  2. Anyone know what this is?

    Hello! I found this on the beach while looking for sharks teeth. Any ideas on what it is?
  3. Not sure what this is

    Found this guy in a creek in Cincinnati Ohio. Not sure what to think of it, we have a plethora of Ordovician fossils in our area, maybe it’s one of them. Kind of resembles a section of vertebrae to me but I can’t tell for sure. Would appreciate any help. Sample is roughly 3 inches long by 1.75 inches wide.
  4. Unknown Green River fish

    When I was preparing this fossil I didn’t 100% know what it was but now am even more confused. The vertebrae’s do not match up with the fossil and the body seems pretty weird to. So if anyone could help me with this fish that would be awesome. And no it’s not a fake a prepared it myself.
  5. Found object

    I found this object in Corolla NC this past summer. It washed up after a strong hurricane. Any one know what this is?

  8. Large Cave Bear Jaw

    Hi all I’m about to jump on a big buy and i just wanted to ask if it looks like a good idea. it’s had very minor repairs and currently has a protective wax coating. what does everyone think? I would appreciate your opinion very much kind regards Dylan Macnish
  9. Possible triassic track?

    I found this near the 476 turnpike where they tore up all the ground and exposed the New Brunswick Formation. This formation is triassic. I went to a dump site where the construction company took all the rock. Is this possibly some sort of trace fossil from a lizard or sphenodontid? (If you neer to see it better flip your phone or device upside down)
  10. Unidentified theropod bone

    Hello every. Im looking at purchasing a new item and wanted some advice before I went ahead. It’s from a good seller and said to be an unidentified bone from the hell creek formation. What does everyone thing. Is it fake? What is it? Kind regards Dylan
  11. Found shell like fossil

    I found this fossil it kind of looks like a curled up tail of a crayfish but I’m uncertain.
  12. Can somebody ID this what I think is a tooth please

    The other pics of the tooth
  13. Hi everyone. I found this at high tide washed up on a beach in west mersea island, Essex recently. I know that this area and up towards Walton on the Naze is London clay and forms part of the red crag formation which dates back to the Pliocene period. The tide was pushing in from East to West at the time. I’m uncertain as to what animal (presuming herbivore) it is or if the tooth is complete. could anyone identify this for me please and if so is this a fossil from around Pliocene era or just part of a fresh carcass that’s ended up in the sea. There is no agricultural grazing within the area in which any livestock could have wandered off and ended up getting onto the beach and drowning. I can only upload two photos due to data size so will try to add the rest via linked threads (any other suggestions on how to upload all 6 pics at once would be appreciated) thank you for any help you can give.
  14. Help identify tooth

    Need some help identifying this tooth I found the other day. I thought it was a horse at first but the molar pattern is a bit different and it doesn’t seem to be as wide as a horse. Any thoughts?
  15. North myrtle beach find

    Here is another item I found in north myrtle beach! I'm not sure what it could be....I already have sea robin skull plates, and it doesnt look like that, but maybe it is something similar? Any help is appreciated! Posted are the top, then the bottom of the object
  16. North Myrtle Beach Fossil ID

    Hi everyone, I came across this possible fossil while looking for shark teeth. It looks like its definitely not just a rock, but I have no clue what it is. Does anyone here have any idea?!
  17. Looking for material to practice, like the u prep site but not as much of a gamble
  18. Hello forum, Recently I went to Walton on the Naze and I found a nodule on the beach that contained many fossil, some quite remarkable containing a shark tooth, scales, bones, fossilized wood and many more things to excavated. At first I was not going to pick it up ,as it was heavy (20lb to be exact). But I was upset to find out that I walked past a large megalodon tooth that someone else picked up. So here I am and now have this lump of rock, I have soak it for some time, to hopefully stop or slowdown pyritization. Now in the next few days I will be starting my prepping journey. Will anyone be able to give me advice, as I'm only using Dremel's, I wont be able to afford any thing else as it will not be in my budget. Opinion WANT TO REMOVE THE FOSSIL WOOD! THE SHELL ARE CHALKY DONT KNOW WHAT TO DO TO STOP THIS FROM FALLING APART? AND PREVENTING PYRITIZATION WITH NAIL POLISH OR CLEAR VARNISH ? Here are some pictures out of many.
  19. Help identify shark tooth

    So I found this tooth sifting through all the little extras from my fossil trip to Florida, it doesn’t look like any of the other common bull sharks, lemons etc. I think it is a baby megalodon but I’m not sure, it is serrated but a little worn, it’s much wider and not as narrow/pointy as a typical bull. Thoughts?
  20. Possible megalodon tooth in NJ?

    The grey tooth on the right is a small posterior megalodon tooth found in the peace river Florida. The copper tooth was found in a very shallow creek part of big brook NJ. Is it possible that a meg could have swam farther north like modern great whites do during a split time when the water level overlapped the big brook area and dropped it? I’m still new at identifying teeth but they seem VERY very similar
  21. EGGceptional or a SHAMrock?

    I’m new to this forum so I’ll start out by saying HI y’all...need some help from y’all in identifying this wanna-be bowling ball...Dino egg or no Dino egg? I found this out-in-the-middle of nowhere outside of Wimberley Texas....it would be cool if this was an egg but I’m not gonna get EGGcited or put all my eggs into 1 basket...ok ok I won’t “crack” any more lame jokes...thank y’all for your

  23. Help identify fossil pattern

    Found this interesting fossil over the weekend, can’t identify the pattern on it. Any thoughts?
  24. What fossil is this?

    I found this while fishing on the beach if a cove in Massachusetts. It was below a huge rock cliff. Other fossils have been found in the same cove. I don't know what kind of rock the cliff is but this was certainly way different.
