    Agatized bone?

    Found in the Cle Elum, Washington area. This bone was found in the river, appears to be agatized. Would love to know if anyone could identify it. I wold imagine it’s a type of digit. Thank you in advance.
  2. From Woodbine formation, picked it because it looked like maybe something other than typical weird concretion, still does, but when I looked at little protrusion I saw what looks like part of jaw and something else. Had a heck of time trying to clear pictures, two teeth are visible and looks like rest broke off maybe. I'm guessing Enchodus?

    Quartz on fossil bone?

    This weekend as I was out rockhounding for quartz crystals I found this interesting piece. It looks very much like bone to me. Any insight or information would be appreciated. I will add more pics in the comment section. Thank you!

    Bone Fragment

    I found this in one of the creeks (bayou) here in southwest Mississippi. I have found a number of mastodon parts in the same. The most noticeable feature is a curved channel, much like that of a tooth canal. Does anyone know what part of what beast if might have belonged to? Thanks in advance.
  5. Hello, I found some fossil teeth on a friends ranch in Eastern Oregon and was hoping for some help with ID. The area has been described as Mascall Formation (16 Ma) from the Miocene, however there aren't any detailed geologic maps of the region and I suspect some areas may be closer to the Pliocene. The teeth were found as float material from several places. I think #1 or #2 may be Merychippus or Pliohippus (horses) and #4 may be Equus (horse). #1-3 were all found in the same general area and I am fairly confident it is Mascall Fm (Miocene). However, #4 was found in another area and appears to
  6. Find this laying on top of Pierre shale out cropping as if it was dropped by bird or came out of above matrix. I tried putting a tip of it into vinegar and did not fizle but it did degrade the bone and made it soft so it would kind of fall into powder pieces when scraped. I tried burning the tip of it but it did not burn might have been because it was wet from the vinegar. What could it be? Thanks!
  7. Found in East Feliciana Parish, Louisiana. Looks like it may be a spine bone but am unsure. Maybe even carved into? Any help appreciated.
  8. Hi everyone, I found what looks like bones fossils in a beach that has plant fossils from the Pensilvanian, mostly ferns. I see one smaller bone and a larger partial bone with the ball joint. They are both in the same block. Bone looking mineralization or fossil? If those are fossil bones I would assume some large land or amphibious animal to coexist with ferns. Hope someone can shed some light. Thank you, Marcos smaller bone larger partial bone back of the rock

    Is this a bone?

    Hello everyone! Just yesterday by a river in south central Indiana I found this. It did not look like a normal rock so I decided to keep it. I think it is a bone, but I cannot tell what kind of bone it is or how old it is. Is it a bone and if so, what kind?

    Bone identification

    I found this bone in my yard while clearing out trees. One end has been cut. I don’t know if it’s fossilized or not and I don’t know what it came from. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
  11. StacyLee

    Found on Ponte Vedra Beach, FL

    Slightly resembles a tooth, but can’t be. I might think some sort of vertebrae but it has no hole for the spinal cord.

    Bone material from Seven Stars?

    I have a fossil from Seven Stars (Mahantango Formation, Givetian of the Devonian) that is shiny and looks like some fish material I have. However, I am not an expert on bones and could use some help. Is this bone, and if not, what is it?

    Fossilized Bone or rock?

    I found this in the Wyoming mtn range, western WY. It’s really heavy and feels like rock. Looks like bone? thanks for the help!

    Purse state weird bone fossil id

    here are some stuff that I found in the aquia formation over the weekend. this button is weird to me, my gut tells me it might be a vert, but it could also be a fish tooth perhaps? this is a weird one, it looks like a Galeocerdo tiger shark, but i havent read anything of these existing at the Aquia formation, much less finding them at purse. bone fragments? would it be possible to tell if its reptile bone? this bone is interesting because it has some underside of its surface still intact. it almost reminds me of

    Deer leg bone??

    I got this from a fossil pack that says it’s from Florida. I think it may be some kind of deer leg bone but I’m probably wrong. Any help would be appreciated, thanks!
  16. Found a peculiar bone in the upper HSCF this weekend and am unsure of what it is. I occasionally find marine material, but for the most part the area is all terrestrial dinosaur fossils. What could it be?
  17. Hi all. This specimen is advertised online as a dinosaur metacarpal from Taouz. I don't know much about Maroccan dinosaur bones, but I wouldn't be surprised if this bone a complete fake, composited or heavily restored (some areas appear very smooth) item. Pictures are pretty bad, but it is all I have got. What do you think? If it is real, would it be possible to id it to some level? Thanks!

    Found at low tide on the Maine Coast (an unlikely place to find fossils, apparently). Approximately 3 inches longest side. Looks a bit like the dinosaur bone I've seen from Utah, except there aren't any dinosaur fossils in Maine. Any thoughts are appreciated. Thanks!

    Dinosaur bone?

    Hello all, Recently on a trip to Alberta I received this in a museum. It was labelled as a dinosaur bone, but not further information. Would anyone be able to provide a clearer picture? Thanks!

    South Jersey Beach Finds

    I hope everyone is having a great summer. I was walking on the beach the other day and for the first time I found a piece of bone. I have been walking this beach for the past 5 years and have never found a piece of bone. It is 3 inches long and at its widest point it is one inch. Hopefully it is IDable. I have no knowledge of bone material at all so any feedback would be greatly appreciated. I also happened to find a shark tooth. I believe it is a lower Carcharhinus plumbeus (Sandbar Shark) 13mm. It is a great color and is serrated. Also the root and blade is thin/flat. That is

    Is this bone impression?

    A few weeks ago I went along AA Highway here in Kentucky and collected a number of mortality plates from the side of the road. I had cleaned up this plate and had it sitting to the side as I tried to figure out how I was going to display it. One of my cats knocked it over last night and split off a chunk that exposed this concretion looking thing that was hidden beneath the top layer of crushed brachiopod shells. Unfortunately when I picked it up to examine it, the top of this concretion looking thing fell off. It sent little fragments everywhere. When I looked back to the main part of the mor
  24. Hello! I've had this piece in my collection for a while, and for the longest time I thought it was a bone. It's very heavy, more so than my other rocks this size. It also has a bone-like appearence. Any idea if this is indeed a bone or what it could be? I know this is a fossil forum and not a rock one, but if this is just a rock, any idea what it is and why it looks like that? And why is it so heavy? Thank you!
  25. Hello, I am currently on a cross country road trip with my family. Yesterday I was jogging through the desert Near Carlsbad , New Mexico and discovered what is obviously a bone but seems to be fossilized. It feels more like stone than a bone. I was curios If anyone knows what it could potentially be. I am a Middle School History teacher from NJ and would love to use it in my classroom if I had more information. Thank you in advance
