  1. Hello, my name is Andres. I found this in "La Pedrera beach" in Uruguay. At first I had no clue of what it was. I'm prone to think it is a sponge fossil, but would want help in this matter. I found it vaguely buried in the sand close to the shore. The sand of that beach is grainy and loaded with lots of shells of many mollusc species. If it is indeed a sponge fossil, what species it would be? Thanks in advance!
  2. Hey all, Here is an ammonite I got from a museum as a very small kid. I have no clue about where it was found and what age it has... Any clue of the species??? Also, if you perhaps know where it could have been found (and it's age), that would be fantastic! Any help appreciated! Best regards, Max
  3. Does anyone know when Bison died out in Iowa? I myself have a single vertebrae and the front lower left half of a buffalo jaw with 2 teeth in it. I think it must be any wear from 500-to a couple thousand years as it is dark brown in color. 16 - 1.webp
  4. I found this guy over the weekend, I just want to make sure it's not something cool... but I know there is a high chance of it just being a rock with little rocks stuck in it. I am curious if these little black tubes could be some sort of organism? I found these digging at GMR in Greenville NC and cannot say that this was pulled from any particular group/formation because I found it among a large amount of whale bone, shark teeth, enchodus tooth, shells and my buddy Rick also found some native american corded pottery in the spot too. So we are talking a range of time here that doesn't help narrow anything down. It was hard to photograph, I can get some better images with a digital microscope tonight if that would help/let me know where to focus at/on. They are on the top and bottom and sides (where it wasn't broken off) of this piece.
  5. I found this here in Houston there were a bunch of rocks. They probably were transported from central Texas. I was split them up and I found a "ball". I think this is a fossil from a marine creature.
  6. hi all, i just bought this ammonite for preparation, this will be my first preparation ever, any good advice? didnt really know how to start.
  7. From a Miocene area. The oval portion of this vertebra is 4" across by 2 3/4" wide. Thickness is 1 1/2". Any idea what animal it would be from? Thank you.
  8. I don't remember where I got this, just found it while going through an old collection. Is is a fossil? Is it a shell? Is it artificial? I've no idea what it is. I'll put more photos in a reply post. Thank you to all who reply!
  9. Hey guys, I saved these from going to the landfill or being ground up and used as fill. A large stock pond was being dug on a friends property and I grabbed these when I saw them. I have had them since about 2012. I believe they're pieces of an ammonite or ammontites. I'd really like any info anyone can give me. And yes I have read up on google but it's difficult to to google something that you're unsure of, ya dig? (Fossil pun)
  10. Hi, yesterday i went to offerton in the river goyt for my first ever fossils hunting trip, had a nice time in the nature and some nice finds =)
  11. Another find this weekend, actually Rick found it but let me bring it home, want to confirm that it's a petrosal and also what species based on my research I believe it to be. Found: Greensmill 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. Believed to be a Petrosal from Balaenoptera Sursiplana? I thought (from one specific article/image reference below) that is was possibly Plesiobalaenoptera but it noted they are only found in Italy and the long flat part seemed much thicker than the reference image, but the rest seemed better matched than from the other species noted above?
  12. We found this tooth on oak island in North Carolina. New to shark tooth hunting and cant seem to ID it. Its about 3/4" long. Thanks!
  13. found some intresting things in my yard... ive found a few pieces like this
  14. I picked this up as part of a collection this is one of the few items that did not have labels or information. It looks like a feather to me but I am no expert. Thank you
  15. Can anyone help ID this pinecone fossil? No location or other data. Size is in the photos. Thank you
  16. I know this is probably nothing, and sorry for being a noob; but is this a fossil? It's just that the lines caught my eye. Thank you to all who reply!
  17. share with us, a PHOTO of your favorite fossil in your collection not even necessarily your best, definitely your favorite
  18. Note the tiny little swirls in the object, what could this be?
  19. Hi Found this on Kilve beach amongst all the ammonites. Anyone know if this is a fossil? TIA
  20. Hi,i think this is an oyster attached on this somethimg a fossil too or?found in Croatia and the piece is big about 20cm.tnx.
  21. Here I have the front, left, and right profile of a rock that I came across next to a creek in Elizabeth Town, Kentucky. Given that it has symmetrical featuress on both sides it appears to be a skull of some sort. I need help identifying what this is. I was unable to upload a picture from the bottom but in the back there is what looks like an area for the spine to attach to the "skull." Help would be much appreciated.
  22. I got this Titanother tooth the other day and I wanted to clean some of the matrix off. I was wondering if anybody had any tips or tricks on how to do this. What kind of tools should I use. Should I soak it in water first? Should I just leave the matrix on there? Any advice and tips would be appreciated. Thanks Tom
  23. What ever it was in this shell it was giant , but what it was? Can any one help me with it?? Found in North Wales Cambrian Coast, Irish Sea
  24. Hey all, I unearthed this nice piece of fossil coral again from my collection. I got it a long time ago, and I don't have any info on it whatsoever (no location nor age). But I think it might be possible to put a species on this one. And with some luck (actually a lot of it), maybe we can guess where it came from and what it's age is! Any help appreciated!

  25. A friend from Owego, NY sent me this photo of a specimen he found near his house (not quite sure of the circumstances). When he first described it, it sounded like an ammonite, but after seeing it, I don't know what it is.... some kind of coral, stromatolite, petrified tree, concretion?? I'd appreciate any help you can give. Thanks!
