  1. Found this mineralized bone at Big Brook Nj and on researching it, it looks very similar to photos of both Plesiosaur and Mosasaur vertebrae. About 1-3/4" long. Any help greatly appreciated!
  2. I am going to start adding some images of my favorite finds which I call Collection Pieces. Identifications range from maybe, probably to most likely. I've only started to seriously collect over the past year. I've spent a great deal of time studying and learning Geology, as a hobby. I am located in Western Pennsylvania. At first, a map of the area. Anything in bright yellow is the Glenshaw Formation. The Ames Limestone layer exists between the Glenshaw and the Casselman Formations, which is the Orange color on the map. I have yet to explore the Ames Limestone, so I've only found f

    Eocene curiosity

    This piece of arkosic sandstone from the late Eocene Coldwater formation north of Santa Paula, CA, has a few marine species traces. It would be great if anyone could ID the bivalves, but what really seems different is the set of chevrons I've pointed to in the top photo. Maybe it's just two bivalves wedged together to look like one? Appreciate the help!

    Fused Oysters

    From the album: Delaware Fossils

    Two Exogyra cancellata shells from the Cretaceous spoils of Reedy Point, Delaware. Although Exogyras typically detached themselves from their anchorage while still very small - about 2-3 cm - these two animals continued to live and grow together. The lower valve is about 10 cm on the long axis.
  5. Hello everyone and thanks ahead of time for any help you can give me. I've researched this fossil I found in Big Brook NJ extensively and cannot find anything listed like it or close to anything I've seen anyone find. It's about 3/4" and completely cone shaped. Not flat on any side. The lines do not appear to spiral. Any help greatly appreciated!!

    Miocene tooth

    Hello, I have this tooth for a few years and I have some doubts in the right ID. Its from a Miocene (Burdigalian) formation in Portugal. Size - 4cm. I assume it's from a marine mammal right? But which species? Best Regards Vieira

    Hello everyone. I wanted to share with you my fossils collection. I started fossils hunting in my area back in the june 2019 and that's what I collected and preparated since then. First of all, my favourite belemnites. I donated one of the largest rostrum (7 intact inches, on the second photo) to the Jurassic Museum in my country, feels good So, let's get started, that's one of twelve full shelves, this one is especially for belemnites
  8. Hello, I am a newbie here and hoping to get some help IDing some what I believe to be fossils I found at Murdock and the Twin Rivers beaches (both are along the strait of Juan de Fuca coastline). These beaches are well known for having lots of concretion fossils. From what I’ve heard lot of sand shrimp, clams, and sometimes even whale or other mammal bones. Pic 1 &2:I think this giant rock is a fossilized whale vertebrae... I had one other person who is a fossil expert say that but looking for second opinions. Pic 3: Smaller fossilized bone? Pic 4 &6:
  9. Hi everyone,been awhile since I had time for a quick hunt and a post,and a long winter,being 70 degrees Friday took off work early with the wifey and so glad we did,was such a beautiful day and so fun being in the woods/streams,favorite finds was the sawfish,croc and the little sand tiger

    Marine Fossil? Impression Fossil?

    Howdy everyone. :-) I think I've gotten a little better at identifying the Pleistocene fossils I've found (and figuring out when an ID is probably hopeless), but on the few things I've found that don't fall into that era, I'm still pretty lost. I found the rock below a while back in the Brazos River, in a sand and gravel matrix in the riverbed near Brookshire, Texas. It looks like a regular nondescript rock on its rounded face (top left), but on the flatter face (the other three pictures), it looks like it was cracked open at some point and revealed somet

    MARINE REPTILE BOOK

    Could someone recommend a good reference book on prehistoric reptiles? I'm hoping for something along the lines of The Princeton Field Guide to Dinosaurs. Specifically, I want to be able to see and research a particular animal when it is mentioned. Thanks in advance. Tom

    Limburg (NL) fossils

    Hello all, Some photo's of my recent fossil hunting trips in the Netherlands (Limburg). All fossils are 73-66 and/or 73-69 million years old (late late Campanian, early Maastrichtien). Mainly belemnites (belemnitella and belemnella sp.), 3 sea urchin genus Echinocorys sp. (my girlfriends top find), one horse tooth (Equus sp.) a pipe and a bone (don't know species). Also on the first photo one trace fossil (ghost shrimp/crab) and one belemnite with holes. Kind regards, Fossilsforever

    Annilids?

    Hello! Here are several photos of a fossilized colony of some sort of worm, or so it appears to me. Please excuse the remnants of clear nail polish I used years ago to increase contrast before I knew better. I came across this in Santa Paula canyon about 2 miles northwest of highway 150 where it turns west at Thomas Aquinas College, Santa Paula, CA. It had washed down decades ago from probably a Matilija Formation exposure. The matrix grain seems quite fine and the rock is very heavy. Although I've been up and down the creek countless times, I've never seen the source bed. Eocene oysters, clam

    Texas Marine Turtle III

    Unearthed in North San Antonio Texas. These are a few pictures of the larger turtle "head". I'll post a picture of where I found it and the surrounding area and "rocks"

    Texas Marine Turtle

    Uncovered in North San Antonio Texas in an area I believe to have been under water at some point and had an abundance of marine life. These appear to be back flippers of different shapes and sizes. The largest one being 14.5 inches. This suggests a rather large creature. I'm thinking marine turtles. . I will post the " flippers" first. I will post what I believe to be the heads of these turtles next. The largest having a circumference of 27 inches.

    Texas Marine Turtle II

    Uncovered in North San Antonio Texas in an area I believe to have been under water that had an abundance of marine life. This is an assumed "head" I unearthed. This is a picture of the left and right side. I previously posted some assumed "flippers". I want to know what you guys think. Thanks for your time.

    Help ID marine fossil? Sponge?

    Hello again Fossil friends! I have another fossil I need help with. Found with other shell and coral fossils in a river shore in north eastern Kansas, most likely Pennsylvanian. It looks to be maybe a sponge with exterior and interior... structure? Couldn't figure this one out. Maybe someone with more knowledge can ID it for sure.

    UK flint microfossil

    This is a sponge(?) microfossil in a fragment of a flint nodule. The flint has been quarried from the south of the British coast, which is mainly Cretaceous strata. It looks slightly like it's an imprint, but, upon further inspection, it is a broken off membrane. Currently (and slightly embarrassingly) I have only whittled it down to Echinodermata... I know, I know, spare me your applause, while my PhD's waiting! More sincerely, if anyone could shed some brighter light upon this, I'd be very grateful!

    UK Convex Spherical Structure (marine)

    Heya! This is a spherical convex structure found in the South of the England. Unfortunately, as I found it when I was very little, I cannot seem to recall the exact location, and, thus, the age. Originally, as a child, I crudely assumed it to be a mushroom... Ah, the wonders of child's minds... More recently, I conducted a study upon it, and, due to the septa and mouth-like crystalline structure at the top, I identified it as a polyp cup of a Rugosa coral. However, I am still unsure as to what it is. Any input would be greatly appreciated, cheers!

    Big Brook Bone

    Hi everyone, I hope you're all having a good start to 2021. Tonight I'm sharing a fossil which has been in my possession for a number of years. I found it on my first trip to Big Brook in Monmouth County, New Jersey when I was only 11. Some veteran fossil hunters took a look at what I found and told me it was a dinosaur bone. Being a novice I took their word at face value, however after a number of years dinosaur hunting out west, I was able to see that this ID was incorrect. When I showed it to a paleontologist at my local university he did not think it was bone at all and perhaps some plant

    An Earbone.. I think

    I was fortunate to go hunting with friends ( including a couple of TFF members ) today. Most of my friends know me as a fossil enthusiast, interested in mammal ear-bones. I am extremely good at identifying horse ear-bones. My TFF friends brought me this fossil find, which I did identify as an ear-bone , and they donated it to me, If I would attempt to get a specific ID on TFF. Because I am thinking marine, let me ask Bobby @Boesse to look at it. It "looks" broken, but I am not sure. The only thing I am sure of i that this find is a fossil. All comments appreciated.

    Bone fragment of some sort?

    I found this fossil at the Molecap Greensand Formation in Western Australia. It's a Late Cretaceous coastal marine deposit, mostly marine invertebrate fossils there, shark teeth too. Sometimes marine reptile fossils and there's also been a couple of dinosaur bone fragments found, plus a pterosaur jaw fragment. I visited there in search of shark teeth, unfortunately I didn't find any but I did find whatever this is. Maybe a bone fragment of some sort? A rib fragment maybe?

    Unknow bone

    Hi all I found this little specimen a while back back and have a tenatave Id for the specimen I am still open to other options as to what the fossil may be. This specimen was found in the marine enviroment of the toolebuc formation in central Queensland.This formation is cretaceous aged about 100 millions years. In this enviroment I have found - ichthyosaur, pliosaur, turtle, shark, fish, bird, pterosaur so the posibilities are there. I have held back on the tenatave ID so as not to push in any direction and to allow alternate sugestions. Thanks in advance for any input.
  25. Found this Fossil at Big Brook in New Jersey. It is a marine fossil site and I was wondering what this object is. It has the texture of a tooth or fossilized material. The object has a cone shape with a pointy tip at the end. On the inside, the object has lines and indents running down the side in 1 direction Images
