    Tarrant County 11-21-20

    Here are some pictures of my latest fossil hunting trip. I have been going to post oak creek a lot for shark teeth and wanted to try something new out. I found a steep embankment on a river in Tarrant county with several partial ammonites sticking out. After climbing down the embankment I found an assortment of fossils. I am not sure of the period or the formation in Tarrant county but there was quite a variety. Picture 2 is a conglomeration of marine fossils. Picture 3 is a nice ammonite I went back and chiseled away later. I will post that picture later but it was a very nice enact one. Pict

    Scaphitid Ammonite

    From the album: C&D Canal Micro Fossils

  3. A recent trip which i found a beautiful cannon ball full of ammonites inside. It's my best one so far.
  4. Hello! Found these ammonites (?) in a rock at Lyme Regis today but not sure how (if possible) I could extract them and see if there's more in the rock? Also I'd be interested to know the minerals they are made of if anyone knows. There's also a few sparkly crystal looking bits in the rock. Thanks! Eloise (:
  5. Hi everyone, I was wondering if you could help me out with something here. I found this piece of ammonite at Ramanessin Brook (whole piece is about 6cm across). I initially thought it was some sort of internal cast of a gastropod but when I noticed the suture patterns I realized it had to be the inner whorl of an ammonite. However, I'm perplexed by the texture of this piece. Parts of it displays an almost "scaly" pattern which I've never seen before. Any ideas what could have caused this? Thanks! Some closer images of the texture:
  6. Day 2 of our exploration trip, this time we were exploring a ranch in the Pierre shale. This was a massive ranch which Walter had done a small amount of exploration years ago. The 3 teams split up again, and my group went to the farthest north of the ranch to begin. This required miles of off-road driving. Its incredible how much area some of these ranches contain! Even though we spent about an hour searching, we didnt find any fossils, although my son and I found 2 arrowheads. I was happy with those, as they were the first ones I have ever found. We moved on to another area
  7. I'm new to fossil hunting but am having fun with what I've done so far. To date, I've mostly gotten stuff from the shores of the Mississippi, so original location and period aren't possible. I want to do some day trips to find better specimins. I've found crinoid stems, a brachiopod, and some that I haven't identified yet. I really want to find some intact specimins, particularly trilobites, ammonites, and blastoids. What are locations within maybe 3 hours of the Quad Cities? If anyone wants to join, I'd be glad for the company and newbie tips. TIA
  8. Sorry for all the posts, but I'm trying to post some of the bizarre/unidentified pieces from my big brook fossil collection. Here is the best example of a fossil I've found a few of over the years. I assume it's some type of shelled cephalopod, but I have no idea what. Once again going to call @Trevor for his help, and hope I'm not being rude in doing so!
  9. So this is the first prep I've attempted with my new Dremel (with specialised tips for fossils/rocks). The ammonite is from Saltwick Bay in Yorkshire. I chose this as my first practice piece as I thought that it was going to be pretty bashed up inside so would be a good one to say 'oh well' if/when I make mistakes. Sadly I now think it could have been quite nice had I saved it for when I have more experience! Anyway, to my inexperienced touch the matrix felt very sticky, with practically none of the matrix popping off nicely. I felt like I was having to carve out the ammonite and t

    Crussoliceras ammonites ID

    I once stumbled on a group of small kimmeridgian ammos which were all later IDed as Crussoliceras spp. The genus is very rare and poorly known here. Do you have any suggestions about species? Thanks @Ludwigia
  11. Found several years ago in Big Brook, NJ. Any help IDing would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance. Hope it isn't considered rude to call people into a post this way, but going to call on @Trevor for his opinion.
  12. Hi all, I have a particular request. I want to trade for a starfish or brittlestar I can trade one of the following two fossils: Predaceous diving beetle larva Coptoclava longipoda 125.5 - 122.5 mya | early Cretaceous Yixian Formation Liutiaogou Village, Dashuangmiao Town, Ningcheng County, Nei Mongol There are several additional insects as seen in the pictures below Black ammonite Trachyceras multituberculatum 232 - 221.5 mya | late Triassic Xiaowa Formation Lower Member, upper unit Guanling,

    What's this shiny stuff?

    I've broken apart this ammonite, what is the shiny stuff, especially 20210704_183705.mp4 on the side?

    Ammonite

    From the album: Missouri Ammonites and Nautiloids

    My first Ammonite find, Gave it to a friend a year ago so I was unable to measure it properly
  15. So I decided that I would finally make a point of documenting some of these back country field excursions, and made a Youtube channel to keep the videos all in one place. Here's a a rather ordinary extraction of a placenticeras ammonite found the day before we did a little field work with some paleontologists. The GoPro is a fun addition to my kit, and makes it a lot easier to document the actual process of finding and extracting these things in the field. Anyway, I'll let the video speak for itself - enjoy! (click the image to open video link)
  16. I will trade these fossils for one well preserved European goniatite or European triassic ammonite (specimen with 5 to 8 cm preferentially) because that kind of specimen is lack in my teaching collection. Note the Anorthopygus orbicularis is not a common species and, apart the incomplete test, has an exceptional detailed preservation, rarely seen. Best regards, Ricardo Traded
  17. Hi all! You know I visit my favorite Volga river site (Ulyanovsk Oblast) more or less often, but this time I decided to give a try to another well-known Jurassic-Cretaceous site on the Volga river, located in the nearby Samara Oblast (city of Syzran). It's famous for its iridescent ammonites as well as marine reptile finds. I hoped to discover a real alternative to the Ulyanovsk site particularly as the conditions are very similar: surface collecting on river bank. Here the Ulyanovsk site is to the north, Syzran to the south. The latter is home to two distinct locations
  18. I had the opportunity to get out to my favorite area of the Fox Hills Formation last week right before the temp skyrocketed into the 100s. I returned to my favorite Timber Lake site as well as tried some new ones. The first site I tried on the way down was not an exposure of the Fox Hills at all but probably of the Cannonball Formation, at least in part. I didn't find anything at this site but it was pretty nonetheless. There's lots of exposed Fox Hills sandstone at my favorite Timber Lake site but the fossils are not as well preserved as those in th
  19. This reminds me a little of some of the Madagascan Cleoniceras ammonites, but the sutures are... unusual. Somewhat rounded at the ends. It's 86x69MM approx. I'd appreciate any input.
  20. Hello, I was wondering if this is an ammonite embedded in this bivalve?
  21. My wife found this fossil while we were digging for ammonites up by Delintment Lake in Oregon. I believe this area is from the Jurassic period. Thanks for any help. I will post other pictures of the ammonites we found. Also, maybe someone can tell me if there are ammonites under these raised round pieces that we brought home. Figured I would give it a shot at trying to uncover them.

    Ammonite identification

    Hello~ Could you tell me the binominal name for this ammonite?

    Help with Ammonite fossil from Madagascar!

    Hello, I really need some help identifying what formation my Ammonite fossil is from. Its been dated to the Albian epoch and is from the Mahajanga province, Madagascar. Unfortunately nothing about it says what formation it could be from. I've done a bit of research and the closest formation to what I'm trying to find is the Ankarafantsika Formation. The problem is that, that formation is dated to the Cenomanian. Any help would be great! Here's a picture

    Oxybeloceras sp.

    From the album: C&D Canal Micro Fossils

  25. Hey everyone! I know it’s a long shot, but I’m currently in Montana and will be for abt 1 1/2 more days, and was wondering if anyone had any ammonite sites in Montana, South and North Dakota, or Wyoming, I’d be willing to trade a spot, or take whomever it was out to Ernst quarries, or trade fossils for the site, if anyone’s interested in that, please let me know.
