  1. Found this on the beach

    Found this on the beach in oregon about 20 years ago. Any ideas?
  2. Possibly some type of bone?

    So sorry for all the spam, I just have so many items I’d like to get identified. Found this at a site along the Southern California coastline, along with many other specimens (some already published looking for ID). Can’t tell if it’s bone or some type of petrified palmwood (this site is littered with chippings of palmwood).
  3. Whale Bone?

    This was found at the same site we recovered a possible manta ray tooth from along the coast of Southern California. It has two to three distinct layers, one very thin layer possibly 1mm thick (on the outter side, displaying some black tar-like markings), a layer about 3-4mm thick (just below that thinnest layer described above), and the last layer being 3/4 of an inch thick (this layer is very porous). Can only provide one photo as I’m limited to the size of the upload, I possibly can upload more images if possible. Looking if we can get an ID on the subject, thank you for all of your help.
  4. Fossilized Tooth?

    Hello there friends, I’m new to the community, so I don’t really know how this works. I have a couple of artifacts I’d like to get an ID on, starting with what seems to be a Manta tooth?
  5. Leave them be?

    Hello All, First let me say that I am happy to have this forum. It is great to have such a diverse community at our finger tips. I have lots of common beach finds that I am not able to ID and so I am wondering if I should stop picking them up. Thoughts and advice as to what these fragments might be. I’m especially interested in the top left corner items, as I do not know what formed them into that shape. Everything Else I can identify - gastropod molds, Indian point, teeth, coral, and maybe some bone fragments. The last 3 pics are of an item I found a few years ago in the same area. I did not know what it was until I got it home and cleaned it up -glad I did not leave that one Be! It is amazing.
  6. Fossil ID

    I would appreciate an Id for this item, I found this on the coast about 15 years ago
  7. Fossil Hunting Oregons Coast

    In a week or so I am going to drive the 5 hours from Tacoma WA to Beverly beach Oregon. I know I will find some fossils there but I also know there are many good spots around this area or maybe on the way that many Oregonians or other fossil hunters may know. My main trip goes like this. 1. Leave Tacoma WA 2. Drive to Gleneden beach 3. Drive to Beverley beach 4. Drive to seal rock beach. 5. Drive home. I am hoping for a little guidance for this because I am driving so far, I want to be sure I'll find something. My goal is to find some clams and maybe some turritellas from the Miocene. Let me know any suggestions that would be on the way / are near the Oregon coast. if anyone could tell me about their experience near Beverley beach I'd love to hear what you found and how to best find fossils there. I am open to Private messages about specific sites as well
  8. Fish or fowl?

    Found this specimen at the edge of the water while shelling this past Sunday, January 12, 2020, at Navarre Beach in Santa Rosa County, Florida. My first guess is that it is the top portion of the beak of a species of bird, but found nothing when I Goggled it. It measures 35 mm in length and 22 mm at it’s widest point. I really appreciate your help and apologize in advance for my “beginner” status and lack of knowledge in the field. Sincerely, DB
  9. A video I made showing some of my finds from Summer. Hopefully you enjoy. Collected near Whitby.
  10. fossil identification!!

    found this on the beach and am curious as to what it is!! let me know!
  11. Saurid Skull, Croatian Coast

    Hello Sorry I'm new I just registered to find some answers Yesterday while searching for some fossilized clams or marine stuff I came across this little beauty. It's about 7 cm wide and some 5 cm high. I found it at the Dalmatian Coast in Croatia. Anybody knows what it could be? And, what do I do with it now? Do I carry it to a museum? Kind regards
  12. Found today on the English Yorkshire Coast ( Runswick bay). At first i thought it was maybe layers of a type of fossilised plant but I cant find anything to match the markings on this. Completely baffled by it. Looks very cool though. ID help, please?
  13. Weird fossil - what's dis den?

    Hello! I found this on the beach today. It's a great site for Belemnites, bivalves and the occasional Ammonite. The beach here is at the head of an estuary which enjoys big tidal surges. So many of the fossils have been washed along the coast from well known Jurassic sites like Whitby. They're usually ocean polished and removed from any cortex by the sea. So this little guy is about and Inch and half long. It looks like a lobster claw, but surely a fossil lobster claw wouldn't be this well preserved? It's definitely stone and gives a lovely "" noise when tapped against another stone. Any advice from you lovely people would be amazing
  14. Possible Fish Fin North York coast?

    Good morning guys! I’ve recently been exploring the coast of North York and found ammonites in abundence I also split open a rock to reveal what appears to be a fish fin of some sorts can anyone clarify this for me!? It would be greatly appreciated! I’ll also post some pics of the anmonites found and if anyone knows what species they are could you inform me please! Thanks for your time! Also sorry about the poor lighting of the ammonite picture Hope they can still be made out.
  15. I've also recently found what appears to be a large segment of fossilized bone combing the coast of Yorkshire at the bottom of a cliff. Could just be a rock with a similar shape for all I know but it looks like a fragment to a larger piece of bone. Any help would be greatly appreciated before I decide to discard it. Thanks guys!
  16. I had a free morning last weekend, so I drove out to Jalama beach. A while ago while searching for good places to fossil hunt near Santa Barbara I saw this post and since then have stopped by twice for a few hours each to crack rocks without any luck. This time I finally found myself a Jalama beach fish. It's not in good enough shape to identify (for me, anyway), but it's nice to finally get something. I had read that the south side of the beach is more fossil rich, so I walked south until I didn't see any people and then started working my way back. The fossil-rich layer is a beige layered rock. This link, referenced in the post that got me interested in Jalama beach, refers to this formation as "the diatom beds of Lompoc." The cleavage is extremely nice and it reminds me of the green river formation fossils you see around (although it seems the fish are usually smaller). Most of the rock in the cliffs is a reddish brown crumbly rock without many fossils, and the first time I came I wasted a bunch of time messing around with that. You definitely have to poke around a bit to find the fossil rich rocks. Anyway, I found the fish almost immediately, and didn't find anything else as I worked my way back for the rest of the morning. I think next time I'll try to go even further south. There are a lot of fragments of algae fossils around and I only picked one up because it looked kind of interesting- I haven't really put any effort into identifying it yet. If anyone else is thinking about going to Jalama beach, I highly recommend bringing along a sharp flat chisel (see picture). I bought rectangular knife stock on Amazon and then sharpened it. It definitely helps in getting the rock to break along a plane instead of shattering, which is usually what happens with a regular geology hammer. Also, if you'd like some company I'd be happy to hunt with someone else, I don't really know anyone else in the area that does this.
  17. Is this a vertebra?

    Id be very grateful for an ID, found loose on the coast of Yorkshire, evidence of a recent cliff fall. Area known for mesozoic finds, ammonites, ichthyosaur finds etc. length just over 6cm, circumference -widest bit- just over 16 cm. If it is bone, like a vertebra, how do i care for it? Thanks.
  18. What is this?

    Hi everyone. This is my first request for an ID, I'm a complete newbie with limited knowledge but very eager to learn. This might be nothing, but I thought it was strange. Found loose on a Yorkshire beach (UK) unsure whether it was washed up by the sea or came away in a cliff fall. Area known for ammonites/Mesazoic/Jurassic finds. Measures approx 9cm in length, 18 cm circumference.
  19. 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.
  20. 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
  21. 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?
  22. This leaf was found in the same location as glossopteris leaves. Is this anything different?
