  1. Hi ! I found this little fossil near a river at the Saguenay Region (province of Quebec, Canada). Can someone help to identify it ? I know it is hard to say how old it could be but how long does it take for a fossil to form? Glad to have found this forum ... it's really interesting ! PinPoint
  2. Hello! I found this on the beach a few years ago. I wasn't sure if it was a fossil, a tool, or maybe a piece of something from a ship. Thank you for any help you may be able to give.
  3. Hello, I recently found this object washed up on a beach in northern California. We're wondering if anyone recognizes it, or could tell us what type of animal it might be from? Thanks so much for any suggestions, Jackie Sones Bodega Bay, CA
  4. Hi everyone this is Matt again last weekend I went to the fossil and gem and mineral show at the hamburg fairgrounds it was a blast lots of fossils and gems when I was there I got a nice trilobite and a ammonite the trilobite was called dalmanites limulurus from the sliurian- Rochester shale Middleport, N.Y. here are some photos
  5. Hi everyone, i found this thing that seems to be a Theropod footprint. In this area there were dinosaurs, but here the karst has a foundamental role: many shapes are due to karst. Finally this "footprint" is single while the other tracks that have been found are in sequence. For you can this be a Theropod footprint? Thanks
  6. 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.
  7. Found in Poland, not in situ. Age unknown but possibly Palaeozoic.
  8. Weekend find, date may have been 18th not the 19th, working to verify with dig partner. Found: Greens Mill Run, Greenville NC among a huge array of items (whale bone including several tempanic bulla, shark teeth (great white, tiger,crow, Giant White Shark etc) and two Enchodus teeth etc. Partner I was digging with found it (we were digging same location/hole together) in his screen and let me keep it. Boesse Confirmed an ID on ID Forum "Nice specimen! This is almost certainly Balaenula sp., a dwarf right whale known from the Yorktown Fm. at Lee Creek. It's a miniature version of Eubalaena in that image at the top (which is from my blog)."
  9. Hey guys and gals, would love an opinion on this tooth I found online. I think I am seeing a repair to the tip, but other than that it almost looks TOO perfect to me. Thoughts? Especially @Troodon and @Susan from PA
  10. Hello, just joined the forum and thought we'd start with info on one of our favorite places so far. My wife and I are fairly new to rock / fossil hounding but enjoy it very much. im willing to share this site with you all, just send me a message. in the mean time, to the experts who might be able to point us in the direction of info for identifying what we have found would be greatly appreciated . Doug

  12. Will be traveling from FL to SF Bay Area in April. Have the Weekend of April 22/23 free. Would like to hunt Shark Tooth Hill (or area) with fellow TFF'ers if possible. Most interested in shark teeth that aren't BLACK since I normally hunt the Peace River & other areas of SW FL. Will need some help as I don't know anything about hunting on dry land without water. Thanks in advance! Calvin

  16. Hello everone, Thank you in advance. This is my first post so bear with me if I don't give the proper information needed or if my photos aren't sufficient. I think this is a fossil? Possibly some sort of fish? Found on the Los Angeles coast in San Pedro area of california. I'm posting two photos but because of the size I couldn't post the rest. I will try to post more in another post on this thread. Thank you again, Amy
  17. I'm a noobie here, but recently moved to Jacksonville and we've become somewhat obsessed with hunting shark teeth. My wife found this tooth a few days ago and we're struggling to identify it. Could it be a megalodon?
  18. I found this his big tiger shark tooth at a local rock shop today. The tag says Eocene but no location info is provided and the store worker had no idea. It looks modern, but the enamel has chipped back a bit as if fossilized. Was wondering what you guys thought? cheers!

  20. Hi there! I found this specimen on a beach in north Florida (Amelia Island). The curve shape caught my eye, and the black surface changing to dark brown interior reminded me of fossil coloration. Any chance this is a fossilized tusk of some kind? Hopefully the photos are detailed enough. Many thanks!
