  1. Big Brook Treats

    I wanted to post a couple pics from this weekend. I found a few teeth and things I am happy with. I could use a verification on the identities though. Thanks for looking!! Andy I think these 2 teeth are both Cretolamna Appendiculata. A very nice fish vertabra? And finally my favorite bivalve to find in the brook. I can't identify it for you though. It reminds me of the giant clam that tried to eat Batman and Robin back in the 60's.
  2. Fun playing with the microscope camera, yet disappointing. After putting it under the microscope, I am pretty sure this Meadowtownella crosotus I found this summer is only a partial.
  3. Im going to Victoria on Friday for a week and visiting various locations including: Wangaratta Bendigo Ballarat Warnambool Apollo bay pt phillip bay (beaumaris) So my question is are there any good fossil sites around these areas that i could find some ancient treasures in? Thanks.
  4. A while back, I received a package from our good friend Adam, better known as @Tidgy's Dad. In said package was a small plastic dinosaur that had apparently been gifted to him by none other than @JohnBrewer. This means that this little fella had started his journey in England, made his way to Morocco, and had since travelled to the United States. It was decided after careful consideration that his name was to be Gorgeous George the Globetrotting Gorgosaurus. Now he is traveling the globe spreading joy and cheer to members of TFF! If you are fortunate enough to play host to Gorgeous George, here are the rules: 1. George must be photographed in his host's collection. 2. He must then be sent to an unsuspecting TFF-er along with any trade. (You can't notify the recipient that they are getting him, he must be an unannounced visitor!) 3. He should be accompanied by a note in case the recipient is not familiar with proper Globetrotting Gorgosaurus procedure. 4. In order to increase the odds of surprising his new host, his visit photo should be uploaded only AFTER he has been received at his new temporary home. *NOTE: The hope is that in addition to having fun, this will also give members the chance to share their collections and have their prizes be seen. That being said, he must be photographed with his host collection. This does not mean that he cannot also take field trips to collecting sites and other landmarks and be photographed there as well! (Thank you to @DPS Ammonite for the suggestions!) Let's see how many miles we can put on this little plastic dino! Don't forget to have fun!
  5. Brownies Beach Trip

    Well, I wrote a whole long story about my first trip from NJ to MD, and then I hit some key on my keyboard while I was typing and it deleted or overwrote everything. So here is the shortened version. I left NJ at 2AM on 3/30 and made it to the beach parking lot about 5:45AM. I may have left later but my assessment of the tides seemed to indicate that low was around sun-up. I think I got it wrong. Oh well, there was less traffic anyway. I knew nothing about this place except what I could read on the internet and the advice from a few people in here (Thanks you all!!!). I was dressed and on the beach by 6AM, and I was excited! So I spent the 21 hours over the next two days searching high and low on the beach. It was the most frustrating time I can remember (doing anything!!). I guess I was just not prepared for hunting at the beach. I couldn't find anything. Not a single tooth. At least not for a good 3-4 hours. Then, I chatted for a minute with a woman that was collecting near me. She looked like she was finding things in spots I had just walked over. I told her my story and she helped my see a little better. And she showed me how to find baby teeth in the shells. I felt a little better at least having something in my pocket to show for the trip, even if the teeth were around a 1/4" in size. So most of the rest of my 1st day I spent searching the gravel piles for these baby teeth just so I could have something to bring home. I actually did find 2 other damaged teeth that were of a more legitimate size (in my mind ). One was a Snaggletooth and the other I still don't know what it is. But it was heavier and thicker than anything I had found earlier. Maybe you guys can opine. I didn't do much better the next day either but it was a beautiful, pre-Easter day and I was away from home at the beach and I talked with a lot of really nice people that were also out looking for lightly buried treasure. I spent 12 hours that day (6AM-6PM) roaming from one end of the beach to the other. I did actually find a bunch of interesting souvenirs to stuff my pockets with. Nothing fancy, but interesting to me at least. And I even managed to find a handful of bones and ray plates (which I liked!) and a few vert's and some shells and even a handful more baby-sized teeth with a few medium sized ones thrown in as well. The day was winding down for me. I had to make the 4 hour drive home that night and I was tired, so I began to subconsciously head back to the parking lot. I hadn't found a trip maker yet but it was beginning not to matter anymore. I had a fun trip and figured I'd just have to come back and try again someday. But on my way back to the parking lot I actually did find my trip maker. I found a beautiful blue Snaggletooth. I almost stepped on it as I climbed over some washed up debris. When I looked down and picked it up out of the sand, I couldn't believe what I was seeing. I think I may have yelped out loud a little bit. And I never figured I'd find a Megoladon tooth, so to me, this was the tooth I had hoped to find. NOW, I felt satisfied. And I actually found a couple more and some other medium sized teeth on the way out. When I got the home and spread them out, I was very surprised by the number of different types of sharks I had found. I have some Hemi's, some Tiger sharks, Some Lemon sharks, Some long teeth like Sand Tigers or maybe even a Mako. I'm sure there must be another type or two in the pile. Maybe you guys can lend some expertise for me. So I felt very satisfied with the trip, even though it was the last hour or so that blew things wide open for me. Please feel free to offer an opinion on any of the things I found. I am only able to guess at some of the teeth. I would guess I found some porpoise ribs and some other bones. And 2-3 types of vert's, not counting the white one that probably isn't a fossil. One other thing that was surprising was the number of different looking Ray plates. Thanks for looking and for the trip tips before I left! Andy
  6. Christmas Coprolite

    So what do you do with unwanted/beaten up coprolites? Be like my fiancée and make these! Enjoy and Merry Christmas!
  7. Again, new member

    I’m not a person to try and show off or one up a person. I only want to learn and better myself without stepping on toes and enjoy what I do. I thank everyone for having positive comments and helping me on my previous posts. Here’s some of the finds that I’m pretty proud of and looking for opinions and what people think.
  8. Hi guys, this is a pic of my unfinished prep. I found this ammonite in a woodlands not far from where I live. Along with many other fossils, at first it was so dirty and clumped with hard mud. I've been working about 2 hrs on this now, I'm using a sharp scalpel attached to a pen designed for it, gently etching away any loose material to reveal more of the ammonite, there are some scratch marks left, any ideas how to get them off? How does it look also, don't think I'm finished yet any advice on how else to clean this, bearing in mind it's my first ever prep.
  9. Five days left!!

    There only 5 days left to enter the paleopumpkin decoratingcarving contest!!!! There only ONE entry and I have more items for the swag box!!!! Don't let caldigger win by default!!!!!!!!!
  10. I see a lot of people digging around fire Road B in Bridgeport off 1658 and Wise County Park Road. From what I understand that hillside is Pennsylvanian ? What would be below Pennsylvanian about 80 to 120 feet
