    Paleocene bone

    I found this bone in Limhamn, Malmö, Sweden Paleocene in age (Danian) Does anyone possibly know what animal it belonged to? Now I'm not good with bones but I'm thinking bird? Crocodiles, Birds, Fish has been found at this locality. + another bone?

    Large imprint found in limestone

    I found this huge cylinder imprint when I was out fossil hunting, it was too big to take with me, so I just took some pictures. I was curious about it, I’m not sure if I’ve seen anything similar before? Found on the Missouri River outside Kansas City. Could it be a cast? Or just a rock structure? There looks to be a pattern imprint left behind. About 1-1.5 feet long. Sorry for the pics, I couldn’t take the specimen home as it was huge.
  3. Hi ! My girlfriend noticed some fossils from a cimetery wall just next to my appartment (which is located in a suburb really near Paris). Thanks to some geology museum in Paris, we identified this limestone to be from Lutetian. It also happens that the fossils can be directly picked off the rock by hand without damaging the wall. So we got a few of them. Here is what we found : I believe most of them are Sigmesalia, except for the bivalves which I suspect Crassatella. There are two specimen though that draw my attention : I don't think they are from t
  4. Hi everyone. It has been a while since I have made a post. Between some health issues and all the RAIN we have had here in NC this summer, the trips have been few. Not to mention all of the quarries still being closed due to covid. Recently I was granted permission to search a small, private agricultural limestone marl quarry. It is Eocene Castle Hayne Formation, Comfort Member. Now before anyone asks, no I will not say where or nor will I be bringing anyone to it. It is very small and my permission is very tentative. I have to get permission each time I go. It is a smorgasbor
  5. Here is a weird fossil that was found amongst corals from late jurassic 150Ma. Is it a mollusc shell, a tooth, a bone? Its my first potentially kool fossil ever!!! I am hoping its a fierce sea creature!

    Upper Glen Rose whosawhatsit

    Found this amongst other critters in the Upper Glen Rose near Spring Branch, TX. I'm at a loss, but I'm thinking it's a worm. Also, I'm not a worm guy. Clues, hints, full-blown answers, and red herrings appreciated. :-)
  7. This rock was part of erosion control on banks of creek in Cretaceous Eagle Ford so it is not from here and that's all I know. It's a mass of crinoid stems with a couple things I can't identify, first object is similar to the stems but it's translucent and doesn't appear segmented, next object is also translucent with stripes. Last pic maybe bryzoan?
  8. Found this on gravel bank in creek close to DFW, in a narrow band of Alluvium smack dab in middle of Fluviatile terrace deposits. I'm not sure what to make of it, appreciate input!
  9. Caroboneferous

    Swirling lines found in rock

    I've been finding fossils in limestone, sometimes I find fossils in rock that also appears to have these irregular lines interspersed. They are all shapes and sizes, I’ve attached some pictures. I am just curious as to what these are. Carbonized plant material? Or just inclusions in the rock?
  10. Caroboneferous


    Found this piece near a bunch of Carboniferous fossils in limestone, any ideas? It seems to look like fusulinids ? They are supposed to be common, Found in Kansas City near Carboniferous fossils.

    Help? What are these

    Hi, my son was desperate to find a fossil.while on holiday. Can you help identify the 2 things we found? A geologist friend suggested one is coral. The pitted texture seems to go right through to the other side. Thanks for any help. Aileen

    What is it?

    We found this in a tributary of a creek that runs through my sister's backyard in St. Louis, Missouri. Also found druzy quartz, brachiopods, bryozoans, and other molluscs and a few geodes. It looks like burrows in rock (flint?) Top photo shows cluster of shells found at the bottom of the tube. The rock is about 1 square foot in size. Is it a trace fossil of a burrowing mollusc? Any information will be greatly appreciated.
  13. Hi guys, I recently started learning to fossil hunt for my son as he loves dinosaurs and on our first trip we found this in a limestone. I am completely new and really sorry if this borders on an insult to some of your experience but I have no idea whether to crack the rock open and have a look or whether I’d end up breaking a fossil of some kind if I did or whether it is just a mineral running through of some sort! There was a much larger rock with the same streaks but in a diamond shape on the beach so if it is a fossil I’ll be running back there ASAP Tha

    Weird limestone fossil

    Does anybody know What this is? Found on a beach in Sweden but came from Denmark with the glaciers. I posted something before but a guy said the picture was not there so tell me if u cant see it and if so please then tell how to post im new here

    tubular ridged fossil?

    As the hammer in the picture shows, it is about 10 inches long. Thanks for any help. So regular no sure if it was organic matter, but is now limestone.
  16. Should this be required for the Ladonia Texas fossils and choctaw county Oklahoma? Mosasaurus vertebrate? Mosasaurus web digits? Mosasaurus teeth? Goblin Mosasaurus teeth? Shark or fish teeth? Shrimp fossil? Pupa fossil? Worm tube fossils? Ammonite fossils? Baculite fossils? Sea urchins fossils? Limestone fossils?????? Snail & gastropod fossils?
  17. After finding a few larger trilobites last year, I found my first trilobite of this season today. It is the smallest trilobite I have found yet, at 'only' about 3 inches in length, but it looks to be inflated and fairly complete. I am trying to determine if I should have this prepped, like my other ones. Thoughts? Also, am I correct in assuming this is an Isotelus, as with the other trilobites I found last year? Thanks,

    Freshwater Fossil

    Found this fossil loose on a limestone shoreline on St. Joseph Island located at the north end of Lake Huron in Ontario, Canada. I am a civil engineer and have some experience with rocks but I’m fairly new to fossils. Any help identifying would be great!
  19. I've had these for close to 20 years now and have shown some of them before but figured it was time to do a proper job of looking for info. (If I did before, I can't find the topic) I know nothing about these, either ID or location. They were part of a batch of fossils I received from an old rockhound couple in Nanaimo, which wasn't too carefully curated (a common problem with rockhounds/casual fossil collectors). Looking for info on the mystery items from that lot is what brought me to the Forum in the first place more than 10 years ago. I know Riley's Canyon, Utah has red corals, b

    Carboniferous limestone fossils??

    I am wondering what fossils you can see in these rocks. they are all carboniferous limestone (prehaps not the red/brown one). I can see Bivalves, coral, crinoids, brachiopods (I think), And nothing else. Why aren't there other carboniferous life. (I understand soft parts go) These rocks are packed with fossils, what can a real paleotologist see?

    Syringopora coral preparation

    Hi I have syringopora coral that I want to make more visible. Right now most of it is buried in limestone. I don't want to remove all matrix, just make "tubes" more visible and appealing. Will soaking it in white vinegar do the job?

    Fossil coral ID

    Hi I found this fossil in gravel pit near Zgierz, Łódzkie, Poland. I think it's syringopora coral, but I'm not sure. I think it's worth noting that fossils from this area are glacial erratics.

    Unknown fossil carboniferous

    Here is a fossil I found in some carboniferous limestone. Does anyone know what it is. It was found in the limestone of the berwick upon tweed area N england.
  24. Hello fellow fossil hunters. Below is a photo of the array of fossils I found. Each fossil is labelled with a number and it would be awesome if I could get each one identified. I thought ahead and took the photo on grid paper with each square being 5mm. Item 1 is just some quartz crystal I picked up, item 4 is a piece of some unidentifiable shell and the rest are legit fossils. I am a rooky and an amateur so please let me know if I get anything wrong or if I need to add any more detail. Location: Batesford Limestone quarry, Geelong, Victoria, Australia. Geology: Sometime betw
  25. This triangular prism is covered in small fossils of coral, bivalves, and trace fossils. The main question I have is about these 6 curvy lines going through the entire rock. Bioturbation? Stromatolite? Erosion? It was found just outside of Las Vegas.
