    Is this a tetrapod trackway?

    My father pointed this possible trackway on a sandstone paving stone on his front walk. I don't know the source of the rock. It looks clearer in person than on the images. There are several possible tracks in sequence- I took a picture of the only one that looks mostly complete (last image, with quarter). Other pavers in the path have odd marks that look sort of like drag marks from vegetation, bubbles, or worm or crab tracks. (not pictured on this post). What do you all think?
  2. This is the first description of the first dinosaur fossils in Palestine in the Levant. Which turns out to be a tracksite in Al-Bireh likely belonging to an Ornithopod (Trackway1) and a Theropod (Trackway2) with 6 other trackways also mapped using photogrammetry. The possibilities of some being of a Sauropod is entertained but not considered likely. Also very interestingly it acts as a "how to guide" in identifying track ways with poor morphological features and how to distinguish them from other sediment traces that mimmick track ways. Despite the obviously
  3. Hello everyone! Today I ventured out to the Mazonia-Braidwood State Fish and Wildlife Area for my first time, and it was… something. This post is going to serve as both a journal of my day, and as a request for assistance as I try to figure out what exactly a concretion looks like. Once I got my permit outside the office (which is just down Huston Rd a bit from the IL-53 and Huston Rd intersection; this is for people like myself who struggled to find an address or location of the office), I headed to Mazonia south unit, where I went to fossil hunting site 3. There were not really a

    Paleontologist visit

    Had a four day visit from Spencer Lucas and Hendrik Klein to study my track finds. Lots of photography, made tracings of the tracks. They took a few truckloads of slabs for the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science and will be coming back to collect the large trackway. It was a fascinating week.
  5. I found these Rhynchosauroides trace fossil trackways well-defined in the Triassic red bed sedimentary deposits in the Newark Basin in southeastern Pennsylvania. Lincoln cent shows scale.
  6. I have recently been looking at some of my photos from trips and found photos of when I was in Alberta in 2018. I saw a photo of a Hadrosaur footprint from a trackway in Dinosaur Provincial Park that me and my brother found. I also read not to long ago that no big trackways have been found in this area so I decided to give the information and location to the Palaeontologist at the Royal Tyrrell Museum in Drumheller, Alberta. I was responded by Dr. Caleb Brown, he told me that I was most likely right and it was probably Hadrosaur. I am currently waiting for him to reply again to see what he thi

    Dinosaur Tracks

    Thought I would share some of my Acrocanthosaurus tracks in my collection from Texas. These are from the Glen Rose Formation. Anyone who has dino tracks, please feel free to post them here on this thread too...would love to see them! The associated pair are big...both over 20 inches long.
  8. If you are ever in Alaska and want to check out something cool this paper reports details of a unique association of hadrosaur and therizinosaur tracks found in the Late Cretaceous lower Cantwell Formation, Denali National Park, central Alaska Range, Alaska https://www.nature.com/articles/s41598-018-30110-8
  9. I am considering buying this fossil offered online but it's NOT on our "favorite" auction site- just straightforward purchases. I really like this, and it's not QUITE up to what is not affordable for me. It is offered as an arthropod trackway in hyporelief.

  12. Okay so I found this specimen at the Taughannock Falls in Ithaca New York. I found it at the edge of the gorge which consists of Shale, composed of slit and clay that fell onto lime mud and hardened into rock. I've done some research and it appears to be a Brittle star trace fossil formed by their arm grazing the sand floor. Although, these Brittle Star fish traces are known as "Pteridichnites biseriatus" and they have only been discovered so far in upper Devonian shales out in western and eastern Virginia. I'm not an expert but to my knowledge the Ithaca geological formation is Devonian and w
  13. Hello everyone. I am an incredibly novice fossil hunter from Pennsylvania. From where I live, it is heavy Carboniferous territory. One of the items on my bucket list is to eventually find something from a temnospondyl, even if it is nothing more than a trackway or even better - a bone fragment! Would anyone be willing to share with me advice on what to look for / or what has helped them in finding anything from a Temnospondyl or Lepospondyl? Do they appear more in certain rocks than others? I live in the Pittsburgh area, near where Fedexia was discovere
  14. Hello everyone! I am a total noob to all of this and just joined today! I've been on this website before and everyone seems very knowledgeable and helpful. Having said that, can someone help me out with this specimen? I tried to look this up online and ended up confusing myself. Initially I thought it may be referred to as Diplichnites left behind by a millipede, but another Google search led me in the direction of possibly Protichnites left behind by trilobites. Is there any way to tell (if any) what this is or what could have made it? I beli

    Might this be a trackway?

    This stone came out of a stream-bed, so no certain provenance; BUT - I'm sitting on the top of the Oneota dolomite, in extreme SE Fillmore County, SE Minnesota. Ever since I moved here, I've found blocky chunks of what I always called quartzite in nearby stream beds; often with ripple marks like this: Sorry about lack of scale, but if you look at the top of the stone, you can see a northern pin oak leaf - it's about 4 inches long. I was told when I arrived that my Oneota dolomite was overlain by the St. Peter sandstone- which has no record of rippled silicified layers. Two years ago, a

  18. Hey guys finally got a chance to finish the first print on the tracks Im casting. In theory they are Acrocanthrosaurus tracks and there are a total of 6 tracks (may be more buried). Anywho I got the original cast done then made a negative mold. Im now making positive casts of the initial track. Im still messing with the color I want but Im pretty close

  24. Hi all, sorry if this topic has already been made, but I couldn't find any threads teaching how to properly paint out fossil trackways. Basically I have a piece of Green River matrix with some bird tracks on it. As the depressions are very faint, i intend to darken the tracks the same way people often do for Grallator trackways. Any recommendation on the paint or material or method used? Thanks.
  25. I came across this today, not a bad way to start the morning! Predominantly camel, but there was also proboscidean bison, horse, and small artiodactyl tracks that were either deer or reindeer!
