  1. Triassic mystery bone

    Hi all! I've found this strange bone (unprepared yet) in triassic aged sandstone from the anisian. In the same location there have been many shark, fish, and Marine reptile species reported. I can't seem to I'd what part of the body this bone represent, not even talking about the species... The bumps on the surface are half spheres, some of them protruding half way without squere encourage, I think they can be teeth or some kind of dermal plate. So, does anybody care to share their thoughts on the matter?
  2. Fossil or not?

    Hi! I'm confused a bit? Is this fossil or not? It's little heavy than normal tooth,btw I try the burning test on some edges and it burns but doesn't smell like a burning bone and on some it doesn't burn at all..As u see the part underneath looks mineralized and it doesn't burn.If u can help some how,maybe some other test?
  3. Possibly not a fossil, looks cool

    I recently got into looking for fossils with a friend and we stumbled across some beautiful ammonite fossils and I saw something real interesting that might not even be a fossil, so wonder what it is and how it’s formed? I am guessing the ammonites look like possibly early Jurassic or late Cretaceous. This was pick up in the Rocky Mountains in Northern British Columbia, Canada. I’ve also attached a picture of a full ammonite that was on the same rock (broke it into pieces to share). There are multiple partial ammonite imprints on the main rock. If if nothing else I hope you enjoy the pictures.
  4. I have some really worn pieces that look like bone, but some people say they are just rock. Anyway to get a positive ID?
  5. Horse or a Bos tooth?

    Pozdrav! Found this today after a heavy rain in my garden,not sure if this is a bos or a horse tooth.I try with burning test and it really is a fossil .
  6. Fossil or some tool?

    Pozdrav! I'm not sure what this is: Some Fossil or maybe some hand made tool? I found it as always in my garden I wonder what can this be? I will add pics now:
  7. Shark tooth in NC

    I found this in Havelock NC. The bigger one is 1 inch
  8. Greetings! Before I mess this thing up, I wanted to ask what I should do with this piece from Calvert Cliffs, MD (Miocene). It is about 13 by 9 inches and is pretty thick, about 22 pounds so I have no idea how much bone is actualy in there. When I found it, it only had about 1/3rd of the bone showing. Once I started picking away with my dental picks, more and more bone started showing up (I didn't get to the end the bone in any particular direction) but unfortunately the material is getting tougher to pick away. So my questions are, does anyone know what it is right now, should I continue prepping and if so, would my dental picks and other small tools be okay to use? If we think it will end up being unidentifiable material, I may end up keeping it in the matrix - I actually think it looks pretty cool with the shells and ray tooth. Thanks!
  9. Lots of IDS needed

    I guys I have a large amount of unidentified fossils (40+). I was hoping you guys can Identify them for me. All were found in eastern NC (Aroura or Emerald Isle beach) Thanks, for any help. I have them numbered for easy reference. I also have them next to quarters and pennies for size reference. The quarter is 1 inch tall and wide and pennies are .75 inch tall and wide I can take more pics upon request 1.
  10. Is this a shark tooth?

    Hi all, My name Jackie, but my friends call me Jax, and I am visiting Onslow beach from Fredericksburg Va. I joined this forum because I found what looks like a tooth of some kind to me on Onslow beach. The couple I am with are local and have found tons of small black ones on this trip, and they have quite the collection at home as well. The "teeth" I keep finding are identified by my collector friends as "that's a rock". I found what appears to be a tooth of some kind, and I hope someone can help me ID it. I hope this doesn't become a new obsession, but considering I have spent a valuable hour of beach time researching what may, or may not be a shark tooth I fear it may be too late. Thank you. Beast Regards, Jax
  11. I found this lying partially buried in a seasonal creek bank. In northern Nevada. I continue to search as many areas of the internet for info and have come up with zero. (I originally thought it a large mountain lion...but I no longer think this is what it is. ) The size is approx. 12" x 13". The eye orbits were almost large enough for my 17yr old daughter to put her fist into. There were no teeth attached to the remaining skull. It appears to have had it's face smashed in ......info appreciated.
  12. 3 Bland Rocks

    Hey guys, I’m currently in Dallas for work and was walking home when I saw some weird rocks by the side of the path. Two of them put me in mind of coprolites, and one like a bit of bone or petrified wood. I’m very open to these being nothing, too. Any ideas? Thanks! Robbie
  13. Hello, yesterday they gave me a coprolite, I never had any, so I do not know if it's real. regards
  14. My wife obtained this in China about 10-15 years ago. It was said to be from Tibet?? Can anyone here tell us more about it? It weighs 5.6 lbs. It's 10" tall and 5 1/2" across at the widest point. The insect is 2 1/2" across.
  15. Id help

    Been struggling to identifiy this for a few months now...found it on a marine Miocene area, but also land mammals have been found around... I tried searching ulnas, hummerus, femurs...of all the animals I could think of...but either it is a simple chunk of rock or I am missing something... The specimen is around 1p inches long.
  16. I have recently purchase two large pieces of Jurassic aged bone from the Morrison Formation near the Dinosaur National Monument in Northwest Colorado. They seemed to be shaped in a way that it maybe possible to give them a general ID, I don't know if it can of course go as far as ID the specific dinosaur of course but if anyone with experience may know what kind of bones they are, any help would be appreciated as I would like to label them for the collection. As it stands the first larger one I believe to be likely sauropod bone or some other large herbivore while the second one I think may be theropod of some sort. Also if it's possible would anyone be able to tell what kind of bone they maybe like for example limb, leg, metatarsal, etc. Any feedback will be greatly appreciated! The larger bone measures nearly 9 1/2 inches long The smaller one measures approximately 6 1/2 inches long
  17. Hello! I found this rock along the trail at the bottom of the canyon in Whirlpool State Park, NY, along the Niagara River. Very curious to know what the fossils might be. The rock was in a pile of recently fallen shale from the side of the canyon. I was tempted to keep it, but left it there for others to find and enjoy! Thanks for your help!
  18. I got this fossil as part of a collection I bought and so have no idea where it was found. I have attached pictures of both sides of it. It is roughly 6cm wide and has a depth of abouth 3cm. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  19. Trilobite Pygidium ID

    This morning I was going through a bucket if Black Cat Mountain matrix a friend gave to me. I found this nice negative of a large trilobite Pygidium. I wonder if some one might know the species. Thank you
  20. Hawthorne whale bone

    So I've had this guy for almost a year, this being one of the whale bones I've gotten from Summerville, SC. With its odd shape, I've been puzzled as to what bone in the whale it was: Flip side: End with protrusion: Flip:
  21. Little prep....id ammonit

    Hi everyone, today i have finished preparing this little ammonit from Normandy. Does anyone know what ammonit is this? Before After
  22. Crinoid ID?

    Hello all, I'm asking for your help again! Can anyone confirm if this roughly 1.5mm fossil impression is a type of star shaped crinoid stem piece? That's my guess. It was found near Graf, Iowa from the maquoketa formation, upper Ordovician. It's on the backside of a piece of matrix that has some trilobite debris on it and I thought it was neat. Thanks for your help!
  23. Strange Fossil

    I found this while breaking fossil rocks looking for some interesting subjects and came across this, most if not all fossils in this area (Ohio) are from the Mississippian period where I’m digging. Please give any info on this I have never seen anything like it.
