    Leighton Formation Conodont?

    So, I have just found this highly-suspect fossil - my guess is a conodont. I saw it as I was examining pieces of shale, and thought it was worth looking at under the microscope. It seems to have the diagnostic features, even the transition of colors between the blue base and white tips. I was hoping for some of your options on it. If this is a conodont, it would be the first from this formation. My guess would be a Ozarkadina sp - it is a very common Silurian conodont here, and some of the elements look remarkably similar to my specimen. This specimen came from the very fossilifer
  3. Hello, Since all those covid restrictions I haven't got the opportunity to go look for fossils outside of Belgium. So most of our trips from the last year are almost exclusively in the devonian. To get a little change of this I was hoping to find some unprepped vertebrate material, it dousn't have to be complete and I am not afraid of some puzzel work, but the pieces need to be recognisable. I can offer a multitude of different fossils for trade. ( Ammonites, spiriferids, shark teeth, sea-urchins,...) Natalie

  5. Hey guys, First, sorry I've been absent from the forums. After the death of @caldigger I just kinda fell off from the social aspect of it all. It's been a weird year and some change. Covid has effected us all in some form or other, the planet is basically on fire, and politics is eating us from the inside out. I've literally lost friend, figuratively and metaphorically from all of the above. In the time of my absence from the forums, I have been fossil hunting. I've only shared my experience with people that are personally close to me, mostly @Bone Daddy. But, I

  12. Well, we seem to have a 3-way tie with some very diverse fossils--all spectacular and enviable finds but we need a single winner. To decide on the winner for this month's contest we're going to do a run-off contest among the 3 leading entries. Rather than another 9 days of voting we're going to have this contest run for the next 3 days to decide the ultimate winner for this month. Check the entries below carefully and cast your vote! The poll ends June 14th (midnight EST). 1. Daspletosaurus sp. tyrannosaurid tooth - Late Cretaceous, Dinosaur Park FM - St
  13. The winner of the April 2021 VFOTM goes to... Peripristis semicircularis shark tooth - LaSalle Limestone (Late Pennsylvanian) - LaSalle Co., Illinois Congratulations to @connorp !!!
  14. I found this broken nodule in an outcrop of Pennsylvanian shale in Northeast Oklahoma. I’m wondering if the fossil could be the upper part of a skull? Other common fossils from this site include fragmentary fish remains (e.g., teeth, spines, dermal denticles, and coprolites from sharks and other fishes), as well as invertebrate remains from ammonites, gastropods, bivalves, brachiopods, corals, and conularia. If this is a skull, would you guess it to be from a fish, amphibian, or reptile? I don’t see any traces of teeth in the nodule, but I can provide closer views of areas that might be o

  16. Hello, a friend of mine found some kind of large fossilized creature in a cave on Sand Mountain in northeast Alabama. It was buried in red clay. The rocks containing fossilized bone are broken into many pieces; he has collected hundreds of small to medium sized pieces and there are many larger ones still at the site. Most of the creature is still there. The rocks are a sandy yellow color and unusually light weight. I washed one of them (#28) and there was a lot of tiny bubbles forming in different places, showing that the rock is porous. Three of the pieces (see pic below) he

    Weird vertebrae

    I found these two vertebrae together in the Dinosaur Park Formation of Alberta. I’m wondering what they might be? I’m suspecting rather Champsosaur, turtle, or juvenile theropod. Any insight into the identity of these two elements would be great, thanks! @Troodon
