  1. Ichthyosaur stomach contents

    From the album Marine reptiles and mammals

    Cross sections of the stomach, full of squid/cephalopod hooks and beaks, of an early Jurassic ichthyosaur (Stenopterygius quadriscissus). One slice has the animals ribs, the lighter tan objects, around the stomach, while the other is entirely of the stomach contents.
  2. Found this that I believe is a cephalopod today at a devonian spot with imported material, I haven't seen a cephalopod with a bulbed tip before so I am not sure if it's some sort of pathology of a species or it's own species.
  3. Hi Everyone, I suddenly have a work trip to the Black Hills of South Dakota coming up next week and I'd like to get out and collect some fossils along the way. I'm driving from Denver to Lead, SD and will be driving north on HW 85 and 18 through Newcastle. I'd be really happy to get a few stops in along the way and any potential information would really be great. Unfortunately, I won't have a ton of time to be able to stop and really dig, so some road cuts or target formations would be super helpful for surface collecting. I'm open to every type of fossil. I know there's a lot of fossils in that section of the state so I'm looking forward to hopefully finding some decent stuff! Thanks! Caleb
  4. Unidentified Object from East Tennessee

    Hello all, I found this in a steam in East Tennessee about 20 years ago. I'm new to fossils so I was wondering if anyone could help identify. I spoke with a marine archaeologist who thought it might be a cephalopod or part of a trilobite. Thank you, Michael
  5. I have not gotten out much locally this summer due to a few issues. Forced myself to step away from my current stresses and hunt some fossils along the Minnesota Iowa border. Found some nice brachs, cephalopods, rugosa coral, gastropods, and fisherites. Nothing special, but it was nice being out again. When I returned home, I was going to hammer a little matrix away from a few of my collections. A large slab had a worn cephalopod in it and I was going to break it out and put it in with the fossils I take to the children's sand pit at a local park. With one swing of the hammer, I decided this one was NOT going to the park! It is amazing how often this happens to me. I wonder how many nice fossils have been left behind only because I quit breaking the rock. Two beautiful Maclurites and a Hormatoma laid hidden underneath the matrix surrounding the cephalopod.
  6. The missus and I spent a good part of the day at our spot in the middle Devonian. I chopped out several large slabs while Deb split some of the smaller chunks and managed some overburden duty. The split in the wall may seem promising, but there are a lot of interlocking pieces that have to be removed in sequence, something like taking apart a jigsaw puzzle, but needing to locate the key stones first.
  7. New Eurypterid fossils

    I went again to Lang's Quarry for the day to look for Eurypterids and associated fauna and had a very successful day with Mr Lang.
  8. Hello all. This is a cephalopod that was found by Darktooth Dave on our last outing at Deep Springs Road. (Middle Devonian, Moscow Formation, Hamilton Group, Lebanon, NY. ) He kindly gifted me the slab this was in. While trying to break down the slab, as it was quite huge, (2ft by 2ft, by 3" thick) the darn thing popped out. No other pieces to remove, just the one. This is the first slightly coiled cephalopod of this type that I've seen from there, so I'm struggling with an ID. Not only that, but it has an encrusting example of Hederella filiformis on it. Ultra cool specimen! Thanks again, @Darktooth! I'm guessing this is either a Gomphoceras, or a Cyrtoceras? Anyone have any other thoughts, on genus/species? Thanks for any help, and for looking.
  9. Ordovician - Southern Ontario - ID please?

    Hello. I found this in Mimico Creek in Toronto, Ontario. Could someone please tell me what it might be? I thought maybe some kind of cephalopod, but really have no idea. Thanks! Camille
  10. Managed to get out to a site I haven’t been to before, and found lots of cephalopods and gastropods. I recently got back into geocaching (my husband and I used to geocache as students about 10 years ago, back when you had to use a handheld gps unit. Now you can just use a smartphone.) Anyways, we didn’t collect at this location, since the geocache makes it an excellent learning resource for people who don’t know much about fossils. A few photos attached.
  11. My daughter and I have started fossil hunting and came across this a few weeks ago. Pretty sure the ribbed-item (near the tip of my thumb) is a cephalopod, but unsure what the rest of the white pieces are? Thought they might be pieces of bone, or possibly wood? Not sure? Hoping someone could shed some light. Found this on the Bruce Peninsula (Ontario, Canada), on the Georgian Bay shoreline. Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks, Kristin.
  12. Thedford Area Finds

    Spent a solid six hours in full sun and heat, with biting deer flies, moving rock at my secluded spot. Temps were about 30 C, but closer to 40 with humidity and heat off the rocks. Mostly splitting mid Devonian rock from the Widder Fm. Mostly looking for trilobites, which can be a game of inches... too far up or down in the strata, you get blanks or brachs. First up, a few brachs. These can cluster up in massive beds. The first one was fairly large but I left it there. I did keep the second one as the long tips are fragile and rarely come out whole.
  13. OH Ordovician Cephalopod ID Needed

    Hello all. I would love to know more about this fossil plate cephalopod inprint approximately 6 inches long. Here are some of the details about where it was found... Hueston Woods State Park in Preble County, southwestern Ohio; In the Rock bed along Four Mile Creek under Main Loop Road Bridge; Ordovician period. Found in late Nov. 2017 lying fossil side down among a huge pile of rocks and plates. It was dumb luck that I picked it up and flipped it before moving it to analyze some of the other fossil plates it was covering. Really interested in the full hierarchical level info if it's available. Thanks for your time and input. This noob appreciates it!

  23. It Pays to Look Closely!

    After the MAPS fossil show a few weeks ago, I had an hour to play around in a little rock in the Coralville, Ia area before departing for home. A piece of what I think was a cephalopod caught my eye and I tossed it into my bucket as I continued to scrutinize the shelf of Devonian rock in front of me. A few very nice coral pieces were added to my bucket before hitting the road. I didn't pay too much attention to my finds until yesterday. But as I was getting to put the cephalopod piece into the "fossils for kids" pile, I noticed something on it's surface. Such beauty bestowed to a junk piece of cephalopod! One must take the time to look closely or he/she often misses the diamond in the rough. Enjoy this simple fossil grouping.
