  1. Hello everyone. I'm trying to figure out what these things are. I find them very regularly looking for shark's teeth on SE Florida beaches near Jupiter and Juno. My posted image has the front and back of a few different specimens, stark white and some grey. Does anyone know what these are? Thanks, TWB

    Dinosaur teeth

    I've found lot's fossils of, I think are teeth, in a site with also many shells located in Portugal. They have different sizes and are cilindrical and straight. Can someone identify what was the animal that had these teeth. Thanks
  3. Howdy! I found a beautiful pseudorthoceras last week and last night I noticed a tiny white organism on the rock. It looks like several "Vs" strung together. Fossil is 0.5 cm, is from the Glenshaw Formation and likely Brush Creek Limestone. I have no idea what this thing is. Thanks for the help.

    fossil of a marine creature?

    It was found in a ravine in sedimentary rocks from the Upper Jurassic, in Spain. The rock surrounding the fossil is conglomerate, sandstone, siltstone, and clay. The fossil is approximately 2 centimeters long and has an irregular cylindrical shape. It is brown with some darker parts. One of the edges in its transversal section has shiny white spots as if it were crystal. The outer layer has a texture like veining along the cylinder. It may be a fossil of a marine creature that lived during that time, such as a mollusk shell, a shark tooth, or a fish backbone? Belemnites: T

    Bone ID - marine mammal?

    Hi, I found this bone embedded in a exposed layer in a cliff on the surf coast, in Victoria, australia. It was in a red sedimentary layer just above the 26Mya volcanic basalt layer. Some of the bone can be seen still embedded in the cliff (see center of last photo) Fossils of Miocene marine mammals (primitive whales etc) have been previously found in the surrounding region. Could that be what this is? Cheers, Oli

    Pennsylvanian Marine and Plants

    Howdy! I'm finding some beautiful stuff digging in the Glenshaw Formation of Allegheny and Beaver counties. Hoping to find out/confirm what they are. The limestone finds I believe are from the Brush Creek Limestone. As usual, all help is greatly appreciated, thanks! Side view of Wilkingia? Never saw round leaves before Spiropteris? Sigillaria bark? Some sort of bone or root of a Petalodus tooth?
  7. Hello, on A trip back to capitola CA I found another bone jutting out from the cliffside about 5 feet from the ground. Easily excavated (though it cracked in two) it is definitely a fossil, but to what animal? Perhaps a smaller marine mammal? Any help with ID is appreciated @Boesse you were very helpful last time with ID, how about this one?

    My latest find!

    My husband and I like to go on walks along the wooded dirt trails behind our home. Last winter, we stumbled upon a particular stretch of path. It was constructed using refractory bricks smack dab in the middle of the woods. It wasn’t until recently when we decided to revisit the area. One does not simply stumble upon an old brick path in the middle of the woods. It had to have once led somewhere. We did, in fact, find an old stone well nearby. Across from the well, there’s the foundation of a house that’s nothing but rubble. I also found an A&W Root Beer can amongst the rubble. It was the
  9. Hello all, decided to pop over to the Santa Cruz Coast in CA to see if anything notable was churned up by the recent storms we've had. A couple brachiopod fossils turned up, but this is what really caught my eye as I was perusing the beach. Fossil whale bones have been found in the area before and I'm wondering if that's what I have here. Very porous looking structure but definitely made of stone, with striations all going the same direction. Thanks in advance for ID help.

    Giant Dino Gamete fossil

    Well we all know its not a giant dinosaur gamete fossil but I could not resist with the title or eyes in one photo. Best guess poopy is a coprolite but the extremely smooth surfaces and fact that its so strait make me wonder if this was fossilised when still in the intestinal chamber. The other option is that it is geologic in origin but the shape. Found in the toolebuc formation of central Queensland Australian - marine cretaceous formation. length of specimen 110 mm and 30 mm at widest point. There are also has striations visible in several sections and there are no
  11. 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
  12. Hello, I found these a while ago on Jebel Jais (part of the Hajar mountain range) in Ras al Khaimah, United Arab Emirates. I can't find much information on age... I am writing something about the fossils of the UAE, but I don't have much to say about these fossils, as I do not know what most of them are! Any information will be helpful. I have found solitary coral, like this one, at the location before.

    Marine invertebrate pile?

    Hello, everyone. Recently I received an interesting fossil, like a pile of marine invertebrates. It is very hard and heavy. The seller said that he was not sure about the source information. I hope someone can help me identify it. Thanks

    Vertebrate or Pseudofossil

    Hi all. I was was hoping to get help with this one from the community. It was found in-stream near an outcropping of Pittsburg Bluff in Clatsop County, Oregon, and downstream of some Astoria Formation, both marine sediments. I have found mollusks and arthropods in the same collecting area, usually in very hard concretions. To my knowledge no marine vertebrate fossils have been found within the Pittsburg Bluff Group so if it is vertebrate I'm thinking it came down from the Astoria Formation southwest of the area. It looks and feels like bone, and is extremely porous (tongue sticks). Or it may j

    Unknown Small bone

    Hello All I have found this small bone in marine Cretaceous material from NW Queensland. It is very small less than 5mm long it doesn't appear to be fish in nature( could be wrong thou) and seems very small to be turtle. Does anyone have any thoughts? Update thanks to some great help it now appears that this is a small turtle phalange. Cheers

    Fossil Fish

    Bit of a long shot this one, but here goes… My daughter has recently been given a small collection by a colleague of her mother who heard she was interested in fossils. The previous owner had clearly done a bit of collecting around Lyme Regis and also bought a few pieces. There’s a few Moroccan pieces (low grade trilo, some Mosasaur tooth crowns), an insect in amber and some Madagascan stuff. By far the most interesting piece though is this fish; it has no label and I have no idea where in the world it could have come from. Can anyone shed any light on possible provenance or even identify

    Vertebra Queensland

    Looking through my usual matrix I came across this partial vertebra that has me stumped. Both sections were sitting together in the matrix so assume they are part of the same vertebra. Definitely not fish so some type of reptile ? Hopping the process end is diagnostic enough to determine species. Second piece in post below Mike
  18. So a couple of weeks ago, I, along with my younger brother, decided to embark on our first field trip with the Dallas Paleontological Society. The destination was Moss Creek, a decently sized waterway on private property that feeds into the NSR. Just like in the main river, we were seeking a red layer exposure of the Ozan Fm (though I read that this red layer is different from the one at the river). This site is famous for its abundance of marine microfossils, namely shark/fish teeth. One of the people on the trip was a researcher (Shawn Hamm) who is currently finishing up a paper on this very
  19. Hello everyone, I saw these marine looking fossils in what I think are sandstone blocks used to construct the Alcazar in Cordoba, Spain. I saw a lot of bivalve looking fossils in these blocks and one really interesting one, which looks like a sea urchin to me. I am a total newbie, so would really appreciate any help in identifying the age and ID of these fossils.
  20. Hello everyone! This is my very first post here and I really hope to get some help with identification. Over the course of the last couple of weeks, I have been finding these cylindrical fossils in a coastal area of NJ that was once covered in ocean. I don't have much information on the area but was told by one paleontologist that fossils from here typically come from 10 mya and marine mammal fossil finds are relatively common. He took a look at some of these photos and could not offer any possible identification or ideas. I have been able to find bits and pieces and glue them toge

    Crab? Crustacean? Skull?

    I came across this one today and am stumped as to what it is. It comes from a Queensland beach, Australia in a location where I mostly only find crabs and shells. There really isn’t any information on the age of the rock that they come from. The best guess is from a paper written in the late 1800’s suggesting a date of around 10,000 years. Judging by the gradient of rock colour/type I suspect some are much older.

    Is this even a fossil?

    I found this rock in spiti, India which is known to have a lot of marine fossils. I picked it up because it kind of looked different. Is this just a normal rock?
  23. Hi there, I believe I found a brachiopod fossil (pedicle valve). I'm hoping for some help identifying it more specifically - family, genus, or species? It was buried a few feet deep on an eroding, sandy hillside about 30 meters above sea level. The hill is about 2 kilometers from an inlet around the Puget Sound region of Washington state (glacial till). Please see attached photos. It looks like there might be other shells fossilized within the cavity. Please let me know if you need more info/different angle photos. Thank you in advance for any help!
  24. So today I went on my first trip with the Paleontological Society of Austin to the Brownwood area to visit a couple of Paleozoic sites. It was a blast and just what I needed after a busy week. However, I'm not gonna go too far into the details because I plan on writing up a trip report soon. I think I found some pretty cool stuff . Instead, I'm writing this topic because I am simply too anxious to wait on hearing an answer to this question I have. Our first stop was along a roadcut that was situated within the Pennsylvanian Adams Branch Limestone (Canyon Group) and Strawn Group. O
