  1. Hi everyone, I was recently offered this Giganotosaurus tooth. I was wondering if there was a way to distinguish it from carcharodontosaurus teeth from the kem kem beds? Or if anyone can share there opinion on this one, thank you.
  2. It’s around 1 cm in length
  3. fossil id please :)

    Hey! I would really appreciate it if you could help me id this fossil - I believe it is a shark tooth, but I'm not too sure as I am completely new to this. It is 27mm long. Would you be able to tell me what class/family/genus/time period it's from? Thanks in advance!
  4. This 23-34 Million year old Fossil coral from Tampa Bay might be a Desmophyllum, but seems to either be another type or possibly a Desmophyllum going through a reproductive split. Could anyone confirm the ID and if it's going thought a reproductive split. It's a small coralite around 1 cm.
  5. New member fossil ID

    Hello Everyone, I am a new member on fossil forum! However, I am not new to paleontology. I am 13 and have been obsessed with fossils since before I could walk. I have two fossils I need identified, the first one is a jawbone I bought at a sale from a private collector. I recognize that it is probably not valuable, but I would like it identified. The man who sold it (he was a naturalist) identified it as a herbivorous lizard's partial mandible, anybody able to shed some light on it? The other fossil is what I presume to be a footprint cast, I have had two geologists look at it and they can't find anything to disprove the fact that it might be a very small cast of a Theropod footprint! I found it in some yard rocks (like most of my finds) and it doesn't seem to be your typical Grallator. This is either an interesting find or the pareidolia hoax of the century! If anyone can prove/disprove it, let me know. Thanks! (I'm going to reply with pictures of the jaw since they exceed 3.95)
  6. ID Assistance

    I have about two buckets of fossils that I collected from yard in the past month. Here is a picture of some items I cleaned up today. Any assistance is appreciated. One that I want to get to this weekend. Gotta wait and have my son help me move it.
  7. Hello TFF, I purchased this relatively inexpensive specimen at Mineralfest this past fall, and I was wondering if anyone could tell me more about it. The seller informed me it could possibly be from Madagascar, but was transparent in admitting that she couldn't confirm for sure. It was with other pieces of petrified wood that were brown, but I was drawn to this one due to the red hues. I think it's agatized, and it looks "glassy," although there are too many impurities to shine a cell phone light through it. One side is polished, and I put water on the rougher backside to show more of the details in the coloration. When I went to research the process of identifying tree species from petrified wood, I came across high powered microscopes that could identify structures on a cellular level. I don't have access to that sort of technology, but I was wondering if anyone has any guesses as to what the species could be, how old it might be, what it might be made of, or any other information that could be gathered from looking at the specimen. I'm always curious about what the prehistoric "story" could be behind a fossil, or anything related to the unique biology of ancient life. Thank you for your time, and your knowledge is greatly appreciated!
  8. Help me ID a New Mexico fossil

    I found this recently in Rio Rancho New Mexico. It looks a bit like a coprolite, or maybe an encased ? ammonite type shell. The top part looks very different than the base that has fossils visible. I am not sure if they just melded together or are part of the same thing. Can I tumble it? Or should I cut it? What would you do? Help me ID it please. My pics are too big, so I will upload more as comments. Thank you Leesaa
  9. Identification help please

    Hello Forum, This is my first post since joining the Forum. I may need a little grace if I am not spot on regarding protocol or formatting. I found this unknown fossil in SW Florida while looking for shark teeth in the ocean. I tried to capture the "pebble like" texture of the surface. I have not come across a fossil with this type of feel to it. I appreciate any help you can give me.
  10. Triassic Wing Ribs or Sedimentary Trace?

    Found this piece on a walk near a Triassic outcrop in Pennsylvania, has a pretty exact visual similiarity to the wing rib of a Triassic reptile but is likely just some form of sedimentary trace. It would be great to get some more opinions on this piece to see if its worth holding onto or I would label it to be definitely sedimentary and rid of it, which I feel is the case.
  11. Fossil or just a rock?

    Hey all, I was hunting for sharks teeth this morning and found this. Is it a fossil or just a rock? My initial inclination is just a rock, but figured the shape was worth an ask. Thanks in advance!
  12. im pretty sure this is some kind of something that lived once. my husband thinks im crazy and says its just a big piece of flint but i see more then just flint what do yall think? maybe a whale or something lie that it looks like there might be a blow hole on top back view
  13. ANTHOZOA? Looks like an anemone to me

    Found this while digging in my backyard in Southern California. More specifically, Cerritos, which is just a few miles north east of Long Beach. I uncovered a whole layer of interesting rocks, a huge chunk of breccia, shale, sandstone, and even a ~2 in. long quartz, but this one actually looks like a coral to me. I can add close ups if necessary.
  14. I am clueless

  15. Ammonoid ID

    hi all, anyone know the specific attribution of this genus type or direct to any science-based paper? Macrocephalites? mid-Jurassic. ?
  16. Found in Louisville KY

    My 8 year old grandson found this in his backyard in Louisville KY
  17. Likely Herbivore Molar?

    Found in Eastern Montana outside Terry, Montana in the badlands. Thinking some type of herbivore. Please help Identify. Thanks!
  18. Came across this tooth labeled as an abelisaurus belonging to chinanisaurus barbaricus from the Maastrichtian supposedly found in the phosphate mines of the Ouled Abdoun basin. Looks pretty thick to be abelisaurus and comparable to an extent to some carcharodontosaurus teeth. Is there a way tell the difference or will there need to be more specifics involved.
  19. Not another dinosaur egg....

    I found this in Nyack, NY near the water, close to where fossils have been discovered before. It looks as though it has some of the characteristics often discussed in this forum in regards to fossilized eg gs. Please forgive me if this is another river stone...
  20. When I saw it in the screen, I honestly thought it was just an acorn or something, but I did the sound check and sure enough, it's got that bone bell sound. Not really sure about this one, any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Location: Big Brook in NJ Date Found: August 2020
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. 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
