  1. Yesterday (Saturday, Aug. 22nd), I went fossil hunting in Ellsworth County, Kansas again for elusive Dakota Sandstone leaves and unfortunately it's mostly a bust, just like the previous trip. Despite that, I enjoyed the scenery and found some odd rocks and few fossils from new sites. A new site produced a few small plates containing woody and plant material fragments. I decided not to keep them. Closer views... Remember that interesting sandstone from the previous trip? I regretted for not taking it home so I took another opportunity and revisited the old site to get that rock! The back of this rock is quite smooth and flat, I think it would be great to have it hang up on the wall, but I'm actually not sure how I will display it. Looking at it is like reading a 3D map! It's the only object I brought home from this trip. It's peaceful out there and the views of the Smoky Hills never gets old. ...continued on the next post.
  2. Hi all, I'm an extreme amateur looking to try my hand at fossil hunting. I live in the triangle region of North Carolina and I've been trying to do some research about what I can expect to find. I live in an undeveloped area and have lots of woods and several creeks around that I was planning to explore. Does anyone have any suggestions about what I should look for or what there is to find in this area? Also, if there are specific things I should look for, what's the best method to find them?
  3. Chert fossil tiny skull?

    Found on dirt road in upturned mud in woods of Rhinelander Wisconsin. Looks to have rooted flat upper and lower teeth. I believe if it is a fossil it is glacial washout from somewhere else. Sorry the image quality is terrible and I know it decreases identification chances but it's all I have to send. If it is a fossil skull what might it be?
  4. Back in the woods again

    Yesterday I returned to the new spot in the Callovian of the Wutach valley which I presented in one of my previous posts. This time the guys couldn't come, so I walked in alone, not to say without a little trepidation since I lost my way on the return journey last time. But thanks to google earth, a geological map of the area and a memory of at least a couple of landmarks, I managed to find my way in. Finding my way out was no problem, since I made sure to file away every twist and turn this time. My knapsack was however so heavy that I ended up depositing it after I'd just managed to lug it up the steep incline above the exposure and found my way back to the foresters road. I then walked out and drove back in with my car to pick it up, which actually isn't allowed, but... well, rules are made to be broken, right? At any rate, I remembered to take along my camera this time and made a few shots while at the exposure which I'll show here for starters. The first is a shot of the corner I was working on, the second a typical oops, broke it in two and gotta glue it back together in the workshop situation and the third shows my finds at halftime. Just imagine double the amount plus all your tools on your back and trying to clamber up about 20 meters of slippery slope. At least I could use my pickle to keep my balance. I'll post the prepared finds bit by bit here as I get them done. I'm particularly excited about the large Macrocephalites on the right.
  5. Hey everyone, So today, after my second day of exams, which is why I finished earlier, I had to take the tram home instead of the schoolbus (that I usually take). On my way to the tram station, I noticed that there was some sand on the sidewalk. I looked closer, and saw that there were quite some shells all along the sidewalk. My passion for conchology (which I also have, though it's less strong than my love of fossils) took over and I began hunting for seashells. I only found bivalves, but was still quite surprised with what I got. When I got home, I looked more closely at the shells, and realized some of them were fossils!!! Here is my (unexpected, I should say) haul: 1) Mactra plistoneerlandica (fossil and modern) 2) Cerastoderma edule (fossil) 3) Limecola balthica (fossil and modern) --> I'm really happy that I found some more fossil ones of those, because nearly all of mine were already gone in trades! 4) Donax vittatus (modern) The fossils, found in the streets of The Hague (NL), are probably from the Pleistocene period (they are identical to those that I find on the Zandmotor, which is very closeby). It's really surprising how much you can find, even when you're not looking for fossils. Sometimes you find them in the most unexpected places, and you always get a very weird feeling of surprise and happiness when you do. It's often fun to try and figure out how those fossils got there, and I know the answer to this one: --> Sand is one of the most used resources in the world, and therefore often sought after for (even if it's extremely common). It's useful to build a support for things, such as sidewalks, or to make glass, and many other things. And where is the most sand found? On the bottom of the sea. And in that sand (especially the sand of the North Sea) lie many fossils. So when that sand is pumped upon land, the fossils are brought with it. This is how the fossils came here onto the sidewalk of a street of The Hague. In fact, it's that same sand that composes the Zandmotor, which was built as a natural dam against the floods (which have a bad history with the NL) from the sand of the sea, which is why it is so rich in fossils. I hope that this little report has pleased you, and that you've learned things! Therefore remember to always keep your eyes open for fossils, even if you're in normally non-fossil places! Best regards, Max
