  2. Indiana fossil ID

    Haha! What a fun addition to my collection. Thanks, all!
  3. Beginner needing help with fossil or geode/mineral ID

    I can't see this as speleothem either.
  4. Bone Skull Identification

    I agree, Modern raccoon.
  5. Need help identifying these fossils

    Me too. The thin remnants of shell suggest rudist versus gastropod. Probably in the family Requienidae.
  6. Fossil ID Requested ****Solved****

    Awesome!!! Thank you, never found something like this, I'm stoked!
  7. Need help identifying these fossils

    The last pic is not one of the finds I made. It was off the internet.
  8. Fossil ID Requested ****Solved****

    Gastropod steinkern. Internal cast of a marine snail.
  9. There is a wide chasm in the US on correct actions for Federal, State, and local governments and also individuals. I can only relate my situation. I do not claim or support Florida's guidelines and laws as appropriate for all 320 million Americans. We have a mandatory stay_at_home order from the Florida State government. It has these exceptions: I am compulsive about social distancing. I use surgical gloves, masks, disinfectant, each and every time I go out for whatever reason and I minimize the number of times I go out. I have credit cards from my bank that work with waving it over the device rather than insert it. I disinfect the credit card after using it in the old way at the gas pump. A couple of times a week I go fossil hunting to extremely remote areas where based on experience I do not believe I will see a single person. If I happened to see a person, I would not return again to that specific location. Let me acknowledge the risks I take, because I want to understand as many as I can, and then make a choice that I can live with...I take into account that health professionals are giving up their lives tending to the victims of this virus.
  10. Fossil ID Requested ****Solved****

    Good Afternoon Y'all! Took the pup out to one of my favorite spots this morning and came across this odd ball. Never seen anything like it. It was in a part of the creek that had been washed out from all the rain yesterday. No markings on it or shell impressions. In the same area i come across mostly those bottle cap looking shells and a nice little bit of coral if that helps. Found in Austin, TX down near the pleasant valley bridge on the east side. Thanks for the help!

  14. Reconnect with Childhood fossils

    A very, very happy birthday to Tom @fossilnut and @Kane. Wishing you both a wonderful day and many more birthdays and fossils to come. And good luck with your quest, Tom.
  15. Need help identifying these fossils

    The last photo definitely shows an Exogyra type bivalve from the family Gryphaeidae, a group of oysters.
  16. New Mazon Creek Collection

    Thanks, @Mark Kmiecik @Tidgy's Dad and @deutscheben! Clamosaurus - LOL!
  17. ??? Shark tooth

    Wouldn't the relatively larger size and significant serrations rule out physolageus segundus? We have these I believe in the Cretaceous of NJ but they are typically too small to find in a pan with 1/4" screen.
  18. Need help with identifying fossil

    I can't quite make it out, but are you holding a tortoise in your profile photo? I love tortoises.
  19. Beginner needing help with fossil ID

    Internal mold of a strophomenid pedicle valve, i think.
  20. 2020 Ontario Trilobite Hunting

    I'm sure your birthday trilobite will still be there tomorrow. Happy bday! Don
  21. Fun with 3D Printing Fossils

    I got another fun 3D print I want to share. A while back I scanned this partial Prognathodon right jaw. And recently I put a bit more work into that scan and reconstructed the teeth on it. As I only have one side of the jaw, I wanted to 3D print the other side with the reconstructed teeth. And here are the results. Unpainted and painted to look close to the original fossil. And both sides together. 3D printed left jaw in the front and the real fossil in the back.
  22. Hi, my name is Tim and I'm an Oreodontoholic

    PS: My cats do exactly the same thing as yours...… They have to be right in the middle of anything I'm doing - to supervise I guess.
  23. A week ago I went out and visited a rock outcrop I’ve wanted to for some time. Our particular county was not yet on lockdown. This week, I’d probably be fined for being out and digging along the side of a highway on-ramp. Fossil related, I did find these last week in that outcrop.
  24. Encrinus liliiformis (Lamarck 1801)

    Isn't it luverly?
  25. Hi, my name is Tim and I'm an Oreodontoholic

    Definitely a nice specimen. I would have to tidy it up just a bit and display it. It's not too often you see one this small and nice!
  26. Reconnect with Childhood fossils

    @Monica@JamieLynnThank you both. All the best to you and yours for now and in the future.
  27. Reconnect with Childhood fossils

    yes, happy birthday to you both! Can't help with the fossils, but I can help with the B-day wishes!
