    Help identify Wisconsin fossil

    I found this interesting piece the other day and am looking for help determining what it is. To me it looks like a frog in the mouth of a snake. I appreciate any and all input on this. Thank you

    Help identifying these pieces

    Need help identifying these fossils. They were found on beach in North Florida. Only 2 in my collection I cant seem to figure out. Help is appreciated! The 1st one is oval shaped and has to 2 close holes in the center of one side. flipped over the holes are on the outside of the circle. it is small so its hard to see in photo. The 2nd one I have found quite a few of these. (the one in my hand) They get from this size to about as large as a dime. The have a long pointed ridge down the center of it, and the underside kind of bowls inward.
  3. I’m lost on this one. It’s stone/fossilized with what appears to be a bone type interior. Found in Venice, Florida while snorkeling. Any help is appreciate.
  4. Hello, Now this is a partial, but I am hopeful someone can recognise it. It is supposedly carcharodontosaurid from Laos. I am guessing that could make it Siamraptor, since Gres Superiors has the same species as the Khok Kruat. Unfortunately, a partial tooth. And no serrations on mesial, which I guess hinders the identification. But I am hoping the base and what remains may be enough? Or would labelling it as "unidentified theropod" more more appropriate than carcharodontosaurid? Thanks
  5. I know I'm not the only one that doesn't live near good fossil deposits, which means that i'm not the only one that has to buy or trade fossils from time to time to build the collection. I thought it would be fun to have an ongoing thread to share our latest great score that we didn't personally find in nature, a thread to share your latest fossil purchase or trade. Let's see what you found at the local fossil show, online or anywhere else other than in the ground.

    What is this material?

    Hi everyone, Collected this one quite a few years ago and have always been curious about its odd material and color. It's quite smooth and does not look like any of the other fossils I found there. So i'm curious if anybody knows what this material is and perhaps how it is formed. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Possible Tooth From Denton County Texas

    I found this suspected tooth in the Grayson formation in Denton County 3 weeks ago. I have no clue on this one. What do you think?

    Does anyone know what this might be?

    Another one of my rocks that has an imprint of something. Found in Northwest Missouri near Grand River. Any ideas? It's about 5" x 4" x 1.5". Pic with flash and 2 without flash.

    Wisconsin Trilobites?

    Hey all! I'm new to this site, but I've been interested in fossils all my life. I kind of joined this forum on a whim since I've been doing a lot of internet surfing recently. I'm on a quest of sorts to try and find any trilobite remains in my state, (I live in Green Bay, WI) but I'm not having much luck. I've been all over the internet looking for any known collecting sites in Wisconsin. I'm well aware of places like Fossil Park in Sylvania, Ohio, and I'd absolutely love to have a chance to visit Penn-Dixie in northwest New York, but I don't really have the time, so I've been trying to f
  10. The title says it all! Let's see all of you guys' favourite fossil of the week! Try to keep it to one per week per user, but, hey, some fossils are worth screaming about! They can belong to you, or anyone else! Feel free to have a nice small lecture to us about this week's coolest prehistoric creature, and teach us all the ins and outs! Lotsa pictures will go down a treat... I look forward to seeing you guys' best!

    Niobrara Chalk Trip

    Hello all! I managed to secure access to some private land in Gove County somewhere near to Monument rocks. The peoperty has plenty of the chalk canyon type outcrops to explore and I couldn't be happier! I won't make it out there this summer but hope to next summer. I had a few questions that I hoped you all could help with, or point me in the right direction before I head out there. One, I know that the chalk is notoriously difficult to determine stratigraphy in. The chalk I have access to is both higher than and lower than the capstone on Mon

    Gerastos Trilobite?

    Hey all I picked up this trilobite really cheap from a seller I trust but I've seen him make mistakes before so I'll get the opinions from experts here! Is the ID correct? Can you spot any repairs? Under UV there is something at the back of the trilobite, I can also spot a crack in the matrix so it might be a splodge of glue. Based on the price I paid, I assume these are really common.... or did I find a diamond in the rough or the preservation just isn't as good as some others in this genus? Seller said Gerastos 360 million years old Morocco

    Is this a fish?

    Hi everyone, my son found a very cool fossil today which I think is a fish but wondered what others think? thanks Brad
  18. Hi everyone! I'm new to fossil hunting and I found a few interesting rocks underneath Sea Cliff Bridge near Wollongong in Australia. There was a lot of coal in the area for context. I will attach some photos of the rocks I found, I'm particularly interested in the small white (quartz??) lines intersecting the black part of the stone. Any help would be hugely appreciated! Thanks
  19. I'll keep it in my collection, so I want to know what ID for dinosaur tooth I got so I can identify the correct ID in my collection. Please help, I really don't know what ID. Thank you .

  21. Good morning again!...Been working on this little piece I found in Pennsylvania Winterset limestone in Kansas City, Missouri. Before I go any further, can anyone help with what it is? If just a shell fragment, I"ll stop and add it to my growing rock pile! :).. thanks! Bone
  22. Can someone please tell me if this is a small piece of petrified wood that I found today? Thank you.
  23. I found this yesterday on a beach in England it's almost like fairy wings wrapped around a rock any one ever seen anything like this before? And knows what it is

    What kind of fossil is this?

    Is wthis a coral fossil, a worm rock or something else? Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
  25. Here is a rock/fossil from Moffat co. Colorado USA. Any ideas if it is a bone fossil? If so, what might it be from? It was found on the surface of a very rugged old road with no other similar looking rocks in sight. I did find a fossilized shell not far away (20 m).
