  1. My family and I are on short end of season camping trip in Southeastern Pennsylvania and decided to head over to Gettysburg. These have probably been covered here before but I got some pictures of the famous Dinosaur Footprints on the Bridge! My son loved it (I’m gonna pretend more than me ). Anyone know of anywhere I can go searching for some fossils while I’m in the area that’s around the Gettysburg area??
  2. Piecing it back together

    Have some nice trackways from the new spot.
  3. Hit the jackpot

    Found this large expanse of rock today. The few chunks I pulled out all have tracks. Need to start exploring to see where the edges are.
  4. Possible tracks in rock arizona?

    Good day all. I'm new here so let me introduce myself. I'm Robert, an amateur gold prospector, fisherman and lots more. I have found nothing too interesting during my gold panning adventures well not for an untrained gold fevered eye anyways but have found tons of modern aged bones that looks old at least a few hundred years old. Anyways now since thats out of the ways I was driving through Arizona when I reached the top of the hill at the sitegreaves national forest sign off of 260. I pulled over to let my semi truck cool down and chose to hike a bit. I sat down on a rock and found a small track. Its not as big as my hand nor is it extremely noticeable, maybe the size of one of those bbq/Chick-fil-A sauce dipping things tad bigger i guess. Anyways I took a picture what do you think? Just an coincidence?
  5. Love my new neighbor!

    My new neighbor (mile away but still the closest) rented an end loader and volunteered to move two of my biggest rocks! Both safe in my collection. And even better, went up the side of the wash about eight feet and found tracks. Could be the edge of the undisturbed fossil layer.
  6. Took some pictures of the chirotherium tracks. Have quite a few with a front and rear together.
  7. This one is too big to move

    8’ long, 32” wide. Excellent sets of tracks. Need a backhoe to move this one. Late in the day so pics are a bit shaded, sorry.
  8. Love this set of prints

    Found this yesterday. It was a bit out of the water flow so it hasn’t been eroded much. Nice distinct prints.
  9. More nice prints. One unknown

    Nicely defined toes with claws. I guess you could call them sandy claws. Catch me at your local comedy club! Second picture is taken under a rock I’ve tunneled underneath but I have no idea what the print is from. It’s about 2”.
  10. The summer haul

    One summer, tons of sand and rock and twelve pairs of gloves later. Should have just moved the house to the fossils.
  11. Nice full stride of Chirotherium

    Found a nice set of front and rear, left and right chirotherium prints. Couple pictures of what the site looks like - I move one and hit two more. Currently have over 100 rocks with footprints.
  12. Morning footprint finds

    The first picture is a Rotodactylus that has all five toes. The little one at the bottom center is sort of oval shaped and sticks out an angle. Second picture I have no idea. The print on the far right center looks like it has stubby little toes.
  13. Union Chapel Mine

    New to the site and have found a lot of odds and ends over the years, more by accident then out on hunts. But now wanting to get some of my grand kids into fossil hunting. So here is my question. Can you hunt for fossils at the Union Chapel Mine? If not is there any old mines you can hunt in Alabama? Thanks
  14. Very nicely defined footprints

    Found this rock with some nicely defined footprints. The first two pictures are of the same print - has a great impression of the ball of the foot.
  15. Found a variety of toes today

    This rock has a nice variety of prints with varying number of toes. The bottom center has two toes, the left has three. The upper right is a very distinct print but I can’t tell if there is is a fourth toe to the right of the three long ones.
  16. Chirotherium prints with scale

    Here are some of the various sizes of the chirotherium footprints.
  17. Some footprints with scale

    Here are some closeups with scale (inches). It looks to me like there are some two toe and some three toe prints u
  18. Some more new footprints

    The first picture looks like a different print than what I’ve found before - the toes are much wider spread than the chirotherium and there seems to be only three toes, not four. The second picture shows an interesting pattern in the rock. The third has front and rear prints.
  19. New type of footprint

    The rock I recovered today has a new type of footprint I haven’t seen before (first picture) as well as a couple of nice chirotherium.
  20. 7.5 foot slab of footprints

    Pulled this 7.5 foot slab out today. A lot of the prints are faint but some nice clear ones.
  21. Footprints?

    Hello every one, Found this on the beach while gossil hunting. Can any one please tell me if they are prints? Thanks, Mike
  22. Still finding footprints

    Over 30 big slabs recovered now. Found a nice one with three Chirotherium strides - front and rear feet.
  23. Hi, I was wondering if the tracks are authentic?@jpc @Troodon
  24. Hello Fossil Friends, You might have already known or been aware, but I came across this in the news today and thought I’d share it with you. I note that these fossils are not a recent discovery—most just had not been scientifically described, hence the recent publication. ******************** Gigantic Australian carnivorous dinosaurs discovered and studied using footprints North America had the T. rex, South America had the Giganotosaurus and Africa the Spinosaurus—now evidence shows Australia had gigantic predatory dinosaurs. The discovery came in University of Queensland research, led by paleontologist Dr. Anthony Romilio, which analyzed southern Queensland dinosaur footprint fossils dated to the latter part of the Jurassic Period, between 165 and 151 million-years-ago. "I've always wondered, where were Australia's big carnivorous dinosaurs?" Dr. Romilio said. "But I think we've found them, right here in Queensland. The specimens of these gigantic dinosaurs were not fossilized bones, which are the sorts of things that are typically housed at museums. Rather, we looked at footprints, which—in Australia—are much more abundant." He explains, "These tracks were made by dinosaurs walking through the swamp-forests that once occupied much of the landscape of what is now southern Queensland." Most of the tracks used in the study belong to theropods, the same group of dinosaurs that includes Australovenator, Velociraptor, and their modern-day descendants, birds. Dr. Romilio said these were clearly not bird tracks. "Most of these footprints are around 50 to 60 centimeters in length, with some of the really huge tracks measuring nearly 80 centimeters," he said. "We estimate these tracks were made by large-bodied carnivorous dinosaurs, some of which were up to three meters high at the hips and probably around 10 meters long. To put that into perspective, T. rex got to about 3.25 meters at the hips and attained lengths of 12 to 13 meters long, but it didn't appear until 90 million years after our Queensland giants." He says, "The Queensland tracks were probably made by giant carnosaurs—the group that includes the Allosaurus. At the time, these were probably some of the largest predatory dinosaurs on the planet." Despite the study providing important new insights into Australia's natural heritage, the fossils are not a recent discovery. "The tracks have been known for more than half a century," Dr. Romilio said. "They were discovered in the ceilings of underground coal mines from Rosewood near Ipswich, and Oakey just north of Toowoomba, back in the 1950s and 1960s." Most, he said, hadn't been scientifically described, and were left for decades in museum drawers waiting to be re-discovered. "Finding these fossils has been our way of tracking down the creatures from Australia's Jurassic Park."

  25. Footprint maybe?

    Found this not far from the other footprints. This is sandstone. I can’t really tell for sure.
