    Wondering what this is

    I am a rock lover I will admit I don't know a lot about identifying fossils but I think that's what this is. Can anyone tell me what it is? I put it on the big burner of the stove for size reference.
  2. Hi! Basically the title! Going on a hunt soon and was wondering where along the Potomac I should go to hunt? Any parks, etc? thanks!

    help with vert ID?

  4. Hi friends I was wondering if Carroll county maryland can have fossils? Is there any way I could find fossils in a creek near my house? I border Howard so southern Carroll county.
  5. Hello fellow paleontology nerds, I would like to get some help coming up with ideas for a paleontology project. I am learning in a special class in school where we learn electronics, coding and biology. I am now in 11th grade and we are starting to work on our finale project. The project needs to include electronics and coding and it also has to be a solution to some kind of a problem in the world. We have a bunch of teachers to help us, a ton of electronic parts(sensors,resistors,cables, whatever we want as long as it's not too expensive) , 3D printers to use and over a year to w
  6. I'm hoping someone can help me troubleshoot my CP 9361 air scribe. I'm copying my same post from Facebook in hopes to get more visibility. The main issue is that once the stylus touches rock, the stylus jams, or simply stops working. When changing the dial for air from 0 to 5, settings 0-3 blow out little to no air. Setting 4 blows out much air. Setting 5 blows out little to no air. If I turn the dial slowly, sometimes the stylus will engage Sometimes I have to bang the casing on something (either the palm of my hand or the leg of a table) to get it to st

    Hiya everyone. I recently purchased this trilo. I’m in the UK. Any help would be great. My best guess at the moment for locality is maybe Malvern worcs.

    Probably a fossil?

    I have this probable fossil that my mother gave me. Is it indeed fossil and of so what is it exactly and how old?

    Preserving this

    I’ve got multiple pieces of wood, some with original bark, as peat with remenants of stuff in, that is all around 4,500-6,000 years old from an ancient forest, but now that it’s come out of the sea will it just rot like normal? What would be the best way to preserve it?
  10. I live in North Carolina, and have been trying to find a good reliable spot other than gmr for a few years now. I would like any help, any spots, anything will help, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia or Florida, any spot that it good and reliable I would love to know about it.
  11. Our mammoth tusk fell off its pedestal and broke apart. It’s a complex break, so I don’t feel confident trying to do it myself. Is there a reputable fossil repair shop I can hire to fix it?

    Fossil horn?

    Any ideas what this could be? Not sure where it was found as a bunch of fossils were chucked out of a university department in the 70s and this is one of them, some fossilised horn or a coral?
  13. Lewis_

    Is it what I think it is?

    There was big chunks of peat washing up on the beach that I go to and I looked it up and it’s remnant’s of an ancient forest floor? There was land out there a few thousand years ago and a mile or so down the coast ancient tree stumps show from under the sand every once in awhile so does this peat actually contain plant matter from thousands of years ago?

    Found at Holden Beach. Hoping it was a very with coral! Help appreciated!
  15. I went to St Leon Indiana, and I had a pretty good haul!!! Spent the day out there I have several fossils that are from the Ordovician time period and they’re in limestone, limestone shale. Does anyone have any good tips on washing them? Do you prefer dry? Just with a brush? What about any rusted stuff, do you use oxalic oxide? What about algae? Do you prefer water? Soap and water? Hydrogen peroxide? I’m afraid and don’t want to ruin any. Thank you! Jessica

    New Collection Needs Identifying

    hi all. Im new and I've happened across a collection I need help identifying
  20. Hi there everyone. I would really appreciate your skills/opinions about if my little ''treasure'' is actually a coprolite or not. I have always believed it to be, just because it looks like a poo with something in it to me. I have forgotten where i found it, but most likely it was in Newcastle, NSW, Australia. It is ovalish in shape and appears to have a ''skin' wrapped around some sort of internal content. As I know zero about fossils, your time and expertise is gratefully appreciated. Looking forward to hearing from someone with excitement and thanks. Photos hopefully attached! Many ch

    Fossil ID - NSW, Australia

    Hi I would like some help identifying this PC any idears people found in maquarie river Bathurst 2795 NSW Australia
  22. I have a couple places I have been searching. One in a Mangrove Forest, the others in Construction yards. I am finding some nicely colored Sharks teeth, and one was so encrusted with junk it took hours with several types of sand paper to polish. The very dark brown complete one on the bottom left. It is really a beautiful tooth, but I need to polish it further to get the Enamel a bit less opaque. Any methods for polishing by hand? There are other assorted pieces as well, some nice small black teeth from construction sites, the brown and orange are from the Tannins in the M

    Unknown Bone

    I found this bone in a creek in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. I have asked some hunters and farmers what it could be but nobody seems to know. It appears old but modern. There looks to be a suture mark or perhaps an old fracture or some pathology. I would appreciate any insight into what bone this may be. Or where I might look to find something to compare? Thank you.
  25. Hi, it would be nice if I could get some opinions on this grallator footprint I purchased as I don’t know anything about this kind of stuff and how to spot if it’s fake, and another thing I’m confused about, if u flip it over there’s another footprint on the other side but it doesn’t match with the over one?
