  1. Hey pals! I came across this fossil at an antique store and was wondering if it is real or fake. And if it is in fact, real, what species does this fossil belong to? would be great if someone could help me out, thank you!!
  2. Hi everyone, my family has a new found interest in fossils. Today was our first adventure toSuzie Gilmore Beach Newcastle. We have found some interesting fossils. Would love any help with scientific names, rock formation, fossil type, dates etc to fuel my kids knowledge. If I've taken a photo of nothing substantial please forgive and educate us! Thanks

    Interesting Florissant Fossil

    Hello, Another Unidentified Florissant Object, some sort of attachment on a monocot/reed/stick. Maybe the attachment is an insect egg, or a larva, or just a seed of some kind. You can definitely see they are connected. Maybe you guys can help figure this one out, if it's unidentifiable I totally understand. @piranha @Top Trilo @Rockwood @Tetradium @LabRatKing, y'all have helped me in previous topics. Thanks!

    Polypterid/Bawitius jaw from Kem Kem?

    Hi, I have a friend in Morocco who is helping me get my hands on some Bawitius or other Polypterid material from the Kem Kem Beds as it is one of my top bucket list fossils. Today he send me this picture what he might believe could be a match for my search. Now I am not a fish expert and there isn't a whole lot of Bawitius material available to compare it to. So I was hoping of some of the Kem Kem or fish experts might chime in and shed some light on the piece. @LordTrilobite @gigantoraptor @Haravex VID-20210902-WA0006.mp4

    Young fossil hunter

    Hi, I have a 6 year old son who is obsessed with finding stuff on the beach. (In Essex) The other day he brought something over to me and I’m convinced he found a fossil of some kind. He now wants to know what it might be, and so do I! Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    More fossils I found 2 days ago

    Hi, If anyone knows if these are anything I appreciate it. We went to Ruck's pit FL for calcite crystal clams and dug these too... I hope the pics are good, I forgot use a different color background.

    Northwest La Possible fossils

    okay, so here's a total shot in the dark. but can these possibly be fossils? I found them in the dirt while I was digging my plant beds totally piqued my interest and I've been collecting every since. Any information would be appreciated thank you. p. s. I have a few more but didn't wanna overwhelm with pictures.
  10. Found this in a customer's rock garden. They had a couple truckloads of the most random assortment of rock sizes, shapes and colors I've ever seen. I apologize that there are no clues based on it's location. All the rocks in my 'hello from Oklahoma' intro were all found in the same place. They rock itself is approx. 2¼ in. long x 1¾ in. wide x ½ in. tall. The marking isn't an indentation but the 'medium' -for lack of a better description- seems organic. If it is human-made, I'd be curious to know how. The markings are so precise as to be human-made but also seem completely natural. I've not at

    Vertebral Column

    I am going through some items that have been in my family for a few years--and I have no idea what this partial vertebral column is from. I also don't know where it was found. Any ideas on this? It's 34 cm in length and 10 cm across. Each vertebrae is approximately 7.6 x 10 cm Thanks!

    Fossil ID

    Looking to ID this fossil from Mazon Creek. I was wondering it is was roots of a horsetail/annularia.
  13. Hi guys! Found this at Mona Vale (Sydney, Australia), early triassic, Narrabeen group. Fossil ID please.
  14. Hi, I bought this at a flea market in McKinney, TX about 8 years ago and am trying to get it identified. The person selling it didn’t have any information on where it was found or what it is. I took it to a local rock shop recently to see if it could be ID’d. The owner is more skilled in minerals, but he thought it might be a fossil (stromatolite), and recommended I reach out to someone skilled in fossils to know for sure. Magnets do not stick to it at all. I found a small seashell attached to it, but nothing else on the outside. It’s a rounded triangular shape. Measures about 8 1/2” (32
  15. These are found among river stones that yield a lot of crinoid fragments and worm traces. Any idea would be appreciated as the leaf-shapes are funky!!

    What are these?

    Hello, I need help identifying some of these fossil. I am not even sure if they are all fossil but they look like they should be. They are from one of the paleo packs that paleo Chris sells.

    South Jersey Creek Find

    Hey all, I found this in a South Jersey creek gravel bed. The particular spot is in the Navesink bedrock formation, but I'm unsure of how exposed it is (if at all.) I haven't found much in the way of fossils in this particular spot except a possible burrow and a possible oyster shell. I initially thought it was an odd looking concretion, but I cleaned it up and had second thoughts. It's extremely porous (passed the tongue test), which made me think bone. It's also very heavy. Please let me know if more pictures or information would help. Thank you in advance!

    Unknown fossil

    Hi All Fairly new to this. I went fossil hunting with my boy on a beach known for carboniferous fossils. We found a ton of brachiopod specimens but also found this. It may be another brachiopod specimen as there is also a brach mold fossil on the other side. But wondered if it might be something different? If its even a fossil at all.

    Unknown Trilobite

    Found this fossil online, but its labeled as an unidentified trilobite. Does anyone know what this is?
  20. So, I'm not sure where this rock is from or when, there is cretaceous to Precambrian rock in the area and it's all buried under glacial debris. I've been removing this thing from the rock, the other pictures may be clues as to what this is?
  21. Hello everyone! I'm new here and new to fossil everything and learning as much as I can. I may have found my first trilobite and I have ideas of what it could be but not good at all with the process of identification or how it is oriented on/in the matrix. There are faint lines around the entire piece that seems to be other trilobites/parts. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks for looking! Please excuse any mistakes this is also my first time ever posting on a forum.

    Hello from Peru

    Hi, Mi names is José. I from Piura, a city in the northwestern cost of peru.

  23. Hello everyone, I apologise in advance for the lower quality photos, my phone is quite old and the camera is going. Anyways, I was down in Cape May this past weekend and I decided to beach comb on sunset beach. i found several interesting items, and I was wondering if I can get some input regarding what they are. The first two images seem to be a similar type of fossil (if it is one). I am wondering if it could potentially be Paleozoic (if anything?). However, I am not sure exactly what it is, nor the material that it is made of. The third image I think co

    Unknown Trilo

    I bought this trilobite from a small rock shop many years ago, and completely forgot about it until i opened up some old boxes in my house. No idea what kind of trilo it is, or if its even real or not. Can anyone ID this little guy?
