    Post your latest personal find

    All collectors love to find fossils. In this topic, you can post your latest personal find. I have buy the 95% of my fossils and in Greece you can't find any rare fossil. But I go to a Pliocene formation in Rafina/Pikermi (nearly Athens) and I find bivalves and barnacles. The large barnacle on the photo is my best personal find and I found it just today. Post your latest personal find!
  2. San Antonio, Tx Do limestone and/or sediment formations tend to repeat a formation in similar shapes and sizes? The one on the top left appears to be a clay bottle.
  3. Hello all! This is a little photo project I've been working on for a while. When I first started Fossil Hunting I was content to collect whatever. Then I was excited about Identifying what I was finding. The education continued and now I work to identify the geological formations I am collecting in and am able to know what fossils to look for in what areas. The Pocket Texas Geology website is invaluable for finding out the formation of a specific area (while not 100 percent accurate, it's pretty good). So I wanted to create a post that would help with Central Texas Cretaceous Fossil Identific

    My Tyrannosaur research

    Hi I decided to make a post about my main research project right now on Campanian Tyrannosaurs specifically Daspletosaurus. Today I have found something to tell teeth from the Judith River Formation and Dinosaur Park Formation. This could also do with the Tyrannosaurs prey or locality. I found out that Judith River Formation Tyrannosaur teeth serrations are more circular and more round compared to the same time Dinosaur Park Formation Tyrannosaur teeth serrations. The Dinosaur Park Formation Tyrannosaur teeth serrations are more longer skinner and more chiseled like but not like other Tyrannos
  5. I use this site https://mrdata.usgs.gov/geology/state/map-us.html#search-results to see what formations my collecting sites are in. But, due to my lack of knowledge (?) it only helps so much. When I click on the map at the collection site location I get this type of data : Record ID Name Comment OHOdl;0 Drakes, Whitewater and Liberty Formations, Undivided Ordovician OHOgm;0 Grant Lake and Fairview Formations, Miamitown Shale, Undivided Ordovician
  6. I have a few things I want to know about the fossil formations in general. Are there any formations located underground entirely and are undiscovered? Have we seen more evolved species disposited on top of another less evolved species? Thanks for any help

    Need Help with Identification

    Hi everyone, need help with some identification here. The first photos of the brown looking tooth was found in Edisto, while the bone you see was found in Dorchester Creek in Summerville.
  8. Hi I decided to make this since the new Tyrannosaur from Alberta’s Foremost Formation, Thanatotheristes deerootorum has just been named and described. Enjoy!! Tyrannosaur bearing Formations in Canada: Formations in Alberta but most of the Formations on my list are I Alberta anyway. Horseshoe Canyon Formation 74-68 million years ago, Alberta: Albertosaurus sarcophagus, possibly Daspletosaurus sp. but no compelling evidence so far. Oldman Formation 78.2-77 million years ago, Alberta: Daspletosaurus torosus, Gorgosaurus sp. Foremost
  9. Well, in my research to find a fossiliferous bed near me I have been struggling with the geology, and spending days driving around observing, taking notes and pics. Well, I just found a published paper from one of the original paleontologists. In it, he lists the location of each outcrop, but this leads to more confusion. When I track the T,R,S locations listed, there is nothing there. Every promising site I found while scouting is clearly visible on satellite mapping. When I look up the listed spots, I find NOTHING. It's just plowed farmland. I find zero evidence of buttes, mesas, draws

    Where to go in New Mexico

    Greetings!!! I'm planning a trip to New Mexico this summer. I would welcome any information besides the basic tourist stuff. I'll be in the northern Farmington area for a week. Can't wait!!! Thanks in advance for any insight. Bruce (WATERLINE)

    Strange Formation On Road Cut

    This on a high wall on a road cut along side of the end of rt 34 in Hamlin Lincoln CO WV, its about 20 ft above the road about 625ft above see level and about 60ft above the mud river am i correct in assuming that this hole was caused by a torrent of water whipping that boulder around inside there its about the size of a medicine ball. Ive seen these on the bottoms of creeks but never up on hillside like that. What kind of flow would it take to do this as far as feet per second i know theres a formula just cant think of it
  12. I believe these are sandstone formations? but not sure of type fresh of the ground last night.
  13. As you all are (hopefully) aware at this point, there are countless scores of fossiliferous formations all across the world, each with its own name. What formation's name do you like the most? I'd have to go with my home town Conasauga Formation. It has a really nice ring to it (and of course, there's some home-town bias in there ).

    Looking for information about Hengshan, Hunan.

    I have a friend that lives in a remote area of China in the Hunan province. I was just wondering if anyone has information on fossils near Hengshan, Hunan? Outcrops, localities, what to look for? I know it's a shot in the dark, but worth a try.
  15. Placement of terrestrial formations in the late cretaceous of North America as been constantly evolving and in October 2016 Denver Fowler a Paleontologist at the Museum of the Rockies published a very extensive paper on the subject and updated most units. This is very important when it comes to understanding dinosaur evolution and aids in describing species. This paper is in the process of going through peer review so is subject to change. Fowler DW. (2016) A new correlation of the Cretaceous formations of the Western Interior of the United States, I: Santonian-Maastrichtian form

  18. Hello I'm heading to Kansas for a father son weekend at his campus. (Jayhawks) Lawrence Kansas. i was curious if anyone has any areas of interest for trilobites? I'm doing some research but not much luck so I'm hoping someone here knows if some areas? We are going to hunt lake texoma on our way back and maybe NSR.. But if we can find some areas near 35 on our way back it would be great.. thanks everyone..
  19. I stumbled on this tonight and it's got some great info! http://carolinageologicalsociety.org/CGS/1950s_files/gb%201957.pdf
  20. While researching formations in my area, I stumbled on this report. I found it really interesting as, if I'm looking at the maps and graphs correctly, shows the depths of the various formations along with their geological periods... http://www.dnr.sc.gov/water/hydro/HydroPubs/pdf/SCWRC_139.pdf

    Olmsted County, Minnesota

    I stumbled upon this while researching Brachiopods and thought it deserved a mention. It's a chart with the stratigraphy of Olmsted County, Minnesota but applies to most of Southeast Minnesota. There's also a nice chart showing the geological time scale of Minnesota. Charts from "Environmental Geology of Olmsted County, Minnesota" R. K. Hogberg, 1973 Generalized Geologic Secton Geologic Time Chart
