  1. 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.
  3. 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

    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.
  7. 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

    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.
  10. 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
  11. 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,

    Help ID Cretaceous ammonites

    Found all these in the same place, north Irving ( Dallas County) in eroding drainage canal, lots of shale and concretions and neat little rocks you crack open with surprise inside. Is the small one Metoicoceras? Hard for me to differentiate that and Calycoceras, which the bigger one looks like to me but they wouldn't be in the same place, correct? And the little guy a Heteromorph maybe? I seem to find a lot of those. My favorite part of these is the suture mark patterns.
  13. i am going fossil hunting in Montana in June. i am wondering if there are any sites that yield good ammonite fossils in the eastern part of Montana(around Glendive, Baker etc.). if anybody could provide me with any information, that would be great
  14. The weather has been so accomodating lately, that I figured that the snow should be gone by now from the slopes of the Wutach area in southwest Germany. I'd been thinking about a particular spot in the Middle Jurassic Callovian and decided to spend some time there. Sure enough, the snow was long gone, so I could scramble down the slope to the site. There are a few other local collectors who visit this site fairly regularly, but it was obvious that no one else had been there yet so early in the season. So I first made a quick inspection tour and found a few blocks which had weathered out over t

    Cretaceous sea

    Hello all, One of the many drawings/art works of me. Black pencil and edited with pc. This artwork comes perhaps in a book that will be published in July/August 2021. The Cretaceous sea (Kreidemeer) of Europe (late late Campanian and/or early Maastrichtian, 73-69/73-68 mya). Kind regards and happy fossil hunting! Ruben
  16. I said that I would send some images of the material I found on my fall pilgrimage. But about 2 weeks later I was laid low with both COVID19 and influenza A. I just got out of the hospital yesterday after 21 days (with 8 in the ICU). But I've got a couple of questions about some material I found, including a sweet Nautiloid from the Finis shale. Stay tuned I'll be back.

    South Ram River Alberta scaphites

    Wonderful trip to the South Ram River in between camping and kayaking. While the rest of the group went to see Ram River Falls I elected to check my favourite spot for any scaphites that may have popped up since my last visit a couple years ago. Lucky day.
  18. A recent trip to the museum of El Fósil (an enormous Cronosaurus still in place!) And the Centre for Paleontological Investigations in Villa de Leyva, Colombia. They had a great selection of heteromorphic ammonites, icthyosaurs (including the only one in the world with the eye intact) giant ancient turtles and many more. I can provide more pics if you are interested
  19. Hi anyone tell me how to tell the difference between a Desmoceras and Cleoniceras I have googled it checked all my books but come up with nothing Thanks Andy
  20. Hi all, newbie here. This is my collection of marine fossils from the South Downs (West Sussex), Abbey Wood, and Lyme Regis (plus a couple of bought pieces). I hope you enjoy

    Rio Puerco #3 12/26/2020

    Awesome day in New Mexico! Two beautiful Turrilites acutus out of the Dakota Formation in Sandoval County, New Mexico
  22. I live out in west Texas and the collecting locations out here are almost exclusively Lower to Middle Cretaceous in age. Recently I have identified a particular layer in which the ammonite Oxytropidoceras (expealydocious ) can be found. Aside from the very first specimen (6.5 inches in diameter), every other individual has fallen victim to the freeze/thaw cycles over MANY years. The layer is flat-lying and found within inches of the surface. So far, the innermost whorls of the ammonites (especially the larger ones) are completely disintegrated and the rest of the specimen is highly fract
  23. Cold day in the desert but a ton of fun with some great finds! Thank you @PFOOLEY for the wisdom. These all were found in the Carlile formation in Sandoval County, New Mexico.

    Ammonites or Pareidolia: ID help

    Hello. A friend of mine was out collecting near Cibolo Creek in Texas and he thinks he found some nautiloids. I'm not sure about that identification. Can I get some opinions on if these are fossils or rocks. Thanks very much.
  25. Im not sure this is in the right place, but here goes. First I want to wish everyone a very merry Xmas, a happy holidays or what ever suits your fancy. I had ordered a very large ammonite from madagascar quite awhile ago, but being that we lost a family member I didnt have it in me to post anything. Life throws some purty big curve balls and I will never get past this one but still trying to make a good christmas. The big ammo on the bottom left is a 65 lbs Monster! Got a few others there too but have had those for quite awhile. The big Placenticeras is one my youngest son gave me. A
