  1. I just checked the weather forecast for next weekend. It looks promising. Right now all of our snow is melted, with no snow in the near future. The week is supposed to warm up to the mid 40's with saturday reaching a high of 49. I am planning on doing a Central New York Devonian Adventure! Sangerfield in the morning and Deep Springs in the afternoon. Are there any brave souls who would like to tag along? Dave
  2. This was found by my son today while we were fossil hunting at a local beach in Calvert County, MD along the Calvert Cliff formations. We are guessing a fossilized molar but not quite sure. Any help in identifying this piece is appreciated. Thanks.
  3. I thought I would post my collection of self found fossils. This will be a work in progress. I will start with some of my favorites. Here are my megs from Brownies Beach, Calvert Cliffs Maryland
  4. Found a large amount of these up in the mountains in Huehuetenango, Guatemala, near Laguna de Magdalena, approximately 3,200 meters above sea level. Immediately assumed it was a type of coral, especially considering the area was at the bottom of the ocean 300+ million years ago. Does any one have any idea what this is? Is it in fact coral? Any idea what kind, if so?
  5. Hello! Looking through all my fossils, I found this thing at some point. It was in a small bottle with Ray teeth from Balegem (BE), a fossil location containing fossils (sharkteeth, ray teeth, fish teeth, and other marine material) from the Eocene (25-35mya). I'm pretty sure that this thing is not a ray tooth though. Any clue what it could be? Photo 1: front Photo 2: back Photo 3: closeup front Thanks in advance for the help! Best regards, Max
  6. Haven't seen this elsewhere on TFF: "A huge, five-million-year-old whale tooth has been discovered on an Australian beach, providing the first evidence of the now extinct killer sperm whale outside the Americas." I presume this belongs to Livyatan melvillei? @Boesse should know? I liked this bit, and upon finding this I would also be the same: "After I found the tooth I just sat down and stared at it in disbelief," Murray Orr said after the find was announced on Thursday by Museum Victoria, to whom he has donated the tooth." Another great contribution to science by an "amateur" or avocational paleontologist.
  7. please if you guys could help id thank you....
  8. Hi, Can someone help identify this tooth? Is it just from a cow? It is from a creek in the St Louis, MO area. I've had it since I was a kid and have always wondered what it is. Appreciate the feedback!
  9. Does anyone know if this is a fossil, and if so what it might be? Thanks! -Jason
  10. Hello! I live in Las Vegas and I love fossil hunting in Frenchman Mountain, the there are trilobites everywhere, I finaly found a full body trilobite there, can you guys I.D this one for me? I am pretty sure they are Olenellus nevadensis, because they are common in Nevada (who would have guessed that?) but I am far from an expert.
  11. Hello. My girls and I found this tooth along the banks of the Cooper River in Charleston, SC, USA, while fossil hunting. I've seen pics of horse teeth, but this appears to be more flat than the squarer horse teeth I've seen. I found a few shots of llama or camel teeth online. You can see a bit of serration on the top of pic 3 which makes me think it definitely is a tooth, but a camel in SC?
  12. Does anyone know what this is? Found in East Oklahoma near Arkansas border. Its petrified into a rock.
  13. I've been hanging on to this fossil for years, I recently pulled it out of the bucket it was in and was curious to know if anyone on here could tell me more about it. It's approximately 3 inches in diameter. It was found in a creek bed in south central Missouri. Any advice would be appreciated!
  14. Hello again. So the story behind those is that I found the smaller one when I was a child.. may be around 15 years ago and I kept it to bring me memories for the adventurous spirit from those times. This year, my brother found the bigger one.. it is similar but a little bit larger so I decided for a first time to investigate the origins. I found the little one in area with trees and leafs on the ground and somehow I think I stepped and dug it from the ground cause the angle of the soil was too sheer. The area is central Bulgaria, seems like some kind of cockle ? Seen more like this ? The closest sea is 180km away... is that a proof for area being full of water may be long time ago?
  15. share with us, a PHOTO of your favorite fossil in your collection not even necessarily your best, definitely your favorite
  16. The jaw section and teeth are throwing me for a loop. This matrix chunk is from Morocco and I was wanting to id the jaw section and nothing I am looking through has comparable teeth. Please help.
  17. So this came to me in in pieces and it was been repaired and I still have no ideas or what it could be. All I know is thats is from morocco (unknown region), it looks to have "suckers" on the end of the piece which throws me. I have had the thought of a marine plant root of some kind. Thanks for the help!
  18. Found this rock that appears to be shale. It also seems to have a fossil in it. It was found in southern Nevada. What is it?
  19. Hello, I bought a small fossil that looks like a small eel fish. Is it just a knightia from a top angle? Or is it something else? Also the back part of the rock was revealing a small brown spot. I got curious and started chipping away and I found another fossil! That one looks like a knightia eocaena but since I'm so new I can never be too sure. Help will always be appreciated!
  20. Hi there I am a 35 year old man from County Antrim in N. Ireland. A while back, while walking along the shore I found a piece of flint that I thought looked "worked". I found this really fascinating and have been bitten by "the bug". I always keep an eye out when I am out with my Son, for possible worked stone or fossils. I came across a flint rock that has a faint outline that looks almost insect like to me?I hope someone might be good enough to have a look for me? Any feedback or advice appreciated!Regards, Jonathan Front
  21. Is anyone interested in joining me for a day of fossil hunting on Friday (13th). I will need to be in Castle Hayne for Firefighter School Friday night so I will be free all day Friday. I am not familiar at all with fossil sites in that area, so I will be researching. I mainly metal detect for colonial relics (former TRR President, Raleigh, NC) but am hoping to start locating fossils regularly. Considering Green Mill Run in Greenville but am open to others.
  22. Not sure what this is if anything; maybe just shell, but hopefully not. It was found in a Miocene area. It is 1 1/8" X 1/2". It is 3/16" thick on one end. Thanks.
  23. Hi! i found this fossil, among with many others which were Crinoidea in limestone. This was lying amongst the limestone pebbles which contained minute fossils. This one caught my eye, at first it looked like a rock but on further inspection it got me thinking it could be some sort of fossil. It has lines running along it, in one direction, they taper down to the bottom which I also have took a picture of. It was found on the coast, and the site I went to is renowned for its many crinoid and coral fossils. The whole shoreline was mainly limestone. I was thinking it was some sort of coral or shell. It measures approximately 5cm in length. Maybe a belemnite? Thank you!
  24. 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.
