    Bone or Tooth?

    I found this on the beach in Cherry Grove South Carolina. It's about 2 inches long. Im not sure what it is but I feel like it's a bone or tooth of some kind because of the brown discoloration on the inside but I really don't know. Will leave it to the professionals of fossil forum to give me some suggestions.

    What is this?

    I need to pick some brains. I found this at a beach, late cretacous in age in New Zealand. The site is known for belemnites, reptilian bones and fossil wood. I have no idea what this is. It has protruding thin lines spanning out over both ends that have been replaced by calcite or quartz. The lines can be seen along the length of one side and on the other side there seems to be a circle with new protruding thin lines. Could this be pine needles? It's the only thing I can think of? Some parts almost have a woody characteristics, and other parts with fine to medium sand textures.

    Large Tusk Tooth

    Found this on the beach in the outer banks, NC. The tusk or tooth part is 6-7 inches long. We have no idea what this could be and would welcome any help with the ID. Thanks!
  4. Hi, Found this bone over Christmas whilst on a beach walk on the south coast of England. Please could someone identify what animal it's from and what part of the body too? It's about 15cm long. Thanks, Steve

    Calvert Cliffs Finds

    Hello all, since I finally joined this awesome community, I decided to post these two I found many years ago at Calvert Cliffs, MD. The beaches yield marine fossils of Miocene era, shark teeth, shells, porpoise, whale, etc. I’ve always assumed the bone was something really recent but hung onto it just in case. Always assumed the tooth was some sort of crocodilian but I don’t know if that makes sense.
  6. Beach finds, a few cool items...this week!

    Shell of some sort

    So I found this rather large specimen embedded in rock near the cliffs of half moon bay on redondo beach, California. Found amongst barnacle scallop and clam fossils as well. I’m thinking ammonite or nautilus, or something of the like.

    Black petrified wood?

    Hello to all! I'm an avid sea glass collector here on Cape Cod and have been collecting it for almost a decade on a beach hugely covered by rocks - which I've pretty well ignored until this recently caught my eye. I picked it up thinking it was just an interesting composite rock but was completely stumped when I saw the wood grain section as well. After some quick internet research I was so amazed to find it seemed to be petrified wood. I think it's safe to say that I probably haven't given such a thing a second thought since a grade school science class so had the contrast in the

    Venice beach Meg?

    Has anyone ever found a meg (whole or partial) on caspersen beach in Venice Fl or the surrounding beaches? Please post pics if you have them.
  10. This kind of reminds me of a pine cone:
  11. Need your help. I’m going to be in the Venice area next week for a few days. Can anyone tell me the real impact the current red tide situation is having on the area? Are people able to search beaches for fossils without having effects of red tide? Is the water ok to swim in?

    Unknown mammal tooth fragment

    This was picked up on a beach of the Atlantic Ocean near Cape Town among washed up gravel where I often find fossilized Mako and Great White shark teeth from the miocene epoch. It measures 4.2cm in lenth. Any response will be appreciated. Thank You.

    Minster, Isle of Sheppey Oct 2021

    Hi guys Went over to Sheppey yesterday to see what I could find... I'm a total novice, so I tend to pick up anything with an interesting shape and/or texture. Found some pyritised wood/twigs, a bit of crab in a phosphatic nodule, a little gastropod and some very round seed pods. The following pics are of the ones I had trouble figuring out due to their shapes resembling other things. Any clues would be great! Thanks ONE I'd like to think it's some kind of pointy reptile scute, but from my browse online it's possibly a pyritised seed husk? 3rd pic shows the dep

    Interested to know what we found

    Hi, can anyone help please with what this? We found it on a beach in Suffolk England (North Sea). Its vey light (74g) for its size. Sorry if I've posted on the wrong forum or my photos aren't good enough. Any information about what it is would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks Garry .
  18. Please help me identify these finds from the bottom of a clay cliff in Warden Point, Isle of Sheppey a - 0.5cm thick, almost flat, smooth on the other side b - i think this is not a fossil but a handle of an old knife c - round in cross section d - this is hexagonal in cross section the remaining ones are all of the same kind and the beach was full of them, i guess they may not be fossils either but what are they?
  19. Hello! I’m new here, but I was hoping someone would be able to help me identify this fossil I found a few months ago? I believe it is a turtle carapace or something similar. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
  20. Dear Forum, These I found whilst exploring Shotley Beach, just by Felixstowe in East Anglia, England. I've taken two pictures of each ('front' and 'back' - they're all very flat); but I can provide more if something's really of interest! Regarding nomenclature, we can refer to them as A-G. Best Regards Jamie

    Items found

    Hello everyone we came across some cool finds at the old hunstanton beach uk one looks like a tooth or claw (could be a rock or flint) the other is an impression on what I think may be wood (it’s very lightweight) IMG_0430.MOV

    Shark Tooth? Beach ID request

    I found this on the beach at the surf side northern tip of Hatters Island, North Carolina (Outer Banks). Anyone have an idea what this might be? My first guess was shark tooth but not quite sure now I've seen more samples. Also, any idea what the small dots are that kind of form a triangle? Thanks, I'm just starting to get into this hobby.

    Sponge ID?

    Hi! I found this sponge on a beach in Gdynia Orłowo, Poland. It was embedded in sandstone.

    Unknown Bivalve

    While I was on vacation in the Outer Banks in North Carolina, I picked this up while collecting seashells. I was hoping maybe someone on here would be able to tell me what it is. The rock itself is about 4cm long, while the shell that was impressed in it is about 2cm wide, and 2.5cm long. I'm not 100% on it being a bivalve, but in person it looks too asymmetrical to be a brachiopod.

    Hi all, this is my first post here. I found this the other day on a north shore Long Island NY beach, down at the water's edge. Looks like a partially peeled hardboiled egg. Was wondering what, if anything, it could be? I've tried to research as much as I could, but running into dead ends. Thanks in advance!
