  1. Kamp Ranch Texas Ptychodus Teeth

    I purchased some Ptychodus teeth and I can not determine the exact ID on my own. They are smaller than P. whippeli or P. mortoni teeth I have and bigger than the single P. anonymous tooth I have though that is the species I originally though, and still think these are. They are from the Kamp Ranch section of Eagle Ford in Texas. I consulted a very well put together ID guide here but am still just not sure what I have, other than nice Ptychodus teeth lol Any help would be appreciated.
  2. Coprolite?

    Dear TFF members, Expert opinions please. Thank you, Ricardo

  4. Bone?

    I have found this fossil in the Negev dessert in Israel. It have a shape and texture of a bone. Can anyone help me ID it? Is it a bone? What kind of bone? Is it a reptile bone?
  5. Help in ID

    I have found this fossil and cleand it with vinegar. I have never found a fossil like this one, can someone ID it? I saw some similar fossils from madagascar with the name "zipper oyster" if that what it is, can you tell me the scientific name and some details about it?
  6. Help id teeth

    Hi! Can someone please help me to identify these items? I found them at a beach in Portugal, close to the city of Setubal. I often find bones there too but I don’t dare to bring them home...
  7. Large tooth, bone or rock?

    I Was climbing rocks in central Missouri when i went into a deep crevice (aprox 3 meters down) i found a large "tooth" It is fairly smooth and was grown into some tree roots. Is this just a lucky shaped rock, or a fossil?
  8. Oklahoma fossils ID help

    Found several fossils near N 387 Rd. Hulbert, Oklahoma (Cherokee Co.) 36.034753, -95.179779 in late June of 2018. I don't know anything about fossil identification, but I hope to label them with some identification. They were on exposed rocks, probably mississippian or pennsylvanian according to a map I saw. Sorry that the photos aren't too good, but a phone camera was all I had. 1.
  9. Onslow Beach Finds

    Recently moved to NC and my husband and I have have found some pretty neat things on Onslow Beach (Camp lejeune). We would love help identifying some of them as we are new to the world of fossil hunting. The only one we are pretty sure on is the bottom right being a crocodile tooth? Thanks in advance!
  10. We found this fossil this afternoon in Big Brook, NJ...trying to figure out what type of fossil bone it is (or hopefully is); any help is appreciated! Thanks!
  11. Afternoon all, I picked this up today in a flea market, the seller had no idea where it came from as it was in the place when she took it over. So sorry I have zero info. It seems to be a real fossil and not a fake, even if it isnt real I only paid a few pounds for it! Cheers in advance. Tom
  12. Heavy Bison Lean but not sold yet

    i found this tooth on a gravel bar today, I'm thinking buffalo but seems big even for that, ive found horn cores part of a skull and a few leg bones of a buffalo up river but they are still bone. this tooth could be from the same animal but it seems unusually dense so it may be fossilized and therefore from another animal. or bison teeth are naturally dense i don't know looking for help with id. if my osteology class taught me anything i can tell you its an upper right molar but that's all I'm confident about.
  13. Trilobite trouble

    Shall we discuss this Trilobite? I am completely out of luck on IDing it, as there are too many of this type of insect that are so similar, i had a possible match after some research, and judged it to be likely from around 500 million years ago, lost the comparison somewhere though.. My guess is that it is a common specimen.
  14. Unknown

    I found this along the Skunk river in Iowa and have no idea what it is. If anyone has any idea please let me know!
  15. Fish pectoral fun...?

    Found this on a local private beach in York VA. Not sure of the formation but Miocene I'm assuming, seems younger than the St. Mary's fmn ive collected extensively here and I've found a few mammal teeth (horse and bison) but no shark teeth on this particular area. I was collecting primarily cute cute little oyster cluster, the occasional barnacle clusters, as well as some cool branching bryzoans. And then this thing pops up. I've found modern fish spine sections here regularly and they're always white or rust stained due to fats, but this is obv darker and heavier, but but not truly 100% "stone / fossilized". any thoughts? thx in advance!!!
  16. Mammal Tooth

    A good friend of mine sent me these pics of a mystery tooth from Morocco that he acquired. It looks like mammal to me but I'm not a tooth guy so I said I'd post them here and mine the hive mind of TFF.
  17. Past Find

    I picked this up a couple of years ago. I am hoping someone can help with an ID. Thanks!
  18. Shark teeth ID help

    I found these near Charleston SC and would like to know what type of shark they are from. I will give them to my nephews and let them know the type of shark and some information on each shark. Any information is appreciated. Photos of front and back sides attached.
  19. Petrified pineapple ?

    Found on the wonderful sulpher river
  20. Jaw and ear bone?

    Good day. I suspect I found an earbone from a porpoise and some type of lower jaw section?
  21. What is this? Possibly from the sea?

    Hi everyone, I volunteer at a charity shop and this just came in and I'm not sure what it is. It was used for an art project, that's why you see glue in the middle. I was wondering if I could get some help from the experts. . Your help is always appreciated! Thanks, Erin
  22. Peace River Mammal Teeth

    We put in at Boat ramp near Canoe Outpost Gardner and traveled up a little bit past Limestone Creek. Found some teeth in the Peace River. That I have thus far been unable to identify. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  23. I found this fossil in a bag of "river rocks" that I bought at a local Menards store, hence I have no idea where it was orginally picked up. I'm not knowledgeable abuot fossils and don't know if this is a plant or animal, but I'd sure enjoy knowing what this is! Can anyone identify this? Thank you in advance!
  24. A Day Trip Back In Time

    A few weeks ago, I took a 2 hour day trip from my usual Pennsylvanian stomping grounds to some Mississippian turf. Having made a brief stop here about a year ago after visiting some friends, and seeing how crinoid heavy it is, I'd been wanting to return to see if I could find any crowns. As you'll see from the pics, it appears to have been a turbulent time way back when, so I didn't find what I was seeking. But, it was a good hunt; found a couple of firsts, some unknowns, and I believe it warrants a return for possible better specimens. First, a (sort of) panoramic view: continued...
