  1. Bone or teeth?

    are these bones or teeth? they look similar to some Ive seen around. Found in Menlo Park, CA
  2. Is it a leaf?

    Here's another one from Cincinnati, do you think this is plant matter? Possibly a leaf? Thank you!
  3. Is this the fossil of a seed?

    I found it driving back from Kilbourne Hole in New Mexico I can’t remember exactly where, somewhere on the dirt back from the crater.
  4. Hey guys, I dont really know what this could be, maybe just rock, but the color, shape, texture made me think twice - specifically the curved smooth bottom, sharp sides that curve strangely and just the shape in general. At first glance i thought it looked like a meteorite because of the flow-line'esque texture it has in some parts and the bottom side was smooth with little holes with some thumb print 'ish indents, and its darn heavy. But then it also reminded me of some marine mammal and large reptile fossil bones I've seen on here while perusing so I thought I'd ask. Also because of some other things I have found, which I want to ask about as well but dont want to spam all at once. Actually I'll post two of the other things too Found in Menlo Park, California about ~12" inches in ground, maybe slightly deeper. Menlo Park is considered Pleistocene/Holocene alluvial but there have been cretaceous foraminifers found in the towns surrounding Menlo Park. And then there was the paleoparadoxia found during the excavation of the Stanford Linear Accelerator as well, which is about a mile away from me, and they are from the Miocene I believe. Also after reading the USGS geological map survey of my area it seems that theres out crops from every time period, mostly due to the gazillion faults in SF bay area. So Im not really sure what I'm living on. Anyways.. The second rock looks like it has a mouth and some teeth which I found interesting. The third looks like a shell on the one curved end, but also like a saurapelta armor plate I've seen in photos before. Appreciate any thoughts, and if it is rock, do you know what kind? Thanks for your time and feedback!
  5. Imprint id needed please

    I found this among hundreds of other random sea fossils (that i have not identified yet) on this piece. I would like to know what the flat imprint is of if anyone knows?
  6. Is this a fossil

    Found his fossil/Rock is a rock pile near Winton, QLD. It has distinct markings but I can't tell is if is a fossil, it looks a bit like a marine fossil.
  7. My son and I found both sides of this split rock on a steeply wooded slope in southwestern PA (near Wexford PA). I think it is a fossil but not certain. It looks like a segmented worm or possibly plant structure. If straightened out, it would measure 4-5 inches, depending on which surface. 0.25 inch wide. Looking for any information or ideas. First find in this area.
  8. Shell identification needed

    I found this in Ellsworth county Kansas. Can't find anything online resembling it. It is in matrix with other cretatious period shells, none of which have been preserved as well as this. The entire shell is exposed.
  9. Fossil id, rock id please

    Quartz? Tia.
  10. Possible vertebrae fossil?

    Hi any help in identifying this fossil I found or If someone could even tell me if this is a decent find found on the Swatara Creek In Hummelstown Pa
  11. Iron Hill Museum Fossil ID

    I recently took a trip to the Iron Hill Museum in Newark, Delaware. (Which has amazing displays by the way. Its small, but fascinating.) There, I bought a small bag of about 10 fossils. I knew what most of them were, but there are a few I am unsure of what they actually are. I was wondering if anyone on the Forum could help me. All I know is that all of the Fossils were found in either Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, or Pennsylvania. Unfortunately I will have to upload these each in separate posts as it won't let me upload more than 3.95 MB. (Yell at me all you want if you have found a way around it.) 1. This one I was told that this is some kind of bone fragment. 2. This is also another bone fragment. 3. I think this is a bone fragment. 4. I know this is a vertebra but I am not sure what kind. I am pretty sure it is marine. 5. This is some kind of tooth. 6. No idea.
  12. Iowa Trace Fossils???

    Hey all, I found this slab of rock in a Linn County, IA creek this spring and I'm not sure how these patterns might have formed. Are they trace fossils from something? Did they form for normal geological processes? It's hard to pin down age of rocks in a creek like this, but most of our exposures are Devonian or Silurian. Thanks!
  13. Short visit to Ladonia Fossil Park

    I spent less than an hour because it was to hot but I found the pice of vaculite and a small piece of bone.
  14. Lots of IDS needed

    I guys I have a large amount of unidentified fossils (40+). I was hoping you guys can Identify them for me. All were found in eastern NC (Aroura or Emerald Isle beach) Thanks, for any help. I have them numbered for easy reference. I also have them next to quarters and pennies for size reference. The quarter is 1 inch tall and wide and pennies are .75 inch tall and wide I can take more pics upon request 1.
  15. Fossil ID Help

    Hey everyone, I'm new to fossil hunting and I recently took my little brother fossil hunting for the first time. Here are a few fossils that we are unable to identify.
  16. Help me confirm this one?

    Hello! I work in a place that involves a lot of hiking along trails, and I've found myself tripping over fossils every day. Until now, all have been very clearly crinoids and brachiopods. This one threw me off a bit, and I was hoping to get some insight on what it might be! Also, I'll get more pictures by the end of tomorrow (different angles, scale, etc) - I snapped a quick pic and then promptly forgot it at work, oops. (And yes, I do have permission to keep fossils found there, but I intend to find something less common than crinoids and brachiopods for the owner's grandson) Location info: Northeast Ohio, summit county. Found partially buried along a trail, lots of brachiopods and crinoids in the area.
  17. Dear Fellow Fossil Fanatics, I just had a great day at Big Brook, found some shark teeth but also 3 specimens that I am not sure at all what to make of. Any insights would be awesome! Best, Huttner
  18. Iowa Mammal Teeth ID

    Hello, I'm a new member to the Fossil Forum, could someone please help me ID these teeth? I found the larger, blacker tooth this morning on a sandbar of a creek in Linn County, Iowa. My wife found the smaller tooth on the same little sandbar about a year ago. I have found several bison teeth in the many other locations I have walked up and down this river, but these two have been stumping me. These are the only teeth we have found so far that still have roots intact which leads me to believe that they did not travel very far in the creek. These may or may not be from the same animal, but two strange teeth from the same spot makes me wonder if that could be the case. The smaller one has a stylid, but even the small one is thicker than the bison teeth that I have. Two photos compare size to a modern bison jaw. Small tooth: Width: 26mm Thickness at top: 16mm Enamel height: 32mm Large tooth: Width:29mm Thickness at top: 27mm Enamel height: 14mm
  19. From Texas

    Hello I'm the newbie. My name is Charlotte. I am trying. Desperately to find someone in Texas that can I'd my fossils. Boy do I think I found the unfound.

With their tissue, like skin, bone , eyes? Please help me to know who to talk to. And or call. I'm positive I've got something historical. Just tried. To contact many different avenues to I'd but to no response or slow response I'm going crazy. Please help. Thank You , Charlotte.
  20. help with ID please

    hi all, looking for help with this fossil, found in the southern part of the Flinders Ranges, South Australia. Size is about the size of the last joint of your Thumb. Any help will be much appreciated
  21. Miocene fossil?

    Hello all: I'm sorry to be one of "those" newbies but I was fossil hunting today and I have absolutely no idea what, if anything, I've found. I pulled it out of a chunk of clay at the Calvert Cliffs State Park, so I guess this is from the Miocene. It's pretty hard but came out in two pieces (see pictures). It caught my eye because it's so perfectly round... It's probably something obvious to you experts but I don't have a clue. I tries image searching but nothing looks right... Thanks so much for your time and ideas!
  22. I hammered this free from a chunk of ironstone. Ironstone matrix. I thought it was completely round like a marble nut the more I inspected I see some traits that this is a designed specimen with a symmetrical pattern and some unique patterns. Any ideas?
  23. Marine Cretaceous fossil help ID

    Hello everyone! I found this fossil in Valencia, Spain. It's from the lower cretaceous but I cant be more accurate. I dont know what it is but I assume it's some kind of bivalve or gastropod but cant find the specie. I recorded a video and uploaded on youtube, hope u can see it well, if not let me know and I will try to show you better. Any help is appreciated, thanks.
  24. Possible permian insect wing?

    G'day, I was recently splitting some leftovers from the Belmont insect beds (Permian) from NSW, Australia and I found what appears to be an insect wing. Its preserved differently than the Glossopteris in the formation with a shiny surface (not visible in photos). But I thought it could also be half of a glossopteris leaf. So, any ideas? (I am referring to the dark shape just above the ruler)
