  1. Any idea of the type of this marine invertebrate ? Most probably marine worms and Pleistocenic but any sugestion welcome.
  2. Twisted Vertebrae

    I keep trying to twist this fossil around thinking it will come out a marine or cetacean (atlas or axis) vertebrae. Something like a rubik cube. Any one recognize a feature? The fossil is L 3.25 x W 1.5 inches .
  3. Help to identify

    Please can someone help identify pictured fossil. We found 2 of similar shape, with outer shape resembling a stingray, but the spine in the middle seems to be a much simpler structure then that of a stingray
  4. Marine tooth ,Central Queensland

    Nice tooth found in Richmond, Queensland of Creataceous age in marine sediments. It has been id as a sharks tooth but is missing the top section. Any more info on this tooth would be great. Cheers
  5. These two items were found in a gravel deposit in west central Alabama, US. The larger is a bit over 1 inch long and the smaller about 1/2 inch. Can anyone help me identify what they are?
  6. Unkown Bone.

    Hey y’all what’s up my dudes. To be completely honest I’m not even sure if this is a fossil. This come from a late uncle of mine, I inherited his collection, and most of the contents are unlabeled. Anyway Here are some pictures.

  8. Marine Fossils (Ohio)

    Figured I’d post one more while I’ve got the collection out. When I was younger, my grandfather had a gravel driveway put in. I assume it came from Ohio, although I have no idea in truth. I frequently picked through it and found a few fossils. The gravel is clearly made of marine sediment for the most part - I’ve found brachiopods, trilobite fragments, shells, etc. I just wonder what these two could be? The first one has a couple of different structures in it - I’m thinking sponge or coral for the main part. The second, I have no idea. It looks footprint-ish, but this doesn’t make sense due to the marine nature of the gravel. Any ideas? Thanks, Nate
  9. What is this object?

    What is this strange object? Is it a bone? A possible fossil? It was collected on the shore of Northumberland Strait, Prince Edward Island, Canada. The strata at this location are generally late Permian, I believe. Thank you for any help you can provide. - John
  10. Sm bone

    It feels good to get back to river hunting, slightly early this year. My hunting friend found this bone and asked if I could get an ID. There seems to be some features that possibly identify the "type" of bone (humerus, scapel, etc) versus which animal. It is 3.2 length x 1.1 height (inches). Found in the Pleistocene - miocene mix that is the Peace River. However, most of the associated fossils were shark, fish or marine mammal (porpoise earbone & verts), so marine is a possibility. ALL comments & suggestions are greatly appreciated. Jack
  11. Bones Found in Ocean Cave

    Hey guys, I've found some bones and want to see if anyone is able to identify them for me. So while snorkeling off the coast of Rarotonga in the Cook Islands I found a spine of some sort. It was resting inside the opening of a cave. The length of spine that was visible to me was about half a metre maybe just over half a metre long. Each single vertebrae was about 20cm wide. Please view the photo provided. (Sorry I'm having trouble uploading the photo, I'm gonna try again in the morning..) Any help or input is greatly appreciated thank you
  12. Devonian thin

    Found in what I believe to be Emsian marine deposits here in Maine. The most common fossils found there are horn corals, but I've collected a number of other things there. Phosphate nodules are fairly common there as well.
  13. My wife and I went for an afternoon drive Saturday to see if we could find a few places I had been reading about a couple hours away. The first stop was Mcintyre Mountain, a Pennsylvanian plant fossil location looking through the tailings from a large but long abandoned mine town, like 150 years abandoned. The drive in was a 4 mile dirt road up the mountain. Luckily for us the majority of it was well maintained and the scenery was beautiful.
  14. Found some great fossils with the family today in Central Queensland , braved a dust storm but was worth it. They are all of Permian age in the Tiverton formation which is marine sediment. If someone can give me some exact IDs that would be great. More photos in comments
  15. unknown find.

    found with clay Septarian nodules aka lightning stones. Transparent when wet. back show the tail end? plus a round something top center. front dry and moist. some kind of life form. S.W. Lake Michigan Fennville, Mich. base may be 50 mil, year old clay.
  16. Saurid Skull, Croatian Coast

    Hello Sorry I'm new I just registered to find some answers Yesterday while searching for some fossilized clams or marine stuff I came across this little beauty. It's about 7 cm wide and some 5 cm high. I found it at the Dalmatian Coast in Croatia. Anybody knows what it could be? And, what do I do with it now? Do I carry it to a museum? Kind regards
  17. Are these bivalves extinct

    I can find photos that look like the ones in the last 3 photos but can't seen to find much info on them, are all of these the same species? I can't find anything that looks like the one in the first 3 photos so I'm not sure what to make of it. Based on the photos I've compared some of these to, I believe that some may have gone extinct during the Pliocene.
  18. Fossil found in marine limestone deposit Ut. About 9” long. Formation from Mississippian according to USFS.
  19. Mosasaur bone clump

    From the album Marine reptiles and mammals

    A cool Moroccan mosasaur bone pile I acquired, sadly the matrix is so soft the piece broke in transit, but thankfully the splits missed all but 1 smaller bone. I'm considering just removing them from the matrix, and maybe mounting them in the same positions again, but I haven't decided yet. *more info to follow
  20. Exogyra found in DFW creek

    I know this is a Exogyra oyster, but part of the fossil has been broken off. On the end, it seems to show fossilized flesh? What is that long thing? Internal flesh?
  21. ID gastropods

    These are 2 of the largest gastropods that I have come across while digging fossils out of these sandstone boulders. I'm not sure but I think the first one is maybe a solariella maculate. I can find photos of what looks like the second one but I can't seem to place a name to it. Location, near Palmdale, Ca., most likely from the Pliocene period.
  22. Dallas creek Rudists fossil?

    I found this long cylinder sticking out of the creek wall few weeks ago. I had no choice , but to break it from the rock. Ended up in several pieces. I'm not quiet sure 100 percent what this is. I searched the forum, but can't figure out other than Rudist.
  23. I have come across several tiny bivalves and gastropods while digging marine fossils out of sandstone boulders, they range in size from about less than 1mm to about 10mm. I was wondering, do all of these small specimen grow into the larger ones? Also, I can plenty photos of present day small specimen but I can not seem to find many photos of prehistoric small bivalves and gastropods, anyone have any links to tiny prehistoric shells???
  24. These things are very small and difficult to find but I came across a stone that was littered with hundreds of forams and these spicules. I don't recall seeing anything that look like a sponge so I'm very curious as to why there were so many of these spicules being found in this stone that was found in a desert.
  25. Bird Toe Bone

    Sieved through some matrix the other day and found this little specimen that I thought worth sharing. The scale is in .5 mm so specimen is 4 mm long so fairly small This is a toe bone from a bird about 100 million years old. It is unusual but the bias towards toe bones from this area is high go figure. The matrix this came out of is marine. Enjoy Mike
