  1. Hi all! Yesterday I visited Formosa Reef here in Ontario (Amherstburg Formation, Lower Devonian), and I found these weird circular imprints on a few rocks - does anyone know what they are? @Kane Thanks a bunch! Monica photo with ruler for scale: close up photos:
  2. Help ID - shell imprints, NY

    Hi! I found some rocks with shell imprints in a creek in Tompkins county, NY, USA. I understand that the fossils found there are usually from Devonian period. My guess is that it is a brachiopod. If yes, is there a way to out more precisely what kind, and to narrow its age? I have a very sketchy knowledge about the subject so any help is appreciated. Thanks! 1.
  3. Small imprint

    Hi all Found this small stone amongst the gravel on the driveway with an imprint from (I'm guessing) a sort of little sea creature. Any ideas?
  4. Fossil imprint of???

    So when I found the encrusted bivalve, I found this in the same roadcut in what I believe is Bethany falls limestone in Kansas City. It has define spikes/spines/other with softer margins and I simply don't know. there are no other complete fossils near it but there is this imprint-whatever that is ?? Any help or thoughts, as always, appreciated! Thanks! Bone
  5. Fossilized imprint scales Missouri?

    Can anyone help me out with this one, found on broken large shelf in seep spring run lighter lines are raised but middle of imprint is recessed with a slight stippled texture...each "square" is roughly 2"×2"....ideas???
  6. Tusk shell imprint

    Again from my "museum". This one was found in Warren county outside St. Louis and as close as I could tell at the time, it appeared to be an imprint of a "tusk shell". Guess it could also be curved nautaloid? Haven't changed that opinion, but haven't advanced my knowledge as much as I should have either! Thanks for any thoughts!! Bone
  7. Fossil? imprint /mold type not sure

    It has it all around it an on the ends this one was mostly covered. It might be 2” long an half inch tall on ends an almost a inch tall at tallest point for size. Some shell it looks. I found it in my aunts flowerbeds she had bought rock in 1969 to cover 7 beds. So when I weeded them I'd dig out interesting ones. She's had the same rocks since then. She'd have the rocks cleaned an put back . Kodak, TN. I thought it was the most interesting one. Thought to share. Thank you.
  8. What is this

    Hi, my sister found this on the beach of Hunstanton, Norfolk last year whilst on holiday We are unsure on what it is, but we think it may be an imprint of some kind of anemone or coral, not sure though The whole rock is concave and about 4.5cm across I will attach a close up of the pattern in the replies
  9. Heyo! Found on the river banks of Humber river in Toronto, Canada I came across this rock this weekend and I was not sure if it was anything special or just a peculiar shaped rock. After some hesitation I decided to pick it up just in case. It has a very distinct wave looking shape to it and the texture on the 'wavy' surface seems rather fossil-esque but I wasn't sure as the cross section doesn't seem to show much of anything. If I had to take a guess I would say its either a coral or maybe its an imprint of some-kind? Let me know what you think If its anything worth keeping or just random rocks: /\ These two pictures show the general shape and size of the piece. /\ These two pictures show the close-up texture on the surface of both sides. /\ This is the side/cross section. Thanks for the help! -Em
  10. I found this years ago as well. I cant remember exactly where. I think maybe by the lesser slave lake area. There is some kind of imprint on the rock. Does anyone know what it is from?
  11. I'm a fairly novice preparator and I was wondering if some of you more experienced folks could help me out a bit. I am working on a dipleura that unfortunately broke apart upon extraction. Some fragments of the pygidium were lost. I have the imprint and was considering casting the missing parts in plaster or something ideally reversible. My goal is to turn this fossil into a nice display piece. There are also some large voids in the matrix I would like to fill in. I've never done anything of this sort to a fossil before and I was hoping for some guidance on materials, techniques, etc. I have attached a couple of photos of the areas I would like to repair.
  12. Anomalocaris body fossils

    Does anyone have any fossils of, or with anomalocaris BODIES? I'm interested in seeing what they look like. I did searches for them and they all look so random, without any features except for the overlapping ends. Even the beautiful full-animal fossils have bodies like that. Did they always fossilize so unimpressively?
  13. Blue Ammonite imprint?

    Good day everyone, The pictures below show from what i know an ammonite fossil imprint, but what is it? How can it be that it is such deep blue color? As shown in the second picture the fossil is about 1 cm long, it was found in Aguas de Madeiros, Portugal. Any insight would be greatly appriciated!
  14. Ginkgo Fossils or “The Snoopy Dance”?

    Uncertain if this is from Ocean City or Tel Aviv (minor difference!)... life has been a bit chaotic, and sadly some of my rocks were moved from where they were well organized. (House cleaning to make room so my returning, adult children can have “their rooms back”... jeepers!) Avoiding humans for 5 minutes last night, I noticed three interesting rocks I have not shared before. (I will refer to this as #1 of the 3). Very small but fascinating to me, with both a clear fossil and a clear, smaller imprint, immediately next to the fossil. There are numerous possible other fossils and imprints “around the rock and just below the surface.” Did I ID correctly? Is it possibly from anywhere other than Maryland/Ocean? Possible age? The largest, deepest of the fossils appears to be either Ginko or “The Snoopy Happy Dance” (And.... I hopefully receive a new magnification “toy” today that will literally “make a huge difference in EVERYTHING!”) Thank you- Karen
  15. Do fossils bend?

    Ive seen a couple "fossils" recently, that have a feature that makes me wonder if they're authentic. Especially because the fossil on one looks more like it's been just stained on the rock surface, than having any actual impression. My question on here though, is if fossils can continue over creases on a rock, that appear to be a break in the level/time (the crooked line going along the underside of the apparent appendage). It's not an actual clear separate level, so I know a fossil could lay across an inconsistency on the original surface, but this one looks more like a break, so I'm wondering if this angle is possible.
  16. What are these

    So this is at Texas Tarrant County near a large pond. Not sure if the tooth is crocodile, fish, marine dinosaur or small mammel. The rock with circles on it I'm guessing is an imprint of a shell. And the other one I think is bone in Rock not sure if it's like a tooth if so I guess bovine or triceratops but I'm not sure if it's a recent bone or a bone from the dinosaur era (or if it's a bone at all). Also a general question of how do you know if something is a modern bone or dinosaur bone, I found some level surface and you can see the face of the bone, the rest is in the ground and it's near a pond. If anyone has answers to these questions that will be great. Excuse my lack of knowledge in these areas I'm new and I've just started with no current knowledge in dinosaurs.
  17. Trilobite Identification Help

    Hey guys I need some help identifying these possible trilobites. Any information about which part of the trilobite the specimen is, species, etc would be appreciated. All of these specimens were found in Cincinnati, ohio in rocks from the Ordovician period. These 3 similar looking fossils are about 1 centimeter in length. This fossil is 3 centimeters in length. Showing front and back. This trilobite impression is 6 centimeters in length and 4.5 centimeters in width.
  18. Theropod imprint 200myo Private Connecticut river valley real or fake
  19. Possible Crinoid imprint

    OK - here's another one from Cincinnati, possible Crinoid imprint?
  20. Time for the second batch! Hopefully these should be a little more interesting than the medley of corals from two days ago, but there are still a few corals to be identified. At any rate, I have a weird imprint fossil here that I'm not sure of. Probably from the Michigan/Indiana area like the others. Any ideas? (1/8)
  21. Fossil poop and Fossil imprint?

    Hi! Found this today in Great Morava river ( Serbia )...Looks like some sort of maybe fossilized imprint of something? And also second,not sure,but looks like a fossilized poop.I will post now pics:
  22. Fossil Skin Imprint in TN

    Found this on our property in TN. It is below a waterfall in an area where the Cumberland Plateau meets the Sequatchie Valley, alongside a cliff. Reminds me Ectenosaurus skin imprint I've seen pictures of. Any chance it is a fossilized reverse dinosaur skin imprint? The squares are holes or indentations, not raised areas. they are mostly rectangular and have a pattern to them. There are small "etched" lines that create a grid surrounding the divots. It seems to symetrical to have been carved out by water motion. I am interested in everyone's thoughts.
  23. Possible Batrachopus Track

    From the album FreeRuin's Finds

    It looks the part of a Batrachopus footprint (missing a toe) with the proper size and location but I cannot say for sure. Hartford Basin Portland Formation Western Massachusetts
  24. Asymmetrical Ripple Marks

    From the album FreeRuin's Finds

    Marks left by the movement of a river or stream in the early Jurassic. Hartford Basin Portland Formation Massachusetts
  25. Imprint found

    Hi, I'm new here and just wondered if anyone has an idea of what this is? I have no knowledge in this field as this is not my area of science. I just thought it would be interesting to find out what I have stumbled upon. Thank you in advance.
