    Unknown Fossil from Italy

    My Professor found this fossil in Italy (Southern Appennines). Is there anyone who can help with the identification?

    Found on a beach

    Hi, sorry if this is off topic, but I've found these "bones" on a beach in Italy yesterday. Do you know what it may be? They don't feel like strange pieces of wood

    Is this ammolite?

    Hello. I was wondering if this was ammolite. I'm assuming that if it is, it would be from Canada. I plan on applying paraloid to it to bring out the shine it has.

    (shark?) Tooth

    Some kind of tiny shark-like tooth. Found on Central Oregon Coast in a chunk of mudstone or similar.

    Something with feelers. ID please.

    Hi I have another nice one to identify. site is Achanarras Quarry shotland. (devonian era) it is 5 cm long and has what looks like feelers. does anybody have an idea?
  6. Hello all, My posts have become infrequent as I have moved back from the UAE to my home country. However, I still have a lot of specimens that I would like to id, like these crabs! I found them in Al Ain, close to Jebel Hafeet. I think they come from either the Miocene, or Eocene, as the region produces a lot of nummulite fossils. I think that all of these crabs are from the same species (mostly because of the two points present on either side of each of their carapaces.) Here is the smallest out of the lot.

    Spinosaurus jaw?

    This is being sold as a Spinosaur jaw piece from the Kem Beds, Morocco. I have my doubts and suspect it's either crocodile or Mosasaur, but would like your opinions. Unfortunately these are the only photos I got. @Troodon @LordTrilobite Size 4 inch (10 cm)

    Is it a jaw? ID

    I found this fossil in Thurso Scotland 2022. Tings ar not always what the seems to be. but this fossil looks a bit like a carnivore's lower jaw. ( molars look like there ) it's very small but I brought it because it looked like a jaw. even that of a rodent, but that seems impossible for the Devonian age. I would love to hear your ideas thanks in advance.

    Rock found near lake

    Not sure what this rock is, if a mineral or also a fossil. Found near a lake near Odenwald, Germany. Put up a picture of what the sign says about the rocks found there. Thank you.

    Is it a Fish ID?

    I found this stone in a pile of stones from a ruin in northern France in the middle of the border with Belgium 1993. I always thought it was a fish print. a few weeks ago after I cleaned my first fish fossils. I looked at this fish with a different eye, is it really a fish? the shape is correct, the scales are correct and it seems to have fins, but the scales pattern runs through that, which I find strange. at the pelvic fin at the end, the stone is 1 cm deeper, but the fin runs through it. so who can help me. thank you in advance
  11. Hi everyone! This is my first post and I'm so excited this forum exists. The first fossil I'm asking for an id on was found at the TN VA line off interstate 81 at a construction site. My husband Larry said that there were several pieces of it like a cut tree so we were thinking it might be a piece of petrified wood. Any help would be greatly appreciated. The measurements are 228.6 mm L x 228.6 mm W on biggest side 177.8 mm W smallest side x 114.3 mm H.

    Is this a worn dinosaur ungual?

    This is probably a long shot but I figure I’d post it anyway because I’m really not sure what bone this chunk could be from… This is a large chunk of bone (over 15 cm in diameter) from the Hell Creek Formation with a unique shape. A personal find. It’s rounded on one end but tapers at the other, however at the tapering end it’s fairly obviously broken whereas the rounded end appears to simply be weathered. One side is convex like a dome whereas the other side is concave like a bowl. The entire piece is heavily weathered, although there is some intact cortical bone in the concave si
  13. The 2nd fossil that I need to try to id is interesting! It's has pits all over it. I looked at some photos of Stigmaria which looks quite similar, but I thought it couldn't hurt to get others to look at it and see what they think. I appreciate any help you can provide. I'm not exactly sure where it was found. Sorry about that. The measurements on this are 114 mm L x 88 mm W biggest side 76 mm W smallest side x 63.5 mm H. Thank you, Lezlie
  14. Picked this up at a dry land site some time back and forgot about it. While going through my fossil boxes recently, I re-found it. It came out of the Tamiami Fm. near Sarasota with a lot of other Pliocene/Pleistocene material. There seemed to be some Miocene mixed in there as well, so I am not sure where to start with this one. Does anyone know what it is? Thanks!
  15. Hello . Recently got this caudal vert from Hill county of judith river formation . Is this a hadrosaur or a ceratopsian vert ? Best Regards Guns

    Central Texas - Rudist ID?

    Hi all - I found this in a creek in Central Texas. Looks like a rudist to me. There’s a good amount of detail visible on it, so I was wondering if anyone might be able to ID it down to genus (or species)? Thanks so much!

    Fossil or just a stange rock ?

    Yesterday, i found this rock near a railroad. I have never seen anything like this, do you think it could be some kind of leaf fossil or just an interesting rock ? Found in Québec, Canada
  19. Hello. I am looking for some help identifying this fossil. Here are some pertinent details. Thanks in advance! Size.... It is about 42mm long by 21mm wide. It is a full fossil on the surface of a mostly spherical rock that is just slightly bigger than the fossil itself. Shape... Oblong. Oval. Color... The rock is a brown color. The fossil is white. The rock appears to have a lot of minerals in it. I can see glints of very small crystals throughout the fossil. Texture... Very rough. The organism appears to have had body segments. The deepest parts of the

    What species are these?

    Hi all I am looking at some fossils online but the seller doesnt have much information about them. I recognise one as an ammonite but unsure what species. I do not know anything about the bottom one. If anyone could help that would be greatly appreciated Cheers
  21. I need some help with this little guy I found in the Peace River (FL). I have the darnedest time with ear bones - they all look alike to me. Has anyone seen one like this before? Is it marine or land critter? It seems well mineralized and measures about 30mm x 20mm. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
  22. I found this little piece of jawbone that has some curvature to it that initially caught my eye and upon closer examination it appears to have a tooth root in one of the sockets. My first guess is cetacean of some kind. Is that right, or am I way off? I'm not sure if it's marine or not. Thanks in advance!

    Trilobites and fish

    Hello, I purchased this trilobites and fishes from a flea market so I have zero information about them. My guesses are that the trilobites are "elrathia kingii" and the fish that is alone is a "Dapalis Macrurus". Nut now idea of the fishes that are together. It would help me if you could look at them and confirm my suspicions or give second opinions. Thanks!! Trilobites: Fish 1: 3 Fishes:
