  Hey Fossil Gang! I was exploring the forest near my dorm and found a small area where the ground had a sparse layer of tiny, white, spiral shells. I'm no expert but they didn't seem like snail shells, I could be wrong. I was wondering if anyone could give me some tips for this situation. What should I do? I thought I could start by collecting some of the surface level shells and maybe even dig around a bit. I imagine just the tiny shells would be pretty common but do y'all think there could be greater treasures laying in wait? What sort of basic equipment/tools should I use?

 

Any help would be appreciated! I'll post if I find something cool. :ammonite01:

Where are you going to school? It might help determine if the gastropod shells are from a current species or fossils from the past. Also a photo of the specimens would help us help you!!

and if you could post a few photos, we would have a much better idea of the shells and the situation.

Truth! I'll see about collecting some tonight and put em up. (Going to school at St.Olaf in Northfield, about 40 minutes south of Minneapolis) :ammonite01:
