  1. Another odd one

    Another odd one! It's the same kind of surface I've found before, tiny spikes and bumps, and the previous one was suggested as some kind of lichid.

  6. New Jersey Cretaceous Turtle Bone?

    Hello everyone, I found this bone while on a hunt in the cretaceous creeks of new jersey, very odd bone and definitely feels fossilized. My best guess is turtle but I am very unsure, I appreciate any feedback on this piece if it is Id'able thank you.

  8. Unkown Bone.

  9. 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.
  10. Plant vs Molusk (or neither!)

    Found this rock in Charmouth beach (south west coast of England) a few months ago. The period is early Jurassic and is generally dated to ~190m years ago. I gave it a friend and have got into a debate as to whether it is a fossilised plant or part of a mollusk. Can anyone help resolve this argument/confirm that I am right?! Thanks, J
  11. Hello there! Last month, I visited the Credit River in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada (Georgian Bay Formation, Upper Ordovician) to look for some fossilized corals. In addition to a bunch of weathered colonial rugose corals, I found an item that I think is something, but I'm not sure what - perhaps a sponge? Here are some photos of it: Side view - dry: Top view - dry: Top view - wet: Thanks so much! Monica
  12. Crystal or fossil?

    My family sent me this pic looking for ID, any idea what it is?
  13. I'm checking at this probable Crushed Dinosaur Egg, though I myself do not see the hallmark characteristics of an egg. The description says that bones and skin can are present. Just want to know what you guys think of it. The images are the top and bottom views Country: Argentina Formation: Rio Colorado Formation Period: Upper Cretaceous
  14. Fossil Fish: Neoproscinetes?

    Good day, I'd like some help to identify this fossil fish. It is nearly 11 inches long. From what I've searched it looks similar to Neoproscinetes, but I'm no master of fossil fishes. I'd like to know its species name and if it is indeed a real fossil fish.
  15. Fossils ID, Cornwall spine?

    A couple of spiny looking fossils in hard rock in Carlyon bay, Cornwall, near St. Austell. I know nothing about fossils so any input appreciated :-)

  21. 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.
  22. If someone finds a number of fossils that scientist can not ID, does the person that found them get to name them all if they turn out to be new a specie.?
  23. Jawbone

    Approximately 3" long piece of jawbone. Pointed teeth. I have more pictures, but I could only upload 1 due to file size.
  24. What is This?

    Hello, I am from Minnesota and on vacation in Florida, and I found these things on the ground. What are they? (Sorry if these are not even fossils and just a common rock or something)
  25. Hi, I am Joel, I am completely new to this forum, and I came here because I need some help on something I have been absolutely fascinated with. At work in St. Louis, Missouri, the other day, I found on our lot what I believe to be a chunk of limestone approx. 5" x 2-1/2" x 1-1/2" thick which has some VERY interesting features on one side, and I have spent the better part of the last few days searching the internet for images of fossils that resembled anything on this rock - and aside from the little 'seashell' at the one end, came up largely emptyhanded. I am not sure if the lines on this rock are plant, animal, or possibly even insect. I am sorry to say, this rock was not found in it's native strata, but rather plucked from the building's low-maintenance landscaping - they used crushed limestone as a topping in some areas outside the building, and this one, owing to it's large size, stood out. How long it has been exposed to the elements, I don't know, but I was amazed at how crisp the lines were, with depth, and sharpness, they don't seem to have experienced much weathering at all. I tried photographing the lines to pick up on that detail - the sharpness, but couldn't capture it - not enough zoom. One small possibility, at one end of our building, there IS a limestone outcropping - perhaps one of my coworkers was strolling on the property one day, stooped to examine a rock (this rock) recently calved from that outcropping, and just happened to carry it back towards the door, and dropping it amongst all the other bits of crushed limestone? I took a ton of photos, picked the best, reduced them and uploaded as many as allowed. Can anybody even suggest what I am looking at, and where I might find more information? Any help at this point would be a godsend! Joel H
