  1. GMR Trip

    This past weekend I went to the creek (GMR) in Greenville, NC. We leave the house around 8 am and get there at around 9:15 am. We get in the water, walking to the spot, testing spots in the bottom for a while till we make it to the spot at around 10. When we got there, our hole looks like it was dug out a whole lot. We were walking up, hoping there was still gravel and I spot and little meg laying there on the bottom. I see lots and lots of smaller teeth, causing me to think that a storm washed out all the gravel. We start digging, finding tons of teeth, and around 1 pm, we eat lunch and my friend @AshHendrick shows up to join the party. We dig for about 2 more hours until the hole keeps caving in and its pretty impossible to dig. We Walk downstream for a while and go to a new spot. The spots were okay for around 30 minutes, but then it caves in. That's when we started walking out when we come across and huggge gravel bar on the side of the river. We sit around there for around 45 - 60 minutes picking up some fossils. This is where I found some Native American pottery and some petrified wood. The pictures will tell the rest. Enjoy All the shark teeth. These pictures dont do them justice, the teeth are bigger and more plentiful in person my favorites 2.5 inch mako Nice goblin The great whites fish teeth enchodus with jaw? I think this is a giant barracuda, but it has some really worn serrations? some barracuda teeth This wierd blue thing Native American potterery Gator scale Shark-bitten bone Giant barnacle steinkern First petrified wood I've found. In real life this is read, these pics are not good Belemnites Whale ears fish vert ray scute The only coral I've found there I think this is a partial mammoth tooth
  2. Don't flip over a rock in a creek to try to ID the snake that swam under it... cause if you do 4-5 babies might swim out and one may end up inside your sandal! Looked it up later, and I think it was a banded water snake. Was pretty funny after the fact! Not so much when I was flailing around trying to get my sandal off. Please don't tell my wife! (not my image, but it looked a lot like this)
  3. On Sunday, my family and I decided to head out for a fossil excursion to spend out day.@Uncle Siphuncle pointed out a good fossil site for me to find trilobites at a road cut in St. Leon, Indiana. Thanks a ton!! Unfortunately, as it had rained for quite a while that day, we had to wait until well after noon to reassure ourselves that we would not need to fossil hunt in the rain. Luckily, this also meant we got fresh picks before the other collectors! Here is the haul from the day: (I hope to bring back more over the course of the week!) Top to bottom: (1) Random pieces of the trilobite Isotelus (sp.). (2) The largest piece of trilobite that was found that day at the site. Although the piece is large, this is just a tiny, tiny fragment of the real trilobite! It is included at the bottom of image #1. (3) The best find of the day. It is a piece of the rear-half of the trilobite Flexicalymene (sp.). I do not know the specific specie, but the most abundant trilobite found at the site is Flexicalymene meeki, so it is safe to assume that the trilobite is F. meeki. After staring at the trilobite piece for some time, I extrapolate that it is approximately ~2/5ths of the trilobite which it once was. It is indeed very small! (4) Fossilized gastropods: (5) Fragments of orthoceras. These tend to be larger! ( (6) A handful of associated crinoid stem segments. The 2.4 cm one is quite long for a piece found detached from a matrix. I like it! —————————————— Overall, I think that our trip to the site had not met its maximum potential. We thoroughly examined every foot of ground that we covered- but this was only a short strip of land roughly 20 * 60 feet. Time was not available for a longer hunt. I estimate that we covered less than 5% (!) of the total fossiliferous area available to us that day— next time, I hope to find more than just ~1/3rd of a trilobite! -FS
  4. Happy Easter

    It's probably already been thought of, but I thought it would cool to hide fossils for the kids.

  6. Manasota Key Finds

    We are in Venice, FL visiting family and it’s been such beautiful weather! The past 3 mornings, I have lugged myself and my 2 toddlers (1 and 3 years old) to the key and we have had the best time. We had a good storm a couple days ago and the tide has been pretty high with some decent size waves, so hunting has been tough, especially having to be so careful with the babies. But here are some of our finds from our trip - not too shabby for having to hunt while chasing toddlers! Was really hoping to come home with a real gem, but the kids love the sharks teeth so I’ll take it. This is about 1/2 our haul. Some of my favorites. I’m so new to this, but I feel like I’ve read half the forum over the last week or two. It’s addicting! If anyone has any idea what some of the circled items are, I’d love to hear.
  7. Places to find teeth in the lowcountry?

    I am looking for a place to hunt this weekend. Is there any suggestions you may have? I'd prefer to not snorkel, rather just wade in about a foot at the most. Thanks! -CF
  8. It might be just me and my 7 year old for spring break this year and was wondering what you all thought were the best places to hunt in the first week of April? Last year we did Texas, which was fun, but would like to go somewhere new. I believe mazon collecting starts then? That's nearby and a possibility. I figured hit some road cuts and geode digging if we stay in the wisco Illinois area. I'd love to hit up the peace river as I hear that's a good time of year, but I worry about the gators down there's. I saw a place that rents canoes and will drop you off up stream which is cool. I just worry about a 7 year old being easy prey plus the fact that she can't swim. Any thoughts on safety with that? I really would like to do fishdig in wyoming, but unfortunately they dont open until late May. Anyone else have any good recommendations for this time of year? I'm open to pay to dig or public areas. Thanks in advance.
  9. Peace River Sharks Tooth Questions

    I have a few quick questions in regards to this tooth (measures approximately 2" in overall length) which I found last week in the peace river 1. What shark does this belong to? My guess is megalodon. 2. Does this belong to a Juvenile shark, or would this have been a smaller tooth on an adult shark? Either way, taking this to the jewelers because it's my first large shark tooth find!

  14. Fluorescent Fossil Display

    From the album 2018 National Fossil Day, Delaware Style

    About 60% of fossil shells fluoresce. This was a quick set-up using a cardboard box and an ultraviolet LDE flashlight. Flashlights like this are long wave, so they don't work with nearly as many species as shortwave, but for some species it doesn't really matter which wavelength one uses. The $15 flash light was much more expendable than my shortwave light!

    Set up at Ashland Nature Center to show how fossils are extracted from loosely packed sand matrix. I decided this block probably wasn't going to have anything rare an d exciting in it, so I invited some helpers when things were quiet.
