    Distinctive bone

    I try to get my fossil friends to join TFF, but still have a few who want my help in gettng odd finds here. All I have in the photos. Found in Gulf of Mexico while hunting Megs. @Boesse Maybe a process of a Baleen whale earbone. The grooved side seems possible, but the other side reminds me of jaw. The Gulf collects both marine and land animal fossils, just a lot more marine naturally.

    Jaw w/o teeth

    With a little time, I am sorting November fossils. I found this jaw segment back in November. Seems like 3 of 4 teeth are snapped off at the root line. When I found it, I thought it might be alligator (short , round alveoli) but now I lean to dolphin. I am interested in whether any members who have seen broken dolphin teeth and jaw fossils in the Mid_atlantic coast recognize similarities. Thanks for looking. A while back, found another small jaw at this site, turned out to be dolphin. http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/115727-new-for-me/ Also just shari

    From the album: Delaware Fossils

    Belemnitella americana showing internal molds. Upper Cretaceous Mt. Laurel Formation Delaware, USA It's not often one finds an internal mold of the guard where the internal texture is clearly visible. Although internal molds of other animals are common at this locality, any internal molds of belemnites are few and far between. Broken though it is, the lower specimen is one of my favorite belemnites.

    Marine Jurrasic fossil

    Hello i found this fossil near Riyadh it is from the Hanifa formation(156million years old)jurrasic. I was in the transition zone between coral limestone and sandy limestone. I think the area I was in was a shallow sandy sea floor. Does anyone know what this may be. thank you so much for your time i appreciate it.

    Marine jurrasic fossils

    Hello I have gone fossil hunting in Riyadh (jurrasic marine sediments) and I have found many coral, bivalves, sponges and a Nautilus(cenoceras) all in 2 hours with no previous experience in the area. would it be possible to find something like a ichthyosaur vertebrae or marine reptile remains. here are some of my finds and pictures of the landscape. Thank you for your time I truly appreciate it !!!!!!

    Shell fossil in wrong formation

    I found this shell fossil 6 or so years ago on the fossil walk in Ulladulla, NSW, Australia. What I find strange about it is that it's a common species at this site, only it's deposited in a rock from after the species inhabited the area. The fossil is deposited in a stone transported to the area when glaciers moved though and, to the best of my knowledge, the fossils in Ulladulla are all from far before the glaciers arrived. Does anyone have any ideas how this fossil came to be here? Thanks
  8. Hello! I’m back from a trip to Texas, and while there I did quite a lot of fossil hunting. I’m not going to be uploading everything here (because I found quite a bit and I feel a bit bad putting so many), but I figured I’d post the ones I’m most stumped on. I’d really appreciate any help. I’m on mobile, so I’m not sure if these will upload in order (they should, but if not I’ll fix it on PC soon). 1: Not sure what this is, but I really like how it’s intact on both sides. Found at Benbrook Lake, Fort Worth to the left of the marina. 2: My dad is mostly interested in this one. May

    Spiked Ordovician Arc fro OK

    One of the great things about hash plates is how much there is to see when you focus in close. I learned another great thing when I noticed a crack in this one from the marine, Viola formation of Pontotoc County Oklahoma. When I finally decided to bust it open it was like taking a whole new fossil hunt from the comfort of home. Most of it is the usual brachiopods and bryozoans but this caught my eye once I got a really close look. The scale is millimetres so this thing is tiny. I have no clue what it could be so help me out if you can.

    Mysterious Jurrasic fossil

    I found this rock in a jurrasic region of Salalah , Oman i found many marine coral fossils but this fossil stood out. I think it could be a coprolite but I am clueless. If anyone has any idea about what this could be please comment I might open it up with the dremil to see if there is any details behind the rock

    Fossil IDs NJ Cretaceous Unknowns

    Hello Fossil Folks.. Wondering if there is enough here to make an identification. All items were found in NJ along the bays of the beautiful locale of Monmouth County. Most everything I pick up is very sea worn, however, a lot have similar form and are the of the same texture. Many remind me of little tree trunks, some are flat like the ends of a paddle with a little curve, and few are round like fingers. Other finds I can easily id, like fossil clams and coprolite, but these I’m curious to know what they might consist of, or what they may have originated from. Maybe they aren’t even fossi

    Vertebra of some sort

    Found this in Alabama mountains near Huntsville. Was in a washed out area of rock. A professor at Ohio State did confirm its bone and possibly a vertebra. Any one have any insight as to what would have vertebrae this large?

    Texoma Duckcreek fm hunt

    Yesterday, my son and I finally made a day-trip to Lake Texoma for some fossil hunting. We've been wanting to make this trip for while, but it can be difficult between both our jobs and weather, and lake levels. I planned for this trip by searching the google maps for good looking locations with a nearby shore access. Unfortunately, one spot turned into a private drive, and the other was closed off by the Corps of Engineers for some unknown reason. We didnt want to hit the same spot that everyone else goes to so we began just driving and looking. The first place we stopped was
  19. Here is an odd-ball I found yesterday. Recently I found a new marine / brackish layer of dark gray shale. My first discovery was two root pieces, which I'll showcase at another time. I also found a tiny Glabrocingulum grayvillense (gastropod) there. This particular rock had a brachiopod on it, and I was getting a closer look. The matrix was soft enough to stab with my tweezers, so I was digging around the margins. This very tiny piece appeared that looked very interesting, and even more complex under the microscope. It's very small. The further out photo shows it with a 1 cm scale.

    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

    Blancan fossils

    I know of a Blancan site where Blancan fauna represent more than 80 % of the finds. The rest of the finds seem to be early Equus. You never know what you might find. I went there recently with a good friend after the deep water levels had subsided. Some of these fossils he found and some are my finds. To be successful in identifying fossils, it is important to understand the scientific age of the fossil you find in the same location. There are no Megs at this site and layer, not even fragments. The consensus seems to be that Megs went extinct 3-4 MYAs. There is some mixture, but unl

    3rd of 3 Toe Bones

    Out today with a couple of friends to a Miocene site. Very few Pleistocene fossils found here. I have found similar fossils at both Miocene and Pliocene sites.
  24. Hello all I have this unknown bone from Cretaceous Marine material, NW Queensland. Most of the bones found at this dig are turtle while this could also be turtle it seems differe nt any help would be greatly appreciated. It was in 3 parts the gluing was not great . Size is approx. 7cm Cheers Top view 1 Top view 2 Side views Bottom view 1 Bottom side Top View
  25. This photo was sent from a person who knows nothing about fossils or geology so the questions far outnumber any answers. We hope to see it in person in 2 weeks or so and will then determine the location, confirm the formation, and provide the size. The area around Jacksboro Texas, the only information we have now, is mostly the Graham formation, so that makes it marine deposits in the Cisco group, Late Pennsylvanian. I have tried to imagine it could be a bryozoan or some kind of plant but nothing I know of is a good fit. I thought maybe someone here might recognize it.
