  1. Mystery fossil discs

    Hello again. I have several of these strange fossil discs. I cannot find tags for them in the boxes of minerals and fossils recently acquired. Possibly some sort of jellyfish? sea sponge? Any help with ID is of course always appreciated!
  2. Friend needs ID help

    A friend found this near Sonora, TX. No idea what it is, any help would be much appreciated. I do not know age or formation as of yet. Thanks
  3. Jaw bone

    Dug this up in about 2 feet of sand around a pond in cat tails. I thought raccoon but it doesn’t have front teeth. Can you help identify please, thank you. It was found in Florida.
  4. Jaw bone

    We found this jaw bone about 2 ft in depth around a pond that was dug out. I looked up raccoon which seemed to be obvious but it doesn’t have any front teeth. Can you help out by identifying? Thank you. I’m pretty sure it’s not very old. I'm just having a hard time identifying it. Thank you.
  5. Is this bone a fossil?

    Hi, I am new to the forum and was wondering if someone could help me identify this bone I found and if it is, in fact, a fossil. I found this in South Bend Indiana in an area where drainage water runs through to a pond. I usually hunt this area for "fossilized coral", but today I found this bone literally just lying on the ground. I have found bones in this area before, but this one is different. It is rock hard and heavy. I was thinking at first it might be waterlogged but the bone isn't brittle at all and looking at the top of the bone, it appears to be rock (as evidenced by the picture). The bone is 9 1/2 inches (24 cm), very smooth, and non-porous except for the first 2 inches (5cm) of the bone which feels rougher but doesn't appear to be porous. I hope I have given enough information and the picts are acceptable. If not, I will give more info and take more picts as needed. Thank you.
  6. Heart?

    I have a real small rock that resembles a heart. The valves seem to be in the right place, and it has a heart like shape. I found it in a creek in central Iowa. What do you think about it? It would have to be from something small.
  7. Petrified Human Part?

    I found what seems to be a fossilized human body part, not sure though. It seems to be something, but not quite sure what. Do you think it's just rock? It is rock, but do you think it's a fossilized human part? A museum I sent a picture to said it was just a rock, but I don't know if they would really want to tell me.
  8. Looks like a squid!

    Hi All, This fossil is about 1" long, 3/8" wide and 3/16" thick. Found in Dallas Texas after a rain just peeking through the soil. Any help identifying it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Brever

  10. Another strange fossil...

    Another weird one.
  11. Strange Fossil...

    Would love to hear what people think this is.
  12. Need to identify

    Can you guys identify this for me please? thank you! Very weird species. My observations: skull and dentition resembling modern felines, with eye sockets to the front and sharp teeth pointing to carnivores. If you look at the feet, knees and lung, the lungs are thin on top then enlarge at the bottom, the knees are similar to ours (bent to the front) instead of cats (bent to the back) and has large long feet. These three factors indicate the possibility of a biped specimen? Notice how each feet has one finger with an extra bone, like some dinosaurs, maybe housed a claw? However, the Waist bone and spine bending at the beginning of the waist bone show that the species is more inclined to walk on all fours. The problem is that this fossil is lacking arms, with no presence or indicator of even a shoulder socket (weird, or possible?). I am confused! Please help
  13. Bone identification

    Got pulled out of a few hundred feet of water near nova Scotia.. not sure there's enough to ID it. About 14 inches long and maybe 3.5 inches wide at widest point. img]http://pooncheese.com/images/2018/06/05/86fb790edcb634f95ec1795e1c204a51.jpg[/img] ,
  14. Hi folks, Thank you for accepting my registration. I found this in Cumbria (Lake District), UK. The rock is a type of slate but not as flakey. It breaks up quite easily and usually has fractures running through it which can be prised open with a bit of effort. I'm not sure what I'm really looking at to be honest as it maybe a fossil or it maybe an artifact from splitting. Thank you for looking and hope to hear your thoughts. Ant

  17. Someone’s gotta know....

    I found this piece last weekend on the side of the James river. I cannot tell if it is old or just from an animal that died recently. The end of the curved piece reminds me of an animals tooth or possibly even a long nail. It is round with black on the outside. Very smooth like enamel. I really have no idea. Who are my smart fossil ppl out there who can identify it...?!

  23. What might this be?

    I picked this up today and am wondering if it is a fossil or just an odd shaped rock?
  24. Hi all just for fun I was wondering has anyone on this site got a bucket list of rare specimens they love to have in their collector cabinets of curiosities. Also have you made any of those dreams come true by acquiring them. I think it would be great to know what wonderful, rare and fascinating objects inspire a collector's imagination. Some items off my bucket list too start with. 1. Stegosaurus Dorsal Plate, the most iconic part of this Jurassic dinosaur (need). 2.Excavated animal remains or bug from La Brea tar pits (need). 3. Dimetrodon fossil . ( got a beautiful claw). 4.Libyan desert glass (c.28,500,000 years old) (need) 5. Lunar rock (need... but if anyone has any spare, I will pay the postage LOL ) just the start of a list
