  1. Beach Find from Portugal

    Hello from Portugal! A 100% layman here. Not even sure if this is in fact a fossil, but am very intrigued by its shape. Seems partially fossilized - the sides are stoney and symmetrically flanking what appears to be a fragment of some form of segmented exoskeleton (?) which seems quite hard and strong despite its flakey appearance. I found it in the Algarve, at Galé Beach / Praia de Galé in Albufeira, Portugal. Have you seen similar finds? So interested in hearing your thoughts! PS I tried to provide useful photos, definitely let me know if I can do better to enhance the inspection!
  2. Another trace fossil... probably.?

    I'm not too hopeful about this one. But still a cool rock.
  3. Help with ID

    I picked this up at Salamonie State Park in Huntington County, IN. Someone suggested it might be an icno fossil? 4.5 cm x 1.5 cm. Thx!
  4. Unidentified Teeth!

    I need help identifying these teeth! If anyone could help that would be great! We are in broadwater county in Montana if that can help at all in identifying them.
  5. Big Brook Jaw Section?

    Hello everyone, I was in Big Brook nj for a little while today and found this interesting bone. I'm not to sure if it's identifiable but it does remind me of a jaw section like a mosasaur or croc. Any help will appreciated, if I missed an angle or need additional pictures do let me know.
  6. Mystery Cretaceous Tooth New Jersey NJ

    Hello everyone, found this mysterious tooth in a cretaceous stream in New Jersey. Haven't come across any similar or anything I can really compare it to, plus its kinda worn. Which doesn't help but the leaf-like shape alone is very interesting, hopefully this one can be figured out.
  7. Hi, Looking for identification. It is the first hunt in a long time, and the kids and I were searching for shark teeth along the Calvert Cliff formation in Maryland. We found what we believe is a whale rib, but wanted to get some expert eyes on it. It is approximately 10” by 4” and 2” thick. It is dense weighing about 2 1/2 pounds. Almost has a “metal” fell to it. The shape just looks too unique to be a rock. We found it near a fresh fall section. What do you think it is?
  8. Found at the beach in South sweden

    I have no guess as to what this could be. A fossil or another sneaky rock I tried google, but I don’t even know what to type in Thank you for your patience and help!
  9. Tooth?

    Hello! I found this pretty little thing at the beach today. It seems to be a tooth of some sort. It’s about 4 cm long and 2,5 cm wide. Would love any feedback I could get on what it might have belonged to. Unfortunately it’s very frail and broke as I brought it home, but I tried to piece it together for the photos. The first two photos are taken with microscope 200x enlargement. thank you for taking the time to look at it!
  10. Flint nodule

    I found this in my fathers collection of flint stones. I’ve been meaning to pop some of them open, but this one already shows some of its secrets. I’m afraid to break it, how would you go on about it? And does any of you have a guess of what it could be? I am very much a rookie at this.
  11. Bone Fragment From Post Oak Creek, TX

    Can anyone help me identify this bone fragment ? It’s from Sherman, TX at Post Oak Creek. It’s drying right now from being in the stream. Is it fossilized ? Modern ? Bison ? Cow?
  12. Tooth from Post Oak Creek, TX

    I thought this was a sharks tooth but now I’m having second guesses.
  13. I found this last year in north-central New York. It is from the Ordovician whetstone gulf formation and is about 1cm wide. I’m thinking it may be a crinoid calyx base but I may be wrong. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  14. Today on a hunt in the lower devonian of new york, I found on of the most unusual piece and I can't decide if its bryzoan or possible placoderm.
  15. Plattsburgh Ordovician fossil

    A month or so ago I found these while trout fishing in a creek in the lower Champlain valley. I have no idea what they are, so any info would be very helpful. They were from Ordovician rock that was pretty barren except for a few brachiopods.
  16. Peace River fossil

    Peace River April 13, 2020 Found near Wauchula, Fl. I 'd appreciate nay help identifying this fossil? Thanks Steve
  17. Possible crab fossil/Fossil ID

    While rock hunting out on our local river the other day for jasper, agate, concretions, and petrified wood; my little brother came across a fossil that we believe to be a crab shell. I am quite the amateur when it comes to fossils but hope to increase my knowledge as I go along. If anyone can identify the species or anything else about this specimen it would be greatly appreciated. Our area is Northern Oregon if that helps narrow anything down. UPDATE: After a lot more research, I believe it may be a Macroacaena, but not 100% sure.
  18. Unknown vertebra?

  19. What is it?

    The dimensions of the fossil are 1 cm x 0.5 cm. I can't figure what could be.
  20. Hello everyone, found this hallowed out bone in Big Brook nj. It is rock solid and when I did the burn test on it, it remain unscathed with no smell so I definitely think its fossilized bone. I'm not to sure if it's identifiable as is, any thoughts on this one will be appreciated.
  21. Hello everyone, Does anybody know what this might be? Found in a stream in the forest in the region of calvados, Normandy,France. I have never found anything like this. U cant really see the details of the thing sticking out of the spongelike matrix in the pics cause my camera is not the best. But here we go:
  22. Stone Fossil ID

    Hello everyone, Does anyone know what it could be? ... is this Geologic or fossilized?, if it’s fossilized, what did it come from? And if so would it be a finger, or toe bone ? Found in the country of Mexico, specifically in the state of Guerrero, in a limestone mountain near some volcanic area or with tectonic plate activity, because there is quartz in the surroundings. I have never come across anything like this and around the discovery there are some pieces like these with some similar characteristics Thank you!!
  23. Newbies looking for Fossil identification

    Hi There Myself and my two boys have just started fossil hunting. We have no clue what we are doing ,but it's exciting and the boys are ecstatic about doing this and very eager to learn. Please help with our first identification. This rock is used as an artificial river bed filler. We don't know where it was quarried ,but are keen to know what fossils are inside. I'm assuming some type of sea bed coral or tube. PS: Will return rock when identified.
  24. Weird Wisconsin Fossil

    Recently I discovered the joy of fossil collection and hunting ( thanks Covid19 , you can go away now). I have primarily been finding things in eastern Wisonsin and from the Silurian reef that used to be here. A couple of days ago I found an area with some weird looking fossils. They almost look like tentacles or worms . I am really unsure what they are. Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated. I am a novice at this but have been reading up and educating myself as much as I can . Thank you !
  25. Does anyone know what this might be? The surface of the rock is flat.
