  1. Hi everyone! This tooth was found at Perú, at Nazca desert zone. I'm supposing that is a Megalodon tooth but maybe, you experts, could give me some more extra information about kind of Megalodon, size or age... I don't know really, but my son is asking me about and some more expert information will help me a lot ;-). The size for rule is in centimeters. Thank you very much for your kindness!
  2. Who was the former owner for this tooth?

    Hi everyone! With my 6 years old son we have bought this precious tooth in a prestigious shop at Barcelona. They have tell us that is a Mosasaurus tooth, but I think not. It looks more a Spinosaurus tooth, maybe (sorry if I'm talking absurdity, I'm totally newbie...). The teller at shop was not the usual one, and it was not possible to ask him more information. Please, may you help me to identify the correct "former owner" for this tooth? My son and I will be very grateful for that. I'm posting some photos for the piece. The first one is from the other pieces at shop, that we didn’t bought. The size for rule is in centimeters. Thanks a lot for your kindness!
  3. New to fossils and seeking to find out if the fossil is a legit dinosaur before buying. Not much info on the piece
  4. Hi all! I've always found fossils to be quite interesting but never took the time to really get into them so I'm useless at identifying them. Well, recently I went to Galveston beach and found this item washed up after a storm. It's small (about 2cm across) and feels rather fragile/thin. I've never seen anything like it besides an ammonite but then those are always cast in rock, I believe, and this feels just like a fragile shell that I could probably crush if I accidentally stood on it. This may just be some sort of strange shell, but some googling hasn't led me to anything other than the ammonite. Is this a fossil at all? If so, what type? I appreciate you taking your time to help out a curious mind! - Mia

  6. Need help identifying please!

    Found this in the bottom of a creek bed in Cleburne Texas. I think it's bone. Maybe a fin or a tiny rib cage. Anybody have any ideas? I forgot to put a comparison next to it but the fossil is quarter size. The entire piece is about 2 quarters in length.
  7. Fossil ID: Petrified wood?

  10. Not identified lot

    Hello Sorry to say but i dont have experience in fossiles. Anyone able to identify these have all my thanks. I live in a mining town in Serbia. I was hiking and i stumbled upon a strange stone. It was the bottom one. I took a look around soon i found two more, the one above it and the one to the right. Those 3 pieces were the outer layer that fell of from the one on the left. The one on the top is different from all. Not far from there i found two more. The left one On this picture it reminds me of a big pepper cut in half since it has that coloring all the way around but inner. The structure is similar to the left one on the previous picture. The right one On this picture on the top there is a hole like change of materia. On the other two picture there can be seen some lines on it.
  11. Bone id

    I found this bone inside of a concretion. I’m afraid to break it if I chip the concretion off so I have been using water to get it off. It’s very slow though. I need help identifying what kind of bone fossil this is. Thank you. It seems to all be attached inside of this concretion.

  14. Fife Scotland mystery?

  15. Any idea what this is? hoof?

    Hi everyone, I was hoping someone could identify this or tell me if its something interesting. I was digging a bush out of my yard and hit it with a shovel, sounded much different than a rock so I washed it off. It was found in clay but this soil/ clay mix was brought in by a truck from somewhere after the house was built to level the backyard. I thought it was a very unusual piece to be found in the yard. Any ideas? Let me know if any other pictures would help. Thanks Chuck
  16. Possible Fossil Egg - Scotland

    Happy Easter to everybody and hopefully you can help identify the following: Found a 2 " egg shaped object, Penicuik, Midlothian, Scotland in a field which has had a small hole previously drilled on one side. The egg object is hollow inside and the shell is about 2mm thick and feels like solid rock and sounding when tapped. The item has various minute cracking across its surface as shown by the attached photographs. I have also tried to show the hole and depth of cavity using a dart inserted into the object. It appears too clean an object to be a fossilized egg, however, how did the cracking and cavity occur if it is indeed a rock? Any help appreciated and stay safe, regards, Paul (newbie)

  21. Unknown Fossil--Please help identify

    I found this fossil several years ago while I was looking for shark teeth along the bank of the Potomac. The exposed cliffs in the area are part of the Nanjemoy formation, and the fossils I find are usually Miocene or Eocene. I have no idea what this fossil is (Maybe a tooth?). I figured that I would finally get around to posting this in hopes that someone on this forum can help identify it for me. More pictures available upon request. Thanks, Christopher

  24. Tooth??

    A friend of mine in SC who collects Native American artifacts was traded this item. To me, it resembles a fossilized tooth with a single root. Thanks for any insight!
  25. Newbie

    Hi all, complete newbie here! I have an old fossil I've dragged around with me for decades but have been unable to identify it. I've googled images and still haven't found anything like it. From what I have found, it came from a generally Cretaceous area in southern Oklahoma, south and slightly east of Ardmore in Love County. The landowner gave us permission to surface hunt (my boys were trying to earn badges for Boy Scouts) The section I picked up was the only loose part of a roughly 4 or 5 foot long "trunk" that was still encased in rock (hardened red clay), so the short section is the only part we could get. It does not look like any petrified wood I've been able to find, but more like a reed or rush, only very big. Tried to get close enough to see the longitudinal grooves as well as the bands around the "trunk" but I'm not sure the resolution is going to be sharp enough to show up. It reminds me of a giant stalk of celery the way the grooves run down the length! Sorry for the vagueness, we found it about 35 years ago. Am hoping someone will recognize this. Thanks in advance!
