  1. I found this in southern Indiana. It is from the Ordovician period (Dillsboro formation). I initially grabbed this for the mollusk located in the bottom right corner (it is a mollusk, right?), but am more curious about the thing jutting out of the left. Is this just a concretion? Any help would be appreciated.
  2. Marine fossil ID, Southern Indiana

    I took a trip to Southern Indiana to do some fossil hunting (they are an elusive creature). I am now just cleaning some of them up and saw this one and it piqued my curiosity. It is from the Ordovician period (Dillsboro formation). Can anyone help me out? Sorry for the use of a quarter, it was all I had. Thank you.
  3. Marine invertebrates maybe?

    Hello everyone! I am back to ask for opinions again on an unusual find in north eastern indiana. It has a few different things going on and i will do my best to take decent pictures for you to see. First let me say the rock in its entirety is around 3 inch (76 mm) in length. 1 inch (25 mm) tall and 2.5 inches (63 mm) wide. The "teeth" are roughly 1/4 inch wide.
  4. mosasaurus or what ?

    i can only put one picture at a time
  5. Mammal (marine) Earbone

    Found very little yesterday. This is somewhat unique as are all earbones. Found in a Bone Valley area with no Pleistocene material but with pre_equus horse teeth. At first, I thought "baleen whale", but it is too small. Asking @Harry Pristis and @Boesse to evaluate, but encourage all comments and suggestions. Jack
  6. search for shark teeth

    Hello, so next week i will be o vacation on an island in Greece and i was wondering if its possible to find shark teeth there and how to, i dont know a lot about searching for fossils and if sharks lived there to create them in the first place but i am willing to try so if you could suggest places that fossils could possibly be found like specific places in beaches, mountains or anything you have in mind i would be really thankful. Thanks

  8. A big crab leg and???

    I'm sure that the one long fossil is part of a crab leg but I can't seem to find anything on the web like it, all of the crab fossils I find appear to be your typical size crab such as the blue crab. This look like it would come from a very large crab. Came across what looked like other leg parts that appeared to be at least 6-8 inches. That second smaller piece, I don't have a clue. There's not much there to go on, just hoping that maybe someone will recognize the pattern on it and know what it belongs to. These were dug out of sandstone in which the bivalves and gastropods have been dated to about 2.5 million years old.
  9. Marine worm-like fossil ID

    I came across these while digging bivalves and gastropods out of sandstone boulders. They look like some sort of worm-like specimen sitting on top of what appears to be a large snail fossil. I can't seem to find photos of anything that looks like these. Just hoping someone out there might know for sure what these are. Thanks
  10. Fossil ID Help Please

    Hi, I'm new to fossil hunting and found some of these at Beltzville State Park on the lake bank in Pennsylvania. They are from the Devonian Period. I've looked on the state website but can't seem to find anything specific that resembles this one. I found one picture by chance online of someone that had something resembling it and they said it was a Rugose Coral Mold. Does anyone know that to be? Thanks in advance for any help!!
  11. Marine fossil ID

    Dug this small fossil out of a sandstone boulder that was littered with bivalves and gastropod. A lot of the fossils found in the sandstone date back to the Pliocene so I can only assume it is from that period also. Thanks
  12. Good afternoon (for those in EST), I found this while hunting for marine fossils and was wondering if someone could identify this for me. This was found in South Bend Indiana and is approximately 9cm long. It doesn't look like the typical crinoid or sponge to me. Whatever it is, it doesn't seem to be very rare as I found a lot of these. It could be geologic but something about the way it is laid out makes me think otherwise. Thank you for your help.
  13. I have read that land worm fossil are extremely rare but how about marine worm fossils? Are marine worm fossils as rare as land worms and has anyone every seen photos or heard of a marine worm that might have a calcium-like outer shell?? Thanks
  14. Recently I’ve found some strange fossils from an area in Simi Valley (Southern California). I had thought there were only shells, but turns out there is vertebrate material! Among other fragments, I found a couple big whale vertebrae as well as this piece here that I am unsure about. I’ve seen some mentions of fossils from smaller marine mammals like dolphins and pinnipeds, maybe it’s one of those? Unfortunately there only one end present, so I’m not expecting to get anything too specific. The formation is about 5 million to 11 thousand years more. Hopefully I can get some more interesting things from that spot. Thanks!
  15. Fossil ID Requested, paleozoic reef

    Here is a limestone reef rock from Tucki Mountain in Death Valley. The strata is vertical. There was a band of reef rock several hundred feet across. Lots of crinoids but it's the sponge / archaeocyathan fossils that I'd like to know about. This is the first time I've done this, so I'm not sure how the answers arrive... Thanks very much! Dick
  16. San Diego ID

    This piece was found at the Del Mar Formation in San Diego. It looks like there might be a bone in the middle (see close up). I’m a complete novice at this, so any information is valuable. Do you think it might be bone?
  17. Hi, here is a bunch of tiny beauties from Texas (Lake Bridgeport). If somebody can help ID the gastropods at 1:40 and a crinoid at 4:20, it would be much appreciated.
  18. unknown in flint

    Found on a parking lot in southern Poland. The flints in the area can be either Late Jurassic or Late Cretaceous-Paleogene in age. The most common fossils are sponges, but ichnofossils, brachiopods, bivalves, echinoids, bryozoans and dasyclads also occur. Any idea on this one?
  19. Hi all I found this at Post Oak Creek in Sherman, TX, this weekend. I'm unsure of what it is--maybe part of a crustacean (quarter for reference). There are two "sockets" on either side of the flat portion. Any help with an ID would be much appreciated (a fossilized shrimp part has been floated). Thanks!
  20. Marine Fossil ID Request

    Fossil Forum folks have been a huge help to me so far. Here is another ID request for a fossil found recently in ORDOVICIAN limestone of SE Minnesota USA fH
  21. I've been lucky enough to get hold of halisaur skull fragments over the past few years! I'd like to start assembling them in to some sort of composite for display purposes within my collection! I would love to see any Halisaurus skulls you guys have? Especially bone layouts so I may identify where my bones fit! Thanks!
  22. I am nearly sure the top piece is Metacoceras. The middle is a clam, but what species? Perhaps Astartella concentrica? The bottom, what is that thing? 6477/6478 show it in detail. I find these a lot. Are they brachiopods? Not shown, but there is a horn coral on the back of the piece in a cross section.
  23. So, I have two more fossils (I think), that I could really use help with.... Both found in same location(s) and formation(s) as my prior posts. The first, looks like the impression of a mollusk/shell to me (about 3/4' in diameter) ??? The second, I cant even begin to guess as I would probably be wrong anyway. lol Its corkscrew in shape and about 3/4' long. It left a mirrored impression of itself on the opposing rock. Any thoughts???!!! Thanks in advance. :0)
  24. Algae anomaly

    Hello everyone, I had recievrd this as a part of set of many fossils a few years ago as a gif, it was labeled as an algae fossil and the piece is very interesting but I am not sure what it is and what the age could be, one side is very glossy while the other is partially so, the glossy side has very interesting coloration and I am unsure of what it could be a mineral or a part of the fossil, the other side has some staining which could also be the fossil I am really not sure but another very unique thing about this is that y the side of the rock has almost a fiberous look with lines running up the specimen. The ruler provided is in inches, Thank you very much.
