  1. Sorry for the meh camera quality, but I found this I guess what I can safety call "rock" in the Dominican Republic a couple of months ago and I just wanna figure out if it actually is a fossil of some type. Someone I knew said it could be a coprolite but I don't know for sure. Just so you guys know, I actually was on this forum before. It's just I forgot the name and had to make a new account because it had been months lol
  2. Teeth identification

    Back again from a trip on the beautiful beaches of the netherlands. We found a lot of teeth and some other nice surprises as well. I have a few items that i could not check on internet. Maybe you can enlight me! top teeth is very serrated..not sure is a shark though... the tiny one is a tiger shark i think and the black teeth pointing up is round...maybe a tortoise?

    This was also found on the beach in south Texas. Thank you!
  4. Tooth ID (Alligator?)

    Hello! I was sifting for shark teeth this past weekend at Sarasota beach in Florida and came across this thing. It's 3/4 of an inch long and 1/4 inch wide. I was researching fossils found in Florida and it looks a bit like an alligator tooth, but I'm not sure. I'd appreciate any suggestions. Thank you!
  5. Identification help please

    Found on the beach in south Texas.
  6. Fossils on FL beach

    Two days ago, I found this fossil on the beach off of southwest Florida. Can anyone help me to ID it? Initially I thought it was a shark tooth. There are a lot of small shark teeth fossils (less than an inch heigh) on this beach. After further inspection, I am wondering if it is a fossil of a broken bone. It's about an inch. Newbie here. Any guesses? Thanks very much! I appreciate your help.
  7. Clacton find

    Hi, this is a find from high up the beach in the dry sand found 50m east from Clacton pier, I dont think its bone or ivory, it was in two pieces when found so I stuck them together, Bison horn?, any help with a possible ID would be great, many thanks.
  8. Petrified wood?

    Hi all! Just got back from a weekend hiking along the Olympic Peninsula oceanside beaches with my family. I usually pick up a few beach stones on trips like this, and his particular stone caught my eye because the lighter colored streaks sparkle a bit in an opal-y kind of way. When you hold it to the light you can see a pretty clear wood grain/ring pattern, with the opalized bits filling where you might imagine cracks in the wood to have been. I know this is hard to be sure from photos but just curious if others agree that this appears to be petrified wood.
  9. Found vertebra(?)

    Hi guys, I joined so I could identify what I found! I was walking on the beach in southern Maine when I stumbled upon this circular disk. I think it’s a vertebra, but I was wondering if someone could tell me the difference between shark and fish vertebra. Any info is helpful!! It’s so interesting. thumb nail for size!
  10. Help with ID — beach find

    Hi all. I found this washed up on the beach at high tide at Ocean Isle Beach in southern North Carolina this morning. Any help identifying what I found is most appreciated. I thought it might be petrified wood but the shape made me wonder if I’ve found a fossil of some type instead. It is porous. Roughly 1” x 3”. Thanks for any guidance you can provide!
  11. Cleaning or restoring advice??

    Hello hello. I'm new to this whole fossil thing! although this forum community has informed me with so much more then I could ask I still have some silly questions. Should i clean shark teeths? And how can I decide what condition my shark teeth are in? Also here are some interesting finds I found on Englewood beach, Florida. Super early on 2/20.... oh and could someone give me a run around on different colors? Like blue,orange,black, sometimes yellow. Does that go about age or shark?
  12. Teeth found on a beach

    Hello, A few years ago me and my daughter found this tooth on the beach in the Netherlands. Since then we started to go regularly to several beaches to find washed off treasures. I though one of them was a horse tooth from the pleistocene...now i am not sure..it's too compact and short..i would love to have your expertise on it
  13. Tooth (beach)

    Hello Fossil nerds. Hope all is well. I have been following all of the cool Instagram fossil accounts and it reminded me of something my son and I found this summer. USA California Santa Barbara County Jalama Beach 34°29'44.0"N 120°29'46.8"W measurements are in cm. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
  14. Bony Jaw?

    This bony jaw-like fossil was found on Panama City beach in Florida. Any idea what it is?
  15. my son found this at a beach while we were vacationing in Riveria Maya Mexico. we all think it looks like a tooth but it feels like a rock. it's about 4 - 5 inches long (about 12cm). here are the pictures.
  16. Calling Brownies Beach Collectors!

    Hello everyone, I saw this on a Calvert Cliff Facebook group from John Nance of the Calvert Marine Museum, and I figure it should be here too. “Calling all Brownies Beach collectors! If you found any pieces of leatherback turtle shell in the past year they likely belong to this guys shell! This shell was spotted and collected last May. It was first reported by a Brownies Beach collector and others have since added to it. (Will add names with permission.) It’s coming together beautifully! A new donation of 76 pieces will surely help to fill some gaps. If you’re willing to donate what you’ve found we could keep building this amazing animal. Of course you’d be given full credit for your contribution to the project.” I encourage any of you who have found shell pieces at brownies to take a look just and case and drop by the CMM. They are a great institution, very much worthy of the donation.
  17. Need identified please

  19. 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!
  20. 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.
  21. 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.

  23. 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!
  24. 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
  25. Found on Oregon beach

    Very smooth and shiny. Think it could be a fossil? Very tiny. Can you help ID? Thank you! Tooth maybe?
