    A few interesting finds

    Hello everyone, First time posting here so sorry if I mess this up or offend anyone for a newbie asking for some ID help. On a recent trip to some of our Northern New Jersey spots, I’ve come across two things I have never found before and one vertebrae that I was hoping someone could maybe point me in a direction towards. All from Holmdel area. Images 1 and 2 is possibly coprolite? Has small “shell like” crust to it in some spots. 3,4,5,6,7,8, and 9 is a small tooth in a piece of jaw bone or a claw piece possibly? Last four is the vert found. Roug

    Summerville area creek mystery fossil

    Anyone have any idea what this is? Found it in a creek just outside the town of Summerville. It’s definitely a fossil, it has an internal histology. The back part extended longer before it broke digging it out (it’s incredibly fragile). I’m thinking it might be some type of fossil coral, otherwise I have no idea, even with researching it online. I found it next to some associated pieces of a sea turtle shell in a lag deposit, lots of phosphate nodules surrounding it. Very brittle, just like the sea turtle shell, and of the same color as the turtle shell. Weird.
  5. Hi, guys! I am new to the world of fossil hunting. I have done some fossil-hunting up in New Jersey at Big Brook preserve but live in northern Alabama. Can anybody point me to areas in Alabama, Eastern Mississippi, or South Central to Southwestern Tennessee? I need areas where you don't have to have a boat to get to them. What little fossil-hunting I've done is always been in creek beds or on beaches. I know my area of Alabama doesn't have shark teeth but I've heard that you can find them in the southern part of the state. I just can't find anything online giving me areas to look. Now that foo
  6. Found this on gravel bank in creek close to DFW, in a narrow band of Alluvium smack dab in middle of Fluviatile terrace deposits. I'm not sure what to make of it, appreciate input!
  7. I collected this fossil many years ago as a kid, from a very rocky creek bed in Gorman, Texas. North Central Texas. No idea as to the geological age of the area. The "scales" have a slightly curved face that rises from the center to the sides, but not front and back. They also seem to be leaned on top of another similar to how normal scales are, all pointing the same direction. Almost looks as though the back side of the specimen has bone fragments visible? To my untrained eye, this what I assumed. From my own research, so far I assume it could be from a fish

    South Jersey Creek Find

    Hey all, I found this in a South Jersey creek gravel bed. The particular spot is in the Navesink bedrock formation, but I'm unsure of how exposed it is (if at all.) I haven't found much in the way of fossils in this particular spot except a possible burrow and a possible oyster shell. I initially thought it was an odd looking concretion, but I cleaned it up and had second thoughts. It's extremely porous (passed the tongue test), which made me think bone. It's also very heavy. Please let me know if more pictures or information would help. Thank you in advance!

    Bones in TX

    Found some bones sticking out of the creek bank in Central TX. Area has confirmed Mastodon remains. Tusks and a tooth all found within 1/4 mile of this site. Bones are 12 feet below the top of the bank. I did a little digging around today to get a feel for what it could be. It appears it could be a large pelvis bone (4-5 feet wide). I also found a small bone that appears to be from the foot/toes etc. Not really sure how I should proceed. Is there any educational value in this type of bones? Who would one contact to ask? I am sure Mastodon bones are fairly common.

    Beginner's Luck?!

    I went fossil hunting for the first time and took my 5 year old. I was SO FUN! What made it better is that we actually found a few things! I think its horn coral, possibly orthoceras. I think i found a piece of a fish on a small rock, though it's hard to see. Possibly some worm fossils. Then I found a small crinoid piece. The one with horn coral is part of a huge matrix and I want to know if anyone else sees anything. The last several pictures are all different sides of the large one. Thanks everyone for looking!

    Fossil shell id

    Hi Everyone, newbie here. I have been collecting fossils since my grandfather gave me a mastodon vertebra when I was young. I just found this fossil shell in a tiny creek on private property in a dark blue grey silty clay. There were numerous other fossil scallop shells and large barnacles etc. I've never seen one of these before. Would love an id if anyone knows what it is. Thank you in advance

    Dragonfly wing or helicopter seed

    From what I've read and pictures I've perused I'm pretty convinced that this is a helicopter seed. Anybody have some insight for me? The venation looks too . . . regular, soI'm undecided. My son found it. I hope the photo does it justice.
  13. I found this in my creek in middle Tennessee and after researching I think it is tabulata coral? Specifically favosite? It's about 3in/7.62cm long and 1.5in/3.81cm thick.

    Strange little find

    Hi all, This is a tiny little find from a creek here in Florida. It could be nothing more than a polished bit of fossilized bone with some coincidental marks, but the markings are odd to me. I haven’t found bone pieces with such symmetrical and aligned cuts like this before. I was wondering if anyone has any ideas what this may be?

    Gator/bovine bone?

    Hey guys! I'm hoping someone can help me ID this bone? I found it a little while ago in a river close to me in south Florida. I feel like it’s something obvious like a gator or a bovine but I can’t get a definite answer and it always drives me nuts when I can’t ID a bone! I’ve found one or two others similar to this in the past.

    Possible Fossils in Creek Bank; Colorado USA

    Sorry, I hope this isn't making multiple posts. I'm having trouble submitting (I was previously pasting images inline instead of using the "choose files" function). We were exploring a creek outside of Denver, Colorado USA. There was a newly exposed bank about 2.5 meters (8 ft) high. At the bottom was about 1/2 meter (2 ft) of grey clay. We pulled a large clump of clay out and dissolved it in the water. Inside were two possible fossils. We have no idea what we're looking at and have zero experience identifying fossils. Any help is appreciated. Item #1: This looks like a bone, we're
  17. Not sure if it matters where it came from but just in case, was in a mix of QAL and Eagle Ford. Thought it was bone when I picked it up but it felt funny like plastic and weighed nothing. Figured it would float but didn't, thought surely it would melt with flame but didn't, and no smell. I've shown it with piece of worn bone for comparison, but I'm still perplexed. What else could it be? Last picture is the bone.

    Sperm Whale Tooth

    Hi guys, I know this isn’t necessarily an identification post as I’m quite sure this tooth belonged to a sperm whale. However, I have done a lot of research on other areas of Florida paleontology yet I don’t know much about ancient sperm whales or their teeth at all. I’m having trouble finding more info. I was wondering if this tooth (found in a creek close to where I live on the gulf coast of Florida) is particularly large for a sperm whale, or is this the standard size? Are they rare or difficult to find? This tooth was lying underneath the top layer of gravel alongside half of a 5 inch

    Mississippi creek jaw

    Found in a NE Mississippi creek. I’m usually in Montana, so have no clue what this could be. Seems a bit older than modern, but obviously not crazy old. Thoughts?

    Turtle coprolite?

    This is from mix of Eagle Ford and Alluvium, had it for awhile but just ran across pictures of turtle coprolite and thought it fit, right size, shape and colors I've seen. Also weighs light. Knowing my luck it's geological but that's ok it's very interesting. I snuck in another one I suspect is coprolite

    Mystery Femur

    Found this in a creek off of peace river, way way out. It’s not fossilized but it is old for sure. It appears to be a femur of some sort, but I can’t figure out what it belongs to? It is 9 inches long.

    Fossilized raindrops?

    This dolomite stone was discovered near Chasm Creek, central Arizona. It appears to have the fossilized impressions of raindrops splashing into a fine muddy surface. The stone seems to be dolomitic, as HCl causes a low fizz, unlike typical limestone's more energetic fizzing. Most of the "splashes" have the central "rebound" splash seen in my high-speed imagery of water droplets. That central rebound appears to have been broken off over time. Does my assumption that this is a somehow frozen-in-time rain shower make sense?
  23. Hi all, I found this fossil in a creek near St. Louis. Any ideas?

    What is this?

    I found this in a creek in Apopka Florida any one know if this is a fossil or modern it’s pretty heavy for its size does anyone know what it is?
  25. Found in creek in Silex, MO. I find many formations like this around the area. Fossil or geological? Each hole is about 2cm in diameter.
