  3. Help with identification

    Hi, I wondered if anyone could please help with the identification of this bone. It was found on St Anne's Beach in the UK. It has a claw like prominence midway down the shaft. The bone on approx 10.5cm long. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you.
  4. Hey everyone, I am looking for any reccomended websites or databases that can help me identify several invertebrate specimens in my collection. Specimens range from ammonites, echinoderms, brachiopods, molluscs etc. I have locations where most were found or acquired, but I would like to get a species ID on them at least. Morphology tends to blur at times depending on the sample. Any references or ideas?
  5. Shark Tooth Identification Help

    Hi, I recently bought this tooth from a friend, but I am uncertain which species it belongs to. The root is very thin with great white characteristics, but the lack of serrations on the blade is more like a mako. My best guess is that it is a Giant White Shark (Charcharodon Plicatitis). It measure 2.75 inches. The last 2 photos show the tooth in comparison to a Great White tooth on the right side and a Mako Shark tooth on the left side of the tooth in question. What do you believe it is? Thank you for helping me out.

  12. Shark Tooth ID Needed

    Hi there, Just hoping to get identification of this shark tooth I found in the ocean of Venice Beach, Florida. Hopefully these pictures aren’t too bad. Thanks for any help!
  13. While Hiking a creek in Upstate New York (Binghamton) I came across this unique find, looks different than anything I have came across before. Looks as if it's composed of several types of minerals along with different types of fossils. Seems to be very dense, with no loose or flaking material. I'm very interested in the main body where it looks as if the material is twisting and curling and gives it a fluid type of look. I am asking the community to please help me identify what this may be composed of and from what era. Thank you. - Dan
  14. Any chance of an ID?

    I recently bought a mixed lot of fossils and this was included and was wondering if anyone could help with identifying it possibly. If it’s even a fossil, maybe some kind of tooth or? just not sure at all about it, I sadly have no idea of origin either and was unable to get any more info. Just hoping it’s not anything too strange . Thanks in advance!

    I got a few fossils that I needed help identifying. One is a strange heart shape and appears to be bone. There's also a vertebrae and didn't know if it was a fish or shark vertebrae.
