    How Do You Measure Up?

    There is nothing like a good scale in a photo, and they can also be a problem. Sometimes they'll blow out a photo with reflections, or cause unwanted focus issues. I've seen a lot of different types of rulers and scales on the Forum, many of them are great. Easy to read, easy on the eyes, easy on the camera. Brushed metal seems to work well, also wooden rulers. Measuring fossils and making scales with Photo Editing Software is also a very nice clean way to go...and of course there are coins. Here are a couple I have used, as well as a "Photo Scale Cube". The GSA and Society for Sedimentary
  2. Hi people! I'm a PhD student studying a Duckmantian fossil forest in North Wales. I have found these phosphatic fish/shark? teeth and scales I need an ID on. I suspect they are Adamantina Foliacea (Cuny and Stemmerik 2018) but that is a marine shark and this sequence is almost certainly completely freshwater and thought to be an upland swamp. I'm currently doing isotope work on the nodules and plant fossils and that appears to be confirming this is a completely freshwater system. Anyone have any ideas? You'll have to click on the images again once you've opened them to
  3. In this post I am going to show you a couple examples of fish related fossils that are found at Mazon Creek. Many of these are my finds and many are from my fossil mentor. The pics are zoomed up, I apologize for that, but I mounted my fossils (pairs) on white cardboard, so I do not want to pull them off and have to reattach them. First up is a lamprey - Mayomyzon pieckoensis. This lamprey was collected at Pit 11. Next up are a 3 examples of the Jawless fish- Gilpichthys greenei . These fish were found at Pit 11.

    Purchased Fish

    A local rocks, minerals, and fossils store recently went under some renovations and increased in size by quite a lot. However, according to the employees, lots of the fossil identification/location information was somehow lost during the remodeling, and so they were selling off many of their fossils for cheap to clear room for new inventory. Plus there was a good sale on fossils going on. As the title states, I purchased this fish because I thought it looked interesting, but I was wondering if anyone here had any idea of what it might be. Secondly, are there any guides f
  5. Found in a roadside cut on Goat Island, just north of Manitoulin Island's swing bridge. A layer of hexagonal "scales" overlaying a branched structure. What is this? I have no idea what I'm looking at! Also the top corner has a small ribbed structure which seems to be separate from the rest. If someone has an ID for this as well, that'd be amazing!

    Scales, arm and a claw.

    Hi Guys, First of all, I'm not a fossil hunter, so forgive my vagueness. I stumbled across this about fifteen years ago whilst exploring an abandoned quarry in the North East of the UK. I can't remember exactly where it was, as I was only 15 at the time and had quite a poor sense of direction! It's quite interesting as it seems to have scales, and arm and a claw. Let me know what you guys think!
  7. I collected this fossil many years ago as a kid, from a very rocky creek bed in Gorman, Texas. North Central Texas. No idea as to the geological age of the area. The "scales" have a slightly curved face that rises from the center to the sides, but not front and back. They also seem to be leaned on top of another similar to how normal scales are, all pointing the same direction. Almost looks as though the back side of the specimen has bone fragments visible? To my untrained eye, this what I assumed. From my own research, so far I assume it could be from a fish

    Possible fossil found?

    I found what I believe to be a fossil the other day in the Fox River. I can only dream corner of whatever I might have found, but it appears to be scales or skin? How should I proceed to expose the rest without damaging what might be under the rest of this layer. This is unlike any other fossil I have found.

    Reptile Skin Fossil?

    Hi all! I have this fossil (at least I'm fairly certain it's a fossil lol) that I've had for a very long time now but I haven't been able to figure out what it is. It came into my possession through some weird means, long story short a classmate of mine from first grade found it out in the middle of our elementary school field (this was about 12-13 years ago) and gave it to me because I was known as the "dinosaur kid". Because it was just sitting in the middle of a grassy field I suspect that it was moved from its original location, possibly by a kid or a construction worker when the school wa

    Scale tree?

    I found this in a spoils area of a strip area. Someone said it's from a scale tree. Can anyone confirm this. I clear coated it, that's why it's shiny.

    What about this one?

    Found this in my back yard under a pile of rocks. I see scales, a skull with 2 horns, a mouth, the fossilized brain stem, and even a hole where the spinal chord would be.

    Unidentified online fossil

    Got this off online, because I thought it was pretty cool looking. Seller didn't know what it was and described it as a reptile. I don't think it's an alligator. I am fairly certain it is some sort of fish, and that the bottom of the fish is exposed. There was no locale given, I only know it shipped from Minnesota.

  16. Hello! I found these beautiful scales inside a calcium phosphate nodule from Muncie Creek Shale. I believe this fish regurgitation might have some identifiable scales and I would love to know if anyone can nail down an exact species!

    Fish scales?

    What are these? Are these fish scales? Some look like denticles to me, but way too big. I really just don’t know. They may be from Kem Kem. I believe these entire pieces are just like a couple inches at the most, which should give you an idea of the size of the “scales”. If anyone can ID the actual species, that’d be awesome, but I’m actually asking more what they ARE, than what they’re FROM. As always, thank you so much for any help!
  19. Looking to have growths id present on late cretaceous wood. The growths are the scales present on the wood. They appear to have been growing between wood layers. Wood is partly carbonized and not fully mineralized. Wood was drift wood mixed in with baculites and scaphites. Fossil taken in situ from upper part of Kevin mb of Marias Fm in Montana.
  20. I cover 5 counties in SW Mo for my job, and always go fossil hunting. Always crinoinds and their bedmates, unilt this. Low water crossing washed out, so I went hunting. I found this unique fossilation of something. The rock I drug home is 2' x 18". No other fossils except those pictured, anywhere else on the rock. There is another grouping of this same still in the creek, except still attached to creek bottom, that I cannot remove. This was found in Bryant Creek, east of Ava, Missouri in Douglas County. My thinking is possibly some type of foliage? There are
  21. Hi everyone , Since we’re on lockdown, I’ve been processing the little amount of micro matrix I had and a few interesting things have shown up. I’m mainly on the hunt for teeth but they are rather scarce and most of the matrix is composed of shell fragments. Some of the stuff I’ve been finding is crinoid stars, Bryozoans and fish scales. Most of this stuff is tiny and I actually can't tell what it is until I put it under the microscope. I’d be very grateful if you could ID some of the pieces as well. Here’s some of what I’ve found. I have more pictures but will post tomorrow. He
  22. Hi Everyone, I’ve been living down in Texas with my family instead of my usual location in Missouri, and had a free day to go to the North Sulfur River (NSR). I had no idea my family lived so close to such a fun location to fossil hunt. I had a great time and have been trying to find the identity of a few of the fossils I found. I know identification posts are generally individually done, but since they were all found at the same location I decided to group them into one post. Hope that's not too against forum rules. Anyway, I’d love y'alls thoughts on what they might be! All

    Looks like something

    Hello all. I am no expert, just curious. I visited Greenbrier County West Virginia last July and picked up a few rocks along the banks of the Greenbrier River. After inspecting this one, I found what appears to be scales along its surface and a foot (arrow pointing). I have a lepidodendron root my uncle gave me the 1980s and it made me interested in fossils, just wondering if anyone can tell me what I’m looking at. Either way it’s a pretty neat find for me. If I should post more pictures, let me know. Thanks for any and all help!
