  1. Very nicely defined footprints

    Found this rock with some nicely defined footprints. The first two pictures are of the same print - has a great impression of the ball of the foot.
  2. Found a variety of toes today

    This rock has a nice variety of prints with varying number of toes. The bottom center has two toes, the left has three. The upper right is a very distinct print but I can’t tell if there is is a fourth toe to the right of the three long ones.
  3. Petrified Wood from Triassic in Pennsylvania

    Here are 3 medium size specimens of petrified wood that I found in the Newark Basin Triassic sedimentary deposits in southeastern Pennsylvania. They show a variety of color. Quarter coin is for scale. This material is rather scarce.
  4. I found 4 nice good-size specimens of petrified wood, from the Newark Basin Triassic sedimentary deposits, in southeastern Pennsylvania. Photo shows that all pieces are a light chocolate brown color. There is a quarter coin for scale. These are from the same location where I previously found two large specimens, which I posted a few years ago. This material seems to be rather scarce.
  5. Chirotherium prints with scale

    Here are some of the various sizes of the chirotherium footprints.
  6. Some footprints with scale

    Here are some closeups with scale (inches). It looks to me like there are some two toe and some three toe prints u
  7. Some more new footprints

    The first picture looks like a different print than what I’ve found before - the toes are much wider spread than the chirotherium and there seems to be only three toes, not four. The second picture shows an interesting pattern in the rock. The third has front and rear prints.
  8. Strange footprint

    Spent most of the day dragging out garbage rocks but found this one. Can’t tell if it’s a smeared Chirotherium or some thing else. All you Lady Gaga Little Monsters, paws up!
  9. I visted Aust Cliff on the River Severn, Gloucestershire UK back in Feburary and managed to find a large block of the 'Rhaetic Bone Bed' . Lots of bone fragments, fish teeth, even a shark fin spine! But my best finds are a paddle bone and large tooth. (Still got plenty more rock pieces to break open and search for more, so a long term project...) However i would like to I.D this Ichthyosaur in particular. Does anyone know about the early ichthyosaurs from the late Triassic? Age: 208 - 201mya (Late Triassic: Rhaetian) - Aust Cliff Paddle bone - humerus? Tooth (broken off tip sadly):
  10. New type of footprint

    The rock I recovered today has a new type of footprint I haven’t seen before (first picture) as well as a couple of nice chirotherium.
  11. 7.5 foot slab of footprints

    Pulled this 7.5 foot slab out today. A lot of the prints are faint but some nice clear ones.
  12. Unknown Tooth

    Sorry for poor image quality, this photo was taken through a microscope in order to get a visible picture. its only 1.5mm/0.06in long. This stunning little tooth was found in Bristol near the seven bridge, a long with a cluster of other teeth & bone, in supposedly 210 miliion year old rock were an ocean used to be. I was hoping this one could be identified due to its uniqueness.
  13. Still finding footprints

    Over 30 big slabs recovered now. Found a nice one with three Chirotherium strides - front and rear feet.
  14. Passaic Formation NJ

    Hello all, I have seen and read about finding triassic apatopus, theropod, and ornithischian dinosaur prints/fossils in the passaic formation in NJ. I was wondering if anyone new of any locations where productive passaic is accessible? If not I am always looking for other good fossil hunting grounds in NJ (other than Navesink formation creeks and Sayreville amber, which I am quite familiar with).
  15. The Anisian (Middle Triassic) ammonite faunas of Nevada have long been known to provide the most complete sequence for this stage in the world, with many genera such as Gymnotoceras, Frechites, and Nevadites being represented in abundance at classic sites such as Fossil Hill in the Humboldt Range. Here I will illustrate three less common to rare forms that are also present in Middle Anisian strata in Nevada. Unionvillites hadleyi (Smith) Provenance: Humboldt Range, Congress Canyon near Unionville Age: Middle Anisian, Hyatti Zone, Hadleyi Subzone A well-preserved specimen showing the braided keel. Reference: Bucher, H., "Ammonoids of the Hyatti Zone and the Anisian Transgression in the Triassic Star Peak Group, Northwestern Nevada, USA" (Palaeontographica 223, pp. 137-166, Stuttgart, 1992). This keeled, tuberculate form has been reported from a few localities in the Humboldt Range. Semibeyrichites sp. Provenance: Humboldt Range, Big Canyon north of Unionville Age: Middle Anisian, Hyatti Zone, Mctaggarti Subzone Reference: Bucher (1992) above. Bucher reported two specimens from the Humboldt Range as the first occurrence of this genus in the western hemisphere. This specimen was found very close to Bucher's locality. Chiratites bituberculatus Monnet and Bucher Provenance: south of Favret Canyon, Augusta Mountains Age: Middle Anisian, Shoshonensis Zone, Mojsvari Subzone Reference: Monnet, C. and Bucher, H., New Middle and Late Anisian (Middle Triassic) ammonoid faunas from northwestern Nevada (USA): taxonomy and biochronology (Fossils and Strata, 52, 2005). Monnet and Bucher proposed this species on the basis of a single specimen from the Augusta Mountains. I have since discovered about six specimens at another nearby locality.
  16. Triassic bone

    Hi everyone , anyone know what this bone is? My guess is a pachystropheus vert. It measure 17mm long and is Rhaetian, Triassic Found in Somerset, UK. Westbury formation. Thanks.
  17. What is it? concretion? egg?

  18. Happy with my shark spine

    Hi everyone , Just thought I’d like to share this find I made recently. It’s a nice. Hybodont cf. hybodus shark spine from the Rhaetic, Westbury Formation of England. It measures about 12cm. Took about 30mins to an hour extraction and about three hours repair so far. Still haven’t fully repaired it yet. It’s like a jigsaw without the cover! Biggest one I’ve ever found!
  19. Four Triassic teeth

    Found these four, if someone can take a look. All from Bull Canyob. 1 - A preondactylus tooth. 5mm. Now, I know this is from Italy, so I'm guessing name is wrong. But is it pterosaur? 2 - Fabrosaurus. 3mm 3 - Prosauropod. 4mm 4 - Eudiomorphodon - 2mm. Another species I thought was from Italy. Many thanks
  20. Nothosaurus specialist needed

    Hi! I recently bought "so called" Nothosaurus vertebra, but seller didn't have any proof of origin of the specimen. Could you confirm that this is a Nothosaurus vertebra? It was found in triassic site in Silesia, Poland. Another question. Why this bones are do small? Could it be a juvenille reptile or example of a smaller species?
  21. Fossil footprints found in Sydney suburb are from the earliest swimming tetrapods in Australia by Phil Bell, University of New England https://phys.org/news/2020-05-fossil-footprints-sydney-suburb-earliest.html Roy M. Farman et al. Australia's earliest tetrapod swimming traces from the Hawkesbury Sandstone (Middle Triassic) of the Sydney Basin, Journal of Paleontology (2020).

  22. I picked this up a while ago from the yard of a rockhound who is now deceased, but they could not tell me anything about it at the time anyway... all they could say was it was likely collected somewhere here on Vancouver Island, which would make it either Triassic Parson Bay/Sutton or Quatsino Formation, or Pennsylvanian/Permian Mt Mark or Buttle Lake Fm. I don't think it's likely to be from any of the younger formations. These structures look suspiciously like sponges to me, but I can't say for sure. They've obviously been silicified, which makes ID difficult. Any ideas? I noticed the feature marked with a red circle while looking thru the photos. It might be indicative of ID or maybe I'm just seeing things. I've not bothered to shrink the photos, as I want people to be able to see whatever detail there is on this thing. Hopefully they will load... I'll post one at a time if I have to.
  23. Possible trackway?

    Formation: Thaynes Fm. NOT Nugget Sandstone. Age: Early to Middle Triassic I’ve got a real brain puzzler here. I believe it is a trackway given the regular spacing and exact same prints but I don’t know what would have made it. I’ve put the north arrow to point out a third partial track. What do you think?
