  1. I've been keeping an eye out for a stegosaurus plates for a while and I came across this guy. From some of the pictures it looks like a piece of neck armor. The shape and size seems about right but it's hard to tell if the base and tip are the right width ratios. Additionally looking at it zoomed in I'm not really seeing blood vessels and it looks more like a piece of sand stone so I'm not convinced it's real but I've been lurking on the site for a while and want to get some advice from others what they thought before paying the price

    I think it’s a fossil

    Inherited a fossil collection with minerals and rocks. This was in the fossil section. Not sure what it is or where it came from

    Too weird, don't know where to post

    I like lumpy, warty rocks so saw only one side of this before getting it home to see the other side, which I generally expect to be nothing too surprising. This piece, however, is so very different on it's flip side that even though I can see the cross section of it I really can't decide if I've got a crazy rock, track fossil, or an artifact (unlikely at best). I took as many pics as I could as they aren't as good as I'd like. As usual, I was hounding along the river as it rambles through the Nebraska panhandle. Please, post this where it belongs and, as always, I hold what you all

    Mammoth Plate Shard?

    From the album: Brazos River Finds--August 2021

    A small shard that did not look or feel like a typical rock. It seemed to have lines similar to those I've seen on mammoth tooth plate fragments.

    About the length of a pinky finger

    Approximately the length of my pinky finger. Found amongst nothing other resembling it near banks of arkansas River. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

    Looks like it could be a fossil....

    It looks like it could be a fossil, tho I don't know my geology well enough to begin to speculate as to what kind of fossil it would be, if it indeed could be. It looks like it could be a rock, chalcedony in-filled with limestone maybe, however strange a shape it's taken. I've done my best to set it aside, trying to wait out my curiosity while it sits with the other chunks of chalcedony, but I can't stop looking at it. Please help! K

    ID needed - Cretaceous Vertebra?

    I found this rock in a creek near me that I'm hoping is a vertebra fossil. It was found in the Woodbine of the Cretaceous of Texas. It was standing out from all the other rocks (most of the other rocks were red and we're not smooth). This possible fossil also has a smooth and circular shape to it, but also has slight angles it seems (if you could even call them angles). There's also a lot of small cracks in the center of the rock/fossil. Can anyone identify the species or family of animal this vertebra belonged to? Or is it just concretion or a rock? Any help is appreciated

    Maybe fossil?

    Hi everyone, Found this rock while on a hike in Spain. It had some odd texture/pattern on it so i brought it with me. Doubt its a fossil but figured someone here would know for sure. Its 10-15cm in length, hard rock and a bit of crystallization in some parts. Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

    Not sure if this is a fossil?

    hello everyone, I'm a newbie here and with fossils and hoping y'all's experience can help me out...I live in Globe, Az and I find some awesome rocks and minerals...however I know nothing about fossils...I found this HUGE rock last year and everyone that see's thinks it might be fossils? I do know the area was underwater "back in the day"...so we have lots of limestone conglomerates that formed. The first picture is of a oval shape something that might be a fossil... it's roughly 4" by 2" width. It has lots of texture to it. The parts I'm asking about that might be bone fo

    Shark tooth fossil??

    I recently found this at a job site I was working at. I'm pretty sure it's not what it may look like. It certainly has alot of shark tooth qualities. Any help would be great....

    Is this an egg?

    This was given to me along time ago. From what I can remember he said that he was out hunting in Montana. In the middle of the night could not sleep so went for a long walk. He found a crevice in the side of a mountain and slipped inside of it (might not be exactly what he said but I can't remember) and embedded in the side of the wall was these round things, he said lots of them. He found some of these on the ground so he took some.

    Is this a type of fossil

    Hey guys. Please help and let me know if this is a regular rock or a fossil. If it is a fossil, what kind?? I have fossils that I know for sure are fossils but I'm trying to post the ones I'm not sure about. I appreciate the positive feedback . I found this one in alabama. Thank you.

    Fish teeth? Found in ignaberga

    Im not sure if these are normal rocks. But they remind me of fish teeth ( i dont know much about fish fossils ) it was found in skåne ignaberga cretaceous
  20. Recently I took a trip up to central New Jersey in the US with my sister for our 2nd trip fossil hunting; at a place called “big brook preserve”. As I was sifting through looking at some fossils that I could identify such as shark teeth and fossilized poop with my very basic studying from the Internet and stuff I’ve seen on tv. She calls me over at something she had found while sifting through the dirt in the brook. Thinking that I’d be able to identify it for her I was stumped. it looks like it has characteristics of a fossil from what I think but with my limited knowledge and understanding I

    Dinosaur egg from Grandfather

    This fossil was found by my grandfather, and I inherited it. In the 80’s someone at VT said it was a dinosaur egg, but I have nothing for proof. Any ideas? Thank you so much for all of the information you have provided!

    Fossils? Or funny looking rocks?

    My family and I camp in northern Arizona, on the Mogollon Rim many times, and I have found many fossilized shells there. This trip I found these two interesting pieces, and I want to know whether they are just funny looking rocks or something more. Also, I'm still figuring out how to post pictures, and it seems like you can only post about two pictures per post? Sorry if I'm missing something. Thanks in advance!

    Bone or suggestive shape?

    Picked this up Wednesday on my last visit to the Peace River. I was prospecting on some new sites and having modest success with small shark teeth and turtle shell pieces when I pulled up my first complete dolphin/porpoise periotic. In the next sifting screen I found the below specimen. I thought it could be a partial axis vert of some type but am not sure it is anything more than a suggestively shaped rock. Any input on what it may be would be appreciated.

    What could this be????

    Morning folks. Sorry, I really don't like to do this - I have NO information at all as to what, where or when concerning this fossil. Can anyone help with the ID? My wife says it looks like a "gift" from my cat after an all-nighter in the back yard.
  25. Found in Kyd Brook (Late Cretaceous) It’s probably just a rock, right?
