  1. I will give you a little back ground on where I found this fossil. There is a creek that runs through some of my families land in the middle of Walton County Florida. It is not located in a place that most people look for fossils. There are only about three locations on the creek that the beds are visible and most of them are at least five feet underwater and not easily accessible. I found this on the bottom of the creek at one of these locations when I was a kid. For the longest time I thought it was some old native American artifact. I recently found out it is some type of marine jaw bone. I looked up some of the geological formations where I live, and from what I can tell the beds are part of the Alum Bluff Group which is from the Miocene period.
  2. Help with ammonite identification

    Hi there, I found a fossil trace that appears to be from an ammonite on our west Texas ranch and what appears to be dinosaur tracks a few miles away as well. Can anyone identify more if this an ammonite trace and what kind from this photo? Thank you in advance.
  3. Hi, In 2013 I bought a keichosaurus fossil from online , and since then I haven't thought much of it, after me and my mum and dad moved to a new apartment the fossil got somewhat forgotten, but today I tried inspecting it. I read some of the treads here but even with this I can't decide if mine is a real or a fake one. From what I have gathered there aren't many outright fakes, but more so real ones that are enhanced. I will be glad to hear your opinion on the pictures (sorry for the poor quality but I had to use my phone). Any response will be very much appreciated. Best regards to everybody.
  4. Concretion or a good find?

    I was a big brook yesterday and brought a bunch of stuff home to dry out and see if they really are something or just concretions. Appreciate any feedback! Thanks #1
  5. Feather from the neogene

    Hi guys, Last week I was on a vacation in Balchik on the northern coast of the black sea and I visited a small fossil site there. It's a small shoreline littered with mudstone and limestone (I think). Previously there I have been finding bones of sea mammals but this time I found something even more interesting... From what I can tell it's a feather. I just wanted to ask you if you can confirm that it's a feather. I was also wandering if there is anyway that it is a modern birds feather somehow imprinted on the fallen rock. Happy New Year to everyone !!!
  6. Hey all! I was visiting the Jurassic Coast in Devon yesterday and found these 3 fossils (I think) under the rocky cliffs on Lulworth Cove in Devon, England. ..does anyone know what they might be please? I have labelled each one 1, 2 and 3 and number 3 has 3 pictures attached; 3a,3b,3c. Unfortunately this is larger and a more difficult shape of rock to photograph. any help or advice on the ID of any of these would be great. PS. I am an amateur and have no idea if they even are fossils, but it would be exciting if they were. Thanks again for any help!
  7. Another Trip to Big Brook

    Hi. Went to Big Brook again yesterday. It’s turning out to be a weekly addiction for me haha. It was in the 30s and sunny to start and then ended cloudy with snow. Fun times. Not sure what everyone else does to keep hands warm while sifting in freezing water. As a runner, I learned a trick to put latex gloves on as you first layer under whatever gloves you normally use. It works amazing. Keeps yours hands super warm. Hope this helps anyone in the forum. Goblin tooth without the root. (Thanks jersey devil) !
  8. Found these 2 in the gault clay of Folkestone UK and after a while of looking online I'm stumped. they look like ammonite fragments but the preservation isn't great.
  9. I found this fossil in 2010 along the Huron river, near Monroeville, Ohio. The fossil is in shale, which I believe is Ohio Shale formation Devonian age. No idea what it is.
  10. Trip to Big Brook

    Hi. I thought it would be a good day yesterday to go to Big Brook yesterday. It rained for almost two straight days and the temperature jumped up to 55-60 degrees. I thoughts with all the rain and warmer temperature I would be able to get some good finds yesterday. Yesterday the temperature dropped into the 30's and it snowed. The water was the highest I have ever seen it because of the rain. I could not even get to my favorite spot because it was under water. I found a couple decent spots to look around. Here are my finding. A couple things I have no idea what they are and something I think I know what they are. If anyone can help with the ID's that would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
  11. Is it a fossil??

    Hi guys, Today I was going trough some old boxes of not very well preserved fossils and I stumbled upon this rock which i found before a few years in a limestone deposit on a fossil beach here in Bulgaria. (Echinoids and ammonites are common for this site). When I found it I thought it really resembled a fish spine, so I took it just in case it really was a fish spine (although I doubted it). So can anybody tell me if this is really a fossil of some sort or is it just some natural rock markings. Best regards to everybody!!
  12. Fossil flower?

    Possibly a flower fossil? Found in Toowoomba, Qld Australia. Any ideas would be appreciated, thanks in advance
  13. Is this an Angustidens shark tooth?

    I compared my shark tooth to different shark teeth images on google and think that it came from an Angustidens shark? Am I correct? Thanks guys!
  14. Hi all, I have another fossil here for your inspection please. It seems to be a Spinosaurid partial neural spine but I cannot be sure. @Troodon @LordTrilobite
  15. Strange colour crab claw

    A couple of hours in on our fossil hunt at Glen Afric, I spotted another crab fossil! This had now been our 3rd crab of the day. We have not found a similar crab to this one. Any ideas or thoughts on why the colour is so strange?
  16. Novice needing advice!

    Hey Everyone! I've found these in Toowoomba, Qld Australia. I was wondering if anyone knew what they were and how I should go about cleaning them up. These are my first fossils Ive found, im so excited and don't want to damage them!
  17. Cave find

    I located this item in a cave where other items where located too. It’s about 1 1/4” long by about 3/4” wide. I am new to this forum and would like any guidance you may offer. It has been enjoyable looking through the posts. Thank you.
  18. What Fossil is this?

    This is a rock I picked up on a rock hunt in Mississippi I think on the Big Black River Hunt while with MS Gem & Mineral Club. Thank you to Mark that helped me post better!
  19. Hello, I found this while at the oregon coast. Is it a fossilized egg of some kind? Its about 3 inches long. Thanks
  20. Weird bone

    I found odd shaped bone or shell fragments, i don’t know what it is I just know it’s not a rock it was found at Kelly park in apopka fl
  21. While Hiking a creek in Upstate New York (Binghamton) I came across this unique find, looks different than anything I have came across before. Looks as if it's composed of several types of minerals along with different types of fossils. Seems to be very dense, with no loose or flaking material. I'm very interested in the main body where it looks as if the material is twisting and curling and gives it a fluid type of look. I am asking the community to please help me identify what this may be composed of and from what era. Thank you. - Dan
  22. Croc tooth? Aquia formation

    Hello all, first post on the forums despite joining awhile ago. Last winter I was fortunate enough to have some serious luck at Purse State Park in 2 consecutive trips while I was on break. Thanks to @Williamb55I was able to finally muster some motivation to seek some help to ID what I believe is a Crocodile tooth and Otodus from the Paleocene Epoch. Of course this could be inaccurate but I would love some insight into my find, comments and replies are appreciated. Best, DF
  23. What kind of tooth (big brook)

    Hi. Found this at big brook yesterday. Thought it was just a piece of a shark tooth at first. Now that it dried out it’s not smooth or flat like a shark tooth. It’s more circular and rough. Any feedback would be much appreciated. Thanks
  24. Small great white tooth?

    Hi. These three where found in St. Pete’s Florida on the beach. Is it possible the first one in top is a small great white? The serrations on both sides is causing me to think that. The middle tooth I think is hammerhead? based on the research I did. The bottom tooth I believe is sandbar based on how thin the root is and the length of the blade? Any feedback would be much appreciated. I’m still trying my best to ID these as accurately as possible. Thank you in advance!
  25. Mazonia (Blob) fossils, please help ID

    I actually went to Mazon creek for once, however I’m quite new there so I need some help identifying what I found
