  1. Today, something really strange happened. I happen to be carrying a piece of petrified wood, when the wood slipped out of my hands and dropped and broke. When I looked at the pieces, picking them up, I found one piece that had a large crystal structure. I wasn’t sure what it was. I decided to do a test to see if it was Amber. I’m pretty sure that Amber floats when put in water, but I’m not sure. I could be wrong. To my surprise, a lot of stuff was floating in my bowl of water. After looking at the pieces of the crystal structure under magnifier, I think I discovered tha

    Ammonite Discovery

    So, a long time ago, I bought a fossil Ammonite at an antique store in Post Falls, Idaho. I posted it here, and one user said it was mostly carved. Heres a picture of when I bought it. Two days ago, I was at a school volunteering for aftercare. I was able to show the kids the fossils I had, including the mostly carved Ammonite. While showing the Ammonite fossil, I realized something. The parts that were mostly carved were in sandstone. When I got home, I was thinking. Using mathematics, I was able to determine that the rest of the Ammonite was UNDER the carv
  3. Hello Fossil Friends, Saw this in the news today so thought I’d share: ******************** World's smallest dinosaur egg fossil discovered in Japan Source Link A team of researchers said Tuesday it has discovered the world's smallest dinosaur egg fossil, measuring about 4.5 centimeters by 2 cm, in western Japan. The fossil of the egg, estimated to have weighed only about 10 grams more than 100 million years ago, was found in a stratum dating back to the Early Cretaceous period in Tamba, Hyogo Prefecture, according to the
  4. Hello Fossil Friends, You might have already known or been aware, but I came across this in the news today and thought I’d share it with you. I note that these fossils are not a recent discovery—most just had not been scientifically described, hence the recent publication. ******************** Gigantic Australian carnivorous dinosaurs discovered and studied using footprints North America had the T. rex, South America had the Giganotosaurus and Africa the Spinosaurus—now evidence shows Australia had gigantic predatory dinosaurs.

    Spinosaurus tail

    I’m not sure if anyone else has posted anything about this but just wanna know what you guys think about the new spinosaurus tail announced fairly recently?
  6. Looking to obtain either a copy of the July 2009 (Volume 15, No. 7) "Fossil News - The Journal of Avocational Paleontology" or a scan of an included 5 page article on the Marston Magna ammonites locality discovery and history. Not sure of the exact title.

  9. If someone finds a number of fossils that scientist can not ID, does the person that found them get to name them all if they turn out to be new a specie.?
  10. Hello everyone! I had already posted a short introduction on the new members subforum, but then I thought it might be nice to start a diary of our latest adventure here. I am an amateur fossil hunter and prepper from Belgium and recently have been put in charge of securing my husband's grandfather's secondary fossil collection, together with my husband and little brother in law. Or in other words; the non displayed and non prepped fossils which he collected during the sixties and seventies (although we did find some younger specimens as well). The task is a daunting one

    New Bat Wing Dinosaur

    A small, gliding predator, Ambopteryx has been discovered. Make sure to check out the short video in the link too. https://www.nationalgeographic.com/science/2019/05/ambopteryx-new-species-bat-wing-dinosaur-discovered-china/
  13. Someone has very likely already posted something similar to this, though a quick search didn't yield many results. So I thought I might give it a stab, and see if we get any bites. Also not sure if it belongs under general fossil discussion, but the admin gods will surely know... Anybody got a first discovery they would like to share? Maybe a childhood fossil, or your first significant (maybe just to you) find? Do you still have that initial specimen? And maybe a story to go with it? If you care to, please share here. Thanks.

    Missing pliosaurs?

    This started bothering me from lack of fossils for sale(and tooth prices when they are), and although this is far from anything scientific or reliable, I feel like I hear about plesiosaur fossil finds significantly more than pliosaurs finds(im not really sure how to begin searching for that kind of compiled info). Is there a reason pliosaurs seem to be so rare? As far as fossils for sale, the only thing I can think of, other than pliosaurs being just plain rare(super rare when compared to the number of plesiosaurs), is that for some reason everyone just mistakes/assumes pliosaur fossils a

    "The appearance of these sharks are largely unknown. However, author and illustrator Ray Troll mentions in his book, Sharkabet, about how paleontologist Rainer Zangerl once discovered a large shale slab containing a long, eel-like fish covered in long, spine-like denticles, only to have it dry out and crumble into dust. As such, according to Zangerl's account, Troll reconstructs Listracanthus as resembling a tremendous, fiercely-bristled frill shark." http://fossil.wikia.com/wiki/Listracanthus Oh my GOD!!!!!!! How frustrating!!!! To actually have uncovered an imprint of an ext
  16. When I got home from work today, my 4 year old grandson, who is staying with us until Friday, ran up to me and said he found a trilobite at the park today. So off in the car we went to see his discovery and low and behold, he found a trilobite, though not real. Hopefully he will enjoy fossils like me, but right now he is into his drums and electric guitar.

  20. Hey everybody. I was reading about Barnum Brown's T-Rex discovery from 1902, and I couldn't seem to find a specific location anywhere! I know that the discovery was made in southeast Montana at a Hell Creek formation, but I need a more precise area. Does anyone happen to know?
