  1. Hi everyone, found this in a new jersey cretaceous creek. Looks like a partial enamel something but I'm not exactly sure what it can possibly be from, it interestingly has some very defined ridges on the least worn side. Very hard to catch the clearest pics to show the sharpest definition but I tried to get the best I could. Maybe this can be a clue to a potential id. Pictures of it with whiteish background are upside down.

    Gastropod or something else?

    Freshly found. Found in/very close to Needmore Formation near Petersburg WV. More sandstone than shale, but shale was just above. Lots of brachiopods nearby. Would love someone to tell me it's a rare ammonite or similar. Thoughts? ID help? Thank you.

    Petrified Wood - Carbonized?

    Hey Folks, We found this hunk this afternoon. Any idea why the piece of wood here in black is carbonized? It comes off when you rub it. Other pieces we found today are definitely fossilized, but this one is different. Any ideas? E & B
  4. This small fossil is from Chengjiang and was labelled as "Anomalocaris mouth" by seller. He's been wrong before and I'm rather skeptical about that interpretation. Any ideas, anyone?

    Fossil Tooth (some sort of shark?)

    Not too long ago I got some sort of tooth from a seller at a show. She inherited it from a family member (her mother, if memory serves) and believed it to be a megalodon tooth, but she doesn't specialize in fossils in the slightest, and it doesn't 100% look like the megalodon teeth I've seen before, plus I don't think she did extensive research because if it is indeed a megalodon tooth then I think I bought it for quite the steal. I've bought from her before, and I trust that she's not being maliciously dishonest, but I definitely want a more expert opinion. I'm certainly new to this realm and
  6. I just started learning about fossils and fossil hunting. Both of these were found in Big Brook. I think the larger one might be a deer bone? I'm not sure if the smaller one is even a fossil. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

    Calymene trilobite ID

    These are more trilobite segments, and one cephalon, from the Leighton Formation, Maine, silurian. I believe them to be the new species of Calymene trilobite that I found earlier, but am unsure. The first pictures are of the first specimen, numbers 1 and 2 being of the cephalon, and the third of a thorax segment that was underneath the cephalon (you can see the edges of it in picture 2): The next pictures are of new specimens. Number one and two are of a cephalon. Unfortunately, I was unaware of its existence until after it came out in multiple piece

    Judith River Ceratopsian Horn?

    I have this chunk of bone from the Judith River formation of Hill County, Montana, and I was wondering if this is a partial horn? It was found with some other small skull fragments, but this is the main piece. Does anybody more familiar with ceratopsian horns have any insight? It is 5.3 inches in length (I forgot a ruler picture, my apologies). Thanks in advance!
  9. I recently purchased this vertebrae which was sold as a mosasaur (Clidastes) vertebrae. I wasn't convinced that the vert was Mosasaur (or even marine reptile for that matter) in origin when I bought it, I simply bought it because I thought it was a nice looking vertebrae. But now I thought I might give it a shot to try and get an ID on this thing. It was found in the Gober Chalk, Austin Group, Gober, Fannin County, Texas, USA and dates back to the Campanian, Cretaceous (± 80 mya). I don't really know what the vertebrae could be honestly, I don't believe it to be Mosasaur in origin o
  10. Hi Everyone! I'm new to the site. I have been fossil hunting for just over a year. I would love if you could help Identify these 3 pieces. I labeled them with numbers and letters to help keep track of them. Thanks in advance for your insight.

    Florida Gastropod Identification Help

    Hello everyone, I found this gastropod along the Sanibel Causeway in Ft. Myers, FL. They were in a pile of shells being used for landscaping so I presume that the sediments came from a nearby quarry of ?Pleistocene age, possibly the Caloosahatchee Fm. Can someone help me verify and identify this fossil? Family Turridae? Thank you!
  12. Hello TFF, I purchased this relatively inexpensive specimen at Mineralfest this past fall, and I was wondering if anyone could tell me more about it. The seller informed me it could possibly be from Madagascar, but was transparent in admitting that she couldn't confirm for sure. It was with other pieces of petrified wood that were brown, but I was drawn to this one due to the red hues. I think it's agatized, and it looks "glassy," although there are too many impurities to shine a cell phone light through it. One side is polished, and I put water on the rougher backside to show mor

    Orthocone nautiloid

    Fossil forum, This is another fossil from the Leighton formation. It is a completely undamaged orthocone nautiloid. I think it is the same species that I showed earlier in the possible fossil coral post, but I am not sure. The external mold has the same grooves, but the internal mold is divided into two sides, each with bumps. Is this normal for a nautiloid fossil? Any help would be appreciated. Here are some pictures of it (internal mold on the left, external mold on the right):

    Possible lumbar vertebrae fossil

    I discovered this piece of vertebrae on Sandy Hook beach in NJ after a storm. I'm not sure if it actually a fossil or just appears that way from being in the ocean. I believe it to be a lumbar vertebrae but have no idea what from. Any help greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Brachiopod id

    Fossil forum, These are specimens from the Leighton Fm. They are all located on the same block. I believe that the specimens I have taken pictures of are of the same species, but don't know what species. All the available literature I have looked at has not identified the genus. Any help with the genus, and maybe even the species, would be greatly appreciated. Here are some pictures of them (internal molds on the left, external on the right):

    Mazon Creek fossil IDs

    Possible fossil coral

    Fossil forum, This is another fossil from the Leighton Fm haul. I was thinking coral, because of the external mold of it, but the internal mold has interesting segments. Unfortunately, the internal mold is missing a piece. Here are some pictures (internal mold on the left, external on the right):

    Lingulid brachiopod id

    Fossil forum, This is another specimen from the Leighton Fm. I had two possibilities, Lingula scobina and L. lewisii, which I found mentioned in this paper https://repository.si.edu/bitstream/handle/10088/14399/1/USNMP-45_1985_1913.pdf, and which I further researched. The main problems I have with these two species are that L. scobina has different surface sculpture, and L. lewisii is an English species. Any further guidance or suggestions? Here are some pictures of it (internal mold on the left, external on the right):

    Unknown invertebrate fossil

    Fossil forum, Good morning. I recently found an interesting fossil invertebrate. It was found at the Leighton formation, Maine. I was thinking possible coral, but the segments on it were perplexing. Trilobite didn't seem to fit because of the size and the shape of the segments. Any help would be appreciated. Here are some pictures of it (the internal mold is on the left, external on the right):

    Are these fossils?

    I recently took a trip up to a few localities of the Murray Shale of Blount County, Tennessee, which contains fossils of the early Cambrian period. I looked around in some of the loose shale on the ground to see if I could find a small brachiopod or hyolith (both of which are common to this locality). This was my first time going out and looking to see if I could find a fossil on my own. I took a few pictures of what I thought could possibly be fossiliferous material of some sort, but ultimately could not determine if what I found was indeed fossiliferous. Most of what I saw appeared to be fos

    Fossils in Lebanon

    Greetings! I've been collecting marine fossils ever since I could remember. However, only recently have I started reading and researching about these fossils. I started researching for the correct rocks to break open in hope of finding new fossils (ammonites, fish fossils, etc..) instead of my usual findings (gastropods, clams, rarely urchins). I took some advice from you guys and began looking for a good book that might help on which rocks to look for (keepings in mind Lebanon is mostly early-middle cretaceous and Jurassic) I've used this map to find my way to Jurassic

    Amber beach find?

    After a storm recently I was walking down the beach and found a large rock in the surf at a beach off of Charleston, SC. The first photo is of the rock intact, the second is of pieces of the rock that broke off when I tried to lift it. I looked online for tests for Amber. I completed the salt water float test (the piece that I tested floated), hot needle (it smelled like pine resin), and acetone test (it did not dissolve). Having passed all of theses tests I'm feeling more confident that it might be Amber? Would love thoughts from the forum. Is it amber? Where would it come from to

    I need help in identifying a fossil

    Hello, here is a fossil I found a few years ago in Israel, I do not remember any more information about the place it was found in because as I said it was a few years ago. I think this fossil is interesting but unfortunately I don't have much general fossil knowledge so I don't know what could this fossil be. I would love to here any ideas about what can this fossil be and also I added a picture with a mask for scale.

    Wyoming Baculite Identification Help

    Hello, Last week, I found this baculite eroding out of a concretion in Casper, WY along the recreational bike path. The shale erodes out of the hillside and is presumably part of the Cretaceous Cody Fm. Can someone help me verify and identify this baculite? Are there any references to the stratigraphy and or fossil assemblages in the Casper area? Sorry for the poor photo quality. Thank you!
