some of my fossil collection


Recommended Posts

Hi guys. These are a few quick shots I took just to show some of my fossils, I mainly go after smaller stuff so I can keep more in a small space. The shark teeth and teeth in matrix are all stuff I dug here in Bakersfield around shark tooth hill and ant hill area. Miocene epoch. The others are things Ive bought or traded for. The megs I did not find, the sea mammal bones and such I dug, but it would take me forever to post it all in detail sorry. Ive got piles of matrix and shell concretion material in the yard on the benches too lol.

I see Southern would like us to use photobucket when possible, I will work on that when I get time. Here are some things for now. Thanks for looking. Ive got more and better pics. Just given a quickie. I often buy a lot of fossils and sell some to support my hobby. I may post them here for sale once I get permition, hope you enjoy the pics. post-25319-0-54641100-1303150762_thumb.j

Hi Jason-

That's quite a collection you have. Really nice trilobite on matrix. Did you find that yourself? Also see ammonite and orthoceras from Morocco in the last row. Thanks for posting.

Steve

the only stuff I dug is the shark teeth and sea mammal material from this area in Bakersfield, excluding the megs and a few of the dark gray teeth from Calvert cliffs. Ive got lots of shark teeth in matrix I dug. A lot of the other stuff I purchased or traded for, sometimes I will buy fossil lot and keep what I want and sell the others, some things I see it just cant live without so I just grab it lol. Their were two matching femur bones from an ice age alligator on ebay I wanted, I thought I made my max bid correct, watched it for weeks, then lost it by 50 cents because they said the server messed p or something or I didnt do it right lol, I almost ate my laptop.

Thanks for the kind post.

:whoope: Great collection--I have quite a few displayed in my living romm but I do like'm big and toothy-thanx for the pix-John

yeah Im not bad for an amateur lol, doesn't compare to most collections but I love it, like I said before if I get a fossil lot to go after a few things I want, I sell a few, then get to keep a few without loosing my butt, and I try to get others like my little cousins and other kids into things like this instead of being bored and goin out tagging and such. Some think its quite nerdy, fossils and rocks and all, but how can someone not think its awesome to have things from extinct animals we never will get to see in person. Big and toothy lol, Im scared.

Nice elrathia kingii trilobite, from the Wheeler Shale deposit. Have you ever visited the CA trilobite location out there?

You know I read something about a spot in the desert? Someplace I cant remember but it seemed like I remember them saying you can keep one item and thats it, which is fine I guess but visually and just to get to feel the area I wonder is it worth the trip, Im not sure, do you know more about it? Maybe you are speaking of someplace Ive never heard of?

Hi Johnno-

Terrific looking Priscacara from the Green River formation,Wyoming. Brought back memories of my only trip there back in the 80's. Found a few small Priscacara and a large Phareodus Testis. Cost a fortune to have it prepared but well worth it.

Thanks for posting..

Don't feel intimidated, I was just offering up some eye candy. You've got a great collection there, stick with it mate. I love the graphic, I got a little chuckle out of that one.

Here's a couple more, not spectacular, just to keep the blood flowing.

Cheers

Johnno
