  1. Fossil ID from Calvert Cliffs trip

    This is the first time I’m posting for help with an i.d., and I have to say that getting good pics is harder than I thought! On June 1st, I found this fossil at Calvert Cliffs State Park while “panning” in the surf, and I can’t identify it. It doesn’t have the root like a shark’s tooth, is far more conical in shape, but it has the serrated edge. Would love some input. thanks!
  2. Carcharodontosaurus tooth ?

    Hello ! i bought this tooth for quite a while for a very (i mean very very ) good price and i think this tooth may belong to baby carcharodontosaurus ? wound love to see you guy 's opinion ! kind regard.
  3. Hello! My name is Raihan & I’m from Indonesia. I’m kinda new at this shark teeth collecting, I have several teeth & unfortunately I’m a little bit confused about their id. Can anyone tell me about what kind of shark teeth are these? All of them were found in Madura island, Indonesia. Here are the questions. 1) Are these upper & lower teeth from a bull shark? Or it could be from another Carcharhinus sp.? 2) Are these lemons? And if it so, is it N.acutidens? 3) Does anyone know the exact species on these fossilized lemon shark teeth? Thanks!
  4. Vertebra found in Savannah (shark tooth island)

    I found this on shark tooth island in Savannah Georgia any idea as to what mammal it could belong to?
  5. I purchased this tooth at a fossil shop while visiting canada and was just wondering if it was in fact a real tooth from a spinosaurus. It doesnt quite look like other teeth I've seen on the internet so I'm very unsure.
  6. Bone?

    Hello! Is it part of bone? Scale - mm. Neogene, Miocene. Western Ukraine.
  7. Minnesota - possible fossil tooth?

    Searching the gravel driveway for a missing piece of a telescope (at night...), I pocketed an odd rock. In the light of day it looked to me like it could be a tooth. I'm located in McLeod Co., Minnesota, not at all known for fossils, but the glaciers have brought us a few surprises that show up from time to time. Fossil Forum members helped me ID a piece of petrified wood from the same gravel drive 2 weeks ago. Or maybe it's just a rock. It has several cracks or grooves that run most of the way from the potential "crown" to the "root." Thoughts? BTW, that's a marshmallow I used to stabilize the rock to display the possible "crown" and "root." Later I ate the marshmallow.
  8. Posted this a few days but I didn’t have appropriate glue on hand. Now that it’s together, it definitely seems more tubular. Maybe a very weathered limb bone?
  9. A Chinese tooth

    Hi everyone, I just received this tooth, it is clearly an upper carnassial of a carnivore, it should come from Gansu, China. Can anyone help me with the identification? Based on it's appearance and what the seller said to me I think it's from the huge mustelid Eomellivora
  10. Basement recovery part 1 Dino Eggs

    I found these "dinosaur eggs?" stashed away in my fathers old basement. where they came from I do not know, possibly Morocco. if anyone has any insight that would be great! im sorry I did not take 6 different shots of each angle. if the pictures are inadiqent Ill try and dig them out of storage. Thank you!
  11. Minnesota ID - possible petrified wood?

    Hello - I'm a new member of the Fossil Forum. I'm excited to learn more here. I would like to find out if the more experienced folks think this is petrified wood? I found this rock in our gravel driveway in McLeod County. It looks like water-worn wood to me, and seems to have a clear grain to it. It is about 1 1/2 inches long. I have found several similar rocks while running within 3 miles of my home along gravel roads (usually I pick them up mistakenly thinking they're agates). The Science Museum of MN positively identified one of them (not pictured here) as petrified wood. This one, however, doesn't have the same agate-like sheen. Thank you!
  12. Here’s another bone. Thinking it’s a ceratopsian skull part, but can’t match it to anything. Thanks! Edit: Now with more bones! The overall shape is arched with central canal.
  13. Hey everyone, I am new to the forum, but have been searching for and collecting shark teeth for years. I found this tooth earlier today, but didn’t know for sure what kind of shark it was. My first thought was a Great White but it is smaller than some of my other great white teeth I have found or seen. It does have serrated edges. Any help is appreciated and thanks in advance!
  14. Graptolite help Please

    Hello Found some I believe to be Graptolites and would like to be able to ID them better in the field. Is there a guide available or even a good book anyone might recommend for this. Attached pictures are what I think are graptolites but would like to verify. Surface finds Thank you all for the help Tom
  15. Lance Formation Bone

    Unknown bone from Lance Formation. Thanks in advance!
  16. I've recently been snooping around Early Jurassic Towaco formation exposures in Northern New Jersey. Although I didn't find much, I found this which looks like it could be something but I can't tell what it is. Any help would be great. Thanks!
  17. What are the characteristics of a White River turtle shell that can differentiate between Stylemys and Gopherus (Testudo)?
  18. Need help identifying a Devonian fossil.

    Also found this today. Anybody have an idea what this might be apart of? Thanks
  19. Lake Erie fossil id help

    Found in lake erie ontario, 10 inches long. Any help would be super welcome.
  20. Folks, I found this fossil mollusk from a shale deposit in Northeastern Oklahoma. The shale is of Pennsylvanian age (probably Chanute formation), and contains other marine fossils. I would appreciate any help with ID. Best wishes.
  21. A few ID's

    Just wondering if anyone may have any idea as to what these are, found today in Wenlock Edge, which is majorly silurian limestone. The first five are all of the same piece. Secondly - longshot, but could tis be a tooth? And lastly, is the small spiral, a sort of Gastropod? TIA
  22. Unknown Russian echinoid

    What do you think it is? The definition I got on the local forum is "conditionally classified as Plegiocidaris" Guides/handbooks on Moscow Mezozoic (unfortunately mostly outdated) list 5 genera: Echinobrissus, Rhabdocidaris, Acrocidaris, Holectypus and Cidaris. For this and neighboring stratigraphic zones Echinobrissus and Rhabdocidaris only, mainly the latter. Both are defined by spines, sometimes isolated plates
  23. Mosasaur or Thoracosaurus

    Hello all, Recently my girlfriend and I went up to Ramanessin in New Jersey for a fossil hunt. After a while I came across this tooth! Upon trying to identify it I couldn't exactly figure out whether it was a crocodile (Thoracosaurus) or a mosasaur from the area. The tooth is more ovular in cross section. If more pictures are needed I can send them. Im leaning more towards Thoracosaurus. Thanks!
  24. Hi! I just returned home from the Venice Beach area in Florida and I was curious if anyone one could tell me what these broken fragments could have been. I’m a newbie here so any other recommendations on how to identify are welcomed thanks in advance
  25. Is this anything special?

    I found this fossil while collecting rocks for a landscaping project. It was in Gasconade County Missouri along the Dry Fork Creek (if that helps at all). I washoping to go back and look for more fossils or more of this fossil in the fall when the critters go away again.
