  1. Need help identifying these finds that I found in NJ brooks/streams.
  2. I found this rock in the soil under the root of a maple tree that I am removing. I live in Ozaukee county in Wisconsin. Any ideas what this could be/or if it is even a fossil?
  3. Hi all, Purchased this today at a flea market at a very low price (10€ = more or less 10$!). My first big skull in my collection, I'm very happy with it. It's a kind of deer skull, and all the teeth are in great condition. The seller had it in his room since 18 years, and therefore doesn't know anymore where it comes from (though it's probably somewhere in Europe). Anyone know the exact deer species of the skull? Best regards, Max
  4. From the album WhodamanHD's Fossil collection.

    Four fragments that came with two other labeled theropod too the fragments. These are highly worn and poor in quality which makes me believe that it could be any bone from any thing. Bought online.
  5. From the album WhodamanHD's Fossil collection.

    This came with some other fragments online and was labeled as "theropod tooth fragments". I think it could be that, but there is no way to distinguish it from any other none on any other animal. It's from morroco and is internally porous and quite worn.
  6. I'm thinking maybe ground sloth? Associated? I've had them for awhile(apparently)
  7. I'm heading out in the morning to gather more BV matrix, as it was so popular the first time. Same rules apply, send me whatever fossilly goodness you feel like, and I'll send you a ton of this stuff. I'll try to be selective on the pieces I gather tomorrow, but as always, it's always a gamble. I'm interested in all fossils, verts, inverts, and plants! -Thanks J
  8. Hi all, Anyone can help me figure out what animal this would be from? (Found in Canberra) Is it a skull? I can't seem to find anything even remotely similar on the net. (Although I'm sure it will seem sooo obvious once I get told..ha!) Thank you!
  9. Hi all, On my trip to South Africa, I went fossil hunting at some point (trip report hopefully coming soon). I went to a beach in Cape Town called Milnerton beach (famous for its extinct giant white (aka mako), great white and meg teeth). I also found a few other things, namely a few undefined bone pieces. Anyways in those bone pieces I found this one. It's kind of reminding me of some really thin mammoth tooth, maybe a piece of it? The third pic looks like a chewing surface. Have I really found something cool, or is my imagination just toying with me? Also, does anyone know what epoch the fossils from Milnerton come from? Best regards, Max
  10. Have no idea what this is
  11. From the album Naughtistic fossils and rocks

    Another picture
  12. Hi all, I found these (modern) bones on one of the beaches of the Cape of Good Hope (South Africa). All three bones were found about 3-5 m apart, so there is a chance that they come from the same animal. We have a rib, a vertebrae, and a jaw (missing the teeth). Anyone have a clue on the ID? Thanks in advance, Max
  13. One of my finds today in north LA looks like bone but the round top is suspicious. Either way it's cool looking! Anyone seen anything like this?
  14. Hi there, I bought a hadrosaur caudal vertebra online a while ago and I was wondering what genus/species it is? It is from Southeastern Utah - I'm not sure which formation, the seller didn't say. Just joined up and would appreciate any help or suggestions! Thank you!
  15. Here are some bones and teeth from Ernst Quarry in Bakersfield that I can't figure out what they are. They are unusual and stand out from everything else I have collected there. The longer bone I suspect is fish or bird. The one on matrix with a fish and sea mammal vert I thought was a whale ear bone at first but I am not sure because of the weird shape. It almost seems like some sort of tooth. There is another included that is very similar it but not on matrix.
  16. So, I think this might be a bone. Any ideas?
  17. Hello Everyone, I've been lurking for a year or so on the forum, and appreciate the members intellect and interaction on this forum. I do a lot of sifting streams, and came upon this bone washed out from the mud bank in what is usually a NJ Cretaceous stream, though I believe there are some Pleistocene? era fossils that are found there from time to time. Any idea what it may be? Interestingly, there were some type of rodent? gnaw bites on it too from what looks like a long time ago. I have a few other images I will upload too. Two other small bones were found alongside it that may or may not be related to it. Thank you for letting me into your community! I will most definitely be sharing other finds with you all. Nick
  18. Found this at guana park (between ponte Vedra and st Augustine) on the beach. I showed it to an orthopedic surgeon/fossil expert I know and he thought it might be a sloth patella. I honestly don't know. I also found a nice shark's tooth in the same area. I'm pretty sure it's a great white.
  19. If you have any clue what this could be, please let me know . Found in Michigan, in our creek buried in sand. I thought it was a bone. I see a hole, then something more inside the hole. I tried posting the best pictures. There is one picture that I got the rock wet. It also looks reddish? Thank you.
  20. I was geode/rock hounding this past weekend in Southern California near the Az border out in the desert and found this. Just curious to know if it's rock or bone and if it is bone should I take it to be looked at. This is unlike any other rock or anything else I've seen out there.
  21. Hi! I found some pieces of petrified wood of Cretaceous Period, and same time found some fossile that has not typical structure for wood. It looks like fingerprints or something. I think that it is bone. Could somebody tell me what is this, and if it is bone - what animal it was belong to? It was found in Kazakhstan. Sorry for my english and thank you!

  22. Found these in Big Brook over the past few years. Unfortunately, I am not knowledgeable enough to identify these with any certainty.This one obviously looks like a shark tooth, but I question it because it is not made up of the same shiny material as the other "regular" looking shark tooth fossils we found. No clue about this glob.Porous The top tooth has a sandy texture and less boney look but same shape. The left one does not seem fossilized to me. Not sure if prehistoric squid or something like a claw or nail? Centers seem to be a little hollowed out.
  23. I found this and thought it might be a claw? Found in the Eastern Washington/North Idaho area. It weighs 20 oz and measures 5" x 4" and is about 1.5" at its thickest point. I do have more pictures but I'm having sizing issures. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
  24. Hello again, I found this bone in the North of France, Boulonnais, in Jurassic deposits. The fossils found here are mainly marine but sometimes terrestial. I have no idea what this bone might be. It is rather complete and I guess that it has some characteristics which would make ID possible. Especially, the "branch" on the right of the first pictures. The bone goes a little bit deeper into the matrix, approx 2-3 cm. See the last picture. Hopefully, somebody can help me. Regards, Niels
  25. I found this big chunk of bone on the North Sulphur River last Sunday. I know IDing the exact animal or what part of the animal could be difficult. Just looking for any info. Marine reptile, mammal, or dinosaur? Age?
