  4. Kaliningrad fossils

    Hello Dear Friends! This is my first topic on this forum. Hooray! I work in museum and sometimes go on the Kaliningrad beach of Baltic sea and search some fossils. I'am not paleontologist and i need help to definition of them. THe last time i found some algae but i'am not sure. Place was in a few meters from cliff on beach. p.s. can i add my other find in this topic or should create new?
  5. Large chunk of bone from desert

    Hello, I found this chunk of bone on a cliff on a beach in Ruwais, Abu Dhabi, UAE (United Arab Emirates). I know that identifying chunks of bone is difficult, but I thought that by it's size, weird vein markings? (fig.1), and sevreal holes running through the middle (fig. 2 and 3), that this would be more easily identified. I am thinking it might have belonged to some type of elephant. (Miocene in age)
  6. Oil and Fossils

    I have a quick question. Is Oil a fossil? It is dark like some fossils and plant material can turn black. It is also called a fossil fuel and oil places are near areas with fossils.
  7. Bone, rock or poo?

    This was found in Stratford Hall, VA. Most likely a rock but would like a second opinion
  8. Morgantown Ferns

    Could someone put a name to the type of fern in this fossil? Found in Morgantown WV
  9. Here is a jaw with two teeth. The entire length of the jaw is about 6.25 inches. The teeth are about 11/16 and 12/16 long and the largest about 9/16 wide at the widest place. They were found on a Florida beach near Fort Pierce. Don't know what the animal would be. Thanks for all the great help.
  10. Partial lower jaw from a mammal

    Hello there, I recently acquired this fossil, which seemed to me a partial lower jaw from a mammal. Can anyone help identify this particular fossil? Also, this mammal appeared to have an impacted third molar just like humans!!
  11. What do I have here??

    Hey everyone!! I ran across something that was given to me many years ago when I was a child, and am interested in learning more about it. It has a paper with it stating what it is supposed to be, but I'm not 100% sure it's accurate either. Thanks for any help that can be given!!
  12. Caudal Vertebra

    what dinosaur?
  13. So I have this rock.....

    I use to find crinoid fossils by the hundreds when i was a kid, though I thought that they were worm fossils. No such thing as Google or even home computers then. I found this fossil about a year ago and if it is truly a crinoid, it is without a doubt the largest that I have seen.
  14. My Fossil seller show 3 photo of his fossil book but he don't tell what name of this book. I want to know what is this book. Please
  15. Can you help ID this fossil

    Can you help identify this fossil. It has shell material on it that is iridescent pink and what looks like suture lines maybe on the surfaces. Found in an area where there is baculite and ammonite nearby. Found one other piece as well. Internally it doesn’t look like any other piece of ammonite I have found before.
  16. Trilobites from Wales please ID

    Just won this at auction was really inexpensive out the blue buy an Help with id would be great thanks says there from wales
  17. I know there are worn or broken but would like any information on them. They are fairly large. I think the two white ones might be from the same animal or age, while the black one is very dense and was possibly much bigger than the remaining piece, but I don't know. They came from a beach near Fort Pierce Florida. You can see the rule for scale. Thanks for any thoughts.
  18. Hi all just bought this Silurian Eurypterid Balteurypterus head cephalon wasn’t overly expensive thought it looked cool and it’s from a trusted seller just wanted everyone’s opinion on it
  19. Seed Cone

    From the album Plants of the Lewellyn Formation

    Early Conifer Fruit/Seed Body about 4" long Pennsylvanian Age (308-300 MY) Lewellyn Formation Columbia County, PA The impression is coated in white iron oxide left from original plant material during fossilization.
  20. Ammonite Discovery

    So, a long time ago, I bought a fossil Ammonite at an antique store in Post Falls, Idaho. I posted it here, and one user said it was mostly carved. Heres a picture of when I bought it. Two days ago, I was at a school volunteering for aftercare. I was able to show the kids the fossils I had, including the mostly carved Ammonite. While showing the Ammonite fossil, I realized something. The parts that were mostly carved were in sandstone. When I got home, I was thinking. Using mathematics, I was able to determine that the rest of the Ammonite was UNDER the carved sandstone. Very carefully, I removed the sandstone with a brush. My theory was correct. There WAS more of the Ammonite under the carved sandstone. It looked mostly carved before, but now, it looks about 70% uncarved. I will attach a picture of after the sandstone was taken away in a second, I need to get it to the right file size. Sorry to keep you all in suspense. Jared
  21. Check me on shark tooth id

    Hi all. I'm pretty sure these are GW teeth. I don't see any evidence of a bourlette. The only think troubling me is the root. I can't remember seeing GW teeth from Aurora or GMR (where these are from) with this type of curved root. Maybe transitional? Thanks for you time.
  22. We have found thousands of these little button shaped fossils all in one area. They range in size from .5cm to 2cm but most are right at about 1.5cm. Most of them are nearly round, about .5cm thick in the middle, but taper to the edge, very much like a curved button or a pillow. On the outer surface most look just like overlapping layers, but when broken open across the middle they have a very fine spiral structure. I would very much like to identify them.
  23. Got this delivered today and was wanting a little help on an ID thanks In advance guys
  24. Fossil ID help

    I found this stone outside my house and have never seen one like this before. Could it be a fossil of some kind? I live in oregon but this could have been brought from somewhere else by the previous owners if the house. Any help is much appreciated!
  25. Good afternoon all! I'm trying to plan a fossil hunting trip with my daughters before the winter fully sets. I'm a trained Biologist, but new to the area. Can anyone suggest a nice location to fossil hunt in eastern Ontario or Quebec? Thanks everyone! Manuel
