  1. Help ID please!!

    This past weekend we went to Morris Island in SC and found lots of sharks teeth… Can anyone help identify the three below? The broken one looks line a piece of a Megladon according to pictures online. All 3 are about the same size. My seven-year-old found them and is interested in what sharks they came from. Thanks for any help! ps: chapstick in picture for sizing
  2. New to Colorado

    Hey all, My names Braddock i just moved from Florida to Ft Collins, CO. I'm a new engineer out here and i do a decent amount of digging every year in my free time, i'm trying to explore my new state for fossils and minerals. I also have a side hustle where i weld custom stands for fossils/minerals/artifacts for people, still getting my workshop setup out here. Looking for dig buddies in the area to go hunting with, so i dont get hunted by the wildlife. I'll be searching the area west of my town soon for some rumored giant tourmaline. Also i have several connections and access to decent vertebrate sites north of here in Wyoming and Montana at some point i'll be heading out to, but i cant search those alone as they are way remote and a bit dangerous. Heres some pics of my finds in Montana
  3. Location: Missouri Time period: Pennsylvanian Formation: Muncie creek shale Hello! I was hunting in one of my favorite spots and saw a very weird structure coming out of a Muncie Creek Shale nodule and what I think it could possibly be is a piece of crustacean exoskeleton! If I'm lucky that is! I am not exactly sure why I know its different but it does not look like crushed shells from other brachiopods in the area and looks to be layered horizontally. My personal theories: Weirdly preserved Brachiopod, Crustacean Exoskeleton, Natural formation that I have not seen in the area before or something else entirely. I would love to know any information and would love to use this as a learning experience! Size: 3.4cm Images in their natural sizes (Not compressed): https://imgur.com/a/8c3o4Jd
  4. Mulbring Quarry, NSW

    Hi, I am currently a student at the University of Newcastle majoring in earth and environmental science teaching. I am really interested in making a trip out to the mulbring quarry with a few of my fellow earth science major friends. I understand that permission is required to enter the site. Could anyone provide me with information or contact details of the property owners? Cheers
  5. Teeth?

  6. Hey guys, i just posted a new video of two fossils hunts i recently had on the Yorkshire Coast. Feel free to watch if interested. I found an awesome nautilus and some really cool Ichthyosaur Bones.
  7. Found several of these while digging a hole for the swimming pool in our house. It was very surprising as I found hundred of them. Can anyone tell it is century old. I took a video of my discovery too.
  8. Egg??

    Found this while excavating in Sparta tn it was about 9 feet down and 12 feet in the side of a hill I was cutting out

  12. 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.
  13. In my last fossil hunting trip to a late ordovician site in the Oslo field I found these 2 fossils. One with a small spiral form, size 1 cm in diameter, seems to be a gastropod, and the bigger one what seems to be a nautiloid with an unusual form, size about 7-8 cm long. Anyone seen something like these before? First the small gastropod or maybe it is a nautiloid too? A small part fell of, so one can see if it has a sihuncle or not, I took these photos of it with a microscope, the first most clear in the cross section: And here is the bigger nautiloid, with the (for me) unusual form:

  17. New Jersey Cretaceous Mystery

    Found this worn down piece in a new jersey cretaceous creek, while I think its a random worn bone piece it does have some very odd parts to it that are interesting, hoping to get some feedback on this one. Will post more pictures soon
  18. Restoration

    I don't know if I am the only one that i hate restoration on the fossils. I love natural and original specimens. I prefer a tooth 80-90% complete from a tooth with restoration. Also, i prefer a B grade tooth with no repair, from a A grade repaired tooth. You?
  19. This is a completely new area of interest for me, but I find scanning for microfossils addictive. I got some vinegar and plan on processing some beach rocks (East Central Florida) that I picked up because I could see easily see some small fossils on the surface and assumed there would also be micro fossils inside. I crushed a few small samples, which did reveal more microfossils. Mostly what I could identify are broken bits of bones, but I'm sure there is much more that I'm missing. There is one object I found very interesting and beautiful, however I don't know what it is. I would like to know what you think the first object might be. That object is still attached to the matrix. The other object I found in the same sample. Both were revealed after breaking the sample. The first item is about 1/8th inch long but very narrow, and from some angles appears to be a hollow tube. The next object appears to be bone and is only about 2.5 mm wide and long. Thanks.
  20. fossil jobs

    Does anyone know where there is some good fossil prepping jobs are?
  21. Sweet Geodes with Paleo Cris

    I went out with Paleo Cris from YouTube (and the Fossil Forum! @Cris ) and we found some killer fossilized coral geodes in South Georgia. It was so much fun. The riverbed was basically just coral instead of rocks. I’d never seen anything like it. Video here: https://youtu.be/J9h4twIG_d4
  22. I was wondering if anyone here has insurance coverage on their fossils? Especially the more pricey ones? How does one go about getting that?
  23. Tooth?

    Hello! Help with iD. Is it tooth or something else. It has some striation. Scale - mm. Western Ukraine. Probably Miocene. Thanks!

  25. History Hounds - Wyoming discovery

    I found a brachiospongia that has a full chimney and a top and bottom. Tell me what you think. It is like the one found in Canada.
