  1. Green River Fish Amia Head???

    Hello everyone, I'm looking for a second opinion on this piece, a fish head from the green river fauna, while I believe it maybe Amia due to comparisons I'm not to confident, any help/guidance is and will be appreciated.
  2. The family and just returned from awesome road trip that included a couple days of fossil hunting the Green River Formation at one of the commercial quarries open to the (paying) public near Kemmerer Wyoming. It was our first time and all three of us, especially my four year old daughter, had a great time splitting rock for fish fossils.The first day we spent splitting what the guys at the quarry called "upper layers". The stuff was on the soft side, split easy and had lots of small fish, mostly knights and diplomystus. The second they had us working stuff they referred to as "lower layers". This stuff was relatively harder but had some waves in it that made it much more difficult to split. It seemed worth the extra effort, because although we found less fish overall the second day, they were some bigger fish. I found a mioplosus and 3 phareodus of varying sizes, preservation and completeness, along with a few more little guys.Everything I found was far from perfect, and even my best finds need some work, but we came home with some cool stuff and some awesome family memories I will forever cherish. It was a great trip that was the first of what I suspect will be many out that way. As a side note, while in the area we swung by Lehi, UT to visit the Musuem of Ancient Life. This place was incredible and an absolute highlight of our trip. If you like fossils, and I can only assume you do if you're reading this, this museum will not disappoint. This is the quarry we huntedSome of the knightia and diplosA mostly complete mioplosus that needs a little prep.This phareodus is in pretty bad shape and missing more than half its body, but is big enough to make you get out of the water.Another phareodus, not as big but much better condition.This was my favorite find of the trip. Smaller than the other two phareodus but more complete. After a little repair and prep work this should be a neat fish.
  3. Good evening, I'd like to ask if anyone knows if it's possible to find fish fossils in jurassic mudrock. As far as I can tell, it must be exceedingly rare in Slovakia.
  4. Turitella? Age?

  5. Tilly Bone Fossils?

    As I have investigated many unidentified and differently formed fossils, Tilly bones, almost always comes up. Is "Tilly Bone" a catch-all term?

  7. Hello, I am new to this forum and fish fossils in general. I was recently left with a couple of fossils that I would like to know more about. If anyone has any information on these if would be highly appreciated! Thank You!
  8. I don't seem to find a clear answer. Some places it says it's illegal, other places it says it's legal. It seems the law have change over time? In 2015 - is there any law agains buying chinese fossils from China?
  9. A Few Recent Finds

    Hello all. Haven't had much time to hunt, as life has been getting in the way. I have only been out 5 or 6 times so far this year, and only 3 times to my regular fishing hole. (Early Jurassic, Shuttle Meadow Formation, Connecticut.) My hole in the ground had caved in/slumped down over the winter, and with the spring rains, I have not had a lot of opportunity to get out to this spot. Each time I found a few things, while spending the majority of my time removing dirt from the cave-ins. The most notable find from the previous two trips was from the beginning of June. A Semionotus sp., missing the tail and the lower third of it's skull and body. Well, I had a chance to get out for a few hours this past Sunday, to hunt my Shuttle Meadow formation stomping grounds, with Pagurus. I arrived slightly earlier than Mike did, as he had a long drive, and I am much closer. I arrived around 7:20 am, and commenced to digging some of the rubble from the winter/spring cave-ins.It was a pleasant day, but the digging induced much sweating, as the temperature climbed with the humidity. Within about 15-20 minutes of digging, I uncovered a likely looking piece of shale, that must have been in the slumped material. I split it on the side, but it broke down the middle as I struck the shale with my trusty Estwing rock hammer. I commenced to splitting the 1st half - nothing notable. Then, I split the second half, and was rewarded by the sight of a lovely fish,... another Semionotus sp. this time, nearly complete, and only missing it's tail. Continued...
