Hello, want to share a picture of some of my finds from my first official fossil hunting trip. We explored a the gravel bed of a river which I knew had formed caverns up the stream in the limestone formations. Tertiary Although reaching the actual limestone formations is (probably) impossible, since it's in the middle of the rain forest, as soon as we got there we saw limestone pieces the river had carried down. We started looking and found some really neat ones (picture), in my opinion Top left is a trace fossil, top right is a bivalve with both pieces on! with lots of sediment in the middle. I'm pretty excited to do some more exploring when I get the time! I haven't cleaned them yet, i want to take some of the excess sediment off the fossil but I have to do some more researcher to figure out the best way to do so.
A slab full of late Ordovician fauna of the Georgian Bay Formation of Toronto, mostly containing whole complete Modiolopsis. Found at a collapsed cliff of shale at Mimico creek. Many specimens have crushed parts and their bits of crushed parts got thrown all over the slab, so probably this was a storm turbulence-caused death.
