    Strange tooth ID

    Hello all! First post here. I have lurked in the past. I am a avid shark tooth hunter in Virginia. Today I picked up a small shark tooth and then about a foot away I found this. I don’t have a clue and have searched online to no avail. Originally I believe I was looking at it upside down. I was thinking canine. But I now believe what I thought were the teeth are actually the roots. Any info is greatly appreciated. This came from the rappahannock river in the tappahannock area.
  2. Hi Folks, Let me say up front, there won't be any photos in this report, unfortunately. To make a long story short, I am having camera and PC issues. Next trip out, I will have this fixed. I was reluctant to write a report without photos, but I wanted to share a couple of weird finds and events that happened out on the river. We went out twice last week. The first trip was to Gardner - one of my recent favorite spots to hunt. This trip out, I grabbed a bunch of that micro-matrix material, which was my main focus for going to Gardner. We had a nice paddle and spent an en

    Need help to identify what this is

    Found in Germany, sadly i don´t know if i found it where i live, in Hamm NRW, germany or while i was visting either the north or east sea (Nordsee/Ostsee). Had it since I was a small child and was always fascinated by it but couldnt find out, what it is. Because I have it in my possession for about 15 years, i cant really tell much more about location or anthing else, just that it looks like an egg to me, but that might be what I want it to be. its about 6x3x2,5cm big, one side is almost flat with some dark spots and a crack i think going through it. the other side looks like an egg, but

    Weird shark tooth

    I've got this little tooth from my dad he found in North Carolina last year. It just looks really really weird to me. It looks like a Megalodon tooth, but I'm not 100% sure. Is it anything worth or is it special?

    Weird piece of bone/ scute.

    Hello, I found this piece 2 weeks ago on the beach of Breskens in Zeeland. I don’t know what it is and there were not several options. I get stuck with this piece of bone. I hope that someone know what it is! The sizes are in cm.

    Egg-looking rock

    I am on vacation in Maine when I came across this weird rock that was completely different from all different rocks in the area. It had an outer layer that was very cracked up, but could easily be broken off from the the other layer, like a shell. It was fairly heavy, but it seemed so weirdly different!

    South Dakota

    This specimen was found embedded in Dakota Sandstone in western South Dakota is late Cretaceous . There are similar specimens in the area. I am at a lost to what it is. I have a few ideas, but I want to hear from others. Thank you. .

    Humanite or bone maybe?

    Ello' all! I found this funky thing and originally thought it might be a peice of pot or some humanite of some kind. But on getting it home and drying it out, it feels too dense for that. It's been pretty heavily sea polished, but the ridge on it looks unusual to me. And the entire peice has a slight curvature which seems odd for a natural formation. It comes from ice age clay, so the context is dubious. What are your expert thoughts? Thank you!

    Coral with odd-boy?

    Hello again! I found this lovely lump of coral today, but it seems to have a bonus weird-boy sticking out of it! Firstly, any idea what kind of coral this is? Rugosa? But then - any idea what the bonus weird thing is? Haha Thank you very much! I'm learning so much from y'all!

    What's this crazy thing!?

    Hello all! So I found this oddball in an ice age clay cliff-face yesterday. When I was cleaning it tonight I noticed some unusual radiating lines coming from one corner on each of this cube-thing's long edges. I Took some quick snaps while wet and I'll post some dry ones in a mo! What weirdy beardy thingy is this? Thank you, all knowing Fossil Forum!

    Don’t make me regret this...

    My best guess is turtle shell. The top layer of this specimen seems to be keratin... but beyond that I’m clueless. All layers are very crumbly. Specimen has no redeeming aesthetic value, beyond being mysterious and... weird. Found in a spoil pile near Aurora, NC.
  13. Hi all, Was looking through some fossils online and came across this one. It was in the "Exclusive fossils" section; so I got really surprised seeing this "pebble" in there. The seller claims it is the fossil skull of a Hybodus shark. Now to me this is very weird. As we all know, sharks have a cartilaginous body; so their skeleton doesn't fossilize easily. That's why I am doubtful about the skull of this shark being so well preserved, with the brain and all. Plus, to me this just looks like a funny-shaped pebble. The only thing that makes it more believable

    Mysterious sea tooth

    I have found this thing in a campanian marine phosphate deposit. It came along with fish and shark teeth. It looks like some kind of tooth, but I have no idea. The brown area is translucent and looks like enamel. Although the grey is thicker and sharp. Any experts on cretaceous fish would be welcome Ps. This is definately not just a rock, I am fairly familiar with this deposit and can judge a rock from a fossil. Could anybody I'd this please?

    Weird find

    I found this fossil on a beach close to the Sir Bani Yas ferry jetty in Ruwais, UAE. I have found many invertebrate fossils in this area. This is not an invertebrate! It looks like there are pieces of ribs in the middle. I think it might belong to a turtle. The beach could have been built by pumping sand into the ocean, I don't know if that helps.

    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

    Rock formation?

    I found this one in Kansas. I have no clue if it's just a odd rock formation or what. Thought I would share

    Fossil or rock?

    Please excuse my photography this was the hardest thing ive had to take pictures of wondering what this might be, thought it looked cool

    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?

    Oddballs of Cap-Blanc-Nez

    Hi all, Found these oddballs at Cap-Blanc-Nez, France. So Cretaceous in age. What do you think they are? I'm not even sure that they are anything, they might just be weird geologic formations. Looking forward to hearing your opinion. Thanks in advance, Max Oddball #1: (kinda flat; and the white spots are concave)

    What is this thing?

    Hello all! I am so happy to find this amazing forum. I love looking through all the amazing things people are finding! It's a great site. I have returned to the same place in this river I have found a bunch of interesting objects and animal teeth. Today, even though it was very cold, I did some river hunting when the sun was out and made it fairly decent. I came across this odd stone or object. I have been going to this same stretch of river ofr about 6 months now, have purchased a few geology books and searched online but haven't come across something like this
  22. My son found this in a creek LOADED with cretaceous fossils (shells, sea uchins, shark teeth). Is this a fossil or just a rock?

    What Could This Possibly Be?

    Found this on the Frio River near Uvalde, Tx. It has a strange shape with a lip around one side of it and it appears to have some kind of a core. Here are some pictures.
  24. In your opinion, what is the weirdest fossil vertebrate? I would like to see pictures! I will start out with the Helicoprion shark!
