  1. Cephalopod fossil?

    Relevant info first: This was found in Petoskey Michigan while looking for Petoskey stones. It was found in partially buried in sand. It is quite large and rather heavy. As pictured in picture 5, there is some sort of opening at the end? I can't get a very good picture of the inside, it's hard to get light where i need it and take a picture. the hole looks to maybe be about a 1/2 mm deep, and less than that wide. I took to reddit, albeit with less detailed photos and was told it was a straight shelled nautiloid cephalopod from the paleozoic, and that it was a brevicone, which I'm hoping someone can confirm or deny, or point me towards relevant info. I was trying to find more and found this on your forum, which is the first thing I've found online that actually looks something close to what I have: Anyways, Thanks for looking, and any help you can offer.
  2. Hi all and Seasons Greetings I was wondering if you may be able to give me a clue as to what I found about 5 years ago on a beach in North Yorkshire....not too far away from the beautiful town of Whitby. I was mooching around the rocks at the bottom of the cliff when I came across a 'cluster' of 5 egg shaped stones....I removed just one of the 'eggs' and it now sits proudly on my desk. The flat area that can be seen in the first and second photos is where the item was resting against another in the cluster. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks everyone Kind regards Bob........(Nobby)
  3. Another interesting beach find

    Down again from Minnesota searching for treasures. I found this a couple days after the last storm on a shell strewn sand bar. Looks like maybe a Dire Wolf tooth sans the root. Looking for confirmation or a id if something else. I have found walrus, ground sloth, and tapir material in the past and another oddity would be nice to add to the collection. Thanks in advance.
  4. Petrosal for ID

    I found this petrosal on a South Carolina beach near Charleston. I would love to know the animal it belonged to. Is it cetacean @Boesse by any chance? Thanks for looking. Scale is CM.
  5. Mammal mandible for ID

    I recently found this nice, if toothless mandible on a S.C. beach. I spent some time trying to compare it with other examples, but am left guessing. It does not compare well with the skunk jawbone that I do have. The alveoli do not line up, so I am wondering about raccoon or opossum ... any help would be appreciated. Thanks for looking.
  6. Beach Find from Portugal

    Hello from Portugal! A 100% layman here. Not even sure if this is in fact a fossil, but am very intrigued by its shape. Seems partially fossilized - the sides are stoney and symmetrically flanking what appears to be a fragment of some form of segmented exoskeleton (?) which seems quite hard and strong despite its flakey appearance. I found it in the Algarve, at Galé Beach / Praia de Galé in Albufeira, Portugal. Have you seen similar finds? So interested in hearing your thoughts! PS I tried to provide useful photos, definitely let me know if I can do better to enhance the inspection!
  7. Found at the beach in South sweden

    I have no guess as to what this could be. A fossil or another sneaky rock I tried google, but I don’t even know what to type in Thank you for your patience and help!
  8. Tooth?

    Hello! I found this pretty little thing at the beach today. It seems to be a tooth of some sort. It’s about 4 cm long and 2,5 cm wide. Would love any feedback I could get on what it might have belonged to. Unfortunately it’s very frail and broke as I brought it home, but I tried to piece it together for the photos. The first two photos are taken with microscope 200x enlargement. thank you for taking the time to look at it!
  9. Tooth with Bourlette ID

    Hi. Was looking through pictures of some teeth I have and the tooth on the right stuck out to me. The tooth is about a half an inch. I thought this was a bull shark but all the other bull shark teeth I have does not have the bourlette like this one has. That is why I am wondering if I miss ID this one. Any feedback would be much appreciated.
  10. crystal_touchup.jpg

    Since some were interested in the crystals within this rock I cleaned it up for a better view.

    Again, Since some were interested in the crystals within this rock I cleaned it up for a better view.
  12. Whale bone?

    Any input would be greatly appreciated, thank you.
  13. Can anyone identify this bone?

    This is one of 2 bones I found near the hide tide mark on a secluded South Island beach near Kaikoura, New Zealand. I'm thinking it may be Mosasaur?
  14. Probably not an old bone!

    Hi 1st time poster so please go easy on me. I’m almost certain this will be a modern bone but if anybody can tell from the photos I’d be interested to find out. I picked this up off a beach in North Wales, UK where there is a petrified forest and peat beds where clove hoof prints have been found. It was not submerged at all. The tape measure shows cm & inches. I’m sure it will just be a cow or sheep but you never know... Thanks in advance Steve
  15. I found this on the beach just last week. First ever molar find for me. Have found deer incisors on this beach in prior years-come every year for 4 weeks. Every year find different fossils and even from different time periods-Cretaceous, Miocene, Pliocene and Pleistocene./ I have taken picture of the occusal surface to help in identifying it. Learned that from looking at TFF as a needed piece of info. This was found in the same general area of beach as my previous posts on Great White teeth and possible mako shark tooth. Appreciate your expertise in id'ing this tooth. Thanks
  16. Mako Isurus oxyrinchus (desori)?

    Hi I would like to get an id on this beautiful tooth that I just found in NMB,SC. One side of the root is significantly longer that the other side. The blade curves "in" near the tip. In my limited experience, it looks like a short finned mako lower tooth. It is 2 1/16 in slant height. The center of the root protudes out. What distinquishing factors will lead to an identification for this tooth? Appreciate your thoughts. Thanks
  17. Great White C. carcharias with cusps?

    Found an exceptional ivory colored fossil shark tooth that while it looks to be a Carcharodon carcharias it appears to have cusps. Also found a 2nd black fossil probable Great White shark tooth with cusps. Both were just found on the beach in North Myrtle Beach, SC. Neither has a bourlette and the serrations appear to me (limited experience) to be coarse vs fine in a meg. The white tooth is 1 15/16 in slant height. So it does not look like a tooth in the megalodon lineage-C. augustidens or C. auriculatus or C chubutensis. The thinness of the blade is in line with a GW. In looking at the Great White lineage, I believe I saw a picture of C. hubbelli with small cusps. However this was a Pacific shark-California and Peru. Other fossils found on the beach in the general area were mouth plate from a burr fish, a number of Sea Robin skulls and a mammalian molar (will be posting that for id-horse,deer, tapir or camel), a number of great white teeth (I am pretty confidant) that do not have any cusps. I have hunted these beaches yearly for a number of years and have found fossils from the Cretaceous, Miocene, Pliocene and Pleistocene so cannot specify with certainty an age. It appears that the serrations are smaller near the tip of the blade. Would appreciate any help, suggestions about this tooth. This is probably the 2nd finest tooth (Lee Creek broad form Mako) I have ever found. A find of a lifetime!
  18. What have I found?

    Hello. I am a new member and I joined to get help identifying this piece It was found this morning near the water at Rockaway Beach in Queens County, NYC, NY, USA. It is solid and smooth on the outside and smooth with ridges on the inside. The outside is mostly black and the inside is mostly brownish.
  19. Small great white tooth?

    Hi. These three where found in St. Pete’s Florida on the beach. Is it possible the first one in top is a small great white? The serrations on both sides is causing me to think that. The middle tooth I think is hammerhead? based on the research I did. The bottom tooth I believe is sandbar based on how thin the root is and the length of the blade? Any feedback would be much appreciated. I’m still trying my best to ID these as accurately as possible. Thank you in advance!
  20. Shark teeth ID help

    These where found on the beach in St. Pete’s FL. Having trouble IDing them. Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you in advance.
  21. Please help identify

    Found at Cherry Grove beach, South Carolina. it is light weight only 7.5grams
  22. ID help

    My mother found this in southern Oregon on a rockhound beach trip and asked if I could get some ID help. Thank you for any information I can pass on to her.
  23. Vertebra?

    I apologize for the subpar pictures, they were taken in a hurry at my boyfriends house. We went beach combing along a river "beach" about a mile, as the bird flies from the ICW in South Carolina. His daughter found what appears be a vertebra? I really don't have the slightest inclination.
  24. Curious, little thing- fossil?

    I was looking through my beach finds and I have a small, curious piece. Can anyone ID it for me? Not sure if it's a fossil or an imprint of something.
