    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!
  2. 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
  3. 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

    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.
  5. 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!
  7. Newbie notes I found the scapula during my last outing. The humerus I found many months ago. I didn't know it was humerus when I found it, but I thought it was a fossil. While I was taking a fossil inventory, these two came together again . . . after 90 million years. You can't see it in the photo, but they are connected quantumly. The "paddle bones" were dark, smooth and easy to spot. I've got a few more here. Who would have thought that putting them together could be as much fun as finding them. ~

    Weird rock or weird Fossil?

    Found in a creek in Floyd County Kentucky. Area is Pennsylvanian (according to the university of Kentucky website the area may also have a very small mix of Cretaceous, Tertiary and Quaternary). I'm wondering if this is a fossil, like an impression of a seed or something, or if this is just a weird rock. Thanks in advance.

    Is this coral or sponge?

    My neice just pulled this out of the creek at my mom's near Ashland Kentucky. I know the area to be Carboniferous. I think it's a coral, but I'm still too much of an amateur to know for sure. Any help would be appreciated by myself and my neice.

    Help with plant fossil ID

    This was found in Eastern Kentucky in the creek behind my house. Carboniferous. I think it might be astertophyllites. Is this correct?

    Is this coprolite?

    Found this in the creek behind my house in Eastern Kentucky. It's been raining (and flooding) a lot so tons of rocks are being washed out of the hills. I'm uncertain what era this could be from since I'm not exactly sure where it washed out from. The pictures I'm including show it while it was still in the rock and after I removed it. I thought it was made of metal at first, but it isn't magnetic at all, nor is it soft like lead or aluminum. After looking around online the closest thing I could find to it's shape is fish coprolite. Is this coprolite or just some stran

    Bison or Bossy ?

    Found in gravel wash of Johnson Creek in Arlington, Texas. About a mile east of Texas 360. They feel like fossils to me. And I don't notice stink over a flame. Is the size right for a bison ?

    Help identify a few fossils

    I am new to the forum but have been collecting fossils for many years and need help identifying ones that I am having trouble finding on internet please and thank you! The last one looks like a fish but maybe it’s just a rock that looks like one
  14. Thus far, 18 fossils have been ID in my first four posts. Thanks to all the professionals here at TFF for taking the time to ID so many fossils. I’ve got a bunch more. THANKS ! ~ I found what appears to be a coprolite in the same strata that I’ve found most of the other fossils. I picked this one up, tossed it back, then picked it up again and decided to keep it because I read that if you don’t recognize it or think it might be different in some way, keep it . . . might be somethin’. I read up on the Dutchess of Dookie and I’ve been to her web site and
  15. I thought the first fossil was a rib but I’ve got some other rib partials here that are small, thin and fragile, so I’m not sure. I thought the second two fossils were cervical vertebrae, but I don’t see the “peduncle on the underside surface,” so I’m not sure.

    Northern Illinois Creek

    Any ideas on these?

    Small Shark tooth

    I found this small tooth years back in one of the numerous Bone Valley creeks that produce colorful teeth. I never was positive on the ID, thinking it was likely Carcharhinus .sp, but not shaped like the common Bull or Dusky I was finding in the Peace River, similar to the one directly below. Just stumbled over the photo below, looking for well preserved fossils. I only have this single photo.. Hope it is enough....

    7-10-22 Mazon Creek ID

    @stats, @fiddlehead, @Mark Kmiecik, @deutscheben, @connorp @RCFossils and any other member. Here is a piece that I cannot put my finger on and don’t recall seeing one before. Any help would be appreciated.
  19. Newbie Notes I’ve had these fossils for a while. I’ve had a chance to research them and I have an idea of what they might be . . . but as a newbie I’m not positive. So, I defer to the professionals for the final ID. With the help of the veterans at this forum, (11) fossils were ID in my first two posts. Thanks. The following pics are group number three. The last fossil in the group you’ll notice the depositio

    Mazon Creek ID

    @RCFossils @fiddlehead @stats @Mark Kmiecik I am opening concretions right now and this one split with a nice little tap. It looks like flora, but I don’t recall this piece. If it was from a later time period I would say it was a pretty feather lol. Any help would be appreciated.

    North Sulfur River - Unknown Fossils

    Newbie Notes Long story short. September 2020 I decided to become a fossil hunter. I searched the internet and found the North Sulfur River. My first three visits I found coral fragments and small fossil wood. I was still hopeful. I then reviewed several maps of the area and decided on the road less traveled by. Went there November 2020 and found my first fossil. I followed the strata in which that fossil was found. The strata led me up a creek and that creek was laden with fossils. I hunted that creek countless times and found a bunch of nice fossils. On my last two visits

  24. Purplesandpiper

    Found in North New Jersey

    Understand this may just be a rock but nothing around in the creek bed matches what this looks like. Not sure if it’s some sort of shell concretion or what. Just wondering if anyone had any thoughts.
  25. It wraps all the way around or quite possibly just goes all of the way through? I am not sure but it is pretty! Any help you all have is amazing!
