  1. Big Brook NJ / August

    Found this in August of this year in Big Brook NJ. What is it?
  2. Need help identifying tooth

    Hi! I was walking along the beach on Topsail Island in North Carolina searching for sharks teeth after a storm when I found what appears to be a tooth. The strange part is that it closely resembles human teeth. I can’t seem to find anything like it in my books or online and I am trying to figure out what species it could possibly be. It’s about 1 millimeter long, if the ruler isn’t very clear in the photo.
  3. Hello everyone! I’ve just stumbled across this forum, and I’m in desperate need of some (hopefully) easy identification! When I was a little girl, I was absolutely OBSESSED with sharks, so my father brought me to a man who collects shark teeth, he very kindly gave me a small box of them, including a small juvenile megalodon tooth. This was in about 2009, and sadly I don’t have any information about them, I have no contact with the man anymore, and no idea of where they could be from, as I live in Sheffield, in the middle of the UK. If anyone could please even take a loose guess at these, I would be so thrilled! These have a lot of sentimental value to me, and I do apologise for the quality, I tried my best but we don’t have any good cameras.
  4. Hi again. So yesterday I found this at walton on the naze. Looks like some fossil shells and fossil wood inside? Would like some thoughts on if I should prep this or is it a waste of time? It caught my eye as quite a big piece and I can see some different shell,s or something through the surface. I'm not sure if they are recent shells or fossilised?I'm assuming fossils as where it was collected with all other fossil material around it.
  5. Found this yesterday.

    Hi again. So yet again was back to walton on the naze yesterday. Found this interesting piece among other things. Is it a worn vertebrea possible crocodile? Any help appreciated many thanks!
  6. Saurid Skull, Croatian Coast

    Hello Sorry I'm new I just registered to find some answers Yesterday while searching for some fossilized clams or marine stuff I came across this little beauty. It's about 7 cm wide and some 5 cm high. I found it at the Dalmatian Coast in Croatia. Anybody knows what it could be? And, what do I do with it now? Do I carry it to a museum? Kind regards
  7. Hi again everyone. I am trying to identify what this is. Any help much appreciated. Found at walton on the naze in the UK just over a week ago.
  8. Is this an insect or fly?

    Hi I found this at walton on the naze in the uk around a week ago. If I remember rightly it was among the london clay. I thought it was wood so put it in my bag but After drying out and leaving for a few days I've noticed what looks like a fly or insect or maybe a fish scale? I'm not even sure if this piece is wood or bone or what? Any help much appreciated thank you.
  9. Morrocco Trilobite Identification

    I bought this morrocco Trilobite from an antique shop recently, and I have had a tough time identifying it. I believe the cephalon might be broken, so that complicates matters. Any help would be appreciated.
  10. Possible triassic track?

    I found this near the 476 turnpike where they tore up all the ground and exposed the New Brunswick Formation. This formation is triassic. I went to a dump site where the construction company took all the rock. Is this possibly some sort of trace fossil from a lizard or sphenodontid? (If you neer to see it better flip your phone or device upside down)
  11. mississippian fossilerous limestone

    Can anyone help me identify the vast array of specimens on this slab? I see some rugosa.
  12. I have no clue what this is. But I do know that it's middle devonian.
  13. Hey guys new here. Bought this item at an antique store and it looks authentic at some points but not at others. The amount of detail makes me think it is too real to be a replica. Let me know what you think.
  14. Help identify tooth

    Need some help identifying this tooth I found the other day. I thought it was a horse at first but the molar pattern is a bit different and it doesn’t seem to be as wide as a horse. Any thoughts?
  15. Croc skin or Turtle

    Two sides have different appearance. 40mm long, 3mm thick. Croc or turtle skin?
  16. Please help identify

    Is 5 cm in length. Has column looking structure around perimeter.
  17. Vertebra maybe?

    Could it be a vertebra? 5mm
  18. Coprolite of some sort?

    Could it be a coprolite? 5mm
  19. New to Forum

    Can anyone identify some of these? Thanks
  20. A family member had this sitting next to their fireplace. I am generally clueless, but I'll try and give you as much information as I can. This was found partially buried in central Michigan in a field. There's a lake in the general area. Useful details: Generally bowling ball sized. About 35lb / 15kg, 12" (300mm) or so in the longer dimension. Concrete like feeling to it. It's non-ferrous. For all I know it was some junk leftover from someone pouring a sidewalk, that happened to take an interesting form. Can anyone point me in a good direction of what this is? Let me know if there's any more details that would help, and I can try to answer your question. Slightly bigger images in the imgur link I put below. https://imgur.com/a/SKTFon2
  21. Help identify shark tooth

    So I found this tooth sifting through all the little extras from my fossil trip to Florida, it doesn’t look like any of the other common bull sharks, lemons etc. I think it is a baby megalodon but I’m not sure, it is serrated but a little worn, it’s much wider and not as narrow/pointy as a typical bull. Thoughts?
  22. Possible megalodon tooth in NJ?

    The grey tooth on the right is a small posterior megalodon tooth found in the peace river Florida. The copper tooth was found in a very shallow creek part of big brook NJ. Is it possible that a meg could have swam farther north like modern great whites do during a split time when the water level overlapped the big brook area and dropped it? I’m still new at identifying teeth but they seem VERY very similar
  23. EGGceptional or a SHAMrock?

    I’m new to this forum so I’ll start out by saying HI y’all...need some help from y’all in identifying this wanna-be bowling ball...Dino egg or no Dino egg? I found this out-in-the-middle of nowhere outside of Wimberley Texas....it would be cool if this was an egg but I’m not gonna get EGGcited or put all my eggs into 1 basket...ok ok I won’t “crack” any more lame jokes...thank y’all for your
  24. Fossil found In Cuba

    I found this fossil in Guantanamo, Bay, Cuba. It was in the wall of a road cutout. I’ve looked online and been unable to find any as large. If anyone can tell me more information about it, that would be great. The hinges are intact and working. Thank you
  25. In need of help identifying

    Hello there. I am quite a beginner to fossil hunting and would like some help on identifying one’s that I found today on the shore of Lake Michigan in New Buffalo, Michigan. I am aware that some could be rocks that I may have mistaken for fossils. Like I said, I’m new to this but would appreciate any of the help that I could get. Thank you.
