  1. Cool rocks I found in Devine Texas

    Hi everyone! I haven’t been on here, or posted In FOREVER. These rocks were in a creek bed in Devine TX. When I found a pocket There was a soft sometimes liquidy sometimes dryer Chock like substance. There was three colors. Red, orange, and almost yellow. Is this what the cave drawings were made with?!?! I don’t have good pictures of the chalk stuff right now bat can get them later.
  2. New Help with an ID

    Hi my granddaughter and I found this along the creek bed in house springs, mo. I think that it is a bone of some sort and there are shinies in all the dark spots. Especially the top where the hole is. The hole is very porius I'm assuming because of the marrow. So I'm assuming it's old but just an amateur hunter here and never found any type of bone before I have more photos but these give the best description. 1st photo is standing up. The rings shine. 2 photo is of the side. Dark spots glitter. 3 is on the side but slightly turned. 4th is the bottom. 5 is front facing again bottom brown ring glitters. 6th Ariel view not very good.. 7th is of the dimensions of the hole. The whole piece is about 1 1/2" wide by 2" long. The hole is about 1" wide by 3/4" deep. Like I said the rings and dark spots are shiny like it has quartz in it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I would like to know if it is for sure a bone, what kind of bone it is, and also If you know what animal it could be from, if it is a bone. Thanks everyone!!!!
  3. Cluster of crinoids?

    Hi thanks for taking the time to look at my post. Just for verification, I'm wondering if this is a group of crinoids in one rock? I found this near the Mississippi River in a Creek bed in Northeast Missouri. Thanks
  4. What could it be?

    I found this in the creek bed near the Mississippi River in Northeast Missouri. The size is about equivalent to a milk jug. Thanks for looking!
  5. Need ID

    What did I find?
  6. One of my finds from yesterday. Found it on the surface in a creek bed here in W KY. (That is 99% of my finds!) Apologies for not knowing the geology & time frame. Not quite sure how to go about figuring that out yet. Could this be a sponge or coral? It's about 12 cm long, 9 wide at the widest, & heavy, probably 2 lbs. at least.
  7. ID this fossil

    Don’t have any idea what this is??
  8. I found this one yesterday. I recently got back into the hobby of rock tumbling and was looking for rocks for that when I came across a few fossils in a creek bed in North Central Arkansas, USA. This one resembles a "pigs in a blanket" sausage wrapped with crescent dough. I thought the inside was just dirt and mud but it is solid. It is 2 inches at the longest point. The hole is approximately an inch in diameter.
  9. What is this?

    I found this is a creek bed in north central Arkansas recently. Seems to be sandstone type material. It is 2 1/2 inches long and 1 1/2 inch wide at the widest part. It is hollow all the way to the end. I find some arrowheads and other Native American relics in the same area so wasn't sure if it's a fossil or a relic of some kind.
  10. While I find interest in every fossil my daughter and I find, I’m feeling a bit frustrated at finding only Crinoids. Yes, I think they’re cool, and I don’t want to be ungrateful, but I’m getting a bit discouraged.. I’d like to find something other than a Crinoid. Now, admittedly, I only know certain places to look, so that’s why I’m reaching out for help. We’ve primarily looked in creek beds, and along the trails we walk. I’m in Boone County, MO. Can anyone give us any tips on other places to look where we might find something other than a Crinoid? We’re new to fossil hunting, so honestly any tips you have will be well received and we’d be so grateful for them. Thank you in advance. (photos for attention.)
  11. Bryozoan Archimedes? Tooth?

    I’ve got 4 fossils, or steinkerns, I’m needing help identifying, all on the same rock. Found in a creek bed in Boone County, MO. I believe it to be from the Mississippian Era. I believe those labeled one and two are Bryozoan Archimedes. Number one (the biggest of the two) measures at a little over 1/4th of an inch. Number two measures at almost exactly (slightly over) 1/4th of an inch. Number three I’m thinking is part of a stem of a Crinoid? Can anyone confirm or deny this for me? The fourth is, what I believe to be, a steinkern of a possible tooth? Like, a tooth laid there at one point, and the impression was left behind? It measures at exactly 1/2 inch. (Due to file restrictions on pix, I will upload some pix in the comments.)
  12. NOT a chicken bone

    I found this in a creek bed in New jersey, an amateur fossil site (I don't remember the name, but you could apparently find megaladon teeth at the site.) It is 3.5 inches long, and is a lightweight, hollow fossil. It has two holes and an arch on the larger end of the fossilHere's some pictures (sorry about camera quality, I'm doing this on a kindle)
  13. What are these?

    Missouri ordovacian period. What are the raised oval fossils? Are they brachiopods that have been worn down? Something else? Thanks for your thoughts. This entire rock is about 10 inches long.
  14. Smilodon

    Hello, I'm new to the site. Recently, I found what I thought was a petrified banana in a creek bed. However, someone told me this is a Smilodon tooth, but it measures about 6 inches in length, and not quite two inches at the widest. I'm still betting on a banana:) Any assistance is greatly appreciated!

    Sending a new fossil I found in Southeaster US, SC Summerville area. Found in a creek that had many different formations in it. Im still learning them but looks possibly like plant life fossil. Not sure what but looking sideways I can see the distinction between the rock portion and what I am trying to identify. Any help would be great! Side angle.
  16. New Hobby Question

    Hello. I am new to fossil hunting. I've found a few in the past, but on this hunt while in a creek bed I found this one. Can anyone tell me what I found? Is it worth looking in the same creek bed? I am in Upstate NY.
