  1. What air scribe is the best for a beginner? Preferably one that isn’t too expensive. Please help I have no idea what i’m doing...
  2. Fossil?

    I found this at North Myrtle Beach in late November 2019 on a day I found 100+ shark teeth including a beautiful 2 1/2 inch great white tooth At first I thought it was a fish vertebrae or something in that ballpark but can’t find anything that matches the description. It looks like it is covered in what I think is matrix but I am just an amateur fossil hunter. Please help, any suggestions will do. thanks!
  3. Help

    Cannot remember how long ago I found this but it has been in my shark tooth collection for years assuming it was a shark molar of some sort but now that I am a little knowledgeable I know sharks do not have molars. Have not been able to find anything that looks similar online. Any suggestions would be great. thanks!
  4. Shell ID Please

    A shell I found at Lake Texoma (Texas/Oklahoma border). Please help! Also how do I make images smaller? Like physically, not file size.
  5. Messy fossil help

    Ok, where do I start on removing this fossil? I am a beginner so where do I start? What should I remove first? Should I even bother?
  6. Hello from ohio

    I had found this weird fossil working on my bosses cabin. Need help to identify what it is! I've had so many people tell me it's either a fossilized honey comb from a bee hive or a honey comb coral! I'm just confused and asking for help!
  7. Unidentified Jaw, Mammal?

    Hello everyone. Ive got a tough one for you guys. So I have a fossil jaw with a single canine tooth that I’ve had in my collection for a couple years. It was a gift from my boyfriend, so no locality. I tried to have it identified on the fossil forum Facebook group when I first got it, but no one knew what it was for sure. I had a paleontologist post a response and this is what he had to say: ”Hi Marielle Krenzelak, I'm a palaeontologist but I'm not entirely sure what you have there. I'm not concerned with the material that others don't think is bone. It looks to me like the canine tooth (the only tooth you have) is broken. I think the jaw is mammalian based on its overall morphology. I don't think that it is a horse, based on the shape of the symphysis (area where the left and right jaws would have connected) and its position relative to the canine. It is interesting that it has a long post-canine diastema (the smooth area after the canine and before the alveoli, or holes, where the next teeth would have gone). I also think the other suggestions (boar and goat) are also incorrect, again based on the length of the diastema and the shape of the symphysis. Finally, the age constraint someone gave you of less than 20,000 years is not supportable. I've worked on mammals back to ~ 55,000,000 years that have similar preservation. Barring that, I'm just not sure what it is you have there.” So I thought I’d try again on this forum to see if anyone has any idea what it might be? I know we have many experts and actual paleontologists on here. If anyone could help me out, it would be greatly appreciated. Here is a link to the post about it on Facebook in case anyone is in the fossil forum Facebook group and wants to take a look at it: https://www.facebook.com/groups/135008766530423/permalink/1768488489849101?sfns=mo Thank you for any thoughts or insights you have to share!
  8. NAUTILOID vs. AMMONITE

    Hi I am composing a table of comparisons between nautiloids and ammonites (mainly internal and external anatomy but a couple of extras too) and was wondering if anyone had anything they could add to what I have already? (Table attached) Cheers in advance Mark
  9. Hello, I found this while at the oregon coast. Is it a fossilized egg of some kind? Its about 3 inches long. Thanks
  10. In my attempt to self educate myself, I am tring to find as much information on the Texas Cretaceous fossils I find. I am a bit confused about the scientific notation of genus species. For example, in much of the literature, there will be a name in parenthesis : like Pecten (Neithia) texanus or Trochus (Tectus) texana. (examples from the Studies of Some Comanchean Pelecypod paper). And in the Field Guide to Fossils of Texas, Mesalia (Turritella) seriatim-granulata and Gyrodes (Sohlella) spillmani. What does that mean? Is Pecten the proper name or Neithia? Is it Mesalia or Turritalla? Or is it both? Or if there is a question mark after the genus - like Cerithium? barionnenne or Pseudomelania ? pupoides (Both examples from the Studies of Some Comanchean Pelecypod paper). Are they just not sure if that is the proper Genus and leaving it open to interpretation and further study? Any help is appreciated!
  11. Okay so basically where I am, maybe this is just a funny looking rock I found on the creek bed. However I feel like it may be a dinosaur tooth or claw? I'm hoping someone can weigh in?
  12. Help me identify these Fossils

    Hello! I am new here and have never really used a forum before- honestly. But I would love it if someone could help me identify these fossils! I should also add, I found these in Ontario in Canada! Thanks!
  13. Hello I present an interesting question that I'm not to confident to answer myself and am seeking help from the more knowledgeable. Since it seems like (from what I had seen) iron concretions can at rare times preserve certain fossils or traces in one way or another such as molluscs, brachopods, and such. Due to this would it be possible for material such as turtle shell scutes or maybe even croc scutes to turn up in such concretions in one way or another? (the pics are just snipets of general info that I came across online)
  14. Michigan Brownstone

    I Found this last week on what I believe some call Lake Michigan Brownstone ? 3 5/8th in x 4 inch. Has Bryozoans and one I believe is a brachiopod 15 mm wide attached to the side. Bob
  15. Paasche

    Hi, we stopped at a thrift store and bought a as new Paasche H # and H S# airbrush. It has the side reservoir and two sizes of glass jars and air hose. $3.50. I can use it for my art work. Any one know if this will work with baking soda as a micro abrader for fossil prep? Bicarbonate of soda if there is a difference. Before I try it. Will be more likely to do 2-3 inch fossil hash plates with Crinoids to start. Thanks, Bob
  16. Help identify tooth

    Need some help identifying this tooth I found the other day. I thought it was a horse at first but the molar pattern is a bit different and it doesn’t seem to be as wide as a horse. Any thoughts?
  17. Deep Springs Road (first trip)

    I made my first trip out to DSR today and, with some helpful tips from some kind people on the forum, I was able to find the site and know what to look for. Its a nice little spot. Near the road, easy to get to, and quiet. I didn't find anything exceptional, but I thought I would post pics of my favorites for anyone looking up the spot. Thank you to the owners of the site for let everyone come and enjoy it.

    Hello i am reposting thread of this piece from 3 days ago . I am new to this forum and trying to figure out what works best in posts . i have this fossil I believe that I have no idea what it is.M Rockwood noted that foramen was visible so it wasn’t just a rock.

  21. Hoping for a second opinion

    I think this is a Rex tooth because it has a thick base and the tooth is wide, but I’m not expert and was hoping someone could reaffirm for me.
  22. How to clean

    Hi everyone, I've been wanting to clean this fossil up for a long time but not really knowing how to start because I have little experience with cleaning fossils. Anybody got any tips for removing the hard stone covering the front of the fossil? Thanks in advance! (dimensions are 9x9x7 cm)
