  1. So I found this today… I originally saw the hollow end and thought sloth tooth. But the side where the chewing surface would be is devoid of the enamel ring. However I’ve certainly seen sloth teeth that are worn down enough that the enamel is missing. However it looks like there’s enamel on the broken/hollow/supposed root end - a very thin layer though. The hollow end also has growth rings like a shark vertebra, and with the indent down the side, also points to vert. But it’s only on one side, not the other, which is smooth. That same indent also seems to rule out rib bone, as far

    Central Texas - Rudist ID?

    Hi all - I found this in a creek in Central Texas. Looks like a rudist to me. There’s a good amount of detail visible on it, so I was wondering if anyone might be able to ID it down to genus (or species)? Thanks so much!
  3. Hi all - I found these two pieces in Central Texas today. Anyone have any ideas? The first one looks like some kind of bone, the second looks like some kind of oolitic sediment or possibly a fossilized scute (according to google image search). I could also be way off on these. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
  4. So digging through micro matrix from the peace River this morning, and I came across this incredibly tiny mammal tooth. Using prior knowledge - 3 roots (2 missing, but still has the holes for the roots), with 1 root being thicker implies this is an upper premolar tooth. Short crown height so it’s from a senile animal. The chewing surface is similar to rodent teeth, but I’ve never seen a rodent tooth with roots. Could this be mouse? Bat? The size is incredibly tiny. Chewing surface about 1-1.5x1-1.5mm. Height including root about 2mm. @MarcoSr I know you picked through some Florida micro w
  5. First trip fossil hunting. Mix of vertibrate fossil, unidentified trace fossils, and pretty rocks (hard to tell from from the photo). Second batch is from Caparica, Miocene, including shark teeth (probably maku). Anyone want to help ID some?

    help with identifying these shells

    Hello everyone, I need you again. Today I bought some fossils, as a gift the seller sent me a shell (I don't know if they are brachiopods or bivalves). I asked him where they were from, and he told me that they were from Costa Rica, from a place called Puntarenas, but I looked up information on PBDB Navigator and there is no fossil site in that specific place (although there are two places nearby that date from the Eocene). . Could someone give me more information? I leave some images

    Sinuous, fuzzy fossil

    My son found this in northwest Arkansas. I'm certain it's a common fossil, but multiple Google searches and a reverse image search yielded nothing. He really wants to learn about it, so I thought I'd post here. Thanks, in advance!
  8. Found this tooth in my micro mix - it’s about 1-1.5mm long. Has a cusp. Is unbroken (Except maybe missing a cusp on the other side??) but looks like symphyseal lemon shark teeth roots I’ve seen… got no idea! @Al Dente @hemipristis @MarcoSr
  9. Hi all - relatively new here so I hope this format is ok. Just looking for some help with possible IDs on a variety of finds, all from the same area in Central Texas.

  10. I found these on the beach in The Netherlands. I would appreciate if someone would tell me if they are fossils or just rocks and what they are, if fossils. In the case of the sand dollars, I don't know if they are skeletons or fossils. They are hard and I can't break them. Thank you so much!

    Even More fossil Identification

    I got some more bones from Botna Bend near Oakland Iowa from the pleistocene and I really appreciate all the help, helps me learn.
  12. This mystery fossil was found in a rock pile in the Caledon, ON area, not far from the Niagara Escarpment. When I split the rock, it was revealed and split into convex and concave halves that then fit together. It is almost perfectly circular, and is 13mm (0.51 inches or just over 1/2 inch) in diameter. There are clearly many other fossils within this rock, but I fear splitting it further and destroying this mystery fossil without ID on it first. I've taken it to a few other hobbyists I know in person, but they has also been unable to ID it, and the best guess I've rec

    Ramanessin Bone Id

    Hi all, me again, I wanted to share a closeup of the bone fragments that I found in Ramanessin to see if I could get them ID'd further since I know how the brook tends to make fake fossil bones i want to check that the ones I found are real fossil bone 1) the big one, i think it might be a cretaceous turtle shell, it passed the burn, and the lick test. 1A) I believe these are also enchodus jaw fragments. 2) 2A)
  14. Stick around, this one's a read but I'll try to make it fun. So, I have been to big brook last year, and While I enjoyed it, since I went in early feb, the ground was frozen which prevented me from finding much, as the brook was stingy that day. Nonetheless I decided to try my luck with Ramanessin as i heard good things about it. Because none of my family or friends could be bothered, I decided to take a day off work and drive 4 hours to the area and spend the night so I could get the most out of the location. what follows is the result of 2 days straight of fossil hunting. which I

    Peace River Ear bone

    Found this earbone this past week - have another just like it, but never got an ID. So hopefully this time around I can! It’s 1.2”/30mm long. @Shellseeker @diginupbones @Harry Pristis

    Looking for an ID :)

    Hey everyone! I picked this up a few years ago from a garage sale and finally decided to clean it up and was astounded at how detailed it is! I don’t know anything about petrified wood so I’m looking to you fine people to help with an ID and maybe an appraisal? It’s about 16” long and 3” wide and weighs about 4lbs. I live in southwest Colorado but I have no idea where they had found it, I didn’t ask

    Peace River - multiple IDs needed

    So was out hunting yesterday - and I will definitely be making a trip report because I came away with a ridiculous number of amazing finds. But before that - I need ids! So to start off - 1) Found a massive astragalus. 2.5”/64mm. Matches Equus, but these astragalii I found a while ago were IDd as Equus and they are about half the size: One from yesterday: So is the new one Equus and my old ones are 3-toed? 2) Found a symphysis from some mammal. It’s still got the incisor roots, and an unerupted canine, but I can’t see the canine we
  18. So one of my very first few trips out, I found what I had originally thought was a piece of enamel from some tooth or something, and nearly a year later, that was my assumption… until my friend asks me for his opinion on something which turns out to be near-identical, found in pretty much the same area. I’m thinking fish tooth, but I might be way off. @Al Dente @hemipristis @Shellseeker @Harry Pristis any ideas? Mine: My friends:

    Crinoid ID Help

    Hello! Looking to see if anyone can tell me what species these crinoids are! It was found in O’Fallon, Missouri. Mississippian Period limestone rock outcropping (road cut). Specific location: (38.8189493, -90.7276743) These are the same fossil ^^^^ These three are the same^^^
  20. Hey everyone! Found this astragalus this past weekend. Not sure if it’s deer or peccary, or if it’s too worn to tell for sure. Measures 38mmx19mm @Harry Pristis @Shellseeker
  21. Just came back from a fossil hunting trip. Most of my findings are on softer shale rocks so they’re very delicate. Really would appreciate your help to identify whether they’re a fossil or just a cool looking rock. I have tried my best to take good pictures but I am willing to post again if anyone wants a different angle.

    Looking for an ID to species level if possible

    Hello, looking to see if anyone can ID any of these to species level? They were found in a creek which is a mix of Middle Ordovician and Lower Mississippian rock in Defiance MO . Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    ID help needed - Texas

    Hi all - can anyone help with this one? I have no idea. Found in the central Texas area.
  24. Hey everyone! Posting on behalf of a friend who isn’t on TFF - he found this very small jaw section with a tooth in it in the Gainesville area. It looks like a deer tooth to me - but I’ve never seen a deer tooth this small. The crown length is 0.25”/6mm. @Shellseeker @Harry Pristis
