  1. Brachiopod ID

    Hello all, I have some brachs in my collection that I have not identified yet, any insight would be great. I believe at the bottom is a Devonian Mucrospirifer but I am not sure the other two look like some Jurassic ones I have seen. Also if anyone knows any texts where I could get information about all kinds of brachiopods and especially Paleozoic ones I would love it if you shared it here as I really want to get to know these amazing animals better. Thank you,
  2. Need help with identification

    Hi to everyone. My grandmother gave me these two, one fossil that she found at the sea here in Greece, and this mineral that she doesn't remember where she found. Can anybody please help me identify them, I am not too sure if the mineral is appropriate for this forum as it is not a fossil. Any help is appreciated.
  3. Identification help

    Hey all! New to the site, found this while kayaking over the weekend in the Santa Fe River, near Rum Springs Park launch, upriver a bit, it was just down from a smaller spring boil, off the side of the main river way. Any idea of what it is? At first I was alarmed, then upon closer inspection, realized it probably belonged to an animal. Thanks in advance for the help!
  4. Mystery Shark Tooth

    Hi all, I recently went on a trip to Brownie's Beach in Maryland in search of Hemies, and I came home with some pretty good little teeth and a few decent sized ones. However, there was one tooth that I found I could not identify. I am not really sure what shark it belongs to, it sort of resembles a sand tiger but the root is very robust and thick. Im more or less lost as to what it could be. Wishful thinking, but I thought it might be a baby megatooth shark or a mako or something along the lines of that. Its a long shot, but I thouht i would ask to see if anyone else could Identify it, haha!
  5. Help identifying possible fossil

    Found this on the side of my yard in Indiana. Notice the strange circular formation on the inside. I only just noticed the back side which appears to be a fossil of some kind. I'm no expert, but from the look of the fossil, my best guess would be a bird of some kind. Then again, it's probably nothing.
  6. Please help identity

    Could someone please help me figure out what this is. I found it by the River in Libby Montana a couple years ago. Just curious what I have, please and thank you.
  7. Need help identifying what I'm guessing is a Fossilized Crustacean or turtle that I found this week on Yellowstone River. Any help would be highly appreciated.
  8. I found a beautiful burned and petrified tree under a hundred feet of basalt in oregon. Can someone please help me identify this and point me in the right direction? Christopher Finck. Thank you
  9. Sulphur Creek Mystery Fossils

    I have some mystery fossils from Ladonia, Texas, collected in the Sulphur Creek riverbed. I'm not sure if the fragments are identifiable, but there is one i fine interesting I'd like to get opinions on, I'll start with that one! (after an overall shot:)The fossil I'm finding particularly interesting is the second from right (detail shots below) THis is a total guess but is it a fish fin possibly? Or a small plant? Next is a jaw fragment I'd love to know anything more about: {Will continue in a reply below}
  10. First poster and fresh account here, so hopefully I've done everything up to code! Found this while at the beach in washington. Thought it might be dinosaur poo, so brought it back. Though i'd love to be sure of what it is, if anything. It does seem to be a bit tacky when licked, but...cant say I've ever licked dino poo before so can't be certain what i'm licking for hah. Pictures had to be shrunk to all fit, then compiled them to compact further, so hopefully details still show. Front Side Back Side Side One (with ruler) Side Two (with ruler) Front Side In Sun
  11. Trilobite ID

    I will post some photos here. These are not my best trilobites and I am limited for space, so I will probably have to let these go at some point. One reason I haven't got around to researching them yet. Still it would be good to have definitive ID. I have my own ideas but would be good to see what you guys think.
  12. So I have this fossil and I have no clue what it is. I am brand new to fossils so I know I don't know much but it looks like maybe a fish head to me? I have asked a few other unexperienced people and they all seem to think the same but I know that with as unexperienced as I am, I'm likely wrong. I don't really have a horse in this race it just makes a difference on how I prep/preserve it and I need to learn. I will include a few photos from different angles to help. So....what is this thing/things?
  13. Fossil found on Compton bay Isle of wight

    Good morning, we found this fossil yesterday on the beach, I’d just like any input as to weather it is indeed a fossil as we are very new to fossil hunting, any help would be very much appreciated.
  14. Help Identifying Tooth

    Can anyone id this tooth for me? I believe it to be from a dinosaur, but not sure which. No location was provided. Thank you!
  15. Benthic Foram ID

    Hi Everyone, While this is not a fossil, it is a very large benthic foram that I am having trouble idenifying. Could anyone either tell me what this is, or point me to somewhere or someone that could help? This specimen is not whole, there is an outer ring on the other specimens like this, that is a slightly different pattern to the one seen here. These are up to 2 or 3 mm across. I have found them in VERY high abundances and need to figure out what they are. Thanks!
  16. I found this piece of what I think is lower jaw exposed by eroding sand dunes next to an ephemeral lake in western NSW, Australia. The kind of place where aboriginal stone artefacts are also being exposed by the eroding dunes. While I am not knowledgeable about fossils, I am experienced with our current environment, animals and bone ID. This doesn’t match anything native living presently and isn’t right for something like cow or even camel either. The texture, surface, weight doesn’t match the feel of modern bone and it strongly sticks to the tongue. There is sand cemented to the bone that does not come off. I’ve had a look online and have an idea about what it might be but rather than influence any answers, I will leave it up to the experts here to provide much more educated answers. More pics in further posts.
  17. This rock was found on a Coastal path in the Isle of Man. Any idea what this could be?
  18. I have found this theropod tooth in my collection. I bought it as a Carcharodontosaurus tooth, but I'm not sure about the Identification. I would like to hear your opinion on the ID. The tooth is from the Kem Kem Formation (Morocco) and is 51mm (2") in lenght. Serrations on the distal carina can be recognized. Can you help me? Kind regards from Germany!
  19. Mostly new to this fossil thing

    I wish I had enough knowledge even to ask intelligent questions but I really don't. My wife found this on our property and we've curious about it. We have found a number of other fossils but none like this. Any information will be greatly appreciated.
  20. Possible Megalodon Chunk?

    Hi! I’m an amateur fossil hunter from the southern coast of GA. While on a dredged Island, I encountered a fragment of something. I believe this could be a carchorodon megalodon tooth fragment because of it’s smooth “enamel”, sandy texture, and thinkness. Dozens of megalodon teeth have been found in this area. Thoughts? This would help a lot!
  21. Bone or rock?

    I was hoping someone could help me identify this. My 6 year old found it in our backyard in Amarillo, Tx and he’s convinced he’s found something special. I have no idea if it’s anything at all, but I promised I would try to find out. For size reference, it’s about 2 inches long and 2 inches at its widest point. Thank you for your help!
  22. Fossil Fish ID

    I recently bought this fossilized fish online. I was wondering if anyone could identify the species and perhaps pinpoint the locality/formation. Thanks, Seann
  23. Shark vertebrae

    Hello, I'm new to this forum and I come here to ask for your help. I am graduating in Biology and my final paper is about identifying species of shark vertebrae from an archaeological site. The thing is nobody from my lab knows how to work with it and I spent the whole last year trying to work with these centra but I realized it is a really hard work, almost impossible. I come here to ask if any of you know some good papers about shark vertebrae that could help in my work, or anything else that could help me in this situation. I'd be so thankful!
  24. Houston, we've had a problem here.. :-)
