  1. I tried out a new secluded north Texas creek while artifact hunting with a friend. He told me the creek didn't have fossils but I managed to prove him wrong and find a really cool piece of Protostega plastron, a small Mosasaur vert and a section of ammonite :). Wild hogs were everywhere there.
  2. Hey all, at the suggestion of others, I'm posting a photo of an ammonite fossil for assistance on species. This ammonite was unearthed by my father in 1972 in Shasta County CA. It measures 25 1/2 inches long by 20 inches tall. Any suggestions and help with its species and rarity is greatly appreciated. I get that it is not a complete specimen but hoping someone can help, Shannon
  3. Hey all, a new member here and hoping someone on the site can help with estimating the value of a large ammonite I have and wanting to sell for my aging father. I'll post photographs to help if requested. The shell is approximately 27 inches by 22 inches. It was unearthed by my amateur fossil hunting father in Shasta County California in 1972. He has told me that it is one of the largest specimens found in the north state. Any guidance on this is greatly appreciated. Shannon
  4. Attached is an ammonite from east runton in north norfolk, however i really dont know how it got there! I was under the impression that ammonites died out long before then, and east runton is late Pleistocene era. Any ideas? It was lodged on top of the pastonian strata, as if it had fallen from above, and is pretty well preserved so it cant have been washed up.
  5. Hey forum, i'd like to share my new arrival I wanted a large prepped fossil to add to my collection so i was very happy when it came in the mail today. 8.25 inches, 3.3kg This ammonite has had some restoration of the inner whorls but still looks great i think. It's from Agadir, Morocco Here are some pictures
  6. Hi Guys. This ammonite was found and given to me by my father. The location this was found at is unknown to me, I do know however it was somewhere along the coast between Whitby-filey beach in the United Kingdom. Anybody have any idea what kind of ammonite this could be, and if indeed it is, And if this is a decent specimen, real or not. This was found around 12 years ago now. Thanks guys.
  7. Hello there paleontologists, fossil enthusiast, and everything in between. If you couldn't tell this is the first content I've ever made on the fossil forum so please excuse errors and, or inexperience I apologize in advance. Here is my collection of display fossils as well as modern bones keep in mind this is purely what I have on display I keep the vast majority of fossils I posses in storage with lots of support such as bubble rap and various other materials to ensure complete security of precious peeks into our planet's history. If you have any questions or comments feel free to ask as you please. These are all authentic fossils 2 have been directly seen by a professional (Ursus sp. & Unidentified Dinosaur Cretaceous Rib) The Dactylioceras sp. is very clearly a real specimen however there was no authority on it's authenticity the two Hadrosaur fragments are authentic as well one purchased with it's card of authenticity by D.J Parsons and the other was purchased from the very same hunter whom discovered the Cretaceous rib section. (Note: individual specimen content will be released in time)
  8. I'm thinking about buying this, I love sliced ammonites and have never seen one quite like this one, is this actually rare at all?
  9. A couple of years ago, while on a romp through the Rio Puerco Valley, I found this ammonite. Since then, I have attempted to find a proper i.d. for this specimen through literature and documentation of New Mexico's Late Cretaceous ammonites. With very little luck, the closest resemblance were ammonites in the subfamily Puzosiinae, which are not documented from New Mexico. Today I decided to show the curator and the ammonite researcher at the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science. Good news...they did not know what it was! ...pretty exciting. Anyhoo, I have donated it to be studied but figured I would post it here as well. Unknown ammonite from the Late Cretaceous (Cenomanian) Paguate Mbr. of the Dakota Formation - New Mexico, USA. I doubt they'll be jumping on this right after lunch, but I will let ya'll know the results as I do. Happy hunting, -P.
  10. Hi, couple of Ammonites that have a thin layer still, lovely colours underneath that I would like to get down to, what's the best method you guys/gals think to get the best finish ? Thanks.
  11. Can you ID this Callovian-Oxfordian ammonite from southern Poland? I was thinking maybe Trimarginites, but I'm not sure.
  12. Hi, I have a load of amonite nodules and other bits, i really dont want to hammer them as i dont think i've got the right knack yet and i wont be going back there for a while, so want to excavate these specimens slowly and controllably. Is there a reasonably priced pneumatic drill for gradual removal of sediment? Or any other advice for tools more delicate than a hammer!
  13. Just acquired this ammonite and am hoping someone can tell me more about it and where it might have come from. I believe somewhere in South Dakota, but not sure. Thanks in sdvance.
  14. Hi, where can I find ammonites in silverado canyon? Does anyone know a specific location? Thanks in advance, I really just want one.
  15. I have just spent the last 30 mins chipping away at this nodule. I wasn't actually sure if there was something inside, so the first sign of it was very exciting. When i finally split the rock in half it was very satisfying.
  16. Hi I found this the other day in a jurassic/cretaceous formation in valencia (spain) but I,m not sure if it's a worn out ammonite or something else. Any ideas? Thanks for your help! it came from inside a rock like this one, as you can see there are pseudogrammoceras and other marine fossils:
  17. Would love to go collecting fossils this July. Trilobites and Ammonites are high on my list. Can anyone suggest places to go in New England or New York? I'm a geologist/micro-paleontologist (foraminifera) but have never collected macro-fossils in the North-east. I currently live in CT. Any guidance much appreciated.
  18. hello all, just wondering if you know any LEGAL PUBLIC fossil sites open to the public in Canada, Ontario?
  19. I'm heading across the ditch for a holiday in April and was hoping to spend a couple of days checking out some fossil sites. Anyone got any suggestions? Would love to find some ammonites and trilobites, also any bone fragments.
  20. Hi guys , I bought a lot of unprepared fossils from Germany , got this one to prepare , any advice ? I don't want to destroy it , I've got just an engraver. An acid soak maybe?
  21. Hi all, I got those ammonites from @cheney416 in a blind trade. They come from Morocco, but the exact location is unknown. Apparently they are from the Bajocian stage of the Jurassic; 170 mya), but I can't find any Jurassic locations in Morocco containing ammonites... Does anyone know what species these are, and what location they could come from? Thanks, Max
  22. Hi guys, Thinking of buying this nice heteromorph ammonite from this Chinese seller. It originates from Madagascar and I'd like to know what genus or species (if possible) it is? And roughly how old as well. Thanks!
  23. Well, this is my first post in the Hunting Trips section. The week of Thanksgiving, my wife, my daughters and I headed off to Waco, Texas for a three day getaway. It was not supposed to be a fossil trip, but I managed to squeeze in a few stops... Our first stop, on a cold November 22nd afternoon, was the Waco Mammoth Site. It was absolutely spectacular! My kids loved it. It was so amazing to see these huge animals still laying in the spots where they fell, instead of mounted in a museum hall... The next day, I managed to convince my wife to let me scope out the Waco Research Pit. I told her it would only take a few minutes to see what might be there...yeah right. We stopped off at the Corps of Engineers building to sign in and get a parking tag for the car. They were extremely helpful. We drove to the parking area and I left my wife and two year old in the van, while I led my 9 and 5 year olds down the trail to the pit. In the first few minutes, I stumbled across the first ammonite. My kids marveled at the beautiful spiraled shell. A few minutes later I found another. I believe they are Engonoceras serpentinum, but I'm not 100% sure. I also found some what I believe to be Mariella sp. These are the better specimens...
  24. Hi, Whilst collecting yesterday along the coast between Bonchurch and Luccombe, I was searching around on some accessible parts of the cliff face and came across this very nice, nearly intact ammonite in a scree slope of clay like material (@Ludwigia you were right!). The cliff is divided up between the Sandrock Fm. and the Monk's Bay Sandstone Fm. which are the upper parts of the Lower Greensand group, dating to the Albian stage of the Cretaceous. As far as I can tell it's a likely a member of the Hoplitidae, which is a very common family in the Albian strata here, however considering the fairly nice and nearly whole condition of the specimen would it be possible to ID it further to a genus or even species level? The closest match I can find is Euhoplites bucklandi but even then there are some differences. I've attached images below showing the specimen and it's keel. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Theo
  25. I found a site where everything is a fossil. Specifically, I could gather 1,000 heterasters in an hour, and there's shelves of ammonites. (See pictures below.) I have two questions: (1) Is a site with a crazy high concentration of heteraster (and associated species) and ammonite fossils out of the ordinary, or are there lots? (Know what I'm saying?) (2) When you find a great site, what do you do?
