    What animal and Tusk or Bone?

    My son Jacob and I found some interesting pieces still in grey clay matrix. 1. At first we were hopeful maybe Mammoth Milk Tusk, however He found a beautiful Meg blade amongst the material so probably not. But very heavy, and all are VERY sticky to wet skin. 2. Very heavy for its size and solid with no sign of a marrow channel 3. Very heavy for its size and solid with no sign of a marrow channel 4. Pretty heavy for its size and solid with no sign of a marrow channel, but end is slightly shiny and like chert, also has a tan tinge 5.

    Hollow Great White Tooth

    Hi all, I found this hollow Great White tooth this morning when out on a hunt in Charleston, SC. Is this an example of a tooth that was in the back of the jaw and was not fully developed? Or is there a way to even tell that? I have found several Great White’s with missing roots and this one feels different - it is much lighter and feels more fragile. Any information is appreciated and happy to post more pics if needed. Thanks!
  3. So......this stumps me on four levels (not a hard thing to do ) One- it is "sunken" into the shale (Stark Shale between Winterset and Bethany Falls limestone (Pennsylvania); Two-it is cracked ( at the 7th segment/ridge), Three- how do I get this out? and Four- what is it? It does not appear to be a crinoid is my best guess! I sealed it with a very dilute solution of butvar but not sure next steps. Thanks all!! Bone

    Is This a tooth Fossil?

    Is This a tooth Fossil?
  5. Hello, I found this piece on a beach in west Kerry Ireland. It is on what I believe to be a piece of limestone and I am wondering if it is an actual fossil or just a crystalline structure in the rock and if it’s a fossil which one would it be? Thank You

    Stigmaria ficoides

    Stigmaria ficoides is a type designation for roots of scale trees (Lycopods). The main roots have scars, usually ovate, where the rootlets once attached. In this specimen you can clearly see not only the main root but rootlets coming off of the main root at right angles on both sides. The white highlights on this plate are iron oxide left from the original plant material. The site where this was found is part of the same formation as the famous St Clair locality, which is known for its white fern fossils.

    Rock or fossil

    I found this probably rock near Estes park Colorado, I’m pretty sure it’s a rock but I thought i would come here and ask just in case, so fossil or not?
  8. Got back out with my kids a couple of times last week to the Calvert Cliffs for some crabbing and fossil hunting. The tides were really low so there was a lot more beach exposed than I've seen in awhile. We were primed for some nice finds and weren't disappointed! There was so much shell line and tidal bottom exposed, though, it was almost hard to pick where we wanted to search. Everywhere looked good! Anyway, we combed the prime areas as best we could and ended up with some really great teeth, verts, and a bunch of nice rib fragments for some reason. Teeth highlights were a really sweet gia

    Potentially Petrified Wood

    Hello all! I am a new member, and this is my first post. Could I please have some help figuring out if these rocks are petrified wood? Most of them were found in a small Pennsylvanian stream. It looks like they are quartz, crystal quartz, but I am no expert. There should be about two pictures of each rock. Thanks for your help, and I have more pictures of different rocks if needed.

    Confusing fossil

    What kind of fossil is this. I got it in one of those fossil grab bags. It has many lines running through the top and two “layers” sort of.
  11. I had purchased a lot of Madascar banded agates, and it looked too good to be true. So one was broken only to find a clear, banded pattern underneath about a millimeter thick colored outside. If one is like this, then I presume all is. I have spent alot of money purchasing these just to be fake? Please help me to be sure.

    Seashell from SE Minnesota

    Hi everyone, i am new to the forum, I am from the east coast of the US but spend my summers in Southeastern Minnesota. I found this (what I think is an oyster shell or bigger Brachiopod) while agate hunting near Winona MN. But I have no idea, that is why I am posting. The Interesting thing about this fossil is that it is whitish with what looks like little worms or possibly sea weed? The shell is 2 inches long (50.8 MM) and 1 inch and 3/4 wide (44.45 MM). Please let me know if you need any other info to help identify what it is.

  14. This was found in a pile of old stones near my home (countryside of western New York State not that far from the shores of Lake Ontario.) the rocks were delivered to put down in a stone driveway and I happened to stumble across this a year or so ago. I would love to know what it is/was.
  15. These teeth were found along the Potomac River in Western MD, in the Aquia formation. I am having a tough time finding information on teeth from this location but I believe these are possibly Pigmy White teeth (Palaeocarcharodon orientalis). All six show signs of serrations, but there are other teeth from the Paleocene that might look similar? I need help identify them and don't want to mislabel them in my collection. Also I found these two smaller teeth with serrations on one side but they seem unlikely to be Pigmy Whites. Any idea what they are?
  16. Every now and then on the forum someone posts a cream colored meg, or some other type of white sharks tooth. I just thought it was cool and moved on, but after finding two white sharks teeth myself (one below) I started to wonder how this could be. I extremely doubt it’s the original enamel, though I’ve doubted true things before. Would this be because of a certain mineral? Perhaps plant acids, such as in lightning strikes? Just from wear? Are there multiple factors?

    Great white?

    I just bought this for about ten bucks because I've been looking for a reseonably priced ( or better yet cheap) great white, as well as an angustidens (think I found one) and a chubutensis. Now I probably should have asked before I bought, but is this really a great white? Just want to make sure because I'm not great with the shark teeth IDs yet, especially with the white and the chronospecies with carcharocles. Sellers pictures, don't know what subforum this goes in. Bone valley btw.
  19. Greetings friends. Of the many, many fossils I've exposed here, this is the first I've seen any material like this. I hope the pics can capture it, it is actually near snow white. Its pearly white, has an apparent directional grain to it, is loosely layered and is very fragile. It can be scratched/scraped,dug up with a tooth pick. Is there a common name or process associated with this material ? This has filled the void left by a shell. Very cool. Puts you in mind of an actual deteriorated shell. Thanks.

    South African shark tooth ID

    I just got this interesting white shark tooth, it was found somewhere on the west coast of South Africa. It has beautiful wavy edges, and looks to represent an early example of either escheri or hubbelli/carcharias. Id love to hear some thoughts on what lineage this tooth would be from given its location. Also, what species would you assign it to? cheers!

    Weird bone?

    Saw this on eBay today, not mine, any idea what it is?

    Maybe some type of Brachiopod, or Coral

    Great white shark drawing

    I'm not sure where to post this, but figured this board was the most suitable. Here's a great white I drew a few of years ago. I might try to draw a few extinct species next.

    What could this be?

    If you have any clue what this could be, please let me know . Found in Michigan, in our creek buried in sand. I thought it was a bone. I see a hole, then something more inside the hole. I tried posting the best pictures. There is one picture that I got the rock wet. It also looks reddish? Thank you.
