  1. Please help identify

    I found this on a beach in Northumberland can anyone please tell me if it’s bone it’s hollow I think with like a webbing inside
  2. Bison?

    One more beach find from Manasota Key. I think this may be a Bison tooth. Please confirm or correct. Thanks.
  3. Teeth ID

    I'm looking through a few things today while waiting out a massive spring snow storm here in Wisconsin. These are two teeth I found on Manasota key FL. Any help with their ID is much appreciated. Thanks in advance. Scale is in cm.
  4. Fossilized or no?

    I know that the first crab claw shown is fossilized the center has become stone and the edges where it was broken grey and black, but the second set of pictures I will post is of a claw that leaves me not so sure! It is hard as rock no doubt but the center is hollow and the edges more white which leads me to doubt. Opinions are welcome!
  5. Every year for Easter week, I go to the Atlantic coast near Biarritz. Walking on the beach and looking for fossils is very nice. We can find echinoids (Stegaster, Schyzaster,...), ammonites (Pachydiscus), crabs (Harpactoxanthopsis) and also vertebrate (Ray)
  6. I live in Kitty Hawk, NC, and have the glorious Atlantic Ocean down the street. On a recent beach walk, I found what appears to be a fossilized bone from a large marine creature. I have looked through photos online and have not been able to identify it... and I am hoping someone might have a moment to satisfy my curiosity. It is approximately 9” wide and 6” tall... see photos below. I would be happy to take other shots if needed. Thanks very much!
  7. Hi, all. Total rookie here. I found this on the beach of an island in Alaska's Inside Passage several years ago and have often wondered what it is. There seem to be many genuine experts here, so I'm grateful for any help! It's strongly curved on one side of its cross-section and much flatter on the other side. Thanks!
  8. Found this walking the beach near South Ponte Vedra. I feel like I am on the roll, considering the baby mammoth tooth I found couple of weeks ago. I think it is a tooth, but dont know the animal it belongs to.
  9. I found this walking the beach near South Ponte Vedra. It looks for me like a baby mammoth tooth, is it?
  10. Two Florida Beach Fossils

    I found both of these teeth this summer on Amelia Island, Florida. The tooth is strange, the way the root is positioned (maybe tiger shark?), and the other item looks like some kind of mammal tooth? This time period is not my area of expertise, I think they range from 8-30MYA. The shark tooth is about 1.5cm long and the other item is about an inch(2.54cm) across.
  11. Need help identifying

    Please help me identify my pretty cool find
  12. I found both pieces on the beach near South Ponte Vedra, FL. The larger piece I found today, and, because of the shape, I recalled having something like it found a few years ago. It looks like a bone, but what is it?
  13. fish bone?

    I apologize as I did not keep any information about where I found this. But I saved it as I was curious. I have showed it to some experienced natural history collectors and those interested in skulls without any success. So I am asking if anyone can help. I do not even know for sure that it is fish. But I remain curious. Thanks for any help anyone can offer.
  14. Found this walking the beach near South Ponte Vedra, FL. What is it?
  15. Bivalve with foot?

    Sorry for the shadow/light. The whole fossil is about an inch long. Is that the foot sticking out at top left? Or do you think it's just that the rest of the shell was broken off and never became part of the fossil? It's very soft mudstone (can scratch it with my fingernail), but I know soft parts don't tend to get preserved. This is another beach fossil, so I don't know anything about the age.
  16. What's this? Found on a Lake Michigan Beach

    I found this rock and others like it. It feels sandy, has a few things like plant stems, leaves and seeds embedded and fossilized in it.
  17. Quite a while ago, I found these two pieces at the beach near South Ponte Vedra, FL, where I find every fossil in my collection. One, most likely, is a bone, may be rib? I am not sure about the other piece. I would appreciate any help ID'ing it.
  18. Layers, layers. Need help to ID

    I found this walking the beach near South Ponte Vedra, FL. I have no clue what it is. Can you help?
  19. I found this on the beach and though it is a bone fragment. But then, when I turned it over, the texture confused me. Can someone help? Thank you!
  20. Help me ID!

    I found these at Holden Beach over Christmas break and would love some help identifying them! I know they are probably in the sea urchin family, but I would like to know more information about them if anyone has any! Thanks in advance.
  21. Unknown South Florida Fossil

    I’ve been searching the internet for an ID on this fossil and have come up empty handed. I came across this forum and thought I’d check in with you all. Any ideas? About the size of a pencil eraser. Found on a beach in South FL alongside many ray and shark teeth. Might be nothing at all, I’m not experienced enough to say. Help appreciated!
  22. Shark tooth

    OK. I'll try one more (for now, I have more) from Charlotte Co. FL. This time I'll go with a small shark tooth which is actually in good condition. I really like the colors on this one but I'm not sure of the species. I'm sure it's something common. Thanks.
  23. Broken piece of enamel?

    Here's another piece I collected a number of years ago from a Charlotte Co. FL beach. Much of it is broken, but what isn't looks like it could be part of a large tooth. The first three photos focus on the unbroken areas, two on the outside and one on what I think would have been on the inside. It's kind of difficult to grasp the shape without seeing it in person. The graph paper is 1/4 inch squares. This may be a bit of a challenge, but from what I've seen in the past, this group is up to the task. Thank you for any information.
  24. it was found at the base of the scarborough bluffs in ontario on the beach. cow seems the closest while searching google images for possible local animals but the curved roots seem a little different? thanks!
  25. Florida beach find

    I was going through some fossils I collected years back from the beach in Charlotte County and found a number of them which I could use some ID help on. This is one of them. While my interest in fossils is great, my knowledge of them is not - but I'm learning. Thanks in advance for your assistance.
