  1. Real Stumper

    Okay, I concede early on that this may be abiotic, but I just have this gut feeling that it's not an accidental pattern. I found this on the banks of the Potomac River in Virginia. The geology there is mostly early to mid-Miocene clays with a Pleistocene terrestrial bog iron layer on top of 40 to 80 ft cliffs overlooking the river. All fossil-bearing. This looks like clay, but I'm not positive that it is from the Miocene layers. There is a row of tiny lumps all about the same ship and almost in a contiguous line. One is just a little offset.
  2. Fun day with the wifey and some nice finds
  3. I collected with @ rwise in the Goodland Limestone, Lower Cretaceous of Cooke County Texas today. I found this semi-circular fossil that may be a burrow. Looking closer at the large end there was a dotted line, lower left. Closer... Closer... Closer... That's a mm scale and this is the best my camera will do close-in... Any ideas?
  4. Mosasaur Teeth?

    I bought these at a Rock Shop in or near Moab Utah. Pretty sure the dude said they were from around there. What do you guys think?
  5. Orthoceras?

    Was given to me as a gift. Not sure where from.
  6. Ammonite or Nautiloid?

    I was given this as a gift as a child. I gave the other half to a friend some time ago. Here Are the Pictures my dudes:
  7. Unknown Impression?

    Im really not sure what this could be. It was found yesterday in 2 million year old fransician muds at Centerville. Im thinking some sort of plant impression. Or maybe a fragmentary piece of sand dollar which are known from this locality aswell.
  8. Gastropods seem to be quite rare in the tracts of the Bearpaw formation I'm familiar with, so I'm incredibly curious about this lone specimen, the only one I've found. I found it in a hard layer of small conglomerated bivalves, pteria linguiformis, I believe, in sandstone dating roughly to the Campanian-Maastrichtian border. The specimen was collected from the western half of Diefenbaker Lake in southern Saskatchewan. Anyway, here are the photos. If more angles are needed please let me know: Pteria linguiformis (?), which constituted the conglomerate: Thanks for your time.
  9. Mini Miocene Marine Mammal

    I found this a few days ago along the Virginia side of the Potomac River along a miocene cliff. It's mostly if not all Choptank formation. Any ideas about a genus? Grid is in inches. Looks like maybe mature dolphin tailbone, but it's so small???
  10. Mystery Scapula

    I found this scapula this weekend along the Potomac River in Virginia. It's a vertebrate. That's all I know for sure. Most of the cliff next to the beach where I found it is miocene marine, but the very top is pleistocene terrestrial. The grid is in inches.
  11. I really have no idea what this is. Maybe I am missing something obvious. Maybe a nautiloid fragment? It was found in a fossil-rich hard miocene(I think) sand/mud stone. In the that piece of rock were some poorly preserved bivalve and gastropods. Lastly, what would cause those interesting markings on it? The NZ $1 coin is has a diameter of 23mm Thanks!
  12. 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
  13. No idea about what this is.

    Recently re discovered a bunch of these things that we got from the Canary Islands. They were all washed up on the beaches and they do not look stricktly geological to me and looks kind of like some kind of modern calcified organism or trace of one. I stumbled upon a book at some point, I believe it was called Darwin's Fossils that said these were some kind of remains of algae that have fossilized, but when I looked that up there was no evidence I could find supporting this claim, maybe someone else knows what these things could be? Any new insight is appreciated, Thank you.
  14. Requesting assistance identifying the dark slug-looking forms, these look like they were once soft-bodied so I'm pretty lost. I haven't the foggiest idea what these are and my fossil reference books don't have anything that looks like this in the photos or illustrations from what I can see. This was a creek find in southeast Louisiana. Your time and expertise are very much appreciated by this fossil newbie, thanks.
  15. Couple of finds

    I think I may have found my first Devonian bryozoan. (From Sylvania, Ohio.) And I also am not sure if these are shell or plant impressions. The rock that I think has the bryozoan has many nifty whatnots to explore, but that pattern immediately caught my eye. I'm not sure if the fan shape on the second rock is plant or shell. And there's a small bit to the left of it that appears to be shell that I haven't started to ID yet. (Pics in second post) Thanks for any help.
  16. This comes from Centerville Beach, Humboldt County California. I've found alot bivalves and snails in the cliffs where I found this. Another Formation 5 miles away has had reports of turtles, shark and marine mammal teeth and even agatized whale bones. I'm sorry about the quality of the pictures. I do not currently have a very nice camera. Its sticks to my tongue and has a rough porous surface. The divet on the right side of the bone in the first picture is a place where is has apparently broken.
  17. Clearing some brush under an old red oak and found these
  18. Small Jaw

    I found this little specimen that I assume is a jaw section a while back when sieving through some matrix. The material that it came from is marine from the toolebuc formation in central Queensland Australia this is cretaceous albian in age. Any input I would be grateful for. The specimen is 4mm on the long so quite small Regards Mike
  19. Near the Dutch town of Winterswijk is an Eldorado for fossil lovers. A student has now analyzed pieces from museums and (primarily) private collections for his master's thesis. He found an amazing amount of almost completely preserved skeletons, between 242 and 247 million years old. The good condition is presumably due to particularly favorable development conditions. LINK
  20. Hi there, I'm wondering if anyone can help me identify what this belongs too? Location is morocco which we all know can be risky, however it doesn't look like a typical fake to me. Not my expertise but would like to know an ID for it? Please see bottom image! Typical Fake Is it real? What does it belong too? Thanks in advance
  21. Keichousaurus

    Hello I am letting go my Keichousaurus fossil for trade, size it's at 9 inch and looking for dinosaur fossils or nice Megalodon tooth for it.
  22. I found this last year on the Yorkshire Coast. It was just sitting ontop of a large chunk of shale that had come down. Just prepped it today and it's come out pretty well. It's very fragile though. Will be from a ichthyosaur, plesiosaur or large fish!
  23. I found this unusual finger-like fossil on a Tampa Bay beach in Florida. It's about 3 inches long by 1 1/4 inch wide. It has an oval indention with swirls on the end, that looks like an external bivalve mold. The finger-like piece has corallite markings on it. Is this a mold of a shell or a fossilized coral finger? Thanks!
  24. Mysterious sea tooth

    I have found this thing in a campanian marine phosphate deposit. It came along with fish and shark teeth. It looks like some kind of tooth, but I have no idea. The brown area is translucent and looks like enamel. Although the grey is thicker and sharp. Any experts on cretaceous fish would be welcome Ps. This is definately not just a rock, I am fairly familiar with this deposit and can judge a rock from a fossil. Could anybody I'd this please?
  25. I feel clammy
