    Need help… bone or rock?

    Found this today in East Feliciana Parish Louisiana. Any idea as to what it is…. Thanks

    Found in Southern Louisiana

    While riding four wheelers along the creek, my friends found this. To my completely untrained eye it looks like some sort of phalanx, but I have no idea. Several fossils have been found in the area from the pleistocene, pluocene, and miocene epochs. If you have any ideas, let us know!
  4. Does anyone know any good places to search for fossils in Louisiana?
  5. SawTooth

    Unknown invertebrate

    I found this fossil a few years ago (since coronavirus started) in south Louisiana. I found another fossil tooth, likely mammal, that conveniently disappeared as soon as I got my forum account. It appears to be an Isapod like creature, any help? Sorry the picture quality is not great.

    Is this invertebrate or vertebrate?

    Hello, the decorative rocks in the complex where I live in Louisiana have fossil traces. Many (possibly all) seem to be metamorphic from originating sedimentary layers. Mostly shells and coral imprints, but I've found two like this now. What is this please? Is it vertebrate or invertebrate? I don't know the actual origin of this rock, where the company that provided it gets them from. It is about one quarter inch in size.

    Can anyone identify this fossil?

    My mother accumulated some fossils during her teaching career in Louisiana. At one point...probably 50 years ago....they were sent to LSU to be identified. Over the years, some of the labels have been lost and I've recently gotten the identification of most. But this one is still "up for grabs"...the original label said "annelid?" Any help would be appreciated....I'd like to get them appropriately displayed....for some reason someone thought it was a good idea to glue them onto styrofoam.
  8. I have been too busy to get out fossil hunting when I want but there are a few recent times I've been able to get out. I wanted to try and post a small trip report about them. On October 31 I had the opportunity to visit the W.M. Browning Cretaceous Fossil Park in Prentiss County, Mississippi. Most people from the area are probably familiar with this old site but I'm a new resident to this part of the South so I wanted to give it a try. It's Late Campanian Demopolis Formation. It was a little cold and rainy but warm enough for someone used to North Dakota. Apparently th

    Cane River Eocene Fossil

    I collected this specimen at an Eocene Cane River Formation site in Louisiana during a recent trip. It kind of resembles a cephalopod gladius but I can't find a particularly close match. I did find a ton of Belosaepia guards at the site so the environment seems suitable at least. It's about 5 mm in length.

  11. Need help as I have tried to search with no results please. Found in East Feliciana Parish, Louisiana
  12. My grandson is turning 8 soon and he dearly loves dinosaurs and fossils. I want to take him fossil hunting for his birthday. I'm in Winn Parish, which is the northern part of the central area of Louisiana. Natchitoches, Grant, Rapides Parishes are close. Does anyone know where I could take him to find any fossils in these areas? I hope so and would be so appreciative!
  13. In the late 1950's my Dad was working for the Boy Scouts of America professionally out of Alexandria, Louisiana. One of his volunteer leaders north of Alexandria was a collector of Native American artifacts, and while looking for artifacts, stumbled upon a large lower jawbone near a sandy steep nearby hillside overlooking a river. He gave my Dad the jawbone and told where he found it. We as a family went to the site and found numerous large "sharks teeth", and petrified sea shells. Dad later became friends with a oil drilling crew foreman, who gave Dad two what appears to be

    These were found about 10 - 15 ft. below the surface in red dirt layer of a hill with elevation about 100 ft. above sea level. (one of the highest points in our parish) along with lots of other similar pieces that look like Osteoderms or scouts. They are not located at a known fossil formation but in a current dirt/rock pit. We have found many native American tools and arrow heads on this hill in central Louisiana and while my husband was digging with an excavator we started noticing random bright objects in the otherwise solid red dirt layer and some of their photos are attached. We did lick

    Not sure what this is...

    Hello, I'm new. This was found in Central Louisiana, in a rock/dirt pit. Between 30-40 ft. deep. Other fossils were found in the same area. It was under a thick (around 10 ft.) layer of reddit. Please be patient with me. I'm new, but have found some great fossils from this new dig. thanks
  18. After a 3 month dedicated search (coughSisyphean) to figure this out on my own, I still can’t find anything that remotely looks like this. I’m a longtime SE LA/SW MS creek gravel rockhounder and I’ve never come across this before. I’ve shown it to some other area collectors-no luck. This was found in a creek running through the upper terraces of the (pre-loess) La Citronelle formation not far from the Amite County, MS border. *I should also mention that Louisiana gravels within the (Plio) Citronelle contain much older rocks/fossils that are believed to have been transported by glac

    Found on Holly Beach

    Found this on Holly Beach, looks like a tooth, but I'm not sure what kind.
  20. This Is my first post. I am a amateur hunter from south Louisiana. I have had a lot of trouble finding fossils. I have found one chrinoid in a creek, but aside from coral,nothing has been found.I have found that the two prominent spots from the days of past have been covered long ago. I also realize I in a area with not a lot of potential for ground or creek fossils. I have done one trip, and found plenty there, but that was a long drive to Texas. I have even emailed people such as LSU and Alabama professors and geologists from Mississippi, Louisiana and Tennessee. Help please!

    Is this part vertebra?

    Found this in central Louisiana along with what I would assume is the end of a rib bone? How can you tell if it was from a land animal or ocean dwellers of the time. Excuse my lack of knowledge in this area I am new to this hobby. The first picture has clearly a hole through it where I’m assuming was where either nerve/blood vessel ran through. Just not sure what part of bone it is or who it belonged to.

    Help with ID

    Found this one and I can’t seem to figure out what it is. Any help would be great!

    Fossil that was found in Beach

    This was found either on Timablier Island or Last Island, Louisiana in Terrebonne Parish. I had it with other shells(clam shells, pieces of clam shells) and what looks an oyster shell.
