    I've been hanging on to this fossil for years, I recently pulled it out of the bucket it was in and was curious to know if anyone on here could tell me more about it. It's approximately 3 inches in diameter. It was found in a creek bed in south central Missouri. Any advice would be appreciated!
  4. Does anyone know what this is?

    Does anyone know what this is? Found in East Oklahoma near Arkansas border. Its petrified into a rock.

  6. Is this bone?

    Hi all. Is this bone?
  7. Is this a fossil?

    Hello, We found this rock on a beach in Coffs Harbour, Australia and we're hoping someone may be able to help us identify it.
  8. I can't even wrap my mind around what I'm looking at. I've never seen anything like it. It looks like it has shells stuck in it. More pics to come. Found in Parker Arizona behind my father in law's house.
  9. Fossil or Rock?

    I have another piece found near Houston Texas in a dredge operation. It has areas that are almost clear or crystal like but at the same time has a similar look and texture as bone. Does anyone have any ideas. Thanks so much.
  10. Any idea what this is?

    Found this while walking onslow beach with my wife. Wondering if it's a rock or something else.
  11. Is this a fish?

    Hey everyone! This is my first post. I found this in Connecticut. On the "front" the rock seems to resemble a defined imprint of a fish. On the "back" it seems as if there is also an imprint, except not as defined, the "fin" on the back imprint is on the other hand. Now this might not be a fish, I am just assuming it is. I guess you could call me a beginner, I've collected fossils since a young age (I am still I kid), but I've only acquired basic etiquette, on collecting and identifying fossils. If this piece turns out to be a fish (or multiple), then I would really appreciate it if someone could provide me with some more information about it. Thanks!
  12. What is it, Doctor?

    Is this part of a coral?
  13. Interesting Fossil Rock

    This seems to be a rock with many unusual impressions. The rock is very white like white clay but hard like most rocks. I'm sorry I can't seem to get very detailed photos, the impressions are very small. This piece came from the same dredge operation near Houston, Texas. I will try to get more and better photos if it will help. Thanks once again.
  14. Coprolite?

    Hi. I wondered if anyone might know what this is likely to be? It was found on a beach on the south coast of the Isle of Wight. Very dense, smells metalic but not magnetic. Approx three inches long. Wondering if it's a coprolite or just a lump of rock?! Thanks.
  15. Help to identify this unknown fossil or ??

    I have included several photos of this mystery. Looking at it closely it almost looks like there are pieces or objects imbedded into it. I don't know if it is an animal fossil or a rock. It comes from the same dredge near Houston Texas. Thanks very much.
  16. A simple picture

    Here is a rock off one beach with a real mixture ! A simple find with lots to see ! There are several small apendages with the largest being in the second pic in the middle right out near the edge. What could it be from in that time period ? There are no shortages of aquatic fossils on the island big and small.. LW Note: The second pic to follow !
  17. Does this look like a coral colony?

    I found this in a load of rocks from a Farmer's field in Michigan. I love it and am dying to know what it is.
  18. ID needed

    A colleague of mine approached me today and loaned me what he believes is a fossil that he found in the Chestnut Ridge Park area in Western New York. I didn't have the heart to tell him on the spot that it simply was not 'dinosaur meat' as he was told by someone else. So I figured I would at least try to get a definition of the structures so that I could provide something more satisfactory than 'sorry, it's a rock.' (He was really excited about his dino meat.) I personally think it is just a plate of shallow sediment that was suddenly inundated by a heavier layer of sediment. Alas, I am far from a geologist and could use some thoughts that aren't just shots in the dark. Thank you in advance, and apologies for the less-than-stellar picture, my business partner has the high quality digital this weekend, so I had to suffice with the cell phone cam. If additional pics are needed I will get them in the next few days. I also included an edited black and white image to show the contrast lines. (The image alone is not adequate, but I figured next to the color version it might help to isolate telltale structures.)
  19. Jaw bone or just a rock?

    Can any one help here. The texture of this item really doesn't look like a fossil, but the shape is intriguing. Does anyone know if I have aything here? Thanks!
  20. Big brook find

    Hi everyone, I have no idea what this is. Any thoughts? Found at Big Brook in NJ. thanks, jen
  21. What Made This Print?

    PHOTOS ATTACHED I found this along the shore of Lake Ontario, in the small town of Port Hope, Ontario. The stone itself is about 1 1/2 inch wide but the stem-like print is about 3cm long. The circular print is about 0.5cm in diameter. Some sections even seem to have a bit of a shine to them when the rock is shifted from side to side in the light.
  22. Found this at Discovery Park, (a rocky beach), in Seattle WA. I think its a fossilized bird claw or talon. I donn't know if it is..... or what its is. Any info would be appreciated. Would love to know what animal it came from if its a fossil. Thanks! A
  23. An amazing find

    I live in east central alberta. We have rocks in the yard in town and found it in the rocks. so can't say for sure where it came from. It definately looks like a small skull. In person I can 99% sure say yes its a skull. Hard to tell from the picture. What is it? I took lots of picks from different angles. coolest find ever! Thanks for any info you can provide
  24. Tooth?

    I found this about 10 miles north of Aviano Italy. It was found on a trail in the foothills of the mountain. It was on the side of a rock wall with loose dirt. I don't have to many other details.
