  1. Decided to check out the trail next to my house after a heavy rain and found these. I think they're just siderite nodules (hence the orange coloring), but just making sure they aren't something... nicer. The first two attachments show a small hole in the center of the flatter end of each. The rest just show other angles (plus a large version of the pic above).

    A fossil shell, moon, and Cheerios

    I'm back with a few more small finds: A. Another brachiopod(?) that I found in the driveway gravel (supposedly from the Slade formation). Looks a bit different than my others (the ridges aren't as deep and it's more shiny). The rock is 1" long. B. An oddly-textured rock from the creek (Pikeville formation, though the rock may have originated from elsewhere). I noticed a couple shapes on it that might be fossils (maybe crinoid or worm burrows). The rock measures about 6.5cm wide and 4cm tall. C. Poor picture, but here's another from the driveway. I've seen a few pieces with some of the
  3. Today's most unusual find. It looks like some of the smaller Calamites pieces I've found, but the lines look like they're twisted around the specimen instead of straight up and down. Slightly bowed. It measures 3cm long. Found by the creek. (Sorry about the flash. It was dark by time I got inside and the weather is supposed to be bad tomorrow.)
  4. icycatelf


    I found this poking out of the creek about a week ago. It looks like there are leaves in there (maybe some twigs as well), but I'm not sure what kind. The long, skinny shapes of the "leaves" make me think they might be Annularia (although lacking the fanning shape, which I assume is because they fell off the plant), but I'm not sure... The biggest ones at the bottom left measure about 2cm long.

    Gravel Driveway Finds (Marine)

    I had heard about people finding fossils in gravel, but I had never had any personal luck with finding them in my driveway until a couple weeks ago when I happened to spot a shell while bending down for something else. Since then, I've included my driveway in my places to look for fossils. Here's what I've got so far! A. The shell I mentioned above B. Crinoid stems? C. Not sure if this is a fossil or not, but the evenly-spaced "pie slices" caught my eye D. Some kind of shell imprint? E. A red shell that has seen better times... F. Another shell G. Possible coral? H. Tooth? She
  6. I was rummaging through rocks that the county had filled in a hole on our property with and found these. The first I'm very confident is a horn coral, though there are some other things in the matrix that I'm not sure about. I've pointed out a few things specifically, but let me know if you spot any others! At the right end of the coral is a broken washer shape (less than half a centimeter wide). Partial crinoid column? Someone told me that the specimen to the left may be Favosites coral (1cm visible) and the layered pieces to the top right (I see two, though the furthest right is blurry

    Eastern KY

    In an effort to redeem myself after posting my bug/leaf ID question (ha) I thought I would share some of the neat stuff I've been finding in Kentucky. Give me a few minutes, I'm going to have to upload 3-4 photos at a time.

    Kentucky insect

    Hi Everyone! I've been away from the site for quite awhile, but still hunting. I've unearthed what I think is the business end of an insect, but checking the University of Kentucky website, I'm finding fossil insects of the Pennsylvania era are extremely rare. I've been working layers above and below a coal seam. The fossils are rich in plant material. I keep telling myself where there are plants, there must be bugs. Seems, however, insects aren't common finds. Makes me wonder if I'm off base. All thoughts, comments &/or information would be appreciated.

    I'm Planning A Trip

    I'm planning a two day trip to southern Indiana and northern Kentucky. I've have my itinerary so far based on looking around this website and the Falls of the Ohio website. Is there any places worth going to that I've missed or I should skip? I'm mainly interested in trilobites and other things like graptolites or conularids (I've got enough crinoid stems, bryozoans and brachs).

    Sacrum - Animal Unknown

    My family has been recently exploring construction sites along with creeks and small rivers in Southwest Ohio and Northern Kentucky searching for interesting fossils, rocks, and anything else that catches our eye. My 5 year old son has sworn for almost 2 years now that he will grow up to be a paleontologist. While many other kids his age want to play with toys he wants to fossil hunt and metal detect. I am a scientist at heart so I love helping him and once I found this forum I promised him that I would ask some experts if they could help identify the amazing items we have found. The first

    Possible Trace Fossil? Any Ideas?

    It's been a long time since I've posted anything. I've enclosed a few photos of a recent find. I'm thinking it could be some type of trace fossil, but I'm definitely not certain. Any ideas as to what it could be? If even a fossil at all?

    Another Coral From Kentucky?

    I have been trying to id some of the fossils I have been finding through pictures and websites. Being a novice, I just cant seem to come to a easy conclusion so I will have to ask you guys for help. Here is a fossil(?) I found in south central Kentucky. I believe its a coral but don't know exactly.

    Kentucky Fossil From Creek

    Found this in my dad's flower bed after he got a load of rock from a local creek bed. Is it a true fossil and what of. Location of creek is in South central Kentucky.

    Unknown Fossil Found

    I found this in Anderson county, KY. There is a lot of limestone around. I thought it looked kind of like a trilobite, but it looks different than most of the pictures I've seen. Any ideas as to what it is?

    Some Sorta Nut?

    Hi everyone! When I was a little kid I found this fossil while swimming in Lake Cumberland in Kentucky. I've always cherished it, but now I kinda what to know what the heck it is! I'm guessing some sorta nut or seed, but I'd like to get more specific answers. Any ideas?? Thanks!
  16. I found this while fossil hunting yesterday. The exposure I was hunting in is close to a creek shore, and it's obvious the water level rises to its height by the rounding of the nearby stones and the fossil itself (evident on its backside). Other finds in the same area included mostly coral and brachiopods, as well as pieces of coal. I'm no expert on fossils, but when I found this the first thought was a nut shell or seed. But, I know you don't find nuts during this time period fossilized, especially anything this size, and I can't even tell what type of modern day nut it resembles. I then

    Indiana/kentuky Road Cuts

    Hay I am trying to re-plan a second day of a hunting trip because our first choice became state property about a year ago I was wondering if any one had any experience at any of these road cuts. I am just wondering how the collecting was at the sites? Quality and frequency typical of fossils found at each locality? If any one knows the layers to look in too for any specific fossil would be awesome Thanks for the help! -CQ http://www.fallsoftheohio.org/collecting.html Looking at #'s 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 10

    Three Formations, Various Fossils

    Window Formation (New York) / Ashlock Formation (Kentucky) / Black River Formation (Ontario) I have put some names with them but I'm only about 50% sure what they are, some might be right? Would somoneone be able to confirm or correct those that are wrong?

  21. Brachiopods from the Ashlock Formation Every February the climbing club that I belong to heads down to Slade, Kentucky for some climbing at the Red River George. One of the days we were down there it was a too cold to go climbing, so a group of us decided to go on an adventure, seeking out fossils. No particular goal or location in mind but merely to go driving and check out some road cuts. Here are some of the fossils that were found that day: Platystrophia ponderosa (Brachiopoda) from the Ashlock Formation in Kentucky Get out collecting, thank you for taking a look Corey La

    Some sort of Brachiopod?

    Thought this could be a clam, but not sure due to the extension of shell. Maybe a brachipod?
