  1. Possible mammoth fossil?

    Hi All- I found these along a beach in California...any ideas what they might be? They look different than the whalebone fossils that I've found. The larger one weighs about 7 pounds and I'm wondering if the thin lines might be Schreger lines? (I'd rather not cut the specimen to see if a chevron pattern shows inside) Thanks! Cena
  2. Need help with identification

    I found this cool looking lady recently on my property which is located in the border of Denton and Wise counties in Texas. The formation is the Cretaceous Duck Creek Formation: Mortoniceras and Eopachydiscus. What raised my eyebrows about this piece were a few things. On one end of the rock it has several, somewhat uniform, divots reminiscent of that of a golf ball. They are very prominent and looked very odd to me. Secondly was in, and around the whole on either side appears to be agatized material. Further more in those same areas is an agatized “tube” that is perfectly cylindrical. Any idea what, if anything besides a cool rock, this could be?
  3. Found object

    I found this object in Corolla NC this past summer. It washed up after a strong hurricane. Any one know what this is?
  4. ID Help Please

    Good day on the Peace River yesterday. Found horse, mammoth, mastodon teeth along with several varieties of shark teeth. Also pulled up the below specimen. It came up in one piece and I placed it in the shade on the bank. After about 30 minutes I picked it up to move it to my kayak. That is when the piece in my hand broke off. Retrieved as much of it as possible. Got it home in a plastic bag and submerged it in fresh water as soon as I could. Only took it out to take the photos. Small pieces continued to flake off the underside whenever it was touched. I tried to position it as it was found before the break when taking the photos. Any help in identifying what it is would be greatly appreciated.
  5. Novice seeking ID help

    Photos of two more Peace River, FL finds. Smaller one a tooth, claw, antler tip? Larger piece Dugong, tooth, other? any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
  6. Beach fossil / Shell ID?

    Found this at the beach at Titlow Washington. Titlow is in the Eocene time period btw. Was not sure what it was but it fizzes under Hydrochloric acid so its probably somethings shell. About 2 inches long. 1 Inch wide
  7. Rapp beach

    One of the problems with beach hunting in Virginia is that the colonial period in the 1600s and 1700s had more people and more traffic than today, and there are lots of "modern" bones and teeth mixed in with the other stuff. I found something which I originally thought was a tooth (there was light black enamel stippled all over it). It is not heavy or thick like most fossil bones I find. It has a very distinctive face/head (about an inch across) with shallow "crosses" on each side and a deeper cleft in the middle. One part of the cleft is a circular hole that leads into a channel that may have supported blood vessel/ nerve bundles? So many people here deal with bone I am hoping someone will recognize it. Thanks.
  8. Lance creek repaired

    I received this shattered baby in a field flat of fragments I ordered through an online trading site out of the Lance Creek formation. Pardon the crude repair but it is a work in progress and my first major undertaking. Trying to see if anyone can help identify what it is.
  9. Can anyone tell me what this is?

    I have a few pieces that I would like to know what they are.
  10. 3 Items wood? sponge and wth?

    three items will post pics of all three separate in this thread..... three items.....Item #1 is this petrified wood? if so its a different variety than i usually find.
  11. Funny smelling fossil?

    I found 3 pieces of this black stuff along the James River in VA (Yorktown formation) It’s porous and lighter feeling than bones I’ve found in that area. It also smells like tar. Does anyone know what it could be? These pieces are 2 inches, but I have another that is a bit longer. The white bits are sand.
  12. bone fragments or sponge?

    a these bone fragments? these bone fragments? found in Brookshire texas in a gravel load by the way the gravel is from the Brazos River item #1 - 5 pics item #2 -
  13. Coral or Bone?

    Bone or Corral? my phone is 4 1/2 inches by 2 1/2 I hope these pics turn out taken with a different phone and in natural light. west of houston tx is the location in Brookshire in gravel.
  14. Utah plate

    I got this from a lady today who says she picked it up with some Dino stuff over 30 years ago in Utah. I am not sure of where in Utah but am looking for a starting point on figuring out what it is. Any help is appreciated.
  15. Anyone know what this is?

    Hi. Can anyone help me identify what this is? (if anything) I'm unsure of what rock it is but it was found on the Jurassic Coast of England. I believe I can see some encrusted shells on it but it has a strange undulating form on the top and an almost fibrous appearance on its opposite side. I've heard different opinions on what it is. I've been told that it may be a shoulder bone possibly from an ichthyosaur or it may just be a section with preserved sand ripples from the sea bed. I was hoping someone could give me a more definitive answer. EDIT - My last photos were too blurry so I've added some better ones.
  16. Hey guys, I dont really know what this could be, maybe just rock, but the color, shape, texture made me think twice - specifically the curved smooth bottom, sharp sides that curve strangely and just the shape in general. At first glance i thought it looked like a meteorite because of the flow-line'esque texture it has in some parts and the bottom side was smooth with little holes with some thumb print 'ish indents, and its darn heavy. But then it also reminded me of some marine mammal and large reptile fossil bones I've seen on here while perusing so I thought I'd ask. Also because of some other things I have found, which I want to ask about as well but dont want to spam all at once. Actually I'll post two of the other things too Found in Menlo Park, California about ~12" inches in ground, maybe slightly deeper. Menlo Park is considered Pleistocene/Holocene alluvial but there have been cretaceous foraminifers found in the towns surrounding Menlo Park. And then there was the paleoparadoxia found during the excavation of the Stanford Linear Accelerator as well, which is about a mile away from me, and they are from the Miocene I believe. Also after reading the USGS geological map survey of my area it seems that theres out crops from every time period, mostly due to the gazillion faults in SF bay area. So Im not really sure what I'm living on. Anyways.. The second rock looks like it has a mouth and some teeth which I found interesting. The third looks like a shell on the one curved end, but also like a saurapelta armor plate I've seen in photos before. Appreciate any thoughts, and if it is rock, do you know what kind? Thanks for your time and feedback!
  17. Onslow Beach find Bone??? Number 2

    Bone number 2 of 3 This does not look like a fish bone to me, but it looks like some kind of bone??? I thought this looked like the head of a long bone... foramen and all. That is creeping me out a bit! What do you’ll think?
  18. Potential Petrified wood?

    Hello, I guess I am an annoyance at this point. I have in my possession What I believe to be petrified wood. It was found in St. Augustine Florida. Thanks in advance. If anyone has any evidence to support or corroborate my theory, it would be much appreciated.
  19. Possible Bone Fossil, Folkestone UK

    Hello, I found this yesterday in Folkestone and was wondering if anyone can help identify whether or not it is a fossil. It is 11cm long, 4 cm wide. It seems to be fully mineralised, it pings like flint when knocked on something hard. Thanks
  20. I was walking near my grandma's cottage near Minsk, Belarus and I accidentally stumbled across this rock and noticed some interesting fossils(?) on it. She said that there used to be a sand quarry there a long time ago. Can anyone please help with the identification of the fossils and possibly the time period? Thank you
  21. Bone in Sandstone?

    I live in north central NM on the continental divide. Is it possible that there is an actual bone covered with sand sticking out of this sandstone?
  22. Is this a bone fossil?

    Found this in Moab, Utah on a hike a few weeks ago. I am wondering if this is some type of bone fossil or just a rock? It is small, about 1.5 inches by 1 inch.
  23. Found this little nugget while trekking through a tilled farm field. Curious as to what I have here. Any input will be appreciated.
