  1. Iowa Mystery Bone ID

    Need help identifying what appears to be a tooth or bone of some sort. Found in the far northeastern part of Iowa (almost South Dakota) about 8 inches deep in the sandy shore of the Big Sioux River. The left and right side appear to be very slightly broken off, as well as what I would assume to be the bottom.
  2. Found in Wildwood Crest, NJ

    I found this on a family vacation this August on the beach at Wildwood Crest, NJ in the ocean. It is 4.5 cm long, 2.5 cm wide and .75 cm tall. Does anyone know what this is?
  3. Lyme Regis fossil ID

    Hi! I found this on my recent trip to Lyme Regis, UK. It would be Jurassic in age. Found on the beach, so I can’t say what layer it came from unfortunately. Its striations are quite ornate and beautiful, and I’d love to know what it is! Bottom view
  4. Corolla NC Beach Find

    One more Corolla NC beach find. No one has been able to help me yet. Fossil, rock, slag?
  5. Help Identifing

    I would like help to identify this "rock" I found this past Sunday near Topsail,NC
  6. I picked these up today for super cheap and would like to gift them to a picky collector I know. Color is actually very black pictures seem to lighten it significantly. If any of you have any knowledge on these I'd appreciate your opinion. I also got 2 little ones from same man liquidating his deceased aunts house along with a really great vacuum! The large one is whole. The 2 pieces are 3" each and are only halves
  7. Hi, prob a newby question. But while I was trawling on the net, I noticed that Trilobites from different regions of the world are different colours. For eg: Morocco - black Russia - sandy brown China - sandy brown Is there a reason for this?
  8. what is it?

    Found in Pennsylvania, it is somewhat light but has a little weight to it. It Also shows up on a metal detector.
  9. Fossil?

  10. I live in Kitty Hawk, NC, and have the glorious Atlantic Ocean down the street. On a recent beach walk, I found what appears to be a fossilized bone from a large marine creature. I have looked through photos online and have not been able to identify it... and I am hoping someone might have a moment to satisfy my curiosity. It is approximately 9” wide and 6” tall... see photos below. I would be happy to take other shots if needed. Thanks very much!
  11. Someone’s gotta know....

    I found this piece last weekend on the side of the James river. I cannot tell if it is old or just from an animal that died recently. The end of the curved piece reminds me of an animals tooth or possibly even a long nail. It is round with black on the outside. Very smooth like enamel. I really have no idea. Who are my smart fossil ppl out there who can identify it...?!
  12. 3 years ago a very gullible me bought a lot on ebay containg what were sold as Spinosaurus aegyptiacus teeth. It was pretty much a disappointment, i paid a lot for teeth in a very bad shape, visibly glued together and with sediment still attached to them. I was a beginner at collectig fossils so I considert that purchase as false but needed step. However this particular tooth intrigue me. It's in a very bad shape, but it's different from the others more "pale" (and fortunately better) Spinosauridae sp. teeth that I had in my little collection. It was written that they all comes from the Kem Kem formation, but I don't know if that's true. Can someone identify the specie to which it belog? Thanks Fn8
  13. Not a crionoid!! Fish part?

    This was discovered while hunting in the Burlington Limestone in no other than Burlington, Ia. If anyone has hunted this formation, they would know 90% of the rock is made up of light colored crinoidal debris. Occasionally a brachiopod s encountered and they may be darker than the crinoids, but pale against this. I know there is a fish layer in the Burlington and am hoping that this may be the ID.
  14. Whale bone?

    Found this while fishing a pond in SW Florida. Do you think this is a whale bone? Thanks for any comments. I thought it was a hub of an old wheel and threw it away. Thought about it all day and when I got home today, I dug it out of garbage can already on the curb.
