  1. It's taken me a while to post this, but my boyfriend and I took another trip to Penn Dixie on the Fourth of July! For those who have been to Penn Dixie I'm sure you know it's impossible even for a total newbie to leave empty handed. I didn't get anything super amazing like some of the full trilos th at I've seen other people post, but I did get what I went in hoping to find - gastropods!!! I THOUGHT that I found 2 - the large one and the good spiral one. But when I started washing the mud off them last night I discovered two others on the other side of some chunks that we had kept for their trilo fragments! They aren't perfect, but I'm so happy because all I've wanted to find since I started going to Penn Dixie was a snail It has a little bit to do with my love for David Attenborough shows and learning that we are currently in the Golden Age of the Snail which makes me unreasonably happy. I'll try to get some more pictures tonight of everything we found to help illustrate how many fossils you can leave Penn Dixie with - even when your boyfriend is making you be more selective and says you can't keep everything! I took a picture right after I found the third gastropod (the smaller not spirally one - I know the name is in the Penn Dixie guidebook but I can't think of it right now) Realized I jumped the gun by taking a picture of the three when I found this guy! He's definitely not as great as the other spirally one, but I might try to extract him better at some point! Not even the best trilobite pieces we found, but the only ones I have pictures of at the moment!
  2. Hey everyone!! So I posted last week (sorry had the wrong link there for a minute!) - but my mom found some interesting things in our creek and it was suggested they might be nautiloid fragments! So obviously we went back to look for more. We found a ton of rocks that are similar. I think a lot of what we found might just be concretions but here are a few that seemed interesting to me and I'd love another opinion on! They all have some sort of hole/dimple which I'm not sure is something that occurs in concretions? If it helps - they were all found in the creek bed in Groveland, Livingston County, NY and a geologist friend said she believes the rock on the creek bed appears to be shale slate. I'm at work without a ruler right now, so I had to use the Mary Anning post card I have on my desk for scale haha. It is 6 inches (15.24 cm). I promise I'll get a ruler soon if I'm gonna keep asking for help!! Thanks in advance!!
  3. This may be a silly question, but how do I know if something is actually a fossil or just a weird shaped rock? Also, if anyone knows - how do these weird shaped rocks form in the slate/shale if they aren't fossils? Not looking for an ID (yet!), just trying to figure out how all the weirdly shaped rocks came to be! I went hiking with my mom in our backyard because she found what we believe to be nautiloid fragments (link to ID thread) and we wanted to see if we could get more. Well we found lots of oddly shaped rocks, but are unsure if they are actually anything. If it helps, we are in a creek in Groveland, Livingston County, New York. A geologist friend said that creek bed looks like shale slate. The only thing we pulled out that I have pictures of right now is a long wormy looking one. One picture of it in the rock and three after we got it out. I haven't been able to take any pictures with size reference sorry I don't have it with me right now, but from memory I'd estimate it's at least ~12-15 cm (5-6 inches). Thanks!
  4. Unknown Penn Dixie Find

    Here's another fossil from Penn Dixie I'm having trouble with. It's from the Devonian shale, and it can be hard to see in the photo as it blends in really well and is a bit worn. There is a trilobite in the upper part of the photo, I've circled the interesting feature in red. It's a circular shape with ribbed features radiating from the center. To be honest, I'm not entirely sure if it's actually a fossil or just an anomaly in the rock.
  5. Lake Ontario ID

    Today I went Orthoceras hunting on the shore of Lake Ontario. I found a rock that clearly has some fossil activity going on but I cannot figure it out. I am unsure if it is just a strangely configured algae fossil (just different than I normally find). P.s. please disregard my bunny pajamas lol
  6. Trilobite Identifying Help

    Can anyone tell me more about this specimen?
