  1. These are two specimens I have found that I can’t confidently identify. I don’t know exactly where they are from but the sedimentary rock they are preserved in is likely from the Mississippian. I live in Northeast Alabama where there are quarries that extract shale and limestone from the Mississippian. Since I don’t know the exact locality they came from I cannot provide an exact time period. One is a white, wedge shaped fossil that I speculate might be a leaf. The other I am unsure of if it is even a fossil but it appears to be a fish, but it could just be crystals that formed in
  2. Hi everyone, I need some help regarding my first preperation work. It's a Cuban Meg tooth in limestone. What is the best way to get the limestone off?

    Help ID this????

    Hello, I was gifted this fossil. All I know is that it was found in Tennessee. I believe it is a coral fossil but because of the 'stems' I can't find anything that matches it online. I know fossils cant be valued for price on here but if this is rare and I should contact someone about having it I would like to know. It is in limestone with quartz sparkles in the 'coral' pieces. Thanks so much!

    ID needed

    Can anyone tell if this might be a fossil? I found it in Mount Lebanon, Lebanon. Thank you in advance!
  5. I collected some crinoid columnals and a horn coral....weathered from the Devonian Keyser Formation limestone in Pennsylvania. As usual, preservation is not very good.

    Limestone jaw? Footprint?

    I was recently going through my "raw" fossils I took home from beach in Gdynia Orłowo and I found what reminds me of a jawin limestone. What really is it?
  7. Hello FossilForum, any help in identifying these pieces I have included would be greatly appreciated! I believe these are various types of teeth and jaw pieces and some entire skulls included. I have numerous crocodile skulls I believe. Thanks for looking and any info or help! TURTLE SHELL? This is what I think is a chunk of a Turtle Shell. SKULLS? Front Back Skull #2 TEETH:
  8. I have found it within Miocene reefal limestones, can you give me any information about its species ? Thank you.

    Fossil from my Great Grandma

    Hello, this is my first post as I stumbled upon this forum attempting to research a fossil my Great Grandmother gave me some years ago. When I was younger, I thought they were teeth of some sort, but after some digging (no pun intended), I am thinking it may be horn coral!? Also, in the second picture I labeled part of the rock #4; it appears to be different from the rest of the rock. Some of it is like a milky matte material and beside it (hard to see in still picture) is a section that glimmers in the light. I wondered if it was some sort of crystal or just another form of a fossil/the limes

    Geological Time Question

    The weather is turning here in Ontario Canada, leaves are raked, stuff is stored safely away, waiting for the lake effect snow. Went for a walk along the lake and well couldn’t resist this rock. Here is my question: In geological time, what do you all think is the top and what is the bottom? Is the limestone newer or older than the layered what I believe is silicate. Every rock tells me a story, I see the impact of multi cell animals, and what I believe is the heavy tidal action of the Silurian sea because of heavy gravity interaction of earth and moon, cephalopods, bivalves, …
  12. After my visit last week (http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/86063-my-little-trip-to-solnhofen/) This time I was at the visitor quarry in Solnhofen. It was very hard work and it was too hot but the finds arent too bad Its a pity that I couldnt find a fish but nevertheless I found some interesting things! Two pictures of the quarry: A beautiful 4 cm long Laevaptychus: A cuttlefish remain: with nice details (6 cm long): And my finds of the day: Two teeth Teeth a

    Another id if possible

    I found this in a creek...near Cayuga Lake, Middle Devonian, Hamilton Group, Limestone. It really doesn't look like a Coral...so, am not sure. It seems like I've seen this on one of the other forums. Each are "ringed" and those rings follow down through the rock...you can see this in the large one. Any help as always is greatly appreciated. Thanks Greg

    Graptolites, or something else?

    A fossil buddy sent me these photos. His thought was trace fossils, but looking more closely, it seems to me these might be graptolites. I confess I've mostly hunted in beds well past the geological peak of graptolites and are not as familiar as I might like.

    Fish fossil ID? Croatia

    Hello, I found this fossil near Trogir Croatia, Oct.2021. It was in layered limestones, from cretaceous period. Could it be determined to some degree? Thank you,
  16. Found in Durham, Ontario, Canada, in limestone. Looks like some kind of shell, but am unable to find anything similar online. This specimen was loose but there are others nearby embedded in the limestones.

    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.
  19. 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
  20. 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
  21. 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. :-)
  23. 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?
  24. 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!

    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?
