  1. Past hour
  2. Coral or..?

    Heliolitid coral is what comes to mind. The evidence for it is rather weak though.
  3. Plant, fern?

    These with slightly larger pinules I think look more like pteridosperms, neuropteris being the example shown. The narrower fronds may be true ferns like pecopteris.
  4. Thanks for all your assistance, Doren, sorry to be a pain. But this is simply not true. The postman has a little yellow motorbike and almost never carries parcels bigger than an envelope. I get left a delivery note or, for the past year and more, the sorting office phones me direct. Thanks again, I will phone them all early tomorrow morning. And sorry to Santa too
  5. Shell ID Please

    Thank you all for the help!
  6. Shell ID Please

    I agree this seems to be correct, as there are many reports of ammonites found there.
  7. Today
  8. Coral or..?

    Found today in Split, Croatia, what can it be? Thanks
  9. Fossil gift

    Fossil earrings? That's a great idea! Why didn't I think of that! I'll have to try that to go with the necklace! Speaking of the necklace, I lost that piece of petrified wood. I think it fell off the counter and landed somewhere. Well, at least I have spare pieces! It's pretty plentiful in my collection.

  11. Plant, fern?

    A few more.
  12. Plant, fern?

    Wow, I did find some more of the pieces. Here they are.
  13. Should I re-post on the fossil ID forum?
  14. A ray tooth? I thought rays had crushing plates not true teeth?
  15. They look like Moroccan phosphate mine bits.
  16. NSR Jackpot(ish)

    Not too shabby. I know exactly what you mean. The drive from Houston is +5 hours, and I have also come back with relatively meagre finds. Location is just so heavily hunted. Sounds like you got it after a decent flood. Congrats! We might as well enjoy NSR before it becomes a lake sometime in the undisclosed future...
  17. Abridged message not showing. On the 28th I checked all the local offices and there was no post listed for me. I have checked with my neighbours. Again, they and wifey and I were here on that day, all day. No attempt at a delivery was made and no note left.
  18. rapp creek hunting

    Nice ones!
  19. My bad it was the 26th. with the attempted delivery. Looks like the regular post. Here us the abridged message:
  20. Let’s See Your BIG Fossils!

    This is my largest piece. A plate that measures roughly 14.5x14 inches. It was originally listed as Gosiutichthys parvus but thanks to some wonderful forum members who shared their knowledge I was able to determine they are actually Knightia alta. They came from Lake Gosiute in Wyoming. It's one of my favorite pieces.
  21. NSR Jackpot(ish)

    Very nice. I like it when perseverance pays dividends. Congrats.
  22. Yup, real fossils. The top one is a part of a ray tooth, the others are shark's teeth. Somebody will be along to tell you the species soon, I hope.
  23. Dinosaur Claw?

    Yeah, you win some, you lose some. If it help inspire some of the children, I can't be too bummed out about the claw.
  24. NSR Jackpot(ish)

    I finally convinced myself to head out to the North Sulphur River again. After 2 attempts of coming up empty handed I was having trouble convincing myself that it was worth the 4 hour round trip excursion. Knowing the date for damming up the river looms nearer and nearer I decided to brave the cold water. I'm glad I did. This time with some help and guidance from a friend my trip was much more eventful. Having NEVER found a Mosasaur vertebrae my trip was made just 10 minutes in when a beautiful Mosasaur vertebrae was just sitting right there on the surface. Already a massive success in my book. A little ways down the creek my friend begins to tell me how he has found 2 Mosasaur premaxes in this spot throughout the year. I replied, "Dude, I would lose my mind if I found a piece of Mosasaur jaw!" No joke, less than 1 minute later we turn a corner and I notice something barely sticking out of the shale and mud at the bottom of the creek. I pick it up, turn it over and staring back at me is a tooth socket! Needless to say, true to my word, I did indeed lose my mind! Apparently my excitement and loud noises I made scared off all the other fossils as I didn't find much else for the next several hours. Still this was by far my best and most exciting fossil hunt. Totally worth getting stuck and sucked up into knee deep mud for.
