    Basilosaurus bone block

    Figured I would share my recent project, a Basilosarus bone block found by myself in AL. Got alot of work to do and wish the jaw section had complete teeth, but who knows whats else lies in the matrix. Some pretty cool crystals throughout. Let me know your thoughts

    Morrocan fossil bone

    Hiya everyone last year I bought a box of mixed kem kem material, today I decided to prepare a small bone fragment from them in the nice weather, I know bone chunks can be hard to identify but I noticed this piece has a few characteristic areas so hopefully is identifiable, many thanks George.
  3. Hello! I wonder if anyone would be kind enough to look at this for me and help confirm it’s ID? I’m quite inexperienced and when I found this over the winter, I crammed as much info on ID-ing bone as I could and concluded it was wood / plant material. I find a lot of wood in this area, so that makes sense. It happened to be in the background of a photo I posted to Instagram, and someone said they’re sure it’s bone - so I thought I’d double check here. It’s from the Helmsdale, North of Scotland - Jurassic-aged Portgower Boulder Beds member (157.3 - 152.1 mya, Kimmer
  4. After much consideration; I decided to allow someone else, to introduce me to their local fossil rich area. At the Bone Valley Fossil Farm; the owners have used heavy equipment to remove the upper 12 feet of sandy topsoil. Doing so, exposes Megalodon era fossil layers. The fossil layer is then dug out with heavy equipment, and is piled up at wet screening wash stations on the owner's property. This is a paid access fossil site, and all necessary wet screening equipment is furnished for you. I found a good variety of fossils; during 6 1/2 hours of frantic, almost non

    Possible Fossil Bone Find?

    Greetings, Please review the attached photographs to determine whether this specimens is actual bone (versus rock). - Location: San Antonio, TX (may not be helpful in identification since the specimen was found in landscape rock). Same landscape rock where I previously found part of a mammoth tooth. Local construction supervisor was unsure of landscape rock source. - Description: Sponge-like formations throughout. Appears to be marrow on two ends. Brought home and rinsed with water and dried. - Scale is in inches - Weight is 557 grams.
  6. Hello! I found this in a field in Southern Texas. To me, it looks like a tooth....but now I'm beginning to think I've got tunnel vision. Please help me identify this mysterious rock....or fossil....or tooth. Thanks for any insight!

    Is this a fossil

    Found in a disused quarry in Oxfordshire.
  8. Hi, Discovered this bone today in water, in Big Brook Preservation in Colts Neck, NJ. Site is known for late Cretaceous period deposits. Haven't a clue as to what animal this may have been (deer or beaver?), and was never good at anatomy, so I'm not even going to take a guess at which part of the body the bone came from. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I can provide more photos if needed. Thanks in advance!

    Fossil Found in Frio River

    Hello everyone. I was at the Frio River and found a symmetrical bone-like fossil after weeks of heavy rainfall. It was found in the plunge pool. The shape of this is very interesting and it is very porous, though I can’t tell if it’s bone or some type of sea specimen. Any help with identification is very much appreciated.

    What is this?

    Found this in Morrison clay. This is what is uncovered, not sure sure if it’s petrified bone or plant. Any ideas ? In southeast colorado.

    Possible whale, or cetacean fossil bone

    Hi pretty sure this is fossil whale cetacean bone, found near Newport Beach California. Was looking for a second opinion. Also could I clean these pieces up with a soak in vinegar?
  13. So I found this today… I originally saw the hollow end and thought sloth tooth. But the side where the chewing surface would be is devoid of the enamel ring. However I’ve certainly seen sloth teeth that are worn down enough that the enamel is missing. However it looks like there’s enamel on the broken/hollow/supposed root end - a very thin layer though. The hollow end also has growth rings like a shark vertebra, and with the indent down the side, also points to vert. But it’s only on one side, not the other, which is smooth. That same indent also seems to rule out rib bone, as far

    BIG BROOK Fossil Finds

    My first trip to big brook with the boys yielded lots of cool stuff. I’m a fossil noob but read all the forum posts, facebook, big brook website, fossil guy sit, etc before posting. I have some other pictures to post but these i feel are the strongest change of “being something” What is everyone’s thoughts? coolest stuff i think we have, crab arms/claw, a shrimp?, jaw bone, enamel from dinosaur teeth, shark teeth, fossil clams, impressions of clams, sea turtle bone. I am least sure of 9d though i’m hoping it is a tooth of some kind, could very well be a rock!

    Matoaka Beach MD

    Hello, my 6 yr old has shown some interest in geology and fossils so we went on a day trip to fossil hunt at Matoaka Beach in Saint Leonard, MD. We found a few things on the beach that we wanted to give her more information on to help fuel her interest. My husband and I are clueless about this stuff, so just wanted to ask if anyone had some interesting little tidbits about the attached pictures that we could share with her. Thanks in advance!

    Is this a worn dinosaur ungual?

    This is probably a long shot but I figure I’d post it anyway because I’m really not sure what bone this chunk could be from… This is a large chunk of bone (over 15 cm in diameter) from the Hell Creek Formation with a unique shape. A personal find. It’s rounded on one end but tapers at the other, however at the tapering end it’s fairly obviously broken whereas the rounded end appears to simply be weathered. One side is convex like a dome whereas the other side is concave like a bowl. The entire piece is heavily weathered, although there is some intact cortical bone in the concave si

    Large Wood or bone fragments ?

    Various chunks of the same material found towards Coventry Any help on identifying whether it's bone or wood would be hugely appreciated
  23. Hi, i am a newbie. I have found this piece in the rubble looks like it eroded from the mountain, the geology is mainly early to mid Cretaceous, looks like some sort of bone, possibly a piece of vertebrae concave with three extrusions, the piece is about 10cm wide

    What is this?

    This is a bone from the Pleistocene era in Northern Montana where I live. Does anyone know what it is?
