  1. 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.
  2. 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
  3. 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?
  4. Bone from what?

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

    Any ides on what this could be and what it’s from. Thanks mike
  7. 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.
  8. 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...
  9. 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
  10. 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.
  11. 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?!)
  12. 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
  13. 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.
  14. A couple shark teeth from Charleston, SC

    I'm new here, hi! I've got a few teeth from around Charleston, SC that I'm unsure about. These I'm pretty sure are Angustidens, but I just wanted to make sure. These are not very good quality pictures, but it's the best I've got (father sent them to me). Some kind of whaler species? My guess for this is Great White, but it's very narrow so I wasn't sure. Thanks for the help!
  15. Large Oligocene Fossil

    This fossil was found by my uncle on the beaches of Onslow county in North Carolina. The fossil is roughly 18-19 inches long and 3-4 inches in width at its base. Any help is appreciated, ty.j
  16. Human bone?

    I found this at the beach. Do you think it's a human radius bone or animal bone? I grabbed it in the waves on the east coast of Fl today. It perfectly fits from my elbow to wrist.
  17. Jaw bone?

    I found this at a local beach today on the east coast of Florida. Can you tell me what it might be? I was thinking a jaw bone perhaps? Thank you.
  18. Coastal NC find - ID requested

    Hi there, so happy to find this forum! I found this on the beach yesterday and excited to see what you might tell me. This area seems to be rich in fossils of sea turtles, shark, etc.
  19. Shark Tooth Delaware Beach

    I found this tooth on Bethany beach in Delaware. Attached is my google drive folder with photos. (Site uploader not working). I am a novice collector and would appreciate any feedback. Thanks guys!
  20. Staten Island, NYC Beach Find

    Found this on a beach in Staten Island, NYC. The beach fronts on the Raritan Bay and Atlantic Ocean. I am a complete and utter noob when it comes to fossils. I'm pretty sure it IS a fossil at least, I showed pictures to my archaeologist friend (he specializes in Viking Age artifacts and sites) and he said it's definitely a fossil...so there's that . Anyone have any idea what it is (or was)? I thought maybe a shell? I Googled pictures of fossilized shells and didn't see any that look quite like it. I hope that the pictures are sufficient, I tried to capture how the fossilization goes up on the sides of the rock and it's not just a flat imprint. Please excuse the glittery nail polish. Thank you for your time!
  21. Is it a shark tooth?

    I apologize in advance for posting before in the wrong area (I think). I’m a newbie to this forum but am already so excited about it! My family and I are avid sharks tooth and beach fossil collectors in Emerald Isle, NC. I found this in the late summer (pre-Florence) on the beach in the backwash. It has a shape very similar to other teeth I’ve found but the color and texture is so different! I welcome your opinions; hopefully it will help to settle our family’s disagreement on this one! Thank you, in advance, for your time and I look forward to participating in this forum!
  22. Is it a shark tooth?

    I found this late this summer in Emerald Isle, NC (prior to Florence). My family lives there and we are all avid sharks tooth and beach fossil collectors. We are divided as to whether this is a sharks tooth and I would love to hear some opinions! Thank you! Hopefully the experts here can help settle this discussion once and for all!
  23. Fossil ID Help

    Texas fossil (?) of Unknown Origin. Found on beach south of Galveston Texas
  24. Haida Gwaii fossil clam

    I found this piece of clam in some pretty hard matrix along the beach below the tourist information building last year around this time while visiting Haida Gwaii. I've only just worked away most of the matrix. The inside was softer sand/clay which ground out quickly with my Dremel but had to use the diamond cutter to work off a lot of the matrix covering the outside. You can see in the photos that only a few of the 'fingers' survived fossilization. As this was on the beach I am not sure how old it could be, maybe Jurassic or as old as Triassic? Need help.
