  1. Cave Bear Claw

    hey i have a question bear paws which offer sellers the world are funniest? I'm talking about those that sell on ebay.com http://www.ebay.com/itm/B-J-F-CAVE-BEAR-Paw-belonging-to-Ursus-spelaeus-Large-/380610493050?pt=UK_Collectables_RocksFossils_Minerals_EH&hash=item589e273a7a good one?
  2. Claw

    Hi I'm new here and I inherited some rocks from my brother who passed last year. This one stood out. It looks like a claw and is slightly less smaller than the size of my hand. My brother was an avid spelunker in the 80's and this would probably be from western Massachusetts. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks
  3. Claw Core? Montana Area

    Any ideas on this? It was found by a fellow artefact collector on the Montana/Idaho border in what is believed to be a Native American camp or rendezvous site. No stratigraphy to help here and it has been transported from its original location. Other lithic items were found with it and it has preferential wear to the tip which suggests it may have been used as a tool. My initial reaction was claw core from something like an allosaurid until the finder provided more pictures showing the deep striations on the other side and then I was doubtful. Any views greatly appreciated.
  4. Whale And Porpoise Teeth?

    I have two teeth shown below. The long skinny ones I have been told are whale teeth and the other I was told is a porpoise tooth. I found images in a book showing it may be a wolf sized dog, a seal or or possible a whale shark. Anyone have any opinions? I have a few of both in a display shot in the last image. Thanks in advanced for the input!
  5. Tooth, Claw Or Spur?

    I'm new to the forum and to fossil hunting, and this is my first time posting for ID. I found a fossil that is interesting, but I can't identify. It was found in the Peace River around Gardner, Hardee County FL. I have looked online and have seen fossils that look a little bit like it, but nothing really quite looks like it. I am familiar with the common teeth found in the Peace River. I tried to get good close up photos that show the details, but the color is a bit washed out. The bottom section is gray with a white bulb on top. It is curved like a tooth or claw. It is a smooth texture overall, not sharp on the end. There is a groove that runs across the top of the bulb, I assume that is where it was attached. I will try to add some additional photos at different angles and better lighting. Thanks for any info on a possible ID.
  6. A Toe,a Claw, Horn,a Tooth?

    I found this in The Little Miami River basin while kayaking in Cincinnati OH sometime in the early 2000's. It is about 1 inch long and 3/4 wide. It looks to me ( I know little to nothing about fossils) like a toe-nail/claw,horn or tooth. Or not...lol. The back looks to have a vein or bone running thru it. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks
  7. Fossil Claw? Port Mulgrave Uk

    Hi, I was wondering if anyone could help me identify this. I went looking for fossils along the coast at Port Mulgrave, North Yorkshire, UK, a few weeks ago and found this among the shale scree near the cliff. I am very amateur but i can spot the common fossils you get there, such as crinoids and shells. I was finding lots of ammonite pieces and a few good whole specimens then i noticed this rock sitting on top of the shale. It has a very claw like shape, but I have no idea if it is a claw, or even a fossil. Its about 9cm in length, 3.5cm wide and 4.5cm in height. The core seems to be a light gray coloured hard rock, with layers of reddish brown rock covering it. The fossils in that area are from the lower Jurassic period. Do you think its a claw or bone? If so what could it be from?
  8. From the album Fluvanna, Texas Road Cut

    Carapace 32mm Long and 25mm Wide Claw 13mm Long, 10mm Wide Found in road cut near Fluvanna
  9. Very Heavy Shark Tooth-Like Stone?

    I found this on the side of the road in Edgefield, SC. I am puzzled on what it is. Any help would be greatly appreciated. It is very heavy. It feels like a metal, but simple magnets do not attract or repel it. The bottom of it. The front of it. (Next to a guitar pick.) The back at which it can stand up on it's own.
