  1. Nautilus ID

    Trying to find a definitive identification for this nautiloid? Anyone know of any science-based paper online to refer to the Ma'der region of Morocco during this period of time and the cephalopod fauna? Any info appreciated. Devonian section in the Tafilalt, Ma'der region, Anti-Atlas, Morocco. (Clymenia genus ammonoid? do they get this large and the chamber/whorls are very similar to nautiloids)
  2. Cephalopod Shell Color!

    Hello all! Recently I have been obsessed with cephalopods and realized there is a real lack of reconstructions of the color patterns on extinct nautiloids and ammonites! This led me to compile a list of known fossil color patterns on cephalopods. After a year of on and off research, I found about 90 species of cephalopods retaining official or undescribed, original patterning on their shells. These are the first 15 species on my list. The color markings are based both on descriptions and photographs of the fossil material. The shades of the markings are based on the fossils, but also inferred. I Hope you will appreciate my work!
  3. Hello all, I've seen many ammonite fossils and nautilus fossils, and I'm always wondering, how are they so smooth to touch? Is it because they have been polished after removing from rocks? Or is it depending on the species and minerals that make up the fossil? Besides, how do I remove ammonites/nautilus from rocks without damaging them? Thanks for all replies!
  4. From the album Some of my best Sheppey fossils

    This is a beautiful calcite cast of the centre of a cimomia imperialis nautilus. You can clearly see the septa and siphuncle detail.
  5. From the album Some of my best Sheppey fossils

    This is a selections of my nautilus collection from the Isle of Sheppey's London clay. The nautilus on Sheppey are often crushed or heavily pyritised but occasionally good quality 3D specimens can turn up.
  6. Is this a nautilus?

    Found this in a creek bed after we had 30 inches of rain. Is this a nautilus?
  7. I found a very nice variety of items while hunting my new favorite creek. I think the formation is Eagle Ford. I found a nice ammonite bed that I"ll start checking after a good rise. I had to leave the 50 lb + ammonite until I can get a boat or raft in there to float it out 2 miles. The old US military button was my favorite find of the day. The button is 1902 or later but still very old and makes you wonder how it ended up there? Two of the shark teeth are pretty big.
  8. Help ID... nautiloid?

    Found yesterday in dirt, directly alongside a creekbed in NNW San Antonio. I took a picture of it before I pulled it out then the subsequent photos are post cleaning. I have found many like this but this was different in that the segments were separate but still in the same place. I thought it was a nautiloid but those other pieces with it seemed odd. It's about 5 inches long and 3 1/2 inches tall. Thanks to your help in advance!
  9. you're degrading

    as usual with this publication,very well illustrated account a continuation of the ongoing effort(the results of which are mostly published in the same publication)to understand molluscan taphonomy. Grade on the Doush qualitymeter**: 10(out of ten) those of you who abhor principal component analysis and boxplots: you are hereby warned beforehand.Open at your own peril A word of caution:as with most neontological studies,it begs the question of how all of that would translate to the deeper time fossil record. It might possibly increase recognition of condensed sections and/or hardgrounds,methinks **patent pending
  10. Nautilus triadicus (Mojsisovics)

  11. Quick Denton Trip

    Couple weeks ago I was able to find a day off to go and look for some dead things...:) Denton is 5 hrs away from Houston but I wanted to go there and explore the surrounding areas, left Houston early, arrive at 11am and spent until 6pm when the sun decided it was enough for me...and then back to Houston. I arrived at midnight happy and tired. A Brown / Reddish Ammo and what I believe is a FAT Nautilus where the best finds of the day. I thought the nautilus was way bigger than the Ammo but both are exactly 8 inches in diameter, however the Nautilus has easily twice the mass. Three in situ pics are shown. I was able to work for 4-5 hrs at HGMS on the Ammo and I show how it looks now.
  12. This piece arrived by way of Copper Canyon in Chihuahua, Mexico. Its owner is inquiring if it's an authentic piece and the best way it could get appraised.
  13. Quick hunt in Frick

    I want to show you some impressions of a very quick hunt in Frick near Basel. There exist a small quarry beside the "real" quarry, where you can saerch fossils. The fossils comes from the "Arietenkalk" (Jurassic). The most common fossil is the oyster Gryphaea, but you can also find ammonites or nautiloids. Like i said before i didnt had much time so i didnt find much Some pictures of the "quarry": In the background you can see the "real" quarry. From this quarry comes the material on the small one ... A block with many Gryphaea: I only found and salvage some bivalves .... But i saw some great fossils ! I was very angry that i couldn salvage this huge (30 cm) nautilus ... the stone was too hard
  14. nautilus

    Found while collecting in New Hanover County, N.C. This nautiloid is a occasional find in this quarry.
  15. From the album Isle of Sheppey Eocene

    This is a picture of my ever growing nautilus collection from the Isle of Sheppey.
  16. Hello everyone! Sorry for again asking your help, but hereby I have some fossils I would like to identify. The reason I put them together in one topic is because I bought them all from the same shop. They have all been purchased the same day at the same location (shop in London). For most of them I do not know where they come from nor the age. Fossil #1: Fossil insect (Liaoning, China; Early Cretaceous) ---> note on back "stone fly [...]" ? Fossil #2: Fossil nautilus (Southern France???) Fossil #3: Fossil ammonite (could be Cleoniceras?) Fossil #4: Fossil sea-shell, gastropod If you want to know how much I bought them for, just ask me in the replies (£). Thank you already for your help! Max
  17. Do you own a nautilus/nautili that was found/purchased from the Isle of Sheppey in Kent, UK? If you do please can you help me to compile a bit of information. I would be extremely grateful if anyone with a Sheppey nautilus could let me know the location the specimen now resides in (Museum, County, State, Province etc) and if possible a picture of the specimen with the species name if known. Also if you have seen one in a museum please can you let me know which museum. Myself and another collector on the Island were talking about how prolific the Sheppey London clay has been over the years and this raised the question on how far spread the Sheppey fossils may be. I will start things off with my own little collection of Sheppey nautili, still at home on the island. Many thanks in advance for any information you can provide!
  18. My first time back hunting since surgery. I'm not 100 % yet but I had a good morning hunt in Tarrant County TX. It was my first time hunting a different location besides NSR so it was fun. I found a nice variety of Spiral (Mariella) Ammonites, Echinoids and Nautilus. I had to leave the huge ammonite My hammer was no match. :/
  19. Nautilus Fossil

  20. Crystallized Fossil Identification?

    Hello! Would anyone have any clue what this fossil is or if it is even a fossil? It was found on the top side of a rock in northern Tennessee, about 1/4 of a mile up a hill from a creek-bed.
  21. Isle of Sheppey nautilus external chambers

  22. Sheppey Nautilus Ids please.

    Can anyone shed some light on Ids for these 3 nautilus fossils I found 2 days ago on the Isle of Sheppey in Kent, Uk. Many thanks :-)
