  1. Help ID with large structure

    Found along the Fundy coast in New Brunswick, Canada. In an area called Rockport. The stone in which this structure is encased is approximately 60cm by 40cm. It would be in the "BP" area of the map I posted. Is this a fossil? and if so, of what? Thank you for looking.
  2. Dinosaur Footprints?

    Good evening to all! Dinosaur Footprints? In Argentina, my daughter discovered some lages of rocks in the middle of the bush, somewhere ... I did not go there. My daughter just sent me these pictures. From my experience, they are natural deformities of the rock, but anyway, I have decided to post here to ascertain what your opinion is. I thank you for all your help. Thank you! @Fossildude19
  3. Found in SW Wisconsin around a small creek bed while metal detecting. If you need any additional pictures let me know. Definitely want to go back and find more.
  4. Is this a baby mosasaur tooth?

    I bought a chunk of sediment from Morroco from a fossil dealer a couple of months ago and I found some shark teeth, shark vertebra and this mosasaur tooth. What’s really interesting is that it’s extremely small. It’s a little bit bigger than my pinkie nail. Could this be a baby mosasaur tooth. (Note that I had some repair done to it.)
  5. I received this matched, 3 piece equine hoof and ankle fossil as a child 30 years ago and recently rediscovered it in a box in the barn. I believe it was discovered in Montana or nothern Idaho pre depression era. They are very heavy. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
  6. I rescued a fish I don’t know...

    I rescued this fossil in the most unlikely place. The trash. I was walking along in a rock shop a couple of days ago looking at some cool meteorites when I noticed a trash can with a rock sticking out of it. I got closer and took it out and saw it had a fossil fish in it! I was completely astounded that someone would throw something away in the garbage! I took it home and showed it to some friends of mine who specialize in fossils. They concluded that it’s real and genuine. The fossil depicts a fossil fish that is oddly twisted and bent for some reason. I think this fossil may be from the Green river formation in Wyoming. The fish also might be a Knightia, but I’m not completely sure. Note there’s a isolated vertebrae from a larger fish near by.
  7. Sea Star Help

    Here’s a real test for the TFF community. This slab of sea stars was part of a collection purchased by a friend and it has no data whatsoever. I’m trying to find possible ID for the 2 types as well as possible location. The matrix is a gray sandstone where not weathered but it weathers to a dark tan.
  8. Unidentifiable shark tooth

    Remember the post I made about the mosasaur tooth? Well I also got a shark tooth to go with it. Unfortunately, I cannot identify what species it is. I’m a lover of sharks but I sometimes have trouble with identification problems with the teeth..
  9. Posterior Megs?

    Hi all, the other day I went out hunting found some really cool stuff, which I'll post soon, but I find these 3 interesting teeth which I think are posterior megs, though I think one (smallest) is more likely than the other two. They were found in Havelock NC.
  10. Is this a favosite?

    I honestly can't say where this fossil came from. As a natural collector of many different things, there are lots of odd items in my house. Since my 7 year old has some interest in fossils and rocks, I've gathered up what I had and put it with her playground finds. In trying to ID our finds, I assumed this was a favosite, but it's not exactly like most pictured on the internet. The tabulae (? the divisions in each tube) aren't very evenly spaced, nor are they flat. The first view seems to show unusual little compartments with tiny openings, but I think the wearing of the fossil is responsible for that appearance. I always took the first view as being the top, but now I wonder if it's the bottom? It would make more sense to me if the floors of each compartment were concave instead of convex. So what say ye, Fossil Forum? Pictures are top, side, bottom, other side
  11. Bone, wood, anything else?

    Hello. I have no idea what it could be, and how old. Looks lie some kind of bone for me. When You touching one another it sounds like ceramic or something like that
  12. Hi! Can anyone help me with identifying this calcaneus bone? It is also archeology find,but I'm not sure if this is from a roe deer,goat or sheep.It is 4,5cm long.But is very similar to all of this contenders.I will post pics now.
  13. Missouri bivalve?

    I found this in eastern Missouri in one of my usual haunts. I normally find lots of brachs, trilobite pieces, bryozoans but this looks like my first bivalve. It has concentric growth rings while being asymmetric with equivalves which leads me to think mollusk not brach. Then it could just be a nodule.
  14. Hello everyone, I found this large trilobite pygidium today which is the largest piece of trilobite I have ever found in the area, the pygidium measuring nearly 2 inches long. Judging by the trilobits I usually find I think the area is Devonian as I have trilobits I've previously found I believe are from eldregops and greenops. The problem with this site is it's imported material from somewhere in upstate new york so I'm not 100% percent sure. Though I believe it's devonian I don't know of any species with a pygidium this size personally so would anymore with more expertise help me find an ID of what species this can belong to, I'd love to know since I can't see myself coming across another one of these in the tiny area I get to look in.
  15. This rock has so many different formations, like it's been glued together. Can someone tell me how this can be melted in several places with such odd formation?
  16. Mosasaurus hoffmani?

    So I found this in a stream in New Jersey. Fossil shark teeth are common, along with Mosasaurs teeth, although they are less common. Dinsosaur bones are a rare occurance in this location. I think it is a Mosasaur tooth fragment and it’s large size (probably over 2 inches if complete) would put it in the range of Mosasaurs hoffmani, a species that has been found in the area but is very rare. It could also be a bone of some sort and not a tooth at all. I was hoping someone with more knowledge on the subject could shed some light on this find.
  17. What is it?

    Things that make you go, huh?? Lol this appears to have some bone fragments, but can't say for sure. Anybody ever see anything like this??
  18. Trilobite ID

    Ok, great success identifying the mystery fish from yesterday. Up next... this beautiful trilobite from places and ages unknown.
  19. Fish ID

    I need the collective help of the TFF community on some identifications. I received a lot of a few fossils to prep and some have no identification. The first is this fish. The skull makes me think gar, but there are no scales. The body seems to have dermal denticles like a shark. This one has me stumped. It is in a thin, layered, limestone of unknown origin.
  20. Bos or red deer part of antler

    Hello to all! I was lucky today to find this! It's some type of horn but I'm not sure from which animal is.It is archeological find.I found many Bos taurus primigenius and Cervus elaphus bones so I'm thinking that this may belong to them.If u know better let me know Hvala!
  21. Not a fossil

    Hello to all! I found this in the the hole which i have made it because of the pottery that i'm searching for.I'm not sure what it is,looks like a premolar 2 from a deer (Cervus elaphus)...Am i right?
  22. ID please

    I have been trying to get the sandstone off this to try to figure out what it is. Anyone happen to know??
  23. Rock garden or museum

    Heres another one I was going to put in my sidewalk, but wanted to make sure that I didnt have something. South central kansas
  24. Kansas tooth??

    I found this in Kansas. I picked it up because it was a cool rock. I'm just learning in here, but trying. I was going to use it in a rock sidewalk, but thought I would just make sure it wasn't a tooth or something first
  25. Coral cluster?

    I found this fossil a couple years ago in Michigan. I unfortunately can't remember where exactly. It seems to be a collection of smaller fossils.
