    Here is an interesting what appears to be a huge foot... this rock is approximately 18in in length... definitely not normal from our perspective in today's time... just curious about your thoughts...

    Dinosaur bone

    I am very curious what exactly this is....can anyone help me identify this fossil...was discovered in california.
  3. On a couple of recent trips to the Whitby coast my daughter and I collected quite a few chunks of a large septarian nodule (or perhaps more than one nodule, though everything was collected in a small area) containing bones. Most of the pieces we found just contain ribs, but one piece contains a couple of larger bones. I’ve had a go at prepping the two best bits, is anyone able to suggest what the bones might have belonged to? Thanks for looking FullSizeRender.mov
  4. Good day everyone, I found a couple of fossils today on a beach walk and was wondering what most of them were. I suspect the one shark tooth belongs to a prehistoric great white and the other a juvenile meg as the tooth is the thickest shark tooth I've ever picked up - unfortunately it is damaged. As for the rest I am absolutely clueless and would appreciate any help with identification. Thank you.

    Please help me figure out what this is
  6. Visero

    any info would be wonderful!

    This was recovered near a gold mine in western Montana. I have absolutely no idea what it is. any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
  7. Hello, We found this item in a crop field when out on a hike and would greatly appreciate any help to identify whether it is a bone or something else. It looks like the end of a bone, the ball bit that goes into the joint or maybe not? We first thought it was human or mammal but then saw it was fossilized rock with signs of wear and tear and maybe teeth marks. Also we can see what looks like fossilized pinkish marrow in the middle of the bone that is more prominent than the picture shows (sorry) with little air pockets. There was also lots of rocks and interesting bits and piece

    Peace River and Key West Fossil

    I went to peace river a couple years ago one time. Went to one park - was pretty much over picked with craters everywhere. Found those in one illegal dug banks pit. They're the most easily identified pieces I could find - rest was just bone pieces, ark shell molds, and pieces of shells. Second picture is when I went to key west one time there was calcite pieces spread all over the beach - not too far from the fort. Two pieces of calcite had strong resembles to teeth. Third picture is the best I could find from the pieces of bones that I had found at peace river.

    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!

    Bones in TX

    Found some bones sticking out of the creek bank in Central TX. Area has confirmed Mastodon remains. Tusks and a tooth all found within 1/4 mile of this site. Bones are 12 feet below the top of the bank. I did a little digging around today to get a feel for what it could be. It appears it could be a large pelvis bone (4-5 feet wide). I also found a small bone that appears to be from the foot/toes etc. Not really sure how I should proceed. Is there any educational value in this type of bones? Who would one contact to ask? I am sure Mastodon bones are fairly common.

    Is this fossilized bone?

    Found in Manistee County Michigan. Can anyone help to identify?

    Old collection fossil id

    I am unable to identify these pieces from my grandad's collection. He is now unable to clearly see and so sadly couldn't identify it. It must be something, he was a zoologist and the shale meant enough to have a crack repaired. Parts look like bones to me. I'd love to get these identified so I can prep them, making them clearer so he can see them clearer again.

    Peace River findings

    My husband and I found these 3 bones in the Peace River in Florida. Can anyone identify them for us? This is my first time posting, so I hope the pictures are OK. Thank you so much!
  16. Back on the Peace River yesterday. Another cool start to the day, 63* F when I launched at 8:00am. Headed back to where I found the camel cuboid last week and found there was still plenty of gravel to sift through. The morning progressed with a couple of nice, if partial, alligator teeth, many small shark teeth (nearly 200 by the end of day) a partial deer tooth and a couple of turtle leg spurs (5 for the day). The afternoon produced a couple of unidentified bones I will have to research and a very nice Llama astragalus - Hemiauchenia macrocephalus. Makes sense after finding the cuboid la

    Hell Creek bones

    Hello, What are the thoughts on these two bones. No positive id given or a county more specific than Hell Creek Montana and said as possibly a toe bone. There are two bones. The first one has a bunch of photos and is approximately 2cm long. The 2nd one only has just two photos --- is number 2 the end of a metatarsal? Number 2 is approximately 3 cm long. Sorry there's not much more info on location. Thanks for the help

    NJ Cretaceous ID Help

    Hello, I need some help identifying the owner of my bone collection. Long story short, I have been obessed with collecting some reptile like fossil bones in various states of preservation from my local beach over the last year. I have probably about 30 in total. Each day, I'd go back down to the site to see what had rolled in. Most are small "finger like" bits but, these are my favorites of the bunch. Anyway please have a look and I would be thrilled if someone might help to id and let me know if I have discovered something cool here. I am in a nj coastal cretaceous area.
  19. Hi all, I recently purchased these 2 bone segments labeled as dinosaur bones from Morocco. They both are solid like a rock and feel dense like a piece of petrified wood. The ends have been cut and polished. They certainly look like bone to me but they are somewhat small. Other than their petrified like feel they look like they could have come from a modern animal. I don't see any indication of tree rings like petrified wood may have. What do you think, are they bone? Could they be millions of years old? Fakes? Thanks for taking time to look at these. 7 pictures for bone 1 below
  20. I'm a new dino fossil enthusiast and purchased this large rock, my favorite piece. It is from Morocco and contains 2 mososaur teeth with roots and many other what appear to be bone or shell fragments. The rock is gritty and you can't touch it without traces of sandlike grit falling off. I sure hope this real? Thank you. Jeff

    I think I found a fossilized bone

    Hello, yesterday I was on a trip and found a rock that I think is a fossilized bone. I know this rock doesn't look like much but please don't judge it too fast because if you look closely it kind of has the shape of a bone, I don't know if I managed to capture the shape of it in the pictures and to me it reminds the shape of a Homo sapiens shoulder. please tell me your thoughts and ideas

    Weird piece of bone/ scute.

    Hello, I found this piece 2 weeks ago on the beach of Breskens in Zeeland. I don’t know what it is and there were not several options. I get stuck with this piece of bone. I hope that someone know what it is! The sizes are in cm.

    Big Brook, NJ - Bones

    Beyond the shark teeth I acquired these two bones from a recent trip looking for fossils in Big Brook, NJ. Not sure how to differentiate if this is recent or from the Late Cretaceous associated with the others fossils found in the brook.

    Cow or bison bones?

    First let me say I did the burn test having never done it before, got the same faint smell from each. Then had to burn some of my hair for comparison, omg that was horrible! So I'm not sure ad far as that. All these came from part of creek in Dallas county that is very close to Trinity river, it is QAL on one side QT on the other. I know the smaller bone isn't cow just thought it was interesting. So I'm ready for my lesson in bones!
