  1. 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

    North Florida Fun!

    My wife and I returned from a great trip to north Florida about a week and a half ago, but I finally have time to post a trip report now that our Easter visitors (our kids) have left and headed back to their homes. Fair warning, if you are looking for some great tale of finds on the Peace River, this is not the post for you! Probably one of the few posts on the Forum from a trip to Florida that does NOT include the Peace –. This was not solely a fossil trip, but rather a sight-seeing trip with some fossils stops included, I try to include as many stops as possible but it is always a delica
  3. Today I stopped at home to grab something for work and I found a box waiting for me. It was a box that contained the winnings of the recent auction that John @Sacha put up to benefit the forum. I absolutely love everything that was included in this package. John has gotten me into a love of echinoids and Florida coral. I even have gone through my collection of Fossils and picked out all of the other echinoids that I have acquired over the years, and now I’m going to place them all into one area. The fossils that I received from John will always remain in my collection, and I was

    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

    Undescribed Leptosalenia? sp.

    From the album: Texas Echinoids, ERose

    Found in the Lower Member, Glen Rose Formation, Trinity Group (Albian) Comal County, Texas. This relatively large Leptosalenia has very straight ambulacra and a large number of interambulacral tubercles. I know of approximtely 5-6 specimens collected from three locations.
  6. Today was supposed to be a day of grinding away at my piles of homework that have been accumulating over the course of last week (hey, I was on vacation what can I say)...and I was almost successful, save until 3 pm rolled around. Getting a little stir crazy, and in desperate need of the fossil hunting fix that I missed out on over the course of my week long vacation + the week of snow we had prior, I set out to take a "small walk" to an area of a creek I hadn't scouted before. My intention was just to do a little bit of reconnaissance - I saw on a geologic map that this particular
  7. 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.
  8. Icy? Well, compared to some areas in the US or Moscow, it had only a few degrees below zero (Celsius) last Sunday. The nights had about -10°C, the days about -2°C. This period lastet from last Friday to Monday. No snow at all and very, very dry air. The last two days we had about 0°C during the night and +10°C maximum during the day. Still very dry. So without any snow and clear, but "cold" weather, I checked out a few Miocene sites around St. Josef in western Styria, Austria. I have made a detailed report about the area more then a year ago here: Rocks and fossils wer

    Echinoid in rough shape

    Hello, I found this echinoid the other day, and I was hoping to clean it up. Unfortunately, it's in bad shape. This is the only one I have of this type, so I would like to make it presentable. I found it on Jebel Hafeet, Al Ain, UAE (United Arab Emirates). The fossil appears to be covered in calcite, plus the rock there is mainly made up of limestone. I heard that the "vinegar bath" isn't such a good idea, what else can I do?
  10. Has anyone purchased Bill Thompson's addendum to his Echinoids of Texas? If so what did you think?
  11. Well, I have to say, not having a full time job due to this pandemic has been extra good for my fossil hunting! I may not be making much of a living, but I'm living it up finding fossils! Fortunately, as someone pointed out to me recently "it seems like Texas is paved in fossils". While this may not be 100% accurate....it's pretty close! Within a gas tanks drive I am lucky to have MANY MANY fossil hunting spots available to me. And when November rolls around (honestly, the nicest month in Texas- mild temps and no Cedar Fever Allergies to contend with) I try to get out as much as possible. And
  12. I have 6 weeks of sabbatical starting in Jan. I booked pre-Covid and was due to explore SE Asia. Rather than rebooking, I decided to go fossil hunting instead, and now I am having a great time planning how to explore the fossils of Florida. I live on Amelia Island, and will dedicate some time to really scouting the local area for some sites that look like they have fossil potential (based upon Google Earth and old PDFs) because it'd be really awesome to have some more local spots to hunt. In addition, I am planning a loop around Florida, from Amelia Island to: Gaines
  13. Hi there folks, I need help and advices on how to prep some echinoids that I have found on calcarenite matrix. I am new in fossil prep plus I know these kind of calcarenites are very sneaky to treat. In the picture below there is a Scutella subrotundae before and after a quick prep-test I did with a couple of nails. The problem now is to take away the sand grains very close to the shell. Which technique should I try to follow now? I am thinking to the digestion in cold acetic acid, which I know it is used to extract microfossils from limestones and calcarenites, but I do not know i
  14. Hey TFF Members! Cris and I were able to get out and do some super fun Echinoid hunting earlier this week! We were able to find some very nice specimens from the Eocene. If anyone has an ID on the big thick one I found in the video, please let me know! We got stuck in some nasty storms on this trip, but were also lucky enough to see a stunning rainbow! It was a great trip. Check out the vid if you get a chance!

    Fall fossils in TX

    Hello all, My since we just went through Hurricane Sally, my wife said I need to get out and go collecting. Who am I to argue! So I'm planning a trip to north Texas to collect. I would appreciate and help from y'all to point me in the right direction. I have been to Lake Texoma and the Jacksboro once, briefly, in the past and really had a great time there. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
  16. Central Texas has been experiencing a surprisingly cool September plus quite a bit of rain! And that equals some great fossil hunting! I have gone to a few old spots and a few new spots! All in the Cretaceous Glen Rose. I am just constantly amazed at the amount of fauna in the Glen Rose. It seems like I find something new just about every time I go out! I was happy to find a new species of echinoid - a Goniopygus sp. ( very different from the previous Goniopygus I've found) It's tiny tiny, only 5mm. And I found my first really good vertebrate material - a Pycnodont jaw with teeth and

  19. Took a little trip out to West Texas last weekend. My parents have friends who have ranches out near Balmorhea (great to have friends with ranches...everyone should have friends who have ranches!). I knew the general area was one I had wanted to go hunting for echinoids in the Boracho Formation (some very special echinoids not found in my area). I did my research on Google maps and the Texas Geology website, hoping I could pinpoint the right roadcuts! The first one we stopped at (I thought was the right formation) turned out to be a different formation, but I found some cool little brachiopo
  20. I made a trip to the Lake Texoma area yesterday, to hunt a Duck Creek outcropping on a bluff. This was one of those trips that turned into more of an adventure than I bargained for. The hike from where I had to park was a lot longer and more arduous than I anticipated (it always looks easy on a satellite image, doesn't it?), and it ended up being one of those situations where I just couldn't come back the way I went in. So, I ended up getting lost, and hiking a much further distance on the return, with a heavy backpack. I should have taken a moment to mark on gps where I parked the

  22. Boy have I been away for a good bit. Quite a lot has happened since! Hope everyone's doing all right all things considered! Seeing the calamity the world is in the throes of, I decided to head out Saturday before the zombie apocalypse truly took hold here in GA. With social distancing and whatnot in effect, the options are quite limited as far as recreational activities. Thankfully, everyone's favorite activity, finding the rock-encrusted remains of life long gone is something that can be done away from prying eyes, particularly the Tivola Limestone site in Perry GA that I visited

    Late Cretaceous marine sites in China

    Hey Would anyone know of Late Cretaceous fossil sites in China that are similar to 'typical' Late Cretaceous marine sites in Europe/North America? Like places where one can find ammonites, sea urchins, shark teeth and mosasaur fossils... Thanks for any help! Christian
  24. Hey guys hope you're well! I wanted to show you the amazing lovenia woodsii clusters I found today at Beaumaris, and ask for some advice. These are lovenia woodsii. Some still retain amazing detail, like the final pic! Do you guys have any recommendations for coating the sandy matrix the woodsii are sitting in? I would like to prevent them becoming too brittle upon drying out.
  25. Hello members of TFF I'm looking for echinoids (sea urchins/sand dollars) to increase my collection of this kind of fossils. I'm interested in all kind of echinoids but what matter for me its the state of conservation. I have for trade several types of fossils from miocene (shark teeth, bivalves, gastropods...), cretaceous (echinoids, bivalves, gastropods) and Jurassic (echinoids, brachiopods, vertebrate material...) Thanks Vieira
