    Help identifying fossil

    Found this in grey county in the panhandle of Texas. I am unsure if it is a rock or a fossil. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  4. I.C. Fossils

    Help with ID of bones? please

    Hi, I’m new to the forum and I live in Florida. I’m trying to get things sorted out to send the university my list of finds and I have a few head scratchers. These were found on the East coast between Fort Pierce and Jensen Beach. I have read that most fossils in this area are there because of beach refurbishment with material from inland sources. Thanks to this site I have been able to identify most of everything that is in identifiable condition. These three make me wonder and I would greatly appreciate it if someone would have a look. I can try to get better photos if you need and the scale

    A bunch of old collection unknowns

    Hello, Here are a bunch of old collection fossils that have me stumped...almost no info on provenance so tricky, but I'm hoping I can get at least a fossil identity for them if possible. There are 13 in total, here goes: 1. Crustacean/brachiopod steinkern? 2. Crustacean? Brachiopod? 3. Is this a coral? 4. No clue...thought orthocone but seems too thin? 5. No clue 6. Thought some sort of echinoderm but almost looks six-sided? Reminds me of a construction nut used for scre

    Unknown fossils from Cuba

    Hi Guys! Hopefully someone can help. I found what I assume to be fossils of SOMETHING while snorkeling in Cuba this summer . I’ve asked around and nobody seems to be able to identify them. The curiosity is killing me lol they look almost like teeth or beak parts but I really have no clue

    Unknown vertebra?

    Hello, I’m new to this group and was hoping for help identifying this find. I found it on a well known fossil beach on the east coast of VA, USA. It looks like a vertebra to me, but this was my first fossil hunting trip and I was expecting to find shark teeth. Any ideas on what this is from? Or if it is really ancient? Thank you for your help!

    Mazon Creek ID

    As with many Mazon Creek pieces, a lot is left up to interpretation and imagination. Looking to see what people think about this piece. @RCFossils @stats @Mark Kmiecik @connorp @deutscheben and any other FF members.
  9. Bonebed

    Any ideas?

    Hello, I hope that I've done this right. To my very untrained eye this looks like a bone. It is: L-5.5 in. W, at the knob 2.5in It weighs 523g. I found it, along with several other items, at a rather large construction site in South Central Alaska. There were quite a few items that I found interesting. Any help that you may off is greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time.

    Dugong Bone Question

    I collected this Dugong bone near Sarasota, Florida today and was wondering what would make this indentation/ boring?

    Is this an ilium bone?

  12. Tales From the Shale

    NW Alabama

    Formation: Bangor Limestone Age: Mississippian Found this location in a remote area of Alabama recently. I Haven't hunted the Bangor in awhile, so I gave it a shot. A fragmentary calyx. Northern Alabama seems to be teeming with these, as I found 8 others in a nearby locality as well. A complete, but squashed roller of a Kaskia? Fenestrella are found commonly articulated with their fans here. This was the best individual I found. My guess is these are Spyroceras? All of my nautiloids come from the Ordovicia

    Fossil ID Eastern Oregon

    Hello all, I found this in a river near John Day, which is near the John Day Fossil beds. I have zero information as I am a total newbie to all this, but I am very excited! I’ve run it under the water to see it better. It is roughly 4 in/10cm from one end of the white part to the other end of the white part. If you look at the top of the back, there looks to be more of the white just barely showing a ridge. Any help is appreciated!
  14. When I found this, my initial thoughts were crinoidal. But as can be seen from this gray green section of the Bond Formation, crinoids have the characteristic look that I am used to. Normal Crinoid: : My unknown is black and the "arms" are bumpy:
  15. Queensland.fossils

    Crab? Crustacean? Skull?

    I came across this one today and am stumped as to what it is. It comes from a Queensland beach, Australia in a location where I mostly only find crabs and shells. There really isn’t any information on the age of the rock that they come from. The best guess is from a paper written in the late 1800’s suggesting a date of around 10,000 years. Judging by the gradient of rock colour/type I suspect some are much older.
  16. Unsure of what I have found. Hoping for some help.

    Fiber web-like thing inside rock

    Found this rock in southern colorado. Strange, squares, seemingly fibers of some sort.
  22. Can anyone ID these, please? Again found in Caithness. The textured stuff looks plant-like to me but I'm doubting my eyes and think they could just be really cool looking rocks!? I've Googled things like 'concretions' but I'm still none the wiser. The flat piece with the minerals running along the top fizzes with vinegar so I'm guessing it's calcite with a sparkle of pyrite. It was found beside the textured piece in pic #1 which seems to contain a pink tinted quartz (?) and pyrite? The big piece I'm holding aloft looks so like bark to me but I'm anxious of merely making assumptions.

    Midwest USA

    Thankyou ahead of time! This could be nothing as i am an amateur in most perspectives but on my normal dog walk/ rockhounding adventure i picked up something different, half buried, but uncovered in some new trails made by some heavy equipment here in south east nebraska. Will add several photos, im not sure of anything except i know its not a rock im familiar with! Thankyou again for any information!
  24. Was hiking a trail in nw New Mexico and kicked this. Strange weight, shape, texture for a rock. Bumpy all over with holes in each end. Anyone know what it is?

    Is this an egg?

    Hi everyone, First, thank you very much for your help in identifying fossils! I just discovered this resource, and am grateful it exists. I found this unknown piece in a collections storage closet in the museum I work for. It was mixed in with other fossils and geology samples. Unfortunately, it was unlabeled, and so I do not know where or even when it was found. Again, thank you for your help, and I apologize for not having more information about the piece. If you need any other pictures, I would be happy to take them.
