    Explored a New Site!

    Hi all, I went to visit a new site yesterday that I had found mentioned in some literature from the early 1900s. It was a great day no doubt, and I was hoping to get some input on a few things. Stubby tooth I believe is a horse, but I’m not as sure about the long thin one, never found one quite like it. My largest piece is a camel(?) calcaneus and the small collection of toe bones were from a 1’ x 1’ area- all associated from the same animal I assume. They look camel to me, but much smaller than any I’ve ever found before. Any ideas? As best I can tell the formation was dated to 10-3

    unknown fossil Possible tooth/ tool.

    Strange rock found in a newly plowed hillside. The hill was shaved flat for a soccer field behind a new middle school. Found this on the plow line, thought maybe arrowhead but im really nowt sure. Tacanite or some other mineral. This was found just east of madison, in cottage grove. Would love some help identifying thank you.
  3. Nautiloid

    Unknown Ordovician organism

    I recently acquired an Ordovician rock from an antique shop near my house. It is a dark shale with cryptolithus and what I think are isotelus trilobites on it as well as brachiopods and graptolites. I am unsure which formation or even where it is from but it has this strangely shaped creature that I have not been able to identify. The creature has tiny indents all over its surface.
  4. I enquired a unidentified tooth from an oligocene sandstone quarry in Eurasia, im kind of convinced its a entelodont tooth,doesn't look like a crocuta one... (i will find it and show you the file)
  5. Hi I found this on the beach at lake mcconaughy in Nebraska which means it could be Pleistocene or Miocene but most likely from the Ash Hollow formation. I’m pretty clueless when it comes to bones and could use some help figuring out what this is. Thanks! P.s. I did the flame test and it’s fully mineralized.
  6. Hi everyone, I recently purchased this trilobite from a museum gift shop and unfortunately it came with no locality, formation or species information and I haven't been able to find anything similar online. Does anybody recognize it? The larger of the two is 18mm long and the matrix is very soft. Any info much appreciated!

    Possible Rudist?

    Okay, in our area we aren't supposed to have Mesozoic layers due to an unconformity....but...is this a rudist?
  11. Kato


    On a walkabout before another wintry event here in Alamogordo, chanced across two brachiopods. Are these dictyoclostus variants?

    Possible probable Reef?

    I was on a walkabout with my smallest pack and came across this specimen in the bottom of a dry canyon bed. It has obviously been somewhat tumbled and rounded over the years. 16" at the widest dimension. I found a couple of other specimens that are much bigger. Over 2x larger. This was the most interesting due to the strange folds of material on the top and right side. My first guess was some type of reef material but I've never seen anything like this before and cold find nothing online even coming close. Maybe just a bunch of fossilized shells on end? With the odd folds I sort of

    Strange find from Lewes.. (Fossil or not)

    Hey all. On my trip to Lewes, DE for my last breath of summer, I couldn't resist the pull of fossils and searched around in a sand and stone store. The seller had some nice shark teeth, arrowheads, and ammonites. We chatted about fossils for a while and then she asked me if I had any idea what this is. She said she found it on a beach near Lewes. Unfortunately she was unable to provide information on what formation it was found in. It may not even be a fossil at all. But it piqued my curiosity and I thought it would be cool to at least post it and see if it was anything. Maybe you native Delaw

    Museum Basement

    I was asked if I would be willing to help a local history museum by going through their basement and sorting/identifying their fossils so that they may be displayed. I simply do not have the time nor resources to do all of this myself, so I thought I might try to get a little help I will be having a series of posts here, so even if today's is not your forte, you still may have a chance to help out! Today's post is a series of plant fossils that were glued to the inside of a box. When I visited, I neglected to bring a scale or ruler or anything, so for size comparison we ha

    Gift trilobite

    Hopefully we'll have better luck with this one than my last post This is a trilobite which I was given as a Christmas gift many years ago. I haven't the slightest idea where it may have come from, but I think it may be from the order Phacopida. If anyone can tell what it is as well as where/when it could be from I would greatly appreciate it! More pictures:
