  1. 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
  2. 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:
  3. 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:
  4. 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!
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. Large Tyrannosaurus tooth

    Here is my premaxillary Tyrannosaurus rex tooth I own at 4.25 inches in length.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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?
  16. Not long ago I won in an auction a Timurlengia Euotica tooth, I was absolutely amazed by the quality of the tooth and the size. It is a massive 7,5cm and is in really good condition. It arrived today and it's even better in person! I absolutely adore it and it's a huge jump for my theropod teeth collection, this is my third species of theropod tooth and I am more than happy with this beauty.
  17. Big ammonite found in Whitby

    Hi all I found a large piece of an ammonite at Whitby, the whole thing would of been more than a foot across. Would be great if I could get what species of ammo it is. Thanks for looking.
  18. Large Fossil Found in Oklahoma

    I live in Oklahoma and stumbled upon this. We weren't sure what sort of fossil this could be. I found it in an old dried up creek on our property. I have also found other fossils similar to this that are even larger and longer that are still half way embedded in the bed rock.
  19. ID on this Ammonite ?

    Hi I found this part of a large ammonite in car boot sale this morning. For the price of a £1 . Does anyone have any idea of the ID. Thanks all Bobby
  20. My recent trip to the Fort Payne has me wondering how big do brachiopods get? So why not a thread to show off the largest ones we've found! Here's some of my monsters... First up Productus sp. from the Fort Payne, Lower Mississippain. I think this is Syringothyris sp. from the same formation as the other. I believe this is Rhipidomella sp. (same formation.) Lets see yours!
  21. Dinosuar Tooth?

    I found this about a year ago in upstate pennsylvania in a rock quarry. I am still stumped by it...
  22. Hi, never posted before so please bare with. Found this fossil in a house clearance (Uk). It's sandy in colour across the surface and an off white (chalky) colour in exposed areas. Have included a tape measure in the pics for length (approx 10 inches). both sides (as shown) are deeply textured and it measures 3.1/4 in depth at its deepest but does taper down. (Hopefully shown in pics). Would really appreciate some help with this. PS each "segment" is divided by a very thin, but clear ridge/seam. Thanks all for your help Any more info required, I will do my best. Many thanks.
  23. Hey all, a new member here and hoping someone on the site can help with estimating the value of a large ammonite I have and wanting to sell for my aging father. I'll post photographs to help if requested. The shell is approximately 27 inches by 22 inches. It was unearthed by my amateur fossil hunting father in Shasta County California in 1972. He has told me that it is one of the largest specimens found in the north state. Any guidance on this is greatly appreciated. Shannon
  24. Well I was strolling through my buddies stone supply yard looking for nice sized rocks for the garden and I stumbled upon the coolest thing I have ever randomly found. A huge print! He charged me the cost of stone for it as long as he got to hold on to it for a bit to show his kids! I'm more than excited. I didn't have a tape measure with me but the print is about 2,1/2 to 3" inches at its deepest!
