  1. Bone fossil found on beach

    This is my first post to this site and I thank you beforehand for any help you can give me with the ID of this piece of bone. I have been vacationing on Little Gasparilla Island for the last years. I am fascinated with the shark's teeth and other things that wash up. I am a surgical PA having both worked in Neurosurgery and now spine with orthopedics. I found this on my most recent trip and recognized it as bone immediately. It is about 3x2x2". The top and bottom appear to be cortical bone and the middle cancellous bone. I ran it by a few surgeon friends and we came up with nada.
  2. On Saturday, I made the trip down to Charleston to hunt for fossils on one of several islands in the Charleston area on which the dredge spoils pulled out of the harbor are deposited. I drove down cautiously optimistic, as I knew that there should be fossils to be found, as the harbor cuts down deep enough to hit the right formation. Even then, my expectations were absolutely blown out of the water. The trip was an unmitigated success, as shown by the photo below. The picture above shows my haul for the whole 4 hours I spent picking over the piles and fields of dredge spoils. One thing I've noticed about fossils from this site is that while I'm finding more and bigger teeth than I might on searching the Summerville creeks, the overall quality seems to be lower, with teeth of similar size being more damaged than their inland counterparts. I'd attribute this to the rough journey from the bottom of the harbor to where I found them. Another interesting thing I've noticed is that I found porportionally way more shark vertebrae and extinct tiger shark teeth than I usually do, and I don't know why this would be. Here I've got some of the specimens I found that I couldn't identify myself. The first shark tooth has two cusps, and the second has an oddly shaped root. The third object I really don't know what it is. If I had to guess I'd say its probably from an invertebrate, maybe a coral. The fourth object is a mammal tooth of some sort, but I don't know what kind. I've included some of my other interesting finds in this shot. Up top is a partial dolphin vertebra, on the left is an interestingly shaped fish vertebra, in the middle is an absolutely tiny C. angustidens tooth, and on the right is one of the best C. carcharias teeth I've found to date. This is my number one find of this trip. I've found some meg chunks and a half tooth in the Summerville creeks, but this is my first nice whole meg. It's 2.9375 inches, but if not for that tip ding it'd probably be around 3.125 inches. I'm not too worked up about it, since it's most likely feeding damage rather than a scar from the dredger. When I came across it, only the very tip of the root was sticking out of the ground, and if it wasn't for the smallest glint of enamel visible, I would have walked past it. I had just picked up a very similar looking and dissapointing meg corner, so when I stooped to grab it I didn't have the hightest expectations. It was really something else when I popped it loose and pulled it out of the ground. It's more than just finding a nice tooth, it's the recognition of the value of the work it's taken to find it. The hours of research, wading through muddy creeks, braving the sun, the tide, the mosquitoes (which by the way there were a lot of at this site). It's not so much that it's paid off, because there's no one end goal to this hobby. It's more of a journey for the journey's sake. The gratification here comes from knowing you're on the right path.
  3. Was this rock underwater ?

    In our cottage in an island there are these big rocks that were dug up from the ground when we first built our house but there is one rock in particular that looks like it may have been underwater at some point and I sure am interested in the possibility of maybe finding some fossils, what's your opinion ?does it look like it may have been underwater? And could this area have fossils? Thanks
  4. No idea about what this is.

    Recently re discovered a bunch of these things that we got from the Canary Islands. They were all washed up on the beaches and they do not look stricktly geological to me and looks kind of like some kind of modern calcified organism or trace of one. I stumbled upon a book at some point, I believe it was called Darwin's Fossils that said these were some kind of remains of algae that have fossilized, but when I looked that up there was no evidence I could find supporting this claim, maybe someone else knows what these things could be? Any new insight is appreciated, Thank you.
  5. Help for identification

    Help for identification? I have nearly zero experience. Thanks.
  6. Help ID Fossils From Manitoulin Island

    Hello, I just got back from my first fossil hunting trip and am hoping to get a little help to ID some of my finds. These were found on Manitoulin Island off HWY 6 & New England Rd, I`m sure a few people on here have already been there. I didn`t do any digging or picking but I managed to find a few specimens laying around worth bringing home. Fossil #1 Approx 6cm by 6cm total, gonna take a wild guess that it`s some sort of shell Fossil #2 Approx 7cm by 11cm total, looks like corral to me, lots of little bits in the area like this but this was the nicest one I found Fossil #3 Approx 5cm by 3cm total, no idea what this could be Fossil #4 Approx 12cm by 14cm total, again have no idea what these could be Fossil #5 Approx 7cm by 5cm total, possible the tip of a larger shell? Fossil? #6 Approx 12cm by 14cm total, not sure if this one is even a fossil or just mineral veins. I would be grateful for any help ID these finds, thanks in advance.

  8. San Jose Island?

    I'm planning a trip out in April/May, mostly for beachcombing and critter-hunting, and I'd like to throw fossil-finding into the mix if I can. Has anyone been out there? Anyone know what sort of fossils I might find and where I should be looking?
  9. Hi all, Here is goes, finally I found a place "alive" enough to talk about fossils. Most other places I saw were just as alive as the fossils they were supposed to talk about. Sohere I went on a trip onto an island in Lake Winnipeg in Manitoba, Canada. The ground is shale or limestone. Just walking on the "beach" I came across a bunch of fossils or imprints of fossils. Now I tried to find out how old that particular spot was and came up with Ordovician. Here are the images of what I saw: 1: 2: This one looks like a fish, but I doubt is a fish would leave such a lasting imprint 3: This one has my size 12 shoe in it for measure, but I saw the same type of imprint that was at least 5 to 6 feet long. 4: Can anyone point me in the right direction or even identify these fossils for me? Thanks, Henk
