    Deep Spring Road bivalve ID?

    So still going thru items from my Deep Spring Road quarry dig 2 years ago. The ruler marks are mm. Below is a shell I "believe" is a bivalve. I think Goniophora sp. Any ideas please?

    Deep Spring Road ID's?

    So still going thru items from my Deep Spring Road quarry dig 2 years ago. The ruler marks are mm. Below are a few items I'm looking for ideas on. First 2 are bryozones I think, 3rd is ????, it consists of the negative which is the tan imprint on the upper left and the positive which is flipped up to the right.
  3. Hello!! I’ll get right into the backstory. I bought these together, labeled as “Tyrannosaur Eggshells”! Unfortunately they came with no other information They are (as you can see from attached photos) pretty small chunks. I was taken aback by how cheap they were, I’ve never bought dinosaur stuff before though so I’m not sure if that’s a normal price. What you can’t see in the photos: -has glittery and small crystal-like structures that shine in the light. Mostly on the sides of the shell. -Not particularly heavy. Seems to be lighter than what a rock their size w

    Advanced Dinosaur Egg Guide

    The Advanced Dinosaur Egg Guide Please share this with those who have egg questions. When possible, technical terms were avoided or defined. Every effort has been made to ensure accuracy, but it is always important to do your own research. This guide is merely a snapshot of information taken from many scientific publications. I am not an expert on eggs, rather I just love sharing what little I have learned over the years, what science has learned over the years. For an overview on how to spot a fossilized dinosaur egg and the sizes of eggs, see the basic guide:

    Need help with ID

    Just wondering if anyone can help with identifying what this is. Found in southern Alberta. Dinosaur Park formation.
  6. Afternoon everybody. I found this in Feb 2020, after Storm Dennis, on my same south Suffolk beach. I've looked at many vertebrae images online and in books, and none seem quite right. It looks closest to a seal...? But that doesn't seem right. Thanks for any guidance!

    What is this?

    Interesting rock I have cut in half. Any idea what it is?

    Would love some help identifying this tooth. Found at a local riverside park near Castle Rock Washington. Thanks so much!

    Literature on fossils

    Fossil forum, Good morning. I have been looking for literature on the following for a while now, and have not been successful. I was wondering if anyone already had information on the following, or can direct me to a place where I can look for it myself. Brachiopods, specifically Lingulids (classification and identification) Salopina genus ( classification and identification), this genus was moved from Orthis, for further clarification Rhychonellida (classification and identification, at least to the genus level). Camarotoechia genus (classificat

    unknown fossil?

    Could I have some help working out what this thing is?? My partner got this random fossil mix with nothing to tell you what anything is and this fossilised has got me stumped
  11. I got a megalodon tooth which is clearly restored, but may we get to know which part is restored? I suspect entire root is restored? New in fossil still learning here. I posted some extreme closed up of root, enamel, and serration. Thanks for the analysation in advance.
  12. Found these a few months apart on a beach in Suffolk of the UK. I am pretty confident, after a little research, that the first bone here is a partial clavicle, although I have much less confidence about what. I read that they only exist in animals with prehensile forelimbs, so it could be some kind of ape? No marsupial presence in the Doggerland that I've been able to find. And, probably not early human, right? (I'm sorry if that's a silly question. It always crosses my mind.) The second, while extremely worn, I think it may be an antler fragment because it has numerous

    ID German Trilobite

    Hi everybody! This time i kindly ask your help to identify a little gift a friend of mine give to me last weekend. I really know nothing about german trilobites...i have no idea! Here are the info: Origin: Eifel, Germany Age: Devonian (probably Middle...Eifelian? Givetian?) Lenght: 8.5 cm / 3.35 inches Cephalon Width (max): 4.8 cm / 1.9 inches I'm thankful to everyone who wants to participate at the topic Have a wonderful weekend!

    Could this be horse related?

    I'm leaning toward "horse short pastern bone" as my best guess, even though the shape feels off. Maybe it's a related herbivore? (As always, I found this beachcombing in Suffolk, in the UK. But unlike most of what I find, this looks unbroken! ) Thanks in advance for your time.

    Newbie Lake Michigan fossils

    Hi everyone, I just got to spend a couple days looking for fossils at Lake Michigan and came across a few that I couldn't identify. In addition to loads of Petroskey stones and Charlevoix stones, I came across the attached rock. Any thoughts on what may have been captured here? The stone is about 4 inches across at the longest (top to bottom in the figure). Location: Charlevoix, Michigan.

    Pseudofossils?

    Evening all. I don't think any of these warrants its own post, as they're just "unusual rocks" that I picked up on the Suffolk beach in the UK I comb regularly. I appreciate any and all input.
  17. Hello, My son and I were walking on a local trail and he found this. We are trying determine if is a bone, petrified wood or something else. We are complete novices, so please forgive us if it's nothing. Thanks in advance for your help.
  18. Hello, I am an amateur fossil hunter whos level of knowledge is pretty limited. I love going out and hunting but my ability to identify and prep what I find is quite limited. I found this cephalopod fossil near Cincinnati Ohio a couple of years ago and it is by far my best find ever. I'm typically fine picking at or grinding away with a Dremel trying to prep my finds as they are usually small bits. Nothing I'm worried about ruining. This is something different and I'm pretty apprehensive about working on it. I read there isn't much harm in gluing it back together and I attempter this. It looks

    Poebrotherium or not?

    Hey hey, all fossil enthusiasts! I found these pictures of a fossil, and got curious about what kind of mammal it is. Have read about ancient camels recently and maybe thought that it is maybe a Poebrotherium skull? I don't have to much knowledge about these kinds of fossils. But would like to get some tips about how to identify these kinds of camel fossils. And maybe also how to tell the fake ones from the real ones. Since I like that kind of "investigation". //Kutembea

    Mystery Big Tooth(?)

    Also found on a shingle beach in South Suffolk, five or six months ago. I was delighted, and spent hours googling herbivores with the idea that it had to be something huge, but nothing fit. Is it not a tooth after all?

  25. Hello crew. I was wondering if you all might help with identification of this egg. It was given to me as a gift, about 20 years ago. It's from Hong Kong (which makes me immediately suspicious). I checked out the thread on how to identify a fake, but not being an expert, I really can't tell one way or another. Now if it were a 60s Mustang, or a vintage computer, I could for sure tell you all about it! Hoping you brave souls might take a crack (haha) at verifying whether not it's real, and what species it might be if it were. It looks great on my hutch behi
