  1. Hi! I bought this trilobite, which i identified as a Phacops- i bought it at a small mine that sold rocks, small gems, and fossils. I bought this [price redacted], but now have begun to doubt its authenticity.
  2. Hi there, I have just found stored away these two fosils that I bought as a youngster many moons ago and am hoping you may be able to help me identify thier authenticity or otherwise and perhaps ID them also. I assume the fish either is or is supposed to be from the green river formation, but beyond that I am lost... Any info would be much appreciated Ta, Dave

    Can somebody help me please?

    Hello, I have this collection of fossils I had gotten a few years back. I’m trying to create a display for fossils, if anybody from this forum could help me identify some of these that would be great. I really appreciate the support and thank you.
  4. Hello, i´ve been fossil hunting for the last 2 or 3 years here in ibiza, i usually find the tipic marine invertebrate fossils. But the other day i found a cliff only accesible by boat that was literally a whole fossil reef of some kind of plants or coral that covered with petrified branches perfectly preserved some kilometers of the cliff with all kinds of marine fossils of all sizes and shapes. The matter is that i started finding bones, in ibiza this is really rare as even in the university fossil collection and archives there is soooo little information of vertebrate fossils on

    Lake Texoma Find!

    It’s been a while, but now I’ve got something worth posting about that I’d like identified. :) Took a trip to Lake Texoma yesterday and my husband found this. My guess is some kind of bivalve, but I’m hoping that someone here has a little more knowledge.

    Unknown Fossil from Italy

    My Professor found this fossil in Italy (Southern Appennines). Is there anyone who can help with the identification?
  7. Hi, Discovered this bone today in water, in Big Brook Preservation in Colts Neck, NJ. Site is known for late Cretaceous period deposits. Haven't a clue as to what animal this may have been (deer or beaver?), and was never good at anatomy, so I'm not even going to take a guess at which part of the body the bone came from. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I can provide more photos if needed. Thanks in advance!

    What is this?

    This is a bone from the Pleistocene era in Northern Montana where I live. Does anyone know what it is?

    Mosasaur tooth

    The only thing I know about this specimen is that's from Morocco and it's probably some mosasaur tooth. Is it possible to tell anything more about it?

    Possible Fossil Identification

    Hello, I was recently landscaping in Blacksburg Virginia and found what I believe to be a fossil but have been unable to identify it. I was wondering if anyone on here could help with the identification, or if it even is a fossil. It fell off of a large piece of what I believe to be shale and the color change caught my eye, all I've done is rinse it off with water. Thanks for the help!
  12. So I found these in my backyard while working on my chicken coop and I don't know if they are dinosaur eggs or concretions
  13. Hey there, got a pickle for y’all. This one was given to me and it was said it was from Dakota sandstone in central Utah. Not sure if this means the Naturita Formation, very low Mancos Shale, or very high part of the Morrison formation. I was thinking it was a vertebra but with how deep the curve is I am wondering if it is a toe or extremity bone or some sort? added some closeups of it under a microscope, varied from 600x to 2000x magnification

    What animal does this come from?

    hello, We found this fossil in Port Mulgrave UK. We think it is a tooth but not sure from which animal. It is 3.5 cm wide and 5.5 cm high. Thank you in advance Alexandra and son Thomas

    Brachauchenius tooth?

    I'm thinking of buying this tooth but I'm not sure what it is. it was described as a mosasaur tooth but the grooves say otherwise. It looks like a brachauchenius to me but I'm not sure.
  16. I was wondering is there any way to determine the differences between these insects in Burmese amber? Is there anything different in comparison to their modern counterparts? I am looking into getting a mosquito, but midges look almost identical with the exception of the proboscis.
