  1. I've been really wanting to get back into fossil collecting, so I thought I could start off by buying something to make my collection better. I've always had an interest for theropod material probably since it's so rare. I came across these claws on eBay. It's a bit pricey but before I make any purchase I'd like to know if I should have any worries of them being fake. Is this claw genuine?
  2. I found this piece of flint at the Beach last week. I'm not sure what it is - and just wondering it might be a fossil. If you have any idea what is it and how old it is, please let me know. :-)
  3. hi everyone. some friend of mine have this specimen in his collection. as he know, it was found somewhere in Uzbekistan. unfortunately, both of us have not enought knowlage to identify this fossil. may be you can help? p.s. may be this articles are useful to identify?
  4. Has anyone been to Jalama beach or,surrounding beaches in California? With the recent oil spill, is there still oil residue along the beach or surrounding rock outcropping?
  5. I am interested in a specific ID of this piece of rodent mandible. When I found it I immediately assumed it was mouse but then I decided maybe it is a bit too big for a mouse so I started studying small rodent dentition charts and was amazed at all the variations in the molars. Another hour in the internet rabbit hole (no pun intended). 7/8" in length (22mm), found in Florida's Peace River in a mix of Miocene and Pleistocene material.
  6. A partial dinosaur (I guess is psittacosaurus). Please help me see if this is real or fake.
  7. Hello, I found this piece today while exploring the beach in Northern Puerto Rico, in Miocene Limestone. Found some coral fossils and lots of molluscs shells. I believe it is a bone, it is very dense and heavy and seems to be fossilized but I am no expert. Please help me ID this piece Thank you! more pictures in next post.
  8. Hello. Found this in the bottom of a box of rocks and shells that I bought at an estate sale in Southern Connecticut. Very curious if any of the experts on this forum know what this is. Thank you.
  9. 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.
  10. Can anyone with Devonian expertise chime in? I acquired this from sylvania shale. The fossil is about 4.5 cm in length total, and the tiny markings each measure anywhere from 1-2 mm. The markings vary in closeness and wideness. First thought was a trilo trail.
  11. My friend has this fossil he says is from Kansas or Kentucky, but we don't know what it is. Anyone know?
  12. Hi all, would love some help please 1st - One of the rocks on the edge of my pond has these 3 raised mounds, 1 has something across it too I've highlighted. 2nd - small ocean fossil approx 1cm round zoomed in 3rd - worm like fossil approx 3cm long All from the Lower Hunter Valley area, Australia, Many thanks Chelle
  13. I found this whilst fossil hunting on the beach in Redcar UK. The unusual pattern on one side made me suspect that this could be a fossil of some kind but any help to identify it would be appreciated. Thanks Michael
  14. I found this thing 15 years ago in my backyard. I'm not sure what it is and just wondering it might be fossil. It feels like stone but have a strange texture, doesnt look like a regular stone. If you have any idea what is it, please let me know.
  15. What is your most favorite site to hunt fossils? Where is it and why?
  16. Found this on a local private beach in York VA. Not sure of the formation but Miocene I'm assuming, seems younger than the St. Mary's fmn ive collected extensively here and I've found a few mammal teeth (horse and bison) but no shark teeth on this particular area. I was collecting primarily cute cute little oyster cluster, the occasional barnacle clusters, as well as some cool branching bryzoans. And then this thing pops up. I've found modern fish spine sections here regularly and they're always white or rust stained due to fats, but this is obv darker and heavier, but but not truly 100% "stone / fossilized". any thoughts? thx in advance!!!
  17. Hi everyone, I've now changed servers for the Stamford and District Geological Society. Gearing up for a cracking new year. With full calendar of events for 2017 coming very soon.
  18. From the album WhodamanHD's Fossil collection.

    Ammonite, other than that i don't know anything about this one, I don't even remember where I got it.

  20. My boyfriend works in northern Ontario (Canada) at a limestone rock quarry and found this while chipping a piece of rock. I am not sure if this is even a legitimite fossil and if so what kind it is and would love some feedback!
  21. So this was given to me years ago by a miner when i was getting an underground tour at the national coal mining museum in yorkshire. Can anyone tell me if it's actually a fossil?
  22. I found this a while back, and I wanted to get your opinions. it has rings at either end, and the texture of the palm parts that remain have a lengthwise tubular structure. You can also see what look like grid-like 'cells' under the 10x loupe. It looks like it broke open at some point, revealing a really astounding bunch of glittering citrine crystals
  23. Good day, A few months ago I went fossil hunting at peace river in Florida. Here I found a few things that I've not been able to identify. These two are some of those finds. I've never seen anything like it so it's been really hard to identify. I'd love to hear if anyone can identify these finds. With kind regards, Thije
