    Snake head? Or rock? Or what?

    Some kind of worm like

  5. Lisa Cormier, a teacher from Prince Edward Island came across a fossil that could be 300 million years old when she was walking on the beach at Cap-Egmont. https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/prince-edward-island/pei-300-million-fossil-found-pei-1.6564455 Parks Canada scientists came to investigate. The fossil has not yet been identified, but it is believed to be likely a reptile.

    Snake vertebrae on interesting matrix

    I have this really interesting piece in my collection. Got it for what seems like a steal. Its a tiny coil of snake vertebrae but the matrix seems to be some sort of crystal. Has anyone seen anything like this? No similar images come up when searching for snake vertebrae.

    Pebble Evolving.

    Hi, after a work related break in Wexford recently I found this item washed up on the beach. After lightly cleaning it and viewing it under a jewellers loupe, I realised that it appeared to have inscriptions on it. I thought I may be just willing oil t to be the case, but upon further investigation they are definitely man made carvings. It seems to be a fish/catfish possibly to the front, and inscriptions of what I can make out to be, a person, stick like figure, fish, a PI symbol as well as others. It is very intriguing and though I'd share in the hope other do too. Thanks.

    Pebble Evolving.

    Hi all my name is Richard, A.K.A "the fella with the pebble"! Not sure if I posted on this or another forum, but wherever it was I received some replies and then the thread got closed because to whomever that decided, decided I had, had my answer..... Sound! I found a pebble over a year ago on a beach in Wexford. I just saw all the variations of pebbles on the beach and thought... I'm gonna have a look at them there pebbles. Sorted. I collected a load, and one stood out when I got back and cleaned them. So a year on I have had giggles, looks and ridicule fo

    Snake or marine reptile?

    This fossil was found in Yunnan Province, China, along with Keichousaurus. So it's Triassic. Is it a snake skeleton or the tail of a marine reptile like Xipusaurus?

    Mammal identification

    Today we went to a spot that we don't go often, it started raining about 50 minutes in (we should have checked the weather) but we got quite a few fossils including these unidentified ones (sorry about the picture quality on some of them) the first I believe is a gator tooth with root, the second set, I have no idea about, the 3rd might be dugong, the forth and 5th I think are deer, the sixth I think is tapir, the seventh Is some sort of rodent and the last I believe is a snake vert.

    50 minute fossil hunt

    Today we went to a great spot we don't go often. The first 50 minutes were great, then it started raining,I can't imagine what I would have found if I got to stay a good 3 hours. We got two gator osteoderms, including the smallest one I've ever seen (below the large one) some gator teeth. Multiple mammal teeth (follow link below message to get to the ID message) horse frags, gar scales, turtle shell, and other weird fossils. Again, please go to the ID chat just to check if you can help.

    Snake Vertebra?

    Hello all, I found this in Scheveningen beach, Netherlands, I was doing inverse search in google and the closest thing that came up is a snake vertebra fossil, could this be one? , in some pics the color appears to be black because the fossil was wet, thanks for your help!
  14. I think an extremely rare finding and I look forward to hearing your information. Thanks !

    Head fossil or just a rock?

  16. Hello, Curious if anyone had any snake material they'd like to trade? I've got some Pleistocene vertebrate, ray, and shark material available.

    Snake Vertebrae Column id

    Hello, I bought this snake vertebrae column from a conference building hosting a fossil and mineral show. This fossil didn't have a nametag telling the species and genus of the snake (most fossils at the show had a nametag). I forget where they said the snake verts were from (or if they said the location at all). I think they might have said Morocco. It's hard to scale because it's in a frame behind glass, but all the vertebrae are around 1 inch. I know it might be hard to identify without the head, so I may just be looking like an idiot expecting it's species to be identified. But if som
  18. I've amassed a decent collection of rocks, minerals, crystals, and petrified wood, and even a few fossils in my 57 years in Northern California. Some I've found, others acquired at garage and estate sales and the local flea market. At one garage sale there was a milk crate full of various stones, geodes, cut agate, and such. They all looked good at a glance so I bought the whole crate. At home I went through it and every piece was a really nice specimen. At the bottom of the crate was a small rock. It wasn't anything obvious like the rest, so I looked at it under a light turning it all

    Cave Snake

    I just thought I would share a few pictures of this amazing snake I was able to acquire from a good friend who is letting go of a few pieces of his collection. He is getting up in age and I was honored enough to be the recipient of a few incredible pieces. This snake was found in 1988 in a cave on private property in Oregon. It is Pleistocene in age and is believed to be a species of racer (colubridae). Enjoy Seth

    Snake head? or rock?

    My sister found this and it is shape of snake, but the dots?? Just not sure what it actually might be. It was found in Poplar Bluff Mo. They were digging in the back yard.

    Petrified snake from Colorado?

    I inherited an interesting rock/fossil from my father and wondered if it was an authentic petrified snake segment. He was a physician, and received it from one of his patients back in the 1970's. The patient was a fossil/rock hunter in the Colorado region and said it was from the area. Those are all the details I have. Are there really fossilized snake segments like this around? It appears to have a segmented outer casing of 2-3mm around the whole piece. A circular (spine?) runs through the length of the piece on one side. The interior is fully crystalized.

    Fossil snake or worm?

    Hello, I found this peculiar stone and noticed it had something fossilized to its core, what on earth is it? I took the best pics I could. It was found in the san sebastian creek formation in Puerto Rico. San Sebastian Limestone.
  23. Everything was pretty well picked over in my regular spots so I took a thirteen mile eleven hour hike with a friend at the North Sulphur River Texas. Here's my finds. The mosaaur tooth, fish fin with verts, fish occipital condyle and the big Tylosaur vert made my day. The water moccasins were mating and did not appreciate us walking by. They both took the time to open their mouths and warn us to get away.

    Eocene Snake Verts?

    Out collecting the other day at an Eocene site on the Potomac, one of my kids came up with THREE cool verts! We think they may all be snake verts, but we wanted to get a second opinion. Any thoughts?

    Snake or Turtle head?

    I can't figure out. how to use your site! I have a fossilized head that I think is snake or turtle. It measures ap. 1 1/2" long, 1" wide & 1/2" high. If you or anyone could help me figure out what it is, I would really appreciate it. I got the head about 1995 at an auction In Southern California. Thank you.
