    Any idea what this could be?

    I have a sneaky suspicion that this is turtle shell but someone has suggested that it could be the top surface of a Mammoth tooth. I have no idea where it originated from. Many thanks!
  2. Jackie Woollam

    More fossilised turtle shell??

    I seem to have quite a lot of turtle shell in my Collection. Is this turtle too? Many thanks!
  3. Ethanwelford

    What is this?

    I found this in a creek off the peace river outside fort Meade. Would love some input from professionals because this was our(my wife and I ) very first fossil hunt inspired by Cris! IMG_2809.MOV

    Small Bone--Rib?

    Found this a while back and had it in my unidentified pile. I assumed it was a small mammal rib and probably un-identifiable, but I took a second look recently, and there's something about the shape that doesn't quite look mammal to me. It also seems older than many of my finds because the entire in-fill at the broken end appears fully mineralized. I figured it was worth asking about. @Harry Pristis @Shellseeker @JohnJ @Meganeura @GPayton @garyc
  5. Hi everyone! I acquired this in a batch of turtle claws from Hell Creek in Powder River County, Montana, and it stood out to me as a bit different looking. I'm wondering if it's something else like Crocodilian. Length is 29 mm, width is 11 mm, height is 9 mm. So what do you all think?

    Fossil ID - Reptile? - Maryland

    Found these in Maryland at Flag Ponds State Park which is known for it's abundance of marine fossils. I think the lighter colored piece is some sort of reptile (maybe alligator or turtle) skin? The black piece seems to be a some sort of fossilized reptile skin? Seeking expertise or thoughts, thanks!

    Hell Creek Claw id help

    Hi everyone! I just got a claw in from the Hell Creek and I'm not entirely sure what it's from. I know it's not dinosaur, but I don't know how to tell the difference between turtle, crocodilian, and Champsosaurus (what does a Champsosaurus claw look like anyway, google didn't have any pictures) or even something else if there is a something else I'm not aware of. Locality is Powder River County, Montana. Length is 36 mm height is 15 mm width is 13 mm Any insight would be greatly appreciated as always!

    Greene county

    Here are some I haven’t identified yet. The turtle is broken/smooshed on left side. Again, sorry I haven’t followed your rules exactly, but I work too much too be tripping on international rulers. Thanks for your help. It is very appreciated

    Bone found in Venice, Florida

    I don’t believe it’s a dugong fossil as IIRC they don’t have hollow marrow areas. It was found away from the beach but around shells, the peace river formation isn’t stratified either way. The last picture may be a separate all together but was found in this cluster of bone, it looks like turtle shell I have seen. It’s on a napkin for scale but the large portion is about the length of my pinky. The shell object is about the size of a nickel. Because of the shell piece found within the bone cluster I’m imagining it could be a turtle humorous

    Found possible fossilized egg, ID unknown

    Hello! Recently I was digging in my garden and not far below the surface I discovered what I initially thought was a rock. Upon observation, I noticed several characteristics that were not something seen in Rocks but more so in fossilized eggs. I know that it cannot be a dinosaur egg because I am in Florida. My first theory was that it was a reptile egg because you can see the porous-like surface found in reptile eggs but it most certainly could be a bird egg of some type as well. Another theory was that it possibly was a fossilized turtle/carpace. It is slightly bigger than a ping pong bal

    Unknown fossil?

    I found this while visiting Missouri over Easter. I’m hopping someone could lead me in the right direction to finding out what this could be.

    Kem Kem Claw id help

    Hi everyone! I'm fairly certain there's no funny business on this one, but I don't know what type of critter it could be since I'm fairly certain 99.9% of Moroccan claw pics online are of fakes and the remaining 1% are misidentified. 37.5 mm long 12 mm tall 8 mm wide What do you all think? Dinosaur? Croc? Turtle? Pterosaur? Any feedback is greatly appreciated as always!

    Brazos Pleistocene Turtle Fragment?

    On our field trip with PSoA this month, my husband found this bone fragment. It seems thick for a turtle to me, but I am more familiar with Cretaceous turtles. The Brazos river was very low during our trip and the fragment was found in the river bed, not the wall. Any guidance on what it may be or information supporting turtle or not is greatly appreciated!

    late cretaceous unknown bone

    My first thought was that this was another piece of turtle which is common in the area, but when I looked at it again it is seems to be curved in to many ways. The "coral" growing on one edge is also unusual for the area-- i dont know what that reflects either. I will much appreciate help in understanding what I am looking at.
  15. Found these in a creek in Maryland. I’m most interested in identifying items 1-4 but let me know if you have any ideas for the rest too. I think 8 might be the edge of a turtle shell because it’s wedge shaped. Item 7 looks like a rib to me.

    Help with Unknown bone

    Picked this bone up in the Peace River, FL last week. I have been trying to find a match since getting it home but have not been successful. I first thought it could be turtle or alligator. I had no luck matching it up there and went to land mammal possibilities but again came up empty on a possible match. So, I am turning to the forum for help with an ID. Any input would be appreciated. The bone is 7 cm long x 3.5 cm wide x 3 cm tall/thick. Thanks for looking!
  17. When looking on a muddy day in the maryland late cretaceous marine site. Found a small 2 inches 5-6 cm long bone. all help will be appreciated. I am not sure what bone it is, let alone what species. Like most bone from this site the surface texture is in general rough.

    Odd Lance fm. Vertebra

    I found this odd vertebra in Wyoming's Lance fm. over the summer. I was told by a guide that it may be a turtle cervical vertebra, but I wanted to see what other forum members thought. It's about 1.5 cm long and around 1.3 cm in width.

    Found on South Carolina beach

    My sister found this on the beach in South Carolina, and I was hoping to get some help in identifying it!
  20. Good evening folks, I'm new here but was hoping someone could help me identify my find. Firstly I'll be honest and say I'm not even sure this is a fossil. I found it this evening on a beach walk. So it was found on Skegness beach, this is on the east coast of England at the northern end of the Wash, a bay on the North Sea. Skegness beach is mostly sand with a few pebbles and rocks. There are usually very few fossils on the beach and it's not an area known for it's fossils. Over the opposite side of the wash is the Norfolk coastline, this is mostly made up of cliffs with chalk, san

    ID Help Please

    Good day on the Peace River yesterday. Found horse, mammoth, mastodon teeth along with several varieties of shark teeth. Also pulled up the below specimen. It came up in one piece and I placed it in the shade on the bank. After about 30 minutes I picked it up to move it to my kayak. That is when the piece in my hand broke off. Retrieved as much of it as possible. Got it home in a plastic bag and submerged it in fresh water as soon as I could. Only took it out to take the photos. Small pieces continued to flake off the underside whenever it was touched. I tried to position it as it was fo

    Have four small items First Item.....

    Have four small items First Item..... very small i see either an eggshell?...or a small turtle fragment? but then there is also the possibility of it being petrified wood found in gravel load from Brazos river West of Houston
  23. Hi all! Some time ago a friend of mine found what seems to be a turtle bone at Yaverland (Isle of Wight - UK) along with some eroded fish and crocodile remains. Honestly, we have no idea about this small isolated bone. We'd be very grateful if you could help us. Thanks in advance.
