  1. Triassic Shale - Emmitsburg MD

    1st shot at separating red shale in Emmitsburg. I would be grateful if anyone can tell me what, if anything, maybe seen. I see many things and yet nothing. I apologize for poor quality. It is best I can get under 3.95MB. Thank you.
  2. Who's Permian feet made these?

    If anyone is familiar with Permian tracks, can anyone ID these? All I can tell is that they appear to be synapsid tracks, but not Dimetrodon. I'm assuming that means Edaphosaurus is out too, but that's all I can figure. the ONLY details still known are that they're Permian tracks from somewhere in Arizona. There's no more information available. There's 4 plates... 1-pic 1 2-pics 2,3,4 3-pics 5 4-pics 6,7
  3. Fossil Tracks?

    Not sure if these are fossil tracks or not. There is more than one and they are all similar. Maybe some kind of sea creature digging? They were steps to a creek so I can’t place a certain age to them. The age around here is Late Cretaceous so sometime around that time is most likely. Denton, Texas, USA.

  6. Made an incredible discovery at home tonight when I noticed tiny baby dinosaur tracks about only 5.1mm long on a ripple slab I had found. I've never seen baby footprints so small before, so I'm amazed. No wonder I didn't notice them for nearly two weeks after I had found them this month! Since there seems to be a partial adult on the edge it makes me wonder if this dinosaur was walking with its new born baby.
  7. I have started recently being able to hunt dinosaur footprints and while I don't want to cover the ones that are naturally visible I may want some of the lower quality or hard to see tracks to stand out. Anyone prepare tracks themselves or know of a good clear coating? I've heard of rustoleum but I am unsure if it's paint or spray I should be using.
  8. After attending my first MGS meeting, which was great, I had the chance to go on a quick hunt at a site that I had found on google earth. I thought it would be promising to hunt for Dinosaur footprints there, It should be Cretaceous according to the geologic map. Thankfully, the map was right and I got to hunt an exposure of what appears to be the Arundel Clay formation. Just about the same as dinosaur park in Laurel, MD except it was more of a clay and conglomerate mix than shale and ironstone. I didn’t find any prints that I’m confident about. One psuedoprint I think (looks like one bit is a lie) and my dad found one that might be a worn one nodosaur track. I am confident I found many piece of fossil wood. I’m thinking I may have found the same site that @EMP has been hunting (I’ll likely have a PM convo with you EMP). I’m gonna continue looking for a better print site but a wood site ain’t bad when Cretaceous sites are as hard to find as they are in Maryland. I have been looking through all records I have of Ray Stanford’s site and am narrowing it down to a few sites. Perhaps someday I’ll run into Mr. Stanford himself while hunting Sadly enough I cannot reveal the site to anyone, I am quite afraid of what might happen to it if word got out. I don’t want to take chances. I will say it’s in Maryland. I would consider trading some lignite if someone would like it but I’ll keep that for a trading thread. Here are some pictures: Tree limb in a bank, sort for bad pictures but I was sinking in Cretaceous clay (don’t want to become a fossil myself)
  9. This is a follow-up from another post of mine regarding some dinosaur tracks I purchased a while back. We decided that that the Eubrontes track is 100% real, but some of the other footprints may be questionable or exaggerated. The stain that was used sort of makes it hard to tell. I’m not the biggest fan of this dark polish, so I was thinking I might want to remove it and apply a much lighter, more subtle polish to correctly identify which are really dino tracks vs. not. The seller told me that it’s a shoe polish that can be removed. My issue is, I’m not sure how to go about it doing it. How do I do this without damaging the specimen ? Will water and a rag potentially damage it? or is there another better way of going about it? Of course in the end event that it’s not removable it’s not the end of the world because it still a very nice piece, but like I said, I would prefer a more professional look, as I’m trying to get a little more serious about my collection. Appreciate the help and thanks
  10. Dino foot cast

    A quick iPhoney pic of a foot cast while on The Isle of Wight whilst i had a couple off hours of work.

  13. Possible prints

    Some stuff I found today wondering if they might be possible footprints? I will load pictures one at a time due to file limit.
  14. Nice to see discoveries like this by dedicated avocational paleontologists! Who would think to look on the ceiling of caves for ancient footprints?

  15. I saw this article earlier today. If someone has already posted it I give my apologies for reposting it, but I think it is an interesting article on: “A diverse mammal-dominated, footprint assemblage from wetland deposits in the Lower Cretaceous of Maryland” It is published in Nature. https://www.nature.com/articles/s41598-017-18619-w

    Interesting article on the first scientist to study dinosaur footprints in the Connecticut Valley https://www.atlasobscura.com/articles/edward-hitchcock-dinosaur-fossils-footprints-birds-amherst.amp?__twitter_impression=true
  17. I've always wanted to find my own triassic/jurassic footprints and looking for a suggestion or two. I live by the Riker Hill area where extracting dinosaur footprints is now prohibited and it's a bummer. So, does anyone know of a place nearby where I can try finding my own footprint legally?

  19. Theropod footprints

    Hey y'all just started a job on a ranch and they have a very nice theropod trackway. Has at least 10 tracks maybe more. Some are covered by cast off from a mountain. Im fairly sure they are Jurassic but still need to get better gel maps of the area. Anyway my question is what is the best stuff to make a cast of a couple of them. I know plaster of Paris but as with anything is there some new super bad stuff out there? thanks much
  20. Any ID help or confirmation greatly appreciated. 1 mile north of Robin Hoods Bay.

  22. amateur curious of what these are

    From New Brunswick Canada. I saw these. One appears to be bamboo looking. The other was big rock on ground with what appeared to be footprints of different size. The larger one was no bigger than palm of hand. Besides footprint, something almost look like dog or pig head. Was just curious to know if they were actually fossils. the bamboo pic didn't load. I will have to add new topic. sorry am new
  23. Footprints - any ideas please

    Hi, I found this rock in late cretaceous deposits near Malaga while looking for fossils in the hills. It is quite a lump that I managed to get back in my case, but the footprints are about an inch long. Four fairly clear, and a few not so visible. There is no sign of a tail track, which I imagine would show up as the prints are so clear. Can anybody give me any idea as to what the creature might have been? I have tried to research it but can't make any progress. Thank you.
  24. North Texas Tracks

    I thought I would share these pictures with you from the recent track finds in North Texas. These pictures where shared with me, so I can't identify everything in them but can verify they are authentic.
  25. Triassic Ichnofossils

    Hi All, Well it's about time I post something from Holland and no... it's not sharkteeth Here are some of the possible footprints one can find in the classic Winterswijk locality covering the Anisien Triassic period. Although it's called muschelkalk it really is not.. not in the sense of the muschelkalk we have in Germany.. They are Procolophonichnium haarmuehlensis, a small trackway with tens of footprints from a tiny creature... reptile? Second is a larger Rynchosauriodes Paebodyi. Trackways from this reptile are very rare and due to the creatures size... impossible to bring home I have more at home.. will post if you like em
