  1. Acquired from @PaleoPat during a recent trade. This trilobite is originally from Arkona and is uncommon.
  2. Hello! Someone I know found this rock close to his house. The rock is very hard, can't make no scratch on it. I though it could be a fossil, like a limpet track or I don't know...? Does someone know what it is? Thank you! Fossile patelle?.pdf
  3. I tried to ID a fossil I found, but I had no success. I found it along the coast of the Bay of Fundy, close to Moncton, Canada. It says online that the area where the fossil was found is in the late Devonian - late Carboniferous period. Anybody have any idea what this fossil is?
  4. As above. After the silly Alioramus(?) locality mistake I made, I have taken on the colossal and necessary task of auditing all my locality info. Here's an area that has me stumped. Does anyone know if there's any late Cretaceous dino-bearing formations in Drumheller besides Horseshoe Canyon?
  5. Hey everyone, I was hoping I could get your help in identifying what I think is a shark tooth? Embarrassingly enough it could just be a shell, but it looks an awful lot like a tooth to me. It's about 2" in length, if that helps, and I found it on the beach in Brackley, PEI. If it's a shark tooth, what shark does it belong to? And if it's not, what is it? If you have any ideas, I would love to know! It's really for curiosity's sake. Thank you! Here is the back-

  7. I found this close to a lake where My famaiky has a cottage and I do not know much about fossils. There appears to be a creature of some sorts as well as a salt water shell even though we are thousands of miles from any salt water.

  10. I am likely headed to Western New York and Canada to do some fossil hunting 6/9 to 6/11. Originally I was leaving on 6/6. The first half of the trip has been cancelled by my club so I am looking for fun and interesting locations to hunt. I plan to leave Cincinnati Ohio really early on 6/6. I am looking for places heading east then I can turn north on 6/8 to hit the reminder of the scheduled trip. Anyone have some good ideas? Anyone want to join me and show me around your favorite locations? I would be interested in hitting sites in OH, PA, WV, MD or North of there heading towards Western New York. For a really good location I would be willing to venture further east. Thank you.
  11. This article will be published in next month's National Geographic. Enjoy! I must visit the Royal Tyrell Museum!
  12. Found this large broken tooth turned up in a agricultural field, 1/4 mile from a large river. the tooth is 2.5" long & i would say that the broken root end was probably an inch longer. Any help would be appreciated. Found in SW Ontario, Canada.

  15. I am going Manitoba on a fishing trip. Are there any special Canadian laws regarding fossil collecting? Are the islands there fossiliferous?
  16. This looks an awful lot like a Trilobite to me...found it by a brackish lake while trekking through the Arctic! If it is they're still living up here!
  17. Found this while trekking through the Arctic. Looks a lot like a Trilobite to me. Found a few of these washed up on the shores of a brackish lake here. Can anyone identify what it is?
  18. Hi I am new to this site was wondering if someone can help me ID this tooth I found along the North Saskatchewan River by Drayton Valley, Alberta, Canada. Thanks.
  19. This conical, segmented, fossil was picked up off the shores of Lake Ontario in rocks that contain a lot of bryozoan and crinoid fragments. I think it is Devonian, but could someone help me confirm that, and help me understand what this fossil might be?

  22. Originally interpreted as a green algae with a relationship to the modern green alga Caulerpa, Margaretia dorus is now considered to be the feeding tube of the hemichordate Oesia. The position of Oesia is uncertain. Originally described as an annelid worm by Walcott (1911), a recent reinterpretation as a chaetognath (Szaniawski, 2005, 2009) has been vigorously rejected, and a position closer to the hemichordates proposed instead (Conway Morris, 2009). Margaretia dorus would now be a junior synonym of Oesia disjuncta Walcott, 1911 Lit.: Simon Conway Morris and R. A.

  23. Great story about a hiker on a guided tour finding a very rare Burgess fossil Ovatiovermis.
  24. Book Freebies for someone in Canada. I've boxed up some publications on vertebrates. These are doubles and ones I wont use give away. In used but decent shape. Some notes in margins. The two shark tooth books are large and heavy. No need to compensate me for postage but I ask that you make a equivalent donation of the postage to your local SPCA. (Last box to Maritimes was $34). Note...I will send these as a group to someone with an specific expressed interest in the subject. If I dont respond, they are spoken for. PM only, please.
