  7. Amazing Pertified Creatures

    I found these petrified specimens on private land in the northwest part of San Antonio, Texas over the last 10 months. I did little, if any digging, as recent rain has exposed them. I'm here to learn about the science, as well as what I have in my possession. They are beautiful creatures whom appear to have been frozen in time. What exactly are they and how did they end up in this state of condition. I'm excited to hear you responses as I am new to this "world of fossils" but a willing participant. Thanks for letting me take part.

  9. Rhaeboceras halli

    A new edition to my collection. I was told that the original finder of this item listed it in his journal a Rhaeboceras Sp. and the seller said her source could not find it listed. A check of the internet proved it be an ammonite. Location matches his journal entry. SPECIES Rhaeboceras halli AGE Late Cretaceous - Upper Campanian Stage View on Geological Time Scale LOCATION Rosebud County, South Montana FORMATION Bearpaw Shale SIZE 2 1/4 " wide 5.8cm x 1 1/4 inch thick. CATEGORY Ammonite Fossils

  11. Are these gastroliths?

    Hi! My name is Annika. I have these two stones my cousin gave me. He also doesn't know what they are, but could they be gastroliths? If not, what could they be?
  12. Catskill Fm Plant Material?

    While collecting in the Catskill Formation of Pennsylvania I came across this piece that struck me as a little strange. It is different from other plant material that I have seen/found at the Red Hill site. I ended up bringing it back home just because of how odd it was. Is this perhaps Callixylon? Alternatively it could just be geological. Any help is greatly appreciated. Here is a close-up of the big piece in the middle:
  13. St. Clair Lycopod Leaves

    I found these two pieces many years ago during a visit to St. Clair, PA (Llewellyn Formation; Late Pennsylvanian). I initially identified them as Cyperites but now I am starting to confuse myself because, as you can see in the third photo, these leaves are much wider than what I would normally attribute to a lycopod, which I have always understood to be long thin wispy leaves. The fourth photo is meant to provide a more close-up image of the leaves. Should I stick with the Cyperites identification or is there a more accurate identification? Any help is greatly appreciated The two pieces: The width of the leaves A close-up
  14. Rocks or fossils?

    Hey all, I'm brand brand new to the fossil world. As in, went out to try to find fossils (on a legal collecting site) yesterday for the first time after a bit of reading. I'm in Colorado, and I was looking in an area that is known to have a lot of fossils and there is a lot of erosion exposing different layers. But I really don't know what I'm looking for. I presume all of what I found (or at best, most) is just different coloured rocks (the black spots maybe oxidation from iron content?) but how can I tell fossil from rock? So I thought I'd post some of what caught my attention here and see if anyone can point out to me why these are just rocks and not fossils, if in fact that's the case, so that next time I know to pass them up. (The only one I'm seriously questioning is the small grey one in my hand -- it sort of looks like a fern impression to me? Anyone else see it?).
  15. Fossil ID Plant, Shell?

    Found near Lake Vermillion, SD. It's a very nice impression. Would just like help with an ID please and thank you.
  16. Hi everybody! Today i want to kindly ask you help for the correct ID of this trilobite. My choice is Morocops ovatus but obviously i prefer to listen the ideas of experts (@piranha @Kane @Tidgy's Dad and more). I'm thankful to everyone who want to participate at the topic Here are the info: Origin: Jbel Zguilma (Foum Zguid), near Alnif, Morocco Age: Emsian, Devonian Lenght: 5.5 cm / 2.16 inches The trilobite is not in my hands, the photos are from the seller. Thanks and have a wonderful weekend!
  17. Thames fossil, tree?

    Hi all, I'm new to this forum and wondering if you could all help me out. I found this fossil on the Thames foreshore in London at low tide. I would love to know what it came from! My only thought is that one side looks like rings of a tree and 2 other sides look a bit like bark. Would be very grateful for any help! Thanks
  18. Hiya everyone I just recently purchased this trilobite ain’t arrived yet some help would be great
  19. Hey! These are just a few of the bones I found recently which were all found near each other in horseshoe canyon AB. I found what I believe to be albertosaurus teeth and a piece of a hadrosaur jaw as well with them which makes me assume they are from one of those two species. However, I need help identifying which species each one might be from and what part of the dinosaur they are. If you need measurements I'm happy to post pics next to a ruler!
  20. Tooth Id

    Hey! Both of these teeth were found in the horseshoe canyon in the same place. I was thinking Albertosaurus but I don't know(They are serrated if you couldn't tell from the photos). Any ideas? (sorry for the low quality images)
  21. Is this a fossil tooth?

    Hiya everyone someone is selling this as a fossil tooth in matrix just wanting a little help I can’t tell much from the photo
  22. ID Help

    Hi, I'm not a collector of fossils. I found this about 20 years ago. It was from the Niagara escarpment at Inglis Falls just outside of Owen Sound Ontario Canada. According Wikipedia the escarpment's caprock is dolomitic limestone and is composed of an outcrop belt of the Lockport Formation of Silurian age. I thought it might be a winged insect but if it is Silurian or Devonian maybe a water based creature. I'm not sure if it is a wing on top or part of something else. There appear to be a few small and very small mollusc shells embedded in the rock although they aren't clear in the photo. In the side strata there is quartz as well as other layers including a dark/black layer. Whatever it is appears to be missing the head. There does appear to be another leg on the rock top as well. Thanks for you kind assistance. Best Regards, David
  23. Hiya everyone thinking of getting this small piece of amber says there’s a fly in it just wanting to know if it’s real there’s no information on age or that but the seller has sold me a real fossil so a little help would be great thanks
  24. Hiya everyone thinking of purchasing this trilobite a help to say if it’s real would be great thanks
  25. Hiya all recently got this piece of fossil bone the seller was saying it’s plesiosaur but any help from you guys would be great it was purchased at Bristol but I’d imagine it’s from the Jurassic coast
