  1. any ideas?

    not sure what this is or if its even a fossil ... it actually looks like a dried up turd but it actually is stone I will be posting these pics of it dry, well mostly . I will then post a set of pics of it wet. Then I will post close ups of certain points on it. It was found in a gravel pile from the Brazos River west of Houston Tx. measures just shy of 4 inches long and one and a half inch wide.
  2. I found 2 separate sets of these- 1 set on 2 different days in the Danube River in Germany. These look like teeth, but when I cleaned them they began to smell like skunk.... the more I cleaned, the stinkier they got. Anyone know if they are teeth, a plant, or something else entirely? It was very difficult to determine. (My husband is a dentist and initially he was certain they were not teeth, but after being cleaned, it was even more ambiguous.) I finally gave-up, took this picture, and threw them away... FAR AWAY! Thank you!

  8. Is it a fossil?

    I found this while I was walking through a creek on my families property in Ashland, OH. I took this into my geology professor and asked him what he thought it might be. He said that it might be a section from a piece of Horn Coral but that he also was not sure. Any insight would be helpful.
  9. What type of fossil is this?

    Hiya. Wondering is anyone able to help a novice fossil hunter! I've been looking at lavernock point again in South Wales. Found this (what I assume is a type of fossil) embedded in a stone. Looks different to the usual amonite fragments, bivale/shell ones we usually find. Wondering if anyone could help identify it please xx

  13. Fossils?

  14. Finding fossils

    I live in Kansas and thought I had a lot of fossils. Well, I guess not. Is there a type of rock that houses more fossils than others? What signs (crystalization? ) a color? Etc should I look for?? Are fossils typically a certain color? Does anyone have fossils still in the matrix that they could post here to help me know what I'm looking for? Please. Thanks!!

  17. “Fossil” Tooth ID

    Hi Fossil Forum community, I am a complete neophyte is this field so was hoping to get some insights from you. On a recent walking trip in the mountain region in the north east of Mallorca I came across this curiously shaped rock. It was located in a dry riverbed in a canyon close to the town of Binibona. I thought from the shape it could be a tooth of some type but considering the quality of other fossils I’ve seen it would be poorly preserved if it were. Dimensions of the find (at its widest points) are: Height - 15 cm Width - 13 cm Depth - 7 cm. Hopefully this is enough detail and somebody can bring some clarity to this and I’m not wasting your time with a coincidentally shaped piece of sandstones and my own personal pareidolia. Regards, John
  18. MORE corals, Dichocoenia????

  19. Coral ID's - How am I doing?

All except the LAST coral - Not sure about THAT one! Kingdom: Animalia Phylum: Cnidaria Class: Anthozoa Order: Scleractinia Family: Mussidae Genus: Manicina Here is Coral #1 & Coral #2
  20. Oddballs of Cap-Blanc-Nez

    Hi all, Found these oddballs at Cap-Blanc-Nez, France. So Cretaceous in age. What do you think they are? I'm not even sure that they are anything, they might just be weird geologic formations. Looking forward to hearing your opinion. Thanks in advance, Max Oddball #1: (kinda flat; and the white spots are concave)
  21. What vertebra is this?

    Hello, I found this vertebra for sale online. I was wondering what animal it belonged to, my first thought is bison but it could be something else. The seller says its from deposits of the northern sea from a Pleistocene deposit. It's 22 cm in length and is 8,5 cm wide. That's all the information the seller gave. Please feel free to leave any remarks as to what it can be.
  22. Not sure what this is

    I was scrolling through our favourite auction site when I saw this for sale. The seller has no clue on what it is and has no info on where it is found, my friend says it looks like nothing but I want to know what it might be. All information would be helpful. Regards, Indominus rex
  23. Sponge fossil or just concretion?

    Hello, I found this last year on a mountain near Munster, a city in Alsace, and it is a marine deposit. And I found this on the mountain and I am not sure what it is. So any help with the ID would be great.
