    Cretaceous sea

    Hello all, One of the many drawings/art works of me. Black pencil and edited with pc. This artwork comes perhaps in a book that will be published in July/August 2021. The Cretaceous sea (Kreidemeer) of Europe (late late Campanian and/or early Maastrichtian, 73-69/73-68 mya). Kind regards and happy fossil hunting! Ruben

    What is it, tooth, claw?

    Hello! Help, please, to identify fossil. Height - slightly less than 1,5 mm. Age - mot probably Middle Miocene. Location - Western Ukraine. Thanks in advance!
  3. Taiwan's largest museum devoted only to fossils is located at the southern part of the island, near the city of Tainan at the Zuojhen Fossil Park. Most travelers will start their journey in the capital city of Taipei, but Tainan is only a <2 hour bullet train ride away (the bullet train, or high speed rail, is a destination in of itself- a marvel of speed, comfort and efficiency) and a visit to the Zuojhen Fossil Park is highly recommended. For western audiences, fossil park may be a bit misleading. Its not a park as in playgrounds and grassy fields, more like an industrial park, or complex

    My fossil collection

    Hi all, I've been wanting to do this for awhile, but here it goes. My Member collection post. I’ll be posting mainly Vertebrates, because I don’t have many invertebrate fossils. First up is just my main display table. It’s consists of mostly Pleistocene mammal teeth, but there are some Miocene fossils mixed in. Besides for a string of articulated shark vertebrae, a large meg my dad found, and a calcite clam, these are all either carnivorous mammal/Proboscidean fossils. Enjoy!
  5. Hi guys! I am looking for new areas to hunt for rocks and fossils around the KC area. I have been to the Blue river, Kansas river, Cedar creek, Tuttle creek, Perry Lake, Mill creek, and abandoned quarry areas. Anyone have any general locations of where I can find some stuff? I am an avid hunter for all sorts of fossils and rocks (rockhounding is my favorite past time)! I've had the most luck at the Kansas river and Perry lake. Some of my finds include cow skulls, cone coral, shells, agates, vertebrae, and a bunch of druzy quartz geodes and chalcedony. I ha

    Limburg (NL) fossils

    Hello all, Some photo's of my recent fossil hunting trips in the Netherlands (Limburg). All fossils are 73-66 and/or 73-69 million years old (late late Campanian, early Maastrichtien). Mainly belemnites (belemnitella and belemnella sp.), 3 sea urchin genus Echinocorys sp. (my girlfriends top find), one horse tooth (Equus sp.) a pipe and a bone (don't know species). Also on the first photo one trace fossil (ghost shrimp/crab) and one belemnite with holes. Kind regards, Fossilsforever
  7. During 2018 and 2020 some rare and spectacular Ammonites had been stored out of the University of Bremen. This was to renew the exhibition. when the exhibition was rebuilt, the fossils were no longer there. If anyone see on of this ammonites: please contact me (f.raquet@aol.de) or Prof. Lehmann from the University (jens.lehmann@uni-bremen.de). The main aim is to get them back. Be sure that any note or hint about them will be treated confidentially. You can see the exhibition at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sq0vEppbDHU&t=37s there between minute 1.38 - 1.45 As I

    NYC Long Island area

    Anyone know any good spots by nyc or Long Island for fossils? All the places I’ve read about are far by buffalo
  9. This Is my first post. I am a amateur hunter from south Louisiana. I have had a lot of trouble finding fossils. I have found one chrinoid in a creek, but aside from coral,nothing has been found.I have found that the two prominent spots from the days of past have been covered long ago. I also realize I in a area with not a lot of potential for ground or creek fossils. I have done one trip, and found plenty there, but that was a long drive to Texas. I have even emailed people such as LSU and Alabama professors and geologists from Mississippi, Louisiana and Tennessee. Help please!
  10. I'm starting to get into mechanical prep seeing as with the quarantine I have extra time on my hand. My equipment arrived before my projects did so I've been practicing on this invert I had on hand. I believe this is a gastropod? Or is it a bivalve? I can never keep them straight in my head. Anyways, I forgot to take a before picture so I apologize for this awful photo as it was the only one I had: And this is it currently: Obviously not done yet, needs some more work and then some serious clean up to make it look nice but I'm thinking to put it aside for a
  11. Hello all, I am a new member and really interested in belemnites (prehistoric 'squid'). In the United States of America, belemnites (Belemnitida) can be collected at specific locations. I know that around Delaware (Canal) and New Jersey (Big Brook area) the belemnitellid Belemnitella americana (Morton, 1830) occurs. I am interested if anyone has some photo's of that american belemnite species. The Navesink formation and other Cretaceous layers are around 70-66 million years old. Is this correct? I have read that New Jersey was under water during th
  12. I found this online and its free. I want to store fossils in this but i have heard that some wood damage fossils. Is that true? And will this cabinet work? I asked the seller what type of wood it is but they don't know.

    Nummulite?

    Hello! Is it Nummulite? Age - cretaceous-paleogene. Max. size: 5 mm. Western Ukraine. Thanks in advance!
  14. Hey hi Everybody! I like the unusual teeth. And posterior teeth are some of the most unusual in any given species. So I thought I would start a thread for posterior shark teeth of any species. To kick it off..... Here are some from Shark tooth hill (round mountain silt). I think these are Carcharodon hastalis and (?) planus. The smallest one is just under 1/8th inch wide. So, if You have any posterior shark teeth - please post pictures here. Thanks, Tony
  15. I was browsing some of our favorite websites and I noticed a whole bunch of fossil fakes. Below are some fossil fabrications to be on the lookout for. While authentic looking, something bugged me when I saw this Carcharodontosaurid tooth. The overall shape near the tip is off. It is slightly too recurved and pointed. Upon closer examination, I noticed this tooth is a composite of multiple teeth. The glued section is the exact right color to match both the top and bottom tooth. It is scary how good some of the fakes are. Here is another

    My “Mesozoic Park”

    Well, I figured that I should start a member’s collection. Sorry for my absence, I was busy with college classes. I did great this semester, and I even won a student leadership award! With that being said, I’m gonna start my collection off with a piece that I acquired for my birthday! My 22nd Birthday is tomorrow (June 14th), and I was strapped for money. My father and grandmother chipped in, and helped me acquire this chromium woodworthia piece from a local rock shop that I frequent! It’s from Arizona, and it only cost $60 USD! I’ll try to be active here whenever I can

    Ancient Tooth

    I took this tooth as payment for my services on a heat pump, even though I’m not a professional archaeologist, I have access to same books as they do. I was told this was a “junior mastodon tooth” ?
  20. A few weeks ago, @oyo had a really interesting post about "Coral Lovers". It was a fascinating look at fossilized asexual reproduction of coral specimens - really beautiful too. I just recently brought home a bag of matrix from one of the Central Texas Cretaceous Glen Rose formation sites. And surprise surprise...I found a whole series of Orbitolina texana caught in the various stages of reproducing! So here is my "For Foraminifera Lovers" EDIT - so apparently, this is not asexual reproduction - could be merging of adults or recovering from wounding or just conjoined twins. Ah well.
  21. Hello! I have collected a large amount of material on marine reptiles. Origin - Cenomanian of Ukraine (phosphorite layer). After sorting through the material, I can offer 4 lots for trading. The first three are approximately the similar lots (small bones in phosphorites). 4th lot - also the bones of the Cenomanian, but mostly bony fish. If you are interested in such material, please contact me in PM. Have a nice evening
  22. Hello. I have opalized wood for trading. Age - Paleogene. There are Teredo mollusc passages ranging in size from 6 to 10 mm, filled with cemented opal sand, less often with chalcedony. Insect coprolites are also found. There is a sample of a solid section with annual rings (ground, but not polished). If you are interested in such samples, please do not hesitate and contact us in a personal. Have a nice day.

    Pseudofossils?

    Evening all. I don't think any of these warrants its own post, as they're just "unusual rocks" that I picked up on the Suffolk beach in the UK I comb regularly. I appreciate any and all input.
