  2. I am no expert in fossil hunting, its just a hobby but while I was in Big Brook, New Jersey (a stream where many people go to find shark teeth and such), I was downstream and after sifting through my pan I came across this fossil. At the time I didnt even know it was a fossil i just thought it was a cool looking rock (im 17 btw). Now looking back at it I feel like it is a fish head, but I have no idea honestly. Could somebody tell me if this is a random rock or a fish head? I can attach several images of it down here. Thanks!

    What are these to you?

    I found this petrified snake/reptile head in North Carolina. I have this one and many others from my back yard. Including a petrified giant, and fingers with fingernails, perfectly preserved.. I know it's a petrified reptile from the petrification of 40 years of saltwater from the great flood. It's species is not in the internet anywhere that I can find, other than other petrified snakes, it's a one of a kind. I'm thinking it's extinct. It's very prominent for snake features and certainly a rock now. What does anyone here think? And I have many more like it. There are these and many others..
  4. discovered this in SW MO in a heavily timbered area buried roughly 10” deep. It measures 9 1/2” in length. If someone has some thoughts of what it could be I would love to hear your ideas.
  5. 4 looks like a part line of teeth in upper jaw., herbivore ....some structure above that yet to come out of matrix ..any ideas...will post more

    Funky shaped agate or?

    I live in Richmond, Virginia and recently discovered a bounty of agates in my back yard. Here are pictures of one I found yesterday that is different from all the others. There is still some dirt/mud from the garden in the crevices. I stopped cleaning it after seeing bits of druzy quartz along a seam in the agate and wondered if it could possibly be a fossilized head of some sort? I looks like it spent some time tumbling in a creek or something of that nature (most of the other agates are rounded Patuxent stone types). Also, I apologize for not including a metric ruler, but I've included a pic

    Stone cold shark?!?

    Hyachi!! What have I found?? I thought a rock that somewhat resembled the head and mouth of a shark. Thought that was kinda meat. So I washed it off a bit. And studied the rock awhile longer.

    Please help identify

    Hello all, i am seeking help in identifying what this is, I apologize for not having a tape for size to scale but it’s a little bigger than a bowling ball, it was found in woods at Little Rock, Arkansas near a running creek , seems to be mainly sandstone composition and the head shaped portion fits perfectly in the base, the bottom of the head piece looks like brains, thanks for any input.

    Please help... is this what I think?

    i found this in the creek that my yard goes into(dallas, TX. Prairie Creek) and been cleaning this for 2+ years with plastic bristle brushes because it looks familiar and the colors and textures keep coming also some black hairlike protrusions hear and there. This picture needs to be left side down... i will try for a better photo. the picture.
  10. Myrtle Beach, 2022 no idea what this is. When I flip it over the concave on the other side reminds me of some neurocranium pieces I have seen. But the top isn’t familiar to me at all. I might even think tooth but doesn’t quite have the sheen of enamel. Thank you!

    Dino head??

    Hello to all of you, I am new to this community. To to make the story short, I live in Lebanon (on the east mediterranian sea) and found few interesting stones in my family summer house. The story behind them is that my grand father found them somewhere near Mount Lebanon +- 1000m of altitude some 50 years ago. To me they really look like a dino's head, at least half of it (the other half probably having decomposed). Also note the shell like fossils that are incrusted on it and the tooth sockets. What do you experts think? Any clue on the species? It w

    Turtle Head ?

    I found this here in Las Vegas, it looks to be a turtle head. I'm using a Chromebook for the pictures and unfortunately I don't have any other options to take pictures right now but there is faint yellow line surrounding the gums going around the eye. the same yellowish color appears around a kidney shape near the back of the head and seems to be in the same area the otic chamber is on turtles. on one side of the head it appears to have teeth marks which I have found on other "turtle" pieces in this same area. I've also found what appear to be turtle or reptilian eggs. on one I sanded the "eg

    Head fossil or just a rock?

  15. What is this inclusion in this amber? It appears to be some sort of head, but I don’t know what it is
  16. Ok, so I'm sure I annoyed many with my last "fish" post. But I am wondering if I found an armored head plate? I'm not going to argue this time... As it doesn't really get me anywhere and I really want to continue to get responses to my questions. I also found this of sorts and I don't know if the brown rocks are bone or just brown rocks. They do not appear to be chert, and they do have some holes in them but they may just be rocks. In middle Tennessee, where these were retrieved, we have driveways that look like this. And no, I did not lick them and I will not lick them ...
  17. Hey guys! I have found this great looking Placoderm head fossil and would love to hear what you think. Is it real? Thanks!

    Dinosaur skull?

    Hi guys, my dad found this and says it's a fossilized dinosaur head embedded in this rock, my family and friends are doubtful. He found this a few days ago and had me convinced enough to dig it up. I am unsure whether or not this is just a cool looking rock that happens to look like a dinosaur head, or if it is actually a fossilized head embedded in this rock. Found in Munster Ireland, you can make out what seems to be a eye socket, mouth, and just has the general shape of what you would expect a dinosaur head look like on one side. The other side is all rock and on the bot

    Turtle Head Fossil

    This was found near a low creek bed in South-West Montana.
  20. Got to work on these guys because some of these creatures were my inspiration of what they would have looked like in color and others are at an art show. Wonder what animals will you like to see when its unleashed before your very eyes?
  21. Visero

    any info would be wonderful!

    This was recovered near a gold mine in western Montana. I have absolutely no idea what it is. any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Fossil Or Funky Stone?

    Is this a trilobite head?

    Found this near Utica, is it a trilobite head? The area has tons of triarthrus heads and nautiloids, but nothing as big as this. Unfortunately this is the best photo I can get at the moment as I stupidly misplaced the possible head. Also included is a fossilized sea shell, if anyone knows what species it belongs to that'd be great.

    New find in missouri

    Howdy everyone! I'm from Southern Missouri and walk the creek beds all the time in search of arrowheads and more. When I was a kid 10 years ago I found this dinosaur head around rockbridge Missouri on our property. I finally wanted to find out what it belong to as only one Dinosaur has ever been identified in missouri?. Thank you everyone!
