  1. Hi, This skull (photographed on display at a museum in China) is labeled on Wikimedia Commons as Zygolophodon, but it's unclear what species of Mammutidae it represents. It could be an Asian species of Zygolophodon, or it could be Miomastodon gobiensis or another Asian Miomastodon species. Anyone curious what species the skull represents?

    Sharkriver New Jersey

    Here is what you may find during an 8 hour tour at sharkriver located in Monmouth county,N.J. The water here is a little deeper and the fossils may be less than a Cretaceous Brook.
  3. My first visit to Fossil Beach at Mornington Victoria today. I found this piece of fossilised coral. I know the finds from this area date to the Middle Miocene period (10-15 million years old) but I was curious as to whether this would date from that period too?
  4. The Chesapeake Group has at least 16 different species of otoliths (from bony fish) that fossilized. I still have at least a thousand otoliths left to sort. So far I only have five different species (I think). I have already searched over a thousand otoliths in material brought back in just four trips to this middle Miocene (Calvert formation) site. Here are pictures of the five. If I find any additional species I will post them. 1. Micromesistius cognatus (a genus of cods) 2. Trisopterus sculptus (a genus of cods) 3. Genyonemus sp. (a croaker) 4. Pogonias sp. (

    Bacchus Marsh Trip

    This weekend I went on another fossil hunting trip with my dad. We went to a place called Bacchus Marsh which is around 65 km east of Melbourne. Here we went looking for Tertiary plant fossils such as Laurus and Cinnamonum. The site was a creek bed under an old bridge. The bridge was located next to the Western Freeway which connects Bacchus Marsh to Melbourne, and extends north to south, eventually emptying into the Werribee river (about 2km away). The creek also goes under the freeway through two tunnels and you can look for fossils on both sides of the freeway, but the side near the br

    Fossil Beach Trip

    Hello, Today I went fossil hunting down at Fossil Beach which is located on the Mornington Peninsula, Victoria, Australia. I have been there a few times before, but it always fun and I always find some good fossil specimens. The formation there is known as the Fyansford formation which is middle Miocene (10-15 miilion years old). The weather was beautiful and warm, with no wind at all and almost flat seas. Daniel. Everything I found. Gastropods Gypsum Crystal

    Vertebrate findings or geology??

    Hi I have currently had some trouble indentifying some ichnofossils from this middle miocnen place, but I have ended up facing a big dilemma... There are some pieces which do not have bony structure, at least on their surface , but I cannot identify with any ichnofossils type(pupal chambers, burrowings, galleries...). I have started to think actually whether or not I am facing vertebrate bones, although it has always been my last idea in mind. The facies is continental and there have been findings of turtles, mastodonts and some equids nearby. I do not want to related these piec

    Unidentified galleries

    Hi everyone! I'm having some trouble classifying some ichnofossils which date back to the middle Miocene. They come from lacustrine/low-energy continental waters. If it helps, I've already identified some other ichnofossils in the area such as Celliforma, Planolites, Psilonichnus, Scoyenia, Palaeophycus, Teisseirei, Camborygma... This first photos are gallery "dead ends" which from my point of view share many caracteristics and should be a recognised ichnogenera. They show striation lines in the ventral part, some kind of "leg dragging" This second set seems lik

    Shark Tooth Hill

    My son, Sean, treated me to a trip at the famous Ernst Shark Tooth Hill Quarry. We spent a total of two full days digging and about an hour sifting but the wind was to strong to be productive. The dust there is like fine powder, didn't know the human ear could hold so much dust. The rest of the trip was fantastic, mild temps and calm wind. Everyone wants to find that elusive Meg. but not the case for us Texans. I did find a lower Hemipristis which are very uncommon at the site. Pictured are my finds of two days digging, lots of Isurus planus and one 2 1\2 l.hastalis also a whale and two dolphi

    Mysterious molar

    Hello, I'm new in this forum I'd like to start up with a question about a molar teeth I hope some of you could answer I found this tooth in middle Miocene strata, and I don't know what it is. The first thing I thought was that it was just a simple tooth from a present animal, but I can't math my tooth with wolfs, foxes nor dogs. I thought then about it being Miocene old and I wonder if it could be Amphicyon or Hemicyon, which I know that have been found in a nearby locality. I can't found enogh material on the internet to clarify this, so a little help would be awesome.
