  1. Drepanosaurus claw?

    Wondering if this could be a claw from a Drepanosaurus. What do you guys think?
  2. Newbie with another fossil I hope

    Found this while hunt native American artifacts. It looks like a shell of some kind. Half I'm sure is chart. Please identify. Thanks railguy
  3. Fish for ID

    Fossil fish for a friend, no locality. Any ideas? I was thinking asineops.
  4. Hey everyone. i’m currently looking to buy some nice specimins that will be put on display. I know very little about triobites, other than that they look really good. I’m looking for a nice affordable specimin that will display nice. So if you have any other suggestions i’ll be happy to hear them! i found this online, and it states that it has had some repair work being hairline crack repair in the matrix, which i know is very common and i’m perfectly fine with it, but has the repairs been over done? It’s a Paralejuras trilobite, thanks!
  5. Fossilized Fish?

    I’m hoping someone can tell me which type of fossils are in this rock. I found it in my yard in middle Tennessee. There are several crushed shells visible, but I’m especially wondering about the areas circled in red. The area circled in the third picture almost looks like a fish? The smaller circled area appears hollow. I’m not sure of what that could be. Any ideas? Thanks!
  6. Is this a fossilized turtle shell

    Does this look like a fossilized turtle shell? Photos should speak for themselves. https://ibb.co/bHmcnT https://ibb.co/dtD7nT https://ibb.co/g2Qyu8 https://ibb.co/nqUDST
  7. Greetings, I recently bought a beautiful Spinosaurus tooth that was previously restored as some parts were obviously broken and put together with some sort of brown putty which looks like dirt or rock fragments. The problem is that the tooth had an accident a few days ago (it fell from the stand) and it broke again. I put the parts together with super glue but the cracks are now wide and visible and I would like to hide them a little bit by using some putty or resin, I don't want the tooth to look perfect and unbroken, just to look like before it fell, like there is some dirt or rock fragments instead of cracks. Do you have any tip about how to do that? Any brown putty or resin? Thank you very much.
  8. Fossil teeth and jaw fragment

    I have actually had a small fossil for years, but had forgotten about it & the way I got it is sort of funny. 2002 I went with my then roommate on a trip to the John Day fossil beds state park in Oregon for my birthday. Got to walk around the painted hills and then the paths in the fossil beds. At one point my foot slipped off a path & slid down maybe 2 feet (of course I hit the ground). Got up & continued on my merry way after brushing the dirt off. Several miles down the road later I started feeling something in my shoe & figured it was just a pointy rock. Turns out it was a small fossil of a partial jaw with teeth in it. Apparently the critter it belonged to wanted an after life snack... Just over 1 cm long x 1 cm wide and weighing a stunning 0.8 gm. The John Day fossils are late Eocene to late Miocene. Any idea what this originally belonged to? I know it isn't much to go on, but I figured I'd try.
  9. Egg, Concretion, or Neither?

    I recently bought the item shown in the attached photos online. (Images show the front and back.) Unfortunately, the seller did not know exactly what it was, so it was sold to me as a 'mystery item'. Is it a concretion, or something else perhaps? The circle within a circle with the raised 'egg-like' formation has me a bit confused. Thank you for your help everyone! **First post - I'd like to say that I'm very grateful and excited to be here.
  10. Newbie with a "fossil?"

    I found this lying on top of ground. In South central Pennsylvania on my way home from picking raspberrys. I hunt native American artifacts and have a habit of always watching the ground. I thought it was a dog tooth and stuck it in my pocket. A day or two later I realized it had no root. After A lot of research I'm sure its a claw but from what? It sure looks like it's from Spinosaurs . This is not a dry climate and by far not a place where fossils are found lying on top of the ground. Please help me identify this or point me in the right direction. Note the two holes at the back of it. Thanks railguy https://www.thefossilstore.com/spinosaurid-toe-claw-91mm
  11. Fossil or rock?

    Believe this one was found in Kansas. Is this bone or fossil??
  12. Beach Pebble with Fossil Imprints?

    Happy Friday! I found this very unique pebble on Casey Key Beach, Florida. It is about a 1/2"x 3/4". It has a tusk shell shape on one side and a triangular shape on the other; looking like something was replaced with quartz crystals. Does anyone know what made these impressions? Is this considered a fossil? Thanks all.
  13. Help please

    Any idea what this is??
  14. Fossil ID please

    Heres another fossil I found. Any ideas?
  15. Fossil or rock?

    This is among all the fossils from a yard I cleaned up. It kind of looks like a alligator head, but is it just a rock?
  16. Old Seabed Fossils of Some Sort.

    I found this and many others in a stream near Dayton, Ohio. Its a piece of old seabed and contains dozens of fossils. I'm a VERY novice fossil hunter so I could use some help identifying everything that's going on with this one. I found a lot more at this location, if you want to see more, just let me know. Also let me know if you would like more photos of this one. Thank you to all who reply!
  17. Organizing Collection/ ID Help

    Organizing my collection has been the tedious, but also a really fun process. I’ll probably continually posting here for assistance. When I’m feeling a little more confident about my ID’s, I’ll post it in the members collection section to share. I still have some fossils to prep, piece together, display, label, etc. and really fortunate that I have all of you helping constantly; it really speeds up the process. In another year’s time, I’ll be much more educated/ well rounded Some of my fossils are rookie purchases, so I’m just trying to make the best of it. The issue is , I think they’re pretty cool, but not sure if they are worth displaying given that they are bone fragments. I was thinking maybe in a riker...also the issue of labeling...Below are three separate purchases. Group 1: The seller sold these in fragments. Several of these pieces I glued back together neatly with Paleo bond. The seller must’ve used some kind of thick glue originally because there are some marks, but it’s no big deal... anyway these were advertised as Albertosaurus bones... when I asked the seller why he labeled it as such, he said because it’s very probable? I asked him for a coa, and when I received it, it only said Tyannosaur bones... so I’m going to leave it at that...because it’s indeterminable. Even back then I knew Coa’s were pointless, but I always like asking for one, because I feel like it could possibly put a little pressure on the seller to be a somewhat more honest like it did in this case...however in most cases sellers don’t care: Tyrannosaur bone fragments: Judith River Formation, Northern Montana The other small miscellaneous pieces I don’t think can be glued back...no fit or match, just associated bones...What would you label the fossil as, and are they worth displaying?
  18. Vertebrae?

    not sure where it was found. I 've had it for decades. Before I knew about fossils, I thought it belonged to a cow
  19. Fossil help

    The plant. And probable egg were found at the Wichita, KS airport in a area meant to be part of landscaping. Would like possible names and age range. Will upload vertebrae on different post.
  20. Fish scale?

    I have not the slightest clue what this is. The seller never mentions anything about it. My first guess would be a fish scale but it's quite large. The whole thing is about an inch in diameter. From the green river formation.
  21. Neat mastodon rib bone for sale that I’m interested in. Can more knowledgable tell me if this is indeed M. americanum given that it’s just a bone fragment? Fossil is from north Florida
  22. Possible jaw?

    Possible jaw bone frag? Some say gator some say mammal . I have no clue!
  23. Seller claims to have secured this in an estate sale. It’s on the pricey side. For me, it’s difficult to see any difference between this and an average spinosaurus tooth. The fossil is from moroccan sahara, says there is civil war in the tenere desert, and therefore collecting there is illegal due to current regulations. Thoughts?
  24. What kind of bone?

    Hello to all! My Brother found this 60m from the beach of Paralia (Greece).It is hard and heavy and it doesn't smell with burning test.So,question is: What kind of bone is it,also from which animal? Thanks
  25. Belemnite Phragmocone

    Is this a belemnite phragmocone? I found this today in yorkshire.
