  1. 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.
  2. Possible kinzer formation by Oregon dairy Lancaster pa. Can someone take a look at this and see what it might be?
  3. 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
  4. Puzzler

    Here is a tooth I have had for several years, not really knowing how to label. Found in Ernst East Quarry, Bakersfield, California ( mid. Miocene, approx. 15mya) I have read some topics on Physogaleus contortus symphseal mistaken for the Megachasma teeth, but this one doesn't seem to fall into that category. As you can see it has a huge root compared to the crown, zero serrations and in fact doesn't even have what you may call a "cutting blade" at all ( crown is oblong). 20mm from base of root to tip of crown. Crown is 8mm wide, 13mm long. I would like to finally label thus guy and am seeking your expertise on the matter. Thank you in advance for any enlightenment you may offer. @MarcoSr @Al Dente @siteseer
  5. This fossil is from Quqing of Yunnan, China. It measures 15x20cm. Is it a horseshoe crab, shell or what?
  6. Acorn?

    I found this in a box at a thrift store. Any idea if it’s s fossil ?
  7. sponge or crinoid?

    sponge or crinoid? ... the way I am looking at is the small part is a stem?...and then the cup shape the other end?....or is the large cup shape is where it attached to something? and the small stem part is just that the base of a stem or it could be another miss.
  8. is this anything or a odd tiny pebble?

    is this anything but a odd tiny pebble? location west of Houston...Brookshire....in a gravel load from the Brazos River. more close up photos to follow......
  9. Strangest piece I’ve ever found

    This is a long shot but I am hoping anyone can give me an idea of what they think this is. I found it on the beach of Sandy Hook Raritan Bay. I’m posting several pictures. Thank you for any ideas!
  10. Unidentified shark tooth

    Hi I am a new member and hoping for some suggestions. I found this shark tooth at Sandy Hook beach in N.J. I have been searching online to try to id it with nothing conclusive. There are no serrations on the sides of the tooth however I am not sure if this is due to excessive tumbling in the ocean water. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
  11. two tiny fragments

    the round one not ideas at all but the brown one possibly turtle?...only problem there is is the ridges did turtles have ridges?.. or could this be something else?.
  12. I dont know

    Hello, Im sorry but have no experience in fossils or geology. I was hiking around Rainbow Basin in southern california high desert near Barstow. I found this in a wash. It doesnt look like any rock I have seen. Not sure if it is a fossil or anything at all. It is about 23 centimeters long and 18 centimeters wide. If you could please help it would be appreciated thanks.
  13. Petrified Human Part?

    I found what seems to be a fossilized human body part, not sure though. It seems to be something, but not quite sure what. Do you think it's just rock? It is rock, but do you think it's a fossilized human part? A museum I sent a picture to said it was just a rock, but I don't know if they would really want to tell me.
  14. Found in the woods in Fairborn Ohio.
  15. I believe these are sandstone formations? but not sure of type fresh of the ground last night.
  16. I have polished a few slabs today and stumbled over a group of mysterious, tiny fossils. They are in a rudist-bearing limestone clast, width of specimen is 85 mm, they are located a little bit from the center of the specimen toward the lower left corner. Age is Campanian. In the slab 3 mm away from this one, there is nothing to see of them. I am counting 5 large ones and possibly 3-4 small ones, arranged in 2 or 3 rows. They consist of a thick-walled bubble with a very conspicious plug projecting towards the center of the bubble. One of them has a very conspicous stem and maybe one of the small bubbles has also a stem. The largest bubble has an outer diameter of about 3 mm. Bubbles and the steem appear to be segmented, each segment seems to consist of a single calcite crystal, somewhat resembling echnoid sceletal material. The more often I look at them, the more I think they are tiny crinoids??... But I am probably totally wrong. I tried to make a higher resolution scan and a photo with my scrapy camera at highest resoulution, but without great success. Sorry, better photos are not available. Suggestions - despite the poor photos - are highly appreciated. Thanks! Franz Bernhard
  17. what is this looks like fancy poo

    this is interesting fancy poo or a plant?..crystal or what?
  18. partial crab or?

    partial crab or ? it is a dark blue color..the coin is a quarter. mmmm look at the rich creamy center...lol...well looks that way anyway.
  19. I can't seem to find an ID for this find. I believe this may be a siphuncle. What do you guys think? The "V" shaped sutures are really throwing me off. Has anyone seen a straight shelled cephalopod with this "V" pattern? Kinda neat how you can see how this was buried, preserving one side as it weathered the other. Then along came a dozen crinoids or so a used it as a nice base.
  20. total mystery (asterozoan?)

    I found it today in gravel on a parking lot in Poland. Age remains uncertain, as the rocks present were all erratic boulders. What can that be? An asterozoan, perhaps?
  21. fossil id request

    found southern indiana area
  22. Me again guys, I have a few fragments of a copper like color, smooth but porous on the inside specimens which i thought might me coprolites. It could also be geologic, smelting bog or something. But found well underground near the Testudines Sp. fragments posted on Saturday. Could you take a look and give me some ideas?
  23. Unknown

    Found in Kent County, Maryland near Worton. I have no idea what made the impression. The rock's girth is about that of a soda can top.
