    The Rio Puerco Valley

    The Rio Puerco Valley was my introduction to fossils...it immediately caught my attention...lit a match...became a place I am always eager to revisit...search...learn about... ...and in roaming it, have learned about myself. Many of my adventures in the Puerco are posted here, here...here and here...and here. From here on out, my excursions will be shared here. May you find happiness in your hunting. -P.
  2. Hello to everybody! I'm kinda new here, but before I start I must say I really love this forum! It has really great vibes and you instantly can tell that this is a good and friendly community! So, I am ziggycardon, I live in Belgium, close to the border of the Netherlands and when we start speaking geologically, I live on the same cretaceous sediments as where the first major Mosasaurus discoveries where done! Unfortunatly I have never been on a fossil hunt myself and everything currently in my collection was bought or given to me. But I hope to change that soon, as I am dyi

    Just trying to see what I have and how much they are worth
  4. Howdy! A few ammonites that are eluding me as to ID. Anyone with more knowledge of them, I would appreciate some confirmation or negation of my attempts! @erose @JohnJ @Uncle Siphuncle From Waco Pit Del Rio Formation. Thanks!! Possibly Tetragonites brazoensis? Or Adkinsia ? Second one Mantelliceras wacoense? Or maybe Paracycloceras? Not a great pic, but a little bit of a close up on the suture of this one:
  5. I am, admittedly, not much of a creek hunter. I prefer a road cut any day to slogging around in knee deep water and mud to find the fossils. But sometimes you gotta get out of your comfort zone! And it was WELL WORTH IT!!! My friend was kind enough to share one of his local spots - we've had some good rains in Texas recently and he thought it might be producing some more heteromorph ammonites. He has collected some amazing big and well preserved Mariellas there and I have been DYING to find a good one. All that I have found in my local creeks have been so water worn as to be practically unrec
  6. Went back to my little gold mine today and was again amazed by the variety of things found. Previously I thought I was in Eagle Ford, but it is in Woodbine, with ravine that cuts down to Grayson as was explained to me in first post from this local. Everything was dried out except bottom of ravine, from the looks of things I think a natural spring is involved. So found some more Mariella ammonites, one with part of a scallop maybe?, and a Hemiaster, another Texigryphaea with some shell, I believe a little bacculite, an Echnodus tooth?, unknown clams, a Trigonia, and crawling on hands and knees
  7. I hadn't visited one of my favorite Callovian sites in the Wutach Valley since last November, so since the temps have been moving up and above 30°C. over the last few days, I figured that the muddy slopes there were probably dry enough by now for me to have a go at it again. No worries about sunstroke either, since the site is in the shady woods. I spent about 5 hours at the exposure and managed to come up with a few good finds. Here are some photos of the extrication procedure. It's pretty slow going here, since marl

  9. I've driven by this field for years with a big ravine in the distance and decided to check it out since it wasn't fenced or posted and glad I did. The ravine was a good 30-40 yards long, probably 10ft+ at deep end and around 5ft wide, as I got closer the dirt changed to grey clay mud with little vegetation, the surface was sandy and rocky. First thing I saw was the large Echinoid, then peices of what I thought were ammonites until I found a more intact one, then I thought Turritella but didn't quite fit. Had a heck of a time trying to ID them and finally ran across Turrilites, I think that's w

    Several fossils with original shell

    This little rock is from Eagle Ford, since it was cracked I broke it open to be surprised by all the fossils in it and that I saw shiny things with color. Definitely not what I'm used to seeing! I assuming most of these have original shell, there are gastropods that are different colors, and also bivalves with different color, different sub order? Several heteromorph ammonites I think, and some kind of worm. Curious what the shiny multicolored area is, a couple unknowns, dendrite I think, and last one I'm not sure about, scaphite maybe? Appreciate any help!

  13. We went camping last weekend out at Delintment Lake in eastern Oregon. We went to check out the ammonite fossils. It was a great place! Kids loved it. Here are some of our finds. Interesting area because you could dig in one area and it was really loose compacted clay and in another area less than a mile away it was hard slate type material that really needed some work to get it to split. Naturally the slate material had the more robust ammonites.
  14. Hi all, some of you may remember a while back I took a trip to Villa de Leyva to see the Kronosaurus and have a little go at finding some fossils myself. The town is renowned for its ammonites and other fossils, and you can find them in the streets and walls all over. I've included some pictures of these 'load bearing' ammonites here and the main square. The first time around I was close, finding a tiny imprint of an ammonite in a round nodule. This got me excited but I was ultimately left disappointed. This second trip was a total departure and more successful than I could have ho
  15. This all started over a year ago. I was selected as Member of the Month and a couple of TFF members from Texas invited me down to the big state to collect. I primarily collect in my home region, the northeast, but I've taken fossil forays to New Mexico, Kentucky, and Germany and was willing to consider a trip to Texas and the opportunity to visit some classic fossil sites and collect fossils that are outside my usual focus. I began planning this about ten months ago, contacted potential fossil collecting partners and did my own research on fossil sites, geology, and the types of fossils I woul
  16. Hi all, I picked up a lot of partial ammonites and ammonite imprints on my latest fossil hunting trip. I was wondering if anyone may have an idea as to which types of ammonites I've come across. They come from the Paja formation in Colombia which is part of the Cretaceous. Thanks in advance
  17. Man was it hot today! Would you believe it? 30°C on the 9th of May! I did a lot of sweating, but even though it was somewhat exhausting after 7 hours of digging, I did have some fun too. I cleaned out this area during the first few hours. And came up with at least a few things. I then decided to move to another spot. And promptly found the best one to this point. The fossiliferous area in the hypselocylum zone which I am working consists of two ca. 20cm. thick concretionary limestone beds separated by about 20cm. of friabl

    Fossil Creek, Texas

    Finds from Buffalo Creek park on Fossil Creek in Texas. This is a very busy park and there are sometimes questionable people around. I did however meet a nice guy, looked like Gandolf, minus some teeth, who gave me my only unsquished sea urchin. How can you keep the top layers of the sea urchins from chipping off? First photo are ammonites and some pieces of ammonites. Second photo are my sea urchins, with one tiny bivalve and also some devil toenails, gryphea in a clump. Third photo gryphea. Fourth photo sea urchin. Fifth photo I don't know yet what it is, but it's pretty cool.
  19. Texas Springtime is my favorite - we haven't had much rain, but the weather is....typical Texas. 60 one day and 90 the next. But I find my tolerance for random temperatures is way better when I am out fossil hunting! So here are some finds from recent excursions. Plus a few shots along the way..... Some local Longhorns. As I head out of my neighborhood, these critters are sometimes out enjoying the Texas sunshine The fossiling started with a nice trip out with Erich Rose to a Glen Rose spot - first thing I spot is something i've never found in our Central Texas f

    Fossil Road Trip - Georgia, Texas

    Both my brother and I celebrated graduations this year - my brother graduated from college and I graduated from law school. In celebration of our graduations, we decided to take a 13-day road trip to see some of the United States after I had taken the bar exam but before I began work. Our journey ultimately took us through Atlanta, New Orleans, Houston, San Antonio, Austin, Oklahoma City, St. Louis, Dayton and Pittsburgh, before returning home. Our days were jam-packed, with us often not arriving at a hotel until 9/10pm, but along the way we did find some time to make a few quick stops to coll

    Some fossils I found in north Israel

    Hello, here are some fossils I found in northern Israel in the oren river. I found a lot of rocks that where filled with fossils and mainly ammonites. If anyone knows the species of these fossils I would be happy to know that. I know that there are a lot of real fossil experts in this forum so I figured maybe these fossils will be helpful to someone (maybe it's an unknown species or a species that was not found in this area). I added a covid mask for general size reference and I would be happy to hear anything you have to say about these fossils.
  24. Hello, I would like to propose a trade with these ammonites. Preferably ammonites from outside Europe. 1. Double, Androgynoceras maculatum, Pliensbachian, Schandelah, Germany 2. Multi, Arnioceras semicostatum, Sinemurian, Holderness, UK 3. Multi, Hecticoceras and Choffatia, Callovian, St Laon, France 4. Multi, Parkinsonia cf. subarietis, Bajocian, Sengenthal Germany 5. Pseudolioceras lythense, Toarcian, Saltwick Bay, UK 6. Stephanoceras humphriesianum, Bajocian, Caen, building of the Route de periferie, France 7 and 8 Lucky split, Da
  25. Hi everyone, now that it is a prohibitive time for fossil hunting (at least where I am!) I though it was a good opportunity for a little throwback. This summer I travelled to southern France and I had the chance to visit museums, paleontological heritage sites and, of course, collect fossils. Towards the end of August I met with a friend and we headed to an area that was quite popular among professionals and amateur collectors alike, but we didn't know any exact location. We stopped at a place that looked promising and we asked the owner of the land permission to survey and,
