Rock or petrified toe???
abeski02 posted a topic in Fossil IDMy dad found this rock in the Vermillion River in Illinois last weekend during a camping trip. While my dad insists it's a petrified toe or a toe that was possibly covered in mud then compressed (or something of the like???? I'm not quite sure...), I personally think it's just a rock. Can someone please help officially determine what exactly it is? Thank you! -Abby

Please Help! Possible Fossil Vertebra or Coral?
Chloe posted a topic in Fossil IDHi everyone! I am new here & new to fossil hunting. I recently gravitated towards this & threw it in my backpack on a hike near the Vermillion River in Hastings MN. Upon cleaning it up, I immediately thought it was part of a vertebra due to the shape but I thought it could also be some type of coral. Would love some feedback! Thanks!!
