    Went for a walk down the shoreline in Huntington Beach, California the day after a storm and found this. I have a video of it on my instagram, is there a way to get it here so that it shall pass admin gates? Sorry for the crappy close up of the conical shaped shell at the bottom.

  4. Last Trip of the Season

    The snow has arrived at the elevations that I like to hike covering up the fossil beds now. These pictures are from one of my last hikes in the Talkeetna Mountains and as you can see these are oversized fossils. The ice axe next to the clam is 30". Kobuk and one to the bigger ammonites measured at 65 cm diameter is another whopper. Ok, now a Where's Waldo picture. How many ammonites do you see in the picture? I have the answer and they as still are all still there in the outcrop, some are broken. The answer is nine ammonites. Until next year happy fossil hunting!

  20. Hi everyone, this is Matt again. My family's house had a close call today when we had a big tree fall near our house. I have 3 nice brachiopod fossils I found today I wanted to show everyone .
  21. I found this fossil in a mountain stream near Lovell, Wyoming. I was wondering what species it could be? It has a shell like some kind of clam. It also has 3 reddish brown stones in it that shimmer in the light. Could these be pearls? The rest of the fossil doesn’t have any reflective gleam in the light. I added blue arrows and circles to show where the possible pearls are at. The whole fossil is about 1 and 10/16 inch long x 1 and 1/4 inch wide x 3/4 inch in height (from the back of the shell to the tip of the highest pearl). Thanks!
  22. Hi everyone, this is Matt again. Today in the creek I found a nice fossil slab full of brachiopods and bivalves. Here are some photos:
  23. Thought I would share a few specimens that made it to the National collection in Denmark. Back in 2017 I found a Cyclaster sp. from a site in northern Jutland primarily known for it's commonly found Echinocorys sulcata. Out of around 150 primarily fragments found of Cyclaster sp. , roughly 5 were complete and only one fully inflated. Considering that they go through a rough process - First the material is excavated from the walls using a hydraulic excavator, then the material is spread out on the "floor" of the quarry and turned multiple times to reduce the moisture content, after which it is passed through an ore shoot and finally removed from the tailing's pile to a permanent resting place out of the way. This mature specimen together with a smaller immature specimen I donated, might be enough to add another species to Cyclaster, based on the "extra" rows of plates on the end near the periproct. I don't have a picture of the smaller specimen, but made a cast in silicone of it. The next specimen is from a famous fjord called Limfjorden, also in northern Jutland. It was found along the edges of the shore, moving back and forth in the waves and nearly didn't make it back with me because of how fragmented it looked when I first found it, I took it with me anyway since you never know, and it turned out to be an exceptionally large and well preserved specimen ( usually no bigger than 20mm, this specimen is 35mm). It is a clam called Cuspidaria precuspidata, the blob was some super glue I hastily applied to stabilize it in the field since I forgot my B72 bottle, not ideal but in a time of need you use what you have ;P The first specimen was declared Danekræ in the spring of 2019. The second speciman was declared Danekræ in the spring of 2020
