    Some sort of claw? IDs appreciated

    Found while a sifting creek in Summerville SC. Thoughts? FullSizeRender.MOV

    What kind of fossil is this?

    What kind of fossil is this? This was found off Pritchett Parkway in Florida in a new development called Brightwater. Alot of guys have found shark teeth out here.
  3. I live North of Portland along the West side of the Willamette river. The house we bought last spring has the most amazing river rock used for the landscaping. As a rock hound I was in heaven. Agates, picture jasper, jade and all kinds of beauties. I also have a lot of petrified wood and bone fragments. I have been finding some possible fossils and have struggled to ID them. Hoping someone might help me rule these in or out as fossils. That will greatly help me classify the things I am finding here at my house.

    Peace River ID Help

    Found this specimen in the Peace River, FL last week. I almost tossed it thinking it was a piece of modern bone but then decided to try and ID it. I have not been successful on my own - maybe looking in the wrong place? The only thing it resembles, to my eyes, is a crab claw. It is hollow and measures 21mm long X 11 MM at its widest. The black portion appears to be enamel. Maybe the tip off a modern crab claw? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Tooth in Tennessee?

    My kids found this in the Harpeth river, about 30 minutes South of Nashville. Any ideas?
  6. Hey guys, Saw this spinosaurus online and looks a bit to "good" for the money. Can anybody tell if its a real or a fake?
  7. This little one is packed full of pretties, mysterious, and wonder! I would love to know about all of the surprises in this one, anyone that can teach me is welcome to shout it out! Have fun with this one! Thank you so much! I am excited to finally know!

    Is it real

    I found this in San Antonio TX within the ground at about 4 inches deep. It looks like a claw of some sort and maybe reptile leg, or arm? Any thoughts?

    Tooth? Claw? Bone? Spear tip?

    New to hunting fossils/shark teeth and found this unknown object, was thinking maybe a tooth or claw but some buddies say maybe bone carved spear tip or something. Found it in a river in southern Alabama with what they tell me is a Eocene formation on the river bank.

    Is this a fossilized claw?

    Hi there, we found this in Stony Mountain, Manitoba, Canada last summer (~Aug 2021) and we're hoping for an ID. We're definitely beginners but love fossil hunting in the quarry down the street, thank you for any help with the pics below!
  11. This was acquired at a swap meet on California central coast. I'm an avid rock hound, it came with a small collection of sagenite purchased 20 plus years ago. I would really appreciate anyone taking time to give an opinion, guess, thought on its identity.
  12. I was recently presented with the fossil below as a gift that was supposedly excavated and sourced from Morocco. As I'm not an expert, for insurance purposes..looking to confirm the authenticity if this is an Spinosaurus claw or not; thanks in advance for your time and consideration:
  13. Found buried in runoff of a dry creek. Appears to have been buried for quite some time. Showing calcification? Thank you.
  14. Hi all, New here. I hope I am posting in the right section and that you guys can help me! We have spent a few days in Maryland (US) and I found this thing at the beach. I found it in an area with some fossilized shells in the sand by a muddy hill. It is pretty light and it doesn't look like the shark teeth I have seen in the past. I dont think it is a funny-shapped rock either. Is it something interesting or just an old chicken bone? Any help would be appreciated
  15. I found this on the beach in Englewood Florida one year. I have always wondered what it was. I just enjoy the hunt for sharks teeth and other fossils. It's very calming for me I've finally decided to learn about my collection. This is my most curious piece. This forum is so cool. Wish I would have looked for y'all a long time ago. I hope the pictures are done correctly and do it justice. Maybe it's just a rock but I love it.
  16. Hi all, hoping I found something with these 3 pieces but thinking prob one or more are those tricky concretions I'm not too experienced with yet. Thanks for any help in advance!!!

    Claw or tooth maybe

    My kids found this. I’m not sure if it came from my ridge in north central Kentucky, or they found it in the rock in the landscaping of my house located in the same area. We find lots of cool fossils around the property but most are relative to under water plants and animals. This one seemed to be something different. I feel very certain it’s not just a rock , lol.

    Help with ID Peace River

    Dug this out of the Peace River yesterday and almost tossed it back when I thought maybe its a claw or hoof core. Haven't found either in my prior hunts and may well be just falling for a suggestive shape. Looking on line failed to convince me either way so I am asking for help with the ID. This gave my photographer wife a chance to use her new photo light box. I think they came out pretty good. The ruler was a bit difficult to position. The specimen is apporx 3"L x 1.25"W x 1.75"H. Any input would be appreciated, Thanks.
  19. I was back on the river yesterday. Got to the launch site by 7:30 am and before I could get out of the jeep another person pulled up. They were going fishing from the bank so no competition. Loaded the kayak and headed out with the water level down even further. You can see from the following photos the various levels of the banks being uncovered as the water level drops - In this next photo look at the "water mark" on the trees on the bank to get a sense of how deep the river is during the rainy season. The next photo is out of

    ID Help Please with 2 items

    I know I have posted more than one specimen recently asking about it being a whale tooth or not. I have trouble with these small tooth ID's and apologize for the repeated questions. Tis latest one has me wondering between whale tooth or possibly an incisor of some type. Here are the photos of that one: Any in put is appreciated. The next item I think is a possible claw: Sorry for the blurriness on the last photo. I tried several times but couldn

    Help ID 2 Peace River Finds

    Visited the Peace River Wednesday and found the water depth and flow down enough to allow for an easy upriver paddle and good digging. If it wasn't for my new wetsuit I wouldn't have lasted long with the air temps in the upper 50's to low 60's! Found a nice 1.25" Meg and same size Hemi, several Mammoth teeth frags, couple of horse teeth and misc shark. The two specimens pictured here are ones I need help with on an ID. The first is what I think is a partial Peccary canine from several pictures observed on this site and others. The second appears to me to be a claw or claw core. I wasn't
  22. This is another backyard find that I am having trouble identifying and any help would be much appreciated. It resembles a claw or tooth but I am probably wrong. I live in north Texas and my property is located along the Cretaceous Duck Creek Formation: Mortoniceras and Eopachydiscus (thanks to DPS ammonite for helping me identify the formation). Would love to hear from anyone who may know what it is. Thanks in advance.
  23. .Hello, I would appreciate any information you can give me on this fossil. My father gave this to me many years ago. He was an avid fossil hunter in Florida. He hunted in the phosphate mines in Mulberry, Florida. He had quite a collection and even loaned some of his finds to the University of Florida back in the 1970's. I know nothing about fossils and don't remember if he ever told me what this is, If he did I don't remember so any help you can give me in identifying this will be most appreciated.This item is almost 2 1/2" long and 1/2" inch wide at the top.It has a letter B on it. I know he
