    Need this marine fossil ID'd

    This fossil was found in Petoskey, Michigan at a beach I'd rather not identify while I was looking for petoskey stones with my family, it caught my eye as looking like a shell of some kind. Since I couldn't come to a conclusion as to what it was I consulted a michigan based rockhounding youtuber who advised me to post here. I cannot, for the life of me, come to a conclusion on what it is with any certainty, please help.
  2. Hey fossil people... more specifically hey Arizona fossil people. I'm wondering if any of you have run across fossilized horn coral in this state? If you have, tell me about it. I'd love to see examples of what you've found. I"ve found lots of brachiopods and other marine life in Arizona but this is the first time I've found horn coral. The idea that Arizona used to be underwater is fascinating to me. Theyre not the prettiest specimens... but i found them and they're mine! Lol. For those wondering, I found these near Payson Arizona. Same place I've found byrozoans, brachiopods, and

    Devonian Fossils?

    Hi everyone, havent posted here in a very long time. I have been out fossicking a few months ago in a region of New South Wales, Australia in a devonian limestone dominated region. There are entire strata maade up of beds of Spirifer and Orthoceras and an array of corals, therefore its evident this used to be a shallow warm sea, of devonian age. There is this one fossil however, with images (attached to the post) that appears to be a ring almost however it has to layer. I have used a ruler for scale I'm unsure as to what this is and if it is even an animal. Any help would

    Caesar Creek Lake Fossil

    Greetings. I am new to the forum and this is my first post. I'm an amateur collector in Ohio who recently visited the Caesar Creek park and came back with a fossil I can't identify. Here is data about the site: Liberty and Whitewater Formations (Camp, Roadside Geology of Ohio, p. 61) Classified Ordovician Limestone and Shale The fossil is just over six centimeters long. It washed out of the formation naturally; I've done minimal preparation. The fossil has a flattened cone shape. One end has a distinct point, the surface is pitted and wrinkled (skin-like), and there

    A fossilized conch shell?

    Actually I cleaned the shell and removed inner matrix. I got this while digging at beach .

    Crinoid? Cephalopod? Other marine life?

    Hello all, and thanks for being here! I am looking for an ID on these fossils for my own gratification! My focus is in archaeology, so I come across fossils often during surface collection adventures! A little about the location: These were found in Nancy, Kentucky, USA on a partially man made flood-control lake called Lake Cumberland (Cumberland river basin/Cumberland plateau). The banks are rich with small to medium chert concretions, fossiliferous sedimentary stones, and small to medium iron inclusions. Preservation of these specimens are, generally, fair to good.

    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

    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.

    New Mexico fossil

    I thought this looked like a coprolite or possible ammonite concretion on top of a clump of fossilized unknown. What do you think? Found within an hour of Albuquerque along the Rio Puerco or cliffs* over the Rio Grande. Either Rio Rancho or Los Lunas. * By cliffs, I mean sandy hills full of rocks. On their way to being washed into the river. *****I was told the photos did not show. I have tried to edit to add them. Weird glitch in this program since I see them all when I log on, even if I get off the site then back on. Thank you for letting me know they were invisible

    Circular Branching fossil

    Could this be a sponge? Note the radial structure and the occasional branching rods. Collected in Missouri, but location and age are unknown. Also, the specimen is sawn to 3/4" thick and the fossil doesn't extend into the sawn area! There is a lot of tiny crinoidal hash in the matrix rock. The light blue grid is one inch.
  15. Hello everyone! These fossils were found in the Southern Gulf Islands of Western Canada. I am currently working a museum that has been mostly volunteer-run since the 1970s, so a lot of our records have gaps. These two fossils are a part of our collection, but we don't have much information on them. Do you recognize either of these two fossils? Thank you so much! Justine
  16. I am new to fossil hunting, but I’ve always been a beachcomber and rock hound. I recently visited Sunset Cliffs in Point Loma, in San Diego, California. https://goo.gl/maps/csoVaYRvBr9556AJ7 As my husband surfed below, I remained atop the bluffs, where these sun-bleached relics kept demanding notice. Along with easily identifiable shells were a few items that I’d love to know more about.
  17. Hi all My son and I were looking through some teeth from the NSR and want to get your opinions on this one. We first thought that this was a mosasaur tooth; however, someone suggested that it may be a plesiosaur/elasmosaurid tooth. We wanted to gather some more opinions since we have no idea what it is. The tooth measures 16 x 6 x 6 mm. Thanks and Happy New Year!
  18. Hello! So I found this little specimen at the oregon coast. Specifically the beaches between Neskowin and Lincoln city. Its about an inch long and it is incredibly smooth. Is this a plant fossil? or animal? .... Just a shell fragment? Lol Any ideas or information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Chaetetid sponge (?)

    The guess I did was following @shamalama lead on another fossil. I looked at pics and I think this one qualifies as chaetetid sponge (?). heavier than what might be expected from its mass- (12kilo+) big limestone rock with coral trace showing on the sponge. Depth is about 18-20cm - beautiful reddish ambery color.

    Crinoid Stellarocrinus (?)

    I had no idea if it was a fossil at first (still might not be). The weight is not as you might expect from a rock (lighter) and the tail felt different from the rest. I found a prepared version and I thought they look very similar. Is that a crinoid fossil? I put upper cretaceous as a keyword but not sure, I just found it where I found other upper cretaceous marine fossils.

    Is this a marine fossil?

    I am not sure what this is. Could it be coral or tenticle?

    Is this a fossil. Looks like a long shell.
