  1. Collected in northeast Iowa which is part of the Driftless, very rugged with lots of streams and flooding that cut away the earth. Most fossils here are Ordovician. Most are limestone of the Galena Formation. HOWEVER, this area is a hotbed for mammoth and mastodon teeth and bone finds that the locals call "dinosaur bones". That said, there is an area recently rumored to have a lot of "dinosaur bones" just 30 miles southeast east of Spring Valley, MN on the edge of Iowa. No one wants to talk about it for fear the government is going to come and confiscate their finds. Posting for a friend, so not my find. This is truly an intriguing rock. Spherical, I want to say "cherty" like a possible internal mold, the straight line and the way it is cracking almost like shell on the outside is also interesting. This could just be a very cool rock or...??? He sent me pictures and I am posting it in hopes that someone has seen something like this before. Since I am not very familiar with fossilized bone except for the real dino bones I have from the Hell Creek Formation, I would appreciate any sharing of knowledge that you guys and gals may have in what to look for in that area - @old dead things 1 2 3 4 5
  2. Please help identify

    I found these on the surface of the Mississippi River bank in Natchez Mississippi within 20’ of each other.
  3. Help with ?Fossil Identification

    Hello All! My husband and I are building a home in Central Kentucky (Frankfort) and have been finding a plethora of agate, jasper and geodes. I found some odd looking "rock" that I was puzzled about. It looks a lot like a scapula maybe, is very porous looking under the microscope and is very heavy. When I put my tongue to it, it sticks. The specimen is about 5 inches by 3 inches. Here are the photos: I would greatly appreciate any input anyone has for me. Thank you, Annette
  4. Yesterday I took a short trip to Crystal Beach, Bolivar Peninsula, TX. I found plenty of tumbled fossilized bone fragments, but this one caught my eye. I have no idea as to what it could be from, but if I had to guess it might be some bone from a fish. Maybe one of the many knowledgeable forum members can help me out. It is very thin, no more than 3 mm, and about 2 cm in length. It probably comes from an offshore deposits of the late Pleistocene, Beaumont Formation, which has been known to produce mammal remains and shark teeth.
  5. Two unknowns from Brownies Beach

    Hi everyone. I found this small cap-like structure at Brownies beach last Saturday. It is around 1.5 cm across. The second is 3.5 cm long and 1.9 cm tall. Any help id-ing these would be appreciated, as always.
  6. Good Evening, I saw an image in my fossil book of an enamel cusp from a mastodon tooth that looked similar to my chunk. I found it in SW Florida and its a about 1 1/8" x 3/4". It's caramel and black in color with a few red spots and highly polished. It has yellowish fragments of something in the bottom of the indentation. Could this be tooth fragments? All replies are much appreciated.
  7. Unknown fossilized bone

    Please help me find out what kind of bone this is, I found 2 of them in Venice, Florida
  8. Would like for you to ID these

    Sorry about this being my 2nd post(introduction was the first) but I really have no idea what I'm doing. I picked up a box lot of mineral and fossil specimens recently. Primarily for the goniatite fossil that was included. In that lot, I found a few pieces labeled "dinosaur bones" and one piece that looked to be a tooth, only in shape, and a mystery piece. I'm hoping that you can id these for me. These are keeper pieces for me just because they are very cool. The first owner was kind enough to glaze the pieces with a high gloss protectant. I would also love to remove that. Thanks Dave
  9. What is this ?

  10. Hello, I am need of help identifying this fossilized bone I found back in October 2005.Found bone on the Brazos River sand bar located in Wallis Texas.Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
  11. Found On Fossil Ledge

    I was scuba diving 40 miles off Wilmington, NC and was 103' down and found this bone among whale bone fragments and meglodon teeth. I thought at first it was a vertebrae but do not think so anymore. Would someone be able to help me identify what it is? thanks in advance, peter
  12. Help Id Fossilized (Animal?) Bone.

    I found this while tilling up my garden a few weeks ago. I thought it was a rock until I washed it off and removed all the packed dirt. I know nothing about fossils, but I thought it was unusual enough ( for me) to save and try to ID it. I hope these photos are clear enough to see. It's got a real smooth ridge on one side. I found this in lower SE MI. Thanks in advance. B.
