  1. Is this a ball joint fossil?

    I found it in Latvia (Europe), near Broceni, on my land. Excavator was digging pebbles and rocks for road repair, and about 2 meters deep I spotted this stone which looked interesting. Some of the other stones around contain small shell imprints. And at the depth of about 4 meters there is Zechstein rocks: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zechstein As I understand that means that millions of years ago there was a sea, where I am digging my rocks now. Please take a look at that piece of rock and tell me what you think, could it be a fossil? https://photos.app.goo.gl/VXCZtHJ1Jej9SiJy7 Thank you.
  2. This was found behind my house in the woods in western TN, just outside Memphis. It looks to me to be the shape of a joint of some kind, and the underside has clear structures that look like marrow.
  3. Newbie here- what is this?

    Hi all! I was fossil hunting yesterday and came across this mysterious piece. Being new, I am not 100% sure what it is but I believe it's a joint of a mammal... possibly camel or horse? It's only an inch and a half or so tall. I was wondering if someone could identify it for me? Thank you!
  4. Mammoth Footsy?

    I recieved this Mammoth bone several years back and assumed it to be a part of the leg, but would appreciate a final ID on the location. Is it this portion of the foot? It looks like there was one on the table of big bones at the MAPS show Nimravis took a picture of.
  5. Possible cetacean?

    Hi folks. I found this in a river in south Georgia where there are miocene/eocene fossils. Cetaceans are found here fairly regularly. The flat portion is broken in a weird way, but I'm thinking maybe this is part of a scapula? Thanks very much for looking at it.
  6. Dino joint or cool beach rock?

    Hi All, glad to be a new member here - I've been an avid collector of unique looking rocks and objects found on the beaches of Cape Cod and elsewhere in New England. Here's the first that I'm hoping someone out there can identify. It could just be a cool beach rock - but it always struck me as some kind of bone...(ruler is in Centimeters). Thanks for looking! -Brad
  7. What do we have here?

    Have had these for a bit and am wondering what they are. We have quite the rock and stone collection that has accumulated throughout the years. Same stone, both sides.
  8. Mammoth Knee?

    I have a large joint-like bone found in NE long ago by my grandfather. It's "soft" in the sense that if you would use a tool on it it would flake. The bone measures 8" long, 61/2" tall and 6 1/2" wide. the tooth is fossilized and measures 7" long, 5 1/2" tall and 4" wide. Any help would be appreciated. I've exceeded my photo limit, i'll put in another post if needed Billyatom
  9. Please Help! Bone Valley Fossil

    Hi there! I found this bone last weekend in the Bone Valley Formation in Tampa Florida. It's a massive phosphate deposit that's mined by 'Mosaic'. Any fossils in the deposit won't go through the mining machinery, so the miners pull the chunks out and throw them in a separate bone area - which is just chock full of crazy fossils. These are primarily Miocene fossils (both terrestrial and marine)... but some Pleistocene fossils have been found before. This fossil is the only one of my haul that I just can't identify. Even if we can't figure out what animal it belonged to - I'd be happy to know what kind of bone it is. If it helps - most of the bones I found were dugong. The funky thing about this bone is the 'front' of it has a curve that suggests vertebrae... but the 'back' of the bone is curved in the opposite direction. As if the curves are perpendicular to one another. I think it may be a joint bone. Sorry for all the text - I just want to throw everything I know about this weirdo out there. #1 - What I think is the front of the bone. The bottom part near my thumb is exposed interior - so the bone must have snapped there. The top (towards my fingertips) is exterior bone. #2 - The opposite side. All exterior except for the bottom part where it must have snapped. #3 - Profile of the back of the bone. #4 - Profile of the front of the bone. #5 - Another front profile.
  10. Fossil Joint Bone ?

    Low tide bay find. 9cm long 4 cm wide. Fossil bone? Dinosaur? Or dog bone?
