  1. What animal is this vertebra from?

    Not a fossil, but wondering if anyone has any ideas about what animal it's from... It's big and old. Found in pinestraw purchased in northeast Georgia.
  2. Need ID Please

    Found in Savannah GA dredge spoils, no idea what it is: need help.
  3. Need ID Please

    I don’t usually pick up anything other than shark teeth but this was interesting. What is it?
  4. Been awhile since I posted anything so I thought I'd drop some pics of the nice teeth from my trip two weeks ago. The makos are both a little shy of 3" and were laying about twelve inches from each other on the bottom. The nicer one was sticking up out of the bottom and if you look closely, you can see the discoloration on the tip where it was exposed. Those were the only teeth I found at that spot besides a 6" shamer that was split in two, so I was really happy to find them. The big one was a really lucky find. I was on an older spot that I'd hit before so I tried going a different direction and ended up in a spot where two feet of mud covered hard bottom. It was pretty tough going and I was just starting to wonder if maybe it would be a good idea to head back to some easier spots when my hands ran over the tooth. Again, that was the only tooth I found on that dive, so I was pretty stoked. There's a little enamel peel, but I worked so hard to find it that I really just don't care. It comes in at 5 3/4. It looks bigger than that because of the position. You can see how big the root is for the blade size. Had it been an anterior tooth, it would've easily be 6". Hope you like looking at them as much as I liked finding them.
  5. Finding Cambrian Trilobites!

    Hey TFF Members! I was able to do something very different from the normal Florida fossil hunting the other day. On the way up to Michigan for my Mother's wedding I stopped in Northern GA to hunt for Trilobites! I was saying the age wrong throughout the video, I thought they were Devonian. But turns out they are actually Camrian... even better! Hope you can check out the video when you get a chance. I had an amazing time doing this!
  6. Dredge spoils fossil ID help

    This and others like it were found on a dredge spoils beach on the Jekyll river on jekyll island, Georgia. Thank you for your help identifying this partial fossil. I presume it is a tooth, but I have been unable to find a reference for ID. I found four partial pieces similar to this, but the one in the photographs is most complete. There are two holes with a depression between them, and grooves on the outside edges on either side of the depression. Any help would be appreciated. Ruler represents inches.
  7. Tibbs Bridge still viable?

    Hey everyone I'm pretty new to fossil hunting and have seen Tibbs Bridge on the Conasauga river mentioned for having trilobites under it anyone know if it's still viable? The mentions I've been seeing are older. Also anyone know sites around the Columbus area?
  8. ankylosaurus club?

    Location location location...I have 2 acres of my yard on a floodplain. In the middle is the source of a spring, and the far edge there is a creek. Atlanta is near, about 10 miles to the east. Etowah Indian Mounds are to the west about 10 miles. There was also a civil war battle in my yard as well. Plenty of bullets found there still. As I do metal detecting I decided to pull all strange looking "rocks" and put them in various piles. I've done this for the past 2 years and I have quite a mess..or eh, treasure. I just let the rain weather off the thick Georgia clay from the "rock piles" over the span of time and finally have something to show. I'll need a considerable amount of space to put the pictures of all the things I've found, but this forum is only allowing me a small amount right now. Check my last photo against the one Troodon posted here and let me know if you also think they are from the same beautiful beast. Mine is almost a foot long and half a foot wide and weighs just under 1 Thor's hammer. Actually - it weighs 18 pounds. That's about 3 pounds heavier than the egg shaped thing I found near it (not pictured). (note: pic above is from Troodon's thread here: "http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/81257-my-jurassic-park-ankylosauria-hell-creeklance-formation/" As compared to pics from my yard below:
  9. Beginner family friendly spots

    Looking for family friendly spots for VERY BEGINNERS in the Savannah area or Northeast Georgia. Thanks in advance!
  10. Fossil sites

    I am retired military, my wife is a career school teacher, and my son wants to be a paleontologist when grows up. I'm looking for a location that we can turn into a weekend "working" vacation and find some fossils. Not looking to find anything huge or an unknown, just something like sharks teeth. Any help will be appreciated and thanks in advance.
  11. Today, I decided to stop and see what @MeargleSchmeargl left behind at the Conasauga River trilobite location. I do like collecting at this Cambrian site. It is not a matter of finding trilobites, it is deciding which pieces you want to keep. I only spent about 1 hour there and did not collect any matrix, I just felt like splitting some pieces and finding a few trilobites. Nothing special was found and they we’re all Aphelaspis brachyphasis. As stated in @MeargleSchmeargl post, the River was low and the matrix was dry, thus making it very easy to split. I have only seen the River lower than today on one other occasion. When it is low, it is easier to maneuver and find a place to get comfortable. Here are my finds from today- this is the least amount of trilobites that I have found, but it because it was just a quick stop and I was taking my time. Here is my favorite find of the day- Here are some others-
  12. It was that time of the month again, when I just had to scratch that fossil hunting itch. After the relative disappointment the other week in Floyd County, I decided to go ahead and pay another visit to my all-time favourite site in Chatsworth. When we got there this morning, it was obvious that the Conasauga river had greatly receded since the last time we saw it. In fact, it was the lowest it's been for more than a year (back in Feb. 2018). River on my last visit (Feb. this year): The river today: And a view from river bank: With how low the river was, I had a greater range of movement than I've had for more than a year's worth of visits to the place as a result. This also meant I had a lot more places to find Trilobites! And the Aphelaspis specimens I found were definitely worth the trip! To be continued
  13. Help IDing

    Need help IDing these two teeth. Found them next to each other, west georgia, between Columbus and Macon. Look like great whites but it seems so far from an ocean and I have no idea how long teeth stay white, assuming they were fossils that washed up in the recent rain.
  14. Meg find ?

    Is the middle tooth a meg ?
  15. Two teeth ... maybe ? Ideas ?

    Found several fossils this morning shark tooth hunting on the beach and was hoping y’all might could tell me what they might be , thanks !
  16. Possible Megalodon Chunk?

    Hi! I’m an amateur fossil hunter from the southern coast of GA. While on a dredged Island, I encountered a fragment of something. I believe this could be a carchorodon megalodon tooth fragment because of it’s smooth “enamel”, sandy texture, and thinkness. Dozens of megalodon teeth have been found in this area. Thoughts? This would help a lot!
  17. Some small fossils

  18. Fossil finds

    Anyone have and ideas on this ? Found it whilst shark tooth hunting on the beach .
  19. Silurian Brachiopods from Georgia

    For reference, here's a link to my recent trip report: There have been two things I've been wondering about the trip: IDs for the brachiopods, and clarification on formation member (I know that it's Red Mountain Formation, but there's multiple members and I'm not sure which one this particular exposure is from). Anyone more knowledgeable on Silurian shells like to chime in?
  20. In May I will be visiting the country of Georgia and I will like to look for some fossils while I am there. Is here anyone who has been to this country or have some information about fossils over there? I will visit the museum of natural history in Tbilisi which looks interesting but I can't find any info about fossil hunting over there. I will be traveling through most of the country and it will be great to bring back some souvenir like that for my collection.
  21. Possible cetacean?

    Hi folks. I found this in a river in south Georgia where there are miocene/eocene fossils. Cetaceans are found here fairly regularly. The flat portion is broken in a weird way, but I'm thinking maybe this is part of a scapula? Thanks very much for looking at it.
  22. At this Murray County location, trilobites are not the only thing that can be found. Last April, I contacted Dr. David Schwimmer, who is a Professor of Geology at Columbus State University in Georgia. Dr. Schwimmer has also published a couple papers on the fossils from the Conasauga Formation. I wanted to see if he could identify a small piece of matrix that contained something that I have not found before, or since. I was thinking that it was some type of algae, so I sent both halves of the fossil down to him so he could examine them and see if he could come up with an ID. Here are the two halves- A couple months later, I was contacted by Dr. Schwimmer and he provided the below response. "We put your anomalous specimen in the SEM (Scanning Electron Microscope) finally, and it turns out there was no image! That means it has no relief, its a color feature, almost certainly iron oxide colors. My interpretation is that it must be some sort of relict carbon-based plant material, which would suggest, as you first assumed, some sort of algae. Since there is no tissue I would rule out red algae, which usually have carbonate crusts, leaving a green alga as the likely source". I let him keep whatever piece that he wanted and he returned the other piece. Here are close ups of the piece that I have in my collection.
