  1. So today I was excited when this book came in. It is not in print anymore and I was lucky I managed to order this copy. It talks about the gastropods, cephalopods, and vermes of the Georgian Bay formation of Toronto, Ontario. It even has some nice detailed plates of what can be found in the formation. I never even knew vermes (worms?) can be found in the formation.
  2. Bison tooth

    This tooth was found at wasagaming beach in manitoba canada. National park staff have identified it as most likely from a bison but i am wonder what people think the age might be based on its looks
  3. Found this at the Ottawa River?

    Was checking out the riverfront in downtown Ottawa and came across this fossil. Any ideas on what I may be? It's Ordovician strata, could It be a headplate from a bony fish species?

  8. Fossil Hunting in Ottawa, ON

    Hey friends! It's been a while since I've posted. I've recently moved to Ottawa with my wife (we're expecting a little one). The other day I was out at Victoria Island and found a few trilobite frags. Does anyone know of any great fossil sites in the Ottawa area?? Cheers, Dylan
  9. Hello, New to the forum and collecting fossils in general. Went to my moms house and mentioned that I had been fossil hunting and she says "I have found some fossils before." and she pulls out this giant worm like thing. This was found in Port Hope Ontario possibly up to 25 years ago. I have included both a wet and dry picture. The fossil seems to have a dark red tinge to it. Also the back had a ton of fossils on it I have attached a picture of the back as well. Any help with an identification would be much appreciated. Thanks Folks and happy hunting:)
  10. About 71 million years ago, a feathered dinosaur that was too big to fly rambled through parts of North America, likely using its serrated teeth to gobble down meat and veggies, a new study finds. The newly named paleo-beast is a type of troodontid, a bird-like, bipedal dinosaur that's a close relation of Velociraptor. Researchers named it Albertavenator curriei, in honor of the Canadian province where it was found (Alberta), its stalking proclivity (venator is Latin for "hunter") and Philip Currie, a renowned Canadian paleontologist. https://www.livescience.com/59815-stalker-velociraptor-relative-discovered.html https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2017/07/170717091023.htm

  14. Hey everyone. So I am new to fossil hunting. Like completely new. I am taking a geology class and one of my assignments includes going fossil hunting! So fun. I have gone out twice and feel like I'm having no luck. However at the last minute I came across this. I am really not sure if it's just rock or something more. Since I am completely new at this hoping someone can help me. Thanks in advance for any insight.
  15. Greenops widderensis

    Acquired from @PaleoPat during a recent trade. This trilobite is originally from Arkona and is uncommon.
  16. Limpet fossil?

    Hello! Someone I know found this rock close to his house. The rock is very hard, can't make no scratch on it. I though it could be a fossil, like a limpet track or I don't know...? Does someone know what it is? Thank you! Fossile patelle?.pdf
  17. I tried to ID a fossil I found, but I had no success. I found it along the coast of the Bay of Fundy, close to Moncton, Canada. It says online that the area where the fossil was found is in the late Devonian - late Carboniferous period. Anybody have any idea what this fossil is?
  18. As above. After the silly Alioramus(?) locality mistake I made, I have taken on the colossal and necessary task of auditing all my locality info. Here's an area that has me stumped. Does anyone know if there's any late Cretaceous dino-bearing formations in Drumheller besides Horseshoe Canyon?
  19. Help identify possible shark tooth

    Hey everyone, I was hoping I could get your help in identifying what I think is a shark tooth? Embarrassingly enough it could just be a shell, but it looks an awful lot like a tooth to me. It's about 2" in length, if that helps, and I found it on the beach in Brackley, PEI. If it's a shark tooth, what shark does it belong to? And if it's not, what is it? If you have any ideas, I would love to know! It's really for curiosity's sake. Thank you! Here is the back-

  21. I found this close to a lake where My famaiky has a cottage and I do not know much about fossils. There appears to be a creature of some sorts as well as a salt water shell even though we are thousands of miles from any salt water.

  24. Site ideas

    I am likely headed to Western New York and Canada to do some fossil hunting 6/9 to 6/11. Originally I was leaving on 6/6. The first half of the trip has been cancelled by my club so I am looking for fun and interesting locations to hunt. I plan to leave Cincinnati Ohio really early on 6/6. I am looking for places heading east then I can turn north on 6/8 to hit the reminder of the scheduled trip. Anyone have some good ideas? Anyone want to join me and show me around your favorite locations? I would be interested in hitting sites in OH, PA, WV, MD or North of there heading towards Western New York. For a really good location I would be willing to venture further east. Thank you.
