  1. Carboniferous fossil ID

    I have this fossil here which at first glance I perceived to be some kind of seed, however I’m not sure. These are both from the same individual, just the positive and negative sides. It is just shy of half an inch long. It was found in the North Attleboro section of the Rhode Island formation
  2. Modern teeth from Cape Cod

    Hello folks. I’m in Cape Cod on vacation and although I know I won’t find any fossil shark teeth here I HAVE to collect something so I walking the beach picking up rocks and shells and hoping for shark teeth or some marine bone. I did find these teeth on the beach and hoping that someone (Harry ?) can identify them. Don’t have a ruler but 2-3 inches long. Thank you all
  3. planning a trip for the weekend to Cape Ann, Massachusetts (Gloucester-Rockport). I understand that fossil shark teeth are not going to be found how about modern shark teeth? or anything else interesting? (Other than the world's best fried clams) ps. 2 weeks later a weekend in Cape Cod which according to previous posts on TFF is also devoid of fossil shark teeth
  4. Northern Rhode Island Fossils

    Hello, usually I do all of my fossil hunting around Cory’s lane and other parts of that Formation, but I was wondering if there are any fossil sites near or around North Western Rhode Island.
  5. Any idea what this is?

    This fossil was found in north attleboro, part of the Rhode Island formation and the largest one is 6 inches in length.
  6. Any idea what this is?

    Any idea what this plant fossil is? It was found in North Attleboro as part of the Rhode Island formation. It’s pennsylvanian in age and just shy of an inch and a half.
  7. Found in Massachusetts beach

    Found this on Massachusetts beach, what is this?
  8. Some fossils at the beach

    A couple days ago I spent the day at the Gay Head Cliffs at Martha’s Vineyard. This beach is famous for its vibrantly colored clay cliffs. I did not fossil hunt in the cliffs themselves because as far as I’m concerned it’s a federal offense to even touch the cliffs, but I did find a couple of clams lying along the surf that had eroded out of the cliffs. They’re pretty neat because they’re the first Miocene fossils I’ve ever found. I was hoping to find shark teeth because I had heard they could be found there but at least I found some fossils.
  9. I found this rock at my lake house in Chesterfield, MA. Not sure exactly what it is, but it definitely does not look like just a rock to me. Any help identifying it would be much appreciated! Thanks
  10. More Massachusetts Fossils

    I found these two today, looking for identification
  11. I found a few of these fossils the other day and cant figure out what it is. Let me know your thoughts. The triangle is flat and you can see corners poking out when looked at from different angles.
  12. I found this fossil along with others, looking for id! Id love to learn more about it
  13. Just wanted to share the newest addition to my collection. An anchisauripus dinosaur track fossil, collected legally in Massachusetts.
  14. I am having trouble posting photo, but will get in shortly.
  15. Calamites

    From the album Massachusetts Fossils

    Calamites sp. Found in 2018 in North Attleborough, Massachusetts.
  16. Neuropteris Hash Plate

    From the album Massachusetts Fossils

    Various Neuropteris sp. Found in 2018 in North Attleborough, Massachusetts.
  17. What fossil is this?

    I found this while fishing on the beach if a cove in Massachusetts. It was below a huge rock cliff. Other fossils have been found in the same cove. I don't know what kind of rock the cliff is but this was certainly way different.
  18. Hi all, I have a pair of dino tracks. The left one is a Grallator sp. from the Connecticut River Valley. The right one is an Anomoepus scambus from Granby, Massachusetts. I've been trying to figure out their formation. I know they come from the Newark Supergroup. I would like to narrow it down. Do they come from the Portland Formation?
  19. Hi all I'm an old-time fossil fan new to the US. I've had my share of luck hunting fossils in Israel (ammonites, shells etc), and am now based in Boston with kids who have a good eye and need to learn to search. Can anyone recommend a good, legal fossil hunting site in the area (up to ~2 hour ride)? I'd be most keen for trilobites, since there are none to be found in Israel, but would welcome anything that's kid-friendly (i.e. strolling/sifting rather than shale digging). Thanks! Ella
  20. This afternoon I was able to shoot down to North Attleborough to spend a few hours digging through carboniferous aged rock outcrops. It was a nice change of pace from my usual spots down in Rhode Island! The plant fossils here also preserve much better. My favorite find of the day was a plate covered in various Neuropterids. I'll have to explore southern MA more.
  21. Old Fossil Hull

    This is a unique looking items from my fathe r's collection of (maybe) fossils found in the Eastern part of Massachussetts near coastlines. I was wondering if this is special or even a fossil at all. Thanks.
  22. Fossil ID help needed

    Any help in identifying this is greatly appreciated. Not sure of the origin location, but it was given to my sister in Massachusetts by a neighbor that was moving. About 12 inches tall and 8 inches in widest part of cross section (not exact...estimating from memory).
  23. Found by a tribal member at the Gay Head Cliffs along the shoreline. The only suggestion I've heard so far is cycad. Any ideas? (My photos are too large to insert more than one...I can create a link to more if wanted...)
