    Is this a fossil?

    hey all, im new to this so dont rip me up to hard. I found this odd shaped rock in a New Brunswick river famous for being the location where they found a mastodon fossil in 1939. It stood out to me because it wasn't round like all the other river rocks in the water, i was thinking it kind of looks like petrified wood, but i wouldn't know. any help would be appreciated IMG_4593.mov

    Molars from the Kaw River?

    Found these on different sand banks along the Kansas (Kaw) River east of Lawrence. They are definitely fossils, and I believe they are some sort of tooth or molar, but I am no expert. Any ideas or positive ids appreciated! ps: this is my first post measured in metric in photos

    Rocks from British Columbia

    Since the group was so helpful with this post, I thought I would ask again with a couple of rock finds from last week's fishing trip on the Flathead River in south eastern British Columbia. I found several rocks that looked like these two in the next three pics. This rock is about 12" long and the next two pics are the same rock from different angles. The "shards" in the rock caught my attention. Are they fossils? This is a different rock from the previous one, but it had the same type of shards. This next rock contains w

    Any ideas?

    Hi there, Made an account to help with ID. I found this along the river Thames, London, UK at work. Rock nerd friend has never seen anything like it, but thinks something - a barnacle? - in some flint. A "flint inclusion in cortex" she said. Whole rock is ~3x5cm. The cool bit is maybe 1cm in diameter. Anyone seen one of these before? Thanks

    Unsure if this is a fossil or not.

    I found this rock (far Southwestern Minnesota) by a river in a pile of rocks placed their by the city. It’s possible it just came from construction and isn’t a fossil at all. But it’s also possible it was naturally occurring in the river as it was down near the water and the river has been a lot lower than normal. I have zero expertise with fossils, and was wondering if anyone recognized this as something. The “fossil” has 9 identifiable segments of concave rectangles all the same width and length, that curve around the rock. Any comments are appreciated!

    Judith River #2 Claw???

    Is this a claw or something else?

    Huge Great White

    It’s been a long time since I’ve posted here! But these teeth definitely deserve to be seen! These are from a trip about a year or two ago. We were diving a river in Eastern North Carolina when I came across this Great White Monster! Along with some smaller whites and makos. I have a GoPro video of finding it, and in the murky water my brother passes right over it with his flashlight. Lucky me! It’s by far the largest GW I have, and have ever seen in person. Needless to say I was ecstatic about this entire trip. Maybe one day I’ll have another trip that turns out this productive!

    Some Peace River finds

    I found these in the peace River, I know the first one is a tooth from some mammal but don’t know what. Second I believe is a porcupine blowfish mouth plate? The third I think is part of a tooth but have no idea from what? Lastly I was wondering if anyone knew what bone fragment it’s from, it’s very smooth on one side.

    Minnesota Whatz't Needs ID

    Found this on a river gravel bar today and southern Minnesota. The river has both Cretaceous and glacial deposits. This however looks modern - but what is it?
  10. Hi All! I had the chance to head out last Sunday with my kid and again for a few hours yesterday solo - both times we came back with very heavy backpacks. It’s not easy collecting, but neither of us mind the army crawl in the underbrush. We’re still learning what to take and what to leave - just my 3rd and 4th trip there (thanks to fellow member and friend tom_mo for showing us the ropes and getting me addicted!!) We look for the small water created gully’s in the steep hills, lots of these have been collected over the years but just as many have not it seems. Or maybe the good coll
  11. I recently went camping near Petersburg, WV. And, while in the river, I found this fossil on the bank. I can see shells and some other possible fossil formations, but I don't know much about fossils or rocks and would like any information or help to ID this. If you would like more pictures or angles, let me know. Note: Images taken from Canon DSLR and compressed to ~19mb from ~30mb.

    Puerto Rico Fossil

    Hey yall, this is my first time posting on the forums. Found this digging in a river in the San Sebastian formation in Puerto Rico. This object has a thin shell that i can able to scrape back with my nail and a knife. I stopped peeling it back because I don't know what it is and don't want to damage it. Any ideas? Thanks, Mike

    Tooth or Tusk?

    Found by a friend on a Southern Minnesotan river gravel bar. Sediments in the area include everything both glacial till deposits and cretaceous sea mudstone and sandstones. although, I suspect this is modern.
  14. I can clearly see some sort of microfilaments inside but asides from that I'm stumped. Found North of edmonton eroding into the river. Any thoughts?

    Bison or Cow Molar?

    I was on a hike with my boyfriend yesterday along a lake in Central Alberta, Canada when we came across this bone in the river. I know some of the discourse of using the stylid as an identification tool to differentiate between cows and bison but I can’t seem to figure this one out! Please let me know!

    I'm interested in a few of these turtle fossils supposedly found in the Neuse river in North Carolina. They are also labeled as Cretaceous. Do you think this is accurate or could they be from another age and or locality?

    Bone fossil

    I have found this thing next to the one small mountain river in Serbia. It looks like a bone, but feels like a stone. Is this a fossil?
  19. This area is so full of shale or slate and it’s amazing! Well it’s amazing to me anyway!! So I thought I’d take a few pics to share with others. There are much larger slabs of this same rock farther down the river but I didn’t venture down there today. The pieces there are as large as the length of cars and bigger. Hope you enjoy!

    ID help requested

    Hi there, new member and not a fossil hunter per se, but came across these fossils embedded in a rock while fishing in Sept, 2022. The rock was in the upper Elk River of the Easy Kootenay region of BC. The rock was underwater and too large too move, so I left it where it was a got a picture of the fossils as best as I could. Interested in knowing if the embedded fossils have a name. Thanks!
  21. Hello all, I found these items last week along the Arkansas River in NE Oklahoma. I was curious on the age and ID of some of the bones and fossils or if they are even fossils. Thank you.

    Rock or petrified toe???

    My dad found this rock in the Vermillion River in Illinois last weekend during a camping trip. While my dad insists it's a petrified toe or a toe that was possibly covered in mud then compressed (or something of the like???? I'm not quite sure...), I personally think it's just a rock. Can someone please help officially determine what exactly it is? Thank you! -Abby

    What animal? How old?

    Hi, I'm brand new here. I enjoy being out in nature and collecting bones and rocks I find. Just the other day I found this jaw bone on the banks of a creek near my house in El Dorado County California. It looks to be the size of a cow or horse jaw. I would love to know what animal you all think it is from and especially how old it looks. The blueish color of the teeth has me really intrigued. Thanks for any ideas.

    Finds from North Sulphur River

    Hello, everyone! I went hunting along the North Sulphur River yesterday (before today’s nasty weather), and I found some fossils and what I am almost positive is an artifact. Could someone please help with IDs, if possible? Pictures #1 and #2 are of the same bone; I found the circular striations in the 2nd picture particularly intriguing. #7 (the artifact) is broken at the base and is fairly thick at the point where it is broken.

    Fossil? Found in middle TN

    Family was excited to find this in middle tennessee in what I’m assuming was a limestone river bed. Any input what it might be? we can’t decide if it’s a tire track or something more exciting.
