    Help IDing Permian Age Fossil

    Found 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

    Help identifying fish fossil

    other than the fact its 13inchs head to tail that is all I know about it. Any help would be great- thanks.
  7. found 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!

    Help Identifying A Fossil

    I found these fossil today March 12 in a Shale Deposit of the Devonian period. The fossil are about one inch long. I think they are either a type of flat worm or a tunnel. Any help would be nice. Unfortunately they are hard to take a picture of in the lighting I have.
  10. I 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?

    Identifying Canid Skulls

    The following data taken from Nowak's classic paper shows the difficulty of relying on size to identify fossils.

In others, (lupus and latrans) it is more than 1
