  1. As the winter this year is not very harsh, on Saturday I ventured to a location quite close to my home - I learned about it during the last fossil fair It's a sand pit - well, sort of, as it extracts sand from the bottom of the Vistula River - and according to the fossil seller who told me about it, it is the place where one can find Pleistocene fossils. We were warned to stay clear of the pipes, because of falling stones, but we were allowed to browse the piles of whatever was filtered out from the sand
  2. Hello everyone, I recently received two pieces of brachiopod fossils from Poland, both come from the Eifelian in Grzegorzowice. The first piece contains a number of small productids, I am not sure about the IDs but they do look quite similar to Poloniproductus varians that I have seen come from that area so I am wondering if that is what they are. And the next brachiopod is some kind of Athyrid? I wasn't able to find any similar species from this location. I would appreciate any help with identifying these, Thank you for looking!

They show a preorbital length much shorter than orbit diameter. The head is rounded, with an antero-dorsally oriented mouth. The lower jaw joint is located far posterior to the posterior-most margin of the orbit. The maxillary is slender throughout. There is no indication of a supram

    New Jurassic site

    Hello, I made this trip actually yet in 2020, on December 29th, but I didn't have time to post it earlier. I went to Sulejów, which is a former limestone mine now flooded with water: Nearby there is an active mine, but they don't let in fossil hunters Anyway, I was hoping that the water level would be low enough to permit browsing the slopes and it was so - of course not in every place. Some parts of the reservoir are overgrown and not very accessible: There were however a few slopes where I could go closer to the water level and brow

    New Miocene site

    Hello everyone, two weeks ago I went for a short fossil hunting trip - first a Devonian location, which I believe I have already presented, then the Silurian one - also reported before. The last place was a Miocene site that I have never visited before. It's called Smerdyna and is referred to locally as a "little grand canyon" As you can see on the map, it streches for more than 3 km - it's like a huge crack in the middle of flat land: From the ground level it looks like this:

    What is it?

    Hello, These are fossils I found during my recent visit to the Pleistocene site. Any idea which animal it could belong to?

    Could this be wood?

    Hello Everyone, today I went again to my favourite Pleistocene site - and a friend of mine found something that he thinks could be a fossilised wood. He thinks it could have been brought here by the glacier. It looks like this: It's not very big, as you can see - but quite heavy. Does this look like wood to you? I will appreciate your feedback.

  24. Hi everyone, I'm new here and I hope I can find identification with the help of this forum, I don't know much about fossil, I'm interested in everything that's old and in history in general. This summer my 5y old son found the attached bone(?) at a beach in Poland (city of Sopot) and i didn't thought much about it. Yesterday I used Google lense and it displayed other similar bones of raptor(?) Toe bones. Maybe you guys know more about it, i thank you in advance for your help. My son is super interested in dinosaur of course and i try to give him

    Fish Aspirations!

    One of the rarest and most unique fossils are aspiration pieces! I have been very lucky in acquiring 2 over the course of collecting, neither are incredibly good, but their rarity alone makes them that much more desirable! I would love to see anyone else's fish with eyes bigger than their stomachs!
