  1. Does anyone know of a source for a small magnifying box/case where I can display small micro fossils? Thanks in advance.
  2. I starting going through what will be my last round in the ring with the micro fossils from Genundewa. These Middle Devonian fossils from New York have been so much fun and provided many lessons. I have been hunting primitive and elusive shark remains. I have lost or broken a few. There have been no complete teeth but I absolutely had a blast and learned a lot. This evening I found a really nifty articulated group of 3 shark denticles with what appears to be some sort of connective tissue or something. I am certain these denticles are not grouped together via fossilization but rat
  3. I was going over some of bits of Permian micro mix from the Neva Formation in Kansas and I found a fossil I had come across in my initial search months ago. I recently looked at a publication on Permian sharks from Russia. I remembered seeing something similar in that publication. It was a monocuspid denticle attributed to Cobelodus and I can not help but wonder if our mystery fossil is chondrichthyes denticle of some sort. Any thoughts ?

    Help with udig quarry shale fossil

    Hi everyone, firstly I'll apologize for the poor quality pictures. These Fossil are tiny and it's hard to get a good exposure. These things which are in all the shale I brought back are like rounded objects. They will come out leaving the impression behind. One is 1/8th in and another is about half of that. If any one can help, I'd love to know. On the paper they gave us showing what we can find, there are brachiopods but these seem to all and not the right shape. paper has something called pyilocardia or something like that. Thank you

    Shell, seed or...?

    "digging" around in some micro matrix from the Wellington fm out of Jackson Co, Oklahoma (Permian age) & found this. Not sure if it's a shell, seed or alien life form. The shell or life form is what I'm hoping (they'll be keepers).. the seed.. probably not so much. Found all sorts of Xenacanthus shark teeth bits along with a few tiny whole ones. But this thing is different. It was sticking out of a bit of matrix that I had to break apart, so I'm hoping it's old & not just some fluke. Only 3 mm in size (ruler marks are in mm), it seems pretty ornamental. Anyhoo, without further delay, t

    Micro fossil?

    I have this rock at least i think its a rock and was looking at it under a microscope ...if this is a fossil its the smallest I have found the white part is only half the size of a grain of rice if that. One pic is of it dry the others wet. its pretty just wish it was larger... has one large flower shaped patter and a couple smaller ones on it a lighter color

    Frontal Bone

    This is another find from Sacha's Merritt Island Pleistocene matrix....aka Frog Toe matrix. I have tried to ID it, and believe it to be a frontal bone from the skull of a small rodent in the family Cricetidae, probably vole. Can anyone confirm or have a different idea? Thanks for looking.
  9. old bones

    Epiphysis ?

    Is this an epiphysis? It seems so fit so well on the ends of the caudal verts in form that I have from this matrix. I have included a second picture with the new find combined (centered) with the vertebrae from a previous post. All are the same scale.

    Two Odd Finds For I D Please

    Here are a couple of fossils from Sacha's Merritt Island matrix. Although it is a shelly matrix from dredge spoil, there are very few marine fossils. These are two of the ones I am trying to ID. I don't know if this one is coral or bryozoan, or what.... it almost looks like bone. These look familiar. Are they fish operculum? Thanks for looking.

    Bone For I D Please

    This bone was found in Sacha's Merritt Island, Florida Pleistocene matrix. I don't know much about bones and would like to know where in the skeleton it would be located. I am hoping that the one complete end is enough for an ID. Thanks for looking.

    Mammal Tooth, Bone And Coprolite?

    Here are three items that I need help identifying. They were all found in TTF member Sacha's Merritt Island matrix. First is an entire bone that I hope someone can ID for me. The ends are rather distinctive. Where in the skeleton it belongs would be nice to know... even better what animal it is from if possible. Thanks for looking. This tiny tooth still has it's roots. Any ideas which Pleistocene animal it is from? And lastly, is this a coprolite?
  13. Let me first say im doing this all from my smartphone, so sorry for any bad pics. I bought a micro camera attachment for my phone for $20 a few weeks ago and im still ironing out the details of how to get a presentable picture from it, but here's my first attempts. I found this little guy last night while sifting some Lee Creek micro matrix. I was pumped when i found it in my first couple of scoops. I thought it to be a Whale Shark tooth, but now after seeing some pictures im not so sure. Any help is appreciated guys!

    Our Micro Fossil Of The Day

    On impulse today, went on a hike. We had a virgin from Chicago (never been fossil hunting) with us, and she loved it all. Amazed that we could dig about a little and find shark teeth! It was so cool to see her appreciation. We only got in the water up to our knees today. We are all Florida Crackers and terrified of anything resembling cold. We sifted for about two hours total. Scored quite a few good shark teeth, a couple of small vertebrae, a couple of gator teeth, barracuda. All micro fossil. Had to share the find of the day.
