    Spiny Mollusk?

    Hi, Anyone know what this is? Sorry have no info on it, not even provenance. No scale but based on the coin seems to be on the order of 10cm or less. Thanks.

    What is it? Unidentified Moroccan Tooth

    I got this tooth and a few others in trade from a geologist in Southern Morocco probably close to twenty years ago. At the time he sent me a number of teeth, all identified as mosasaur. This one always bothered me with that id as it looks quite a bit different from the other mosasaur teeth. It has a more compressed oval cross section than most of the mosasaur teeth I have had in the past. It also appears to have a bit of serration on the edges. Supposedly location given to me: Timhdite, Morocco, possible Oil Shales The geologist was working for oil companies in the area at the time.
  3. L.S., Hopefully the collective knowledge of TFF community will once again prove able to identify something that has stumped me. This time I need your help with these curious stem fragments! A good friend of mine purchased these at a mineral show on the US mainland. The specimens potentially originate from Kane County, Utah, but this provenance is far from bulletproof. It is quite likely, however, that they come from somewhere within the USA. The stems exhibit a hollow centre, with a ribbed internal surface (pith structure?). None of the specimens show nodes or other signs of axial

    Pennsylvanian/Permian crinoids

    Hello, I have a whole bunch of unidentified crinoids I'd like some help identifying. From my guess on the species and the fact that there were all together (as well as the other specimens that came with it), my guess is that these are Pennsylvanian or Permian-aged crinoids from Texas or Kansas. I'm hoping narrowing down the ID would better pinpoint the provenance for them. Here goes. The calyxes all range from 1-2 cm wide. I did attempt to ID them, using resources including this by the forum's @Missourian: #1-#4 I think are all of the sam

    Unknown (maybe bone) fossil

    Hey guys I’m kinda new here. I found this fossil a couple of months ago and I need help identifying it. Any clue about what it is??

    Unknown (maybe bone) fossil

    Hey guys I found this fossil at Ladonia Texas park and I’m wondering what it is. It’s pretty small and lightweight and about 1 inch on my ruler. If you guys have any ideas or suggestions about what this is let me know!

    Hi Y'all - Vertebra fossil?

    Greetings from Kentucky. Wandered across this forum trying to identify what looks like a fossilized vertebra I picked up roaming around with my nose to the ground. I've loved rocks ever since I picked up a huge chunk of fossilized wood as a little girl in Louisiana. Married into a family of stonemasons who used to drive into the creek and pick up the rocks for their jobs. They'd been masons for maybe 20 years and the first time I went to the creek with them I was the first of the family to find an arrowhead! Picked up all sorts of neat geodes and other pretty rocks through the years and h

    Unidentified possible dinosaur claw

    A guy I traded with gave me this possible dinosaur claw. I'm trying determine if it's a dinosaur claw. He said he was snorkeling in hell creek and found it. It's about 5 inches give or take. It's heavy and It has a blood groove on one side which only dinosaur claws have and the other has grooves or grains of bone like look and feel. It resembles a dinosaur claw and the patina on it, brown like, would be the result of being underwater for a long time. Please some help here determining this is a dinosaur claw or something else. Thanks. Brittan

    Found in Minos Greece

    Hi there. Wondering if anyone can help with this. strange story: Found it in a fossilized ash beach- and it had clear impressions on the exterior of suction cups kinda shapes. However the substrate wasn’t stable and was kinda falling apart over time. so… I put it in my kiln to IDK see if it would turn into a ceramic. Instead the top blew off and revealed a similar shaped but non aligned actual fossil. any help with ID appreciated!
  10. Leisa


    I hope someone can help me Id this. I live in Southern Indiana in Spencer county and due to man made environmental issues my house has began to sink, as we are on an aquifer and when under the house trying to figure out if we could help stabilize the area we came across this turtle looking object. Before it dried it was connected from head to what looks to be a shell structure. I'm so lost to this as I haven't found anything similar yet. All help identifying appreciated.
  11. I bought this fossil at a fossil show yesterday. Seller said it was a Starfish from Morocco. He had a few but only this one had another fossil next to it. He didn't know what it was. Does anyone know what is next to starfish? Was he even right about this being from Morocco? Also anyone know what type of starfish it is?

    Unidentified fish tooth

    From the album: Fossildude's Upper Devonian Fish Fossils

    Unidentified fish tooth - possibly sarcopterygian. Catskill Formation Metzgers' Quarry, Canton PA. Upper Devonian. This is actually an imprint of a tooth, with a bit of the enamel/bone material (white,pink,blue) left behind in the imprint. Tooth itself was destroyed in the splitting process, as it was not visible at first. Oh well.

    Two Mazon Creek Mystery Fossils

    Here's a couple that I have no clue on ID. I'm asking the usual gang to help with ID, and anyone else with an educated guess. @connorp @fiddlehead @deutscheben @Nimravis @RCFossils @stats
  14. This piece of incomplete fossil is from Yunnan, China. Same locality with Keichousarus, Triassic Formation. Any idea what is that? It looks like there are broken bones.
  15. Hello, thanks for the first batch of fish scales yesterday. I!ve dug up a few more stuff from out storage room. This batch has some weird pieces. the first couple looks like some broken piece of... coprolite to me. The surface, the shape suggest some quite compact dropping, although that hole in the is odd compared to the crocodila coprolites we have. Poopstone or not? The second weirdo looks like a claw to me, but could also be a less perfectly conserved Onchopristis tooth? The third piece looks like some vertebra to my untrained eye, maybe somewhere around

    Is this a tooth?

    Hey everyone, Any ideas about what this could be? We found it on a beach shore in Acadia Michigan. It has so many features that makes me think it's something special. - Triangle shape - possibly single root lobe and root line on top? Was thinking shark tooth but doesn't have two root lobes or v shaped root/gum line. Also seems very old. Was also thinking dinosaur, but It's my understanding there are no dinosaur fossils in Michigan, so possibly very old? Curious to know what you think! Thank

    Shark teeth to identify

    Hi, i have this lot of shark teeth from France but their previous owner, who live in the department of the "Pas de Calais", had them since decades and doesn't remember nor where they where found precisely nor their age. Is it nonetheless possible to determinate them ? Your help is appreciated. The squares are a centimeter aside. The photos one and two show the same teeth. Idem for the photos 3 and 4. 1 : 2 : 3 : 4 : Cheers, Fifi.

    Id required please

    Spotted this in a small bay on Anglesey, Wales. There were lots of other small shellfish type fossils mostly in slate rocks, but this one was larger and seems to have vertebrae? Could anyone offer any insight into what this is please? Many thanks.

    South Florida Fossil or Something.

    I found this years ago off the beach in shallow water in North Miami with a bunch of shells. It is not metal. Won't give a whisper on a metal detector. Don't know if it is a fossil or not. No idea. It has stumped me for a long time. Any help appreciated. Thanks.

    New find in missouri

    Howdy everyone! I'm from Southern Missouri and walk the creek beds all the time in search of arrowheads and more. When I was a kid 10 years ago I found this dinosaur head around rockbridge Missouri on our property. I finally wanted to find out what it belong to as only one Dinosaur has ever been identified in missouri?. Thank you everyone!

    Matrix stone with tabulate coral

    The fossils in this stone are probably Thamnopora sp., a tabulate coral common in the Verde Valley of Arizona. Normally it appears in dolomite from the late Devonian (Frasnian), This specimen was picked up way outside the normal range, in an ancient riverbed, where rocks generally come from the Martin and Redwall limestone beds to the west. What's weird (to me) is that this stone matrix is impervious to HCl. No reaction at all, as if it's chalcedony, but it doesn't look or feel like chert or any other chalcedony I'm familiar with. Does anyone have an idea what this stone may be an
