    Unknown Potential Mollusk Fossil

    Recently found this fossil in Capitola Beach, California. I found an abundance of fossilized shells in the area, but this one looked dissimilar. Anyways, is it possible that this is just a disfigured shell? Or is it something else? Thanks for your time!

    Capitola Fossil ID

    Recently stumbled across this, possible, fossil in Capitola Beach, CA. I found an assortment of fossilized shells but was unsure of this find. Anyways, I’m new to fossil hunting and don’t have an exceeding amount of experience, so any knowledge regarding what this could possibly be would be helpful. Thanks!
  3. Hi, just going through some rocks I brought back from Norfolk, UK, thinking quite a few may be fossils (I didn't have long so just grabbed anything I thought looked suspiciously organic by intuition) and as it turns out I think I was quite correct in a number of cases - I think I have quite a few pieces of whale and and a few little bits of mammoth tooth. Trying to confirm this to myself led to a lot of reading and learning online about the local geological formations involved and also whale anatomy, both new topics for me which I always enjoy delving into - part of the enjoyment o

    Walnut ID verification request

    Hello gang. I have a fossil walnut described as: Cynorrea junglans, Pliocene, from Cuyck, Holland. Can someone please tell me it I have it identified correctly? Thanks in advance.
  14. Good evening everyone, long time I don't show up here (my bad, my thesis is ...well...a thesis). Almost 2 weeks ago I had the pleasure to visit with a friend the "Museo Civico di Scienze Naturali Malmerendi" located in Faenza. Even if it's not the biggest nor the most famous natural history museum of Emilia Romagna I consider it one of the best I've seen so far in Italy. Most of the speciments (Pliocene / Pleistocene) were collected in the area near the city. Mammals are well represented, maybe the most peculiar is what I think is the holotype of the only aardvark specie from our country
  15. I posted a short trip report, and included this vertebra which i can't id. It is almost perfect. I put it to a flame test because I thought perhaps it was recent, but no smell whatsoever. It is about 1"wide from wing to wing, and also about the same from the bottom to the tip of the top flange. I fell in love with it as I pulled it out of the chalky white clay from the bottom of the stream where I was screening for shark's teeth. Thanks for the help.

    Cololites? Cecum? Coprolite?

    Hello again. I have two fossils I've had labeled as coprolites and just found out they may be something else??? The smaller of the two (1st photos) is 20L x 7W x 15Hmm and was listed as "Turtle Poop" from Salmon Creek, Lewis County, Washington. The second set of photos was listed as "Dino poo from Washington" and is 45L x 20W x 28Hmm with no specific location specified. I'm thinking the 1st item very well may be Turtle Poo, but am unsure of the second item. Looks like it "could be" a Cecum or Cololite. Please let me know what you think. Thanks.

    What did I find?

    Trying to figure out what I found, can anyone help?

    Iowa River Find

    Was out last evening with my boys for an hour hunt before the sun went down. I have found many different fossils in the same area, mammoth, bison, deer, and paleo points. Today was a first for me, horse femur!

    ID confirmation request

    Good morning. I have a fossil Echinoid that I would like to verify. The information I have is Eupatagus antillarum, Pliocene. It's from the Caloosahatchee Formation, Lafayette County, Florida. Comments please.

    Descent into the Pit - Savannah, GA

    Hello Everyone, I had the honor of being invited by @markmg to a trip down into essentially ... a big hole in the ground. Woo Hoo !! A rather large gravel/sand pit that is being mined to 50-60ft ? We were not quite sure but hopefully at least as deep as the dredging that happens on the river. You know .. a play date ! .. haha Well, having just rained out my river trip on Friday I came prepared to slog through some mud. Let's just say it was lucky we didn't have a The Princess Bride (1987) moment because the water made the sand and mud a bit soft in some
