    ID this fossil?

    Can you tell me what this is? The orange center breaks down to powder. Found in Hickory lick branch of Big creek in southern Lincoln Co on Warren Co line.
  2. As I have been researching large ctenacanthiform sharks from North America, I've been wondering if there are any known globally that are currently unnamed. I definitely know of the large Ctenacanthiformes Saivodus stratus (found in both what is now North America and Great Britain), the large Ctenacanthiform from the Permian Kaibab formation in Arizona, and the 'Texas supershark' (a likely large species of Gilkmanius) from the Pennsylvanian Texas Graham formation (all three as larger or larger than an adult Great White Shark (Carcharodon carcharias)). But are there any large ctenac

    Spaghetti ball fossil

    I found this in a creek in the Ozarks in MO. Anyone know what it is? It’s about the size of the palm of my hand.
  4. Location: Missouri Period: Pennsylvanian Formation: Iola Formation (Muncie Creek Shale Member) Hello! once again. Today I have what is either a cluster of scales, or a possible chunk of listracanthus that was entombed in one of these many phosphate nodules I have come to possess over the years. I only say Listracanthus due to the "scales" looking feathery and wavy much like the 3 other Listracanthus denticles I have found so far from these nodules. The main difference is that it appears to be attached to something this time. Let me know what you think!

    Looking for an ID to species level if possible

    Hello, looking to see if anyone can ID any of these to species level? They were found in a creek which is a mix of Middle Ordovician and Lower Mississippian rock in Defiance MO . Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Best way to clean these?

    Hello everyone, does anyone know the best way to clean these? I can’t sadly prep them with a sandblaster or air gun but I wanted to see if there is a way to dunk them in something? I’ve already washed them with soap and water and used a toothbrush. Any recommendations would be great!
  14. Location: Missouri Period: Pennsylvanian Formation: Iola Formation (Raytown Limestone Member?) Hello once again. I happened to have come across a Cladodont tooth of some kind but I am unsure of what it exactly belongs too. I am stuck between Glikmanius or Saviodus. I'm thinking its the later due to how straight the tooth seems, but I am not sure how to truly tell the two apart. I notice this specimen is oddly white compared to the black teeth I'm used to.

    Weirdo 2

    So deciding if this is one thing or two things. I am currently leaning towards it being a skinny coral with burrow/root trace around it. What do you see?

    Fossil Permit?

    I’ve been watching some YouTubers who find fossils in Florida and they’ve brought up the point of getting a fossil permit. I live in Missouri and I tried looking up if I needed one but haven’t seen anything saying I need it or where to even get one if needed. I also looked up the legality of selling fossils here but I get mixed answers. Is it legal if from public land? Thanks for any help!
  17. Recently, I've been thinking about conducting an exploratory fossil hunting trip in the St. Louis area of Missouri. I've never been there before, but I've heard there is a lot of caves and limestone outcrops near the city. I've also heard there is a decent amount of Ordovician and Mississippian fossils in the area. I'm just wondering if anyone's been fossil hunting in the St. Louis area before and what fossils can be found there?

    Backyard Trip

    My folks have a nice lake behind their house. It is relaxing to spend a warm evening watching a heron spear fish or geese fight each other. Or watch silt slowly fill the lake bed. Across the street, a housing developer stripped off a bunch of soil down to the bedrock, but ran out of money before building on the land. This has resulted in some significant erosion and sedimentation in the lake, but this cloud does have a silver lining. I soon noticed a thick bed of shale exposed on the hill. So it was only a matter of time until I make the short trip to the top. The hill,

    Not sure what it is

    I found this at the creek and not sure what it is. I thought it was a claw but not sure. I wish I knew what and it come from.

    Ameura missourienisis

    From the album: Missouri Trilobites

    One of the smaller specimines, but that just makes for better details! Found this little guy in what I call the upper Winterset Limestone member from the Dennis Formation. This pygidium less than 5mm.

    Cladodont Tooth

    From the album: Chondrichthyan Teeth From The Pennsylvanian Period

    Not exactly sure what cladodont this one belongs too. Less than 10mm due to missing the tip.

    Weirdo 1

    Just a weird impression I would have not looked twice at but it seems to have some material in it that would suggest it is actually a fossil instead of just geological weirdness.
