  1. Fossils?

    I found these last year when I was in Nova Scotia, so I took some photos of them, there from Peggy’s Cove, Nova Scotia. Are they fossils?
  2. A new paper is available online if you're interested: Mann, A., Gee, B.M., Pardo, J.D., Marjanović, D., Adams, G.R., Calthorpe, A.S., Maddin, H.C. and Anderson, J.S. (2020), Reassessment of historic ‘microsaurs’ from Joggins, Nova Scotia, reveals hidden diversity in the earliest amniote ecosystem. Pap Palaeontol. doi:10.1002/spp2.1316 The paper revises the 'microsaur' assemblage from Joggins, assigning 'Hylerpeton' intermedium to Tetrapoda indeterminate and resurrecting platyris as the epithet for the Asaphestera type species, while reclassifying Asaphestera as a synapsid and renaming the 'microsaur' remains previously placed in Asaphestera as a new genus and species, Steenerpeton silvae. In retrospect, Asaphestera platyris is the oldest synapsid from anywhere in North America or the world.
  3. Nova Scotia ichnofossils

    Another Nova Scotia footprint ("turtle")
  4. Hello all, Here are a few Diplichnites incertipies specimens that I found on a 2019 expedition in Nova Scotia. It is illegal to collect fossils in NS without a permit, however all the fossils found at this site (see large arthropluera tracks and tetrapod footprints in prior posts) have been brought to the local museums attention. Stay tuned for more! I hope you enjoy, FossilsNS
  5. Synapsid fossilized in its burrow with offspring indicates parental care by mammal ancestors. https://m.phys.org/news/2019-12-earliest-fossil-evidence-parental-behavior.html
  6. Hey everybody, here are some photos of large Diplichnites trails I found in Nova Scotia. These would have been made my a giant millipede like creature known as Arthropluera. The Nova Scotia Museum has been notified of this discovery, as with all the other fossils found at this site (see my previous post of the tetrapod tracks) as the collection of fossils is illegal in the province. These are absolutely outstanding to view in person and to actually walk next to the tracks on the surface they were once imprinted on is outstanding. Expect to see more from this site in upcoming posts, and I hope you find these fossils as fascinating as I do! ps. There are approximately 27 trails on this surface (many are quite faded by the tidal action) - FossilsNS
  7. Hello everyone, I have been spending a lot of time searching for Carboniferous fossils near my cottage in Nova Scotia. Here are a few photos from my summer "expeditions" in which I found many ichnofossils. However, this post will just be focusing on the tetrapod trackways . I would like to state that the collection of fossils in Nova Scotia is illegal, and all the fossils I found were brought to the attention of the Nova Scotia Museum of Natural History. Hope you enjoy and stay tuned for more! Note: All of these footprints have been preliminary identified as Limnopus, but I would still like to hear your opinions.

  9. Efforts are ramping up to have this region added to the Canadian geopark family. The UNESCO folks just finished their visit. Let's wish them all the success! Possible Nova Scotian United Nations geopark a hidden gem - Keenan
  10. Hi all! I've been active in the field for a bit but I've been MIA for a while, dealing with personal life. BUT I have come back online. Have some adventures I have yet to post. So if you're curious about the geology of that part of the world from the eyes of this Canadian hobbit, swing by my blog. Don't be shy and subscribe if you want to keep updated. I'll try to add some of the blog info in this forum too so that I can reach as many folks as possible so they can see the amazing stuff in my backyard. Blog URL: https://redleafz.blogspot.com Thanks!! - Keenan p.s. Little preview:
  11. We found this on a beach in Nova Scotia on the Northumberland Strait. It is totally stone like but looks very much like a bone of a large animal. Kids are so interested in what can it be? thanks and regards from Nova Scotia

  13. What is this?

    Cape Jack Beach Nova Scotia
  14. Hi all, My friends recently visited Sydney Mines, Nova Scotia. While they were there they went on a fossil hunt with a geologist who curates the local museum. They were told that they could collect the small, loose stuff, and so brought back plenty of nice fossils. They gave a couple specimens to me, and I’m just wondering about IDing them. There are a lot of Calamites fossils among what they brought back, but I’m having trouble with the rest. I live in the Ordovician and don’t have a lot of experience with Carboniferous flora except finding a few pretties in Pittsburgh. First pic (1) has what they were told is an early seed cone. Can anyone corroborate and specify species? I was looking at Lepidostrobus but the shape seems different. Second pic (2) is one of the fossils they gave me. They thought that the top left might be part of a seed cone but I think it’s Annularia. Thoughts? And are those oval-shaped leaves Pecopteris ? Alethopteris ? And just for fun, I’ll add a couple more pictures (see comments) if anyone wants to have at it. Anyways, thanks!

  16. Fossil Imprints N.S

    Found two pieces of stone this weekend.. would like to know the timeframe and what they are ... if anything other than twigs. Found in Cape Jack, Nova Scotia A Beach on St George's Bay.
  17. A team from Harvard were in luck, finding tetrapod bones that could add to the story of life. =) http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/nova-scotia/harvard-fossil-find-cape-breton-1.4311303
  18. Dinosaur Track? Nova Scotia

    ...Will post 3 more images Is this a Dinosaur footprint? Looks like Theropod maybe? Found on Nova Scotia Beach Any insight is appreciated for this amateur. Thanks in advance.
  19. Found on Cape Jack Beach Nova Scotia. I have 3 more like this. Stigmaria Root? I have one I know is an imprint.. but is this one a fossilized piece of root or an imprint? Would love any insight! Thanks in advance. I have more pictures but they are 3mb each.. Can I post more?
  20. fossilized nut at Joggins cliff?

    I found a few of these at Joggins fossil cliffs on Nova Scotia. I wonder if it's a nut from the Coal Age tree in the forest fossilized within the cliffs?
  21. Teeth?

    Hello!!!! Not sure what this is but I have had it kicking around for years (20 to be exact). It was found on a beach in Nova Scotia. It appears to be bone, is about 2 inches high by 1.5 inches across but doesn't look to be a complete segment. Any ideas?

  23. Plant Fossil

    While going through some older stuff, I came across a fossil I collected several years ago in Nova Scotia, Joggins area (I was given permission to keep it). There may not be enough detail here for an ID, but I thought I'd ask the tribe if they could zero in on what species of plant this might have been. From what I was told, it is fairly common and of little scientific value.
  24. Back out in the field

    I was back out in the field today on the hunt for more fossils. Gathered a bunch of rock to split and examine. What I did find were fragile fossils of vegetation. The picture shows what looks to be a fossilized chunk of wood. Hope to get back out there! B.A.Wagner
  25. Fossil id help

    I was back in the field this morning and was on the hunt for shale and other sedimentary rocks that may contain fossils. I found this one and cracked it open and found what looks to be a fossil. It is Kane of hard to see so I outlined the areas of interest in red. I found fossils on this field before but I just don't know what this is. Would love some help. B. A. Wagner
