  1. Unidentified molar

    Hi, I was wondering if you could identify this for me and if it’s a fossil? found on the Peace River.
  2. Dear fellow forum goers, As of late, I have come across an interesting timetable on Wikipedia detailing the timeline of the far future based on predictions from fields such as astrophysics, geology, and evolutionary biology. At the 250-300 million years from now marker the article reads: "All the continents on Earth may fuse into a supercontinent. Three potential arrangements of this configuration have been dubbed Amasia, Novopangaea, and Pangaea Ultima.[40][56] This will likely result in a glacial period, lowering sea-levels and increasing oxygen levels, further lowering global temperatures". Later on, it posits that at the 400-500 million years from now mark that "The supercontinent (Pangaea Ultima, Novopangaea, or Amasia) will likely have rifted apart.[56] This will likely result in higher global temperatures, similar to the Cretaceous period.[58]" This is pretty interesting to me and I was pondering whether creatures similar to dinosaurs would evolve to fill the new evolutionary niches produced by this environment. It would be satisfying in some way for there to be a cyclic resurgence of forms of organisms on Earth based on the geological cycles that the Earth undergoes. Do you think such creatures akin to dinosaurs would reign again?
  3. Mystery Fossils from the upper Cambrian

    Hi all Were going through the last fossils from our long series of trips to the Cambrian Abrigo formation in south eastern Arizona, and we have a few fossils that I have not seen before. My thoughts are some sort of stem ossicle or foram like animal. What do you think? Have you seen such a thing before? Thanks.
  4. Hello, three teeth that I am interested in. If someone is able to check that they are as described, that would be super! 1st is a pterosaur tooth from the Dockum Group, Scurry County, Texas - 0.9cm 2nd - Dromaeosaurus - 1.1 cm from Judith River 3rd - Theropod from Bissekty Formation - 3/4 inch. Many thanks. It's the pterosaur tooth that most interests me. I don't have any from that formation.
  5. Fossils?

    I found these last year when I was in Nova Scotia, so I took some photos of them, there from Peggy’s Cove, Nova Scotia. Are they fossils?
  6. Orthoceras fossils in the US

    Hi, I was wondering if you can find Orthoceras fossils in the US?
  7. Need help identifying

    I found these two items on the beach. They washed up on Clearwater Beach Florida. Any help identifying would be amazing.
  8. My “Mesozoic Park”

    Well, I figured that I should start a member’s collection. Sorry for my absence, I was busy with college classes. I did great this semester, and I even won a student leadership award! With that being said, I’m gonna start my collection off with a piece that I acquired for my birthday! My 22nd Birthday is tomorrow (June 14th), and I was strapped for money. My father and grandmother chipped in, and helped me acquire this chromium woodworthia piece from a local rock shop that I frequent! It’s from Arizona, and it only cost $60 USD! I’ll try to be active here whenever I can, as I am exhausted from this semester of college (having to abruptly switch to an online format due to COVID-19). I’ll have to link other threads of my fossils and post pictures of my previous additions to my collection to this thread whenever I have the time!
  9. Westmoreland or Stratford hall

    Hi everyone, I might be in Virginia soon, and I was wondering if I’d have a better chance of finding a big tooth at Westmoreland State Park or Stratford hall?
  10. Hi!! As wide as the internet is, I've found quite a lot of sites where, apparently, dinosaur fossils are sold. I've found a particular site in which there are Deltadromeus Agilis teeth. My question is: ¿Is this, you know, real? ¿Is it a fake? At least, it looks real on the image. Thanks to anyone who answers this post!
  11. Dinosaur bone prep

    Hi everyone, I was wondering if anyone could tell me how to remove dirt from dinosaur bones?
  12. I am always happy to find any fossil, but finding some colorful ones is always a special treat. I don't live in Canada with amazing Ammolite Ammonites, but I have collected some pretty cool colorful things myself. What are your most colorful fossils? Show me! A Rainbow of Ram's Horns -Illymatogyra arietina - Texas Cretaceous Colorful Crinoids - Texas Pennsylvanian Some more Illymatogyras that are just colorful in and of themselves: Ammonite from England: Ammonite from North Sulfur River, TX
  13. Found in North Carolina

    Hello everyone, newbie here, and thank you for helping me figure out what I found. All those were found in a pile of mixed gravel/sand/sea shelves in Raleigh, NC but it was imported, I believe from the Aurora, NC mine several years ago. Anyway, I was lucky enough to find several items including bones and dozens of shark teeth but I am not familiar with a few of my findings. Hopefully you guys can help, Thanks again!!!
  14. Kemmerer, Wyoming trip 2

    Exciting news! Looks like I'm going back to Kemmerer Wyoming with my whole family! We're all doing a special trip there. I'm going to get in some fossil digging at the Green River formation, courtesy of fishdig.com. I've been there once before, last time I went there, I discovered a large Phareodus Testis. Also, my brothers two friends from Japan are coming to join us for this trip. I'm certain this will be Unforgettable to them. The date is to be announced. Probably end of July, early August.
  15. Please help me identity

    Hey all, Recently came across a few interesting looking rocks/possible fossils while on a hike in New Paltz. Can anyone help me identify? -RGellerVel
  16. Fossil Spots Near Ocala?

    My five year old daughter has recently gotten into fossils and loves the water, so after looking around she really wants to go sifting for fossils/shark teeth in a creek/river. Are there any good spots near Ocala we could go try out? I assume places like the Silver River and Rainbow River are off limits? We recently went out on Orange Creek near Ft. McCoy and spent a few hours looking around, but never found any "gravel beds" or any rocky spots at all. Whenever we'd dig in the spots we did see (which weren't rocky) it would either just be a big clump of roots or just loose white sand. Do most creeks have a gravel bed spot, or is it just hit or miss where some do and some don't? What are some other tell-tale signs of a good spot? I really appreciate any help given!
  17. I really only want to keep one of these, probably either the bottom left or the right fern. Not to concerned about the others.
  18. Hi, I live very close to big brook, NJ and have collecting many beautiful specimens of the oysters there. The oysters there are very unique, as they are some of the best and biggest of the species you can find in the world. I have many various specimens. Ill take any request for size, look, style as they all look different. Perhaps some like a more wavy pattern or separated pattern or a bubbly pattern. Im interested in anything you have to offer! I attached various pics to see. Although I have many and some even better.
  19. Vertebra

    Hello! Is it normal such hole in vertebra? And if its possible to identify it? Scake - mm. Western Ukraine, most probably Miocene. Thanks in advance!
  20. Help me ID these please

    Hi I found these bits at Herne Bay in Kent. Can anyone ID the two dark pieces? They are about 3cm each in length. one of them looks like reptilian skin or I thought maybe part of a turtle paddle? Would really appreciate any thoughts.
  21. Identification Assistance

    I have many items that need identifying but will only post three. Note: The left side of the ruler is in inches in all pics. The first item I assumed was petrified wood, but have been told it may be something completely different. This was found in the San Gabriel Riverbed, above Azusa, Ca. The second item appearing to be bone was found on the shoreline of Lake Mohave, on the Nevada side, between Searchlight and Laughlin. This lake is formed by the Colorado River. The third item appearing to be bone was found near the second. Wood, Bone, Rock...Any ideas? Any info is very welcome.
  22. Fossil ID #4

    This next fossil is long and thin, with lots of detail on each side. It has a slight bend and distinct marks on one end that made me think it might be a tooth of some kind, but maybe not from something in the ocean/sea. Any thoughts?
  23. I'm starting to get into mechanical prep seeing as with the quarantine I have extra time on my hand. My equipment arrived before my projects did so I've been practicing on this invert I had on hand. I believe this is a gastropod? Or is it a bivalve? I can never keep them straight in my head. Anyways, I forgot to take a before picture so I apologize for this awful photo as it was the only one I had: And this is it currently: Obviously not done yet, needs some more work and then some serious clean up to make it look nice but I'm thinking to put it aside for a while. The matrix is very annoying. There is less than a millimeter of rock covering the left side but as I learned the hard way on a small section, haste leads to immediate damage of the fossil. Prying upwards is great for chipping the rock away quickly but wants to take the fossil with it I'll finish it eventually but it will be slow, slow going. On a more exciting note one of my real projects arrived today. Here in a bit I'll draw up and post a plan of attack and tomorrow I'll probably get a start on it. My hope is that with this thread I can get your guys' opinions and advice to help prevent me from adding another cautionary tale on the bungled extractions thread
