    The Rio Puerco Valley

    The Rio Puerco Valley was my introduction to fossils...it immediately caught my attention...lit a match...became a place I am always eager to revisit...search...learn about... ...and in roaming it, have learned about myself. Many of my adventures in the Puerco are posted here, here...here and here...and here. From here on out, my excursions will be shared here. May you find happiness in your hunting. -P.
  2. Dear Fossilforum members, I was wondering if the echinoid on this piece of matrix is indeed a Gauthieria radiata and if so, does that appoint this fossil to the lower, middle or upper Turonian? The shark tooth is a Squalicorax falcatus and the piece was found in the Ardennes departement of France. I know the age of a few locations nearby, but the age of the location where this piece is from is nowhere to be found in literature. I also am not sure if I may say where it was (it took a lot of questioning to find out where it can from haha). Therefore I hope that the echinoid perh

    Ancyloceras ( with spikes )?

    I have several Heteromorphs but none have such large protrusions. Are these called horns? I worked on this for an hour trying to expose as much as possible, it's buried in bacculites. Found in shale in north Irving TX, inc. pic of other ammonites found there.

    Levnesovia transoxiana

    Stabilized with Butvar B-76; repaired using an unspecified cyanoacrylate. Identified by Dr. Alexander Averianov as a sacral vertebrae of a juvenile Levnesovia transoxiana. The specimen is either from Dzarakuduk or an excavation near the city of Uchkuduk many years back.

  7. It has been to long since we posted a fieldtrip, but the curent worldwide situation did hamper our fossil hunts. A few days before Chritmas the situation in France changed and we could again go to the beaches in the North for fossil hunts. The 24th we went to the "Grand Blanc Nez" to prospect the turonian boulders en hopfully score a few big ammonites. This time we were als prepared for big finds: we took a handcart with us, because the previous time we had trouble to bring a couple of ammonites back to the car due to their weight ( 2 km on foot with more than 30 kg of ammonites

  11. Hello forum members! With the new Coronavirus raging across the world, I thought it would be nice to start some kind of advent calendar, using my own Squalicorax collection. Everyday I will post one or multiple Squalicorax teeth from one location. Let's see what ends sooner, my collection or the virus outbreak. I will start with the oldest tooth from the Albian substage and end with the teeth from the uppermost substage; the Maastrichtian. The first one is the oldest and also one of the smallest teeth in my collection. Unfortunately it is so sma
  12. Back in July of 2009, I was crawling around an Upper Cretaceous Eagle Ford Formation (late Turonian) site that was exposed by recent excavations. There were many amazingly preserved marcasite / pyrite encrusted ammonites and other fauna to be found. However, one of 'gems' of that site was a beautiful, tiny regular echinoid. I was fascinated with it and I made additional discoveries that I wrote about in an article on The Fossil Forum. (early images) In trying to establish an identification, I checked with several experienced Texas collectors and none of them recognized it. When that h
  13. having been unable to go out a full day to search for fossils for several months due to health problems, thanks to a recent improvement I went yesterday about 100 km from my home to see a site where rudists were found. The first fossil encountered was a huge colony of cone-shaped bryozoans which had fallen and overturned in a depression. (can be 150kg?). I forgot to take my centimeter scale, so in the photos there is my foot, my hand or my fingers .... Then, I found a rock rich in small Exogyra and rare Rhynchonella. Finally, the rudists were there, in a wall (only for the
  14. Hi everybody! Today i wanna show you one of my dearest ammonites...Choffaticeras segne! Making a search by keywords in TFF, i found only three results for this species...so i decided to enlarge the number! Now i present you my Choffaticeras segne: it comes from Goulmima in Morocco, belongs to Turonian (Upper/Late Cretaceous), it is 19cm in height and 1.461kg in weight. This specimen has been polished in both sides, obviously. It's very decorative and it makes its good looking part in my living room. I love its external sutures, how do you call this kind of sutu

  17. Good tides and a promising weather forecast and we were ready to go for a trip to the French coast ( Cap-Blanc-Nez) High tide was set for 8AM, so we left around that same time, getting there when the tide was starting to go down giving us a whole day of opportunities to search. First stop was the beach of the “Grand Blanc Nez” with the Turonian cliffs. Since our last visit there, there have been high tides and multiple parts of the beach were cleared of the sand. The prospection of the loose boulders revealed for me a large Mamites nodosoides and a Morrowites wingi. I was especi

    Allegedly new fish species from Vallecillo

    Hello everyone, I saw this specimen for sale as a new species from the Vallecillo quarries. I haven’t seen something like this from this formation. Does anyone have any idea of what species might this be? The size of fossil is approximately 40 cms long. The size of the matrix is 63 cms * 43 cms. The pictures were not taken by me. Thanks everyone.
  19. Today I had a good time with fossil hunting at the Dakota formation (early Cenomanian) sites and Greenhorn formation (Cenomanian-early Turonian) sites in Ellsworth county, Kansas. Typical view of the local countryside, but still beautiful! I keep finding these weird vertebrae-like rocks, clustered in this particular site and not other sites. I suspect it's not vertebrae but I still can't figure this out yet. These mysterious vertebrae-like rocks...reminds me of shark centrum and crinoid stems but I don't think it's them. This site is Dakota forma

    Help w/ ID new fossil finds!

    Hello! I'm a pretty novice fossil hunter, so I look for things that stand out! Recently I found these in a span of about two weeks, I haven't seen anything like them before. The small ones all have a flat/facet on the posterior side, same teardrop shape, and the larger ones look like " big ears" to me, lol. I thought maybe iron concecretions at first, but the small ones look different, in that they are not "round". Ammonites? Reminds me of some of the pics posted of plesiosaur fossils, I have more pics, but the files are too big to post all at one time - I would really appreciate

    Upper Cretaceous oddity

    While out in the Puerco, I smacked open a concretion to find an unfamiliar pattern. Any thoughts or ideas are greatly appreciated. The specimen is from the Upper Cretaceous (Turonian) Carlile Shale. It is layered and each layer has this pattern. I currently do not have a measurement but will do so. Thanks for taking a look.

    Polish coprolite: shark?

    Hello all This summer I found this coprolite in the Odra quarry in Poland. I found around 6 of these but nothing else. The other members of the group found shark teeth and some other stuff. Mosasaur remains are also found there, but extremely rare. I know it's hard to assign coprolites to kind of animal, but is this what a shark coprolite would look like? Around 1 cm.
  25. This saturday the tides were ideal for a whole day of prospection at the foot of the chalk cliffs near Calais. We got there early in the morning when the water was going away from the cliffs. At the parking we were greeted by a veteran collector from this location, he took us along to the northern part of the site in search of big Turonian ammonites. A first for us since we've only collected more to the south in the cenomanian deposits. With his help we did find a couple of ammonites including a big specimen. around 1pm after lunch we parted ways and we went
