How do you even find fossils?
thats rad anon, i recently moved to FL but i dont really go outside with COVID except for work
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
I will take some pictures tomorrow in the daylight and post them here :D
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? >>14539
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.
we made a room for paleontology kino:
i once tried to find a fossil and it turned out to be a dead chicken skull
is it free or does it belong to anyone?
Had trilobite fossil as a kid, don't know what happened to it
fuck you, i stole it
what's a trilobite? are those that ancient bug thingy?
did you dig it yourself or was it given to you
