  1. Unknown fossil

    Hi all, I was wondering if anyone knew what this was? I have absolutely no idea. It was found in the hell creek fm in South Dakota. TIA
  2. fossil ID for possible NSR bone

    Last month I went took my first trip to the North Sulphur River and while sifting through some gravel I found this. It is 16 mm long and 7 mm wide and resembles a bone to me, but I am no expert. Does anyone know what it is?
  3. Hope you can help! Thanks

    Hope you guys can help found in Illinois in a creek. Southern Illinois near st. Louis
  4. What is this?

    Found these in a sandy area in Central Mississippi, USA.
  5. A Bone (?) from the Miocene

    I found this today at my local shark tooth site in the Miocene Burdigalian. It's a rather unique find for this site if I'm correct in thinking that this is really a bone fragment. It's not all that well preserved, so if it is one, it's probably not easy to identify, but I thought I'd give it a try here anyway. It's 3cm. long. Anybody have an idea?
  6. ID requested please

    The location of this is unknown but I'm working on it. It was given to me by a friend who either found it at Palo Duro Canyon, TX or in Colorado. Another possibility is that it is from her ex mother'-in-law's rock collection which would be from Montana or Nevada. Sorry for the vague location! I'm trying to get more accurate information but wanted to see if it's even something interesting and worth spending the time to track down the location with a possible call to an ex mother-in-law. Thank you for your time and input as I have zero knowledge of fossils.
  7. Mystery fossil from a newbie

    Does anyone have any idea what this might be? I found it on the beach Galveston Island, Gulf side west. February 2020 on a grey and windy day. I am new here, where ever we have traveled my head has always been down in the hope of finding new treasures. To hold a relic of ancient times in your hand is something very special.
  8. Hi Everyone, This is a beach-find from Haida Gwaii, Canada. I realize it’s not a fossil, but perhaps because someone has already said it’s most likely bone- I was looking for more help to narrow (or marrow!) it down. Approx 20cmx20cm Thank you!! I appreciate your input.
  9. Bone or suggestive shape?

    Picked this up Wednesday on my last visit to the Peace River. I was prospecting on some new sites and having modest success with small shark teeth and turtle shell pieces when I pulled up my first complete dolphin/porpoise periotic. In the next sifting screen I found the below specimen. I thought it could be a partial axis vert of some type but am not sure it is anything more than a suggestively shaped rock. Any input on what it may be would be appreciated.
  10. Partial Vert?

    I believe the below specimen is a partial vertebra. But if so, of what? Or is it just too broken to ID? Any input would be appreciated, thanks!
  11. Seeking ID help

    Found this specimen in an area of the Peace River where I have found partial Mammoth, Mastodon & Gomp teeth. Also have found a small piece of fossil ivory nearby. I think this latest find is a piece of a tusk. Any input from those with more experience would be appreciated. Thanks!
  12. ID Help - Fossilized Bone?

    A friend who lives in Moab, gave us some of the fossils she had collected in the area over the years. She said that she thinks this was found in the Cedar Mountain Formation (early Cretaceous period) - we weren't sure what exactly it was, but noticed what appears to be cell structure so wondered if it was bone. But if it IS bone, the it must be pretty weathered because it is hard to tell what bone it would be. This is a rather small piece - around 4-5 inches long by 1 inch high. Any thoughts? Thank you!
  13. Petrified wood?

    Picked this up from the Peace River last week. Started to toss it to the bank thinking - another piece of dugong - then I noticed striations on all sides and both ends. They don't appear to be cross - hatch (Schreger-Patterns) but raised my curiosity to a level that made me keep it in the hopes of an ID. The lines are hard to see in the photos but are dashes (- - - - - - ) in most cases and sometimes form a vee pattern. Any input would be appreciated.
  14. Fossil bone?

    I have a fossilized bone of some sort would love for you to take a look at it.
  15. 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
  16. 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?
  17. 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?
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. 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
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. Can anyone tell me what this is?

    I have a few pieces that I would like to know what they are.
  24. 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.
  25. 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.
