Where to look for fossil shells ?

 

Fossil shells are to be found at many, many localities throughout the world. Every  country has his own possibilities and problems. Generally speakingyou have to  study some literature and geological maps. Then try to contact a geologist,  palaeontologist or biologist in the country you chose to go to.You will be given good  local advise. If you can't get hold of such a person,you look for disclosures at  beaches,  in riverbeds, in clay-, sand- or gravel-pits. Look also for natural erosion  places on steep slopes, in gullies and ravines.
