  1. Possible Cranium Element?

    Hey everyone, I was digging in the Lance Formation of Wy and I came upon this odd fossil. It doesn’t look like rock to me and a few others have agreed with me. I have been researching what it might possibly be, when I came across this Forum article, My fossil looks identical to part of the cranium element above and I was wondering what you guys think it might be. Could it be a partial Cranium Element? There is a few pieces of sand a matrix covering a tiny section that makes the fossil look whitish, but it’s all brownish in coloration. Any info is appreciated. Thanks!
  2. Need help identifying

  3. Unknown Maxilla from Oligocene

    Hey everyone, I was digging in the White River Formation when I found this amazing maxilla of some creature. Through some questioning and conversations with various paleontologists, many people have different opinions of what this is. The responses I’ve had are all different, being Oreodont, Dire Wolf, or a species from the family of Brontotheriidae. The w shaped teeth might suggest Brontotheriidae... What are your guy’s opinions? The maxilla is about 6 inches long.
  4. Fossil or foe

    Was wondering if this was a egg
  5. ???Cant figure this one out

    I found this today looking for driftwood along the Chesapeake Bay near Baltimore. It is very lightweight, it is definitely fossilized, and the chambers are thin walled and shallow depth-between 1/8 and 1/4 in wide and seem to be generally hexagonal. Initially I thought wasps nest but the size of the chambers isn't uniform, however I do think perhaps it could be a strange colonial Coral but it isn't calcified. I've never found anything like this in Maryland before and I'm having trouble finding others like it online. Any incite is appreciated, thank you.
  6. SO I went fossil hunting the other day just for plants in Stillwater. I manage to to find two fossils one I'm pretty sure is a plant and the other I have no idea. I thought it was a shed insect exoskeleton but I'm not sure. Can anyone help me with what these are?
  7. Just prepped this

    I've had this for several years but just got around to prepping it. I believe I've seen similar on the site in the past few years but don't remember what it is.
  8. Possible crinoid fossil?

    Found this a while back. Not sure, but I think it's a crinoid. Please correct me if I'm wrong someone! Found in missouri.
  9. Best Public Places to Dino Hunt?

    Hey everyone, I have a few questions... What are the best sites or formations to dig for dinosaur fossils? Which of them are free to the public (open to anyone to dig)? And how do you get a license or permit (if needed) to dig? It would be really awesome for some replies for this topic. Thanks!
  10. Nanotyrannus Tooth

    Hey everyone, I am thinking of buying this 1.38 inch Nanotyrannus tooth for $315, but am not sure if it is worth it? Can you please tell me if I should buy it or not. Thanks!
  11. I'm not sure if this should go in the native American section or not, so mods feel free to move it. I've seen mention that native Americans using fossil shark teeth as arrow heads and pendants and I've seen that they look actually like the tooth in question like where they put the string. That would be super cool if that's what this is. Thanks
  12. Dromeausaur or Abelisaurid?

    Hey everyone, There are a bunch of teeth here, a mix of Dromeausaur and Abelisaurid, and I was wondering if you guys could identify which is which. Not everyone has to be identified, but one or two would be nice. Thanks!
  13. I can’t remember where its from, it’s just part of our collection for forever.
  14. coprolite

    How can you tell if a coprolite comes from a reptile or a mammal or just a different mineral formation in general?
  15. Enigmatic Solnhofen reptile?

    So I was browsing through the Archaeopteryx lithographica records on FossilWorks; and in one of the three records (from Workerszell, Eichstätt), I notice the mention of an 'unclassified' reptile taxon "Rhacehosaurus gracilis". The only further information that was provided was the age range (150.8 to 145.5 Ma) and the geographical distribution. I looked elsewhere online (google scholar, ResearchGate...) for any other mention of the genus "Rhacehosaurus", and nothing else turns up. Do you people know about this enigmatic taxon? Is it some kind of invalid synonym or something? I'd love to know more about this..
  16. Silurian help

    Hi everybody. Recently a friend gave me silurian fossils, but not identified, and I'm not sure about the species. What do you think? Regards Juan
  17. Fish scale?

    I have not the slightest clue what this is. The seller never mentions anything about it. My first guess would be a fish scale but it's quite large. The whole thing is about an inch in diameter. From the green river formation.
  18. I found two chunks of limestone from Madison group possibly lodgpole or Mission Canyon member. Take from upper belt Creek in Montana. At first I thought this was a coral. Is this a Bryozoan?
  19. Feedback appreciated

    Completely new to all of this so please forgive my lack of knowledge. This was dug up in my front pasture by the gas company expanding the lines. This is ap 3’ x 12” My property is on sandstone with a variety formations. Thank you in advance on any information and opinions.
  20. Dead thing?

    Found this and it looks like there's some sort of appendage. Would appreciate any thoughts!
  21. Glob

    Found a glob of something in a debris pile from the rock canyon anticline west of Pueblo. Approximately 3-4 inches long/wide. Wondered if anyone had an idea what it might be and if it would be worth trying to recover it?
  22. What is this?

    I was walking a creek in Illinois across the river from St. Louis looking for arrowheads and found this. It appears to be super old with a build up around it. I have no clue what type of animal it belongs to. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
  23. Possible prints

    Some stuff I found today wondering if they might be possible footprints? I will load pictures one at a time due to file limit.
  24. Really weird skull?

    Found this skull? No eye sockets
  25. Fossil???

    Hi all, I'm new to the forum. I was wondering if I could get some help identifying the material in the picture. It was found on a shale / glacial till beach in southern Ontario. The material is very light in weight and looks to have shell fragment inbeded. Thanks for looking.
