    Help identifying

    Hello, Could anyone help identifying this? thank you in advance kerry
  2. 3'5 inch Carcharodontosaurus S. Tooth from the regular KemKem beds. However, I do have some suspicions of the root. Can anybody help
  3. Two species? Photos for specimen one are 1-7 and photos for specimen two are 8-13.
  4. Paleorunner

    Does anyone know what it is?

    I don't know if it's some kind of solitary coral, or what it could be. The seller only attaches this photo, and in his sales comment he says that he does not know what it is, or where it comes from. Can someone recognize it? I'm waiting for a response from the seller to know the size.

    Fossil ID needed

    Hi Can anyone identify this fossil. It's roughly 3cm by 4cm at longest points. Found in Shetland. Thanks Diane

    I found this fossil a few years ago along the Potomac River, I am thinking it is a Chesapecten sp.?

    Lithuanian fossils, what are they?

    Hello everyone! After looking at some findings, I spotted some stones, which look the very same. Stones, which usually should be glacial erratics! All three stones look the same. Does that mean, they came from the same place? I'd have some hope, it could be some mushrooms of some time, since they all have the very exact same built, but I think, that's not even possible? After a farmer went over the field, plowing, I found a broken stone, from which there peeped out a long, round fossil. It does not really look like the rugosa I constantly find. Does somebody know, wh
  9. Hello everyone, I am a new member and i do not understand much about fossil. Although i am very pationate about them. I found this fossil myself and i would like to remove the matrix attached to the fossil. I tried vinegar and a tooth brush. It kinda worked on the top of the fossil where you can see the tiniest spirals. That method cosumed about 2 days of work and only uncovered that tiny piece of the fossil. I am also concerned that the acid frrom the vinegarr will partially destrroy the fossil. What is the best way to do this? Best Regards, Bruno

    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
  12. Hey everyone this is my first post to the forum. I hope everyone is doing well. While fossil hunting in Amelia island I came across this fossil. At first I thought it was a Scute but after seeing photos it doesn’t have the craters you see in most scutes. Then I thought it was a Sea Robin Skull but it also looks different from that as well. Does anyone have any other suggestions on what it may be?

    Some pieces of bone

    I was recently at a fossil show in Buffalo NY at which I obtained some small, unidentified, pieces of bone. Three of these pieces I believe might be identifable, so if anyone know what they are, the information would be appreciated. The first one is just a small piece of bone, however, it has three holes on one end that I am curious about. Could they be bite marks? The second fossil is the one that I think has the best chance of being identified, due to it's shape. It is also unusually light for it's size. The final fossil I was told was a part of an Edmonto

    Can anyone help identify?

    I found this in a creek fossil hunting and I can not identify it, and cannot find it on the internet. If someone could identify that would be great.

    Do you see what I see?

    Hello everyone, I am hopeful that I can get some information about this rock/fossil. I see quite a few different shapes in this guy here, but I need to make sure that my imagination is not running away with me. I don’t know if I should keep trying to brush clean, to show what I believe is the fossil. or continue. My Indian artifacts consume a lot of spare time, and space enough as it is. but now this guy got me really intrigued. thanks in advanced everyone.
  17. Hi All! I believe this fossil to be authentic, but I was hoping to gather opinions from more experienced collectors than myself. Can you help me out?
  18. I recently purchased the object below, and am curious to know if anyone can help identify it. The seller themselves has provided very little insight, though I'm trying to see if they can give more details. I'm not overly concerned about what it is, though it would be nice if the seller's information is accurate. The seller claims this is from South Australia and they believe it to be an archaeocyatha from the Cambrian period. Typical archeocyatha fossils I've seen show the 'cup within a cup', which may be what is visible to the right of the main feature? I don't know if the fe

    Is this a fossil?

    What is this?

    Please identify

    Found in an. ARKANSAS creek. About 3 inches
  21. Found this fossil recently. looks like its possible tooth sockets and the material is very bone like but it has a secondary medium meshed with it, which is what alerted me to it being a fossil. i thought it was just a cool unique rock at first or a native american artifcact considering my finger fit perfectly in the socket. I thought it may be broken clay pottery or just some sort of tool. you guys think it could be from iguanadon? similar features for sure.

    Sponge or Coral

    I am supposed to identify whether this is a sponge or a coral but google is not helpful and neither is my professor. My instinct is to say colonial coral, but i would just like to be sure. Any insight would be greatly appreciated!

    Can anyone identify this fossil?

    My mother accumulated some fossils during her teaching career in Louisiana. At one point...probably 50 years ago....they were sent to LSU to be identified. Over the years, some of the labels have been lost and I've recently gotten the identification of most. But this one is still "up for grabs"...the original label said "annelid?" Any help would be appreciated....I'd like to get them appropriately displayed....for some reason someone thought it was a good idea to glue them onto styrofoam.

    Stuff from Lost River, WV

    So I went to Lost River, WV (Needmore formation) during the fall. I just recently found time to go through the material some more, set up photos, edit, etc. Brachiopod impression? As with the other brachiopods, I’m hoping for genus-level identification. Brachiopod. Any ID’s on its genus? This… Thing. I’m guessing its a brachiopod. But I could also see it being the eye of a trilobite. This brachiopod flaked right off the matrix! Any ideas as to what genus it belongs to? Hmmmm this was clearer
