  1. Hello I am from Austria so Sry for my English. I have bought some fossils and want to ask some experts what they Think about it. The First is a spinosaurus tooth. What you Think about it, is he real and how much is it worth?
  2. Copper Shark from Stratford?

    This tooth was found at my trip to Stratford Hall in Montross, VA on December 2nd. I found it laying out in the open among some pebbles. It’s in great condition, but I had some trouble identifying it as it looks quite different from most of the teeth I have found. The roots look as if someone peelled open a banana, and the crown extends very high up the root. There seem to be some very worn serrations on the tooth as well. After some research, I believe it to most likely be from Carcharhinus brachyurus, or Copper/Bronze Whaler shark, although I’m still not sure. I’d really appreciate some input from more experienced collectors who have a better eye. Thanks, and Hoppe fossil hunting!
  3. Triceratops Jaw Section

    Hey TFF, I found this Triceratops fossil jaw section online and would really like to purchase it. Though, it looks like it had been found in many pieces and prepared okay. I think it would look great in my fossil collection which are mainly dinosaur material, but was wondering if it was worth purchasing because of its condition. What do you guys think? Thanks for your replies!
  4. I know I'm not the only one that doesn't live near good fossil deposits, which means that i'm not the only one that has to buy or trade fossils from time to time to build the collection. I thought it would be fun to have an ongoing thread to share our latest great score that we didn't personally find in nature, a thread to share your latest fossil purchase or trade. Let's see what you found at the local fossil show, online or anywhere else other than in the ground.
  5. My kids and I were jetskiiing not far off the coast of North Wildwood and stopped at an island called Champagne Island. As we walked the perimeter of the Island I noticed this (pictured below) in a few inched of water. I gave it to my cousin who is a marine biologist at Rowan University in Glassboro NJ and he let a bone specialist there study it. The bone specialist said it was from a 10-15,000 year old mammal most likely a sea-lion. Thats all the information I have on it and it presently sits on a shelf in my living room. So I came here to share my story and see what you guys think. The piece is about 7" long.
  6. Pneumatic Engraving Pen

    Hi everyone, I would like to buy a pneumatic pen to start preparing fossils but my budjet is limited, I saw the chicago cp710 or 9160. Does anyone have opinions or thoughts about it? Thanks
  7. Hi there, I'm new to the fossil forum, and was hoping I could get help in identifying this jaw. It was found in Marmarth, North Dakota in the Hell Creek Formation. I don't have any more specifics on location besides that. I hope the pictures are detailed enough, but if not, I can post more. I am thinking it has to be some kind of fish, but I am not completely sure. Any direction or help would be wonderful! Thank you so much!
  8. Bivalve?

    Hi, This is my first post and I'm very new to fossils and minerals but also very interested in learning, now that I've found this new interest. Last weekend I was hiking with a friend on a dinosaur footprint trail and found this. I thought it had an interesting shape. I'm guessing it's just bivalves attached to the rock, but would like some other opinions since I know very little about fossils. Thank you in advance
  9. I might have one this time!

    Fingers crossed, I think there's a real fossil in this mess! I accidentally chipped the part I think is a fossil, bone or shell maybe, with my tile nippers trying to chip away the bigger rocks in the conglomerate-- the nippers are for sherd crafts ONLY from now on! However, the pattern of lines in the part in question is as it was when I found it in the lower canal along the Delaware river near Pt. Pleasant, PA. My husband, King of Pareidolia, thinks it's a turtle. I'm not going to see things I can't hypothesize on, I'm here instead.
  10. Hey guys finally got a chance to finish the first print on the tracks Im casting. In theory they are Acrocanthrosaurus tracks and there are a total of 6 tracks (may be more buried). Anywho I got the original cast done then made a negative mold. Im now making positive casts of the initial track. Im still messing with the color I want but Im pretty close
  11. Molds? Of?

    I now understand that these are likely molds, but of what I don't know. I am learning a great deal, though, and am so glad to have found this place!
  12. Baby Gater skull fragment

    Here is the find we made in SC. I think It is a fragment of a baby alligator or croc. Found it on the beach in the surf. Any thoughts? And how rare are these little guys?
  13. I think I see a crinoid, but what else?

    I'm getting braver and will venture that there is at least one crinoid columnal mold preserved in this formation. I'm fairly certain, however, that the other two most prominent molds are not of a crinoid. How am I doing?
  14. I'm not sure if this is an impression or trace fossil, so educate me on the difference please, but it's definitely something. I enhanced the color only slightly so y'all can see it better.
  15. Unknown

    I have no idea what this could be, fossil or rock. It was found in the creek behind our house like most everything else I have posted, in Bucks County, Pa, not far from the Delaware river.
  16. Yorkshire Fossils

    Hello all! I'm planning to go to UK next year someday and find some fossils at the yorkshire coast areas. Any suggestions on what time to go next year for the best 'loot'? And, what tools should I prepare and bring there? Besides, what can I find besides ammonites?
  17. Abrassion tools

    I am a new member here and have been reading about fossil prep. I have an air scribe but am looking for other tools and techniques needed to prepare my finds. I have seen the abrasive techniques used in videos and reading here on the forum. My question is what should I be looking for in an air abrasion. What tools are needed and what kind of media is used?
  18. Peace River Sharks Tooth Questions

    I have a few quick questions in regards to this tooth (measures approximately 2" in overall length) which I found last week in the peace river 1. What shark does this belong to? My guess is megalodon. 2. Does this belong to a Juvenile shark, or would this have been a smaller tooth on an adult shark? Either way, taking this to the jewelers because it's my first large shark tooth find!
  19. Bird egg fossils? I'm a new member.

    Hello, I found these fossilized 'eggs' taped together at a pawn shop in Kalispell, Montana. I know nothing about them but they are really cool! Does anyone know what they are? The more oval one is about 2" long by 1.5" wide. The more round one is about 1-9/16" x 1-13/16". They were sliced in half when I found them. The one that looks slightly developed ha some missing 'yoke' around the center small circle but is close to fully intact. They are fascinating but I don't know much. I'm a newbie. Thank you for any help.
  20. Unidentified fossil bone

    I would like to have some help to identify this fossil. I know that it is fossilized, and I am pretty sure that it is a mammal femur, but I would like to find out what mammal and if it is for sure a femur. It was found in Northeast Oklahoma, and I am adding as many pics as I can with scale. So thanks for all the help that you can give.
  21. Fish in Rock like a Geode

    Sorry, another fossil from my dead acquaintance's estate. This is an interesting fish in a geode-like rock. Open it up and you can see the top and the bottom of the fish's image. The person who split open the rock did an excellent job. The seam is sharp and tight. To get to the fish inside: It is about 10½ millimeters centimeters long and 4¾ mm wide/tall at its widest point. I did just a little bit of magic in this picture to heighten the image. I made it a little bit darker and heightened contrast just a little. The rock from the outside looks like a sweet potato. In fact, the inside of the rock has a reddish, sweet-potato coloring though where the ghost image of the fish is, it is grayish brown. I don't know where this fish was found. A nice fish, well-preserved by my eye.
  22. New to me! any ideas?

    am I crazy to think this seems like it may be a fossilized shark tooth? it also has veins of blue/green running through parts in a ribbon type pattern. Nevada for location found
  23. Clay.

    So I see that some people stand their teeth upright by attaching some sort of clay to hold it and prevent it from falling over. I just want to know what kind of clay would be best for that. Thanks.
  24. Compounded shells, sand and rock

    Hello. Can anyone help me to identify these types of rocks fossil? It was found on Indian River Lagoon Stuart Florida. Thank you very much in advance for your time and help. Kindly, Stephanie
