    Echinoid fossil ID

    This fossil was found in Malta's southeastern coast. I found a pretty nice maltese website: https://continentalshelf.gov.mt/en/Pages/Geological-Map-of-the-Maltese-Islands.aspx According to which the fossil was found in "upper globulina limestone (miocene , burdigalian to early langhian)": Limestone ID The ruler is in centimeters. Any ideas on what exact type of echinoid could this be? Thank you so much!

    Any Idea?

    Hello everyone I am new here, firstly i hope all of you are doing great. I found this Odontocete brain case fragment , I discovered it in a bunch or rocks that were weathering away and based on the nature of these rocks i am convinced they are Globigerina limestone as such the fossil is probably early to mid Miocene in age. After doing my own research and comparisons I have come to the conclusion that it might be brachydelphid or at least delphinoid what do you guys think? I f you have any idea please tell and why. Also note that the images are not taken in the true lateral or post
  3. So Sir David Attenborough finds a shark tooth in Malta in the 1960's. He gives it to a seven year old recently and now the Maltese government wants it back. Maybe they can trade for the falcon? LINK to ARTICLE

    Is it a fish or .....

    Hello everybody, I have been interested in fossils since I was around 10 years old and am 46 now and now my 8 year old son is also showing an interest in fossils which I am really happy about. I had found the fossil I am attaching photos of around 30 years ago in the South of Malta (Birzebbuga, Malta) in an archaeological site. The fossil itself (bones) measures around 20cm (8 inches) long x around 8cm (3 inches) wide. I showed it to my son and he was being very imaginative as to what it could be of :-) so I would really like to be able to give him a good indication as to
  5. Hello everyone, I’m off to Malta next week and am wondering wether or not it’s legal to fossil hunt there. I’ve seen several sources saying it is but I’ve also seen many people come back from Malta with many finds. Have any rules changed or is it just exportation that’s illegal. thanks in advance.
  6. Hi, I'm new to this forum. I have found the following two fossils and would like some opinions on their identification. The tooth I believe to be a C. Megalodon from the research i have carried out, while the shell is unknown. I would also like to know what the best approach to cleaning the fossils is. Any opinions on both their identification will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
  7. Found this tooth on the seafloor off the coast of Gozo, an island next to Malta in the med. Can anyone help Id it? Thanks guys

    Echinoids and Bivalves, Malta

    Hi, I would really appreciate some help with these fossils. They were found in the Lower Coralline Limestone stratum (Miocene) in what is called the Scutella bed (due to the abundance of Scutella subrotunda). I apologize for not including some sort of scale. Thanks

    Three Fossils From Malta

    Hi, this is my first post on TTF for fossil ID from Malta. A friend showed me some fossils and wished to ID them for him. I already made some research, and one of them should be a Conus sp. In my pic, the boxes are 5cm, so the conus measures an impressive (for a beginner like me!) 12.5cm. My friend picked these from the island of Gozo, and I think from the North West of the sister island. The small mollusc lost detail but have the same conical shape of the larger one. No idea about the shell. Thank you

    14 Mammal + 2 Shark Teeth

    Hello guys, here is my first batch of unknown fossils from my grandfathers collection. Their origins are unknown but I'm fairly certain that the shark teeth are from Malta. If I had to guess I'd say the larger shark tooth is from some sort of great white ancestor while the smaller one perhaps mako? Regarding the mammal teeth I would say Equus for the larger ones. No idea about the rest, the smaller ones look kinda humanish... Anyway I leave it up to you guys to discuss. If more photos are necessary please tell me, I am more than willing to take all the photos needed to get a positive ID on
