection" and perhaps reorganize, i plan where in Big Brook i will go on my next trip and maybe consult some maps, and of course think about what i will find next visit and whats on my bucket list. Doesn't matter if i'm at work or out on a run, my thoughts will sooner or later come back to
  13. Just came back from the Southwest of France, with nice pictures :)(and few finds) My first week was in Rocamadour,Lot,a very old City ,i tried to visit few Quarries,two samples in the Dordogne,very close,and one near Figeac.Only few minerals(perhaps someone could tell me if i was right to carry them in my bag,i know nothing about minerals) On the road ,good sight? Very impressive,but very poor fossils tracks Minerals perhaps with a good prey?
  14. I will be hunting at penn Dixie from the 21st to the 24th. If anyone is willing to take the necessary precautions ie masks and social distancing as much as possible, then I would love company. I’m ready to split a lot of rock!!
  15. I thought i would make a video on what you might find on an average hunt at one of my favourite beaches i collect at. it’s quite a long video, so hopefully you enjoy it
  16. Obviously with everything going on in the world I would not be going out to go on excursions, but once everything is over I would like to try and find some teeth in my spare time. I live in Irmo and was wondering if anyone knows of any nearby locations that are good for fossils. Places not nearby would be fine as well, for I am up for a little bit of a drive.

    To the Reef!

    Ok so I'm fairly new to hunting fossils my daughter is really into it so we gathered tools and found some in a road cut. Aparently here on Vancouver island there are a few reefs at low tides that are supposed to be great places to look my silly question is how the heck do you see anything when most of the surfaces of the rocks are covered in barnacles? Its hard to tell much of anything lol! Any tips for a new hunter?
  18. It was a Sunny day and we went to the Portlandian beach of Wimereux,northern France Many pelecypods internal mold
  19. Today I took my youngest son, Devin, to DSR for a 2hr hunt. The rest of the family was engaged in other things and we neede to get outdoors. We arrived around 3pm just as the sun was making it's way over the hillside. This helped to cool down an otherwise hot day. Devin decided that he did not want to hunt fossils so I brought his BB gun and let him shoot while I searched for Devonian Goodness. I was hoping for a nice trilo, but alas, they seemed to evade me today. I did find pygidiums but that was it. On the other hand Brachs and Bivalves were plentiful. Gastropods made a small appearance. I

    Summer time blues

    What's become of our great Wild Kyle and Paleo Chris hunting in the Floridian jungle videos? I know the rivers are probably swollen, but that has never stopped our boys from finding great things roadside. Alright, I don't really care where they are, I just miss the duck!
  21. Hello All! I've looking at a trip around the Perth Australia area hunting for fossils - My mate and our kids would love to spend a day digging and sifting looking for some fossils (although I suspect my kids will lose interest in 10 minutes) I've heard of the area around mole cap hill but I'm unsure where to start - If anyone is planning a trip I've love to tag along and get the gist of it all as I'm unsure where to start.

    Trilobites in Norway

    This year's second hunt was successful, considering the snow. There is still a bit of snow covering some places. I was still lucky enough to find some ok fossils. The area where I found these trilobites is called fossildalen/fossilvalley in slemmestad (i`ve showed pictured from the area before). The fossils here in the area stem from the time periods of Cambrian, Ordovician and Silurian, a period of 541 million to 419 million years ago. At that time, Slemmestad was a seabed in a relatively shallow sea. The trilobites fossils I found are about 420 million years old I believe. I foun

    GMR Trip

    This past weekend I went to the creek (GMR) in Greenville, NC. We leave the house around 8 am and get there at around 9:15 am. We get in the water, walking to the spot, testing spots in the bottom for a while till we make it to the spot at around 10. When we got there, our hole looks like it was dug out a whole lot. We were walking up, hoping there was still gravel and I spot and little meg laying there on the bottom. I see lots and lots of smaller teeth, causing me to think that a storm washed out all the gravel. We start digging, finding tons of teeth, and around 1 pm, we eat lu
  24. Don't flip over a rock in a creek to try to ID the snake that swam under it... cause if you do 4-5 babies might swim out and one may end up inside your sandal! Looked it up later, and I think it was a banded water snake. Was pretty funny after the fact! Not so much when I was flailing around trying to get my sandal off. Please don't tell my wife! (not my image, but it looked a lot like this)
  25. On Sunday, my family and I decided to head out for a fossil excursion to spend out day.@Uncle Siphuncle pointed out a good fossil site for me to find trilobites at a road cut in St. Leon, Indiana. Thanks a ton!! Unfortunately, as it had rained for quite a while that day, we had to wait until well after noon to reassure ourselves that we would not need to fossil hunt in the rain. Luckily, this also meant we got fresh picks before the other collectors! Here is the haul from the day: (I hope to bring back more over the course of the week!) Top to bottom:
