  1. I have recently found a fossil of Conus seashell in Macedonia, in the region of Shtip, to be precise. I want to know what is the ID of this fossil. Can anyone help me to indentify it? Thanks in advance.
  2. lol...now this one fooled me but good

    this one fooled me good really thought I had something but then I turned it over..nature sure is sneeky
  3. another piece of weirdness

    found this in the gravel piles ... its weird for sure. Not sure its a fossil think its a not-fossil ....could be some type of agate?. location: west of Houston in Brookshire gravel load from Brazos river size 1"x1 1/2 " inch.
  4. Hello everyone! I found this specimen also in a creek on a walk through a local park north of Pittsburgh. Thinking it may be a burrow fossil, but if it is, was wondering if there is an actual scientific name for it, so I know how to file it away accordingly under the proper name. Found the term Cruziana online, and wondering if this would qualify. Does anyone have any opinions? Or, if it is a burrow, is there any way of narrowing down what might have made it i.e. trilobites/arthropods etc? Details: 1) Found in isolation/there were no other similar pieces nearby. 2) Measures about 8-12 inches long. Burrow notches are about the width of a penny. 3) Again, found in Carboniferous territory in Western Pennsylvania found in a creek. Thanks everyone!
  5. Strange looking vert

    Found this odd vert today in a gainesville creek. Referenced my books, looked online, and can’t find anything that looks like this! Any help would be great! Thanks
  6. Crinoid stem segments from arkona Ontario.
  7. Possible fossil?

    My father just found this today in North Texas at his job site, is this also an ammonite? It's pretty big. It was dug up 9ft under ground.
  8. Kem Kem Carc?

    Recently purchased this nice little fossil. It’s sold as Carcharodontosaurus, but I know this stuff is tricky to tell...could anyone tell me their thoughts? Possibly another theropod, etc? Cool specimen nontheless
  9. Gift from the Sea

    From the album OBX

    It's amazing what washes up on the Outer Banks - modern sea shells, sea glass, bits of wrecked ships and fossils, too! These shells embedded in sandstone washed ashore on Hatteras Island, NC, from the Pleistocene sandstone shelf on which the island rests.

  12. Outer Banks Treasures

    My hubby and I went to Hatteras Island, North Carolina this past week for some fun in the wind. But, I just can't go to the beach without beachcombing. Most of the beaches I visited were rather slim pickings for even decent modern shells. I finally did a Google search for the best shelling beaches on the Outer Banks and came up with a few beaches spread across the archipelago. The south side of Cape Hatteras was one of the best and quite close to where we were staying, so off I went. Wow. Colorful, unbroken shells lay thick on the tide lines and scattered across a wide, sandy plain. Here and there, blocks of sandstone (broken off the Pleistocene shelf that holds up the islands) were scattered. The surfaces exposed to the wind were sandblasted to expose the shells inside. Most of the shells retained their original colors. My suspicion is that they were buried while deep enough under water that they didn't have an opportunity to fade. The result is that the fossils - almost all extant species - were only distinguishable from their modern descendants by the clinging matrix. Fossil corals were also scattered sparsely across the sand. These are a bit easier to recognize as fossils as the closest coral reefs to Cape Hatteras are some 75 miles off shore. You can see more finds from this trip here:
