I Was sorting through some old rocks i had collected when i was young and somewhere i had picked up this tooth. i think it is fossilized ... or just dense... but no animals come immediately to mind. best i can guess it came from south east Kansas somewhere off of the family farm, good chance it came off of a gravel bar there. i don't know why it keeps popping in my head but i keep thinking pig but i really have no reasoning i don't even know what pig teeth look like. anybody recognize it?
I have really been itching to go out and get some crab concretions from the Lincoln Creek formation. I am not l looking for any extreme high quality specimens I just want to be able to get my hands on some concretions, so if anyone has locations that put out quantity over quality (preferably public land) please reply below or pm me. Any help is greatly appreciated!
Hi everyone, I'm a newby here from Bunbury WA hoping for a word of advice or two. I was obsessed with dinosaurs and fossils as a kid and had aspirations of becoming a palaeontologist up until my early teens, although in the end I settled for studying environmental science for a range or reasons. My love of fossils etc took a backseat for a long time but recently my son has shown an interest in it and it's been such a joy to revisit my earlier passion and share it with him. We are heading up to Shark Bay in a few weeks and I'm tempted to take him fossil hunting along the way. Two areas I'm considering visiting include Gingin and the Bringo Railway Cutting (Geraldton). Im aware of the Molecap Hill Quarry in Gingin but undestand that it's on private property. Can anyone recommend some publically accessible fossil sites in the area? Ive heard of the Bringo Railway Cutting but don't know much about it. Is it publically accessible and worth a look? Any advice/recommendations etc would be most welcome. Regards Ben
Hi fellow West Aussie fossil hunters! Tomorrow, Shakespeare and I are going fossil hunting at the Cretaceous site in Gingin, Western Australia. Anyone else from Perth is welcome to come along! The more, the merrier. Should be a great day. I'm certain one of us will find that elusive Plesiosaur tooth.
