  1. Mazon Creek ID

    Today I was I was cracking open my daily allotment of Mazon Creek concretions and I came across this piece and I don't recall finding anything like it in the past. I was thinking that it is possibly a seed, but again I have not found anything like it before. What do you think? @fiddlehead , @RCFossils , @fossilized6s @Rob Russell
  2. What could this be.

    While fossil hunting at the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains in North Carolina, I came across this critter. I don't think it's a Crinoid, as the little groves and very tiny, even compared to some small Crinoids that I found. I'm thinking of some sort of Centipede type creature, but have no Idea. Any thoughts or help would be greatly appreciated. I was tickled to find something a tiny bit different. Thanks in advance Joe
  3. What could this be?

    Hello everyone! I found this thing in Estonia, near Ohessaare by the sea. Hopefully someone will be able to identify itE. If you need more information or better photos, just tell and I'll try my best to provide them
  4. Identification please!

    I've had been in possession of this for almost 20 years now and never knew for certain if it was just a rock or if it was a fossil. I unfortunately do not remember how I even obtained it since it was so long ago so I don't know where it originated from. Any insight into what it is will be greatly appreciated!! It's about 3.5 cm x 3 cm.
  5. Fish ID

    I saw these two fish swimming around in the sea of products of our favorite auction site, and they were so low priced I had to get them. The problem is the seller only said "found in country side", so I'm hoping with a little bit (or a lot) of help from you guys we can figure it out. They are not in my hands yet, so I can't get more/better pics. Thanks 1. 2.
  6. Florida bone

    Found this in Manatee county. Not sure what it is from or is. It is broken on one end and the other appears to be some sort of growth plate.
  7. found in Hell Creek, MT

    Hi, I have no clue on this one. I was out on private land near Jordan MT. I found this rock which is unlike any other in the area. I spent two days on the property and found nothing else even remotely close to this. The land owner has had several Triceratops and Tyrannosaurus taken from his land. He didn't know what this was either. I thought it might be coprolite but I don't see any chunks of material. It looks like the core is darker with this lighter brown outside. It's relatively dense compared to most of the rocks I was picking up. It's about 7" long and 3.75" wide at base. I am thinking about cutting it. I'd be most appreciative if someone could help. Thanks!! Frank
  8. From a friend in Utah

    A friend gave these to me and said his mother Found them years ago when they lived in Utah. Other than that I have no idea of their origin. Any help in Identification would be greatly appreciated.
  9. Removing excess material

    I have a fossil I attempted to get identified to no avail unfortunately, but I would still like to see if I can possibly expose it more. I removed it from the shale at the Montour fossil pit in Danville, PA. It has a lot of that orange rock like material(sorry about not knowing proper terminology ) and I was wondering if there is any good method to expose it more and make it all nice and pretty . Would it best to attempt to remove it from the rest of the rock of leave some attached to it? All help is greatly appreciated thanks in advance!
  10. Help Identifying Dino fossil

    I would appreciate any help in identifying this fossil. My father purchased it somewhere in the Western US during the 1960's or earlier, but unfortunately I do not have any provenance. It sat in a display case until my parents passed away a few years ago. Due to space limitations, these are low-res pictures, but i'm willing to take different perspectives/resolutions as needed. My apologies for the poor tags... I truly appreciate the help! Best Regards,
  11. Shark teeth

    I just bought 3 shark teeth from the gift shop in our local museum earlier today. No idea where they're from or if they're even fossils. But for $2.16 US each, not really a major issue if they aren't fossils. Tooth 1 is 1.5 inches long x 1.25 inches wide, tooth 2 is 1.75 inches long x 1.5 inches wide & tooth 3 is 1.5 inches long x just shy of 1.5 inches wide. Tooth 2 has a few hairs stuck to the back of the root area, so I guess we could maybe get DNA if they're fake. Each has both front & back views. Looks like you can see part way through the enamel of tooth 1. Go easy on me if I got ripped off for $6.48
  12. Partial sand dollar with extra

    I've had this for years, tucked away & had forgotten about it. Partial sand dollar with beautiful markings. Looking at it now, I see something on the underside that has me curious. At first they (2 of them) looked like small agates, which seemed odd. A closer look shows what appears to be something inside. There are the usual partial shells & probable steinkerns, but these 2 things are different. I've focused mainly on the larger of the two since it's easier to photograph for me, using a few different angles. I'll let you be the judge on them. Am I just seeing thing's or is there really something in there? Found on the NW Oregon coast.
  13. Crab fossil maybe?

    Hello! My brother and I have gone to Big Brook in NJ a couple a times, and stumbled on this. My brother is convinced it is a crab, while I am still on the fence about it. I've done some searching online and never found any records of a whole crab shell, so it'll be nice to get some identification. Thanks!
  14. Found near Mulbring Quarry, NSW. What are they?

    What are these shell looking things? I really have no idea however if it helps they were found alongside some bryozoans.
  15. West coast Scotland find I.d.

    Hi, a friend of mine found this on the West Coast of Scotland. The ‘egg’ shaped bit is approximately the size of a grapefruit. Any ideas what it may be. Many thanks.
  16. Final batch of fossils from work. Even though there's only 2 left, these should be interesting at least. I have a bunch of other fossils, but because of what I've learned already I ID'd the others on my own. I'm not really sure what this one is, but it almost seems like a fragment of one of those spiral/circular shells because of the slight curvature. Any ideas? (My work is moving offices, so I don't have a ruler on hand. Earbud for size reference.) (1/2)
  17. College internship fossils

    I think this is some type of coral. Its eight inches in length 1&3/4width the fossil is two tubes that run parrel with each other but still is attached in the middle. Inside the tubes, there are hollow in the center may be for transportation of water and nutrients or something.
  18. Sea fan and crinoid?

    It looks like it could be a small crinoid, but the structure next to it has me stumped. Crinoids don't branch off like that, do they? Reminds me a little of a modern sea fan. Probably Michigan/Indiana as usual. (7/8)
  19. Yet another coral from the Michigan/Indiana area. Last one, I swear. Probably. This one is kind of an odd, buckeye shape. It's worn fairly smooth, but I think I see tabulae. (5/8)
  20. Another small coral from Michigan/Indiana. It's different from the other ones in that the imprints are really small, and only on that one side. Any idea what kind it is? (3/8)
  21. Small coral chunk. Tabulate?

    I have a small coral chunk here, probably from the Michigan/Indiana area like the others. It looks similar to a tabulate coral, in my extremely limited knowledge. Any thoughts? (2/8)
  22. Time for the second batch! Hopefully these should be a little more interesting than the medley of corals from two days ago, but there are still a few corals to be identified. At any rate, I have a weird imprint fossil here that I'm not sure of. Probably from the Michigan/Indiana area like the others. Any ideas? (1/8)
  23. Tooth?

    hey just cleaning some peice and was wonder what this is
  24. Unknown fossil with crinoids

    Time for the second batch of fossils that I've found out on the job. I have four to upload today and this is the first. I think I found this near the Michigan/Indiana border. There are two crinoid columnals in the rock next to the darker structure. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
  25. Is this fossil? Or iron minerals?

    Found in NSW Australia. Is it a fossil or just an interesting iron mineral?
