    Oglesby Unknowns from 7/16/2023

    Here are some more specimens which I quite frankly am scratching my head as to their identify! I'm also wondering if anyone can give a Proper ID for them? Unknown Specimen 1: Unknown Specimen 2: Unknown Specimen 3:
  2. On Sunday, I finally went again the Mazon Creek and later a Bond Formation rock formation of Pennsylvanian age, around 300 Million Years ago, in Braidwood, Illinois and Oglesby, Illinois with three friends after some scheduling adjustments. The trip was awesome and we collected a pretty impressive fossil haul. At Mazon Creek, We mainly hunted for fossils around the shores of local power plant cooling pond (which despite apparently having water temperatures that day of 100 degrees Celsius, still had a decent amount of birds resting on-top). We saw also a large rock pile

    Trip to Oglesby 5/27/2023

    To really start the summer off well, I went recently to a Bond Formation rock formation of Pennsylvanian age, around 300 Million Years ago, in Oglesby Illinois with a few friends. The trip was overall good, though I almost fell off the rocks a couple times. It was a bit hot but overall I think I got a decent amount of fossils for the day. I found a decent amount of Crinoid stem fossils, of which here are a few of them: Found lots of what I think are Chondricthyian teeth (Chomatodus, Gilkmanius, etc.). But I would like help identifying them!!!
  4. I've been going through again more of the fossils I found with @Tales From the Shale on February 18, 2023 at a Pennsylvanian age, around 300 Million Years ago, rock formation in Oglesby Illinois. Their mostly small but I'm a bit curious on their species identities. I hope these specimens could be identified.
  5. Been meaning to post these photos a while back but got caught up with preparing for Spring Break. Here's some more fossils myself, @Tales From the Shale, and another friend found a few weeks ago at a Pennsylvanian age, around 300 Million Years ago, rock formation in Oglesby Illinois. I hope these specimens could be Identified properly. I have no idea what this specimen could be? Some brachiopod and possible Chomodus sp. bits I would like a proper ID for.
  6. A few days ago I went on a fossil hunt with @Tales From the Shale and another friend to a rock formation of Pennsylvanian age, around 300 Million Years old, in Oglesby, Illinois. We also went to a second site in the Mazon Creek area in Braceville, Illinois. Today I decided to put some of the specimens I found under a dissecting scope to see them better and potentially get a proper ID for them. Here is a little Crinoid specimen (I think it may be the top part) Here is a nodule I found at the M

    Trip to Oglesby 2/18/2023

    Two days ago I went with @Tales From the Shale and another friend on a fossil hunting trip to a Bond Formation Roadcut in Oglesby, Illinois with rocks dating around 307-303 Million years ago, to the Pennsylvanian section of the Carboniferous era. Hadn't been back to the site since October 2022 and it was good to be back! I was pleasantly surprised at the lack of snow. But it was clear it only melted very recently judging by the arm sized icicles and the mud. (Quick advice for anyone planning to go fossil hunting at this time in Oglesby: bring snow bo
  8. While on my way to a family reunion in Michigan, I detoured a little south of Chicago to avoid traffic, take a break from driving, and explore a road cut in Oglesby, Illinois. Poison ivy is more than present at this location and I found plenty of it. I am still itching 2 weeks after visiting this site. But my finds make up for it. I was disappointed that no teeth were discovered this trip. Do they occur in a particular level of the Bond Formation???? Anyways, here are some of my finds. Brachiopods are the predominant fossil in the La Salle. So much that a piece of matrix often contains multipl
  9. Last fall the state of Illinois purchased over 2,600 acres near the town of Oglesby from Lone Star Industries, including former quarries, with the goal of making it into state park land. It is near the site of the popular Starved Rock and Matthiessen State Parks, and the state said it would take a few years to assess and prepare the site before it would be open to the public. http://www.newstrib.com/free/matthiessen-and-starved-rock-just-got-a-lot-bigger-video/article_203e37f8-d89a-11e8-9a7e-e72ef52ec0d6.html The quarry exposes the highly fossiliferous LaSalle Limeston
  10. Let me preface this report by saying that I would never usually post something with this much text, however, I see this as a sort of introduction to other members of this site. Most of you are probably unfamiliar with me, so I will provide a little bit of backstory. Before I get stated, I would like to just thank everyone involved with TheFossilForum, be they moderators or just enthusiasts, for kick starting what I have come to think of as my new hobby/passion. I should say, if you are looking for any rare or eye-popping specimens, you have come to the wrong place. Aside from that, please enjo
