  1. Hi, This Coccostius cuspidata is of interest. Not too expensive. Thoughts.? @Fossildude19
  2. This little fishy

    Greetings! I was totally captivated by this and snapped it up at our Gem Society Auction, a donation , and I have no information on it. Appears to be in a slab of shale? Imprint is about 3" long (pen next to it in photo 1 to show width of slab) Photo 3 is the backside of it. Any help appreciated - especially just to know if I was an implusive idiot to bid on this!
  3. Hi, my daughter found this in the ocean off of Sanibel Island, Florida US. We tried comparing it to shark teeth, but it doesn't seem to match any that I've seen. Hopefully someone here can solve our little mystery! Thank you for looking! I am going to attach the other photos in subsequent posts because I am getting an error that I am only allowed to upload 3.95MB, and each photo is only around 1mb so I am not sure what I am doing wrong.
  4. Cracked nodule repair

    I am after a bit of help please. I have a fish nodule with a crack that has separated. How do I go about repairing it? I can either attempt this myself. What glue/joining agent do I use? Is this straight forward? Bearing in mind I have never attempted this before. I would also be open to having someone knowledgeable do this for me. If it doesn't end up costing me a fortune. Does anyone in the UK know of someone reliable. I am at work. Will post photos later Thanks
  5. Although we are currently in the depths of February, spring is just around the corner! With spring comes spring break and a week of digging!! One of the locations I am planning a visit to is Jamesville quarry in Jamesville NY. I would love to unearth some nice placoderm pieces. If anybody has info about the site, especially who to contact for permission, I'd greatly appreciate it!
  6. Are these replica or genuine fossil? They look like the same.
  7. What kind of fish is this?

    What kind of fish is this?
  8. Made it out to the North Sulphur River yesterday and found a couple of interesting pieces of bone. One was a small jawbone that may be mosasaur but may be small enough to be from some type of fish, not sure. The other piece was one of the largest that I have found but is an odd shape and I am not sure if it may be from a mosasaur, most of the material from this area falls into that group? Any thoughts would be appreciated.
  9. Maybe Catfish , or a potato

    This is the 3/4 sides of the fossil I found in a field in Cheshire . I would love to be know the proper heading , subheading , but I have not got a clue , sorry . yes I real like fossils love looking for them. This I tried to upload to what I put on please id my fossil , part 2
  10. Plate of armor?

    Hey guys! I was in one of my favorite Pennsylvanian spots in East Kansas finding the usual brachs and bryos when all of a sudden this popped out at me. Any ideas as to what it might be? I’ve never seen something like this in my area before. Thanks.
  11. What’s this fish?

    A freebie to me. Common I’m sure, but what is it? From Parachute Creek I think. Yes, committed the cardinal sin, no scale. It’s around 8cm. @Fossildude19
  12. Hello, I've been offered this Rhacolepis, it seems it got broken and then repaired, plus it seems there's some paint shade around the specimen. Do you think it's a composite of two different concretions to obtain a fish with head and tail or a damaged genuine one? Thanks.
  13. Possible tooth

    Today I was working on my Otodus vertebrae cluster from Morocco and I found this. I found many bones and fish vertebrae in the cluster but nothing like this so far. Is it a tooth? I think it is but will like confirmation. If it is a tooth is it possible to identify the species? Length is about 4cm.
  14. Maybe Catfish , or a potato

    I really do not feel I can say what I think this is, as last time I jumped in, made a mess . Okay I found this fossil about five years back in Cheshire , UK . I was walking in a field , I had my metal detector, I could see a farmer on a tractor. Having walked towards him , he put his head out of his door , shouted yes , I just pointed to the ground and to the detector. I made a sweeping motion with my detector. The farmer shouted over his tractor engine yes, do what you want. After detecting for a time, I noticed the stones looked kinda strange and started putting some in my pockets . after a short time my coat was heavy, had to get to my car , I found a few cool stones by the road, including this one.
  15. Fish I.D.

    I have this fish that's been in the family for 20 or 30 years, but no one seems to remember where it came from or what species of fish! Anyone have any ideas as to the species or possible location? Thanks!
  16. Fish scales

    So i found a coprolite on a thin piece of shale at the Yorkshire Coast last year. Yesterday I noticed something on the other side. I assumed it was shells but on closer inspection i think it's a scattered fish? I'm guessing it's not worth sending it off to be prepped but it's quite interesting anyway. I wonder if the Coprolite has anything to do with the scales. Coprolite on the front Then turned over and fish remains on the back Anyone recognise the shape in the middle?
  17. Final clean up

    I decided to expose some of the bone fragments on my otodus vertebrae cluster and now I will like to finish it. Is there any way I can clean the exposed bones? Some solution? I have been working with a needle mostly but can't clean the bones this way without damaging them. I will like to make them pop out after I preserve the whole thing. Any ideas?
  18. What kind of fish is this?

    I am curious as to what fish this is. No idea where it is from. A nice specimen! Any idea?
  19. Brazil fossil

    My dad worked in Brazil in the oil field, in the early 70’, he brought this back to me. I’ve never had anyone look at it or give me any info on the fossil, that’s all I know about it. The entire rock is approx. 4 “ X 8 “.
  20. I found this piece while looking through some matrix from aurora N.C. It appears to be scales of some sort. Any Ideas?
  21. This fish is very cheap and after some researching that seems way too cheap, it looks very dyed to me. maybe a bit of restoration and that’s why it’s so cheap, or the seller didn’t know much about it as he included literally 0 information so he just saw some Knightia or something and sold it like themthanks
  22. Saurorhynchus jaw

    From the album Holzmaden

    A 6bcm long Saurorhynchus (?) jaw from the quarry Kromer in Holzmaden (Lower Jurassic, Posidonia Shale). Next to it is a beautiful pyritized bivalve. Another picture:
  23. Hello everybody Here are some fish all directly from Solnhofen. I bought these many years ago at the local fossil store in Solnhofen. No idea about species, I just can assure these fish are all from there Looking for any Dino teeth material (except Spino and Abelisauridae from Morocco) or rooted Mosasaur teeth (maybe even with a small jaw fragment?). I can trade more fish for one tooth If you want these fish, but feel your tooth is worth more, maybe we can still make a deal. Let us talk about it Be aware that I live in Germany, however shipping to the US or other parts of the world is no problem. Will check this once I know the destination, because of the weight. I can provide more close up pictures, no problem My pocket rule only has CM, sorry! Fish 1 Fish 2 Fish 3 Fish 4 Fish 5
  24. Green River Fish Painting

    I bought a small set of paints recently in a medium I had never used before, gouache. It's a lot like watercolor, but more opaque. I've always liked the look of watercolor but I've been more comfortable with acrylics. I thought I'd give the gouache paints a try, and I think I'm going to like them. Here's a Knightia I painted today, with an attached fossil Knightia. At least I think it's a Knightia. It's not preserved terribly well. I'm planning on painting some more knightia, probably a school of them, then a Diplomystus and maybe move on from there. It should be interesting.
  25. Strange rock from Davenport, Iowa

    My daughter typically finds sponge fossils and crinoid fossils at our home here in Iowa. However, she found this little guy and brought it in the house to keep. We aren’t sure what it is. I thought maybe it had a lot of iron in it so I used a strong magnet and it didn’t show any ferromagnetic properties. it looks like small bones all bunched together to us. However it is so much different than what we usually find that we thought we would ask for advice. Any thoughts? Could this be a fossil or just some mineral deposit? we look forward to your responses.
