  1. This Is my first post. I am a amateur hunter from south Louisiana. I have had a lot of trouble finding fossils. I have found one chrinoid in a creek, but aside from coral,nothing has been found.I have found that the two prominent spots from the days of past have been covered long ago. I also realize I in a area with not a lot of potential for ground or creek fossils. I have done one trip, and found plenty there, but that was a long drive to Texas. I have even emailed people such as LSU and Alabama professors and geologists from Mississippi, Louisiana and Tennessee. Help please!

    Is this part vertebra?

    Found this in central Louisiana along with what I would assume is the end of a rib bone? How can you tell if it was from a land animal or ocean dwellers of the time. Excuse my lack of knowledge in this area I am new to this hobby. The first picture has clearly a hole through it where I’m assuming was where either nerve/blood vessel ran through. Just not sure what part of bone it is or who it belonged to.

    Help with ID

    Found this one and I can’t seem to figure out what it is. Any help would be great!

    Fossil that was found in Beach

    This was found either on Timablier Island or Last Island, Louisiana in Terrebonne Parish. I had it with other shells(clam shells, pieces of clam shells) and what looks an oyster shell.
  5. Layt

    Is this an egg?

    I think I found an egg with an exposed embryo, a couple of pictures show the size.
  6. Beader

    Illuminati?

    This is from my yard in Central Louisiana. I had a bunch of pea gravel hauled in so I can find “Indian Beads” (lifelong collector) I am unable to identify it thus far in my searches. Can y’all help? Thanks in advance! Wanting to get back in to this

    Ammonite?

    Looking through my typical pile of gravel I saw this, I thought maybe it was wishful thinking because I see spiral shapes all the time. I picked it up and noticed it had traces of shell like material tracing the spiral. Could it be an ammonite encased in chert like this, or just a worn down snail of some other sort?
  8. Requesting assistance identifying the dark slug-looking forms, these look like they were once soft-bodied so I'm pretty lost. I haven't the foggiest idea what these are and my fossil reference books don't have anything that looks like this in the photos or illustrations from what I can see. This was a creek find in southeast Louisiana. Your time and expertise are very much appreciated by this fossil newbie, thanks.

    Help with Oyster shell Identification

    Greetings Guys! I had a question relative to this Oyster shell. It was found on the bank of the Mississippi river, out of New Orleans. Being from Louisiana, I "sho nuff" know an oyster shell when I see one. The curiosity of this one is where it was found. No trash pile, no oyster bed, just simply on the sand on the river bank where the water level is has gone down. I'm trying to figure out if this could be a oyster fossil. At this point in the river, it is 100% fresh water, whereas oysters like salt, or brackish water. Any thoughts from you guys, gals, would be greatly app

    Anyone From Louisiana

    I have several rocks with fossil imprints as well as fossils imbedded in them. Im not sure exactly what some are. I have researched them and have discovered some of my rocks are corrals. I will post pics for help.
  12. These are a few of the pdf files (and a few Microsoft Word documents) that I've accumulated in my web browsing. MOST of these are hyperlinked to their source. If you want one that is not hyperlinked or if the link isn't working, e-mail me at joegallo1954@gmail.com and I'll be happy to send it to you. Please note that this list will be updated continuously as I find more available resources. All of these files are freely available on the Internet so there should be no copyright issues.

    Fairly large gastropod

    I found this one ages ago when i was a kid. I didn't even realize it was a fossil until i picked it up years later and saw that the "dirt" on the inside was solid rock with small shell pieces. Seems relatively recent if anything. Don't know exactly where it came from.

    Any ideas

    This thing is heavy and I'm not sure if it's a fossil but it's not metal and it looks like it is covered in enamel. It's about 2" long and 1-1/4" wide and 1/2 " thick.
  15. I have another smaller piece of this black (coral?) with this vivid yellow in it, and it also has those yellow dots around the edge. This specimen has those interesting whorls in the yellow that remind me of beetle wings for some reason. Ideas?

    A Home, I Think; But To Whom?

    Wondering if this shape is specific enough to identify who might have lived in this. Ideas? ~caroline

    Swear this is not a hoax.

    A customer of mine got into a conversation about fossil hunting. The old timer found this antler in a gravel pit in 1960 while working. I assure you it's real plus he has zero sense of humor so I'm sure he's not pulling my leg. I've tried to research what it could possibly be but have had no luck. I told him I would give it the ol college try to ID it for him... any thoughts?

    Teeth?

    Found these in north Louisiana in a creek bed where I find shark teeth stingray barbs but this trip I came across these tooth like finds. Are they teeth or something else?
  19. Photo: top left Found in a small (10ft wide) woodland stream near the LA/MS border, (East Feliciana Parish, LA/Wilkinson County, MS) within the Citronelle Formation; formed during the Pliostene. While the Citronelle is oft noted to contain fewer saltwater fossils than expected for an ancient coastal plain, this stream has provided probably 95% of the marine fossils in my collection. As a longtime rockhounder but fresh off the boat newbie to fossil identification, I've struggled to find a match for this fossil. (The photo is one I had on hand, am preparing to paint and

  21. One of my finds today in north LA looks like bone but the round top is suspicious. Either way it's cool looking! Anyone seen anything like this?

    Claw or tooth?

    Went out on a hunt today and found the usual shark teeth ray barbs. Two of my finds I'm not sure about they seem to be either a claws or teeth. Found them in north Louisiana in an outcrop from the Late Cretaceous Epoch. Anyone have any ideas?

    Shark Tooth ID Help
