  1. 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
  2. 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!!
  3. 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
  4. 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?
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. This rock was found on a Coastal path in the Isle of Man. Any idea what this could be?
  8. 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.
  9. 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
  10. Help

  11. 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?
  12. Strange item I found near a phacops

    I’m not sure what this is but I found it splitting shale that has trilobites and cephalopods and I think it’s devonian age. Hoping the pictures are good enough. It reminds me of a tooth from something I had seen a while ago...
  13. Fossil from kansas

    Not sure what these are. Maybe some sort of Bryozoa stem? I have hunted for years here in kansas and never come across this it's little round black balls in rows
  14. Shells

    This is one of the roadside rocks I picked up. I see what appears to be an oyster shell but, as for the other items I have no idea. I would appreciate any help you can give.
  15. Ammonite Id

    Hi there folks. I was wondering if it is possible to ID the following ammonite. Bought from that auction website with no further info... =\
  16. This little fishy

    Greetings! I was totally captivated by this and snapped it up at our Gem Society Auction, a donation , and I have no information on it. Appears to be in a slab of shale? Imprint is about 3" long (pen next to it in photo 1 to show width of slab) Photo 3 is the backside of it. Any help appreciated - especially just to know if I was an implusive idiot to bid on this!
  17. Unknown Brachiopod

    Unknown brachiopod, looking for an ID. Any & all help is appreciated!
  18. Mystery Fossil

    My dad got this from a friend and gave it to me. He has no clue where it came from other than it came somewhere around idaho. Me and him have been trying to identify it for days, and got nowhere. we need help. any hints on ID will help. Thanks!! (P.S. if you know anything about its worth, tell me please!)
  19. Tooth from Morocco- what is it?

    Saw this for sale- ID as unknown dinosaur from Morocco. It is 0.7" long. Anyone know what this might be?
  20. Spiral fossil

    Found just south of Adairsville, GA I have no idea what it is, but it's something.
  21. Texas Cretaceous ID Help please

    Two fossils found at separate sites in Central Texas that look similar enough to me to think they are the same? Any thoughts on what this might be an impression of? Doesn't seem to correspond to any shell or urchin I know of. Thank you for any information!
  22. 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.
  23. 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
