  1. Fossil ID

    I found what I assume to be a fossil or trace fossil, but I have no idea what it is. Found this on a bed of other rocks on the bank of a creek in south-central Kentucky. I'm sorry the measurements are in imperial, I could not find a metric ruler.
  2. My daughter found this at a beach in South Carolina USA . The ruler is in inches that is all I had. Please help us figure out what this is.
  3. Fossil ID? Found in central NJ

    Hello all, I've been lurking here for about a month. I found something I can't identify for sure... I was told it looks like a fossilized turtle shell? I was wondering if anyone could provide me with any specifics.. thank you
  4. Vertebra found in Savannah (shark tooth island)

    I found this on shark tooth island in Savannah Georgia any idea as to what mammal it could belong to?

  6. Big Brook finds- need ID

    Hello! We were at Big Brook today and my son found this. Not sure what it is (if anything) and I cannot find any thing similar on the Big Brook websites. We also found some teeth and what might be a hadrosaur tooth fragment (second image). Can anyone confirm the hadrosaur tooth?
  7. Big rock covered with round nodules?

    Ran across this rock on the Brazos River near College Station, Texas. Covered with round nodules. Dimensions are about three feet by two feet by 18 inches. Any ideas what it is?

  10. Fossil ID from NJ: Chunk of Bone

    This piece was found this past weekend near Big Brook in New Jersey(Cretaceous Period). Need help identifying. Was told possible sea turtle or mosasaur piece?? Help and opinions open. Can also take additional pictures if need be! Second group of pics after it dried out a little bit.. Thanks in advance
  11. Halp! Wut IS it?!

    Greetings all! I found this in Southwestern PA in my backyard lying on the sun-scorched grass. Perhaps someone threw it at me, I thought. Should I throw it back? It measures about 7.5 cm long by 4.5 wide and is 3.25 thick.
  12. Beach Find from Portugal

    Hello from Portugal! A 100% layman here. Not even sure if this is in fact a fossil, but am very intrigued by its shape. Seems partially fossilized - the sides are stoney and symmetrically flanking what appears to be a fragment of some form of segmented exoskeleton (?) which seems quite hard and strong despite its flakey appearance. I found it in the Algarve, at Galé Beach / Praia de Galé in Albufeira, Portugal. Have you seen similar finds? So interested in hearing your thoughts! PS I tried to provide useful photos, definitely let me know if I can do better to enhance the inspection!
  13. Help with ID

    I picked this up at Salamonie State Park in Huntington County, IN. Someone suggested it might be an icno fossil? 4.5 cm x 1.5 cm. Thx!
  14. Unidentified Teeth!

    I need help identifying these teeth! If anyone could help that would be great! We are in broadwater county in Montana if that can help at all in identifying them.
  15. Another trace fossil... probably.?

    I'm not too hopeful about this one. But still a cool rock.
  16. Mystery Cretaceous Tooth New Jersey NJ

    Hello everyone, found this mysterious tooth in a cretaceous stream in New Jersey. Haven't come across any similar or anything I can really compare it to, plus its kinda worn. Which doesn't help but the leaf-like shape alone is very interesting, hopefully this one can be figured out.
  17. Found at the beach in South sweden

    I have no guess as to what this could be. A fossil or another sneaky rock I tried google, but I don’t even know what to type in Thank you for your patience and help!
  18. Tooth?

    Hello! I found this pretty little thing at the beach today. It seems to be a tooth of some sort. It’s about 4 cm long and 2,5 cm wide. Would love any feedback I could get on what it might have belonged to. Unfortunately it’s very frail and broke as I brought it home, but I tried to piece it together for the photos. The first two photos are taken with microscope 200x enlargement. thank you for taking the time to look at it!
  19. Tooth from Post Oak Creek, TX

    I thought this was a sharks tooth but now I’m having second guesses.
  20. Bone Fragment From Post Oak Creek, TX

    Can anyone help me identify this bone fragment ? It’s from Sherman, TX at Post Oak Creek. It’s drying right now from being in the stream. Is it fossilized ? Modern ? Bison ? Cow?
  21. I found this last year in north-central New York. It is from the Ordovician whetstone gulf formation and is about 1cm wide. I’m thinking it may be a crinoid calyx base but I may be wrong. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  22. Hi, Looking for identification. It is the first hunt in a long time, and the kids and I were searching for shark teeth along the Calvert Cliff formation in Maryland. We found what we believe is a whale rib, but wanted to get some expert eyes on it. It is approximately 10” by 4” and 2” thick. It is dense weighing about 2 1/2 pounds. Almost has a “metal” fell to it. The shape just looks too unique to be a rock. We found it near a fresh fall section. What do you think it is?
  23. Today on a hunt in the lower devonian of new york, I found on of the most unusual piece and I can't decide if its bryzoan or possible placoderm.
  24. Plattsburgh Ordovician fossil

    A month or so ago I found these while trout fishing in a creek in the lower Champlain valley. I have no idea what they are, so any info would be very helpful. They were from Ordovician rock that was pretty barren except for a few brachiopods.
  25. Possible crab fossil/Fossil ID

    While rock hunting out on our local river the other day for jasper, agate, concretions, and petrified wood; my little brother came across a fossil that we believe to be a crab shell. I am quite the amateur when it comes to fossils but hope to increase my knowledge as I go along. If anyone can identify the species or anything else about this specimen it would be greatly appreciated. Our area is Northern Oregon if that helps narrow anything down. UPDATE: After a lot more research, I believe it may be a Macroacaena, but not 100% sure.
