    Dudley UK Crinoids ID

    Hello, I wanted to ask for help identifying these crinoid fossils from Dudley of UK. They are all quite small (UK penny is 2cm across) and I think mostly partials. 1. Just a partial calyx I think, the section around the base where the stem attaches 2. I can't really tell if these are three arms or three stems, and if the former they may not be attached to a calyx. 3. 4. Another small partial loose calyx?

    Mosasaur tooth ID Tylosaur?

    Hello, I came across this morocco mosasaur tooth measuring 5.5 cm and wanted to ask whether it seems like Tylosaur? From what I can tell, it has no durophagous adaptations (so not prognathodon), seems to be straight instead of curved towards the tongue/mouth and lacks facets (so not Mosasaurus), and is very tall with a hook-like appearance due to a curvature straight backwards. It looks too tall to be something like Eremiasaurus, but that's just an amateur guess. If not Tylosaur, what could it be?

    Tooth or Rock?

    Found in a freshwater spring in Florida. I was skeptical at first but after looking at it for a while I’m curious.

    Zigzag 'toothed' oyster

    Hi everyone, Collected this fossil a while ago in or around Cap Gris-Nez, France, and was curious about what it exactly it is. it's about 8.5 cm. Thanks in advance.
  6. Hi everyone! I'm new to fossil hunting and I found a few interesting rocks underneath Sea Cliff Bridge near Wollongong in Australia. There was a lot of coal in the area for context. I will attach some photos of the rocks I found, I'm particularly interested in the small white (quartz??) lines intersecting the black part of the stone. Any help would be hugely appreciated! Thanks

    Cretaceous Jaw Section

    Hi there everyone! I recently came across this beautiful jaw section earlier and I was wondering if there was anyone who could help me identify what animal it’s from. The listing states that it was found in Powder River County, Montana, and is listed as a “reptile jaw”. At first glance through my untrained eye I believed it to be crocodilian in nature. But after a little research I now think it could be Taiidae (lizard). Im still very new to this and I could obviously be entirely wrong so I’d greatly appreciate your guys’ feedback. Thank you guys
  10. Hello everybody! Found that near kids sandbox in Prague, Czech Republic, in the city center. Sand and rocks from there are probably brought from some other area. But in this park, only few hundred meters from there some Trilobite fossils can be found. It was just laying on the ground. I think it can be a rock, but its very tooth looking rock. I am no expert in those things. It seems like there is a root. It's exactly 2cm from top to bottom. I can't find any shark tooth looking like that. Other animal? I tried my best in making those photos. But i
  11. Hello fellow fossil fans, In this post I have a piece of bone I have found on zandmotor a few months ago. I know bone fragments are hard to ID. However I hope that perhaps because of its distinctive shape any of you could give me an idea of what it could be. thanks in advance!

    Help me ID a few items, please :)

    Hi again! I have a few pieces I need help with. Some of them I'm sure they are fossils, other not so much. All of them found in Maryland and Virginia (US) by the water. Thank you so much beforehand!!! PD - Sorry about my 'useless' coin but I don't have a printer or a measuring tape. The coin is 1 inch / 2.5 cm 1 - maybe some skin? 2 - bone, any ideas of what it might be? 3 - This one I don't know whether it is a fossil or not. 4 - I think this is just a fun

    Any ideas?

    I found it around 100 yards from the beach in a forest in mid Wales I’m not really sure what it is but it would be ingesting to know if anyone has any ideas

    Bone Valley Find

    I’m currently at a pay site, collecting Bone Valley fossils. An individual next to me found this bone fragment, can someone identify what it is? It looks familiar, but what it is is not coming to mind right now. @Shellseeker

    Big Brook NJ find.

    Hope you folks are having a great summer so far. I recently was able to find some time to drive up to Jersey and wade through Big Brook and Ramanessin. Had a blast and found a few small teeh. Some in decent condition but nothing bigger than an inch or two. One of the few reasons ive been having trouble figuring this specific tooth out. Im assuming its a small if not piece of a mosasaur tooth, or a family member. Any help would be appreciated, and happy hunting!

    Green River Formation Larva?

    Hello all, Need help ID this insect larva from the Eocene Green River Formation of Colorado. It's 1.5cm long, about 2cm if outstretched. As far as I can tell it has a series of large, bulbous protrusions spiraling along the length of its body, and one end has a sharp taper/point, though I'm not sure if that's the head or tail end. It has a very distinctive look so I feel like it would be recognizable if it's something that's been described before. Any help appreciated, thanks.
  17. Anyone help id what this is? A young boy found it at Sunrise Beach, Missouri in the Ozarks.

    Teeth, molars and trilobites

    Hello again. I have acquired some new specimens to expand my "collection" and I would like you to help me corroborate the identifications of these fossils. I have no idea what species the trilobite corresponds to, I only know that it is from Morocco. According to the seller, the tooth was collected north of Florida, in a Pleistocene stratum and corresponds to a Tapirus veroensis. Likewise, the "crocodile" tooth was collected in the Bone Valley Area, Florida, within the Pliocene substratum. The shark tooth was identified as belonging to "megalodon".

    Ammonite help

    Hey all, I picked up these 2 ammonites too cheap to leave but the seller had no provenance. Ammonites and their genera / species are not something I know much about but a little research suggests they might be from Madagascar Can anyone tap in to their ammonite knowledge banks and help me out a bit? The darker one has an obvious little restoration work on the shell The other has a repair but overall they seem like really nice specimens Scale - CM

    Baby Mammoth Tooth?

    Hi there everyone! I thought I would ask for some help in properly identifying this specimen that I recently acquired. This specimen is said to be a baby/juvenile M. Columbi tooth found in North Florida. The specimen is very obviously worn and has pink patches due to algae buildup. I’ve included several photos below: Front, Right, Left, Bottom, Bottom, Top (Chewing surface), Top (Chewing surface). I’m fairly certain this is a mammoth tooth but I’d greatly appreciate a positive ID since I can’t find much information about specimens like this online. My
  21. Hi all, I recently acquired this Theropod indet. tooth speculating it might be a Dromaeosaurus albertensis. It was found in the Judith River Fm., is 0.72 inch long and serration count over 5mm is 20 mesial and 18 distal. It is a very stout tooth, so might as well be a Tyrannosaurid. It has a twist in the mesial carina and though denticles are very close in width, mesial ones are shorter, and the shape of denticles does not look classic Tyrannosaurid to me. I would like hear your opinions please.

    Is it a bone fossil?

    I found this in my black gravel driveway in Dallas. It stuck out because it’s isn’t black. I’m guessing it was brought in from somewhere else, either in my driveway gravel, from the dirt below, or possible from sediment in old concrete. We’ve had a lot of rain lately, so it was probably uncovered from the rain. It is about 2” or 5cm long, about 3/4-1” or 2-2.5cm diameter, kind of wavy-cylindrical. It has a single, prominent hole on each end, kind of like a bead. It is heavy - I first thought it was metal. It has a sandstone-like texture. It looks finely porous, with tiny holes maybe, and some

    Trip to Westmoreland State Park, VA

    Last weekend I went on a camping trip to Westmoreland State Park in Virginia, somewhere I had fossil hunted previously and found some cool bones like a dolphin vert. This time, I found several bones that I believe might be able to be identified. If anyone can help, it would be much appreciated. Thanks! All of the finds: A piece of whale bone, id'd through size: Rey Teeth: Continued in the next post due to upload issues
