  1. Big T-Rex Fossil hunter

    Fossalized crustacean

    Anyone familiar with this rock. Long story short have river rock around my house and found these. Going to guess that they get these rocks from the Mississippi somewhere but I live where a once shallow sea was. More of them will be posted as well. And will have the same story but be different fossils. Any guesses on this particular specimen it is about 1 and 1/4 in long and the whole thing is about 1 and 1/2 in long. The bigger part of the shell is more faded so it might not look like the whole shell is 1 and 1/4 in long but it is.
  2. hi i live in calgary and i just wanna know what species or most importantly to me, what time period these fossils belong to. I found these fossils when i was walking along the bow river and decided to take them home. Here are the pictures

    Small gastropods

    From the album: Hell Creek Formation Microsite

    Small (1-2mm) gastropods.
  4. Tiny killer fossils from a day at Hill Annex Mine State Park - the Colerain formation (Calumet Minnesota). Fossils found volunteering for the Hill Annex Palaeontology Project. Ammonite fossils were found by Steve - a fellow volunteer. www.mndiscoverycenter.com/visit/paleo www.cse.umn.edu/mgs/mesozoic-geology

    I apologize in advance...I know nothing of fossils. A friend gave me this. It's from the coal mine by Sparta Illinois. The same mines that the pyrite suns come from. He said it was a snail. Here's my dumb question... is the snail the whole thing or just the small circle in the middle? As i stated...i know nothing of this so thank you for your help.
  6. Hi, I wonder if somebody knows what a freshwater snail could have been doing inside a broken freshwater mussel? Was it feeding on it? Was it seeking a shelter in it, or it is just an accident? Has somebody here seen such or a similar fossil of one shell inside another broken one? Thanks!

    Is this a fossil acorn?

    My husband found this nearly perfect spherical fossil on a beach in South Carolina. We think it looks like an acorn, but perhaps it is some sea creature. Any ideas? Thanks for your help

    Foram or snail?

    Been finding a lot of these tiny spiral shells. While some are definitely gastropods this one looks similar to some forams I’ve seen. Would love to know which this one is! Thanks

    Fantastic stone in the garden

    Nice to write for the first time in this forum. I accidentally found this stone in my garden. As I am a beginner, I have no information about this piece. Will you help me about the age and type of this fossil?

    Fossilized snails

    How old would these snails roughly be if that's even possible to answer through only image. I found 10 in total on the surface of a shale rock hill while at work. I don't know much about them at all. Anyone have any info?

    Gastropod found next to my house

    While doing yard work I came across this rock sitting between my house and the neighbors. After walking past it a few times I flipped it over to find this gastropod, which is the largest and most well preserved I've found so far! I haven't found a genus or species yet, so feedback is highly appreciated, but I wanted to share it as a reminder as to what you can find even in your literal backyard

    snail and ?

    I dug these up last week in East GA. This is a well known site to collect 'Savannah River Agate' but it's not agate, it is chert. Almost every piece I have has some white material adhering to the chert that to me resembles coquina. I'm curious as to what the object on the 006 picture is. I think the object in the two fossil pictures is a turritella snail but I'm not real sure.
  14. Hello and thank you for a wonderful forum. I've found a stone in our garden and what looks to be an ammonite??? I possibly might be wrong, but hopefully someone can enlighten me. One side of the stone has a very clear spiral pattern and the other side seems to have multiple spiral patterns. Could you kindly assist? Would be very grateful for any advice on what it is and whether it's a common fossil or not. Thank you so much.
  15. I bought this opal as a boulder wood fossil from Australia. I see that it has a few snails and possible a piece of a bone (the first image). it is a microscopic image. The length of the specimen is about 3 cm. Thank you!

    Gastropod ID Simi Valley CA

    Found this Gastropod fossil in Simi Valley CA I know it’s Eocene. I was thinking Natica but not sure. Can anyone help ID.

    Gastropods or tube worms?

    Found these weird spirals in this chunk of agatized rock. Devonian from Bradford beach in Milwaukee. Thanks!
  19. I have come across these 2 fossils whilst digging a trench in work, I'd be grateful if anyone has any information for me, these where in the same rock/stone. Thanks Also I'll get better photos when home.

    Snails in Petrified Wood

    I found a piece of petrified wood that looks very similar to this that has sap and a couple tiny snails eating the sap from what it looks like. I polished a small section of it and it’s like a mirror graphite color. Anyway, I can post some images here soon if anyone is still around and interested to see. Really just looking to learn more about it if possible!

    color patterns

    Today I did some pics of a huge piece of rock from the famous (today closed, forbidden to dig...) basalt-pit Weitendorf near Graz in Austria. It was miocene vulcanism covering sweetwater-sediments containing lot of snails, shells, rarely crabs and other fossils. Some of the snails are preserved with color patterns, but it is rare. So, when I did the pics and worked on them last hour I found two of them. One is Natica tigrina millepunctata, I think this gots the name "millepunctata" due to the lots of dots Size is approx. 2 cm, small one, but perfect!

    Port Huron, Michigan trip

    I drive 8 hours with a friend to a location he remembers from his childhood as yielding a lot. Oh boy it did. 100% worth the drive. Lake Huron, among the agates, pyrite, yooperlite, has some extraordinary Devonian fossils. All fossils were collected from the beach of his family’s property except for the fenestelid bryozoan, which was found at a gas station on the way there. please enjoy this collection of gastropods, petoskey stones, various tabulate corals, crinoids, stromatoporoids, bivalves, Brachiopods, tenteculites, horn corals, an unidentified agatized fossil in jasper matrix, and a pudding stone I felt like showing off too. Thanks! I highly recommend the area.

  25. I usually take Bobbi fishing on Labor Day, but the fishing has been tough lately on my home lake. I thought maybe I could find a better fossil bite. But my usual spots are too high water and/or too muddy, especially with Bobbi coming along. So I decided to make a drive to west Texas. We stopped and had a nice breakfast on the way, then drove on to a site that is Finis Shale. We hunted it long enough to gather up quite a bit. Here is the first snail I spotted, an ammonite piece, and Bobbi on the hillside above the outcrop.
