  1. My wife and I went out for our third fossil hunting expedition and landed on what I would consider to be our first big find. We went camping up near Ram Falls, in Alberta Canada. I previously read on this handy website that others had found ammonites in the area, specifically scaphite depressus, an low and behold, we found one too! I can't described how pumped I was to hold that thing in my hand. What a great feeling. Anyway, we also found a fair amount of other coral looking thingys, and I would really appreciate some help IDing them. Here they are: I am thinking that these thre
  2. Hi everyone this is Matthew again. Can anyone tell me what kind of coral/sponge this could be ? I found it in the creek today and I have no clue what it is. Here are a few photos:
  3. Hi all! Found in Lansing, NY near Cayuga lake in a drainage wash out but I do not recognize it as a native stone or coming from the formations that I've seen over the past 6 months. I've been on the fence about posting this as I wasn't sure it was a fossil but after getting some decent macro photos, I'm seeing some curious details and I am not sure if this could be a coral or bryozoan colony of some sort or another amazing example of geological wonders. We had major flooding last year, creeks and streams broke their banks, and I found this stuck in a pile of tree trunks 3 feet above the normal
  4. Found near Cayuga Lake on the bank of a tributary. The raised spherical type shapes measure 3 - 4 mm in diameter and can be seen on several sides of the stone. I'm not sure what the matrix is but think it's a type of shale. There are so many types of shale in my area and I have yet to learn how to discern between them. This stone is very hard, dark grey (not quite black) and cannot be fragmented/chipped easily like others I find that can be crumbled in my bare hands. Could this be a coral? My field guide for this area doesn't show any corals that resemble this. I love this one!

    Cretaceous life?

    Most of what I find on the Brazos River in southeast Texas is mio-pleistocene, and fresh water based. But at times older cretaceous stuff washes down. Since it's rare here, I'm completely clueless as to differences between oysters, corals, rudists and things but would like to learn more. I found this a while back and it seems to have very distinct patterns on the outside and inside. From searches, I thought maybe a broken piece of rudist, but I wouldn't know one if it bit me. It just doesn't look like normal rock to me. Any guidance would be appreciated.

    This is another from my backyard treasure chest!

    I love my backyard, I don' love being clueless as to where the previous owners purchased the rocks from. I am fairly positive that they are a mixture of at least two different styles, one of which I know is a river or lake mixture. (I was able to get one person on another forum to tell me they look like possibly Michigan Lakes stones) What I did not know, is that coral and sponge could be found in fresh water sources, any body an expert in this sector? Or if you have any opinions on the Lake Michigan suggestion, please let me know what you think. When I am more familiar with the different for
  7. I have found this whilst collecting fossils at Cap Blanc Nez. It was embedded in the chalk. Usually you'll find sea creatures there from the cretaceous. It has some structures inside, some small pieces have broken of and reveal inside porous tissue https://www.paleontica.org/locations/fossil/52 82716440_WhatsAppVideo2022-01-25at21_49_31.mp4

    Miami Beach Fossil ID

    Hello and Happy New Year from Miami! I found an interesting rock on the beach a little while back and I can't seem to determine what it is. Since it was found at Miami Beach, it should be Pleistocene Miami Limestone. The specimen is about 3 inches in length. It looks quite similar to an image I found online of a seal humerus: Thank you :)

    Can anyone identify this fossil?

    Hi! I was out looking around the local area and happen across this fossil. It's anyone able to identify what exactly it is I found? Thanks in advance.

    Lake Michigan Fossil

    At first glance, on the beach, I thought this was a pink Petoskey stone / Hexagonaria, but there are no visible bands or gills. Any thoughts?

    Coral Identification please?

    Found these in a central Florida spring, Seminole/Orange County area. Pretty sure they are coral, but haven’t been able to pinpoint the species.

    More fossil help

    Unknown origin on Fern like specimen. Found the other 2 in Central Iowa US.
  14. Hey guys! I'm new to the forum and have something neat to share that came from Hockley Valley Ontario. I found a descent sized piece of what I believe is fossiliferous limestone. This was in a clearing on my property near Hockley Village! I had posted it on mindat.org which some kind people had directed me here to help further identify the fossils in it and maybe learn more about this specimen. We deduced that it was likely limestone but with some hard silica in it as it was able to mark glass. The rocks dimensions are 17 × 12.5 × 4.3cm and it weighs roughly a pound (I don't have a precise sca
  15. Found on Manitoulin Island. I believe at Kagawong... but unfortunately, it's been a while and I didn't make any notes at the time.
  16. Not positive about this one. Found today north of Manitoulin, low to middle Bobcaygeon Fm. Despite very common ostracods, this is not a conspicuous cluster of them, methinks. Echinoderm? About 6 cm top to bottom.
  17. Hello! So I found these three fossils and was curious to know about them... one i think is to be a bryozoan branch the tooth i believe to be a cow tooth not sure how old it may be and the last one is a type of small brachiopod its super tiny but again I don't know much about fossils yet but I am ready to learn more ! So if any one knows anything about these fossils that'd be a great help! First 6 pictures are from the riverbed and the last two are from the beach in Lübeck,Germany Thanks!

    nebulous fossil

    Strange fossil. Found in wash south of Santa Fe, NM. P-wood in area. It is a heavy crystal rock with many swirls and whirls. Might be a coral. But just can't tell. An enigma---

    petrified coral?

    Found at 1000 ft elevation in the coastal foothills of Ventura County, (Southern) California (34.305441, -119.195121). I only brought home and cleaned up 3 small pieces, but they appear to have broken off the larger piece shown (outdoor photo). I stumbled upon this poking up out of the surface soil. I know nothing about fossils but I'm very cuious and am grateful for any help identifying. Thank you.
  20. I found these two stones on a beach on the southern coast of England, and they seem to have fossils embedded in them. I'm not sure what they could be, can someone here help me identify them?
  21. Doggeek

    Is this coral?

    I found this while I was out running the other day - it was near the top of a mountain in Southwest Virginia. Is this a coral fossil? Could the thing on the end be a brachipod fossil? Sorry my measuring tape only had inches, but I figured it was better than nothing!

    ID help

    Found in western Oklahoma, was on a well site so could have come from a quarry in northwest Oklahoma. It is very very light. Any identification help would be greatly appreciated.
