  1. I've got no clue

    Good day everybody, I've had a pretty hard time figuring out what it is I am looking it so I thought I'd ask around here. The specimens was found in Agua de Medeiros, Portugal and both pieces are about 6 cm wide. The 2 fossils are not from the same creature/plant because I found them apart from eachother but they do seem to be from the same species. Both of them seem pretty weathered so its hard to get a good identifaction on them but I'm curious to see if any of you know anything about what it can be.
  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. I found this on the beach on Bolivar Peninsula near Galveston as the tide was receding. Help?
  4. Hi, I am wondering if someone could suggest an immersion fluid that would have similar refractive properties of Amber in order to get photos of inclusions. I am looking for a fluid that will not damage or degrade the amber piece and can be cleaned off when done. Thanks for looking. R~
  5. Real or fake?

    Moroccan starfish fossil purchased near Erfoud. Is it real? Are the small ones a different type of starfish? I am also looking for ideas on how to hang it?
  6. Sebago Lake Maine

    We will be doing any family vacation trip for couple weeks to Sebago Lake in Maine. Are there any forum members that live near there if you give me any tips on locations and types of fossils that can be found Near Cumberland county? I am introducing my kids to the fun of fossil hunting and would like to make that part of our vacation. We're planing to also stop at Penn Dixie in New York on the way up to Maine. Thank you
  7. Unknown Brachiopod

  9. A claw from Hell Creek

    I bought this claw a little while ago, for close to nothing. Still waiting for the item to arrive. Not sure what it is from though. It was dug up in Hell Creek. The claw and bone measure about an inch in length in total. Anyone who would have a qualified guess?
  10. The piece measures to be .5 inches by .65 inches and I barely noticed the worn serrated edge, anyone have an idea what it is ?
  11. Hey guys, Just purchased this Crotalocephalina Trilobite and wanted to get your opinions on it. It's a really nice looking specimen. It's 72x34x18mm! Just a heads up the shine is due to having the lamp on Thanks
  12. Had been talking with a guy selling a spinosaurus jaw-piece, and got the pictures of it today. And the first thing that strikes me, is how perfect the teeth look compared to the rest of the jaw. To me, it sorta looks like they were planted there. With that said, there's a tooth in the jaw, that hasn't grown out, which is obviously much harder to make. However it does look like the part on where it sits, has been restored, and thereby the chance of it being placed there. And to me it also looks a bit like there are fillings in-between the two big teeth. I'm very much in doubt about this one, but right now it looks very suspicious to me, so I just wanted to post this here in case some of you guys can confirm that it's fake, composite, or real.
  13. Baryonyx Tooth?

    Hi all, Looking for a Baryonyx tooth, and found this. Wondering if this may be one. Sellers description: Ultra Rare GENUINE BARYONYX FOSSIL DINOSAUR TOOTH Upper Cretaceous Period 68 Million Years Old Found: Atherfield Isle of Wight UK Measures Approx: 28mm x 8mm x 6mm
  14. A french theropod tooth

    A guy is selling this tooth, accordingly a theropod from France, found in Cherves-Richemont quarry, Cherves-de-Cognac. It measures 1,5 cm in length. The seller says it is "allosaurid". I've been looking a bit around for some similiar teeth from the area, as well as species, and I find it a bit hard to find some good articles or pictures to cover this, but from what I can make out of it at this point, it may either be Nuthetes, or perhaps a french Neovenator? I had read recently, that they had found teeth in France, resembling the holotype of Neovenator, so that would make sense with the "allosaurid". There's a lot of disagreement about Nuthetes in general as well, from what I've heard. So what would you guys classify this tooth as? To me the shape does not look much like any dromaeosaurid.
  15. What is it?

    What is it? Is it just a rock or something fossilized like a bone? Found in the country in cuenca Ecuador today. Need to know
  16. I found this arrow head hunting near a cave in NW Arkansas. Sorry about the blur but its on the ruler just for size.
  17. This website has a google earth like layout, you type in your address (or where you found your fossil) and it shows you what it may have looked like, however many years you put it. It starts from the present day and goes back to 700 million years. Anyone who wants, can give it a try. I can't guarantee its accuracy. http://dinosaurpictures.org/ancient-earth/#0
  18. Gastropod?

    I found this "Gastropod" shell next to turritella shells and bivalve steinkerns. Do you think this is a gastropod? I know its too crummy of quality to be able to identify species. Let me know, thanks - John
  19. tiny shell ID?

    I found this in Washington state, Oligocene era. Its quite small but doesn't have the same horizontal striations of the other bivalves I found. It has vertical striations like a scallop (not that I suggest it is one)
  20. Marine Fossil ID?

    I found this is Western Washington state in an Oligocene Era sediment. I was thinking baculite but I have no idea. Someone please help me out. I split open a huge piece of mudstone and it popped out negative and positive (so the rock on the left is the imprint and the right is the positive). A piece broke off so I had to glue it back together
  21. I am not sure if this is authentic but I picked it up with a large lot of fossils. How do I find out?
  22. What kind of fish is this?

    What kind of fish is this?
  23. What is this? Marine fossil?

    Is this a crustation? Shell?
  24. What is this?

    I am not sure what this is. They all stack together perfectly. Please help
  25. Found a very interesting item online. But because of the price-class of it, and because I think the connecting part of the claw looks strange for a theropod handclaw, I thought I'd post it here. What is your opinions? Is this a "Spinosaurus Hand-Claw"? I think it looks real enough, but I just haven't seen any theropod hand-claw without a broad connective-end like this one.
