Thanks. It has quite a few in it. but most are hidden by parts of the rock it self.

I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days attack me at once.

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

Looks related to Pectin, as in the Shell petrol sign

I'm a newbie here. I've been fascinated with rocks and fossils since childhood. I can't help but collect interesting looking rocks when I'm out exploring. Found a few amazing fossils on the weekend so decided to step it up a little and see what I can find out about them on the net. Got myself a fossicking licence and signed up here this morning.

Here's just a few photos of my finds. The large solo shell was found by a friend after I started showing them my finds. Dodgy cheap phone photos sorry. Didn't have my camera on me. Would LOVE to know what I was looking at.

600+m above sea level.
300+km from nearest coastline as the bird flies... except birds don't fly in straight lines that far, do they?
Private property. With permission. Left all in place.

I went to a garage sale about 3 weeks back and on walking up the driveway I noticed a tree-planter bag on the side of the drive and ignored it, wondered a little bit but continued on into the garage area, found some tools and wandered back out, went over to the bag and noticed it was full of fossils and druze, then a voice yelled out, "sorry, that has just been sold" as the proud owner was reversing his ute into the driveway. If only I had have looked at it when I first noticed it. Bumma!

Afew nice imprints of shells and what looks like ginkgo leaves that saved an otherwise unproductive prospecting trip for gold today. At least the old river left me something interesting.

I forgot you found that, very nice mate. Sure does make you wonder when you get seashell fossils at that altitude.

It was below high tide when the fossils were deposited.

I don't know what those two weird looking things are, but it looks like one's winking at you, and the other one's asleep! lol

Ha yeah they do! I just did a bit of research on them, think they are sea urchin echinoids, about 20 million years old!

Those things are sea potatoes! We still find fresh ones on the beach in northern Tassie. Related to starfish and sea urchins.

Found this the other day out bush walking with the kids.
The area had a few fossils, but all were water worn as they are in an old creek bed.
