  1. 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.
  2. Weird critter?

    Hi everyone, I was looking in my rock collection and found this rock I've not really seen before and it appears to have some kind of animal in it. No idea on age or locality it was found in. It appears to have been tumbled or polished at some time
  3. This fish is very cheap and after some researching that seems way too cheap, it looks very dyed to me. maybe a bit of restoration and that’s why it’s so cheap, or the seller didn’t know much about it as he included literally 0 information so he just saw some Knightia or something and sold it like themthanks
  4. Whats this guy called?

    I would like to create a sculpture of this guy but not sure its name. Thanks
  5. Long and cylindrical pieces

    Found on Myrtle Beach this week. Perhaps these are steinkerns/endocasts of something? But I can't find a shell or gastropod that quite matches this shape. And of course, they might not even be the same thing. The slight curve made me want to rule out belemnite (except perhaps for No. 2 from the left.) All the belemnite I see online is straight as an arrow. Ideas? - Paula Ideas?
  6. What is it?

    Ok, I picked up something that looked like this on Myrtle Beach a couple of days ago, held onto it for a few hours, then pitched. Decided it was maybe concretion of some sort. I wish I hadn't, because I keep thinking this one looks an awful lot like the one I threw out. Thoughts? It almost looks like three or four short toadstools growing out of a base (it's not, of course - just trying to explain my perspective.) I tried to get a photo close enough so you can see how the puffy parts connect to the stem (third photo.) I tried searching for ear drums thinking maybe it was something like that, but didn't find a picture that looks similar. - Paula
  7. Tiny Unknown Devonian

    @Peat Burns, This one is for you. I am staking my reputation (which doesn't mean a lot) on you to be able to ID this Paulding, Ohio unknown. Your info on species of Paulding mounds has been very helpful to me so far. Collected in early January.
  8. I need help identifying please

    I spent about 30 min googling all kinds of teeth but None really matched what I have in my hand well enough for me to identify it
  9. Crinoid and Petalodus Tooth Help

    I am looking for some help on a couple small pieces that I just happened to buy today when I stopped in a small store. I normally would not buy things without proper id’s, but the prices were right. Scale is in inches- The first piece has what I believe are two different Crinoid calyx- the tag stated that it came from Grantsburg, Indiana and it also had “Haney Fm.” Written on the tag. This was on the back of the plate.
  10. Calvert Cliffs Mystery Vertebrae

    In addition to a trip to Flag Ponds this week, I was also able to spend a couple of hours at Calvert Cliffs State Park where is found the following peeking out from the clay at the surf. I’ve been doing some research but am coming up empty. Any ideas?
  11. bumpy stubby wood or coral?

    coral wood or something else? found west of Houston in a gravel load from the Brazos River I have taken the pics in two different lights, this what ever it is seemed out of place only one like it in the location that I could find... could be a fragment of something larger I don't know.
  12. No clue as to what this is. I would have discarded it except for the tiny smooth and shiny area in the crevice. Found on Myrtle Beach. Ideas?
  13. Mysterious sea tooth

    I have found this thing in a campanian marine phosphate deposit. It came along with fish and shark teeth. It looks like some kind of tooth, but I have no idea. The brown area is translucent and looks like enamel. Although the grey is thicker and sharp. Any experts on cretaceous fish would be welcome Ps. This is definately not just a rock, I am fairly familiar with this deposit and can judge a rock from a fossil. Could anybody I'd this please?
  14. Pennsylvanian unknowns

    Pittsburgh county Oklahoma USA, Pennsylvanian period , found in association with shark denticles and small ammonites. About 8mm across.Asking for a friend.
  15. Fossil ID part 2

    I found this when I was a kid. I have no clue what it is. Could be just a weird rock I guess. It looks to me like it could be some sort of a shell maybe? Any ideas? I will post a couple photos in the comments since I can only upload one photo at a time.
  16. What is it?

    Hi, My kiddos father picked this up at a flea market and was told by seller it was a megalodon tooth. He gave it to our son for Christmas. It doesn't look at all like a megalodon tooth to me. I had to manage my son's expectations when he opened it and let him know that it probably not be a megalodon tooth, but it's still really cool. I promised him I would try and find out what it is. My son is two weeks away from being 6, he has Asperger's and is absolutely obsessed with sharks. It's all he talks about. Would someone please identify this for me?
  17. Geological or Biological

    Title mostly explains it. Are these biological or geological. The black one is from Summerville, SC, while the other one is from Calvert Cliffs.
  18. This rock has a lot going on the first photos are of the rock itself, sorry about photo quality my computer quit recognizing my good camera. the next ones in the following post are extreme close ups of different interesting points
  19. Flat Fragment

    This fragment was found at Bayfront Park, where the Calvert Formation of the Calvert Cliffs is exposed. It is only about 1/2 inch in length. It is almost perfectly flat on the top, with one line running down the middle and several smaller scratchlike lines running approximately perpendicular in either direction. The middle line seems to be a wall-like structure that goes through the entire cross section as it is visible on both sides. The bottom of the object has many tiny pores, that when viewed from the side appear to be the tops of tube-like structures. I am really stumped on this one. It looks somewhat like a broken section of a ray mouthpiece, but I’ve found hundreds of those and this is unlike any of them. I’m wondering if it may not even be a fossil because of the near perfect flatness of the top side. It definitely doesn’t match anything on the resources about Calvert Cliff fossils on the internet. If anyone has an idea about this one, I’d love to hear it. Because as of right now, I’m pretty clueless. Thanks!
  20. A number of unknowns

    I have a number of unknowns as well as a couple questions. Is Aurora, Yorktown formation or Pungo? What is the age of Aurora? The scale is a U.S quarter, about 1 inch or 2.54 cm Shells from aurora:
  21. Coral Fossil? Or Something Else?

    is this a coral fossil or something else?
  22. Shark tooth ID

    I got this tooth a while back with some other fossil, it had absolutely no indication of the place it was found in, the age, or type of shark. One edge has a strange bump on it that I have never seen in any teeth before. Thank you.
  23. Possible kinzer formation by Oregon dairy Lancaster pa. Can someone take a look at this and see what it might be?
  24. Hi, I’ve just joined this site in the hope somebody can help me to identify what we have just found in our loft! We’ve only just bought the property so I’ve no idea where they came from or why they’re there. We’re very intreagyed to find out which animal they belonged to so any advice and information would be hugely appreciated! I have a number of photos but they appear to be too big so I’ll see if I can work out how to upload more. To me, it looks like two vertebrae that have been a little squashed together and we also have a separate disc shaped item that I’ll try to upload a photo of. I look forward to hear from you Best wishes, Stacey
