    Fused Oysters

    From the album: Delaware Fossils

    Two Exogyra cancellata shells from the Cretaceous spoils of Reedy Point, Delaware. Although Exogyras typically detached themselves from their anchorage while still very small - about 2-3 cm - these two animals continued to live and grow together. The lower valve is about 10 cm on the long axis.

    I might have one this time!

    Fingers crossed, I think there's a real fossil in this mess! I accidentally chipped the part I think is a fossil, bone or shell maybe, with my tile nippers trying to chip away the bigger rocks in the conglomerate-- the nippers are for sherd crafts ONLY from now on! However, the pattern of lines in the part in question is as it was when I found it in the lower canal along the Delaware river near Pt. Pleasant, PA. My husband, King of Pareidolia, thinks it's a turtle. I'm not going to see things I can't hypothesize on, I'm here instead.
  3. Hi everyone this is Matt again. Today in the creek I found 2 neat brachiopod fossils. Here are some photos:
  4. This is Isorthoceras sociale (Hall, 1877) from the Ordovician Elgin member of the Maquoketa from the well known Graf, Iowa location. They exhibit unusual preservation, including nacre and hollow camerae. According to Invertebrate Fossils (1952) by Moore, et al,, shells of nautiloids have an inner annulus layer, middle nacreous layer and outer porcelaneous layer. Is the circular pitted texture on the outside then the remnant of the porcelaneous layer of the shell or some sort of epibiont like a bryozoan? Plate 220 of Shimer and Shrock's Index Fossils o

    Advanced Dinosaur Egg Guide

    The Advanced Dinosaur Egg Guide Please share this with those who have egg questions. When possible, technical terms were avoided or defined. Every effort has been made to ensure accuracy, but it is always important to do your own research. This guide is merely a snapshot of information taken from many scientific publications. I am not an expert on eggs, rather I just love sharing what little I have learned over the years, what science has learned over the years. For an overview on how to spot a fossilized dinosaur egg and the sizes of eggs, see the basic guide:
  16. Only one I've ever found like this. What it is exactly, I don't know. Found in a load of limestone road base, likely from a local mine.
  17. Hi everyone this is matt again today in a big stone I broke apart I found this big clam here is a photo

    What is this?!

    Hey guys and girls. I’m so sorry if this is a common thing, I don’t hit the beaches often. but I just couldn’t wrap my head around what this is. first I assumed coral, then thought maybe the inner part of a sea snail shell? sorry for sounding silly. Just curious and it’s late and this seems to be the only thing I can focus on, hahaha

    Fossil Shell or Odd Mineral?

    Are these fossil shells with odd mineralization or a mineral of some sort?
  20. Found in the backyard, dug out at about 2 feet down, Cerritos Ca. They are cleaned in the photos, some sandy matrix could not be scrubbed or picked off. Looks like it was fibrous in the middle (see last 2 pics). All pieces have same design on top and bottom. Have also found a piece of bone, and seashells in this 3' long, 2' wide, 2' deep area.
  21. Found this fossil inland, Venice, FL. Early Pleistocene material. I believe this is perhaps tortoise shell showing spinal attachment point to vertebrae. Piece. Measures 17cm x 13cm x 5cm thick. All photos taken at 1x. I look forward to reading your remarks. - Michael

    NSR Finds

    Hey y'all! This is my first ID post, so please tell me what I should do/change for future posts <3 These are all fossils I have found in the North Sulphur River in the last two months. I'm only asking about a few in the picture because I know there's a lot and I figured I'd only focus on a few at a time <3 sorry y'all, didn't plan ahead very well. I have more pictures of all of them though if needed. 1) One (bottom middle) is ID'd (via Dallas Paleo Group on FB) possibly as coprolite or a 'jumble'?- looking for clarification as well as what the things inside the fossil mig
  24. Finding a complete specimen is my white whale. Usually only find small fragments, these three are my most complete. Am able to use a few bits to get a “reconstruction” cannot figure out what these are. thanks in advance!
