    Hello! Could someone please help me identify this? Very hard. Stone like. found on the shores of Lake Erie, Bass Islands, Ohio
  2. A few finds from this weekend. Fortunate enough to have a cottage on Lake Erie, fairly close to Rock Point Provincial Park which is known for it's exposed fossils of a 350 million year old coral reef. About half were found on the beach itself and the other half in the crushed gravel part of the driveway. I'd imagine the beach will keep yielding new finds after every storm, here is hoping for it anyway.
  3. Hello. I am looking for some help identifying this fossil. Here are some pertinent details. Thanks in advance! Size.... It is about 42mm long by 21mm wide. It is a full fossil on the surface of a mostly spherical rock that is just slightly bigger than the fossil itself. Shape... Oblong. Oval. Color... The rock is a brown color. The fossil is white. The rock appears to have a lot of minerals in it. I can see glints of very small crystals throughout the fossil. Texture... Very rough. The organism appears to have had body segments. The deepest parts of the

    Are these fossils?

    Hello, Completely ignorant about Lake Erie fossils, but have a home near the lake. I’d love to know if these are fossils and anything about them. Thanks!

    Hey all, new here so sorry if this isn’t the way to do this…is anyone able to help identify what animal this may have come from. It was found on a small portion of beach below a cliff with a lot of erosion in WNY south of Buffalo. Not sure if it came from soil or lake…either way it seems on the heavier side and I’m thinking it might be a phalange from a deer figured I’d see if anyone could help confirm or come up with a different ID

    Type of fossil?

    Hi, found this fossil on the shore of Lake Erie, about 4 km east of Rondeau Park. What types a possibly period it's from. My son is taking it to class. Cheers
  10. Hello! I have been lurking on this Forum for a while because I was very busy lately and still is! I found few fossils and I thought it might be trilobits- pieces of trilobite and also something else that I thought it seems 'fishy' and somewhat resemble a fish spine. These fossils are not found in situ but the bedrocks are Silurian. If they are trilobites, it would be my first time found one! I found this on the beach of Lake Erie, just east of Toledo, Ohio two weeks ago. Approximately half centimeter. Yesterday, I found this fossil on the

    Found along Lake Erie

    Hi everyone, new member here. We went camping at Rock Point provincial park here in Ontario and we were amazed with the amount of fossils along the beach. From what I’ve read, the fossils are from a 350 million old reef but couldn’t figure out how to identify some of the items we found. The first one looks like a conical shell, the second almost looks like a pill bug? And finally, the last is possibly the cross section of a plant? Hoping someone here can help satisfy the curiosity of a first time fossil finder! Thanks!!

    Squid Beak?

    I found what looked to be a talon/claw or a beak on a lake Erie beach (Ohio side). Based on the fact that most of my fossils are aquatic in nature, I'm starting to lean towards a lower squid beak. Thoughts? The first pic is of the bottom view, then next two are variations of the side view and the last is the top view of it. I'm also open to suggestions on how to free it from its surroundings.

    Fish vs mammal tooth fossil

    Hi to all. I found this tooth on a beach in Madison, Ohio in 2007. A wave had washed it onto the shore and I was quite surprised. I saw that it was a fossil tooth as half of the enamel showing was agatized. I suspect it is a fish tooth but not sure. It is a great specimen! Can anyone help with identification? It is 2 inches long.

    Lake Erie ice melted

    We bought a fixer-upper on Lake Erie at Ashtabula, Ohio, this past year. We were at the property yesterday knowing that most of the winter ice likely melted. We found this on our property above the beach. It's about the size of a basketball. I'll post 4 pics. one top view then one bottom view without flash then both again with flash. Any and all comments appreciated.
  16. Hi, I found 2 large fossils on th e shores of Lake Erie Ontario and I do not have a clue what they are. Both of these fossils are approximately 24" in diameter. Can someone identify them?

    Lake Erie Fossil

    Found in Lake Erie , Sandusky Ohio. Looks like a snail shape to me. It’s not very big - smaller than a penny. Just thought I’d gather some information on it. Thanks for any information.

    Lake Erie “fossil”?

    Was walking the shore this morning and came across this specimen. It’s hard like petrified wood. It seems like a mushroom cap... any ideas what it actually is?
