    A Very Tiny Mystery

    Hello wonderful fossil-people! If you and you're gang enjoy solving a groovy mystery, I have a post for you! This rock was found in an area of Northern Arizona that is very well know for producing lots and lots of bryozoan, brachiopod, and crinoid fossils, as well as crystals and geodes. The bit of rock in question was found in the side of what appears to be a broken geode. There is a triangular fragment of stone that does not match the material surrounding it. There is also a white discoloration encompassing the triangle that I've highlighted in green on one of the photos below. The colo

    Might be a dumb question

    Hi everybody, I’m by no means a fossil head but I have a question that pertains to my research for my artist practice. Is it possible for a fossil to be preserved in a metal? I know it sounds like a dumb question but I am curious if the science makes sense. Is there an example of this phenomenon? If so let me know, again thank y’all so much!
  3. Ok so I was thinking of using resin to coat a skull I have in my collection. Its rather pricey so I wanted to make sure I could protect it from any further damage. The skull appears to be coated with something already since I see a shiny texture in some areas, so should i bother using a resin on it as well ??
  4. As the title states, why do crinoids often show up alone as the sole type of fossil in an area? There's a quarry near my house I've been to a few times that has crinoid bearing marble. I've found a few crinoid stem pieces in rocks, but I don't really understand why they're the only type of fossil (unless you count chert.) The area is Permian-Devonian, so if crinoids fossilized shouldn't plenty of other common marine animals have fossilized too? Or am I thinking too narrowly and there's a good chance they DID fossilize and I simply have to look a little deeper? I'm not too knowledgable on the p
  5. 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)

    Is Vinac Flammable?

    Hey everyone, I recently purchased vinac beads to help preserve my fossils and when I got it, the directions tell me to mix the beads with pure acetone. As we know, pure acetone is flammable and dangerous to breath in and so my question is, when you mix the Vinac beads with acetone, is the resulting Vinac still flammable and dangerous to breath in or does the Vinac neutralize it? When the Vinac dries onto the fossil after applied, is it still dangerous to breath in and flammable? Also, what type of filter or mask should I use when using acetone to prevent damage to lungs? Any info

    Big teeth at Brownies Beach?

    Hello everybody. My girlfriend and I are making one last trip to Brownies tomorrow before it costs 40 dollars for us to get in (barf). But I've had some questions about it. We have gone one time before, and were unable to get past the one little point/corner, but still found over 200 teeth, which was awesome, however most of the teeth were small, tiny even. Are there any tips or places to find some bigger teeth in the area? I've heard the farther south you go, AKA past the point we couldn't get past last time, the teeth tend to get bigger. And is sifting a viable option to f
  9. I'm doing a research project and one of the requirements is that I have to have an interview, I was referred to here by a friend and was hoping to see if someone would be willing to answer a few simple questions on prehistoric camels in North America for me What was the environment they lived in like then? Where did they live? Why did they leave North America? How did they differ from modern camels? What was their diet like?
  10. A few questions on smokejacks quarry, sulley: is it public or private? What is the possibility of finding dinosaurian fossils (percentage)? And could people who have been their show me their finds? Thanks in advance.

    Oldman Formation

    Does the Oldman Formation reach North USA?
  12. Hello everyone. Recently, my my friend told me that abelisaurids aren’t determinable by their teeth. Is this true? Also, recently is saw some majungasaurus crenatissimus 3/4” teeth for sale. Does anyone know the rarity of these? And also, is magungotholus the same as majungasaurus? Thank you.
  13. My first post here. A chance to visit the Kitakyushu Museum of Natural History in Japan. Stunning fossil display and great signage design. Please see the photos. Also, I'm now studying the visitor experience development in natural history museums. Can anyone spare 3 mins to do an online survey? It's all about natural history museums. https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/BLKHYCW
  14. when i look at goniatites and ammonites i see no diffrence. so what IS the diffrence between the two .
  15. Everyone knows associated fossils, specifically of associated bones (bones that come from the same creature). I was wondering what association among fossils extend to. Can 2 individual echinoids found in close proximity in the same layer be considered associated?

    Found this in an oklahoma river

    So as staited we were in oklahoma on a paddle trip. We found this strange little stone. The center is a star, i didnt think man could do that. Any ideas what it could be?
  17. Believe it or not, not everyone is familiar with the world of fossil hunting. Sometimes we might attract the attention of the uninitiated while out collecting. "What is that person up too?" They might think. You could be hammering away at an outcrop on a public roadside or beach or turning up all dirty carrying your rock pick and a heavy pack in a car park. Through the years with fossil hunting and through collecting mud cores for work I've had this happen. The other day it was a group of surfers on a remote beach. "Are you looking for gold with that little pick axe?"

    Matoaka beach questions

    1.) open sundays? 2) allowed to hunt under (not in) cliffs? 3) good fossils? 4) crowded? thanks for any responses.
  19. I put this under q and a but feel free to move it. I'm going to be consolidating a few bones very soon and I have some questions before I start. First, my solvent. I have butvar, but I don't have acetone. What dilution should I get, or should I get 100%? Also a experienced fossil hunter I met said alcohol (isopropyl I assume?) works as well. Is this true and are there any downsides to this? One of the bones is broken, so do I consolidate first and then glue? If I come up with more questions I'll post them here as well. Thanks for the help!

    Did Ammonites shoot ink?

    Like did Ammonite shoot ink back then? please tell me.
  21. Hi all! I'm a writer and I'm working on a short story about Paleontology. I write about things that catch my interest and I think I saw on a cereal box somewhere there where only 3 (mostly complete) Rex skeletons. Only 3! My question is how much do we usually find when it comes to Rex's at dig sites? Is it a bone here and there, or like a quarter or so of the animal. I find it very weird that we only have 3 after all these years. Anyway, thought I'd ask some experts rather than make things up, haha Thanks! -Isaac

    Air abrasion info?

    Hello I am really struggling to figure out the best way to do micro abrasion. All of the units I can find on line all have terrible reviews regarding quality and functionality. Many of them are dental oriented units, which would probably be fine, but they are chinese made and poor quality. Then it seems that without expensive and elaborate water removal systems for your air compressor they wont work anyway. There are obviously zillions of people out there around the world prepping fossils using micro-abrasion and hopefully baking soda but I cant seem to find a system that anyone li
  23. Hi, I live in a small town in western mass near Springfield and of course interested in fossils. I can't seem to find any fossils in my area at all I've searched since I was younger o no avail. All I want to know is anyone has had any luck with fossils in this area. Thank you
