  1. Penn Dixie oddity

    A visitor brought this item up front and I'm pulling the room to see if anyone has a definite ID on this piece. It's almost like coal, definitely seems like a carbonized something. Doesn't have the calcite to indicate plant, perhaps a fish coprolite? Thanks in advance.
  2. Community on the Half-Shell

    I love finding multiple fossils. I don't just mean multiple specimens in a single rock, I mean fossils that show evidence of more than one life-form. Shells with burrow traces, for one example. Dung beetle balls. Predation marks. And particularly, epibionts. Here I have a fairly ordinary specimen of the brachiopod Tropidoleptus carinatus. Ordinary, that is, until a closer look is taken.... This specimen supported an variety of other critters on its pedicle valve. Whether the epibionts took hold while the brachiopod was alive, or colonized the dead shell, I don't know; I would speculate the former, as the brachiopod is articulated. I think it is likely that the whole living community was buried together by mud. So who's here? Let's take a closer look. We have several examples of Cornulites hamiltoniae. Some are (relatively) large, while others are very small: Two more Cornulites pictures, then we'll see who else lived here!
  3. What's inside this rock?

    My brother found this rock in a small area full of rocks near Miry Run in Hamilton NO. The rocck in this area is mostly form the Triassic and Cretacious with a small bit of rock from the Cambrian. Inside the rock, there is a circle that has 2 "prongs" coming of of it. My brother thinks that it is a vertebra. Here is a picture. The 2 prongs are on the bottom. I hope you can identify this. Thank you in advance.
  4. Fossil Locations Hamilton

    Hello, are there any fossil hunting locations in Hamilton, NJ? It doesn't matter what time period, only the fact that it has fossils. I don't mind what condition they're in too. Thanks in advance.
  5. Roadcut in Hamilton

    Today I decided to go and visit a roadcut that I red on one of the Silurian literatures I got my hands on (a big thank you to those that led me to those PDFs relating to the geology of the Niagara Escarpment). It turns out the roadcut on the Niagara Escarpment is near my home which is a pleasant suprise to me, considering that I have been disappointed by the Queenston formation. This roadcut is actually several exposures that run on an access road that can lead one to the upper part of Hamilton, Ontario. Here is the exposure I decided to explore. I chose this exposure as the access is a busy boulevard with cars driving by with no sidewalks and pedestrians. I had several people honk and call out to me as I was exploring the site. Maybe I should have worn a safety vest of some sort? Is that even necessary?
  6. Today I managed to explore and observe an exposure of the Queenston formation up close here in Hamilton, Ontario. I chose a site along the Red Hill Valley Expressway that was easy to access and get down to for a close look. The creek is right next to the highway. I have always passed by this exposure and anticipated the day I'll be able to observe it. The Queenston formation is the last Ordovician formation in south-western Ontario before the rocks hit the Silurian age. The Queenston is what overlains the Georgian Bay formation, the formation I use to hunt in frequently in Toronto, Ontario. This is Red Hill Creek as it passes by next to the Highway.
  7. Fossil Hunting in Hamilton?

    Hi guys Im thinking of fossil hunting at some of Hamilton, Ontario waterfall areas like Albion Falls and Webster's Falls and does anyone have any pdf papers relating to the geology of the area? I heard there are various Silurian formations that can be found at Hamilton.
  8. I'll be heading up to Syracuse this weekend for the Science Olympiad Middle School State finals. That means I'll be able to hunt Sunday anywhere in the area from Syracuse south. Who wants to join? The plan is to hit one or more of the quarries about an hour south of Syracuse, but I could be convinced to head towards Herkimer, Little Falls, or one of the Catskill quarries instead.

  10. Penn Dixie Devonian

    Haven't been posting lately, life has thrown me a few curve-balls this summer, but I was taking a closer look at my Penn Dixie crinoids and came across these two pieces I found on the surface of a dry pyrite bed, (Middle Devonian.) I had always thought they were crinoids—and may very well be, but they don't match up with anything that I've come across so far, especially for the area. Also, it's tough to tell in the picture but those protrusions are definitely spiny—that is to say pointed. Thank you in advance!
  11. Penn Dixie Site - May 2016
