    Scratch marks

    Hi I was on a friends property near Boulder and golden Colorado and found ripples from water. When I looked closer it looked like there were scratch marks possibly from a dinosaur. When I looked on a geologic map it said the age was creatacous. I’m just wondering if it could possibly be scratch marks from the beasts the used to wander the earth. I think the formation is the Dakota formation. Any help would be appreciated.
  2. Absurdly Curious

    Concretion? Ammanoid? Rolled up trilobite?

    Here's another one, smashed up crazy concretion, a shell, or are those legs?

    Lake Texoma Find!

    It’s been a while, but now I’ve got something worth posting about that I’d like identified. :) Took a trip to Lake Texoma yesterday and my husband found this. My guess is some kind of bivalve, but I’m hoping that someone here has a little more knowledge.

    Fossil Jaw-Partial

    Hi all! I was recently visiting with another naturalist, helping them to identify some of the donated rocks and fossils in their collection. There were a few that stumped us both, and unfortunately they couldn't tell me where any of the specimens were originally found, or the period anything was from with any certainty. I'll make separate posts for the different pieces. But here's part one to start with. A partial jaw with large molars, certainly from a large herbivore. The other naturalist suggested perhaps from a moose, and I also found similarities in the shape to other cervids,

    What is this

    Woo-hoo! Here goes my first one! I never knew taking photos of tiny, inanimate objects would be so hard!! These are awful and I'm not pleased. I will get better ones if I need to, but I'm curious to see if this is an easy one and no further photos are needed. Ok so these were found roughly a year apart (early 2000s) in the same creek in north-central Tennessee. Not a clue as to the layers or geology. They feel sand-stony, the larger one is rougher. The larger one also has a glob of matrix on (what I'm calling) the bottom with tiny crinoid segments stuck in it. I'v
  6. I found this oddity amongst a heap of large concretions I've hoarded over the last few years. I haven't explored other areas much, due to the productivity (and concentration) of fossil bearing coleraine formation In the location I hunt. So, I believe this piece came from that same area. After the dried mud was washed off and I saw the banding and what looks like grain, I can't help but think that this is wood. It's also UV florescent, glowing a dull orange when exposed to a UV light. I have a tendency to get quite excited about nodules though, so I would appreciate any
  7. Hi, I am new to fossil hunting. I found this today on uk beach where the rocks are from the triassic/jurassic period. It is quite large and is corrugated, similar to corrugated iorn. does any body know what it is? Many thanks
  8. Hi everyone, I own this wonderful toe bone from the Morrison formation stated to be allosaurus but I have a feeling it came from its contemporary rival camptosaurus anyone know if this is really a camptosaurus.

    Is this a fossil?

    I peaked down while fishing in southeast Minnesota and this interesting rock or maybe fossil caught my eye. This is limestone bluff country. Please share your thoughts on whether or not it’s a fossil and if so, what type it might be.

    Any idea what this is?

    Hi, we recently found this at Big Brook Preserve (NJ). Anyone know what this could be? It is comes to a point, solid like a rock and was in the bottom of a creek bed. Thanks in advance for your help!

    Possible Fossilized Vertebrae?

    Hi, we found these recently at Bog Brook Preserve (NJ) and wondered if they could be fossilized vertebrae or something else? I will admit that we are new and sometimes wonder if we are seeing things that aren't there! :-) Because we found these at a known fossil site and they have very interesting shapes...we wondered what they could be. Thanks for any help!

    Not sure

    Found near a creek bed on Staten Island, NY. Any idea of what it could be? Thanks!

    Fossilized coral?

    Another one I hoped to get some clarity on. Found on the beach in Staten Island, N.Y. Maybe honeycomb fossil but if anyone is familiar with this, I'd love to learn more. Thanks again!

    Need your help to id this Kansas fossil

    Location: Cherokee County, Kansas, at the edge of Shoal creek. Found this in most most extreme southeast corner of the state.
  15. Hello everyone! This is my first post on the forum so forgive me if I make any mistakes today. I just bought a little trilobite today from a shop in Athens, Greece. It's my first time buying a trilobite, and so me being a noob at telling the differences between a fake and non-fake, I wanted to ask your opinion. It's a Moroccan trilobite and I don't know the specific species. It's black in color on a grey matrix, it's not too light in weight for it's size but not too heavy either, it's 3cm in length and it has holes and it depending on what species it is it doesn't seem
  16. I found this fossil in Alberta on the Wapiti river near Grande Prairie. I have seen quite a few over the years and decided to grab one that was laying on the shore near a bank that erodes more and more with each passing year. I was hoping someone may have be able to tell me something about this.

    Aust Cliff Bivalves?

    Just took a trip to Aust Cliff, close to Bristol, UK, and found this fossiliferous piece. I wonder what this light brown one is. I can recognize the umbo.
  18. Hey everyone! A few weekends ago I did my second-ever fossil hunting trip at the well known site of Beaumaris Bay in Melbourne. I was hoping to find a shark tooth, and we did bump into a fellow hunter who had found a couple perfect specimens, but they remained elusive - a good reason to go back! We also saw a fair number of families fossil hunting, and it was nice to see lots of people getting into the hobby at such a lovely environment! I myself found too many echinoids to keep [2], specifically specimens of the heart urchin Lovenia woodsii (not to be confused with its cousin, Lovenia forbesi

    Devonian Gastropod

    Been putting some hours in digging Montour Preserve. A few trilos have come out of the ground, but Mostly calcitic shells and crinoid. This one’s identity has eluded me so far and I has wondering if anyone could help me out. The site is part of the Devonian Mahatango formation in Upper PA

    What kinda teeth are these?

    Hi, I went to the fleamarket and bought these. One is some kind of shark tooth, the other a crocodile tooth from the miocene I believe. What do you think?

    Lance Formation Bone Id

    Hello fellow fossil hunters, I have a bit of a problematic guess here. I have a bone from the Lance Formation of Wyoming and need some help IDing it. It seems to resemble something like a crocodile coracoid, but not as spot on as I hoped it would. If you have any suggestions I would be glad to here them. Appreciate the help and if you have identified my mystery bone, please send sources to how you know what bone it is. Never will pass an opportunity to learn. Thank you.
