  1. I have been fossil at Tillywhandland quarry near Forfar and have found quite a few Acanthodian fossils, which I thought would share everyone. I could also do with some help identifying species of some of the fossils. I know the first four fossils are Mesacanthus mitchelli, but the rest I am not too sure about.
  2. Sharktooth Hill mammal tooth

    Hello TFF, I found this mammal tooth recently at Sharktooth Hill in Bakersfield, CA. It's about .5" long and looks like a bit of the enamel has broken off. I think it might be a Neotherium mirum tooth but I'm hoping someone more educated can nail it down for me. Thanks for the help!
  3. First Trip to Ernst Quarries

    Hello all my fellow fossil lovers! This is my first post on here for a while, I've been lurking around and admiring everyones finds. But y'all have motivated me to actually get out and start hunting! I will be driving up with my girlfriend from Los Angeles to Ernst Quarries in Bakersfield, CA on March 28th. For people who may not be familiar, this is part of the infamous Shark Tooth Hill, dated to the Miocene at 12-15 mya. It is a pay-to-dig site, and not too bad at $40 for a full day of digging. Is anyone on here planning on going that day or have been recently? How does the quarry look like after all the rain we have been having? Does anyone have any tips on what extra tools that are helpful to bring? From what I have read on here, a Pickaxe is helpful for exposing the bonebed. I will also be purchasing my first Estwing Geologic Hammer (the 22 oz with pick end) for the occasion and also to celebrate finishing my semester of Paleontology. Some brushes are also helpful for cleaning up the teeth in matrix too. Anything else that is suggested? Please feel free to share your Ernst Quarry experiences and advice, if you do feel so inclined I will update the thread with pictures of the results - hopefully we will be able to find some goodies
  4. Hillside trek

    The temperatures finally behaved today and dipped into the 80's. I just had to take advantage of that since it has been triple digits all Summer up until now. I quickly threw my backpack and shovel into the car and away I went. The morning started out very slow. It takes a few hours of digging and moving overburden just to clear a space to begin some actual hunting. I had been finding real small teeth for about the first two hours of digging. Then it happened! I loosened a chunk of matrix and this just fell into my hand. I have been digging in Bakersfield for a good 5 years and had never even found a trace of Megalodon tooth, not even a sliver! Today was the day. Not only that, but about 30 minutes later I found another partial broken tooth. Two rarities within an hour. Ya, I know you East coast guys are saying "big whoop". Well Megs don't come round these parts too often and certainly don't show themselves to me. It isn't the prettiest, but it is a Bakersfield first for me. I'm going to guess and say it's between the 4.5" - 5" range.
  5. Hi everyone, I made a trip in the Judean Mountains around the city of Ramallah yesterday. It was there that I found this specimen. The scale provide is in cm: the specimen is about 6 cm long, that is about 2.5 inches. I found it on a high hill at an altitude of about 800 m (2600), on the ground among countless rock fragments. The hill was subject to severe erosion and bedrock was visible all over with patches of earth and smaller rocks in between. The rock seemed to be limestone, with many features that I as a novice can only describe in the most casual terms: many spherical holes turtle shell pattern on the surface of rock large and small pebbles embedded in the rock, apparently slightly more resistant to erosion I would like to ask you the identity ofthis specimen, and would also be interested to read tips on how to identify promising spots to find more fossils based on altitude, surrounding rock, layers... Thank you for your time!
  6. Shartooth Hill ID

  9. Shark Teeth ID Needed

    Over the weekend I acquired some shark teeth that I would like to have ID'd. The teeth in the upper left are from Argentina which is about as much as I can tell you. The bottom right are from Sharktooth Hill in California.
