  3. Bull Canyon Formation

    Here are some of my Bull Canyon Formation fossils from New Mexico.
  4. Barely a month had gone by since my last trip to New Mexico and Colorado, but I already had plans for this trip in the works. Primary focus this time, which was a solo trip, was fossil collecting, visiting well known sites that have been on my radar for quite some time. I flew out to Salt Lake City and drove directly to Kemmerer, WY. My first stop there was Fossil Butte National Monument: Here is a view of the visitors center (free admission) and the surrounding barren, but awesome landscape that surrounds it:

  7. New footprints from today

    Just found these today. Two different slabs about 4 feet long. Some closeups of one of them.
  8. Possible Triassic tracks

    Mercer County, New Jersey, USA. Hello, I recently found these two specimens and was wondering if they look good for Triassic tracks. If so, I heard they are very difficult to attribute to a certain species but any information or leads on that would be greatly appreciated (or should I just stick to the Cretaceous streams ). Note - these are NOT from the spot I found my last trackway (#5 on link below), I've just been obsessed lately with finding similar spots close to home. As always, all help is greatly appreciated! -Frank
  9. More tracks

    Found more tracks! Been digging out and flipping these big chunks of rock since all the tracks are on the underside. I stand corrected on my loose amateur term dinosaurs - archosaurs is the correct term.
  10. Resin transfer method Keichousaurus

    Just a question regarding the resin transfer method. I’m looking at a Keichousaurus fossil that I am considering purchasing. While the fossil looks good the seller has stated that the matrix was very unstable and he utilized the resin transfer method to stabilize the matrix. How effective is this method? The matrix looks very thin to me and any inquiries have gone unanswered. I do not have any photos of this specimen but I can direct anyone interested via pm to the very popular site the specimen is selling on. If that’s not a violation of forum rules. Thanks.
  11. Mud Ripples, maybe some roots

    The remains of a muddy area.
  12. Dinosaur footprints

    Found these in East Central Arizona. A deep wash has cut through a rock ledge containing lots of the footprints. Still working on trying to get some of the bigger rock slabs hauled out.
  13. Multiple fossils found at Aust Cliffs, Bristol

    I recently visited Aust Cliffs by the River Severn in Bristol, UK. I believe the fossils are almost entirely Triassic, as the other layers aren't fossiliferous. These were found in broken blocks on the foreshore but most likely originated at the Rhaetian Penarth series at the top of the cliff, as this is where the bone beds are found. I can post more photos if needed, however these are the best I could get at the time on my phone. Any help would be appreciated #1 #2 #3 The black piece is hard and shiny if that helps #4 The shiny part is just over 5mm long. It looks like scales on a fish? Due to the size this is the most I could zoom in while keeping it in focus. #5 This is in a much larger block but the fossil is about 15mm long. Is it bone?

    A really nice and very rare 2.5 cm long Ceratodus (lungfish) tooth from a triassic "Bonebed" from a quarry in southern Germany (Baden-Württemberg). One of my best finds from there so far
  19. I am leaving shortly to spend just over a week in England, more specifically in the Liverpool area, and will be taking a day trip along the coast of Wales to Rhyl as well. I've done some basic research and found that Liverpool sits right on top of Triassic bedrock, and Rhyl on top of Permian bedrock. Are there any sites that would be within my realm to visit and collect at? If so, are there any rules and regulations that I, an amateur from outside the country, need to know about before I go? If there are none, are there any noteworthy shops that I may be able to visit where I can buy some local specimens? I enjoy bringing home a fossil from my trips each time I travel somewhere, the more local the better. Thanks in advance!
  20. Efforts are ramping up to have this region added to the Canadian geopark family. The UNESCO folks just finished their visit. Let's wish them all the success! Possible Nova Scotian United Nations geopark a hidden gem - Keenan
  21. Cowboy Pass, Utah Ammonites

    Picture Heavy! On my first day in Millard County, I started out at the U-DIG quarry. I got lots of trilobites, but nothing too spectacular. (I'll share them in a separate post as there is quite a bit of prep work to do!) Honestly, I got a bit bored at the quarry. Sure, I enjoy digging fossils, but the challenge just isn't there. So after four hours, I decided to drive through Marjum Pass to Cowboy Pass. This is the view exiting Marjum Pass. (That is a truly epic drive on its own, but I didn't stop at any of the fossil sites in there!) Almost there! For those that don't know, distance and time behaves a bit strangely when solo in the desert. Finding road signs is even stranger. If you do decide to do a Millard County run, you'd better be able to use a topo map and a compass because you cant trust GPS maps and mobile phones have no service out here. I found that even the road atlas was untrustworthy. It took me three months of research to pinpoint the exact locations of the exposed Thaynes Formation areas of the Pass. Doing the homework paid off as I was able to find the "easy" site almost immediately. I'm not really into giving out exact locations, but I will say "The Book" is correct and accurate and that this photo shows the landmark referred to in an old Millard County rockhound guide. I know I could have just asked folks where they were, but a big part of this hobby for me is the satisfaction of confirming my research skills. One can easily drive to the "easy" site, but the other two (actually three...) require a pretty rugged hike. However, as you are about to see, it is well worth it. I found my first in the overburden some hack left behind. In fact, at the easy site I didn't even need to use any tools as whoever was there last ignored dozens of nice specimens! I will also add, I hope it wasn't someone from here...as I cleaned up all your %#!$%^&* trash for you. Three full bags of garbage and you left a virtually brand new gad pry under the pile of beer cans. Thanks. I needed a gad pry later! Anyway, Here are some of the specimens I collected from the various sites. Most of them need lots of prep work. Here's a few as they were found: I'll post more pictures at a later date as there is a lot of prep work to do on many of the specimens! So, in short, Cowboy Pass is well worth the excursion. Be prepared to do some real work, and study up on the site before you go. Also, don't be a jerk and leave a mess like the one I found...that is how public lands get closed to the public.
  22. Hi all! I've been active in the field for a bit but I've been MIA for a while, dealing with personal life. BUT I have come back online. Have some adventures I have yet to post. So if you're curious about the geology of that part of the world from the eyes of this Canadian hobbit, swing by my blog. Don't be shy and subscribe if you want to keep updated. I'll try to add some of the blog info in this forum too so that I can reach as many folks as possible so they can see the amazing stuff in my backyard.

  24. Fossil reptiles from West Timor

    Mulder and Jagt (2019) came out with a new paper concluding that the putative mosasaur Globidens timorensis is actually an ichthyosaur related to Tholodus and Xinminosaurus, and that the sediments on West Timor in which it was found are Triassic in age. There is also another Triassic marine reptile found in West Timor, the Mixosaurus-like ichthyosaur Mixosaurus timorensis. Is anyone not familiar with little-known marine reptiles from West Timor. I'm guessing that some Triassic ichthyosaurs that swam in the waters of present-day China traversed the waters of present-day Indonesia. Eric W.A. Mulder and John W.M. Jagt (2019).
