  1. 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.
  2. 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
  3. 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!
  4. Northeast Texas

    I did a six mile kayak trip in Northeast Texas. I found a little bit of everything.
  5. 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?
  6. What is this fossil?

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

    Large coral fossil found in Stewart County Tn
  8. 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?
  9. What kind of shovel do you prefer to scooping up gravel in creeks for sifting?
  10. 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?)
  11. 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!
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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!
  15. 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
  16. Unknown fossil in sandstone

    Hey there, I am new to this forum and so far it seems very lovely. But I have found this fossil in a rock outcrop on a creek. I am unsure what it is and would be very thankful if someone could help out. The fossil itself is embedded in sandstone and has many grooves/lines coming from the top and trailing towards the stone itself (The larger specimens). The fossil was found at Fallen Timber creek (not the campground) in southern Alberta, Canada. (I would upload more images/angles), but for some reason it won't let me after two even after compressing the images)
  17. Vertebra ID

    Hello brand new member hello everyone! I have been out collecting about 10 times this year in SW Florida found this today, was pretty excited to pull this out of a creek off the peace River . It's about 75mm wide and 75mm tall (3") it's pretty light weight for it's size . Thank you if you can help identify.
  18. First Thought is Whale Rib Parts

    I guess my first thoughts are whale bones. I have found some vertebra and a phalanx down the creek last week. These were buried in the creek wall and I believe in the Yorktown Formation. They are very heavy and have a solid “ring” to them when they touch. They’re on an 8.5” x 11” sheet of paper for size reference!
  19. I found this bone today in a freshwater creek in Virginia, along with some old scallop shells. I’ll post a four pics of this bone first and then the others that I found last week that were pretty certainly identified as a small whale vertebrae and a flipper phalanx. Curious what this new one might be. Thank you!
  20. Name these Trilobite

    These are the smallest I have ever seen but the detail is awesome. Found in Greene county Alabama creek bed. Do they have a name?
  21. Would it be possible that these two bones would come from a similar animal? I have been told with pretty good authority the larger is a whale vertebra and am curious about the smaller, found in the same creek, 100 feet away. Also Chesapecten shells found in the same creek.
  22. Hi all! I'm making a sudden and quick trip to Gainesville FL and will have about a day to do some fossil hunting. I have heard about the hogtown and possum creeks and will likely visit those no matter what. But I was wondering if anyone had any advice for other places to check out. I can travel a little bit out of town but won't have access to a kayak so would need to get somewhere on foot. Any and all advice would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks and I'll post my finds after the trip!
  23. Any id on this one please? Also found near a creek. Beginner here. Thank you.
  24. Fossil Id please -near St. Louis creek

    Any id on this please? Beginner here. Thank you.
  25. Last year I was given some cool micro matrix from Rattlesnake Creek ,I think the age is Miocene thought to Pleistocene. It was generously given to me by the amazing @GeschWhat thanks Lori. I have only just gone through the matrix and I was not disappointed. The micro matrix was packed full of shark, ray and fish material, as well as an small bone. Here is some photos of my finds. If you can ID some of my finds, it would greatly appreciated. cheers Bobby 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23
