  1. Pretty shells

    I know brachipod and bivalves are common and many people often overlook them, but I figured i'd share some of mine i found this past month that I enjoy. A lot of them take on a white or orange color. 1 Has some bryozoans as well I believe.
  2. Big Brook find....bone?

    This is a Big Brook, NJ find in Feb. 2019. I'm new and still trying to figure out fossil from non-fossil. I thought this looked like a piece of bone.
  3. I´m certain that the fossil is real though im not sure of what degree of restoration that is done on the fossil. And im wondering if it looks like its covered in shoepolish or something? its kind of shiny in a unnatural way it seems Thanks!
  4. So not too long ago, I acquired a Protoceratops tooth from a German fossil gallery. And I have been looking for more fossils of the species for comparison both in price-range and rarity, but cannot seem to find any other protoceratops fossils anywhere. Does anyone know if these teeth are ever sold online? And have I perhaps made a heck of a buy? I'm not sure if the fossils from the Gobi Desert are rare or just hard to come by, unless you live in Asia. Any information would be appreciated, thanks! (Will put up some pictures of the tooth when I get home later)
  5. My dad actually found this a few years ago in our driveway and thought I'd know what it was so he brought it to me. Pretty sure our limestone gravel came from an Indiana quarry. Haven't really been able to figure out what it is. Some of the grooving looks like it could be a clam but the things that kinda resemble teeth are throwing me off a bit. Anyone think they could help me out?
  6. Sometime ago, I acquired an ichthyosaur skull that was poorly prepped. It had been roughly grinded and had lost much of its surface details. This is unlike the Holzmaden-style ichthyosaurs that were professionally prepped from the beginning, resulting in a beautiful fossil with scleral eye rings and full teeth etc. It's the reason collectors get unprepped Keichousaurus and send them to professional preppers, with the resultant Keichousaurus being more detailed than the ones you see from the Chinese market. This guy here is as flat as a pancake and so it would take delicate work to remove the hard matrix without damaging what bones still remain. Thankfully, @steelhead9 was up to the task of prepping him further. There is no restoration here. I'd say he has done one heck of a job.
  7. Rock or Fossil

    I found this guy in a dry creek bed in Putnam County Indiana. 2 of the sides are kinda flat but have the cracks on them.
  8. So while I was at the beautfiul Dinopark Altmühltal I found there a complete history of ALL Archeopterxs that where ever found. All where found in central Bavaria Enjoy The very first found (No number, so let's call it zero) was actually just a feather. To sum it up: 13 fossils found + the feather 1 lost in Germany (Number 3) 1 in Wyoming/USA (Number 10) 1 in UK (Number 1) 1 in Netherlands (Number 4) 9 in Germany + the feather I hope you can read everything.
  9. Clacton find

    Hi, this is a find from high up the beach in the dry sand found 50m east from Clacton pier, I dont think its bone or ivory, it was in two pieces when found so I stuck them together, a lot of material from the Pleistocene and before found in this location due to the beach recharge, Bison horn?, any help with a possible ID would be great, many thanks.
  10. I found a couple pieces of what I think to be Dinosaur Bones and possibly a scute from my Uncle's property a while back in Canon City, CO. Canon City is known for Late Jurassic dinosaurs. I'm definitely not an expert, but it looks like I possibly found an Ankylosaurus scute? Can someone tell me anything about these bones? One of the bones even looks like it has bite marks or claw marks. Not sure....I could be wrong. Any info would help, thanks!
  11. petrified finger

    found in meridian mississippi this rock has every characteristic of a finger even what appears to be veins and finger prints
  12. Found this amongst some rocks and Agatized Coral at Dunedin Causeway in FL. Can anyone confirm that it's actually a fossil? And not just a modern cement mixer or something?! Pretty sure it is a fossil! Thanks
  13. Hey friends, hope you're all having a great week. Here is a recent purchase of mine, a piece of Baltic Amber with a nicely preserved spider (Araneae sp.), leaf and Midge. Really loved how this looked and couldn't resist. Eocene period 35–50 million years. Dimensions are 20×13×6 mm. Thanks for looking
  14. Hello i have found this fossil in a stone pit in Germany Hannover and don t now what this is it is 1cm large .
  15. Whale Phalanx

    From the album Calvert Cliffs

    Baleen Whale Phalanx Bone Parvorder Mysticeti Miocene Virginia
  16. Turtle (?) Scapula

    From the album Calvert Cliffs

    Scapula found on the beach at cliff base. I can't find anything in the fossil field guides, but a comparison of scapula bones from extant animals shows a close match between this and a turtle's scapula. Miocene Calvert Group Virginia
  17. Ecphora Snail

    From the album Virginia Miocene

    Ecphora sp. Miocene Choptank Formation Virginia
  18. Bone or Antler?

    Hello, I was just traveling for a while and I was in the Rocha Department of Uruguay an area north east of Montevideo on the coast. I was walking along the severe hightide line of the shore just in front of a formation of a large sand dune area. I came across this what I think to be bone but potentially an antler. Uruguay was home to many Miocene Mammals and other fauna. Any ideas what this may be from from? Hard and heavy stone sounding when tapped. Marrow fossilized within perhaps. Any help is much appreciated! Patrick
  19. Route 66

    I am planning a trip in April from California to Texas on Route 66. I would like to know if there are any recommendations for collecting fossils or general rock hounding along this trip. Any suggestions, recommendations, or "don't miss" advice would be greatly appreciated.
  20. Identification?

    Need help identifying, don't know much about it, looks like bone, but the front pattern is interesting.
  21. Fossil IDs (if possible)

    I like collecting fossils, but I usually am not sure what my finds are. Please, could you help me identify these fossils? I noted down some possibilities down below. 1 - could be a late Albian ammonite from central Serbia, but I am not entirely sure. Acquired in Serbia. 2 - Found at Southerndown, Wales. Could it be a tree root or something in the region of that? It has a cross-hatched pattern if you look closely. 3 & 4 - A shell I found at Penarth, Wales but I am not entirely sure what it is called. 5 - A bone I found in the mud at Tites Point, Severn, Gloucestershire. maybe a birds? 6 - Some shells I found in mudstone at Charmouth, England. Was found in the same stone as 7. 7 - wood I found at Charmouth? It was very crumbly and delicate. 8 - A Trilobite fragment possibly, Llanfawr quarries, Wales. 9 - A bivalve I found in Southerndown. Not sure what it is though.
  22. hell creek micro jaw

    i have found quite a few micro jaws from the hell creek in the past like lizard and fish jaws, however i recently went through some old finds and noticed a small jaw, and i have absolutely no idea what it might be. it doesnt look like fish or lizard to me. the length of the jaw is about 14mm.

  23. Pleistocene Tooth , What is it?

    Tooth of Unknown animal from Pleistocene deposits of Cyprus. I thought it was the tooth of the extant species of dwarf elephant. What is your opinion?
  24. What is this?

    Found this years ago in Western New York creek bed. Any ideas what it is? Thanks for your input!
  25. Theoretical question

    Okay, say you are in a special area and in that area there are numerous fossils. The local museum and collectors have numerous specimens in their collections but you are visiting and find something awesome! You contact the local museum, let them know you had found something and let the property owner know. You allow the museum to know you are more than willing to help if they will allow you to assist them in their retrieval efforts. What is the likelihood they will contact the finder, and what is the likelihood they will allow you to help? They do need volunteers ...
