  1. Marine fossil found today near creek bed in Beorne, TX ( 20 NW of San Antonio). Please help identify Thank you
  2. Richmond Queensland Trip 21 To 26 September 2015

    I had gotten an invitation to the 20 anniversary celebration for the Kronosaurus Korner Museum in Richmond Queensland Australia. Seeing this a perfect excuse to do a little fossicking I readily accepted and my wife and I made arrangements to stay at Richmond for a few days before function. We proceeded to drive out to Richmond Monday morning 21-9-15 after a five hour drive we arrived at Richmond and booked in to our accommodation and had a quick bite to eat for lunch. My main aim for the trip was to get some matrix to process for macro fossils after finding a small theropod / bird claw the week before while processing some matrix from my previous trip, not big at 6mm long and 1.5 mm wide but a nice find. That afternoon we decided to do some specking along the road among the broken moonstones (round limestone concretions). After a couple of hours with nothing to show I stopped a spot where I had previously found some material and within 5 minutes I found a small piece of moonstone with some fossil Ichthyosaur vertebrae and ribs embedded and then within the next 5 minutes spotted a section of skull protruding from under a tree. Had to drive the Ute over to get the rock as it weighs at a guess about 35 kilos. We had a good look around and lifted every rock near but found no other fossils embedded in the moonstones.
  3. Bird Or Pterosaur

    I processed some matrix today and found this small claw so I am interested to see what others think it is. The claw was found in the marine matrix from the Toolebuc formation that is a marine deposit that dates to the albian period in the cretaceous, about 100 million years ago of Australia it is found around Richmond in central Queensland. The scale in the photos is in half millimetres. the tip of the claw is broken of and what remains is about 5.5 mm long and about 1.2 mm wide. As the specimen is a claw I have eliminated the usual suspects of fish and marine reptiles so I am leaning more to the fly in type of suspect with bird and pterosaur the main contenders. I assume that due to the narrow width of this specimen the claws function is more to slice rather than to grip or scratch. Thanks in advance for looking and I hope some feed back. Comparative photos would be nice especially those of a better quality than I take. Mike D'Arcy
  4. Hi, help with this bone would be appreciated. Hoping to pinpoint the ID so I can label it in my showcase. Found in North Tx, Eagle Ford, Upper Cretaceous. Density strongly suggests marine... Thank you, Suvi
  5. Crescent-Shaped Mystery Fossil

    Hi all, I found this among fossils school was disposing of due to lack of provenance. I am assuming it is marine in origin because it was in with a lot of large straight baculite segments and small ammonites. It is very smooth and quite thick in the center tapering down to somewhat sharp edges. Any ideas?
  6. What Is This?

    Hello, does anyone know what type of bone this is and/or the animal it came from? It was found off the Gulf Coast of the Florida panhandle (Navarre beach). I'm guessing it's part of a vertebrae, but not sure.
  7. Hi All The Geological Society have just published a FREE paper on The Fezouata fossils of Morocco; an extraordinary record of marine life in the Early Ordovician http://jgs.lyellcollection.org/content/early/2015/06/29/jgs2015-017.abstract
  8. Various Teeth And/or Claws? A Super Tiny Pelvic Bone?

    Below are a few beach finds from my trip to Topsail Island in North Carolina. You should be able to click on the photos and zoom in for detail. If better quality photos are needed, please let me know. Any help with identification is appreciated. Thanks! 1. Some type of tooth? 2. Bone Fragment? 3. A SUPER TINY PELVIS!?!? 4. Tooth, Claw?
  9. I need help identifying a few "potential" fossils I found on Topsail Island in eastern North Carolina, USA. Below are four coin size specimens. I have plenty of questions about each -- mainly, are they even fossils in the first place? -- but all and any additional information is also welcome Thanks! 1.) 2.) 3.) 4.)
  10. Possible Marine Vertebrate Fossils?

    Amateur fossil hunter. Live in North East Texas, Upshur County very near Camp County, and I found these specimens on our farm, in various places, not all together. From what I've read, this area is Cenozoic > Eocene. I'm noticing some similarities between them, but being a novice, have no idea the orientation they would be positioned on the animal. If I did, I could google lateral view, medial, or caudal view etc, and have a CHANCE of identifying them. But, I don't, so have the proverbial needle in a haystack here The smallest specimen is roughly 3/4" across, and the largest is roughly 2" across, as pictured. Clearly a variety of bones, but similar in that they are thinner on one side and either have a rounded or abruptly thicker side. Would greatly appreciate any pointers. Thank you!

  14. Fossils in pebble

    From the album Delaware Fossils

    Fossil sea life embedded in beach pebble, possibly a cross-section of Belemnites americans on the right end, among other things. Found on the beach at Cape Henlopen, Delaware. Someone has suggested Paleozoic era based on the age of pebbles further north at Bowers Beach.

  20. Interesting Vertebra

    Hello, I am back! If you didn't know, I buy fossils on the internet sometimes. On EBay, I found a cheap vertabrae. It was only worth 5$ and they said it seemed fossilized, so why not buy it. I got it now, and it definitely is fossilized, just I have no clue what it belongs to. If anyone knows what it might be, tell me. Bye! -Con
  21. Frasnian Id

    Hi everyone! A few weeks ago, I went hunting in the frasnian of Frasnes (Couvin, Belgium). Among crinoïds, brachiopodes and others, I found this beautiful thing. I have no idea of what is it... maybe a cephalopode rostrum but not sure at all. Thanks to GrandBlanc, I have wonderful pictures to show you! Please help me identify it
  22. Help With Fossil Identification

    This was found Wednesday, March 11th, 2015 in north-northwest San Antonio. There are small triangle shapes within a concave impression in the rock. It was found in a creek bed if that helps.

  24. Possible Marine?

    My dad found this in Arizona, Nevada or Mexico sometime between the 1960's & 80's. I rediscoverd it tonight & would like any information on what it is and a time frame. I'm assuming it's marine...please let me know what you know!
  25. Fossil Id Needed

    I have what appears to be a portion of a fossilized jaw-bone that I found while walking through a salt water creek. I have cleaned some coral growth from it to get a better idea of what it is/was. It does not look like some of the "normal" things that I run into but I am not an expert as I mainly look for historical ceramic artifacts. It appears to be a jawbone and is about 6.5 cm long Thanks
