    I found this Favosites turbinatus today while fossil hunting in Louisville, Kentucky. The problem is it was mixed in with Ordovician age fossils such as Hebertella occidentalis and Platystrophia ponderosa. The area was very eroded and it could have just been jumbled up with the other fossils. Do you think this is what it is?
  2. Hi all - any ideas on this fossil I found today? Google image search is giving me photos of snake skin. Is this coral, sponge, bone, or something else? Thanks!
  3. Hi guys please help me identify this! Is it modern? I’m very new at this, should it be left at the beach? Found it in El Nido, Philippines. Do you guys know if it is uncommon/ common? It is quite heavy. many thanks

  5. It has been a while since I’ve needed this many things ID’d! So found something I’m pretty sure is a mammoth carpal or tarsal bone (Or a toe? I really don’t know), a piece of… coral, maybe? And 2 limb bones. 1) Mammoth carpal/tarsal or toe - measures 6”x3.5”x2.5” or 150mmx90mmx63mm A video to show it better is at the end. Coral: Limb 1 - measures 6.5”x1” or 160mmx27mm Limb 2 - 4.2”x1.1” or 106mmx28mm @Shellseeker @digit @Harry Pristis @Brandy Cole thanks in advance! FullSizeRender.MOV

    Please help identify: Possibly corals and sponges?

    Good evening, This is my first post on this forum and I apologize if I have not followed the appropriate etiquette. Attached are images of fossils collected at Lake Travis in Austin Texas. The rock type should be cretaceous. These were collected from and around crumbling limestone near the lake's edge. Often the sponges/spheres were found sticking out of the limestone walls, other times they were found on the ground scattered amidst large bivalves and gastropods. The same can be said for the long coral type fossils also pictured.

    Back At Greens Mill Run

    I was able to stop by Greens Mill Run in Greenville, NC once again. Only for about an hour, was able to pick up some more fossils including larger belemnites than I found previously. Less shark teeth though, but still mostly consisted of goblin shark teeth.

    Trochocyathus sp.

    From the album: Ozan Formation

    Trochocyathus sp., Travis Co. Campanian, Cretaceous Oct, 2022 A gravel find. The preservation seems a little bit off for the Ozan, but Trochocyathus is found in the Ozan of North Texas.
  13. Hello everyone, it's been a while since I've been a while since I've been out to collect fossils but yesterday I finally got to enjoy some time collecting and had some interesting finds I thought I'd share. Yesterday morning I got to meet up with @Jeffrey P who showed me his vast and beautiful collection of fossils before we went to collect two locations nearby in Eastern NY. The first location we visited was the Glenerie Limestone, a very interesting location due to the diversity of organisms found there and the unique preservation which results in many silicified shells a number of
  14. Hi everyone this is matt again takea look at these cool corals I found in the creek today here are some photos of them
  15. I have no information about the location. Is this a sponge or is it a worm colony? Modern or fossil? It has a waxy texture to it, I originally thought it was plastic. Thank you!

    Unusual find from Iowa

    Hello, This is my first post here on the forums. Please be gentle So I found this piece when I was out searching for coral (Iowa). I haven’t been able to figure out what I’m looking at. It looks to me like a cluster of fossils. I’m happy to answer any questions to help solve this mystery. Any insight would be great! Thanks!

    Possible teeth or coral?

    Found these on a beach in Scotland on the firth of Forth. Are they even fossils or just funny shaped rocks?

    Is this Devonian fossil Syringopora?

    A friend of mine found this fossil on South Point of Thunder Bay near Alpena, Michigan. The fossils here are from the Devonian Period. My best guess is that it's syringopora. Any identification help is appreciated. Thanks!

    fossil of skin, plant, or coral?

    New member here. I have aquired a few fossils over the years that I need help with. This is the first one. I found it while digging in a yard in Tuscola County, Michigan. It is 3cm high and 2 1/2cm. Two sides are 1cm thick. The other two sides are 1/2cm thick. There's a chip in it that exposes the white portion.

    Nautiloid, coral? ID help!

    Found these in a limestone formation near Bocairent, Spain. From some quick research it seems to me like these might be from the upper devonian, and some look like nautiloids? One of them looks like a coral. Perhaps crinoid also? Would love some help on IDing these if anyone has any ideas!

    NE Oklahoma Fossil Deposits

    Hey everyone, I've been trying to plan a little trip for me and my family to go on a little fossil hunt. I live in Bartlesville Oklahoma and I have several nice places I can go to find fossils all over. Mainly mississippian and Pennsylvanian. I'm looking for areas within an hour or so drive from where I live. I'm aware of the pliestocene finds in the arkansas river in tulsa area. I'd love for someone to send me maps or geologic surveys showing what areas in the topography, and other recomendations. Places I've been to worth noting: Kaw Lake spillway, Ponca City (good shells everyw
  24. I found this buried in the water in Joshua’s Creek, Oakville. This giant rock containing many coral fossils and a couple of Orthocone fossils also. I’m certain the fossils are Ordovician in age. Measurements are 30cm in length and 19cm in width. Can anyone help with identifying the Orthocones and Corals down to species pls? This is my biggest find yet, so excited to hear everyone’s opinions!

    My latest find!

    My husband and I like to go on walks along the wooded dirt trails behind our home. Last winter, we stumbled upon a particular stretch of path. It was constructed using refractory bricks smack dab in the middle of the woods. It wasn’t until recently when we decided to revisit the area. One does not simply stumble upon an old brick path in the middle of the woods. It had to have once led somewhere. We did, in fact, find an old stone well nearby. Across from the well, there’s the foundation of a house that’s nothing but rubble. I also found an A&W Root Beer can amongst the rubble. It was the
