  1. As a dinosaur tooth collector since 2018 I have been fortunate enough to obtain the majority of species I have been looking for in a relatively short space of time. That being said, in the last year I have noticed there has been a severe shortage of high quality dinosaur material available. Not just online but from private collectors too and those that have been available, the prices have shot up considerably compared to a couple of years ago for example. Perhaps Covid 19 is a cause of this. Im just curious as to why people may think this is and their theories behind it.
  2. Hiya everyone. I’m thinking of buying this fossil collection just wanted to know if any of them are real of if they are reproductions. Thanks

    Amateur SVP

    Just today I was reminded of an idea by a friend about trying to do an SVP meeting for Amateur Palaeontologist. Amateur Palaeontologist could join and share their research while getting suggestions by others as well as getting to know other people in the Paleo community. I’m wondering what everyone would think of something like this and if they would join if it is to happen.
  4. I'm hoping the hive mind here can help me. I am looking for sites that contain fossils from at least 3 distinct time periods, all in one exposure, i.e., at least two of them are reworked into the 3rd one. In other words, I am looking for discrete areas of reworking in which fossils are found from at least 3 time periods. Thanks!

    Acrocanthosaurus Tooth

    Good morning! I wanted to share this beautiful Acrocanthosaurus tooth I was gifted by one of my dear friends family after he passed away. It was found in Texas and it is by far my favorite in my collection. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
  6. Hello to everybody! I'm kinda new here, but before I start I must say I really love this forum! It has really great vibes and you instantly can tell that this is a good and friendly community! So, I am ziggycardon, I live in Belgium, close to the border of the Netherlands and when we start speaking geologically, I live on the same cretaceous sediments as where the first major Mosasaurus discoveries where done! Unfortunatly I have never been on a fossil hunt myself and everything currently in my collection was bought or given to me. But I hope to change that soon, as I am dyi
  7. I'm starting to get into mechanical prep seeing as with the quarantine I have extra time on my hand. My equipment arrived before my projects did so I've been practicing on this invert I had on hand. I believe this is a gastropod? Or is it a bivalve? I can never keep them straight in my head. Anyways, I forgot to take a before picture so I apologize for this awful photo as it was the only one I had: And this is it currently: Obviously not done yet, needs some more work and then some serious clean up to make it look nice but I'm thinking to put it aside for a

    Post your first fossil!

    Even if you have hundreds of fossils in your collection, or you are new to the hobby, only one, two, three, fossil(s) is your first. My first fossils are some Moroccan shark teeth. I seen these teeth in a greek science shop. Before this, i don't knew that is so easy to get any fossil for personal collection. I believed that fossils are only for museum or rich. Until this time i don't knew any fossil site or shop. But, with these shark teeth, i learn that is easy to have a fossil collection. I searched for trilobites, dinosaur teeth, and many others. Now, 6 years later, i have a good colle
  10. Hello Fossil Forum, Thank you all for the fantastic information I've already been able to find on prep tools and overall prep lab requirements. I'm in the investigation phase right now and am poised to purchase my first air scribes as an upgrade to the electric engraver I've been using so far. My question is this; for any of the Canadian experts out there, do you have any suggestions on where to look for tools and supplies that can be delivered easily within Canada? There are a lot of great retailers out there, but they all seem to be located in the USA or UK, are there any Canadia
  11. Hello! Help please with identification. Height - slightly more than 2 mm. Age - Paleogene - Miocene. Location - Western Ukraine. Thanks in advance!
  12. Just wanted to post some pics of my finds from 2020 I have a Silurian roadcut in Davidson county, a Devonian spot in Parsons, and I hunt the roadcuts that line hwy 840 in middle Tennessee. I am Brand new to this forum, and I'm looking for new collecting spots I can trade locals! Visit my page on here to see more of my finds!

    Seeking Eastern PA sites?

    I'd really like to get more into fossil hunting and rock hounding after how much fun I had at the beach. Are there any good sites I can access around Eastern PA? Specifically up to an hour or two of driving distance from Berks County. When I search for sites in PA I usually see suggestions for Central and West PA. I'm not looking to join any groups atm for personal reasons, but I'll take suggestions for when I feel up to it (there's a group in Reading I'm keeping an eye on). Any tips would be appreciated! Thanks!
  14. Hello. From a recent trip to the Perm-Carboniferous petrified wood, we brought back some very interesting fragments; nothing like this has come across before. Usually we find fragments of wood (chips), without knots, without a pronounced structure - just highly silicified, indeterminate fragments. But while this trip from a small area (just a couple of square meters), we collected several interesting fragments. This is a solid piece of the trunk with knots located at the same level. 7 knots. Another similar fragment, but split lengthwise. There are only 3
  15. Hello guys! That was outside of my plans to search in such direction, however a small comment started a big discussion about the possibility to have magma melting the rocks and sealing some fossils. In fact what I was suggesting as simple "melting" seems to be a very complex process or group of processes, that I would suggest to discuss here. So it was already commented, that magma can't really melt other rocks. The temperature of magma is not high enough and it will cool down . Still we see many effects of the magma on the rocks and especially on the sediments and fossils. Here I

    Peace River findings

    My husband and I found these 3 bones in the Peace River in Florida. Can anyone identify them for us? This is my first time posting, so I hope the pictures are OK. Thank you so much!

    The best of.....

    Hello, I am quite curious as to what your prized possessions are. You can post about 2 images. I will start with mine. My personal favorite is my Tethysaurus vertebrae, it was either this or my Keichousaurus but I felt like this was more "special" than my Keichousaurus.
  18. Today I stopped at the 2021 Chicagoland Gem and Mineral Show that is being held today and tomorrow at the Kane County Fairgrounds. This is the first show that I have been able to attend in about 18 months. The show was not as big as it normally is, but it was pretty close. At the beginning there were not a lot of attendees, but with in 1 hour, the place was packed. Here are a couple random pics of the show. The line to get in- The crowd- Some pics of the various fossils that were fo
  19. Hello all! A batch of new unknowns found in my micro matrix! Any help will be appreciated! Cretaceous Eagle Ford formation. 1. Interesting geometric pychnodont tooth? I know they can be rectangular, but this one is oddly shaped. Size 5mm 2. Strange "fat" tooth". It looks sharky but the width of the base is throwing me for a loop. Perhaps the cusplet of a bigger tooth? Size 5 mm 3. An odd striated tooth. Size 6 mm 4. A very pointy something. I thought it was a Scapanyorhynchus tooth at first, but it's not

    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!

    Fossil ID - South Carolina

    I spent a couple days this week hunting fossils and sharks teeth around coastal South Carolina. I came across a few fossils that I need help identifying. Any ID or guidance is much appreciated. Images are below.

    Unknown fossils from morocco

    So I got these when i was like 9 at a gift shop. I think these are from morocco either from khouribga or kem kem. Does anyone know what these fossils are? Picture 1picture 2picture 3
  23. Hello, I have been going through some fossils that I bought a while back. I came across this agatized snail from Morocco. I’ve tried to find more information on these agatized snails, but have been unable to find much. Some sellers online say that they come from Assa, Morocco, while others say they come from the Dakhla region. I’m also wondering what species this little guy belongs to, and a more precise age for these gastropods, although I’m pretty sure they are Eocene. Does anyone have any information regarding these agatized snails?

    Lauderdale/ Limestone County line

    I’m VERY new to this but have had some luck( I think). I had them all separated but with the storms came a strong enough wind that a piece of a tree that my husband uses in his hand built smoke knocked the leg off my table and boom there they went and then had to chase my protectors to get some back. Anyway, does it make since that all the different items would be found in a very small section of my yard. The dog house is farther away. It may take a minute to up load the pics. Of course if you want to help ID any I would give you a Dixie land, “Bless You, child, Bless You!”
