  1. So I decided that I would finally make a point of documenting some of these back country field excursions, and made a Youtube channel to keep the videos all in one place. Here's a a rather ordinary extraction of a placenticeras ammonite found the day before we did a little field work with some paleontologists. The GoPro is a fun addition to my kit, and makes it a lot easier to document the actual process of finding and extracting these things in the field. Anyway, I'll let the video speak for itself - enjoy! (click the image to open video link)
  2. Hello all, I recently found this strange fossil within a sandstone concretion from the late Campanian marine Bearpaw formation. I'm very familiar with the typical ammonites and other molluscs of the formation, and haven't seen anything like this - is it some sort of nautiloid, or something else entirely? Thanks.
  3. Hello everyone, A few weeks ago I came across this fossil in the field, and couldn't make ends of what it could be. The locality that it was found in represents a shallow marine lagoon environment, deposited in the late Campanian marine Bearpaw formation of SK. Typical finds at that locality (all within sandstone concretions) include nacreous mollusks, as well marine vertebrate material and decapods which are preserved as glassy black, similar to this specimen. Because of this, I'm inclined to think that this fossil is either from a vertebrate, or possibly a chitinous o
  4. Last summer, on the last day of a long weekend of backcountry fossil hunting around Lake Diefenbaker, Saskatchewan, my friend and I decided to stop our canoe at a beach where on a previous morning I had found a large baculites cuneatus specimen. This beach was an outcropping of a unit of the Bearpaw formation known as the Demaine sand, and dated roughly to the late Campanian. The locality was chock full of golfball to softball-sized nodules, each with a delicate, coalified fossil inside, ranging from crustacean parts, chips of driftwood, to loose vertebrae. It wasn't long before I was looking
  5. Hi I decided to make this since the new Tyrannosaur from Alberta’s Foremost Formation, Thanatotheristes deerootorum has just been named and described. Enjoy!! Tyrannosaur bearing Formations in Canada: Formations in Alberta but most of the Formations on my list are I Alberta anyway. Horseshoe Canyon Formation 74-68 million years ago, Alberta: Albertosaurus sarcophagus, possibly Daspletosaurus sp. but no compelling evidence so far. Oldman Formation 78.2-77 million years ago, Alberta: Daspletosaurus torosus, Gorgosaurus sp. Foremost
  6. Grasslands National Park, in south Saskatchewan, will be having five days in August where small groups of 12 people can go to digs with paleontologists from the Royal Saskatchewan Museum (RSM), and McGill University. See the link below if you might be interested: https://www.pc.gc.ca/en/pn-np/sk/grasslands/activ/ff1 I'm thinking about it, but it is almost a 3.5 hour drive to the location for myself.
  7. I thought I would share this info for those in Saskatchewan, Canada, wondering about the permit required to legally collect fossils in this province. I requested information from the provincial government, and this is what I have been provided with: A permit is required for collecting fossils in Saskatchewan. The “Palaeontological Avocational Applications” can be found here: https://www.saskatchewan.ca/residents/parks-culture-heritage-and-sport/heritage-conservation-and-commemoration/archaeology/palaeontological-avocational-applications On this webpage, you will
  8. Hello, hello! I'll be posting in the member introduction next, but I thought I would do this first. I am a Saskatchewan-ian, but have only ever found two fossils in Saskatchewan. A small limestone bivalve imprint in the Swift Current creek, Swift Current; and a nice sized 3/4 ammolite shell south of Gull Lake, in a pasture (I don't remember the exact location). I have found most of my collection in BC (Vancouver island, Comox valley), but am unsure where to begin here at home. I have read over our major fossil finds, T-Rex for the win!, but unsure where to begin.

    New Tylosaurus

    I thought the mosasaur fans here might enjoy a fairly recent bit of mosa-research… This paper describes the very well preserved skull and associated postcrania (a few vertebrae, some pectoral and pelvic girdle elements, a partial forelimb and a hindlimb) of a new tylosaurine mosasaur species, Tylosaurus saskatchewanensis. The holotype material of this tylosaur is from the Upper Campanian (Late Cretaceous) Bearpaw Formation of Saskatchewan, Canada. The paper: Jiménez-Huidobro et al. 2018 new Tylosaurus species.pdf A sneak peak at some of the material described (articula

  11. Good day to all, Figured Id post my last two hiking trips together. Moving from small coral fossils in the river bed to much larger and defined fossils in the banks. Hard work does pay off. Ive put a lot of miles on; Whether it be bent over looking up and down riverbeds to gazing at hillsides for anything that pops out. Slowly, with a little research and time out in the field my finds just keep getting better. I stumbled onto a nice bank, which is providing most of these finds here. Some in concretions and some not. Tell me what you think! Thanks, Dyl
  12. Just another hike with some more finds! Another great day in my books

    River Bed Hike

    Went for a hike this morning to a river bed, which has been eroding from spring run off. mother nature doing the work for me. Found a number of great coral fossils, couple pieces of small petrified wood and some shell fragment. Almost threw it away but decided to keep it. Ive been out multiple times this late winter and early spring to look but haven't been to successful, just the odd random little piece of fossil but today was a good day in my books.

    can anyone ID these?

    Hello everyone, these are a few of the many fossils we've collected in a cut of exposed gravel near the Moose Jaw river. I've never seen ones like these before and couldn't find any info on the interweb. any idea what i'm looking at? brian

    Is this a fossil or ?

    We found this strange rock on our farm near Swift Current not far from the South Saskatchewan River in Saskatchewan Canada. Does anyone have a clue as to what it is? Thanks, Tyler
  17. On occasion I'm asked about collecting regulations in Ontario and other provinces. This got me thinking what are the regulations across Canada. Listed below are various regulations pertaining to fossil collecting in different provinces across Canada. The information is merely an amalgamation of different sources with the sources linked or stated. I do not have the legal training to state whether fossil collecting is legal or not in each province but have put forth information that can help one come to a conclusion. Collecting fossils in Canada Fossils hold a great deal of scientific signific
