curious as to Fossil Identify and Age
dbrhol posted a topic in Fossil IDHi there I'm just new to the Fossil Forum. I found this large fossil near the Abitibi River in Ontario. Thinking a sea sponge or Coral. It's large - 1.5 ft x 1 ft w x 8 inches in depth. Wondering if anyone could help with the ID or age. Thanks DB
ChrisEverett18 posted a topic in General Fossil DiscussionI found my dog chewing on this in our backyard after he had been digging. I'm curious as to what it may be, and whether or not I should let him keep it! It is roughly 7 centimeters wide at the base and 13 centimeters long. Found in Fort Worth, Texas. Any information is appreciated! Thanks!

Is this really fossil?
TinaMarieEast posted a topic in Fossil IDCame across this some time back out in the washes of Imperial Valley. Lots of small shells , oysters of various sizes out there's and an occasional coral piece, found by others. How old is this? Is it really a fossil? Seems like a strange kind of thing to just discard out there. I have found fossilized tube worm holes, even parts of calcified shells still inside. So, opinions? Thank you.

I don't have a Clue
TinaMarieEast posted a topic in Fossil IDI have found a few examples like this. Mostly in road cuts located near the military range. Different kinds of minerals have formed the same designs. This cobble is the largest. I am relatively sure that it came to Yuma from elsewhere in the ancient Colorado Rivers wanderings. Ideas??
Rapp beach trip
Rowboater posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsWent out after the snow here, not expecting much. Found a dozen or so small teeth (one small mako?), a flat (porpoise?) partially hollow tooth, some coral on a scallop, skate teeth and a nice piece of stinger, and-- finally-- a bunch of shrimp coprolite burrows (had not seen any in a longtime, but the storm deposited several; posted photo on that thread). Bunch of "whale' bone" chunks. A fun day.

Lake Huron Fossile Hash
CarrieMay123 posted a topic in Fossil IDMy family and I found 2 ENORMOUS slabs of what I think is Fossile Hash. Though the stones are large I think they washed up recently. I took tons of pictures, but they’re not that great! I wasn’t sure what I was looking at, but it was easy to make out a few fossils knstantly. The more I look the more I see! It took me 3 hours on the internet to find the term Fossile Hash, I have almost 0 knowledge to share with my kids on this! I will try to upload a few pictures! Would this even be considered Fossil Hash? Are any of the fossils identifiable from the pictures? I know you can’t take
Fossil beach, blocks of shells,
eccodave1 posted a topic in Fossil IDHello I am a rookie again at 67yo. I have a just posted the clam shell seen here on another post and am wondering about these tubular corral looking runs I have found on the beach along with many other types of fossils. Any ideas ?? The tube in jpg.023 looks like a glassy center, very shiny. I tried to detect an odor but the river water I think masks any odor. These tubes range 3' and more, running in curves with off shoots and branches reminding me of corral. When I found these I was totally not prepared to collect or carry much so this is a broken off piece. Along wit
JenRho posted a topic in Fossil IDHi everyone. I'm new to the forum. I am originally from South Texas, but currently live in Central Texas. I discovered the "rock" in this post, while dove hunting on my uncle's ranch in Southwestern Bexar County (south of San Antonio), almost twenty years ago. The area where my uncle's ranch is located, consists primarily of red clay, sand stone and some stones that look iron. When I first picked this up, I thought it was a fossilized turtle shell, as did my family. Over the years, I noticed it was oxidizing and I wondered if it was some sort of iron meteorite.
