Help IDing Permian Age Fossil
Genyodectes711 posted a topic in Fossil IDFound this really weird fossil the other day while hunting for brachiopods. It comes from Permian limestone marine/coastal deposits in Dona Ana County, NM near Hatch. The area is a brecciated limestone field. I've collected coral, brachiopods, crinoids, gastropods, and echinoderm fossils from here before, but they aren't always the best preserved. This rock contains fusulinids, she'll fragments, crinoid bits, and echinoderm spines but I have no idea what the large... interesting looking.... fossil is. It appears to have some enamel left on bits of it, so

need help identifying this tooth
Nfp325 posted a topic in Fossil IDfound this tooth in summerville, sc while looking for megalodon teeth, it definitely looks like a tooth but maybe its part of a tusk or something? Im not a pro at all but i am like 90% sure that the darker spots(spots that are almost blackish) look to be part of the enamel. When i found it there was only part of it becoming unearthed but the rest popped out fairly easy but was in bottom of a creek in extremely hard clay/sand. You can see the part that has been exposed to sun, the other side I cleaned a little with a tooth brush. Would appreciate some help identifying it, thank you!

I Think I May Have Found A Petrified Bone!
mitziecapone posted a topic in Fossil IDI live in Maine. I was walking by a small river and saw something that looked like a bone. So I picked it up. It was heavier than rock should be. There was also a larger rock that was up river and it had odd indentations on it. The larger rock was probly 2x2 feet . It almost looked like someone might have used it to ground grains of some sort on it.I wish I had gotten pictures of the larger rock. I am wondering if I did find a petrified bone and if maybe it was used as a tool to hammer or grind things many later on?
