  1. Water was a little high but I found a few things at the North Sulphur River Texas.
  2. I took my 7 year old grandson and my stepdaughters boyfriend on their first fossil hunting trip yesterday. We had a blast and some cool finds. The Xipahctinus pectoral fin and other nice fin piece were my finds of the day. My stepdaughters boyfriend found a really nice shark tooth and a mosasaur vert. My grandson picked up every rock known to man and chased frogs most of the day. Lol

  5. Fish teeth? Whale teeth?

    Found a few of these teeth on the beach (dredged material) in Wilmington, NC. They seem awfully small to be whale teeth. Anyone?
  6. ID - Fish Plate?

    Looking to get an ID on this little guy. I’ve found one or two before this one. Some kind of back plate perhaps?
  7. Iowa Devonian Fossil (Fish Armor?)

    Help please! Last weekend I was on a club trip here in Eastern Iowa, and I found a really cool fossil. According to other club members, the layer it appeared to come from is roughly 385 million years old, possibly from the Little Cedar Formation, although we can't be sure. We believe that it is likely plating from an armored fish. A photo with a couple measurements is attached. The bumps vary in size, but are about 3 mm in diameter. I've reached my photo size limit, so I will try to add more close up photos in a little bit. What species could this be? What part of the body would it be from? Thanks! -Ben Worrell
  8. London Clay Bone ID

    Hi all, Found this on the London Clay at Bawdsey, Suffolk, England. Have found other fish bones before but never one like this. Please may some help out with the identity of it! Cant find any bones similar looking on the internet and it has got me puzzled? Thanks everyone!
  9. Hey, I am finally completing my dream-job at the American fish dig quarry!!! I am just looking for some advice from you Greenriver veterans! Any helpful tips, like what I should bring, what I should do, and where the best place too eat is when it is all over!
  10. Show Us Your Favorite Fishy!

    Well, we've had Brachiopods and Trilobites, so I figured let's give fish a try! I am going to start this off with my Enchodus marchesettii from the Hakel Quarry of Lebanon. Not only is this fossil 100% complete with the only restoration done was repairing the matrix itself, but I received this from one of my good friends on none other than my birthday! This is my favorite fossil in my ENTIRE collection! More will come from the Greenriver side of my collection, I just gotta get my camera fixed
  11. New Addition - Xiphactinus!

    Hi all, It has been sometime since I added something new to my collection but I just obtained a juvenile Xiphactinus. Discovered by my friend in Kansas many years ago. Both sides were preserved and so it was mounted on a rotatable stand. These are pretty rare nowadays in my opinion. Enjoy!
  12. Hi there, a couple of years ago I got this piece as a present. Unfortunately it came without any information about its exact origination (only Morocco) or what it is. After thifting through some books I thought that it might be some kind of palatal plate. Has somebody an idea on this fossil?
  13. Sulphur Creek Mystery Fossils

    I have some mystery fossils from Ladonia, Texas, collected in the Sulphur Creek riverbed. I'm not sure if the fragments are identifiable, but there is one i fine interesting I'd like to get opinions on, I'll start with that one! (after an overall shot:)The fossil I'm finding particularly interesting is the second from right (detail shots below) THis is a total guess but is it a fish fin possibly? Or a small plant? Next is a jaw fragment I'd love to know anything more about: {Will continue in a reply below}
  14. My 3D reconstruction of the fish Aspidorhynchus chasing smaller prey - sprat-like Leptolepides in the seas of Solnhofen (Germany) 150 MYA.
  15. I have a 1in long Notogoneus fry from the 18in layer of the Greenriver formation. For reference of the rarity of this specimen, https://www.nps.gov/fobu/learn/nature/fossil-fish.htm I am looking to trade this fish for more fish specifically Mioplosus but, I am open to all fish offers. I will also consider dinosaur material from Kem Kem or Hell Creek. Also sorry for the bluriness of the photos, I will get better pictures up ASAP.
  16. Enchodus sp.?

    I'm very inexperienced with fish, so I could use a second pair of eyes on this one. The listing is labeling this as Enchodus sp., it's being sold from California, so I assume that's where it was found. I've asked for a more specific locality, but so far no answer. Unfortunately since I don't own the specimen, I can't take any better photos or give a reference for size. Thanks in advance!
  17. Fish teeth? Any ideas?

    We have found these on the same samples where we found some shark and ray teeth... it looks like teleost teeth?! Grid scale (5 mm) Any ideas?
  18. how to protect fossil fish?

    i just got this knightia fossil recently and i was wondering if there anyway to protect it from flaking because they look pretty thin to me . I'm only an amateur collector and joined the forum recently so i'm don't know much about stuff like this.
  19. Do I Have a Protosphyraena tooth?

    Found this tooth in April 2018 in Monmouth County, NJ. I've seen people post pictures of the teeth of Protosphyraena on the forum from this area before and wondered if the tooth I found was also one. The shape of the tooth is what led me to the idea. It's around a centimeter long.
  20. Fossil fish

    Sometimes, in our lives, we can be in love with someone or something, that's the case with me now. I made a gift to myself and I'm in love with it. I just want to ask, if the specimen below might be close to one of the Green River fishes. It cames from Austria, but the seller can't remember where it is from. It was bought 20 years ago and kept in good conditions, as reflect the original pictures of the seller. Any idea / confirmation / comment on the margin, will be highly appreciated. Thank you.
  21. Help with Fish jaw ID

    From the Meherrin River in NE North Csrolina. Local geology and preservation suffuse Plio-Pleistocene. I've eliminated tuna, grouper, wahoo, seabass, drum, sturgeon and tarpon. Im out of ideas. Thoughts?
  22. Gifted Fossils from South America

    Good Day! These fossils were a gift from a friend in the early 1980's. He was a world traveler and brought them to my family from South America. He has since passed so I can't ask him specifics. Clearly they are fish fossils, but that is all I can derive as a layperson. Are there other things that a more skilled person in the field could relay about them? Thank you for the information. The sizes are on the photos: The larger piece is 14.5 x 4.25 x 4 inches The smaller piece is 5.25 x 6.5 x 3.5 inches They are very heavy.
  23. I am wondering why Lake Gosiute has been closed off to the public. It is the only part of fossil lake that has catfish and I really want to try and find one, instead of paying thousands of dollars for one. I have heard it was bought by a company, but I was still wondering if they would let a small private team dig or if they would sell any of the fossils. Thanks for any help!
  24. Greenriver Fish Project

    I made this chart about the Greenriver formation, and I was making sure I had everything right. I know I am missing 3 fish, but I could find no evidence of predation or them preying on any other fish. My conclusion was that Amia was the super predator!
  25. Miocene Fish prep way forward...

    Hello everyone! I found this fish in the Monterey Formation in California and have been unable to get the middle to pop off. I have zero experience preparing fossils of this type so I'm looking for some beginner advice on how to proceed without totally botching it. Thanks!
