    Bison bone?

    Hey Everyone, Found this yesterday out at the NSR. Although there were a quite a few modern bones around. I think it was a calf that died due to the skull I found. This stood out as being close in color to the other bison bone I found. Mass is much more than the modern bones found. Also had some of the black soil in it. I did the burn test and no smell. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Potomac river Virginia fossil ID help

    Guys any help on these would be great. 2 are some sort of black shell fossils? The other appears to maybe be a jaw bone? You can see it's missing a few teeth maybe. Just never found these before so curious what they might be. Thanks in advance.

    Couple NSR To Identify

    Hey Everyone, Went to NSR yesterday. Didn't have a whole lot of luck. Some others I ran into did. I have two pieces. One I think is petrified wood but would like verification. It is not like the normal pieces you find there and rather large also. Other I am thinking might be coral of some type. Thanks in advance for any help.

    Pholodomya lincemani?

    Hey Every, I saw this last week while out at the NSR. There is a new exposed area about 20 feet up and saw this and an ammonite in the same exposure. It is right above the grey matrix. I got the ammonite but the slope was too wet last week. It was like ice skating trying to get to it. Got it today! Want to make sure my identification is correct and see how big these things got. I have the same species or similar next to it in a pic. Both found today. Same species maybe?
  5. Hey everyone, Thought I would show my finds from a great trip to NSR on 3-13-2021. I was able to find a an area that has not been picked. Had a really good time. Find a few new items to add to my collection. Over 50 bone pieces. Eight verts of different sizes and degrees of weathering. Hoping that ammonite would of been whole but no luck there. I really like the clam stienkern. I have found a similar species in San Antonio but not this large and not this color. I pulled it out of the grey matrix. Is it Arctica roemeri or Protocardia texana?
  6. For those of you that hunt rivers and creeks in the Midwest how often do you find horse remains? These three humeri were all found within a 2-mile stretch of a river within about a two year period - along with many other random tarsals, a femur, multiple tibia, and several teeth...
  7. So, springs a happenin and I had two opportunities to float the Kaw river, a shallow, shifting sand bar river meandering through central Kansas to western Missouri where it connects to the Missouri river. My first trip a couple weeks ago focused on the macro pleistocene fossils, a bison ulna, astralagus, phalanges, ribs, metatarsals, busted scapula, calcaneous, and various vertebral bodies , some chert flakes from early hominids, pieces of fossil wood, etc. The

    NSR Unknown 2-25-2021

    Hi Everyone, Found this morning at North Sulfur River, Delta County, TX. First pic is one side. Third pic the other. Any idea?

    Irish River Fossil?

    I have no idea if this is even a fossil, but this looks unlike any rock I’ve ever seen and I’d really appreciate some clarification on what it could be? I’m pretty sure I found it in a river near Scariff, County Clare, Ireland.

    Modern or prehistoric?

    Hey everyone, Been awhile since I posted about identifying anything but I do have a few since I am trapped in the . Finally got most of my stuff sorted. I found this at the NSR in Delta County after the heavy rains a few weeks back. Although there can be bones found from cows fairly frequently this stood out. It was cover in the dark soiled like it was just released. I have only used water and a toothbrush. Hollow center was pretty challenging as the black dirt was tough to remove. I have done the burn test and no hair smell. It is heavier then I would expect it to be

    North Texas Ammonites

    Hey Everyone, Ammonites are my favorite. Gastropods are a close second. I live near Rockwall, tx and hoping to find an area to get some decent ammonites. I have search, Lake Worth, Lake Texoma, several creeks and NSR. I can normally find something in NSR but they are small and broken. I have a nice one from Texoma, 14" in or so, but I see all the videos of private creeks, etc. Anyone have a spot they are willing to give some information on. Planko
  13. Hey all, I've got a beautiful plate from Green River containing two Priscaceras. The stone itself however is kind of ugly, and I'd like to at least egalize the colours of the stone if possible. Would that be possible, and how could I do that? How about slightly scuffing the stone itself?

    Fossil Lycophytes from Texas

    Hey Everyone, I need some help. Still not sure but think this might be a fossil piece of Lycophytes or similar species. Found North Sulfur River in Delta County, Tx about two weeks ago. I cannot find anything online that shows that this species or similar was in Tx. My web hunting skills are not the best in the world though. Any responses are greatly appreciated.

    Possible petrified wood?

    Hello we have had tremendous amounts of rain where I am, causing the rivers to run wild Andalusia areas to flood. now that it has subsided, I like to go and look for unique things I’m the rivers (gold too ) ove always collected things because they look different or they have a beauty about them. a lot of the hillside along the river has been exposed and there we’re aloe of interesting things around. If I had stayed any longer though I’d have been burnt to a crisp. could anyone shed light on what these could be? I could only come up with possible petrified
  16. Found this Fossil at Big Brook in New Jersey. It is a marine fossil site and I was wondering what this object is. It has the texture of a tooth or fossilized material. The object has a cone shape with a pointy tip at the end. On the inside, the object has lines and indents running down the side in 1 direction Images

    Tooth ID

    Tooth identification needed for two separate finds. Found in Southport, NC (Brunswick County) near the Cape Fear inlet. Common place for bones too wash ashore. Teeth are a new find. Pictures below. Thanks!
  18. Hey everyone, I'm brand new to fossil preparation and want to try on a Green River knightia fossil. I'm in Canada though and have no idea where to find unprepped fossils of any kind. I feel like this is something I'd actually be good at as a hobby to get me through some winter blues. I've been obsessed with fossils since I was 3. Does anyone have an idea of where I might find unprepped Green River specimens? Thank you!
  19. Hey Everyone, If you've been able to get to the NSR lately pickings are slim. I decided to head out yesterday at sunrise for another shot. Not hopeful because last few trips I have only found a few gastropod and small teeth. Yesterday was much better. Figured I would share my two favorite finds. Trachyscaphites spiniger ammonite covered in calcite Nice size gastropod semi-covered with calcite.

    Potential fossil sites

    I have been doing some Google maps searching for sites that may yield a fossil or two. I found a few sites that look to me to have potential. Fortunately they are close to my house. I put the coordinates into my marine GPS and I am prepared to go take a look. What is your perception of these Google images from a fossil potential perspective?

    Hunting in Oklahoma

    A former student once told me that he hunted for fossils on the Grand River in Ok. He graduated, went to law school, and all I could remember was Grand River and fossils. My son and I were due to take my grandchildren to Coffeyville, KS to meet their mother for her holiday visitation and I thought of the Grand River. I asked and my fellow forum members listened and Grandpa pointed me in the right direction and he was right about the fossil rich area. A big thanks Grandpa! We left early so we could stop and do a little dirt kicking, but it had started raining and I am on strict order

    Is this a Fossil?

    Greetings all, first post! So I found this bone in the Olentangy River (Columbus, Ohio) the other day, sort of looked out of place? It passed the flame test, is it a fossil?

    Alum Bluff

    My family is visiting Panama City, and I was hoping to visit Alum Bluff to hunt fossils. I read about quite a few people hunting there. To be on the safe side, I e-mailed the Nature Conservancy, since it is my understanding they own the property. Well, they said NO: "Fossil collecting is prohibited at our Preserve properties. I do hope you will hike our Garden of Eden Trail, the weather has been great! Thank you and if you have any questions feel free to contact us." Well, we are disappointed. I don't know the laws about ownership of riv

    Flowrock with a fossil

    I think I finally found a fossil within a piece of flowrock!?!?!? Found in the same area as the other flowrock pieces in N central Ohio, in a river. Nothing superb but I’m excited! Looks like a shell to me- right? Thanks!
