  1. ID this ?dino?

    ·Big Brook, NJ, USA ·Panned fr brook bottom w marl+ ·Miocene form. overlaps Late Cretaceous? .Attach: images of 2 fossils .(found pre-2020) I assume these (3+1) fossils may be from the "same" species, two diff. animals? No outstanding horizontal/diagonal "veins" from the prominent central ridges. Rookie request to ID b4 summer trip to c Dr. Parris, NJ St. Museum, Trenton. Thx
  2. Help?

    I found two bones off the Oregon coast in the Nye / Astoria formation, both Miocene around 15 - 20 million years old roughly. The formation has yielded demostylians. cetaceans (dolphins, sperm whales, baleen whales etc.) and pinnipeds (seals, sealions etc.) I know looked at a few images of sea lion and seal flipper bones. NOPE Then I moved on to cetacean and it matches the thickness and shortness of the bone I have. (these bones are worn but I believe they still hold most of their original shape. This is not some weathered rib, it has a shape which is hourglass like not due to the ocean but the original form of the bone. a tumbled rib would never have an arch but would rather be declining in one direction, not on both sides, exactly like a pectoral flipper digit.) So I am fairly certain I am in the cetacean family. I know I won't get past here as its not likely to get a species from two digit bones. But I do believe that I can find whether it is in the order of cetacea.
  3. A profusion of sharks teeth

    Some things get my attention. In this case it is the word "profusion" that gets my attention. The question is are they larger than 1/4"
  4. Fossil id help

  5. Fossil found

    I found this fossil a couple of weeks ago in a creek south of Nashville. Any idea what it is?
  6. Bison/Bos tooth?

    Found this tooth while ago.Still not sure to which animal this belongs to.I know that it could be one od these two : Bison or Cow.I Found it last year in a Stream in the middle of the forest when i was looking for Oysters (Gryphea gingensis) in Paraćin,Serbia.People do not live near that forest but maybe they lived in some past.
  7. I had a great day fossil hunting yesterday! I found my first crocodile vert! Which are even rarer than ichthyosaur verts on the yorkshire coast! Then i found articulated 4 and a half icthyosaur verts! With 3 neurals, will polish up great! It had been a very slow month for finds then i have a fantastic day like this
  8. need an I'd. PETRIFIED whale bone?

    I have property off the central California coast in Monterey County. I have found sharks teeth, hundreds of various shells encased in shale on the property. But this is new to me. I was digging out a new trench for a water line and came across this. Very heavy. to me it definitely seems petrified.Many thanks to you all. -David
  9. Ammonite ID

    Finds have been really low recently because of all the good weather and people visiting beach more? or i just suck! I found this today near Whitby. Is it a Peronoceras?
  10. Archimedes

    Archimedes fossil I think found in Arkansas north of Russellville
  11. Fern type print

    This came from Arkansas about 30 miles north of Russellville
  12. I thought this was a boring rock.

    When I was younger I did a small dig up in New Jersey. I kept the bag of rocks and fossils I found. One day I was inspecting my finds and I was looking at this rock. I was convinced it was a simple, boring rock, but just before I threw it away I noticed the small facets that looked like an eyeball. I looked on the other side and, to my surprise, another eyeball. Then I looked at both eyes and it dawned on me. This isn't a plain rock, it's a trilobite head! Ever since then this guy's been one of my favorites because he's self found. Could anyone help me ID my bug? He's from the mustconetcong river in New Jersey. The whole head is about the size of a quarter.
  13. Limestone something

    I found this in an air pocket in a limestone slab. Had to chip and cut to attain. Anyone else come across similar finds? If you look at it humorusly it looks like a fish sticking its tongue out and sticking one fin in the air. Anyway thought it was worth posting.
  14. Fossil found in garden

    So i was just putting up my parents outdoor Christmas lights and this caught my eye. It was among a mixture of stones and pebbles that were bought in bulk, so i have no idea where they are from. I'm guessing it's coral or crinoids? We're from england if that helps but they could really have been from anywhere.
  15. Please Help Idenfity

    Any help in identifying would be appreciated! I found this today while sifting through rocks to line my garden.
  16. Where is a good place that is open to the public and allows digging to find fossils in Southwestern Maine or Southeastern New Hampshire
  17. Coral? or just stone?

    Hi, my brother sent me this stone that he found on a beach in sicily (taormina) can this be a fossil coral? or its just volcanic stone?
  18. Bourne Tx Find

    Hi, my sister in law found this on her property laying on the surface---some kind of Marine Fossil not sure. Looks like shark teeth or the bottom of a crustacean. Appreciate any help Thanks
  19. Did i find a dinosaur bone?

    I was raking leaves in the backyard, and in the water of a tiny stream in the wooded/swamp area i found what appears to be a large, petrified bone of some kind. Who can tell me what it is? Its hard and brittle like rock and ive found native american artifacts in the same area. Found in Channahon, Illinois.
  20. Deep cut old creek survey

    I found another site I want to survey. If it looks good I will get in the creek and hunt for teeth and other fossils. No guarantee that there will be teeth there, although this is a a creek that HAS produced good sized teeth. I have never been to this particular location within this creek but have been to others WAY up stream with so-so luck. This particular location is not a location that I know of anyone having hunted before. It is much further down the creek than I usually go. I found this location using Google maps. I am targeting Jan 30 or Jan 31. The temperature is predicted to be 71 degrees and 67 degrees. Contact me if interested.
  21. Sea urchin and clam in matrix

    From the album Cretaceous finds in Western Australia

    Several Inoceramus Giant Clam shell fragments and several Sea Urchin spines in matrix. Cretaceous Gingin Chalk.
  22. Shark tooth- Gladioserratus

    From the album Cretaceous finds in Western Australia

    Awesome tooth I found today in the Cretaceous Molecap Greensand (83-86mya). Very rare Gladioserratus sp. shark.
  23. Green River WY Prep

    I got a find and prep your own fish from the DPS. How do you find it and then prep it?
  24. A Quick Trip to Deer Lake Nan and I spent half a day at Deer Lake which is still beautifully exposed by the highway construction with lots of rock facings, rubble piles and exposed walls, also large rocks and boulders. There is a lot of iron content in the shale below the "Tully limestone" strata which is near the top and just below the limestone there are Dipleura trilobites although we have found mostly body parts and segments. I also noticed that a lot of the assemblages include shells and other creatures were already dead when they were fossilized. Many of the shells in large assemblages are different types of brachiopods/pelecypods with holes in the shells suggesting they died and accumulated like shells do today at ocean shorelines, then were fossilized. Some clusters where all or most of the species are the same with no deterioration or predation suggest that they died together at the same time. Students and fossil hounds have been scouring this area but there is a lot more to find and more being revealed as the construction continues. Nan and I have had pretty good luck this year with construction sites - most notably of course the Wattieza tree stumps we discovered. We do have some questions about some of our Deer Lake finds - comments welcome: 1. Trilobites We only found 2 trilobites this trip - this one is curled under at the bottom which is shown in these views: 2. Crinoids These are some interesting crinoids: 3. Pleurodictyum Coral Patterns - (Not Clam Mold Patterns) I thought these strange patterns were in the mold of a clam - there are tons of clam fossils at Deer Lake, some fairly large. These patterns were in a mold but apparently this is from a coral. 4. Spaghetti Shaped Fossils And finally - here are some "spaghetti strands" Nan was wondering about - not sure what these are: We found a LOT more fossils, including some assemblages that will make some nice displays. We were looking for larger pieces for display and found one large shell covered rock that is almost 2 feet long.
