  8. Hello, everyone. I'm working on a side project right now and I could use the input of the room for this one. I'm wondering what people consider to be the best fossil collecting sites public and private in the contiguous 48 states. I'm looking for everything. Vertebrates and invertebrates, all periods, just the cream of the crop for everything. I don't need exact locations, so don't worry about sharing super-secret specifics. Thank you in advance everyone!
  9. What are these fossils I have found them in Gainesville Florida in hog town creek I have no idea what they are.
  10. This morning I had an unexpected day off from work and decided to head to Gainesville's creeks. I've done this many, many times before as I've been hunting fossils most of my life- Today I was approached by a member of City of Gainesville Department of Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs. I had only just arrived and started to dig below the waterline as I always do; but she educated me that there is a rule within the municipal city limits of Gainesville, stating that "no designated city park should allow creek access or digging in creeks within park boundaries." This is part of a larger conservation and erosion control effort by local habitat management. I made sure to be very cooperative and polite (as you ALWAYS should be), and I left after a very pleasant conversation with her. She agreed to research the issue and find out if there are ways to get access to the creeks within park boundaries via permit etc. Meanwhile, I called the number listed on my Florida fossil hunting permit and verified that the information I had been given was correct. The only "public access" to any Gainesville creeks is from the roadside at any point where the creeks intersect the road. From there, you can access them without touching private property. You must not go on the banks on either side as that IS private property. You may wade the creek and hunt, but never within a city park or private property without permission. I am literally posting this while I sit in a parking lot reviewing maps for alternate access. In the spirit of responsible hobby-hunting, conservation of Florida's wetlands and education, I wanted to share this information with you all. Happy Hunting!
  11. I walked upon a shale bed covered with these along other things I have not trained my eyes for.
  12. Sorry about posting so many fossils at once. Please help me see if what types of fossils these are and are they real.

  18. What is this fossil dino? Is this real? It is a raptor but I don't know what raptor
  19. Hello, I have a question about fossils and secondary deposition.... I am assuming from what I have read that secondary deposition occurs when creature is preserved in sedimentary rock. Over time softer structures will decompose and be filled in by secondary sedimentary rock such as chert. If this does occur does this alter the specimen and it is considered not a fossil??? Thank you for your help! Kim
  20. Would love to go collecting fossils this July. Trilobites and Ammonites are high on my list. Can anyone suggest places to go in New England or New York? I'm a geologist/micro-paleontologist (foraminifera) but have never collected macro-fossils in the North-east. I currently live in CT. Any guidance much appreciated.
  21. Hi All, I have a friend looking for sites no more than 2 hours from Ogdensburg, NY. Any suggestions? Thanks for any help at all!
  22. Hi, I am just wondering if you could tell me what you think this is? Kind regards Jack
  23. I'm heading across the ditch for a holiday in April and was hoping to spend a couple of days checking out some fossil sites. Anyone got any suggestions? Would love to find some ammonites and trilobites, also any bone fragments.
  24. Okay, today I have four more nodules to check. Again, some may be unfossiliferous. I'm expecting a few more jellies, and maybe a rock or two. One might be iron concretion, because of the crocodile skin pattern. Some , may need to be cleaned of calcite, the one from my last post is still being cleaned. If any more pictures are needed just let me know. Thanks and good luck!
