  1. As the winter this year is not very harsh, on Saturday I ventured to a location quite close to my home - I learned about it during the last fossil fair It's a sand pit - well, sort of, as it extracts sand from the bottom of the Vistula River - and according to the fossil seller who told me about it, it is the place where one can find Pleistocene fossils. We were warned to stay clear of the pipes, because of falling stones, but we were allowed to browse the piles of whatever was filtered out from the sand
  2. So, I've been hunting sharks teeth on and off in South Alabama since a young child. Since my two kids have gotten self sufficient, me and the wife have been taking alot of trips to the river to look for teeth. Finding the normal small teeth, for our area, got me to wondering if there were bigger teeth in our area. That led me to some late nights of researching the ins and outs of my area. The area we are close to has alot of Eocene era fossils and I quickly learned the Carcharocles auriculatus was THE SHARK during this time period. So, my goal became to find a complete tooth in my little honey

    Unknown Find from San Pedro California

    A member of my monthly bug chat group is trying to figure out what this might be and I offered to post it here to get some ideas. It was dug from a hillside in San Pedro, where clams and crabs were also found. My best guess is the formation is Pleistocene Palos Verdes Sand. They have shown it to the ichthyology sections of the LA County Natural History Museum and seem to have ruled out it came from a fish. My best guess is maybe some sort of coprolite? However, its huge and I also wouldn't rule out some sort of human made artifact.
  4. Hello, I have a bit of an odd piece, it's not a fossil, it's a scorpion! The scorpion was in its burrow in a dune when the dune collapsed, I would like to stabalize the sand, so that I can display it. This isn't a particularly important find, so I wouldn't mind if it broke in the process. Keep in mind, I have very limited materials.
  5. Found this while digging in my backyard in Southern California. More specifically, Cerritos, which is just a few miles north east of Long Beach. I uncovered a whole layer of interesting rocks, a huge chunk of breccia, shale, sandstone, and even a ~2 in. long quartz, but this one actually looks like a coral to me. I can add close ups if necessary.

    Fossil hunting after rainfall

    Yesterday we had heavy rainfall in Charleston. Rainfall is of course one of the natural elements that erodes the material surrounding fossils. We know that some fossils become exposed to the earths surface due to rain. In Charleston, good areas to search after a hard rain are shores, river edges, creeks, gravel beds, and excavation sites. Dredge piles are also good search areas. There is a particular area on Folly Beach which has a significant amount of dredge material. It would be a good area to search today or tomorrow at low tide. I suggest you search here between 10am and 2pm (low tide). T

    Unidentified Fossil

    Series of tubes... maybe an insect colony?? A family member, who studied geology, left me their collection and I am trying to identify some of the fossils & minerals! Thank you!

    Tube-like objects found on CA beach

    Hi all! I’m hoping to solve a mystery. I find these objects pretty regularly along the San Mateo coast of Northern California. I’m not even sure they’re fossils, but the bluffs above the beach are part of the Purisima Formation with plenty of fossils from the late Miocene to early Pleistocene so I thought it would be worth a try. They look to be made of compacted sand, like a concrete, but laid down in layers, with a more robust top with lines that have some shell-like material. Most pieces I found have this triangular shape that look like they might have formed tubes. All the pieces I’v

    Pleistocene fossils

    Hello, I bought these two Pleistocene fossils today at the fossil fair - but the seller was not sure what kind of animal they come from. The first one is 10 cm long: Picture with a flash: The second one is 15 cm long: Pictures with a flash: Can anyone help me ID these? They come from Vistula River sands, Pleistocene age. Thanks a lot

    Mystery item found in western ND

    Hi everyone, I came across this object earlier this evening and I was wondering if anyone could help me figure out what it is. It was found embedded in a soft rock (soft enough to scrape away large chunks with a pocket knife) with just a small cross-section exposed. It first grabbed my attention because it appears round and hollow in cross-section, and was a different color and harder than the surrounding material. The rock it was found in was at the top of a hill, and located in western North Dakota, just barely across the border from Montana. My friend and I tried to brainstorm what it

    piece of jaw?

    Hello everyone. I tried to find some shark teeth in the Korkynskiy coal waste heap. I found this in the sand . I hope u will understand me
  15. Hello, I am completely new and inexperienced in the amateur palaeontology world. I am planning some trips to search for fossils on the beaches in The Netherlands. What are the things I really need to have? I can think of a sieve and a shovel. But what are the best things to wrap found objects in? And what sizes of sieve should I buy and where from? Basically, throw everything at me you know, I'll take it in (eventually) Happy Hunting! -Jacob

    What kind of tooth is this?

    This washed up with the surf in Panama City Beach Florida 2018. I cannot find what kind of tooth this is anywhere. Its cold and hard like a tooth. Please help me identify the type and era it came from.

    I feel certain this is a sand dollar.

    I was surprised to find this amongst the prickly pear cactus alongside Cook Slough (a branch off the Leona River) in Uvalde, Tx. Can anyone confirm it as a sand dollar? It has the markings.

    Fish vert

    From the album: @Max-fossils 's Zandmotor Finds

    Me holding a perfect fish vert found on the Zandmtor, still a bit covered in wet sand.
  20. I just came across this article and thought it was very interesting. I hope it's okay to post the link. I also realize it's old. I had never given much thought to what a grain of sand looks like. Some of it looks like the specimens I've seen on here, only microscopic. Makes me want to check out my local beach and find a high powered microscope. http://www.boredpanda.com/magnified-sand-grains-microscope-photography-dr-gary-greenberg/?media_id=sand-grains-under-microscope-gary-greenberg-4

    Sand Samples

    I figure a lot of us here share the same interests, one of the things I do is collect sand samples from places I go. I have a few extras I would like to trade. These are each 3 dram vials, approximately 11mL per vial. The first is - Black Sand, Punaluʻu Beach, Big Island Hawai'i collected on a trip in 2009 - 3 available. second is - Topaz, Topaz Mountain, Millard County Utah, collected in 2011 - 2 available (I Know it's slightly larger than sand but it fit in my vials!) Third is - Garnet Sand / Purple Sand, Emerald Creek Idaho, collected in 2014 - 5 available

    Another Interesting Fossil!

    Hello fellow fossil-finders! I am back with a new fossil to be identified! Last Saturday I went to the Delaware Bay Beach with my cousins. We were looking for small fossils that were buried in this huge pile of rocks right at the edge of the water.The first fossil was found almost instantly. I believe it is honeycomb coral. Take a look. Next, I found something that I couldn't identify. It could be a barnacle for all I know. It has small grooves on the black side of the rock, seen here: Here is another view at the other side: Like
  23. Good evening! I've been going through and reasearching some of my summer trip finds this year and I am hoping for a little help! I am trying to figure out what the teeth in this picture are. This website has been incredibly helpful and has provided me with some think I knows but a few of them have me really stumped. They were all collected in Virginia and North Carolina. PLease feel free to correct my educated guesses. The larger teeth have smooth edges. The only one that has some seration is the small, wider one at the bottom-middle of the picture. If you need any close up picture I can cert
