  2. Melbourne Fossils

    G’cay everyone, My uncle is heading down to Melbourne, Florida tomorrow for a University conference and he was thinking of doing some fossiling down there. Being an Aussie, I do not know much about fossils around Melbourne but have done some research and believe you can collect some micro fossils from the Indian river? He does not plan to travel ouf of Melbourne. Any help regarding sites around Melbourne and tools needed would be appreciated. Thanks, Daniel

    Hello all! I'm back again with some unidentified fossils. I was working in my garden this afternoon and stumbled across a rock containing a cluster of small fossils, ranging in size. These were found in Northern Illinois, close to where I found another shell fossil I asked about. All comments are appreciated! Thanks!
  8. If you had $50 to spend on fossils what would you get? Please include price and pictures
  9. Pine Cliff NC Trip #2

    Hey guys I went to Pine Cliff NC again.(I went Sunday aswell ) This time was a bit more interesting, though not as big teeth some other stuff. I found a fired .22 bullet which is just great. Found some bear poop, even better. I found some cool shells and what apears to be a fossilized tiny mammal jaw fragment. I also found a ray mouth plate which I haven't found before. Does anything stand out to you? anyone know what these are? Possible jaw fragment anyone know what this could be? anyone know the species?
  10. Hello everyone!! I have picked a couple of locations around Lake Texoma on the boarder of Texas and Oaklahoma. Dose anyone have any good advice for the area? This will be our first trip their and everything I’ve read and researched on the area is roughly 3-4 years old. So I’m looking for some current info. Thanks so much for any help you can give us.
  11. What are some places in eastern North Carolina to find fossils? (besides aroura)
  12. Multi Ammo Rock

    I was moving some stuff around and doing a small bit of cleanup to make some room on my prep bench. Ran into a very nice little finished crab which i had forgotten about, and also ran into this multi ammo rock that ive been working on from time to time and then It got buried and forgotten. Put in about 3 hours of rock removal and its starting to look like something now. Its got a long ways to go still, but at least its finally gettin there. Where ever 'there' is. Ha!!! Anyways, I removed a heck of alot of rock from this rock after gluing it back together. Just glad I wasnt keeping track of the hours! RB
  13. Just got back from a week fossil hunting trip in North Yorkshire. It's fair to say it was pretty productive! Lots of nodules still need to be popped open!
  14. I was just wondering if anyone could help me out with identification of these objects found inside a hard sandstone matrix, I was given this stuff years ago from an old friend and had never looked at it properly at all,(I cut gemstones for a living and so the rough, stony stuff never got much attention,), . I was cleaning up and decided to wash the dirty stuff(like 20 years of dirt plus some decomposed something, probably rat). Once clean, I could see things embedded in the stone, So ... being curious me,..I slowly got one out. What is this?? Is it a bone or a bit of wood or something?.. how do you tell ? it’s around 5cm long, 13mm wide and 6-7mm thickness , picture is of one in the sandstone and one out... any help on ID would be great thank you for looking
  15. I was inspired to post this after reading all of the mixed opinions on previous thread on the “Fossils from Hell Creek, Carthage Institute” book. Which books currently (accurate and as of date) are the best for learning about Hell Creek Fossils? Best visuals, info, and overall great reference.
  16. Hello everyone! In a weeks time I will be travelling to Wollongong to do some work experience at Wollongong University for a couple days. While I am there, I was thinking of doing some fossicking. I do not plan to go very far from Wollongong (Furthest going is Picton) I am looking for sites that are close to Wollongong. I know fossil wood can be found on beaches around Wollongong and was wondering if there was any specific beaches I should visit? Also heard there is Triassic fish fossils in Picton that I am excited about. Thanks, Daniel
  17. Something that comes up for me now and again(like right now), is when someone is selling a fossil of something that is extremely rare, or maybe BEYOND extremely rare. Is there an easy place to check that kinda stuff? Find out if fossils are being found of them? Specifically Ive seen sarchosuchus teeth and scutes for sale, but as far as I know, only 1 specimen has ever been found, and that was only the skull, and....I dunno, maybe a few verts or something. Even if a number more have been found, like a dozen individuals or something, there's really no way you would ever find something like that for sale would you? And if you did, it would HAVE to be in the hundreds of thousands or millions, or something?
  18. Hello everyone! I'm taking the wife and kids to South Padre Island in a couple of weeks. Of course I'm hoping to find some fossils while I'm down there. I've read about people finding some Pleistocene fossils while on the beach. Does this seem far fetched? Any advice would be much appreciated. Thank you.
  19. I found another in the same area..

    I want to give a thanks for all the input and replies on my previous post....going thru mu finds from the same area, I found this smorgasbord of fossils, and was looking to see if I could get help once again?. Please and thanks in advance!!.
  20. I just uploaded the first of many fossil hunting vids to my YouTube channel. I should be able to share a lot more of my fossil hunts this way from now on. We (@addicted2fossils and myself) were walking dirt roads in FL that have shell material dumped on them, with teeth mixed in. We also found tons of invertebrates (gastropods, bivalves, coral), calcite crystals, whale bone, a nice great white shark tooth, a nice meg, lots of partials, etc. For those of you who do not want to watch a video, here's some pics from the hunt:
  21. Today i finally visited port mulgrave. It was wet, sludgy and foggy. I had looked forward to visiting this place for ages. I parked at the top and then begun the long slippery climb down. The ladders are pretty steep and it’s a long, wet climb down but it’s worth it for crazy fossil hunters like us. Once at the bottom and you climb down the ladder to the beach ammonites are everywhere, i found two right next to each other (bottom left picture). I was very pleased to find a good belemnite and it came out without breaking! It seems you’ll always find things here, But the hardest part is getting back up the cliff with a bag full of fossils. Here are my finds from today! A very productive site! Thanks for reading
  22. This is my first time posting. My husband is a huge fossil enthusiast. Our two sons and I would like to surprise him by taking him on a fossil hunting excursion for Father's Day. We live in NYC, and are hoping to find someplace that's fun, that's within 2-3 hours of the city, and that also has the opportunity to hike or swim or do one other activity of some kind. Any suggestions? Thank you for any help or ideas you can share - we really appreciate it.
  23. Today i visited runswick bay. I’ve been to this beach before and it’s lovely. There is a nice big car park, toilets and a cafe for a cuppa. These photos show the view from near the car park. When we arrived there wasnt many people on the beach but it soon got busier and the car park was near full when we left. Sadly i didnt find very many fossils but i did find two dacs. We met a photographer down on the beach who didnt have much luck finding anything so we gave the bottom ammonite to give to his young son. Another great, dry day. Still looking for my first reptile find though.
  24. Zdravo to all! Here is something new! Homotherium crenatidens which i've done few days ago.Hope u gonna like it! Enjoy
  25. About a month ago, I headed out on two fossil trips to the well-known St. Leon roadcut in Indiana. I was hunting in the Liberty formation (late Ordovician) with the sole goal of finding some nice trilobites (which I definitely achieved!). Along with multiple rare trilobites, I was able to find some excellent examples of other fossils. The spoils were totally awesome, and I am itching to go back. I hope you enjoy. Best for last.
