  1. Hi people. I am an amateur fossil hunter and I have come across this flint on my local beach. I don't expect it to be anything special but I'd like to learn more about it if you all would be kind enough to share some of your hard acquired knowledge. Unfortunately I know next to nothing in regards to the specimen so I'm relying on you guys to give me a start. Located on a the Sheringham, Norfolk, England beach after some large stormy seas Other common finds in this area are belemnites but of a orangery brown colour I hope this is enough to give even a brief idea Many thanks in advance for any information
  2. Going through last year's finds I found a few things that I don't recognize. All are from Pennsylvanian marine limestone. The first few all appear to be fish material of some kind. I find plenty of chondrichthyan teeth, but none of these look like any teeth I've seen, although they may be partials. Possibly some kind of bony fish scale? All images were taken under a microscope, no scale cube but they all are about 1/2" at the widest point. #1) #2)
  3. Bone unknown

    I'm not sure what kind of bone this is. I found it in Gatlinburg on the side of the mountain by a hwy
  4. Unknown tyrannosaur

    Hi I found this and am wondering is this a new species of tyrannosaur I don’t think it’s albertosaurus libratus because it is in a collection with gorgosaurus libratus and albertosaurus sarcophagcus so if it was albertosaurus libratus there would not be any specimens named gorgosaurus libratus there are other specimens then just this tooth too any information? Thanks.
  5. Very strange bone, Lake Waco

    Found this very very strange bone on the banks of Lake Waco. Any ideas?
  6. Vertebra

    Hi guys this is listed on our favourite auction site, it looks pretty genuine to me but it is unidentified, it reminds me of crocodilian material, what do you think thanks and merry Christmas will
  7. Could you take a look

    I suspect this is coprolite but I don't know. Thanks for your thoughts.
  8. Plant? shell? or mineral?

    Found North of Houston Texas USA in gravel load from Brazos River at first glance it seems to be a shell like pattern on the stone {why I picked it up} but the pattern seems to be the whole stone so thought perhaps compressed fossilized plant concretion? possible fossil wood? pulled out my macro camera and studied further....now I am stumped more photos to follow.....
  9. No idea what I have here. Just intrigued me because there is a circular impression on one side. Absolutely no idea what it might be if it's fossil trace. More likely some geological effect. Thoughts? It's about 3.5 inches long. Myrtle beach find.
  10. Just Weird...What is this???

    I found this on my walk through the park here on the gravel drive... Location West of Houston Texas The gravel came from a deposit from the Brazos River Its odd appearance made me pick it up...what in the heck is it though??
  11. ID needed for an odd Myrtle Beach, SC find

    I'm posting this for a friend who found this little oddity mixed in with broken shells on North Myrtle Beach. My first thought was vertebrae but it seems to lack an obvious center hole, although the white spot in the first picture looks like it could be a filled-in hole. I haven't seen it in person so I can't describe it any better than that, and sorry for the photo quality...not my pics. I know that's not much to go on, but any thoughts on what it could be would be much appreciated.
  12. what is this?

    Hi, I found this, don't know even if it's a fossil, Ludwigia says it's travertine. what do you think? thank you
  13. I can't tell do i have here. Looks good to me. Seller says species not confirmed, possible deltadromaeosaurus.
  14. Picked this up today on Myrtle Beach. I thought it was a steinkern, slightly different shape than others I'd collected. Then I noticed pitting - like marrow - on part of it. (See second photo.) It's a very distinctive shape, so wondering if anyone sees a recognizable bone in this, or is just a steinkern that those little hole-diggers got ahold of? Thanks!
  15. The black part of this is so smooth and shiny, it truly looks like an enamel. But even though it is somewhat conical, it doesn't seem to be a tooth. Part of it looks very much like plain rock, but then the shape looks rather deliberate. Oh I don't know - I give up. Any ideas?
  16. What kind of fossil?

    This is serendipitous, I've had this fossil from Haida Gwaii for 3 years and I just recently started looking into its origin, as in this week and now I stumble on this website and someone else just posted 17 minutes ago inquiring about an HG find. So I found this on the beach and also found one that looks like the one that Haida Gwaii Beach Finds was asking about. Any insight on species and approximate era would be much appreciated!
  17. What is this? Myrtle Beach find

    No idea. Kind of reminds me of a sea urchin, but not quite. Also reminds me of the kind of "hat" an acorn wears. It's got a little peak to it. Animal? Plant? (Side view and better top view added below in a post.)
  18. Hello everyone! A friend of mine was just given a group of fossils from a relative and has very little/no info on them. Through searching through this forum, we were able to I.D. most of the pieces, but this one we were unable to recognize and were hoping someone could help. There is no locality information associated with it unfortunately. Thank you everyone for your time/help, I really appreciate it!
  19. I thought maybe some kind of steinkern, but part of it is pitted like bone marrow. It doesn't resemble anything else I've found. It's pinched at the top. The top pinched end is smooth and shiny - almost enamel-like. The bottom half is round and pitted.
  20. Coral/Crinoid/plant or animal?

    Here's a mystery fossil I purchased at a yard sale. It has s few strange looking objects on it. I'm not sure if it's coral, crinoid, plant or animal. Anyone know?
  21. What is this?

    Here is the second item of Tucson show that is unidentified.
  22. China Trilobite ID request #5

    Good morning. Here is the fifth in my series of eight unidentified trilobites. Yes, the usual lack of additional information precludes me providing any ....:/
  23. Tooth or barb?

    Good morning all. I am still digging through my unidentified draw again and I came across this "tooth" or "barb", not sure. It looks like a tooth to me, maybe you can help. I don't have any information on this item as it was given to me many years ago by a friend.
  24. Trilobite ID help

    Hello everyone. Can anyone tell me what type of Trilobite this is? All I know about this fossil is it came from New York in a batch of unprepped fossils.
  25. Unkown Bone.

    Hey y’all what’s up my dudes. To be completely honest I’m not even sure if this is a fossil. This come from a late uncle of mine, I inherited his collection, and most of the contents are unlabeled. Anyway Here are some pictures.
