    Hey guys! I wanted to know if there were any expert Calvert cliffers on here and would be willing to show a noobie the way around and some cool spots here and there!

    Mazon creek

    Spring break for me will be in mid March. I was thinking of going out to mazon creek, but i have never been there before and have read that it is hard on newbies to the site to find the correct nodules. Does anyone know of a club trip in that time period, or who lives near by who would be willing to make a trip with me to one of the common public places.

    Petrified Fingertip

    Hello everyone, I found something that is a first of it's kind I've been told. This needs a close and careful look, so please examine all the details. And I can't wait to hear what everyone has to say on this one. I've been collecting rocks and fossils for 25+ years here in N.E. Minnesota. I found this on private property a few years back, and it sat in my collection until recently I looked at it again and seen it for what it really is finally. I am certain this is a petrified fingertip. And I know it's hard to believe, but take a close, and careful look at it please before

    Wondering what this is a fossil of

    Wondering what the smaller impression is that looks like a circle with lines all around it. I am obviously very new to this. Our creek bed and land has fossils on almost any rock you pick up.
  5. Found in Dahlonega, Georgia. Original origin (if different) unknown. Before I realized it was a fossil, I had aggressively scrubbed the stone with a denture brush in hopes of cleaning off the deep dirt stains. It worked, but I'm not sure if it damaged it at all. It doesn't look noticeably damaged, if it is, but I figured I'd bring it up. This rock is *most likely?* limestone & quartz but I'm not terribly confident in that answer. Any help GREATLY appreciated!! The fossil appears to be a mix of star shaped and column shaped indents, with what appear to be shells as well. There m

    Fish fossil or dumb coincidence?

    Hi, new to fossil hunting... and at this point it's just hard to find out what my imagination is or what's real. I found this rock on the beach in Denmark... so...dumb coincidence, or actually a fish imprinted on a rock? just noticed the back looks weird to

    Not sure if fossil?

    Hello! Indulged my hobby a little this weekend (4-7 Mar) and headed to Lyme Regis for some sunny ammonite hunting. Found this while digging on East Beach there… I’m nowhere near experienced enough to determine if it’s even a fossil at all, but it was such an odd shape and I thought I’d ask! About 1 3/8 inch (3.5cm) across and approx 1 inch (2.5cm) thick. Found 5 March 2022 on East Beach, Lyme Regis, Dorset, UK. See photos below for details. Thank you everyone!

    Odd rock or?

    Evening (morning) everyone! New member here, so be gentle... i have no previous experience or knowledge of fossils but i was out walking the dog the other day and found this strange looking piece of stone or rock but it appears to be made up of two different materials and almost looks as if it has veins or arteries inside... Just looked a little odd, compared to every other stone. Any suggestions on what it could have been? Or is it just some rock... It was found very close to the River Dove in the Midlands (UK). N.B... It's around 2" in length and perhaps about

  10. Hey guys, I'm completely new to fossil collecting, so I have a question. I would be very grateful if someone could tell me their opinion, if this Mosasaur tooth is real or not. I thought maybe because of the one visible repair. Please let me know what you think! Thank you so much! Hendrik
  11. So I started fossil hunting and collecting recently. I dont have much knowledge on fossil identification and am not even sure if some of the "fossils" I've found are even fossils and not just cool looking rocks. Was just hoping people more knowledgeable on the subject could share what they think are fossils and if they know what types they are.
  12. Hello everyone! My name is Jess. My aunts name is Carla. I got into this forum because I am trying to better educate myself so I can help my aunt learn about fossils and prehistoric life. She is paralyzed and is also deaf/mute. She got hooked on all things fossils when she started watching Cris on Youtube. I'm doing my best to help her grow her collection with limited funding. I did get her a PaleoPack and she loved it. Fossildude19 (Tim) mentioned that I should post on here to see if anyone had any fossils they could send her way.
  13. Hi All, I have recently started my fossil collection, I am still figuring out what I really enjoy and what fits in my budget, but atleast trilobites really got my interest. I have some experience in collecting in general and I decided to buy nice specimens, especially for the common trilobites, rather than starting off with less preserved ones and having to upgrade them in the future. I want to share my first two trilobites: If anyone has any opinions and information about them, please do not hesitate to do so! My knowledge is still small in the fossil world.

  16. Today while at the beach with the kids I came across this amongst the stones. I know that it's a shark tooth but that's all I know as much help as possible would be fantastic to identify it please. Location Gosport, Hampshire UK I have a few more pictures if needed. Many thanks in Advance
  17. Hi I recently purchased an air scribe, it's late, I can't remember the kind right now however it's highly recommended by you folks on this site, off brand but good. Anyways it makes a really high pitch whining sound like air escaping from a balloon and Air comes out around the rubber gasket by the tip. I don't know what it's supposed to sound like, or how it preforms to be able to troubleshoot further. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks in advance.

    Preparation tips?

    I was able to find this guy over the weekend and am really interested in prepping him. From what I have read air scribes tend to be the best but from initially looking they are a bit more than I would like to spend, especially this new into the process. I was wondering if anyone thinks a Dremel or something would work decently? I have some other things like brachiopods that I can practice on and I plan on using a dental pick or needle once I get super close to the fossil. Does anyone have experience with using Dremmels to get down close to the fossils?
  19. You thought I was done? NOPE! Here are some localities in the US. Some of these are going to take some searching for. http://fossilspot.com/index.html
  20. I have had to move to different collecting localities due to coronavirus. I used to find new, promising, localities. I hope it will help you as much as it has helped me! https://paleobiodb.org/#/
  21. Popular movie makers decided that the real life of one of the most important paleontologists ever, Mary Anning, was not interesting enough when they created the movie, Ammonite, to be released in September in Cannes, France. The makers decided that they could spice things up by turning the movie into a fictional romance. I kind of wish that PBS or the BBC could have made it instead. Be careful when learning history with something made by popular movie makers. EDIT: My gosh. I see that the BBC did help to produce this movie partially shot on location in Lyme. Hopefully this semi fi

    First finds

    Hey guys, I’m Logan and I’m brand new here. I just got home from a dive in mingo creek down in South Carolina. It’s about An hour ride from the beach and it’s black water. I found 3 teeth that I would like to identify with y’alls help. Tooth #1 Tooth #2 Tooth #3 I’m thinking there bison but again I’m new to all of this. Also I’m sorry if the pictures aren’t perfect. Hopefully I’ll find more stuff to practice with on my next dives.
  23. I'm a huge fan of the 'abelisaurids' and while searching for any news on the lumbering predators I found this report on the new genus 'eoabelisaurus'. It shows a lot of features of late Cretaceous abelisaurs, despite coming from the early Jurassic, before the likes of allosaurus. Enjoy! http://blog.everythingdinosaur.co.uk/blog/_archives/2012/06/04/new-species-of-abelisaurid-described.html
