    Fossilhunters fish prep

    I am not great at fossil prepping but I thought I might keep you guys updated on how my prep is going. This one is a challenge, the matrix is so hard it broke the tip off of my xacto knife. I have been working on this for 6-7 hours.

    Help Identifying Jaw and Teeth

    Hi, As a return to the fossil forum after years without using this account, I come with another fossil that I cannot identify. It is a small jaw with teeth, which appears to be in amazing condition, that was purchased in a small rock collection in New Jersey. I have no idea of its origins. The teeth appear to be somewhat sharp, and the jaw starts a broken point and ends at a curved part that would presumably end in the center portion of the animal's jaw. From the break, you can see that the fossil is almost entirely empty. Any information is appreciated, Aiden
  5. I hit the Potomac yesterday after a long hiatus for some Paleocene sharks teeth. I also decided to include a few of my finds from the recent Stratford hall trip, which was pretty decent. I always go to Douglas point for my Paleocene teeth because it’s just a good area and I almost always come back with a complete otodus. This time, that didn’t happen, though I did find a few broketodus teeth so meh. But I did come back with some good stuff, including a monster croc tooth, and a gigantic goblin sharks tooth. I also got a fish jaw with a lot of teeth in it and some other nice stuff, in addition
  6. Yesterday my youngest son Coleton came over to help me get ready for a fossil fish trip to Wyoming. That didn't take long so he decided to do some cleanup and orginizing in my garage, (small one). He was running into stuff I had long forgotten. He found not one but two Keichousaurs, one really big echinoid from Morocco, 2 slabs of crinoids from china, one needs prep, a bunch of rather nice fossil leafs, a box with about 300 small ammonits from Morocco and some other stuff that escapes the mind. One thing he also found was a box marked, 'A-Grade Fish'. Once I took a gander at what was ins

    Devonian bone bit - fish tooth?

    This little bone chip is from the Dundee Limestone (Middle Devonian) of Ohio. I find a lot of bone fragments in these rocks, but this one seems different. In particular, along one edge there look like there might be serrations, so maybe a tooth fragment? It measures approximately 1cm at the largest dimension. Thanks for any input.
  8. I bought some unprepared fossil fish and was wondering how I could display them. Also I am needing some suggestions on what to use to harden the fish and matrix around it.

  10. Hello everyone! I was out at one of my Triassic track areas in New Jersey and came up with something non track-related I found interesting. We have all kinds of ripple marks, plants, etc. so I'm really not sure what this is.. can anyone help? Thanks!
  11. Over the past year, I've become fascinated with the often bizarre fish and sharks of the Pennsylvanian. Fortunately, my home state of Illinois is a great place to hunt for such fossils. I've shared several of these in other posts before, but wanted to put everything together in one thread. Probably won't have much to post for a few months after this, but once summer rolls around, I should hopefully have plenty of new finds to share. I would say there are three major settings in which you can find fish fossils in Illinois: Mazon Creek, black shales, and limestone. I have not had luc

    Tiny Enchodus Skull?

    My Mom (being the totally awesome Mom that she is) took me on a fossil hunting trip when I was thirteen (way back in 2003) out in the Smokey Hill Chalk of Kansas with a group of students. We got to dig on a private ranch and I found this specimen splitting a layer of the chalk. I learned really quickly to follow an older gentleman that was one of the organizers of the trip and he'd tell me about the layers we were digging in and of past finds which I found very interesting. When he found a string of fish vertebra sticking out of the chalk I asked if I could dig into the hill beside him. He sai

    A Very Tiny Mystery

    Hello wonderful fossil-people! If you and you're gang enjoy solving a groovy mystery, I have a post for you! This rock was found in an area of Northern Arizona that is very well know for producing lots and lots of bryozoan, brachiopod, and crinoid fossils, as well as crystals and geodes. The bit of rock in question was found in the side of what appears to be a broken geode. There is a triangular fragment of stone that does not match the material surrounding it. There is also a white discoloration encompassing the triangle that I've highlighted in green on one of the photos below. The colo

    Shark Teeth and Misc.

    Figured I might sift through some shark teeth and misc. aquatic creature fossils I have stored in a couple boxes and post them here and perhaps learn a bit more about them from more knowledgeable members. These aren't arranged in any order, unfortunately, as I really don't know much about sharks and am still learning, so if anything stands out, please let me know! I must also apologize for the poor photo quality-I don't have any fancy set ups and this is just a quick perusal of what I have and throw it up here on the forum kinda night, haha. Scale is in mm/cm; I have listed the names and count

    NSR Fish Jaw Bone?

    Hey everyone, Found this yesterday on the NSR. That would be Texas, Ozan formation. I think it is a fish jawbone but I am no where near and expert. Is it a jaw bone. If so, any idea of species. If not, what is it? Thanks for your help.

    Is this a fish coprolite?

    I bought this fish not to long ago and didn't really know what this thing next to the fish was. It was today that I thought maybe this is a fish coprolite. I would appreciate any help you can give me.
  20. Well, I’m finally getting to dig into my truckload of fossils from my Wyoming trip with @RJB so it’s my turn to open up a prep thread. I spent a couple hours today poking around to find the perfect fish to start with. The 18” layer never disappoints. This good sized Diplomystus has 2 Knightia on top of it. I’m going to try to save both but I’m concerned that the right hand one is covering most of the Diplo’s skull. If that’s the case, the little guy will have to go! This is after about 90 minutes of scribe work.

    Devonian Fish Scales New York?

    I found this odd piece in a grey shale layer in a place with devonian age matrix and fossils from new york with various layers from flakier layers compact with fossils to harder layers like this gray shale layer that this one thats not as compact with fossils as the other ones. I am unaware of devonian fish remains from new york and I usually do not notice odd minerals in the grey shale layer so this this piece baffles me, these small shiny "scales" sort of reminds me of how the devonian fish fossils of the old red sandstone of the uk kinda preserve but other than that I have no idea what else

    What kind of fish mouth plate is this?

    Wading in one of the creeks in my neighborhood provided a few small fossils and I found a interesting looking mouth plate. This is a late Pleistocene area, and in the Tampa member of the Arcadia formation, and the other finds I’m wondering is are these alligator scutes or could I be wrong?
  23. I believe this positive/negative fish fossil specimen to be an Actinopterygian. The fossils are in a limestone nodule and I have no collection information from the estate sale company. These specimens vividly display scales and some bones with the dorsal and anal fins, as well as the caudal fins. Please let me know your thoughts! Thanks for your time and expertise!
  24. Last summer I posted a trip report about finding some Pennsylvanian black shale in a river bed in East Central Illinois http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/106753-628-illinois-black-shale-trip-w-listracanthus/. I was able to visit the site again once more in the fall last year when the river was running much lower and collect more and larger pieces of the finely bedded and fissile shale. Since then I have been slowly splitting and going through the rocks I brought home, and finding many interesting fish parts- that is definitely the dominant fauna presen
