    Mystery Florida Fossil. Fish?

    I know the pics aren't great, but I'm hoping someone can tell me what this is. It is from Florida. It is pretty tiny, but I thought maybe the design of it could help someone identify it.

    Possible Mammoth Tooth?

    I'm really not that sure on what this fossil from Florida could be. I thought it might be something interesting with the line going through it.

    Bay Point Mystery

    I found this mystery fossil eroding out of the Bay Point Formation at a site near Point Loma, San Diego, California in a very densely packed shell layer. I thought it was just an interesting shell fragment when I picked it up, but realized it was something else during prep. I am absolutely clueless to what it is. Any ideas? (Sorry for the bad lighting, I couldn’t get it to be any better.) Top view Bottom View Side View

    Unknown NJ Triassic Partial Something?

    This here is a very odd partial fossilized something from the Upper Triassic Lockatong Formation of New Jersey. Not to sure what to make of it, it has a dark core atop with whiteish suggestive shapes. Not sure if this is bone, coprolite, plant or what not. Interested in hearing other opinions.

    Possible mudcrack?

    Found this on a rocky beach in Southern California and have no clue what it could be. Both sides are almost Ying yang like. Let me know if you have any clues!

    Mystery Theropod Tooth

    Hi, I received this teeth recently from another forum member and was wondering what others think. These teeth were acquired at a German Fossil Show and were apparently found near the Chinese border. I think they look kinda like Carch teeth. Let me know what you think. The first tooth is 1.1 in long and the base is .3 wide The second tooth is 1.22 long and the base is .5 wide

    The U-Dig Shale Mystery.

    Hi All, Recently I purchased some Shale from U-Dig, UT. The trilobites inside were super swell, but one of the more interesting finds was this...thing... It appears to be a circular mass, with some veins or something radiating from the center. My hopeful brain began to think it could be a jellyfish, though realistically it is highly unlikely, and I've never heard of anything like that being preserved in the shale from U-dig. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated, as I am at an ABSOLUTE loss. Thanks, -Snag

    Mystery micro(ish)-fossils

    Hi all, Need some help with this ID! I found this fossil years ago on a beach in eastern North Carolina and it's been a mystery to me since. The best answer I could come up with is that these might be some kind of foraminifera (maybe of the fusulinid variety, though these don't seem to have the tapering at either end), but I'm not sure how to go about researching other possibilities. My camera has a tough time with close-up pics, so this is probably as much resolution as I can get. Thanks in advance for the help!

    Unknown item

    I found something but I have no clue. Can someone help me out? It’s a hard rock.
  10. I've recently been snooping around Early Jurassic Towaco formation exposures in Northern New Jersey. Although I didn't find much, I found this which looks like it could be something but I can't tell what it is. Any help would be great. Thanks!

    Mystery Cretaceous Tooth New Jersey NJ

    Hello everyone, found this mysterious tooth in a cretaceous stream in New Jersey. Haven't come across any similar or anything I can really compare it to, plus its kinda worn. Which doesn't help but the leaf-like shape alone is very interesting, hopefully this one can be figured out.

    Possible Soft Tissue fossil?

    No idea really what I have. Anybody have any advice or info? Thanks!
  13. Receiving this gorgeous but mysterious specimen is from Upper Pennsylvanian limestone dated around 290-300 million years ago from somewhere around Kansas City. Looks like a tooth to me and my best guess would be orodus? But I have little experience with Pennsylvanian shark teeth in general and especially from this area, also cannot find a comparison elsewhere online. Any help will be appreciated.

  15. This bone was recovered from the banks of a creek full of Cretaceous fossils in Montgomery, AL. All images are different views of the same object. Any ideas?

    Unknown Acquisition

    I bought a small fossil collection that contained several Erismatopterus levatus and it also contained several unidentifiable and unlabeled items, in particular this piece. It reminds me almost of a placoderm skull plate, but I honestly don't have any idea. There's area of denticles on the side of the fossil.

    Poteau Library

    Found this oddity while cleaning underbrush at our WPA library in Poteau, OK. The area is Pennsylvanian in age but I’m not sure this isn’t geologic or relic. Any thoughts?
  20. We split open this rock yesterday and it has a mirror image of two things I am not sure of. #1 I see some shell... #2 Vegetation?

    Are these Crinoid Stem?

    These were found in the same place, in black shale, in West Virginia. Are these both crinoid stem? Thank you for your help!

    Unusual Markings Shark Tooth

    Hi, This question is between categories. Has anyone seen markings (numbers) on a shark tooth like this? I have tried to wipe them off with acetone, and they will not come off. Any idea how they were applied or how to remove them?

    Mystery find

    Hello everyone. Please help me identify this beautiful piece of history before my dog gets hold of it and buries it in my back yard.....100,000 years from now some future archaeologist will be like “ very interesting - quite obviously a dinosaur fossil but very strange how it lies next to a chicken bone a tennis ball and a plastic object with the word Chukkit stamped on it....must have been some sort of early human ritual.” This fossil measures 6 X 6 inches wide by 4 inches deep. Any information on this would be greatly appreciated - I’m a newbie here. When I purchased this it did not c

    Coprolite? Fossilized nut?

    Hello all. I’ve been carrying this specimen for so long now (probably 25 years or more) I don’t remember where I picked it up. Possibly in Monongalia County, West Virginia or Washington County, Ohio. It is reddish brown in color and weighs 53 grams. It seems to be two things mashed together with distinct outer “crusts” and an inner “marrow “. Any help would be much appreciated.

    Crassostrea??

    So I only have the faintest idea of what this could be. I vote for the oyster crassostrea since that's what I was told. But now someone told me it was a rudist and im a bit confused. Could it be cretaceous?
