2022 MAPS Fossil Show- Springfield, Illinois
Nimravis posted a topic in General Fossil DiscussionHere is a quick write up on the 2022 MAPS (Mid America Paleontological Society) Fossil Show. The hotel show started on Wednesday, the day I arrived and the actual show at the Orr Building on the Fairgrounds property started this morning (Friday) and continues until Sunday afternoon.

Missouri Ozark posted a topic in Fossil IDHello. I spent a few hours looking around my land outside of Cabool, MO. I found some fossils, but first- is this anything cool?
Missouri Ozark posted a topic in Fossil IDHello again. I found these yesterday. The clam is a dead giveaway(correct?), and the one on the top left is a coral, I'm guessing. What about the rest? Any help would be great. You see, I'm a carpenter. If it were a piece of dimensional lumber, I could ID it by smell and feel alone. hahaha
Please ID this
Missouri Ozark posted a topic in Fossil IDHello from the heart of the salem plateau. I bought 20 acres outside of Cabool, MO. The plot has a few deep cuts exposing a lot of marine fossils, minerals, and such. This specimen doesn't look like anything I've seen thus far. Please help me ID this guy. Thanks and Season's Greetings.
