    Is this a Fossil?

    So i found this in denmark, i was working on a site in copenhagen, and about 150 cm - 200 cm deep down in the ground i found this. is this a fossil ?
  5. 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.

    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

    Can anyone help?

    Found this on the beach in Essex, UK. Can anyone help with IF? No idea at all!

    What is this

    I was on the Oregon coast near Newport and found this really odd looking rock. I've scoured the internet and have seen nothing like it. Even the Google image search feature came up with nothing. Help!!!
  11. Hello everyone, I am your member since yesterday and this is my second post. I wonder if you can help me with identification? I think these are the shells of some molluscs.. I live in Dubrovnik, Croatia and our rocks are extremely rich in these fossils, but I don't know which ones they are? Our rocks here are mostly white limestones of Cretaceous age, and as far as I've seen online, the rudists, which are abundant here, don't have a two-part shell, like this creature? It seems so to me. Thanks everyone in advance ! And what do you think, should I try to dissolve them
  12. Hello, this is my first post here on The Fossil Forum. I recently went fossil hunting in the Glen Rose formation near Canyon Lake, looking for echinoids and other invertebrates. I did end up finding a few and tried to identify them myself, but I would appreciate confirmation from somebody more experienced than me. Is the fossil in the images above Heteraster obliquatus? I also found an echinoid that looks to me like Paracidaris texanus. This specimen has foraminifera tests and other bits of limestone still a

    Ammonite from Madirovalo, Madagascar

    Hello! I got this ammonite fossil from Madirovalo, Madagascar. Cretaceous. That's all the info I got. Does anyone know possibly what species it is or if it's Lower Cretaceous or Upper Cretaceous? Regards.
  14. hi, i went walking in the north east of england and found this, it looked to be a fish jaw? i’m new to fossil collecting and finding as a hobby and i could be completely wrong but if anyone knows anything could you let me know? thanks it was found in a beck/stream, not directly on a coastline. could this be a fish jaw? or small animal jaw?
  15. I was told this was a type of Protomedusas from Jin Jia . I’m not super well versed in Precambrian biota but I have not been able to find any info about this anywhere. I thought it was a crinoid attachment point at first but that also doesn’t look correct. Any help would be greatly appreciated. The slab is about 2 inches total.

    Help identifying strange fossil

    Found this strange fossil in a creek in Austin Texas. It’s been sitting around for a while, I’ve tried to look it up but I have had no luck. Im hoping someone more knowledgeable can help me out. The photo of the second fossil is included because of the strange engraving on it. It appears to be almost a swirl but I have no idea what might have caused it.
  17. So, about 4-5 years back I was at Aurora NC and they have a fossil dig there that is made up of gravel and dirt from a phosphate mine that regularly finds huge megladon teeth and other ocean fossils. When I found it, there were two men who were helping me identify sharks teeth and other fossils... As soon as he saw it he asked if he could hold it and then said he was jealous and he had seen nothing like that before... Now, 4-5 years later, I had it sitting in a glass frame and I looked at it one day and went, "what the heck are you". Then I asked about it on a general thread section on an aqua

    Montana Mystery Fossil

    Hello from Louisiana! I am requesting help identifying a couple of fossils that were found in Montana. They were spotted while exploring the area with binoculars. The fossils were protruding out of the ground near an area with substantial erosion. Any ideas or suggestions as to what these two are?

    What dinosaur could this be from?

    Here are some images of what I recently found near Makoshika state park(around 5miles east of the park) - MT, Hell Creek formation. I suspect it is a theropod, but I am unsure and would love to hear some thoughts.
  21. Need help identifying these. Found all of them in or directly around the same shale pile in a creek bank in Logan ,WV. Only About 2.5 hours of looking and there’s still plenty I haven’t gotten to yet! I’d definitely love to know if I have any rare finds so far!
