  1. Well, I’m finally getting to dig into my truckload of fossils from my Wyoming trip with @RJB so it’s my turn to open up a prep thread. I spent a couple hours today poking around to find the perfect fish to start with. The 18” layer never disappoints. This good sized Diplomystus has 2 Knightia on top of it. I’m going to try to save both but I’m concerned that the right hand one is covering most of the Diplo’s skull. If that’s the case, the little guy will have to go! This is after about 90 minutes of scribe work.
  2. I am collecting Lebanese fish fossils, but I don’t know what species it is. Does anyone know?

    Help identify

    Any ideas on what kind of fish this is? Where it's from or any information would be appreciated

    Triassic Fish Bone/Tooth?

    This fossil is from Guanling of Guizhou, China, of Triassic formation. It is 18cm in length (curve). Is it a fish bone/tooth?

    Some shark teeth

    Hello, This is my first post here, and although the material is not of much value, I wanted to know who they belonged to. I have these teeth that I bought a long time ago, I bought them in a museum and I don't know where they come from or how old they are. Any suggestion? 1.- 2.- 3.-

    Purchased Fish

    A local rocks, minerals, and fossils store recently went under some renovations and increased in size by quite a lot. However, according to the employees, lots of the fossil identification/location information was somehow lost during the remodeling, and so they were selling off many of their fossils for cheap to clear room for new inventory. Plus there was a good sale on fossils going on. As the title states, I purchased this fish because I thought it looked interesting, but I was wondering if anyone here had any idea of what it might be. Secondly, are there any guides f

    Somewhat fishy

    Ahoi, I just finished a model of Dunkleosteus the lazy way, because I don´t have that much time these days. Lazy way means: Skull is a bought model from kaiyodo dinotales, postcranial is a skeletal drawing by Scott Hartmann I modified slightly and printed on some transparent foil. Like the outcome. It is quite small though, only 15 cm, representing a meager 3m in my chosen scale. can anyone tell what the other two are? both recent species, one handmade after a photograph, the other 3d printed from ct data. As I don´t know if I can add tags after posting
  8. I finally broke through today, and made some of my proudest finds ever... multiple times. I have some questions on a few ID's. When I compared these Ptychodus to the Ptychodus ID guide, they kind of reminded me of anonymus and mammilaris. I'm excited because everywhere else I've only ever found mortoni before. I did not find any mortoni here. In the same slab as a ptychodus, there's also a small tooth that's perhaps suggestive of Mosasaur - however, fish teeth from those like pachyrhizodus look deceptively mosasaurian to my inexperienced eye. Furthermore, it's small size could

    Probably Fish?

    I believe this is fish but just wanted to double check
  10. On a couple of recent trips to the Whitby coast my daughter and I collected quite a few chunks of a large septarian nodule (or perhaps more than one nodule, though everything was collected in a small area) containing bones. Most of the pieces we found just contain ribs, but one piece contains a couple of larger bones. I’ve had a go at prepping the two best bits, is anyone able to suggest what the bones might have belonged to? Thanks for looking FullSizeRender.mov

    Rodent or Fish?

    Hello everyone. This little guy was found in some landscape rocks around a pool in Cocoa Beach Florida on September 1, 2021. Any ideas or information would be appreciated. I can take more/better pictures if needed. My kids and I are just getting into rock hounding and have good luck searching rock islands in parking lots and around buildings. We have found a lot of nice horn corals and Petoskey stones as well as a few cool agates and even a geode. So naturally we searched the pool surround while we were on vacation. This little guy was in with a mix of marble and sea shells.

    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

    Sawfish tooth

    From the album: Delaware Fossils

    Cretaceous sawfish tooth from the C and D Canal, Delaware
  14. Hi everyone. It has been a while since I have made a post. Between some health issues and all the RAIN we have had here in NC this summer, the trips have been few. Not to mention all of the quarries still being closed due to covid. Recently I was granted permission to search a small, private agricultural limestone marl quarry. It is Eocene Castle Hayne Formation, Comfort Member. Now before anyone asks, no I will not say where or nor will I be bringing anyone to it. It is very small and my permission is very tentative. I have to get permission each time I go. It is a smorgasbor
  15. Hey all, Made two trips to Ramanessin Brook that I have yet to share. The first trip provided much of the same stuff I had already had but did yield me an amazing sawfish rostral tooth. The most recent trip (8/17/21) is where the majority of what I wanted to share was found. Sawfish rostral tooth Pycnodont Fish Angel Shark Hybodus Shark Bone Material Goblin Shark Mosasaur? Mosasaur

    Eocoelopoma fish skull

    From the album: Some of my best Sheppey fossils

    The newest addition to my fish family. This is another beautiful example of the fish Eocoelopoma.
  17. Got to work on these guys because some of these creatures were my inspiration of what they would have looked like in color and others are at an art show. Wonder what animals will you like to see when its unleashed before your very eyes?
  18. Hello everyone. I'm a begginer with the fossils. I bought some fossils and I want to know if the pieces are genuine. Also I want to know more info about the species and place where we can find them. I hope you can help me, because I have 0 experience with the topic and I'm really interested to learn.

    Fish from Brazil - Species?

    Hi gang, I attended the east coast mineral and fossil show this weekend and picked up a neat fish from Brazil for my collection. The dealer couldn’t remember the ID. It doesn’t appear to be Vinctifer Comptoni which is really the only fish I’m familiar with from that region. Can anyone help me with an ID? Thanks!

    Kemmerer WY trip 2021

    Hi everyone, My third trip to Kemmerer, Wyoming is in one week. I’m going to be digging in the Green River information. Last trip, I came home with a whole Mioplosus labracoides. This time, we have two friends from Japan digging with us. My goal for this trip is to find ANY decent fossil to show my Japanese friends who are digging with us. I don’t care what we find, as long as we all have fun. The only problem is, their suitcases are full. They can’t bring fossils back to Japan with them because they don’t have room in their suitcases. As a resul

    Fish scale fossils in flint.

    While flint knapping, I found some fish scales inside the flint. The flint was a nodule inside a miocene conglomerate in northern Israel. The flint is most likely to be Eocene flint that rolled its way from a distance. Specimen A is one centimeter long, B is 5 mm and specimen C is aprox 2 mm. I hope some of you can help me identify the fish species or families. Thank you!
  22. I've had this for quite some time & I've always just told people it was a fish because you can see what looks like a dorsal fin on top and a tail fin or what's left of it and even texture of the scales. Unless mother nature is getting really good at making pseudo fossils lol I didn't know who to ask since the person I used to turn to when I found something hasn't responded to me in quite some time. (which has actually got me worried) Some of you might have heard of him, a paleontologist named Guy Darrough who knew my mom & dad before I was ever born. So I came across this site & I

    Fish scale from Ras al Khaimah?

    Hello, I found this fossil a while ago on a trip to Ras al Khaimah (an Emirate/state in the United Arab Emirates). It looks a bit worn, but it is still interesting. It has some strange patterns on it, and I am wondering if it could be a fish scale. I think the time period it's from is Cretaceous, but I am not very sure.
  24. I have been trying to find a few oz. of vican. I can't find it anywhere, is there something else I can use and where to find it? Thanks Dave

    Fossil Fish Identification Help

    Hello everyone! My friend found this fish in her collection and we have no clue what kind of fish it is. Is there any fish experts in this forum that can help us with the identification? I,m afraid we cannot provide any accurate information on the age and procedence. Many thanks in advance! Kind regards, Andrés
