  1. Osteoderms- Scirrotherium ?

    Hello gang, Here is an osteoderm. This was in a box from my travels, purchased in Cartagena, Columbia in a little shop on the Plaza de las Esmeraldas in the El Laguito. Sadly, the identity and location are long gone due to a sudden intrusion of the ocean weeks later in Chile. (Long story involving a ship and some outdated charts in Caleta Cinfuncho...) The ink ran on the label and only “Magdalena” and “Huila” are legible...dang ballpoints... Anyway, I am attempting to ID it. Best I can tell this is likely Scirrotherium hondaensis, which means Magdalena River, Honda group, lower Villavieja fm. Huila, Columbia Hoping someone here is more knowledgeable as I’m just guessing from a few web searches!
  2. Egg, Coprolite, or Neat Rock?

    Found slightly north of Columbia, SC in the middle of the state in a creek. Caught my eye because of the inside, but the outside seems to have some sort of non-natural looking inclusions. If you’re able, zoom in on the exterior to see what I mean. Any help is appreciated! Totally understand this could just be a rock but it seems too odd.

  5. Bone ID, Oregon, Willamette

    Hello All, I found this piece at the shoreline, Kelley Point Park (confluence of Willamette and Columbia). It's lightweight (1 oz) Any Ideas?
  6. New Giant Pliosaur, Columbia

    This paper came out in December, did a search but could not find any previous posts. My apologies if it's already been posted. Meet Sachicasaurus vitae, the newest giant pliosaur, an almost 10 m (35 ft) goliath from early Cretaceous, 130 Ma from what is now Colombia. https://www.researchgate.net/figure/Sachicasaurus-vitae-gen-et-sp-nov-holotype-MP111209-1-Photograph-and-schematic_fig2_331043547 Photos by Jim Kirkland
  7. Southern Illinois Unknowns

    I recently made my first trip to a roadcut south of Columbia Illinois. I found a lot of crinoid stems, brachs and bryozoans. I found somethings that I'm not sure what they are. With these, my first instinct was crinoids or maybe cephalopods that had somehow split vertically. IMG_0977.MOV

  9. Copal.jpg

    From the album MY FOSSIL Collection - Dpaul7

    Copal SITE LOCATION: Columbia TIME PERIOD: Recent Era (several hundred to several thousand years old) Data: Copal is a name given to tree resin from the copal tree Protium copal (Burseraceae) that is particularly identified with the aromatic resins used by the cultures of pre-Columbian Mesoamerica as ceremonially burned incense and other purposes. More generally, the term copal describes resinous substances in an intermediate stage of polymerization and hardening between "gummier" resins and amber. The word copal is derived from the Nahuatl language word copalli, meaning "incense". Copal that is partly mineralized is known as copaline. Grimaldi (1996) referred to copal as subfossil resin, several hundred to several thousand years old, that may take a high polish, but will craze deeply on the surface after only a few years when the volatiles from the original resin evaporate.
  10. News story HERE. PDF paper in spanish HERE. Enjoy. Regards,
  11. I'm a newbie fossil hunter and I live in Jessup along rt. 1 I've seen some discussions about questionable sites but none specify the exact area to look. In the woods out back there is a stream called Dorsey Run with TONS of pebbles and such in it and the stream runs along rt 1 and does cross under rt.1 near Assateague rd. I'm not sure much of the geology of the area but I've read there are dinosaur fossils in the Jessup/Laurel area. I've been back there to glance to see if I can find anything but nothing turns up at first glance. When it gets warmer maybe I'll search more extensively in that stream. I've also read there are shark teeth in Laurel's Prince George's County area but still cant find details on the location. Does anyone in the area know of any fruitful sites to check?
