    What have I found?

    Hello, I am completely new to fossil hunting. I recently found this in my back yard while filling in a hole that had been dug a few months back. I don't know if it's fossil, natural formation or garbage. I'm hoping the Fossil Forum members can help ID it for me. It was found in the far west part of the panhandle of Florida. I know the ground here has been disturbed in the recent past and it's possible fill dirt has been brought from somewhere else locally. At it's widest it is about 2.5", the thin cross section is about 1/4" and the tuber looking part is oval in shape , 3/4"x5/8".

    Fossilized mushroom?

    Found what appears to be a mushroom while arrow head hunting in Arkansas. Is this a mushroom? Is it valuable, and if so what is it worth? Thanks!

    Strange little find

    Hi all, This is a tiny little find from a creek here in Florida. It could be nothing more than a polished bit of fossilized bone with some coincidental marks, but the markings are odd to me. I haven’t found bone pieces with such symmetrical and aligned cuts like this before. I was wondering if anyone has any ideas what this may be?
  4. So many shark, dinosaurs topic! Now I want to see your favourite and more particular fossil mammal! It can be your rarest or your strangest fossil but the fossil you love the most. Let me start with this partial juvenile metailurus mandible from Hipparion red clay of Gansu. The erupting tooth still preserve a perfect micro crenulation, I just love it.

    Third one of these I've found lately. Very interesting.
  8. Hello everyone This tooth is one is like to buy if it's no repair, but it's a strange one. It looks as if it's supposed to have repair because the contours are off. But the enamel is really pretty. What say people here? Repairs?

    Elongate Permian Fish

    So I've been following this fossil for awhile now, there was a fossil that was found in the Marl Slate of NE England. It has odd traits compared to the usual fish found in the slate, as it has a elongate body. This is the link to the original article https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/10361199 Is it possible to determine if its fish or another vertebrate like an amphibian? Do any of you know of any species of elongate Permian Fish species?
  10. Hi everyone, just came across this site trying to figure out what I just found. Discovered in the salt water in Chatham, MA, US. I have no clue whether this is current or ancient, terrestrial or marine, etc. You can see the next set of teeth still in the bone. It's about 10 cm long, and the largest tooth is about 1 cm wide.

    ID marine fossil

    Not sure what to make of this, I first thought that maybe it was part of a large gastropod shell but after digging it out of the sandstone boulder it was in, it looks as if that may be almost the complete specimen. Looks to be about 80% complete. Anyone have a clue as to what this might be?

    Fossil of alien tooling?

    Strangest piece I’ve ever found

    This is a long shot but I am hoping anyone can give me an idea of what they think this is. I found it on the beach of Sandy Hook Raritan Bay. I’m posting several pictures. Thank you for any ideas!

    Weird stuff/cool stuff

    I have some pictures of weird creatures that I had been collecting online(pictures, not creatures), but never getting around to anything with them, and I keep having to delete them to make room, so I figured I'd just make a thread dedicated to the idea, instead of a thread each time there's a crazy knew whatever I come across. Please feel free to give any info or thoughts, answers or questions about anything brought up, and if there's any weird or particularly cool creature you want to mention, go ahead and post about it, preferably with a picture. it's ok if you don't have a pict

    Odd Ammonite

    Hi. I'm an ametuer fossil hunter from England and I'm new here. I was hoping someone could help explain to me what this extra growth is on the side of this ammonite? I found in Lyme Regis England which is part of the Jurassic Coast. I have found many ammonites which are better preserved than this one but I've never seen one with this strange extra section to its shell? I was also hoping that someone could identify the species for me. Any help you guys can provide will be gratefully accepted.

    Another strange find

    So I’m kinda a metal detecting guy... but I keep finding things that kinda stick out like a sore thumb that are (non metallic).. actually my son found this one flooded lake in northwestern Ontario Canada...at bottom of a eroded clay bank almost on the beach... looks kinda like a horseshoe crab..trying to get some better pics... with the naked eye you can make out a segmented tail (everything really stands out when it’s wet but not sure if that’s a good idea?) any ideas?

    Helicoprion's mystery jaws

    Helicoprion's bottom jaw is easily the most bizarre of all sharks. With a bottom jaw shaped like a circular saw, just how did this shark kill/eat prey? Did its bottom jaw lash out to inflict debilitating flesh wounds, or did it do something else?

    What is this!?!???

    I found this fossil in Galveston Texas. It is really small about 1cm. The area is late Pleistocene in age, deposits from the Beaumont formation. I found it along with a turtle shell fragment, and 3 crab claws (which are also fossilized).

    not sure what this is?

    I'm not sure what this is but it was found on the beach this summer in North Carolina. I thought it was a really strange color contrast. It might just be a shell but I thought I'd see if anyone had other ideas. It is smooth with no sharp edges. Thanks

    What Could This Possibly Be?

    Found this on the Frio River near Uvalde, Tx. It has a strange shape with a lip around one side of it and it appears to have some kind of a core. Here are some pictures.
  24. I found this over 15 years ago in an alley. I have kept it in a box all this time and now would like to finally figure out what it could be . Any ideas ?

    Bizarre fossilized piece

    Hello again- I am doing a favor for a friend who is a "picker," and frequents estate sales. He collects many things, but not really fossils or rocks. He did happen across this very odd rock piece and asked me if I had any idea what it could be. At first I thought Ammonite, but upon further review of better photos he sent I doubt it is. It looks to me like an old piece of machinery that left an impression in material that hardened. I've seen it in person since and it is very strange, definitely rock, and doesn't look to be of natural origin; but then again, many fossils or geologica
