  1. How big did mako teeth get?

    Found these in a creek the biggest one bottom right is 2.25” the one next to it with the broken root Has smaller blade but same length all together. The next is 2”. I was wondering if these are really big or more like above average? Thanks
  2. Antorbital fossa

    Hi I’m wondering what the Antorbital fossa is for in dinosaurs. I heard it could be part of muscle attachments or nasal passages. If so if a dinosaur has a big Antorbital fossa does it mean they have better nose or stronger jaw muscles. Thank you!!
  3. Tooth ?

    Here is a piece from the Big Brook area in New Jersey. I've had it a while but never got around to posting it. The texture looks like tooth ?
  4. We have many wonderful threads that let members show off some of their fossils. Threads like “Fossil du Jour” and your “Latest Mail Box Score.” In that same spirit, I wanted to see if anyone would be willing to share examples of some of their BIG fossils. It could be as simple as the largest fossil in your collection, or the largest example you have of a certain type of fossil. Just as long as you would in some way consider them to be on the large side. I’ll go first. This is the largest fossil in my collection. It's a piece of petrified wood. Its roughly 15in long x 14in wide and 4.75in thick. That's about 38cm x 35.5cm x 12cm to the rest of the world. I can't find my scale to weigh the thing, but it is at least 50 pounds or roughly 22.5kg. I would guess it to weigh more. Unfortunately, I have no information on this piece. It was gifted to me by a friend who had it gifted to them by someone else. This is the largest crinoid columnal (in diameter) that I have ever found. It's about 1.25in wide (3.1cm). It's from the lower Mississippian. (Borden Formation, Muldraugh member). Unidentified as of now.
  5. Fossil Fish: Neoproscinetes?

    Good day, I'd like some help to identify this fossil fish. It is nearly 11 inches long. From what I've searched it looks similar to Neoproscinetes, but I'm no master of fossil fishes. I'd like to know its species name and if it is indeed a real fossil fish.
  6. Three Big Brook Fossil ID's

    The long object = crab claw? hoping for a unique tooth or something Reptile scale? And gastropod with interesting design?
  7. I've searched multiple sites with no luck, Please & Thank you to everyone who contributes (:
  8. Hello! Back logged on things I cant ID so let's start with this beast of a fragmented tooth.(about a inch and a half) Thank you all .
  9. Big ol' shell

    I grabbed this shell today because I thought it was absolutely beautiful. Plus I heard these shells are getting rarer and rarer. I know it's not a fossil, but would anyone be able to possibly give me an ID? The length is 8 inches.
  10. Good looking gastropod needs id

    Hello from Cyprus, this one I found near the old limestone quarry in moni area, again the heavy rain , when the mud sliding settled, it exposed a piece of it. 3m under the usual surface It is quite big and very well preserved. In the same wall I found also another kind of gastropod, corals, 4 kinds of bivalves. I will post on other threads soon. That wall consisted of beige/white earth and grey hardened sand like parts, still needed metal needle tool to scrap it off, of some specimens. Also most specimens are whiter that what I am used to find. Which i think it could be fossils, yet younger ones, like 80-100k years old?
  11. Big gastropod

    Hello plz share your thoughts on this one It is a gift from a friend, who doesn't remember where exactly he found it, however he thinks it was Akamas Peninsula in Cyprus.
  12. Hello from Cyprus, warm wishes for exciting finds to everyone! Here is a relatively bigger oyster than my usual finds, this one is complete and inside small crystals have formed, could be calcite not sure. Took advantage of the heavy rainfall and found it on muddy collapsing hills north of akrotiri area. I found half, and half a meter further I dug out the other half Perhaps you can better see the small crystals that formed all over inside both parts below Nearby I found also the following: found position, but i think they are not matching and this single one
  13. Big sand tiger

    Went to brownies today, miocene, and I’ll have the haul until here later this week but I would like to know what species this sand tiger is. It’s purty big for a sand tiger, like an inch and a half. It’s got two cusps on either side, they seem to curve inward. I saved up for Kent’s book on fossil identification so I’ll have that by the 28th.
  14. Big bone piece!

    Hi all, Last weekend, on the beach of Wassenaar, not far from the Zandmotor, I found several things. Surprisingly a lot more than I expected (I usually never hunt here), but I think that there was a big storm which brought lots of new fossils and other things to the shore. This is was one of them: a big piece of bone. It looks like it’s the end section of a limb of some kind. I can’t tell whether it’s modern or fossil... The looks of it scream modern, but somehow the burn test seems to say it’s fossil... Note: if it is indeed fossil, it’s likely from the late Pleistocene, about 40’000 years old. Well, what animal do you guys think this bone piece came from? What part of the skeleton would it represent? And would you say it’s fossil or modern? Looking forward to your answers! Max
  15. So after hurricane Maria at Puerto Rico, I got curious about the small river down the mountain of my backyard so I went down to explore it. To my surprise some boulders tumbled down due to a soil erosion so I started exploring the scene. I found a few rocks that are actually some very peculiar fossils. The thing is that I don't know anything about fossils in PR so I'm going nuts trying to figure it out! Is it some kind of fish? But it's too big to be a fish and the bone-like structure is quite solid. Professionals and expert paleontologists, please help!
  16. Palm wood ?

    From my first trip to the brooks a few years back. I just called it plant at the time. Am I even close on either ?
  17. Big Dinosaur Bone Needs ID

    Here's another picture, hopefully more informative, of a bone I got from an estate. I really know nothing about it. I did know slightly the last owner and while he wasn't a paleontologist, he was an expert in old things. (Intentionally vague.) He did say it was a fossil of some sort though he didn't know what kind. This is a continuation of a topic I started yesterday. I don't know how everybody but me can put in more than one photograph in this forum. I've got my camera formatted so that it takes hugely pixelated photographs and I still can't fit two pictures in this forum. Beware: I've got another topic (same topic) following just so I can get a third picture in.
  18. Big Dinosaur Bone Needs ID

    This is the last of the fossils I got from an estate. There's no information on it. I don't know where it came from. It is a good sized one, though. It is about a foot (31 cm) long.
  19. Went to Big Brook NJ for the first time this summer with the kids. Liked it so much we went back several times. For first timers we were very happy with the hauls. May look rather plain to the seasoned people here but wanted to share. Thanks, Jason
  20. Big brook nj help please

    Found many teeth at Big brook nj. Lots of fun. I'm new to this. Any help would be appreciated. I think all the done shaped objects are just rocks but I thought I'd pass it by the forum. The object that looks like a seed is fossilized it is not modern can't scratch it, doesn't burn. Thanks in in advance. Jason. If you'd like more pics just let me know
  21. Nice teeth, but what is it?

    Does anybody have any idea what this could be. I'm afraid I know absolutely nothing about it. I got it from an estate. All records and provenance are lost. The head portion of the rock is about five inches (12½ cm) long. There are a few bones below the head.
  22. Miscellaneous (identification needed)

    Needed verification on a few finds. I'll number the pictures to avoid confusion. 1 and 2 above. 3 and 4 below
  23. I accidentally broke part of this fossil when I dropped the rock it was in. It measures about 8 inches with a 2 inch diameter. No clue what it might have belonged to. This was also found on the Dry Frio River.

  25. Biggest Cardium I ever found...

    From the album Recent Finds

    10cm in length, it is the biggest Cardium fossil I ever found (from a total of more than a thousand in the same area). In the 2nd picture you can see Calcite crystals below the same fossil.. Attika, Greece, Zanclean era
