  1. Marine fossil ID

    Well, here’s another that we found today on the James River in Virginia. It’s 2.5 inches. At least I know this one isn’t asphalt!
  2. Fish...likely Tilly

    I have been hunting a SW Florida area that is predominantly marine fossils. whale verts, earbones, teeth, dolphin earbones, small shark teeth (Lemon, Tiger, Bull, Hemipristis), ray teeth , broken barbs, occassional GW, Mako, Megs. No significant land mammal material. Actually , out of commission right now, but I'll get back to it soon. Found a lot of these. This is my largest at 3/4 inch. Could be a tilly bone , but these are consistently the same, not finding any other types and little variation in the ones I have found. Think of Eagle Ray teeth as comparative sameness. Maybe some other fossil hunter has stumbled across these. Fish skull?
  3. Little clam?

    Went out to a spot on the Nansemond River in Suffolk, VA, and it started to rain right after. We arrived, so we had to leave. Some iron concretions and this little thing were all I found. It looks like a clam, but it feels rougher than the other clams I’ve found so far. It was inside of a larger rock. I believe the area is mid-late Pleistocene. It’s about 2 cm wide.
  4. Awesome poo

    I just got an awesome coprolite. I generally hate those things, and would never pay money for one, but I came across this one and it has so many visible identifiable remains, I couldn't help being really impressed. Ive always wanted to see a coprolite that had clear remains in it. Sadly they're much smaller and harder to see in person than in these pictures, so I can only use these display pictures for the time being, until I take a magnified look. There's clearly fish scales, seemingly from different types of fish, and apparently squid hooks and such. I'm excited to find a good illuminated magnifying glass and really studying it up close:) Maybe even a microscope to take a closer look!
  5. Is this coral?

    Another from our hunt along the James River in Virginia. Is this coral?
  6. We had such a good time fossil hunting for the first time a few days ago, that it has become all our kids want to do. Took the kids to a site along the James River today. We found some cool stuff and were wondering if y’all could help ID some of them. Thanks in advance. I think this one is a bone fragment, but it’s pretty small, and I’m not sure if it’s even identifiable.
  7. Campanian microfossils

    Hi everyone! It would be amazing if any of you could help with identifying some marine microfossils I sieved. The origin is campanian (might be santonian) marine sediments. The location has yielded mosasaurs, fish, and sharks in abundance. But I have a few bone fragments that I have absolutely no clue what they are... Here are some of the mysteries:
  8. Vertebra identification request

    Found what may be a vertebra, sticking partially out of the ground on private property near Phoenix, Arizona in Maricopa County. The soil is hard-packed coarse sand/silt/gravel with areas of clay. A landscaper added a top dressing of decomposed granite and river rocks - a typical desert landscape design around here. The specimen likely was transported to the site in the river rock. Luck me! Other fossils found in the landscape material lead me to believe it came from a healthy and diverse marine environment with turtles, fish, shark, crocodilia, lizards, skate, snakes and mammals. The entire area was once an inland sea. The specimen is approximately 6.5 cm length x 5 cm width x 2 cm height. (Lateral measurement varies from 1.5 cm to 2.5 cm.) The vertebral body is 5 cm length x 4 cm height. Let me know what you think. The "tooth" on the distal side measures 2 cm.
  9. Marine fossil...bone?

    I've been down for a little minute, but on the mend and digging again. My first outing produced this guy. I found a pocket of kaolin, which is exciting because it seems to always hold nice pieces. I was not let down. I know it still is very encrusted, and I'm trying to navigate it, please bear with me. It's about an inch. When I pulled the nugget I saw a tiny spot of black- figured I had a small tooth or scale. Started prepping it and...what the heck is it? Doesnt look like shell. Never seen anything like it. And ideas? I'm anxious to learn about it. Thanks in advance!
  10. Hello, I've got 13 fossils of which I'm not sure what they are. All fossils are bought, which is why I can't say much about the geological layer and location they're from. I used a ruler with inches and cm sizing. I don't really have to know the 100% exact specimen (please feel free to give the details though if you have them), I would like to have a general idea of what I'm looking at. 1. Sold to me as bamboo, not sure if it is: 2. Sold as a waterlily, its a cross-section: 3. same story as up. I don't know what it actually is: 4. looks like a lizard foot, but it's probably coral. 5. Some kind of crazy stain?? 6. This is obviously a tooth of a carnivore, I would like to know if its mammalian or from a dinosaur. For this one, I would love to know the specifics but shoot away with your ideas on it. 7. Looks like bone, mammalian? Is it even bone? 8. Another piece of supposed to be bone. 9. Bone/wood? who knows? 10. looks like its bone, but really don't know.. 11. Looks like something from the sea... 12. Could be a tooth of a herbivore, could also be anything else. 13. The last of the bunch, its sold to me as coprolite but it doesn't really look like it. I would love to know your ideas on this collection. I am an amateur collector and I can identify some fossils/stones but for these, I really need your help. Thanks in advance.
  11. These are the most numerous former inhabitants(that can be seen with naked eye) in an area I'm studying. Cottonwood Fm, lower Permian, Flint Hills Kansas. There's an odd feature at the anterior end that may help ID it. Would these indicate shallow water environment?
  12. Miocene - Portugal

    Hello, I bought a new mobile phone and finally I can take some better pictures "in situ" of my finds. Last sunday I went to do a fossil hunting in my usual spot. Here I have only a marine formation from miocene. I've made few findings but I taked some pictures: A little Isurus sp. (Mako shark)
  13. Campanian Catch

    I’ve been traveling out of state a bit lately and tending to some personal things. Meanwhile, back in Southerly-Centralish Texas, I managed a quick look at some Campanian exposures. Some finds were common, some rare, all cherished. I’ve attached a few pics, starting with common stuff.
  14. I've been exploring a lower Permian site I think may have intermittently been a shallow marine environment. The location is Eastern Flint Hills, Kansas. What type and size of creatures would indicate a shallow or shoreline environment? Thanks ahead of time for any information.
  15. Plesiosaur bone

    Hello i was offer this Plesiosaur bone and was said to be a fin just wondering could it be from one ? Its size is 30 cm
  16. Ichthyosaur stomach contents

    From the album Marine reptiles and mammals

    Cross sections of the stomach, full of squid/cephalopod hooks and beaks, of an early Jurassic ichthyosaur (Stenopterygius quadriscissus). One slice has the animals ribs, the lighter tan objects, around the stomach, while the other is entirely of the stomach contents.
  17. Ichthyosaur sp. sclerotic ring section

    From the album Marine reptiles and mammals

    Sclerotic ring section of large unspecified ichthyosaur species, from a Somerset Jurassic site(aprx 205 mya)
  18. Shell Fin Other

    Found in close association with the Pragian aged Tarratine formation in northwestern Maine. The first shot shows the part and counterpart relationship. It is a bit hard to tell exactly how much is shared with other adjacent molds however. Layers with a dense concentration of the smaller brachiopods are relatively common in the area.
  19. Morocco fossil

    Anyone know about this fossil? It's from Khouribga, morocco marine formation Size: 2.5cm
  20. Shrimpy looking thing

    I was cleaning some pieces I dug out today, and this little guy popped out of a little shell packed with sediment. I thought it would be a neat tooth or a bit of bone, but, instead it was this. Any ideas? It's only about 2.5mm, so it's pretty darn tiny. Any help on this would be super cool because I don't know where to start. Bug? Shrimp? Looks awful shrimpy to me, but I know nothing there. Could be a bug. Do modern bugs get cemented into fossils often? Or is it a fossil? Thanks in advance! (Sw FL) Florida - Tamiami Formation
  21. Grayson Formation ID urchin spine?

    Echinoid urchin spine is a complete guess. I don’t have a clue. Does anyone know what the tan thing with bumps is? It is just over 2 cm long so far. I found it in the Cretaceous, Grayson Formation in North Texas. It has Mariella brazoensis, Waconela wacoensis, a little nautilus, way too many oysters among other things in the conglomerate with it. Could it be an urchin spine? It has tiny, basically microscopic bumps all over it too. It still needs work uncovering. I came to the oyster on top of it and will have to take another approach to removing the oyster.
