    Unusual Kem Kem Tooth

    Here is a tooth I acquired recently acquired. It was mixed in with a bunch of the usual kem kem stuff, gar scales, sawfish barbs, small damaged spino and croc teeth ect. This tooth stood out so I got it and wonder if anyone has any clues? The mesial serrations are smaller than the distal side and they stop about a quarter of the way up the tooth. About 13mm long base is 8 mm from distal to medial and 5 to 6 mm from lingual to labial end.

    Fossil or erosion?

    Found this today while out rock-hounding...not really sure if it is a fossil or just an eroded piece of limestone (I believe)?

    Is this a Cephlapod?

    I live in Maineville, Ohio and have been collecting fossils since childhood. I can easily ID bryozoans, crinoids, brachiopods, trilobites, and cephlapods as I've seen many throughout my life. However, this one has me stumped. It was found in our neighborhood, and I was told by the Ohio Fossils Facebook page that it's a cephlapod. However, no one seems to recognize the rows of circles along the side and top, so they suggested I come here. Does anyone know what this could be? If it's a cephlapod, what kind is it?

    What could these be?

    Hello! I found these two (nearly) identical pieces in an area west of Albuquerque, New Mexico, that would have been the eastern shoreline of the Laramidia continent during the cretaceous. I checked on a geologic map, and the exposed area is all cretaceous sediments. These samples are very hard, despite their seemingly brittle shape, and do not break or disintegrate even when I apply a lot of force to them. They have no other remarkable markings other than their very unusual shape. Do you have any ideas what they could be? Thank you!

    Weird stuff/cool stuff

    I have some pictures of weird creatures that I had been collecting online(pictures, not creatures), but never getting around to anything with them, and I keep having to delete them to make room, so I figured I'd just make a thread dedicated to the idea, instead of a thread each time there's a crazy knew whatever I come across. Please feel free to give any info or thoughts, answers or questions about anything brought up, and if there's any weird or particularly cool creature you want to mention, go ahead and post about it, preferably with a picture. it's ok if you don't have a pict

    Worn ammonite whorl?

    This caught my eye today. It's probably just a very worn ammonite section, but i picked it up just incase.

    Identification assistance

    Total amature here. Found this unusual stone in a local field in The Scottish central belt area near a river. It is a heavy stone with weird curves on either side and a sort of glaze on these side surfaces. Seems a bit weird and unlike any stones I have seen in the area. It is reasonably symmetrical but not 100% - but wondering if some of that could be down to erosion . The outer side has a few unusual small pits. Interested to hear any opinions. Fully prepared to just go back to my day job. :-)

    Super tricky fossil shark tooth ID

    Hi guys, I posted this tooth a few months ago with the hopes of getting an ID. I heard some people say meg, and maybe some great white and chubutensis. I dismissed it, but yesterday when sorting through some of my shark teeth, I came across another one like it. Now I am fairly convinced it is none of those species. The strange curves of the enamel near the root, the incredibly long ends of the root, the lack of a real bourlette like a meg or a chub. The teeth are too similar to a meg in shape to be a great white, and can't be megs because they have no bourlette. I figured the first one might b
  11. I found this specimen in a dry portion of a river bed. Have any of you ever seen a piece of petrified wood that looks like this? I'll add a link to a video proving that it is mineral and not just a piece of wood. https://youtu.be/28Y5XUQ223w

    Penn Dixie trace fossil?

    Finally getting around to posting a pic of a piece I found at last weekends "Dig with the Experts" (I was there Saturday wearing my FF shirt). Along with several enrolled Eldredgeops, a nice prone one, a few brachs and snails, I brought this piece home as well. It isn't the easiest to get a good pic of, but I showed it to several people there including other FF members and the PD staff and nobody had seen anything quite like it. The consensus is that it's a trace but the ridge running along the middle is what's causing people to scratch their heads. Has anyone ever seen a similar example? Than

    Unusual fossil

    Greetings, This is my first post and I am honored to be a part of this forum community. My goal is to be a courteous, respectful member of the forum - benefiting from, and deeply appreciating the vast amount of knowledge, expertise, and valued opinions shared on this site, and I hope I may have the opportunity to contribute something useful in the future. I received this fossil from my cousin several years ago and though I once knew what it was, I can no longer remember. Your thoughts and suggestions to what it is are greatly appreciated. Thank you.
  15. Hi all, Location: West Somerset Coast. Length approx 4 inches. Geology is Blue Lias but i was so far out to sea that it may be late triassic 0_o We've had very low tides here of late which have stripped the mud layer and have been exploring the revealed rock beds found a full bed of devils toenails, alongside modern day oysters.. Also found this, which is not like anything encountered down there before. Sorry in advance for the poor images, the specimen remains in situ.. What interests me is (all of it!) .. the apparent uniformity and the small circular de

    Nevada Desert Fossil??

    This was found in Pahrump Nevada. Can anyone tell me what it is? Please?
  17. So I fo u nd this and compared them to the local fossil charts and it doesnt match any of them. Someone have any idea?
  18. Hi there! Can someone please tell me what this is? Found on the shore of the Texas dike among a scattered pile of sun bleached bones. Thought it was interesting, and would like to know what it came from. I am fairly sure it is not fossilized, but figured I'd give it a shot. Fossilized or not it's pretty cool. Thanks! Lauren
  19. ok so i have just recieved a rough unsearched lot of New Jersey Cretaceous amber, and this particular inclusion caught my eye. at first i thought it could possibly be just a misty part of the amber but no, it definitely has a solid shape. strange round object with a protrusion from the middle that seems to have small hairlike things coming off the protrusion. i've been talking to vermiculosis about this inclusion and he says that it looked fungal at first, but he wasn't sure. if you need better pictures let me know as i'm working on the piece to bring you just that. the inclusion is white and
  20. Found in a dry creek-bed in Gene Autry in Carter county Oklahoma. Washita Valley just south of the Arbuckle Mountains. I think it is a meteor of some sort but not sure and would like help identifying this item please if anyone knows or could help. The top of it was laying next to the larger piece all in pristine shape and fits like a glove. There appears to be rust on it and it is a reddish color. The inside is hard and heavier. It makes my HD camera go weird with the color. Not sure why that happens. The settings are correct. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_kgA3OgAJsk&context=C4cc8ccf
