  1. Hello all! Sorting through some new Cretaceous Post Oak Creek matrix and have a few questions on what some of these might be. Thanks for any help! First is this round tooth....could it be croc? It doesn't have any striations, which I think croc would, but it is perfectly round so not a worn shark blade, I think. Anyways, any suggestions would be appreciated! 1. Tooth? 5 mm 2. This little piece...may not be identifiable as anything, but the surface texture is just interesting. 2mm other side 3. Possibly a denticle? Or tooth? I'
  2. Hello everyone, I hope life has been pacing along well for all of you. At the moment, I find myself at school and away from my idealistic home, that is, buried alongside the Cretaceous fossils swimming in the various soils of NJ. No worry though! I have been going through some micro gravel in Ohio and today will present you with my second batch of finds. I believe I've found some cool things so far. The most notable differences between this post and my previous (besides the fossils of course) is that I post fewer photos and more group shots. Enjoy. Meristodo
  3. Hello everyone, in addition to posting my other topic today, I am going to post this one. With the summer coming to a close, I am preparing to go back to college in Ohio and continue my study of Neuroscience and Mathematics. The rain in Ohio and ID'ing NJ fossils in the ID section often make me lament all of potential NJ hunts I am missing out on because I am at school. So, I thought it would be a good idea to collect micro matrix using a window screen and stock several buckets full of gravel to look through during the semester. Over the last two weeks or so I've had the opportunity to do some

    Lee Creek finds for ID

    I found these fossils in matrix from the Aurora spoil pile. What kind of shark teeth are these two specimens, please. Can the coral be ID'd? Thanks for looking.

    Matrix finds quandary

    I and others have been finding these in the matrix I've been collecting about a mile East of the Ernst Quarry in Bakersfield, California. Mid. Miocene, Temblor Formation. I have never found them from the Sharktooth Hill matrix I used to collect. Items all average about 3mm in diameter. Some sort of dermal denticle or fish scale? I hope the phone picture is adequate. Any ideas?
  12. Another from my fossil dig. S.W.Michigan. 1st this side shown wet is very dull, not sure if it can be improved. 2 other side shown wet. # 3 showing a zooecia. all image taken with my cell phone. last four with a clip on micro lens and dry. The zooecia Bryozoan is 1/8th inch .4 cm

    mixed, fossils

    This is a chunk of Michigan clay with sand and probably calcium. I do not know yet if I can do much with it other than perhaps cut down the size to have the fossils. Don't know if a hack saw would help much. all are like micro size and one looks like an Crinoid Archimedes screw 0.7 cm x 0.3 cm. I would like to know what is the tire track like tract line? 5/8th inch, or 0.1 x 1.59 cm or 15.8750 mm. Is this an actual fossil or impression left by a life form. Two are with my phone zoomed in about 1.7.
  14. Here is a series of five images showcasing some of my finds from the first hunt through the Merritt Island matrix. I have just begun to study the fossils in this intriguing matrix, and hope that I haven't got too many wrong. There are so many possibilities when you find a bone in this stuff. It might be mammal, or reptile...amphibian, or even fish. The variety is one thing I wanted to showcase. Of course, the amphibian fossils are the really exciting finds, but they are the most difficult to identify. These images will be featured on episode 5 of 'Fossil Hunters'. continued in ne
  15. I am offering up some Lee Creek micro matrix up for trade. I looking to trade mainly for other micro matrix, nothing that can only be sorted with a microscope please. I will entertain other offers as well. Adam
  16. I have a pretty extensive collection of shark, ray, fish and other micros from sites all over the US, Europe, North Africa and Australia. You can see a very small part of my collection in my TFF posts at the below links. As I add new posts to TFF I'll update this list. I want to thank Earl M. for organizing my micro posts as shown below, which is a much more useful listing than in my original post: Paleozoic Silurian E. m. Silurian (Wenlockian) - Rochester Sh. – Niagara Co., New York http://www.thefossil.../?hl=+new +york Devonian E. m. Devonian (Eifelian) –

    More Fla "Creek" Finds

    Here's a couple more finds from my Fla "Cookie Cutter" Creek matrix that have me stumped. No idea what they are, but the two look similar enough they may be variations of the same thing; or maybe they're just two similar looking rocks! (1st post has pics of the initial find, 2nd post has the other find plus comparison of the two. Scale is 1mm increments.) Hopefully some of you "CC Creek" or micro experts can point me in the right direction on these. Sorry for the lousy pics but its the best I could do with such small specimens without some better equip -- any suggestions? Thanks for looking.
  18. Do microfossils come as small as the grains of sand, and if so, how do you separate them?

  20. Pleistocene ray, fish, salamander, frog, snake, lizard and mammal specimens from matrix from the Melbourne Bone Bed from the Indian River, Florida. I want to thank John Sacha for supplying the matrix. This matrix was basically shells with fossil specimens. This was an extremely interesting matrix to search because of the large number of mammal and small reptile specimens. It also contained a good amount of amphibian specimens which I haven’t seen before in matrix. There were marine specimens also like fish specimens but the shark teeth were pretty beat and there were only a couple of ray speci
  21. This is a quick post, with a few group pictures, on the anthill matrix that I recently collected from my sons’ Nebraska ranch this May. The specimens in this post are from anthill matrix that was collected from anthills that are in the flats of the ranch which are Oligocene, Lower Scenic Member, Brule Formation. I’m currently working with 2 amphibian (frog and salamander) researchers, 1 squamate researcher (lizards, legless lizards and snakes), 1 mammal researcher (rodents) and 1 bird researcher. I’ll soon be also working with an eggshell researcher and another mammal researcher (insect

    Aurora, NC

    I will be traveling to North Carolina in the next couple of weeks and will be within striking distance of Aurora, NC. Aside from across from the museum are there any other public access points to spoils piles from the Lee Creek mine that people are willing to divulge. I figure with the Aurora, NC fossil fair having just wrapped up that maybe there are some other access piles in the vicinity. My primary interest is screening some of the material to take with me to search for mircos. What I want to avoid is filling a five gallon bucket to then only be visited by the police. I don't get to t

    Douglas Point 2/24/17

    Sometimes it can take me a while to do a trip report, but i feel like better late than never right? I headed out to Douglas Point for the main reason of getting some sand material that Ive been told is good for micro teeth. I found the material that i was looking for and loaded my backpack(way to full). I had just made a new sifter for micros and was looking to test it out, and I know literally nothing about them so if anyone wants to chime in on some resources i can study go right ahead. Anyways, I did my regular fossil hunting and didn't find much other than some nice Sand Tigers. I had a di
  24. I’m posting a few pictures from the trip I took with my sons in September 2016 to our Eocene/Oligocene Nebraska ranch. There are a couple of really neat areas on the ranch itself of which pictures are shown below. This is one small area of Eocene Chadron Formation on the ranch. The vast majority of the ranch is Oligocene Brule Formation. It is difficult to see clearly in these pictures but this area of the ranch has many visible different layers of the Brule Formation. The layers really stand out when the formation is wet and the colors are mu

    Another Eureka moment

    A few weeks ago I submitted a request for ID on a couple of tiny bones from TFF member Sacha's Merritt Island Pleistocene matrix. http:// Small Pleistocene bone for ID - Fossil ID - The Fossil Forum The help that I received was based on the limited photos that I supplied. Lateral views alone just don't cut it! I was not satisfied with 'mouse', so I 'dug' a little deeper. I decided to re-photograph a few of the odd little bones in different aspects this time. Duh... my results really do illustrate the importance of showing the 'ends' of a bone. It was very obv
