  1. Hi all! Last weekend I attended Penn Dixie's Dig with the Experts event on the Sunday, and I found a couple of fossils that I'd like help identifying, if possible. The fossils are mid-Devonian in age. Thanks so much for your help! Monica Item #1 - photo of the entire rock and a close-up. Item #2 - photo of the entire rock and a close-up. Perhaps a crinoid bit?

  3. Ammonite

    I just found this guy in some old boxes. I lost the ID card, but if I remember correctly, it came from France. I don’t know ammonites so I have no clue if this could be identified at all without a precise locality.
  4. Mystery Shark Tooth

    Hi all, I recently went on a trip to Brownie's Beach in Maryland in search of Hemies, and I came home with some pretty good little teeth and a few decent sized ones. However, there was one tooth that I found I could not identify. I am not really sure what shark it belongs to, it sort of resembles a sand tiger but the root is very robust and thick. Im more or less lost as to what it could be. Wishful thinking, but I thought it might be a baby megatooth shark or a mako or something along the lines of that. Its a long shot, but I thouht i would ask to see if anyone else could Identify it, haha!
  5. Help ID please

    Found on a river bed in Sussex, south coast of England. No idea what it is. Any ideas ? Thanks
  6. What fossil is this?

    I found this while fishing on the beach if a cove in Massachusetts. It was below a huge rock cliff. Other fossils have been found in the same cove. I don't know what kind of rock the cliff is but this was certainly way different.
  7. Need help

    Found this item in Benbrook TX after some heave rain. The area is Cretaceous. Any idea on what it is?
  8. San Francisco Bay Area Finds

    Hello, SF Bay Area native here, totally new to this forum and to collecting anything other than rocks found on the beach. On one excursion just after a stormy high tide on a private access beach south of Pomponio, I came across these two cetacean(?) fossils(?) washed ashore, each of which weigh ~5+ lbs. Any further info anybody could offer would be great!
  9. Algae anomaly

    Hello everyone, I had recievrd this as a part of set of many fossils a few years ago as a gif, it was labeled as an algae fossil and the piece is very interesting but I am not sure what it is and what the age could be, one side is very glossy while the other is partially so, the glossy side has very interesting coloration and I am unsure of what it could be a mineral or a part of the fossil, the other side has some staining which could also be the fossil I am really not sure but another very unique thing about this is that y the side of the rock has almost a fiberous look with lines running up the specimen. The ruler provided is in inches, Thank you very much.
  10. Clueless in Texas

    A friend of mine was hunting the N. Sulfur River in Texas and came across this piece of ? Late Cretaceous Ozan Formation Any ideas as what this is?
  11. Topsail Beach - what is this?

    does look like anything you have found?
  12. Dugong Bone Question

    I collected this Dugong bone near Sarasota, Florida today and was wondering what would make this indentation/ boring?
  13. Need help identifying teeth

    I'm not even sure what these are, but I was kayaking near Cherry Point and found these while walking on a sandbar. They seemed really unique so I tried to look them up and haven't found anything.
  14. Four small items...item no two...

    I am not sure if this is anything or not but it looks like a piece of something found west of Houston Texas in gravel from Brazos river
  15. Found a messload of these odd half rounds but with "edges" that seem to have partially folded in on themselves.....very odd. I first thought they were HUGE porocystic globularis, but they are more rough than any I have found, strictly halves and HUGE. When you look at the underside, it's almost like a rind of a fruit that has contracted in on itself, which still leads me to think it might be some kind of globularis. They were found in an area with thousands of the biggest orbitolina I've ever seen. Any one have any ideas what the heck these might be?? Thanks!!
  16. hello my name is Nathan this is my first post. I am new to this so let me know how to do better location: Pismo beach California 4' above high tide line on the beach first photo is about 8in across I believe is a vertebrae. maybe a whale? the 2nd photo is about about 6" wide and is 4' away from the vertebrae. I did some research and found out someone found a sea cow about 10 north from this find but it is not in the same kind of sediment the sea cow was found in sandstone. it seems that there is no one really interested in preserving this he explained that he watched them fall about for about 15yrs and now they are gone. Are fossils so common that people pic and choose what's worth saving? I can get more photos and bring a tape measure its only a 4 min walk from my house. It would not let me add my other photos. thanks for your help
  17. Whale inner ear?

    Hey all! I was visiting a friend who owns a local rock and gem shop here in Edmonton. I guess he had purchased a small storage locker of Canadian minerals from a couple who bought a shop in the 70’s. In one one of the boxes was this weird thing. I asked him if he knew what it was and he had no information for it. No idea where it came from or what it even was. I asked if he would sell it to me and he said sure. I have a feeling it’s a whale’s inner ear bone?? Any help?
  18. Strange Tooth?

    Found these on Solomon’s Island in MD. I’m bad at identifying these, but I’m pretty sure the one on the right is snaggletooth? The arrow looking one is throwing me for a loop though. Anyone think they can help? I’ve included the front and back of the arrow shaped one.
  19. Estate sale grabs

    Went to an estate sale today to scope out a Paradoxoides gracilis that a friend spotted. Ended up being gone before I got there, which is for the best because after seeing the photos I wasn't sure how I was going to negotiate given the fact that it was a fake. (I still wanted it for cheap though, lol.) That being said, I did grab a few small fossils that they had for sale. They wanted 8$ a piece, but since they had an $8 price tag on a horn coral, I figured that 10$ for the whole pile was a better price. There are a few items here that I don't know so I am hoping that someone might recognize them or where they might've come from. As the owner was deceased, I could not get any information other than the fact that the previous owner traveled the world. First up: I don't know what this is. The texture and shape definitely says "fossil", the cross-section says "nothing". I don't know what it is or where it's from.
  20. This rock was found on a Coastal path in the Isle of Man. Any idea what this could be?
  21. Fossils from Tully, NY

    Hello everyone, I'm hoping someone can help out with identifying which fossils were found during our trip to Tully, NY a week ago. I'm also hoping someone can recommend a good book for fossil identification? The first fossil I'm pretty sure is a crinoid stem. I don't know if it's possible to identify what kind of crinoid just by looking at a stem from one. Fossil one, approximately 1 inch in length. Fossil two, approximately 1 3/4 inch wide. I have no idea what this is. Fossil three, approximately 2 inches long. I have no idea what this one is either. Fossil four, approximately 1 1/2 inch wide. I know it's shell but I would like to know which kind of shell. I apologize for the image quality. Fossil five, approximately 1/4 of an inch wide. I'm absolutely clueless as to what this could be.
  22. Hi, All. The photos below of the group shot, followed by some individual shots, are of my most recent acquisitions. Like many of the fossils I've acquired here in Niger, I don't have much of a clue what I'm looking at! As indicated in the title, these all came from the Agadez area of Niger - a current hotspot of dino discoveries. Unfortunately, it's also "hot" when it comes to danger from terrorism, so the supply of things coming out of the sand there has greatly decreased. Anyway, I don't want to flood the site with photos of all the things I don't have a clue about, but I thought I'd start with these. Thanks so much for your wisdom! Rob
  23. Help

  24. Need help with vertebra- I found it protruding from the Cretaceous mud at a creek in AL Saturday. I was very excited! It is about 1.75" wide at the longest, and 1" tall. So, what do I have here?
