  1. Hello everybody! Found that near kids sandbox in Prague, Czech Republic, in the city center. Sand and rocks from there are probably brought from some other area. But in this park, only few hundred meters from there some Trilobite fossils can be found. It was just laying on the ground. I think it can be a rock, but its very tooth looking rock. I am no expert in those things. It seems like there is a root. It's exactly 2cm from top to bottom. I can't find any shark tooth looking like that. Other animal? I tried my best in making those photos. But i

    Any ideas?

    Hi all, total fossil numbskull here. I found this on my local beach here on Anglesey , Wales, UK this morning and thought it looked like fossil worms of some sort. Your thoughts would be most welcome! Thanks Huw

    Help with ID

    Hello. My family found this on the beach in southern Oregon. We’re wondering what this fossil might be? It has texture to it that you can feel. And it’s pretty, my daughter described it as being lacy, almost like crochet stitches.
  4. Hi everyone! Got a nice little mystery bone from the Kem Kem here. I think it's a Coracoid bone but I'm not sure from what. I'm leaning Crocodyliform only because that seems to be the most common thing for these random mystery bones but I don't know for sure so I figured I'd seek a second opinion in case it might be something else like a fish bone. It measures 7 cm (2.76 inches). Any feedback is appreciated as always!

    Pterosaur claws or fish teeth?

    Hi everyone, Just got these, I think I see blood groves but you never know. So I'm here for a second opinion. Morocco, Cretaceous, Kem Kem beds Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

    central texas tooth

    Here's a tooth that I found in a nice slab that had plenty of other easy to ID species - I'm having a hard time with this one though. I'm afraid to prep it further for now - the matrix is very hard, making my hand picks barely usable, while the tooth itself is very delicate. I see no carinae, but the tooth seems a bit long for a mosasaur. I also see no strong striations in the enamel that would indicate pliosaur. My best guess at the moment is Xiphactinus? What do ya'll think? Found in the Eagle Ford formation in central texas. I suspect on the Bouldin Flags member

    Fish Tooth found in Lake?

    Hello, I found this tooth or rock in the bank of a lake where I was collecting and sifting in a concentrated gravel spot. 1 oyster, 1 coral piece, and 2 snails are the only fossils I found. After searching a little more, I found this rock which I'm assuming is a tooth. The gravel where I found this possible tooth is also in the Eagle Ford of the Cretaceous of Texas. I'm thinking either shark or fish tooth. It's slightly curved and there isn't any enamel or serrations (that I can see), so I might be wrong. Can anyone identify the species of animal the tooth may have belonged to? Or if

    Identify a fossil

    Hi, I inherited some fossils from my father, and I am trying to identify them. Can someone tell me what kind of fossil is in the attached photo? Also, during shipping, the crack in the plate occurred. Does that affect the value of the overal plate significantly? Thanks in advance for assistance! SVG

    Mystery Florida Fossil. Fish?

    I know the pics aren't great, but I'm hoping someone can tell me what this is. It is from Florida. It is pretty tiny, but I thought maybe the design of it could help someone identify it.

    Unidentified online fossil

    Got this off online, because I thought it was pretty cool looking. Seller didn't know what it was and described it as a reptile. I don't think it's an alligator. I am fairly certain it is some sort of fish, and that the bottom of the fish is exposed. There was no locale given, I only know it shipped from Minnesota.

    Vertebrae ID needed

    Hello all i am posting new photos (albeit not too good) of this 1/2 inch vertebrae which I assumed was fish but the hollow/open centrum is unlike what I’ve found before and online search didn’t help. Any help would be appreciated thank you

    Vert ID fish? Not shark

    Gods afternoon all this little baby is 1/2 inch long apologies for a lousy iPhone 5 and a lousy photographer I’m usually wrong but I’ll say that it doesn’t look like the shark or fish vertebrae I’ve found. What strikes me is the open centrum. About the only thing I know for sure is that it’s not a concretion. In order the photos back, top, bottom, front and side

    Unknown tooth from NJ

    Hi, I found this tooth in the Navesink Formation, and, I was wondering what it is, it is exactly one inch long.

    ID Help Jaw fragment

    Found the below specimen in the Peace River recently. I have spent several hours looking at images of small fossil jaws, fossil fish jaws, etc. I haven't found anything that I could see as a match. I am now hoping someone may recognize this. The holes appear to have an interior channel running in between inside of the specimen. Lighting was a problem as I was taking the photos and these are the best I could do for now. Hope they are sufficient. Any input is appreciated, thanks.

    Jaw or Spine

    I’d would love some help identifying what this is - I believe it’s a modern fish jaw of some kind but wouldn’t mind being persuaded that it’s a fossil! (Tooth Tap Test was inconclusive- sometimes glass, sometimes plastic) Since it’s likely modern, does anyone know what kind? 4 inches long exactly, about 1/4 inch at the widest point. Smooth on one flat side, a deep groove on the other. Wickedly sharp curvy teeth are part of the bone. Found at Purse on Sunday. -Our Fossil Group has conflicting ideas on this piece; catfish spine, gar jaw, snake mandible, bird spine... -It seems m
  16. Or something else? I know that I've seen this kind of tooth before, but for the life of me I just don't seem to be able to remember where. I found it at my shark tooth spot in the Miocene Burdigalian. It measures 16mm. from the bottom of the root to the tip.
  17. Please tell me those are fish!!! (One of my dream find fossils)Found this near downtown Lockhart believe it or not, I’m a little protective over the spot cuz I COULD get super specific on this one and it’s not very off the beaten path ...lol

    What is this?

    Can anyone ID? It has the lines on the side that look like they could be from a fin or plant maybe, idk, and there's the column.

    Alabama fossil ID

    Hello! I'm new to the forum and have a fossil I need some help with. I am very familiar with crinoids, as I grew up in north-central Alabama and they're everywhere. However, I'm not sure what this one is. It was found in Blount County, AL in a creek. Here are photos of the entire piece with two areas circled, and a couple of closer-ups. The bit in the upper left of the first photo looks like plant material to me, but I'm not sure about the rest. I'm happy to provide more photos or info if it would help. Thanks for your help!

    Need id if possible

    Found this skull bone piece in a sand dune by the beach, I think it might be some sort of fish or hopefully a reptile. Found in southern Africa.

    Small fossil paint brush

    I came across this little oddity while searching through some matrix for some micro specimens. As per the tags it is from the cretaceous and the environment is marine. I assume from the texture it is fish but what? It appears to be complete except for the rest of the animal it was attached to. Views are top bottom and side of the same piece. At 3 mm long it is quite small. At first sight I thought tooth but if that the root is very flat and square. Mike
  23. I was sent a chunk of material from the aust bone bed of the U.K. by @JohnBrewer (thank you very much!) to practice some prep on, mostly for the large bone and coprolites. I was also told to soak the material in vinegar to get all the little microfossils. I've gotten started by breaking off some chunks (I haven't gotten the acetone for my consolidant yet so I'm not touching the bone just yet) and soaking them in concentrated vinegar (30% acetic acid I believe, strong stuff). After an initial soak I saw this little guy poking out the surface. I saw the opportunity to prep and got right to work

    Cretaceous Tooth ID

    Found this 1 5/16" tooth in a creek with Late Cretaceous fossils. I think it is enchodus. Is that correct?
  25. My son and I went with the Dallas Paleontology Society to Post Oak Creek Saturday looking for sharks teeth and whatever else. I had my 10X loupe with me. A few times I just picked up a hand full of gravel and just looked at it with the loupe. 1 time I did that, I noticed this in it. Everyone who looked agreed it was a vertebrae, but what kind is it? a few of us are thinking fish, but I'm not sure. So, ant identification on type of animal and age (being from Post Oak Creek, however, found in the gravel bar) would be appreciated. The scale is millimeters. Thanks
