  1. Found this rock. Looks similar to when fossil bones are polished. I doubt it is a bone but is there a good way of telling the difference?
  2. Fossil or strange rocks?

    I was walking on the beach in Cape Charles, VA and both of these ‘rocks’ turned up in the surf together. I feel like they may be fossils but I am not sure so I am turning to you experts ;-) If they are not fossils then are they bone or just very strange rocks?!? Thank you!!
  3. Found in Newcastle, Australia. Gastropod?

    Hello i found and removed this small fossil from the rocks in Newcastle, NSW Australia. Is it possibly a gastropod?
  4. Beach comber find

    My 10 year old daughter found this in the surf in Panama City Beach, Florida. Seems to have two rows of teeth on one side. She’s super excited. She thinks it looks like a baby alligator snout. Input is greatly appreciated!
  5. I found this in the sand right at the water of the Warren Dunes State Park beach. Maybe hard to tell from the photos, but there are definitely pores where the tooth would have broken off. There’s also a ridge that I am guessing shows where the tooth would have emerged from the gum line. I didn’t set that ruler up very well. It is just over a half an inch or 1.5cm long. From the ridge to the tip is about a 1/4 inch. And the width of the base is just over a 1/4 inch. My apologies if this is just some dog tooth or something from the last decade or so.
  6. Venice Beach Florida

    Total strikeout at Venice Beach Florida today. Not a single tooth. Wonder what I was doing wrong with the stiffer tool? Others on the beach alwo had no luck today.
  7. What kind of tooth is this?

    This washed up with the surf in Panama City Beach Florida 2018. I cannot find what kind of tooth this is anywhere. Its cold and hard like a tooth. Please help me identify the type and era it came from.
  8. Hello! I found this on the beach in Bay Head, NJ. Is this some kind of tooth? Any ideas what kind? I have additional photos if that would be helpful. Thanks in advance!
  9. Seeking Newport OR Loations

    We are going to Newport, OR this weekend and would love to hear of some places for us to check out as far as searching for fossils. Any ideas? Thanks!
  10. Is this a shark tooth?

    Hi all, My name Jackie, but my friends call me Jax, and I am visiting Onslow beach from Fredericksburg Va. I joined this forum because I found what looks like a tooth of some kind to me on Onslow beach. The couple I am with are local and have found tons of small black ones on this trip, and they have quite the collection at home as well. The "teeth" I keep finding are identified by my collector friends as "that's a rock". I found what appears to be a tooth of some kind, and I hope someone can help me ID it. I hope this doesn't become a new obsession, but considering I have spent a valuable hour of beach time researching what may, or may not be a shark tooth I fear it may be too late. Thank you. Beast Regards, Jax
  11. Is this flint anything of interest?

    Hi, I'm new to this, so I'm not sure if I have the right tags or I'm in the right forum. If I'm not please point me in the right direction My children and I found a bit of flint on our local beach. It has some odd markings on it and we were wondering if it could be a fossil of some kind? Can anyone help please? Thanks
  12. Shark tooth ?

    Hi Everyone! Fossil new guy here. Just recently moved to a beachside town in Spain. During my afternoon walk, I came across the "tooth" shown below. I'm located on the Atlantic side of Spain. The tooth was just mixed in with stones and shells along the shoreline. Any help would be great!
  13. Hi! I’m new on here and not super familiar with fossils. However, today I was walking on the beach in Hatteras Village, Hatteras Island, North Carolina (a part of the Outerbanks). I stumbled upon what appears to be an old bone of some sort. For the life of me, I can’t figure out what type of bone it is/which animal it is from. Any ideas?? The photo is posted below. For some reason, the other photos won’t upload, so I will try to upload them in the replies hopefully.
  14. Hi everyone, I just got back from my morning trip to the beach and am thrilled to have found another nice tooth. Last night I went out and the tide was much too high, I ended up leaving after a few hours with only a few small teeth. As I searched the beach for the first hour this morning, I started to worry that my luck might finally be running out. Thanks to Memorial Day weekend the beach was absolutely packed, which was an unpleasant change of pace from usually having the beach mostly to myself. As I started to lose interest and consider heading back to the car, I decided to check up higher in the dryer shell deposits as opposed to where the waves were reaching. As I walked a few feet up the beach, I almost immediately stumbled across this tooth, lying completely exposed with footsteps surrounding it a few feet in each direction. The tooth was almost fully dried out at this point and must have been sitting there for close to an hour as the tide had receded 10-20 feet down the beach. Tourists looking for shells littered the beach in every direction, I was in shock that nobody had seen this tooth all morning! I have attached a photo of the tooth as it laid in the sand upon finding it. Unfortunately the tip is a little damaged, however the root is probably in better condition than every large tooth I've found here. Additionally, the coloration of the tooth is very different compared to the jet black teeth I am used to finding. Although I didn't end up finding much else in the next hour or so (a few small teeth), I'm really happy I decided to head out this morning. It's funny how when the hunting has been really good, just one bad day can really kill your confidence. At the same time though, just one good tooth brings it all back! I'll be back out there soon... Cheers!
  15. trip to leamington area

    down there anyways so why not stop by the beach! as a bonus there were many bird calls which i did not recognize and a few birders whom stopped by but then left because of the fog.
  16. found this interesting coral fragment

  17. Mammal Tooth/Jaw ID help needed!

    Hello! This is my first post so I hope I am following all of the protocol:) . My family and I are amateur surface hunters. Mostly along the beaches searching for shark's teeth, mouth plates, and various other fossils. My father found this on Edisto Beach, South Carolina this past weekend. It was partially buried in the sand, but he could see the outline under the sand and pulled it up. He discovered what appears to be a partially fossilized mammal jaw. It looks to be a horse or other hooved animal jaw. I was unable to find a similar looking tooth online. These are just the photos I snapped on the beach. I can post better ones if needed. Would love any help or pointing in the right direction! Thank you for your time!
  18. Megalodon Tooth?

    Hi everyone, I just returned from a morning beach hunting trip and found what I'm thinking is a small meg. I'm not entirely sure though, because nearly every other larger tooth I've found here has been identified as angustidens. It was found on Wrightsville Beach/ Wilmington, North Carolina. I'm thinking meg because of the lack of cusps. Anyone?
  19. I found this on the beach on the Long Island Sound, NY. Any information would be much appreciated. Thank you.
  20. Best Teeth of the Month

    Hi everyone! I've had quite the month here in Wilmington, NC. After some recent dredging, I've been scouring the beach (often multiple times a day) for any good finds. As far as beach hunting goes, this is by far the most productive month I have ever had, with some of my all-time best teeth coming out of Wilmington. I'm really excited to share some of my finds with you guys. The teeth pictured are only the best ones found from April 20th to May 20th, 2018. There are many more not pictured that did not "make the cut". If anyone has information about any of my teeth or would like an alternate angle of a particular tooth, please reach out! Happy Hunting
  21. Possible Mammoth Tooth?

    Thank you for looking at my fossils. I think that I found several different fossils that may be partial Mammoth teeth. Editing to add location: Everything was found at the beach in North Carolina -- South Eastern NC - wrightsville beach. I will seperate the photos so that it won't be confusing. THANK YOU!!!! Fossil 1) FOSSIL 2: FOSSIL 3) FOSSIL 4)
  22. Possible Mastodon -- Part 2

    PART 2 - Hello! I was hoping that you could help me identify some things that I found.

Editing to add location: Everything was found at the beach in North Carolina -- South Eastern NC - wrightsville beach. Below are 2 sets of images. I am talking to my childs 3rd grade class next week and I am bringing in some of my finds..

Possibility 2:
  23. Possible Mastodon

    Hello! I was hoping that you could help me identify some things that I found. A couple years ago I found a Mastodon at the beach in North Carolina and it was identified by the helpful people on TFF. I believe that I have found several fossils that could be partial Mastodons. So that I won't confuse you with multiple fossils / pics I will just post this one below. I think that the one below contains multiple teeth? I am talking to my childs 3rd grade class next week and I am bringing in some of my finds.. I don't feel comfortable bringing anything in that I haven't had identified so any help you could provide it greatly appreciated. Thank you for taking the time to check out my fossils.

  24. Found on Lake Huron MI beach

    A total newbie here looking for an ID. Thoughts?
  25. Could it be a recent bird egg fossilized?

    So I was on a hunt for Patoskeys over on lake Huron and I came across this very odd find. It looks to have the exact qualities of an egg. I have been searching around to find others like it and have come up empty. Any help?
