  1. Took the time today to organize some of my collection of African, North American and European fossils in a display. It is a part of my collection in which I have mainly organized teeth. I concentrate my collection on aquatic reptiles and amphibians. although I have also included some flying reptiles because they fascinate me. Making all the labels was more work than expected. I think it turned out pretty well for a first draft.

    Fossil?

    Hey there I found this in a creek in south central Tennessee. I feel like it’s definitely a fossilized dinosaur tibia with webbed feet??? Or maybe has been shaped like this naturally?? Please help? Thanks in advance!!
  3. Paper finds strong support for aquatic habits in spinosaurids, associated with a marked increase in bone density. Paywalled paper https://www.nature.com/articles/s41586-022-04528-0 Bone density of Baryonyx appears closer to Spinosaurus than Suchomimus which has lots of implications in its adaptation to aquatic life National Geo https://www.nationalgeographic.com/science/article/spinosaurus-had-penguin-like-bones-a-sign-of-hunting-underwater Smithsonian https://www.smithsonianmag.com/science-nature/heavy-bones-he
  4. Could anyone here help educate me on what I found? I am guessing that the objects in this river rock are either aquatic plant parts of some sort, or terrestrial plant seeds. Just two wild guesses on my part. I never find fossils in this river, so I was surprised when I spotted it. Any help would be appreciated. - Thanks!

    Bryozoan colony?

    I found this fossil in Kansas City on the Missouri River. Lots of Carboniferous fossils in the area, anyone have an idea on what it is? It’s about 4-5 inches lengthwise.
  6. Just found this earlier today. Thought it was an enchodus until I noticed the conic root. I assume it's some type of aquatic reptile given the location and the similarity to mosasaur teeth I've found, but much more narrow than any mosasaur teeth I've found.
  7. Caroboneferous

    Mangled Brachiopod? Or something else?

    I found this piece near Kansas City on the Missouri River. It was in an area with Carboniferous fossils. It’s an interesting shape so I’m posting it to get ideas. It might be just a weirdly shaped brachiopod?
  8. Caroboneferous

    Small fossil, found in a gravel bed

    I found this interesting piece in a gravel pile in Kansas City. The gravel had a ton of different rock in it, including what looked like marble fragments, so I’m not sure if it came from somewhere else. I’ve included pictures below, some kind of coral maybe?
  9. Caroboneferous

    I found a few fossils in limestone.

    I found some fossils in limestone, there are two Brachiopods close together. There is also a crinoid stem. On the left, there is a weird bean shaped inclusion, is this another fossil? If so, what is it? The first picture is of the whole piece, second and third pictures are of the weird bean.

    Tiny tooth from the Cotswolds, UK

    Hi all! Most of you will know me as an invertebrate person, but, recently, I found something that may change my view! I was splitting some Jurassic Cotswold limestone, and I found a tooth. A tiny tiny tooth, which I believe to be a shark(?). In other chunks of the matrix, I found scales, and other hints to vertebrate life. It heavily fluoresces under UV light, and has these gorgeous lines along the flat crown. To the bottom right of the tooth, there is a partial mold of a brachiopod, which is pretty cool! Ancholme Group, Callovian - Oxfordian (166.1 - 157.3 mya). As a sister questio
  11. This looks authentic to me but I wanted to be sure. The fossils in the background of these photos kind of raised some red flags for me, especially the air holes in the trilobite mortality plate on the left. Ichthyosaur bones on a fossil plate, origin is listed as Posidonia Shale Formation, Holzmaden, Germany. Thanks friends!
  12. Hey everyone. I thought I'd share some of the things I found on my last fossil hunt. So.. Many.. Fossils! One might even say that there were a plethora of fossils. If I could, I would've taken them all with me, but sadly my backpack can only carry so many rocks. I was literally examining each rock I had, trying to decide which to carry back and which to leave behind and how many I could fit in my pants pockets before they started to fall down. Eventually I decided to just stop looking for fossils and hike back to the jeep. This lasted all of 3 seconds before I found another a beautiful by

    What kind of cephalopod is this?

    So I found both of these specimens a while back and just assumed it was some sort of cephalopod, but I’m not sure what kind. They were both found in the same area in west Michigan. Any information on these would be really helpful, thank you!

    Any information on conulariids?

    Hello everyone! I’m looking for any information on conulariids while showing the one I found! I found this specimen in west Michigan while fossil hunting recently. I used my microscope to get very zoomed in details of the ridges as this conulariid is very well preserved. The two very close up pictures are a 1000X while the last picture that isn’t as zoomed in is 50X, both are the same spot of the specimen. I know that these are thought to be some type of jellyfish/coral but that’s all I know of these fossils. Any more information would be really awesome, and I hope that you enjoy this find!
  16. My daughter and I have been hunting on our gravel path in lockdown, and have found one with almost hair like filaments running the length of it. Any chance if an ID?
  17. AstroRaptor56

    Maybe a coral or something else?

    I picked these up on my last fossil hunt. They were found in west Michigan too. I’ve never found something like those before and thought they might be some kind of coral but I don’t what from. I can’t find anything that looks like it either so any help would be great!
  18. I found this in a gravelly area where I usually find a lot of crinoids and shells and coral. I also find many goniatites in this area as well. It’s in West Michigan near Holland. I’ve never seen anything like it before though and I’m having trouble figuring out what it’s even from.

    Ball Joint Hip?

    Hey everyone, A friend of mine won an estate auction where he received a lot of antiques for resale. Knowing I had an interest in fossils, he let me have this. According to him, the estate was located in Florida. This is by far not my area of expertise but I’d love any insight so that I may conduct further research! Any help is appreciated! Thanks, Sid

    Was this rock underwater ?

    In our cottage in an island there are these big rocks that were dug up from the ground when we first built our house but there is one rock in particular that looks like it may have been underwater at some point and I sure am interested in the possibility of maybe finding some fossils, what's your opinion ?does it look like it may have been underwater? And could this area have fossils? Thanks

    search for shark teeth

    Hello, so next week i will be o vacation on an island in Greece and i was wondering if its possible to find shark teeth there and how to, i dont know a lot about searching for fossils and if sharks lived there to create them in the first place but i am willing to try so if you could suggest places that fossils could possibly be found like specific places in beaches, mountains or anything you have in mind i would be really thankful. Thanks
  22. So I was rooting again around in the garage and found a couple plates I had bought a few years back and never tracked down an ID for. Tentative provenance was Paleocene from Montana. I found this article recently and was wondering if it could be one of the genera/sp described or one of the other genera mentioned in the discussion section. Trapa, Trapago, Fortuna, Quereuxia. STOCKEY, R. A., AND G. W. ROTHWELL. 1997. The aquatic angiosperm Trapago angulata from the Upper Cretaceous (Maastrichtian) St. Mary River Formation of southern Alberta. Int. J. Pl. Sci. 158: 83-94.

    Silicate veins in coral?

    I found these in Lubbock, TX in an area having lots of ammonite fossils. These feel more like a skeleton of silica or something. And they have a blueish tint. Any ideas?
