  1. Need identified please

    Found on Maryland eastern shore. Need help identifying please
  2. Proboscidea?

    Ill add more pictures. I found it on a beach in Washington State.
  3. Hi everyone! New member here. I am headed to Gasparilla Island, Florida soon. Also known as bocca grande. I was wondering if other members have been there and if you could share what you found and maybe what I could or should be hunting for. Thanks ahead for all your tips!
  4. Good day all! Spent a couple hours down at the beach (Milnerton,Cape Town) yesterday - unfortunately it was a bit of a quite day. Only came across one tooth and some interesting bones I wasn’t able to identify.
  5. Possible egg

    So this specimen I found a few months ago camping above Santa Barbara at the beach. It is 3" long x 1-7/8" wide x 1-1/2" thick. I was walking below cliffs that I could see other small shelled creature fossils. I decided to break apart some hardened sandstone. Inside I found this encapsulated in the sandstone. Any ideas? Let me preface by stating that my geological background isn't that deep. I do my own research. I have a lot of outdoor experience. I have been doing more research into gems and minerals. I spend a lot of time fishing beaches I'm No. LA county, all of Ventura county, and sometimes SB county. Thanks for any help. Tim.

  7. Tampa Bay ID Help

    Hello, I need some help identifying a fossil I found today. It was found at a ‘beach’ inside of Tampa Bay that has been artificially nourished with dredge material. I regularly find sharks teeth, sting ray fossils, agatized coral, etc at this location. At first I thought this was some sort of sea bean but it is definetly fossilized. It is about an inch long and 1/4 inch wide. Any ideas? Thank you!
  8. Myrtle Beach?

    Hi- Does anyone know how Myrtle Beach fossil hunting is these days? I'm planning to visit mid December. What should I expect? Where should I go? I hear they are re-nourishing the beaches-does this hurt my chance to find anything? Thanks
  9. Found on Oregon beach

    Very smooth and shiny. Think it could be a fossil? Very tiny. Can you help ID? Thank you! Tooth maybe?
  10. Hi, All. I found this today on the beach on Amelia Island in Florida. It looks like a tooth, though I am unsure. Any ideas? Thank you!
  11. Hey guys, Found a rock on the beach and it has a bulge, it feels like something is there inside, could it be a fossil?
  12. Found a tooth on the beach

    I found a tooth on the beach, but I am unable to identify the animal to which it belonged to. It has a width of about 1.5inches, so it is fairly large. Anyone who tries to identify it, your help will be much appreciated.
  13. Not sure what it is?

    Any ideas on whether this is bone or a piece of coral. Found it in the beach in the outer banks last week
  14. Fossil Bone or Not?

    Found this on the shores of Torrey Pines State Park one day. Thought it was a strangely shaped marine rock, but then realized it may be a bone fossil fragment. What do you think?
  15. Bone from what?

    What bone is this and from what ? Found on dredge spoil beach on Savannah River in Georgia
  16. Hi there, Hoping someone might tell me what species of shark this might be. Found on NC coast this weekend. Thanks so much!
  17. Obx bone

    Any ides on what this could be and what it’s from. Thanks mike
  18. Turimetta Beach Trips

    Hi all, I've recently visited Turimetta Beach a few times this past month and thought I'd post some pictures of what I've found. I would love to hear your thoughts on them. Attached are some ferns, Pleuromeia cones (Cylostrobus sydneyensis) and something I originally thought was similar to fish scales but I really have no clue. Thank you @Paleoworld-101 for the assist in figuring out the cones. Will attach more of what I've found, and probably add to this in future if I find more cool stuff.
  19. Beach Finds around Jacksonville

    Hey everyone, First post on here. Tried to take some clear photos of a couple finds from today that I'm not certain of. Ruler is in inches. Looks like I may have to make additional comments to include other photos...
  20. Hi guys, first fossil, first post :)

    Hi folks! My wife and I love to collect shark teeth at Englewood Beach in South West Florida. I came across what looks to me like a small piece of petrified wood, but it seems like it's unusual to find such a thing in that area on the beach. Can you help me determine what I've been carrying around in my pocket for a while? Thanks very much! -Adam vonNieda
  21. Lake Michigan

    We recently spent a couple hours looking for coral along Lake Michigan. While most of what is found is surf worn, there are still some interesting finds. As usual there were many more found than pictured, but I leave much behind only keeping the more interesting pieces. This is very easy fossil hunting as it is literally a walk on the beach. There are fossils to be found up on dry land but I prefer walking the surf line. On this trip we had our 5 month old Golden Retriever with us. As it turns out she loves rocks and would watch for my rejects and quickly pick them back up. Pictured are some of our finds.
  22. This was a shell I was certain was ancient... maybe older than me (I'm a "mid-century"- in housing, we're very popular these days!) Lots of worm activity, but WTF is this?! (Was that rated G or PG-13? OMG! TOTALLY?!)
  23. Bone piece from the Banjaard

    Hi everyone, I found this bone piece on the Banjaard beach in Zeeland, Netherlands. It is most likely Pleistocene in age, but could be a little older. Seeing the structure in the inside I think it's part of the skull of some kind of big mammal, but I'm not completely sure. Do you guys agree with cranium piece? Any clues as to which animal it might have belonged? Let me know if more pictures are needed. Thanks in advance, Max
  24. For those of you who collect at locations which are generally in a line, such as a beach. If you arrive at the beach and see someone got there earlier than you do you usually collect behind him or go to the unsearched section in front of him. A guy in a video said it’s bad ethics to cut in front of people when collecting unless they’re going very slow. What do you usually do in this kind of situation.
