  1. Can you tell what these are please?

    Hi all I know nothing about fossils but have been tasked with finding out what two fossils are. Please see image attached. Are they ammonites? They were found in Pembrokeshire. Many thanks in advance for your help.
  2. Mystery Beach Pebble

    Hi everyone, A friend has asked me to post this rather beautiful mystery rock for ID, it was found by a friend of his on the Norfolk Coast UK. Unfortunately that's all the info I have on it with regards to find locality. My friend is thinking its biological in origin but I'm pretty convinced its something geological, it reminded me of cross bedding in sandstones and I came across some diagrams of cross trough bedding that seem to show an identical pattern but I cant seem to find any good photos of real examples. Any suggestions much appreciated! Regards, Sam
  3. Suspected modern bone

    While i was on the beach today near whitby i found this bone. I didnt bother taking it because i’m sure its modern, but i’m still curious. Is it a chicken leg bone from someones bbq?
  4. This leaf was found in the same location as glossopteris leaves. Is this anything different?
  5. France coast beed?

    Found this on a beach near Sete, France
  6. Megalodons in Virginia

    I'm heading to Richmond Virginia tomorrow and will be there for 5 weeks for work. Wondering where are some good spots to find some shark teeth and hopefully some nice Megalodons. Have any of you guys had any lunch over that way? Any information is much appreciated
  7. Maybe a cetacean

    Hello. I found this piece the other day, and I think it's some kind of vertebra. What do you think? The coin is big, about 1 inch. The surface has small porous. The interior is solid. The weight is about 6 kg = 12 lb. I found it about 250 m above sea level, and 2 km from the coast, in a place with a lot of small marine fossil.Is it a cetacean ?. Thanks!
  8. Trip to Saltburn

    Took a family trip to Saltburn yesterday, just up from where we normally go (Redcar) and made some discoveries, one of which looks like a nautiloid. I made a video of that last one, the possible nautiloid:
  9. Is it even a fossil?

  10. South Croatia coast finding

    Hi, This is a picture in situ of my finding, that I could not identify. I would be grateful for any suggestions.
  11. Complete Tiny Lizard Or Paperweight?

    This little specimen actually found me as I walked the shoreline somewhere between Manhattan Beach, CA and San Diego, CA. (It's been 20 years so . . .) But I do remember the tide was rolling out. The waves literally washed it over my feet but I was able to grab it before it rolled back into the sea again. After sitting in a dark closet for 17 years I finally took a serious look at it and realized it was probably something special. But instead of passing it around for a professional opinion, I chose to display it on my desk. Every single day for 3 years I looked at and studied this little guy; and so did anyone else who walked into my office. Without fail, everyone is fascinated. What I See: About the size and shape of a jumbo egg, perhaps a little larger. The entire body of the lizard is completely wrapped around the sphere with the top half its body on one long side and the bottom half of its body literally wrapped around to the other long side. On the top half; the skull, upper body and one arm is visible but the other arm appears to be hidden underneath the body. The opposite side shows both legs completely stretched out and clearly defined with its bones, joints and even a foot visible. There appears to be something attached to the spine that looks like it could be a tail. It too wraps around the entire sphere. But what I find most fascinating is the flesh and outline of its entire body are extraordinarily clear! My Take: It looks like an egg with a complete lizard embryo inside. It's outer shell long worn away after spending millions of years being churned and thrown around by the ocean. I've been calling it "My Little Lizard Friend" for a few years now. But I was really hoping someone here could tell me its proper name, age, etc. Thank a bunch. I'm just a wannabe but loving every minute of it.
  12. I figured it was a mollusk, but my knowledge of such is very limited. I have made a shot in the dark that it is Gryphea? But I am unsure if it would even fit the time period (Miocene) or the location of the Astoria Formation in Oregon. Please put any guesses you may have even if they seem totally wrong. By the way Its glossy texture is due to a coating i put on it due to its tendency to flake off pieces, not the fossils look.
  13. Pleistocene unknown

    This piece was found in southeastern Maine. The last thing on my mind at the time was any sort of fossil. The area is granite ledges split by basalt dykes interspersed by cobble beaches of similar rock type. My turning point on the trip was the end of a cove that is pounded especially hard by the winters storms. The cobble is piled 20 feet high in a wall 60 feet wide at the base across the cove. As I got back slightly in the lee of some boulders I noticed the snail in what I recognized as the Pleistocene clay of the Presumpscot formation. I only noticed the other side after I got it home. It's not mineral. Fails a tap test miserably. The snail is on the under side in the other photos. What the heck is this thing ?

  15. I found this claw, toe bones and other bones and teeth on the Brazos River, Texas.
  16. Hello! I am not really a fossil collector- or any kind of expert- but I do like to collect natural things I find in various places, and have held on to these for a few years without having an idea if they're really anything at all. I found this forum and would absolutely love some help! Even if there is no identification to be had, it would be great to know if it's still worth holding onto- or... just a rock. The first is a white hard substance with some interesting spiral patterns in it. As you can see in the first photo, the inside chamber of the main form is hollow. I found it on a California beach, probably Pismo?
  17. Greetings. I am a newbie inside the world of fossil hunting and I would be very happy if someone could help me to identify this broken fossil I found at a quarry. I am actually living in the Balearic Islands were is possible to find fossils from the devonian to the miocene and the one I found is lying at the lower level of a coast quarry in the island of Menorca. This area of the island was formed during the miocene and is full of bivalve fossils like pleistocene Pecten. The fossil I have found looks like a robuste bone which is about 16 cm (6,3 inch) long and which you can see at the picture I have attached here, thank you very much in advance.
  18. What fossil is this?

    Hi! i found this fossil, among with many others which were Crinoidea in limestone. This was lying amongst the limestone pebbles which contained minute fossils. This one caught my eye, at first it looked like a rock but on further inspection it got me thinking it could be some sort of fossil. It has lines running along it, in one direction, they taper down to the bottom which I also have took a picture of. It was found on the coast, and the site I went to is renowned for its many crinoid and coral fossils. The whole shoreline was mainly limestone. I was thinking it was some sort of coral or shell. It measures approximately 5cm in length. Maybe a belemnite? Thank you!
  19. ID help, please.

    I found this on the beach this morning. It was actually along a riverbed that runs into the ocean on the coast of California. I found other bones that appeared to be fresh and likely from a cow but this one was considerably older and smaller.

  21. Charmouth

    One week to go and a whole week in heaven.

    Found this thing that looks like a fossil of some kind, but I am not sure at all. Can someone please tell me what it is?
  23. Hi, after beach combing along the North Yorkshire coast I found a rather large fossil. During another trip I found a smaller fossil and several types of stone, not sure what any of them are as I am a total novice. Would really appreciate any advice. Many thanks.
  24. Hello. I found this on the Northumberland coast in England. What is it please; is it a marine or land fossil? Please can you tell me as much as you can about it... the name, when it lived, is it a rare or common find, etc? Also, please could you say what type of rock this is as it seems different to the usual varieties of sedimentary rocks I see/find on the Northumberland coast - it is harder, with a uniform texture and has a kind of look/feel of hard, glossy toffee? Thank you very much. Best viewed at full size.
