    Wabash River find

    Hello, I found this fossil this weekend on the bank of the Wabash River. Anyone have any ideas what it is? It was about the size of a dinner plate. Thank you.

    Wondering what this is a fossil of

    Wondering what the smaller impression is that looks like a circle with lines all around it. I am obviously very new to this. Our creek bed and land has fossils on almost any rock you pick up.

    Three odd ones...eggs or what?

    I can't really give time frames on these but odd they are. The first 2 items are odd maybe eggs? The last item can't figure out because has black hair in object. The first two are seven centimeters. Last other one is five centimeters. Inputs and of course enjoy. Thanks. The first picture was supposed to be fourth picture ugh.
  4. Hello All, I am hoping someone might be able to tell me what this is, or what it was a part of. A LONG time ago we were traveling the country, we stopped in Nebraska and Kansas and use to backpack everywhere. We found this in the sand one day after a hard rain the night before. We took it home, as we didn't really know what it was. We are thinking it is a fossil of some sort. So the item was found in the north west section of Nebraska. Was found in 1993 and sat in a safe since. I pray someone may be able to shed light on it.

    Sand Dollar ID

    I have had this sand dollar in my collection for forever, I alway keep it with a modern one. I have no info on it and it was given to me from a friend. Any ID and possible location would be appreciated.

    Is this a fragment of a bone?

    Not sure what i am looking at here, unfortunately unable to provide a location or a time period.

    Peace River ID Help

    As I wrapped up my hunting season on the Peace River, FL recently I decided to start going through my unidentified finds and try to figure out what they are. I am posting two of them here in the hopes that someone will recognize what they might be. Both are partials and were found at different sites on the river. First up is a rounded and grooved partial bone that I think could be the distal end of an Equus femur. There is an obvious groove on one side and this could easily be a ligament channel. Measurements seem to fit the Equus distal femur from what I have been able to f

    Any help on what I found?

    Hello everyone, While intrigued by them, I'm afraid I have no real knowledge about fossils, so any help would be greatly appreciated. I found this fossil(?) at the Cap-Blanc-Nez cliffs in the north of France. Anyone here have any idea what I'm dealing with? Thank you for any insights you can help me with! Cheers! Michalis

    Unknown Backyard Discovery

    Two bones found in my backyard planter roughly 1ft/12in below the surface. Location: Orange County, Southern California, United States. The larger of the two bones has one side cleanly cut. We have never buried any animals/pets nor placed any bones in our backyard in the 30+ years our family has lived at this property. Perhaps they are from the previous owner. It's a little unsettling not knowing where they came from and what they belonged to. Any information you can provide would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Strange fossil

    Hi I live in the UK near the coast in devon and my bro found this. Its strange as its in flint stone and has a strange pattern !?

    From the album: 39 years exploring Texas

    Pottery and unknown polished triangle ,square, and perfect oval quartz stones. Anybody have any ideas. Jewelry or shamen stone perhaps?
  12. Last week, when on an excursion to the Devonian, Cedar Valley Formation, of Iowa, I encountered this fossil. Thinking crinoid, I threw it in my bucket, so that I could examine it closer at home. Now, haven taken a closer look at it, I am unsure..... Crinoid? Cephalopod? Or something else. Your thoughts are very welcome!! Mike

    virginia triassic. trace fossil?

    went hunting in virginia triassic looking through red stones in construction zones. Didnt find much, the one thing I found looks like a trace fossil to me, though I dont recognize it. I am open to suggestions, the trace is 8c m by one cm of a looking like series of circular flat disks on a thread.
  14. Hello again, another find from my uncles garden (where he put fossils he found everywhere), so sadly no provenance info: Who can tell me what this is? Thanks, J

    I am trying to ID this for my kid

    Hello, First I would like to say thank you for providing a place for me to attempt to get an answer. I know your time is valuable, so I appreciate anyone who takes a moment to look. I live in South West, Florida and my daughter and I were at a flea market when she found and purchased this fossil. At first glance I thought it might be an aligator scute, but after looking more closely I know it is not. I doubt that I know enough to even be called a novice, but I spent a few hours online last night trying to find anything that it resembles. Even looking for larger examples

    Two finds from Delaware

    I took my son to the Chesapeake and Delaware canal spoil piles at reedy point a few weeks ago and found these two small pieces. They stood out but I’m not sure if they’re actually anything interesting or not.

    Is this a snake head

    I have this in my possession over 25 years, I cannot remember where I got it, however I used to make hand crafts and used stones from the beach mainly Killiney Dublin Ireland. I went through a stage looking at stones with a magnifying glass telling people that the stones were fishes and lizards (I could see scales and claws and teeth on some of them) Everyone told me I was crazy so I stopped !!. This feels lighter than I would expect it to be if it was a stone and it absorbs and retains heat quicker that any other stone that I have, I collect stones from all around the world as I travelled. Th
  18. Hey everyone this is my first post to the forum. I hope everyone is doing well. While fossil hunting in Amelia island I came across this fossil. At first I thought it was a Scute but after seeing photos it doesn’t have the craters you see in most scutes. Then I thought it was a Sea Robin Skull but it also looks different from that as well. Does anyone have any other suggestions on what it may be?
  19. I was cleaning up my Platteville finds from last fall and came across this. It in all likelihood is an ichnofossil but if anyone have additional thoughts about it, please reply!! The Platteville has plenty of trace fossils but I have yet to see one with this appearance. Would love to have an idea of it's maker.

    Micro Bacculite?

    This is from Duck Creek formation in Tarrant county, not familiar with fossils from there so not sure what this is, looks very similar to a bacculite to me except for ridge running the length of it. Half cm long.

    Unknown Burlington

    I had forgotten that a few pieces of Burlington matrix were left in some acetic acid. Found the dissolved specimens today and labeled the known ones accordingly. These SMALL specimens that are shown today are not anything I am familiar with. So it is for this reason I am seeking help!!

    Very odd little jaw

    Yesterday took Rockwood out to Grapevine lake to explore the Woodbine, we went on treacherous hike below spillway that may or may not have been restricted area. Spotted this in place where sun could have bleached it, didn't know what it was without glasses so stuck it in my pocket for not so safe keeping. Didn't make it back in one peice and it's driving me nuts trying to figure out what it came from or if it's fossil or not. I put the peices in order in one picture, the little strip of teeth goes middle.

    2 unknowns from SE Indiana

    Hello! Amateur and fossil noob here. I was wondering if you could help me to identify these two fossils from SE Indiana. The first I found at the railroad rock cut in Madison Indiana* (corrected location below) loose on the hillside as is. Crudely it looks like a twisted up starfish. The second I found in the Waldron Shale piles that the Falls of the Ohio State Park (Clarksville Indiana) sets out for guests like me to dig through. For the second, I wasn't sure if it was a small coral or part of a crinoid. Thanks in advance - I really appreciate your help. *EDIT - my mistake.
  24. A person found this fossil and ask the Natural History Museum of Cal Poly Humboldt where I work, if it is a fossil of a dinosaur egg. With my limited knowledge I said that it is mostly like a coral because of the texture. It would be appreciated to see what this group thinks. Thanks!

    What might this be?

    I have no clue what this is, not sure how much is missing so that makes it hard along with still learning about the Goodland formation. Doesn't quite look like a gastropod or ammonite hopefully the little bumps are a clue someone recognizes.
