  5. Hey guys, Skyelar and I are off to Branson (she's driving right now)! I vaguely remember hearing trilobites can be found in the area? Can anyone be so kind as to help out as to where they are. We're on limited time unfortunately! Cheers, Troy and Skye.

  14. Ordovician Trilobite

    Hey gang, I picked up a box of material from an estate sale out here a couple of weeks ago and have been having a go at it. Finally got around to taking some pictures. This little trilobite has me confused. The tag reads: Ampynna bellatula Trilobite Ordovician Maquoketa Formation Southern MO The formation, age, and location are correct as far as I can tell, but the name isn't bringing anything back. Keep in mind ESTATE sale. Could have been collected DECADES ago. I know names change so that is my only thought. Thanks for any help!! If it will help I may be able to get off my lazy bum and take some pics under magnification. Just let me know!
  15. What kind of fossil is this?

    Hi so I don't know anything about fossils, so that's why I came here. I found this in a creek bed and i was wondering if anyone could identify it. I regret cracking it open now because it feel it may be a fossil. So here's some pics of it before i opened it and cleaned it, and also some pics of it after i cracked it open and cleaned it. So does anyone know what it is, thanks.
  16. Fossil or nodule?

    Found this walking on a creek bank in southern Missouri picked up a small piece and it separated from the rock easily so I grabbed up the rest. It looks like bone to me but the shape is odd. I did some searching and Chert nodule sounds possible.
  17. Another shell

    Found this rock with fossilized shells all through it and one on it.
  18. What might this be?

    I picked this up today and am wondering if it is a fossil or just an odd shaped rock?
  19. Coral...what type?

    I am pretty sure this is fossilized coral, but does anyone know what type? It was found in Jefferson County, MO. The closest creek I found a name to is Head's Creek.
  20. I have found a number of these items in the Pennsylvanian, Kansas City group, Winterset Limestone member in southern Kansas City. Any help in giving an ID will be appreciated. These items are quit common, so the local collectors have likely seen them. The longest I have found is about three inches and the thickness ranges from ½ to 1 ½ inches. Many of them have a core (usually white) that seems to run the length of the item.
  21. Dragon skin

    A lady that gave me this swore it was dragon skin and that she had the skull to it.
  22. Missouri Fossil

    Hi, I found this yesterday in one of our farm roads - I know it is a fossil of some type. I tried to "dig" it out, but the rock kept getting bigger - so I settled for taking a few pictures. I was thinking if it was "something identifiable" I could go back and get it. Please let me know what your thoughts are- thank you,!
  23. I'm new to the site and was excited to find a resource such as this online. I am a collector of Native American artifacts as well as fossils, have been my whole life off and on when time allows. I just relocated (only by 20 miles) and was wondering if there are any other fossil hounds from my neck of the woods (Perry, Ste. Genevieve county, MO). I'm looking for some public areas to do a little looking if anyone has any tips. Thanks!
