    Zigzag 'toothed' oyster

    Hi everyone, Collected this fossil a while ago in or around Cap Gris-Nez, France, and was curious about what it exactly it is. it's about 8.5 cm. Thanks in advance.
  3. Thanks for any help putting species IDs on these marine fossils from Magoito Beach, Portugal. My best guesses are as follows: 1-12) Oysters, unsure of species 13-20) Clams, original material and steinkerns. 13, 16 and 19 are quite "tall", others rather flat. 21, 22) ?? Possibly a coral? Or crinoid fragments or a trace fossil? 23, 24) smaller oyster pieces 25) a mussel? 26-29) gastropods 30) shark tooth - possibly goblin shark? Sadly fragmented, but has distinctive pair of lobes at the root midline 31) ?? intriguing paddle-shaped structure with a distinctive mid-line

    Curious Oyster?

    Someone else mentioned finding oyster fossils in the SF East Bay area CA, What you you guys think of this one? Area is a creek bed draining a diverse ranging from Miocene to Jurassic and in between. Thanks in advance for lending your experience and knowledge to hep me I.D. fossils.
  5. Hi all, not sure if anyone can help with this. A long time ago (like 35 plus years) I went on a fossil hunt. I was little but believe it was somewhere in New York. We went for a hike in palisades on the same day. We picked these oyster shells and were under the impression ever since that they’re fossilized. They are hard and heavy. I would value any input anyone may have about them. Thanks in advance.

    A rare Saturday Hunt

    Went hunting with a friend yesterday on the Peace River. Saturday is unusual for me because of increased river traffic on the weekends. Since I can hunt any weekday, I tend to avoid weekends. We were prospecting, looking for gravel. As always interesting finds: Not too many , but interesting .. One location had agatized shell: I guess this might be the equivalent of a RucksPit Calcite Clam, but this half bivalve is pretty complete and clearly an oyster. I am not positive on the creation process but think I ought to name it a silicafied Oyster. I would like to find more of thi
  7. Anyone know the species or genus of these?
  8. •Petrified Oyster With Crystalized Pearl• Found Santa Fe Trail Kansas City Missouri, Fossil Oyster Blister Pearl, What's it Called Proper? Info?
  9. Found in Grayson formation Tarrant co, have searched and searched and finally came across Pseudoperna congesta, if that's not what it is I give up . Can't tell what they were attached to, assuming it's a mineral encrusting them? Or are they encrusting the mineral? My guess is it's some form of iron oxide, perhaps magnetite? Scale is cm.
  10. Looking for some help on this shell specimen. It was part of a large rock and mineral collection I acquired not long ago but unlike the rocks and minerals this was not labeled, so I have no location info to offer. Thx in advance.
  11. Hi guys, I bought this fossil in a fossil store as trigonia, seems to me More líke a crassostraea fossil or oyster fossil. I bought It at baja California, México. If More angles are needed let me know. Could anyone advice please Where can i look for fossil species of this kind to know the species? Thank You!

    4 Mosasaur Verts in a Day! Austin TX

    With the end of the semester approaching, school has picked up and I have been too busy to embark on many adventures. When my schedule finally cleared up one afternoon following a brief rain in Austin, I jumped at the opportunity to do a bit of exploring. One of my goals right now is to check out new parts of the creek I hunt on. Scanning through my list of potential spots, I decided to try and be the first one out to a very promising location. Like my previous hunts, this place ran through the Ozan formation, so my expectations were set on some nice Cretaceous specimens as well as the usual n
  13. My family and I love to explore creeks on the weekends. We've found many fossilized oyster shells before, but this is by far the largest specimen to date.

    Fused Oysters

    From the album: Delaware Fossils

    Two Exogyra cancellata shells from the Cretaceous spoils of Reedy Point, Delaware. Although Exogyras typically detached themselves from their anchorage while still very small - about 2-3 cm - these two animals continued to live and grow together. The lower valve is about 10 cm on the long axis.

    Oyster Spat?

    I've probably looked at thousands of oysters and have seen them attached to each other but can't recall seeing any at this stage assuming that's what it is. While researching came across a new term, oyster splat, the name given to free floating larvea after they reach the stage of landing and attaching to something. Given this looks like a tiny transparent oyster would this be splat? Would different species attach to each other? Can't recall ever seeing that either. It must have been a long hard day for the person assigned the task of naming them splat.

    Texas NSR fossils, need help

    OK, I posted about going to the North Sulphur River on Friday (Hwy 24 bridge), and now I could use some help to identify some of these specimens. I know these are oysters, but in this first photo of 12, these shells all look different. 1) Are they all different species, or just variations of the same species? Photo #1: 2) Is this a clam, or an oyster? Photos #2a, 2b, 2c, 2d 3) Clam, oyster, other bivalve, or just a rock? Photos #3a, 3b: 4) What about the red one? Clam, oyster, bivalve, o

    Ceratostreon Species

    This may be a very Texas-centric post. Hopefully my fellow Texans will be able to help. I am sorting out specimens from the Walnut Formation here in Austin. These particular fossils were collected from the Bee Cave Member. The Walnut is part of the Fredericksburg Group and the age is Albian (Lower Cretaceous). There are three species of the oyster Ceratostreon known from our local rocks: C. texanum (Roemer), C. weatherfordensis (Cragin) & C.hilli (Cragin). If anyone is more familiar with these and can confirm my tentative identification I would be grateful. So th
