  1. Snails ID request

    Hello folks, I've got some items that have been in a box in the back of my closet for quite some time and they are not identified, most a very small. They have been collected over many years at flea markets, yard sales, etc. I know everyone hates posts requesting IDs without any location information, so I'll keep my fingers crossed it's not a busy day... Since my eyesight is not what it used to be, I'm hoping someone here can put a name on them. I have a total of five posts (small lots or two items) needing identification, this is the first.
  2. Unknown weird extra tiny things

    I like to use my microscopic camera on small stones that I find and on one such stone I found these I can't really tell their size as they were looked at through my microscopic camera but I will say they are extremely tiny....the stone itself is about an inch and a half....I found a few odd little things and am wondering just what they may be? I found the stone in the gravel drive possibly from a load from the Brazos river west of Houston Texas USA.
  3. Not identified lot

    Hello Sorry to say but i dont have experience in fossiles. Anyone able to identify these have all my thanks. I live in a mining town in Serbia. I was hiking and i stumbled upon a strange stone. It was the bottom one. I took a look around soon i found two more, the one above it and the one to the right. Those 3 pieces were the outer layer that fell of from the one on the left. The one on the top is different from all. Not far from there i found two more. The left one On this picture it reminds me of a big pepper cut in half since it has that coloring all the way around but inner. The structure is similar to the left one on the previous picture. The right one On this picture on the top there is a hole like change of materia. On the other two picture there can be seen some lines on it.
  4. Calvert Cliffs Find

    Hello, I’m new to this forum but have enjoyed fossil collecting for quite some time. Just today my son and I went to Calvert Cliffs. While I didn’t do well with teeth, we found this which I was unable to identify. I was hoping someone might be able to give me an idea of what this might be. Thanks in advance for your time!
  5. big Brook Find little Jaw?

    I was in Big Brook July 6 and found this little gem, not sure what I am looking at and would love some help. 00F61191-9B5D-4B31-9F9B-719578AC5009.heic
  6. Dinosaur Vertebrae?

    Hi all! I recently purchased this dinosaur bone from an estate sale in Maryland USA. I think it looks like a vertebrae, but I’m not sure if I’m right. Does anyone know what it is, or even what it came from? It weighs 1.475lbs and was labeled from the Jurassic period (although the person that labeled it is a gemologist, not a geologist so it was his best guess after researching). The tape measurer pictured is in inches, I could not find one with centimeters. Thanks for any help!!!
  7. Unknown Teeth Found on Beach

    I found these teeth years ago on Kure Beach, NC. They are pretty worn so I know an ID may be tough if not impossible. Please let me know if I need to provide any closer images and/or any additional information. I’ll number these 1-5 from left to right to make it easier to discuss the individual teeth.
  8. Unknown Fish IDs

    I am currently going through some of the fossils I bought when I was a kid. The fossils I am looking to potentially have ID’d are a few fish fossils that I bought from a couple museum gift shops. For this reason, I do not have much info on them which I realize could hurt my chances of getting them ID’d. I thought I would give it a shot and see if anyone recognized these fish. 1. Fish from Brazil during the Cretaceous 2. Fish of unknown location and age 3. Fish of unknown location and age
  9. Unrecognized fossil from Middle Devonian

    Hello all. Found this oddity in a small piece of shale, adjacent to the northern branch of Smoke Creek. I believe this is Windom Shale, Hamilton Group, Middle Devonian. It reminds me of something, but I can't place it. Any ideas are welcome. Pelecypod was my first impression, but ... ? EDIT: to add size. 6 mm in length.
  10. Is this real or man made

    Is this real or man made? Unsure what it is
  11. Is it a rib?

    Hello all. I am back with a couple fossil Id questions. I got a few things in a colection that was given to me from a ranch sale. Anyway this is the first question I have. Found supposedly in south Dakota 30+ years ago. Im thinkig a rib but that all and pretty much a guess. Any help would be much approciated.
  12. What are these?

    I wondered if someone could please help. Today we visited Filey with our toddler to go fossil hunting. We found numerous rocks which have fossils imbedded and we would like to find out what they are if they can be determined and if it’s worthwhile going to the extremities of purchasing tools to uncover them. Please bear in mind we aren’t pros in fossil hunting merely just enjoyed a day out, so please be gentle!
  13. Mystery Cretaceous Tooth New Jersey NJ

    Hello everyone, found this mysterious tooth in a cretaceous stream in New Jersey. Haven't come across any similar or anything I can really compare it to, plus its kinda worn. Which doesn't help but the leaf-like shape alone is very interesting, hopefully this one can be figured out.
  14. Fossil or natural formation?

    Aside from the inoceramid I found tonight...came upon this and haven't a clue...a natural formation or a fossil of ???
  15. Possible Triceratops Brow Horn???

    Hi, I bought this fossil at a flea market but am having trouble identifying what it could. I believe it to be the brow horn of a triceratops but i'm not too sure.
  16. Trilobite ID?

    Hi Help … can anyone identify this trilobite. As a geology teacher, I was given this specimen long ago by a student/ parent. Unfortunately I do not know where it was sourced , & therefore have little clue to it’s possible name, let alone the stage or series of strata it came from. It is set in a dark grey shale (bit like Hope Shale ??) with some very very fine quartz grains in the matrix. It looks a bit like a Cambrian Ogygopsis, but this species is not found locally in Shropshire/ mid Wales. Can you suggest an ID.
  17. What this please.

    Hi, my 9 year old is wondering if this is a star fish fossil that he found today, can anyone confirm please.
  18. Not a clue what this is...

    Hi. Here’s another item I’m hoping you can identify for me. It’s from a bag of matrix from the aguja formation in Texas. It measures 5 mm in length. It’s a glossy black. I really have no clue on this one. I kind of suspect it’s some kind of seed but ..... im sorry the pictures aren’t better but I don’t have anyway to take better ones. thank you.
  19. Large mammal tooth?

    Hi guys, I found this the other day in Florida. It’s part of one large tooth, no jaw attached (although it looks like it).
  20. Receiving this gorgeous but mysterious specimen is from Upper Pennsylvanian limestone dated around 290-300 million years ago from somewhere around Kansas City. Looks like a tooth to me and my best guess would be orodus? But I have little experience with Pennsylvanian shark teeth in general and especially from this area, also cannot find a comparison elsewhere online. Any help will be appreciated.
  21. Clawish Big shell or what?

    Found in a rock pool on Yaverland beach, Isle of Wight. I don’t know anything about the local geology but the encasing rock is dark grey, quite hard with a texture similar to concrete. I collected it because it looked clawish and a geologist who happened to come by said it looked dinosaury, though palaeontology isn’t his field! There’s no honeycomb in the cross-sections so I think it looks most like part of a big shellfish, but am clueless really. Any ideas?
  22. Two unknown fossil IDs

    Sorry dont know location or anything Is the big thing even a fossil???? Is the second possibly a partial hadrosaur tooth? Thanks again.
  23. I don't know the first thing about Fossils. What I have found would appear to be a fossil to me, but I honestly have no clue what it is. Would love to hear your opinions.
  24. Need help with identifying

    Hi. I found this while landscaping. Appears to be some sort of fossil plant or animal tissue? Any ideas?
