  1. Fish Scales? Plus Shark Tooth

    Apologize for the poor quality pics but I struggled photographing these to show any detail I suspect they are fish scales but that is basically just a guess If anyone wants to take a shot at IDing them go for it The first two pictures are of the same fossil and the third picture is a different one-the second specimen was very difficult to photo cuz its basically a round disk with a raised hump in the middle Lastly if anyone could tell me what type of tooth this is that would be awesome so far its my most complete 'big' (meaning bigger than a fingernail lol) tooth
  2. I've just visited this hill directly north of the Trump National Golf Course (yes, the president owned a golf course in my city ) which I was told by a museum docent had fossil fish scales. Here's what I found which could possibly be fish scale fossils, but I need a full confirmation on this. Some notes -All three rocks are associated- they were all part of a giant piece of shale rock which was broken into pieces when I found it. -The "fish scales" are a more darker or orange brown. -I think I was unable to capture the best possible detail due to the absence of natural lighting which made details more camouflaged. -Each "fish scale" lie on only one layer, throwing off the possibility of it being a crystal. -The black stuff are dendrites or a similar type. -Found in the Palos Verdes Hills, directly north of the Trump National Golf Course. Rock 1 Rock 2 Rock 3 Is this my first ever fossil find or another bust?
  3. Scanning a small coprolite from Lyme Regis, UK, I noticed this little button-shaped inclusion. I was just wondering if anyone recognized what this might be. My only guess would be an otolith. Any ideas? I'm tempted to try to remove it to get a good look at the other side. Thanks for looking!
  4. Devonian Fish Scales?

    These were found yesterday in New Bloomfield Pa. Devonian. Someone suggested that they are fish scales. They look nothing like scales to me, lol. Can anyone confirm or dispute this?
  5. Hi, The following finds were all found on Bracklesham beach and have I hope been correctly identified, please let me know if not or how else will I learn I have noted the fossil bed where the designation is known however still trying to obtain a map/diagram of the assigned numbers. * Location: Bracklesham Bay, UK (SSSI designation) * Formation: Earnley * Period: Eocene 1. Scaphopoda (possibly Dentalium Constrictum) Feeding Tube * Bed: E3 - Cardita Bed * Size: 18mm in length 2.Coral Turbinola Phatra * Bed: E3 * Size: 7.5mm in length 3. Flint Urchin * Foreshore edge find * Size: 6cm 4. Goniopora Websteri coral * Bed: unknown designation (if there is one) but found in a rock filled gully during Spring Low Tide * Size: 4cm 5. Lepidotes Mantelli fish scales - this was another one of my 'hunch' finds and lived in my odds and sods tub til I got my magnifying lamp and confirmed it wasn't a man made enamel but Ganoin. * Bed E5 * Size: approx 11mm I will upload separately my Turtle, Sea Snake and Shark tooth finds
  6. Not sure if the second image is a scale?
  7. A Few Florida Finds

    I wanted to share a few of my finds from this year, but cannot create an album yet. These are from several different trips out to the Peace River. The lighting was not ideal, but I tried to get the photos to where you can see the finer details. If you have more info on the specific species these may belong to, please let me know. Fish Scales Fish Mouth Plates Turtle Spur Glyptodon Scutes A few teeth front and back - The one on the left may be a fish tooth, the others may be incisors but of what animal I am not sure. They all have a polished, glossy feel to them.
