  1. 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

    Unknown Bivalve

    While I was on vacation in the Outer Banks in North Carolina, I picked this up while collecting seashells. I was hoping maybe someone on here would be able to tell me what it is. The rock itself is about 4cm long, while the shell that was impressed in it is about 2cm wide, and 2.5cm long. I'm not 100% on it being a bivalve, but in person it looks too asymmetrical to be a brachiopod.
  3. I need some help. From my new pit location. Eocene Castle Hayne Formation, Comfort Member. A partial Marine Mammal? tooth with root. Archeocete? Sirinean? PPinned? @Boesse @Al Dente @siteseer

    Fossil coral

    Hello I found this coral in a marine quaternary deposit I’ve also found living ones in the sea this was found in Jeddah Saudi Arabia I would love to know this species mid possible thank you soo much
  5. mr fossil

    Coral?

    I found this bizarre thing in a quaternary deposit in Jeddah Saudi Arabia I have found a couple of these fossils and also found not fossil ones in the sea floor yet I can’t quite figure out what this is thank you
  6. mr fossil

    Fossil bone?

    Hi this is what looks like a bone found in quaternary marine limestone where I only find fossil shells and marine fossils so this is definitely out of the ordinary I found this in Saudi Arabia Jeddah if anyone knows what this might be I would love to know thank you
  7. I found this 16mm long, slightly tapered stick-like specimen at the Lost Creek Lake spillway near Jacksboro Texas in the Finis Shale member of the Graham formation, Late Pennsylvanian. Until I got a closer look I thought it was an encrusting Bryozoan but this texture appears to be much less organized than the pores on them. It is similar in texture, but more coarse, to the material found in the cores of some possible concretions which have been described as burrows with a core (?) that occur frequently there. The end view shows a thin, shell-like outer layer which is also on some of the cores

    Golf ball

    Novice here- we live in Western Colorado where many fossils are found. I found this after a rain storm at the base of a small gulley. It’s the size of a golf ball, there are striations in the dimples which don’t come across well in my photos. I haven’t taken the time to clean it, as I’m not sure the best way and dont want to damage it. Any ID?
  9. Found close to Paderborn, Germany (Erwitte-Formation) alongside with some echinoids (most likely Micraster cortestudinarium),an ammonite and countless Inoceramidae clams. Marly Limestone Formation of the lower Coniacium or upper Turonium. I was wondering if it could be some kind of petrified drift wood, palm or root?

    Hello, I just found your site after locating a bone on the beach. If you guys could help me out by telling me what marine life this belongs to that would be awesome! Thanks, Matt

    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. :-)

    Mailbox Canine - STH

    When I first saw this tooth, I was thinking Allodesmus, maybe seal. But then I noted the hollow root. Certainly not croc/gator, so whale ? Do Dolphins have hollow roots? The ones I have found have closed roots. If whale or dolphin, which one? Tooth is about 2.6 inches long. Usual suspects: @Boesse, @ynot @siteseer Comments on open versus closed roots in marine mammals appreciated.

    Teeth?

    Hi there, Whilst clearing a pile of rocks from an excavation for a septic tank at our house in Burgundy we came across what appear to be several large teeth. They are smooth and conical in section and the largest is around 8 inches or 200mm long. We regularly find Ammonites and Belemnites as well as other marine creatures but have never seen anything like this before. In the same pile of rocks there also appear to be some small bones which are, for us, also unusual. Grateful for any ideas as to what they might be from….

    Calvert County Fossils

    Hi everyone! I went to Flagponds in Calvert County MD a few weeks ago and came back with my biggest *actual* fossil haul so far (I posted here my first time with about 50 barnacle pieces)! I know there are a few ray plate fragments in here, and I've included what I think are bone pieces although I'm not entirely sure. Anyway, I'm having a lot of trouble identifying my shark's teeth, so any help with this would be greatly appreciated! I'll post numbered photos of my finds with this. If anyone needs a zoomed in, clearer or different angle pic I'm happy to provide more. (Advance apologies for the
  15. I found both of these a couple days ago on my last trip to Big Brook in the same pan, and both have a very similar texture and appearance that leads me to believe they could have belonged to the same animal. I shared both via PM with @Trevor, who suggested the vertebra was likely Mosasaur (but that it might have a diagnostic ID), and that the bone was some type of marine reptile. Just thought I'd re-post here in case others might have any thoughts to add to that. Also, if either is worth taking in for a more diagnostic identification, where/to whom should I take them? I have heard there is a m
  16. When I tap this with metal tweezers, it feels at least partially mineralized, but it has also changed color to a chalkier, lighter tone since it dried, which leads me to think it can't be fully mineralized. Would this be the case with a very young fossil (say Pleistocene)? Is there any Pleistocene material at calvert cliffs?
  17. Found this today at calvert cliffs. The only things I could think of that it could be were a juvenile porpoise or crocodile tooth. Anyone have any thoughts?

    A Very odd bone

    I have this bone that I found 4-5 weeks ago. I have not had any new insights, but I think it strongly suggests marine mammal and because of the foramena, mandible. All suggestions and comments welcome. Jack
  19. Made my second ever trip to Calvert cliffs (went to Calvert cliffs state park). The first trip last year was fun, but I didn't really find any of the big shark teeth that I couldn't find near home at Big Brook in New Jersey. This time I did much better. Stopped on the way home from a family vacation and finally got some of the things I'd been hoping for. Still no megalodon teeth, but maybe next time! Got only a small handful of shark teeth, but was lucky to get two very nice hemipristis teeth, one of which was in absolutely stunning condition. Also got so many stingray teeth I star
  20. Found on Mitchelville Beach, Hilton Head, SC Would be interested to know what it belonged to, whether fossil or not
  21. I found this small bone (about 5cm) in marine cretaceous material from NW Queensland, it is very thin and fragile. It looks very different from the common turtle bones i usually find in this location .Anyone else have thoughts?I have added some close up photos of the structure the total bone thickness is only about 1mm in the middle. Is this possibly pterosaur?
  22. I found this broken nodule in an outcrop of Pennsylvanian shale in Northeast Oklahoma. I’m wondering if the fossil could be the upper part of a skull? Other common fossils from this site include fragmentary fish remains (e.g., teeth, spines, dermal denticles, and coprolites from sharks and other fishes), as well as invertebrate remains from ammonites, gastropods, bivalves, brachiopods, corals, and conularia. If this is a skull, would you guess it to be from a fish, amphibian, or reptile? I don’t see any traces of teeth in the nodule, but I can provide closer views of areas that might be o
  23. This is my first fossil bone find. It was found near the mussleshell river in Montana. More specifically Roundup MT. It appears to be some sort of a whale bone fossil. I'm not sure? Any suggestions?
  24. I found these two stones on a beach on the southern coast of England, and they seem to have fossils embedded in them. I'm not sure what they could be, can someone here help me identify them?

    New for me

    When I am running out of time to hunt, I do not take any time to identify a fossil I do not recognize. This was one of those cases. Today, I am sorting and came across this tooth. I have my fingers crossed 1) because I have not found a tooth with the crenulated enamel pattern, and I hope that @Boesse can confirm it as marine mammal. The location is late Miocene, the tooth is 38.6 mm long. I know that this type of marine mammal tooth can occur in Georgia and South Carolina. Have others found similar in Florida. Please post if you have. Comments and suggestions appreciated !!
