    Small and large lobster?

    This is from a basement construction project in southwest corner of Wisconsin. We literally dug out a hundreds of thousands of fossils, 4' underground. They were in a 3-8" thick layer of concrete along with a type of brown sand/dirt full of other fossil parts. Out of the 6 hills of earth approx 12' high each, only the first hill is dirt. The other 5 are nothing but fossil's! I'm completely green to the fossil world so I'm doing my best here lol. In this particular rock I noticed several small 1" lobster things. Then I noticed what looked like bigger legs. One leg goes through a hole and out t
  2. How do you distinguish different vertebrae? What are the characteristics of sea creatures vs land animals? Then when a land animal what are the distinguishing features between them? Are there specific things to look at or for when trying to ID them? What is the characteristics you look for when figuring whale or mastodon/mammoth? What are the specific characteristics you look for when differentiating deer, horse, sloth, bison? And so on... thank you so much for the input here

    Sea creature fossils (part 2)

    I believe this is a petrified sea urchin. Or part of one. Found it on the dry frio River here in Southwest Texas. Anybody know if this species has been found yet?

    Sea Creature fossils (part 1)

    I got this in a creek bed near Uvalde, Tx and it appears to be some kind of worm. Part of one anyway. If you look closely you can see perfectly straight lines running horizontally and parallel to each other to form segments. I believe earthworms have this characteristic. Anybody know what it is?

    Sea creature fossils (part 3)

    These look like mollusks that are missing half of the shell exposing the creature itself. 2 different specimens. I found them on the Nueces River in Southwest Texas

    What's this?

    This was sitting in my yard when I bought this house. The owner found it but didn't know what it was. Now every time I walk by it, it bugs me. Anyone have any idea's? The fossil's here on Vancouver Island are cretaceous sea creatures for the most part if that helps. Thanks!

    my first true bone?

    Found this this weekend. It is heavy for its size and when I put a large hot needle to multiple areas it didn't even burn let alone smell. I think I found my first fossil bone. I know its not a lot to go on and I dont need a 100% id but id like an idea what it may be and I know you guys are crazy good at this stuff. it was found on a limestone bluff in southeast Kansas in Pennsylvanian age rock. in a later picture I show some fossils from the same area. there is a layer of shale mixed in. that's about all the helpful info I can give. I dont understand why theres a limit on picture s

    Bearpaw ammonite and what?

    I found a spot in the Bearpaw formations of central Montana that has some nice ammonites and found these two little guys that I don't know what are. Are they baby ammonites or maybe a Horn Coral? They do have the shell material and joints or ripples I'm leaning a type of ammonite. Any ideas? I included a picture of one of the ammonites it was found with if it helps with ID by association. Thanks

    What Type Of Animal / Era?

    Hi, we were not particularly hunting fossils but made this find in the sand pumped out by the local authority, to keep a 25 meter deep channel open for Cape size vessels to enter the Richards Bay port harbor in South Africa. We found quite a few of these examples , some a bit larger that the two samples shown in the pictures. The fossils shown here resembles some kind of unusual vertebrae which is tightly layered. The one sample shown has got three distinctive layers, but it could also be aged related? I looked at quite a few pictures on the internet but none resemble the samples shown here. C
