Hello! Just wanted to show off some VERY nice fossils (by our standards) I found this past weekend in Etobicoke creek right around the border of Mississauga/Toronto! Me and my dad decided to get back in the groove for some fossil hunting and spent a while biking off road until we came across the mother-of-all rock deposits (by Toronto standards). I posted a couple pictures of the big/best finds below, sorry I didn't have a ruler on me for reference so Canadian currency will have to do for those not from Canada: *To make the lives of those outside of Canada slightly easier: 2$ (multi-tone) coin is 2.8cm, 1$ (loon) coin is 2.65cm and quarter (horse) coin is 2.381cm* For the very last one, we were not able to carry them home on our bikes so they were left there - maybe someone from the forums could pick it up for themselves? Let me know what you think of these finds! We were pretty proud for not having done a dig in a very long time. -Em
Monica posted a topic in General Fossil DiscussionHello everyone, especially those to whom I have sent chunks of Georgian Bay Formation (Upper Ordovician) orthoconic nautiloids! @JohnBrewer @minnbuckeye @WhodamanHD @VTinNorthAB @Kasia @cheney416 @David in Japan @thelivingdead531 @Tidgy's Dad @Ludwigia @joshuajbelanger Eric, I don't think I sent you any, but just in case... @Wrangellian @DLB - I don't think I sent you any, either, but - again - just in case... (By the way - do you need/want any more fossils for your boys?) I think I've been spelling the name of the orthoconic nautiloid incorrectly!!! I've been spelling it as Treptoceras crebiseptum BUT I've been omitting the "r" that's supposed to come after the "b" in the species name SO the correct spelling should be Treptoceras crebriseptum. I'm SO sorry for the error - I hope you can all forgive me Thanks, Monica
