  1. Where it would seem like the jawline, has lines like the circular insect/worm, but towards the back the ridges patter turns into a round bumps pattern, and also turning the fossil around there is a hole that would look like where the spine would be. otherwise it is just a mashup is sea bugs and shells. Not sure where this was found, probably in the PA Delaware river.
  2. Dromaeosaur claw?

    Hey guys, I have had this claw in my collection for a few months now, I was told that this was a dromaeosaur claw. I wanted to get it looked at by the forum since I’m still just an amateur when it comes to fossils. Was hoping to get some thoughts on it. Thanks!
  3. Huge unidentified tooth

    Ok so i have this tooth for years now.. My dad dug it out in coal mine in Bosnia, and i would really like to know from what kind of animal is it.. i was pointed to this forum so here it is.. i hope for some interesting comments..
  4. Hey guys, I saw this shown as a “raptor”/dromaeosaur claw. What do you guys think? Is it dromaeosaurid? Is it a dinosaur claw?
  5. Quick meg id

    Appreciate it guys, I have a feeling its a chub?
  6. hi everyone this is matt again today in the creek I found this fossil with a lot of different brachiopods in it here is a photo
  7. Fossil ID #3

    This long, black, and concave fossil looks like a fin, flipper, or something to that magnitude because of how smooth and dynamic it looks and feels. Any suggestions for this?
  8. Fossil ID #2

    This looks like the half of a Meg tooth that has lost all of its enamel. I haven't seen one like this before, but it has all of the characteristics of a meg tooth. Can anyone confirm or debunk this?
  9. Hey guys, I saw this listed as a dinosaur egg with developing dinosaur. I have heard that dinosaur eggs with developing dinosaurs are extremely expensive so I am a little skeptical about this. Any thoughts on it?
  10. Missouri Mineral/Fossil ID

    Found in Jackson County Missouri (I didn't find it myself, but I can most likely get more info on location it was found.) I do believe it was found in a dirt road alley. Long dark grey and brown striations, that cannot be scratched with my nail. Then on one side in a few large chunks, an orange/brown (rust colored) residue, that can be scratched off. I thought my pictures were going to look much better than this. So I can get better pictures ASAP if need be. Let me know any other information I need to provide. Thank you for looking! Hope everyone is safe and healthy out there!
  11. Hey all, Looking for some help on this claw fossil from China. Unfortunately the seller does not know what formation it’s from, they just say Northeastern China. Claw is 1cm x 0.5cm x 0.3cm
  12. hi everyone this is matthew again today in the creek I found another bivalve fossil I think the name for it is called Gramatodon hamiltoniae but I am not sure about that so I don't what kind it is here are 2 photos
  13. Fossil Bone From Calvert Cliffs 5/27

    I hope everyone is doing well. Today we went to a private beach to finally do some fossil hunting and get some exercise at Calvert Cliffs. My youngest son found this fossilized bone. He was super excited. We are hoping we can get an idea of what type of bone it is. It is our first intact fossilized bone. Thanks.
  14. Hi everyone this is matt again guess what today in the creek I found some great brachiopod fossils here is 3 photos
  15. Triceratops beak

    Any thoughts on this? Would be a nice, unusual piece for my collection if it's as described. Triceratops beak. Hell Creek. Garfield County. Montana. Weight: 0.255 kg Length: 13cm Width: 16cm Depth 3cm Now, it does resemble one that I saw for sale elsewhere googling (which has sold out) but, given it's quite a pricey piece. I figure it best to double check on here to see if it's as described. If it is, it's one I'd definitely be ordering. Thanks very much.
  16. 2020 fossils

    I have not been active much in the past 6 months but I have not stopped digging. I probably have too many pictures to put in this one post so I’ll split them up. The embarrassing part of this is if actually took me 15 minutes to figure out how to post again.
  17. Meg tooth?

    Hi was wondering if this was a meg.
  18. hi everyone this is matt again today in the creek I found some neat brachiopods and bivalves fossils here are some photos
  19. Is this anything special?

    I found this fossil while collecting rocks for a landscaping project. It was in Gasconade County Missouri along the Dry Fork Creek (if that helps at all). I washoping to go back and look for more fossils or more of this fossil in the fall when the critters go away again.
  20. St.Clair fern ID

    Hello everyone, I received this Carboniferous fern fossil along with many others from @Fossildude19 earlier this week. The largest one in the picture caught my eye due to the interesting shape of the pinnules, they are quite elongated and the ones lower down on the pinna are somewhat spiky at the base. I tried doing some research but was unable to find any ferns that had these structures. Any help is appreciated. Thank you very much, Misha
  21. Horn/claw/Tusk lot ID

    I have posted this pic on another thread but still would love any info about it. I have the opportunity to get this at a pretty low price. I am not experienced enough but it seems like these can be some really great dinosaur claw/horn/tusk fossils but I have no experience at all with dino fossils. If someone can help with the nautilus will help aswell if I want to ultimately purchase this lot. Sorry to have been asking a lot of IDs lately! I appreciate anything!
  22. Devonian fossil ID

    So, funny things happen. When my parents bought the house we were in we found this limestone plate of brachiopod imprints in the rock garden. Not only until 16 years later after I became interested in fossils, I realized our front rock section in the front of our house is the same limestone full of fossils. There a few a good pieces and one of them I opened up the layers and found a bunch of imprints. Almost all of them either look like brachiopod impressions or fossilized brachiopods...but there is this one I find here and there that intrigues me. No idea what it could be. So I also drew a sketch of it as its hard to make out. I do know that the rock is limestone and most likely Devonian.
  23. Any info on this .....mushroom?

    I found this in my garden when I was digging out an invasive weed. I was keeping some interesting stones in a separate pile to add to stone edging I have around a garden bed. I saw it, and even covered in soil, it looked interesting. I removed some dirt and saw it was really lovely. At first I thought it would be porcelain. After I removed more dirt I realized that it isn’t. Both sides are truly beautiful. It looks like a mushroom to me - the detail is amazing! I don’t know anything about things like this but came across your website as I was trying to find out more about my find. Any help and advice you can give would be very much appreciated. Thank you.
  24. Hey guys, I saw this listed as a ornithopod footprint. Do you guys think it’s real? Also what dinosaur could it be? Thanks!
  25. Hi folks, Need some help with this fossil being advertised as a Tarbosaurus claw. Seller says it's from Mongolia (doesn't know formation) and that it is about 1 inch in length. Seller provided no other useful information so my apologies if this isn't very descriptive. If it is from Mongolia I would think that it would be theropod indet? Would appreciate some input on it!
