    Possible FossiI iD help :)

    So I have 3 peices Ive had for along time. Something about them just gave me a fossil feeling. I live near the Oregon coast and that is where I found them. Here are some good clear pictures of my 3 findings. Could someone tell me if they just rocks or actually something cool? Thanks guys!
  2. Help! I am an art student who knows nothing about paleontology but I love it and am really curious about this fossil I found a few years ago. It was found at Hoover Dam. An aspiring paleontology student told me that it resembled the interambulacral plates of a sea urchin. Can anyone help identify it? Thanks!
  3. My friend found this in a creek bottom here in central Iowa. He thinks it might be a petrified pearl inside a half oyester. Any thoughts? Maybe the muscle?
  4. Hi, new here and looking for some help please. This was found at Aust Cliff bone beds, sorry no scale but its close to 40mm wide at the base. Can anyone help identify what it is please? Thanks, Chris
  5. Hi, I am not an expert, so I decided to ask for help in this forum. My Dream is to buy real fossils so I found a website with some interesting fossils, a keichosaurus and three Megalodon teeth. Can you help me to recognise if they are real fossils or not? thank you very much!

    The Heck am I Doing...?

    I was given this piece by a friend who found it in either Union County or Madison County, Iowa. Gut instinct tells me it might be a Megalodon tooth, but its hard telling not knowing. I am very new to prepping fossils myself, but fortunate enough to have at the least a few of the required tools such as a Chicago pneumatic air scribe, a dremel, and an airbrush sandblaster with aluminum oxide. I have attempted to remove parts of the outer layer covered in rust and shell fragments but have pumped the brakes since I really have no idea if the tooth, assuming thats what it is, will be the same color
  7. Hi, I would like to buy this fossil, but I don’t know if it is a real fossil because I am not expert, it is a spinosaurus claw. can you please help me ? thank you very much
  8. 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
  9. Hi, I would like to buy this skull of mosasaurus, but I am not sure that it is a real fossil… could you help me please? thank you very much
  10. Its to my understanding that many Megalodon teeth come with Unfortunate modifications, in order to artificially boost price. My question on thus particular tooth is, does the root look reconstructed, or does it appear to be unmodified? I'll post more pictures if everything checks out.
  11. Hello! I'm pretty new to fossil hunting and I've been able to ID a few specimens but I'm having trouble with these. The ones here are from a couple trips to Big Brook in NJ. I tried my best to take good photos (when will smartphones come with a macro lens??). 1 looks like it could be a tooth or just a rock 2 seems to be porus (I did the tounge test) 3 looks like a jaw or just a rock 4 seems like it could maybe part of a turtle shell? 5 is definitely a vertebra, but I'm not sure from what 7 seem to be teeth or claws 8 is definitely a tooth but im not sure fro

    Brachauchenius tooth?

    I'm thinking of buying this tooth but I'm not sure what it is. it was described as a mosasaur tooth but the grooves say otherwise. It looks like a brachauchenius to me but I'm not sure.
  13. Hello, I found this fossil in South Central Kansas, 20 miles north of Oklahoma border. A pond was dredged and this was found on a sand pile. Could someone please help me identify it?
  14. My daughter is very interested in fossils and has several my dad sent to her. She would like help identifying this particular large rock that appears to have lots of fossils in it.

    Any ideas?

    Does anyone have any ideas if this is actually a fossil and what it could be? I found it in west Wales by the sea, and I've found fossils very similar to what ever composition this is like a kind of gritty, sandy, delicate rock with tiny crinoid. Bits in it and stuff like that, this one doesn’t have any signs of crinoid, but it has a weird black lump sticking out and something white so this is a fossil?
  16. Hello everyone, I'm looking for a professor in this field or someone with any sufficient knowledge in the matter of question, what can we obtain from looking at a tooth of an animal? The purpose of the question is to learn and design an Image processing algorithm that shall do the work for non-experts who would find a tooth of a fossil. So far, I've come to know it is easy to determine if the animal is carnivorous or herbivorous. But I don't know how to do it myself yet. Any help?

    Strange bone/coral from Costa Rica

    I found this oddity while walking along Bandera Beach in Costa Rica. The beach is visited by sea turtle, crocodiles, sting rays, humpback whales and other fishes and sharks. The beach is on the Pacific Ocean relatively close to the equator. It is shaped like a shark tooth but I doubt that it is due to the porous nature and large size. The shape doesn’t remind me of coral, but it could be. It seems to me like a bone. There is a small protuberance that soft tissue could attach to. I was thinking turtle or crocodile but I reviewed images of their skeletons and didn’t see a match. Any ideas?

    Animal Or human ?

    Crossing the Guadalupe River ( a Texas State Park) today when one of my dogs picked this bone up out of tree ramble/debris in the water. I thought it was very interesting, so I snapped a video and set it down on a boulder. I had plan to pick it up on my way back out. But I forgot all about it and took a different route back to my car. I am home now, going through my pictures and ran across the video. As you may imagine I’m really worried it might be a human bone, . Can y’all help me out with what you believe the bone to be. Human or animal. for reference I am 5’5”
