  17. Spent yesterday and today out and about in my area and thought I'd snap a few pics and show. Just as context, my city's rocks are all glacial erratics from the Devonian. I didn't find very much, nor did I expect to. The photos are not of the specimens I brought home (I still need to do that), but some odds and ends from this part of the province. Saturday's location is a largely abandoned sand and gravel quarry, and was one of the last barriers of a massive lake during the last glacial period to finally break and spread till and cobble love all over this part of the p
  18. A few finds from this weekend. Fortunate enough to have a cottage on Lake Erie, fairly close to Rock Point Provincial Park which is known for it's exposed fossils of a 350 million year old coral reef. About half were found on the beach itself and the other half in the crushed gravel part of the driveway. I'd imagine the beach will keep yielding new finds after every storm, here is hoping for it anyway.
  19. Well, since moving to Ottawa, I haven't had the chance to go out fossil hunting. There wasn't a whole lot of info on the web about the geology here. So my wife and I decided to buckle up and find a spot ourselves (without any hammers or chisels). We tend to be very lucky people, but I was surprised by the THOUSANDS of trilobites we came across in a matter of 20 minutes. We were on the shoreline of the Ottawa river, we found a certain type of shale that was just crawling with them. If any lucky soul goes to the spot where we left all the remnants of our hunt, they will sure be having a good day

    What type of fossil is this?

    Found on the beach of Lake Ontario. Completely new to this, can anyone tell me what this beauty is?
  21. Hello everyone, Newbie here with a new found passion for rock collecting etc. I recently found this while out in my back garden. Does anyone have any idea what this possibility could be? Any information is appreciated.
  22. Dave Bailey

    Fossil celery?

    Well, probably not, but it looks like it. And forget the 'Point Pelee' tag, that's only where the rock was, definitely not the original location. After a lot of severe storms and erosion at the tip of the point, the shoreline has been buttressed with large limestone blocks from elswhere. In one of them we saw this protruding fossil, And took the normal crappy cel phone picture, which has been cropped and sharpened.
  23. I've been out a number of times already this year, mostly revisiting local spots until the semester is done and I can commit to more exciting locations. Some of my previous trips this month even netted another fragment of Terataspis that will need some patient prep to reveal as anything halfway decent. The snow is gone, and today saw temperatures soar to 20 degrees. A site with about a few acres of dumped mid-Devonian rock just north of me in town seemed a natural fit for the day. I had prospected it before, and generally knew what to expect: a miserable, dense, mostly blank, occas
  24. Well it has finally opened to the public on December 4rth. "The new Dawn of Life Gallery" at The ROM is perhaps the best gallery on the planet covering the earliest life to the emergence of land dwelling creatures. I was fortunate to have a tiny part in the new gallery having prepared a number of the museums specimens and also having donated and sold them some pieces . Here is a tiny taste of what you can see in the new gallery. It will not disappoint.
  25. I found this specimen in 2020 and donated it to the Royal Ontario Museum later that year. A paper is to be published very soon formally describing it! It's a roughly 7cm wide mimetasterid marrellomorph - the only marrellomorph know from the Ordovician of Canada, and one of a handful of such arthropods recorded worldwide. I found my very first trilobite in 2014. The members of this forum helped my ID it, learn more about the stratigraphy of my area and what tools to use to find more. Thanks to that base of knowledge,, the last 7 years have seen paleontology become an increas
