  1. Big Brook Ammonite Genus?

    When fossil hunting in Big Brook yesterday, I came across an ammonite fossil that was very well preserved for the area! It was multiple chambers put together! I'm just wondering if it is possible to tell the genus of the animal, any help would be much appreciated! Thank you! -Snag
  2. Ammonite?

    Hello all i’m A bit apologetic about posting this after seeing some of the incredible finds folks are making but... I ask. Is this a fragment of ammonite? If so it would only be my second so I’d be pretty happy. 1/2 inch long. Thank uou
  3. My 9 year old daughter’s collection had outgrown the old shelves so we took a trip to Ikea today to get something more suitable. Though I don’t think it’ll be long before this one is full too... From top to bottom; ‘Ice Age’ A mammoth tooth, couple of mammoth ribs and a few other bits Purchases A few things we’ve bought, including some fish, a nice display of pecten and a few teeth (plesiosaur, mosasaur, spino) North Yorkshire finds The best of our finds on the coast (excluding ammonites) including a lot of belemnites, bivalves and a couple of ichthyosaur verts Other purchases A potamon and a pea crab, a few trilobites and other bits and pieces Ammonites Nearly all found ourselves on the coast but a couple of purchases too. Local river finds Some rugose coral, crinoids, stigmaria and a few brachiopods Hoping to add plenty of interesting new fossils with a week on the Jurassic Coast in August
  4. Bunch of fossils, might buy

    The ones I know are the crinoid plate, knighta, PA fossil fern, dactylioceras, random ammonite, two moroccon trilobites. However, I have no idea what the middle yellow like imprint is nor the two species of black trilobite in shale. And then the two upper left fossils have me clueless. Wanted to know what they are before I consider buying. Thanks again for any help. Again, no location or collection information.
  5. Peruvian ammonites and kem kem tooth

    Hi guys I would appreciate your help identifying these fossils I’m sorry I don’t know any more than what is in the title i was thinking the tooth was maybe croc but which one I’m not sure
  6. Ammonite Drawing

    Has anyone got any advice on drawing ammonites accurately? It is often the ribs which identify an ammonite, so they are very important to get right and while I my observational skills are fairly good, I find it hard to believe people like Ernst Haeckle relied purely on observation. I don't strive for Haeckle's realism as I draw in a more sketchy manner, but I do strive for accuracy all the same. Is there a sort of formula to plot ammonite ribs? Thanks!
  7. My 5-year-old son and I found this giant fossil in a shallow creekbed near central Austin, TX, yesterday. It's about 10 inches in diameter and we think it's an ammonite, though it's very worn and we're not totally sure. Would love any thoughts! Thank you so much!
  8. Hey Everyone, Has anyone found a Eutrephoceras dekayi from NSR? If so, was it only 2mm or smaller in size? I really want one but man my eyes will have a hard time finding it. Planko
  9. Ammonite ID Help

    I have studying ammonite anatomy and nomenclature as well as the local geology where I have been hiking. Today I rough prepared several ammonites and feel like I can make an educated attempt to name 2 of 3 that I worked on. I am reasonably certain they are from member three of the Matanuska Formation in the Talkeetna Mountains. I have shared some pictures of where I found one on the snow at the bottom of an avalanche so pictures of that one first as it is new to me. In my effort to learn these will describe why I believe it is Gaudryceras tenailiratum; wide umbilicus, course ribs, rounded venter, pattern of major rib separated with repeating pattern of secondary ribs, the ribs are asymmetrical with the anterior side sloping in concave slope and the slopes abruptly. I did not prepare the back side as it was a double and left the mold from the other ammonite as I think it pretty cool. The next one also is ribbed and I believe is Neophylloceras ramosum and base that decision on the pictures from the Gological Survey Professional Paper 432 as well as the description. I have seen these one many times and have a few in the garden. I found that prepping them I have become quite attached as it takes time and learn the morphology as cleaning the fossil. This one had several shells in the matrix and I left a portion of one. Will make another post for the third ammonite Thanks in advance for any helpl!!!
  10. Whitby finds

    Fairly slim pickings today but we picked these up and don’t see so many of them. Any ideas on the bivalve? Is the ammonite Pleuroceras Solare ? Thanks for looking
  11. Ammonite Anatomy and Terms

    In my goal to identify ammonites I have been seeing in Alaska have had to learn much such as ammonite anatomy and terms. My scientific illustrator, graphic artist wife helped me with these depictions of a generic ammonite. I have been reading about the various ways ammonites are described in the scientific papers and needed to be able to learn them for the descriptions to make sense. I would like input from those more knowledgeable than myself to see if I have this cheat sheet accurate. See attached PDF. Thanks for any input. Ammonite Anatomy & Terms.pdf
  12. Uk ammonites

  13. France pyrite ammonite id

    I was given this ammonite from France as a gift,a small part is gone outside.Does anyone know what species or age this is? Sorry but I dont have the formations and age. Also a short question,if I put it in a bag would it prevent pyrite disease?
  14. I won't get to do much posting from the road, but since Mike opened the door showing off some of the wisconsin ordovician finds he found and helped my wife and I collect, I figured I would add a teaser from Glendive, Montana where I finally found my first ammonites in the Pierre shale south of town. This little guy was one of my favorite singles because its exposed on one side and completely encrusted with yellow selenite crystals on the other. I will take some clearer pics once we get home and get pieces cleaned up a little
  15. I am working again these days, but on Wednesday, I got off early enough that I made a trip to a creek in northern Hill County. Its limestone walls are full of fossils, but the limestone is very hard. It is obvious that I need to get better at chiseling fossils out of limestone. I could get lots of practice in this creek. Macrostrat shows the area where I was as being right on the border of the Fredericksburg and Washita Groups. The first thing I noticed about this creek was how many Gryphaea (devil's toenail) oysters there were. Most are pretty small, but they are everywhere. There are more of them in the creek than all other fossils combined, including lots of limestone pieces just full of small ones like the one in this photo.
  16. Aloha! Planning a short trip to California before I move further away, I was always fascinated by fossils. Are there any dig sites in California that rent out tools? I would love to find a trilobite or ammonite! Any tips would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks!
  17. Hello everyone, I found this bad boy about a year ago in Wyoming. It was in a 100’ ravine and I tore my calf getting it out. I’ve tried to prep it out myself, but the matrix is extremely tough-I’ve spent a few hours with my CP9361, but I don’t have the time, tools, or skill to finish this. I’m guessing that it’s all or mostly in there, but who knows. It’s pretty heavy at around 40 or 50 lbs, but the preserved part that is extruding is very tough, almost metallic. Im looking to pay someone to prep this out for me-I really want to display this thing, especially considering the injury I sustained getting it out of the hole. If anyone has suggestions, or is willing to give it a go, let me know. cheers -J
  18. ammonite ID thread

    Hi guys, hope everyone is doing well. In my free time I've been working on properly labeling my fossils. Now, not being an expert, I'm not quite sure of all the ID's but I'm not about to flood the forum with ID requests. So here are some of the ammonites I'm least sure about. If anyone could provide any more information on formations and ages etc. that would be great! Even if its hard to acquire more info on them, it will be a fun opportunity to showcase some of my ammonites. 1. 2. 3.darellia semicostata, burton bradstock 4.label says Dichotomoceras bifurcatoides from the middle oxfordian of poitiers, france, looks like persiphinctes spp to me though
  19. Dear TFF, I have these two Callovian ammonites for exchange. The first is on matrix and wood wax has been applied to it. I would like paleozoic material (especially devonian invertebrates) for my teaching collection, but I am open to other proposals. Thank you.
  20. Rock or Ammonite?

    Found this while I was fishing. Can't tell if it's an ammonite or a rock. It does have that spiral pattern very slightly. Plus, when I turn it on its side, it looks like there's some indication of a small chamber. What's your input? Ammonite or rock?
  21. Hello, Firstly, I would like to thank everyone for their continued support in answering questions for someone who has now ventured into fossil hunting and procurement. I purchased the attached ammonite pair some time ago and I would like to get advice on quality and possible additional restoration I can do on my own. I’m not sure if I can get the dull face better polished. I’m also not sure what to do with the external sides. Is this also a very good quality specimen and therefore, I should put further interest in getting the pair in better Condition? That may be a loaded question as it may be simply a matter of opinion but I’m just interested in professionals’ advice.
