Fossil similar to a whale hearing bone
LB_Fossil posted a topic in Fossil IDHello everyone, I would like to know what this Fossil might be. I thought it looked a bit similar to a whale hearing bone, but not as much that I could be certain. The Fossil was found in the north of Germany, near the Baltic sea. Please let me know if you have any ideas. Thank you very much in advance. Greetings Lukas
Seeking Eastern PA sites?
ArtsyAxolotl posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsI'd really like to get more into fossil hunting and rock hounding after how much fun I had at the beach. Are there any good sites I can access around Eastern PA? Specifically up to an hour or two of driving distance from Berks County. When I search for sites in PA I usually see suggestions for Central and West PA. I'm not looking to join any groups atm for personal reasons, but I'll take suggestions for when I feel up to it (there's a group in Reading I'm keeping an eye on). Any tips would be appreciated! Thanks!

Weird stuff from nc
Wolf89 posted a topic in Fossil IDWhat are these?
hobbitfeet posted a topic in Fossil IDI found this thing at one of my usual roadcuts in eastern Missouri. I'm thinking it's part of a large trilobite segment. I glued it back together after breaking it while extracting it and prepped it the best I could.
Pearly Whites for Great Whites!
AshHendrick posted a blog entry in Eastern NC Trip ReportsI had a good weekend on the river this past Saturday and Sunday. I did some fishing and scouting for new dig spots. I have yet to find my own place where 1. no one else knows/digs that I am networked with 2. that produces decent quality and OK quantity. Saturday evening that was checked off from my fossil hunting bucket list, though. I plugged down the river in my lil 14' jon boat, saw some shells atop a bank that looked familiar to the fossil pecten in edgecomb county and made a quick dash to the shore! I had quite the struggle among the brush and trees between myself and these barely visible
Eastern NC - Bison Tooth ID Assistance
AshHendrick posted a topic in Fossil IDI found this in a gravel bed at Greens Mill Run (GMR) Yesterday afternoon. I am thinking it's Bison, but would like confirmation and also assistance with which species and possible age. It's fossilized (tinks like a rock when tapped on a metal shovel) so I want to assume it's not modern but I suppose I cannot rule out the possibility of it being colonial? the range/mix of material at GMR might make this difficult - as I found it with shark teeth and whale bone much like everything else - even horse teeth.
Xiphactinus Or Enchodus Id help - GMR NC
AshHendrick posted a topic in Fossil IDCould someone assist in determining if these two items are an Enchodus or Xiphactinus? I found the larger one this past Saturday and the smaller one a few weeks ago, same general area at GreensMill Run in Greenville NC. Found these among whale bone, great white, tiger and crow shark teeth and a couple sharks of likely mastadon tooth - obviously a nice mix from a huge time span. I assumed enchodus until a friend mentioned the Xiphactinus, which I didn't even know was an option yet, so I would also appreciate detail on how I can discern between the two in the future - characteristics etc.
Lil Skull with brains and all?!
AshHendrick posted a topic in Fossil IDThis looks like a little skull with brains and such still intact - is that wishful thinking? Found this at GreensMill Run, Greenville, NC. It's fossilized, was found in a huge array from horse tooth to shark teeth to whale bone and lots of tilly fish bones etc. Is it a skull, if so is it fish? I am assuming fish because I've not found much of anything mammal fossilized at GMR aside from horse teeth, which this obviously wouldn't be a horse.
GMR Reptile (Croc Mossasaur?) Vert ID help
AshHendrick posted a topic in Fossil IDAsking for some help if I could get an ID on the species of this recent find of mine? I've pulled from GMR (GreensMill Run Greenville NC) Rick noted it's def. Reptile but unsure 100% if it's Croc or mossasaur? Any clarification on that and if there is enough of it to go further into a species/placement/relative size of what it belonged to would be AMAZING! I found it with the usual GMR assembly of great white, tiger shark teeth, whale bone/ear bone, a mossasaur tooth and petrified wood.
GMR Vert ID Assistance
AshHendrick posted a topic in Fossil IDI was hoping I could get an ID on the species of this recent find of mine. This is def. the largest most complete vert I've pulled from GMR (GreensMill Run Greenville NC)- and let me tell you I was quite stoked even though it's a bit broken! I'm assuming it's whale but was curious if anyone could tell me what kind of whale and also verify it's a cervical vert? I found it with the usual GMR assembly of great white, tiger shark teeth, whale bone/ear bone, a mossasaur tooth and petrified wood.
ID help - Seed? Nut? Fossilized round thing from GMR
AshHendrick posted a topic in Fossil IDOK - I will start off by saying that I'm just letting you all know this is a dinosaur egg and I am only posting this here to tell you that and deny any accusations otherwise!! LOL kidding!! BUT! I found this interesting object at GMR (greensmill Run, NC) with some smaller tiger shark teeth and whale bone fragments, belemnites, tilly fish bones and a really worn rick tooth. It's rock hard, looks and feels like a nut you eat at Christmas time (I can't recall the name) but the thing split in half and inside looks like wood to me - however it's SOLID and def. something fossilized - can wood have
Shells and Shells and Shells Tar River NC
AshHendrick posted a topic in Fossil IDI have some shells I collected from the cliffs off the Tar River that I would greatly appreciate some ID assistance on. I got into books and websites and see they are Chesapecten and probably mostly Jeffersonius... but there are some features I don't know enough about to feel 100% in my research - I hope these photos will be clear enough but I can provide more if not. Any assistance/direction would be great! I have several so I will just number them and hopefully that will make replies easier. 1.
ID help - Greenville NC/GMR concretion
AshHendrick posted a topic in Fossil IDFound this guy at the wonderful GMR - it was hard to get some decent photos, it's kind of small, maybe an inch each way. I am thinking it's a concretion, initial a snail or something, but I've never found one with the outside of the swirly shell parts concreted so I'm curious if I'm on the right path or not - maybe it's an ear bone or an aliens Egg, I could be way off - so as always, any input is greatly appreciated!! Found this among small shark teeth (tiger, bull, crow) tilly fish bones and belemnites.

Eastern NC Bone ID
AshHendrick posted a topic in Fossil IDFound this in Pitt county, NC among sharks teeth (megs, tiger, Makko's), whale bone, turtle bone and some Croc teeth. Area is generally York Town formation but potentially has a little cape fear in there according to some topo maps I reviewed. I would like to know if it's possible to determine what part of the body the bone came from and also what species or at least a general idea of what sort of species, please.
