  1. Fossil Hunting in Winder Ga?

    In April I am heading to Winder GA to visit my Daughter for my birthday, we will be going hunting to some of the gem mines. Anyone have a good easy to access creek for fossil and shark teeth hunting? Any suggestions would be wonderful! Thanks Deb PS. I still have issues knowing the best place to post this. what topic to use?
  2. Hello all, A quick question. Do you guys have some recommendations in regards with literature about 'Neogene fossils', that could help me with identification of the finds? All I found was this one, but I don't know the author so I'm skeptical: https://www.amazon.sg/Cenozoic-Fsils-II-Bruce-Stinchcomb/dp/0764335804 Thank you for the answers
  3. I've found five Petalodus teeth and have been spending a lot of time reading research papers on them. I got the idea of trying to get released photographs for the 16 holotypes of named species within the Paleobiological database. I got the 16 named species from a list here: http://fossilworks.org/?a=referenceInfo&reference_no=42606 Petalodus ohioensis was easy enough to find, Yale publishes some of their collection online. Unfortunately the one in their collection is only a cast. The original may be lost. This paper has a few, including ohioensis. Taxonomic validity of Petalodus ohioensis (Chondrichthyes, Petalodontidae) based on a cast of the lost holotype – K. Carpenter, W. Itano Here are the 16 I am trying to get. I've asked permission for allegheniensis and I have ohioensis. I need to see if there are holotypes for the other 14 and which collections they are stored. I would love to create a public open web page that shows all 16 (if they exist). Petalodus acuminatus 1836 (Agassiz) Petalodus allegheniensis 1856 (Leidy) Petalodus arcuatus 1870 (St. John) Petalodus curtus 1870 (Newberry and Worthen) Petalodus davisii 1889 (Woodward) Petalodus flabellula 1889 (Woodward) Petalodus grandis 1883 (Davis) Petalodus hastingsiae 1840 (Owen) Petalodus hybridus 1875 (St. John and Worthen) Petalodus jewetti 1957 (Miller) Petalodus knappi 1879 (Newberry) Petalodus linearis 1838 (Agassiz) Petalodus linguifer 1866 (Newberry and Worthen) Petalodus ohioensis 1853 (Safford) Petalodus proximus 1875 (St. John and Worthen) Petalodus sagittatus 1843 (Agassiz) I am going to continue down the road, but figured I would raise the issue here. One road block is that some of the original teeth may be described in non-english research papers. Thank you!

  5. Fossil ID

    Hello, we are new to this forum so hope we posted this in the correct place. We found the fossil in the photo below in the East Fork of the Little Miami River in Claremont county Ohio. It was just laying there complete In clay in shallow water. It is about 2 feet in length. The underside (not shown) has remnants of what appear to be feet. To help it crawl. We are not sure what it is, anything about it, or if the size of it is common or extraordinary in length. Any information you can offer would be most appreciated Thanks in advance, Linda&Tim in Cincinnati Ohio
  6. Hello I present an interesting question that I'm not to confident to answer myself and am seeking help from the more knowledgeable. Since it seems like (from what I had seen) iron concretions can at rare times preserve certain fossils or traces in one way or another such as molluscs, brachopods, and such. Due to this would it be possible for material such as turtle shell scutes or maybe even croc scutes to turn up in such concretions in one way or another? (the pics are just snipets of general info that I came across online)
  7. What is this??

    okay, so I know absolutely nothing about fossils or anything or the sort. With that said, I have had this....thing for over 10 years now and have searched high and low for answers. I've posted to many communities seeking something. What. Is. It. Or any ideas what it could be or send me in the direction to figure it out. I'm a research major and this is driving me insane not being able to find answers. I'm going to post the best picture I have of it. Please don't be hateful if you don't know or if this isn't the place to ask, just say so and I'll ask else where, I'm just basically asking anywhere I can. Thanks in advance!
  8. i can not find any information or pictures of this? I believe there was only 14 found in the world?
  9. What do we have here?

    Have had these for a bit and am wondering what they are. We have quite the rock and stone collection that has accumulated throughout the years. Same stone, both sides.
  10. Fellow fossil freaks, For over a decade, we (a small team of 4 volunteers) have been developing a Dutch-Belgian paleo-portal at fossiel.net. Some may already know us a bit. We are a completely independent and non-commercial effort, aiming at providing a knowledge base and communication platform, to the benefit of both amateur and professionals. Moreover, we specifically try to bridge the gap between amateurs and professionals. Originally only available in Dutch, we finally did the massive effort to translate the whole website to English , and we're nearly there! Last year, we also completely revamped the core system of our website, which is now completely database-driven. I believe we have a lot to offer you (and vice versa), so in the coming weeks, I will present specific parts of our knowledge base in this topic, including a fossil ID system, geo-localities (including fossil sites, musea, etc..., even associations), a glossary, articles, literature references, and so on... Stay tuned for the details, but in the mean time, you're very welcome to have a look around @ http://english.fossiel.net/ Tell us what you think! PS: we're no native speakers, so we would be very grateful for anybody pointing out language mistakes and typos.
  11. Dinosaur Tooth?

    I found this and it looks like a dinosaur tooth or something. I was wondering how to identify it, find it's value (if any) and if I can expect to find more where I found it if I keep looking. It is, by far, the coolest thing I have ever found, and will spend alot more time looking for more if I can get more information about it. Thank you and I look forward to the replies!
