  1. My annual information topic on the Tucson Fossil Show. Right now it looks like 43 different shows if you are including Gems, Minerals and Fossils. The latter being the smallest segment of the Show but the coolest . For those of you who went to this years show I don't expect much of a change but we still have a bit of time to go. Unfortunately the show has evolved from from a couple of close venues to now being all over the place. Just take more time and patience with parking. When to arrive: My suggestion is when the dealers open . This will give you the best opportunity

    Tucson 2022 Finds

    Hello all! I’ve just gotten home from Tucson, it was a great show. Having taken a 5+ year hiatus on fossil collecting, this was a wonderful return to the community, and getting to talk to some of the kindest and most knowledgeable people in the world. While there was much less as far as fossils go compared to the last time I went, I found some really good things to add to my ever growing collection. Prognathodon Currii Tooth Morocco 2 1/2 in or 6 1/2 cm Dromaeosaurid Tooth (Unknown Species) Tegana Formation, Tafallit Morocco 2 1/2 in or 6 1/2 cm

    Tucson 2022

    I made a whirlwind trip up to Tucson to deliver some prepped fossils and pick up another load of pieces to work on. I spent a day at the show, talking with dealers and drooling over the great fossils. The cherry on top was picking up my new, German engineered, HW-70 airscribe. This thing is amazing. It will blast away matrix at 30 psi and can operate on pressures as low as 3 psi. I made some great contacts while I was there and I’m going to have some cool stuff coming out of the Global Paleo Services lab in the future. More to come; now I gotta get prepping!

    Honey bee?

    Morning folks. I have another item from my unidentified drawer and I'm hoping someone can help identify it. This was part of a lot sale from the 2002 Tucson show with no descriptions, it was from estate sale being sold by a friend. All I know is he collected many west coast items. The actual "honey bee" is 21mm long and 20mm wide. Any help is appreciated.
  5. Some nice pyritized specimens acquired in Tucson. Caryosyntrips like frontal appendage. (2cm) Another raptor claw from unknown arthropod (1cm) Classic Beecher's Trilobite Bed mortality plate

    Ammonite species ID help

    Good evening folks. I have an unidentified ammonite from the Tucson Mineral Show, that's all the information I have. Does anyone know what the larger species is? I believe the small, white item was glued on.

    Tucson 2019 Pictures

    So I got back from Tucson a few days ago and thought I'd post some pictures for all to see! Pictures got downloaded out of order when I had to shrink the size to make them compatible for the forum. Sorry I can't ID everything for you guys like @Troodon did last year. Enjoy! Let's start with my favorite topic... eggs! French Eggs: A perfect and complete raptor nest from China: A very rare and complete elephant bird egg from Madagascar: Duck Egg:

    Snyder Hill BLM area in Tucson

    Good afternoon everyone, Visiting Tucson, AZ for a week and on the old Fossil Index it list Snyder Hill with 'abundant fossils', I believe the BLM campsite is centered on Snyder Hill , but having scoured the hill pretty well I am busted on any fossils. Am i missing something ? Is there a certain area of the hill that is better than the others? Is it a different Snyder Hill? Thanks, Cc
  10. I’m looking for info on all the best fossil shows to visit for Tucson this year. Last year I made the mistake of going for the final weekend of the show and I missed most of the fossil shows. My job has moved me and I now visit the Tucson area almost weekly so I’m hoping to see as much as possible. Thanks in advance!
  11. I am planning a trip to Tucson 2020. The Tucson website says the event goes from 1-16 Feb. I have no experience going there so I would have to ask you experts some questions: 1) How many days should I spend if I am only interested in fossils? 2) When should I arrive at Tucson? A few days before? On the opening day of 1 Feb? Or should I go nearer to the end to get better deals? 3) Where's the closest place to Tucson where I can legally dig for fossils? I was considering Texas. 4) Any other general tip or advice?

    Tucson show questions

    I am thinking of attending a Tucson fossil show this year. Could someone please share recommendations as to which days/which shows would be the best to attend? (I can be there for 2 days max) My primary interests are reptiles, dinosaurs and sharks.
  13. Here is The Association of Applied Paleontological Sciences online guide for fossil dealers and other paleo related info for the 2019 Tucson (Arizona) fossil, gem and mineral shows. The guide lists dealers by speciality and venue. The guide has some blank pages (advertisements missing?). https://aaps.net/pdf/2019-AAPS-Guide-final-lo-res.pdf

    Long Tall Fossils and Tucson

    Hello all. New to the forum, but have been reading a lot here(and everywhere). In the process of building a house and have a long tall fireplace wall to fill. We had looked at everything from wood to stone to art, and then I shot down the slippery slope of fossil collecting! I have a couple questions. The space we need to fill is the upper part of a 17' fireplace, so we have more than 10' open, but of course don't have to fill that space. I have seen some really amazing palm fronds and flowers, crinoids or groups of fish that would work(but would cost a fortune). Do you have any other suggesti

    Tucson trip

    Hi all, I am going to be in the Tucson area for 10 days soon. Is there anything to collect in that area (say 120 mi radius). I have never been to AZ. If you have some collecting information to share please PM me. Thanks a lot. Herb

    Tucson Fossil Show 2018

    I'm starting to plan a trip to the Tucson Fossil Show in February. (This will be my first time there.) I've only got a couple of days and I know there are dozens of separate shows, so I want to plan my time to visit the best of them. It seems like the 22nd Street Show should be a good one to attend, what other ones should I think about attending? What Fossil Forum members will be exhibiting there? I'd like to try to at least stop by and say hello, maybe buy something, too.
  17. Early news for the 2017 show. All those attending the show, at the Tuscon Inns Suite City Center, will face a nightmare parking close to the Hotel. The large parking area that everyone uses at this venue has been sold and construction is scheduled to start early February. Marty Zinn the promoter is telling dealers that he is setting up a remote parking area and will bus visitors to Hotel. I also hear that he is trying to delay construction until after the show but cannot substantiate that piece of information. The immediate impact, that I'm aware of

    Navigating Tucson

    I am VERY excited to be going to Tucson for the first time in a little over a week (Feb 2-5). The idea of this show seems a bit overwhelming; thousands of dealers in different venues spread over the city and some as others have pointed out already selling mislabeled and ingenuine pieces. What is the best strategy in conquering the city for the best fossils? I'm interested mainly in eggs (which seems like they may be hard to find, even at Tucson now) but excited to begin to explore other facets of fossil collecting. Any advice from those who have been there will be appreciated!

    Fossils around Tucson

  20. Hey, I am looking to go to Tucson for a couple days tentatively february 3 thru 6. Looking for a partner or 2 to share the car rental and hotel expenses with. Thanks Mike
