  3. Basilosauridae partial vertebrae

    From the album Marine reptiles and mammals

    Vertebrae damaged during or before fossilization, from a basilosauridae. Found in Albany, GA, in the Ocala limestone formation, an Eocene deposit laid down by the swannee current between about 34-56 mya. The exact species is possibly still up in the air, since it is been suggested that it is something other than the original ID. We're still looking into the possibilities. Found in Georgia, so that limits the possibilities, but still leaves open a number of basilosauridae, including some dorudontinae such as Zygorhiza. Zygorhiza, which is what it was originally supposed to be, is iffy since it hasn't officially ever been found in GA, but I don't think that means it hasn't, doesn't that just mean it hasn't been found by scientific authorities, or confirmed by such? it seems however, that the person who ID'd it as Zygorhiza was Professor Mark Uhen, who I guess is an authority on the subject, but as before, they're not supposed to be found in GA. Another possibility from a different authority on the subject has ID'd it as Cynthiacetus, which I personally would prefer, but sadly that doesn't have any impact in the matter:(
  4. Hello, I have been a long time member of the fossil forum, but I have never posted before. I live in south Florida and I am planning on making a trip up to northwestern Georgia, northeastern Alabama, and southeastern Tennessee for two or three days and I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on fossil hunting sites in the region. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

  6. I'm preparing a teacher education workshop which includes a fossil hunting and identification activity. The teachers are coming from many states across the country. I'd like to include some suggestions of sites where they could replicate the things they learn and experience during the workshop with their students in the vicinity of their respective schools. I have the Indiana schools covered. For the ones near Dallas, I'm thinking Mineral Wells Fossil Park (and maybe Ladonia for older, more adventuresome students). The ones I need help with are sites within field trip range of the following: Austin, TX ( @Uncle Siphuncle, @KimTexan, @BobWill, @erose)? Atlanta, GA Golden, CO Palm Bay, FL (near Melbourne) Naples, FL (any shell dump piles accessible to and suitable for k-12?) @digit ? Bentonville, AR Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, either posted here or via PM. I have alternative activity suggestions for them (e.g. bags of matrix to sift, etc) if they can't do a field trip, but there's nothing quite like the experience of hunting and discovery in the field... I would have done backflips if my grade school had had a fossil trip...
  7. Three root tooth - Help with ID

    I found this teeth on a beach in the Savannah River. I have to specimens both broken but I believe there the same species. Both have the what it appears to be a three root base. Specimen A Any input its appreciated! Thanks!!
  8. Fossil ID mammal teeth?

    Found this three on the savannah river near Tybee Island. A I think might be a capybara tooth? B I have no idea! C Maybe dolphin? It has a curvness where I think another tooth created some wear. Any help is appreciated! Thanks!!
  9. Ivory / tip of tusk? Help ID

    Hi! I found this ivory piece I would like some help... Its has a rounded tip so I figure it might be a type of tusk tip? I know ivory grows on ring like formations but this piece is almost flat like more of a oval. And its so polish on the outer layer. I found it in a beach near Tybee Island in the Savannah River. Any help is apprecieated!!! Thanks in advance
  10. Hi all I can see an optical illusion when looking at these trilobite photographs but you will need to come back to the post a couple of time for it to work. So is it positive or negative?
  11. Hi all, I have a mysterious croc tooth that needs identifying. It measures 7cm in a straight line, with a crown length of 3cm. It was found in a backwater near Savannah, Georgia. It came out of an old stream bed eroding out. The area is normally a Miocene deposit where there are Gavialosuchus americanus but the original owner (who is a fossil croc expert) sincerely believes it's something else as there are supposedly earlier deposits there as well. He thinks it is from the lineage of Deinosuchus. Has anyone seen such croc/alligator teeth in Georgia? Has anyone heard of late Cretaceous deposits near Savannah? Thank you.
  12. Cambrian Trilobite Verification

    A Fossil Forum friend sent me a few Georgia rocks to split. They were full of trilobites and bits. I believe these are all Aphelaspis brachyphasis but I understand this site has other species as seen in this information : Locality 1 is an outcrop in Murray County. The matrix is mudstone and the researchers report “very abundant specimens” of Aphelaspis brachyphasis often as body clusters. Locality 1, Murray County: Agnostus inexpectans Aspidagnostus rugosus Glyptagnostus reticulatus Aphelaspis brachyphasis ; Could any knowledgeable person verify the identities of these trilobites. As I said , it seems like they are all A. brachyphasis but the HUGE size differences to the trilobites leave me wondering whether I am missing something. Thanks.
  13. East Coast fossil road trip

    Hello! Later this year I'm planning on moving from Florida back to New England. I was hoping to make the voyage into an interesting road trip... I've heard of several places in the Eastern half of the US where you can dig your own fossils. I know that there are some places in Georgia and the Carolinas that are good to find Megalodon teeth, and some places in the northern US that are good for finding trilobites... I'm up for anything interesting and was looking for suggestions on exact places, tour companies, people, anything that you can offer that might extend my collection on the trip!
  14. Conasauga Formation Trilobite ID

    Today I was picking through some of the matrix that I have from the Conasagua Formation from Murray County, Georgia and came across a trilobite that surprised me by its size and nice detail. Unfortunately, this trilobite is not complete, and from my limited knowledge of trilobites, it does not look like the Aphelaspis brachyphasis trilobites that i find from that location. Lastly, if it is an Aphelaspis, it must be one on steroids. Any help would be appreciated. @Kane , @sixgill pete , @Fossildude19 , @WhodamanHD , @FossilDAWG An Aphelaspis - on the larger size of what I find. Unknown:
  15. The mudstone from the Conasauga Formation in Murray County, Georgia produces a nice quantity and quality of the trilobite "Aphelaspis brachyphasis" (below). But when it comes to the Agnostoid trilobites, I have only found pieces, that is until tonight. I finally found a complete specimen, though the quality is not the greatest, it is complete.
  16. Shark Tooth ID

    Hello, I have been collection shark teeth and other coastal fossils for some time now. Only recently have I developed an interest in identifying them all. I have been working through the dichotomous keys, various ID sites, and old fossil forum threads trying to get a feel for general teeth shapes. Below are three teeth that I am having trouble with. They are in fairly poor condition (especially their roots), but I think you all may be able to identified them by general shape. The first one is particularly interesting to me because it is very thick, it feels fat, bulging even on the labial side. These three teeth were collected in Georgia salt marshes (Pleistocene I believe). Thank you!
  17. Tonight I decided to split some of the Georgia Cambrian Conasauga Formation matrix that I have. Here are some of the complete/ near complete trilobites that I found.
  18. Hi! Its been awhile since I posted so I've accumulated several new specimens. They are all from a beach in the Savannah River. Many are broken... A - Giant Beaver Tusk B - Elephant Ivory piece (note the schreger pattern) (Is there a way to know the species?) C - Capybara D - ??? E - Canis ??? F - Tapir ??? G - ??? H - ??? I'll post more in a second part... Any comments are greatly appreciated!!!
  19. What are the laws on collecting on public land in GA (ie roads) etc?
  20. Georgia Trilobites

    I did not think that I was going to have time to hunt Georgia Cambrian trilobites – Aphelaspis brachyphasis from the Conasauga Formation, but I did find a couple hours to collect. So this morning I left at 7 AM and drove one and a half hours to Murray County, Georgia to collect at a small exposure on the Consssuga River. It was a cold morning, 31°, even by my Chicago standards for October. The purpose for this visit visit was to gather some matrix for winter work. If you have a chance to visit this site, besides being abundant , many of your finds will have multiple trilobites on the mudstone. Below are a couple pics of the area, as well as some of the trilobites that I found.
  21. Need help identifying this fossil I found while trying to find shark teeth on Tybee Island in Georgia. One photo is in b&w so I could fit both sides on this post.
  22. Found in Georgia

    My family and I headed out to shark tooth beach on jekyll island tonight and I found this. I have no idea what it is but I feel like it's staring at me... or is a nose... or something. Anyway my 5 year old won't stop asking about it and I can't find anything like it online. Any help would be greatly appreciated. It's about the size of a quarter. Thank you!
  23. Me and my family are about to embark on a trip to Jekyll Island off the coast of Georgia. I am more keen on geology than paleontology so I honestly don't really know where to start I know the basics of the basics but would love a couple tips and maybe a few suggestions on where to look. Thank you so much!
  24. Unknown fossil, excited six-year-old.

    We are not sure what this is. My daughter is very excited. She thinks she's found her first fossil. Does anyone know?
