    What The Heck Is This?

    I found these 2 rocks in a bed of river rocks at an apartment complex in Denver Co. I found the biggest piece 1st and continued looking for more interesting rocks when I found the small piece. I was surprised that they fit together. The big piece weighs approximately 2 lbs and the small piece approximately 1/2 lb. If it's not a fossil then I need to know how it formed.
  2. Hello I am looking for help to identify these two teeth. I was told that they are T. rex but I feel either one of both are Albertosaurus but not 100% sure how to tell. I have included many photos and measurements. Both teeth are from the Hell Creek Formation. The first tooth and the shorter one is measures 2" long by 1" wide The second and longer tooth measures 2 1/4" long by .3/4" wide. Any information would be appreciated.

    Help ID please :)

    Hi All, My father has this item he said his friend gave him when he was younger. I believe it was found in Russia, in a coal mine. He said it was a fossilized walrus tooth, then tusk - so I am not sure. Story is that was much longer but the miners who found it cut it into these smaller sections (about 5 inches long sections) and each took a piece - and one piece was given to my father as a gift. Thanks! CnB

    Mussel looking fossil

    Hi folks! I went to the main beach in Whitby by the town, and I found this rock which resembles a mussel. I was wondering if anyone could confirm it for me?
  6. stricklandhighland

  7. Hello all, My dad passed away a while ago and i am cleaning up his appartement and i found a fossil. I have no clue what it is or if it's even real. Any information about this is highly appreciated. Regards.

    What kind of bone is this?

    Is this a fossil?!

    I found this on a beach in the Isle of Wight. Not sure if it’s a pattern on the rock or a fossil. The shape is much darker than appears on the photos but I’ve done my best. Thank you!

    Tooth id from northern NJ creek

    Found this the other day. Very long rooted but extremely worm mammal like tooth. Thought it was modern but burn test did not reveal any burnt hair smell and chipped a part of the root off to reveal what looks like mineralization. Any tips on this one? Tried to include as many angles as I could along with a tape measure to show size in length and width. thanks!

    Suffolk sharks teeth

    Hi all, new to the forum! I have a few sharks teeth to identify for my daughter, if anyone can help? We met a lovely gent on Bawdsey beach, Suffolk who gave us a mini lesson and said the 2 we had found at the time were sand tiger shark teeth and one was about 4 million years old (I think that was the big one). I’m not actually sure if No1 is a tooth? We are total beginners so not clued up on the time period names or classifications so if anyone can explain what we’re looking at in terms for a 6 year old that would be amazing!

    Found at St. Pete Beach, Florida

    Hoping to ID what this is and see if we have a tooth or a bone and what kind it is. we thought it was a tooth when we first found it. We found it at Madeira Beach, Florida.

    Need help with tooth identification

    I got these teeth a few weeks ago from my sister and I don't know what they are. I think they are mammalian teeth but I'm not too sure. Any help will be appreciated.
  17. I have been on a few geology forums recently looking to post some pictures for ID help. Some of the other posters on those sites received replies with snark and sarcasm. To be fair my experience is just a small snapshot im sure, but I really haven't seen that on this site. Everyone seems helpful and informative so far. Anyone know of a similar geology site that encourages learning? Thank you!
  18. Item 1 looks like a pretty large bivalve, but maybe it's just a rock with a cavity or seed pod? Item 2 seems like a fossil to me, and seems to have the right "look" of a fossilized bone. Item 3 was found in the same spot as 1 and 2, a fallen tree next to a creek in Southeastern Mercer County. Item 4 was found farther south in NJ, near the Delaware River in Burlington County. My 10-year old is convinced it's a fossil - the blue rock is very soft, the matrix seems to be reactive to vinegar. As a beginner with a youngster who is obsessed at the moment with finding fossils, I'd love to

    Fossil find on Amelia

    Found this fossil on Amelia Island, Florida. Can some help identify? We are new to fossil hunting but I’m thinking the edge of a turtle shell?

    Need Some Help

    Hi! I'm new here but not new to fossils. I have a rather large collection that I acquired over the years with my late husband. He was quite knowledgeable about the details of our collection which we shared in a mobile fossil program in the local schools and community. If y'all wouldn't mind, I could really use some expertise in identifying some of the obscure specimens in our collection. I'll start with these Vertebrae

    Is this a triceratops bone?

    Hi everyone! I'm new here and am hoping to find out if the item I have is indeed a triceratops bone from the Hell Creek formation (as it was labeled). When I look at photos of fossilized bones, I see the bone's "spongy" look and all the photos I've looked at to compare do NOT look like this item. Therefore, it seems to perhaps not be a bone, but it does seem to be something fossilized. I apologize for the less-than-crisp focus abilities of my phone camera, but as you hopefully can see there is what looks to me like skin or scale patterns and a lack of spongy-ness. If anyone has insi
