If you live in that area , and dont know of ,or havent been to , there is a shop in Manns rd that has the most amazing fossils , gem stones and geods etc ,just like the stuff you would find in a museum. I spent over an hour in there ,in total awe of the treasures on show.

Sounds good, Will check it out soon. Another day to hurt my wallet...

Always best to buy fossils in person, so many fakes online nowadays... Especially fossils from from locations like Morocco.

Thought I would share this fossil I picked up on a motorbike trip.
It come from a couple of hundred kms inland of the great Australian bight, nowhere near water but has a few nice shells to see.
Location was along the Trans Australian Railway line near Forrest, WA. There were lots of other fossils in the rocks but being on a motorbike space was for essentials only lol
If anyone can identify anything I wold be interested, to me its just a couple of sea shells cool

Here is another one I also picked up while traveling on a motorbike trip. Once again limited space meant only the one tongue
Not sure whats in this fossil, several oval shape creatures.
I found this in outback south Australia around lake Torrens big_smile

hey mate, how big is the crab? I found one almost identical at Jervis Bay about 30 years ago, about the size of a nice mudcrab. I left it there, as I was backpacking out of a fishing spot, and at the time, the last thing i wanted in my pack was another 3 kg rock!

Here's a couple of plant fossils.
The first might be Cladophlebis, but I'm not sure. It was part of my Mother's collection.
The second was found by me in a quarry in Horn Road, Aspley, Brisbane in 1972. It's now a housing estate.

I have a fair few fossils. I might photo some more some time.

Could it be a crinoid stem Bazza? Have found a few small ones about.
