  1. Need Help ID-ing

    This is a wonderful forum and I am pleased to find it. I have a fossil that needs to be ID'd. I found it in Philo, CA in Mendocino County, USA There were very large rock cliffs full of rocks near the Navarro River. It looks like a tail bone of a tiny creature. And maybe a skull? It is egg shaped. What caught my eye was the consecutive dashed. Not sure it if it is a tail. Thank you for your efforts ladies and gentlemen. Regards, Ted
  2. What type of fossilization is if we see a flat white orthoceras on a black stone? Many sellers cut the stone in the shape of orthoceras shell, to believe that is the whole animal sell. Please help, because i can't understand what type of fossilization is this.
  3. Dinosaur Vertebrae?

    Hi all! I recently purchased this dinosaur bone from an estate sale in Maryland USA. I think it looks like a vertebrae, but I’m not sure if I’m right. Does anyone know what it is, or even what it came from? It weighs 1.475lbs and was labeled from the Jurassic period (although the person that labeled it is a gemologist, not a geologist so it was his best guess after researching). The tape measurer pictured is in inches, I could not find one with centimeters. Thanks for any help!!!
  4. Hello! I was wondering if you guys could help me ID this fossil. I found it in the Waldron Shale (Middle Silurian) collecting piles that the Falls of the Ohio State Park (SE Indiana) sets out for guests to rummage through (they get their shale piles from the Sellersburg Quarry, Sellersburg IN, Clark Co). I wasn't sure if it is part of a crinoid, burrows, or some sort of frond-type bryozoan or coral. I have August F. Foerste's Silurian Fauna of KY document but didn't see anything in his figures that caught my eye. The ruler in my photo shows the centimeter side. The true color of the shale is more blue-gray but I have a desk lamp with a warm white bulb on it which is giving the pic a false yellowish hue. Thanks in advance for your help and expertise.

  6. Keichousarus hui authentication

    Hi my wife recently found this fossil at goodwill it’s says what it is on the back just need help to determine if it’s real or not. It’s about 26 centimeters long.
  7. I might be wrong, but I believe that this rock is sandstone (if it isn’t please correct me) and that the spots in it are feldspar. I was wondering why there is such an odd placement of the feldspar(if it is feldspar) and it made me wonder if there could be fossils in it. I was planning on putting it in a rock tumbler to see if it would turn out good, but if there are fossils in it, wouldn’t it be better to work on the rock and uncover them instead of just polishing the whole rock. If you think that there could be fossils contained in it, what could it possibly be? If not, no worries I’ll probably just toss it in my rock tumbler and see what happens to it lol. (Btw it was found on cannon beach in Oregon about a year ago for context)
  8. Devonian ID help please?

    So I need help with these two specimens. The triangular fossil is in a grey brittle matrix, the other is in a harder matrix.
  9. Hello Everyone! I am new to this whole fossil identification ordeal. I was wondering if I could respectfully utilize this communities' expertise to decipher what species of shark teeth I have from the attached picture? I collected these shark teeth during multiple low tides over a stretch of 100 yards in a remote beach in Southern Spain. If I am not mistaken, from my novice research, it looks like I have some broken Megalodon and Carcharadon Hastalis teeth? Is there any other species that y'all can identify from the picture? Any insight is greatly appreciated, thank you all in advance! I have an off centered U.S. quarter placed in the picture as a size reference.
  10. Fossil bone or petrified wood?

    Hello, complete newbie here posting though I have been lurking for some time. I found the pictured today in the San Jacinto riverbed north of Houston. This river is known to have a great deal of petrified wood everywhere, and I've found a lot of it in many odd forms. Other than a baby mammoth tooth I was fortunate enough to find while camping years ago, I have not yet found any fossilized bone. I was wondering if this is bone(feels as weighty as a mineral would) or petrified wood. If bone, I assume it is too deteriorated to tell possible species, I would more be interesrted in knowing that it is, since I am completely knew to this. Since it was so deteriorated, I fractured one tip to see inside. The dark circular area seems to run inside of it and is also visible along one side in a kind of channel. Sorry the pictures aren't great, I will get better!:) Thanks in advance for any opinion you could give on it. regards, Brian

  16. Hi everyone, Have been fossil hunting at Achanarras quarry and I have found what I am sure is an complete Dipterus valenciennesi. The only problem is that it is covered in a thin layer of hard stone. I am just wondering if anyone has had any experience with preparing Caithness fish fossils and know what tools are best for the job?
  17. Found on the beach on the north end of Amelia Island, Florida.
  18. Fossilized bone?

    Hi! I found what looks like a fossil of a bone. It looks to me to actually be the ball that would go in the socket. If it is a bone, would there be any way of identifying what animal it came from? I live in Northwest Indiana. Thank you.

  22. Fossiliferous Rock

    Can anyone identify any of the fossils in this rock? We found it on the beach of Lake Michigan in Benton Harbor, Michigan, USA. Unfortunately, we didn't have any kind of ruler or other measuring device.
  23. Heres a fun thread for those to show off their widest and fattest looking megalodon teeth fossils in thier collections. I'll set the tone with the widest fat boy in my collection, I don't have digital calipers but it measure roughly 5.4 inches wide by 6.1 inches long. When I close my hand together it looks even more monstrous. Share yours and join the wide boyclub Got the idea while thinking about what the widest megalodon tooth ever found measures, if anyone does know do share in this thread!
