    My Collection

    Hi everyone on Fossil Forum, I am pretty new to fossil collection but I have decided to post what I have currently collected and will continue to update this page with new fossils that I acquire over time. I am now looking to acquire rarer teeth now! Details of Specimen: Triceratops Tooth Hell Creek Formation, Carter County, Montana Late Cretaceous Period (65 Million Years Old) Measurements: 1.5 inches long x 3/4 inch wide x5/8 inch thick Weight: 8.9 Grams No restoration at all. all natural specimen. I love the way this looks and its huge!
  2. Hi all - as I was looking along a stretch of creek in Northeast Austin, TX today, I saw a section with a bunch of bones eroding out of the creekside. I’m not sure how to tell if they are something fossilized or old and worth looking at, or just modern bones of some animal that somehow got buried in the strata. The loose piece I picked up did feel pretty lightweight, but other than that I couldn’t tell much. Any ideas if these are fossils or recently deposited bones, and what they might be? Thanks!

    Fossilized bones?

    This was found in my backyard in Waco, Texas. Its heavy, has petroglyphs and bones. Looks like a human skull. Strangest thing is there is piece of metal embedded in it.

    Kem Kem +x bones and teeth

    Hello dear fellow forum members, I have been offered a bundle of bones and teeth from one of the formations subsumed under "kem kem", although the more blackish ones seem to be of a different preservation than the "classic". There are quite some interesting pieces in there, amongst some turtle bones I think. I would be grateful for any hints on ID you can give me. first some of the tentative turtles.
  5. Hi, I would like to buy this fossil, but I don’t know if it is a real fossil because I am not expert, it is a spinosaurus claw. can you please help me ? thank you very much
  6. Hello again forum! Remember that bucket “goodie bag” I took home from the torn up Post Oak Creek a few months ago? I finally went through it and found some excellent stuff! (Im actually wow’d with some of this stuff because I’m just an amateur!) Surprisingly- I found tons of other stuff that ARENT shark teeth for once! I grabbed a 5 quart bucket and took a big shovel scoop of gravel/mud from various parts of the entrance of the creek where the construction was and some from the first sandbar. Im working on an educational frame display I might actually eventually donate (there IS
  7. I would really appreciate suggestions on the ID of this microfossil (vertebra?) from a portion of what appears to be a coprolite originating from the Woodbine Group (Cenomanian) of Denton County, Texas, USA.
  8. Hello. I found these on a Croatian island - they don't strike me as one of their regular Jurassic finds, as it appears to be more inside a fault of petrified red soil amidst the abundant limestone. They look kinda "new". Can anyone tell me what they are? I found them on two locations. Not a geologist, so no idea. Whale and other large marine life bones? Polished by the sea? After some seizmic event?

    Ohio Glacial Till Fossil

    Hi I’m not knowledgeable in fossils, but I have quite a few I have found while mineral mining. I have come across my first bone fossil on one of our clubs private leases and wanted to share with you all to see if anyone could get me close to an ID. It was found on private property and is obvious it was pushed with glacial till in a creek in north central Ohio. We all usually find marine fossils and this one is not an ordinary find. Thank you all and enjoy the pics. David

    Is this a bone?

    Hello everyone! Just yesterday by a river in south central Indiana I found this. It did not look like a normal rock so I decided to keep it. I think it is a bone, but I cannot tell what kind of bone it is or how old it is. Is it a bone and if so, what kind?

    Any idea what hadrosaur this is from?

    Identified by a palaeontologist as a hadrosaur vertebra and I would like to get some clarification. It’s 3-4 inches long and 2-2.5 inches wide. Found in Horseshoe Canyon Alberta.
  23. I have no experience identifying fossils/bones, but while hiking near the Olentangy River recently, in Franklin County, Ohio, USA, I noticed what appeared to be a "thumb" consisting of three bones that appeared to have recently been uncovered as the dirt and debris surrounding the area where I noticed it was slightly disturbed. I've taken a series of pictures of it, and it appears to be possibly a thumb-like appendage, but the end bone is triangular and somewhat resembles a shark tooth. Curious if anybody may be able to identify what these bones may belong to, as I haven't the slightest clue.

    Help me ID a few items, please :)

    Hi again! I have a few pieces I need help with. Some of them I'm sure they are fossils, other not so much. All of them found in Maryland and Virginia (US) by the water. Thank you so much beforehand!!! PD - Sorry about my 'useless' coin but I don't have a printer or a measuring tape. The coin is 1 inch / 2.5 cm 1 - maybe some skin? 2 - bone, any ideas of what it might be? 3 - This one I don't know whether it is a fossil or not. 4 - I think this is just a fun
