  1. Hi everyone this is matt again here is the first fossil for 2021 it is a nice brachiopod fossil from the creek this year here is a photo
  2. I know I'm not the only one that doesn't live near good fossil deposits, which means that i'm not the only one that has to buy or trade fossils from time to time to build the collection. I thought it would be fun to have an ongoing thread to share our latest great score that we didn't personally find in nature, a thread to share your latest fossil purchase or trade. Let's see what you found at the local fossil show, online or anywhere else other than in the ground.

    Fossil teeth - Pleistocene?

    Hello all, Today I found two teeth and my girlfriend 1 tooth. Could anyone help us identifying the teeth? I thought Horse and Bison or Cow. But the teeth are quite big. And the big bone (second pic) what kind of animal is it?

    Cretaceous Bone?

    Texas, Cretaceous age. I am thinking this is a bone. Did some sanding and found blood vessel structure, can someone confirm if it is? Also, how can I tell if its dinosaur or marine reptile?
  5. I found these as a child in 1983 in Burton Bradstock,Dorset (UK). While there I happened to bump into a collector who quickly looked at them and wrote me a note on his quick guess at identifying them. Can someone take a look and let me know if his estimate was correct, any help identifying them is greatly appreciated. From the Great Oolite Series ~170Mya Ammonite, probably Dactylioceras commune Ammonite, probably Parkinsonia parkinsoni - Bivalves - The ridged, triangular one possibly belongs to the Cardia group, perh

    Just wondering if anyone can help with identifying what this is. Found in southern Alberta. Dinosaur Park formation.

    Irish River Fossil?

    I have no idea if this is even a fossil, but this looks unlike any rock I’ve ever seen and I’d really appreciate some clarification on what it could be? I’m pretty sure I found it in a river near Scariff, County Clare, Ireland.

    Is this a Fossil?

    I found this walking up my creek after the water settled from several days of heavy rain.

    Carcharodon carcharias or Otodus

    Is it from a great white? 1.5 inches and was found in Australia.

    Unusual shape of ?

    This rock stood out because of its unique shape and consistent thickness. Thoughts?

    Is this a Fossil?

  12. Hello, my girlfriend bought 2 fish fossiles. I am not sure if they are fake or not. [links removed] Do those look genuine to you? To mee they look kinda painted. best regards
  13. Today is my 50th birthday so I wanted to select my fifty favorite fossil finds to present. But....because I am obsessive, I couldn't settle on just 50. So here's 150. My favorite 150 fossil finds. And there's still more - but then it would be 250 or 555...I don't know. Anyways, enjoy. Mostly Texas, some from Utah, Florida, North Carolina, New York and England (denoted by the state initials or UK). Almost all were found by me, except about 4 which were gifted to me. I did actually narrow it down to 50...initially. But then I had to do pages for the

    Mosasaur or croc?

    Hi all, I recovered this split tooth from Big Brook park in Monmouth, NJ (late cretaceous). I've checked a couple websites that give information on Big Brook, and I can't conclude either way if it is mosasaur or croc (or similar to a croc). I included close-ups to show enamel, and held it to show the shape of the tooth towards its root. Thanks, Steve

    Big Brook, NJ Toe bone (Phalanx) ID

    Here are all my finds from big brook. WHAT A DAY ...arrowheads,toe bones, big shark teeth, misc I just need the toe bone ID
  16. My question is exactly in the title, Can you identify ray teeth without locality info? I got some as a gift a long time ago and have no information on location and age and was wondering if its possible to identify to genus or even family
  17. Hello! Long time lurker, first time poster. Found on the Peace River in central Florida. Thought it was just a coincidentally shaped rock but on further inspection it might be a tooth! Grateful to hear from the pros! More photos here: https://imgur.com/a/uJc1o0r

    Possible Walnut fossil?

  19. I was lucky enough to find a crab concretion, and not knowing what it was, opened it with a hammer. I included images below for reference of what I am talking about. * Part of the leg and claw are in imprint. What is the best approach getting them out without damage? I'm thinking manual tools? * It looks like there might be another concretion connected to that piece. Would I be able to freeze-thaw to open it now that the other fossil is exposed or could this cause damage?
  20. Hello everyone, first of all I want to say how I love this forum and how many great people are here, I couldn't find a better community. Back on topic I'm pretty much a novice when it comes to fossil preparation, I only prepped some echinoderms, bivalve and some isolated Ictitherium teeth. But after reading and reading topic on this forum I decided to begin a bigger project. I bought an oreodont skull, as you can see from the photos it seems in really good conditions and the matrix seems really soft to work on. At the same time I see that there are many fracture on the

    Bay Point Mystery

    I found this mystery fossil eroding out of the Bay Point Formation at a site near Point Loma, San Diego, California in a very densely packed shell layer. I thought it was just an interesting shell fragment when I picked it up, but realized it was something else during prep. I am absolutely clueless to what it is. Any ideas? (Sorry for the bad lighting, I couldn’t get it to be any better.) Top view Bottom View Side View
  22. Any feedback on the authenticity and quality of these 2 fossils? I'm assuming the quality of the brittle star is not top notch, as the seller didnt provide close up photos but fir the right price, I might still buy it if it is authentic. Any advice will be much appreciated as I learned a lot from my recent post of a similar nature!

    England Ammonites

    I picked up 3 ammonites last summer and was told they were from England, but with no additional information such as age or locality :(. I'm hoping someone out here might be able to help me ID them to genus or perhaps even have ideas as to where they originate. #1

    Sabre-Toothed Herring Tooth

    Vertebrate material of any kind is extremely rare at this locality. However, this is the most common vertebrate represented at Reedy Point. Found while sifting through micro matrix collected from an especially prolific, recently exposed spot that will soon be removed by bulldozers.

    Dinosaur Egg?

    I'm looking at what is being called a dinosaur egg (actually a pteradactyl egg, which I think is incorrect as it is too big). The seller says it was found in southern Minnesota. The seller says it was found 14 years ago and at the time, two people at the museum of natural history said it was a pteradactyl egg and showed where the beak is curled around the ball section in the middle. She said it split naturally. In looking at it using the information I've found on the internet and at this site; I'm wondering if it is a concretion of mud around a foreign body. I really want this to be a foss
