  1. The Crinoid Road Cut

    I don't get to go out fossil hunting as much as I would like these days, but I was able to sneak out to a local road cut for a few hours the other morning. It was the day before my birthday after all! A great excuse for me to convince the wife to watch the kiddos for a few hours. This particular road cut is dated to the Mississippian and is full of crinoids! I was literally walking over them. They were everywhere! Upon closer inspection I found that there were a couple of layers that were mainly composed of crinoids. This large slab was laying on the ground in front of the cut. The slab was almost 2 meters in length. Covered in crinoid fragments. Another large slab of crinoid infested rock. Again, it was on the ground in front of the cut. Yet another slab. I finally remembered to put something in for scale... A picture of what I am calling crinoid gravel. If you look closely you can see many crinoid fragments mixed in. This gravel was up a little higher on the cut. The road cut has multiple accessible levels. Here is a sample of some of the pieces I picked up. In my excitement, I started out picking up everything. Then I quickly realized that was an effort in futility. I thought the specimen at the very bottom right of the picture might have been a calyx when I first picked it up, but I think it may be a geode with a piece of crinoid attached. The largest of the "coin" looking columnals (third in the top row from left to right) is over an inch in diameter. With work being crazy, I haven't had a chance to go through everything and clean them up for a closer look. Sorry this photo isn't the best. It's late here and I'm trying to not wake up the family. Its the best I can do under sub par basement lighting. A very nice (and heavy!) hash plate that I was able to manhandle to the truck. Crinoids were not the only things I found. This horn coral was sticking up out of the rubble just waiting for me to come along and take it home! I like how it is coming up out of the matrix. Lording over its domain! lol I also came across bryozoan on occasion. The shale that they are in is very delicate and brittle. It's barely more than clay. I had to handle with care. Overall it wasn't a bad little outing. Any day out fossil hunting is a good day! I picked up much more, a few longer crinoid stems, a couple of small hash plates to practice prepping on, some geological items for my brother who is more into geology than paleontology. I ran into a few brachiopods, but most were not very well preserved or were badly weathered. Ill try to post a few more/better pictures as I go back through things and get them cleaned up a bit. I also have more pictures of the exposure and crinoid layers that I might post as well. Happy Hunting!
  2. Anyone know what this it?

    Does anyone know what this is? It doesn’t look like a fossil and it looks like some sort of horn/antler section of a mammal. It’s about 7cm long. Thanks in advance.
  3. I found this in the wall of a creek in the TX panhandle. It is 3 1/4 inches long and 2 inches wide at the base. It weighs 7.5 oz. Not sure what it could be and would love to hear from someone who might have some insight. Let me know if I can give more information. Thanks so much.
  4. Just a short video of a quick trip to the beach last week to enjoy the spring sunshine!
  5. What is this?

    Looks like an antler or a tooth? Dug up by a friend who goldmines in the Yukon. I'm thinking maybe a bison? Was hoping a mammoth tusk but think maybe not. What you think? Thank you so much for the information.!
  6. Petrified wood?

    Some one at the park brought this to me I think it may be petrified wood ... was found in the gravel drive it is a pretty good size chunk from the normal gravel chunks. My second thought on it was a chunk of horn but it has no openings on either end. found west of Houston Texas ...from a gravel load from the Brazos River.
  7. Mystery dinosaur Horn

    Here's another Cretaceous western fossil that needs an ID. Its either from Hell Creek or Lance Creek (will have to check my records again), and I initially purchased it as a young triceratops nasal horn. After looking at it some more, I'm wondering if it might be an ankylosaur spike, or maybe something else. Thoughts?
  8. Horn, bone, petrified wood?...or a big 0

    at first glance I was thinking petrified wood but in looking at it it looks kind of hornlike possibly and antler or fragment? but then it may just be another odd rock.
  9. possible whale tooth

    This one confuses me as it doesn't have the dark colors of a tooth. However, it neither has a distinguishable pattern of any coral at the bottom. it's about three inches long.
  10. whale tooth?

    Hello. Brand new to the forum. Found this specimen on a beach on the west coast of Vancouver Island. I have approached a number of paleontologists and amateur fossil hunters about its identity. Responses have varied between being from a smaller toothed whale to a walrus. My dentist questioned it being a tooth because the shape is tapered at the wrong end and thought it may have broken off. He suggested it may be a horn of some kind. I am new to this! Would appreciate any and all suggestions. Thanks.
  11. Can someone please help me out here? I'm new to all of this and my friend is asking me about this fossil he stumbled upon today in Ohio. I've been researching other posts but I'm not 100% on what I'm looking at here. Thank you!
  12. I found this “Fossil” in the Netherlands near the German border about 10 years ago and have always wondered what it might be. To me it looks like part of a horn or antler. Wonder if anyone can help me out. Thanks craig
  13. Unknown... Need help!

    I do not know where this was originally discovered however I found it while cleaning my mother's garage. It looks like it's been through a lot... Can anyone help me decifer what this might be?
  14. Horn?

    Hi, What do you think, what type of horn is it? I found it in Europe, Hungary.
  15. nj coral id

    Is this horn coral? went to our local beach here in southern new jersey today for a walk and where they dredged sand from the ocean to the beach I found this,,,,,,,,, can someone confirm and maybe tell me aprox how old it is and if this is common for the southern new jersey beaches??? thanks
  16. Horn, Toe, Tooth?

    Found along river banks southern Minnesota, USA.
  17. Just rocks?

    My boyfriend just got back from hiking and came back with a backpack filled with rocks!? He thinks they are fossils. Can anyone help identify? Thank you!!!
  18. Does anyone know what these are?

  19. Fossil tooth?

    I found this in tioga county upstate NY in a creek bed. I'm curious what it is exactly. I've always stared at the ground in hopes of finding something neat and never have I seen one like this. I believe it's a tooth or maybe piece of a horn.

  23. A few years ago, I found a fossilized something on the Beach at Cape Henlopen. It was embedded in quartz. It looked kinda like a belemnite, but the wrong material. I was told by Plax that it was much older than our cretaceous belemnites. I tucked it into a spot on the shelf and wondered about it. Since then I have seen a few posts here and there from folks in NJ finding nice little paleozoic pieces on their side of the bay as well. This summer, I made it a mission to explore the Delaware beaches and see what I could find and how far north they went. I began at the cape and worked my way north, one beach to a trip. Cape Henlopen's beach is rather lacking in pebbles this season, so not much to find, but I know they turn up! I have spotted them here and there in the intervening years. The next few trips were Bowers Beach. Oh, yeah! Some are impressions of brachiopods and crinoids are so tiny in big pebbles that is just isn't worth it to take them home and wonder where on that pitted rock I found something recognizable. Others are very distinct chunks of coral replaced with chert, some with crystal quartz in the gaps between structural elements. Each time, I came home with a couple of fistfuls of nice little pieces, mostly about 1" across. The next stop was the beach in Battery Park, in New Castle. This is not a nice bathing beach. It is on a heavily-industrialized section of the Delaware River. The beach is littered with slag, brick, glass and bits of other man-made "rock." But, the black slag definitely allows the brown chert to stand out more. Bingo! The prettiest horn coral I've found yet, plus a few other nice goodies. All told, I came home with about as much as I usually find at Bowers, but cutting my travel time from over an hour to just 20 minutes. *Insert Happy Dance Here!* The last stop was a rare little stretch of river bank in Claymont, a mile or so from the northern border. The stretch was pretty narrow and short. There were plenty of pebbles, but not much chert. Nothing distinctly fossilized. Oh, yeah, and on the way BACK, I found, facing into the woods and hidden by the vegetation, a "No Trespassing" sign. Now they tell me. Ah, well, now I know it isn't worth the trouble anyway. The Delaware Geological Survey, as far as I can find, has no public record of fossils at the beach. They note the Cretaceous at the C&D Canal, the Miocene in a farm field that got bulldozed for a highway, Pleistocene silicified wood in the fields and streams just south of the canal, and plant impressions from the canal down to the southern border. The corals and other marine impressions in the chert are Paleozoic, possibly Devonian or Silurian, but no one seems quite sure. They were part of the ancient sea bed when the Cretaceous stuff at the canal was still alive and can be found in the pebbles there, too, occasionally. I find it really neat and kind of surreal to think about all those fossils that were ancient when my ancient sea shells were still alive.
