    My Tylosaurus tooth

    Here is my Tylosaurus proriger tooth. species : Tylosaurus proriger age of the tooth : 83 to 75 million years (cretaceous) size of the tooth ; 1,06 inches location : Barbour County , Alabama formation : Blufftown Formation

    NW Alabama

    Formation: Bangor Limestone Age: Mississippian Found this location in a remote area of Alabama recently. I Haven't hunted the Bangor in awhile, so I gave it a shot. A fragmentary calyx. Northern Alabama seems to be teeming with these, as I found 8 others in a nearby locality as well. A complete, but squashed roller of a Kaskia? Fenestrella are found commonly articulated with their fans here. This was the best individual I found. My guess is these are Spyroceras? All of my nautiloids come from the Ordovicia

    Lower Alabama Mystery

    Good afternoon, Went shark tooth hunting today in lower Alabama to find Eocene age shark teeth and found this. Buried in the same layer and is very fragile, not sure if it is a fossil but definately organic. What do you guys think??

    Graptolite Preservation

    These are graptolites I dug out of an Athens Shale outcrop. They're fragile, so I am questioning whether it is better to leave them be, or seal them somehow? And if so, the best substance to get the job done. Thanks in advance. I have trilobites in shale too, so im hoping I can extrapolate from the answer here.
  5. Nerdy Girl


    Could this be a coprolite? I'm pretty sure it's not a steinkern.
  6. Here I have a prett rare a nicely preserved Deinosuchus Riograndensis tooth from the Bufftown Formation, Alabama. Looking for great quality theropod teeth from the KemKem region, preferably Carcharodontosaurus. Open for other dinosaur teeth as well. Just hit me up!

    Please help identify these

    I am trying to figure out if these things could be from the dinosaur period. There is a lot of petrified wood in this area. We take a boat to get to it and the bank is about 25 feet high from all the flooding. I am so interested in fossils, I just have a lot to learn. Thanks for your help.

    Strange barbed thing

    Location: Vestavia Hills, AL Paleozoic While inspecting this rock, a tiny barb pricked my finger. Initially, I was thinking it was a tiny piece of plant debris superficially attached. However, as more of the area became exposed after cleaning, it appears to be clearly embedded. Also, additional similar areas became exposed. Unclear if they are part of the same thing or separate inclusions. My wild guesses: Spicule? Small arthropod leg (though I realize that is in likely to be preserved)? Bryozoa? Thoughts? Last 2 pics: Potential related debris sifted and

    Paleozoic Bivalve or sponge?

    Despite weathering, I was hoping there may be enough features for an ID. My initial impression was that it could potentially be a bivalve. However, after seeing a photo of fossil sponges from the area (see last pic), I think that is a reasonable consideration as well. Thanks for looking!
  10. Found this 2” rock on Fort Morgan beach (gulf side). It has no texture, but appears to have tiny possible fish bones on it?

    Catoma Creek finds

    Recently went to Catoma Creek on my way through Montgomery and these are some of the better finds. I was hoping someone could help me out out with IDing everything since I’m not from the region. Let me know if you need more pictures. Thanks!

    Found in Crane Hill, AL (Carboniferous) Could the (presumed) burrows be part of an Asterosoma sp? Thanks for looking
  13. Tales From the Shale

    Alabama Graptolites

    Here are some of the fossils I acquired in a shale roadcut I was told about thanks to @prem. These are ordovician in age, and I have to say it was difficult to collect them due to the fragility of the surrounding material. Ive identified most of my finds, however there were these unusual pill like outlines I wasn't familar with.

    Locations for Alabama

    I'm here in Huntsville Alabama visiting my father for two weeks. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on roadcuts or locations to hunt in for any general fossil types. I'm not looking at any specific Era or anything like that, just fossils. I've done research of my own, and have some locations down, but I'd like to get the word of some locals or others who've hunted this state successfully. Thank you.

    Point A access road

    I want to take a friend over to the dam but last time I went, which was maybe a couple years ago, the road down was extremely rough and in bad shape for a car. Has anyone been this year that can tell me the state of the road that takes you into the little parking area? Many thanks
  16. Headed back to area where these were collected this weekend (Crane Hill, AL) & would like to know if I should keep collecting similar rocks? If fossils present, how can they be better delineated? 3 Specimens: 31-trackway? 30- 29- Not sure the best angle for this one so multiple pics. Last 2 pics are the back.
  17. Found in yard after heavy rain storm. The last photo is prior to cleaning off thick clay -like coating. I may have overdone it. Thanks for looking:)
  18. I’m probably getting close to my question limit for today, yet I can’t stop thinking about the pattern on the rocks. Are they trace fossils or just pretty iron staining? I’m headed back to where I collected these (Crane Hill, AL) tomorrow & it would be nice to be able to explain to my nieces. I was thinking about Graptolites, though I can’t match up the patterns to those I see in my books. Google search of pic 1/2 pulls up Stromatolites. Pic 3 is the back of pic 1/2 pic 4 includes more examples Thanks for looking.

    Pickwick Lake Area

    My grandson found this walking the shore line at Pickwick Lake. Hoping for help identifying it to spur more interest in him to start a new hobby.
  20. Hello! I am a professor teaching at the Dauphin Island Sea Lab this summer. I teach the Marine Mammal Bio Class. I have an extra day available next week to take the students on a field trip. I know that Alabama has a hot bed of marine fossils. I would love to take the students fossil hunting where we might find marine mammals. NOTE: I know the chances would be very low to make such a find, and if we did find anything, we would leave it and contact other scientists to reveal the location. But I wanted to ask if anyone could suggest the following: 1. I know many houses used to

    Tooth, bone, or tusk?

    Could someone please help me identify this piece. It was found in the bone bed area at Point A Dam in Alabama.
  22. I got to visit North Alabama again to another location to hunt Carboniferous/Mississippian Period Marine Fossils in March 2022. Getting up early isn't fun at all, but when you are with your hunting buddies and get to hang with them and others it turns out to be a fun day of discovery. You couldn't ask for a gorgeous day considering most weekends it was raining, it was sunny, not a cloud in the sky. It was cold though and it didn't help that the wind was gusting at times to the point where I lost my footing a few times on flat ground! There were piles of rock in the area, so

    Hi my son found this in some limestone near St Stevens Alabama we were wondering if someone could possibly help with the ID I know that it isn't complete but that is all that we could find of it thank you for any help

    Shark teeth and scute

    Sometime last week I went to a creek in Southeast Alabama to find shark teeth. I got thirty nine teeth and what I believe is a partial glyptodon scute. I believe that the majority are sandtiger teeth (but from YouTube and online images could be goblin) and a few mackerel shark teeth. I also got my first tiger shark tooth from this site. I was hoping someone here could help identify the scute and supposed sandtiger teeth.
  25. Back in April of last year I started a new job based in Texas. I had planned to work remotely until we returned to the office and then make a road trip down to Texas that would involve making several fossil pit stops along the way. When the time came for my move to Texas, my road trip unfortunately coincided with Hurricane Ida and I had to sadly scrap all of my plans and simply hightail it through the Gulf Coast to avoid the storm. Fortunately though I was given off from work the week between Christmas and New Years and I was even more determined to not let my research go to waste. The delay i
