  1. Is this a mammoth bison?

    My cousin and I found this years ago while walking an old creek bed on his grandmas farm land. We were told it was a mammoth bison skull from the ice age. We know nothing about fossils and honestly can’t even decide if it is a fossil. It’s over 31” from horn tip to horn tip and pretty dang heavy. Can anyone give us some sort of information on this? Thanks
  2. I just want to share some photos of a Moroccan Andalusian Trilobite I purchased about ten years ago. It's kinda large with the actual Trilobite measuring 9.5 x 7.5 inches on the matrix. I knew before I purchased it there had been restoration work and painting applied. I had always wanted one of these large trilobites to add to my collection but was skeptical because of the many fakes on the market. So, I looked for quite a while until I decided to purchase this one. I used the "common sense" approach that if it looked reworked/faked - it most likely is. I couldn't find what I determined to be an original complete sample on the market. So, I decided to purchase what appeared to be the most complete (to me). I enlarged the photos so I could see the extent of the restoration work and how much of the original trilobite remained. I estimated about 60-75% of this trilobite looked original and wanted to see if I was correct, so I purchased it (photo#1). When it arrived I inspected it and removed all of the orange paint, some of the underlying brown cephalon paint (difficult to remove) and much of what looked to be plaster/filler (photo#2). This gave me an idea of how much of the original trilobite remained, which appeared to be about 50-65%. I detailed the remaining filler and applied several coats of wax to bring out the natural color of the trilobite (remaining photos). I was not disappointed with my purchase because my expectations where set very low, but I was pleased with the results. If you look closely at the trilobite to see what looks natural and what looks restored/fake before you purchase one of these, you can find relatively complete examples (50-60%) on the market that will clean up nicely for display. A collector can tell what's not original with a close inspection. But, if you want one (for a reasonable price) to fill a spot in your collection and for display...…….
  3. What kind of petrified wood is it

    I got this petrified wood. But couldn't know what kind of wood it was. Any comment?
  4. I have got these two trilobite with another smaller one on the reverse side. Also have a negative matrix of the two large ones which size about 8-10 inches each. Can you help me to identify if this is a real or fake. If it is real what kind is it. Thanks
  5. We have many wonderful threads that let members show off some of their fossils. Threads like “Fossil du Jour” and your “Latest Mail Box Score.” In that same spirit, I wanted to see if anyone would be willing to share examples of some of their BIG fossils. It could be as simple as the largest fossil in your collection, or the largest example you have of a certain type of fossil. Just as long as you would in some way consider them to be on the large side. I’ll go first. This is the largest fossil in my collection. It's a piece of petrified wood. Its roughly 15in long x 14in wide and 4.75in thick. That's about 38cm x 35.5cm x 12cm to the rest of the world. I can't find my scale to weigh the thing, but it is at least 50 pounds or roughly 22.5kg. I would guess it to weigh more. Unfortunately, I have no information on this piece. It was gifted to me by a friend who had it gifted to them by someone else. This is the largest crinoid columnal (in diameter) that I have ever found. It's about 1.25in wide (3.1cm). It's from the lower Mississippian. (Borden Formation, Muldraugh member). Unidentified as of now.
  6. Some kind of belemnite?

    I'm guessing it's a squid of some kind, but I didn't think they split diagonally? Pictures to come.
  7. So I recently purchased a moroccan drotops trilobite, mostly because of its size. It is 5 1/2 inches. It was a impulse purchase and I was not concidering if it might be fake. The reason I think it might not be genuine is the random scratches all around the trilobite on the matrix. I remembered reading that scratches like that are sometimes added to hide signs of it being faked. My original thought when I bought it, was that the scratches could be there from it being quickly prepped. Let me know what you all think! I've attached pictures of it from all angles. Thank you!
  8. Found on NC beach

    Hi. Any help you can give me in indentifying this would be great!! Found on the beach in the Outer Banks NC.
  9. 4 large Florida fossil shells!

    Hello all! Last October, Ken @digit gifted me and Viola some large Florida fossil shells. I took ownership of 4 shells and Viola took the rest. Now that I'm almost done labeling all of my fossils, I would like to put a genus and perhaps even a species for each of my specimens - any and all help is much appreciated - perhaps @MikeR can provide some assistance? And, Ken, are these from "Cookiecutter Creek"? And what age should I put to them? Specimen #1: A bivalve - perhaps Mercenaria sp.? Specimen #2: Another bivalve - perhaps Dinocardium sp.? Specimen #3: A gastropod with the opening on the left, so I think it might be Sinistrofulgur contrarium - is this correct? Specimen #4: Another gastropod - perhaps Melongena corona? Thanks in advance! Monica
  10. Late Carboniferous Oyster or Clam II

    A second large Clam or Oyster? I dug a huge piece of limestone out of the hill and split it into three with a sledge hammer so that I could actually pick pieces up. After the heat this weekend, they were easy to pick apart once I got them home. Yesterday, I found the first piece. This is the one I found today. When it came out of the rock I was a bit shocked at how large it was. I carefully tapped around the specimen and was able to remove most of the surrounding rock carefully. This is the larger of the two pieces I found this weekend. I have less confidence in identifying it as has less features than the first piece. You can see shell material flaking off in the 3rd and 4th photos below. The fossil after I found it: Then, once I removed it from the rock:
  11. Late Carboniferous Oyster or Clam

    I love and hate finding large fossils. They are really interesting and striking to look at, but I have a hard time getting an ID on them. I dug a huge piece of limestone out of the hill and split it into three with a sledge hammer. After the heat this weekend, they were easy to pick apart. Yesterday, out popped this piece. There is another one I found today that I will be posting after this one. This piece has several wavy ridges. The shell material looks pearly, and perhaps some calcite replacement has happened. There was a piece of shell stuck on the mold portion as well. I'm seeing about 6 distinct ridges. Anyone know what it might be? Before I removed it from the rock: Several views after removing, trying to show the ridges:
  12. Trilobite identification

    Hello everyone! I have a local fossil guy and he doesn't always get in trilobites as he specialises in ammonites. He knows I collect them so gets the odd one in from the same supplier for me to look at. Although I own many different types of trilobites I have never found this type yet, even after visiting many fossil shows. Does anyone know what it could be? Possibly an older species? Has tiny pointy dot eyes like my cyphaspis. It's quite large, maybe 12cm. I'm torn as to whether to buy it, it's not exactly a pretty one but the collector in me feels I need it! Thanks for your time!
  13. Help with ID of this bone

    Found in Bremerton, Washington . grappled by a rotted tree and its roots., near the surface. Its big and heavy. Not sure first thought Willy mammoth but was told maybe dinasour nasal cavity.
  14. Can you ID this tooth

    Hello everyone. This is a great website, I've enjoyed browsing through the various threads. I'm not sure if I'm in the right place though. I've been trying to find out what type of tooth that I have for some time, although have failed miserably. I have no idea how old this is. I was told that it was a buffalo tooth, although it seems to be too large and is not the same shape. This measures: 2.12 inches tall 1.58 inches wide 1.08 inch thick Weight: 43.91 grams I know that this isn't exactly what is usually posted, although I thought that I would give it a shot. I can delete this post if it isn't right for this site. I appreciate any thoughts. If you have any questions I'd be happy to answer them as best I can.
  15. Large Tyrannosaurus tooth

    Here is my premaxillary Tyrannosaurus rex tooth I own at 4.25 inches in length.
  16. XXL Trilobite

    I have been sitting on these two pieses for a bit and wondered if anyone out the could help identify it. It was found in Nevada. The longest section is about 5.5 inches long before it runs off the rock. My best messurement is 5 inches wide shell. From what I can tell it have a fairly thick shell from the pos/neg. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  17. What kind of Brachiopod is this?

    I found this brachiopod as float on the side of the road. It was very near the transition of Devonian to Mississippian Lodgepole Formation in Little Belt Mountains, in Montana. The fossils is large. I'm thinking it might be a spiriferida.
  18. Fossils?! Please help identify

    The files I have are too large, I’m hoping to be able to post more pictures in the thread. These items were found on the Jurassic coast in the uk. The item in this image is smooth and solid, albeit there are parts of it broken off, it was whole when we found it.
  19. Everyone, Any help appreciated. It has been cast and is being referred to others as well. This is a large shale slab fro the Devonian which appears to have been flipped over from stream bottom during a heavy flood event. So this is most likely a positive of an actual negative trace. i.e. a perfect squiggly "groove" 3 feet long. Marc
  20. Found a tooth on the beach

    I found a tooth on the beach, but I am unable to identify the animal to which it belonged to. It has a width of about 1.5inches, so it is fairly large. Anyone who tries to identify it, your help will be much appreciated.
  21. Broken woolly Rhino skull, Need Help!!!

    Hi guys, Recently I ordered a partial wooly rhino skull and as you could imagine I was on the brink of tears when it arrived. I ordered from overseas and someone must have dropped the box or something? but I am contacting the seller to see if I could get a partial refund (but I have my doubts). So I am trying to be positive and make this my "not so little" prep project, there is one problem though. I have no idea what I'm doing! (I don't even know if It's salvageable) So this is where you amazing people come in. I would love to get this looking as original as possible and was wondering if there was a product for that, or if I could just use household items, Or maybe there's some other solution that is foreign to me? Anyway, I would love to here every idea and any advice you've got. I have taken some pictures that are listed below, the last two are it in the condition before it was sent. If you need any more pictures to refer to, Please! contact me otherwise thanks for taking the time to read this and hope to hear from you soon. Thanks so much, Ryan.
  22. Hemipristis serra

    This is by far the largest Hemipristis I have ever collected. At 1.81 inches wide, it is wider than the next longest one in my collection.
  23. Huge hemipristis?

    From what I have seen of other hemi teeth, they generally aren't much bigger than 2". But this really looks like those, only much bigger. Any ideas?
