FossilizedShoe posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsMeant to post this days ago, but accidentally left it unfinished. Whoops. Anyways, on Sunday I took a trip to Northbridge Park on the Ashley River. While definitely enjoyable, due to a nice breeze, a reasonable temperature, and an excellent view, based on my experience I must say that I would not recommend fossil hunting. Teeth were few and far between. However, I might try coming back after a decent storm. For those interested in an easy way to have a good experience fossil hunting in the Charleston area, I would recommend either going on a guided trip or trying the state park end of Folly, which I have heard encouraging things about.
reddesilets posted a topic in Fossil IDCan I get some help with verification and identifying these? It was an impromptu stop - my 12 year old and I were there to give some backed up traffic a chance to get flowing again. On the left is the cast of a shell. Next to that is likely a rock but but I couldn't be sure if it was or if it might be something else. The third item I was very unsure of. I *think* it may be a piece of bone, but I'm really not sure (again, may just be a rock). The last item on the right might be bone. I'm mad at myself because I had a beauty of a bone but dropped it. Ugh... Thanks for any help!
This is from my last trip a week or so ago to Northbridge Park on the Ashley River in Charleston, SC. I have been busy and unable to finish looking up those finds. This is one that truly intrigues me though... Is this something? Is it a tooth or other fossil? Or am I seeing what I hope to see in a rock? Thanks.
Today's fossil hunt with a few of the finds cataloged and posted: http://fossilforay.blogspot.com/2015/06/well-today-was-fun-fossil-hunt-for-sure.html I figured doing this via my blog rather than posting the tons of photos here would make it easier, I hope that's okay. I'm not sure of the ID on most of our finds. I'll make another blog entry with more cataloged over the next couple of days (I hope). For now, gotta jet - lots to do before we all go see Jurassic World!
