  3. Tumidocarcinus crab prep (beginner)

    Tell them it's a whale seed & you're trying to make it grow.
  4. Tumidocarcinus crab prep (beginner)

    Hahahahaha I don't think telling people that is going to help with my reputation as the crazy neighbour
  5. Tumidocarcinus crab prep (beginner)

    But everyone knows proper hydration is an essential to health. And there's nothing worse than a sickly fossil.
  6. Bone or rock in NJ Cretaceous stream?

    There are many stones in the New Jersey Cretaceous streams whose structure suggests bone. If it isn't totally obvious that it is bone, I toss it. I do bring a number of specimens home of which I'm not sure so I can scrutinize them in better light and magnification. Most turn out to be nothing, but once in a while I'll realize I made a great find.
  7. Your avatar pic looks like a pot of Marmite.
  8. Hi guys! First things first, I've been following this forum (and this section inter alia) for a good year, I simply love the community, so I decided to join it and actively participate instead of being just an external viewer. I'm not a fossil expert, but I'm willing to learn and I'll do my best to improve. But I guess that since this is a fossil lovers community, it's fossils what you want to see. Well... I inherited from a granduncle of mine a LOT of minerals -geodes, crystals, nuggets etc- and fossils (I hope I can show you my collection over time), including ammonites -guess that guy litterally LOVED ammonites- of all shapes and sizes, dinosaur, shark and mammoth teeth, amber with insect inclusions and many many other things... including trilobites. The largest trilobite I got is this: it's a 27x17x4cm piece, not the best I've seen in my life but still pretty good IMO. No idea of where he got it, nor when, not even how much he paid for it. Still, I'm pretty sure it's a fake. But before officially confirming that my granduncle threw his money away with this, I'd like to ask you a second opinion. Thanks for your help, I'm sure he would really appreciate it (pretty sure atm he's resting in Paradise, surrounded by his beloved ammonites). (if you'd like to see more photos, just ask)
  9. Is it a fossil??

    These look like nautiloid septa, unusual preservation.
  10. Quick ID Guide on Morrison Sauropod Teeth

    Very very helpful thank you. I think Morrison formation teeth are my favourite and I’m on the lookout to get the full set at some point with just a few remaining
  11. Miocene Fish-Cuba ID

    Lazaro is a friend of mine, he has already seen pictures and wasn’t able to ID, he Is hoping to have a chance to check it out in person in the next few days.
  12. Tumidocarcinus crab prep (beginner)

    The whale is sitting in my garden with the sprinkler watering it. I'm sure the neighbours think I am bonkers! "There he is, he waters rocks you know!"
  13. DdWhat bone is this? It looks like the vertebra that attaches to the skull, which I thought was the basioccipital bone, but looking it up i see that the first vertebra is called the atlas, not basioccipital, which has me very confused? I looked a few places and haven’t found the connection between the 2(no pun intended:) Is the basioccipital bone PART of the atlas? I didn’t think there was anything between the skull and vertebrae. As far as the bone in question here, this IS the vertebra that connects directly to the skull, right??? ..whichever one It.
  14. Us naughty listers have convictions too (at least until our records are expunged).
  15. Miocene Fish-Cuba ID

    Possibly a Giant Triggerfish: Balistes vegai. ? I would try to contact this gentleman: Lazaro. W. Vinola
  16. Today
  17. Beautiful piece, congrats on the win
  18. Orthoconic Nautiloid?

    I find many crystal filled orthocone cephs every year. I find many siphuncles every year. But I have YET to find a crystalized siphuncle. Not saying it couldn't be, BUT... Mike
  19. Great find, congrats on the win
  20. Orthoconic Nautiloid?

    It would be awesome if it was a siphuncle, and Camroseras (or similarly large Orthocone) may be in the area. More research is needed on my part and it definitely gives me a starting point.
  21. Orthoconic Nautiloid?

    I thought that as well. They seem too uniform to be a burrow, but I don’t know what other trace fossil would be cylindrical. Some are definitely filled with crystals.
  22. Hey, why does my package have carapace imprints all over it?!!!
  23. @Fitch1979 Heres a pic of the back of the matrix, sorry I won't be provided the clearest of images.
  24. Hmmmm. There's a thought. Perhaps Tidgy should be given custody of the parcel.
  25. There's no saying "wifey" hasn't taken a peek!
  26. i think when I get home I’m going to talk to my wife about hiding it until Christmas. It’s the only way
  27. Mine too. Admittedly mainly because wifey has hidden it, but mine stays unopened til then.
