  1. I was burned by buying two fake eggs and was hoping someone could recommend some reputable sources to buy a real dinosaur egg, i have collected a few dinosaur fossils over the last 5 years and really would like to add an egg to my collection. any help or advise would be very much appreciated.
  2. Fossilized turtle?

    Needing help on indentafication of what looks to be a turtle ir shell at least. Any info as to what type of turtle or what I have. Thank you
  3. Whale Tooth?

    I was looking over some fossils in my collection, and can't remember where the heck I found this. I was thinking it is some type of whale tooth, but ..... it really doesn't look too much like the others I have found. I would greatly appreciate y'alls opinion. It is the lower item in the pictures. Thanks in advance
  4. Scotia, cali.

    Found In scotia, ca. How do you determine how old? And what's a good solvent to loosen up sand stone
  5. Going through a forgotten corner of the basement last night I stumbled upon a box with some of my grandfather's "rocks" that my grandmother gave me when she sold her house and moved in with my mom a few years ago. As far as we (my grandmother, mom, and myself) know these were all found in Maryland. He worked for the state dot for years as a bridge inspector so they could be from anywhere in the state. The lighter 2 pieces I am confident that they are petrified wood, the brown/red looking one I am not as sure. The brown/red piece's outside is almost like spaghetti noodles laying tight against each other for lack of a better description.
  6. Fossilized bone found on North Sea beach

    Sorry I do not know terminology yet... I found this North of Amsterdam and I would love your thoughts. Thank you!
  7. what are these?...are they coprolites?

    ok not quite sure what these are find one every now and then...they have an odd coating dropped a couple in the acid bath for a few minutes and looked at them through a microscopic camera and found all sorts of little goodies... so wondering could these be some type of poo??.....fossilized feces. Coprolites...??. ..fish? turtle? lizard?...??
  8. fossilized tiny egg mass???

    found west of Houston in Brookdhire in gravel load from Brazos River at first I thought it was a piece of turtle shell then perhaps a piece of corral but when I looked at it through a microscope ???? I went online and looked around found something similar but its modern horseshoe crab eggs???...could this be eggs from a very old horseshoe crab? but I think they are smaller...or perhaps something else? it is slightly curved...the clutch is flat about a 1/4 th inch think and an inch in width this is the first thing like this that I had found. if its eggs they don't seem to be on anything just a solid crystallized mass. have also included a pic of horseshoe crab eggs for comparison. a few of the pix I took of them wet others dry.
  9. I found a bunch of new pieces. Please help!

    Found a lot of new fossils this past weekend. I typically collect shark teeth but I am trying to learn about other fossils a little bit now. I’ll post 3 pictures of different pieces because that is the max allowed to post. I’ll also try and post more pics in the comments if I can. Where are my smart people at?!
  10. Not sure? Fossilized Bone or Mineral?!

    I found this piece this past weekend. I’m not sure what it is..? Possibly fossilized bone but the consistency is so hard it looks more like a mineral to me? The middle is a beautiful tan, almost shiny metallic color at the right angle. Anyone know what it is?!
  11. Petrified snake head eating lunch

    I found this today. Hard as a rock.
  12. Petrified Human Part?

    I found what seems to be a fossilized human body part, not sure though. It seems to be something, but not quite sure what. Do you think it's just rock? It is rock, but do you think it's a fossilized human part? A museum I sent a picture to said it was just a rock, but I don't know if they would really want to tell me.
  13. Fossilized material from Oklahoma

    Recently I got a fossil and it was originated from Oklahoma. I'll like to know from your experience, what do you think this is? Thank you.
  14. Fossilized worms

    I'm new on this site and have a few fossilized rocks that I need to ID. This first rock (from Tooele County Utah) looks to have fossilized worms on it. My town of Tooele sits on the ancient dry remains of Lake Bonneville, so I'm always finding rocks with shells and fossils. The rock has some florescent properties, but I think this maybe due to the saturated caliche in the soil (not sure though).
  15. This in my eyes is fossilized coral. But I'm trying find out what kind? It has crystals on the inside.
  16. Greetings fossil lovers, hunters, and/or experts. I read the newbie advisories and understand what they spell out. I am a member of other hobby groups, and therefore understand the frustrations presented by dealing with "drive-by" posters. That said, I may qualify as such a poster, as I am not a fossil hunter. I am, however, a person who is interested in different things, most of them antiquities of various types. Machines for the telling of time, aka watches, are but one of them. I am quite ignorant when it comes to fossils, archeology, anthropology, etc. But I am known to possess good instincts for finding interesting specimens. I believe this may be no exception. If it isn't, well, I won't take it too hard. I found this specimen near the coast in Southern California. It was in an area that was frequented by a local indigenous people known as the Chumash. There is a lot of shell remnants around the bluffs and up to where the Pacific Coast Highway runs between Los Angeles and Ventura. It was right after a large brush fire burned to the water. This was probably over 20 years ago. My thinking is that it is a piece of fossilized bone, perhaps a human femur. There is a lot of evidence of a spongy structure, both internally, and externally, but of perhaps differing densities. What I believe may be the front portion of the suspected femur, is rounded and has creases running the length. The length is approximately 100mm, width/diameter 39mm, and height 25mm. It weighs in the neighborhood of 68 grams/2 3/8 ounces (A rock of similar dimensions would seem to weigh more.). When I tap it with my fingernail, it has a bit of a "glassy/obsidian" sound to me. Again, different than a common rock. My instincts tell me this may indicate a fossilized condition. But that is just an uneducated guess. What do the learned forum members think about this article? Does it appear to be, based on photos and description, fossilized bone? Is it also possibly from a human, rather than other animal? Any input is appreciated. Thank you in advance. Cheers.
  17. Bone? Tooth? Something else?

    Hi everyone, yesterday I was hunting for sharks teeth on the beaches of Wilmington, North Carolina, when I found this. It's very heavy and definitely fossilized, but it doesn't really look like most of the whale bone I'm used to seeing. The piece slightly curves and has ridges down the length of it. It's about 2 inches long, 1 inch wide, and a half inch thick. Any kind of information would be greatly appreciated!
  18. This looks like a vertebra but not sure

    I found this on the Frio river bed by Uvalde, Tx and it looks like a vertabra of some kind. Rather large and it has the common shape and segments. Here’s a picture
  19. Are these human teeth?

    Are either of these possibly human molars? If so, would they be recent, Native American, or perhaps older? If not, what do you think they are? They were found on the Potomac river, in Purse State Park, in southern MD on separate trips about a year apart.
  20. What made this footprint?

    Hi! My friend went to a museum and sent me a picture of this fossilized footprint. He said that they don't know what it is from. Does anyone have an idea?
  21. Phalanx from what?

    Hello, I found this fossilized bone while walking down by the river in Missouri. In doing some research it looks like it could be a metatarsal bone. It seems hard to identify what animal the bone could be from. I took several photos but due to size restrictions I am going to post one and then see if I can post the others to my original reply. Do you know what the bone could be from or how old it may be? It is the first fossilized bone I have found so I appreciate any help. Thank You!
  22. Fossilized bone ID or speculation

    Found in my yard about 2 miles from the coast. I live in Charleston SC. https://www.flickr.com/photos/14372793@N02/albums/72157688823647345
  23. I found this specimen on a beach in northern michigan. It was found along with sea shell fossils and petaskys.
  24. One More: fossilized poop?

    This is one more item that I found in Arkansas. Maybe I just have a big imagination, but could this be fossilized scat? I saw similar photos online and the person who posted it called it "turtle poop". I would appreciate any other suggestions as to what it could be. Thanks!
