  1. I think its a fossilised sea bed?

    I found this on a beach on the isle of wight. I think its fossilised sea bed fragments. It appears to have gold imbedded in much of it. Could someone confirm what it is? I expect it to be fools gold but it adds a good spin to the story when told. Thanks
  2. Bone? Or raw jet?

    Hello again! Can any of you lovely people help me with this one? Could be a chunk of raw jet, but hoping it's a pliestocene bone. This was collected on a beach in the North East of England. I know there are large deposits of pliestocene stuff just out to sea. But there are also large deposits of raw Jet too! Whitby is about 70 miles North and is famed for the stuff. Can you eagle eyed lovelies help me? Also - what should I look for in future? This is super interesting! Thank you
  3. Snorkeling Jax Beach

    Hey all. After being discouraged the past few days looking for creeks nearby or rivers low enough I've decided to plan a beach hunt this weekend in Jacksonville. The plan is to snorkel along the shoreline and dig/sift where it looks promising. Just to get out a little further than the average person would want to look. Within the next week or two I also plan on making my way down to Venice Beach as well and do the same thing. If I did my math right I'll have about 5 solid hours of low tide hunting, more if I dont mind going a bit deeper. (Which I don't)
  4. Another Topsail Beach find

    I found this strange thing on Topsail Island, NC last week. Do any of you experts know what it may be? Thanks
  5. Baby Crocodile?

    Hi there - new here. Found this at Rockaway beach in New York. I don't think it's a fossil but I think it's a bone. My best guess is that it's the middle section of a baby crocodile skull, but I have 0-5% confidence in that, especially considering the location. I was trying to find pictures online, but couldn't find anything with a cross-section, which would be most useful. 2 friends said it's a peach pit, and 1 friend said it's coral, but the symmetry (especially from the sides) makes me think otherwise. But if it is indeed something silly, please excuse my foolishness.
  6. Lake Michigan bone ID Help

    Wondering if anyone knows what this might be from. Maybe it's not a fossil. We found on the Lake Michigan beach near Two Rivers Wisconsin. Theres a small cut un it, where it appears to be the makeup of bone, not rock. Maybe a carpal bone from something?
  7. Help me identify shark tooth

    Can anyone help me identify what kind of tooth this is. My son and I found it shell hunting off a beach in riviera maya. Thank you:)
  8. Unsure what these are?

    Found these in varying places in eastern Lincolnshire, England. Two were found in regular yard gravel and one was found on the beach. (Smallest to largest: 1.7cm, 2.8cm, 3.3cm)
  9. Invertebrate Ocean Beach Fossil?

    Hi! I'm mostly here just because I'm interested in fossils haha, but I was wondering what this fossil might be? It's approx. 3-4 cm (pretty small!), and I also found it on the beach in Puerto Plata (Dominican Republic). This is more for curiosities sake, and just because I find them cool.
  10. Is this even a fossil?

    Hi, I found this down on the beach at Walton on the Naze (UK) the other day - not entirely sure what it is, or even whether it's actually a fossil or not - but thought I'd ask if anyone else has any other insight? It appears to be pyritised, but other than that, I don't really have any clues as to what it could be.
  11. Wood or Shell?

    I found these fragments on the beach in South Carolina (USA) and I can’t seem to find any information about them online. They're approximately 2-2.5 cm thick and feel a bit like metal. Image searches of petrified wood, turtle shell and coral haven’t produced anything similar. Any ideas?
  12. Beautiful Shark Teeth Found

    On a recent visit last week (July 4th) to Charleston, S.Carolina, I went fossil hunting on Folly Beach. I was able to find a large variety of shark teeth that I have been able to id. This large one and the grouping of teeth I am unsure of. After researching I believe that it is a great white shark. The largest one is 2". I would appreciate any thoughts.
  13. Hello everyone, I wanted to share my small collection of shark teeth with you. On the Belgian coast there are a few places where you can find fossil shark teeth on the beach. Most of the Belgian shoreline has been raised with sand which lacks fossils. Only a few places have been spared so there you can still find teeth. I'm especially proud of the Xyphodolamia Ensis, it's rare on our coast. The Odontaspis hopei was found by a friend of mine. - Alopias latidens - Brachycarcharias lerichei - Hyproprion acanthodon - Jaekelotodus robustus - Myliobatidae sp. (a ray) - Striatolamia macrota - Xyphodolamia ensis - Odontaspis hopei
  14. Need help

    Hello my name is brittaney. I am new to this forum. I have been looking for sharks teeth as long as I can remember with my mom. Just this past year my tooth collection has taken a real big turn out. All my teeth I have found have been found on venice beach florida. Great location for shark teeth. I have found a lot but only so many have stood out to me. That I just dont know what they are. I really appreciate the help. Thank you.
  15. Petrified bone?

    His all I found this what I assume is some sort of petrified bone. It is shiny and very hard, and seems mineralised. About 2.5cm long by about 2. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated. I only joined the forum after finding this.
  16. Please help!

    Found this on the beach in NC. Can someone please help me identify? I’m at a loss! Thanks!
  17. Bone or Tooth or something else?

    Not sure whether this is a very beat up tooth, bone or something else? Found on a barrier island along the intercostal, NC towards Carolina Beach. Any clues?
  18. Myrtle Beach Fossil

    Found this odd fossil washed up in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, Eastern shore of U.S.A. It is just over 2 cm. I've found many fossils along the shore here but this one is new to me. Can anyone tell me what it is?
  19. Stone found on beach in Wales

    Hi everyone! I found this yesterday on a pebbley/rocky shore near Solva in Pembrokeshire, West Wales, UK. Does anyone have any ideas what it could be? The stone is roughly 15cm x 15cm and was found on the mid shore. Thanks in advance! Hannah
  20. Hi there! Newbie here. I was shell hunting on San Jose Island this weekend and I said to myself “boy it would be neat to find a shark tooth” and then I immediately found one!! (Not pictured). But THEN I found this thing, which I think could be even more interesting! Needless to say, it was a thrilling afternoon. Claw or tooth? It’s about an inch from tip to tip. Thanks for checking it out!
  21. Hi everyone. I found this at high tide washed up on a beach in west mersea island, Essex recently. I know that this area and up towards Walton on the Naze is London clay and forms part of the red crag formation which dates back to the Pliocene period. The tide was pushing in from East to West at the time. I’m uncertain as to what animal (presuming herbivore) it is or if the tooth is complete. could anyone identify this for me please and if so is this a fossil from around Pliocene era or just part of a fresh carcass that’s ended up in the sea. There is no agricultural grazing within the area in which any livestock could have wandered off and ended up getting onto the beach and drowning. I can only upload two photos due to data size so will try to add the rest via linked threads (any other suggestions on how to upload all 6 pics at once would be appreciated) thank you for any help you can give.
  22. Beach fossil

    Hi, everyone! I am new here and know almost nothing about fossils. I found this rock on the coast of the Baltic Sea in Latvia and was wondering if someone could tell me anything about it. I have previously found stones with marks or even fossilized snails, but this one seems really interesting (if it is a fossil at all).
  23. Is this a shark tooth?

    I found this on the east coast of Florida while walking on the beach, Is this part of a shark tooth?
  24. Just trying to find out whether or not this is a shark tooth or part of a shell. I am on vacation at Ocean Isle Beach North Carolina. I found this earlier today around 12:30 p.m. I was near the tide line. It doesn’t look to be very pointy on top but the bottom looks different than a broken shell part. The coloring looks different, blackish grey with some white on it. Any help would be great. I’m a newbie here. Thanks for helping me out.
  25. Please help me figure this out...

    Hello all! First time posting here. I'm hoping you can help me out, please. About a week ago I found this bone on a beach in the North East of England while I was out hunting for small fossils. I'd like to get better at recognising bones, so I bagged it and brought it home as a little tester. But for the last 6 days i've been driving myself mad trying to figure out what this thing is! I started trying to narrow down the most common possibilities. I've been looking at Sheep and Cow bones for like 3 days. Then I tried referring to the Natural History Museum's guide to British Mammall bones. I even tried looking at different cuts of meat. I've tried to imagine this thing attached to a larger bone. Like, perhaps that's why I can't find a match? But I'm drawing a blank. It doesn't seem quite fossilised, but I'm anosmic... and well, I can't really face the idea of asking someone to "Sniff my bone". So the burn test is out the window for me at the moment. Haha. Please can someone help shed some light on this? Whatever it turns out to be, I'm super interested. Huge thanks!
