    Possible Dino tooth

    Found this tooth in Jacksonville Florida, wondering if it's a Dino tooth. Any help would be appreciated. The tooth is about one inch long and 3/4 wide. Thank you

    Is this a Dinosaur tooth?

    Is this a Dinosaur tooth? Found at Yaverland Beach - Isle Of Wight, United Kingdom.
  3. Trying to help a friend ID this find from Cibilo Creek in Wilson County, Texas; as It appears to be not-coral and bigger than a US quarter, it is automatically far (FARRR) outside of my wheelhouse, I probably know more about the crackers. Thx for taking the time to give this an eyeballing; anything that anyone can share towards making this ID is enormously appreciated. 74758FD2-361E-4E30-B08A-B273FACDAE10.webp

    Identification Help Needed

    Recently found this fossil while on family vacation in South-Central Minnesota. The site is limestone and also had a lot of Brachiopods. I'm so tired of relatives joking its poo. Hoping someone can help me ID it, the internet was of no help so far.

    Just a rock?

    Found this while hunting for fossils in South-Central Minnesota. Most of the fossils we found were easily identified brachiopods.The shape of this rock was very different from those around it. The curve was so uniform, maybe it's just a rock. I am less than a novice at this so I really don't know. It also appears to have some plant fossils on it and between some layers. Maybe Bryozoan?? I would really appreciate some help in identifying any feature in the picture. Thank you so much! The first photo is the back, second picture is close up of the front, third picture is broken side s
  6. Hi all, I was looking over some finds from Sunset Beach when I reexamined this and thought it looked organic. Sticks to my tongue, feels relatively heavy. Is this a fossil bone? Sunset Beach is awesome and I definitely recommend the visit, especially before the shipwreck is fully lost to the sea. Fossils seem really rare there, but the colorful quartz and minerals polished by waves make up for it.

    Fossil or Xenolith?

    Look I found a thing! Usually when I see a rock embedded in another rock I think fossil... however IF this is a fossil I have no idea what it would be. So at this point im thinking maybe its another Xenolith. What are your thoughts? For anyone interested, this was found near Vancouver Canadia.

    I believe these were found in the Lake Texoma area. Any suggestions on what they are and how I might remove some of the sediment would be much appreciated. Thank you!

    Texas Hill Country Dinosaur?

    Hi All - hoping for some help in identifying if this is a fossil. Looks to be a hip or shoulder piece? I know they have found have been T-Rex, Iguanadon and Mosasaurus in the Texas Hill country. It is very pourous. About 3 feet in length. Any help is appreciated.
  10. Hello! I got a few bags of rocks from Home Depot the other week to use for a project, and when I was washing them off I found a couple neat things. Unfortunately the bags were thrown away and the garbage was picked up yesterday so I can't check the bags for the quarry locations, but the bags were purchased in Wisconsin so I would reckon the rocks are from either Wisconsin, Minnesota or Illinois. Here are both next to a tape measure. I'm pretty sure the left one is some kind of brachiopod but I have no idea what the striped one is or if it's even a fossil: A

    Can anyone tell me what this is?

    Does anyone know what this might be, found it on peace river?
  12. Purplesandpiper

    Found in North New Jersey

    Understand this may just be a rock but nothing around in the creek bed matches what this looks like. Not sure if it’s some sort of shell concretion or what. Just wondering if anyone had any thoughts.

    Fossil ID Texas

    I found these two fossils one is for sure a bone not sure about the other. Found in Austin Chalk. Monsasaur have been found in the general area.

    I found this fossil a few years ago along the Potomac River, I am thinking it is a Chesapecten sp.?
  16. This little one is packed full of pretties, mysterious, and wonder! I would love to know about all of the surprises in this one, anyone that can teach me is welcome to shout it out! Have fun with this one! Thank you so much! I am excited to finally know!
  17. Hi Everyone, It has been a long time since I asked for help Identifying something. This is very intriguing and also very confusing for me to identify. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I found this a week ago in the Ramanessin Brook in NJ. Thanks!
  18. These pictures are all the same rock just different angles for texture and visual show, I haven't found anything else in the rest of the item, just the lump ( which my husband has dubbed.. the klingon mini crater)
  19. Hello! I had a great time at Ramanessin with the crew from DVPS. After everyone left, I went above the spillway and spent a couple hours sifting there. Eventually, I found this tooth! It's smaller and more intact than the mosasaur teeth I've seen online, but there are pretty clear enamel lines and cutting edges that cause me to lean away from IDing it as crocodilian. Would someone ID it for me please? Thank you!
  20. Hi all, I recently found this fossil, and I was hoping I could find some help here identifying it. I found it at Fort Sheridan in Illinois, and wasn’t expecting something that looked like it could be vertebrate. I’m familiar with the fossils with the area, and was surprised to find something like this. Any ID suggestions or suggestions for where to get it ID’d would be appreciated. Someone I talked to said it may be an amphibian/tetrapod fossil (potentially an egg) Description of fossil: small potato shaped rock with skull and thorax of specimen showing. “Feet” protrudi
  21. Thos was found on private property near a small river near Valley Mills, Texas. Thanks for your time in hoping me ID my fossil!

    Sponge or wishful thinking?

    Hi all! I found this egg shaped, non-magnetic, stone on the shoreline of Cayuga Lake in New York. It has a sandy, gritty texture and seems heavy for it's size. Being in an area where I find glacial deposits & till, identifying fossils and stones can be an adventure. Could this possibly be a very worn fossilized sponge or just another variety of interesting "holy rollers" washed up on shore. I find quite an assortment here. Please excuse the plant debris (small whitish fibers), I didn't want to scrub it too harshly.

    Backyard find - I've seen this here before?

    So there is this nifty oddity, I found it in my backyard pool decor rock bed. The first photo is the entire thing. Then i show them separately. I am sorry that I used the penny this time for size, I found my square for the next time.. I saw someone else post a fossil like this one; however, I am a newbie and I have not figured out how to look for other photos yet.

    Plant or animal?

    Scotland, Solway Firth, thought crinoid but friend thinks plant- club moss? Any ideas. Measurements are 20cm x 5cm for “stem” section corals and bivalve shells in rocks around these examples. Carboniferous era.
