  6. Ammonite ID needed

    A friend of mine gave this to me along with some other random geological specimens. It was from a collection he inherited, and he doesn't know where it came from. Just trying to get an idea of what this ammonite is called and and maybe what period it's from.
  7. Hey all! First time poster. Found a few fossils along the Milwaukee River in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Looking online, it appears this area was a Devonian Reef. I don't have a lot of experience in fossils besides plants, so any ID or commentary is helpful. A few of these I just found as pieces in big piles along a rock formation, I tried to put up a ruler for scale. For the one piece in situ, I didn't have anything handy, but it wasn't more than a few cm across. Thanks!

    Found this in the lake macquarie area. I know its a long shot but is this a fossil or just a concretion or something else geological? P.s. just ask for more pics. I can only upload one due to limitations.
  10. What species of trilobite is this?

    Hello everybody, This is far from a complete specimen but it is still one of my favorite fossils because its the only trilobite i've ever found. But let's get to the point shall we, I cant recall where the fossil was found. The trilobite is around 9 cm tall. Hoping ýou guys can shed some light on what species of trilobite it is, thanks in advance!
  11. Please help with bone id

    Hello, I recently acquired this from an estate sale but it came with very little information. It was simply labeled "prehistoric leg bone." I know absolutely nothing about this type of stuff and I was wondering if anybody out there may have an idea of what this could be. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time.
  12. Need help identifying a oddly shaped fossil

    Hi Everyone, I found this fossil in Bearreraig Bay, Skye, Scotland. The fossil is quite heavy for its size which im guesing is because of the stone that surrounds most of it. The specimen is about 10 cm tall and the top is just over 2 cm wide. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
  13. Hello, I was wondering if anyone can help identify this bone my family found while digging a foundation for a new home? It was found 13 feet down in a glacial drif in Northern Minnesota. We are quite confident the land has never been touched or altered prior to our digging. Thank you in advance for any help! Happy Thanksgiving!
  14. I found this one at the Jurassic Coast along side some other fossils. The fossil is about 2.5 cm wide and is heavier than it looks (tried a magnet but it had no effect on it). The second picture is a close up of a crack at the side (top right on the first picture), from what i could make out it looked like pyrite which is most likely becuase i also found a pyritised ammonite on the same beach. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
  15. Hey everyone. I need help for this one.I found these two verts this Summer and honestly i don't know from what type of animal they are.They are archeological finds btw,also this other smaller bone..If anyone is willing to help somehow it would be great Thanks
  16. Unknown trace fossil burrow

    Here is a fossil shell I found on a fairly recent trip to big Brook nj, towards the right there is a burrow that looks very straight and in the end of one some kind of dark conical figure is located, not sure what it is, any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
  17. Fossil Bone or Not?

    Found this on the shores of Torrey Pines State Park one day. Thought it was a strangely shaped marine rock, but then realized it may be a bone fossil fragment. What do you think?
  18. Amber inclusion, seed?

    Hello, could anybody help me with identification of this piece poping out of the amber? It's 5mm (0,2 inch) long and at first sight it looks like a seed. I don't know where is this piece of amber from. Thanks for any help.
  19. Hello, recently purchased a bear paw from an online store. It was advertised as 20% restored from an old collection. The paw seems coated or painted with something and I am trying to figure out what it is. There are a few chips where it is yellow tanish underneath the "coating". Last picture is theirs and the rest I took. Thanks for the help in advance.
  20. T Rex? Please Identify This Tooth

    Hey everyone, Can you please identify this tooth. It was found in the Hell Creek Formation And is 0.42 inches long. I think it is T Rex, but can’t be sure. Please Help! Thanks! -FossilsandScience
  21. Big Bone with Weird marking on it

    Another Bone Valley Florida find, Peace River, Polk county, Hawthorn group. This large weirdly-shaped bone has a strange (to me) marking/pattern on it. Is this a big gator bone maybe? (it's the big "crab claw" shaped bone on the upper right). Second photo shows the opposite side with my hand for scale. Thanks!
  22. Peace River, Partial Jaw with Teeth

    These pics aren't the best. I forgot to put a scale object in the photo. I hurriedly decided to shoot these because the setting sun was providing some good lighting. This piece is small, about 1.5 inches in overall length. There is an alligator scute in the background for rough approx. size comparison. I am not sure if this is fossilized, but the teeth look familiar to me. Is this a juvenile of something larger? Thanks! (Peace River, Florida, Bone Valley formation, Polk county, Hawthorn group)
  23. Fossil shark teeth ID

    just found my camcorder so here are my first pics. i am unaware of where these come from and sorry if these pics are bad my camcorder is really old XD
  24. Found this nicely-fossilized bone and I can't decide whether it's deer or something else. I seem to recall finding one similar to this a few seasons back, but I can't find it now and I cannot find any reference to it (I don't think I was posting here then). Does anyone know what critter this bone belongs to?
  25. Label help

    Hi all. I really like to have everything to be labeled, but I have collected from locations that have multiple formations and ages. How would you go about labeling when there is 2-4 potential formations or ages? Thanks in advance
