  1. Dallas creek Rudists fossil?

    I found this long cylinder sticking out of the creek wall few weeks ago. I had no choice , but to break it from the rock. Ended up in several pieces. I'm not quiet sure 100 percent what this is. I searched the forum, but can't figure out other than Rudist.
  2. Fossil Horse Tooth?

    This is the first larger mammal tooth I came across while fossil hunting for megalodon teeth in South Carolina. Tooth was found in a stream in the general area between Charleston and Summerville along with some Meg teeth. What do you suppose this came from? Camel, horse, giant ground sloth?
  3. Pleistocene mammal bone ID please

    Hello. I went down to local creek today and found some interesting mammal bones. These bones were found in 5 to 8 feet below the surface layer, but just above limestone gravel layer. I'm thinking this maybe some large animal, but does't think this is a cow bone since buried too deep.
  4. Texas marine cretaceous creek fossil

    Hello everyone, I've been doing some creek fossils hunting in Dallas area recently and came across/found numerous bones in pieces. Not sure what these vertebrate bones these belongs to, but they are 12 inches or smaller and looks like mostly arm or leg bones. These animal used to swim, crawl around here around 140 to 66 million years ago. Buried in Eagle Ford Shale or Austin Chalk limstone layers about 10 to 20 feet down from top to bottom in the creek layers.
  5. Hey everyone, Recently took a trip with a buddy of mine down to South Carolina to search for megalodon teeth. We found many small teeth along with some decent sized ones. These were found in the general area between Charleston and Summerville. The ruler is imperial. Big thanks to everyone who offers their guesses Pictured are three of my biggest from the whole trip. What are they?
  6. Possible fossil, need help!

    I found this rock while fossil hunting a devonian era stream. It looks symmetric, so i kept it. I just have no idea if its a fossil or not. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
  7. Fossilized Bone?

    I found both of these bones within a foot of each other poking out of the surface of a creek beside my house (I live in North West Indiana). They both seem to pass the burn test and tap test, although this is my first time finding potentially ancient bone, so I'm not certain that they are fossilized. Could anyone more experienced confirm that these are fossilized? Or recommend any other tests?
  8. Texas possible fossil find??

    Hello guys and gals! New to the forum and the study of geology! It is starting to be a very rewarding hobby! I found this unknown specimen in a wet creek bed in Fort Worth Tx. I have no idea what it is just trying to get more information about it that could point me in the right direction.
  9. piscataway creek tributary

    I'm heading to DC soon and have been going over my Rocking Hounding Delaware, Maryland, and DC book. I'm looking at site 69, Piscataway Creek and Tributary. When I google earth the location for parking and the fossil outcrop, there is a yellow sign on the guard rail up from where the outcrop is. You can't read it from the google earth images, and I'm wondering if it's some sort of no trespassing type of sign? There were 3 cars parked in the spot he suggested parking, but it looks like the shoulder keeps going just to where the outcrop is. Instead of hiking 1000 feet down this tributary, wondering if you can just climb down from the end of the shoulder there into the outcrop area? If you don't want to respond here, feel free to shoot me a PM. I'll have the family in tow, and planning on telling them to just go do something else while I hike down there with some waders and come back to pick me up. Thanks in advance.
  10. Trip to Trussells Creek

    Our family went on a day trip with the Alabama Museum of Natural History to Trussell's Creek recently... It has a loads of Cretaceous shark teeth... when you sieve the gravel bar in certain spots, every load will bring up a couple of teeth. Most broken though! Here are some of our finds (mine and my youngest son). Mostly shark teeth, but I did find some bits of bone, baculite parts, and a fish corprolite. My daughter found a cepahalic clasper from a shark! (It went to the museum).
  11. GMR! Here I come!

    Howdy all! I'm super excited about this and I'm looking for expertise and knowledge from all of you! I'm working in Chapel Hill, NC next week and I've paved out a day to FINALLY visit GMR!!! I'm a total noob to this area and what to expect. I've been doing research but I would humbly ask you all about your experiences, local knowledge, where to park (safely), points of entry, tools to bring (i have an good idea), areas to avoid, concerns, etc... I'm doing this alone unfortunately but that also adds to the adventure! I still haven't found my meg yet and it will be sometime before I'm able to get back out to Brownies Beach or Calvert any time soon... SO! I'm really eager to make this visit a great work out and to find some awesome treasures to share with my little boys! I wish they were old enough to come with me!
  12. Hey everyone!! So I posted last week (sorry had the wrong link there for a minute!) - but my mom found some interesting things in our creek and it was suggested they might be nautiloid fragments! So obviously we went back to look for more. We found a ton of rocks that are similar. I think a lot of what we found might just be concretions but here are a few that seemed interesting to me and I'd love another opinion on! They all have some sort of hole/dimple which I'm not sure is something that occurs in concretions? If it helps - they were all found in the creek bed in Groveland, Livingston County, NY and a geologist friend said she believes the rock on the creek bed appears to be shale slate. I'm at work without a ruler right now, so I had to use the Mary Anning post card I have on my desk for scale haha. It is 6 inches (15.24 cm). I promise I'll get a ruler soon if I'm gonna keep asking for help!! Thanks in advance!!

  19. Pattern on South Carolina creek rock

    Hi all, i found this while while looking for teeth in a creek in South Carolina, and the pattern caught my attention. Any idea what it might be or what might have made that scale-like pattern? The rock is 1 inch in length and about 0.3 inches wide. thanks in advance!
  20. Has anyone tried Shell Creek?

    Just curious if anyone has tried hunting for fossils on Shell Creek in Punta Gorda! Not shell fossils It’s pretty close to me but I’ve heard mixed reviews on it.
  21. Ricky’s Mazon Creek thread

    Hey everybody! Welcome to my Mazon Creek thread, where I’ll be posting pictures of various Mazon Creek finds! I’ve been hunting there for upwards of 10 years, so I have piles of uncracked nodules just waiting to be opened. So as they open, they’ll find their way here! Feel free to jump in and add your own and keep this thread going! And I’m sure there are many that have gone unidentified, so I’ll probably need some help from the experts!
  22. I spent most of Friday at a local creek with expert friend.... We found some nice things. I got an intact goblin shark tooth about 2.4" long, and some fossil turtle bone. My kids had a great time sieving in the stream. Ammonite impressions in the mud are common; I wanted to to share the largest one I saw, as well as my largest goblin shark find. We saw some good wildlife; the kids caught a garter snake. My daughter saw a mysterious creature that jumped into the water. I took some pictures of the footprints.... a mink maybe? What do you think?
  23. Bone found in Washington State creek

    I found this bone in a ditch with no teeth marks or chewing on it. Obviously I believe this is modern as it still smelled of death and decay (I ran it under soap and boiling water and then rubbed it with sanitizer. and even then I don't touch it without a napkin) I was curious if my hypothesis was correct about this being a deer femur bone? I wasn't sure because I'm no bone expert but maybe someone here knows, all I know is we have deer, bears, cougars and possibly elk or moose but that would be rare. This was found in a creek by Murdock beach Washington State on the Olympic Peninsula (temperate rain forest conditions near large ocean.)
  24. Fossil found in Missouri creek

    Hello! i found this fossil today in our creek. Anybody know what it might be?
  25. Is it legal to collect fossils from creek beds that run through private property (owner unknown) if accessed from public property? It is my understanding that creek beds are owned by the state (correct me if I am wrong)... does that mean collecting from these locations is OK?
