  1. Another Quarry Find

    Found another cool piece at work today- is it anything special? It came out of a load of rubble from the Milton Quarry, in Milton, Ontario.
  2. I had mentioned in prior posts that I had found a large trilobite (Isotelus apparently) and I just got it back from Malcolm so I wanted to post pics. I definitely wish there was less damage but the size is very impressive to me (about 8 1/2 inches long by 6 inches wide by about 1 inch high), so I really like this guy, especially since it is the first trilobite I found (earlier this year). The first pic is how it looked when I found it - it was covered in calcite and was barely recognizable (to me, anyway) as a trilobite. While part of me wishes it WASN'T covered in calcite, the fact that it was a large white-ish rock is what allowed me to find it, and I think the calcite actually protected it somewhat from the elements. The one side of the trilobite was completely encased in limestone, and Malcolm had to 'liberate it' - I can only attach three pics with this post but I will reply to my post and try to post more pics showing the prepping process. The second pic is the finished trilobite, with the ruler to show scale. The last pic has the 'little' 4 1/2" trilobite that I posted earlier in the foreground, to show the scale / size of the larger one. I am still working on my photographic skills, so sorry for the pic quality. This was found in Ordovician limestone in the Eganville, Ontario, Canada area.
  3. Quarry Find

    Hello! Found these cool pieces while at work- they came from the Milton Quarry in Milton, Ontario, Canada. I am completely new to fossil identification, but am very interested to learn more! Can anyone tell me what these might be?
  4. Trilobite?

    Hi I just found this while fossil hunting Saturday and am wondering if it could be a piece of a Trilobite? And if it’s to hard to tell is there anyway I can prep it without breaking it to reveal what it is? Thank you!
  5. Note: This is a follow-up post to my original post of about a week ago. I found this trilobite fossil near Eganville, Ontario, Canada. When I first picked it up, I thought it was broken but then I noticed that it was just slightly rolled and the pygidium was curved downwards. I have already posted a couple of pics of this Isotelus as found, but now that I have had it prepped (thank you Malcolm), it looks even better so I thought I would share.
  6. I am posting some pics of my trip to Etobicoke, Ontario on the Georgian Bay formation, Lower Member. I only went a couple times to different localities in Etobicoke since the lockdown put a strain on my wanted public transportation service. I visited the Humber River and Mimico Creek. I only came home with 2 specimens from the Humber while I didnt take anything home from Mimico. This year's winter has been mild so that is why I believe there has not been any turn around for [good/unusual/extraordinary] material. I recall back in 2015, which had a rough and severe winter, generated more good fossils for me than this year's mild winter. I didnt have to do a lot of digging and just surface collecting just to find good specimens when the winter is rough before the following Spring and Summer. The ice didnt form thick and did not cause any strong erosion in the creeks in my opinion. These pics are from the Humber River This right below is a partial Treptoceras crebiseptum I collected along the bank. Sorry for the blurry pic, this one is a Pholadomorpha pholadoformis.
  7. Partial Trilobite Fossil Found

    Hi - this is my first post to this group. I found this partial trilobite fossil this past summer in Ordovician limestone near Eganville, Ontario, Canada and I am hoping that someone here can help me identify the trilobite species it belongs to. This piece measures 3.5 inches in length by a little over 2.5 inches wide and I believe it is the pygidium and most of the thorax (so a little more than half of the full trilobite). Also, it has a little over 1/2 inch in depth, so it is not completely crushed flat. I would have much rather found a full trilobite - and I do have a full trilobite that I found that I am having prepped, that I will post at a later date - but I am very happy with the size and condition of this sample. I broke it out of the rock in this condition - no prepping has been done to this sample. Any thoughts?
  8. My daughter found this small piece washed up on the beach. It is apprx 1/4 inch thick and has a grover through top. It was found on Beach 6 of Wasaga Beach Ontario.
  9. Hi everyone, I found this fossil in Eastern Ontario. I was wondering if anyone can identify the fossil. I don't think it's a trilobite. I'm also wondering if it can be extracted. I believe it's in limestone. Thanks!
  10. Crinoid (?) Fossil ID Needed

    Found this the other day in Eastern Ontario and I'm not quite sure what it is. I asked on reddit and someone suggested it could possibly be a crinoid holdfast, but I wanted to get a second opinion just to be sure. Ordovician, about 2.5cm in diameter.
  11. Help identifying fossils

    New fossil enthusiast here. On my first few trips I found these in the Humber River and Etobicoke Creek and would like some help identifying them. 1. I think this is a trilobite?
  12. Is this pyrite disease?

    Hi guys I recently found this nice sized Pholadomorpha pholadoformis at the Humber River in Etobicoke, Ontario. It belongs to the Georgian Bay formation and is late Ordovician in age. The specimen has pyrite in addition to the black film. Does this fossil have some sort of pyrite disease to it?
  13. So I have been looking at my collection and it baffles me whether these two specimens are the same species with just different growth forms due to their deposition environments or are they entirely different species from each other? These stromatoporoids both come from the same locality (Streetsville, Mississauga, Ontario) in the Upper Member of the Georgian Bay formation, late Ordovician. Can anyone provide me with any PDF on late Ordovician stromatoporoids so I can nail down the differences between Stromatocerium and Labechhia? On the site where I collected these, I have also found mounding round stomatoporoids ranging around 4 inches to over 1 ft in diametre. I think this must be Stromatocerium. With the stromatoporoid with the prominent mamelons I have found it encrusting Prismostylus sp. specimens on the locality (what an odd association). This stromatoporoid, from my experience with the locality, usually just grows over the size of an open hand. Is this Labechia, the one with prominent mamelons?
  14. Shrimp's collection

    Hello everyone I have a pretty small collection, so I thought why not share it since it would only take a few posts? First up, these are my only self collected fossils. From walking along the Humber river in Etobicoke, which puts them in the Georgian Bay formation I believe. I would love some more information! Sweet little orthocone is why I took this one home. The back of the rock which shows an imprint of somebody's shell. There may be some other stuff going on in the matrix here but I've got absolutely no idea. Another orthocone with siphuncle pic if it helps with identification.
  15. Hello, I am new here, but very happy to find this forum. I found this rock while digging in my garden. I am in Ontario, Canada, close to the shores of lake huron. It may be nothing, but this rock looks like it is part of a petrified bone. I would love for some insight.
  16. Hi there, I found a number of fossils in the riverbanks of the Don River in Sunnybrook Park in Toronto, Ontario Canada. Here is a google maps link to the spot where these fossils were located. It is just north of where the pin is dropped. https://goo.gl/maps/yBbyfVTwHY3SGbbM8 I've attached images of the fossils I found and I'm looking to ID them. I'm wondering if someone could also point me in the direction of some further reading about the geology in this area. Thanks very much!
  17. Hello there! I was just organizing my Hungry Hollow fossils when I noticed this odd object. It looks like a small jaw with teeth, but I know that bivalves have "teeth" along their hinge so it could be that. Does anyone out there recognize the identity of this little piece? It's from the South Pit of Hungry Hollow near Arkona, Ontario and it is from the Middle Devonian. Thanks in advance for your help! Monica
  18. Hello everyone! As in other places around the world, different regions in Ontario are beginning to loosen COVID-related restrictions, and that meant that a field trip to Hungry Hollow near Arkona, Ontario was held yesterday. Viola and I jumped at the chance to visit a site that we haven't been to in almost a year, and we braved the sun and heat to find some cool items. I didn't bring my camera to the pit because I didn't want to get it dirty/dusty, but here are some photos of my favourite finds. I'll tag @Kane and @Northern Sharks - perhaps they'd like to have a look-see at what I found. Item #1: A nice branching coral - Trachypora, I think. Item #2: A Favosites coral that's not in the best condition, but I'm thinking that it has a squashed crinoid calyx on it (maybe)? I've circled the potential calyx in red, and provided a close-up photo of it. The third photo is the back of the coral colony for those who want to see both sides of the coral. More to come...
  19. Hello once again! Upon closer examination of some items I recently collected from Etobicoke Creek in Mississauga, Ontario (Georgian Bay Formation, Upper Ordovician), I have found a couple of items I'd like your thoughts on. Item #1: Found on the same rock as a monoplacophoran (Cyrtolites ornatus), the unknown item is tucked underneath some matrix: View of the whole rock: Close-ups of the unknown item: Continued...
  20. Hi everyone! I found this piece yesterday at my new spot along Etobicoke Creek here in Mississauga, Ontario (Georgian Bay Formation, Upper Ordovician). It's a bryozoan of some sort with some crinoid stems on it, along with an imprint that I think is either a Cruziana ichnofossil or a weathered crinoid stem imprint - what do you all think? I've boxed the imprint in red. Thanks in advance! Monica Views of the imprint: View of the other side of the rock/bryozoan: Close-up of the bryozoan:
  21. Wondering what these fossils are?

    Found these fossils recently and was wondering what fossils they could be two weren't really sure even are fossils
  22. I was wondering if anyone new any spots to find some fossils near the Kawartha Lakes area? I'm in the area and wanted to try to fine some
  23. Hi everyone! The last few times I went out fossil hunting, I tried to find new exposures along Mimico Creek in Toronto. All of these trips were unsuccessful, so I thought I'd try to find a new site along Etobicoke Creek instead. Today I checked out a new location and fossils were found - hooray!!! Here are some photos of what I found: (note that all of these fossils are from the Upper Ordovician Georgian Bay Formation) First, the trilobite pieces (@piranha - please let me know if I've identified them correctly - thank you! ): Isotelus maximus: cephalon (with a nice Ambonychia radiata bivalve next to it) and a chunk of thorax (circled in red) Flexicalymene granulosa: 2 cephala (one is quite large and the other (if it is a F. granulosa cephalon - I'm not sure if it is) is small and is circled in red), 2 pygidia (circled in red), and 1 slice through a thorax (circled in red): More to come...
  24. can’t figure out what I found

    Hi I am jacob, was wondering if someone could help ID or have an idea what this could be. i found this on shore of Lake Superior tarrace Bay Area, 3 inches below surface of small-med sized round rocks( o ya if it looks like little dried blood on back cause I cut myself on broken glass while looking for it)
  25. Horse tooth?

    Our grandkids first found this by the lake, Lake Huron. Ontario, canada side. We have been told our lot had a horse trail that ran through it, possible even used for horse races. Interested if this is an ancient horse tooth? Bison is another possibility as this had been a wooded area near the lake. Thank you. We are always looking for interesting rocks and stones and were curious when we found these. I have more photos.
