  1. Hello everyone, I recently got to visit the Glenerie Limestone for the second time to collect some fossils, I have identified the majority of my finds from the day except for one strange fossil I still do not understand. This appears to be a small brachiopod shell, it has a semicircular shape, and what appears to be a hinge-line on one side of it, the underside is pretty flat, but on the top, there is some other strange organism attached, it appears similar to the calyx of a coral, but these are quite rare at the site, I have no idea what this could be, maybe it isn't even a brachio

    scapula of some kind?

    Hello! I found these a few days ago while taking a brisk stroll along a very seldom utilized section of the niagara river in western new york. the larger bone was just barely poking out of the silt/mud in the water. the water level was quite a bit lower than it has been in awhile. the smaller piece was about 20 feet away mixed with some small rocks at the water's edge. in that section of the river there is a good bit of silt/mud which sits on top of a fairly thick layer of clay. both pieces feel pretty much like rock, heavy for their size and neither exhibits a burned hair smell when fla

    Is this a fossil?

    I found this in my backyard when planting a garden. I live in Eastern Long Island, on the South Fork. The fossil/rock is heavy with an irregular surface that makes me suspect it is a fossil rather than a rock. A previous owner of the property had a rock garden, so it is possible that this came from them. It was also right next to a recently constructed garage, so it might have been unearthed when the garage foundations was being built. Any help identifying it will be be appreciated. Jim
  7. We’ll figure I would have to hit Cole hill one more time before I move south in the spring doubt I’ll get back there. However would anyone like braciopods on the half shell

    Western NY Fossil ID

    Brought my kids to explore a local creek. Found this along the banks. It's a bone. I'm just unsure from what and the approximate dating. Approximately 2.5 inches. Thank you in advance!
  9. Well took a trip about a week ago ran in to another member of TFF we both did well. I’m holding up on prepping until I get some new bits in. However here is a preview of what I collected think I even scored a whole one time will tell.

    I found a tooth?

    just started rock/fossil hounding and i think i found something pretty good. rock has one large and one small looking tooth of some sort, one on each side. As well as another round creature of some sort. sorry i'm oblivious as to what these are. if anyone can give a suggestion? found in madison county ny-central area. Bigger tooth is approx. 1 1/2 inches across the top and 1 3/4 inches long. The smaller one is 1 1/4 inch across the top and 1 1/2 inches long.

    Devonian Hamilton trip

    Hi everyone, Just figured I would post a quick trip report for cole hill rd NY. I set out about 9am on Sunday about 80 degrees F , I brought plenty of water knowing it was supposed to be 97 that day. Found my spot around 10:30 or so parked my truck , started scanning the shale pit. Within 5 minutes I was finding a lot more than I expected. Kicked around about an hour found some shade picked at some shale slabs I had collected. I’m used to hot and humid weather actually I prefer it over the alternative any day. So noticed I’m starting to sweat better head over to the truck get some water.
  13. Hello Everyone, Took a trip to Rickard hill rd July 22 nd one of the better collecting days . Hot but just cannot stop enjoy the pictures. not cleaned yet as collected.
  14. My wife and I traveled up to western upstate NY this past weekend for Penn Dixie's annual dig with the experts event. This was our first visit to the park and we were happy to finally use up the tickets we had originally purchased for the 2020 dig. The event was sold out both days and the staff seemed happy to be back in normal operations. The weather was perfect, with bright sunny skies and temps in the 50s to 60s day 1 and 60s to low 70s day 2. Lots of folks digging: We didn't find anything crazy good, but didn't get blanked with a mix o

  16. Hi all, not sure if anyone can help with this. A long time ago (like 35 plus years) I went on a fossil hunt. I was little but believe it was somewhere in New York. We went for a hike in palisades on the same day. We picked these oyster shells and were under the impression ever since that they’re fossilized. They are hard and heavy. I would value any input anyone may have about them. Thanks in advance.

    NY Middle Devonian ID Help

    Today I finished searching through some matrix a friend sent me from the Alden Pyrite Beds (Middle Devonian; Ludlowville Formation, Ledyard Shale). I found a bunch of cool Tornoceras goniatites, several Ambocoelia brachiopods, and even a tiny enrolled Greenops and Eldredgeops. I also found a couple fossils that I have not been able to identify yet. I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on what they could be. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much! #1- 3mm in size #2- 1cm in size- looks like some type of Nuculid (note the teeth)
