  1. I found this rock at my lake house in Chesterfield, MA. Not sure exactly what it is, but it definitely does not look like just a rock to me. Any help identifying it would be much appreciated! Thanks
  2. ID Help. Is this wood?

    Hi. I need help with this please. Pulled it from our creek today on our private property, along with shark tooth, pliestocene horse teeth, petrified turtle shell, NA artifacts found in area also.
  3. Hello all, I recently returned from Peace River with a few finds, including this 15 mm fossil. I believe it's a small herbivore tooth, but I'm new here so would greatly appreciate help on the ID. Thanks!
  4. Help Identifying Strange Fossil

    I live just outside of Pittsburgh PA in Coraopolis and I found a strange fossil while digging the other day. I think it could be some kind of fossilized wood, but to me it looks like a large nut, like an almond almost. I'm not sure the age of it, but was wondering if anyone has seen anything similar.
  5. Complete newbie- is this a fossil?

    Hi all, I know absolutely nothing about fossils I’m afraid, but found this on a beach in Mexico and thought it looked like a tooth- does anyone know what it could be? Thanks, Natalie
  6. Mammal Bone/ Peccary Canine?

    Hi everyone! I recently went to the Matoaka Cottages in southern MD where I found a mysterious looking object, the Choptank formation is exposed here and from what I can tell it is bone of some sort, as it still seems to have bone marrow inside of it. My second guess of the object was some sort of tooth, I had my bets on a peccary canine but my main guess is still bone. If someone could help me identify this it would be a huge help!
  7. Unknown Shark Tooth

    Me and my dad were fossil hunting in the Calvert Cliffs Formation in Maryland, at brownies beach when my dad found this beauty. I thought it was a bull shark at first but upon closer inspection I am unsure as it hooks off at the end to the left. If anyone can identify this it would be much appreciated!

  14. mystery fossil from NNY

    I was looking through some old family videos and I stumbled across this one with a pretty cool fossil— my family and I were never able to figure out what it was. It was about a foot long (that was my small hand in the first photo— for scale.) Any insights are greatly appreciated!!
  15. fossil from upstate ny

  16. Fossil ID help

    I found this yesterday in the Wabash river in northeast Indiana. Its about 2.5" x3" Sort of resembles a mammoth tooth but it may just be my imagination. Thanks in advance, -Troy
  17. Is this even a fossil?

    Hi, I found this down on the beach at Walton on the Naze (UK) the other day - not entirely sure what it is, or even whether it's actually a fossil or not - but thought I'd ask if anyone else has any other insight? It appears to be pyritised, but other than that, I don't really have any clues as to what it could be.
  18. I bought this today at a market and would like to know what species it is and if it’s real I’m pretty sure it’s real but you never know the guy that sold it to me said it was from Madagascar and some other stuff but he said it all in a different language so I didn’t know what he said. Sorry for the noob question! Thanks for any help

  22. Help with some dirt road finds.

    Me and my wife went walking some dirt roads. Found so many shells, and these 2 teeth. The big one was pretty busted up. I'm thinking sand tiger and great white. Am I correct?? Thanks! Sorry for the terrible cell phone camera...
  23. Hello kind folks of the fossil forum, I recently had the opportunity to take photos of some of the more rare/unknown fossils found in the fiddlers green member of the Bertie group. All these fossils came from Lang’s quarry in Ilion, New York and are not Eurypterids. I was given permission from Al Lang himself to post these photos. These are from his personal collection. He does like his privacy and doesn’t like people showing up out of the blue. I’m lucky to have met him and received an invitation. I’ll stress this was a huge stroke of luck and he doesn’t often have or want visitors. He was kind enough to let me show these photos, so let’s appreciate this opportunity together. Some of these fossils have been seen by very few people. I was also allowed to take photos of his Dolichopterous specimens which are also exceedingly rare but they will go under a different category on the forum at another time. Now some of these can be found in ontario at the ridgemount quarry but keep in mind these are from a different layer than the Eurypterids found in central New York. The stratigraphy is slightly different across the state. Either way, at least some of these may be described....some maybe not? Photos to come. im going to post the pics together with 2-3 grouped together if they are the same and I’ll separate photos if they are loners. This will make it easier for people to quote photos.
  24. Hello everyone, I kept these from fossil hunts in buffalo years ago cause I knew they were different. I read they split Greenops boothi into 4 different species with 2 variations of Greenops and 2 variations of Bellacartwrightia in 1997. I have some pieces that I’m not really sure which trilobite I’m dealing with. I just know it’s not the Greenops grabaui variety. The cephalon came from basic Wanakah shale that surrounds the “trilo beds” as I was moving blocks. The pygidiums came from the “trilo beds” of the lower Wanakah shale at the Lake Erie shore in Buffalo, New York. I only have “a field guide to Devonian paleontology” by Karl Wilson and “Geology of 18 mile creek” by Grabau for reference. I can’t find anything reliable on the internet either so I’m curious if the kind folks on the forum have an opinion. I do have another book on Devonian paleontology of New York coming in the mail that is more recent but the new paper was written in 1997 and this book is a 1994 book so it may not have the update either. The last 2 pics are comparisons of the pygidium of a Greenops grabaui with the specimens in question to show you why I think they are different. I also just added a last photo of the other side of one of my unsure specimens that’s actually a full trilo but damaged beyond belief...may not help with the ID but maybe it could lol. Thanks Al
  25. Possible fossil?

    Hello everyone hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! My father got to work yesterday and found this during their construction job. He said it was 9ft underground and says that the black sphere is heavy like metal and popped right out of the rock. Is this a fossil? Thanks for any tips!
