  1. Hey guys, I have a special creek site close to me in South Florida. it yields marine fossils of every kind and even some artifacts. I have found many pieces of dugong bone with a strange circular indentation, and I’m really hoping someone can help me out with determining what causes this? I have found fossils of a huge variety of Pliocene/Miocene marine animals, and dugong bones are the only bones with such markings. There is a raised center and an almost perfect circular depression around it.
  2. Hello everybody, I'm sorry for making thread about ID mixed fossil types,but I didn't want to open multiple threads for such a small specimens as they aren't something ''special'',but small specimens that I would like to properly ID. They were bought from one small fossil shop that sells fossils,meteorites,amber,dinosaur teeth and those kind of things. They are fairly small shop,but they have nice collection of small affordable fossils for sale. I bought them years ago and I always wanted to get proper ID of them,but my camera wasn't good at the time and I always ha

    Identification help needed pls

    Can anyone identify any of these bones found by my 7 year old at Wapping pls? We went to look for the gallows at the Prospect of Whitby pub and literally stumbled upon these. She’s very excited to find out what they belonged to and has taken some to school today! We are thinking cow or horse due to sheer size and weight. Thank you ..

    Bone with odd shape?

    Really odd shape from Calvert formation of Virginia/Maryland. Any idea what kind of bone or what it’s from?

    Dromaeosaur bones question

    I am doing some research on dromaeosaur bones, and I only found limited data and pictures on the web. I am particularly looking for caudal vertebrae and ribs pictures and structures. So I make an attempt towards TFF members knowledge and data !

    Some bones from Mistelgau

    Recently I visited a clay pit near Mistelgau in Bavaria. It's a kinda famous quarry because of the "belemnite battle field". Huge plates with hundreds/thousands belemnites come from there. But you can also findother fossils like ammonites and also bones. I already was there a few times and I mainly found ammonites and of course belemnites. But this time I also found some bones in the area of the Belemnite battle field. They were just laying therebut it was kinda difficult to find them because they are round, Belemnites are round etc. so I more or less crawled through the quarry

    I’m stumped what this is

    Hello, Newbie here. These are my 9 year olds “dino rocks” as she calls them. All I know is my elderly neighbor gave them to her as his grandkids were grown up now. He had no back story on them at all. He said they were eggs and look really cool. The larger one is 11 lbs! Please any help for my daughter would be great. This is our first post so go easy on us. Lol thank you. ( I did read some of the “newbie” post.)
  10. 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

    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.
  13. 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
  14. 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.

  16. 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!
  17. 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.

    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!
  25. 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
