    A Crab

    I had already started working on this one before I left for Canada, so I decided to take it along and finish it up in my spare time. Now it's completed. A Coeloma sp. crab which I found 10 years ago in the Oligocene deposits at Mogenstrup beach on Limfjord, Denmark.
  2. Despite the heat I managed to get a solo trip down to the Ramanessin yesterday afternoon. I was hoping after the rains this past week things might be a little stirred up. On my last post I joked about the tiny super worn mosasaur tooth breaking the curse... and I am happy to report I was right. Little bit of everything this trip (small squares are 1/4 inch): Big mosasaur tooth, worn, but it made me very happy Pretty nice little lobster/shrimp Partial ratfish plate Coral/sponge? Crow shark t

    Lobster Prep Advice

    Hello All, I came across this fossil at a local rock and gem store and I'm having a go at preparing it. Apparently it is from Indonesia and I believe is a Thalassina, although with the spindle like legs I haven't seen anything that looks like an exact match. Here's my question; the fossil is covered with a sticky coarse sandstone, and I'm wondering how much of the matrix I should leave between joints in the tail and between the legs on the main body. I'm not sure if removing too much matrix will just cause the fossil to fall apart, but I suspect it might. Has anyone had
  4. Found several years ago in Big Brook, NJ. Any help IDing would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance. Hope it isn't considered rude to call people into a post this way, but going to call on @Trevor for his opinion.

    Crustacean Possibly

    I don't think I posted Larry yet, but here he is! Meet Larry the Lobster! He didn't look much like a crab. He looked more like the Lobster from sponge bob. The lobster was buff and this one looks pretty buff to me!

    Crustacean Prep

    Hi Everyone, Found this at the NSR last weekend. I would really like to remove some of the grey matrix but that is beyond my skill set. Do not wan to ruin any of it. So, how would I go about stabilizing it? I use clear Elmers glue for the bones and some ammonites but not sure about soaking this in that mixture. Any help is appreciated.

    lobster?

    Hi Is this lobster piece ? Location : Southern Poland, Kraków Age: Touronian , Cretaceous
  8. Hello. Does anyone know about the authenticity of the fossil crabs and lobsters below? I've seen them pop up on a few different sites and I'm suspicious because they all look nearly identical. Unfortunately, I don't have any information about age, location, etc. Thanks for your help.
  9. Crustaceans are a large, diverse group of anthropods which includes the crabs, prawns, lobsters, barnacles and other shelled animals. Perhaps owing to their hard shells and marine lifestyles, crustaceans have a rich and extensive fossil record, extending up to the Cambrian, though they do not appear in abundance until the Carboniferous. They make for attractive and familiar fossils, and are one of my favorite groups to collect. Allow me to present my humble collection.

  10. I found this listed as a cretaceous lobster from the Kiowa Formation in Kansas. I didn't have much success finding anything similar with some quick research, do any of you guys know what exactly we're looking at here?
  11. Hey, I was wondering if these were real or fake, they look off to me but I’m not by any means an expert, so I’d love some help! TIA

    Fossil Lobster

    Here's part of a upper lias fossil lobster, i found this at Whitby on the coast before the Covid lockdown earlier this year. I believe the species is Glyphea I do enjoy looking for fossil lobster nodules on the yorkshire coast in England so i'm trying to figure out exactly what i have here. I was told this is a left cephalothorax. So do i have a head and 2 front feet? Or is it the head from a side view. If any body can find any useful diagrams/pictures of what i have it'd be much appreciated. Thanks Liam

    Meyeria Lobster Prepped

    Hi, Attached are photos of a small 5.5cm lobster I finished prepping. The original semi-prepped lump I purchased was identified as Shrimp or Crayfish, Cretaceous Period, from England. My research identifies it as a Meyeria Lobster from the "lobster beds" of the Greensand Formation, Fissicostatus Zone, Atherfield on the Isle of Wight, England. Does anyone have additional or corrected information?

    Jurrasic lobster?

    Found yesterday on limestone quarry near Cracow. Site is confirmed 100% jurrasic. Before any preparations I want to be sure what I'm dealing with. Could it be a part of a lobster?

    Hi guys I need help...

    Hi guys, I need help identifying what i think might be a fossilized Lobster tail and maybe a part of another unknown crustacean.

    Lobster fossil?

    Where are most of the lobster fossil found and what time periods are they from? Thanks.
  19. This is part 2, site 2 of my Memorial day fossil hunting trip. You can see the site one report here: I chose to drive out to Denton Creek north of Ft. Worth. I had been there before, but had not gotten to explore the area. It was the takeout point from a kayaking trip I’d taken down the creek a few weeks before. It took me 30 minutes out to drive out there from the first location I hunted in Benbrook. If you pass the creek going north you can go up to the next exit and then loop back to the creek. There is a little rock and dirt path off the shoulder of the road that leads do
  20. hi guys sorry to bother again but i have found these two crustaceans on our favourite auction site and was wondering whether they were both real(apparently the lobster has a little restoration to the claws) and if so which one would you guys prefer to go for thansk
  21. Hello to all fellow fossil lovers. Ok I found this at the Lincoln formation in porter wa. At first I tried to relieve it from its cast by striking it with a hammer. Then I soaked it In Vinager and chipped away at it. I decided that I would ruin it if I continued. I froze it and thawed about 4 times. The end fell off as you can see. Is this a lobster or shrimp? How do I finish exposing it?
  22. A little Psuedoglyphea sp. from the Whitby mudstone formation, found at Sandsend near Whitby. A rather rare find due to the carapace and mandibles all being there. Usually you find the odd mandible or legs. It sits proudly in my collection already, and it’s not even been prepped yet. Next month it’s being sent off to be professionally prepped
  23. I cant tell you how long this has been sittin in a box collecting dust? I tossed it aside many years ago when I realized after many hours of prep that it was only half a lobster!!! Today my youngest son and I were going through some old boxes of stuff and ran into this today. He was saying how cool it was, and I have to say I agreed with him,,,,, so to the saw it went! Never in my life have I ever cut a lobster concretion in half! I was also nervous about it and wondered if by chance we would somehow run into the other half,,,,,, but no, there really was no other parts of the lobster
  24. Just sharing afew of my finds i've been working on today. Firstly a big, marine reptile or fish coprolite that i expected to pop out of the matrix. I'm not sure if it'll look better kept in, but it's pretty delicate. Secondly a lobster, claw or body part. Not sure which. Remember i'm still new to prepping, so everything is new to me.
