  1. Past hour
  2. In the UK the stratigraphic equivalent is The Rubbish Formation.
  3. Thanks for that! @FranzBernhard I was thinking of doing exactly that but you beat me to it lol
  4. Multiple Hunts this week

    Beautiful Hemi teeth! Love the intact serrations and coloring! Nice report as well.
  5. Now, young man you must not be hasty. You must wait until Christmas day or you will be put on Santa's naughty list for next year!
  6. Fish Fossils Queensland

    From some quick research online, there apparently hasn't been a lot of research done on the smaller fish of the Toolebuc Formation. I did happen to find this PDF online. Here is a blow up of just the poster. Berrell_et_al_2016-Adelaide1.pdf By the way, your finds are quite cool! Thanks for posting them.
  7. Multiple Hunts this week

    Great finds Jack, the color on that monster hemi is great
  8. I’m going to side with Kane on this one. In the last photo, it does look like a pygidium from something in the dalmanitidae family. BTW... Congratulations on your first trilobite! I have found quite a few in my area in the “garbage formation”. Gravel drives, landscape, fill piles, etc. I myself am still waiting to find some in an actual formation. They are around here, but corals, brachiopods, and bryozoans are more abundant. Good luck in your future hunts! P.S. “Garbage Formation” is my new favorite name for finds like these!
  9. An Eocene summer

    Awesome stuff, thanks for sharing!
  10. Method to determine shark development stage from teeth

    Relevant link I am no expert, but I have yet to hear way to tell whether or not a singular tooth is at a certain stage of development. A larger sample size is necessary.
  11. Woohoo I received my box this week and recognise the adress(I think) and it feels heavy so I can’t wait to open it
  12. Today
  13. Crab fossils from Rakhine State of Myanmar

    Thanks Andy. Maybe someone in the group will actually know what genus & species is it and we will both astonished. I took my time prepping this one, but might have overdone the underside some??? It would be nice for both of us to finally have a name for it!!
  14. Crab fossils from Rakhine State of Myanmar

    Thanks! I can't tell much either but I gotta say - the details on yours is astonishing
  15. An Eocene summer

    OMG. This post made my morning. I can't wait to see more! That little lizardy jaw just tickled me pink. I am headed out in about an hour to go fossil hunting in the Aquia Formation today. This was a nice warm-up. Thanks for all of the field photos. What beautiful country!
  16. Crab fossils from Rakhine State of Myanmar

    I have one that looks very similar. I purchased it 12-15 years ago. It was listed as "new find, unidentified genus and species" from China, Tertiary period. I had forgotten about it until I saw your post. Mine looks like it has better details, so maybe it can help in the identification process. Photo below.
  17. The amount of nodules needed to find one Uropygids would be roughly 843333,3 nodules. ((33/9)*230000), (where 33 is the amount of nodules for finding 1 Uropygid, based on the amount of arachnids found) The odds of finding something like that is pretty astounding Best regards
  18. Are these wood fossils?

    The new evidence has me nearly convinced that it is not wood. It is just more consistent with sedimentary structure.
  19. To all the shark expert of the forum. Is there any method or features to look for in order to determine if a shark tooth comes from a juvenile or an adult. I know that in a species well documented or largely collected, it can be easily determined by the size of the tooth. However in the case of a not well- documented or isolated tooth, is there a feature that could hint for the development stage of the specimen? Thank you, David
  20. Repairing a broken meg tooth

    Thanks guys. Part of the motivation is that I was too cheap to buy a complete big megaladon
  21. That is an amazing specimen! If Dr.Richardson identified it as Prothelyphonus giganteous, why do you need an arachnid expert to ID it? Were other arachnid species described after Dr.Richardson worked on it? BTW I'm confused about the math. 3% of 9 arachnids is 0,27 specimens. Don
  22. By morphology, I think we can narrow this down to the cranidium and pygidium of a trilobite from the dalmanitidae family. They may or may not belong to the same individual. I'm not confident to drill down to specific genus or species though.
  23. How many women participate to that secret santa ?
  24. Repairing a broken meg tooth

    We should nickname him the dentist. He can bring a smile back to a broken
