  1. Florida fossil advice

    Hello all! Soooo I’m taking my family to Disney World for Christmas this year. My wife is being very cool about it and she’s letting me spend most of my time looking for fossils. I’d like to make the most of my trip being that Florida is quite far Texas. I know about Peace River, Shell Creek and Venice Beach. I’ve been reading that Peace River isn’t productive anymore....is this true? I’d really like any advice on where to go, what to do, what not to do etc. If you have any secret spots and would like to pm me that would be much appreciated. I promise to keep it to myself. Oh, I do understand that I need a permit to collect in Florida btw. Any advice helps. Thank you!
  2. I just used Acetone to remove a penmark from my Mosasaur jaw. Before After It seems to have worked very well and makes it looks better. Would the same process work for checking for any paint that might have been but on a Keichousaurus without damaging anything?
  3. Hi! I would like to trade these Nerinea snails,they were found in Valjevo,Western Serbia. They are from the Jurassic period.If anyone is interested send PM! In return i would like to trade these for teeth mostly,but if not other fossils are possible too Kind regards, Darko
  4. I dont have a lot of room in my fossil/computer room,, so when I start to sell off some things,,,,,,,,,, they get in the way. Does anyone else have this problem? Its not a bad problem so maybe I should just quit complaining. or get a bigger room? RB
  5. Hunting with kids

    I've got a couple days off of work in mid June and asked my 4 and 8 year old if they want to do a mini fossil trip and they both of course said yes. I have the book Midwest gems, minerals, and fossils, but based on all the searches I've done on here, I'm guessing most of that is quite outdated. We live in Wisconsin and have done the mazon creek hunting as well as some roadcuts in Illinois, iowa, and minnesota. I was thinking indiana might be something new and fun and not too far away since I only have about 2 days. The st Leon roadcut is what got me interested, but I'm not sure what else is out there that's kid friendly and isn't going to get us in trouble. Crawfordsville would be cool, but sounds impossible for access? Are there says to get into some of these creeks in Indiana legally from the roads? I've read about giant geodes in some as well. We have waders but the little guy is only a little over 3 feet tall. I'm wondering if anyone can point me in the right direction or if I should consider somewhere else? Thanks in advance for any info.
  6. Here is The Association of Applied Paleontological Sciences online guide for fossil dealers and other paleo related info for the 2019 Tucson (Arizona) fossil, gem and mineral shows. The guide lists dealers by speciality and venue. The guide has some blank pages (advertisements missing?). https://aaps.net/pdf/2019-AAPS-Guide-final-lo-res.pdf
  7. More Fossils

    Here's some more teeth guys I need help identifying. Thanks!
  8. Kentucky Teeth Fossils

    Can anyone help me identify all these fossilized teeth and other fossils I have?
  9. my display

    Got some minerals in there such as mesolite, malachite, pyrite and quartz, calcite, kyanite and quartz, stibnite, and a bunch more. I'm not able to identify all of these. All I know is they are from the Devonian time period and some ordovician.
  10. Portland Fossils ID

    G'day everyone! I have going through some of my Portland finds and had a few pieces I needed some help with. The first piece is what I suspect is a drumfish tooth, which I am fairly confident with but wanted a second opinion and the second piece is what I believe to be some sort of fish or shark dermal plate? I am not quite sure and this is the piece I need the most help with. The site is aged late Miocene? to early Pliocene and is a marine environment where many shark, cetacean, fish and invertebrate fossils can be found. Thanks, Dan 1. Drumfish tooth? 2. Unknown (Possible dermal plate?)
  11. Apex Possibilities

    I'm a yankee headed down to Apex for a few days. I know it's pretty urban, but is there anything close or en route where I might poke around?
  12. Hi! I hunt the creeks in and around NJ for fossils pretty frequently, but found one today that I've not previously seen and can't find any matching pics online for either. I found it in Ramanessin Creek in Holmdel, NJ. I was thinking maybe a fish jaw/mouth bone, but not sure. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Kushmeja
  13. Hi I was just wondering I have this Echinoidea that I would like to sell but I do not really know how much it is worth I know that TFF does not discuss this kind of stuff so I don’t ask but how is it possible to get an evaluation
  14. Hi everyone, I've been picking up these beautiful little pieces of coral on Myrtle Beach. I assumed they were fossils, but after reading a lot on the Internet, I'm confused. Some sites call them "agatized," others call them stony coral and say they aren't fossils, lots of sites just refer to them as coral fossils. What throws me is that their white and cream colors are unlike the black of the other fossils I find, and the small pieces of bryozoan I find on the beach are all dull gray. And some seem to be attached to a piece of modern shell. I really appreciate your help. - Paula
  15. Hypostome Identified

    Hello! I just came across almost a complete hypostome and a larger wing of the mouth line on a smaller hash plate. Didn't know it until I broke down the matrix. The more I chip away at the plate the more minor trilobite pieces I am finding...which is not unusual. Is there any suggestions on how to categorize and store these??? Sorry for the snarge picture.... Still need lighting in my new manpad.
  16. In the past I have posted some plastic “Plano” brand cases that I periodically find and buy from Goodwill. These are great cases, they are made very well and are compartmentalized and perfect for storage of smaller fossils. The below pic shows some of the Plano cases that I have, they are the thinner ones. But I digressed- so today I stopped in a Goodwill and picked up two of the below cases that must have been used by a salesman for samples. These cases are very nice and well made and they will be perfect when out collecting at road cuts for smaller items such as brachiopods, etc. These cases are also compartmentalized and will allow me to sort fossils as I collect them rather than placing them in plastic bags where the fossils could get damaged by the end of the day. And at a cost of $3.99 each, I could not go wrong.
  17. Bones and foot

    Dose anyone recognize any of this.
  18. Here are some rare teeth and bones from Cave Bear found in Southeastern Serbia,and also some Cave Hyena teeth and one possible canine root from a Brown Bear(not sure).
  19. Not much to spare

    I finally picked up the display cabinets from my sister's place. The last of my parents legacy for me. I barely had enough room to pack these into my tiny place. My bedroom is piled high so as to make my living room more displayable. Now I have the tedious job of filling them. The larger will be strictly for the ammos. Corner one is for other niceties. My ammo cabinet, waiting on my having some time to fill. Corner unit...a work in progress. I will repost when cabinets are filled.
  20. What are these?

    I was just wondering what the species for the trilobites are but I’m not sure what the 3rd thing is as it looks like an ammonoid or nautiloids from most angles but it doesn’t have an aphycyus it has an operculum so is it a devils tonail thanks
  21. A daylong venture into the back canyons of the Sacramento Mountains to look for minerals and fossils. From the trailhead & back was just under 9 miles and lots of rock scrambling through Ordovician-Pennsylvanian formations. A dryfall requiring a climb around Overhang with rippled sandstone floor having iron concretions A view back down hill partway to summit Horn corals Maybe coral?
  22. Which field?

    I just wanted to know what feilds I can work in in the future. I love picking up rocks and fossils, Is there some kind of mix between paleontology and geology? Could I make a living on this kind of job? I am hoping to study in austrailia some day.
  23. I didn’t have much time to look around this museum as I had a flight to catch at 1 but I Tried my best to look around and photograph the geological exhibits taking in mind that the museum also has a great collection of animals and aboriginal artefacts that I couldn’t take photos of ,, enjoy (:
  24. The Milwaukee Formation

    We are very pleased to announce the latest title that is currently in the early stages of preparation, so probably will not be ready for release until late 2018 or early 2019. The title is: Fossils of the Milwaukee Formation: A Middle Devonian Paleoecosystem from Wisconsin, USA by Kenneth (Chris) Gass. This will be a pictorial guide to the animals and plants that lived during the Devonian Period in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, over 380 million years ago, as told by the fossils they left behind. This heavily illustrated book (600 colour photos and line drawings) is supported by the author’s more than fifty years of fieldwork and research on the Milwaukee Formation. Being the first book written on the subject since 1911, it presents in one place a revealing update of its fossilized fauna and flora, and a comprehensive review of the discovery of the formation. It also points to significant insights that have resulted from studying its fossils, ranging from simply revealing new species to providing evidence used in various studies such as the one that attempted to counter the theory of Punctuated Equilibria. Provisional contents Preface Introduction Cementing Its Place in History The Lost 100 Years?

  25. Fossils of Gotham

    Rockaway Beach, actually within New York City, finally yielded its first vertebrate fossils to me today: a small, beat up, weathered chunk of whale bone, and this wonderful, large bony fish vertebra. It only took 11 years of collecting... Happy New Year all and may 2019 be full of treasures from the deep past!
