  1. Found this odd fossil on Myrtle Beach 2-18-2020. Never found one like this. Personal opinion it resembles a crocodile tooth that broke, and point recessed into the larger portion. However it is very solid, and there seem to be no seams to confirm this (and it was a wild guess on my part anyway). Hopefully one of you has a more educated opinion. I'd love to hear from you if so. Thanks for looking and happy hunting.
  2. Turtle pieces? (3 of 3)

    First year trying to identify turtle pieces on Myrtle Beach. I found this piece that confounded me. It is mostly flat. As a matter of fact, three-fourths of it tailors away into a very thin piece. But about a third of it expands into a half-inch thickness with a marrow type look inside. Could this be some kind of turtle foot/flipper? (Last picture might be best angle to see how it tapers.)
  3. Turtle pieces? (2 of 3)

    First attempt to collect turtle pieces and trying to understand and recognize them. Two specimens in this post... PHOTOS 1 and 2: Is this turtle? I see people mention "scute" and I'm wondering if this is scute of something instead. PHOTOS 3 AND 4... Is this turtle? Top looks almost geological but underside looks biological. - Paula
  4. Turtle pieces? (1 of 3)

    This was the first year I tried looking for turtle pieces on Myrtle Beach. I found a ton of possibilities, but had some questions on them. There are two specimens represented in this post... Photos 1 and 2. Is this turtle? I'm having a hard time figuring out where on a shell this "flare" design might be. PHOTOS 3 AND 4...Is this turtle? Looks like wood on one side, and marrow type activity on the other, but the woodsy side has me skeptical. I have a few pieces that look like this... - Paula
  5. Is this a dolphin/whale tooth?

    This one is a first for me. Online sources indicate perhaps dolphin/porpoise/whale? Can anyone narrow it down? Myrtle beach find. Thank you! - Paula
  6. Is this tortoise shell?

    One last piece for today as I clean up my finds from my trip to Myrtle Beach. I have a few pieces like this and I think they are tortoise. Just wanted to confirm. Thoughts?
  7. Need oyster ID

    Can't quite figure out the ID on this oyster. Myrtle Beach Thanks as always! - Paula
  8. No idea what I have here. Just intrigued me because there is a circular impression on one side. Absolutely no idea what it might be if it's fossil trace. More likely some geological effect. Thoughts? It's about 3.5 inches long. Myrtle beach find.
  9. Are there shark bites on this bone?

    Found on Myrtle Beach. I'm thinking this is some sort of whale bone, perhaps rib. Agree? And I don't want to read too much into cracks in this bone, but could they be shark bites? Thanks! - Paula
  10. Fossil?

    My son found a fossil and he would love to find more information about what it could be, thank you in advance!
  11. Picked this up today on Myrtle Beach. I thought it was a steinkern, slightly different shape than others I'd collected. Then I noticed pitting - like marrow - on part of it. (See second photo.) It's a very distinctive shape, so wondering if anyone sees a recognizable bone in this, or is just a steinkern that those little hole-diggers got ahold of? Thanks!
  12. The black part of this is so smooth and shiny, it truly looks like an enamel. But even though it is somewhat conical, it doesn't seem to be a tooth. Part of it looks very much like plain rock, but then the shape looks rather deliberate. Oh I don't know - I give up. Any ideas?
  13. Ok, this is just a fragment, but still - I don't recognize it. Thoughts? The surface is rounded, the backside is hollowed out. It's way, way bigger than any croc or gator tooth I've found, though the striations on the front remind me of that.
  14. What is this? Myrtle Beach find

    No idea. Kind of reminds me of a sea urchin, but not quite. Also reminds me of the kind of "hat" an acorn wears. It's got a little peak to it. Animal? Plant? (Side view and better top view added below in a post.)
  15. Possible mammal tooth of some kind?

    At first I thought it was the tip of a rib, but I see little swirls of enamel inside like a horse - though this doesn't look like the couple of horse teeth I've found. Perhaps another mammal of some kind? Myrtle Beach.
  16. Ok this is a strange one. If I look head on, I think I see rings - like tree rings. But also weird because there appear to be perhaps growth rings on the outside - two of them. Makes me think of how bamboo grows, with that thick outer ring every so often. Of course, probably just rock with a real interesting history, but there are some marks on this that just have me intrigued. Myrtle Beach find.
  17. Crab claw, maybe? - Myrtle Beach

    Myrtle Beach find. Thoughts? Haven't found one of these before, at least not fossilized. Looks like little white crab claws I've picked up from time to time.... It's hollow.
  18. I think I found a bird bone?

    Myrtle Beach find, just this afternoon. Looks like it came off a chicken Also, it's hollow. Forgot to take a photo of that angle, but a hole all the way through the center. Ideas?
  19. 3 specimens - Rock? Wood? Bone?

    3 more specimens - these i labeled 7/8/9. 7 and 9 really, really look like fossilized wood to me. I can't imagine what 8 is - looks like the branch of a tree maybe? But I also know simple rock can take on really interesting shapes and patterns and fool the eye. Thanks again!
  20. 3 more specimens - bones or rock?

    Checking on three more specimens found on Myrtle Beach - I labeled them 4/5/6. I'm very curious about #6. The more I look at it, the more it doesn't look like a bone.
  21. 3 specimens: Bone or rock?

    Found on Myrtle Beach. A recent post about a possible bone more likely being molten lava has me wondering about the other "bone" specimens I picked up. Here's the first batch.... Could you weigh in? Photos with and without flash if it helps.
  22. Is this a fragment of a horse tooth?

    From Myrtle Beach If you know your horse teeth, I'd be interested to know if you think this is a fragment of one? Thanks!
  23. I thought maybe some kind of steinkern, but part of it is pitted like bone marrow. It doesn't resemble anything else I've found. It's pinched at the top. The top pinched end is smooth and shiny - almost enamel-like. The bottom half is round and pitted.
  24. Found on Myrtle Beach. I usually find very small pieces of bone. This looks like it has marrow, but I've been fooled before. Is it bone? And if so, can you tell what it might be? Curves and angles all over the place made it hard to figure out how to photograph it. Hopefully one of these angles will work!
  25. Myrtle beach: Fish skulls??

    I know what a sea robin skull looks like - these are not that. The top of these are smooth, not pitted. The underside shows holes that begin at one end of the fossil and exit at the other side (I don't know the official term, maybe a cavity that fit an artery or tendon?) It's possible that not all three of these are the same - two look similar, one is a little different. If not skulls, part of a vertebra maybe? Thanks for any help - and I'm sorry for the photos. The light isn't cooperating with me. I have a no-flash and a flash image of each side of the trio, whatever helps you see what you need to see.
