  1. Unknown stone with fossils

    Hi I know nothing about fossils etc, I was on Charmouth beach this morning and found this. I have more photos and it has fossils in the quartz inside as well. Can any one help what it is etc thanks matt
  2. Bone identification

    Hey everyone, I was wanting to see if this bone is able to be identified by anyone. Seller does not know what it is or where it’s from, but it’s listed as possible dinosaur. I know it’s probably a long shot with the lack of information, but I thought it was worth a try. Seller says it’s 190 mm long. Thanks.
  3. Need to identify

    Can you guys identify this for me please? thank you! Very weird species. My observations: skull and dentition resembling modern felines, with eye sockets to the front and sharp teeth pointing to carnivores. If you look at the feet, knees and lung, the lungs are thin on top then enlarge at the bottom, the knees are similar to ours (bent to the front) instead of cats (bent to the back) and has large long feet. These three factors indicate the possibility of a biped specimen? Notice how each feet has one finger with an extra bone, like some dinosaurs, maybe housed a claw? However, the Waist bone and spine bending at the beginning of the waist bone show that the species is more inclined to walk on all fours. The problem is that this fossil is lacking arms, with no presence or indicator of even a shoulder socket (weird, or possible?). I am confused! Please help
  4. First finds from the field

    While working with some family not too long ago, my father pointed me towards a small natural spring of a trail. I finally got to visit it and I was surprised to see that, just below the crystal clear water's surface, embedded in limestone, were dozens upon dozens of fossil shells. I spent close to an hour making some observations about the rock and any layers I observed before noticing that the pool went under the far side, almost like a tunnel. I looked just beyond and there was another small pool of water. Between the two was a natural bridge made from limestone. The far pool was much like the first, crystal clear and having dozens of fossils just below the surface. I spent a small amount of time in the shallows to pick a few loose samples up. I wasn't able to spend much time there, but it was enjoyable and hopefully the next time I get to find a bit more variety. But for now, I am off to collect some information about formations in the area!
  5. Unknown Newcastle fossils. Possibly leaves?

    These were found at Newcastle, NSW, Australia. Does anyone have an idea as to what they might be? Each little segment is a few mm in width and 1-2cm long.
  6. What do you make of this?

    Recieved a bundle of Mazon Creek nodules and found one I can't seem to ID. Object is 3cm across and comes up to a shallow cone shape similar to a very old volcano/cinder cone. Any ideas?
  7. odd one

    this is beautiful and i need help with what it might be honeymoon island fla
  8. Sharks Vertebras

    I received these vertebras form a lady that lives in Colonial Beach, Va. and close to George Washington's Birthplace. I was told they are sharks vertebras but I am doubtful. Can someone identify them? I'll post the other vertebrae in the next post.
  9. Hi! I’m new on here and not super familiar with fossils. However, today I was walking on the beach in Hatteras Village, Hatteras Island, North Carolina (a part of the Outerbanks). I stumbled upon what appears to be an old bone of some sort. For the life of me, I can’t figure out what type of bone it is/which animal it is from. Any ideas?? The photo is posted below. For some reason, the other photos won’t upload, so I will try to upload them in the replies hopefully.
  10. I got this fossil as part of a collection I bought and so have no idea where it was found. I have attached pictures of both sides of it. It is roughly 6cm wide and has a depth of abouth 3cm. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  11. Possibly Coral-like Invertebrate? ID Request

    Hi everyone! I have attached some photos of my first ever fossils! I've been finding fossils of this same species in this one riverbank for years, and have always wanted to know what they are. I did some research- looked through sites detailing some of the more common fossils, and image searches of coral fossils since the texture seemed kinda reminiscent- but nothing seemed to me to look anything like it. I tried to guess with the coral thing, but honestly I can't even place these as animal or plant with any confidence. So now I've come to this awesome site! Thank you all for putting your time into helping people like me out with this, I really appreciate it. I'd love to here any ideas you have! Here's what I do know: When- on the geological map, this area was right on the border between Cretaceous and the indistinguishable riot of eras in the Rocky Mountains that was usually labeled simply Undifferentiated Mesozoic. Where- In a bank of river rocks on the shore of the Clearwater River, in the eastern foothills of the Canadian Rocky Mountains in Alberta, northwest of Sundre. Some Observations- some are circular, some are like a long slug shape, and some are somewhere in between like an elongated circle. The textures/patterns are all similar between them, and I suspect they may be related? The idea occurred to me that the circular ones may simply be slug-shapes seen in cross-section. Whatever they are, there are sure a lot of them- I find a few types of fossil out there, but these are by far the most numerous. I have a single large rock that must have several dozen of various sixes and shapes. Other fossils found there appear in the exact same type of rock, with dark grey background and white fossils. Some of these fossils have vaguely resembled limpets and chitons or other similar-looking creatures, with distinctly grooved shells like a mollusk, possibly supporting the idea that this might be from an aquatic habitat. There is a distinct directionality in the slug-shaped ones- the texture on the 'head' is more even and regularly rounded, while the 'tail' texture is more spiky and elongated. Most have fewer/fainter holey texturing toward the middle of the 'body', but some have holes through the whole thing. The largest is a bit over 3 cm long. Let me know if you need anything else from me! I can provide more pictures, if you feel that would be helpful. I'm very excited to here back from you! Thanks in advance, and have a nice day.
  12. animal skull in northern scandinavia

    Hi! I suppose this is going to be a piece of cake for professionals like you. However this specimen who has most likely met a very violent end in the woods of northern scandinavia stilll remains unidentified to this day. Would anyone be kind enough to take the time to help? (Second picture follows)
  13. Is this some sort of tooth?

    I found this on a knoll overlooking a lake. It looks a little like a fossilized tooth to me. Any thoughts?
  14. Hello! I'm wondering if any of these shells are known to ONLY be found in shallow water. If so, which one? And how shallow are we talking-- 10 meters? 100 meters? Found near the Azores, depth unknown. Some forams can be used for scale. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
  15. Found this in Western South Dakota, someone suggested it might be Stromatolites? Anyone know? Thanks!
  16. Hello all, I've recently acquired what appears to be a dinosaur bone. I've been told it was found by a mineral excavator in an abandoned mine/cave in the Rhodope mountains Bulgaria. It's 30cmX20cmX20cm and weighs around 10kg. I'd be grateful for any possible insight. Many thanks!
  17. Possible Fossilized Tooth?

    Found what might be a tooth fossilized in the Upper Michigan area at Lake Superior.
  18. Id?

    Found at Myrtle Beach South Carolina this year, thought oh wonderful another piece of turtle shell but it just doesn't fit the profile I'm familiar with. Any ideas welcome!
  19. Unknown

    Another find from a beach at Lake Champlain in Vermont that I originally thought to be just a cool rock but now I see it's a fossil of something, any ideas welcome!
  20. Unknown

    another find from one of my past visits to Myrtle beach South Carolina, I have no clue on this one
  21. Found in Jefferson County, MO

    I found this in my grandmother’s field in Jefferson County, MO about 27 years ago. I have no idea what it could be. I had to add three tags, so I added toe since my brother always laughed and said that’s what I had found. Haha. I don’t even have an uneducated guess as to what it could be, but I ruled out a giant’s toe a long time ago. Any ideas on what this is? It’s about 3” long. The pitted part doesn’t stick to my tongue, but the white/brown part does which seems weird. Any help would be appreciated!
  22. ID?

    Found on a beach at Lake Champlain, thought it was just a cool rock at first but now I'm pretty sure it's a fossil, maybe some trilo piece? The shale on these beaches has some very interesting little finds.
  23. ID?

    Every time I fossil hunt at Myrtle Beach I find a ton of these, so many that I stop picking them up after a while, but I have no idea what they are. Any ideas would be great!
  24. Odd shaped tiny fossil

    Found this tiny little thing at Myrtle beach South Carolina, any ideas on what it is? It's about 3mm
  25. Is this a fossil?

    Many years ago, a friend from Arizona gave me this item. He didn't know what it is but thought it interesting. Memory fails as to exactly where he found it but he lives in northwest Arizona. I came across it in a box recently and would like to know if it is a fossil or not. Forgive the quality of the photos but it's the best I can do with what I have at the moment. I can take better photos later if anyone needs to see better. (I've labelled the three attached photos arbitrarily as top, bottom, and front.) Can anyone identify this item for me? Thanks, Bill
