    What is this?

    I am a contractor and found this in 2004 in Austin, TX on an empty house lot. Probably boring to yall but was just curious as to what it was. I'm thinking a snail but would like to know the real name of it as I have no knowledge about this kind of thing. Currently being used as a paper weight. The dimensions are 168mm wide 127mm deep 99mm tall. 2.63 kg Thank you for your help! Mark

    A syringopora (coral)?

    Dear forum members, Here are some items that I found on an island close to Vodice, Croatia, Europe. The location was ca. 30 meters from the adriatic sea at a hight of ca. 8 meters above sea level. The items were at the bottom of a building site for a house. They were about 2 meters below ground level, i.e. 6 meters above sea level. Here are two pictures of an item which looks a bit like a coral. The closest match I found on the internet was the picture depicted on the right hand side of https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Syringopora There was an ab

    Limpet looking fossil

    Hello everyone, requesting help with a fossil ID. New member and very new to fossils, daughter has shown lots of interest in fossils and wants to be a paleontologist for about a year. I try and continue to encourage it and we go to different creek beds here in Kentucky along the Tennessee boarder. We typically find lots of brachiopods but nothing like these. I think it looks like limpets, but I can’t find anything similar to it online. The University of Kentucky website had some similar sketches of horn coral, but I am not sure. Any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    help ID fossil

    does anyone know what this is?
  15. Found a few fossils at the Guana South Beach in Ponte Vedra, need help identifying. The first one looks like a vertebra of some kind and the second looks like maybe a jaw bone with individual teeth holes. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
  16. I found this bone today in a stream bed known to be cretaceous. At first I thought it was modern, but it felt too heavy to just be bone, so I took it home. I bleached it for a couple of hours to make it safe to touch because I couldn't imagine it wasn't modern. Then I cleaned it with dish soap and a toothbrush. It rings when tapped against a counter or when tapped with a rock. No dull thud. We held a butane lighter to it for several seconds. It made a black scorch mark, but there was no odor, so I think the collagen is gone. Does it look old to you? Any ideas about what it might be?
  17. Hi, I found this amongst rocks near the water at Lyme Regis beach in 2004. I assumed icthyosaurus but the curvature seems extreme for one. So if anyone can shed light on what this is, would be most appreciated as it's my most precious and largest creature find. Thanks in advance.
  18. A few bones I found in big brook I'm assuming deer raccoon but I just wanted to make sure and if any help how you can I'd if a bone is old or not thanks. I can add more pics if needed thanks for your help

    A Few More Jordan Finds

    I found this in one of the plowed fields here in Garfield county Mountana. I do not know what species it is. The ranch owner has hundreds of them and a lot of them are perfect. I have also found a lot of gastropods. There is a large cliff a couple of hundred feet behind my house and it is packed with them. There are about six layers that contain shells. The layers vary in thickness from a few inches to about six feet. Most of the layers are fine sand and one that is mixed with hard chunks of sandstone. The last photo is a part of the layer with the chunks in it. I do not know what formation an
