  1. Hello! Im new to the Houston area Moved down from Virginia Beach, where fossilized shark, stingray teeth are common. Decided to walk along local creek found lots of interesting old bottles, pottery fragments, fossilized wood and shells, eventually came along three large fossilized bone fragments and one interesting partial fossil. The only fossils I’m familiar with are the shark teeth exc. common to my area help identifying these and knowledge on other common local fossils is much appreciated.
  2. ID Help - Possible Coral

    This was found on October 9, 2020 in a creek bed in Warrenton, MO. It is about 6cm x 7cm. I am no scientist and I have no idea how to identify what we found. This website was introduced to be by one of the science teachers at the high school where I teach. Any help is appreciated. Thank you.
  3. Rock Hunting Franklin NC

    Hey Fam! Going to be in Franklin, NC for a few days in October. I’m fixin to do as much rockhounding as possible which I believe goes without saying. I’m looking for resources in the form of Areas where I can sift, walk river banks and what mines (I probably only want to spend money on one) are worth the time devotion to. My parent’s place is on a mountain which is full of creeks. Am I bound to find some neat stuff just hopping from one to another? What can I expect? Any information is greatly appreciated!!! Edit: I grabbed a UV light off Amazon because I’m told Rubies and Garnets Fluoresce at night.
  4. In between this trip report and the last, I have moved from Houston to Columbia, where I am studying biology at the University of South Carolina, so now I have the opportunitiy to take day trips down to Charleston and Summerville to go fossil hunting, which I am very much looking forwards to doing some more of sometime soon. I made my first trip since moving in on Saturday afternoon to a little creek in Summerville I last hit roughly two and a half months ago. You can see the fruits of that particular trip here: Now, I'm pretty satisfied with the results of this trip, but something important to take away from this, especially for those of you interested in hunting the Summerville area, is that I had both my younger brothers in tow for my July trip to the same creek, and even after 2.5 months and a hurricane, I'm not even getting a sixth of what we pulled out of that creek in July. I hope this illustrates to you just how slowly these Summerville creeks replenish. As has been said many times, if you're traveling to SC to find fossils, your best bet for a good experience is going to be just paying the money to go on a guided fossiling trip with a company like Charleston Fossil Adventures, Palmetto Fossil Excursions, or Charleston Outdoor Adventures. On this trip I sifted gravel for most of the smaller teeth, and the big stuff I found looking through the gravel banks. I really like the colors on that beat up angustidens I found, and that vert is the largest shark vert I've found. I also got a nice Hemipristis lower and a nice bull shark tooth. I'm looking at heading down to Charleston in the next week or two, so expect a post about that sometime soon.
  5. Fossil? Egg?

    I’m new to the whole artifact and fossil hunting and actually forum posting! I would like to get opinions on this following find. It was found in a creek in SE Missouri. And any pointers on hunting and identifying would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
  6. What type of coral is this?

    Hi there, new member here, what an incredible forum this is! I'm learning so much. Living in NE Indiana, USA, we are quite aware of a number of types of coral fossils. My five-year-old son has found hundreds of types of coral fossils in our landscaping rock alone. We also found all manner of fossilized shells and even a few trilobites! This weekend we stumbled across a fossil in a nearby creek bed and aren't sure what to make of it. Any help is appreciated!
  7. Is it a tooth?

  8. I've got a pair of sandals that usually work great for creeks... but a couple of weeks ago I went to creek that was full of stones that continually worked inside my sandals. So, I would like another shoe that will keep stones out for use in creeks like that one. Anyone know of a good, not too expensive, water shoe for creek use that might fit the bill?
  9. Fossilized teeth ID

    Decided to take my kids fishing today at a creek we frequent sometimes. We were getting ready to start packing up and head home when I look down and see what I think is pretty colored rock partly buried in the ground in some sandy soil(I'm a rock hound, lol) Upon unearthing it i was surprised I had stumbled upon this pair of amazing fossilized teeth! The excitement is real and I've never found anything like this before! I have no idea what these are from but I'm sure sone kinda bovid. I'm also in South Arkansas btw if that helps any! Thanks!
  10. Jobsite Find

    Good afternoon to all. A colleague and I were doing some exploring in a creek bottom on our jobsite located in Fannin County, Texas. The creek we were walking in drains into the North Sulphur River. As we were walking we noticed a large bone sticking out of the creek bank. We decided to grab a couple of shovels and do a little more excavating. We came across multiple bones. As you may see in one of the pictures, we had to do a little digging in order to reach much of the bones, they definitely weren't just lying in the creek bank. I will upload more pictures with measurements. I kinda want to gauge if we stumbled across actual fossils, and if so we were hoping for some sort of inclination of what we may have found. The coordinates for the find are 33.4122,-96.0804. We were at least 15 feet below the grade of the jobsite in the creek.
  11. Need Help with Identification

    Hi everyone, need help with some identification here. The first photos of the brown looking tooth was found in Edisto, while the bone you see was found in Dorchester Creek in Summerville.
  12. Found this in the bank of a old river system which is now dry. About 8' down on the bank same layer as the fossil I'm finding some coal/coal tar deposits. This stream (Dry Ripple Run, Blue Rock, Ohio) has also produced petrified wood and mastodon teeth. The fossil below looks like a large tooth or bone? Fibrous bone structures very close up if you zoom in. Charteristics: Dense and heavy Location details: soil layer contained decaying plant matter some coal noticed in same layer Size: Width 5.5 by length 5 inches
  13. BIG BROOK PRESERVE, NJ. Creek fossil. June 14th I was able to identify all of the fossils we found on our hunt yesterday, including a nice goblin shark tooth, but I found one item that is a mystery! I attached pictures. I originally thought it was Lenni Lenape money... but realized wampum is made of shells and much larger. I then thought it was a Dutch colonial button.. but doesn’t look like any of the ones online. Is possible to be some sort of “bead”? Or petrified wood button? It is very very light in weight.. but solid.. and the imprint on the one side is a perfect thumb fit. Or is a fossil? Is a small fish or shark vertebrate??!?!?! (I didn't think so, because it seems to flat!) Thank you sooo much for any insight and ideas!
  14. Northeast Texas

    I did a six mile kayak trip in Northeast Texas. I found a little bit of everything.
  15. Anyone know what this bone might be?

    This bone was recovered from the banks of a creek full of Cretaceous fossils in Montgomery, AL. All images are different views of the same object. Any ideas?
  16. What is this fossil?

    Found this fossil in Warrenton, Missouri in a creek. Would like to know what it is.
  17. Large Coral Fossil

    Large coral fossil found in Stewart County Tn
  18. My son pulled this bone out of a creek in Montgomery, AL yesterday. The creek is full of Cretaceous fossils. It is very heavy and dense, like stone. What might it be?
  19. What kind of shovel do you prefer to scooping up gravel in creeks for sifting?
  20. My family and I have recently made a few trips to Mussell Creek (Alabama), which contains the Prairie Bluff Chalk. This the is very end of the Cretaceous in Alabama. I have been told that in some places this formation shows evidence of the Chicxulub tsunami, though I do not know if this is visible at this site. In one of the pictures I am pointing a stick at the Prarie Bluff Chalk. Right above that is the Paleogene. We have found small shark teeth, urchins, coral, baculites and snails at the site, along with large amounts of shells, including some nice Exogyra (I think) oysters. Unfortunately, I don't have images of the fossils yet (they aren't super exciting, except that some of the Exogyra are really well preserved), but as you can see it is a truly beautiful site, and wading in the cool creek makes for some fun fossil hunting. My kids are all better fossil hunters than me....my youngest is insisting I get him a screen with 1/8 mesh so he won't miss any of the really tiny teeth! (how does he see them?)
  21. Please help ID this

    Hello everyone. My husband and I found this today while combing the creek bed of the Escondido Creek located in Encinitas, California, USA. We believe it is a tooth. It looks quite old, however I am not sure whether it is fossilized. We are not fossil hunters or collectors, just everyday amateurs who stumbled upon this find. Any help identifying it would be greatly appreciated, thank you!
  22. Hello, My 6 year old son found this in a remote central Indiana creek yesterday. We looked a little online and it looks similar to a bison tooth but was hoping for some expert advice. We love the colors and were surprised how well it was preserved. We came across this site and wanted to see if anyone had any information. He was wading in the creek looking for shells and just pulled it out of the water. Thanks for any information you may have along possible age. He is so excited and can’t wait to show his teacher on their next video call.
  23. I searched every body of water on Rockd to see any sedimentary deposits that are near me; there is nothing. Everything is metamorphic, but then I came across Lytle Creek. I wen't on the map on Rockd and checked and it said something about sediment deposits. The info was too confusing; I couldn't find any easier info.
  24. Good Afternoon Y'all! Took the pup out to one of my favorite spots this morning and came across this odd ball. Never seen anything like it. It was in a part of the creek that had been washed out from all the rain yesterday. No markings on it or shell impressions. In the same area i come across mostly those bottle cap looking shells and a nice little bit of coral if that helps. Found in Austin, TX down near the pleasant valley bridge on the east side. Thanks for the help!
  25. A few troubling fossils

    Hey guys, I got a couple of fossils I am struggling to ID. All fossils shown were found in Fallen Timber creek, Ab, Canada. They were found along a rock bed along the creek itself. The first set of pics is a rather common fossil I find, with it being a imprint of some kind on a black rock. Was wondering if somebody could ID the actually imprint itself as I am having trouble doing so (think it is some kind of coral or other "aquatic vegetation"). The next set is a bone shaped object, looks to be the end of a joint. But I am unsure if it is just fracturing in the sandstone creating the pattern or if it is an actual fossil (as the inside is sandstone). Last I have a very odd shaped rock with some bumps and odd patterns in it. Unsure with this one as well if it is a fossil or just a rock. (ignore the green tint in the first photo) (also in the first photo set, the specimen wraps around the rock) Thanks to everyone for the help
