  3. Neuropteris Hash Plate

    From the album Massachusetts Fossils

    Various Neuropteris sp. Found in 2018 in North Attleborough, Massachusetts.
  4. What fossil is this?

    I found this while fishing on the beach if a cove in Massachusetts. It was below a huge rock cliff. Other fossils have been found in the same cove. I don't know what kind of rock the cliff is but this was certainly way different.
  5. Hi all, I have a pair of dino tracks. The left one is a Grallator sp. from the Connecticut River Valley. The right one is an Anomoepus scambus from Granby, Massachusetts. I've been trying to figure out their formation. I know they come from the Newark Supergroup. I would like to narrow it down. Do they come from the Portland Formation?
  6. Hi all I'm an old-time fossil fan new to the US. I've had my share of luck hunting fossils in Israel (ammonites, shells etc), and am now based in Boston with kids who have a good eye and need to learn to search. Can anyone recommend a good, legal fossil hunting site in the area (up to ~2 hour ride)? I'd be most keen for trilobites, since there are none to be found in Israel, but would welcome anything that's kid-friendly (i.e. strolling/sifting rather than shale digging). Thanks! Ella
  7. This afternoon I was able to shoot down to North Attleborough to spend a few hours digging through carboniferous aged rock outcrops. It was a nice change of pace from my usual spots down in Rhode Island! The plant fossils here also preserve much better. My favorite find of the day was a plate covered in various Neuropterids. I'll have to explore southern MA more.
  8. Old Fossil Hull

    This is a unique looking items from my fathe r's collection of (maybe) fossils found in the Eastern part of Massachussetts near coastlines. I was wondering if this is special or even a fossil at all. Thanks.
  9. Fossil ID help needed

    Any help in identifying this is greatly appreciated. Not sure of the origin location, but it was given to my sister in Massachusetts by a neighbor that was moving. About 12 inches tall and 8 inches in widest part of cross section (not exact...estimating from memory).
  10. Found by a tribal member at the Gay Head Cliffs along the shoreline. The only suggestion I've heard so far is cycad. Any ideas? (My photos are too large to insert more than one...I can create a link to more if wanted...)
  11. Grallator Track

    From the album Fossil Collection

  12. Eubrontes Track on Custom Stand

    From the album Fossil Collection

    Decided to add some dye to this track for contrast. Was nervous but I think it came out okay!
  13. When I found it the stone had been used as part of the stone wall. Wondering if someone can Identify the plant and how old it might be.
  14. Can anyone ID this fossil? My son found it on a beach in Massachusetts and he's very curious about it. LINK It's about 2 inches across. Thanks!
  15. For anyone who finds themselves up to the challenge of fossil hunting in Massachusetts/New England I have a couple of very informative books to recommend. These books are also relevant for anyone hunting in Connecticut and Rhode Island. Fossils can be hard to find here in Northeastern USA so it pays off to do your homework! I've met both of the authors of these books and they're definitely experts on the local geology/paleontology. Happy Trails! Title: Carboniferous Plant Fossils of North Attleboro, Massachusetts Author: Steve Emma Description: An in depth guide to the Pennsylvanian aged plant fossils that can be found in the Narragansett Bay area. This area includes southern Massachusetts and much of Rhode Island. Title: Windows into the Jurassic World Author: Nicholas G. McDonald Description: An in depth look at the Jurassic aged geology and fossils found in the Connecticut River Valley area which extends from Western Massachusetts down through Connecticut.
  16. This past Saturday, my family treated me to a nice day out to celebrate my birthday. My lovely wife asked what I wanted to do. I took the opportunity to ask to visit a museum I have been wanting to visit. We packed ourselves into the Corolla, and headed to Springfield Massachusetts, to pick my son up from college. 50 minutes later, he was getting into the car. Off we went. Our destination was the Beneski Museum of Natural History, at Amherst College, in Amherst, Massachusetts, USA. This museum, which is free to the public, houses the Hitchcock Ichnology Collection, one of the largest collections of dinosaur footprints anywhere. Edward Hitchcock is considered a pioneer in, if not the father of, Ichnology. He started collecting the footprints in 1835, 7 years prior to Sir Richard Owen naming the taxon, Dinosauria. A minister, then a geologist, and the third president of Amherst College. He wrote several papers about the footprints, laying groundwork for the paleontological study of ichnology. Quite the Gentleman Scholar. While the museum does have many other fossils and casts, and quite an impressive mineral collection, ... the Hitchcock Ichnology Collection is the cornerstone of the museum. The museum is free of charge to the public. You can park anywhere on campus on the weekends. I highly recommend this place to anyone interested in fossils, or minerals. So without any further ado, ... on to the pictures. First the drawers -
  17. Masslite Quarry

    Does anyone know if the Masslite Quarry in Plainville, MA is still closed for collecting?
  18. Salem Ma. Beach find

    Hey all! I'm on vacation and while walking on a beach in Salem Ma. I found some bones. Any ideas?
  19. I went to Turners Falls, Massachusetts hoping to find fish, or trace fossils (and maybe dinosaur trace). Not sure I had much luck... But I did find these. Could they be fossils?
  20. Fossil shells and coral?

    Fossils aren't common in Massachusetts, the exception being the Aquinnah Cliffs in Martha's Vineyard. I happened to chip these out of the cliffs earlier today. I cleaned them best I could. I think I have some fossil corals, and some fossil shells. The large, dark shell is totally rock-solid and survived two accidental drops.
  21. What are these, from Massachusetts?

    I found these at Hoppin Hill Reservoir in N. Attleboro MA what are they?
