  1. I have no experience identifying fossils/bones, but while hiking near the Olentangy River recently, in Franklin County, Ohio, USA, I noticed what appeared to be a "thumb" consisting of three bones that appeared to have recently been uncovered as the dirt and debris surrounding the area where I noticed it was slightly disturbed. I've taken a series of pictures of it, and it appears to be possibly a thumb-like appendage, but the end bone is triangular and somewhat resembles a shark tooth. Curious if anybody may be able to identify what these bones may belong to, as I haven't the slightest clue.

    Need help identifying please

    Another find from yesterday, it also was found in creek in Muskingum County, Ohio.
  3. Buckeyes3838

    ADAM'S SILURIAN

    Hoooooooooooorrrrrrrrrrrraaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Here we are at last, into Adam's Silurian. Thanks for looking. First up is the Lower Silurian or Llandovery and I begin with a problem. I posted this one incorrectly in Adam's Ordovician as it had got it's label muddled up with an Ordovician Favosites I had that has vanished in the move here, but is being replaced by kind forum member @Herb Anyway, this, I remember now I've found the correct label, is from the greenish Browgill Formation, part of the Stockdale Group from a cutting near Skelg
  5. This morning I drove from my hotel in Lawrenceburg, Indiana into Kentucky for a little collecting (more on that on a separate post), and then I driven into Cincinnati, Ohio to attend the Dry Dredgers GeoFair 2022. This is one show that I have always wanted to attend, but never had the time. This year it worked out well since I was stopping over to do some collecting on my way home from Sanibel Island. I arrived at the show at 10:00 am and there was a huge line waiting to get in, I would guesstimate 125+ people. The show was held at the Sharonvi

    Egg Fossil

    I’m looking to get some info on this. Which I found in central Ohio.
  7. While playing outside with my grandkids I found what I thought were just fossils however discovered they’re snakes. I have quite a few pieces a lot with detailed markings but I’m not sure of species. There’s various sizes and I also found skins, tongues and teeth. Some still have stuff inside of the head. They’re also in different rock/mineral forms. I have many more of various colors, shapes and sized. Thanks for your help

    WHAT ARE THESE?

    I found these in my flower beds around my house. I've been noticing some small little fossilized type sea shells that are really tiny in general. I've also found a few other items that I'm really curious about. The first item found looks like a tooth and I'm trying to figure out if it is or not as well as if it is indeed a tooth if it is something that is prehistoric. The other few pictures look like cylindrical rocks that are the same in size and shape. They each have an end on them that looks sort of like they've been clamped and it has a indentation on that end of the rock
  9. Hello, I've been recently fascinated by large isotelus trilobites. Does anyone on here own one and would like to show and talk about it, I would if I owned one but I don't see that happening anytime soon haha. This is the largest I've seen for sale so far that would've been 8 inches, would be nice to be able to find one but I don't have that luxury.

    Caesar Creek Lake Fossil

    Greetings. I am new to the forum and this is my first post. I'm an amateur collector in Ohio who recently visited the Caesar Creek park and came back with a fossil I can't identify. Here is data about the site: Liberty and Whitewater Formations (Camp, Roadside Geology of Ohio, p. 61) Classified Ordovician Limestone and Shale The fossil is just over six centimeters long. It washed out of the formation naturally; I've done minimal preparation. The fossil has a flattened cone shape. One end has a distinct point, the surface is pitted and wrinkled (skin-like), and there
  11. Taxonomy from Lowney 1980. Diagnosis from Lowney 1980, p. 949: "The skull roof is usually ornamented faintly at the lateral borders of the dermopterotics and frontals; the center of the skull roof appears smooth. The maxilla narrows under the orbit and tapers sharply at the anterior end (Text-fig. 3; PI. 2, fig. 4). The nasals are Y-shaped, with a long posterior process. The suboperculum is equal to or larger than the operculum. The lateral line scales remain tall and serrate all the way to the caudal (P1. 1, fig. 5). There are often a few vertebral centra visible anteriorly (Text-fig. 3B

    Last minute winter trip

    Hi everyone, I only have a couple weeks before I leave for a new chapter in my life and my best bud has been asking me to take him and his boy on a trip. Ohio is only an hour away for us and is significantly warmer right now. Was wondering if anyone could tell me how bad the snow cover is and if we have a chance at some clean ground.

    Ohio Fossil

    Good morning, Tank here. I hate asking, especially when I am probably completely wrong too, but I've given myself a migraine searching through other sites. I've narrowed it down to something between anything and everything thanks to Google. I found this one, and quite a few more as well, along the bank of the Tuscarawas River in New Philadelphia Ohio. Google New Phila Hog Heaven and there is the spot I've been getting them. None are exactly alike but all appear to be somehow connected by color texture and all likenesses I guess. I just haven't any idea what I'm finding and my wife calls it Ali
  14. What better way to celebrate the end of the year than with a little fossil hunting? And the hunt ended with some spectacular stromatolites; read on! ----- When I got an itch to hit the field last month, I reached out to a quarry in Perrysburg, Ohio to collect fossil and mineralogical samples for donation to academic institutions. The quarry was kind enough to grant me permission to collect on their property for several hours in late December, so when the time came, I suited up and headed out with a trusty assistant. The quarry exposed outcrops of the Lockport and G
  15. Help with Identification of possible Prehistoric? Camel Tooth? Thank you for looking at this recent find. I found this on the banks of SE Ohio River yesterday. I used Google Lens to possibly identify this as an prehistoric camel tooth. Interestingly enough, this was found in an old trash dump? on the river with other antique broken pottery pieces. The river has widened over the years and now may envelop old dumps as the soil has eroded. Near the tooth, I found an old Indian Trade Pipe. I may be totally wrong, but I think this is a camel tooth. Many years ago, in the 1940's, I was told there wa
  16. I will be visiting family around Christmas in Northern KY and was looking at trying out Trammel Fossil Park. This will be a new type of fossil hunting for me, as I am from SC and used to creek hunting for shark teeth and other sea fossils. Has anyone been to this park and would like to give opinions/advice/ pointers? Thanks for any help! I'm excited to look for some new types of fossils! ~Shannon

    Fossil or concretion?

    Found in a river in central Ohio. The stem made me feel it might be a fossil??? It’s very hard and about the size of a tablespoon. Thanks for your help in identifying.
  18. Hello! I have been lurking on this Forum for a while because I was very busy lately and still is! I found few fossils and I thought it might be trilobits- pieces of trilobite and also something else that I thought it seems 'fishy' and somewhat resemble a fish spine. These fossils are not found in situ but the bedrocks are Silurian. If they are trilobites, it would be my first time found one! I found this on the beach of Lake Erie, just east of Toledo, Ohio two weeks ago. Approximately half centimeter. Yesterday, I found this fossil on the

    Our Great I-80 Road Trip

    Greetings, all! After exploring outcrops and spoils piles from Quebec down to Florida, we are heading west from Delaware to Crawford, Nebraska and back this fall. Planning to stop by Sylvania, OH and Clear Lake, IA. Probably Richmond, IN. Any other suggestions? Thoughts on these three?
  20. While heading to visit family in southern Indiana, I decided to leave a day early to do a bit of collecting in the Cincinnatian. The first stop was, as usual, St. Leon, to look for the famous Flexicalymene rollers. In the past, I've usually found 2-4 per visit, but was quite lucky this time, walking away with 10 rollers and my first prone. Here are a couple in situ shots. After a couple hours at St. Leon, I headed towards my hotel. As it turned out, it was just down the road from Trammel Fossil Park. I had not been here before. It ex
  21. Hello TFF friends, I recently recieved some Ordovician Brachiopods from Ohio and would love some help with getting IDs for them, First up are two Lingulid Brachiopods from the Waynesville Formation: I have not been able to find much on the brachiopods from this formation, the brachiopods also look slightly different so I am not sure if that indicates some kind of different species or these are just differences between individuals. Both are about 1.5 cm in length Next up are two rhynchonellids, these two are preserved together and are about 2 cm in width, perhaps Lep
  22. I purchased a couple of buckets of fossil/rocks from a friend who found them in the Ohio/Indiana area...which he told me was Ordovician and Silurian. Unfortunatly I've lost the paper that described where this section of fossil/rock came from. At first I thought it was a Crinoid...upon further inspection I noticed that there were patterns along with the ridges. So, I scribed it out of the rock. I noticed that one end was slightly larger than the other and that it was on the "Oval" side. There is a bit of pyritisation...especially inside the small end. So, I'm not really sure ...but I
  23. Hello everyone, I have been wondering about this for a bit but only now that I atually have one of these in my collections have I decided to ask this, All of the P. bownockeri I have seen have been pyritized and I wanted to ask why this is, I do not know of any other brachiopods like this because while there are some I have seen preserved in pyrite they are from areas where the rest of the fossils are also pyritized, from what I have seen its mostly just this species that is commonly found fully pyritized from this formation. The only thing I can think of is maybe they are found
