  1. I am thinking of buying a fish fossil for my collection. These two look similar to me and they are all 13 cm. Just want to get your opinion, which one do you think is better? Thanks!! First one: Second one:

    Don't have a clue..

    Found in Little Missouri River, AR...don't have a clue what it is
  4. Location: Missouri Formation: Muncie Creek Shale Time Period: Pennsylvanian I have found many things in the phosphatic nodules from the Muncie Creek Shale formation ranging from scales, bones, coprolites and in some cases braincases or skull material however I have found very little of braincases and I was curious if someone could identify what they either belong to or in case of specimen #1 if it is indeed a braincase I was also wondering if someone could possibly link me to some material relating to Pennsylvanian period braincases as It
  5. 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

    Devonian Fish Scales New York?

    I found this odd piece in a grey shale layer in a place with devonian age matrix and fossils from new york with various layers from flakier layers compact with fossils to harder layers like this gray shale layer that this one thats not as compact with fossils as the other ones. I am unaware of devonian fish remains from new york and I usually do not notice odd minerals in the grey shale layer so this this piece baffles me, these small shiny "scales" sort of reminds me of how the devonian fish fossils of the old red sandstone of the uk kinda preserve but other than that I have no idea what else
  7. Here is some of my first 6 months of fossil collection ! ( some still in transit oversea ...) First of all I really enjoy spending time in this forum and I feel very lucky to be member of this forum ! some of my collection was ID by you guys Soooo...LET get started ! KEM KEM the mystery - My First Dinosaur fossil .... Abelisauridae tooth ! MY BEST theropod tooth in my collection ! My Mystery vertebra from Kem kem ... possible Theropod vertebra Sauropod tooth << Rebbachisaurus tooth from kem kem
  8. All, I have got a strange looking osteostracan fish from Stjordalen Fm, Spitzbergen. It is Emsian. It is not identified but generally belongs to the elongated type of osteostarcan fish from that locality. As you can see it shows that a part of the exterior headshield layer is missing showing probably a viscelar/internal structures. Maybe it is an effect of predation or just a mechanical damage during formation of the fossil. Nevertheless, it is interesting. Pictures are not of the best quality but some internal structures seem to be visible. It is a strange looking one. Any co
  9. Hi everyone! I've been looking at this fossil and have been interested in acquiring it, but I wanted to post some photos and see what you think. Is it real of fake? Thanks for your time!
  10. Receiving this gorgeous but mysterious specimen is from Upper Pennsylvanian limestone dated around 290-300 million years ago from somewhere around Kansas City. Looks like a tooth to me and my best guess would be orodus? But I have little experience with Pennsylvanian shark teeth in general and especially from this area, also cannot find a comparison elsewhere online. Any help will be appreciated.
  11. I recently came across this very old paper (1899) that discusses an unconformity in the Silurian limestone of Illinois, in which a small lens of Devonian rock was found. The matrix was particularly packed with a variety of fish teeth, including two new species. I, along with the author, found this quite interesting as the nearest Devonian outcrop is 80 miles away in Milwaukee – the Devonian is just not well represented at all in Illinois. In fact, this is the first time I've heard of Devonian fossils coming from Illinois, although the paper indicates that there were outcrops in Illinois to the

    Green River Fish Amia Head???

    Hello everyone, I'm looking for a second opinion on this piece, a fish head from the green river fauna, while I believe it maybe Amia due to comparisons I'm not to confident, any help/guidance is and will be appreciated.
  13. Bought a fossil online. Wanted to know if it is real or not. I'm a new member, so ignore my lack of knowledge on these things.

    fossil found

    I found this fossil on my property at top of Laurelas Grade in Hidden Hills off Carmel Valley Rd. state of Calif. It appears to be some kind of fish. Can anyone give any more information on what this could be? Entire size of rock is approx 6" wide. I have found lots of mollusk type fossils but never a fish. thanks kathleen

    Fish 10.JPG

    From the album: 1925 Body & Trace Fossil Collection - Ocean

    These three fish specimens are a little harder to see in the pictures but if you tilt the fossils just right you can see the outlines much better. These were only labeled "fish" so I have not researched the species of fish found thus far in Argentina. Out of context you would really have to look hard to see the fossils. Please let me know if I should shoot these a bit differently?
