    Will's summer 2021

    Hi Guys, I’ve been doing a bit of hunting this summer and thought some of you might like to see what I have found , this trip report is mostly going to focus on finds as in the moment, I wasn’t great at taking photos now I’m not very organised so we aren’t doing this in a chronological order, I’m just going to describe each site separately the bulk of my hunting occurred on the Isle of Wight, so it is only natural that we start there, I’m going to start with one of the less interesting sites, whale chine (an image from the internet) , I stopped here on the way to the
  3. Hello. I offer for trade fragments of petrified wood of the Carboniferous period with crystals of smoky quartz. Some samples are in the photographs (I did not upload all the samples I have, since there are quite a few of them - of different sizes and qualities, as well as the sizes of the crystals themselves. I think we can agree on what specifically interests you - I have no doubt that I will find the sample you need). The origin of this wood is Ukraine, its age is Carbon. I'm interested in marine reptiles and petrified wood. Thank you. Have a nice day
  4. So I am thinking about ordering from " Douglas fossils" but the email on the website isn't working. So I was wondering if anyone knows how else I could contact the owner? Thanks in advance.

    Found in North Topsail, NC

    I have several fossils that I have no idea what they might be (or even if they are actually fossils. Found in North Top Sail, NC #1 #2 #3 #4 I have others also but this is a start. Thank you for any help you can offer on identifying. Stacy I didn’t realize the other pictures had attached at the end. The Grey one I think is a barnacle and the other one looks a lot like asphalt in the middle but it is weirdly shaped and my son told me it was a vertebrae when he found it. thank you

    Fossil's or just stones ?

    Hello everyone. My son and i are both passionate about paleontology. During our research’s, we found these stones in red clay/sand with flint dating from Cenomanian (near Chartres, France). The stones were among the remains of bivalves and sponges. All the fossils found show strong erosion. Do you think it could be fossils or just stones? Thank you
  7. Hello. I was lucky to find a few samples of the Carboniferous period; I found them interesting. The first photo is probably a Lepidostrobus. I ask you to confirm or refute this guess, as well as help with the determination of the rest of the samples. Thank you! Have a nice evening
  8. Good day everyone, I found a couple of fossils today on a beach walk and was wondering what most of them were. I suspect the one shark tooth belongs to a prehistoric great white and the other a juvenile meg as the tooth is the thickest shark tooth I've ever picked up - unfortunately it is damaged. As for the rest I am absolutely clueless and would appreciate any help with identification. Thank you.
  9. Hello All, Some photo's/images taken after fossil hunting trips to Limburg and Belgium. These are Cretaceous fossils (73 and/or 72-66 million year old, late-late Campanian, early Maastrichtian). For the most part the squid-like Belemnites (Belemnitella sp./Belemnitella junior (Nowak, 1913) or B. mucronata (Von Schlotheim, 1830) and other species (Belemnella sp.). Also Sea urchins (Echnicoroys sp.) and one piece of a Hemipneustes sp. or (possibly) Hemipneustes striatoradiatus (Leske, 1778). Also one oyster Pycnodonte vesicularis (Lamarck, 1806) and one small Sea ur

    Fossil Art

    Dear Forum Members, I am interested in hearing whether or not anyone here has played around with interesting or exotic displays for their fossils, or in hearing if anyone has created fossil art from the usual materials (e.g. paints, pencils, etc...) or from digital tools (e.g. neural style transfer, digital drawing platforms, etc...). I have used a machine learning technique called neural style transfer to take the following artwork, extract its style, and apply it to an image of a fossil. I have also tried to do some stuff with TSP (Traveling Salespers

    What are these?

    Hello, I need help identifying some of these fossil. I am not even sure if they are all fossil but they look like they should be. They are from one of the paleo packs that paleo Chris sells.

    Mazon Creek Preparation

    I have some questions about Mazon Creek fossils preparation. 1. How we can know that the "egg" contain a fossil? 2. How we can cut the "egg" in the correct point, without to damage the fossil? 3. When we see pos/neg specimes, how the "egg" has been cuted so accurate?

    Fossil Shark ID help please.

    Hi folks. My turn to ask for ID help. I’m more of a dinosaur tooth and fossil guy. My friend gifted me these fossil shark teeth. Can you take a look and help me with these? I own a couple Meg teeth and other Shark teeth, but these are giving me a little trouble, or I’d like verification. The first two (A) and (B) have a bourlette, but proportionately large serrations like a Great White. Except GW teeth don’t have bourlettes. I believe (C) and (D) May be Carcharocles hastalis. Are they? I believe (E) is a Mako. But what species? Lastly, is

    Denver Show 2021

    Has anyone heard anything about this year's Denver show? I haven't been in 5 years and am planning on attending this year.
  17. Hello everyone! Here’s the deal: I’m moving in the beginning of August which will entail a 900 mile drive (away from any cretaceous fossils ). Wondering how you all would pack your collections! Most of my collection (95%, lol) consists of teeth. Mostly cretaceous sharks and fish, one meg, a spino, and two mosasaur. I have a few inverts as well, which I’m predicting will be the most fragile. No large pieces or bone. I’m thinking individually wrap the fragile pieces, while the common teeth can all be put together? Let me know of any good ideas! Thank you!!

    Hello! Help pleae to identify this tooth. I think that it is Rhynchobatus but I didnt found before this genus and dont know certainly... Size - slightly more than 1 mm. Location - Western Ukraine. Age - Middle Miocene. Thanks in advance!
  22. Would any metal, specifically colbalt chrome fossilize? I'm asking because I have a book where a time portal opens to 65 million years ago, a character stabs another and the blade breaks off in the dead man's chest, and he gets buried under a mudflow. They find his fossilized remains in the present day, but would the broken blade still be stuck in his bones? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks! :)
  23. Ill be working on a pretty big fossil and wanted to know any differences between paraloid b - 72 and paleo bond stabilizer . I've used paranoid on a few things but have no experience with paleobond stabilizer. Are they used the same ? Does paleo bond need any mixing ?

    Unknown Teeth from Peace River, Florida

    I have two unknown fossils one being a tooth and the other I believe is a ray mouthplate/jaw bone. Sorry about the photo quality on the mouth plate it had a strange shape. Thanks
  25. With more nice weather and low tides a friend and headed down the west side of Cook Inlet to dig clams. The island in the background will be explored for fossils after getting some groceries from the tidal flats. It was a weekend day so lots of people out in aircraft and boats digging clams. The boats come across Cook Inlet from the Kenia Penninsula and stay for the full low tide cycle. Kobuk stayed in the plane so I did not have a messy passenger for the rest of the trip. The quarry are down in the sand
