  1. Kazakhstan Eocene teeth

    Hi guys, I wondered if anyone knew the species I assume they are from the mangyshlack peninsula 1. 2. on the right could be isurolamna inflata?
  2. Otodus auriculatus

    From the album Misc. Cenozoic Specimens

    This specimen is on the boundary between auriculatus-sokolovi in my opinion.
  3. Fish Spine or Jaw bone Maybe?

    I have found several of these fossils over the last few months and would love some help identifying them. Most are small, less than 1 inch long and difficult for me to photograph with any real detail. But the last one I found is much larger by comparison. It's just a fragment but it's about an inch and a half long and 1/2 inch wide. They all taper from one end to the other and they all have raised bumps down one edge and a deep groove along the other edge. The flat sides are textured. They were all found in a creek in Southwest Alabama, US alongside Eocene shark, ray and sawfish teeth. Suggestions so far include silurid spine, stingray barb, fish jawbone, and a piece of Noah's Ark. I have not been able to find matching examples of any of them. Any other ideas, or pictures to confirm one of the previous suggestions? I posted some videos I shot if that helps. Not sure if it's permissible to link to them here so apologies if not... Thanks!
  4. Went up to Douglas Pass, Colorado today for a hike with my wife. I have always hunted for fossils at the Radar Dome location. Today we decided to scout around for another location to collect. Hiked up a very steep hill to a shale exposure and found this larvae after only 1 minute of looking. We had not come prepared today to collect anything. Will probably head back up next weekend. The larvae is approx 2.25 cm across. There are also some parts of other larvae on the piece.
  5. small Green River fish

    I've been going through my collection lately and fixing labels, etc. Just wondering if these are correct. I'm not sharp on my Green River fauna, or fish in general. These are the extent of my Green River collection, aside from a larger Knightia. Sorry, these indoor pics aren't great, I'm hoping someone with experience here will be able to tell what they're looking at, otherwise I could try for better pics outdoors next time we have sunlight. If there is any more info you can give me as well, such as which specific layer these probably came out of, I'd appreciate it. This label initially had 'Knightia' but that was crossed out and replaced by 'Fontenelle':
  6. Echinoid ?????

    Dear friends I wish all good health , I found this Echinoid before the lock down in Eocene area , rus formation , it is rounded , semi complete , it is 3 cm across , 3 cm high .what sp. could it be ?
  7. Is this mammal tooth a fossil ?

    Hey All, I found this tooth in some micro material from a creek in Castle Hayne NC. Was wondering if it was fossilized or not. Other material found were really worn small sharks teeth from the Eocene Castle Hayne Formation. Thanks.
  8. Eocene Era Marine Fossil Identification

    I hunt Eocene era Marine fossils in South Alabama. I have found a ton of thins but this one has me stumped. It's roughly 1½ inches long, ⅜ of an inch thick, and ⅜ of an inch tall (Sorry no metric ruler). On one edge, it appears to have small pointy teeth while the other side has some what of a channel. I've been able to identify most of what I have but I need some help on this one...
  9. I collected these beautiful ball-style fossils a few years ago from around the Hajar mountain area in Oman. I still don’t know what exactly they are. They were just lying in amongst the desert sand within the mountain (known for marine fossils from the Eocene to Miocene age) I’m guessing maybe they’re a type of solitary sponge or coral? I would be so grateful if someone could please help with the identification. I’ve taken as many photographs as possible, including some cross sections from broken fossils. The last 2 photographs show an additional species of fossil ball which I cannot identify either. The 2 new mystery ball fossils appear to have trapped other small marine fossils (nummulites) inside their fossilised bodies. Thank you so much for any information you can offer.

  12. I took a trip yesterday (Easter Sunday) morning to a few river sites in a neighboring county. The first spot I went to is a Pliocene exposure of zone 2 Yorktown Formation. While I found the normal culprits of teeth, mako's, hemi's and a small meg; it was the unexpected find that made this trip. While I have found fragments, I have not found anywhere near a complete echinoid there. Well Easter changed that, the Echinoid Bunny left me a good egg. I found a gorgeous complete Arbacia improcera. A rare Pliocene echinoid, my first. As found: after the first cleaning: second cleaning: third and final cleaning:
