  1. Hi!!! I found these today on the beach I could use some help identifying. Please let me know your thoughts. There are three sets of teeth and I took pictures of both sides.
  2. Hi hoping that someone can help me identify this tooth I found at the western- super- mare beach, Bristol, U.K. (google location (51.3379019, -2.9861150). I can see it looks like a tooth but as it was in salt water the enamel has disappeared. It is hollowed out too and has a crack at the bottom, is about 1 inch long. I would love to know what animal it came from, my thoughts are a crocodile tooth and if so can anyone tell me what species? the tide was very low so walked through a lot of muddy sand lol must of been 2 miles into the beach towards the ocean.

    Found on the beach in North Carolina

    I found this rock with a shell imprint on the beach in North Carolina. I have searched around on the Internet but I’ve not been able to find anything quite like it. I find it interesting because it appears to not only be the imprint of a conical shell but a cross-section of the shell itself because of the sharp contrasted color and outlines. Although it appears black in the picture the rock is actually a deep brown color and was clearly once very jagged but has been smoothed. Any help identifying the rock and the shell would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
  4. Found this 2” rock on Fort Morgan beach (gulf side). It has no texture, but appears to have tiny possible fish bones on it?

    Found in Southern Indiana

    My husband and I found this in southern Indiana today and neither of us have any idea what it is.

    Need Help IDing this tooth

    Hey everyone, new here and was hoping for some help figuring what it is I've found. Found this at the beach yesterday in the water. New Brunswick on the ocean. Really hope you can help me identify this? Cheers everyone!!!

    I Need Help Identifying

    I need help identifying these fossils I’m not sure what they are I’ve had these since I was 8 so I never got around to finding out
  8. Found almost fully submerged in the wet sand beneath the waves of Holden Beach. It was found within newly replenished sand from dredging that’s occurring currently a couple miles off the coast. Very heavy and dense(1.257kg), porous of course and it’s not perfectly symmetrical at any angle I view it from. I’d guess some whale bone but I know very little about fossils. There’s also tens of thousands of Hardouinia Mortonis (PeeDee Cretaceous) coming up through the dredge pipes if that helps in any way. Longest length ≈ 15cm Longest width ≈ 10cm Longest depth/height ≈ 8cm Narrowe
  9. Alright family, majority of my life as a child I used to be apart of a ranch as a worker than a guide with my brother and father. The name of the Ranch before Mr. Taylor died was the the Double TT Ranch located 5 mile down the road for the YO ranch in mountain home TX, Mr. Taylor was our boss and owner of the ranch and gave us permission to take rocks and shedded antler, one of the benefits of working on the ranch forever. during our time here before the ranch was sold we used to find tons of these Crystallized Rocks at different parts of the ranch I have buckets and buckets of them. now that

    Found Skull encased in rock!

    I' m a local photographer in Flagler Beach, FL. I frequent a local beach almost daily. I have come across quite an interesting find. Currently due to stormy weather causing rough waves and some higher than normal tides the rocks have been sliding down into the ocean and breaking apart. Well a wonderful treasure was exposed in one of the rocks. A skull. There is also a tooth and what looks to be bone vertebrate. I am in the process of excavating currently but would love to know who this skull belongs to. Any help is appreciated!!

    Bone identity?

    Found this bone washed up on the shore of Varadero Cuba. 8" long. Any idea what it belongs to?

    Holden Beach Artifact ID?

    Found on Holden Beach, North Carolina along the shoreline. The beach is currently being dredged and renourished from a couple miles off the coast and it’s possible this item came through the dredges. Has a strange webbing like pattern throughout which is why I kept it. Appears to be pourous and has weight but is not super heavy for its size. Is this just a rock or something else?

    Miscellaneous Bones

    All found along the beaches anywhere between Onslow Beach and Holden Beach, North Carolina. If you would like more pictures of anything please let me know, thanks. The shark tooth is strange to me because I thought it was a fragment but the serrations on both edges make it seem otherwise like a newly grown tooth? I have plenty of shark teeth and no problem identifying them but this one stumps me. As far as number three goes, I thought it was a piece of turtle shell but my geology professor thought it may be a very worn tooth, however he wasn’t sure.
  14. Hi, I am a real novice here. I was given several sharks teeth collected on northeast Florida beaches. I am trying to identify them to create a small 'show and tell' for beach goers to be able to ID the teeth they find on the beach. I am now totally confused as some say they are Mako as there are no nibs but there are several examples of Sand Tiger Sharks that have no nibs. I found this forum and am hoping you can help. Also I have no idea what the piece in the middle is. I am assuming it is a broken piece from maybe Tiger Shark? Thanks from a Novice trying my b

    Can anyone identify this fossil?

    Hi! I was out looking around the local area and happen across this fossil. It's anyone able to identify what exactly it is I found? Thanks in advance.
  16. I’m not sure where this was found. Does anybody have an idea of what it might be?….
  17. Garry Davey

    Interested to know what we found

    Hi, can anyone help please with what this? We found it on a beach in Suffolk England (North Sea). Its vey light (74g) for its size. Sorry if I've posted on the wrong forum or my photos aren't good enough. Any information about what it is would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks Garry .
  18. Found this bone fragment after a storm in folly beach sc. And help identifying what animal it came from is much appreciated.
  19. Caroboneferous

    Interesting piece? Coral?

    I found this piece outside Kansas City Missouri on the Missouri River. Does anyone have an idea what it could be, looks sort of like coral, haven’t come across this before.

    My collection cabinet

    This is my whole collection through the past 6-ish years. It's a mix of fossils, minerals, and historical things. I don't I have a lot of knowledge on the specifics on the stuff I have, I just find them all really cool. Wanted to share it somewhere, and wound up here. Hope you like! feel free to ask questions
  21. Caroboneferous

    Interesting fossil, any ideas?

    I found this piece on the Missouri River outside of Kansas City, MO. I haven’t really come across something exactly like this, any ideas? coral? Some kind of segmented worm?
  22. Caroboneferous

    Cylinder / rod shaped fossil

    I found this weird fossil, it was sticking out of a large Boulder of limestone, I removed it. I can’t really make sense of it? Carboniferous fossils were found in the area, this was found on the Missouri River just outside Kansas City.
  23. Caroboneferous

    Plant Fossil?

    Found this piece next to a deposit of Carboniferous fossils in Kansas City. It was found next to a shale deposit that had plant fossils. I’m just curious what it is? Plant fossil? Something else? pictures attached:
  24. Caroboneferous

    Broken shell?

    I found this in Kansas City area. It was close to some Carboniferous fossils. I’m not sure exactly what I’m looking at here, are these broken shell fragments? Plants?
