    Is this a vertebra or something else?

    Found what might be a vertebra yesterday- let me know what yall think with these photos! It looks like it’s about 2 and a half inches tall, or about 6.35 centimeters. It looks like it’s 2.56 centimeters long. Both are just my closest estimates, so take them with a grain of salt-

    Strange, hollow fossil?

    Hi, amateur fossil hunter here (haven’t even been doing it for a month now) so i need a little help with trying to figure out what this fossil is. I’m most certain it is a fossil due to the hollow, almost tube/funnel like shape of it. From what i know on human anatomy, it could maybe be a phalanx of something? Maybe i’m just getting my hopes up. these are the photos next to a q-tip, which is 4 inches. (I know that’s a terrible way to measure things but it’s the best thing i’ve got.)

    Weird Dinosaur Bone

    I may have posted this one before so apologies I can’t remember, I’m just so curious about it. I thought maybe a strange vert but now I’m not sure. maybe just an unidentifiable chunkosaur. Dinosaur park fm

    ID help vertebra?

    Can any one ID this bone? I found it on Caspersen Beach 3/15/23. It looks petrified. I love the find, but have no clue what it is! Also theese are the big shark teeth of the day. Bull, great white, baby megaladon? Any help would be great!!

    Tiny vertebra

    Hi all, This tiny vert comes from the Lance formation in Weston co, Wyoming. It's about 0.25"x0.25"x0.25". I'm wondering if the relatively large pleurocoel suggests that it's a tiny dromie. For all I know, it's not even dinosaur.

    Can someone ID?

    We found this in the peace river, FL amongst various shark teeth, mastodon molar, and megalodon teeth. Does anyone have ideas? Thank you!
  7. iExploreAndMore


    Hi all. I found what I believe is a vertebra, but can't be 100% sure and what it may be from. I found in Holden Beach, NC today buried in a foot of water near low tide
  8. I found this the other day in Austin, TX. It looks like some kind of vertebrae or other bone, but I don't know what animal it's from. Judging by the age of the other fossils in that area, I would say it's late Cretaceous (it's clearly very fossilized), unless it was somehow moved there from somewhere else.

    Newbie but old rockhound

    Hello, I have been fascinated with rocks and have studied their forms my own my whole life but have no formal training so I am looking here for some guidance on some of the things I see and find. I will be learning from seeing what is posted and discussed here. Most of my current knowledge centers around ancient rock tools so this is a new area for me. I found wht I believe to be a mineralized vertebrae yesterday in Delaware on the beach. It is dense (ie heavier than it appears to be) nothing else similar to it on the beaches as far as rock type or shape. Curious what, if anything, might be de
  11. Dear fellow fossil huntersand fossil enthusiasts hello there. It has been a very long time since my last postI really had not much time to focus on this hobby of ours sincemy son was born. So he's now 3 years old and things are getting better, hahaha. So after this short personal note her is what I have to ask. I found this fossil pieceof bone. It is clearly a fragmet of something else, I guess from some kind of vertebra but I am not sure if it could be from some skull, maybe fish, maybe something else, I really don't know. I found this in a Pliocene marine deposit, I have found

    ID needed - Cretaceous Vertebra?

    I found this rock in a creek near me that I'm hoping is a vertebra fossil. It was found in the Woodbine of the Cretaceous of Texas. It was standing out from all the other rocks (most of the other rocks were red and we're not smooth). This possible fossil also has a smooth and circular shape to it, but also has slight angles it seems (if you could even call them angles). There's also a lot of small cracks in the center of the rock/fossil. Can anyone identify the species or family of animal this vertebra belonged to? Or is it just concretion or a rock? Any help is appreciated

    Fossil ID

    Hi i I was wondering if anyone knew what these 3 fossils are, Thanks!!. Vertebra? Bois Blanc Formation (Devonian) Unknown McCoy Brook Formation Nova Scotia (Triassic) perhaps spines of some sort?. Coral? Bois Blanc Formation (Devonian)
  14. This is another backyard find that I am having trouble identifying and any help would be much appreciated. It resembles a claw or tooth but I am probably wrong. I live in north Texas and my property is located along the Cretaceous Duck Creek Formation: Mortoniceras and Eopachydiscus (thanks to DPS ammonite for helping me identify the formation). Would love to hear from anyone who may know what it is. Thanks in advance.

    Rapp beach find

    Found a bone piece, maybe 2 1/2" at its longest, solid and heavy for its size. The 'bottom' is partly "stippled" (not part of the atlas vertebra, as I learned here recently). Different textures on different sides, the small protuberance is remarkable for the number of holes and channels (for blood vessels? nerve bundles?), at least one passing straight through. @Boesse you seem to be the acknowledged expert here. Do I have enough and are the photos (sorry!) clear enough to guess at an ID?

    Bone ID

    Found this in a ditch in Summerville, SC. It seems like a vertebra but I’m unsure and could use some help. I don’t know the exact formation that ditch was but it could’ve been chandler bridge. The top corner is broken off.

    Unknown Vertebra section Ohio

    Hello, I would Like to share a photo of what I think Is a vertebra section . I would like to Know what this could be from. It was found In Ohio in the early 60"s. Thanks for looking. I find it quite unique piece .
  18. Finally got out last Saturday to take advantage of the Peace River finally cooperating with us fossil hunters. Had a good day with lovely weather and a few new friends with whom we tried to kindle the passion for fossil hunting. If you missed it, you can catch-up here: http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/64534-peace-river-huntfinally-april-2016/ I didn't keep too many fossils from the trip (though among the keepers were two sizeable chunks of mammoth molar). Most of the things I found were easily identifiable but then I was left with two that were beyond my (current) knowledge. Any
