    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. The root/tooth is about 0.75 cm in size what do you think ? The bottom picture is a fossil of a Saivodus

    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!
  5. 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.

    Fossil Bone ID needed - Judith River Fmtn

    Hello, here is a bone I found in the JRF about a week ago. It was found in a site with various dinosaur and crocodilian teeth. Thanks for any help. It is 3.875" long.
  11. Found this while rockhounding pilgrim haven beach this weekend in southwestern Michigan to get anything not picked over during this years season when I came upon this. I have truly no idea what this could be, it looks like a fish to me but would there be any nice fossils this late in the season? And if so could it even be a fish? I thought we had corals, crinoids, bivalves, etc fossilized but this does not seem to be those.

    Any ideas?

    Does anyone have any ideas if this is actually a fossil and what it could be? I found it in west Wales by the sea, and I've found fossils very similar to what ever composition this is like a kind of gritty, sandy, delicate rock with tiny crinoid. Bits in it and stuff like that, this one doesn’t have any signs of crinoid, but it has a weird black lump sticking out and something white so this is a fossil?

    Pleistocene Fossils Need too ID

    I need help to identify these fossils I found in the Nishnabotna River at Botna Bend park in Iowa. What animals and what bones they are, thank you.
  14. This was acquired in petoskey along the water and I'm still not entirely sure if it's even a fossil at all, it looks like it could be a crinoid stem to me but there are people who know more about crinoid fossils than me

    Any ideas?

    Hi, I found this earlier near the beach in West Wales, does anyone know what it is?
  16. 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

    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
  19. 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?
  20. 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
  21. 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

    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
