  1. Some time last year I proposed a new website to Kris @Ptychodus04 in exchange for some ammonites which later evolved (no pun) into him doing some additional preparation work as well. My profession is a software engineer (programmer) and I specialize in web development. Here's the new site running from my Linux CentOS server that I built a few years ago: Texas Fossils His old site was overdue for an upgrade. I'm adding a gallery to this website tomorrow so he will be able to upload new pictures and I'll be making additional updates throughout the week based off of his feedback. Hopefully I'll get to make @RJB a website to showcase all of his crabs as those are certainly worth showing off.
  2. Ive only got an hour or two to play on the FF. Im leaving on a fossil hunting trip tomorrow morning at about 4 am. If I can find what im after, it will be a rare fossil. Just hoping I can get a really good one. Been looking for one of these for years!!! Dont meant to be so mysterious, but im not sure if i will get any? My question is for @Fossildude19. if I find some of these concretions, it will be found this month and close to the end of the month. i wont be able to prep any till next month. My question is: Will I still be able to post it in the 'Fossil of the Month'? I dont think Ive ever posted in Fossil of the Month, but would like to with one of these? RB
  3. What would you call this? Does it count as a fossil if it's not in sediment? Saw this on eBay advertised as "One in a Billion Ultra Rare Find: Clam Shell Fossil Imprint on an Oyster Shell"
  4. I found these fossils at Ramanessin Brook in NJ. I need help identifying all of these fossils.
  5. I just moved to South Georgia, Kairo-Ochlocknee-Thomasville area. I am very new to fossil hunting and I don't have any clue where to go or who to ask, where-if there is-can I go to explore? Any help is GREATLY appreciated
  6. Just arrived back from Cuba. Here are my finds. All of them need to be cleaned and restored. If anyone is interested in trade message me. This is my best find 5.8", needs some restoration.
  7. Hi, I am from Ottawa, Canada. I am 31 male, my wife is 27 female. We are both mineral collector and spend at least 1 or 2 days a month going out for gemstones and other minerals or fossils. We have visited at least 80 sites in the past 3.5 years....We mostly visit abandoned mines but have found our own spots for semi precious stones, metals and radioactives. I am looking for someone who wants to go on a small day trip for fossils or minerals. I personally do not drive (epilepsy)..My wife will drive on some day trips if I can find someone on here who is easy going and seems solid to be around... If you drive, I can pitch half on gas and we can go collecting as well....Its up to you.. I am willing to go with a male or female or both, or a few people. I am strictly interested in meeting like-minded people who share a love of the outdoors, and nothing more. Same goes for my wife..She will offer to drive sometimes if you would like that after I determine someone is decent to hang around...We fish as well.. If you are interested or have any questions let me know...
  8. I keep finding these fragments I feel like they could be piece of a mammal tooth. Could you guys help me out? The three on the right I'm not sure but the one on the left is different and is definitely part of a tooth
  9. The Fossil Forum has reached an important milestone: we now have 1,000 fossils with pictures and descriptions in our collections section. We beat our fellow paleontology website MyFossil to the 1,000 mark even though they had a big head start; they started in November 2014 while we started last September. Check out the quality fossils and posts at MyFossil: I encourage everyone to help create the best online digital collection of fossils in the world. Take a look at your best fossils and see if we could use a picture of it in our digital fossil collection. I have seen a lot of fossils in FF posts that are worthwhile to add to our collection.
  10. Hello everybody! Its been a while since I've had the opportunity to post anything here, though I have been enjoying seeing everyone else's finds. My job has become steadily busier as the weather and water become warmer, so the last couple days of rain have afforded me some time off. I've been hunting substantially less often then I would like to, but have still managed some nicer finds in the last month or so. I'd say the finds below probably represent something around 5-6 hunts at the same couple sites that I've been visiting for the last year or so. Ive also added some "in situ" photos from a beach hunt I did with my work a few days ago. Take care, SOSC First off, a group shot - Today's very nice Angustidens tooth - A really exceptional (and beautifully-colored) mako, Isurus desori - A nice Alopias grandis - A colorful great white- And a crazy lil posterior(?) or symphyseal(?) angustidens - ...And a very, very large shark vertebral plate -
  11. Thought we would visit big brook today since the wifey and I have been going to and doing well at ramanessin the past month or so and did well as well as the place looks so beautiful with it being spring there we thought we would share our trip.
  12. Otter creek field report 02-13-16: The day turned out to be a wonderful day to hunt South Carolina fossils. I met with one other at 1pm. We gathered our gear and headed out to find the elusive shark teeth and various other fossilized materials. We arrived at a deep cut creek site and began to survey. The first item that was very noticeable was very little evidence of other fossil hunters. What we found was blue marl, tan and brown marl, blue limestone, phosphate, and large stones (gravel of sort). Sanding-in was obvious in 90% of the creek. There were no teeth protruding from the dark gray sandstone walls. The large stones (golf ball to base ball size) had to be removed prior to gathering material and moving it through the sifter. The teeth that began to appear were small but grading upwards in size. I collected about 40 in all. The sizes ranged between .5” to 1.0”. The findings included Tigers, Hemi’s, Mako, Bull, Sand, Lemon, and Black Tip Sharks. Photos to follow.
  13. Have an unusual layered rock, dug it up out of my garden a few years ago in the Lower Hunter Valley, NSW Australia. Quite a light rock to hold, approx size - 10cmL X 7cmW X 8cmD, any thoughts would be appreciated, thanks
  14. Hi all, Today at a flea market I purchased a small handful of shells found on the Kaloot (NL), where you can find fossil sharkteeth as well as fossil seashells (and other fossils). He assured me that at least some (if not all) are fossils, which is true: the Pliothyrina in the middle is extinct, so it has to be a fossil; and many of the astartes on the bottom seem to be fossilized too. But I'm not sure that all the shells are fossilized. Therefore I was wondering, does anyone know how to separate fossil shells from modern ones? Best regards, Max
  15. I'm sure most of you know about Jack Horner's study on dinosaur growth ontogeny in the Hell Creek formation. It centered around the idea that some dinosaurs were really just juveniles of other dinosaurs. To my knowledge, most of his hypothesis about which dinosaur is a juvenile or adult are generally accepted (except Nanotyrannus and Tyrannosaurus Rex). This study has primarily been in the Hell Creek Formation. I was wondering if there are any dinosaurs or animals out of the Hell Creek Formation that you think are really juvenile forms of other animals. For those who want to know more this is a link to his Ted Talk: Edit: Saurophaganax and Allosaurus are hypothesized to be the same.
  16. While rummaging around my fossil shed at the prop, I ran into these two beauties. Sad to say, I dont remember where I got the dino vert from, but im guessing I got it in trade with Earnest Shirley in Hanksville. I did a heck of alot of trading with him back when my kids were young. The mammoth tooth, and quite large too, I got in a trade from a guy who got this from fishermen from the North sea? I can see that they both need some work, but still, cool to find in my shed. RB
  17. A short while ago I bought an oreodont skull from 32 FordBoy and today I found the one I prepped out about 20 years ago. They look perty darn good together. RB
  18. Made these sifters out of milk crates, bought from Hardware store and cut them down to few inches from bottom. Have 1/2", 1/4" and then 2 smaller wires. Stack them up on the bed of my work truck and let the yard do the sifting as I drive around.

  20. If anyone has any material/links on West Virginian fossils and/or localities feel free to add to this page- I am going to continue to gather up resources on the state and post on here. LINK: <> - Very brief explanations for localities in Eastern WV <> - Largest collection of localities for WV I've seen to date, however, some that are listed are just locations that have only been known to contain one fossil. (^ Links I've found so far ^) -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- (V Links posted by other members V) Looking on the western end of West Virginia, but everything is useful. (Links will be credited.) Thanks.
  21. Well guys and gals, it's been awhile since i did an update but here it is. I am aware it's mostly jaws, but for some reason theyre the most complete bones i tend to find. Apologies for the pics being blurry, lighting wasnt great.. The rule in all photos is 6" First up we'll start with the my humble wombat collection. Pictured is a loose tooth from a Vombatus sp., a partial jaw (or is it upper?) from a Phascalonus gigas and a partial humerus from a P. gigas. The humerus is one of the largest a museum fellow has seen. Then on to my only mammalian carnivore, the Tasmania Tiger or Thylacine: Thylacinus Cynocephalus. Now to what Australia is known for! Big reptiles! First up, my Croc jaws. I believe these all to be Pallimnarchus pollens. I'll update this with some pics of scutes, verts and some teeth later. And @Andy, here you go. The giant lizard, Megalania prisca (Varanus priscus). And to finish up, the largest pieces of my collection, the largest marsupial known, Diprotodon optatum: Ok ok, there is a Zygomaturus trilobus in there (2 to the left of the ruler in first pic) and an Euowenia robusta (directly left in first pic). The bone is a Diprotodon radius, beside that is a molar and a partial incisor. To the right of that radius on top (all first pic) is a juvenile D. optatum. Thanks for your time, Cheers, Troy.
  22. Hi everyone...can these be an Ostrea Carinata? I don't know the provenance. Thanks
  23. Hi I just come back from offerton (Stockport uk) found some Carboniferous plants
  24. I own some property in Blanco County, Texas and there are many fossils and fossil imprints embedded in the rock along the creek that runs through the property. I would love to know what these fossils are. I am posting just 2 pics because of size restrictions. I know nothing about fossils but am fascinated by the ones I have found. Any help would be appreciated.
  25. Hey! We went to Florida last summer and had the pleasure of doing a fossil hunt with Jeff (@jcbshark), which was great . My family has vacation right now and decided to go to Florida again, but I couldn't join them unfortunately, because I don't have vacation at the moment . They loved the hunt last year and wanted to go again, so Jeff kindly offered to take them on a hunt again last Sunday! My family had a great time hunting with Jeff, Chris (@Search4) and his wife Liz, and the finds were amazing! Thanks a million guys My family had a awesome time and they're thrilled with the finds! Some of the finds Kind regards, Angie
