  1. Baryonyx tooth

    Hi all, I'm interested in getting a Baryonyx tooth and there is one available. But it seems to have had unnecessary restoration which has also been done poorly. I was just wondering what opinions are there on getting it? I would really like one but the restoration is putting me off. Is it still worth it or should I wait for a better one to come along? (if they ever do!) Thanks
  2. my display

    Got some minerals in there such as mesolite, malachite, pyrite and quartz, calcite, kyanite and quartz, stibnite, and a bunch more. I'm not able to identify all of these. All I know is they are from the Devonian time period and some ordovician.
  3. new display cabinets for 2019

    To start 2019 with a bang we bought 5 new glass display cabinets at a certain Swedish furniture shop. I spend the last day of 2018 to build the 5 cabinets so I could give some of my best specimens the display they deserve. after a few hours work and selection of the fossils this is how it turned out : most of those fossils are self collected in Belgium ,France and England. With lots of ammonites in the left cabinet fron Northern France an the two cabinets on the right with my Devonian cephalopods from Belgium. As for now I'm attending to my good intentions for 2019 : Labeling al the fossils in the cabinets I'll beposting details of every shelf in the days to come Here is a previeuw of the first cabinet and the 1st shelf: all the specimens from the same location: Cap-Blanc-Nez in France, mostly Cenomanian Ammonites Shelf 1:
  4. Hello All, hope you are having a happy new years. This fish tank had a very high mortality rate when my fish were in it. I lost two beautiful fish to its open space. Yep, they jumped out. I found them a few days later as little crisps. Not nice. That's when I drained it. It sat there for a good while all empty but then when i got my Ammo for Christmas that some of you saw, I needed a place to store it. I managed to cleanly detach the light from the filter's base and then used a velcro strip to reposition it so that the light would provide a cool view on the ammonite. Then I took the filter off, leaving some empty space towards the back. It really only took me forty five minutes, and that's because I had to go to our local CVS for the velcro strips.
  5. Cheaper Side Fossil Drawers

    Bolstered from Christmas and recent fossil hunting, my collection has quite outgrown it's original case. I have been looking around and found a really nice set of drawers at Ikea for around 130$ but which is slightly limited on drawer space. I don't exactly have a high budget, I'm prepared to pay at least 150 usd for anything, but before i'd buy I would like to ask you all if you knew any drawers and/or could point me in the right place. I understand I can't spend much with my budget, but it never hurts to ask! Thanks all, FA
  6. I recently just visited the University of Utah and they have a large display of petrified wood from all over. Here are some of them. large logs by the stairs
  7. Bivalvia collection

    Some Bivalvia from my study collection. Regards, ricardo
  8. Hi everyone ! I'm here to show you some of my new fossils which are also in my collection.This time something much different.I have mammoth bone parts,found in Danube river,place is called Ram,near Belgrade.I've got them as a gift from a friend. U can see first the part of the lower jaw of the Juvenile Mammoth,a scapula part,part of the mammoth molar and many parts of Mammoth tusk fragments.They are not from the same individual and it's unknown if it's from Woolly Mammoth,Mammuthus trogontherii or from Mammuthus meridionalis.Enjoy. Pozdrav, Darko
  9. Paleochris68's collection

    Hello ! I present you my very small collection. I started it last summer, so I do not have many pieces yet, but I prefer pretty pieces. I do not have the chance to search on the field, so I buy my fossils. We have: Keichousaurus Hui, I really like his broken tail Russian trilobite, Asaphus punctatus (I have not been able to label it yet). Restoration verified with violet lamp, less than 10% Spinosaurus tooth, correct quality, only glued but with pieces of the same tooth Last Acquisition: caudal vertebra spinosaurus I am going to buy other teeth of theropauds (carcharodontosaurs) in the next few months and I am mainly interested in dinosaurs fossils. The choice is unfortunately limited for the cheap parts (less than 1000 dollars) See you soon !
  10. My Small fossil collection

    Hi Nicky here! This is my small fossil collection which I started since I was 10 and expanded it when I was 18 If you have questions or have any suggestions for me please feel free to ask/tell My collection This is a overview of what I have. This is one of my favourites, the Spinosaurus I loved the creature when I first saw him in Jurassic park 3 and ever since it is one of my favourite carnivores! Carcharodon, A pretty tooth in my opinion. One of my newer tooth that I got, It is not specified what Kind of raptor it is but maybe you guys know? It's the smallest tooth that I currently own! Mosasaurus, one of the first teeth that I got and It is in my collection for a very long time. Plesiosaurus, This tooth is pretty cool in my opinion since it comes from the plesiosaurus which I find to be a very interesting reptile. Megalodon, Yes you read that right! a very bad condition meg tooth but never the less I find the unique look very cool. Otodus Obliquus, I fell in love when I saw the tooth and how it was stuck in the stone. Dalpiazia Stromeri, A tooth I got because it was one of the prey that the spinosaurus hunted on so I needed this one! Flexicalymene Retrorsa, My first trilobite and a cool looking one as well! Leptolepis, I found this fossil but I do not know allot about this creature so if you guys know more please tell me! Atlasaurus imelaki, Also a dinosaur that I do not know allot about but this piece was very cool. Oviraptor eggshell and a titanosauria eggshell, I always wanted a piece of a dinosaur egg so I got two shells! Mammoth hair and Amber with an insect, Cool things to own in my opinion. Dinosaur bone fragments, I picked these up on my trip in the USA when I was 10 good memories of visiting that shop :D. Ammonite, A small piece of ammonite which looked pretty cool to pick up. Whale ear, I got this from the same guy that gave me the Megalodon tooth in spain. Big ammonite, It is 40 cm in diameter and weights 14 kg this big ammonite is a big piece of my collection! Those were my fossils I got big plans to get more and bigger!
  11. My fossil collection

    This is my fossil collection please show us yours!!! These are my display fossils only The first picture is a large unidentified fossil shark tooth I recently bought from a local fossil store. The second is my display collection I put fossils in once they have been prepared or bought. The next photo is Madagascar copal it is about 9 million years old and it has multiple inclusions including fly's, wasps, and spiders. The next is an unidentified fish fossil in good shape but not too valuable. The fifth fossil is a trilobite (paralejurus) in Devonian limestone it is 385 million years old and was found in morocco I know the most about this one. And last but not least is my small polished chunk of Baltic amber it is 35-50 million years old and contains a winged insect inclusion as you probably know amber is fossilised tree resin and copal is hardened tree resin that is not quite fossilised. Thanks, HAPPY HUNTING!!!!!!!
  12. Rockin' Ric's Website Collection

    Hello Y'all! It's been awhile since I posted anything on The Fossil Forum. I have been able to put together a website of my collection which is still a work in progress. I will be adding more pictures and making more changes as I go along. Please check it out. I went Carboniferous fossil hunting last week but haven't had the chance to post any of the finds much less than wash them to get them ready to photograph. Stay tuned? www.rockinric81.wixsite.com/fossils
  13. Hello to everybody! I'm kinda new here, but before I start I must say I really love this forum! It has really great vibes and you instantly can tell that this is a good and friendly community! So, I am ziggycardon, I live in Belgium, close to the border of the Netherlands and when we start speaking geologically, I live on the same cretaceous sediments as where the first major Mosasaurus discoveries where done! Unfortunatly I have never been on a fossil hunt myself and everything currently in my collection was bought or given to me. But I hope to change that soon, as I am dying to go hunting myself. Maybe the Chalk sediments 3 km from my home would be a good place to start! For the rest, my job, my major hobby and my other main interest besides fossils are living animals. I currently work as the head of terrarium & aquarium in 3 different pet stores and I have quite a collection of reptiles, amphibians, invertebrates and tropic fish myself. In my spare time I often take my own living animals along with my fossils and other educational natural history material to schools so I can teach kids about nature and it's history and hidden mechanics. For the rest are my other hobbies mainly based around movies and televisions as I collect a lot of stuff drom my favorite franchises like "Lord or the Rings" & "The Hobbit", "Game of Thrones, "Pirates of the Caribbean", ... And I also attent a lot of comic cons and other events related to those franchises. But then this topic! In this topic I will show my collection of fossils (and also minerals, stones and meteorites) as it is right now and then I will highlight each group of fossils bit by bit. I am currently starting with a own specialized fossil room, so ofcourse the progress and end result will also be posted here! And ofcourse when something get's added to my collection, I'll show it here as well. Sometimes a photo of my "special" pets or taxidermy specimens might pop up, but this topic will mainly be about the fossil room and my fossil collection. For the rest, if you have any comments or questions about the collection or about me or about anything, feel free to ask! I'd love to reply!
  14. Mini Mosasaur collection

    From the album Marine reptiles and mammals

    A little collection of assorted mosasaur fossils from 2 different places that I got when I first started collecting. 2 different types of vertebrae, one is mosasaur, and the other is a questionable claim of mosasaur, a corprolite that was claimed to be that of a mosasaur, a tooth, & 7 rib fragments. 2 ribs have predation marks, as well as the large vertebra. The large vert has a round tooth indent on the very center. The 2nd rib down has tooth scratches along the surfaces, & 3rd rib down has a round tooth indent in the center, which is probably what caused a strip across the middle to break off. There are 2 other tooth marks on that rib as well, forming a diagonal line from above left of the center indent, breaking off a piece along the top, to below right.
  15. Hi all, I have moved images of my collection to this page. Please any questions I will endeavour to answer one by one. Thank you for viewing. Kind Regards. Liam
  16. Hey everyone, I'm back from my second Møns Klint Fossil Excavation - it was absolutely fantastic! For the majority of 2 weeks, I was down at the chalk cliffs of Møn; and recovered quite a sizable quantity of (mostly echinoderm) good-quality fossil material. All of it is still safely stowed away in ice cream boxes and kitchen paper "field jackets", but I can not wait to getting down to preparing all those fossils. Unfortunately, I did not manage to rediscover the "Echinoderm Quarry", but I did on the other hand have the chance to work on some new, very fossiliferous sites. Along with extensive fieldwork, I also got the privilege of analysing the MK Thoracosaurine jaw fossil, and meeting the Director and the Fossil Guide of the GeoCenter Møns Klint. I'll give detailed and illustrated accounts of all that happened* during this successful field session in the next few days... Stay tuned *Except, of course, for my studies of the MK Thoracosaurine - that'll have to wait until after the paper has been published (IF it does end up being published)
  17. Organizing Collection/ ID Help

    Organizing my collection has been the tedious, but also a really fun process. I’ll probably continually posting here for assistance. When I’m feeling a little more confident about my ID’s, I’ll post it in the members collection section to share. I still have some fossils to prep, piece together, display, label, etc. and really fortunate that I have all of you helping constantly; it really speeds up the process. In another year’s time, I’ll be much more educated/ well rounded Some of my fossils are rookie purchases, so I’m just trying to make the best of it. The issue is , I think they’re pretty cool, but not sure if they are worth displaying given that they are bone fragments. I was thinking maybe in a riker...also the issue of labeling...Below are three separate purchases. Group 1: The seller sold these in fragments. Several of these pieces I glued back together neatly with Paleo bond. The seller must’ve used some kind of thick glue originally because there are some marks, but it’s no big deal... anyway these were advertised as Albertosaurus bones... when I asked the seller why he labeled it as such, he said because it’s very probable? I asked him for a coa, and when I received it, it only said Tyannosaur bones... so I’m going to leave it at that...because it’s indeterminable. Even back then I knew Coa’s were pointless, but I always like asking for one, because I feel like it could possibly put a little pressure on the seller to be a somewhat more honest like it did in this case...however in most cases sellers don’t care: Tyrannosaur bone fragments: Judith River Formation, Northern Montana The other small miscellaneous pieces I don’t think can be glued back...no fit or match, just associated bones...What would you label the fossil as, and are they worth displaying?
  18. Cataloguing software?

    My ever expanding fossil collection is without documentation. With all the details of the fossils in my head alone, is there a software or website capable of cataloguing my collection? Ideally i'd like to be able to upload photos of each fossil and fill in custom parameters and notes for each. Does something like this exist? Note: I am running macOS Sierra version 10.12.1
  19. Collection Catalogue Plan

    I thought I'd share how I plan to catalogue my collection in case someone finds it useful. Each entry will be two parts - a photo of the fossil sized about 2.5x3.5" (5x7 print cut in fourths) and a business card with ID/location/etc. information. Here is an example: Every fossil will have a unique reference number which will be on the bottom left corner of the ID card and photo. Reference numbers will also be displayed with the fossils. The format: (3-letter ISO country code)-(4-letter formation/location code):(4-digit number in order of acquisition). Country code list: http://www.nationsonline.org/oneworld/country_code_list.htm. Whenever possible, I will include an image showing what it may have looked like when alive. Skeletal diagrams will be preferred if extinct, photos if extant and credit will be given to the author. The "notes" section will include at minimum a short description of the specimen and a length measurement. Date found will be noted if known. Any restoration done will be described here as well. The photos will probably be lit by an off camera flash and shoot-through umbrella on a light stand instead of the desk lamp used in the example. The camera will be tethered to my PC and photos will be placed in folders named with their reference numbers to avoid any mix-ups. Exposure and white balance will be set manually for consistency and tweaked in batches if needed (in RawTherapee) before being composited for the prints (in GIMP). These will be organized by location in a binder full of 9-pocket trading card pages like these below. One pocket per specimen, photo on the front, ID card on the back. Most of the ID cards are done and ready to print, but I expect the photos to be pretty time consuming. Again, hopefully someone will find this post useful. Constructive criticism is welcome.
  20. Balteurypterus tetragonophtalmus + Ortoceras. Newest addition to my collection.
  21. My small collection

    My wife and I took a trip to the Trammel Fossil Park just outside of Cincinnati, Ohio, a couple of years ago. Prior to this visit, I had no fossils. Now, I have these few. Hope you enjoy. Up first, what I am assuming is a brachiopod, but I could be wrong. Next, another brachiopod.
  22. Wood from Washington

    As I've said before, I am a rockhound of many years. I see recent posts on wood so figured I'd show a few of my personal finds. All are from my home state of Washington.
  23. Bone guy's collection

    I've been a member of this forum for a few months now, and I just wanted to say thank you to all the members who have helped me learn as much as I can learn about fossils. 80% of my fossil knowledge comes from posts I read on TFF, it is a truly amazing resource! I'm exited to show the collection I've amassed so far. To start I have some overview photos of the display. Lighting quality is aweful, but that's just until I get some better lights.
  24. My Collection

    Hi everyone on Fossil Forum, I am pretty new to fossil collection but I have decided to post what I have currently collected and will continue to update this page with new fossils that I acquire over time. I am now looking to acquire rarer teeth now! Details of Specimen: Triceratops Tooth Hell Creek Formation, Carter County, Montana Late Cretaceous Period (65 Million Years Old) Measurements: 1.5 inches long x 3/4 inch wide x5/8 inch thick Weight: 8.9 Grams No restoration at all. all natural specimen. I love the way this looks and its huge!
