  1. pyritized ammo's

    I ran into these the other day and have no idea where I got them. I got these many many years ago. Im hoping someone can tell me more info? I know, tuff to tell without formation and all that, but really have no idea. Im thinking north africa? Gots about 200 or 300 of these little things. I dont want them, just tryiing to figure out all the info so i can sell them. RB
  2. Cold blustery day on the north coast of Normandy at Villers sur Mer The rock strata starts with upper callovian to the middle Oxfordian Jurassic capped with Lower cenomanian upper greensand Cretaceous
  3. Another trip to the Callovian

    I took another trip to my old stomping grounds in the Wutach Valley a couple of days ago. There was a particular corner at one of the exposures in the Callovian to which I'd been giving some thought, so I decided it was time to tackle it. As usual, I forgot to take my camera. Sorry . Suffice to say, it was a successful dig and I took a couple of photos of the finds in the raw once I got home. Then everything went awry. First of all, my air abrader decided to stop working and then the photos disappeared into thin air. I know I took them. They didn't show up as I was uploading them, but I wasn't paying attention because of some other ones on the memory card, so maybe they just got deleted automatically when I removed the card. Anyway, I sent out a distress call to the man who constructed my abrader and managed to get it going again with the help of his advice. Here are the first ones I got done. More to come later. Homeoplanulites sp. 6cm. The neat thing about this one is that it's got something on the back as well: A Serpula sulcata tube worm sitting on a piece of shell. Bullatimorphites sp. 3cm. Another, somewhat larger at 13cm., Homeoplanulites sp.
  4. Ammonite

    I found this ammonite when i split some shale at runswick bay. It looks different from the others maybe because it has been crushed? Can anybody ID? I wet it to try to make it easier to see.
  5. Well Hello everyone.. As promised here are some of the pictures of our finds with a group of about 25 at the Ladonia Fossil Park on the North Sulphur River. We had a great time searching thru the pebbles and edges of the cliffs. a couple of bone fragments were found but nothing major. We found several gastropods in some matrix and did some sifting at the gravel bars. We did find a broken arrow head but no shark teeth in the area. Here are some pictures of our finds. Enjoy as I do have some questions i'll ask on the ID Forum.
  6. Tiny Ammonites ID

    Looking for an ID on two tiny ammonites that I have had in my collection for a long time. The id that I have on them is "Acanthoceras worthense" from the Cretaceous of Roanote, Texas. Just looking for confirmation or correction. Thanks.
  7. Butvar for pyritized fossils?

    I'm going to be making a trip to the Waco Pit this weekend, and I'm hoping to find some pyritized ammonites. If I get lucky and find some, can I use butvar to help preserve them? Also, is there any way to shine them up just a bit? I know a harsh polishing scrub would damage them, but what about something like a toothbrush to get them clean?
  8. Hey everyone, I'm looking for trip suggestions for this December. My wife and I recently had a little time free up and we have flight/hotel points to redeem. We'd prefer somewhere that's not super cold (we're from Colorado) but something that also has some fun things to do besides collecting, like hiking or exploring. I've been considering trips to NC, SC, or the Peace River. I'd love to hear from anyone who would have some suggestions for places where we can vacation and I can get out for a few afternoons to look for cool specimens. I'd be particularly interested in fish/shark tooth locations, but invertebrates would also be cool (especially ammonites, trilobites, etc). Let me know what you guys think - any suggestion is appreciated!
  9. Jurassic Fall Trip

    Last Saturday I was invited to a collecting trip by a buddy of mine. It took us to the Tyrolian part of the Northern calcareous Alps. We worked at a condensed layer that contains a big part of the Jurassic, Hettangian stage(marine ammonoid zones of the Hettangian). Several ammonoid zones are given within this layer. It ranges from the upper Hettangian(the yellow/orange colored top of the layer) down to the grey limestone of the panorbis zone. We were lucky because our gained block from the layer was full of ammonoids. It was kept as it was by my friend. I kept a smaller block which was laterally beside it. The split pic show two big specimen of Psiloceras naumanni
  10. Lake Texoma

    Good Morning! My wife and kids are spending a few days on the Texas side of Lake Texoma (Gordonville, Texas). Are there any places nearby that might yield a few of the famous ammonites from this region? Thanks in advance, Daniel
  11. I would like to get some fossils to seed some areas for both my sons to find some interesting things and to better learn the diversity of what is out there. I was thinking shark teeth , ammonites and trilobites stuff like that can any one help with this. I could ether trade or buy doesn't matter I'm just looking for a variety of stuff.
  12. I recently found this pair of Pleuroceras ammonites when splitting some concretion material I brought back from Buttenheim in Bavaria, Germany which I visited last May. From the Pliensbachian Spinatum Zone, Lower Jurassic. I wish I brought back more of that concretion material since it was so rich in complete ammonites.

  16. Hi, I have these two same sized Hildoceras, I'm thinking one is a Juvenile as can see the mouth border and one is a large one that has broken, would this be correct and would you say both specimens are the same ? Thanks.
  17. Books for a beginner

    Hi there, I'd like to learn more about paleontology and was wondering which books would you recommend for a beginner? I'm looking for books on ammonites, trilobites and dinosaur paleobiology. Also are there any books on Ankylosaurids around? Thank you for your help. There are so many books I don't know where to start. Jojo

    For thinking I'm not an ammonite collector, I do seem to have a few. Just wish I could find the rest of them. in boxes somewhere. Someday.
  24. Indianapolis Children's Museum

    Hello, I was stopping through Indianapolis and gave their children's museum a try. It was surprisingly enjoyable! The museum covered topics from agriculture to racing to dinosaurs! These photos are from the dinosaur section. I followed the signs to the Dinosphere. I walked through the entrance and down the ramp. At the end of the ramp was a Sarcosuchus cast (no picture sorry). Following the path I emerged into a huge planetarium like structure filled with dinosaurs.
  25. Hi, stumbled on this with the kids. We are all curious as to what it could have been, of anything at all. Really know nothing at all and probably sound silly, but best guess is ammonites? Or is it something completely different, if ever organic? Thanks in advance James
