Anybody here like to collect fossils? I'm planning on getting some nice Ammonite, Trilobite, Leaf, and Fish fossils. I plan on getting a Mammoth molar in the future

How do you even find fossils?

well you can just buy fossils online some of them are pretty cheap, but there are lots of places especially in Europe where you can find them pretty easily. You can find them in quarries, roadcuts, and other sedimentary rock deposits

I am very pleased to find a fossil thread, I love collecting and looking for fossils (also rocks are cool). I sometimes travel to Belgium (2 hour drive) and near Antwerp are a lot of sites where Neogene shark teeth can be found. I've found lots of cool C. hastalis specimens, a few broken megs, and 1 intact meg. The place also has a lot of fossil glycymeris shells and fossil whale bones. Haven't been for a while because the border is closed due to covid, but can't wait to go out hunting again! If this gets any attention I'll try to take some nice pictures later and post them here

By the way I forgot to mention,
Sometimes I go to a nearby beach and find Pleistocene fossils. So far I've found a 30 cm part of a mammoth tusk and a fossil horse molar

Holy crap thats awesome! Its a little hard to find fossils where I live (Brooklyn doesnt really have fossils). The fossils I have coming soon are mainly from Germany, Morocco, and Utah. Got a pleistocene leaf fossil, some green river formation fish fossils and some spino teeth/shark teeth. To be honest im more interested in Mammilian fossils

Had no clue that there were meg teeth in Belgium. Also, that's insane that you found a shark vert there, were they with the teeth? Also, that horse molar is really nice. Possibly a Hipparion?

There's actually lots of meg teeth in the Berchem formation in Belgium. The way I find them is by sifting through soil, ex situ, so there's no way of telling if the vert and teeth belonged together. I think the molar is Equus caballus.

There's a big fossil site in Buffalo NY, they have a big lake and fossils embedded in the surrounding rock: ammonites, teeth and the like.
