  1. I have a serious question. As.I was taking pictures of a few of my fossils, I decided to zoom in on my rock. I became so intrigued By what I was I continues zooming in on alot of my small fossils. Does anyone else being their zoom to a max and just inspect a rock? It looked like little dinosaurs everywhere. My questions are does anyone else do this? And also what are these things that look like little dinosaurs when I zoom? It's like I can see how many crazy things. Any answers or suggestions would be great. I'll take the negative and positive. Should I stay away from zooming in or what?
  2. San Antonio, Tx 78023 The rock in the left was found behind my sisters house about 30 yards from a dried out creek bed. It was found about 8 in down while metal detecting. So far we have pulled about six various size rocks from this hole. It looks like it hard a corn, on the top right of that rock. The rock on the right is just another one from my back yard.
  3. I found this strange cracked rock in the Oquirrh Mountains in Tooele Co (Ut) in an area that I've found fossils. It’s got a crusty sedimentary like texture underneath the cracked subaqueous surface. I sure would appreciate some help in identifying this rock and why it has strange cracks all over it??? I share many of my fossils and rocks w/ local school children, so it would be nice to know more about this rock before I share it. All of the pictures are of the same rock & one is a pic of the backside of it.

    What are these

    Can anyone please tell me what these are? Found in a quarry in Australia I have a lot of unusal shape rocks from there. 20210311_090719.heic
  5. Hi guys! I am looking for new areas to hunt for rocks and fossils around the KC area. I have been to the Blue river, Kansas river, Cedar creek, Tuttle creek, Perry Lake, Mill creek, and abandoned quarry areas. Anyone have any general locations of where I can find some stuff? I am an avid hunter for all sorts of fossils and rocks (rockhounding is my favorite past time)! I've had the most luck at the Kansas river and Perry lake. Some of my finds include cow skulls, cone coral, shells, agates, vertebrae, and a bunch of druzy quartz geodes and chalcedony. I ha
  6. So i really like the fossils from morroco so i would really like to buy slabs/rocks from morroco mostly the kem kems. So i could find fossils in the rocks myself is there anyway to do that? Should i contact fossil sellers from morroco? Is there some website/store that sells them? And i have seen many fossil morroco sellers that are scammers. Is there any really good sellers i can Contact?

    Possible mudcrack?

    Found this on a rocky beach in Southern California and have no clue what it could be. Both sides are almost Ying yang like. Let me know if you have any clues!
  8. Hello, here is my experience with my cheap little tile saw purchased 12/22/2020. That´s the setup at the moment: Some modifications and additions: - I rotated the saw by 180°. This is first to reduce spraying into the face. And second it is much easier to "feed" from the back. You also have much more visual control producing an even cut in this way. Electric switch is now at the back right, which is no problem. - Glued two thin plates (2 mm) onto the table, touching the blade. The table has a big gap at one side of the blade to allow tilting of the table. That´s a nui

    Hunting at McFadden Beach

    I've found a number of fossilized jaws on this beach that I have no clue of the animal they came from. Hopefully someone here will be able to tell me. We also find many bones of probably bison that hasn't fossilized. So here are a few pics -------- This is what the beach looks like.

    Hunting at McFadden Beach

    I have hunted McFadden Beach many times. It's located on the Texas coast near the small town of High Island. Most of the it's easy collecting bones, teeth and if very lucky, even a paleo dart point. I can't put names to many of even the bones we find on the beach but my question isn't about the obvious bones, but about many of "something" we have found that has turned into what I believe is iron. Please get your opinions. Were these some kind of animal or plant or just funny looking rocks? First picture is what I'm asking your opinions about. Seems to me they turned into a

    new rocks

    found the first two yesterday , the second pair have a lot of shiny crystal like stuff in them
  15. I first learned about this forum today, and I was able to identify fossils that I had been curious about for a while. I was very happy. I am recently interested in fossils, prehistoric creatures and dinosaurs. I will continue to receive help, and I will do my best to provide a lot of help. There are a lot of stones I picked up by the river in my house, but some of them have holes. How can you distinguish between 'trace fossils' and 'just erosion' holes? (Clockwise 1-2-3-4; stone 1 was washed with water before taking the picture.) (1) Can
  16. My wife dragged me away from Big Brook this weekend for a trip to Cape Cod. Beautiful but non-fossilious Cape Cod. So what’s a fossil collector to do? Well if you’re on the Cape you walk the beaches looking for modern shark teeth and perhaps some cool bone. No shark teeth and the closest I came was likely modern bovine teeth (although I suspect it’s been a long while since cows were grazing out there). In a pinch, rocks and shells would have to do and I had a ball nonetheless. I did find some horseshoe crab and sea bird skeletons but so far she who must be obeyed won’t let me bring them insi

    Are any of these fossils?

    I'll preface this with that fact that this was my first time fossil hunting so these are probably just be random rocks haha. These were all found at Agate Beach, CA, where some petrified bone and shells are known to be found. Pencil is for scale
  18. This is a completely new area of interest for me, but I find scanning for microfossils addictive. I got some vinegar and plan on processing some beach rocks (East Central Florida) that I picked up because I could see easily see some small fossils on the surface and assumed there would also be micro fossils inside. I crushed a few small samples, which did reveal more microfossils. Mostly what I could identify are broken bits of bones, but I'm sure there is much more that I'm missing. There is one object I found very interesting and beautiful, however I don't know what it is. I
  19. Hey everyone. I thought I'd share some of the things I found on my last fossil hunt. So.. Many.. Fossils! One might even say that there were a plethora of fossils. If I could, I would've taken them all with me, but sadly my backpack can only carry so many rocks. I was literally examining each rock I had, trying to decide which to carry back and which to leave behind and how many I could fit in my pants pockets before they started to fall down. Eventually I decided to just stop looking for fossils and hike back to the jeep. This lasted all of 3 seconds before I found another a beautiful by
  20. A very simple website (mostly pdf-documents) about my fossil hunting trips and some other stuff: Die Steirische Geo-Seite All in German... Franz Bernhard
  21. Yesterday (Saturday, Aug. 22nd), I went fossil hunting in Ellsworth County, Kansas again for elusive Dakota Sandstone leaves and unfortunately it's mostly a bust, just like the previous trip. Despite that, I enjoyed the scenery and found some odd rocks and few fossils from new sites. A new site produced a few small plates containing woody and plant material fragments. I decided not to keep them. Closer views... Remember that interesting sandstone from the previous trip? I regretted for not taking it home so I took another opportunity

    Sharks Teeth or Rocks?

    Hi Everyone! I'm new here but was hoping for some help. My daughter and I were hunting for sea glass yesterday along the coastline in Jamestown, RI (there is a small, hidden location that has worn down glass, pottery, shells and stones) and I found a few treasures that look like they could be shark teeth but I'm not convinced. In your opinion are these worn down fossils or simply rocks that got my hopes up??? Any input would be greatly appreciated!
  24. Me and my fiance headed into Wauchula this afternoon to try to find some good gravel spots at the behest of @Shellseeker and his helpful advice given to me on my last post. I have been to the Peace a total of 4 times, all within the span of a month or two because these water conditions are just way too good to pass up. Every time I come back to the river I have a new game plan and every time I actually get TO the river the plan goes out the window. Today's adventure was no different. We pulled up to Wauchula Riverside Park (Crews Park?) and were pleasantly
