  1. Wing Bone 2.jpg

    From the album Planko NSR Collection

  2. Mosasaur vs

    How can you tell the difference from mosasaur and Plesiosaur from NSR?
  3. Sorry, had to make another topic due to pic size... Number 3 - I haven't seen this one before..
  4. Bone, bone and more bone...maybe?

    Hey all. I found these Friday at NSR. I found quite a few interesting. It was a good day. I have figured most of the others out except for these and a few others. These for now. I do want to give a shout out to a young lady who asked if everything was alright due to having a flat this morning when leaving NSR. That was nice of you and I could of been more cordial. Thank you. Ok, on to the bones... Number 1
  5. Yes, I realize that mammalian fossils in Illinois are extremely rare, however, this appears to be a fossil, based on rock being present below the layer of red. This was found near the Illinois river in a dried area.
  6. River Fossil England?

    Hello, I was walking by a river in Cheadle (Manchester England), when I found this - I thought that perhaps it is a fossilised bird egg and my son and I were very excited that we had potentially found something quite old? I would be very grateful if anyone could give more information - I did a bit of digging myself but only managed to become more confused. My 10-year-old and his mummy would be very grateful if you could share a bit of knowledge and expertise. Thank you!
  7. Black bone, fossil or modern?

    Hello, I found this chunk of bone in the river Cherwell is it modern? There's also a bit of wood next to it. Thanks
  8. Can anyone identify this object found on the Thames river bed in Barnes Thanks Bob
  9. Two days looking on the NSR and pickings were tough. A lot of folks out and about not paying attention to the stay at home order. Wait, that means me too.... Found this above Idonia. Have all others picked identified along with a nice quartz crystal and a Trigonia sp. duo. This one has me stumped. Looks like a very worn bone fragment but is the wrong color for that area from everything else I have grabbed. Decent sized thought. Might be why it was still there in a heavy traveled area. Maybe a palm tree? If by chance it is bone any idea of what species?
  10. Fossil hunting tools

    I am always interested in hearing about (and seeing photos of) tools used for fossil hunting. I have used all sorts and I currently received a new device for underwater viewing. It is called a Bathyscope.
  11. Tooth?

    Found what seems to be a tooth in the Big Sioux River just inside the border of Iowa. Hoping to figure out what it's from. It appears to have a sedimentary formed abscess on it which leads me to believe it may be older. It's about half an inch tall and roughly just as wide
  12. Hello everyone, Does anybody know what this might be? Found in a stream in the forest in the region of calvados, Normandy,France. I have never found anything like this. U cant really see the details of the thing sticking out of the spongelike matrix in the pics cause my camera is not the best. But here we go:
  13. Jaw piece with broken tooth?

    Hey everyone. Found this today while near Ladonia State Park. I originally thought it might be the piece of a jawbone with a broken tooth. Clean up and not so sure now. Any help would be appreciated. Any chance on a species if it is a piece of jawbone?

  15. Spherical Fossil

    Several of these are imbedded in the sandstone on the shore of a man made lake on the Missouri River. They are of varying size but fairly consistent shape. They are generally half-exposed as this one was. Any ideas?
  16. Need Vertebra ID'd...

    Greetings, This is a vertebra found in the same vicinity as my last post, Kansas River, South Side, just North of Desoto, Kansas. It is very "sticky" when wet finger is applied. No odor when flame tested. About 2 months ago, I found this in the Kansas River, under a submerged stump at the end of the sandbank. It was found in conjunction with another vertebra that I posted separately. The location was on the South side of the River just north of DeSoto, Kansas. As it started to dry out in the dry indoors of winter (despite the humidifier on my heating system), it began to flake apart...the surface patina that is. Measures: 4 1/4" x 3 1/4" =10.8cm x 8.2cm I cannot guess age. Any ideas? Thank you all kindly in advance.
  17. Bison Fossil?

    Greetings, About 2 months ago, I found this in the Kansas River, under a submerged stump at the end of the sandbank. The location was on the South side of the River just north of DeSoto, Kansas. I found it along with another large vertebra which I will also post separately. As it started to dry out in the dry indoors of winter (despite the humidifier on my heating system), it began to flake apart...the surface patina that is. The measurements are as follows: 11.5" (L) x 3" (W) at its widest width. I suspect it is a bison, since these are the most common. I just don't have a clue as to age. Secondly, is there a way to prevent the further flaking apart? Thank you all kindly in advance. PS: having trouble shrinking enough images to the required size limit.
  18. I took a trip yesterday (Easter Sunday) morning to a few river sites in a neighboring county. The first spot I went to is a Pliocene exposure of zone 2 Yorktown Formation. While I found the normal culprits of teeth, mako's, hemi's and a small meg; it was the unexpected find that made this trip. While I have found fragments, I have not found anywhere near a complete echinoid there. Well Easter changed that, the Echinoid Bunny left me a good egg. I found a gorgeous complete Arbacia improcera. A rare Pliocene echinoid, my first. As found: after the first cleaning: second cleaning: third and final cleaning:
  19. River Hunting - Legalities

    Has anyone had any personal experiences with river hunting and what the legal restrictions are with removing objects on public navigable waterways in Minnesota? I've heard differing things in MN regarding what part of a waterway is considered state land and what parts is navigable - high water line vs. low waterline (owned by the state). What's considered navigable and what is not. Any good resources.
  20. Maybe Mosasaur

    North Sulfur River by Ladonia Fossil ParK. Thinking it is from a Mosasaur but I am not sure. Any help is appreciated.
  21. Hi everyone! I am a long time lurker of this community, I browsed these forums endlessly on advice, pictures, and video from many members who made me feel really confident in going out and actually getting into rockhounding. Me and my fiance wanted to document our trip to the Peace River in Florida. So we did. This is our first upload to our channel, and hopefully we will be uploading more as we go on more adventures. My goal with this video was for people to be able to see what it would be like to pull up to a boat ramp and go look for sharks teeth. We found a really nice young whale or dugong vertebrae, its a beautiful peace . We have only been hunting these past couples weekends as the water level has been the lowest its been since we've start this hobby and we have been pleasantly surprised with the kindness of the people around us, but also the success we have had in the river. We found our first juvenile meg tooth on our first dig in the river near the brownville boat ramp. It was super fun and now im really hooked on this river! I have attached the video below, let me know what you think? Youtube Link!
  22. Fossil Help Please

    This has small fan-like figures throughout it. One is much bigger than the rest. Can you tell me what they are please? The back is sooo different than the front as it is smooth without anything on it at all. Thanks for your help!
  23. First time poster! Going through my collection and I have some that stump me. Any idea on this one?
  24. from Peace river, Florida. Thoughts!
  25. Florida Pleistocene Mammal Tooth Peace River

    I recently found this mammal tooth along Peace River in Florida. It is just the cap of the tooth with no root present. I'm having trouble identifying it and was hoping someone would recognize the tooth and what animal it may have come from.
