  1. I found this rock in a stream in southern iowa and thought it looked interesting but not sure what it is . If anyone could help I would greatly appreciate it . Thank you
  2. I had a friend ask me what this fossil that she found in the Montour Fossil Pit yesterday was and I am unsure. It looks to me like a Bactrite or other strait-shelled cephalopod but I am not sure. Any help would be appreciated.

    Lost River, WV Clinton Group Fossils

    Here are some fossils from Lost River, WV. They were found near the Needmore formation roadside quarry. These fossils are not from the Needmore formation, instead they are from the Clinton Group. The Clinton Group, from what I found during my research, is composed of the Keefer and Rose Hill formations.

    Looking for ID

    Hello all! We just had a family member pass, and among the items we found, are several pieces like this one. Not sure of this one is petrified wood or some sort of fossilized tusk. There are a few more with a very similar "curvature" to them, like this one below. Beer can for size comparison. Any help in identifying them is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Shark teeth from UVALDE county

    These teeth were collected on a private ranch in Uvalde county. I have tried finding resources about shark teeth in Uvalde county but have turned up blank. What formation have these come from? What species are they?

    ID Ammonite?

    Hello, Anyone know what species this is (and if it's legit)? The seller simply calls it a heteromorph from Germany, late Cretaceous ~ 60mya and measures about 10.8 cm long.

    Large cephalopod from Graf

    I was collecting isorthoceras cephalopods at Graf Iowa (Elgin Member of the Maquoketa Formation, upper Ordovician). I found one partial specimen that in cross-section is about 8-9 times larger than any other I’ve found there. This first pic is from the field. (Don’t worry, the next photos have a scale cube in them!) The large specimen is about 8.9 cm by 5 cm. You can see cross sections of the usual-size isorthoceras in the rock (filled and infilled), and they’re closer to 1 cm across. Unfortunately, the specimen is fairly fragile. I’ve already had t

    Slug ish?

    I've been thinking this is a sea slug or something of the sort. Please identify to exactness, oh Great Exactors.

    Childhood Shark Tooth

    Ive had this fossil shark tooth since I was gifted it at a pretty young age. Since the tooth was marketed towards kids, the packaging had no species ID or location found on it. The only info I could find on the package is that it is labeled "Fossil Shark Tooth", and it apparently dates anywhere from the Eocene to the Cretaceous. Despite its small amount of information, and not completely trusted source, I don't doubt its authenticity, as it holds up appearance wise to other fossilized shark teeth I own, and passes the "lick test". I personally believe it may be Otodus obliquus, but I wanted so

    Again, found by the river...this one could have come from along the canal but that's connected to the river. Nebraska panhandle. Pooh? I see corn and peanuts, lol.

    Help identifying

    This item is fairly large with even weight when held, there is a defined edge that is tapered with the bottom having a curvature and overall triangular appearance. No other material in the area that resembles it so far. I realize could be nothing but wanted to post due to the abnormal shape. Curious if anyone else has idea, we have researched a little but figure more knowledge here that could help. Appreciate any responses.
  14. I found this on a beach near Monterey Bay. (First image) At first I thought it was a rusted metal piece of something. But then I looked more closely, and I wonder whether it is a stigmaria, possibly from a lycophyte. The second image is a closeup of a portion of the first image. On the other side, I peeled away an overlying layer and exposed 5 more of the possible stigmara. (Third image) They appear somewhat hexagonal, though you may not be able to see it in the image. Finally, the fourth image is a closeup of one of the protrusions on the third image. There a
  15. Hello it’s me again hahah. I have not given up on finding a fossil. So here is my latest rock. Thank you for your time. I found it in Arlington wa. weight is about .5lb.-1lb Maybe more still need to get a scale. I do find a lot of rocks like this where it looks like there is what seems to have fun shapes and colors. .lol FYI I am still cleaning it. Not sure how to clean it faster then just distilled water with picks/brush’s it is blue-ish Gray colors and has a strange mouth like feature. And an eye ! It sure does look cool. And it’s about the
  16. I found this in Casselman River in Rockwood Pennsylvania a few years back just laying in the middle of the river as I was walking through it trying not to slip on the rocks haha! Always thought it was an intriguing & unique find but still to this day I have no idea what it is. No one whom I've showed it to over the years could identify it either. Needless to say, we're not expirenced in fossils none the less! I just stumbled upon this site and thought to myself how great it would be to have it finally identified after all these years (found it in 2014) so I figured I'd post some photos a

    Marine ID help

    Hey everyone. So I have recently been fossicking around Yass, NSW, Australia, and have come across a seemingly common formation in the Devonian group both in limestone and just shale and mudstone. It occurs alongside corals, and bivalves (in that case I'm assuming it's marine) and is sometimes in large colonies, such as the ones pictured, as well as independent from one another. Does anyone have any ideas as wo what this may be. Thanks in advance,
  18. I found this bone on the top of clay with waves washing over it. I have no idea if it is old but it looks that way! I'm looking for someone to help me identify it!

    Is it an egg?

    Ok so I'm just asking if I have a rock or something else, and should I cut it open or leave it whole?
  20. Found in the levant on a slope with a lot of material spreading from the cenomanian to the Eocene. Can you help me with the ID? I thought it can be some kind of a gastropod but I know there are similar heteromorph ammonites in this shape as well. Any help would be appreciated.
  21. Hello, i have this little piece of fossil (2-3 cm) that i have no idea what it can be. Its from falaises des vaches noires in France which is Cretaceous/Jurassic area. There are mostly marine fossiles here. I was thinking fishbone fragment or plant? If anyone could help me i would really appreciate it.

    ID requested please

    The location of this is unknown but I'm working on it. It was given to me by a friend who either found it at Palo Duro Canyon, TX or in Colorado. Another possibility is that it is from her ex mother'-in-law's rock collection which would be from Montana or Nevada. Sorry for the vague location! I'm trying to get more accurate information but wanted to see if it's even something interesting and worth spending the time to track down the location with a possible call to an ex mother-in-law. Thank you for your time and input as I have zero knowledge of fossils.
