    Ohio Fossil

    Good morning, Tank here. I hate asking, especially when I am probably completely wrong too, but I've given myself a migraine searching through other sites. I've narrowed it down to something between anything and everything thanks to Google. I found this one, and quite a few more as well, along the bank of the Tuscarawas River in New Philadelphia Ohio. Google New Phila Hog Heaven and there is the spot I've been getting them. None are exactly alike but all appear to be somehow connected by color texture and all likenesses I guess. I just haven't any idea what I'm finding and my wife calls it Ali

    Tooth? Claw? Bone? Spear tip?

    New to hunting fossils/shark teeth and found this unknown object, was thinking maybe a tooth or claw but some buddies say maybe bone carved spear tip or something. Found it in a river in southern Alabama with what they tell me is a Eocene formation on the river bank.
  3. Here is a view of my green river formation collection. Most of these fish were found at @sseth's quarry, American Fossil. First up is my prize fish, a partial Eohiodon I also have this Priscacara that I've been on and off prepping. A piece of wood from the split fish layer. A partial Phareodus from the split fish layer A (i think fairly rare) stingray barb that had come out of the matrix A Knightia that also has a partial crocodile tooth in the matrix that I had removed. And a view of the whole collection

    Mystery osteoderm

    At first I thought this was a neural bone from a turtle but now I'm wondering if it might be a mammalian osteoderm (3cm long x 1cm thick). From a north Florida river. - Zach

    Pampathere osteoderm?

    I believe this is a Holmesina osteoderm (my first), but please correct me if you think otherwise. From a north Florida river. Thanks! -Zach
  6. Greetings from a new forum member. I'm not sure whether this is even a fossil or something man-made. But I guess this is the place to find out. This was picked up on the banks of the Etobicoke Creek in suburban Toronto. The area contains a fair bit of rubble and landfill, so it's hard (for me) to say whether it's originally from the area. Thank you.
  7. I found this in the peace river in Florida. What is it?
  8. I think this may be a mastodon fossil, but I have no real idea. I found it on a beach on north island, Kankakee River, Wilmington Illinois.
  9. All were found NSR today. I am really guessing on both. I am going turtle pleural bone just from the pictures I have seen. Other than a really small mosasaur I am clueless on the verts.

    Fossil or concretion?

    Found in a river in central Ohio. The stem made me feel it might be a fossil??? It’s very hard and about the size of a tablespoon. Thanks for your help in identifying.

    Kansas river fossil

    Anyone know what these are? Found on the Kansas river. Doesn’t seem to be vertebrate as there is no hole for the spinal column. Don’t think it’s a tooth either. Any ideas?

    Oligocene cetacean bulla?

    Hello! With the extension of warmer and calmer weather in my area, I have recently taken to the dark arts of sifting gravel beds in search of fossils. Previously I have avoided this because it’s a lot of work, but I have been enjoying finding the higher quantities of fossils and other things... I know there are a couple of different exposures on this river’s banks, a marl with fresh shells and Miocene vertebrate material, and a reworked gravel layer with a bit more worn mixed material including either angustidens or ariculatus shark teeth. Pictures included. These are usually very

    North Texas Ammonites

    Hey Everyone, Ammonites are my favorite. Gastropods are a close second. I live near Rockwall, tx and hoping to find an area to get some decent ammonites. I have search, Lake Worth, Lake Texoma, several creeks and NSR. I can normally find something in NSR but they are small and broken. I have a nice one from Texoma, 14" in or so, but I see all the videos of private creeks, etc. Anyone have a spot they are willing to give some information on. Planko

    Unknown Tooth

    Found this tooth in Central Iowa in the river. We have had a drought for 2 years, and our rivers are very low, which let's my friends and I find artifacts, rocks, and fossils in the river that we normally couldn't access. We find lots of bison teeth, but this tooth seems different. Sorry, no metric ruler. 2.54 cm in an inch.

    Possible sloth maxilla?

    I found this in a SE Texas river just over a week ago. It is 16cm, 6.5 inches left to right. It looks to me like a partial maxilla with the cheek process on the left side of the photo. The "tooth" just above the center of the photo would have been 1.6 inches wide. Any thoughts? @JohnJ @garyc @Shellseeker @Harry Pristis @Lorne Ledger
  17. Hi everyone! I found this on the ground near the Root River in Minnesota which is an offshoot of the Mississippi river. Near Cushon Peak. I'd love to know if its a fossil and if so what kind. Thanks!

    Pressures and Temperatures

    Looking for information on pressures and temperatures present during typical fish fossil formation. My most recent fossil is from the Green River formation in Wyoming. I know there are some generalized guesses out there but I'm looking real numbers and a description of how those numbers were arrived at or calculated. Thank you.

    Unknown shells

    Trying to figure out what this is. Good buy?

    Unknown shells

    Need help to figure out what this is. Looks like some sort of shell but seems incomplete

    Beginner's Luck?!

    I went fossil hunting for the first time and took my 5 year old. I was SO FUN! What made it better is that we actually found a few things! I think its horn coral, possibly orthoceras. I think i found a piece of a fish on a small rock, though it's hard to see. Possibly some worm fossils. Then I found a small crinoid piece. The one with horn coral is part of a huge matrix and I want to know if anyone else sees anything. The last several pictures are all different sides of the large one. Thanks everyone for looking!

    ID help

    Hello I found this piece of sandstone along the Athabasca river just south of Fort McMurray, Alberta, Canada. Since it’s sandstone I’m assuming it came from either the Mcmurray (late barremian or early Aptian) or Grandrapids (Albian) formation although my geology skills are not great. I tried to do some googling on what it could be but I found no results since I couldn’t be specific enough since I don’t really know what I’m doing. Any ideas? I attached an image of the location for fun that I took a while before I found the rock. I found it to the right of the creek tha
  24. Hello! I went fossil hunting with my brother and found a tooth shaped cone! We live in rock county of Luverne Minnesota, about 30 minutes away from Sioux Falls South Dakota. We went to a local river nearby that has a sandy riverbank with lots of different kinds of rocks. We have found a lot of small fossils of shells and some coral-like shapes. I found it near the water where it likely washed up. I assumed it was maybe a coral piece because I don’t know anything about teeth. But Google shows a lot of similar images from both teeth and some coral. I’m just not sure how to go about narrowing dow

    Strange little find

    Hi all, This is a tiny little find from a creek here in Florida. It could be nothing more than a polished bit of fossilized bone with some coincidental marks, but the markings are odd to me. I haven’t found bone pieces with such symmetrical and aligned cuts like this before. I was wondering if anyone has any ideas what this may be?
