  1. I had a question relative to this sea shell. It was found on the bank of the Mississippi river, out of New Orleans. The curiosity of this one is where it was found. 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 sea shell fossil. At this location of the river, it is 100% fresh water, whereas this looks like salt water sea shell. Any thoughts from yawl would be greatly appreciated. Joe Any thoughts from you guys, gals, would be greatly appreciated.
  2. 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 appreciated. Joe
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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?
  6. 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?
  7. 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?
  8. A Home, I Think; But To Whom?

    Wondering if this shape is specific enough to identify who might have lived in this. Ideas? ~caroline
  9. 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 the fossil is buried in chaos right now.) Betting this ID likely is child's play for most of you, any light you can shine on this fossil would be so very much appreciated. -caroline

  11. 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?
  12. 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?
  13. Shark Tooth ID Help

    Found in northern Louisiana but I am not 100% on what species. Any tooth experts able to shed some light?
  14. Cany anyone ID this bone?

    Went out over the weekend to my spot in North Louisiana and had a good day. One of my bone fossils I found is not one of my usual finds. It has a hole through the bottom and comes out the top. I'm at a loss as to what species this bone belongs to as well as if the " tunnel " was for tendon or blood supply? From what I understand the outcrop I am digging in is from the Late Eocene. I have pulled 45lb vertebra and rather large rib bones from here. I'm sure most are from either whale or similar sized mammals. This bone however I have never seen before. Any one have an idea or info on this bone?
  15. Please help identify these 2 fossils!! ツ

    These are pictures of one of the fossils... it has honeycomb shaped structures all through it and some of them are hollow while some are filled with a lighter white colored rock...
  16. Identification needed :)

    Hello Fossil Forum! I was hoping someone could help me identify this tooth. A friend of mine found it in the Tunica Hills by the Louisiana state penitentiary. When it was found it was a whole specimen, but got broken by the person taking the photo : ( I hope anyone can tell me just what type of tooth it is. The curiosity has been killing us. Thank you for your time and efforts!
  17. Billfish Rostrum ID Help

    I am reposting in and attempt to get a definitive ID on the rostrum . Thanks to AL Dente I believe it is a billfish rostrum his thoughts were Istiphoridae or Xiphiorhynchus Kimblocki . A Google search has not yielded much information on my quest to positively ID the rostrum. I am asking for something that may be difficult or impossible to do without a hand on inspection but a definitive ID would be awesome. Any information would be appreciated thanks
