  1. Amazing hunt at the Banjaard

    Hi everyone, I'm really late on this one, but better late than never! On the 6th of April I went to the Banjaard beach again, and although our hunt was short it was super interesting! I started off by searching the coastline, where I found lots of bivalves such as Tridonta borealis, Mya truncata, Mytilus edulis, Arctica islandica, etc. After a while I went higher up the beach and started looking for the gastropod shell banks we had a lot of luck at last time. Unfortunately I didn't manage to find them... which tells me that the banks come and go, and that that previous hunt was just really lucky. However we got lucky again this time, by finding another type of shell bank! This giant 'cloud' you see here yielded a crazy amount of smaller rare fossils!
  2. Hi everyone, Not last Wednesday, but the one before that one, I went to the Zandmotor again for a hunt, and it went well! As soon as I went down on the beach (I was still in the Kijkduin area, not yet on the Zandmotor), so only some 5 minutes or so into the hunt, I found this little ugly thing in the sand: It's a small (slightly incomplete) mammoth (Mammuthus primigenius) lamella! It's from the late Pleistocene, some 40'000 years ago. It's nowhere as nice as the previous one I found, but this one's cool too. Still happy to have found it because lately I've really been on a dry spell when it comes to the mammal stuff, so hopefully this is a sign that I'm gonna find some more again. After that, I continued hunting for some 4 hours or so, until the rain chased me away. The weather, although sunny at first, was really not great because there was a lot of wind. This made it a bit colder, but more annoyingly there was sand going everywhere. At some point I was checking out a little sand cliff for some shells, but had to turn my back immediately because the sand was going in my eyes. Also, the 'wich' part of my sandwich became essentially irrelevant... I did make some cool fossil shells finds though:
  3. Pyritized Clam shells

    Question for the group: is it common for a clam shell to pyritize in contact with a clay? This was from Edisto Beach SC. They were buried in mud to where they are not pyrite. I am assuming the clay is heavy in iron sulfide. Douglas.
  4. Dug these out yesterday

    First time i was ever able to dig out the whole shells. Top and bottom on both. Very exciting. Sorry for the "non-technical" terms. I can't seem so upload any more pictures. Just this one. Im new and clueless. Thanks
  5. On a business trip to Tampa this week, I came across a shell pile containing typical Upper Pliocene fossil mollusks which probably originated from SMR. Since SMR is no longer in production it might be a good opportunity for someone to start a nice little collection if you never had the opportunity to collect in the Sarasota quarries. Since it is slated for road fill it won't be there long so if you are interested PM me and I will give you locality details. Mike
  6. Can Somebody Please I.D. This Bivalve?

    Hello. I got this fossil at a store and I forgot the name of the bivalve. Thank you!
  7. Shells being recovered in other states in the Coffee Sand, Tennessee is the exception. Leaching of the sediments at a later time is thought to have been the general factor. Strangely as it seems, here iron has wholly replaced some unknown shells. My phone camera not being that good, it's difficult to determine in the pics, but very detailed surfaces of the outside of the shells can be saw w/ the naked eye. Also present on the specimen of sandstone appear to be perhaps some type of trackway(?). These shells truely are the first shells discovered in the Coffee Sand of Tennessee that I am aware of. The specimen weighs about 80 pd., so it was a hard recovery, but it's significance excellent. I hope some can I.D. these Campanian Cretaceous shells.
  8. Everyday Shells? (Cooktown Shells)

    I found this along finch bay in cooktown, Queensland, after cyclone. Are these common shells?
  9. Starting a thread on them good'ol Exogryas, as time goes i'll steadily be adding to it for all the Exogrya lovers out there. I have lots of this material, just haven't been able to get to most of it yet for preping. I got the big ones, the little ones, the tiny ones, ones that are so riddled with holes they look like swiss cheese, the ugly, the stunning, and the average...lets start with the finest Exogrya i've ever seen, it was previously posted in a thread entitled "A Museum Grade Exogrya." I've never yet saw one on display that looked better than this.....most aren't even on its level.
  10. Here's a portion of Baculites from a Coon Creek formation outcrop east of Selmer, Tn. Beside hwy. 64. Late Cretaceous. Maastrichian, around 72mya.
