    Vertebrae? What is it!?

    I found these in central KY, dry creek bed areas. I think they may be vertebraes. But I just don’t know… and if so, what kind? Shark? Dino? I have one at least 4 times as big as this one as well! Whale? I’ll add it in another post. Any ideas?
  2. I am right now out in the field, attempting to extract a string of articulated reptile vertebrae in the lower Atco. It is in a soft marl bed just a few feet above the basal Atco. There seems to be articulated ribs associated with the specimen, and so far I have uncovered 14 verts. 9 of them were lose of the surface and bagged in ziplocks, but now I am trying to get the rest out. If anyone has any advice, I need it! The specimen also has articulated ribs. I want to get this thing home tonight, and not destroyed. This is is my first time attempting to extract vertebrae, and I want to
  3. Hi Everyone, Hoping to have some help finding out what these are (appreciate that some these will probably just be some random rock or stone). First picture is just the results from a couple of times going around the rocks or beach at the Warren, Folkestone which I don’t think is terrible for not really knowing what we are doing! The up close ones i’m not entirely sure what they are if anything at all! Also for reference thats a 2p coin don’t think that its obvious to see. any thing else can help you help me let me know and tha

    Help! Fossil prep!

    So I have this crinoid I wanted to prep with my new vaniman, but I am not skilled enough for this prep. I've done a couple crinoid calyx's and some with the arms, but this one has some fine detail showing through and I am worried I will destroy it. If there is anyone on here that I could turn to for help on this or any suggestions as to who to take it to would be phenomenal. The whole column wraps around the matrix. There are a few spots where the pinnules are showing. I have a terrible camera so I can only show a photo of the largest section showing. I'm not sure what s

    Fossil or Manmade?

    Hello! I found this at a cretaceous seabed which also has heavy foot traffic. The "white" circles look to have an opalescent sheen much like slight mother-of-pearl, but I'm not entirely convinced whether or not itv is Fossil or man-made. Any ideas? It really is tiny. (ps please excuse my horrible nail polish and the pants overwintering indoors in the background)
  6. Hello everyone! I have a couple of coral samples here that I can't really id... maybe some of you have an idea? one seems to be a sample of Pocilloporidae and the other one resembles the honey comb corals... The sample blocks the corals were found in were dated MIS11 (SL43 2) and Pleistocene (ST73 2), but the corals themselves haven't been dated yet. SL43 2 average calice diameter 1,25 mm ST73 2 calice diameter around 0,8 mm And if anyone is interested in discussing a couple of other samples, that would be great! Either way, thank you for your hel

    Calvert County Fossils

    Hi everyone! I went to Flagponds in Calvert County MD a few weeks ago and came back with my biggest *actual* fossil haul so far (I posted here my first time with about 50 barnacle pieces)! I know there are a few ray plate fragments in here, and I've included what I think are bone pieces although I'm not entirely sure. Anyway, I'm having a lot of trouble identifying my shark's teeth, so any help with this would be greatly appreciated! I'll post numbered photos of my finds with this. If anyone needs a zoomed in, clearer or different angle pic I'm happy to provide more. (Advance apologies for the
  9. Hello. I am new around here so I hope this is the place to put this. I am looking for ways to ID everything that we have gathered on a state field trip for my son's 4-H project. I have the booklet that one of the state project leaders put together that lists what is supposed to be found where but that is all. It does have some pictures in the back but they are mostly line drawing type pictures in black and white so they are are tell what stuff is. Kansas does have a website that they have some pictures on but some times it isn't the greatest to use. I also have so many questions that I am not
  10. I found this tyrannosaurus Caudal Vertebrae online and the website says it has a little restoration and claims it's a tyrannosaurus fossil so what do you all think?
  11. Hi Everyone, This is a beach-find from Haida Gwaii, Canada. I realize it’s not a fossil, but perhaps because someone has already said it’s most likely bone- I was looking for more help to narrow (or marrow!) it down. Approx 20cmx20cm Thank you!! I appreciate your input.

    Bone ID

    This is a piece of fossilized bone I bought over the summer. It was sold as being from a centrosaurus. I understand that a perfect ID is impossible, but I was wondering if any one had an idea of what type of dinosaur it could be from, if it even is dinosaur. I was also hoping to find out what type of bone it is. It had an interesting shape to it so I was hoping if nothing else, where in the skeleton it could have been from. It says it’s from the Judith River formation, and the only locality given is eastern Montana. Again I don’t think it’s possible to tell exactly what it’s from, I was just h

    Trilobite IDs Please!

    The first two I have no idea about where they come from but the third I found in gravel from a creek bed in southeast Nebraska (probably glacial till) and I believe is a pygidum topotype, but could be wrong, the last I found in a shale gravel pit near Mohawk NY in Herkamer county (I'm not familiar with the area's geology maybe someone from that area can help?) Thanks in advance!
