  1. Help identifying fossil

  7. 10 Years

    On Sept. 23 2010 a basically novice fossil collector was looking online trying to I.D. some shark teeth from Lee Creek. While he had been "collecting" for more than a decade it was not a truly serious hobby. While surfing the web he stumbled upon this fledgling thing called the fossil forum. Something told this guy to go ahead and become a member. When asked for a screen name, even though his name was Don he decided on sixgill pete. That was because one of his grandsons had called him that on a hunt. Well the rest is history. 10 years later to the day, he is still a member. Still learning, but now way to serious about these things we call fossils. I have met a lot of great people because of our forum, and unfortunately have lost a few of the great ones too. So I say, thanks to everyone for having me and putting up with me for these 10 years.
  8. Would like your opinion on fossil collection.

    Hiya everyone negotiating buying this collection right now wanting you guys opinion on them all
  9. What is this?

    I am clueless as to what this is (more so than usual). It doesn’t look like the usual concretions. It doesn’t look like the usual shells. It doesn’t look like a fossil and I’ve never seen coral from Big Brook. It’s 1.75 x 1 inch and the bottom is concave
  10. Coral or bryozoan?

    I found this stone with several circles and some pattern. Could it be a coral or is it a bryozoan? Seems too small for bryozoan. Anybody can help identify it? Size of diameter about 3cm. Late Ordovician.
  11. Are these bones found in ignaberga

    Found these in ignaberga are they bones? I can post more photos if it needs ( changed photos)
  12. Bite marks of vertebra?

    Hey guys, Saw this Moroccan Otodus vertebra that appears to have some marks across it. Not sure if it’s bite marks or scratch damage. Can anyone tell? Regards
  13. Fossil Skeleton Found in Algerian Sahara

    Allegedly, this was found in the Algerian Sahara. I couldn't find an article verifying that claim, only assertions via popular social media platforms like Reddit and Twitter. Everything from Spinosaurid to whale has been suggested. Anyone know what it might be? And if anyone has an article with more info, I'd appreciate the read
  14. Fossil Locations

    I live in Aurora Colorado and was looking for places to go fossil hunting, I’ve already been to Florissant and while it was a great place I also want to look for other locations. I want it to be a 4 hour or less drive which I know really limits the are but I want it to be a day trip not a weekend trip. Dinosaur Colorado and Douglas pass are all far away and I don’t think you can fossil hunt anywhere near dinosaur ridge. I’d be willing to go out of state but only if it’s within 4 hours so like south east Wyoming, south west Nebraska and west Kansas.
  15. Fossil Horn of ancient Rhino

    Hi all, In the 80's my uncle took a horn from an extinct ancient rhino from Indonesia. It is definately a fossil, it is like stone. And quite heavy, 3.5 kg. (The ruler is in cm) I would like to know from what kind of rhino specie it is. Has anybody an idea? Thank you very much!
  16. Hi everyone this is matt again today in the creek I found 4 different fossils in the creek . They are called fenestella, favosites, productus and a bryozoan fossil.
  17. Pterosaur Big Brook or broken bone

    So I've been meaning to put up a couple threads on this forum for a while now. I am really psyched about figuring this one out because i'm hoping its a {terosaur tooth! Its hard to Id because of a tip fracture, its hard to tell if its just a bone or what. Also I want to get this "coral" quartz rock ID'd and it is tied to another thread i'm making. Link here;
  18. Fossils in own backyard!

    So, I was bored one day and decided to head into my woods behind my house. It is an area named possibly after the squaw Indians. I obviously have ventured into my backyard woods many times and have found unusual things. I have been metal detecting and other things. So on this day I was looking for rocks to bust open or just anything cool. All in this day I found everything in the pictures, a rock with really rough garnet, and a 1900s bottle dump. What a weird day, I didnt know this area had so much history. I assume a glacial process carved out the valley as it is shaped like a V with the tips of the top of the V being the backyards of peoples houses. So I found this rock and bust it open after seeing shell imprints. Boom, brachiopods galore. I just think its really cool how you never know where a fossil may be hiding. I have many other chunks of this fossil aswell. I have not found much else other then the other quartz rock I believe to be coral that I'm waiting to have ID'd currently. I did find another rock that was like a sandstone possibly that also had shells and brachs but it was smaller and not as nice. I have misplaced it at the moment so no pic. For reference on where these were found check this Squaw Brook Rd, North Haledon, New Jersey. I wouldnt come looking for fossils as this is the only one I have found after hours of searching.
  19. What is this thingy?

    Found it in a park by a creek inside a little cave. It's all black, feels rather light and has a strange texture.
  20. Dinosaur tooth found in rock pile

    I found this in a rock pile said to come from Lynne Creek, Utah. (Although I found out there is no such Creek, but did come from Utah.) Can someone please help me identify what creature this came from? In advance, thank you.
  21. Thinking of purchasing this trilobite any info on it would be great says it’s from Oklahoma What genus/species is it?
  22. These two teeth look similar to me, and I think are probably from the same type of animal, but I'm not sure. They were found close together on a central east coast Florida beach. Each is just over a quarter inch wide. The rule marks on the one picture are 1/8 inch. Thanks for all your help.
  23. Hi again, I’ve just posted my first find, and here is another I would like help with please. Found on the Isle of Wight Jurassic coast, grey coloured rock around 8cm in length, with what looks like some fish bone type markings. On the reverse side of the same rock is a round light grey circle about 1cm across with a thin white circle surrounding it. Please can anyone help with more information... thanks!
  24. Jurassic Coast ID please...

    Hi, first time fossil hunter here - so apologies in advance! Currently visiting the Isle of Wight Jurassic Coast and spent the day at the beach and have a couple of interesting finds - just not sure if what I found is actually anything more than just a pretty rock! So, this first one is about 11cm in length and had a sort of white slightly porous texture, with yellow brown markings. One marking has the texture of tiny bumps, whilst the other looks like smoother ridges. Can anyone please help?
