  1. Hello, I found this, and it seems to me like a tooth, but I'm not certain. Found in Northamptonshire, UK. Thanks.
  2. Physogaleus or Galeocerdo ?

    Hello! Help with identification if possible. Scale in cm (mm). Western Ukraine. (Cretaceus-Neogene) Thanks!
  3. UK Ichthyosaur or Pliosaur Tooth

    Hello, I recently got a hold of this tooth from an old collection in the UK. I am unsure if this tooth wouldve come from a ichthyosaur or a pliosaur since the root is absent and I'm not expert in this material, so any feedback that help figure this tooth out is appreciated.
  4. Hello, I found this fossil in Northamptonshire, UK. I'm not certain what it is, my best guess would be a belemnite. Sorry for the bad quality. Thanks.
  5. Bones with "patterns"?

    Help with id please. Looks like that both fossils are bones, but with some patterns... Scale in mm. Western Ukraine. Cretaceous-Neogene.
  6. Here is an odd one. It's very hard and mineralized. I found it in an intermingled deposit of Pleistocene and Miocene material - I was pulling shark teeth and mammoth ivory fragments from the same hole. So, I don't know if this bone is some Miocene marine critter or a Pleistocene land beast. Can anyone tell what this is? Found in the Peace River, near Zolfo Springs (Bone Valley formation). Thanks in advance!
  7. Here's a weird one. I found this big bone that looks like a knuckle or knee cap. I am completely stumped on this one. Does anyone know what the heck this is? Thanks!
  8. This nifty little gem turned up in my sifter yesterday (Peace River, Bone Valley formation, Hawthorn group, Hardee county, Gardner Florida). I have no idea what it is. All of these little mammal teeth look the same to me. I tried to take the best photos of it that I could, but it's small and tough to get the crown in focus, but I think I managed it...maybe. Does anyone know what animal this comes from? Thanks in advance!
  9. Please help ID- Wisconsin

    Can you please help ID this? Found close to the border of WI/IL. It seems spongelike but the inside chambers leave me guessing! NOT a professional. Just like to find cool schtuff'.
  10. Unknown Acquisition

    I bought a small fossil collection that contained several Erismatopterus levatus and it also contained several unidentifiable and unlabeled items, in particular this piece. It reminds me almost of a placoderm skull plate, but I honestly don't have any idea. There's area of denticles on the side of the fossil.
  11. Lavernock Bone ID

    Hello, I found this at Lavernock today. I think it's bone but am not sure what it's from. Doesn't really look like a typical ichthyosaur bone. Any Id suggestions would be much appreciated. The colouration somewhat suggests it came out of the local triassic bone bed. Hand for size reference.
  12. My wife ordered a 2 x 1 x 1 Meter raised bed for herbs last week and it was just delivered today. The first thing I did before I start putting the thing together was to dig up a plot of that size at the edge of the garden where I'll be placing it for her. It's interesting what you can come up with when you're turning over a new area in an old garden. When we first moved in and I started rearranging things out there I dug up a nice rock crystal block as well as things like marbles, plastic toys and other household paraphernalia. This time along with a couple of marbles I dug up a nicely preserved gastropod. I think that it's recent, but who knows? Maybe it's from the Holocene? Now I'd like to ask if anyone could help me out with the id on this little snail. It's 5cm. long. I've checked out @MikeR 's Tamiami Album and the closest I could come up with was Stramonita, but it doesn't quite fit.
  13. I found this oddball in the same spot where I found a broken armadillo/sloth tooth that I posted in another thread. (Peace River, Bone Valley, Florida, likely Pleistocene). I can't decide if this is a very worn and beat-up (and large) turtle scute, or a "chunkasaurus" bone fragment, or possibly a beat-up osteoderm from a giant armadillo or something else glyptodont-adjacent. Does anyone else think this looks like an osteoderm or is it just my eyes fooling me?
  14. 3 Bones - cretaceous - ID

    Hi ! While stuck at home I am opening a few old boxes of fossils. I came through these small bones for which i would need some help on identification They are from campanian/maastrichtian , continental deposit, south of france.
  15. Here are two small oddball bones that I found. Both appear to be complete or mostly complete, but they have odd shapes that I am having difficulty making sense of. This is especially true for the last one, which is shaped like a human ear (I know it's not that, LOL, but that's what it reminds me of). Both were found in my sifter on the Peace River at Gardner (Pleistocene?, Bone Valley, Florida) Any help would be appreciated. #1 #2 -
  16. On my last trip to Gardner (Peace River, Bone Valley member, Hawthorn group, Hardee County, Florida), I found these small Pleistocene mammal/vertebrate teeth. Even when these are pristine, I have difficulty with them because they all look so similar. Some of these are pretty worn, so ID might be impossible. I tried to snap good photos of the crowns to show the distinctive "squiggles". Can anyone ID these? Any help would be greatly appreciated. I compared them against photos of previous teeth I have found, but I couldn't come up with anything. Three more, with one oddball on the end :
  17. Brachiopods from Germany ID

    it's my 4 days of quarantine and i thought it was time to put a label on few unknow brachiopods bags:) I received these in two bags as a gift with a very strange label inside ,it could be a mix from various sites,i try to make few "Familly"of species,there was also three othe fossils inside a bag.perhaps somebody could help?
  18. What is it?

    Hello! Help with ID please. Western Ukraine. Scale in mm.
  19. US Brachiopods ID

    I received from the states these brachiopods,but no ID and without the site ,perhaps it's a kind of Platystrophia?
  20. Help Identifying Strange Fossil

    I live just outside of Pittsburgh PA in Coraopolis and I found a strange fossil while digging the other day. I think it could be some kind of fossilized wood, but to me it looks like a large nut, like an almond almost. I'm not sure the age of it, but was wondering if anyone has seen anything similar.
  21. Hello, I've put teeth here for Id a couple of times and always received a satisfactory answer. I hope you can help me this time too. It is about this Ceratopsidae tooth from the Niobrara Formationn (Wyoming). Unfortunately no fossils of this group are known from this formation and I therefore wanted to ask you if you have any idea what species of dinosaurs the tooth could belong to. The tooth is 1,5cm in size. I hope if you can help me with this! Best regards from Germany!
  22. Aurora find

    Found this a while back in Aurora in the piles at the museum. It has cusps but no serrations was a little puzzled about what it might be from that location.
  23. Big White River Vertebra - What is it?

    My stepson Josh found this today while hunting in the White River Formation (Colorado) - it's a big vertebra that was sticking out of a hillside. This formation is Eocene-Oligocene. Can anyone help ID this?
  24. Green River Fish Amia Head???

    Hello everyone, I'm looking for a second opinion on this piece, a fish head from the green river fauna, while I believe it maybe Amia due to comparisons I'm not to confident, any help/guidance is and will be appreciated.
  25. The wife and I went to Gardner yesterday (report and photos will be forthcoming), and I found a bunch of stuff. This is an oddball that I am not sure about. Something about it says to me "pleistocene megafauna" - it has a wood-grainy texture on the less-damaged portion. It's broken, but I am hoping that the position of the hole and shape might be diagnostic. Does anyone know what critter this comes from?
