  1. Hello, These two items were found on the beach near Lakes Entrance in Victoria, Australia. There's a good chance they may just be rocks, but members of a rock identification forum wondered if they might be fossils, so I thought I'd ask the experts! No 1 has an unusual shape and no 2 has rows of little holes a fairly consistent distance apart. Is anyone able to tell me one way or the other if they are rocks or fossils? Any help is gratefully received. Thanks very much! Anna
  2. 2013 Find

    I had found this on the Yorkshire coastline in 2013, lying loose on the beach. This is a rectangular cuboid structure. Each end is relatively smooth. Three of the larger faces have a textured surface but the middle photograph is taken of the smooth end face which is slightly concave. The other which is an underside (since the specimen stands easily when rested on this side) is smoother but with some evidence of the same texturing but of a lower density than the other three surfaces. Does anyone have an idea of what this is?
  3. Another Fossilized Nut?

    I dug up an old post about what the user suspected to be a fossilized walnut. It looks a little too similar to my suspected nut to be coincidence. Both were found in Indiana. Original thread
  4. So the beach was recently excavated and what was covered by the ocean for so many years, dried out and the sand was excavated and made into huge dunes full of old seashells and mysterious oysters and conches. I found many bivalves and i stumbled upon this weird stone that is covered in fossil like formations and shells. Any idea what it could be? Is it a fossil? Is it extinct? Its driving me NUTS.
  5. My dad actually found this a few years ago in our driveway and thought I'd know what it was so he brought it to me. Pretty sure our limestone gravel came from an Indiana quarry. Haven't really been able to figure out what it is. Some of the grooving looks like it could be a clam but the things that kinda resemble teeth are throwing me off a bit. Anyone think they could help me out?
  6. Rock or bone?

    My last post was identified as a rock. This is one of many pieces that were purchased in a storage locker 15 years ago. I have no idea of location collected. The storage locker was in San Diego, Ca. Any help in identification would be greatly appreciated. The matrix is a mixture of sandstone and red clay.
  7. Help with ID — beach find

    Hi all. I found this washed up on the beach at high tide at Ocean Isle Beach in southern North Carolina this morning. Any help identifying what I found is most appreciated. I thought it might be petrified wood but the shape made me wonder if I’ve found a fossil of some type instead. It is porous. Roughly 1” x 3”. Thanks for any guidance you can provide!
  8. Help identify!

    Ive been trying to find where to post my pictures to have this fossil i found identified. Ive been searching for the fossil id section for 30 min. So im just going to try posting it here. Im sorry if that is wrong. 25 years ago a strange rock/ fossil was found on my parents property during some excavation. Not near any known river or water source. I rediscovered it today in a box in my attic because i'm moving. I cannot identify exactly what it is and i was hoping somebody could help tell me what it is. I have never shown it to anybody because i didn't think much of it. It was found in Fairfield county, Connecticut.
  9. XXL Trilobite

    I have been sitting on these two pieses for a bit and wondered if anyone out the could help identify it. It was found in Nevada. The longest section is about 5.5 inches long before it runs off the rock. My best messurement is 5 inches wide shell. From what I can tell it have a fairly thick shell from the pos/neg. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  10. Okay so I found this specimen at the Taughannock Falls in Ithaca New York. I found it at the edge of the gorge which consists of Shale, composed of slit and clay that fell onto lime mud and hardened into rock. I've done some research and it appears to be a Brittle star trace fossil formed by their arm grazing the sand floor. Although, these Brittle Star fish traces are known as "Pteridichnites biseriatus" and they have only been discovered so far in upper Devonian shales out in western and eastern Virginia. I'm not an expert but to my knowledge the Ithaca geological formation is Devonian and was slowly covered by sand. Is it possible that the Brittle Star fish once roamed in the ancient sea now known as "Taughannock falls" today? Because a research team is trying to find this specimen and they are wondering if anyone has discovered it. Edit: Im referring to the dotted trackway. check this link out for more information. http://www.wvgs.wvnet.edu/www/news/Pteridichnites.htm
  11. Crazy Mystery Fossil

    A friend from California gave this to me many years ago (but I'm not 100% sure it's from California). Does anyone know what it is? IMG_3317.HEIC
  12. Need identified please

  14. Fossil bone

    Bought this fossil bone from an old man, not sure what it is, guesses?
  15. Found all three of these at different times in Kankakee River State Park in Illinois. In the river. Two of them were just laying out. I got the other one hammering rocks. The rock it was embedded in was kind of a medium sandstone. (EDIT - I'm just attaching two because of the MB limit. You can see one of them from two different angles, including the interesting stuff in the middle, and the other from a single angle. I can post more if needed). I'm fascinated by the three-dimensional quality of these. The one - you can see pretty well - even seems to have some internal structure visible, looks like a notochord, but who knows. Anyway, at first I thought that I had Tully Monsters, until I learned those are never found in this form or location. Then I thought maybe I had ammonites, but apparently those are very rare in the Midwest, so I'm not so sure. What do we think?
  16. What is this? Croc scute?

    Can anyone identify this for me? I would think it was a crocodile scute, except Ive never seen that shape before.
  17. Pyrites fossil

    Can anyone identify this? I found it a few years ago on either Lyme Regis or Charmouth Beach, England. I believe it is preserved in pyrite and it is very smooth and symmetrical. I've asked others before but as of yet no one has identified it? I wondered if it was something to do with an ammonite as I often find them preserved in pyrite...
  18. Edestus teeth

    From the album Sharks and fish

    The shark relative is genus of eugenodontia holocephalid from the Carboniferous-Pennsylvanian age Anna shale formation, Carbondale group, found in different Illinois coal mines. I dont know(yet)which mine these were found in. This unidentified species is of the "vorax-serratus- crenulatus-heinrichi" or "E. heinrichi group", with the teeth being more of a standard triangular shape, as opposed to being thinner and pointed at a forward angle as in the "E. minor" group http://www.thefossilforum.com/applications/core/interface/file/attachment.php?id=501751
  19. Plesiosaur and pliosaur teeth

  20. Mini Mosasaur collection

    From the album Marine reptiles and mammals

    A little collection of assorted mosasaur fossils from 2 different places that I got when I first started collecting. 2 different types of vertebrae, one is mosasaur, and the other is a questionable claim of mosasaur, a corprolite that was claimed to be that of a mosasaur, a tooth, & 7 rib fragments. 2 ribs have predation marks, as well as the large vertebra. The large vert has a round tooth indent on the very center. The 2nd rib down has tooth scratches along the surfaces, & 3rd rib down has a round tooth indent in the center, which is probably what caused a strip across the middle to break off. There are 2 other tooth marks on that rib as well, forming a diagonal line from above left of the center indent, breaking off a piece along the top, to below right.
  21. Mosasaur premaxillary bones

    From the album Marine reptiles and mammals

    2 unidentified mosasaur species' anterior end of premaxillary bones. One with teeth broken off just beyond the skull, and the other has 2 remaining teeth, with the rest broken off at the level of the skull. the larger fossil was found in the phosphate mines of Khouribga, Morocco. ive since lost the information for the smaller fossil, sadly.
  22. Raptor

    From the album Dinosaurs & flying reptiles

    Unidentified raptor fossil, likely clavicle, from kem kem, in Taouz, Morocco middle Cretaceous 100 mya
  23. I bought this in a market in Chiapas, Mexico. They told me that it was from San Juan Cancuc, Chiapas, Mexico and it was found underwater. I have no other info. I have noticed some line marks inside the tube.
