  1. Shark teeth in Israel

    Hello! is it possible to find shark teeth fossils in Israel from oligocene-Pliocene?
  2. Does anyone have experience selling fossils on eBay? I wanted to try selling my overflow and created two listing. Both were rejected because, if I understand it correctly, there were words "turtle shell" in the description. See the text of the email I got from eBay below. I called customer service and explained that we are talking fossils, fossils that are millions of years old. They would not budge, so I escalated the issue and now awaiting for someone to contact me. Some of your listings haven’t followed our Animals, Plants, and Wildlife policy. In this email, we're including some policy information to help you with your future listings. We also had to take the following actions: - Listings that didn't follow eBay guidelines have been removed. A list of removed item(s) is available further down in this email. - We have credited all associated fees except for the final value fee for your listing(s). You may list plastic, glass, or other man-made items with a "tortoise shell" design if you state clearly in your listing what the item is and that it isn't made from real tortoise or turtle shell. Due to state and federal regulations, items made from turtles or tortoises that are considered endangered by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service aren't allowed on eBay. In your listing, it is required that you include the turtle species from which your item is made. Species that are protected by law aren’t allowed. For more information on this policy, go to: http://pages.ebay.com/help/policies/wildlife.html You listed an item made from tortoise/turtle but you did not identify the species. We appreciate that you have chosen to utilize our site and, if you choose to relist, the specific species of turtle/tortoise must be listed in the description. If you are unaware of what specific species of tortoise this is, or if it is a species that is endangered or threatened, we ask that you please not relist the item on our site. Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with this information and be sure that your current and future listings, including any items that are relisted automatically, follow these guidelines. If they don’t, they'll be removed and your fees may not be refunded. It could also result in additional actions, including loss of buying and selling privileges on eBay.
  3. score-thocone nautiloid

    While at the ABQ Gem and Mineral show on Sunday, I spotted this cool little Nautiloid... ...I could not help myself. The information: Does anyone recognize the matrix/fossils and perhaps some guidance on literature? Thanks for your help.
  4. My first question...

    Hello, I bought this "fossil" ? but I do not have any idea of what it could be...can you help me? Dimension are about 40 cm x 20 cm and the ball is about 4 cm in diameter Thanks in advance
  5. More bits and pieces from GMR

    As we all know, GMR is good for random chunks of things. I found these 2 yesterday. The first i thought was tusk. The second I picked up because I thought it was a split whale tooth but then I got home and saw faint lines and rings. The third looked like enamel but I can't match it to anything. Thanks all!
  6. T-Rex jackpot?!

    I saw this tooth online for very cheap. The seller dosnt have a clue on what it is and the location. Could it be THE T-Rex? Or Carcharodontosaurus... It is 4 cm. Please tell me more! Appreciate it.
  7. the news collection need to identify

    hi i found new fossils i think it is plante or coral please if someone has idea help me.
  8. Ladonia Fossil

    Any input on this found in Ladonia. I'm thinking it is a plant based fossil but not sure on any specifics. My middle daughter found it in the river bed.
  9. Hi all I've determined this is a fossil crab which I collected from Bribie Island (off a beach). I'm wondering if anyone knows any more details about what it could be? Thanks Diamond
  10. Found in Creek Bed

    After several days of rain we finally had beautiful day to take our dogs swimming at a Carrollton Greenbelt. As they where splashing around I looked down and found this fossil in creek bed. Does anyone have idea what it's from? Very heavy like petrified. Obviously its mouth (upper or lower) of something. I looked for more "parts" laying around but found nothing - of course was sinking in soft rock/dirt of creek bed hence did not spend a lot of time digging around. Any insight would be greatly appreciated but please speak in layman's terms - although finding interesting "rocks" is enjoyable thats as far as I can describe them so finding this is way out of my league. Thanks so much, D
  11. Not sure what to make of this?

    Any ideas on this? Found in a stream bed in the Glen Rose area of texas on a friend's property. The seemingly right angle and cracked appearance of the rock caught my eye. We found lots of Graphaea a few bivalves and gastropods in the area and none of the obvious rocks in the area had any cracks or looked like this thing at all. I'm not sure what to make or it.
  12. So I've recently decided to start collecting fossils and such And for my first fossil i decided I would like a spinosaurus tooth (as the spinosaurus had been a favourite of mine since around the age of 10) The tooth wasn't super expensive but I inquired the seller about it and asked if it was real. They said it was basically. Anyhow, I got the tooth and was wondering if you guys could give me some insight on wether it is genuine or not.
  13. Kem Kem oddball!

    Hi all, Anyone have any clue what this is? Both the standowner and I were perplexed at what it could be... It's from Kem Kem, Morocco. (Unfortunately, I can't post more pics, in case needed, because I didn't buy it... I somehow have the feeling I'm gonna regret not having bought it!) I am curious to see what this is! Max
  14. Found this walking the beach near South Ponte Vedra. I feel like I am on the roll, considering the baby mammoth tooth I found couple of weeks ago. I think it is a tooth, but dont know the animal it belongs to.
  15. Little shark tooth ID

    Hi all! I got this little shark tooth on an auction site and I was wondering what it could be... I don’t think it’s a Mako because it has a different shape. The tooth is from Antwerp,Belgium. I can see that they would of have been small side teeth. Can anyone help me? Here are some pictures, tell me if you need more. Appreciate it.
  16. Where to look in Texas Panhandle?

    Hey guys, Anyone from the Panhandle that can give some tips on where and what to look for? The problem is, around my country (wheeler county) there's so much sand, its hard to find solid ground. Anyways, hope some Texans find this. Thanks Grant
  17. What in the world?!

    I saw this fossil online. Does anyone know what it is? It is some jaw with teeth in matrix but what is it from? It is from Oued Zem, Morocco. Thanks (This is the only picture I have)
  18. What shark is this?

    This was from a pile of shark I bought from a seller in Belgium. I believe this one is from Antwerp. I have no idea what shark it is. Could it be a type of Mako? Any information would be helpful. Regards, indominus rex.
  19. Pterosaur Tooth

    Hi all, This is my 2,5cm pterosaur tooth that I got for Christmas. I do not doubt that it is from a pterosaur, but I don’t know any information. The previous owner said it is from Africa. I really would like to know the specie,could anyone help me? Thanks for the help.Tell me if you need more pictures.
  20. ammonites to identify

    Hi I found ammonites in the south of Morocco but I could not identify if anyone can help me.
  21. Fossilized bone?

    Hello all. I'm more of a Native American artifact collector but fossils interest me a lot as well. Going to start building my collection more as we go along. While looking in a large local creek this afternoon I found this. Now it may just be a rock as I'm much more knowledgeable about the NA stuff, but to me it almost looks like a fossilized bone fragment. The pores on the surface and at the ends is what made me think it was a possibility. Thanks y'all!
  22. I'm aware due to large water content they may not fossilise well, but still asking. Are there any fossils from the Cactaceae group? Cheers, Troy.
  23. What is this?

    Stumbled across this fossil while exploring a creek bed in the Ozark national forest.. wondering if you all could help me identify it?
  24. Cornuproetus Trilobite

    Hello all, I have received today In the mailbox a magnificent Cornuproetus trilobite from Morocco,that I got for relatively cheap on an auction site. I was wondering if anything would point to the fact that it is restaured,repaired,painted or god knows what. It is really perfect compared to other specimens, maybe « too » perfect? It has very long spines compared to my friends specimen (approx 3,5 cm from bottom of the trilobite to tip of the spine) The trilobite itself is approximatively 4cm (if unrolled) I have spotted something bizar on the front that I circled in red. Any comment would help. Regards Thomas Ps: Tell me if you need more pictures.
  25. Ive just sold two crabs and one nice fish and made a bunch of money's and I also had some freinds coming over. Once they left I started yet another fossil crab fossil. Whilst digging a hole in the concretion cause i wasnt sure of ventral or dorsal I was thinkin of another fossil hunting adventure and simply was not paying attention because of the excitement of all that money and friends and did a real number on messing up this crab carapace. I was absolutely shocked!!! Then was disgusted with myself. This is the most desaterly 'ding' ive put onto a crab carapace!!! Bar none!!! I can also now tell that this crab is sittin off center of the concretion. Not a good thing!!! Most of the crabs i do, do not make it into my collection, but thats besides the point. Having to 'fix' a big screw up really bothers me even though this crab more than likely has problems. Fossil preppin is for fools!! For losers! Sorry, just mad at myself, but this most assuridly lets you see that even the "Great RB' is not quite perfect. Ha!!! At least I can crack myself up. Still hurts though. RB
