  1. Fossil ID Help.

    Hello, I found this today in a creek bottom in SE Montana. Any ID help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
  2. This is not a rant or venting; just a mild exclamation of surprise and bemusement. So...I listed a few fossil shark teeth on LetGo and lo and behold, the listing was pulled and I was directed to the site rules where sho 'nuff: no fossils! Fossils fall under LetGo's Prohibited agAinst selling Animal products which (besides fossils) includes live animals and fur, skin, etc. of endangered species. What's strange to me is that 'only' the fur, skins, etc. of endangered animals are prohibited. I say that's "strange" because it doesn't seem the site bans other animal products since -besides leather shoes and clothing- goat skins and cow hides are offered; so it doesn't seem to be a case of "The Vegan Mafia" fighting "the rampant exploitation of animals, living and dead, modern and ancient" blah, blah, blah... And Indian Arrowheads and other antiquities are allowed so it doesn't seem to be a case of one of the misguided souls who mew "Don't nobody be robbing us of our heritage!" So why the ban against fossils-? What did a fossil ever do to LetGo? LOL
  3. Please identify this for us

    My daughter and I came across this on the shore at Big Bay, Ontario this morning. Could someone tell us what it is?
  4. Need help with ID

    My wife and I went fossil hunting today, and I found several that I am working on their IDs. However, I don't have a clue as to what this one is. Any help is appreciated. It was found in Cincinnati, Ohio, in the Corryville formation (late Ordovician).

  7. My son found this tooth in the field. I’m trying to identify which animal it came from. It looks like the root of the tooth and a broken top part. Can anyone help?My son found this tooth in the field. I’m trying to identify which animal it came from. It looks like the root of the tooth and a broken top part. Can anyone help?
  8. Hello everyone. I am looking for Silurian to Devonian fossils, preferably vertebrates and especially placoderms or trilobites. I am willing to trade shark teeth like Megalodons etc.... I also have ammonites and 2 crocodile teeth from Kem Kem, and a nice serrated Abelisaurid indet tooth. Some nice Kem Kem material as well. PM me if you are interested and I will send you photos of what I am offering to trade. (P.S. I am not looking for anything amazing as what I am offering is not amazing, I am looking for something of about the same value.) Best regards, indominus rex
  9. Knee pads and gloves

    I’m looking at buying some gear recommended by you guys who fossil hunt alot. Any recomendtations on nice gloves, preferably fingerless and very breathable. I’m also looking at buying some knee pads. thanks TFF.
  10. Penn Dixie Report

    Alrighty, looking at the calender I see the "Penn Dixie digging with the experts" trip is in full swing. We will demand pictures and at least a brief dialog report from members that attend. And the Aurora fest is not far behind so same goes for that as well.
  11. Fossil stores

    Hi friends, I've bought some fossils in the last years, however I know few fossil stores on internet that buy for a good price and post overseas. My favorite store is fossilforsale.uk and fossilera.com....so, could someone help me to find some good stores on internet? Thanks
  12. Petrified Mushroom?

    Hey everyone, totally new to this site, just signed up. I found (actually my dog found) what seems to be a petrified mushroom in our backyard in Colorado. I know these are very rare but not sure what else it could be...any suggestions? I appreciate your help!
  13. Hi guys! Saw this fossil online for a cheap price and I was wondering if it was real. I’m not very familiar with these Moroccan fossils but this piece looks ok to me, I just prefer to ask. The left fragment piece looks a bit weird. It is 30cm. Thanks for the help (this is the only picture I have,sorry...) kind regards
  14. Cap-Gris-Nez: sponge?

    Hi all, Found this at the beach in Cap-Gris-Nez, France. The fossils there are usually Jurassic, but I'm not sure if this one is from the same layers. Looks like it might be a sponge to me? Maybe not. Looking forward to your opinions, Max
  15. hi everyone this is matt again today in the creek when I was fossil hunting I broke open a stone and found this giant clam in side it came from the kennedy N.Y. area which is all devonian I think ? here is a photo
  16. Three root tooth - Help with ID

    I found this teeth on a beach in the Savannah River. I have to specimens both broken but I believe there the same species. Both have the what it appears to be a three root base. Specimen A Any input its appreciated! Thanks!!
  17. Tooth or Concretion

    Information: Squares in the background are 1/2 CM. (object is roughly 2.25X1.25X0.5 CM) (length-width-thickness) Unfortunately I don't think location information will be much use here but: Found in western Montana (United States)(near Great Falls) in a graveled driveway. No idea where it might be from, or if it was already here before the driveway. I'd be more than happy to provide more pictures/angles if it'll help. My little auto-adjusting light was being extremely temperamental with these pictures for some reason.. they are a fair bit darker than the object actually appears in-hand. The inner "tooth" is nearly pure black. I thought when I first picked it up that it was a tooth of some sort.. but the more I look at it, the more I'm thinking some sort of concretion. I don't claim to have any experience whatsoever with fossils, so I could easily be wildly wrong. Any of you more experienced folks recognize it? As a side note, if it does turn out something other than a normal rock, would I want to try to remove it from the other material? Any recommendations on doing so safely?
  18. I recently bought this fish fossil from a seller in France thinking it was 6 cm. I was completely wrong and it is a whopping 15 cm, it is in really bad shape and seems real. The only problem is that the Rock is super light, I was not expecting a rock of this size to be this light. I want to know if it's real and if it is, what species it is. P.S. There are also a lot leaf fossils on it.
  19. Hi there, This is my first post so please excuse any errors. I found this fossil in Brook Bay on the Isle of Wight last year. I would really appreciate some help in identifying it. Someone who runs a fossil shop there suggested it could be part of the jaw of a lepidotes? Any info gratefully received.
  20. Fossilized nut? Or just rock.

    I was looking for fossils around a bunch of small rocks and came across this, it was heavier than the other rocks and seems to have a “soft” feel and not hard and scatchy. Any info is appreciated
  21. Few fossils, what are they?

    Any ID and information would be good. Found in Akron Ohio
  22. Hello! I'm wondering if any of these shells are known to ONLY be found in shallow water. If so, which one? And how shallow are we talking-- 10 meters? 100 meters? Found near the Azores, depth unknown. Some forams can be used for scale. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
  23. No Prep Crab!!!

    Here is a small crab concretion I found many years ago, probably about 16 or 17 years. This crab you can see the arms of the crab sticking out of the concretion. This crab comes from Oregon and is in some of the hardest rock ive ever delt with!!! I saved this one for my collection just to show an unprepped crab from this local. About 90 miles away, you can find the same species of crab, but in a totally different and much softer rock. Here are pictures of both. These are known as Orbitoplax weaveri and Eocene in age. RB
