  1. bat bone

    Hi Is this bat bone? Is this fossil? Location: Twardovski Cave , Kraków , Southern Poland
  2. What is this?

    im not sure what this is but its beautiful. found in a rock pile with corals, and many other rocks and fossils. is this a type of sea coral? or is this a rock. it makes me think of cave formations. any feedback appreciated. its 25 inches in diameter.
  3. I recently went hiking in the mountains of Kapchorwa District, Uganda. I went inside a cave and found what could be the leg bone of an animal in the ceiling of the cave, about 2-3.5 metres above the cave floor. I'm not currently sure what animal it is but I have a feeling it's a hippo's leg bone or the leg bone of a genus of proboscid such as Palaeoloxodon, Loxodonta, Deinotherium, Gomphotherium or Anancus. I want to dig it out, but I'm wondering how I can do it safely. Any tips would be greatly appreciated. Sincerely, FossilsOfKenya PS: Sorry for the poor quality of the image. I only had my phone when I found it so I had to digitally enhance it.
  4. Hi all, I hope someone can help me ID these items I've been finding for about a year now in and by a local creek in Sullivan County, TN. I've shown them to staff at the Nature Center of a nearby park and to various others who have an interest in such things, and no one has been able to say for sure what they are. I've had theories from corals to beads to stalactites (helictites, actually) to burrow casts. All are tube-like, all have holes through them (a few have one end closed, but not many) some have a bumpy, pebbly surface and some are smooth. The biggest is 1 1/2 to 2 inches in length. The area is known for Ordovician finds, and has a lot of caves and sinkholes. I also find a lot of quartz crystals and small (< 1") geode-type rocks in this creek, and the occasional Woodland period artifact. There is an abundance of chert/flint, and unfinished knapped pieces aren't uncommon. I'm anxious to hear your theories and ideas. Thanks much.

  20. What kind of bones are these?

    Hello, I found these bones in the back of a cave in Macedonia this summer. I first noticed the big bone in the first picture, and after removing some stones I found the rest of the bones that you see lying in the back of the first picture. I do not know anything about fossils, so I am wondering what the opinion of the experts on this forum is. At the moment, I already got two expert opinions, but both are saying something completely different! I will let you know what they said later, in order not to bias you... Hopefully you can help me solve this...Thanks in advance! Dennis

  25. My Own Cave Bear

    Just wanted to share a new fossil I bought some days ago. It's the right side of a mandible from a cave bear (Ursus spelaeus). It's about 40,000 years old, 30 cm (12 in.) long, and was found in Romania. I find ice age mammals really interesting, so I'm happy I got this!
