  1. Icy? Well, compared to some areas in the US or Moscow, it had only a few degrees below zero (Celsius) last Sunday. The nights had about -10°C, the days about -2°C. This period lastet from last Friday to Monday. No snow at all and very, very dry air. The last two days we had about 0°C during the night and +10°C maximum during the day. Still very dry. So without any snow and clear, but "cold" weather, I checked out a few Miocene sites around St. Josef in western Styria, Austria. I have made a detailed report about the area more then a year ago here: Rocks and fossils wer

    A few Fossils from recently

    Hello everyone, thanks for letting me join the site! I'm an amateur fossil hunter from Toronto who has made a few expeditions in the past months. I've found a few fossils of interest that I'd like some help identifying. Below are links to photos of the fossils in question on my iNaturalist page, along with some additional details. Thanks all in advance! The following were all found along the Don River in Toronto. 1. https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/68570190 2. https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/68573964 3. https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/685701

    New Miocene site

    Hello everyone, two weeks ago I went for a short fossil hunting trip - first a Devonian location, which I believe I have already presented, then the Silurian one - also reported before. The last place was a Miocene site that I have never visited before. It's called Smerdyna and is referred to locally as a "little grand canyon" As you can see on the map, it streches for more than 3 km - it's like a huge crack in the middle of flat land: From the ground level it looks like this:
  4. Spent about 2 hours at Whiskey Bridge today. I found that there's a decent bit of stuff directly under the bridge, but if you walk upstream, there's a lot of areas that haven't really been dug in. Plus, up that way the fossiliferous material is over my height, and you can just walk along it and look at all the layers. That's interesting, in and of itself. Not just because of the appearance, but because I tend to get to thinking about how old they are, and about how every one of those fossils is something's entire life, the cumulation of its efforts to survive. It's fascinating to picture- thes

    Ammonite 03 seg 01f.jpg

    From the album: 1925 Body & Trace Fossil Collection - Ocean

    These are the three segments of Ammonoids in the collection that are easy to ID. Because the Ammonite came in many shapes and sizes, it is hard for me to say if these are segments of the same ammonite or three separate specimens. These still have dirt on them and didn't know if I should clean them or leave them alone? Ammonite 01 has a tube that is loose, the 'tube' would be the siphuncle used in adjusting the buoyancy in ammonoids and nautiloids in ammonites it is located ventrally and is more central in nautiloids.

  22. I am not sure, where to post this, please feel free to move it to the appropriate topic. I made the schematic drawing of mollusc habitats already more then 2 years ago, now I have pepped it up with shell pics of the most abundant species. All shells are self collected and in my collection, but no scale, no names... The largest pics are the most abundant molluscs in this area, there are only about 5 of them, that are really super-abundant. There is a lot of hidden info in this pic, but is it discernible without any further explanation? Maybe you have at least some fun ! Fran
