  1. Hi there - over the weekend I stumbled upon an area where some of the Cambrian aged Argillite from the old Hayward Creek Quarry in Braintree , Massachusetts was supposedly dumped. I found little bits of fossils which was promising, but I split one rock which had a larger mystery object in it. Does anyone have any idea what this could be? It kind of looks like part of a trilobite cephalon/glabella with what could be an eye. But that could be my eyes playing tricks on me with hopes of finding remnants of the famous, now elusive Braintree trilobites (in particular paradoxides harlini). It doesn't

    Hoppin Hill MA

    Hello, i’ve just recently found out about the possible trilobites that can be found near Hoppin Hill Massachusetts, does anybody have any information on where exactly these are and if they are available to the public?

    Black petrified wood?

    Hello to all! I'm an avid sea glass collector here on Cape Cod and have been collecting it for almost a decade on a beach hugely covered by rocks - which I've pretty well ignored until this recently caught my eye. I picked it up thinking it was just an interesting composite rock but was completely stumped when I saw the wood grain section as well. After some quick internet research I was so amazed to find it seemed to be petrified wood. I think it's safe to say that I probably haven't given such a thing a second thought since a grade school science class so had the contrast in the

    Fossil of first fork?

    What is this? Besides what appears to be the first fork lol
  7. Hello, hope every one is having a great day. Found this metal detecting and read that a fossil can eventually become metal? I have no clue? Thanks for your help.
  8. Hi There, I was able to get out to one of my usual spots to split shale in search of Carboniferous plants. I came across this small, odd imprint. It doesn't look like any Carboniferous plant species I've come across and the venation looks more like that of an insect wing than a plant. That said, insect remnants haven't been found at this locality, but a very rare, very old insect was found nearby. Does anyone have a clue as to what this is? Is it oddly arranged plant pieces, or something else? Thanks! Location: North Attleborough, Massachusetts Formation: Rhode Isl

    Fossils in MA I discovered

    these are the fossils i discovered over at a sight in north Attleboro wanting to follow in the footsteps of a group of tuft university students who discovered a mayfly a few years ago this is the actual fossils i found. hoping I find a new species in rhode island just waiting to be discovered if that's possible today I still find them there and donate them at the natural history museum and planetarium in Providence RI sometimes you can see me carry a bag full of fossils i found
  10. I found this little fern at the North Attleboro fossil site, and I cannot seem to put an ID on it. The leaves seem to be confluent, so i’m thinking maybe a juvenile Alethopteris or some other Pteridospermatophyte
  11. Hi There - I was on a walk along the rocky beaches at Deer Island in Winthrop, Massachusetts earlier today. I came across this odd looking rock. Does anyone have any idea what I’m looking at? Is this indeed a rock, or could it be a fossilized chunk of something? Thanks for taking a look. Cheers!

    Is this a tooth?

    Hello, I found the attached while digging for a retaining wall on my property. Does anyone know if this is some sort of fossil? I live just south of Boston MA close to the water. Thanks.

    10.5 in fossil

    Hi, my name is Jess, I am from a city in Massachusetts where we are lucky enough to have commercial fishermen go out and bring back some of the best seafood. I dated a fishermen for a bit and I could of cared less about money, I always wanted the sand dollars and sea glass and for such a horrible relationship I was at least able to make it out alive with what we thought to be possibly a saber tooth tigers? I appreciate any feedback. Thank you ! Jessie
  14. planning a trip for the weekend to Cape Ann, Massachusetts (Gloucester-Rockport). I understand that fossil shark teeth are not going to be found how about modern shark teeth? or anything else interesting? (Other than the world's best fried clams) ps. 2 weeks later a weekend in Cape Cod which according to previous posts on TFF is also devoid of fossil shark teeth

    Carboniferous fossil ID

    I have this fossil here which at first glance I perceived to be some kind of seed, however I’m not sure. These are both from the same individual, just the positive and negative sides. It is just shy of half an inch long. It was found in the North Attleboro section of the Rhode Island formation

    Modern teeth from Cape Cod

    Hello folks. I’m in Cape Cod on vacation and although I know I won’t find any fossil shark teeth here I HAVE to collect something so I walking the beach picking up rocks and shells and hoping for shark teeth or some marine bone. I did find these teeth on the beach and hoping that someone (Harry ?) can identify them. Don’t have a ruler but 2-3 inches long. Thank you all
  17. Hello, usually I do all of my fossil hunting around Cory’s lane and other parts of that Formation, but I was wondering if there are any fossil sites near or around North Western Rhode Island.
  18. paleo.nath

    Any idea what this is?

    Any idea what this plant fossil is? It was found in North Attleboro as part of the Rhode Island formation. It’s pennsylvanian in age and just shy of an inch and a half.
  19. paleo.nath

    Any idea what this is?

    This fossil was found in north attleboro, part of the Rhode Island formation and the largest one is 6 inches in length.

    Found in Massachusetts beach

    Found this on Massachusetts beach, what is this?
  21. A couple days ago I spent the day at the Gay Head Cliffs at Martha’s Vineyard. This beach is famous for its vibrantly colored clay cliffs. I did not fossil hunt in the cliffs themselves because as far as I’m concerned it’s a federal offense to even touch the cliffs, but I did find a couple of clams lying along the surf that had eroded out of the cliffs. They’re pretty neat because they’re the first Miocene fossils I’ve ever found. I was hoping to find shark teeth because I had heard they could be found there but at least I found some fossils.
  22. I found this rock at my lake house in Chesterfield, MA. Not sure exactly what it is, but it definitely does not look like just a rock to me. Any help identifying it would be much appreciated! Thanks
  23. I found a few of these fossils the other day and cant figure out what it is. Let me know your thoughts. The triangle is flat and you can see corners poking out when looked at from different angles.
  24. I found this fossil along with others, looking for id! Id love to learn more about it
