  1. Hi guys and gals! I found this mystery fossil a few years ago and the people I spoke to at SMU and the Perot are not sure as to what it is. I thought I throw it out here and see what opinions you all might have. Thanks for taking the time to look and try to help. Woodbine Formation : 95-98mya North Texas
  2. I’m wondering if these two teeth (both are from the Morrison Formation in Moffat County, Colorado) have been identified correctly as Allosaurus and Marshosaurus. Here are the measurements of both: Allosaurus: 4cm long serration count is 10/5mm on anterior and posterior carinae base length is 21mm and base width is 13.5 mm (note from dealer: Please note that the base of this tooth is broken and the transition of enamel to root is not present. The base measurement may have been larger.) Marshosaurus: 4cm long se

    Fossil (?) ID, Isle of Wight

    Hello people, glad I found this forum as I love fossil hunting but am never sure of what I find, beyond speculation. I found this little piece resting on the sand earlier today at Whitecliff Bay on the Isle of Wight. Any thoughts? I’ve taken a few pictures to try to give some indication of size. TIA

    Tully Monster?

    Saw this one listed as a tully monster online, but I'm decently sure that its been misidentified. Am I correct on this?

    Lost River, WV Clinton Group Fossils

    Here are some fossils from Lost River, WV. They were found near the Needmore formation roadside quarry. These fossils are not from the Needmore formation, instead they are from the Clinton Group. The Clinton Group, from what I found during my research, is composed of the Keefer and Rose Hill formations.
  6. So, I have a nice collection of fossils ive found from 2 seperate trips to Aurora... I was told the straight and curved bones could be ribs (most likely dolphin), but I am unsure. I also have a 2-3 inch bone that lolks like it could be from a land animal. I also have 3 different vertebrates from something... One is medium-small, one is small, and then the other one is really small lol. Then, in the last picture and in the middle of the row... I have no idea what it could be, it looks like an imprimt of a plant maybe? I found another one and its red, but I forget where I put it... At the beginn

    Cretaceous Mammal Tooth Fossil ID Please

    Hi, I recently got this cretaceous mammal tooth from the Hell Creek formation, and I was wondering if you may help me find the scientific name of the species that it belonged to. I've done some research and learned that it was the premolar of a Multituberculate mammal. This order of mammals was diverse and there were many species. I think it might be one of the members of the Genus, Mesodma, Yet I could be wrong. I tried to narrow it down to the exact species, yet there are few examples to help me pinpoint to a certain Id. This tiny tooth is from Garfield County, Montana. it is from the late c
  9. Hey guys we found a box of whole body fossils in a box in my dads room after he had passed away. Could you guys be so kind and help me identify these guys and what would be recommended ways to help preserve them.

    Is this anything? in Oklahoma

    Found this in a big boulder along a creek in eastern Oklahoma. Is this a fossil, and if so...what is it? Thanks for your help!

    Truncatiramus Eurypterid WV?

    I was wondering whether this belongs to a Eurypterid. The only recorded genus of Eurypterids at the locality is Truncatiramus. Formation: Bloomsburg-Williamsport Formation. Age: Silurian. Other recorded fossils: Tentaculites sp., Klodenella sp., and Stromatapora sp. Second photo:
  13. Hey! I'm a bit new to this, so please forgive me A friend recently gave me a bunch of fossils she bought a while ago. I've been trying to identify them - most of them are relatively straightforward, but I'm not sure whether this fossil is a piece of coral or a byrozoan (fossil length 4cm). Any help would be much appreciated.
  14. Hello! I’m back from a trip to Texas, and while there I did quite a lot of fossil hunting. I’m not going to be uploading everything here (because I found quite a bit and I feel a bit bad putting so many), but I figured I’d post the ones I’m most stumped on. I’d really appreciate any help. I’m on mobile, so I’m not sure if these will upload in order (they should, but if not I’ll fix it on PC soon). 1: Not sure what this is, but I really like how it’s intact on both sides. Found at Benbrook Lake, Fort Worth to the left of the marina. 2: My dad is mostly interested in this one. May

    Not sure what these are

    Hi all, I found this specimen while exploring the desert around Las Vegas. Does anyone know what I’m looking at?
  16. Hi there! I’m coming back from a trip to Texas, and I’ve gone fossil hunting a few times while there (figured I might as well since I’m out of state). I’ve found a few ammonites and other Cretaceous fossils before, which I’ll get uploaded here later— however, I was hoping to see if anyone knew what this funny looking rock might be. I’m not great at identifying fossils yet, but we all agreed we thought it looked like some kind of coprolite. Found in Fossil Creek Park, Texas right by the creek. I’d appreciate any help :-)

    Mystery Huge Anomalocaris Appendange?

    Hi, I have this mystery piece of what appears to be anomalocarid appendage of sorts. The problem is I did not receive any information with it and it came out of an old collection from Maine, Usa. I'm not to sure what else it could be from the appearance but I am also very uncertain of the exact species. The piece of a very laminated sparkly shale If I had to guess it could've came from either Burgess Shale, Utah, or Nevada but I not sure what locality it could be from so if anyone if familiar with these shales and can tell from the preservation it would be a huge help, thank you and looking fo

    Weird black thing

    I saw this little black thing on a crinoid plate, and I haven't been able to figure it out. It looks almost like a trilobite cheek or a cephalon or maybe even a crinoid calyx shard. Anyone know what it is?
  21. I found this upper canine from a Smilodon for sale online. The number of surface imperfections lead me to believe the tooth is authentic though it could be a particularly well done cast. The seller has a couple other Smilodon fossils both of which seem legitimate. However the fossil is coming from China and I hear falsified fossils are very common in China. I would greatly appreciate another opinion thanks.

    Another Judith river matrix tooth.

    I was looking through my biggest piece of matrix from Judith river (it’s filled with shells unlike the other ones) and I noticed this poking out. It was very easy to remove. This doesn’t look like the two other shed teeth I have is this one unworn with a root attached? And is it also a ceretopsian? .4 inches long.

    Does anybody know what species this trilobite is?

    Judith River Hadrosaur tooth?

    I’m working on another piece of Judith River matrix that I got at the Denver show this year. I think this could be considered one of the better pieces it’s one of the larger ones for sure. It’s shy of a half inch long somewhere between 0.3 and 0.4 inches, but there is more to expose at the base.
