  1. 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
  2. When I got home from work today, I had three surprises waiting for me. Two packages from trades with Maxfossils and Britishcannuk, as well as my Florida fossil permit.Yayyyyy! Here are pics of what I got. The first four teethare from Max. They are from Belgium. From Russ I received Bull and lemon shark Teeth from The Bone Valley formation in Florida. Thank-you very much Max and Russ. These teeth make nice additions to my collection!
  3. I'm new to the site and was excited to find a resource such as this online. I am a collector of Native American artifacts as well as fossils, have been my whole life off and on when time allows. I just relocated (only by 20 miles) and was wondering if there are any other fossil hounds from my neck of the woods (Perry, Ste. Genevieve county, MO). I'm looking for some public areas to do a little looking if anyone has any tips. Thanks!
  4. hi all, i just bought this ammonite for preparation, this will be my first preparation ever, any good advice? didnt really know how to start.
  5. my collection....
  6. Hey all, i am planning a trip to Calvert Cliffs in Maryland with my girlfriend, but I was curious if there were any guides that frequently assist people who have never been to the cliffs before. It looks a little intimidating, but perhaps that's because I've never been there. Would you even suggest a guide if one was available? Or is it not crazy to go without one? I just want to be safe there. Could you offer your best advice if I were to go by myself to let's say Brownie's beach? Obviously I'd love to come across a Meg, as I've never found a tooth bigger than 3/4 of an inch before. It would be a thrill id never forget. I most certainly don't want anyone to give up any secret spots, but I'd love to know your best advice on a newbie like myself looking for some better looking fossils. Lastly, do I need to be wading in water to search for megs? I really wanted to strictly search on land (obviously not directly in the cliffs as I know that's illegal, and I wouldn't even if it was legal due to ruining something so naturally pretty). Thanks so much everybody.
  7. Hi, yesterday i went to offerton in the river goyt for my first ever fossils hunting trip, had a nice time in the nature and some nice finds =)
  8. I'm new at hunting big brook and found a few thing I would appreciate any help in identifying oddly I only found tiny shark teeth thanks the 3rd pic I think is coal but it changes blue green in light
  9. This show has NOT been canceled. This show is still planned. Be there!
  10. Hey everyone. I'm really loving this forum a lot. If I read one post from anywhere on this forum, it makes me want to go out and search for fossils immediately. I definitely caught the fever and I'm loving every second of it! I was at Big Brook in New Jersey yesterday, and I've had some trouble identifying some of my finds. I just want to get better at learning, and I know you all will be the best teachers. I've already posted a question to IDing other finds, but I forgot to add this shark tooth to that mix. I know the one skinny, long tooth is from a Goblin Shark, but I don't know what other other is. I'm sure many of you already know, but just in case, Big Brook fossils date back to the Cretaceous Period. Thanks so so much everyone.

  13. Greetings from Florida! I am hoping one of my fellow Fossil Forum brethren might help me out. I am planning a family vacation to the Charleston area the first week of April and came across Low Country Fossil Excursions online. I definitely wanted to do some fossil digging while we are up there, but some of their reviews concerned me. I just spoke to Shawn Damon (guide/owner) on the phone but I am still a little worried about this guided hunt. I am an AVID hobbyist fossil hunter here in Florida, with about 20 years (on and off) of experience, and frequently participate in digs with the University of Florida. Not to be rude, but it is imperative to me, that for the kind of money they are asking, we are going to an area not accessible to the general public or at the least, not heavily trafficked and picked over. I appreciate the value of a good guide, but I am just unsure. Do any of you have experience with this company? Are they worth the $360.00 they are asking for to take my wife, myself and my skilled 8 yr old side-kick (daughter) on a 6 hour "walk-in" hunt? It seems like a lot, especially after what I read on Trip Advisor. Would I be better off to learn the SC fossil hunting rules and strike out on my own? THANK YOU IN ADVANCE for your candid and honest answers!!!!!

  15. I bought a former dealer's remaining collection today. It is a nice mix.
  16. 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.
  17. Hello everyone, So I recently became serious about my collecting, but have had a few fossils for years now. I keep them in my room in an open bag (for now). My room is small and I usually have the door closed. I just learned some fossils could have uranium which could produce radon gas as it decays. Being someone who is paranoid about everything connected to the big 'C' word, I was wondering if my small collection poses any health risk. I have two fossilized shark teeth, two amber specimens, an alleged dinosaur bone fragment, a trilobite, an ammonite, a cephalopod, a mammoth tusk shard, a dino eggshell piece, and some non-fossil artifacts. It's a very small collection in a very small bag. But...being quite paranoid due to my father passing from cancer (he smoked A LOT) I became kind of scared and it actually made me want to stop collecting fossils altogether and just focus on artifacts. Anyone know anything about the safety of collecting?
  18. I bought this megalodon tooth online to practice repairing. Here are some pictures of my progress. Please any constructive criticism or anything would be extremely helpful. Thank you
  19. Hi, I'm sort of new to the forum but have been digging round the streams on NJ for a while. Over the winter I picked up dremel that's solely dedicated to prepping fossils. Anyway, I'm looking for a site or person where is can buy bulk material/concretion/nodules to work on.
  20. any help on these please
  21. Hello! If all goes fine, I'm going to South Africa in june or july. I will stay near Ellisras (Limpopo). I would like to go fossil hunting some day. But I dont know if I am in the proper zone, since I've seen in google that most of the fossils are in the south. Is it possible to find some fossils in the north? And if it is, what kind and what period of time? It would be nice to go back home with some small ammonite or other fossil. It would be a nice remembee of South Africa!

  23. Hi, i'm a newbie , i started my collection some month ago. anyway i need help for the indentification of this thing that i found on a cliff in sardinia (italy)
  24. Hello everyone! Since I can't actually go out fossil hunting these days, I thought I might post pictures of some fossils that I've had for a while to see if anyone out there in TFF can help me with identification. First up are two fossils I collected when I traveled to Queensland, Australia for a field course back in May 2000. I recall that we spent an afternoon looking for fossils in a creek/river in the Chillagoe area, and I found a total of three specimens: 1. an echinoid (maybe a sand dollar?) that I gifted to my professor because he was interested in it (I now wish that I had kept it, but oh well!), 2. an orthoconic nautiloid (photos found below in this post), and 3. something wierd (photos included in the post that follows). I'd appreciate any assistance that you can give - thanks! Monica PS - I have no idea as to the age of the rocks out there, but maybe someone out there knows Orthoconic nautiloid:
  25. Hi! Im looking fossils from Paratethys area. some nice,big tipical specimens.
