    The pool is loaded with sand and local fossils that visitors could take home - oysters, shark teeth, and belemnites! Oh, my!

  5. Fluorescent Fossil Display

    From the album 2018 National Fossil Day, Delaware Style

    About 60% of fossil shells fluoresce. This was a quick set-up using a cardboard box and an ultraviolet LDE flashlight. Flashlights like this are long wave, so they don't work with nearly as many species as shortwave, but for some species it doesn't really matter which wavelength one uses. The $15 flash light was much more expendable than my shortwave light!

    We used Crayola Model Magic to make plant imprints. The medium really holds details well, dries quickly and doesn't make a huge mess (-:

  9. Fossil Prep Demo at Ashland Nature Center

    From the album 2018 National Fossil Day, Delaware Style

    Set up at Ashland Nature Center to show how fossils are extracted from loosely packed sand matrix. I decided this block probably wasn't going to have anything rare an d exciting in it, so I invited some helpers when things were quiet.

  11. Florida Meet Up?

    Hi all, i will I'll be in the Tampa area next Thursday October 26. I was hoping someone would be willing to meet up and go collecting. I am willing to drive a bit for a good hunt. Also, I know that the Gainesville area is famous for its shark teeth. Are there any laws or rules that I need to be aware of? I do have my Florida fossil permit for this year. i look forward to hearing from some of you!
  12. 8/6/17 Calvert Cliffs

    I took the first trip to Calvert cliffs since I was a very small child yesterday (I know I live in Maryland so I should be there more often) and although it was productive I am frustrated. A) not a single shark tooth to speak of, I think I was doing something wrong and B ) YOU CANT ACTUALLY HUNT AT THE CLIFFS!?! I knew you were not allowed to dig in the cliffs, but I thought you could at least hunt under them! The person at the front didn't mention that, just said don't dig in the cliffs, and the only warning was a small sign behind a bank that could barely be seen and four small wooden posts with orange plastic grid that was on the ground. I unknowinglyy walked a few feet in to collect fossils and was promptly yelled at and told to drop the fossils. It was one person who then left and after she left, tons of people walked over to the cliffs, one picked up the fossils I dropped! I could see (some I took pictures of) beautiful complete shells on fallen pieces of stone, beckoning to me. Now they will soon be destroyed by the waves. What is the point of Calvert cliffs without the cliffs? It makes me angry so many fossils are allowed to be destroyed, I understand why but do not agree. I'm now thinking of ways to bypass this and does riparian rights got me covered? Can I walk at mean tide levels under the cliffs legally? I just learned the fee at matoaka cabins is the same so I know where I'm going next time.... Anyway ranting aside, these are my finds, there are a ton mostly chesapecten, so I will be uploading them throughout the day. I have a paper on how to ID them but it's all confusing to me, so feel free to comment thoughts at any time. first up the sad remains of Ecphora, who instead of being collected in time, were destroyed by the waves. I don't know if it's possible to tell the species, they look most similar to gardenerae to me.
  13. If anyone would like to visit Wrens Nest near Birmingham ( in the UK) on a mutually convenient date sometime in the next two months I'm happy organise it. Wrens Nest is Silurian and an incredibly productive site, you WILL go home with LOTS of finds. The hash plates here are spectacular. You may find a trilobite or two too, at least two species can be found there to my knowledge. Common finds are crinoid bits, branchiopods, social corals, bryozoa many in great condition. These look spectacular on hash plates. Pieces of sea bed are easily found with beautiful texture and often have fossils on them. Less common are solitary corals and trilobites. Its a family friendly area even for very young ones with several beautiful walks suitable for youngsters and wheelchair users as well as more demanding walks. Partners/spouses not interested in palaeontology will, I'm sure, enjoy the area. If you're interested can you add your name as a response to this thread and pm me for my email. I'll then send emails back copying in everyone (if anyone wants to come along of course! If not I'll go on my own ) and we can work out a date. Link to to my recent trip report Cheers John

    Any UK members interested in a group trip details here Moderators, I know this is a duplicate post but I think it would gain more exposure here. Please delete if you feel necessary.
  15. Wanted to share a map of potential spots to hunt for fossils in the US. Not complete by any means but it's a start! Just planning our fossil hunting road trip this summer and though others might be doing the same Happy hunting!
