Hi Everyone, this is my first post and I like to thank you for your information. I will be traveling to the US in October. I'm going to travel in my car from Los Angeles, las vegas, Flagstaff, Albuquerque, Amarillo, Oklahoma, Memphis, New Orleans, Panama City, Sarasota, and Orlando. I want to take advantage of that to do little fossil huntings across that sites. Obviously, I don't want to do something illegal or wrong while collecting. I was talking with some guy from natural science and tell me which is legal and which not. The original idea is to fossil
Hi, I live in the Memphis, TN area, and I am wondering if there is anywhere local to find some fossils. I am new to the hobby, and I'm not very picky on what I'm hunting for. I have heard about finding gravel bars on the Mississippi River, and also nonconnah creek. I'm not sure where to start looking at either location. Any advice is appreciated, thanks in advance!
I spent about an hour digging a cut bank of Nonconnah creek in south Shelby county along the Mississippi Tennessee border just south of Memphis. I was told not to get my hopes up, but I think I may have found a few fossils! The item marked 3 is cylindrical and about 1cm long. I'm not sure about the large item with the pen cap for scale. The entire thing is about the size of a baseball, wasn't sure if the hole on top was just that, or possibly an eye of sort. (Same item is photographed from the back as well)
