    Four Mazon Creek fossils that need identification and/or confirmation. Thanks in advance.

    Moroccan fossil (Halisaurus?) - ID

    Hi everyone, I bought this piece long ago and after last move I forgot it in a moving box. I just rediscovered it and I would like to know more about it. The seller said it was an Enchodus half jaw from Morocco Cretaceous. In my opinion : this is a real piece but perhaps an assemblage (just hope it is not a a complete Frankensteinsaurus). it is not Enchodus but it is definitely some kind of Halisaurus. I suspect there is a left dentary (?), a right surangular (??? probably glued piece) and 2 other bones (underneath the surangular and abo
  4. I purchased this with the misidentification of an unknown coral with no listed location. I've received an identification from a local museum of a fish dental plate from the Kem Kem beds in Morocco and was wondering if anyone here knew of a way to identify the genus of the fish.

    Fossil wood or worms or ???

    Found today at new spot in northern Minnesota, part of the cholera one formation. Not sure what it is exactly, possibly fossilized wood with worms or something.
  6. Hello fellow fossil fans, In this post I have a piece of bone I have found on zandmotor a few months ago. I know bone fragments are hard to ID. However I hope that perhaps because of its distinctive shape any of you could give me an idea of what it could be. thanks in advance!

    Vertebrae fossil Door County, WI

    My son found, what looks to us to be, a backbone in the rock, in the shallow water of a beach in Door County, WI. The first picture is the fossil in question, the others are other things we found interesting but less convinced they are fossils. I would estimate it to be about 15 to 18 inches in length. Any idea what it could be? Thanks in advance for your time.

    Bone Valley Find

    I’m currently at a pay site, collecting Bone Valley fossils. An individual next to me found this bone fragment, can someone identify what it is? It looks familiar, but what it is is not coming to mind right now. @Shellseeker

    echinocnchid brachiopod

    My son and I get a lot of clams from castleton, UK but I’ve never seen anything quite like this… any ID would be fantastic. thanks

    Edmontosaurus Fossil?

    Hi there everyone! I recently came across a listing for what is described as a partial Edmontosaurus toe bone and I thought it would be a unique addition to my collection. The specimen’s description says it was found in the Hell Creek Formation of Montana which is pretty commonplace with this seller, but I attempted to get in contact with the seller to try and get more information about the fossil (exact locality, how they IDd the specimen, etc.) and they unfortunately never responded. I was wondering if any of y’all would give it a look and give some of your own opinions. I’d lo
  13. Dear friends. Once again I bother you with a question, as I would love to know which animal this tooth might belong to. According to the seller, it is a prehistoric Indonesian elephant, but I have no further information. I attach the best photographs I could get, one of them with a ruler to measure in centimeters.

    Fossil ID needed

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

    Clams and worms?

    Keewatin, MN, USA. Overburden pile from local iron mine. So I believe these to NOT be glacial erratics like my other fossils, which would be a first for me!!! Some obviously seem like clams of some sort, but what I stood out to me the most was the holes and subsequent worm-like things inside, most of which were loose enough to remove (albeit I broke most of them). My guess is they’re some kind of worms, any thoughts?

    South Central WI ID Help

    Newer to fossils. Been searching the same location for awhile now and it's the first time coming across one like this. Just seems so interesting to me. Maybe it's just a rock? Idk any help is appreciated.
  17. A couple of weeks ago, I went to Calvert Cliffs, MD to comb the beach for shark teeth, and came across these: A lot of them are missing their tops, which may make ID more difficult. Also, I’m not sure if 7 is even a tooth or just conveniently shaped. I’m fairly confident that 9 is a thresher shark, and think that 1-3 are maybe lemon sharks, but otherwise I’m lost. I’m particularly interested in (what I believe is) the vertebra and the sting ray mouth plate (13 and 14, respectively). I tried to get better supplemental photos, though fossil size and camera quality were a
  18. These are listed online as Juvenile mammoth teeth partials, are they?
  19. Laramide


    This piece of Madison limestone contains a hash of crinoid and rhombopora. I initially thought this was fenestella but as I look at it again years later I'm thinking the geometry isn't quite right. Thoughts?

    Green River Fish, Knighta or Diplomystus?

    I recently finished preparing a fish fossil from the Green River formation that I purchased online. The site said that the fossil would be either a Knighta or a Diplomystus. From looking at images, the face seemed to look like a Diplomystus but the body seemed more like Knighta. Could anyone tell me which it is? Thanks in advance, Tigereagle12345 Measurements are 11.5 cm by 2.5 cm

    Theropod tooth from Niger

    Recently got this partial theropod tooth, found in Niger, Gadoufaoua. Likely a Eocarcharia Dinops tooth. If anyone can help me confirm this species, that would be amazing!
  22. I live in Seymour, TN and have been helping my 6 year old and 4 year old dig for cool rocks and fossils beside our house lately. We would love to find a trilobite, but wanted some help dating the rock layers near my house if anyone here could help me! From what I can find on USGS maps and stuff, our house is on the Tellico Formation (Middle Ordovician). We are above the Blockhouse Formation and below the Chota and Sevier Shale formations. If this is correct, we should be able to find a trilobite on our property somewhere. But the attached photos are the things we have been finding. I believe t
