  1. Trip to Big Brook

    Hi. I thought it would be a good day yesterday to go to Big Brook yesterday. It rained for almost two straight days and the temperature jumped up to 55-60 degrees. I thoughts with all the rain and warmer temperature I would be able to get some good finds yesterday. Yesterday the temperature dropped into the 30's and it snowed. The water was the highest I have ever seen it because of the rain. I could not even get to my favorite spot because it was under water. I found a couple decent spots to look around. Here are my finding. A couple things I have no idea what they are and something I think I know what they are. If anyone can help with the ID's that would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
  2. Is it a fossil??

    Hi guys, Today I was going trough some old boxes of not very well preserved fossils and I stumbled upon this rock which i found before a few years in a limestone deposit on a fossil beach here in Bulgaria. (Echinoids and ammonites are common for this site). When I found it I thought it really resembled a fish spine, so I took it just in case it really was a fish spine (although I doubted it). So can anybody tell me if this is really a fossil of some sort or is it just some natural rock markings. Best regards to everybody!!
  3. Fossil flower?

    Possibly a flower fossil? Found in Toowoomba, Qld Australia. Any ideas would be appreciated, thanks in advance
  4. Is this an Angustidens shark tooth?

    I compared my shark tooth to different shark teeth images on google and think that it came from an Angustidens shark? Am I correct? Thanks guys!
  5. Hi all, I have another fossil here for your inspection please. It seems to be a Spinosaurid partial neural spine but I cannot be sure. @Troodon @LordTrilobite
  6. Strange colour crab claw

    A couple of hours in on our fossil hunt at Glen Afric, I spotted another crab fossil! This had now been our 3rd crab of the day. We have not found a similar crab to this one. Any ideas or thoughts on why the colour is so strange?
  7. Novice needing advice!

    Hey Everyone! I've found these in Toowoomba, Qld Australia. I was wondering if anyone knew what they were and how I should go about cleaning them up. These are my first fossils Ive found, im so excited and don't want to damage them!
  8. Cave find

    I located this item in a cave where other items where located too. It’s about 1 1/4” long by about 3/4” wide. I am new to this forum and would like any guidance you may offer. It has been enjoyable looking through the posts. Thank you.
  9. What Fossil is this?

  11. Weird bone

    I found odd shaped bone or shell fragments, i don’t know what it is I just know it’s not a rock it was found at Kelly park in apopka fl
  12. While Hiking a creek in Upstate New York (Binghamton) I came across this unique find, looks different than anything I have came across before. Looks as if it's composed of several types of minerals along with different types of fossils. Seems to be very dense, with no loose or flaking material. I'm very interested in the main body where it looks as if the material is twisting and curling and gives it a fluid type of look. I am asking the community to please help me identify what this may be composed of and from what era. Thank you. - Dan
  13. Croc tooth? Aquia formation

    Hello all, first post on the forums despite joining awhile ago. Last winter I was fortunate enough to have some serious luck at Purse State Park in 2 consecutive trips while I was on break. Thanks to @Williamb55I was able to finally muster some motivation to seek some help to ID what I believe is a Crocodile tooth and Otodus from the Paleocene Epoch. Of course this could be inaccurate but I would love some insight into my find, comments and replies are appreciated. Best, DF
  14. What kind of tooth (big brook)

    Hi. Found this at big brook yesterday. Thought it was just a piece of a shark tooth at first. Now that it dried out it’s not smooth or flat like a shark tooth. It’s more circular and rough. Any feedback would be much appreciated. Thanks
  15. Small great white tooth?

    Hi. These three where found in St. Pete’s Florida on the beach. Is it possible the first one in top is a small great white? The serrations on both sides is causing me to think that. The middle tooth I think is hammerhead? based on the research I did. The bottom tooth I believe is sandbar based on how thin the root is and the length of the blade? Any feedback would be much appreciated. I’m still trying my best to ID these as accurately as possible. Thank you in advance!

  19. Shark Teeth from FL

    I have been using this website to help educate myself and identify theses teeth. I believe all teeth on the right of the penny are the sameness; Lemon Shark. I also believe that all the teeth are the same to the left of the penny. My initial thought was Copper Shark. After going through this website I was thinking Thresher Shark. Any help or confirmation with thes would be much appreciated. This is the link https://www.floridamuseum.ufl.edu/discover-fish/sharks/fossil/shark-tooth-id-guide/#q23
  20. ID help. Random Shark teeth from FL

  21. What is this?

    My friend gave me this earlier today and I have absolutely no idea what it is. Can someone help me out?
  22. What Are These Ammonites?

    I'm currently trying to identify the genus of some of my ammonite fossils? I believe the two small specimens are Hildoceras and Gonaitite and the large specimen is of the genus Cleoniceras. But I do not know for sure. Can someone confirm or correct me on this?
  23. Shark Teeth ID. Carcharhinus

    Hi. Me again. I feel like I post something everyday asking for help. I really have learned so much from everyone here the past month. So a big thank you. So I believe based on research and past post that the first group of teeth are bull shark because the location of the nutrient pore on the lingual side is below the bulge in the root. The second picture I believe is also carcharhinus but not bull because instead of a nutrient pore on the lingual side there is a transverse groove. So that leads me to the question what type of carcharhinus has a transverse groove? I hope on the right path in my thinking. Boy I hope so or this post will be embarrassing. Haha. Thank as always for any feedback! Mark
  24. Hemi confirmation ID

    Hi. I believe this is hemi. My confidence on identifying is not the greatest. Getting there. Learning more every day. Any feedback is much appreciated. Thanks Mark
  25. Hey guys. I am a new member and currently an 18-year-old freshman college student. I am currently going through basics but as a kid, I loved dinosaurs and prehistoric creatures. I recently have thought about changing my major from biology to paleontology. I am a fossil collector and hope to collect hundreds of examples of prehistoric life. As I said I'm a fossil collector but a novice at it. I know relatively what a given organism is but I want to know, if possible, the species. If they are completely unidentifiable, no worries. I might add that all of these fossils did not have locations of where they were found except the starfish which was found in Morocco. I'm making a log of all my fossils and want to know the genus of each individual one. I have linked a google drive folder with all the images of the ones I would like identified if possible. Feel free to message me with any questions or just to get to know me. I'm open to making friends with fellow lovers of life. Thanks. https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1m0QB8pmy-snZYujwb6Fy06flKsRxQK3E
