  1. Oregon Coast Agates

    Coastal Mystery Fossil

    Hello all, Looking to see if anyone recognizes what this might be? Found in the Newport Area of the Central Oregon Coast under the bay bridge during low tide. It even has some unrelated barnacles growing on it! I have absolutely no idea what to make of this. Any help would be appreciated! Thank you.
  2. Oregon Coast Agates

    Agatized Fossil Coral?

    Hey! I came across this agatized fossil coral on the Central Oregon Coast not that long ago, but have absolutely no idea how to further identify it. I did see one other thread here with a guy that had something like it but they didn't have any definitive answers yet either. Any ideas? This type of thing isn't common to find here which is why I'm curious to know more. Thanks!
  3. Oregon Coast Agates

    Oregon Coast Rib ID

    So this was one of my first fossil finds from last winter on the Oregon Coast and I still need help identifying it further. It was tossed up on the rocky shoreline one day after a winter storm in the Stonefield Beach State Rec area (Central Oregon Coast). I've sent photos to the Burke Museum's ID dept along with a few other museums that's offer opinions on fossils based on photo's and they've all said its definitely a rib, and but the debate is now between a Baleen/Whalebone or the Steller's Sea Cow. I've gotten mixed opinions from several museum experts but I would like to know o

    Is this a vertebra?

    We found this in southern Oregon. Our first idea was that it was just an interesting, normal beach rock. Looking more closely at it, it appears to be bony. We’re wondering if it might be a vertebra, and if so from what type of animal? It’s approximately 3” x 4” x 1.5” (images show cm ). Also, we’d gladly take recommendations on reference resources we can use to help us narrow down IDs on our own. (But we definitely appreciate the input!) Thanks

    Gastropod? Mollusk? Or?

    Our 3rd grader found this on a beach in Coos County, OR. Her first impression is that this is a snail fossil. We’re wondering 1) what is this and 2) if this is an internal mold? There’s also an impression on one side of the matrix that looks like a separate cast. But we’re really not sure… we are having a difficult time visualizing what’s going on here. When you look closely at the spiral it does appear to have shell in there. We’ve googled a ton and compared pictures of different spiral fossils, but still aren’t sure. Thanks for any info!

    Help with ID

    Hello. My family found this on the beach in southern Oregon. We’re wondering what this fossil might be? It has texture to it that you can feel. And it’s pretty, my daughter described it as being lacy, almost like crochet stitches.

    What is this?

    Hi - we have another curious find, hoping someone here can give us some insight on what this is. We initially picked it up thinking it was a small piece of petrified wood. But upon closer inspection it looks to maybe be bone or septarian or ? The dark outer layer has a reptile-like pattern on the top side, and a smoother (more weathered?) appearance on the underside. I’ve attached a bunch of photos hoping they will help. This was found on a beach in southern Oregon. It’s about 3cm x 5 cm. Thanks…

    Fossil from the beach?

    Hello! I am new to the forum, and this is my first time posting. Today I was at Moolack Beach on the Oregon Coast (part of the Astoria formation, I think), and I found something I hadn’t seen before. I found it in the surf. Attached are multiple photographs. Please forgive the zoom/occasional blurriness. The fossil seems to be about 10cm (~4in) long, and 5.5cm (~2in) wide at the wider end. Thank you for checking it out!
  10. Hello! So I found this little specimen at the oregon coast. Specifically the beaches between Neskowin and Lincoln city. Its about an inch long and it is incredibly smooth. Is this a plant fossil? or animal? .... Just a shell fragment? Lol Any ideas or information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Oregon coast possible jellyfish?

    Found this odd concretion possibly a jellyfish. It was at washburne state park on oregon coast. It was in the sand mostly exposed thought it was trash at first a Frisbee or piece of styrofoam. But it's definitely stone, and was a week or two after our beaches were covered in a wash of jellyfish. No room to step between them even in most spots. This was found in the sand all the way at the back of the beach near the end of the sand that then hits the dune area and cliffs. I am wondering if it is of a jellyfish, maybe one that washed back further and stuck while the rest got swept back out?
  12. Hi everyone. I found this tooth on an Oregon beach near Yachats in the winter of 2015. It was in the wrack line. It has never been properly identified, although I've heard some interesting theories/guesses from saber tooth to sperm whale to walrus. It is 3 inches long. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Desmostylus teeth?

    Found these 6 months ago on central oregon coast and haven't been able to ID. A buddy came over for thanksgiving and texted some pics around to other folks. Best answer came this morning as desmostylus teeth. I never would have thought teeth, they seem more like a coral or sea anemone to my untrained eye. Looking at pictures of desmo teeth, they are mostly smaller and heavily warn down. If these are teeth, were they unused/ or unemerged from the jaw like adult teeth replacing a baby tooth? Ill put up some more pics, and any info/ confirmation is appreciated.

    Uninitiated with unknown fossil

    I have had this specimen for 30 or more years in a disorganized collection of rocks, shells and fossils. I am not sure if I found this in 1983 on the coast of Oregon, near Newport (where I also found some Pelecypods), or if it was in 1988 in a dry creek bed in DeRuyter, NY (south of Cazenovia, which is South and East of Syracuse). I thoroughly bummed that in my last and I hope final move this piece cracked and when I went to photograph it last night, it broke! Oh, and yeah, that is a golf ball I am using to show size, I couldn't find a single coin around! Photo #1 oblique angle, #2 birds
