  1. Hi All! My wife & I are heading down to Tampa tomorrow to visit my brother, his wife & my new baby niece. It turns out that they are going to be tied up until around dinnertime this Sunday, so it looks like I'll have some unexpected free time to hunt for some fossils - yay! I've been doing a fair amount of research and see that there are a lot of sites within an hour or two of Tampa. Given the very limited time that I will have to hunt, I'm trying to narrow down to the best spot to start hunting & also have a backup spot or two nearby in case I'm not having much luck at the first spot. I figured that I'd post on here to see if anyone could help me out with some info on a spot or two where I would have the best chances this time of year. We definitely don't mind working to find stuff, and we are even down to rent a kayak if that would be a better option. If anyone has any pointers and could help me out, or better yet, if you will be going out collecting this Sunday & wouldn't mind my wife & I tagging along, we would greatly appreciate it! We don't have a fossil collecting permit, because I just found out 2 days ago that we'll have free time on Sunday, so I didn't have time to get one for us. I'm fully aware that that greatly restricts what we are able to collect, at least in certain locations, but we would be happy to even find decent sized shark teeth or some lower grade agatized fossil coral. We are more concerned with just having a good time being outside and finding some cool stuff! Also, I collect a lot of fossil shark teeth from up here in New Jersey too (and a ton of rocks & minerals too), so I'd be more than happy to give someone some of fossils/rocks/minerals that we find up in NJ in exchange for some help while we are down in FL this weekend. I'd also gladly return the favor if you are ever up in the NJ/PA/NY area, since I'm a heavy field collector and have several productive spots up this way! Thanks in advance for any help you can provide! Best, John
  2. Mystery Fossil From The Devonian

    This fossil was found on a recent collecting trip to a quarry near Iowa City. It is from the Devonian. As you can see, it is quite small with relatively large spines. My best guess is some type of brachiopod. I am hoping someone on the forum might know what it is.
  3. Fossil gift

    Hello, I had a brilliant Idea and I wanted to share it with you guys. Here is the rundown: I have a good friend, (not a girlfriend,) in Utah. I want to make something for her for the holidays. I decided to try to make a necklace for her with a piece of Petrified Wood as a pendant. Attached is a picture of the piece I am using. I thought about using one of my Gastropods as the pendant, but I passed because I only have 2 Gastropod fossils. My smallest fossil fish are too big for a necklace. Well, that is my gift idea. I just wanted to share it. What do you guys think? Jared

  10. Cranium?

    This was found by my wife, very heavy, it is fossilized bone but looks like there are air pockets on the inside? I read that mastodon skulls have air pockets, possibly also bison?
  11. Fossilized teeth identification

    All 4 of these teeth were found within 100 yards of each other today. They all appear to be horse, but from different types of horses. Any thoughts?

  13. Hello, I have purchased this interesting fossil tooth from Kem Kem Beds, but I don´t know about the ID, it looks like Spinosaur or fish, but I´m not sure. Can you help me with the ID? The tooth is 1.1 inch (2,8cm) in lenght. Best regards!
  14. Fossil Bone or just rock?

    Hi again-any ideas on this one? Found loose on the ground in Wyoming. Think its fossil material or just rock? thanks for your time
  15. Coprolite? Fossilized nut?

    Hello all. I’ve been carrying this specimen for so long now (probably 25 years or more) I don’t remember where I picked it up. Possibly in Monongalia County, West Virginia or Washington County, Ohio. It is reddish brown in color and weighs 53 grams. It seems to be two things mashed together with distinct outer “crusts” and an inner “marrow “. Any help would be much appreciated.
  16. Hi found this in southeast Mi creek bed. Wondering if it might be prehistoric in origin, likely not fossil-maybe just random shape? thanks in advance!
  17. Rock Garden Fossil

    I am trying to identify what kind of fossil this is. This is the background. I found this in our backyard rock garden about 55 years ago. Since my uncle worked at Fresno State College (now California State University Fresno) in the 1940s, and was the previous owner of my family's house, I think it came from the College's collection. The specimen is clearly an animal bone and I think part of an upper leg bone or pelvis.
  18. Unknown Chesapeake Bay fossil

    Hi all! I could use some help IDing this fossil (thanks in advance for any insights!). Found on a beach in Maryland (nearish Calvert Cliffs). Could be a tooth (?), ~1in long, has a 'midline' on one side and 4 knob-like 'roots' on the bottom. Not conical but tapers to a point. Pics are front, back, and side.

  23. Messy fossil help

    Ok, where do I start on removing this fossil? I am a beginner so where do I start? What should I remove first? Should I even bother?
  24. 3D Printer Files

    I'm hoping someone can point me in the direction of somewhere that has 3-D printer files available for download of fossils, specifically skulls. I teach geology over the summers to children, and would love to incorporate a couple 3-D printed skulls if possible. I believe I have located a 3-D printer and a friend who is willing to let me print a few things. If anyone has a website that they can recommend which makes its 3-D printer files available or would be willing to share their own files with me, I would greatly appreciate it. No preference on species, variety is preferred to show a better depiction of Earth's history.
