  4. 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

  11. Pecan gap chalk ammonites

    Had a pretty fun day here in San Antonio, started off by meeting Dan, talked for a little while before he moved on to go scout some other areas, moved down a ways and found a mosasaur vertebrae (my first), and then a pachydiscus (also a first for me) had to leave for a while but came back and found more pachydiscus chunks and then a giant pachydiscus that I had almost stepped on probably 10 times or more.

  15. Yesterday I was in New Jersery for my son, Dylan's marching band competition. We had half the day free until they were playing at Rutgers stadium so we met up with @frankh8147 to hunt one of the Cretaceous streams. We met up around 9am and it was raining. Not a torrential downpour, but enough to soak into your clothes even with a raincoat. I wasn't deterred and neither was Frank. Heck it didn't seem to bother him at all. I would like to say Thanks to Frank for being a great host and guide to me and my family. He has such a great wealth of knowledge of the fossils from that area. Plus this was the second time since July that he was willing to meet up with us. It didn't take long to start finding fossils. Right off the bat frank found a cephalic clasper from a shark! It was a decent size and condition. I found mostly shark and fish teeth. Frank seemed to find more of an assortment including reptile. He gifted Devin a Goblin sharktooth, and myself a partial mosasaur. Sot of a highlight for me is what maybe my first point. I say maybe because frank wasn't 100% sure because it is quite worn but said he has seen similar pieces which after being looked into were in fact points. The key is to find out if the object is made of argonite. An old tribe used argonite for their points and does not occur naturally in N.J. Anyways we stayed about 4hrs before we had to part ways but it was a great time with a great guy. Thanks again Frank for everything, including the pieces you gave me before the hunt. Hope you like the New York trilos. ( Don't forget to get me the info of those pieces) Here are pics of the gifts and finds.
  16. https://www.dailystar.co.uk/news/weird-news/736405/dinosaur-snail-99-million-years-prehistoric
  17. Hi, I found this fossil yesterday on the beach(?) of Ivösjön. Should be from either early - or old - Cretaceous since those are the two known periods carrying fossils in this area. It looks brainy, and I have searched but haven't found anything similar for the cretaceous period. It looks a bit like modern scleractinian, but I'm not sure? It has these s-curve patterns, draping-like foldings. I kind of like it. It looks a bit like a rock brain. All the Best/ Linus I've posted more fossils from this area in these threads.
  18. Unidentified tooth and weird dino bone

    Hi! I have some question marks about some of my fossils that I bought early as a child. I have a tooth that was labelled as coelophysis, I know its not a coelophysis, everything about it is wrong for being that, I cant remember where it was found , but if someone has an idea what it possibly/maybe can be its good enough for me. The other fossil is a dinosaur Bone fragment which according to what i can remember is from hell creek formation and was labelled as triceratops. Im mostly curious to know why it looks like it does because it doesnt look like a normal fragment to me, it also has some unusal textures within a convex circle. Sorry for the mediocre photos, My mobile camera has the Specs of a potato. If you need to see more or better photos, just let me know and I will use another camera
  19. Unknown Texas fossils

    Found these in cibolo Creek after our last flood, first one I think might be a piece of ammonite or maybe just a oyster,
  20. New discovery in Gobi desert

  21. North Sulphur River Bone

    I found this bone today at the North Sulphur River Texas. I think it's a type of mosasaur bone based on weight and color but I can't tell what it is.
  22. Cretaceous Cenomanian Leaf Cutter Ant (?) Please Id

    I am at a loss on how to verify if this is a leaf cutter ant. If it is it is far older than anything yet discovered on leaf cutter ants. Notice the square shaped leaf fragment near its face. I don't know what it might be if not the ant's prize. Science says that these insects started to cultivate fungus in the tertiary. Advice?
  23. Evolute ammonites from Madagascar

    Total newbie here. I'm trying to catalog my ammonite collection and have a few pieces that I just can't seem to figure out. Both of these are evolute ammonites. Each has a bit of remaining iridescent nacre near the umbilicus, which is why I think they're likely Cretaceous fossils from Madagascar. The outermost spiral of the larger one has considerable girth (27 mm across the squared off end), while the smaller one is pretty uniform (9mm at the squared off end) and almost wholly agatized. The small one came from a rock shop in Northern California (Chapman's), and the larger one came from online; both claimed to be from Madagascar. I know some of the diagnostic characteristics have been polished off, but I'd really love to know at least what family or genus these are. Thank you very much for your help! Er...I might have more mystery ammonites after this. Is it less annoying to put them all into one post, or spread them out over a few weeks?
  24. I found this in Monmouth County, New Jersey (USA) last week and was wondering if anyone knew what it was. When I first picked it up, I thought it was turtle shell but the bone structure doesn't compare well at all with the other turtle shell examples I've found. The top part is what I was focusing on because it doesn't look that was formed as a result of breaks and wear to me. I guess it could be older breaks and if that's the case, I'm pretty sure that I'm out of luck getting an ID on it but I figured I would give it a shot. As always, all help is greatly appreciated! -Frank
  25. Hello everyone, Last Saturday, October 6th, I joint a fossil hunting excursion of the Dutch geological society (NGV) to the ENCI quarry, near the town of Maastricht (The Netherlands). This quarry has been in production since 1926, and has been one of the best fossil hunting sites of the Netherlands ever since. Worldwide, the youngest time interval of the Cretaceous Period is known as the Maastrichtian, a reference to the rock layers exposed in this area. We owe this international reference to the instrumental work of Belgian geologist André Hubert Dumont, who, in 1849, first described the rock layers in the valley of the Meuse River, close to the present-day ENCI quarry. Consequently, the rock sequence in the ENCI quarry constitutes the original type-locality of the Maastrichtian Stage. The Maastrichtian rocks are also world famous for their excavated mosasaur skeletons (the word 'mosa' is latin for the river Meuse. Mosasaurs are also named after this locality). Yet, unfortunately, all good things come to an end: the ENCI quarry is closing down. The production has stopped this month, and the quarry is now turned into a nature conservation area. Most of the quarry walls are currently being covered up, to make 'nice' gently slopes. Burying all remaining fossils forever.... So the remaining few excursions this year are the very last opportunity to hunt some fossils in this once glorious pit. I have been there a couple of times this year, and every trip fills me with melancholy. While the hunting is still relatively okay(ish), the possibilities become fewer and fewer, and only a very small part of the total strata can be examined....
