    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.
  4. KitKat


    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!
  5. Cheesestraw4

    Interesting shape. What is it?

    Found this on beach. Was blacker when wet. The knobbly bit drew my eye. Once home and cleaned I could see there is a smoother black core running through it. Is this some sort of bone? Any ideas anyone? Thanks

    Fossil teeth

    We found these at low tide in a very heavy blue clay area of the beach. Thought they might be mammoth tooth? Please help ID

    Fossil ID

    I found this at a beach and I am wondering if it is a fossil, and, if it is, what is it?

    Young fossil hunter

    Hi, I have a 6 year old son who is obsessed with finding stuff on the beach. (In Essex) The other day he brought something over to me and I’m convinced he found a fossil of some kind. He now wants to know what it might be, and so do I! Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Shark Teeth ID

    Hi all, Just finished up a vacation in North Myrtle Beach, SC. Each of these three teeth were found in the ocean swash upon crushed up shells. Can anyone identify any of the three? The last one (I did post in a separate thread, but figured I include it again) is just the tip (which looks pretty large to me as it’s almost as big as a dime - attached multiple photos). Really can’t determine what this might be? Looks very old and worn.
  11. Hi ! So I've found on the beach in french Brittany thousands of those stones (fossiles ? Thingies ?). I started to search the internet to ID them and I stumbled across this website via this post : So basically they look a lot like wormcast you typically see on a beach but they are solid and look like limestone. I don't know much about fossils so I can't really tell but they definitely feel like limestone and other fossiles I've found before. Another information that might help with ID is that basically I found them amongst litterally thousands of those but there was no othe

    What on earth is this?

    I found this strange looking rock along the cliffs of Maslin Beach, South Australia. The beach is a fossil hotspot for shells but this doesn't look like a shell to me... Any idea what these strange lines are?
  13. Hello! I found this piece in Portsmouth RI this weekend on a shale beach (picture attached). I'm just not sure what the shale is attached to--- it *looks* like a piece of bone, but I've been doing some image searches and cant find anything really similar. Sorry for my hand in one- I couldn't get a clear shot of the edge otherwise. Thanks so much in advance - I appreciate any insights into what this might be! Emily

    found on a beach

    Hi all--I'm new here and this is my first post. I'm here because I am interested in identifying something I found, but I have a feeling I'm going to enjoy hanging out here. I found this on a beach in North Carolina while shark tooth hunting. This is from "the point" at the west end of the Bogue Banks at the Bogue Inlet, in the town of Emerald Isle. I've scoured the internet for matching photos and I can't figure out what it might be...the closest I've gotten is some kind of duck-billed dinosaur tooth. But I'm sure that's wrong. It doesn't look like anything I've found before.

    Is this beach find a fossil?

    Hi all - I just discovered this today on the beach and have no idea if it’s a fossil or a useless piece of garbage lol. Found sitting in the sand, nestled among rocks on Youghall Beach in Bathurst, New Brunswick (Canada). About 10 feet from the water line, but near the high tide mark.. so would have washed up there with the tides. There is a bit of crusty sand still on the front - I’m worried to try and scrape it off. Just curious if this is ‘something’ or should be tossed out. Any ideas are appreciated!

    Help ID a sea creature

    I found this on Ocean Beach in SF. It looks like an echidnoid to my uneducated eyes, but there may also be something else. Any help appreciated-thanks.

    Megalodon tooth?

    So, hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico removed a lot of the sand from the beaches by pulling it back into the ocean unearthing artifacts and other objects. On my trip I found a lot of these in one specific area of the beach while a was walking where the water touches your feet and the sand is wet. This one was the biggest I found (3.5” tall and 3 1/4” wide), and the others were about 1.5” tall. I only took this one. They all looked the same/similar and that caught my attention. Thicker on one side and thinner on the other half. So, were they all megalodon teeth? The surface looks like a rock with

    ID plant fossil found on beach

    First time poster. Found these on a Canadian Beach on the east coast and they all seem to be from the same plant. They all have a very distinct triangular ridge on the side. Included photo is from the pieces with the best defined ridge.

    Hawaii Modern Bone Beach Find

    Bone is 6 inches across and was found on a beach in Hawaii.

    Tooth, teeth, or something else?

    Edit: sorry somehow the images got out of order. Just to make it more challenging, I guess. These are some other items I have found looking for shark teeth near Venice Florida, in the surf. I'm not sure if the first four are similar or not. All conical, and show worn or broken off layers. One is slightly corkscrews, and one has a bump on one side. The second batch are all similar, with ridges around a cusp, and a smaller end. The last looks like a human incisor, though I would guess it is from a deer or something similar. I found a couple pieces of fossilized antler in

    Fossil tooth - bovine, horse?

    We found this today at the beach near Venice, Italy (Adriatic Coast). So far we've determined it is a tooth from either a cow or an equine species. We burned it with a lighter - it does smell burnt, so probably not fossilized. Does anybody know the species?
  22. I thought this looked like a tooth crown, but there is nothing but the crown if that is what it is. Might well be something else. Found on a beach near Fort Pierce. About 3/4 inches square. Not so high. Thanks for your help.

    Fossil Tooth From Florida Beach.

    Found this tooth on a beach near Fort Pierce Florida. It is almost exactly one inch long across the crown and 3/8 inch wide. The width is very irregular as you can see. Thanks for your help.
  24. Hello, this was found along the beach in Maui, Hawaii and my boyfriend and I are curious if anyone might know what it could be? =) It has distinct ridges all along. Maybe a crab claw fossil? Thanks for your help!
  25. Hello! So I found these three fossils and was curious to know about them... one i think is to be a bryozoan branch the tooth i believe to be a cow tooth not sure how old it may be and the last one is a type of small brachiopod its super tiny but again I don't know much about fossils yet but I am ready to learn more ! So if any one knows anything about these fossils that'd be a great help! First 6 pictures are from the riverbed and the last two are from the beach in Lübeck,Germany Thanks!
