  1. Picked this up at Charmouth Beach (UK) where mainly marine fossils are found (ammonites, echinoderms etc) but not sure what this might be. It's hollow and the inside has the light brown bumpy impressions running all the way through. Any suggestions on ID are appreciated!
  2. Several years ago I found this item on beach in the Fort Myers, FL area. I don't remember what beach if that matters, possibly Lover's Key. I thought it was just an oyster shell but kept it because it looked like an ear. That was before I started collecting fossils. Now I see fossils everywhere!! Do you think this might be part of a tympanic bone from a small cetacean? Or just a weird shell? I've never examined a tympanic bone in person, just seen pics. Thoughts?
  3. Fish or fowl?

    Found this specimen at the edge of the water while shelling this past Sunday, January 12, 2020, at Navarre Beach in Santa Rosa County, Florida. My first guess is that it is the top portion of the beak of a species of bird, but found nothing when I Goggled it. It measures 35 mm in length and 22 mm at it’s widest point. I really appreciate your help and apologize in advance for my “beginner” status and lack of knowledge in the field. Sincerely, DB
  4. Help please - coral?

    Just found these pebbles on the beach on the Isle of Man and am wondering whether they are a form of coral. I know very little about fossils so please forgive my ignorance! The photos shows them alongside a pound coin. Thanks very much.
  5. Bones?

    Does anyone know what species these bones belong to? All were found on Sanibel Island but at different times.
  6. Mastodon?

    Recently found on the beach, upper Texas coast.
  7. Tooth? Or just a rock...

    Found this on the beach on the south Pacific side of Costa Rica. Scale shown in inches. Thanks for looking
  8. Dugong Ribs?

    Hello! I found these two pieces on a beach in Venice, Florida. I believe they may be dugong ribs? The smaller one is about two inches, the larger one is three or four. The larger one is heavy for its size, which I read earlier is a sign of it being a dugong bone, however the smaller one doesn’t seem to be But it seems to have the spongy texture of a fossil bone (I tongue tested it ) if anyone has any idea or can at least tell me if these are actually fossils or not, it would be appreciated! Thank you! The first two are of the smaller one, the second is of the bigger one
  9. I found this mushroom-shaped thing on a beach in New Zealand. I have no idea what it is; the stem is crazy long. It seems petrified. But apparently polypores can be super hard, so maybe that's what it is. But the stem seems much too long for a polypore. Or maybe it's a bolete? Still, the long-stem seems unlikely. I also found a short-stemmed (or broken-stemmed) similar item on the same beach. I posted pictures of it in a different fossil id post. Thank you for any pointers.
  10. I found this short-stemmed mushroom-looking thing on my favorite fossil beach in New Zealand. Any identification pointers would be much appreciated. It is very hard. The stem looks and feels agatized (or something like that) to me. I can't tell if the cap is really petrified or just really hard. A couple weeks later I found a similar mushroom-shaped thing on the same beach -- the caps are super similar, but the second one has a very long stem. I"m posting pictures of the long-stemmed one in a separate thread. Thanks for any thoughts.
  11. Manasota Key, FL mammal fossils?

    Thanks everyone for running such a great forum. Went on first fossil hunting trip in Manasota Key FL (just south of Venice beach) and got a bunch of sharks teeth including some nice slightly larger ones while diving, and was able to roughly identify them from your posts. Also have some not shark / ray teeth found washed up on the beach. I wrote down the best guess I could figure but am really unsure. Appreciate any thoughts! Thanks!
  12. Florida Beach Find

    My dad brought me this item that he found while walking on Indian Rocks Beach, right outside of Tampa. I find a lot of random bone chunks, sharks teeth, and fossil scutes on that beach. I'm not sure on this one and was even a little skeptical that it was a fossil at first. The "inside" of the fossil does seem porous like bone would be and there seems to be a ridge line with two compartments on either side (my thumb is inside one of the compartments in one of the pics below). The outside does have a strong line running down the top and continuing onto the bottom (similar to what I would expect to find on a turtle scute) though it is very worn. Any ideas?
  13. Bone found on beach

    Hello - I found this bone fragment washed up on the beach near Ocean City, New Jersey, USA. Any identification help would be great! Thanks!
  14. Help with identification

    Hi, I wondered if anyone could please help with the identification of this bone. It was found on St Anne's Beach in the UK. It has a claw like prominence midway down the shaft. The bone on approx 10.5cm long. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you.
  15. Hi everyone! Yesterday I found a shark tooth on a beach in Jacksonville, Florida that I would love help identifying. Does anyone have any ideas what it could be? Thank you so much in advance for your help.
  16. identification

    hi i found this on the beach on the Isle of Wight, UK Was wondering what it might be many thanks
  17. Not Sure What It Is

    Hi Folks, Found this on a beach of the Island of Ischia, Italy (August 2019). Not sure what it is and, though I'd write more about what I think, I have no background or expertise...which of course is why I am here. Glad to provide any additional information if it would help. Thanks for your insights!
  18. Random beach fossil

    I found this "fossil" on the beach when I was a kid. Any idea what this is?
  19. McFadden Beach Texas oddities

    This summer I poked around on McFadden beach for about an hour...didn't have much time as I was on my way to Louisianna, and there was a hurricane coming. Wish I could have gone after the hurricane, but ah well. Found a few little things, didn't really think much of them, but finally took some photos and lo and behold....one of the pieces has bryzoans and coral on it! So is this indeed a fossil of something or is it just a rock with bryzoans and coral? I picked it up because it looked bone like, but don't really think it is bone. The next piece is just intriguing, it looks like the rind of a cantaloupe! Again, not sure if it is anything biological or just weird geological. The Third piece I was wondering if it was coprolite of just weathered hash rock. Any thoughts and idea are appreciated! Thanks! First find: Second find: Third FInd:
  20. Skull Found on Atlantic Shoreline

    Can anyone identify this what type of marine life this skull is part of? I found it today along the East Coast of United States - Atlantic Ocean Spoon in photo for scale. The strange up raised markings on top are perplexing. Type of Eel perhaps? It's wet from me rinsing it in sink. Thank you!
  21. Bone ID

    Hello, can someone on this site identify the bone fragment shown in the pictures? Bone was found on the beach in Ocean County, New Jersey about one month ago. Thank you for any information that can be provided. Have 8 photos but can only post one.
