  1. I’ve been told that bees wax helps preserve and give ammonites a dull shine, anybody use this and whats the best way to apply?
  2. fossil laws in Germany

    Does anybody know about fossil laws in Germany?
  3. Hi guys, I have this shell fragment with beautifull paterns but it is somewhat encrusted in Matrix. Looking at the matrix in detail I noticed some symmetry. Vertebra shape. I need some input on how to clean this. My concer is that if the calcium content hasn’t been fully substituted with silica I might damage the specimen using diluted vinegar. Any thoughts? See pics below.
  4. The Middle Devonian fossils of New York State are well known and have been for over 100 years. I grew up in Livingston County in whats called the Genesee River Valley. The streams that feed this river within the county are rich in Devonian fossils. I collect fossil corals, brachiopods, bryozoans, crinoids&blastoids, pelecypods, gastropods, cephalopods, phyllocarids, trilobites, fish, and wood. I rearranged my favorites in my collection and thought I would share since I feel the display will remain like this for some time. Out of the thousands of Middle Devonian fossils I have collected in 30+ years, these are the ones that mean the most to me. Thanks, Mikeymig
  5. Fun in Southern Ohio!

    Howdy All! Been a couple of months since I have posted anything. Work has kept me more than busy with travel. BUT, I wanted to share a quick day trip to my dig site yesterday in northern Cincinnati. I explored far left into the hillside I am excavating to see on the surface what Gastropods, Brachiopods and Bryzoa I could see and I was happily surprised that I found the mother-load! This area of my site was covered by a lot of growth and the runoff of water was less than in other areas I have been digging. I have attached a couple of pics and some real quick finds I cleaned up last night... sorry about the pic quality, I do not own a fancy camera. I love when I am lined up with conference calls and I can enjoy my hobby why listening to statistical analysis (actually mostly ignoring). I will try to save more pics in the comment sections. One specimen has me confused. I found a number of trilobite pieces throughout my day and collected around 25 hash plates with several in them. I have yet to clean them up. But pictured below (if it lets me) is what appears to be the bottom portion of a trilobite but I'm unsure.
  6. Hello everyone! I recently went on my first fossil digging adventure here in Germany on my way back from the Alps. I only had a couple hours to poke around at the Eichstätt fossil quarry, but managed to find a few specimen during that time. It might not be much to some of you but considering it was my first attempt I was quite happy! I honestly could have spent days digging if time allowed.
  7. Hello, I've got 13 fossils of which I'm not sure what they are. All fossils are bought, which is why I can't say much about the geological layer and location they're from. I used a ruler with inches and cm sizing. I don't really have to know the 100% exact specimen (please feel free to give the details though if you have them), I would like to have a general idea of what I'm looking at. 1. Sold to me as bamboo, not sure if it is: 2. Sold as a waterlily, its a cross-section: 3. same story as up. I don't know what it actually is: 4. looks like a lizard foot, but it's probably coral. 5. Some kind of crazy stain?? 6. This is obviously a tooth of a carnivore, I would like to know if its mammalian or from a dinosaur. For this one, I would love to know the specifics but shoot away with your ideas on it. 7. Looks like bone, mammalian? Is it even bone? 8. Another piece of supposed to be bone. 9. Bone/wood? who knows? 10. looks like its bone, but really don't know.. 11. Looks like something from the sea... 12. Could be a tooth of a herbivore, could also be anything else. 13. The last of the bunch, its sold to me as coprolite but it doesn't really look like it. I would love to know your ideas on this collection. I am an amateur collector and I can identify some fossils/stones but for these, I really need your help. Thanks in advance.
  8. Can anyone help me with the water levels at Greens mill run? Going to make a trip there in the next couple days and I want to make sure it’s not super high.. anyone in the area seen if the 10th street bridge is high or the park?! Please and thank you!!
  9. This Summer’s Finds

    Hello all! While these are all only pieces of teeth, I have found two species I never have before. I found an angustidens as well as a small GW fragment. If any of my ID guesses are wrong, feel free to point them out. Thanks for looking. Also, notice the serrations in the close ups of the GW fragment and how they differ from the close ups of a baby meg.
  10. So i sent 2 of my finds off for prep and have recieved them back now. looks like the delivery man has just thrown them over my 6 Foot gates despite there being FRAGILE stickers all over the box. I’m hoping they have jumped over the gates and placed it down, but who knows. theres no damage to the pieces but it could have been very disappointing!
  11. Hi everyone! I'm doing Paleoart as you know,so I'm willing to trade for my drawings.I'm interested in all kinds of fossils...I would rather fossil trade with my own fossils,but now I'm having problems with sending them to another country ( I have trade successfully with them earlier).And now I'm trying to solve that problem and It takes time.Because of that i have drawings and i can send them easily.I'm doing all kinds of prehistoric animals as u know. If anyone is interested,feel free to send me a message Thanks
  12. I didnt know where to post this? Its not prepped. It was just found, but sadly, not by me. I just wanted to show this to folks. Too cool not too. If its in the wrong place, please move it. Thanks. My best buddy goes to England every year to metal detect. He met my other buddy, Al Lang, whilst on one of those trips and they became freinds. I was just sent these photos this morning. Really really cool. I only wish that I could prep something like this. Supposed to be 19 Eurypterids on it. Just Wow!!! RB
  13. Bison tooth ?

    Hi to all. Today i found this tooth in the stream in the middle of the Forest. Last time when i was there,i found one huge oyster.So the question is:Is this a Bison tooth or not? The one on the right side i found on the road near the forest,it's also heavy as this one from the stream. If someone can help, it would be much appreciated
  14. would like to know incase i decide to vacation there. (although im not going on any vacays this year so yeah)
  15. Found this 2 weeks ago in Ramanessin Creek in Holmdel, NJ. It looks like a vertebrae from a larger fish like a shark or large ray, but I'm confused by the mushroom like shape of the one side, so I'm not sure. It measures about 1.2" across and about 0.9" high. I though that maybe it was the last vertebrae before the brain stem or something like that, and therefore the mushroom end may be the side nearest the brain and have a different shape. Any help and / or insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, John
  16. @Cris and I went to a brand new, unexplored site for us the other day, and it was definitely promising! We grabbed the canoe and went in a small, swampy creek. After lifting the canoe over what seemed like hundreds of log jams, we finally ended up finding some gravel! Sure enough, the gravel contained some fossils and we freaked out! Nothing insane was found this time, but we believe there is some amazing potential. We'll be heading back to this site for more exploration very soon!
  17. Hello to everybody! I'm kinda new here, but before I start I must say I really love this forum! It has really great vibes and you instantly can tell that this is a good and friendly community! So, I am ziggycardon, I live in Belgium, close to the border of the Netherlands and when we start speaking geologically, I live on the same cretaceous sediments as where the first major Mosasaurus discoveries where done! Unfortunatly I have never been on a fossil hunt myself and everything currently in my collection was bought or given to me. But I hope to change that soon, as I am dying to go hunting myself. Maybe the Chalk sediments 3 km from my home would be a good place to start! For the rest, my job, my major hobby and my other main interest besides fossils are living animals. I currently work as the head of terrarium & aquarium in 3 different pet stores and I have quite a collection of reptiles, amphibians, invertebrates and tropic fish myself. In my spare time I often take my own living animals along with my fossils and other educational natural history material to schools so I can teach kids about nature and it's history and hidden mechanics. For the rest are my other hobbies mainly based around movies and televisions as I collect a lot of stuff drom my favorite franchises like "Lord or the Rings" & "The Hobbit", "Game of Thrones, "Pirates of the Caribbean", ... And I also attent a lot of comic cons and other events related to those franchises. But then this topic! In this topic I will show my collection of fossils (and also minerals, stones and meteorites) as it is right now and then I will highlight each group of fossils bit by bit. I am currently starting with a own specialized fossil room, so ofcourse the progress and end result will also be posted here! And ofcourse when something get's added to my collection, I'll show it here as well. Sometimes a photo of my "special" pets or taxidermy specimens might pop up, but this topic will mainly be about the fossil room and my fossil collection. For the rest, if you have any comments or questions about the collection or about me or about anything, feel free to ask! I'd love to reply!
  18. Birthday Fossils

    Hey guys, today (Sept, 8) was my birthday, and my parents, knowing I'm a fossil fanatic gave me some for my birthday. Heres what I got: Croc Tooth I will get better pics of the shrimp and croc tooth tomorrow, it's too late at night right now.
  19. Here are some photos of today's trip to the Peace. Will post individuals on ID for help if you guys get some times and have some advise you are welcomed! They are still wet so more clarity on individuals will post later.
  20. where to find fossils in florida?

    just a simple question if i decide to go on a nice (and probably short) holiday .
  21. Going to NJ

    I am going to Cape May County, NJ the middle of this month. I thought while I was there enjoying the beach and surf that I would also look for some fossils. Is there anywhere around Cape May County, Atlantic or Cumberland Counties that I can go hunt for fossils? I figure while I'm in that area I might as well look around.
  22. There is only one way to do this. 1. Do it 2. Say sorry
  23. Hi guys me again, Anyone knows of a turtle with spikes on the Miocene of Florida? Regards, Alex
  24. Unidentified ammonites

    Hi! Can anyone tell me what species of ammonites are these? They were found in France and they are from the Jurassic period.Any help would be much appreciated.
  25. Guys, In 4 days of sifting in this locality (Caloosahatchee River/Fisheating Branch) I have only found 2 shark teeth, in reality I didn't expect to find any at all as it seems to have been amphibian/mammal/mollusk land which points to a lacustrine environment. So at some point the area must have been a shallow see as well but there is no way to know age difference. Anyhow here are the two specimens I found. Both small in size (nursery area?). There is a lot of info on shark teeth around but I am having difficult with this two guys. Any thoughts? Thanks, Alex
