    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.
  4. 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.
  7. I was out yard saleing and cam across an eccentric fellow who had this on one of his tables. n opinionIt looked pretty cool so I bought it. I asked for an opinion from a friend and he thinks it is a whale vertebrae . I have absolutely no idea what do you guys think? Thanks in advance for the opinions
  8. The legs show that snakes retained legs for 70 million years. More importantly, these fossils help explain the extreme flexibility of snake skulls. https://m.phys.org/news/2019-11-fossils-snakes-lost-legs.html

    Looks reptilian to me

    1.5” X 1.0” tapers to blunt point. Structures up close with microscope are fantastic. the fractals And repetition scream complex multi cell but I have been duped many times by rock before. I don’t see how this couldn’t be flesh fossilized but hey. Found in southern Indiana, but in commercial river rock.

    possible snake fossil?

    Just joined today so first time posting! *I can already tell this is going to be my new favorite site! I originally found this fossil when I was about 11 years old. It was found on a rock cliff in the middle of Lake Eufaula in Eastern Oklahoma. I begged my uncle to take me to the rock cliffs projecting from the center of the lake so I could throw rocks in the water. I remember the cliff being very tall and all a light grey color. the rocks flaked apart really easy so I was having a hay day chipping off big flecks and tossing them down to the water below. to my surprise I flaked off

    Possible Snake Head

    Hello, Found this possible snake head on a beach North of St Augustine. Looking for information. Thank You. Regards, Chris

    Skull, Teeth, Jawbone, etc.

    Hello everyone and thanks in advance for any help or ideas. Earlier this summer my friend moved to South Dakota and purchased a home. A few days ago he was cleaning out a shed on the property and found a cardboard box filled with the fossils seen below. It is unknown if the prior owner had found these on the property or if they had been purchased elsewhere. So unfortunately he has no idea where or when these were originally found. Neither of us have much experience in this but obviously fossils such as these catch your attention! If anyone wants or needs additional pictures let me know and I w

    Help Needing Fossil ID

    Part of a big collection .. can someone help me ID this .. I have three? I have no idea ..
  14. I took my 7 year old grandson and my stepdaughters boyfriend on their first fossil hunting trip yesterday. We had a blast and some cool finds. The Xipahctinus pectoral fin and other nice fin piece were my finds of the day. My stepdaughters boyfriend found a really nice shark tooth and a mosasaur vert. My grandson picked up every rock known to man and chased frogs most of the day. Lol

    Water snake and catfish fight in a Texas creek

    From the album: Cartier's favoroite fossils

    Hint, The snake won.
  16. I decided on a whim to go fossil hunting yesterday. I took off on the 2 hr drive to get to my favorite area the North Sulphur River Texas. I jumped off in three creeks to see footprints everywhere. I decided to go try a creek I spotted a few years ago but never tried. It paid off. I found my first NSR echinoid after 4yrs of heavy hunting. Echinoids are quite rare at NSR. I also found a really cool Pachydiscus ammonite with an Inoceramid on it. I think I"ll try that creek again in the future.

    Snake Vertebra?

    Hey everyone, I'd like to know what you think about this vertebra I found on the peace river last February. I know people find snake verts once in a while on the river and was wondering if this specimen had any traits that would determine its identity whether it be more general or specific. I know that not everyone knows the size reference when using American currency, the vert is 1.5 cm from the top of the process to the bottom and about .8 cm long at its longest point.

    Snake fossil?

    I found this in a rubble pile in my back yard today - South West Missouri. I am definitely a noob but I haven't found anything like this before. Could it be a small snake fossil?
