    Two more Peace River ID’s needed

    So 2 more things I wanted to ask for IDs on. First is what I originally thought was Dugong bone - but now that it’s dried I can see concentric rings in it - which makes me think tusk? But no Schreger lines. The other is a piece of bone with an odd shape. 1) Possible tusk? 2) Bone @Shellseeker @Harry Pristis Either of you guys know? Thanks in advance!

    Peace River ID help

    So 3… specimens from Peace River that I’ve posted before but never got any ID’s on that I figured I’d repost and ask again - consolidated to one post. Not sure what any of the 3 are. 1) This feels like it could be a tooth? 2) Not a single idea what it could be. 3) Not sure if it’s a mineral like chert or mammoth enamel or something else. As always, any help is appreciated!
  3. I had found this tooth a while ago and was just now realizing it wasn’t in fact a shark tooth like I had originally thought - or at least I believe it isn’t, so any ID is appreciated! There’s very slightly worn away serrations on the blade near the root, the camera didn’t pick ‘em up. Also found this piece of bone (I think it’s bone, honestly could be rock) that looked pretty interestingly shaped, so I wanted to get an ID (or be told it’s rock if that’s the case!) 1) Tooth: 2) Bone?
  4. Back on the peace today, found a bunch of mammoth tooth frags and whatever this other thing is, and I’m not sure if the frag IS a frag. 1) Mammoth frag? 2) Whatever this is, maybe it’s chert, maybe it’s a fossil?
  5. So went to peace River today, and as always, I come back with ID’s being needed! So a few different things today. 1. Possible piece of tusk? It’s got cross-hatched lines on it which makes me think of Schreger lines. 2. Another thing I thought may be tusk, for the same reason. 3. I’m almost certain this is a mammoth tooth fragment, but I wanted confirmation! 4. Are these hammerhead shark teeth, or lemon? Thanks in advance! 1) Tusk? 2) Also tusk? 3) Mammoth tooth frag? 4) Hammerhe

    Bone Valley Crocodilian Gastrolith?

    So did some fossil hunting yesterday and found what I was told was a Crocodilian Gastrolith. Which while technically just a rock, is still a really cool find. So I wanted to see if anyone else could confirm the ID or not!
  7. Hi all! Went on another expedition to flag ponds in Calvert MD the other day, had probably one of my best hunts so far in the formation. in total I found 112 teeth, 51 shark, 59 ray, 2 bony fish. I yelled in excitement when I found this one in the shell bed, blending into the grays. There's only two things this tooth could belong to and one of them is a shark I have been hunting for years. I am leaning towards Meg in my ID, as the break line seems to go across the middle where the chevron would be, in addition to the profile of the tooth is girthier than the hastalis I h
  8. Some IDs needed for fossils from my hunt yesterday, so any help would be appreciated! 1) Not sure if this is a sea robin skull or something else. 2) I think this is a very worn tooth from something? 3) Preeeeeeeetty sure this is just a rock with some interesting layers - but I’ve found them on occasion and figured I may as well ask: 4) Very thick piece of what I originally thought was sea turtle shell, but due to how thick it is, I’m not sure anymore: Top: Side:
  9. Wanted to see if anyone can ID these chunks of bone I’ve found in the Peace River. They’ve all got somewhat interesting shapes so I figured IDs might be possible! 1) 2) 3) Any help is, as always, appreciated!

    Lake Huron Fossil Finds

    These were all part of my huge haul from Lake Huron and I’m struggling to find ID for them! Sorry there’s a bunch 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15.
  11. Going back through my old finds and upon checking some I realized I wasn’t sure if I had them right. First is a tooth - I had it in my “modern” section, AKA not a fossil - but it feels too heavy to be modern, so I figured I should ask. The second I had as a trace fossil, possibly a trace of a barnacle? But I’m really not sure, part of me wonders if its something else due to the patterns. 1) Tooth from something: 2) Trace Fossil?

    More Peace River IDs needed

    So finally finished sorting my fossils from Saturday, and had a few more pieces I can’t quite identify! 1) So first up is this piece of fossilized bone - it doesn’t burn, and it’s solid, so I do know it’s bone. Not a clue what it’s from: 2) Another bone piece presumably - but it’s got parallel consistent striations on it, which have left me quite unsure: 3) Next up is whatever this is, found a few of these but always forget to ask for an ID: 4) Second to last is this rock,

    Peace River Finds - ID’s needed

    Went hunting at Peace River today - found a bunch of stuff that I’m unsure of what they are. Still very much learning! So any ID’s on the following would be awesome: 1. Starting off with a bone - I’m mostly sure it’s a bone and not actually a fossil, but still no clue what from: 2. Also bone, but this one is definitely fossilized: 3. I’m assuming this a tooth, but I’m not sure if that’s right or what it’s from if so: 4 + 5. Two things I think are osteoderms/scutes, but also not sure what from:
  14. Was digging/sorting through my fossils this morning - had a couple that I hadn’t yet gotten ID’d and wanted to ask about! So first is this tooth I originally thought was Carcharhinus of some kind, but on a close look it’s got no serrations at all, which is making me wonder if it’s a C. Hastalis? Second up is… whatever this is. Fish mouth plate of some kind? One side of it the “bubbles” pop out, the other side they’re craters. And finally, what I originally thought was gator tooth, then thought may have been antler, and I’m now back to thinking tooth but no
  15. Picked up this tooth today in the Peace River and I'm really not sure what herbivore it's from, I'm thinking possibly camel? Any help would be appreciated! Top: Bottom: Sides:

    IDs needed - Peace River, Florida

    So being a new member here, I’ve had a few teeth and other fossils I’m not sure what they’re from - so I figured it was time to post and ask for ID’s! They’re all from the peace River. First up is this, not sure if it’s an antler piece, a gator tooth, or something else: Next are these fish teeth - I know they’re fish teeth but not sure what from: Other fish teeth: These… they might be rocks honestly but I’m not sure: This is another tooth, my initial thought is Hemipristis but I’

    Flag Ponds Weirdys

    Got some weird stuff from the Cliffs, been meaning to get them checked out. first one up i think is a bone fragment of some kind. it passes the tongue test. but someone on the FB group suggested it might be a fragment of a Gomp tooth perhaps? this is a bone fragment, but the porous nature of the middle has me thinking bird perhaps? also, the top edge is rounded and smooth so it looks to be a small diameter long bone. lastly is this piece, Im sure its probably a beaten up snaggletooth, but the cross section has me thinking mammal possibly?
  18. So I took my folks out to West VA to see the Lost river site, had a splendid time of it just picking through the shale, but I found some absolutely mysterious specimens that I could use some help in identifying. This one I had thought was a colonial organism, but it doesnt match the bryzoan or corals ive seen in the area This one I believe is a brachiopod of some sort, any idea the Genus? I picked up this rock and noticed that there was a glabella furrow of a trilobite species in it. I dont know what species it is, all I know is th

    Cretaceous Print?

    Hey y’all! Can anyone help me ID this print? I’m a marine reptile researcher so I’m at the end of my understanding of prints for this. It was found in Bell County, Texas. Thanks so much!

    Big brook mystery fossils ID help

    Hi all, it's me again! for my first expedition of the year, I decided to go to big brook to try my hand collecting there. had quite the adventure, found some neat things. but there are a handful of oddity's that I am unsure. in my research that ive done over the day I have a couple ideas, but any confirmation from experts is always appreciated. first one up is this weird thing. I'm not sure what this is although it's no concretion these ones are also strange, but I have some ideas on a few of them. top two are probably vertebrae fragments, but I have
  23. I’m not exactly sure where it comes from but I found it in paved gravel in association with chert that likely came from the Knox Group in Northeast Alabama.

    Jaw Kem Kem

    Hi! I got this type of jaw from the Kem Kem Beds of Morocco. I was thinking some type of fish? Hope somebody has an idea of what it can be. Regards
