  1. What are these swirly things?

    Found at Abbey Wood
  2. Greetings! I spent my career as a research paleontologist with the U.S. Geological Survey (Menlo Park, California) and the California Academy of Sciences (San Francisco), specializing in Cenozoic marine mollusks of the North Pacific and Arctic oceans. My summer fieldwork for 34 years was in Alaska, Siberia and northern Canada up toward the North Pole. Several times I had the indescribable thrill of being the first collector, perhaps the first human being, to visit a remote fossil site, reached by bush plane or helicopter. I was often dropped off to spend the day alone at remote sites up to 60 miles (100 kms) away. I had a number of extreme adventures, including killing an attacking grizzly with my only bullet, fending off a pack of wolves circling me, crashing in a helicopter, escaping a landslide by jumping into a passing river raft, and near-drownings in icy rivers. Of course, it was all worth it because of the fossils! My main work was documenting Cenozoic faunal and climate changes in the Arctic. However, my most notable accomplishment was solving the age-old mystery of Bering Strait’s age, which was featured on the cover of Nature. Most satisfying was discovering an unnamed river in remotest Alaska and naming it the Spirit River. I’m happy to say that my friend Warren Allmon, Director of the Paleontological Research Institution, wrote, “This memoir is a can’t-put-down page-turner, equal parts Jack London and Marincovich’s idol Roy Chapman Andrews. It is not just a rip-roaring adventure story; it also eloquently communicates both the intellectual thrill of scientific discovery and the emotional (and spiritual) energy derived from genuine exploration in some of the most challenging — and beautiful — environments on Earth.” He and other reviewers commented on the laugh-out-loud humor in my book. My book won a Bronze Medal in the Adventure category of a national book contest, and it has become an Amazon #1 Best Seller in its category. Reviews of my memoir are on Amazon.com and Goodreads.com I hope that fossil enthusiasts here enjoy reading about my adventures and research. My web site at www.loumarincovich.com has an array of photos from my fieldwork days and a list of my larger publications. Lou
  3. Hi All! This peculiar find reminds me of a type of marine mammal fin upon first sight. Haven’t come across anything remotely like it before. -20cm long, 15cm wide -found on a beach in Haida Gwaii (close to Alaska) Thank you!
  4. File Fish Vert?

    Hey all, I found this little vertebrae at my usual location, sticking out of the mud that comprises the Rio Dell Formation, Pleistocene in age. The best I can identify it as is a Filefish Vertebrae. Doing a quick Wikipedia search, I learned that some species have been known to enter lagoons and estuaries, which is good news for me since the Rio Dell represents an ancient bay environment. Ive attaches a reference image of some file fish verts from North Carolina. (Source Here: https://www.fossilguy.com/sites/l_creek/lcrk_col_fish.htm) Id love to hear all your opinions. And thank you for all the help that you guys have given me thus far, this is one of the best communities on the internet.
  5. Good evening everyone, long time I don't show up here (my bad, my thesis is ...well...a thesis). Almost 2 weeks ago I had the pleasure to visit with a friend the "Museo Civico di Scienze Naturali Malmerendi" located in Faenza. Even if it's not the biggest nor the most famous natural history museum of Emilia Romagna I consider it one of the best I've seen so far in Italy. Most of the speciments (Pliocene / Pleistocene) were collected in the area near the city. Mammals are well represented, maybe the most peculiar is what I think is the holotype of the only aardvark specie from our country (if I'm wrong please tell me). Several fishes (in particular a large grouper in matrix) and mollusks are also displayed.
  6. Some sort of tooth?

    Found at Abbey Wood
  7. I will give you a little back ground on where I found this fossil. There is a creek that runs through some of my families land in the middle of Walton County Florida. It is not located in a place that most people look for fossils. There are only about three locations on the creek that the beds are visible and most of them are at least five feet underwater and not easily accessible. I found this on the bottom of the creek at one of these locations when I was a kid. For the longest time I thought it was some old native American artifact. I recently found out it is some type of marine jaw bone. I looked up some of the geological formations where I live, and from what I can tell the beds are part of the Alum Bluff Group which is from the Miocene period.
  8. It’s 5-7 inches big. Iguanodon toe bone is next to it.
  9. More worm-like fossils, there were several of these things in this boulder. They are mostly very small, their diameter range from 2mm to 0.02mm. Some are hollow, some are sediment and some are preserved as some sort of crystals. I can't find anything on the web that would explain what these things might be. Anyone ever come across anything like these?
  10. Is this coral? If so what kind?

    Found in Eganville, Canada. An Ordovician area.
  11. ID marine fossil

    Not sure what to make of this, I first thought that maybe it was part of a large gastropod shell but after digging it out of the sandstone boulder it was in, it looks as if that may be almost the complete specimen. Looks to be about 80% complete. Anyone have a clue as to what this might be?
  12. Marine fossil on matrix.

    The piece itself is very light.
  13. bivalve slumb with green mud

    I have found so many of these slumbs near a green horizontal green line running all across a sandstone hill cut to extract sand. The green mud is 70cm width. They vary in sizes, but brought with me this piece. are those Inoceramus bivalve?
  14. What is this shell #6?

    Can anyone help with a more specific ID on this oyster shell?
  15. What is this shell #5?

    I don’t know anything about location
  16. What is this shell #3

    No idea in anything to do with this shell
  17. What is this shell? #2

    I’m not sure of the location sorry
  18. What is this shell?

    Found in Abbey Wood, which is a famous Miocene area.
  19. I think at least one of them are marsh creepers. I found them in Abbey Wood, a famous Eocene area.
  20. ID please of marine fosill

    I would highly appreciate your opinion about this formation . Marine , Pliocene or Pleistocene age, Greece . Could be algae , bryozoa ?
  21. Unidentified spiral fossil

    Three different people have posted what I think is a very similar if not the same fossil. In my original post I said it was Mississippian. However, I did purchase it from a dealer that described where he found it. I was not there. He was elderly at the time so there could have been confusion. I think he has passed now, so no way to know Let's assume age is unknown. Here are the other postings. https://photos.app.goo.gl/BCMTpriMfuSoaCi79
  22. Granddaughters Collection

    My granddaughters collection has really took off in the new year. We have ran out of room on the table and now expanding elsewhere in the house. With the mammoth tooth we received today It had gone up a notch. She had a huge collection of petrified wood also.
  23. I have shown several of these things to a number of micro-paleontologist, paleontologist, geologist and marine biologist and no one seems to know for sure what these specimen are. They were found in a sandstone boulder with bivalves fossils, they range in size from about 3mm to about 0.20mm. I'm told that they are most likely a new foraminifera species. Anyone have a clue???
  24. What is this a slab of? (Lulworth)

    Lulworth is a late Jurassic to Mid Cretaceous area.
  25. They were found in Lyme Regis, a Jurassic area. Could anyone try and identify them? Also, does anyone have any tips on how I could make them look better?
