  8. 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.
  9. 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?

  14. 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.

  17. I had an interesting conversation with my Executive Director today.... I recently acquired some fossils from a TFF member in Canada, and I took the pieces I got to him because I thought he may be interested. I handed him my newly acquired fossil worm burrows and made him figure out what they were, no information, just here tell me what you think. He stared at them, pulled out a loupe, stared at them, and announces it is a worm burrow....he looks some more, and then says, but I don't recognize this rock. I told him it was a Canadian specimen to which he replied, "is it legal?" I was caught off guard. I informed him how I came about it, and he commenced to tell me that years ago when he was working in Canada, all fossils were legally property of the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto, everything was supposed to go through them. Bear in mind, he is going on 70 so when he was in Canada it was quite a few years back, but it got me wondering...I know we have lots of Canadian members on here. Can anyone enlighten me as to the comments he made? Have any of you heard this before? As I said, it caught me off guard, I know it has been mentioned on here that it is legal to surface collect in Canada, but not dig, but I had not heard anything about all finds being routed through the ROM. Let's hear what you have to say!
  18. Hi Everyone, My husband and I found this little wonder while walking on the shore of Lake Ontario right outside of Toronto today. I am attaching the best pic I can with the space restrictions, I hope it is enough. To describe a little further the image in the pic, the interior of the ridges are crystalized, almost like a geode and you can see a raised "spine" that runs down the center. We don't know what it is, how old it is and if its a rare find or a common item for the area. We're not familiar with fossils and are not from the area. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
  19. I just received a trilobite from this area in a trade (Labiostria westropi.) and I would like to get a few more I have lots of complete Wheeler Shale trilobites, some microvertabrate fossils, upper Pierre Shale fossils, and more for trade. Please PM me if you have any of trilobites from the McKay group for trade Thanks!
  20. The Capelin (Mallotus villosus) is a recent fish found in the North Atlantic, North Pacific and Arctic Oceans.
  21. I am looking for some information on a fossil I inherited from a family member. I really know nothing regarding fossils in general, so any information is helpful!
  22. So these fossils are not from a recent trip but from two prior trips in the last year to the Verulam formation near Brechin, Ont. (middle Ordovician, Katian/Mohawkian stage). I was cleaning and sorting some boxes when I re-found them (most still in their paper wrapping). Loose Brachiopods - clockwise from top: Dalmanella testudinaria, Rafinesquina alternata, Sowerbyella sericea, Rynchotrema increbescens A hash plate with many Dalmanella testudinaria brachs among the debris Unknown Bryozoan but it was big and cool looking so I kept it. Stictoporellina sp. bryozoan The graptolite Diplograptus amplexicaulis A couple of Conularia trentonensis that Kevin @Northern Sharks found and gave me. A nice big, intact mound forming bryozoan that is either Prasopora sp. or Mesotrypa sp. A plate with a few large mound forming bryozoans that are either Prasopora sp. or Mesotrypa sp. Possibly a Sphenothallus sp. specimen? Partial Trilobite A small but nice Flexicalymene sp. specimen A Cruziana specimen that @Northern Sharks spotted and let me extract I think this is a crinoid calyx, possibly an Ectenocrinus?
  23. First time posting on here. Seems like there is a lot of knowledgeable members so I'm hoping there is someone who is familiar with Tournasian age vertebrate fauna and can help me to properly identify this jawbone. I have a few candidates, however, I would like to hear thoughts from members. There is also an ulna bone situated directly above the jaw.
  24. Rhadinichthys was an (elongate-)fusiform fish with an oblique suspensorium and large gape. The body scales are rhomboid, and usually denticulated posteriorly. There are two rows of teeth, an inner set of incurved conical teeth and an outer set of small teeth. Coll. T. Bastelberger
  25. Found in dry river bed of Etobicoke creek, Toronto, Ontario, Canada (upper ordivican) 2 pics here are both sides of the rock the size is roughly 4cm by 5cm.
