    Fossils Or Rocks? In Need Of Help

    I'm new at this, but I've found a few things that caught my eye while hiking. I have no idea if these are fossils or just rocks. All of these are creek bed finds coming from eastern Kentucky. I'm trying to learn as I go, so any help at all would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Help Needed On Identification

    Hello there guys, I recently visited a cave up in the Mediterranean mountains with a group of fellow fossil hunters, among the fossilized water droplets covering the floor I found this strange specimen, I have found many fossils during my fossil hunting lifetime but I am not very good at identifying them. I'd really appreciate any help on what this is, to me it looks like anything from a fossilized skull to a fossilized sapling. I doubt it is a sapling though seeing as I found it in a cave. Thank you

    Mysterious Dinosaur Tooth

    So, a couple of days ago i bought this fossil dinosaur tooth. The information i got was the following: - It is a real fossil dinosaur tooth - It was found in Morocco - It is 80 million years old By looking at it, it is about 1,2 cm long (i do not have anything to measure it with right now). Judging from what i know about moroccoan cretaceous fauna i´d say it´s a dromaeosaurid, but i am not sure. It could be a mosasaur or shark tooth, but that would contradict the information i got (i do not know if it´s real information though). In the photo i´m providing i realise that it looks like plast
  7. I was wondering if anyone knows of any great locations in Scarborough to look for fossils that are easily accessible by foot. The reason I ask is I am semi-disabled and requires a cane for walking, meaning very steep hills are out the question for me until Scarborough Parks a Rec provide a shuttle to and from the Bluffs for those that want to go there but can not. I have done good so far in my fossil hunting and would love to explore new areas. I truly love fossil hunting and its quickly become a passion for me to explore a long lost world of what was to better understand it and share part of
  8. My wife and I "hunted" at a few locations in Ohio today. We found a few enrolled flexis but are both wondering if anyone could ID these three fossils? We are still fairly new to rock hounding and appreciate any help. The first three photos are of a fossil I found at a road cut on US RT 42 near Waynesville, Ohio (near Cincinnati). The fourth photo is of a fossil I found at Caesars Creek spillway The fossil in the fifth picture was found at the same roadcut in Waynesville.
  9. Please help me figure out what this is! My Dad found it near his work about a year ago. It looks like it could be made out of road pavement or some kind of rock. It appears to have two slanted slits for eyes, two inward-curved ears, and what kind of looks like a spine on the back of it. I've attached photos, please help!
  10. I posted these in the 'gallery' area, but haven't got many views so I thought I'd try them in here. I don't know if pics tell the full story, but I'm hoping maybe someone has found them before and knows what they are. To my 'rookie' eye, they appear to be teeth because of the unique striations. I thought they may be petrified wood at first, but I've found a lot of that now and no longer think it is so I'm now leaning towards teeth. I'm sorry, I haven't figured out yet how to post the pics in here since I posted the gallery from a different computer. Please check out the album through th
  11. I am new in Milwaukee and I wanted to know if I would be able to find any fossils here. I know there should be fossils in the area from the Devonian and Silurian eras but I heard that glacial activity has made fossils scarce here. Is it conceivable that I could find fossils if I searched the banks of the Milwaukee River or went to the beach? Any help would be very much appreciated

    Giant Clam/ Oyster Or Nothing?

    OK, Just joined up because I recently found something on a trip to the desert that has me scratching my head. The area was at one time an ancient sea which leads me to think it could be a clam or oyster but any input would be greatly appreciated as to just what this thing is.. (Can't get pics to upload because file is too big) Anyone that can help, let me know and I can send you pics. Thanks!

    Is This A Fossil Or A Rock?

    Is This Just A Cow Vertebra ?

    I found this yesterday along a river in NW Missouri. I know that river locations can make fossilization/petrification occur faster. I am on the fence about this one. Not sure how old it is. My dad says it looks like a cow vertebra, which I think is possible since the river is on farm land. What do you think it is? Any help is appreciated! Thank you! http://photobucket.com/koscojo P.S. Don't be angry I linked the pictures because I tried to attach them, but they were too large. Sorry.
