  1. Just came back from Beaumaris Fossil beach and I have a load of fossils, I’d appreciate getting them identified I know that a few are sea urchins, and the shell but I’m just not sure about the other pieces Note: unfortunately I forgot to add a ruler/item for scale
  2. Jo-and-Ho

    What is this? A toenail?

    Can someone ID this find from the Savannah River in Georgia? I’m think sloth toenail?

    Is this Petrified wood?

    Hi, I’m new to attempting to find pet wood. Was wondering if this could be an example. Found in b.c Canada
  4. Maybe it’s nothing but this rock bone thing is weird and I kept it in case it’s anything significant. I found it on the beach today in seaside, oregon. I found it high in the sand above the tide line in an area with tons of rocks. I can’t scratch anything off with my nail , it is porous. It’s not light like I would expect it to be if it were wood. Any ideas?
  5. Hello everyone, I am your member since yesterday and this is my second post. I wonder if you can help me with identification? I think these are the shells of some molluscs.. I live in Dubrovnik, Croatia and our rocks are extremely rich in these fossils, but I don't know which ones they are? Our rocks here are mostly white limestones of Cretaceous age, and as far as I've seen online, the rudists, which are abundant here, don't have a two-part shell, like this creature? It seems so to me. Thanks everyone in advance ! And what do you think, should I try to dissolve them
  6. Hi, I’ve recently been searching through some sifted gravel from a creek. I’ve been looking for microfossils, which I’ve had plenty of luck finding. All sorts of marine Cretaceous invertebrate micros are abundant in the creek gravel, as well as the occasional micro shark/fish tooth, scale, and bone fragment. I encountered a tooth that stood out from anything I’ve found so far. It has a conical shape, and is recurved. Something about this tooth seems very reptile-like. Almost looks like a tiny version of a crocodile or mosasaur tooth. The tooth measures 1 millimeter in length. I tried

    Please help identifying!

    Found In south east Georgia

    Possible shark tooth

    Found this on the pacific coast of Costa Rica, I know it’s not rare to find teeth on the beaches here however this has been weathered down so it’s smooth. Me and my friend are in a debate about what it is so any opinions or validations would be appreciated. I personally think a very old meg tooth

    Possible Ammonite found in Tulsa, OK area

    I found this last week in the Tulsa, Oklahoma area at one of the larger county parks. Anyway, am I the only one who thinks this might be a small ammonite in this piece of sandstone? You can see one of my fingers in the background to give you a size reference. If this is an ammonite, how would you suggest I remove it from the sandstone matrix. The whole rock is around the size of a softball. Thank you for all for any advice or comments given. Stay safe, Bobo

    What kind of bone is this?

    Found on beach in North Florida. About 80 x 20 mm.
  20. First one was theorized to be a gerastos trilobite, but I am unsure after comparing images The second image came with a note that said pachycephalosaurus vertebrae, hell creek. I don't know how accurate that is but if someone could at least tell me what type of vertebrae this is because all the ones I looked up were not this intricate Third and fourth one I have no idea what they are they never had any notes attached when I unpacked. I completely understand if nobody can identify exactly what they are but if someone can tell me what bones they at least are I'm happy wit
  21. Hello. I found this stone in Austin Texas, USA. It is covered on both sides with these little possible leaves, most at about 2-3 centimeters in length. Few are very clear, so I tried to get a couple good photos of the best ones. It was sitting at the top of a rocky hill in northern Austin, I believe what is called the Great Hills area. There were a lot of bivalves nearby, even snagged a lovely Exogyra ponderosa. But this one seems to allude me. Leaf shaped fronds, but the inside shape almost seems more animal than plant. Any help is deeply appreciated!
  22. Hey there everyone! I haven't been on in some time but I've just started unpacking my stuff from a move and I came across this fossil that I found in the fall of last year. I found it in an eroding gravel cliff that I frequently find Coleraine formation deposits in. This fossil is one of the handful that I haven't been able to identify. Whatever it is, it's one of the larger fossil/casts that I've found. Any help would be appreciated!
  23. The first is only about 1 and a half inches long while the second is closer to 3 and a quarter. Certificates are attached to help narrow it down. I'm trying to make little info plaques for my display case so any additional info is welcome!

    Is this a fossil?

    Found in Martin Kentucky, Middle Pennsylvanian, Hayden Formation. I thought I found a geode the other day so cut it open. The surrounding material got a somewhat mirror shine from the cutting tool (I assume iron rock). However when I hit it with a hammer and it cracked open I found this inside. It looks, to me, like a small fish or plant. I have no idea if this is even a fossil, so any help would be wonderful. Thanks in advance.
