  1. First time back at the beach in a month or two.... was a little foggy. I've never seen a crab on the "turtleshell" rocks before, man I wish I could drag these back and put them in the garden. Help wanted - this bugger is HUGE... if you want it, I think we need a chopper or boat to extract it. Anytime out with the family is great! Pretty sure I've seen these in someone's youtube before!!
  2. Hi! I'm pretty new to the whole fossil hunting thing and in the process of trying to gather as much information as I can I might have messaged some of y'all. I was just wondering of any spots in washington to look for crab concretions. I understand wanting to keep spots private, and infact encourage it, but I've been getting stir crazy as I wait out the winter months. I've done as much research as I can online so far and have a few spots I'm thinking of scouting but would love to hear from more veteran people confirmed spots or handy tips for finding spots while out and about!
  3. I've always been really into fossils and prehistoric stuff but I only recently starting going out and fossil hunting. On a recent trip I found 5 concretions from the lincoln creek formation in washington state. I'm pretty sure only the middle one has something in it but I'm at a complete loss at how to go about cleaning these. I dont have a air scribe and I'm completely content with just seeing some of the crab, if there is one inside any of the concretions, and would love some pointers to go about this. Also how to preserve them once they are exposed. I've seen people using some
  4. Part Two of my Post Oak Creek matrix finds. A fossil friend sent me 5 gallon bags of gravel and I have been slowing making my way through (one and a half bags done so far!) and here are some of my best finds. The previous post (Part 1) were all teeth - shark and sawfish and fish etc... This post is ALL THE OTHER STUFF. Here is a link to the first post in case you want to see the TEETH. My favorites- Crab Claws! Two sides of two claws - Size 1/4 inch More claws and maybe a fragment of carapace? Size: Claws - 1/8 inch and fragment 1 inch

    Feelin' Crabby

    Not really (the title). @Ash and I are currently staying at a lovely cabin furbished to look like an early settler's homestead while we are on holidays looking for fossilized crabs from the Cretaceous. We got here at 2:30 p.m. yesterday after a 12 hr drive from waking at 2:30 a.m. and leaving at 3:15 a.m. After settling in and having roast beef sandwhiches for a late lunch, we spent 3 hrs in the evening looking and managed to find four confirmed Torynomma quadrata crabs and brought back a few concretions to split for later. We also might have found a nautilus of sorts? Unsure of the correct t

    I Think I Found Crabs

    In all seriousness, a few days ago, I washed three more of the fossils from my fossil hunting extravaganza of which I will eventually post about. I think I see two maybe three crabs in this chunk of what I thought was coral. I am not sure what the matrix is other than a lot of coral and I am still new to prepping; actually, I haven’t really prepped other than washing the fossils. I am posting horrible pictures of which I am sorry about. So in the first picture, is that a smashed crab face? There are long pincher arms and side legs but they are not connected to this part. Do any of you see the
  7. Out of the countless New Jersey cretaceous crab claws I've seen and found this has to be one of the strangest claw partials yet. Seems to be an ornamented shell as apposed to the smooth claw textures that are typically found. Definitely a very interesting piece, anyone have any ideas on a possible species or if any ornamental crabs have found in nj cretaceous, or any other new jersey cretaceous hunters ever come across one similar? Definitely a head scratcher
  8. I was not aware but convergent evolution has created crab shaped creatures 5 separate times! https://boingboing.net/2020/10/15/animals-have-evolved-into-a-crab-like-shape-at-least-5-separate-times.html

    Crustaceans found on beach.

    Hi, I would really appreciate an ID on these crustaceans found 2019 at Miami, Mermaid And Nobby beaches on the Gold Coast, Australia. I've done some basic research and came up with Pliocene era. Thankyou so much!
  10. While I was on the crab topic I also found three nodules that I popped but didn't want to take the chance prepping due to their size. Are these small crabs worth prepping in the condition they are in?

    Crab species

    Good evening folks. I have several crab caprice that all look like the same species to me. Can anyone tell me if I'm correct and what species they are. Sorry, no information other than "some of Grandpa's rocks" .
  12. We finished our trip to California just over a week ago. We stop at Jalama Beach but found no fish. I only found these 2 fossils but do not know what they are.
  13. After big rains Idecide to prospect in some eocene outcrops of my country I begin in a career with marine deposits. A lot of differents fossils can be found like echinids, oyster, crabs, shark, gastropods
  14. I got back from my last fossil hunting trip just 3 days ago. My middle son did all the work but im the one who came home a bit beat up! I was rather tired on this trip but it was still a lot of fun. I stopped by some freinds of mine and bought some more of those agatized Aturia and then stayed with some more friends of mine and did some trading with them. With the few crab concretions we found and the ones I traded for I came home with a few more to prep this winter. Only thing I didnt like about this trip was the rain! and the traffic on I-5 passing Tacoma!!! RB
  15. Hi All I've really been enjoying getting out and about here in New Zealand and hunting for fossils and taking some video footage at the same time. I'm still a beginner and find that by posting the videos I get some good info from the more experienced people across the world. If anyone is interested, I have posted my latest video up here: 013 Beach hunt for Miocene fossils I'm on instagram as well: @mamlambo_nz and would really like to follow any other TFF users, so please add me so I can follow you

    4 month round up

    I was gonna call this a monthly round up but I just realized it's been four months, adjusting to new job has had me messed up. I've only gone to 2 locales in 4 months and I'm having withdrawals. Anyway, I stopped at a outcrop of buda formation for about 30 minutes while the family went shopping, the buda had given me 2 graptocarcinus carapaces previously so I was looking specifically for that, I found what I thought was a carapace but it turned out to be a chela with just a nub of a dactyl, unfortunately the finger got broken off somewhere in between getting it out of the ground and getting it
