    Is it???

    It has a bourlette, right? Is it a baby one (size is approximately a quarter)?

    Beach-combing in Florida

    I’ve been finding some interesting pieces on the beaches of NE Florida. New to the area and wasn’t really targeting anything in particular but found a piece of bone and now I’m a bit hooked. Here are a few items. The encased shark tooth is particularly interesting. The white, circular bone may be modern. Not certain about what appears to be a shark vertebrae (center top). Posted the “stem” in the ID forum.

    Florida beach bone

    Does anyone have any idea what kind of bone this is? I’m an absolute novice but I am always finding bones on the beach and need your help to identify this one. Regards Christine

    C. catticus?

    A little bit of back story: I went to my first gem and mineral show yesterday and chatted with someone from Charleston about the hobby, finds, etc. He asked if I'd ever found a C. catticus, as I guess they are there but rare. So, I looked through some of my teeth today and found two like this (but one is missing a cusp). Could this be a catticus or something else? 16 mm slant height and 13 mm wide, which is what my local book says is the top of the range. I believe I found it on either Folly or Edisto beach, but I am not good about keeping track of location, since everything around her
  5. A few days ago while snorkelling on shallow waters in a greek island I found this canine tooth and I was wondering if it is a fossil or from a modern animal. Can anyone recognise it? Thank you!!!
  6. This was found with some shells and stone pushed up on a sand bar by hurricane Nicole. Here are some photos of the object. Looks like maybe an atlas vert, but I don't know. It is a little asymmetrical left to right but the photos probably exaggerates that.

    Can anyone help me figure out what this is? Found on Caspersen Beach in Florida. 20221116_100905.mp4
  8. Hello I've been "fossil dormant" for quite a while, but was on the beach yesterday and found these (the recent storms have churned/coughed up some new layers I think) the start tooth may be hard to ID without any of the bourlette, but I can tell you that it has absolutely no serrations - perfectly smooth cutting edges. Mako? As for the small conical tooth, I think it is alligator, but I'm not sure if alligator teeth have distinct sharp crease from tip to base on opposite sides like this tooth does. Thanks for any advice
  9. Found at Sandy Hook in the Atlantic Highlands area on a bay side beach.. any thoughts? I haven't done the tongue test, but it does seem to 'stick' to a damp finger.

    Turtle Fossil from SC Beach?

    Normally we only go out shell hunting, but recently learned a bit about fossils and shark teeth here in SC. So we found this on our first trip on the beach. Might it be a plastron bone? We're very new at this hobby so any help on the species and time period would be appreciated (if it is a fossil).
  11. Please don't judge me for asking too much, I'm still a newbie at this ❤️ Additional info: found at Anyer beach, Indonesia

    South Carolina beach fossil

    She’s about an inch long. Found on Folly beach in South Carolina. Any ideas? Thanks!

    Port Huron, Michigan trip

    I drive 8 hours with a friend to a location he remembers from his childhood as yielding a lot. Oh boy it did. 100% worth the drive. Lake Huron, among the agates, pyrite, yooperlite, has some extraordinary Devonian fossils. All fossils were collected from the beach of his family’s property except for the fenestelid bryozoan, which was found at a gas station on the way there. please enjoy this collection of gastropods, petoskey stones, various tabulate corals, crinoids, stromatoporoids, bivalves, Brachiopods, tenteculites, horn corals, an unidentified agatized fossil in jasper matrix

    Help ID FL beach fossil

    I appreciate all help! Thank you in advance. 68782332732__7D877EF6-5192-446F-BAB6-41C7039F2F03.MOV

    Crab? Crustacean? Skull?

    I came across this one today and am stumped as to what it is. It comes from a Queensland beach, Australia in a location where I mostly only find crabs and shells. There really isn’t any information on the age of the rock that they come from. The best guess is from a paper written in the late 1800’s suggesting a date of around 10,000 years. Judging by the gradient of rock colour/type I suspect some are much older.
  16. Good morning! I share with you two findings that, as a rookie, I have collected with great enthusiasm on the beach in Alicante, a mediterranean city in Spain. The first, I think they are two small fossils collected in a small stone. The second, if I'm honest, I think it could be a bone. He was on the shore of the sea, among the stones. To the touch and to the sight, it did not seem like a conventional bone to me, but when I looked closely, I seemed to appreciate that it has an articulation socket area at both ends. I found it curious to say the least and I share it with y
  17. Last weekend after a windy week I decided to go to the beach of Katwijk aan Zee (Netherlands) to see what fossils had washed up. It was a lovely walk along the North Sea. Mammal remains from the Pleistocene (part of the Neogene period) sometimes wash up on the Dutch coast. The bone material comes from layers that are eroded below the sea surface. In the Pleistocene the North Sea was a kind of tundra plain where various animals lived such as woolly mammoth and rhinoceros, the giant deer, eland, wild horses, red deer, musk oxen, steppe bison, cave bear, cave

    Vertebra ID

    Anyone know what this might be from? Found on in shell beds on beach in northeast Florida.

    Shark Teeth?

    Could anyone verify if these are sharks teeth?

    Various (bones?)

    Who loves the sound of fossils tinkling against each other? Just me? What, oh what, could these be? Picture of fronts and then of the backs. You guys are so educational and kind to newbies.
  21. Hello. I picked this up the other day thinking it was wood, but on a closer look I could see webbing, with a bone like structure, however it is really worn. Would anyone have an idea on what it may belong too if it is indeed a bone? Found in a Cretaceous beach site, South Island, New Zealand. Many thanks in advance.
  22. Hello, I was wondering if anyone could help me ID this possible reptilian bone? I found it at a late Cretaceous beach site in the South Island of New Zealand, often rich with marine reptilian fossils. It looks like there is a lot of holes where there used to be calcite? and is well water-worn.

    Hey all, new here so sorry if this isn’t the way to do this…is anyone able to help identify what animal this may have come from. It was found on a small portion of beach below a cliff with a lot of erosion in WNY south of Buffalo. Not sure if it came from soil or lake…either way it seems on the heavier side and I’m thinking it might be a phalange from a deer figured I’d see if anyone could help confirm or come up with a different ID
