    Prosper, TX Cephalopods?

    Construction site in Prosper, TX. The only rocks of good size in the native site soil are these big limestone nodules. I think they are cephalopods. Thoughts? Thx, fowells

    Tooth ID help please

    Hello Group. I have had this concretion for years, unopened. It fell of a table while outside, during a move. I finished the breakout manually. If memory serves me, It came from the Lake Texoma shoreline during a drought. It looks like pics i found of shell crushers teeth. I didn't want to do anything to it without knowing anything about it. Any help in identification would be greatly appreciated. Thoughts and comments welcome. Please excuse the poor photography. I will get better pics soon. This "stone" almost went in the garden last week.
  3. I have a set of very small brachiopods from the Ozan Formation (Upper Cretaceous, Campanian) of north Texas (Fannin County, near the North Sulphur River). Some pictures have scale bars, others do not, but the largest of these shells is ~4mm (they are roughly equidimensional). They are not a rare shell in the matrix, but are small and are not abundant. I collected 57 pieces of them out of 3-4000 fossil items picked from the 12 mesh matrix fraction. I have not found a direct match in my literature and website searches so far, so I am looking for some help from our brachiopods gurus @Tidgy's
  4. I find skulls one of the most interesting pieces of fossil you can ever own. So here I'd love to see all of your fossil skulls, or parts of one. Here is my Pleistocene era skull of a Ursus arctos. An ice age brown bear. Very very uncommon find.
  5. Hi everyone, I am trying to find the following stuff someone is willing to trade. - Mosasaurus partial jaws or matrix pieces, not repaired or restored. From Morocco. - Belgian Megalodon teeth - Mastodon tooth - Quality Spinosaurus teeth, larger ones. I got a lot to offer, mostly teeth and jaws from dinosaurs and ice age relater animals.

    Amber with cracks

    Question for the Amber experts : Recently I was looking at some of my Amber (Burmite) with inclusions with my magnifying glass Quite a few of them have internal cracks. Is this likely to become a problem some time in the future ? Are the cracks likely to develop further ? And possibly ruin the piece ? Any way of preventing that ? Soaking in some sort of consolidant or oil ?

    Bizarre, just rock formation?

    To follow my previous post because this was found at the same location. I have never seen anything like this, surrounding the entire rock. I am at your mercy.

    Mysterious object on rock

    In the area Cabo de Gata in SE Spain is what is known as fossil beach because of it's feature, a fossilised dune. It is also a very popular place for fossil and mineral collectors. Walking there today and casually moving rocks and stones, I came across these two items which I will post separately. The first is an object that to the touch is solid and is very firmly attached to the rock surface. Around it appears to be some markings that do not appear anywhere else on the rock. I have been unable to locate a similar image on the web.
  10. MONTANA, Rosebud County find but within eyesight of Garfield County. This was not found in situ but recovered at the bottom of a wash along with dozens of other fragments. The smaller piece attached below is from the same section. Size of dental battery is 9"x4". Size of smaller tooth section is 3"x2".

    Eggy ID

    Hi I am hoping for an ID of this specimen I found around chalk cliffs on the north Norfolk coast UK. There are several echinoids, belemnites etc but I’ve not seen anything quite like this. My first thought was an egg but I know they’re pretty rare so I’m not too convinced, especially without any notable markings. It does however have a brittle shell like coating so it has me stumped. It’s approx 11cm. im new to this group so if I’ve missed any details please let me know. Thanks

    Texas fossil shell

    I'm visiting family in San Antonio, Texas, and have been doing a little fossil hunting as well, including in a nearby creek. Based on a local geologic map, I believe this creek mostly exposes the Edwards Group (Albian age), though there appear to be some younger (Cenomanian age) rocks from the Del Rio Formation mixed in as well, based on an Ilymatogyra arietina shell that I found a couple of days ago. This creek isn't very fossiliferous. In about 3 hours of searching, I've only found a single I. arietina and a few small shell impressions in rocks. However, today, I also found the rock below an
  13. Hello again HappyDigsters!! We found some shiny fossil spaghetti!!! In the shale formations sifting through the fines and we discovered this little strange object...maybe some fins or feathers all bunched up. Thanks again for the help

    Assorted sea shells from the UK

    I purchased some "fossil rocks" from the UK. The darker ones are from the cretaceous greensand of shanklin. The White chalk one is from the Isle of Wight. Thanks Greg
  15. Hey all, Went and tried my luck at Ramanessin Brook. Had a blast finding teeth but when it came to looking at IDs this one stumped me. It has a slight curvature and is shaped different than any enchodus tooth I have found so I think it is safe to rule that out. It reminds me of potentially Xiphactinus or Reptile (specifically plesiosaur) although the size is only 1.2 cm. Any input helps! I can always take more pics if needed. thanks!
  16. Left sand dollar is modern day I found in the Red Sea on the right is a fossil sand dollar I found embedded in limestone on dry land this is all in Saudi Arabia when I checked the last time it was underwater was in the Cretaceous I want to know as much as possible about this both sand dollars are very different in size and shape for it to adapt this much it must be millions of years old

    trying to identify another find

    The front, back, side and bottom of whatever this could be? I could not find anything to measure it with but for now hopefully the pictures alone help for the meantime. The shape of it reminds me of a bone for some reason so that's my guess as to what it could be; not quite sure of what this texture on it is though, i scraped a bit of it off fairly easily and it was dusty brown coming off of it, but not too hard when scraping the surface it barely had any resistance. I tried scraping the exposed part of my other find; the iron concretion to compare the 2 and the concretion was much more durabl

    I need assistance with identification of several items. Any thoughts. North Texas cretaceous.

    Hays County, Texas

    This may be a wild goose hunt, but my teens brought back two rocks (private land, permitted collection) near Wimberley, Texas in Hays County. I'm hoping to have some rough idea of if they are fossils and what general family they may have fallen into. I apologize for the lack of a ruler as I am not at home. The large disk shaped possible fossil is about an inch and a quarter across. The larger flat one is about an inch and a half. If anyone has recommended resources for better understanding the geology and fossil history of this area, I would be grateful for any direct
  21. Following the naming convention of others before me, I had the 1st hunting trip of the new decade (at least at Big Brook!). I was the only one in the parking lot 1/1/20. I think I've actually hunted all three holidays this season, and enjoyed the nice time in nature. Here are some of my finds. Andy
  22. I took my 8 yr old nephew to NSR, North Sulfer River today and found a few things but could not ID these. Any help would be awesome

    Dinosaurs in Greece

    Because i live in Greece i wanted to know if any fossils of large extinct animals (like dinosaurs or big mammals) have been found in Greece because when i search it i get no valid results so could you help me?
  24. Hello, so i was thinking about buying this tooth, what do you think of it? is it real? Thanks.
  25. So I recently got this Baltic amber and I found out that there is a test that includes water and salt and if the amber sinks then it's fake but if it floats, it's real and mine sank but I'm not sure could you please examine it yourself? And also the spino tooth if you can. Thanks
