  2. Sometimes You Have To Whack It !!

    Very nice! Cyclus are one of my favorites! If you look close, you may be able to see the gill structures on their back. Here's my favorite. Cheers, Rich
  3. Oreodont

    Looks a fun job. Good luck!
  4. What is this ammonoid

    What age? And could you post more pictures? Natalie
  5. Ammonite

    Do you know from where in France? Or the age? It does ressemble to Pavlovia from the Jura...
  6. Sometimes You Have To Whack It !!

    I soak them in pure water for about 15 minutes and then into vinegar for between 5 and 10 minutes. Afterwards, I place them back in the pure water for a while. I initial water soak is to saturate the concretion and hopefully not leave room for the vinegar to soak into the concretion. Let it work only on the outside. The last bath is to dilute any vinegar and rinse it off. Cheers, Rich
  7. Ammonite

    I just found this guy in some old boxes. I lost the ID card, but if I remember correctly, it came from France. I don’t know ammonites so I have no clue if this could be identified at all without a precise locality.
  8. I loved this whole thread! As a beginner, I find this Etobicoke Creek to be fabulous and full of interesting material. Most is not of the type I can carry away, so I often photograph it. Below is a fossil from right near the Lakeshore Rd Bridge.
  9. Mammal Bone ID from Rare Location

    Hi Osteobyte, I looked at some photos of horse acetabulum and I think you are right! I always thought it was a little thin to be a leg bone. Thanks for the ID! -Jesse
  10. What is this ammonoid

    Here’s something I found in Michigan, it’s an ammonoid of some type but I thought it was too wide to be a goniatite, I could be wrong though.
  11. Hi Everybody, I am trying to ID some fossils for my friends from the Royal Peacock Opal MIne. They have these fossils for display only at their gift shop but they are not really sure what they are. These are all miocene age fossils, Humboldt County, Nevada. I think the foot and the teeth are from some kind of small horse. I have no idea about the jaw with the teeth. Picture 1: Articulated foot bones from a horse? Picture 2-4: Jaw section from unknown mammal Picture 5-6: Bovine tooth, horse? Bison? camel? Picture 7: Bovine tooth, horse? horse? Bison? camel? Any IDs would be appreciated, Thanks, Jesse

  16. Recently I aquired this Carcharodon tooth from Sacaco, Peru whose serrate conditions seems a bit peculiar to me. I can't really decide whether or not this tooth is from a late-stage hubbelli or an early carcharias. The serrations seem to wear/taper off just short of the tip on one side and abruptly end near it on another, and some (although not all) of the serrations appears to be angled in a way, although I suspect some may be due to wear. My thoughts on the serrations keep seesawing in my head. Would this tooth better represent a late-stage hubbelli or a carcharias? Thanks for any and all answers. Lingual
  17. Oreodont

    I was recently given an Oreodont skull that someone had started but he gave up on it after breaking it into 5 pieces. One of my relatives who knows him was talking about how I’m into fossils and the guy just gives it to him so he gave it to me! So it’s my next project. Even though it’s not in the best shape I’m still excited to get it! I love prepping fossils even though I can only do it on my days off.
  18. Today
  19. 2019 aurora fossil festival

    I will be there for the first time this year! Can’t wait to meet some of you guys. Super excited!
  20. Preparation carboniferous shark teeth

    Thank you!
  21. What is this?

    Maybe an orthocone nautiloid. Wait for others to chime in.
  22. Yet Another Phytosaur Prep

  23. Heavy nondescript fossil from Oakville, Canada

    Thanks for insights colleagues. I'll see if I can conjure up some other angles and a size reference.
  24. That's the one, thanks Scott. I see there is mentioned/pictured an even older organism, Thucomyces, 2.8byo!
