    Fossil Id please

    Found this in a river bed in Branson Missouri. It weighs 1lb 2.3 oz and is about 4”x4”. It caught my eye because it looked like quartz at first. Looks a little different than most pictures of fossilized turtle shells I found on the web. Any thoughts appreciated.
  2. Hello! While doing some gardening today I came across something that caught my eye. Looks like a partial piece of a fossilized turtle shell, but I'm discovering that it could just be fossilized poop :/ really light weight. Brown in color. Any ideas?? -Even if it isn't a turtle shell, I'll still be adding it to my collection. Looks pretty cool

    Trip for teeth

    Turtle Shell Fossil?

    Would you identify the first fossil a Spiny Softshell Turtle Shell Fossil, anyone? anyone? It came with some other North American east coast / Florida fossils. The second light colored one is labeled Snapper Turtle Shell. Any issues with this?

    Turtle Shell ID

    The only information I have about one of these is that it is a pond turtle shells and came with other Miocene aged fossils. Help please and thank you

    Turtle shell or scute?

    Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. 2022. Initially thought this was a turtle shell but the interesting texture on the underside reminds me of scute. Ideas? it’s 1 1/2 inches long and about an inch wide.

    Turtle shell section

    From the album: North Sulphur River

    A large turtle - over 0.5" in thickness. Note the porosity of the interior and the relatively uniform thickness.

    Turtle shell? Peace River, FL

    Found in the Peace River, FL. Thinking turtle shell? but the bottom, Ive never seen that before and would like some help identifying it. Im a huge newbie so if its obvs sorry, thank you! Its a little over an inch, fyi.
  9. I would appreciate some help identifying some of my latest finds. Since I am in Southern Indiana, I know many of my finds are silicified or geodized and I kind of know what some of them are but I want to be sure. I apologize if this post seems to be a bombardment of pictures that I am asking help identifying but I didn't want to post too many separate posts. Hopefully I've correctly uploaded pictures & if I am doing anything incorrectly please give me advise. First are what look to be turtle shells or are they just geodes moonlighting as turtle shells?
  10. Hi guys me again, Anyone knows of a turtle with spikes on the Miocene of Florida? Regards, Alex

    Unusual form

    Unusual, very black and smooth. I’ve collecter turtle shell fragments and bone before but this seems different. Very flat on one side with a center raised section on the other. Found along intercoastal river near Charleston, SC I appreciate any ideas. Not like my usual turtle finds! Quampegan

    Turtle shell fragments?

  15. Found on the Brazos River just southwest of Houston. The title says it all, as that's about all I know about this one! Any help on narrowing it down beyond that to something like a basic genus or even a species would be welcome.

    Turtle shell?

    Good afternoon folks. I have what I believe to be a fossil turtle shell pieces. It was listed as "unidentified fossil in sedimentary matrix found in the SW desert". What do you think?
  19. Hello everyone, I am in desperate need of help with a huge debate I have been having with a friend over fossils preserved in ironstone concretions. From some of what I had read to some advice from other members I it possible to find vertebrate bone among shells and other mollusks preserved in an ironstone concretion. Whether it leaves a trace of the organism, morphs the organic material into the structure of the iron concretion through the decomposition with preserving, or whatever else it may be it seems to be possible. So recently I have hunted a place known to have recorded mar
  20. Hello I present an interesting question that I'm not to confident to answer myself and am seeking help from the more knowledgeable. Since it seems like (from what I had seen) iron concretions can at rare times preserve certain fossils or traces in one way or another such as molluscs, brachopods, and such. Due to this would it be possible for material such as turtle shell scutes or maybe even croc scutes to turn up in such concretions in one way or another? (the pics are just snipets of general info that I came across online)
  21. Last Saturday my friend and I once again ventured out. We had such a great time last trip, we decided to try to repeat it. I am including a slide of the nicest teeth I found, and a fun layout project that I may ot follow through on, and the remainder of the fossils found in 4 hours of sifting gravel. We went to the same little stream in Northport. jIt runds into the Myakka river, but I don't know its name, in face there are lots of tributaries in the area, so it may well be just a branch of somehting, or unnamed. At any rate, the place is magical. After our hurricane last years, the canapy has
