  1. Northeast Arkansas Ammonite?

    Two fossils from Northeast Arkansas southern ozarks.Found in shallow red clay wash.Possible ammonite or mabe gastropods I do not know?This area is not known for cephalopod fossils.Lower Ordovician? I would like to know what others thank. An ID would be great.Thanks.
  2. Please help identify

    I found this hiking up a rock bed after heavy rains at the headwaters of the Buffalo River near Fallsville, Arkansas. It looks like a fish to me but I have no experience in this topic. Please let me know if you have an idea. It is approximately two inches in length.
  3. I found this one yesterday. I recently got back into the hobby of rock tumbling and was looking for rocks for that when I came across a few fossils in a creek bed in North Central Arkansas, USA. This one resembles a "pigs in a blanket" sausage wrapped with crescent dough. I thought the inside was just dirt and mud but it is solid. It is 2 inches at the longest point. The hole is approximately an inch in diameter.
  4. Found In Benton co Arkansas. Looking for arrow heads in a creek. Just looked interesting. The pick with the tape is dry the other wet
  5. What do I have?

    I know nothing of fossils. But when out hiking I keep an eye open for arrow heads and other rocks that look out of the ordinary. While hiking an old indian cliff dwelling trail, I saw this rock. It has a strange look to it like its a fossil of some sort. Do I just have a worn smooth rock or is it something else? Thanks in advance. It is approx. 2 inches long and 3/4 wide
  6. TN gal needing ID of fossil find?

    I found some interesting bones/rock/fossils?? Needing help to determine if they are really fossils. Found in North Central Arkansas on an exposed / eroding hill side leading to a river. I dug many of these out of red sticky clay. I really appreciate any help I can get, I’ve had these for 2 years and it’s finally time to see if I unearthed a remarkable find. Fingers crossed
  7. Turtle

    Can someone please identify what kind or turtle that this belongs too and the General age of this fossil. Thank you.
  8. Arkansas ferns x3 and Annularia ID.

    These were fossils my dad found over 20 years ago I think and gave to me maybe 10 yrs ago. I had completely forgotten about them. My dad use to be a land man for an oil and gas company. So he traveled the area extensively trying to get leases to drill for gas. I believe they are from somewhere near Mansfield, Arkansas from the Atoka or McAlester formations, both of which are Pennsylvanian. Any my help with ID would be greatly appreciated. First Piece The longest blade is about 55 mm long by 13 mm wide. A close up of some of the blades on the left side. I think there are 2 varieties here, not sure if the arching one is like the ones in the center and to the left of it. The center one is the top side of the blade and the one to the left and arching one appear to be the underside of the blades. It’s cool to be able to see that much detail. Then there is a different variety on the top left corner. I’ll take some close ups of those and post in a bit. A pic of the right side a bit closer up. I think in this pic there are at least 3 varieties of ferns. The ones on the top right pointing downwards which may be the same as those on the top left above. Then the long blade in the center running vertically. I think it is the only one of its kind represented on this plate. Then at the bottom running mostly horizontally. I have no clue as to the genus or even group of Medullosans. If I had to guess I’d say Neuropteris for all 3, but it’s a wild guess. Second piece is an Annularia of some kind I believe. You can se the long slender stems and then many long, slender leaves, which appear to have numerous veins running the length of the leaf. They are all cross crossing each other so it’s a bit chaotic to try to isolate one cluster. This is the back side. It has a couple stems running across it. There is more stuff in between layers on both pieces.
  9. Beaver, AR

    Found this bivalve near the bank of Tablerock Lake in Beaver Arkansas. Looking for help to ID. Modern or old?
  10. Eureka Springs AR

    Found this one the shore of Beaver Lake in Arkansas. Pretty sure it is geological . Any ideas?
  11. Mississippian trilobits

    I recently came across some "old" fossils I found a few many years ago, which included some slabs of fossils from the Imo formation in Van Buren County, Arkansas. The site is an abandoned phosphate mine known as the Peyton Creek site. It is about 0.5 miles east of highway 65, and there are also some exposures of the same rocks along the highway roadcuts nearby. The Imo is upper Mississippian and is sometimes included as part of the Pitkin limestone. It is apparently an outstanding site for cephalopods and ammonoids, but I didn't know that back then. The slabs contain several small trilobite pygidia, and below is a photo of the best one (about 5mm wide) along with a couple of others (now you have to look for them ). I was going to post here to see if I could identify the genus and possibly the species, but I think I found my answer already. I decided to post anyway, as a reference and to hopefully confirm the id, although I doubt the pygidia alone are enough. I believe this is Paladin imoensis, as I just discovered that the holotype was collected from the same abandoned quarry.
  12. Rock house fossils

    I just bought a rock house and several of the rocks have these fossils. Can anyone tell me anything about them? I know very little about fossils. They are 3"-4" across and raised about 1/4"-1/2"
  13. Arkansas Fossil

    Found back in 1998 in a new neighborhood in Rogers, Arkansas area where we had purchased a new house....the neighborhood before establishment was hundreds of acres of cow pasture and farming land. The neighborhood was new and the land my house was on was fresh turned dirt. My son kept this all these years and is now in college, he always called this his "dinosaur bone" and we have always wondered would it could be.
  14. Petrified turtle?

    Found close to a river in along with some other interesting finds. Need help identifying type of rock and also if it is some type of petrified turtle or other reptile. Thank you for any help that can be sent my way. Location Murfreesboro Arkansas.
  15. I'm preparing a teacher education workshop which includes a fossil hunting and identification activity. The teachers are coming from many states across the country. I'd like to include some suggestions of sites where they could replicate the things they learn and experience during the workshop with their students in the vicinity of their respective schools. I have the Indiana schools covered. For the ones near Dallas, I'm thinking Mineral Wells Fossil Park (and maybe Ladonia for older, more adventuresome students). The ones I need help with are sites within field trip range of the following: Austin, TX ( @Uncle Siphuncle, @KimTexan, @BobWill, @erose)? Atlanta, GA Golden, CO Palm Bay, FL (near Melbourne) Naples, FL (any shell dump piles accessible to and suitable for k-12?) @digit ? Bentonville, AR Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, either posted here or via PM. I have alternative activity suggestions for them (e.g. bags of matrix to sift, etc) if they can't do a field trip, but there's nothing quite like the experience of hunting and discovery in the field... I would have done backflips if my grade school had had a fossil trip...
  16. What is this?

    Stumbled across this fossil while exploring a creek bed in the Ozark national forest.. wondering if you all could help me identify it?
  17. LIDAR based characterization technology has helped analyze the first Dinosaur Trackways in the State of Arkansas better than just producing rice and soybeans http://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0190527
  18. North East Oklahoma

    Looking for like minded individuals who would like to meet up to hunt together and or take short trips to find new areas. I live in the NE Oklahoma area around Grand Lake. SW Missouri and NW Arkansas are both close so any one in those areas I am open. Reply to this thread or PM me and let's meet up. I know of a few areas around here but looking for others.
  19. Posting for a friend

    Found in a field in northwest Arkansas. Said they have come across a few of them in the area. Dan
  20. Horn Coral?

    Found this while searching a creek for points near Huntsville AR. If this is horn coral I'm curious what other fossils I might expect to find in the area. Thanks! Found this guy in the same creek
  21. Can anyone help

    Can someone tell me what kind of tooth it is
  22. One More: fossilized poop?

    This is one more item that I found in Arkansas. Maybe I just have a big imagination, but could this be fossilized scat? I saw similar photos online and the person who posted it called it "turtle poop". I would appreciate any other suggestions as to what it could be. Thanks!
  23. In a month, I will be traveling to the Crater of Diamonds. For some reason, my mom has a new obsession with finding a diamond. But I'm hoping to find some fossils around there or along the way in Arkansas, Missouri or even Eastern Oklahoma. We will be traveling from the St. Louis area, probably taking Interstate 30. I've already scoured this website and Google for hours and I still haven't found any solid leads. I'm a member of the Eastern Missouri Society of Paleontology (EMSP) and they weren't any help. I'm also interested in any good rock shops or fee mining places around (except quartz). Any help would greatly appreciated. PM me if you don't wish to have your locations exposed to the public.
  24. I believe this is a partial denticle. Does anyone know what shark or ray it would have belonged to? It was found in a Late Maastrichtian clay in Arkansas.
