  1. Today, I found one small piece of fossil-like thing in a sandstone rock. I found it in a valley, where there is one small river with rocks which contain many brachiopods, coral, favosites fossils. But this one is different, it is in one piece of soft sandstone rock, others are in harder rocks. Western boarder of the great basin of Sichuan, China. petal_20221129_222903.mp4

    Fossil ID Eastern Oregon

    Hello all, I found this in a river near John Day, which is near the John Day Fossil beds. I have zero information as I am a total newbie to all this, but I am very excited! I’ve run it under the water to see it better. It is roughly 4 in/10cm from one end of the white part to the other end of the white part. If you look at the top of the back, there looks to be more of the white just barely showing a ridge. Any help is appreciated!

    Eocene Green River Formation Unknown

    This is from the Eocene Parachute Creek Member of the Green River Formation in Utah. Any suggestions or anyone know if anything similar has been found?

    Black bone from river (Vistula)

    Hi guys! Just Found it in a riverside (Vistula) where currents are opposite to the direction of the river's flow. Photo taken after rinsing and removing the stone that got stuck in the hole. I wonder how old the bone can be and what animal it belonged to? Location: Toruń, Poland

    Western NY Fossil ID

    Brought my kids to explore a local creek. Found this along the banks. It's a bone. I'm just unsure from what and the approximate dating. Approximately 2.5 inches. Thank you in advance!

    Newbie looking for assistance

    Hi all, very excited to join the forum! I'm chiming in from west Feliciana parish, Louisiana and I'm very close to the Mississippi River. It's low now, and I love to walk the low water banks and see what has turned up. This go round I found a partial tooth, and I'm thinking it is fossilized, maybe Pleistocene? I'm hoping someone can help... Pecarry is the most likely candidate to me thus far. It's about the size of a thumbnail fyi
  8. I just got back from a trip to Kansas where I found a tooth in the Ninnescah River outside of Wichita. I first thought it was a cow or buffalo but now after researching it believe that it looks more like a Woolly Rhino tooth. Thoughts?

    Fossil ID request!

    Hello all Apologies in advance for the potentially stupid question, but I promised my 9 year old (fossil hunter/general geology fan) son that I'd get to the bottom of this! During a river walk today, we came across an exposed rock that had some weird line patterning on it, that does admittedly look a little fossil-y. However, elsewhere on the rock there are lots more of these patterns in more random formations, so while I'd love it to be a little more interesting, I suspect it's just some unusual rock form. Anyway, you lot are the experts, so please advise!

    Can’t identify Shark Tooth

    Hello! I have found what I believe to be shark tooth (I am unsure if it is) nearby a river in south central Indiana and need help identifying it. This is the first fossil I have ever found so I am pretty new to this. The photos are of the same tooth from different angles.

    Help ID?

    Found yesterday in the Kansas River. I'm thinking it's probably just a button buck skull cap. Although I really want it to be from an antilocaprid. But I thought its worth the post for me because it's my first part of a skull Ive ever found in the river. But I can't distinguish personally. I'm not the best at telling Kansas river modern stained bones from permineralized bones sometimes too, and I understand if it's unidentifiable beyond cervid even. Thanks
  12. A few years ago, I found a fossilized something on the Beach at Cape Henlopen. It was embedded in quartz. It looked kinda like a belemnite, but the wrong material. I was told by Plax that it was much older than our cretaceous belemnites. I tucked it into a spot on the shelf and wondered about it. Since then I have seen a few posts here and there from folks in NJ finding nice little paleozoic pieces on their side of the bay as well. This summer, I made it a mission to explore the Delaware beaches and see what I could find and how far north they went. I began at the cape and worked m

    Mammal tooth-what kind?

    Found in the peace river Florida. Any idea of the animal? If so, what type of tooth? Molar perhaps?
  14. Would like help identifying what appears to be fossilized bone. Could not get accurate measurements in photos but joint piece is approx. 1.5 inches wide. Overall size is approx. 6 inches width X 4.5 inches length. Thickness is about .5 inches and flairs into a flat bottom approx. 1 inch wide. Piece was discovered by friend along Potomac River between Maryland and West Virginia, USA. Any help in identifying type of bone or possible species/type of animal would be great. Any information or guesses is appreciated.

    Peace River Tooth! Help with ID

    Any idea on type of tooth? From peace river Florida
  18. I want to go back to Peace River but I don't want to do the normal canoe outpost thing this time. I want to take a kayak south of Zolfo springs were the river gets bendy, shallow, and remote. I don't have a kayak so I'm wondering if anyone has any recommendations for where I can rent one or if they want a hunting buddy for the second week of May.
  19. Could anyone here help educate me on what I found? I am guessing that the objects in this river rock are either aquatic plant parts of some sort, or terrestrial plant seeds. Just two wild guesses on my part. I never find fossils in this river, so I was surprised when I spotted it. Any help would be appreciated. - Thanks!

    Another one from the west branch of the Trinity River, in north central Texas. Is there enough to ID it further ?

    Porous object

    Having played around old equipment all my life, I think I know what this is, but it just looks so much like a fossil I had to check. Hint: It fails a tap test.

    Siphuncle ?

    This was found in the west branch of the Trinity River in north central Texas. It's just a hunch, could this be a piece of siphuncle from a large ammonite ?

    I was having fun challenging a Canadien goose to a honking contest near the west branch of the Trinity River in north central Texas when I almost unconsciously noticed this in the sand.

    Sponge this time

    This was found in the west branch of the Trinity River in Arlington, TX. I'm thinking this one has to be a sponge. (and hoping someone agrees this time. )
