FossilSniper posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsAbout a month ago, I headed out on two fossil trips to the well-known St. Leon roadcut in Indiana. I was hunting in the Liberty formation (late Ordovician) with the sole goal of finding some nice trilobites (which I definitely achieved!). Along with multiple rare trilobites, I was able to find some excellent examples of other fossils. The spoils were totally awesome, and I am itching to go back. I hope you enjoy. Best for last.
( the weird succulent plants under it are Lithops, I wanted natural light and they were in the window) Found this along the San Gabriel river near Georgetown, TX. It was in with some small chunks of shale that had broken off the main formation. Pretty sure it's a sand dollar, and I know it's probably not possible to tell exactly what kind, so what I want to know is this: does finding this mean that I should go back and look again? This was the only fossil I found in the area, but it could have been I just didn't know what to look for. And I know there are some fossils that, if you're finding them, tell you "hey, this is a good area for X, Y, and Z because they require the same conditions to show up", but I'm not sure what those fossils are. I find oysters and occasional snails upstream in the loose river rock, if that helps at all. Though, really, there's nowhere in Texas I've seen that doesn't have fossilized oysters and occasional snails. And would anyone happen to have any links to what marine fossils look like embedded in shale, so I can start dialing my eyes in?
