  1. [taken from my blog: http://redleafz.blogspot.ca] Rock Hunting All Over Nova Scotia's Fundy Coast (April 2012) It's early in the year to go rock hunting, but the weather had been favorable for the past few days. I had the idea of going for a road trip in Nova Scotia to check a few sites. My friend Matt Stimson was interested to tag along and was in Halifax for the weekend. I had offered to go pick him up in town and from there we could plan what sites to visit. The weather for that day (Saturday April 7th, 2012) had changed and they were predicting heavy snow falls late in the evening. We we
  2. Nancy and I made a two hour stop at the Devonian borrow pit/rubble slopes at Deer Lake, PA on Sept. 1, on our way to St. Clair (along Route 61). These are very steep rubble-covered slopes, a bit tricky to climb and navigate. There are several locations. The mining slopes are posted so we avoided them. There are slopes behind two restaurants, and slopes next to a parking lot although some of the back slopes are posted. I spent most of my time at the top of the slope and Nan cracked shale rocks at the bottom. Nan found a 8 cm long cephalopod which is discussed and pictured in the Fossil I
  3. This has to be the book that opened the door to understanding the geology of home. The Last Billion Years is a 200+ pages put together by the Atlantic Geological Society (AGS) to detail every nuts and bolts of what was going on from the formation of Pangaea to its eventual splitting. I've read that book from front to cover and I keep going back to it for reference. The information for localities and the maps are very well layed out. The chapters of the book are seperated by Period. It goes back and forth all over the Maritimes but doesn't leave you dazed or confused. HA! Every geo topic

    Florida Finds-Peace River

    I know that some of these are teeth-probably horse. But are they all of a horse? The fragments in my hand are different. Appear to be enamel of some sort. What are they? Thanks

    Skin, Scute, Rock, Or Neither?

    About a month or so ago I found something on the side of the road by my house. I am somewhat familliar with the indigenous rocks in the area, however, I am not an expert. This "thing" that I found has layers of some sort, and in places looks like the shed skin of my leopard gecko (it's not), sandwiched between other bumpy layers. The crispy, skin like stuff seems to flake off and folds over in some places. In another area, there seems to be even rows of "pores" that are aligned perfectly. The pictures don't really do it much justice though. I wish they were better. I know that "on the road

    South Dakota Fossil Finds-What Are They?

    I posted these a while back-but wanted to repost with better images. Found these in SW south dakota. What might they be? I am including 2 pictures of each one. The larger one is about 4 inches long-very heavy! I heard it may be titanothere..... How old could they be? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    What Are These? I Need Your Help Please :)

    Attached are pictures of 2 items. I posted one of them recently and received comments that it may have been a scraper or a flake knife. I included what I hope are better pictures of the front and back. I should note that it is extremely sharp. This was found in northern Illinois. The other one sure looks worked on both sides. There is a small recessed area on one side (may not be visible in the pictures)-almost perfect for a thumb. There appeared to be a tip that was broken off. The front (as I call it) contains the red dot-not sure what it is but right above it is some flaking that is evide
  10. 1. Any ideas what this Red Hill fragment might be? I just discovered this in the red shale from our Red Hill trip in June. This is an odd but well defined fragment from the 361 million year old Devonian site where tetrapods crawled onto land - not sure if this is shell material or part of a Devonian fish - about 1 cm - any ideas? 2. Is this a trilobite or shell? (Devonian/Mahantango/Juniata County PA) - about 5cm long: 3. I previously posted this but since found this oblong shell in a reference book - believe it is the bivalve Nuculites - I identified this bivalve after posting -

    Bad Lands Sd-Fossil Tours?

    Does anyone know where a good fossil hunt tour can be found in the bad lands (south dakota) in early September? I know if Paleoadventures but are there any others? Where are there public areas that one can look for fossils? Thanks
  15. Hi All, Due to my obsession on hunting fossils, I have done quite internet research related to possibility to find fossils in Humber river, Toronto. Thus, I found a webpage created by Mr.Doug Ross. In this page, He discuses a study he conducted long time ago on the Humber River area seeking fossils, so I found that there are some who may interested in hunting fossils in this area. Please visit the webpage via the link below: DOUG ROSS WEBPAGE Regards, Majed

  17. Here are a few perplexing fossils from our recent Tully NY trip. Any suggestions? T1a and b. Some sort of X shaped matrix. T2. A Nautiloid shaped fossil/pattern - about 1 cm in size. T3. Iron filled patterns - plants or corals or...? T4a-c. Something dark lurking in the shale. Maybe a curled up trilobite?
  18. I found these and many more in creek areas in two sites here in San Antonio. I love that my greatest finds have been here in my hometown of San Antonio. While Austin is my main source for a grand looking Exogyra Ponderosa, would you believe that its equal in size and shape is down here in San Antonio. I don't know which variety but the striations are very different and the horn curl is equally different at times. I will post some more soon and of Austin. Thank you for looking.

    Ozarks Fossils?

    My name is Jacob and I live in Camdenton, MO. I have always been intrigued by fossils and love to look for them when I get that chance. I have never noticed any around the lake of the ozarks region. Are there fossils around here? Thanks, Jacob
  20. Leaving this afternoon to go to White Have PA to see my 1 daughter and baby grandson, and staying the night. Going to look for some quartz crystals at White Haven, that's where she lives. Then in the morning I have to be in East Stroudsburg PA for some business and after that's done I'm going to Beltzville State Park. I've been wanting to go there for the last 2 months or so but it never worked out. Now it does and I'm going fossil hunting. I'm excited about it! Plus while I'm driving I'll be on the lookout for some interesting road cuts. Can't wait! I'll post pics of my finds later in the wee
  21. One day last week I decided to go looking for some fossils near my house. There is a stream about 2 miles away that runs through a small field, and last year the area was heavily flooded due to a bad rainstorm. I parked my car nearby and walked down into the field where the stream was and the floodplain was littered with all kinds of rocks, mostly big pieces of quartz. I was looking around and saw this one rock that sort of looked like a baseball glove. The bottom of it was a gray rock that had some small shell molds on it, but I was really fascinated with the color of the rock on top of the g

    Need Fossil Id

    I have a fossil that I found that I don't know what it is. I found it in Perry County PA. It's Middle Devonian, limestone & shale mix. The fossil itself is a little bigger than a half dollar. It kind of looks like maybe an anenome, maybe? I would appreciate any and all help. Thank you!
  23. Hi there, Me and my family are going to Cape Town on the 1st of April and plan to have about 10 days here. We all love fossils and have done a bit of hunting in England and found the odd Ammonites, I have seen that cape town has a lot of sharks, I just wanted to see if anyone knows of somewhere to find some sharks teeth on the beaches around cape town (we dont mind traveling a bit). Any tips of finding them is much appreciated. Thanks Mark
  24. Hi There! I'm going to be travelling down good 'ol Route 66 from Illinois to Arizona, and looking for some good fossil collecting localities (i.e., roadcuts, etc), near the Mother Road. I am especially interested in Missouri, Oklahoma, anything in the Amarillo area, and New Mexico. We're going to be staying at grandma's house in Gold Canyon, Arizona - and since grandma sleeps a lot I figure I'll have some time to sneak out and explore that area too! Suggestions? Any help would be appreciated immensely. Thank you, and have an aweosme day! -Roadcut Hannah, her fossil-collecting family, an

    Fossils In Masonry?

    Has anyone seen any good fossils visible in the stone of buildings, walkways, etc? I just think it's kind of neat to stumble on a fossil unintentionally incorporated into the masonry. Springdale cemetery here in Peoria has a somewhat delapidated walkway up to an area of graves made of tiles of some sort of slate-type stone with a number of ammonites visible in it. Another instance was on a job i was doing, a big new house where some masons were building a retaining wall out back. My (biz) partner was walking by their pallets of stone and noticed a pretty sweet trilobite on the surface of one
