    Cyprus Sea Urchin

    Presented for discussion is my 1975 find from the southern cliff side Cyprus coast about 100 meters above sea level. Specimen is larger than a baseball but not as big as a softball. Although it has survived seven household goods moves I would like to stabilize it before any further deterioration. I will check the posts on stabilization but any expert comments would be appreciated !
  2. 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.

    Stumped

    I found this oddity on Point Pleasant Beach, NJ last weekend. The 5-point symmetry suggests an echinoderm but the black, phosphatic preservation suggests anything but. Any thoughts?

    Found in Belgium

    Can someone please help me identify these? I found them in a gravel in Belgium.

    Is it real fossil or just a rock

    I have found this and i would like to know if it's a real fossil or just a rock.

    Batoid Vertebrae

    From the album: Delaware Fossils

    Vertebrae from either a stingray or skate. Found in close proximity to each other at a site where such things are rare, so probably from the same animal. L:arger one is about 3cm wide. Found at Reedy Point, C and D Canal, Delaware. Maastrichtian.

    Partial Eagle Ray Dental Plates?

    Hi, I found these 2 unusual little pieces on a Tampa Bay beach in Florida. They are roughly 1 x 1 inches. At first I thought pottery shards or some seashell mold and put them in a box. I just saw a photo that they resemble, labeled Ray Dental plate. (brown photo) I attached 3 photos front and back of my specimen. What do you think?

    Fused Oysters

    From the album: Delaware Fossils

    Two Exogyra cancellata shells from the Cretaceous spoils of Reedy Point, Delaware. Although Exogyras typically detached themselves from their anchorage while still very small - about 2-3 cm - these two animals continued to live and grow together. The lower valve is about 10 cm on the long axis.

    belemnite patho

    From the album: Delaware Fossils

    Belemnitella americana from the Maastrtichian of Delaware. This one is strangely rounded and scarred. Looks like something bit it and it lived long enough to heal over.

    Petrified Wood ID

    I started collecting smaller chunks of petrified wood but sometimes find these larger chunks that I believe are also petrified wood. I would just like confirmation to make sure I am not misidentifying specimens.
  12. Hello Fossil Hunters, I haven't been on in awhile and missed the interaction with this group. I recently found an unusual find at a Tampa Bay Beach in Florida. Looking at the shape I immediately thought I had a worn bone fossil vs a seashell cast. The top view of the spur measures 1 3/8" x 1". The base platform which resembles an osteoderm measures 1 1/4"x7/8". I checked my Florida Fossil book and it resembles a Giant Tortoise Leg Spur. What do you think?

    Unknown fossil/tooth? Maryland

    I was going through my unknown fossil bits and thought this looked like the main cusp of a cow shark (Paleocene). My problem is....I can’t remember if I found this at Douglas Point or at flag pond (this is my only fossil that got mixed up)

    Is this an egg?

    Any clue what I have here? I think it's granite but have been told it's some kind of egg
  19. Hi guys, Brand new to the forum, but excited to be here. I found this in an area where water used to be very high all around me. In fact in a great deal of Thornton Co. In this case I am around the Niver trail. I am not so much the expert in geological terms so I will forego the effort in outlining this, but I will say the rocks around are very interesting. A lot of petrified wood, some form of molten rocks and evidence of extreme heat, has made for some interesting mineralization many of my finds. I look forward to your advice and have much more to show and hopefully lear

    Fruit pod or something?

    OK, so once again, I found something today. I would like an ID on it. It’s about the size of my thumbnail, looks like a piece of a prehistoric fruit or something. I honestly don’t know what it is. It looks like it was once attached to a prehistoric plant, you can see in one of the pictures. I’m not sure what it is. Any help can be appreciated on this. Found in Boise, Idaho. It is cloudy right now so the light conditions are not best.

    Juvenile Pliosaurus tooth?

    Hey guys, I have this marine reptile tooth from the Ryazan region ,Russia. I was wondering what it could be, it’s really tiny at 6mm. It ressembles the morphology of plio teeth but I’ve never seen plio teeth that small. Hoping someone could help. Regards

    Ramanessin Bone Fragment?

    Out hunting on the Ram, came across this odd piece, my mind immediately jumped to a bone fragment of a large aquatic reptile, the holes in it are like nothing I've ever seen, and it feels lighter than a rock of similar size. So, I'm hopeful, any ideas or help would be awesome! Thanks guys!
  23. A few tips for getting better ID's. First, make the object you are trying to get an ID for be the central object of the photo. Not your hand. Put the object on a neutral colored background and photograph it as close up as possible. Then crop your pictures. Using your hand for scale is no good, we don't know how big your hand is. Make sure the photo is well lit and focused. Second, use a scale rule (preferably metric; millimeters and centimeters) we have members from all over the world. The U.S. is about the only country that does not use the metric system Coins for scal

    Prehistoric Whale Vertebrae?

    This is a fossil found near many sharks teeth in the Northern Neck of Virginia. It was found on the side of a cliff in Westmoreland County VA. Any help would be much appreciated!
  25. I'm looking for gar fossils, has anyone here got any they would be willing to sell?
