  1. I bought a former dealer's remaining collection today. It is a nice mix.
  2. any help on these please
  3. I bought this megalodon tooth online to practice repairing. Here are some pictures of my progress. Please any constructive criticism or anything would be extremely helpful. Thank you
  4. This show has NOT been canceled. This show is still planned. Be there!
  5. 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.
  6. Hello! If all goes fine, I'm going to South Africa in june or july. I will stay near Ellisras (Limpopo). I would like to go fossil hunting some day. But I dont know if I am in the proper zone, since I've seen in google that most of the fossils are in the south. Is it possible to find some fossils in the north? And if it is, what kind and what period of time? It would be nice to go back home with some small ammonite or other fossil. It would be a nice remembee of South Africa!
  7. From the album @Max-fossils 's Zandmotor Finds

    A view of the Zandmotor, with many gulls in the background.
  8. Hi, i'm a newbie , i started my collection some month ago. anyway i need help for the indentification of this thing that i found on a cliff in sardinia (italy)
  9. Hello everyone! Since I can't actually go out fossil hunting these days, I thought I might post pictures of some fossils that I've had for a while to see if anyone out there in TFF can help me with identification. First up are two fossils I collected when I traveled to Queensland, Australia for a field course back in May 2000. I recall that we spent an afternoon looking for fossils in a creek/river in the Chillagoe area, and I found a total of three specimens: 1. an echinoid (maybe a sand dollar?) that I gifted to my professor because he was interested in it (I now wish that I had kept it, but oh well!), 2. an orthoconic nautiloid (photos found below in this post), and 3. something wierd (photos included in the post that follows). I'd appreciate any assistance that you can give - thanks! Monica PS - I have no idea as to the age of the rocks out there, but maybe someone out there knows Orthoconic nautiloid:
  10. Hi! Im looking fossils from Paratethys area. some nice,big tipical specimens.
  11. Greetings from Florida! I am hoping one of my fellow Fossil Forum brethren might help me out. I am planning a family vacation to the Charleston area the first week of April and came across Low Country Fossil Excursions online. I definitely wanted to do some fossil digging while we are up there, but some of their reviews concerned me. I just spoke to Shawn Damon (guide/owner) on the phone but I am still a little worried about this guided hunt. I am an AVID hobbyist fossil hunter here in Florida, with about 20 years (on and off) of experience, and frequently participate in digs with the University of Florida. Not to be rude, but it is imperative to me, that for the kind of money they are asking, we are going to an area not accessible to the general public or at the least, not heavily trafficked and picked over. I appreciate the value of a good guide, but I am just unsure. Do any of you have experience with this company? Are they worth the $360.00 they are asking for to take my wife, myself and my skilled 8 yr old side-kick (daughter) on a 6 hour "walk-in" hunt? It seems like a lot, especially after what I read on Trip Advisor. Would I be better off to learn the SC fossil hunting rules and strike out on my own? THANK YOU IN ADVANCE for your candid and honest answers!!!!!
  12. Hi everyone! I don't know why I have not posted these sooner as I have had doubts as to their true identity for some time. The first two teeth were found at Big Brook. After researching I felt that they closest resembled #1 bear and #2 beaver. The third tooth I found at Brownies Beach. This I felt was peccary.I am hoping those of you with more knowledge than I have could help me out here. Thank-you in advance. Dave
  13. This morning I had an unexpected day off from work and decided to head to Gainesville's creeks. I've done this many, many times before as I've been hunting fossils most of my life- Today I was approached by a member of City of Gainesville Department of Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs. I had only just arrived and started to dig below the waterline as I always do; but she educated me that there is a rule within the municipal city limits of Gainesville, stating that "no designated city park should allow creek access or digging in creeks within park boundaries." This is part of a larger conservation and erosion control effort by local habitat management. I made sure to be very cooperative and polite (as you ALWAYS should be), and I left after a very pleasant conversation with her. She agreed to research the issue and find out if there are ways to get access to the creeks within park boundaries via permit etc. Meanwhile, I called the number listed on my Florida fossil hunting permit and verified that the information I had been given was correct. The only "public access" to any Gainesville creeks is from the roadside at any point where the creeks intersect the road. From there, you can access them without touching private property. You must not go on the banks on either side as that IS private property. You may wade the creek and hunt, but never within a city park or private property without permission. I am literally posting this while I sit in a parking lot reviewing maps for alternate access. In the spirit of responsible hobby-hunting, conservation of Florida's wetlands and education, I wanted to share this information with you all. Happy Hunting!
  14. My family and I are taking a trip to Disney March 25_ April 1. One day will be spent at Venice beach. This will be the only day I will be able to hunt shark teeth on this trip. I would like to make it as successful as possible. So any tips or advice for this location would be much appreciated. I plan on getting a sifter while I'm down there. Would snorkeling be worthwhile? Also is there areas where collecting tends to be better. I wish I could go to the Peace, but that will remain a dream for now. Thank-you Dave
  15. I was wondering if anyone has ever been to a fossil show in Japan. I found some pictures on the Internet of some fossil shows in Japan and the quality of the dinosaur fossils shown are incredible. I'm not sure when or where these pictures were taken.
  16. I am going to San Antonio, TX for my Honeymoon in July. I am hoping maybe that are some public places I could explore in the area, or nearby for fossils, and interesting rocks. If you know of something please let me know here, or through messaging!
  17. Trying to arrange a trip to Gold Point, Ammonite Canyon, Fossil Hill and Canyon this April. Going after trilobites, ammonites, insects, plant material. Anyone interested in going as a small group 4 cars or less?
  18. I need a change of fossil collecting scenery and locals. I am heading to Nevada this April and on to Utah. Thus far I planning on visiting Gold Point, Ammonite Canyon, Fossil Hill and Canyon in Nevada and my normal locals in Utah - Central Western desert. Anyone done extensive collecting in Nevada? I could use a map with pins or more specific directions. Best, Dan
  19. Maybe i post too much in this section, but i cant withheld this great museum of natural history in Stuttgart I was there last Sunday and i must admit that i was impressed ! But pictures say more than words ... This dinosaur (Plateosaurus) welcoming the visitors ... There was an impressive collection about the fossils from Steinheim.... Another impressive fossil: (from Nusplingen) A pterosaur head:
  20. Trying to see if there are any good fossil hunting locales for my brother(Dakar) and my sister(Jacksonville). I know of the Peace River in Florida. But I was wondering if maybe the beaches in these areas or anywhere close(within an hour or so) might be hotspots to check out. Thanks for the help!
  21. Is it illegal to surface hunt for fossils in Lumberton on public property? I read that they made digging illegal. Who knows for certain? I am planning a trip February 10th, 11th and 12th.
  22. Hey gang! It has been a while. Life has been keeping me busy and the only digging I have done since my last post has been with UF at their Montbrook Site (which is awesome!). Today, I have an odd request because it pertains to a trip I hope to take in SC this Spring, but here is the link- maybe some of you travelling hunters can help me out:
  23. I bought some coprolites ( Mineralized dung) that came from Madagascar. I have some questions. What is the real age of them? Some sellers on the Internet say it's from the Eocene, others say it's from the pliocene. What animal did they come from? They were labeled as turtle coprolites. And last, Are they really coprolites? They could easily be concretions or some other geological thing. I have not been able to find much information. Here's a pic
  24. Found in Bone Valley area of Florida. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you and good luck out there.
  25. I was back out in the field today on the hunt for more fossils. Gathered a bunch of rock to split and examine. What I did find were fragile fossils of vegetation. The picture shows what looks to be a fossilized chunk of wood. Hope to get back out there! B.A.Wagner
