    Questions about a few teeth

    These are a few of the nicest/most interesting teeth I've found, and I was wondering if anyone knows about the two on the bottom left. I think the one with the red and orange tip is some sort of mako tooth or a similar species, and from what I could find the one beside it with the round profile could be one of the earliest ancestors of white sharks. The top three I believe are all from megalodons, as well as the really short yellow tooth on the bottom. I think that one is a tooth that was growing inside the jaw or something due to its small size compared to the size of the root. The smaller to

    Is this fossil? Please help ID

    Hi, I have found this in New Zealand close to Orere Point on the North Island on a beach. Can someone please help me ID this? I believe it could be a tooth or a fossilized barnacle, or maybe a fancy rock :), thanks

    Curious little tooth shape

    Here's something I've been trying to ID for a while. At first I thought it was a conodont, but all my research has so far indicated that it's too big to be one, and I don't really know what else it could be, or if it's even a fossil at all. Any input is highly appreciated

    Vertebrae? What is it!?

    I found these in central KY, dry creek bed areas. I think they may be vertebraes. But I just don’t know… and if so, what kind? Shark? Dino? I have one at least 4 times as big as this one as well! Whale? I’ll add it in another post. Any ideas?

    Fossilized Tree Bark?

    I’ve had this fossil in the back of my case for a while, and only remembered it recently. It appears to be some sort of bark, but I am unsure if it is so. I found it in Nova Scotia a long time ago, and unfortunately didn’t think to write down location. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
  6. Hi, it would be nice if I could get some opinions on this grallator footprint I purchased as I don’t know anything about this kind of stuff and how to spot if it’s fake, and another thing I’m confused about, if u flip it over there’s another footprint on the other side but it doesn’t match with the over one?

    Is this a fossil? Maybe fenestella? Or is it natural

    Central Ohio Limestone?

    Hi! Thought I'd give this a shot: I found this piece as a kid, and have held on tight to it because it's always been my "cool rock I found all by myself". Decades later, my opinion hasn't changed. Found in a rural part southern-central Ohio. Decent weight for its size, would definitely hurt if someone threw it at ya. My only query is that I have no idea what it is, as a super amateur mineral collector/enthusiast. Some strangers on the internet have pointed to it being limestone, but no guesses on what's imprinted on it (if anything). Would love to hear some opinions, or just for so

    Possible covered Silurian bivalve?

    I did more collecting by the Grand River the other day and pulled this out of one of the cliffs. With its ridged and seemingly circular shape I think it may be an ammonite. The exposed portion is about 1.5cm. Please let me know if images of better quality are needed for an ID.

    Silurian Fossil ID

    I was visiting Fergus, Ontario, earlier today and found some fossils along the Grand River. I am unsure what they are: piece 1 (first 3 images) is definitely a fossil, but I do not know for sure what. Is piece 2 a fossil or some geologic formation? Piece 1 is ~1.5cm Piece 2 is ~3.5cm Piece 1 seems to include this protrusion. The hole from the first 2 pictures is outlined in red.

    Hadrosaur or Ceratopsian Jaw?

    I found this in the Judith River Formation years ago but have never got it fully identified as a Hadrosaur or Ceratopsian jaw piece. Any help will be appreciated.
  12. Hi folks. New here. Glad I found the forum. My son and I found this in a creek bottom where we have found several large complete ammonites. Any ideas on what kind of bone it is?

    Sandstone in Rancho Palos Verdes, CA fossil?

    Found this about 10’-12’ deep while digging a soil sample in Rancho Palos Verdes, CA. I’m located on the peninsula, 575 feet above sea level. Object weighs 2.5 lbs and is pretty solid. Noticed a very small shell imprint. Ignore dark colors, it was damp from cleaning. any ideas on what it might be?

    Fossil ID Help

    Hi, Here is another find and a newbie ignorance question. I located on private land, in a wash, dried mud and sand. Mojave Desert near Barstow, California. Prehistoric bones have been found through the area. It is not a heavy as other rocks of like size, dark color, and the end broken open looks different than a rock. I thought petrified wood was a possibility, but it look nothing like the pieces of petrified wood I have. It doesn't feel spongey, but looks it a bit. It has a bone-type shape. I have not cleaned it yet, don't want to ruin it if I got lucky. Planter

    Please Help with Fossil ID

    Hi, I am new to this, so before this goes in the planter, I wanted to see if I could get an idea of what, if anything, I have. I located this in the San Bernardino County area of CA, private land, Mojave Desert, hills next to a wash, as you see it. I followed the instructions on this site, but pics may not be good. I can add more. If this is nothing or something I can keep, either way I appreciate everyone 's time. If I'm missing anything, please let me know. Thank you!

    Another mystery rock

    Ok, fossil forum, I've got another thing I'm not sure what to make of. A partial black stone about 3/4 inch long, with some interesting texturing on one of the flat sides and some porous dimpling on the rounded side. Found in Doña Ana county, New Mexico. Any ideas what it could be?

    Mississippian Shark

    I need help 2 give an id 2 this fossil it is from The Mississippian age found in Harrodsburg Limestone Formation Washington County, Indiana On the tag is saying it is Orodus which wasn’t around at that time and wasn’t a Hybodont Someone Who works with lots of Carboniferous fossils said it could be a Saivodus root(maybe upside down) what do you think.

    Fossils in black limestone

    Hi! I find this rock in the bottom of a shelf with a lot of fossil from different locations (Hungary, Morocco, Czech Republic, Madagascar ect.), but in this case i didn't find any paper . The rock is hard black limestone with quartz in the depression of the surface. I've never seen this kind of fossil before, I appreciate any help!
  20. Hi, This was found in a field in Macon county Georgia. It appears to be some type of bone and it’s in what appears to be limestone and is probably upper Cretaceous or lower Tertiary in age. Can anyone help me identify this?

    Petrified wood?

    Hi again, Fossil Forum! I've got a stone which I think is wood, but it's iffy enough for me to ask for a second opinion. Found in Doña Ana County, New Mexico. There is a lot of it out here! Anyway, let me know what you think! Size is roughly 3.5 cm wide, 3.5 cm tall, 1.5 cm thick at its thickest edge.

    Chattanooga Shale fossil ID

    Went to one of my local spots in the northern part of Davidson County last weekend and found a few unknown things within the shale. I know the strata is Chattanooga Shale and the era is from the Mississipian period, but these things are very different from what I have found in other areas of the same strata. Anybody familiar with these? Thank you.

    Rock or fossil

    Hi - I need help identifying whether this is a fossil. It has lots of ‘bone-looking’ parts sticking out. Hoping you can help. I found this while hiking in the Black Hills of SD.
