  1. Top of a long bone?

    Hello again! I also found this yesterday It was weathering out of the ice age clay along the Yorkshire coast. Definitely rock and as I've cleaned the clay off it's resembling bone - but I'm a totes newbie, so it could well be a geologic quirk! What are your thoughts? Once again! Thank you for the advice! This forum is awesome.
  2. What is this?

    Hello, I'm wondering what the fossils in this rock are. there is a large one surrounded by multiple small ones at different angles within the rock, and the fossils look very mushroom-like, although i may be wrong. The whole rock is around 2.3cm on its longest side, the largest fossil is about 1cm in diameter and the rest are all about 0.5cm or less. found in the gravel of a drive in Skegness, Lincolnshire so it may have come from elsewhere. hope to hear back
  3. Wondering what these are

    Hello, I'm wondering what these are. All three of them are about a centimetre long and around 5 millimetres wide, they were found on Skegness beach, on the eastern coast of Lincolnshire, UK. They are roughly cylindrical and ribbed, with the cross-section being a kind of star shape. look forward to hearing back
  4. Help to id fossil

    Recently found at Myrtle Beach. Please help id.
  5. Help to id fossil

    Recently found all at Myrtle Beach S.C. I also found shark teeth just don't know what these are. Any help much appreciated.
  6. Ooo... is dis bone?!

    Hello - l just found this amongst the loose rocks on the beach. It's a small village on the coast of Yorkshire. And isn't accessible except by scaling the cliff or walking a few miles along the beach. The cliffs here are made of clay deposited during the last ice age clay - so they're a real mix of rock types. This block was pre broken. I saw some light shapes on the reverse and found these when I flipped it over. I want to believe these are vertebrae so bad! But I turn to the immense collective knowledge of the fossil forum What have I got here?
  7. Help identifying this odd tooth please?

    Found at oceans view beach Norfolk VA.
  8. I think its a fossilised sea bed?

    I found this on a beach on the isle of wight. I think its fossilised sea bed fragments. It appears to have gold imbedded in much of it. Could someone confirm what it is? I expect it to be fools gold but it adds a good spin to the story when told. Thanks
  9. Bone? Or raw jet?

    Hello again! Can any of you lovely people help me with this one? Could be a chunk of raw jet, but hoping it's a pliestocene bone. This was collected on a beach in the North East of England. I know there are large deposits of pliestocene stuff just out to sea. But there are also large deposits of raw Jet too! Whitby is about 70 miles North and is famed for the stuff. Can you eagle eyed lovelies help me? Also - what should I look for in future? This is super interesting! Thank you
  10. Snorkeling Jax Beach

    Hey all. After being discouraged the past few days looking for creeks nearby or rivers low enough I've decided to plan a beach hunt this weekend in Jacksonville. The plan is to snorkel along the shoreline and dig/sift where it looks promising. Just to get out a little further than the average person would want to look. Within the next week or two I also plan on making my way down to Venice Beach as well and do the same thing. If I did my math right I'll have about 5 solid hours of low tide hunting, more if I dont mind going a bit deeper. (Which I don't)
  11. Another Topsail Beach find

    I found this strange thing on Topsail Island, NC last week. Do any of you experts know what it may be? Thanks
  12. Baby Crocodile?

    Hi there - new here. Found this at Rockaway beach in New York. I don't think it's a fossil but I think it's a bone. My best guess is that it's the middle section of a baby crocodile skull, but I have 0-5% confidence in that, especially considering the location. I was trying to find pictures online, but couldn't find anything with a cross-section, which would be most useful. 2 friends said it's a peach pit, and 1 friend said it's coral, but the symmetry (especially from the sides) makes me think otherwise. But if it is indeed something silly, please excuse my foolishness.
  13. Lake Michigan bone ID Help

    Wondering if anyone knows what this might be from. Maybe it's not a fossil. We found on the Lake Michigan beach near Two Rivers Wisconsin. Theres a small cut un it, where it appears to be the makeup of bone, not rock. Maybe a carpal bone from something?
  14. Help me identify shark tooth

    Can anyone help me identify what kind of tooth this is. My son and I found it shell hunting off a beach in riviera maya. Thank you:)
  15. Unsure what these are?

    Found these in varying places in eastern Lincolnshire, England. Two were found in regular yard gravel and one was found on the beach. (Smallest to largest: 1.7cm, 2.8cm, 3.3cm)
  16. Invertebrate Ocean Beach Fossil?

    Hi! I'm mostly here just because I'm interested in fossils haha, but I was wondering what this fossil might be? It's approx. 3-4 cm (pretty small!), and I also found it on the beach in Puerto Plata (Dominican Republic). This is more for curiosities sake, and just because I find them cool.
  17. Is this even a fossil?

    Hi, I found this down on the beach at Walton on the Naze (UK) the other day - not entirely sure what it is, or even whether it's actually a fossil or not - but thought I'd ask if anyone else has any other insight? It appears to be pyritised, but other than that, I don't really have any clues as to what it could be.
  18. Wood or Shell?

    I found these fragments on the beach in South Carolina (USA) and I can’t seem to find any information about them online. They're approximately 2-2.5 cm thick and feel a bit like metal. Image searches of petrified wood, turtle shell and coral haven’t produced anything similar. Any ideas?
  19. Beautiful Shark Teeth Found

    On a recent visit last week (July 4th) to Charleston, S.Carolina, I went fossil hunting on Folly Beach. I was able to find a large variety of shark teeth that I have been able to id. This large one and the grouping of teeth I am unsure of. After researching I believe that it is a great white shark. The largest one is 2". I would appreciate any thoughts.
  20. Hello everyone, I wanted to share my small collection of shark teeth with you. On the Belgian coast there are a few places where you can find fossil shark teeth on the beach. Most of the Belgian shoreline has been raised with sand which lacks fossils. Only a few places have been spared so there you can still find teeth. I'm especially proud of the Xyphodolamia Ensis, it's rare on our coast. The Odontaspis hopei was found by a friend of mine. - Alopias latidens - Brachycarcharias lerichei - Hyproprion acanthodon - Jaekelotodus robustus - Myliobatidae sp. (a ray) - Striatolamia macrota - Xyphodolamia ensis - Odontaspis hopei
  21. Need help

    Hello my name is brittaney. I am new to this forum. I have been looking for sharks teeth as long as I can remember with my mom. Just this past year my tooth collection has taken a real big turn out. All my teeth I have found have been found on venice beach florida. Great location for shark teeth. I have found a lot but only so many have stood out to me. That I just dont know what they are. I really appreciate the help. Thank you.
  22. Petrified bone?

    His all I found this what I assume is some sort of petrified bone. It is shiny and very hard, and seems mineralised. About 2.5cm long by about 2. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated. I only joined the forum after finding this.
  23. Please help!

    Found this on the beach in NC. Can someone please help me identify? I’m at a loss! Thanks!
  24. Bone or Tooth or something else?

    Not sure whether this is a very beat up tooth, bone or something else? Found on a barrier island along the intercostal, NC towards Carolina Beach. Any clues?
  25. Myrtle Beach Fossil

    Found this odd fossil washed up in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, Eastern shore of U.S.A. It is just over 2 cm. I've found many fossils along the shore here but this one is new to me. Can anyone tell me what it is?
