    MORE FOOTPRINTS (from the Permian)

    So a few months ago I traveled to El Paso, in search of some trackways from dinos and Permian amphibians. My trackways collection has been lacking for the better part of my whole life so I decided to go get some. If you haven’t already seen them, I’ll include them here: Now how could I possibly get new footprints if I’m all the way in DC? Well, I was doing some cleaning with a toothbrush on this exact rock and to my amazement, I started seeing little footprints in the stone. Knowing that I didn’t see them before, I freaked out and almost had a heart attack. There are now 9 differ

    Are these tracks??

    My husband purchased this landscaping rock in a pallet from a Bath/Bethlehem, PA area supplier about 20 years ago. Most of the supplier’s stones are from Pennsylvania. I’m guessing this is sandstone??? I’ve been staring at this rock for sometime and before I place it back, I wanted to get some opinions if anyone sees any type of tracks on this rock? I feel like my fingers fit in the specimen very nicely. Can’t tell if I’m seeing 3, 4 or 5 “toes” ? Maybe I’m just an imaginative newbie. Thanking anyone in advance who looks at these photos.

    Permian tracks from NM

    I found some more Permian tracks in New Mexico and I think they’re probably related to a Temnospondyl amphibian. I have the first track I found from this place here, but I also found one with 4 tracks in the rock that I’m fairly certain are some of the best I’ve found in a while. : Here are those tracks. Now something cool I noticed on this one is there is a track I circled here: because it pokes out on the other side, like this right here: I’ll also give you guys a close up of the ot

    Texas and New Mexico Dino tracks

    Wow is all I can say. I cannot believe what I have managed to find this week alone. I went to Texas for a vacation, and I’m coming out with some of my best fossils (in my opinion) I’ve found this year. I came here hoping to score some trace fossils of what once lived here, and score some, I did! Since there are two different time zones, and 4 different types of fossils found, I’ll split them up based on environment, and time. With marine fossils going first and tracks going second. Permian first, and Cretaceous second. I’ll do a picture of the whole haul and then we’ll get started. I also was

    ID help

    Hello I found this piece of sandstone along the Athabasca river just south of Fort McMurray, Alberta, Canada. Since it’s sandstone I’m assuming it came from either the Mcmurray (late barremian or early Aptian) or Grandrapids (Albian) formation although my geology skills are not great. I tried to do some googling on what it could be but I found no results since I couldn’t be specific enough since I don’t really know what I’m doing. Any ideas? I attached an image of the location for fun that I took a while before I found the rock. I found it to the right of the creek tha

    Alabama Trackway

    Went back for the final piece today. After thinking about it all night I knew I wanted to add it to the collection. Thanks to @FossilsNS for his help. this is a another alabama coal mine fine but not the same as the ferns I posted. Beautiful trackway with all the little prints going across it. This is awesome since this was made by something that was alive 300 million years ago.
  8. Here is something from last week's virtual SVP conference... my colleague and I made the news, and not for our use of banned words. https://www.livescience.com/pterosaurs-walked-in-rain.html?fbclid=IwAR0fn9ovHHOHdCcuc0P0tdYJNi0E7D_KULlPv7ajP2KngC-Yc4LMHaJ3asg

    Possible tracks in rock arizona?

    Good day all. I'm new here so let me introduce myself. I'm Robert, an amateur gold prospector, fisherman and lots more. I have found nothing too interesting during my gold panning adventures well not for an untrained gold fevered eye anyways but have found tons of modern aged bones that looks old at least a few hundred years old. Anyways now since thats out of the ways I was driving through Arizona when I reached the top of the hill at the sitegreaves national forest sign off of 260. I pulled over to let my semi truck cool down and chose to hike a bit. I sat down on a rock and foun

    Union Chapel Mine

    New to the site and have found a lot of odds and ends over the years, more by accident then out on hunts. But now wanting to get some of my grand kids into fossil hunting. So here is my question. Can you hunt for fossils at the Union Chapel Mine? If not is there any old mines you can hunt in Alabama? Thanks

    Possible trackway?

    Formation: Thaynes Fm. NOT Nugget Sandstone. Age: Early to Middle Triassic I’ve got a real brain puzzler here. I believe it is a trackway given the regular spacing and exact same prints but I don’t know what would have made it. I’ve put the north arrow to point out a third partial track. What do you think?

    Dinosaur tracks in Dallas, Texas?

    Howdy, all. Apologies for the lack of specificity; I'm an amateur fossil hunter and am not familiar with all the terms just yet. I was recently looking for inoceramus clams in the bed of White Rock Creek when I noticed some strange depressions in the limestone. They were roundish (some with a hint of a triangular shape), around two feet in diameter, and spaced in a pretty even pattern along the creekbed. The more I thought about it, the more they seemed to resemble the tracks found at the bottom of the river at Dinosaur Valley State Park in Glen Rose. My questions are: Is an
  13. Hello dear members, Today I'd like to talk about my latest fieldtrip, to the Late Triassic tracksite of Zone, Lombardy prealps, Italy. However, I'd like to make it clear that it involved no fossil collecting, because of the scientific interest of the site and of italian laws, that prevent (almost) any form of this activity. I know there is the "Fossil sites" section, but I thought that here my post would have reached more people. I apologize in case this is not allowed. Let's not waste any more time! Italy is quite well know for its tracksites, in particular those bearing dinosaur t

    Possible Triassic tracks

    Mercer County, New Jersey, USA. Hello, I recently found these two specimens and was wondering if they look good for Triassic tracks. If so, I heard they are very difficult to attribute to a certain species but any information or leads on that would be greatly appreciated (or should I just stick to the Cretaceous streams ). Note - these are NOT from the spot I found my last trackway (#5 on link below), I've just been obsessed lately with finding similar spots close to home. As always, all help is greatly appreciated! -Frank
  15. Listing for dimetrodon manus track from el pueblo, NM. Five claw tip impressions but these are the only pics provided. Any thoughts?
  16. 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.
  17. Hi friends, I have several of these fossils. I think they look like some sort of worm fossil but can't find anything on the internet similar for comparison. I really don't think it is trilobite tracks because it is deeper. Sorry, I could only get 2 of my pictures to upload. Thanks so much, I would really appreciate any info.

    Who's Permian feet made these?

    If anyone is familiar with Permian tracks, can anyone ID these? All I can tell is that they appear to be synapsid tracks, but not Dimetrodon. I'm assuming that means Edaphosaurus is out too, but that's all I can figure. the ONLY details still known are that they're Permian tracks from somewhere in Arizona. There's no more information available. There's 4 plates... 1-pic 1 2-pics 2,3,4 3-pics 5 4-pics 6,7
  20. Hello everyone. I am an incredibly novice fossil hunter from Pennsylvania. From where I live, it is heavy Carboniferous territory. One of the items on my bucket list is to eventually find something from a temnospondyl, even if it is nothing more than a trackway or even better - a bone fragment! Would anyone be willing to share with me advice on what to look for / or what has helped them in finding anything from a Temnospondyl or Lepospondyl? Do they appear more in certain rocks than others? I live in the Pittsburgh area, near where Fedexia was discovere

    Fossil Tracks?

    Not sure if these are fossil tracks or not. There is more than one and they are all similar. Maybe some kind of sea creature digging? They were steps to a creek so I can’t place a certain age to them. The age around here is Late Cretaceous so sometime around that time is most likely. Denton, Texas, USA.
  22. Made an incredible discovery at home tonight when I noticed tiny baby dinosaur tracks about only 5.1mm long on a ripple slab I had found. I've never seen baby footprints so small before, so I'm amazed. No wonder I didn't notice them for nearly two weeks after I had found them this month! Since there seems to be a partial adult on the edge it makes me wonder if this dinosaur was walking with its new born baby.
  23. I have started recently being able to hunt dinosaur footprints and while I don't want to cover the ones that are naturally visible I may want some of the lower quality or hard to see tracks to stand out. Anyone prepare tracks themselves or know of a good clear coating? I've heard of rustoleum but I am unsure if it's paint or spray I should be using.
  24. In St George Utah a massive dinosaur track was discovered (and actually is probably all over the entire city). But the focus today is not on the spectacular tracks but the teeth. They had a few on display but I was told they found a lot, enough for a cabinet full. This is Early Jurassic. Here are a few example of a dilophosaurid type dinosaur Here is an example of smaller theropod.
  25. This is another update from one of my older posts where we questioned whether or not my dinosaur track slate is authentic or fake. A reliable friend helped me out with this mission. A lot of controversy was behind this fossil. This thick paint/polish applied to these rocks makes it very difficult to determine what is actually is. I decided to completely start from scratch and remove all paint. When I purchased these tracks, I knew little to nothing about these matters...Now I want to share this post to help anyone else who is interested in buying a dinosaur track online to avoi
