  1. What Kind Of Fossil?

    I found at the beach in Malibu California last week. The size is about 3 1/2 inch by 4 and 2 1/2 inch thick .Does anyone know what kind of fossil this is? Any input would be great. Thank you
  2. Hello, My name is Lori and i am new. Can someone please tell me if these are fossils? I found them at the beach in Malibu, California a month ago. the first one is about 5 inch. by 3 1/2 . The next one is about 3 1/3 by 3 1/2 . Thank you for any input.
  3. Hey everyone! been away for a while while i moved from Sydney to QLD! I was fishing waist deep on a beach the other day and this slid past my foot! How awesome is that! I almost wet met myself further with excitment! This is the first shark tooth fossil ive ever found! I Googled the type of fossil and the location and absolutely no results.. Do you get random wash-ups on sandy beaches? or is it likely there will be more somewhere being exposed by the tides? Here's a shot of the front and back! No idea what species South east QLD - Australia Height: 4.0cm ( 1.57in ) Width at base: 2.7cm ( 1.06in ) Shark tooth Fossil by Jace Austin, on Flickr
  4. Hello all! I have another question. I realize the weather is obviously different in the winter, wind, etc. But I have noticed a difference in my shark tooth hunting. It SEEMS like there are not as many teeth as in the summer. Is this possibly due to the difference in the currents? Or perhaps the amount of churning under the breaker areas bringing results ( as in teeth and bones) to the shore? I was reading a book that talked about seasonal changes of surf, swash, etc-does anyone have any comments or can add to this? I hunt the southern Grand Strand area of SC, and am a newbie, so any helpful suggestions are welcome! I seem to have the best luck hunting the wave edges during high to mid-tide. Low tide I don't seem to find anything during this winter season. Thanks!
  5. What Fossil Is This?

    Found in Fujairah beach, UAE 20 years ago in the midst of snail shells and corals. This has wheel-like spokes on one side, and on the back and sides there are dots(knots/holes?). What kind of fossil is it?
  6. Megalodon Tooth

    Hello everyone, I am on vacation in the North Carolina beaches and i was strolling the beach at about 330 pm at low tide and i found this huge meg tooth about 5 inches long and it was nearly perfect, i was so elated i literally almost cried when i saw it laying there in about 6 inches of water.. anyways my question is if this is a rare thing to find on the shore, or is it a common occurrence? I appreciate any feedback! (btw, no i did not purchase this tooth!!! i do not[attachment purchase teeth, i would not be wasting my time on this post right now!!) hopefully the pic shows up. if it does not please let me know!!
  7. Identifying Bone Found On Beach

    My wife and I were walking on Crooked Island beach, just west of Mexico Beach, Florida, and about 30 miles east of Panama City Beach. We were looking for shells and found this bone about 10 feet off the beach in the water. It is heavy and grainy. I am sure it is a bone of some sort but not sure exactly what. I'll post more pictures of the bone next to a ruler when I get home. I am just curious to see if anyone has any idea what it could be. I've never found a bone in the ocean and don't know much about them. If anyone is able to help me identify this, I would appreciate it. Thanks. Keith
  8. Sea Urchin?

    My eight year old daughter found this on Holden Beach, NC yesterday. I'm guessing it's a fossilized sea urchin? We're homeschoolers and I'd love to get her started researching more about it!
  9. Plant Fossils?

    Is this a fossil on this rock? I found down beach a while ago its been a good deco but I would love to know, anybody???
  10. Horse Middle Phalanx?

    Good morning to everyone, Today I found on the shore of a beach in Spain this bone (the image is attached to the post). To me it seems like a Middle Phalanx of a horse, am I right? The age of the sediments in the zone goes from Pleistocene to Holocene. Thanks!
  11. Spongy Coral Looking Bone?

    I have no idea what this is, maybe out of a crab net from bait not sure.. Someone please help me out
  12. Please Help Me Id These!

    Hi there - I've been living on the Outer Banks for a few years, and been visiting for 28 years and this week I found 3 of these "fossils". I have never come across anything like this here on the Outer Banks before. I am not sure if that's what these could be. Can anyone please help me to identify these three pieces? Thanks a lot!
  13. I've just come back from a trip to Yorkshire where I managed to do a little fossil hunting and was lucky enough to find this ammonite. The problem is though is that generally the preservation in the area wasn't great and this one is clearly covered in a mudstone/ shale type of rock. However I think it might be worth trying to remove the surrounding rock because the small bit which I can see seems to have preserved fairly well. However I don't know the best way to remove it, see i'm not very comfortable with chiseling it away because I'm fairly new to this so would probably end up ruining it! I've been told that it may work if I was to put it into the oven to warm it up and then put it into cold water which could 'shock' the fossil to break along lines of weakness but I'm not sure if it would work or not. I've tried to post a picture of the fossil here but I'm not sure if its worked so if not here's a link: http://s1069.photobucket.com/user/zozzy-zebra/media/IMG_0003_zps69eb4cbf.jpg.html Any suggestions of how I can remove my ammonite would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
  14. Wondering what Sea animal this Purple tooth came from?. I found on tide line close to recent excavations in bay area today. Please help me identify. Thanks.
  15. Animal Pelvis? Odd Beach Find.

  16. Help With Bone Id

    Well, I thought I was digging a big tooth out of the sand this morning and this is what I found. Any thoughts?
  17. Please help me ID this very neat vert (?) I found it on a beach in NE Fl. last week. Hope the pictures are acceptable, Grateful for this forum, your time, expertise or opinions! THANK YOU fer lookin'! Happy Hunting, To All!!!
  18. I went to Venice beach expecting to only find Fossil sharks teeth(which seems kinda silly now) but when I got there I found an array of other fossils like petrified wood, sting ray barbs and teeth, turtle shell pieces, etc. It's not very crowded on the week days and there's tons of wildlife too, so I'd certainly recommend taking a trip there
  19. Georgetown/garden City Sc

    We are heading thru Charleston to Garden City for several days. We are currently in Tampa. Any ideas on land sites/creeks/beach renourishment in the Garden City SC area? We've heard Burches Ferry but it appears closer to Florence. We'll spend some time searching the Edisto area while in Charleston, but most of our time during the trip will be spent in Garden City, and in the past, beach finds have been slim (as usual if there are no renourishment projects). Thanks!
  20. Annelid Fossil?

    Hiya, had this fossil for a few months now and i've been wondering what it is. My geology teacher seems to think it is an annelid worm but i'd like to know a little bit more. Thanks. Date: 27th November 2012 Location: Whitesands Beach, Pembrokeshire. Rock Type: Limestone Rock Age: Cambrian (I think) Dimensions: 4.8cm x 0.5cm #1 #2 #3
  21. Calvert Cliffs, Md

    These are my recent finds from a March 2013 trip to Calvert Cliffs, MD. The image you see is of the Maryland state fossil, Ecphora. Didn't find an intact megaladon this time, but I'll go back out.
  22. Fossil Or Rock?

    I found this walking on the beach in South Carolina. Can't tell if it is a fossil or a really strange shaped rock. Thinking it is a fossil due to the symmetry of the groves on both sides. Looks like some kind of joint bone or vertebrae. It is heavy like a rock but just seems too symmetrical to be one. Help me out!!
  23. What Kind Of Tooth?!

    I am visiting my parents on the gulf coast & decided to go to the beach to find some shark teeth. The nearby beach is famous for shark teeth, Manisota Beach, & we found over 100 in just a couple hours. However we also found the below tooth & I was wondering what it is from. It is over 1/2" long & about 3/8" in diameter. Any ideas what this could be?
  24. Horse Teeth

    Hello All, Though I have been a member for a few months, this is my first post. You all find such cool stuff! I wanted to share two horse teeth I found on the beach here on the Treasure Coast. Being that the larger one was my first, I was thrilled to have found it! The last one, I do not know what kind of teeth they are, maybe you can help? Thanks!
