  4. 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

    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!
  8. 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!

  13. Bones found South New Jersey

    Hi all! I'm just curious is anyone has an idea what animal this is. It was found in my backyard which is wooded with oaks and pines. Location is South New Jersey. It's a pretty heavily wooded area. I'm thinking maybe a fox? I also found near the bones a black feather which may have come from a crow or vulture. Thanks everyone!

  15. Big Brook NJ / August

    Found this in August of this year in Big Brook NJ. What is it?
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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!
  20. 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
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
  24. 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)
