    Inherited #2 teeth?

    help identify
  4. In the late 1950's my Dad was working for the Boy Scouts of America professionally out of Alexandria, Louisiana. One of his volunteer leaders north of Alexandria was a collector of Native American artifacts, and while looking for artifacts, stumbled upon a large lower jawbone near a sandy steep nearby hillside overlooking a river. He gave my Dad the jawbone and told where he found it. We as a family went to the site and found numerous large "sharks teeth", and petrified sea shells. Dad later became friends with a oil drilling crew foreman, who gave Dad two what appears to be

    Is it real fossil or just a rock

    I have found this and i would like to know if it's a real fossil or just a rock.
  8. Dear forummembers, In my collection are two old Krantz Squalicorax pristodontus fossils, and with their old labels and old box they sure look quite interesting. I was wondering who else has old fossils from Krantz, maybe it would be nice to see other old Krantz fossils in their original boxes and with their old labels. There is also a catch to this however. The one on the right mentions it is from Ciply and is No.50, but there is no number to be found and the matrix tells us it is acutally from the Nekum Mbr of the Aachen-Maastricht-Liège area, and not the Mons bas

    Any ideas on these bones?

    Any ideas on these bones. Found them after a northeastern on beach
  12. Hello, I'd like to share my most recently acquired fossil, a Dickinsonia costata from the White Sea. It's estimated to be a little over 550 million years old and is considered among the first animal macrofossils. I think an old stromatolite may be the next fossil item on my wishlist. What is the oldest fossil in your collection? Share it here

    Bison bones?

    Hey guys, friend of mine found these bones in Calgary/Alberta while excavating near the river (about 5ish m deep). I figured the head looks like bison, but not sure about the rest of bones. And how old they might be. And anyone knows what’s that white stuff inside of one of the bones? Like calcified bone marrow? Any opinion would be greatly appreciated!!

    Could this be a dinosaur egg?

    I know virtually nothing about dinosaur eggs so bare with me. I figured this would be a good place to go to ask about an egg that I was told was an from a dinosaur. It was found in Eastern Montana by a family member. The exact location is unknown but it was in the vicinity of Glasgow, MT. Any insight would be appreciated.
  15. Aw guys I just unearthed my childhood fossil collection and have found that a lot of them have disintegrated into practically dust. Others are growing what looks like mould but is crystalline I think. Is this normal for certain mineral types? And what would you recommend I do to protect the rest?
  16. I recently found a small box of shark teeth that I obtained when I was a kid. It turns out that the labels, when translated from Spanish described the features of the fossils and not the actual species. Quite a number were not even true fossils they were mislabeled recently extinct species. Moral of this story: kids are dumb, and don’t buy fossils unless their labeled with the Latin name.

    Awesome forum! Reason I joined...

    Hi all, This is a great forum, very glad to have found it. The reason I was looking for a good source of information on fossils is: I found this today while picking weeds. The teeth appear to be deer, but the "gumline" is wood, or at least something very similar to wood, so I imagine these teeth are fairly old? I would say each row of teeth is about 5 inches long. I can take more pics if anyone likes. Anyone have an estimate of age? Sorry for name of pic, but I found these teeth fascinating and repulsive at the same time.
  19. I was sent some photo's from a friend of mine who asked if I know Genus or species? He has no info of any kind so this may be tuff? He got this stuff from a sale. Any help will be helpfull. Thank you Ron

    Found a tooth on the beach

    I found a tooth on the beach, but I am unable to identify the animal to which it belonged to. It has a width of about 1.5inches, so it is fairly large. Anyone who tries to identify it, your help will be much appreciated.

    ID bone, help

    I found this bone (rib) in a cave in Slovenia-EU. ???
  23. I didnt know where to post this? Its not prepped. It was just found, but sadly, not by me. I just wanted to show this to folks. Too cool not too. If its in the wrong place, please move it. Thanks. My best buddy goes to England every year to metal detect. He met my other buddy, Al Lang, whilst on one of those trips and they became freinds. I was just sent these photos this morning. Really really cool. I only wish that I could prep something like this. Supposed to be 19 Eurypterids on it. Just Wow!!! RB

    Old Bison Horns?

    I'm not sure, but I found what I think is the top of a bison skull with the horns. I found it in central Iowa, sitting on a sand bank in the middle of a river/creek. Could someone tell me if it is? The horns are kind of straighter like an ancient bison, could someone estimate the age and tell me if they think it is? The horn spread is just over 21 inches. It seems pretty old and almost fossilized. Thanks for any help in figuring it out. I'm really interested in what you have to say.
