  1. Can someone help me identify this "claw looking" fossil I found yesterday at Peace River in Arcadia, Florida. Many thanks!
  2. Possible Crab Claw Fragment?

    Ive had this little piece for a while, and had not really given it much attention until I ran into someones fossils from south florida, in which they had a tiny almost identical looking fragment. Heres a photo of mine, located last year at Calvert Cliffs!
  3. Possible tooth?

    Found this in a river a few years ago, and liked to believe it is a tooth. However unsure of true identification, and its very possible its just a stone. The base however looks similar to how a tooth does below the gum line, with pronounced difference in textures, which has led meto belive it maybe more than a rock. Please help. I can supply better images if needed.
  4. Florida claw tip

    I bought this many years ago in a bag of Floridian fossils. Any ideas?
  5. It's been awhile since I posted so I thought I would share a few recent buys. These two claws are definitely some of my grail fossils. Enjoy!! Allosaurus hand claw, digit 2:
  6. Cretaceous Claw

    I have been sifting / sorting through some additional matrix from the cretaceous, Albian of central Queensland Australia and have found another claw this time broken at both ends. The blood groove is present on both sides and it appears in this specimen it appears the blood vessel also goes into the claw on both sides. I am unsure if this is normal in some specific animals. Due to size I am guessing bird as the layer the fossil comes from was laid in the middle of a cretaceous sea so to far for a small animal to swim. The scale in the photos is in millimetres so the specimen is 7 mm at the longest point and 1.5 mm wide. Thanks in advance for any information or leads that can give additional information on this specimen. Mike D'Arcy

  14. Snakeskin tooth?

    This looks tooth shaped but has a pattern like reptile skin or alligator. The one pic I am pointing to end that is broken off and where you can see it's bone. The pattern is different on each side. Best image I can get though blurry where details can be made out. I give up what is it?
  15. Good Evening, I just got back from Bastrop, Texas with a rock that appears to contain a fossil. There may be more than just the obviously different item begging to be identified so I will post pictures showing more views. The height difference of the center cleavage is roughly 1mm. I'm inclined to think this is a foot claw or, because of the area, a sea creature. It may be nothing but a rock within a rock. What do y'all think this is? Any help is much appreciated. -Scott
  16. Adding color to bones

    Just curious what the general consensus is here for adding color back into specimens that have been faded out. Some of the most common ideas I have heard is furniture polish. I have a hard time believing that there is no company out there that has specific materials for this. I would think that a company like Paleo BOND would have some sort of color products fro people to use. Any help and suggestions would be much appreciated. Sincerely, J
  17. Could this fossil be a claw?

    Could this fossil possible be a claw? It was found near Houston Tx by dredging. Thanks much.
  18. Peace river claw or tooth?

    I found this by walking in to the Peace River at a boat ramp and sifting, any help is appreciated! There is natural wrinkles on one side
  19. Giant ground sloth claw tip

    Collected in 1998. Found in a spoil pile left by quarrying activity. Site is now closed and under water.
  20. I have this tooth and know nothing about it. Anyone know what kind it is and the value? Thanks! It's a little larger than 4.75 inches
  21. This fossil is a claw from a Hell Creek microsite in Montana (Carter county to be precise). It measures just under 7/16" of an inch wide on its side view by 1 1/16" inches in length. It's from the Cretaceous period and is missing its proximal end.
  22. Tooth?

    I found this about 10 miles north of Aviano Italy. It was found on a trail in the foothills of the mountain. It was on the side of a rock wall with loose dirt. I don't have to many other details.
  23. Help on the ID Claw

    Hi Guys. I'm new here and to be honest I've lost my intrest in archeology some time ago. But I've found a box with all my fossils back from when I was crazy about it and I'm wandering: could you help me with identifying what I got and perhaps how much is it worth (if anything). This is my most interesting find. I think it might be claw or a fang. You can't see it on the pic, but on the second photo there's a halo of red tissue surrounding the core of this thing. Might be a well preserved nerve?
  24. Dinosaur Claw / Horn

    I found this in the Colorado river in Garfield, Texas. Seems to me like a jointed claw / horn type thing with a Keratin sheath. Any ideas?
