    Mazon Creek Collection

    I'll update this thread with my Mazon Collection over the next few weeks. With some good weather out yesterday, I managed to get my first fossil hunt in for the season and will post a report in this topic. I will be moving this upcoming summer which will put me even further from Mazon Creek so I have purchased a few pieces to fill in the genus/species I haven't found yet and will mention if I purchased a fossil. I still hold out hope to find some of these pieces I purchased eventually but will realistically be difficult if I only can make 1 trip a year. Fauna Tullimo
  2. Hello- My son and I recently found this Tully Monster. I am wondering what everyone's thoughts are on cleaning this, and what approach may be best? I have cleaned jellyfish and some other white calcified looking material from these types of concretions using vinegar for a few minute soak, but have heard that it may not be a good idea since it removes some of the material that helps define the imprint. The Tully we have was found in two different scenarios. The first image, the side was facing down in the dirt a the top of a hill. The second was found face up in a pi
  3. Hello all. Does anybody know the best way to preserve a 'Tully monster' specimen. I recall once reading that the surface often needs to be coated with a preservative against oxidizing, etc. One of my specimens has a tiny bit of red on the one eye, which I don't recall being there last year. Please see photos; advice deeply appreciated.

    Mazon Creek ID help?

    Hi all, Wondering if anyone can assist with IDing this fossil nodule from the Mazon Creek area. I think it’s a body fragment of a tully monster but not 100% by any means. I think there is an eye bar present so near the head area before the proboscis. Any help is greatly appreciated!

    The Tully Plushie

    While on a field trip to the Field Museum in Chicago I spotted this, and just couldn't pass up the opportunity to give my son a stuffed animal of an animal which I have an actual fossil of. Behold, the Tully Plushie. Trying to recreate my Tully fossil. But I oriented the eye bar the wrong way.

    Tully Monster Coloring Page

    I drew this coloring sheet to give out at an upcoming children's program I will be doing at the public library my mom works at. I have done two previous programs over the years on fossils and dinosaurs, but this time I am going to be concentrating on the fossils of Illinois. Of course, this includes our bizarre state fossil, the Tully Monster! The sheet features a Tullimonstrum front and center chasing after an Elonichthys, with a pair of Essexella making their way across the background. It's not the most scientifically accurate drawing, but I hope it will be fun to color! Feel free to downloa

    My Monster, Monster

    A fellow member and i went out to Mazon today. We decided instead of by land we would travel by sea today. I brought a canoe and it worked fantastic! We both found some good stuff (worms, ferns, possible insect, shrimp, sea cucumbers, etc). But i think this tops them all. I was thinking of just posting this in my "Mazon Creek Finds" thread, but i think it deserves it's own. Thanks for looking! My 8 3/8" 95% complete Tully Monster! Eye bar Unfortunately when the nod split it didn't split the cleanest, and it left a bunch of random spots on the piece. Does anyone know, could i ge
  10. Fossil hunting season at Illinois's Mazonia-Braidwood State Fish and Wildlife Area, the iconic Pit 11, runs from March to September every year. I didn't make it to the park at all last year, so I wanted to get out there on day 1 this year. I took the day off work and thankfully the weather cooperated- it was cloudy and in the 30s for most of the day. I picked up my rental car at 7:30 in the morning and hit the road for the 90 minute drive north. I wasn't the first one at the park, though- I saw a few other folks heading out on the trail with buckets in hand as I pulled into the pa

    Going to Mazon Creek! Tips?

    Hey everybody, I'm planning on going to do a day's worth of nodule collecting at Mazon Creek in a few weeks with a buddy of mine. Any tips on where to go? Also, anyone know of a hotel that's reasonably close to where we can start collecting? Thanks for any and all tips!

    Can someone help?

    I just got a supposed tully monster fossil from the ESCONI auction today and im worried it may not be what they said it was. I want to also open it up more but im scared on how to do it.

  16. This last weekend I was in Chicago for a short getaway and I had Saturday afternoon to myself. The weather was absolutely beautiful, so I decided to make my way down to the museum campus. I was able to get down to that portion of the lakefront in time to catch the tail-end of the Chicago March for Science, around 40,000 scientists and their allies rallying in support of science funding and science-based policy, and also in defense of the environment. It was a boisterous crowd of all ages and wonderful to see. The ending point of the March was right in front of the Field Museum of N

    Tully Monster Replica

    This my latest attempt at the newest version of a Tully. Cast in urethane plastic and airbrushed in acrylic paint.
  18. The discussion whether the "Tully monster" is a vertebrate or not is ongoing and the mystery still not resolved : link to the "pro" article on Nature: http://www.nature.com/nature/journal/vaop/ncurrent/full/nature16992.html and the "contra" article: THE ‘TULLY MONSTER’ IS NOT A VERTEBRATE: CHARACTERS, CONVERGENCE AND TAPHONOMY IN PALAEOZOIC PROBLEMATIC ANIMALS.pdf Have fun Thomas

    Mazon ID and Tully Monster

    Hello! Can you help me in understanding if this shrimp is a molt or an actual body fossil? What do I need to look for? And is the shrimp identifiable? On a separate note, is there any way to authenticate the signature on this Tully Monster, part of a package of supposedly Pit 11 fossils that I recently acquired?

    It Was A Tully Of A Sunday

    Hey folks, Yesterday another forum member and I hunted some "harder to reach" areas of pit 11. It was probably the most difficult hunt I've undertaken. Ever! My old bones are paying the price today. But I'm OK with that. . Anyway, I wasn't out of the canoe 5 minutes before I stumbled across this jewel. Its my first Tully to date. I looked eagerly for the other half. To no avail. Regardless, within ten feet of the open Tully if found an unopened nodule that has some serious potential for being, what may be, another Tully. Here are a few pictures. Thanks for looking, Rob

Original suggested retail price: $70? One tributary of the Illinois River has become an important landmark in the world of paleontology. Fossils are found along and within many waterways but they are almost always isolated shells, teeth, and bones and even these more durable elements are often worn down to unrecognizability. The miracle of this tributary, Mazon Creek, is that the remains became encased with
