  1. Help with preservation

    I found a Mastadon tooth yesterday while walking a creek looking for Indian artifacts I need help preserving this correctly.
  2. Help with fossil from Oklahoma

    Hello looking for help identifying what is on this plate. The label says devonian oklahoma but then gets hard to read maybe ketternopsis willrameri. Thanks in advance.
  3. screw-shaped, chamberless cephalopod?

    Hey! I was looking for native artifacts in a neighbourhood creek when I came across what I thought was a somewhat large cephalopod fossil. The creek is in Louisville Kentucky, leading to Floyd’s Fork. From the USGS Mapview, it looks like it’s Ordovician of the Drake’s formation. Either Bardstown member or Saluda Dolomite member. Upon further examination, I saw that the ridges on the sides were angled very steeply. It was very covered by matrix, so I decided to get to work on it with a dremel tool. After getting a significant amount of material off the fossil, I found that the ridges along the side were not in fact bilaterally symmetrical, and rather that these ridges went down the length of it, spiraling like they would on a screw. It is hollow, partially filled in with some softer, red stone and crystallized on the inside. From what I can tell, it has a curve to it reminding me of cyrtoconic(?) cephalopods. I read somewhere that cephalopods are bilaterally symmetrical, so I decided to post this here since I now don’t have any better guesses on what it is. My only other thoughts are that shark coprolites can be spiral shaped, and that it seems too smooth and hollowed to be a horn coral. My heads buzzing about this. Mum said it could be a unicorn horn . Due to upload limits, I will be adding a couple more photos below. I could not find any other fragments of the fossil besides this one section.
  4. Mysterious sea tooth

    I have found this thing in a campanian marine phosphate deposit. It came along with fish and shark teeth. It looks like some kind of tooth, but I have no idea. The brown area is translucent and looks like enamel. Although the grey is thicker and sharp. Any experts on cretaceous fish would be welcome Ps. This is definately not just a rock, I am fairly familiar with this deposit and can judge a rock from a fossil. Could anybody I'd this please?
  5. Identification help :)

    I keep finding these little things in my stones, what are they?
  6. Identification help :)

    This stone looks completely different than it did when I found it! At first it looked like a petoskey stone but now I'm confused, I see a hairy crinoid lol. Can someone identify it for me??
  7. Fossil ID

    Hello, I’m new to this forum. I really don’t know much about fossil bones and mostly look for shark teeth. However, last year I found an interesting object at Calvert Cliffs. At first I thought it was a rock, but it seems to be quite a unique shape and composition, so I am uncertain. I’d love someone to tell me if it is truly just a rock or if it’s a bone of some sort. I can take more pictures if needed. Thanks!
  8. Fossil ID

    This is my first post here so I’m not exactly sure of the formats but I found a possible bone that I am unable to identify. I found this at Calvert Cliffs and have never found anything like it. It could just be a stone but it seems like a very unique shape and structure/composition. Ask if more images are needed because the end is broken off and the internal structure is complex.
  9. Greetings all, I have found a third interesting keichousaurus. Compared to the other two I think this one looks better in my opinion. But as per usual I don’t have experience with keichousaurus so I would like some advice. Please let me know what you all think!
  10. Color, texture, shape

    Found around some plants in my yard. Very bright color, a few different shapes. Would appeciate any help in ID. and age would be great.
  11. Greetings all! I have found another Keichousaurus that looks very interesting. I do have some concerns about it, mostly the head looks almost drawn on (could just be me). Let me know what you all think!
  12. Hi I hope you are well. I need your help to identify this vertebra, I bought it in a garage sale in San Antonio, TX, it was covered with sediments that I peel out. Thank you for your help.
  13. Hi team, thoughts on this specimen? Ideas on what it is? Iv also uploaded it into the “is it real?” Category! It’s owner is from Germany but he can’t tell me anything about it. Thoughts? thanks Nick
  14. Hi guys! I saw this specimen and I thought it looked epic. I also thought, is it real? The owner is from Germany and can’t tell me what it is and the matrix has an interesting finish and a wooden back. Some red flags here but what are our thoughts? any advice would be great thanks.
  15. 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...
  16. Carolina Beach, NC area

    Hi to all the NC forum members! My wife and I will be staying @ Carolina Beach, NC from 12/8 to 12/15. First time ever in that area. Would love to find some fossils either on the beaches or nearby sites. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Currently we are at NMB, SC finding a variety of fossils on the beach here. Will post some pics when we return home. Happy Holidays to everyone and Good Hunting, Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
  17. Unknown fossil id help

    So found this in brushy creek in round rock texas. Dont know what it could be but I'm pretty positive its a fossil of some sort. Has the sound of very thin hollow porcelin when I set it down any help on id of these would be great.
  18. Fossils?! Please help identify

    The files I have are too large, I’m hoping to be able to post more pictures in the thread. These items were found on the Jurassic coast in the uk. The item in this image is smooth and solid, albeit there are parts of it broken off, it was whole when we found it.
  19. Hi guys! thoughts on this amphibian?? Real? It’s a Czech fossil from the lower Permian. Any thoughts welcome and thanks nick
  20. Hey y’all! Hubby and I have to go to NM this weekend to pick up our son, we’re looking to do a little hounding again. I’ll be researching on places to go in the Alamogordo area. I’m not looking for yalls special sites or anything, just maybe a little advice or idea of an area to look into going. I guess I should read up on the collecting laws there too huh
  21. Fossil sites around CT

    Hi everyone, I am new to this form and would like to know if there are any fossil sites in the general area around Connecticut. I myself live around Danbury CT and am not sure what places I could visit that are at most 4 hours of driving away from here. I have read about sites in PA like St.Clair and Carbondale but I believe both are closed now. Red Hill is also around that area but I don't know how I would get permission to go there. Also I don't really have a preference on type of fossil plants, fish, invertebrates, everything is welcome. Thank you
  22. Fossilized egg

    Can someone please tell me if this is an actual fossilized egg / it’s hollow - and if so, where would I sell it or get it authenticated?
  23. Hey team! What are your thoughts on this piece? Real? Permian branchiosaur from Germany. Thanks for any input
  24. Label help

    Hi all. I really like to have everything to be labeled, but I have collected from locations that have multiple formations and ages. How would you go about labeling when there is 2-4 potential formations or ages? Thanks in advance
