  1. First trip fossil hunting. Mix of vertibrate fossil, unidentified trace fossils, and pretty rocks (hard to tell from from the photo). Second batch is from Caparica, Miocene, including shark teeth (probably maku). Anyone want to help ID some?

    Megalodon tooth

    From the album: Shark Fossil collection

    Beautiful Meg tooth with razor sharp serrations.

    seed pod

    found this on the beach near Lourhina, Portugal. Fossils in the Lourhina Formation are late Jurassic. This looks like a small walnut but the unusual shape with a cleft in the face isn't like any walnut. I can't find it in fossil botanical books.

    Found fossilized shark tooth?

    Hello everyone, Some days ago I was walking along a beach in the Algarve region of Portugal and while looking for shells and mollusc fossils, I found what I believe to be a fossilized shark tooth. I have never found any fossils of elasmobranchs in this place or otherwise so I have no idea what species it could be. This specimen was found in a beach with no rocky outcrops ( except sand heheh ), so I don´t really know what geologic time frame it falls into. Any help with id or with online resources for shark teeth identification is greatly appreciated.

    broken Cretaceous shark tooth

    Sadly, this tooth was broken in several places when I found it at the foot of a Cretaceous fossil cliff on the coast of Portugal. I imagine a precise ID is impossible, but am grateful for any taxonomic information that can be inferred. Red asterisks mark a doublet of bumps in the middle of the root.
  7. Is this spatula-shaped item a fossil? Perhaps a coral or bryozoan? From a Cretaceous fossil cliff on the coast of Portugal. Matrix is limestone. Item apparently has two elements, 1) a flattened, darker "blade" that widens from end to the other, and 2) a lighter, roughly cylindrical element that runs down the middle. A mold of this cylindrical element seems to extend beyond where it ends.

    Found two fossils

    Good evening everyone. I found two fossils in Portugal . Can anyone identify please. Thank you
  9. 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
  10. Hey everyone! Im currently in Peniche, Portugal and I’ve been doing a little research and found that the Lourinhã formation is nearby. I went to the museum today in Lourinha town and saw some of the amazing finds that’s have come out of this formation! Can anyone recommend the best beaches to go to to fossil hunt? Anything specific I should be looking out for? Basically any advice would be amazing! Thanks
  11. Hello together. on a past Holiday I stumbled upon an interesting place at the coast of southern Portugal. On top of the cliffs there was something that looked like desert pavement to me, including ventifacts, not typical for the modern climate of the region, so maybe a re-opened facies? About 2-3 meters below that in a gully we found a lot of coral fragments looking like remnants of a fossil reef. Sadly I did not have a camera with me and can only show you some samples I picked up. Can someone give me an ID for the corals and an age estimate? Geological map shows spots of q
  12. Hello, I'm curious if someone can help with this find. We went to look at the dinosaur footprints in Praia Grande, in Colares Portugal. While at the beach we found this possible fossil. I'm really wondering if someone can confirm if it is a bone? I did the lick test and it did seem to have some stick to it. Thank you for your time!

    Various sponges

    Hi, i recently received those very nice sponges from @badeend. I asse they're all Hexactinellids. I know identfying sponges even when you have them un grand is a hard thing to do. Any help to try a more precise ID is greatly welcome. Here is the number1, a glass sponges ? Kimmeridgian, Kalberbeg, Netherlands

  24. I recently purchased a Theropoda indet. tooth from the Lourinhã Formation of Lourinhã, Portugal. I wasn't expecting much initially since it looked like an incomplete tooth and the seller tends to go the safe route with their IDs if it's too vague. But, the serration count was similar to that of the Marshosaurus-like megalosaurid teeth based on @Troodon's guide on the dinosaurs of Portugal. Maybe it's just wishful thinking, but I wanted to see if anyone else had some input before I slap that good old theropoda indet. label on the display. The distal serrations is split d
