  1. What made this impression?

    Thanks to you guys, I think I recognize an endocast/steinkern when I see one. But if I'm right and this is one, I can't for the life of me figure out what would have made this kind of impression. Does this form look familiar to anyone? At first I thought it looked a lot like the rim of a queen helmet shell, but there isn't an opening there to fill with anything that would form a fossil. Found on Myrtle Beach. Thanks! --Paula
  2. Hi everyone, I've been picking up these beautiful little pieces of coral on Myrtle Beach. I assumed they were fossils, but after reading a lot on the Internet, I'm confused. Some sites call them "agatized," others call them stony coral and say they aren't fossils, lots of sites just refer to them as coral fossils. What throws me is that their white and cream colors are unlike the black of the other fossils I find, and the small pieces of bryozoan I find on the beach are all dull gray. And some seem to be attached to a piece of modern shell. I really appreciate your help. - Paula
  3. It was a great day of discover on Myrtle Beach for me. Hope ya'all don't mind the multiple posts. Here's another one. Is this bone? One side is flat and kind of striated, the other side is porous. Am I looking at outer bone on the flat side, and the porous marrowy middle on the other side? (Sorry the photos are a little blurry this close up. I can repost if they are unidentifiable.) Thanks! -- Paula
  4. Found on Myrtle Beach. Absolutely no clue! The smooth back is black. The pitted front is reddish brown. Thanks! - Paula
  5. Need help identifying bone

    I'm told most bones found on Myrtle Beach are dugong, but I can't quite place this bone on a chart I have of the dugong skeleton. Ideas? Thanks! Paula
  6. Taking a guess at this one. Is it an endocast/steinkern of some kind of shell? Found at Myrtle Beach. Thanks! - Paula
  7. Found on Myrtle Beach. Seems to be almost enamel-like beneath the bumps, as if the bumps were added later. But I can't remove any of the bumps so it's a solid piece. It's thin, and the bumps are on all sides. Thanks! - Paula
  8. No clue as to what this is. I would have discarded it except for the tiny smooth and shiny area in the crevice. Found on Myrtle Beach. Ideas?
  9. I've resisted posting this one because it's so common on Myrtle Beach, I figured I'd be able to research it myself. But hours later, I still am not sure what to call this. Thank you!
  10. Found on Myrtle Beach. I'm told most bones here would be dugong But the coloring and look of this one is strange Can't decide if this is an axis vertebra, or just a rock with a borehole in it. Thoughts?
  11. Is this a dugong vertebra?

    Ok now that I'm getting the hang of this site, I'm trying to do more of my own research. And my amateur sleuthing wants to say this is a dugong vertebra - even though it seems a bit larger than other things I've seen. How am I doing? Thanks! (Found on Myrtle Beach today.)
  12. Ok, found this one tonight walking Myrtle Beach. It kind of reminds me of a walnut shell. The center seems to be some kind of seam. I'm including a photo of the opposite side but it's not as great as I hoped. Hard to show detail, but it's concave as if it held something. Ideas? -- Paula
  13. Ok, another new one for me today. I picked up one at Myrtle Beach, SC because it looked interesting, then found a second almost identical one. Now I'm thinking it's something worth knowing! It's dense and heavy. The top has a gray metallic sheen to it. Both of them have a middle circular area that looks rusty, and as if something had been attached there and pulled off. The back looks completely different. Where the front is smooth and shiny, the backside is rather dull. It is comprised of layers, and they layers come together in a knobby area at one end (again, as if perhaps it had been connected to something.) Overall, it really looks like a kind of clam shell to me, but the metallic sheen, rusty circle and layered interior don't look like any clam I've ever seen. Thank you again! - Paula
  14. Need help with one more item. Found four of these on Myrtle Beach today. I've looked all over the Internet and can't seem to put in the right words to find an image to help me identify them. I'm including two different views. Can you identify? Thank you so much! Paula
  15. Hi all. Found this on Myrtle Beach. Never seen anything like it before. Any ideas? I'm including a photo of the top and bottom. Thank you! Paula
  16. Hi everyone. My first time posting. Just found this one today at Myrtle Beach. It looks like a bone to me. Ideas? And if it is a bone, any thoughts on what it could be? I'm including photos with and without flash. Thank you! Paula
  17. Megalodon or Great White Tooth?

    This tooth was found in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. It measures to about 1.5 inches. The shape of the tooth was interesting and unlike what I had seen previously, so I asked around and was told it was most likely a tooth from a Megalodon, however I remained skeptical due to its size. I would like to know what animal this tooth came from. Thank you in advance.
  18. Unusual Tooth Found At Myrtle Beach

    While looking for washed up shark teeth on the beach I stumbled upon this unusual tooth. I had no idea what it was from, so I googled around and nothing came up. It isn't very large. The object measures in at about 1 inch. It has very small serrations that run along it. It was found in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
  19. Myrtle Beach?

    Hi- Does anyone know how Myrtle Beach fossil hunting is these days? I'm planning to visit mid December. What should I expect? Where should I go? I hear they are re-nourishing the beaches-does this hurt my chance to find anything? Thanks
  20. North Myrtle Beach tooth?

    Found what appears to be a tooth at North Myrtle Beach. There appears to be enamel but the tip is missing, and what looks like a root. Any ideas on what it is?
  21. Fossil Identication Request

    Requesting help to properly identify some fossils I found this past week while walking the coastline of Myrtle Beach, SC.
  22. How old is this sea biscuit?

    How old do you think this fossilized sea biscuit is? I found it today at Myrtle Beach, South Carolina 3 weeks post Hurricane Florence.
  23. Help with more Myrtle Beach Finds

    After going through the last of our fossil finds from our vacation at Myrtle Beach, SC these are the ones we would like help identifying. Thank you!
  24. I found this tooth at North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina last week and I have no idea what species to which it belongs. Any help would be appreciated in figuring out what it is. Thanks!
  25. Fossilized bone?

    This was found in the sand at Myrtle Beach in South Carolina. It looks like fossilized bone? If so, I was hoping that someone would have an idea of what it is from.
