  1. Hunting in Texas

    Hello all! I am wondering if I could get some ideas for places to hunt fossils in Texas. We are currently just north of Dallas and will be heading sort of diagonally to the big bend area. Any ideas of good spots to hunt fossils aong the way. (Some of the trip will have a 9 year old. Any kid friendly spots also appriciated) thanks all in advance!
  2. today i have found another inclusion from my raw lot of cretaceous NJ amber. it bears resemblance to a stellate fern hair (comparison picture shown below) and also to stellate fern hairs I have found in a piece of (presumably baltic or dominican) amber that is 30 MYO. i'm not sure about this and i was wondering if anyone could shed some light on it, have these been documented in NJ amber before? (probably) anyway, here are the pictures: the fossil in NJ amber i found---> comparison picture of another stellate fern hair i found this one on the internet---> another stellate fern hair i found in 30 MYO amber (probably baltic, maybe dominican) -->
  3. Is this Dino egg real ? Or just a rock?
  4. ID help

    I found this in a Southcentral KY branch about 100 yds down from where a spring was bubbling up out of the ground. Looked this morning for about an hr or so on help IDing it but had no luck. This thing is almost same size as a small can of soup and looks to be perfectly round with no tapering. Anyone in the know?

  9. Bivalve?

    Hi, This is my first post and I'm very new to fossils and minerals but also very interested in learning, now that I've found this new interest. Last weekend I was hiking with a friend on a dinosaur footprint trail and found this. I thought it had an interesting shape. I'm guessing it's just bivalves attached to the rock, but would like some other opinions since I know very little about fossils. Thank you in advance
  10. I've just visited this hill directly north of the Trump National Golf Course (yes, the president owned a golf course in my city ) which I was told by a museum docent had fossil fish scales. Here's what I found which could possibly be fish scale fossils, but I need a full confirmation on this. Some notes -All three rocks are associated- they were all part of a giant piece of shale rock which was broken into pieces when I found it. -The "fish scales" are a more darker or orange brown. -I think I was unable to capture the best possible detail due to the absence of natural lighting which made details more camouflaged. -Each "fish scale" lie on only one layer, throwing off the possibility of it being a crystal. -The black stuff are dendrites or a similar type. -Found in the Palos Verdes Hills, directly north of the Trump National Golf Course. Rock 1 Rock 2 Rock 3 Is this my first ever fossil find or another bust?
  11. Hi all... I finally got my new prep lab up and running and pulled a jacket out of storage. A pile of crocodilian scutes and a few bones form the Eocene Wasatch Fm of southwestern Wyoming. i have exposed the bones and I am stumped. Do I leave these bones in matrix to show them as found, or take them out and have a cool collection that is much more easily stored or displayed. They main argument for removing them is that it is a fairly big bloc, and I don't have all that much display space, and it is not really articualted. The main argument for displaying as is is that it would be a lot less work. A lot less. I kinda want to know what you folks think. I was hoping I would find a skull or a jaw, but no such luck yet, although there are few areas that puzzle me. Here are some pix. Notice that it is primarily scutes, as croc skeletons tend to be. and a few closer up shots. Here is a pile of scutes. and here are two leg bones... and a bunch more scutes, and at the top of the picture is a string of articulated verts. Here is another shot of the verts. Through the out-of-focusitude, notice how fractured they are. These will be a lot of fun to put back together, but they will look a lot better (I hope). Thanks for looking and What would you do?

  19. Term needed

    The other day I saw a term used that i forgot to write down and can't find again. HINTS: 1. It described "wishfull" seeing i.e. seeing something (a fossil) in a rock that wasn't there but was suggested by cracks, lines, or structures in the rock. 2. it started with p----- 3. It was in the ID section, as I recall. Any help would be appreciated.

    Hello, this trilobite was found in rock from somewhere upstate new york. It was an interesting shape different from what I have found before but it is very worn to tell exactly what it is to my knowledge, is it to broken up to id?
