  1. Florida Fossils

    I found some fossils this weekend that I found on a creek along the Peace River. There were three bones that I needed help identifying. The first appears to be a toe bone. I was kinda thinking horse, but it may be too small. The second is a jaw bone. I believe it may be a racoon, but not sure. The third item looks like a claw. My guess is a giant tortoise spur, as I'm not sure what else looks like it. Any help would be appreciated.
  2. Hello everyone, I found a punch of these fossils at a particular location of a layer that is believed to be from the Toarcian age. Some of them were laying freely on the ground, I just picked them up, while others of the same type where cemented into the rocks. Could you help me identify these fossils? Thanks!
  3. Virginia

    Hello all. Looking for some help/advice. Heading to Williamsburg, VA this weekend and am looking to do a quick morning of fossil hunting for shark teeth, maybe 3-4 hour time window. Does anyone know any general spots that are accessible to public. Was gonna do York river state park but they only allow you to keep one fossil. Chippokes is close but it looks like it takes a while to get across it around the James. Was hoping to find somewhere right near Williamsburg or on way back towards SW Va. Any help is much appreciated.
  4. Hey guys do any of you know where I can find Some placoderms here in Black Hawk County Iowa? I have only found a plate piece here and some of my friends found some WHOLE PLACODERMS. while I only have one tiny plate. If you can help me please and thank you!
  5. Have I Found a New Species?

    Hello, I'm 12 years old and my name is Kenan S. I think I have found a new species inside a Tabulate Coral! There seems to be tiny bivalves inside of the coral after I split the coral in half. Wherever the growths are there is a cavity in the coral missing from the region. Also something new to my notes on this coral is that it grows hexagons (like any Tabulate coral) but over each other, but when the 'parasite' eats at the coral it does not grow over the spot or just makes a couple new polyps like any other coral (I own a couple living corals in my 75 gal) it kills the surrounding couple polyps, and creates a new area of polyps. I put this find under this category because of how small the parasitic creatures are. I can barely see them with my own eyes and my microscope is currently broken so that's that.
  6. Fun day with the wifey and some nice finds
  7. Aust Cliff fossils

    A couple of fossils found at Aust Cliff which could someone please ID? I have put suggestions of what they might be.
  8. Hi All, For those in Western Australia, just wanted to let you know that the Mineralogical Society of WA will be hosting their Swap and Sell meeting tomorrow 17th March, 2019. There will be a selection of Minerals, Fossils and Rocks for sale. Sorry if this is not the correct place to put up about such things, hope to see some of the WA members there tomorrow.

  9. Fossils from Big Brook

    This is my first time here and I was hoping for some help identifying these fossils. My daughter and I found these in Big Brook, NJ in February 2019.
  10. Hey friends, hope you're all having a great week. Here is a recent purchase of mine, a piece of Baltic Amber with a nicely preserved spider (Araneae sp.), leaf and Midge. Really loved how this looked and couldn't resist. Eocene period 35–50 million years. Dimensions are 20×13×6 mm. Thanks for looking
  11. I wanted to share some pictures from a recent trip to SW Florida. I grew up in FL but I didn’t do any fossil hunting until I moved to CA and found Shark Tooth Hill. I was really excited to get out and find some Florida fossils. Unfortunately, the Peace River was too high to hunt so we have to explore some smaller rivers that weren’t too flooded. That worked out for me because we found some great fossils! Some members of the forum were nice enough to show me around. I sent out a box of STH finds to my FL friends to get some fossil goodwill going. I think some of them were posted for ID in another thread. I really enjoyed what to me was easy digging in the Florida creeks, it was kind of hot out for February but the weather was great for being in the water. I was really surprised about the diversity of fossils found, at one point on the bank we found an area that had both land and marine fossils in the same layer. You could walk around and just pick cool stuff up. That is where I found the Giant Armadillo jaw section that won the fossil of the month. It was a nice contrast to STH where you tend to find the same type of fossils over and over. I hope you enjoy the pictures.

  13. Pappocetus

    Can anyone please help me find any pictures of pappocetus skulls? There's only one diagram of a lower jaw that I can find, and one site says that it's known from the that type specimen/mandible, and they generally specify if something is known from many specimens. was pappocetus ONLY known from the type specimen? Now the same person, has found a second mandible, I believe, but that's all the mention of any pappocetus fossils found, that I can find mention of anywhere.
  14. I have found plant fossils in three different spots but only the last spot I check had the most satisfying fossils. I will share only a few that I found but I did find tons more.
