  1. 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.
  2. Found this stone among the stones in a decorative border around a relative's yard in NJ. Have no idea where these stones originated. Any thoughts would be helpful. Possible fossil is 3 inches long and 3/4 inch at its widest.
  3. Is this a fossil?

    I'm not sure if this is a fossil, but i have been looking at this rock for a few years wondering if it may be a fossil or part of one. I have taken a few pictures to help anyone with potential ID. It is clearly quite porous, which makes me think it is either a fossil or an old bone that has been weathered, but then it almost seems like there are some rocks in it. Any ID help is appreciated.
  4. Odd Fossil

    Hello, So, I was in Kemmerer Wyoming doing a fossil dig, I went to the place on fishdig.com I found many fossils. Ono of them, is very odd, and no one there could ID it. Can someone try to help me ID this fossil? Is it a messed up fish? Jared
  5. Mazon Creek Unknown

    This is my first non-Essexella find so far. Or at least non-indistinguishable-blob find that is. That said, I have absolutely now idea what it is. It looks vaguely familiar but I can’t put my finger on it. I hope the pictures are decent enough, if not I can try again. I uploaded some with a contrast boost as some of the details are faint.
  6. Heyo! Found on the river banks of Humber river in Toronto, Canada I came across this rock this weekend and I was not sure if it was anything special or just a peculiar shaped rock. After some hesitation I decided to pick it up just in case. It has a very distinct wave looking shape to it and the texture on the 'wavy' surface seems rather fossil-esque but I wasn't sure as the cross section doesn't seem to show much of anything. If I had to take a guess I would say its either a coral or maybe its an imprint of some-kind? Let me know what you think If its anything worth keeping or just random rocks: /\ These two pictures show the general shape and size of the piece. /\ These two pictures show the close-up texture on the surface of both sides. /\ This is the side/cross section. Thanks for the help! -Em
  7. Morocco crocodile????

    This is a “pterosaurs” jaw I got as a gift a little bit ago. It was sold as a pterosaurs jaw with composite teeth the species is Siroccopteryx But Am almost 100% sure that it is wrongly identified it looks like a crocodile jaw maybe. So if someone can help me identify the jaw that would be amazing. It was found in the kem kem beds and is 2.3 inches long
  8. Unknown Green River fish

    When I was preparing this fossil I didn’t 100% know what it was but now am even more confused. The vertebrae’s do not match up with the fossil and the body seems pretty weird to. So if anyone could help me with this fish that would be awesome. And no it’s not a fake a prepared it myself.

  10. Hello there! I was inspired by @markjw to check out the Credit River here in Mississauga, Ontario (Georgian Bay Formation, Upper Ordovician) because where I normally hunt there are typically no corals and I'd love to add a couple to my collection. Consequently, I went out for about an hour this morning before the family got up in order to try my luck, and I'm happy to say that I was successful!!! Based on information provided by @FossilDAWG in other threads here on TFF, I think all of my colonial rugose corals are Favistina calcina - here are photos of three of my specimens: Specimen #1 - side view: Specimen #2 - top and bottom views: Specimen #3 - top and bottom views: more to come...
  11. Possible fossil find

    As a newbie first of all Hello everybody Today I was hiking and found an interesting rock along side the old mine road. Knowing that this type of rock may contain crystals I had it split open. It was quite a big rock, but the crystals were so tiny I could hardly see them...so anyway I was about to dispose of it when I noticed something unusual. To me it looks like a piece of a small perforated skin...but to be honest I have no clue what it might be... Any thoughts?
  12. Found this in 2012 somewhere in northwest Alabama, while tromping around. I've no idea what it is, but it looked like some kind of tooth in bone. The big protrusion looks rough and kind of like cement, but looking closer it appears to go into the "bone" area, like a regular tooth. I'm more of a rockhound, but this was too unusual to not pick up. Any help with identifying it would be greatly appreciated.
  13. My brother collects rocks, I however do not. I was at a local auction and there were a number of neat rocks I purchased a bunch and turns out for the most part I did really well. However, this one neither of us knew about but given they came from a museum I was hopeful, the label reads “Petrified turtle eggs, sack of three eggs, Lamedeer, Montana.” I have a whole five bucks invested into it so it won’t hurt me if it’s just a rock.
  14. Need Help IDing Hell Creek Dino Bone

    I have a fossil found in the Hell Creek Formation in South Dakota. Through studying I have not found a bone that matches mine in any known Hell Creek dinosaur. The bone is 8 1/4 inches tall, 5 inches long, and a width of 1 3/4 inches. The fossil weighs 2 lbs and 14.2 ounces. My belief is that it is from an ornithischian, possibly a ceratopsian or an ornithopod. It has a large hole in it for bone marrow, and at first glance looks like a human hip bone. Please help ID my fossil! Thanks!!!! -Carnoraptor
  15. Hello, a couple of weeks ago I bought a piece of amber. All the seller told me was that he had no idea what it could be. It has some cracks, I presume that’s why he sold it to me for a really low price. The piece is less than an inch in length. It is from the early cenomanian (98-99 million years old). It comes from the Hukawng Valley in northern Myanmar.
  16. 45 year old mystery

    My dad found this on a construction site over 45 years ago and it got stuck in a drawer and never identified. We used to jokingly call it the caveman finger but I’m sure it’s just some sort of geological formation. Any clues?
  17. Unknown Hell Creek Fossils

    Any information on the following finds would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
  18. UFO from pliocene marine sediments

    Hi everyone, I can't identify these fossils. They come from Pliocene marine sediments. What they are? Size of the biggest one 1.5 cm Thanks!
  19. seed?...shell? or other?

    found this little thingy on a pebble but have no idea if it is anything what do you think? found in gravel from Brazos river west of Houston Texas.
  20. Hi guys! Fossil ID Please

    I've had this fossil in my draw for a couple of weeks and curiosity has got the better of me and I'm dying to figure out what it is, I've researched what I believe it could be and keep reaching dead ends. Any help would be appreciated! I discovered this odd shaped fossil a couple of weeks back and I'm bewildered what it could be or could be part of. It was found either on the isle of sheppey or folkston my fossils kind of got jumbled up from the day so I can't be certain. But location might help with identification. Any help will be much appreciated!
  21. Ordovician Unknown

    On my Sunday exploration, I came across a cliff that exposed something I had never seen before. These specimens were in a very narrow band (4 inches thick) and the hard limestone reminded me of Maquoketa as opposed to Galena. They have a spongish look to it but they also remind me of a recepticulite, similar to Tetragonis sulcata. I forgot my size marker. These are about thumb size if you have short stubby thumbs like me!!
  22. Hello friends- I recently found this oddball fossil at an estate sale, of course the info on it was missing. SO I have no idea what I have. The "scale" skin lines almost look as if someone scratched them on, but I wonder why the heck someone would do that when there are definite fossil elements. I could be wrong. Sorry for the rather bad photos. I will take more detailed shots soon. Thanks for any help with this piece.
  23. Large vertebra

    I find lots of these and never know what kind of critter they came from. Definitely fossilized
  24. Rock or fossil?

    The more I look at this I just can’t help but think that it is something more than just a pretty rock. What do you guys think?
  25. Hi all, I thought I would start off with my most recent find and one that has been making me crazy trying to figure out what it is. It is obviously a pelvic area from some mammal. The rear part of it looks like mammoth but I can’t find anything on the web that looks like that front area with the beaklike bone. My first attempt at posting pics on here so hopefully this works. I realize it is upside down but it is too delicate to flip over
