  1. Hello I present an interesting question that I'm not to confident to answer myself and am seeking help from the more knowledgeable. Since it seems like (from what I had seen) iron concretions can at rare times preserve certain fossils or traces in one way or another such as molluscs, brachopods, and such. Due to this would it be possible for material such as turtle shell scutes or maybe even croc scutes to turn up in such concretions in one way or another? (the pics are just snipets of general info that I came across online)

    Dino egg?

    Going thru my box of geodes and found what possibly could be Dino egg...need help to identify this fossil...found this in northern Iowa in my husband’s grandmother’s rocks outside in her flower bed...may not originally be from Iowa. Approximate Measurements: 5” long. 10.1cm wide 4” wide. 7.6cm wide

    Any ideas what this is ?

    I found this one in the same location of a few other confirmed fossils, is it just a rock or should I investigate this further?
  4. I am pretty sure that this is a fake but mind if I get some opinions? Thanks! Here’s some pictures. https://imgur.com/gallery/GipDlU3 https://imgur.com/gallery/Ua7bFVV https://imgur.com/gallery/6X5VBVH

    Glue!

    What glue do you recommend for fixing broken fossils?. The one i currently use is called gorilla glue but i'd like a colourless one.
  6. I've seen people acid prep their keichousaurs and they come out beautiful. I know nothing about acid prepping, so what would I need if I was going to prep my own keichousaurus? Is it as simple as soaking it in chemicals to melt away the rock?

    Trilobite question

    I know that Metacanthina is now called Hollardops but I have a Hollardops that has a spine right on the center of the cephalon where it meets the thorax. Is this a Hollardops or something else.Thank anyone for advice.
  8. Okay so I found this specimen at the Taughannock Falls in Ithaca New York. I found it at the edge of the gorge which consists of Shale, composed of slit and clay that fell onto lime mud and hardened into rock. I've done some research and it appears to be a Brittle star trace fossil formed by their arm grazing the sand floor. Although, these Brittle Star fish traces are known as "Pteridichnites biseriatus" and they have only been discovered so far in upper Devonian shales out in western and eastern Virginia. I'm not an expert but to my knowledge the Ithaca geological formation is Devonian and w
  9. I have a dinosauromorph foot print is it rare? I will upload photos of my collection when I get home later today so stay updated.
  10. Came across this piece of petrified wood awhile back and was just noting the odd red markings in the second photo. Any idea what would cause such unique markings on petrified wood? I've never seen such before...
  11. I don’t know if this question is in the right place, I’m sorry. I’m not asking because I want to sell anything. But.... I was browsing the member trade section and noticed y’all do a secret Santa, (HOW FUN!!) the rules state that the gifted fossil’s value should be worth approximately $30 that got me wondering.... how would you even go about estimating the monetary value of a fossil you find yourself? I’ve been fortunate to find very beautiful things but to me they don’t have a for sale value so I wouldn’t know where to start in my collection to find one that is about a “$30 fossil”

    Weird stuff/cool stuff

    I have some pictures of weird creatures that I had been collecting online(pictures, not creatures), but never getting around to anything with them, and I keep having to delete them to make room, so I figured I'd just make a thread dedicated to the idea, instead of a thread each time there's a crazy knew whatever I come across. Please feel free to give any info or thoughts, answers or questions about anything brought up, and if there's any weird or particularly cool creature you want to mention, go ahead and post about it, preferably with a picture. it's ok if you don't have a pict
  13. Hi guys, Recently I ordered a partial wooly rhino skull and as you could imagine I was on the brink of tears when it arrived. I ordered from overseas and someone must have dropped the box or something? but I am contacting the seller to see if I could get a partial refund (but I have my doubts). So I am trying to be positive and make this my "not so little" prep project, there is one problem though. I have no idea what I'm doing! (I don't even know if It's salvageable) So this is where you amazing people come in. I would love to get this looking as original as possible and was wondering if ther
  14. Hey guys, Today i bought a necklace of a supposed tooth fossil from a sperm whale. However, i don´t think it is from a whale. In the same way, i don´t know if it is a fossil. What do you think about? Here are the pictures. Greets from Mexico.
  15. Does anyone know? I hear there's many fossils there. On all of the maps, though, there's no name for the creek. I know it's random, but I just want to try hunting there with a friend. Thanks! ~RiseOfTheExtinct

    Cataloguing software?

    My ever expanding fossil collection is without documentation. With all the details of the fossils in my head alone, is there a software or website capable of cataloguing my collection? Ideally i'd like to be able to upload photos of each fossil and fill in custom parameters and notes for each. Does something like this exist? Note: I am running macOS Sierra version 10.12.1

    Can't Identify

    Morning! I was fossil hunting along Calvert Cliffs, MD this week and saw a weird pattern in the cliff wall line. I found a plate with unusual patterns on it. At first I thought it may be a turtle shell but now I'm thinking it may not be. I would love to get some insight. Thanks!

    Is this even a fossil?

    I found this “rock” on the beach in Key West, Florida a number of years ago when I stepped on the bulbous part. The shape interested me so I kept it. Recently while watching a documentary about fossils it occurred to me that this looks strangely like part of a fossilized femur. I was wondering if anyone can identify this and confirm or deny my suspicion. Also, if it is a fossil, approximately how old might it be?
  19. So I've been trying to get creative with fossil displays, and I've seen people use a kind of clay to display their fossils and ID cards. What kind of clay should I look for???
  20. I was curious about the bare snouts I see on art/restorations of dromaeosaurs (and maybe other feathered non-avian theropods, but I mostly associate it with dromaeosaurs) and tried to do a bit of Googling on the topic, but I've found conflicting reports on whether or not there's strong evidence for it and not much in the way of actual specimens/papers that relate to it. I thought I'd throw the question out here, as I'm sure some of you have thoughts and/or sources on the subject! (Related: if at least some of them did have bare snouts, do we think they would have been covered in scales or bare

    Academia.edu?

    Question for the room. I didn't know where to put this, so I posted it here. Does anyone on here have access to Academia.edu, or to any other solid sources of searching published academic papers? I keep getting notifications that I have been cited in a few highly cited papers, particularly ones pertaining to paleoceanography—which if anything I ever did was to ever be cited—would probably be pertinent to that. There is a far more knowledgeable Jay C. Wollin in the field, but I don't think he does much with marine fossils. I'm just curious to know if any of these citations could be
  22. Howdy. I always see green river stingrays that are "inlaid." I THINK inlaid means they took the stingray and placed it into a better looking matrix, is this correct?
  23. Hello, I am completely new to everything related to fossils but my little brother is interested in paleontology (he is 9). I live in the north york area (toronto, ontario) and I'm considering looking for fossils with him(he has never went). The only river I really know of is the don valley river. It is possible for me to go right next to the water since there is a little animal-made trail there if that is of any importance. The river goes through the West Don Parkland. Overhead view of the river: https://www.google.ca/maps/@43.760302,-79.4425897,284a,20y,62.99h,41.66t/data=!3m1!1e3

    No Idea If It IS One, If Not, So Sorry!

    Having read the new member posting cautions, do not want to waste anyone's time. We're just baffled. Besides splitting shale, once in awhile finding grass or fern ( since we were kids ), spend a fair amount of PA time crawling around Appalachians looking for Native American petroglyphs, etc. They're around, sometimes in odd spots. Fun, poking the camera somewhere promising, one time in a thousand you'll find something interesting ( besides a snake ). Only using ' Fossil ' ID because it looks like it was alive? Found this, last year. Went back several times after going through pics
  25. Since getting into fossils something has been bugging me alot about material from the Jurassic and especially material from such places as colorado, utah, etc. Alot of bone material I see online for sale, mostly fragments in various sizes are usually unlabeled and generalized as being from any dinosaur from the Jurrasic. I wonder if there is at least a way to differentiate at least herbivore bone from theropod bone (like allosaurus from camarsaurus)? Is it similar to the method used for cretaceous bone of the honey comb pattern or not? I'm curious why it seems harder to identify Jurassic bone
