  2. ID 3 species in a Permian themed exhibit

    I don't think any of these are from the Permian, The ammonites were not around at the time, Very few trilobites were left and the one there looks like it is from the devonian maybe drotops? The crinoids I am not sure about. Not sure this is what you were asking but hope it helps.

  6. Sometimes You Have To Whack It !!

    I will soak it in water and brush it lightly with a toothbrush, if that does not work, I will soak it in vinegar for a little and brush it.

    I agree. I have similar ones from Lee Creek.
  8. ID 3 species in a Permian themed exhibit

    I just went to this traveling exhibit in a museum in a city where my brother lives that it is about the animals and life in the Permian period and I got pictures of 3 fossils, an ammonite, a trilobite and a crinoid but I don’t know what species and genus they are?
  9. Penn Dixie Coming Up

    I was happy to contribute Wow, am I ever tired this morning!!! The border crossing on the way back was MUCH longer than on the way there. I definitely chose the wrong line - the Canadian border agent seemed to hold up many cars/mini-vans, including ours. I think he was a little wary when I mentioned we had been collecting fossils, and when I showed him one of my finds as well as an article on Penn Dixie he closed his door and we had to wait. Then he asked what it was that I showed him - I said a trilobite - he asked if it was a kind of insect - I said it was an extinct animal that lived almost 400 million years ago - he closed the door again - after a few minutes he let us go. Hopefully our long wait will make it easier for other fossil-collectors crossing into Canada in the future if they happen to get that particular border agent I'll post pictures as soon as my stuff is washed up...
  10. Big teeth at Brownies Beach?

    Hello everybody. My girlfriend and I are making one last trip to Brownies tomorrow before it costs 40 dollars for us to get in (barf). But I've had some questions about it. We have gone one time before, and were unable to get past the one little point/corner, but still found over 200 teeth, which was awesome, however most of the teeth were small, tiny even. Are there any tips or places to find some bigger teeth in the area? I've heard the farther south you go, AKA past the point we couldn't get past last time, the teeth tend to get bigger. And is sifting a viable option to finding bigger teeth? I'm not looking for Meg sized teeth, more or less looking for decent sized teeth, and maybe a bigger Hemi or two any tips for the recovery of larger teeth at Brownie's Beach/Bayfront Park is appreciated! Thanks so much! -Snag

  12. Arrowhead and sharks teeth

    Welcome to the Forum. I think I can see slight vestiges of serrations on 3, so, ... great white on that one, too.
  13. One Tuff Lobster Prep!

    1 looks like a great white and 2-3 look like makos to me. Nice finds congrats
  15. Bivalve. Some type of elongate clam. Just the outline is left and maybe a little if the thin shell along one edge.
  16. Sometimes You Have To Whack It !!

    What further work would you do to this??

  18. Gainesville Mystery Tooth

    Hi Jess: You're really making me dig back into the archives for this one - like 11 years back. At the time, there was a very useful list online I used to use, something along the lines of "Fossil Sharks and Rays of the World". It had the majority of known shark species listed along with the age and where they had been found. Unfortunately, I don't think the site exists anymore.
  19. Lourinhã formation-Portugal

    This is a area very unproductive in this moment. The fantastic finds you can see in the museu was mostly found 20/30 years ago. Occasionally appear some isolated fossil but its very rare. A winter as the last don't help. It's necessary a lot of rain to expose something.... in terms of locations any beach from torres vedras to peniche might give some find.
  20. Novice question

    Still looking like like a sawfish rostral I would say.
  21. Help ID Please

    Any idea what kind of creature made them ?
  22. Is this a gastropod?

    You would likely destroy the fossil and have a broken steinkern anyway unless you took great pains to prepare it.
  23. Help please possible bone?

    End of a limb bone would be a fair bet. What animal will be tougher to guess though.
  24. Help ID please

    Son of a gun ! You mean there really is such a thing ?
