  1. so just recently i was going on a trip to look for fossils, trilobites specifically. On the trip i was able to find plenty of goodies; brachiopods, bryozoa, etc… But i never found any trilobites—well, except a possible pygidium. I did my digging at Savanna, IL, which from what I could find was known for finding lots of trilobites; and complete ones at that. Was I doing something wrong on my trip? I guess what i’m asking is there some way to more easily find trilobite fossils? Like, is there a way to tell what areas are likely to have trilobite fossils or what rocks wou

    Please Help with Fossil ID

    Hi, I am new to this, so before this goes in the planter, I wanted to see if I could get an idea of what, if anything, I have. I located this in the San Bernardino County area of CA, private land, Mojave Desert, hills next to a wash, as you see it. I followed the instructions on this site, but pics may not be good. I can add more. If this is nothing or something I can keep, either way I appreciate everyone 's time. If I'm missing anything, please let me know. Thank you!
  5. Found these on our property and curious as to what they are
  6. I'm new to fossil hunting but have found some items that have ignited my interest in this field please help me identify if possible.

    Atlas Vertebrae from Bison?

    Hello new friends, My family just returned from a trip to Edisto Beach South Carolina, USA. We were walking the beach between Jeremy's Cay and the Pavilion looking for shells and shark's teeth when we almost tripped over this specimen. Based on image searches, it appears to be an atlas vertebrae possibly from a Bison. I am interested in a proper ID and learning as much as I can about it. I am attaching images, but if you need more information or better images, please let me know. I really appreciate any help you can give.

    Fossil haul from Aust Cliff (UK)

    Hello all! Had a good day out at Aust Beach in the UK, one of the countries more productive sites for Triassic and Carboniferous fossils and need help with some identification.
  10. Hi I am totally new to buying fossils online and need a bit of hand-holding. Dear experts: would you say this is fake or real?
  11. Hello everybody, I have question that I always wanted to ask,but it was so dumb that I always avoided asking it. However,curiosity was stronger and I finally decided to go for it and ask it. OK,I would like to know how can someone who collects fossils learn more about fossils he got and find out more about that particular specimen? Is there any sort of ''study'' that can be done with some fossilized specimen like etc. seashell in matrix that would provide more information about that specimen as well as specie? I would like to know more about fossils I have,but t
  12. Fossils found in this area are from the Cambrian Pennsylvanian, and Cretaceous Periods. What is it? That’s for any help! My foot is there for size reference. Maybe 6? Inch diameter
  13. This link explains the geology of my area. https://www.mtsu.edu/glade-center/gladehistory.php I’m happy to have found this forum as I’m a newbie and would be so grateful for your help w/identification of these fossils I’m finding here in Middle Tennessee, USA. My friend has a creek in her front yard full of these Ordovician (??) sea creature fossils. This is my favorite so far but I’m not sure what it is. Someone in a FB group said it could be a cephalopod cross section? I’m seeing eyes and shrimp. There are even shades of violet on one spot
  14. Usually dig in rivers, so very newbie to this. First time to badlands. Watched a youtube and the paleontologist is squirting some kind of glue on a tooth before they try to remove it from the earth to prevent it from breaking. What is that glue?
  15. Hi all, first post and newbie collector so appologies if this is posted in the wrong place. On a Recent trip to Dorset these were found and I’d love some input on the best way to prepare these. One is large and I as tempting as it was to just have at it with the hammer and chisel, I suspect more interesting things may be lurking in there. The others are much smaller and may need something like an air scribe?? Recommendations on that line appreciated also. thank you in advance for any help/tips/recommendations.
  16. Hello All, (WARNING: FIRST TIME CRAB PREP AHEAD) A friend of mine came across a small concretion (2.5") on a marketplace website and picked it up for me. It was already cracked open right across the equator, and exposed a small crab. (I'm assuming from Washington State but anyone that can weigh-in on the species is appreciated.) As per the pictures, the Crab itself has the body and the claw separated into different halves of the split. Reading up on the forum I decided to glue the concretion back together and air scribe my way back down to the Crab in the hopes of conso
  17. Hey guys! I'm new to the forum and have something neat to share that came from Hockley Valley Ontario. I found a descent sized piece of what I believe is fossiliferous limestone. This was in a clearing on my property near Hockley Village! I had posted it on mindat.org which some kind people had directed me here to help further identify the fossils in it and maybe learn more about this specimen. We deduced that it was likely limestone but with some hard silica in it as it was able to mark glass. The rocks dimensions are 17 × 12.5 × 4.3cm and it weighs roughly a pound (I don't have a precise sca
  18. Hi Everyone, I'm very new to fossil hunting and was considering going down to Cory's Lane in RI as it's only about 40 minutes from me. I scoped the place out on Google Maps and have some questions for anyone that's hunted there. Do you need a permit to fossil collect in RI? It looks like you can't collect in state parks, but I don't think this area is a state park. I'm actually not even sure if it's town property or private? Google wasn't much help and I'm not really sure which department it would fall under to go through state websites. Are people actually

    Calvert Beachcombing Tips?

    Hi guys! So I'm planning to go back to one of the Calvert County beaches to try my luck again- I haven't had any success with finding teeth bigger than about a quarter inch and I'm hoping to find something a little bigger next time. My current technique is to dig up sand from the water and sift through it super carefully- should I switch it up and try something different to find big teeth? If so, does anyone have any recommendations for how to find them? And, final question, which beaches are good for finding larger specimens? I know Purse and Matoaka are good for quantity but I don't know whi
  20. Hey Folks, Going through some photos from earlier this month. I never kept this rock. But upon looking at this pic more and more...did I toss a megalodon tooth?! Or is this just some kind of cool looking rock? E&B - The forever newbies.

    No idea

    Hello all, newbie here. Primarily a artifact/rock hunter, I find all sorts of fossils here in So. Illinois, usually cronoid related. I think. Anywho, any ideas on this guy, this is on a scraper/tool.
  22. Does anyone have a recommendation for published keys to help identify tree species from petrified wood? I'm finding a lot of it and would like to not pester everyone here constantly, but would also really like to know more about the ancient environments I'm exploring. Any tips much appreciated! Happy New Year everyone. TFF definitely a highlight!
  23. I found this on a beach in Massachusetts. I've attached images of several angles of a single specimen. Its dimensions are roughly a 6 cm cube. To be honest, I do not even know if it is a bone, but that is my best guess. Thank you for any help in identifying it. Adam
