    Rock with many fossils

    Hello, I was recently searching for arrow heads in my creek that goes through my residence in Medina county Ohio. While searching I found a small multi colored brown, black, and red rock with many holes and patterns. I picked it up and on further inspection I found the rock was actually covered in hundreds of fossils! The rock has multiple holes as well. If anyone has an idea of what this would be called or identified as much appreciated!

    Capybara tooth?

    I found this yesterday in a local creek, my first thought was capybara, any help? Thanks!
  3. Found these in a creek in south east Alabama over a year ago, I was looking at them and noticed these look a bit different from the normal sand tiger teeth, any ideas? Thanks!(sorry I see the pictures don't look great, I'm in a bit of a rush)

    Baby something? Turtle?

    Found in Moab, Utah in a creek or stream. It's hard to get pictures showing the true shape but this can't be just another rock.

    Spaghetti ball fossil

    I found this in a creek in the Ozarks in MO. Anyone know what it is? It’s about the size of the palm of my hand.
  6. Lillyt37

    What is it?

    My son found this in the creek near our home. Any idea what it is?
  7. I suspect this is a stromatolite (and not a stromatoporoid) after reading up on both, but seeing as I’ve never found either before, I wanted to put this past the experts. I do see some structures that could possibly be “pillars” but I’m just not convinced that’s what I’m looking at. Any opinions shared are very greatly appreciated, thanks!

    Finds from North Sulphur River

    Hello, everyone! I went hunting along the North Sulphur River yesterday (before today’s nasty weather), and I found some fossils and what I am almost positive is an artifact. Could someone please help with IDs, if possible? Pictures #1 and #2 are of the same bone; I found the circular striations in the 2nd picture particularly intriguing. #7 (the artifact) is broken at the base and is fairly thick at the point where it is broken.
  9. I found this item in a creek in central Texas. The creek is known for artifacts and cretaceous (austin chalk, ozan) material in the gravel bars. I don't hunt this creek much so I'm not too familiar with the finds it produces. I found this item on a gravel bar after heavy rains. I picked up this item because it has an unusual shape. I was hoping it was a tusk or horn piece but it was giving me petrified wood vibes. I've never found any tusk, horn, or petrified wood so I was open to the possibility that the item is just a suggestive piece of rock. Naturally I wrote it off as a rock a

    Hello All, My 8 year old son found these stones at Crooked Creek, Flippin, Arkansas, and he was curious to know whether it was fossil. Thank you.

    What is this?

    I found this in a creek off the peace river outside fort Meade. Would love some input from professionals because this was our(my wife and I ) very first fossil hunt inspired by Cris! IMG_2809.MOV

    Summerville/Greens Mill Run side trip

    Better late than never right?! I'm finally getting around to sharing my finds from a recent trip up the east coast for work, with a few pitstops along the way! The first two images were from an all day hunt in a creek in Summerville, with Folly Beach Fossils! The third image are my spoils from a solo half a day in GMR... Right by elm street park, because the water was way too high to go further down stream from there, and I didn't have much time! What a great time finding a couple of new species and making a few more friends along the way! I ca

    Need help identifying

    Please help me identify this fossil for my daughter.
  14. I took a fossil finding guided tour last month and now I'm pretty much hooked! If someone could please help with identifying these. Found them a couple days ago sifting in a creek in central NJ.
  15. Hi friends! My friend found this while digging in a creek in Polk county, central Florida. Our best guess is horse of some kind? Sorry there is no ruler included in the pictures, but for reference, the white bucket in the picture is a standard 5 gallon plastic bucket. He thinks it's a lower jaw piece but I'm thinking it's upper. The pointy forked protrusion has me especially curious, as I have not seen that in the pictures I've been finding. I would greatly appreciate any thoughts and guidance Thanks!
  16. It is always fun for me to read the fossil hunting trip stories . . . ~ So, I’m goin’ through the after fossil hunt pictures. I’m takin’ a long look at a fossil in this one picture. I figure it’s not a fossil, but next to it may be a real one. I thought . . . no way. I’d found a similar fossil on an earlier hunt, so I compared it to the fossil in the photo – dead match. What luck. I told self, “I’m goin’ back in and I’m gonna find it.” I rested a day, geared up the next, dropped back in day three. I had an idea where it was. Searched all o

    The Creekend Warrior Collection

    Been at it for about a year now and I try to hit the creeks at least twice/month if I can help it. The "loose" pics are either newer finds that haven't made their way into the display yet, or finds that have their own display. Most of these were rescued from the Gainesville area. Some are from the Peace River & Joshua Creek, as well as Manasota, Caspersen, Venice & Fort Clinch beaches. I was also lucky enough to discover a previously unknown spot VERY close to home, while scouting one day! Dr. Hulbert (w/ UF) confirmed it is a new spot, but was reluctant to c

    Is this petrified wood?

    I found these in Washington County Maryland (live in Central PA) while staying at an Airbnb. They were lying in and around a small creek. I've never seen anything like these before. I kept thinking they were peices of wood but was surprised to find them to be rocks when I picked them up. I also found this large peice of quartz? I have no idea so what do you all think?
  19. Over the weekend, me and my friend went to a creek in North Florida and found the Fossils below (main picture to fire wolf) the next day I went by myself to a land site near me and found most of the small teeth and the megalodon. This was our first time at this creek, and it was a huge success, with the most Miocene age fossils of any creek I have been to. We got camel, round- tailed muskrat ( thank you to those who helped identify that) horse, gator, and best of all, my first dire wolf tooth.
  20. My last fossil hunt was May 23, so it had been a while. I was hopeful that with all the time, some fossils might show, but I never think I’m gonna find em’. Monday (9/12) was shapin’ up to be a perfect day. High temp of 84 degrees, dew point and relative humidity in the 40s with a slight southern breeze . . . nice. River height less than one foot. If the weather held, I was goin in. Fossil huntin’ isn’t “fun” for me. It’s a mission. It’s remote. It’s a long hike in and a long hike out. I train for it. I hike several days a week. The training is mission critica

    North Texas Creek Hunt

    Hello all, I spent the morning in one of our local creeks here in north Texas and pulled a partial ammonite fragment, a bivalve imprint and some sort of clam… With that said, I was wondering if anyone could help identify the clam species (last three photos) Cheers!

    Mazon Creek find

    Hello! I recently went to Mazon creek and was in the process of thawing my concretions when I saw this, and was wondering if y’all could help me ID it. I’m thinking maybe a shrimp, but am not very familiar with the fauna (or flora for that matter) of the area. Thank you!

    Spongey porous thing

    The receding flood water left lots of interesting things in my go to creek, it is in cretaceous Eagle Ford but I find a little bit of everything in it from recent to Permian to Paleo and imported rocks. This one is unlike anything I've found here so not sure what to make of it, at first I thought man made because of flat side but obviously not, kinda looks like sponge but just don't know.
  24. North Sulfur River 4/27 Fossil Dark Thirty It’s a long hike in and a long hike out. The hike in takes stamina, the hike out takes endurance. For me, the fossil hunt is an all-day adventure. I’m packin’ a lunch along w/a couple gallons of water and a bunch of checklist stuff; the backpack ain’t light. On this day, I planned to go up the creek further than any time before. I don’t think about the fossils, whether I’m gonna find them or not. My main concern is safety - avoiding the slip-fall, trip-fall, snakes, wild hogs, quick-sand and creek bank mud slides. My goal is to

    Tooth id from northern NJ creek

    Found this the other day. Very long rooted but extremely worm mammal like tooth. Thought it was modern but burn test did not reveal any burnt hair smell and chipped a part of the root off to reveal what looks like mineralization. Any tips on this one? Tried to include as many angles as I could along with a tape measure to show size in length and width. thanks!
