  1. Is this a tooth or rock thoughts?

    Hi can’t figure out if this is a rock or something else? Found on the beach in Myrtle Beach S.C. I’m leaning towards rock but would love your input.
  2. Is this a vertebra?

    I found this vertebrae(?) Sunday, January 13th, 2019 in Myrtle Beach, SC. I think it's mammalian but I'm still relatively new to collecting fossils. Can anyone help me identify this?
  3. I found this in Myrtle Beach. I assumed it was a fragment of a horse tooth. But I can’t find a tooth that looks quite like this. It seems to have far more many ridges and channels than other teeth I can find. Any experts out there that can confirm for me this is a horse and not something else?
  4. Found on Myrtle Beach. No idea what it is or whether it's worth keeping! Ideas?
  5. Confirm Drum Fish Tooth maybe?

    Found on Myrtle Beach. I have never found or personally seen a drum fish tooth before, but after much research, wondering if that's what I have here? I've looked at some photos online but don't quite see any that are so well scooped-out on the underside. The photos I've found look more dimpled than so perfectly concave. So I'm not 100 percent sure. Thanks! - Paula
  6. Long and cylindrical pieces

    Found on Myrtle Beach this week. Perhaps these are steinkerns/endocasts of something? But I can't find a shell or gastropod that quite matches this shape. And of course, they might not even be the same thing. The slight curve made me want to rule out belemnite (except perhaps for No. 2 from the left.) All the belemnite I see online is straight as an arrow. Ideas? - Paula Ideas?
  7. Are all these Tiger Shark teeth?

    Sorting my sharks' teeth. Not 100 percent sure about some of these. There are just enough differences to throw me. I used a flash because it seemed the best way to highlight the details. First picture front, second picture back. Thank you!
  8. What is it?

    Ok, I picked up something that looked like this on Myrtle Beach a couple of days ago, held onto it for a few hours, then pitched. Decided it was maybe concretion of some sort. I wish I hadn't, because I keep thinking this one looks an awful lot like the one I threw out. Thoughts? It almost looks like three or four short toadstools growing out of a base (it's not, of course - just trying to explain my perspective.) I tried to get a photo close enough so you can see how the puffy parts connect to the stem (third photo.) I tried searching for ear drums thinking maybe it was something like that, but didn't find a picture that looks similar. - Paula
  9. Picked up on Myrtle Beach today. I've seen stingray mouth plates before and this reminds me of that, but they were always small detached pieces with the vertical lines - never inside something bigger. So maybe this is something else? A piece of shell maybe? Appreciate your thoughts. Thanks! Paula
  10. Is this bone material?

    Found on Myrtle Beach. I've been picking up a lot of bone that is quite obvious to me in its look and texture, but this is a strange piece and I'm not convinced it's bone at all. The only reason I haven't given up on it is because it has two colors - the outside is black, the inside is brownish. Thoughts?
  11. Storytime: How did this happen?

    Ok, clearly this isn't a fossil. I'm not a weapons person, but it looks like a bullet. So how about ideas on what happened here? How did it get in this compilation of geological and shell material, was it the heat of friction that caused the "sleeve" of debris part way down, is that a military bullet (and if so, what would it be doing on the East Coast - practice at a military base), etc. Anyway, just found washed up on Myrtle Beach. -- Paula
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. Found on Myrtle Beach. Absolutely no clue! The smooth back is black. The pitted front is reddish brown. Thanks! - Paula
  16. 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
  17. Taking a guess at this one. Is it an endocast/steinkern of some kind of shell? Found at Myrtle Beach. Thanks! - Paula
  18. 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
  19. 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?
  20. 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!
  21. 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?
  22. 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.)
  23. 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
  24. 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
  25. 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
