    Big risk of looking silly. I found this on the beach this morning, tooth or shell? Hope the photos are OK, first time poster! Thank you in advance, Kate

    What do I have?

    I believe it’s a tooth. Enamel on two sides. Ends do not look like horse. Any thoughts?
  3. Hello I found this fossil on the beach shore of Lake Huron just north of Port Sanilac, Michigan while visiting. Can someone help identify what it is and maybe how old it is? The fossil image itself is about 3 & 1/2 inches long by 1 & 1/2 inches wide, it appears to have legs on the sides and fins in the back. Thank you!

    Beach find

    Not sure what it is. Doesn’t seem to be a rock.
  5. Hi, I have been combing the beaches of Topsail Island for years and this is the first trip that turned up multiple large finds. Usually my biggest find is the size of a nickel. This year I found over ten that I consider noteworthy…which is strange in itself. But I am having a lot of trouble identifying one in particular. I have attached a few pictures of the tooth in question here. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Usually my finds are very common…tiger, sand tiger, great white, bull, etc. but for some reason, this year turned up many ancient and worn pieces. Any opinions on why

    Tiny (1cm) fossil ID help

    Found this very small possible fossil on a beach near Charleston, SC. The island where it was found is a former dredge spoils site with contents from the bottom of Charleston Harbor. Would love some help to ID this curious little thing. Thank you!

    Similar or not?

    Both of these were found on the beach in South Carolina. They may have nothing in common but have similar characteristics to my eye. The first is approximately 2cm while the second is closer to 3cm. Both are symmetrical though the second is not complete. I look forward to hearing just how far off I am!

    Bone Beach Find

    This bone was found on the beach this morning. It was at the shoreline. I’ve included photos but this is my first post so please let me know if other information is needed. The piece measures 7-10cm. Clearly it is very worn so I don’t know if identification is possible. Any ideas are welcome and appreciated

    Shark tooth or other?

    Hello, Sometimes I collect shells from the beach and the other day I found the one in these pictures. My friend thinks it may be a shark tooth but it looks unlike other shark teeth I've seen. If you have any idea what it may be please let me know! Thank you.
  10. Hi. I am over the moon with this find. I usually find only find 10-20 teeth on the beach each summer. I have only found 3 teeth all summer on the beach. Mainly because I am spending more time with the kids than searching. But tonight was low tide…. Three steps into looking….. so excited it’s 1 inch and perfect!!!!!
  11. Hello everyone - I have a (hopefully) interesting find from the Lake Michigan shoreline around the Leelanau peninsula in Northern Michigan, which I think is likely Devonian in age. It might be difficult to see from the pictures, but there are some small crystals within some of the gaps. Coral? Crinoid? Mollusk/brachiopod internal mold? Geologic? None of the above?

    Just a mammal bone or Jaw bone

    Thought this was a misc bone but then I noticed 3 “sockets”. And on the interior side it looks like teeth markings. Or maybe I just want to believe it’s a jaw bone! Any help would be appreciated.

    What is it?

    Not sure if this is a tooth. If it is , what from?
  14. These two items were found sifting for shark teeth on a beach near Venice Florida. Ruler is in inches, sorry. The larger I believe is a tooth from a herbivore. I'm new and not sure how to differentiate, or if it may be from something else. The smaller one looked like a piece of crab pincher to me, but has a row of round hollows that correspond to the thickness of the piece as it tapers. (Tooth sockets?) The break at the larger end appears to be hollow/filled with sediment.? The tip appears broken off and hollow as well. There are ridges along the length, and it is slightly cur

    Random Beach finds

    I just finished going through some fossils I'd found on the beach here in eastern North Carolina, and I don't know what any of these are. If y'all had any idea, would you please let me know? Thank you! The last picture is of a couple of my favorite finds I have found; a tapir tooth and what I believe to be mouthparts of a porcupine fish.

    Avian Coracoid

    Here is an avian coracoid that I found on the beach in South Carolina. It is from an unidentified off-shore formation that regularly deposits Pleistocene fossils on the shore. I am hoping that someone @Auspex can ID it to genus perhaps. Thanks for looking.
  17. Two additional items found on Manasota Key beach south of Venice, Florida. Item one (3 pictures) is apparently a tooth about 2 cm in width. Any suggestions on what it belonged to? Item two might be a bit of tortoise shell, but I'm not sure, (2 pictures). The concave side of item two shows porous structure I've found in other fragments of bone. Confirmation? Thanks!

    Peace River tooth id?

    Wondering what type of tooth this is. Found on Manasota Key beach, Venice, Florida - Peace River formation. Ideas? Thanks!

    Fossil ID please

    Hello, I found this on Brighstone beach today. Is it anything? It looks like bones to me and they show on both sides. But I'm probably wrong! I think it's iron stone. Thanking you in advance.

    Mineral or Fossil?

    Hi all. Yesterday, I went on my first fossil hunt in about fourteen years. Went back to one of my old haunts, Jan Juc beach on the south coast of Victoria, Australia (Oligocene deposit - mostly mud and sandstone). I was expecting to find the usual - sea urchins, small crabs, coral, sponges etc. Instead I found a big, dark thing. A thing is all I can describe it as - buried in sandstone with the eroded top showing, I initially thought it could be a toe, or maybe some petrified wood. Once I moved the boulder to my garden and attacked it with a small hammer, what popped out was a little puzzlin

    Petrosal for ID

    I found this petrosal on a South Carolina beach near Charleston. I would love to know the animal it belonged to. Is it cetacean @Boesse by any chance? Thanks for looking. Scale is CM.

    Cephalopod fossil?

    Relevant info first: This was found in Petoskey Michigan while looking for Petoskey stones. It was found in partially buried in sand. It is quite large and rather heavy. As pictured in picture 5, there is some sort of opening at the end? I can't get a very good picture of the inside, it's hard to get light where i need it and take a picture. the hole looks to maybe be about a 1/2 mm deep, and less than that wide. I took to reddit, albeit with less detailed photos and was told it was a straight shelled nautiloid cephalopod from the paleozoic, and that it was a brevicone, which I'm hoping someon
  23. Hi all and Seasons Greetings I was wondering if you may be able to give me a clue as to what I found about 5 years ago on a beach in North Yorkshire....not too far away from the beautiful town of Whitby. I was mooching around the rocks at the bottom of the cliff when I came across a 'cluster' of 5 egg shaped stones....I removed just one of the 'eggs' and it now sits proudly on my desk. The flat area that can be seen in the first and second photos is where the item was resting against another in the cluster. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks everyone

    Another interesting beach find

    Down again from Minnesota searching for treasures. I found this a couple days after the last storm on a shell strewn sand bar. Looks like maybe a Dire Wolf tooth sans the root. Looking for confirmation or a id if something else. I have found walrus, ground sloth, and tapir material in the past and another oddity would be nice to add to the collection. Thanks in advance.

    Mammal mandible for ID

    I recently found this nice, if toothless mandible on a S.C. beach. I spent some time trying to compare it with other examples, but am left guessing. It does not compare well with the skunk jawbone that I do have. The alveoli do not line up, so I am wondering about raccoon or opossum ... any help would be appreciated. Thanks for looking.
