  1. Not sure what it is?

    Any ideas on whether this is bone or a piece of coral. Found it in the beach in the outer banks last week
  2. Git it from the beach few years ago. Is it some sort of fossil? Cheers
  3. ID bone, help

    I found this bone (rib) in a cave in Slovenia-EU. ???
  4. Fossil Bone or Not?

    Found this on the shores of Torrey Pines State Park one day. Thought it was a strangely shaped marine rock, but then realized it may be a bone fossil fragment. What do you think?
  5. Hi All, hoping you can tell me what these may be from. Found near Hamilton, KY. I have included multiple pictures with a ruler as well. Let me know if you have any questions. Found on a creek.
  6. Dinosaur rib bone?

    These two pieces of bone like things are from Henan. Are they rib bone fossil?
  7. Bone found on beach

    Hi once again all My 6 year old Son came across this on the beach while we were out walking. Looks like an old vertebrae with a stone wedged in it? Any ideas appreciated.
  8. Old bone

    Hey everyone! I found this bone in a north Texas creek. It’s obviosly very old and worn. I find bones all the time and I leave most of them where they are. This one looks very old to me so I brought it home. Any ideas about what it could be? Thank’s!
  9. Ichthyosaur vertebra

    From the album Holzmaden

    A 3 cm long Ichthyosaur vertebra from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden. The preparation was kinda hard because at the beginning you could only see the cross section: And here is another picture of the prepped vert:
  10. Bone & fish fins?

    "digging" around in my Winchell fm micro matrix, I found a few interesting items. One I think may be a bone of some sort from something & 2 other may be fins. The bone is 9 mm in length, the larger fin is 1 cm & the smaller one is 5 mm. First set is the bone. Both sides, both ends & an angle of one end.
  11. Obx bone

    Any ides on what this could be and what it’s from. Thanks mike
  12. Obx finds

    I found these sea robin plates and this bone on the beach today. I was wondering if any one could help with what the bone came from. It has dimple looking things on one end that makes it look like a horses snout. Thanks mike
  13. Triangle Shaped Bone?

    Does anyone know what kind of bone this is? We found it today in Post Oak Creek in Sherman, TX. Thank you in advance.
  14. Small bone found in north Texas creek

    I found this bone while looking for shark teeth in north Texas. It appears to be fossilized or at least very old. Any ideas?
  15. Big Bone with Weird marking on it

    Another Bone Valley Florida find, Peace River, Polk county, Hawthorn group. This large weirdly-shaped bone has a strange (to me) marking/pattern on it. Is this a big gator bone maybe? (it's the big "crab claw" shaped bone on the upper right). Second photo shows the opposite side with my hand for scale. Thanks!
  16. You will love this!

    Approx 1” square and 1/4” thick... this is a good one!
  17. Found this nicely-fossilized bone and I can't decide whether it's deer or something else. I seem to recall finding one similar to this a few seasons back, but I can't find it now and I cannot find any reference to it (I don't think I was posting here then). Does anyone know what critter this bone belongs to?
  18. Weird Bone, Bone Valley Florida Find

    This is an oddball that I am having trouble identifying. Does anyone know what this is? It was found in the Peace River, Bone Valley formation, Hawthorn Group, Florida in mixed Miocene/Pliocene/Pleistocene deposits. Black cube is 1cm square. Thanks!
  19. Ichthyosaur vertebra

    From the album Holzmaden

    A 1.2 cm long Ichthyosaur caudal vertebra from the quarry Kromer in Holzmaden (Posidionia shale, Lower Jurassic). Some more pictures: The prep took about 1 hour and I used an air pen and a sandblasting machine.
  20. Bone piece from the Banjaard

    Hi everyone, I found this bone piece on the Banjaard beach in Zeeland, Netherlands. It is most likely Pleistocene in age, but could be a little older. Seeing the structure in the inside I think it's part of the skull of some kind of big mammal, but I'm not completely sure. Do you guys agree with cranium piece? Any clues as to which animal it might have belonged? Let me know if more pictures are needed. Thanks in advance, Max
  21. Lance Creek bone

    Here is another Lance Creek piece. I’m thinking it is a piece off an Edmontodaur vertebrae. How far off base am I?
  22. pretty sure these are petrified wood but a couple have me thinking bone? ... I find it fossilized in several different ways so makes it hard to distinguish sometimes. also finding a variety of different types of woods.
  23. Fossilized bone found on North Sea beach

    Sorry I do not know terminology yet... I found this North of Amsterdam and I would love your thoughts. Thank you!
  24. Kem Kem fossil bone

    This partial bone from Kem Kem was listed as unidentified but possibly Spinosaurus (no surprise there). It's a pretty substantial plate-like piece (154mm long). Not in great condition obviously, with missing material down one complete edge and likely in other directions. I've not really been able to work out what this might be but it has a distinctive concavity at one end and some surface structural ribbing running down one face. I've included an illustration that tries to show (with hatching) where the missing material was. Probably a long shot but maybe someone will recognize the surface ribbing and may be able to place it.
  25. Horn, bone, petrified wood?...or a big 0

    at first glance I was thinking petrified wood but in looking at it it looks kind of hornlike possibly and antler or fragment? but then it may just be another odd rock.
