    unknown Ramanessin pieces

    Hi all, I made my first trip out to Ramanessin Brook (NJ cretaceous) today. I found several teeth, and a partial shark vert. I also found what is most likely a rock, but might have some impression in it, and a partial bone(?) with nubs and grooves. If anyone can help with either I appreciate it. I took an overall photo of each, and then close ups using a jeweler's loupe. If the closeup photos are not adequate enough I can try to take better photos. I have a decent mirror-less camera, but I don't have a macro lens for the closeups. The light piece is probably just a rock

    Need Your Help!!!

    Two weeks ago, I traveled to Central (Devonian) and SE Iowa (Mississippian) for a little fossil hunt. It was very successful and I will complete a trip report soon. In the meantime, it would thrill me to understand a few unknowns from the trip. First of all, the Mississippian, Burlington Formation: 1. and 2. 2. is a brachiopod that I could not find in the lists of brachiopods from the Burlington Formation. 3. There were many of these present in a certain layer of rock. Very circular with longitudinal striations.

    A few more Peace River Unknowns

    I missed these few fossils when trying to ID some unknowns from the Peace River a few days ago. 1. This one really intrigues me. Hopefully not just coral . 2. Very pitted. 3. I am a little unsure of these teeth. They just had a different appearance from the other teeth I could ID with confidence. I will repost a few from an earlier try for identification. 4. Bone of some kind 5. Broken tooth? Of what? A ridge down the length of the tooth visible in the first picture. Break visible in the second pic.
  4. On my way to Ohio to visit relatives, I was close enough to Paulding Ohio to take an hour or two to check out the Silica Shale piles so graciously put out by the La Farge Quarry. As always, it didn't disappoint! I do have a few fossils that I am a little unsure of. @Peat Burns Hopefully someone can help out. Mike First off, this one is HARD TO SEE. I photographed it 3 times and can't get it's subtle details to come through. I am 90% sure of bivalve. It comes to a point and the striations are along the growth lines, not the ribs. Second up is what I thin

    Four Florida Fossils To Look At

    I took a short trip to visit my son in Florida. We were to meet up with @jcbshark to do a little fishing. Unfortunately, mother nature had other ideas for us. It poured for 4 straight days, the length of my stay. I believe rain tallies were officially over 14 inches while we visited. Sooooo, what was a person to do??????? GO FOSSIL HUNTING!!!!!! I did have the opportunity to surface hunt for a few hours in a housing development near my son. Yes I was soaked with rain, but it helped to shine up the shark teeth. A picture of my finds: A closer look at a few teeth:

    Colorado Finds

    My wife and I took a four day trip to Colorado over Labor Day and we were on the move constantly, trying to take in as much scenery as possible. OF COARSE, I had to do a little collecting along the way. As I looked at various rock formations, it quickly became apparent that I was out of my comfort zone. This wasn't Minnesota Ordovician material. I do have a mix of unknowns, both mineral and fossil to present for ID but let me start with these 2 samples collected near the Ammonite Research Site in Kremmling, Co. The first item was a brownish "thing" that I threw into my backpack to
  7. April's arrival and the start of spring break was more than enough for me to warrant a 5th trip to the hometown favourite: the Conasauga Formation. This time, I had a primary objective: Find the ever illusive Agnostid Trilo. I had a feeling today was special, rendering any boredom the hour and a half long car ride brought with it negligible. When we finally arrived, I saw that we weren't alone in our search. It was only when I got down the hill that I noticed just who was already here. It was the man, the myth, the legend, the Ditch Wease
  8. I think some of you will get a laugh out of this. I certainly had a good laugh at myself. I hope I’m not the only one to occasionally pick up some mystery item only to realize it isn’t mysterious at all and have to laugh at myself. Saturday I went out fossil hunting to NSR. I drove out a mile or so down some unoccupied dirt, hayfield, farm road to get close to a particular spot on the river without having to hike there. I nearly got stuck in the mud a good hours hike to the nearest paved road, but thankfully my daddy taught me how to drive and get out of a few pinches.
  9. Hello! I've been trying to identify some fossils from Aurora, North Carolina. My sister sent them to me, now that I have started collecting fossils again (after a LONG hiatus of 45+ years). Some I think I have done correctly, but corrections most welcome. I'm not too familiar with the fossils of this area OR Era. (Pennsylvanian fossils of Pennsylvania is what I have hunted/found). I've made the clearest photos I could (I am a bit shaky with the camera sometimes). Here are my attempts (and requests for help!) A: Sea Urchin Spine B: Lemon Shark Negaprion sp C (

    Petrified wood and geode help!!

    Can anyone shed some light on these two specimens. I was given these from my technician last week. They were the possessions of her grandfather, who passed away last month. I told her TFF might be able to provide some info. Thanks for looking. Mike

    Devonian Unknowns, probably nothin

    Here are some Devonian finds from Iowa that are likely Nothing but geologic. Before they go on my junk pile, I want to see if I possibly could be wrong: 1: I have hunted in this quarry many times and have never seen these little "lines". They were frequently present in a certain pile of broken rock. First and third picture shows rocks about 6 " in diameter. Any ideas? 2: These circular specimens have a distant appearance of a crinoid stem cross section. Again, having been to this quarry many times, this structure is new to me. Usually crinoids ar

    Any ideas?

    Hopefully these pics are ok. All found by me in the peace river. Any help is great. Thanks.
