    Rookie / Newbie guidance

    Hi - I am not sure what I am looking at or if I should bother with these types of finds. Could anyone shed some light and provide direction? I am finding a lot of "large rocks" like this in small dried-up basins between hills. The area is close to the Harpeth River in Nashville, TN. Thanks for any advice in advance. My daughter and I like to go exploring and want to guide her in what we are finding.
  2. Hello! I'm pretty new to fossil hunting and I've been able to ID a few specimens but I'm having trouble with these. The ones here are from a couple trips to Big Brook in NJ. I tried my best to take good photos (when will smartphones come with a macro lens??). 1 looks like it could be a tooth or just a rock 2 seems to be porus (I did the tounge test) 3 looks like a jaw or just a rock 4 seems like it could maybe part of a turtle shell? 5 is definitely a vertebra, but I'm not sure from what 7 seem to be teeth or claws 8 is definitely a tooth but im not sure fro

    Shark tooth

    Hi everyone, I am going to go with a sure thing as I need I pick me up. I found this at Shark River NJ. I can’t find anything the resembles it in any of the Fossil Sheets available from the area on the web. It has tiny serrations Thanks as always for your help

    What might this be?

    Hello, any ideas what this may be? I know the odds from what I have researched but there are way too many variables for a Newbie. It was collected at Colts Neck, NJ from a riverbed. I have read the site produces late cretaceous fossils. upon close inspection it does seem to have pores and texture on the outer layer but does not match any of ID pictures I could find as far as pattern goes.

    What is this?

    I am a complete novice but have always had an interest in what I can find along creeks such as arrowheads. I saw this and thought it looked like a petrified vertebrae. It is about 1.25 in. thick and about 2X3 inches across. Am I right? How old might this be? Thanks very much for allowing me to post here.

    Help to identify - Manchester, UK

    Was hoping someone could tell me what this is. I found it near a landslide at my local river Manchester UK, it really looks like some kind of petrified wasp nest to me, it's rock hard and maybe it could be some kind of shell? Any help appreciated thanks.

    I need help with a tooth

    Today I was walking up a small stream in western Minnesota and I grabbed a large rock to toss and under it was this thing that kinda looked like a tooth. I emailed it to my paleontologist friend and while he couldn’t identify it (he specializes is Texas fauna and actually identified a Patelodus tooth for me last month) he found it interesting. I found this forum and knew it was the next best place to try. I have no expectations and I appreciate any and all thoughts. I’ve followed the topic and I’m happy to answer any questions. Thanks -Jeff IMG_
  8. Hello! So I found these three fossils and was curious to know about them... one i think is to be a bryozoan branch the tooth i believe to be a cow tooth not sure how old it may be and the last one is a type of small brachiopod its super tiny but again I don't know much about fossils yet but I am ready to learn more ! So if any one knows anything about these fossils that'd be a great help! First 6 pictures are from the riverbed and the last two are from the beach in Lübeck,Germany Thanks!

    fleshy looking fossil?

    Hi everyone! Would anyone be able to identify this pattern? To me it looks almost fleshy, and I cannot find any similar images online. Place found: Austrian Alpine region; riverbed Any clues would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks everyone! The bottle cap is a standard bottle cap:)

    Fossil? Found in St. George Utah

    Any ideas what this could be? I found it by a dried up river bed outside of St.George Utah. There was a lot small pieces of petrified wood close by.

    Devonian, Carboniferous, quartz, limestone

    I have this big and heavy chunk of rock, found lying on the riverbed of lots of loose rocks, with almost every rock having some sort of fossil in them. My rock stands out from the general rock population. It has lots of quartz, some kind of shells, yellow sand in holes and crevises, and some articulated small bone looking things. At close look you see interesting textures. At first I imagined I was seeing some starfish and coral, but I can't make it out. I am a total amateur with just a pile of books and the internet. Anyone?

    River bones...?

    These were all found in the same river, over time. It is a river in SE Texas known for fossil finds from large mammals in the Pleistocene. I think due to their river tumbling they are not identifiable, but I just wanted to see if it is possible they could be some type on mineral rather than bones? Pics are front back. We find a lot of petrified wood in the area too, but it normally looks distinct from this. The two on the left almost look like they are variations of the same thing, and the one second from left has some kind of almost enamelish looking stuff in threads on the surface. Non

    Found in dry riverbed in middle TN.

    Found this while hunting geodes in TN. Any thoughts?

    I know there are tons of 'not an egg' look alike rocks but as they don't seem to resemble this one I will venture to ask...my daughter found this in a shallow riverbed on our camping trip last week to central Connecticut. The brown shell like pieces are thick and uniform. There are some in the opposite side as well, will upload more pictures. This pic was taken the day of the find. Any insight would be welcome. My daughter is 4 and pulled it out because we were discussing all the different colors of the river rocks. This one looked nothing like the others. A man we had chatted with the day pri

    Fossil in Alps riverbed

    hi everyone, I found this fossil embedded on honeydew sized rock on a riverbed the the western alpine region of Austria, (Hinterhornbach). I am sorry for not having included a ruler as i was on a hike and did not want to take the rather large stone away from the area at the moment. I am curious to know if this is in fact a fossil of some sort, as I am by no means an expert when it comes to fossils. At the imprints widest point i would say is 10cm. The detailed texture which is printed resembles leather or elephant skin, as there are small wrinkles that run across the shape while the comp

    What is this?

    My son found this while on Boy Scout canoe trip on the Buffalo River in Newton Co., Arkansas. (6-2-20) Found in a river bed. Some type of molar tooth?

    Bison tooth?

    I cleaned it up quite a bit, picked it up thinking the top part of the tooth was a beautiful agate , was not disappointed though!

    Found at Rasmussen park in a river bed in Mankato , Mn..google lens is telling me it’s hash oil, but I think that’s incorrect
  19. Found this, what looks like a shell in granite. Riverbed in Wallonia, south of Belgium. River, the Ourthe (or Semois). Any chance this could be named or roughly dated?
  20. The pictures show the front and back of a small slab of stone (approx 6in x 6in x 0.5in thick). I have no experience of fossils and so am completely in the dark with this. The stone was on the stony beach which was exposed due to low rainfall - it would ordinarily be under water in a small stream about 2m wide. The pattern is 3D - as if the dark areas within the lighter lattice-type lines have been slightly hollowed out (perhaps only by 0.5 mm). A friend guessed that they may be plant fragments. The stream runs close to an area in Scotland frequented by Druids many centuries ago, as well as

    Found what seems to be a tooth in the Big Sioux River just inside the border of Iowa. Hoping to figure out what it's from. It appears to have a sedimentary formed abscess on it which leads me to believe it may be older. It's about half an inch tall and roughly just as wide

    Fossil ID Mammoth Molar Fragment

    I found and odd rock that from what I see online seems similar to a mammoth Molar perhaps. Or maybe I just want it to be lol. Either way would appreciate any help identifying it or just telling me I found a rock.

    ID for a Newbie Please

    Hello, I am a new member as of today but have been reading for a while. My son and I have recently gotten into rock collecting. We haven’t gone fossil collecting yet but hope to do so soon. We found these in Inland Southern California in the foothills of the Big Bear area. The site was next to a river or what’s left of it this time of year anyway. I have tried to rule out pseudofossils and different types of rocks. These also remind me of what a ranger described to me as jellyfish fossils while visiting the Bristlecone Pine area in CA. Similar samples were also on display. The seco
