Impressions in Large Rocks + Coral and Imprint Fossils | New Member
AmuroRay posted a topic in Fossil IDHello all – Stumbled across this great site/forum after rekindling an interest in fossils and minerals from my youth. I was able to visit a spot I spent a lot of time in summers as a child with my own children and looking to get them interested as well. Location: Southern Ontario on Lake Erie After doing a little research, according to this map (https://www.geologyontario.mndmf.gov.on.ca/mndmfiles/pub/data/imaging/M2544/M2544.pdf) from the Province of Ontario’s Ministry of Northern Development and Mines, the bedrock is Middle Devonian (from the Detroit River Gp.; Onondaga Fm. –

Frozen fossils. Part III
RuMert posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsHello everybody! In continuation of the Frozen Fossils and Frozen Fossils II topics this report covers fossil hunting in real winter, with excavating fossils from under the snow (@JamieLynn might be interested). The trips took place this week when we had a thaw with temperatures raising to +1-2 Celsius after a long period of frost (so that digging became possible). This time I visited the same site as in FF2, which is MUCH poorer than the one covered in FF1, but MIGHT yield more diverse fossils (which was unfortunately not the case).
Mystery fossil from South France
Antivm82 posted a topic in Fossil IDAbout 18 years ago, when I was on holiday with my family in the Cevennes in southern France, I found lots of ammonite fossils near a rivier. I also picked up this slap of stone with strange imprints in it. Tracks of a sea creature like a worm or arthropod? On the other side are the imprints of something that looks like a starfish. It has been a mystery for me since the day I found it. Any suggestions/ideas what i can be?

Dug Gap Battle Road, Dalton GA : Road cut
Nimravis posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsYesterday I stopped at a road cut that I had seen on the internet. The road cut is located on Dug Gap Mountain Road in Dalton, Georgia. To be honest, I do not know anything about this the age of this formation or the shell imprints that are in the matrix, which I believe to be a mudstone. The only thing I found were imprints of small shells and a live Georgia scorpion. If anyone has information on this site, I would appreciate it. Here are some pics of the area , the scorpion and my finds.
