  1. Florida Meet Up?

    Hi all, i will I'll be in the Tampa area next Thursday October 26. I was hoping someone would be willing to meet up and go collecting. I am willing to drive a bit for a good hunt. Also, I know that the Gainesville area is famous for its shark teeth. Are there any laws or rules that I need to be aware of? I do have my Florida fossil permit for this year. i look forward to hearing from some of you!

  3. Is this a walnut or ?

    Hello - I'm new to this forum. I appreciate any information that you ladies and gents could provide! Thank you in advance! I've had this object all my life - I found it in Northern California when I was a child. I always thought it looked like a walnut. Perhaps it is, or perhaps it's just an unusual rock. It is rock-like in terms of its weight & feel. The middle "band" goes all the way around - similar to the band that seperates the two halves of a walnut. Thanks!
  4. Coral or Sponge?

    Hello, I received this specimen that I believe is a fossilized coral or perhaps a fossilized sponge and am looking for help in identifying the species and age for a museums collection. Any help would be appreciated!! Thanks, Holly
  5. Piece marine reptile coprolite?

    Hi Is this coprolite piece? Age:Touronian ,Cretaceous Location: Skałki Twardowskiego , Kraków , Southern Poland
  6. Plant Fossil?

    Found in Raubsville Pennsylvania
  7. Help with ID

    Hi, Here is another specimen I have received that I need help identifying the species and age of for a museums collection. Any help would be greatly appreciated! The person who brought it to me had no idea of what it was and could not recall where they had found it. Thanks, Holly
  8. I know I'm not the only one that doesn't live near good fossil deposits, which means that i'm not the only one that has to buy or trade fossils from time to time to build the collection. I thought it would be fun to have an ongoing thread to share our latest great score that we didn't personally find in nature, a thread to share your latest fossil purchase or trade. Let's see what you found at the local fossil show, online or anywhere else other than in the ground.
  9. I feel certain this is a sand dollar.

    I was surprised to find this amongst the prickly pear cactus alongside Cook Slough (a branch off the Leona River) in Uvalde, Tx. Can anyone confirm it as a sand dollar? It has the markings.
  10. Pleistocene

    Hello all! It's been a while since I've been on the forum but I'm back with a question that has been nagging at me. Where does one search for Pleistocene fossils in Nova Scotia? Most of the fossils in my collection are composed of shale and depict leaves and sticks. Not that there's anything wrong with them, it's just that my the Pleistocene epoch has really caught my interest these last few weeks. My internet research hasn't provided any fruit so I thought I would bring my question to this wonderful community of fossil experts and hunters. I know that mastodon and other Pleistocene fossils have been found in Nova Scotia before, one mastodon was found only a few km from where I live. Are Pleistocene fossils not as common as ones with older age? I am hoping that you can give me some suggestions on what to look for and where to look. And possibly some information on how common these fossils are. Thanks Boris
  11. Pick a side

    So I pulled a good nodule out of long storage yesterday and decided to prepp it. This one has me quite stumped tho just when I think I know which side is the to I start to second guess my self and then think the other side is the top. So what do you all think what the top is. Side one Side two
  12. Priscacara?

    Found this for sale, green river fish that has been placed in plaster for some odd reason. It looks to me two have two knightia and a large fish that is headless. It was not identified in the listing, it looks like a cockerellites or priscacara to me but I know nothing about these fish (if it is what I think it is its way underpriced so I'll buy it). Also, is there any restoration apart from the wierd plaster around it?
  13. Mazon Creek ID help

    Hey folks! Just cracked open a nodule from Mazon River, Grundy County and wondering if its a fossil or just geologic? I can't see any detail to determine that its a fossil. It looks like could be a seed cone or coprolite but just guesses? Any thoughts? I found a lot of plant material there. Thanks
  14. NE Florida Beach Find

    Found just south of Ponte Vedra, FL. It has some weight to it...

  18. Devonian fish bone?

    Cleaning devonian rocks I've found this. It could be a fish bone or maybe orthoceras? Is a small fragment. What do you think? Regards.
  19. Fossil or not?

    Found in an old railyard. I don’t know much about fossils, I just pick up cool rocks.
  20. This was one of the most difficult restorations i have ever done for color. The more unusual the color of a tooth, the longer it takes to restore, but also the greater the reward. I porbably spent 2-3 hours painting this one. I hope you enjoy!

  23. Parts of Sting Ray?

    Howdy~ These pieces were found on the Potomac River. Pretty sure they are Ray pieces. Just wanted to make sure. (Sorry, I lost my ruler) 1.) Tooth? 2.) 3.) Plate?
  24. Nice teeth, but what is it?

    Does anybody have any idea what this could be. I'm afraid I know absolutely nothing about it. I got it from an estate. All records and provenance are lost. The head portion of the rock is about five inches (12½ cm) long. There are a few bones below the head.
