  1. Mystery find

    Hello everyone. Please help me identify this beautiful piece of history before my dog gets hold of it and buries it in my back yard.....100,000 years from now some future archaeologist will be like “ very interesting - quite obviously a dinosaur fossil but very strange how it lies next to a chicken bone a tennis ball and a plastic object with the word Chukkit stamped on it....must have been some sort of early human ritual.” This fossil measures 6 X 6 inches wide by 4 inches deep. Any information on this would be greatly appreciated - I’m a newbie here. When I purchased this it did not come with any label or info on its origin so unfortunately no context. Thank you very much - Stu
  2. Coprolite? Fossilized nut?

    Hello all. I’ve been carrying this specimen for so long now (probably 25 years or more) I don’t remember where I picked it up. Possibly in Monongalia County, West Virginia or Washington County, Ohio. It is reddish brown in color and weighs 53 grams. It seems to be two things mashed together with distinct outer “crusts” and an inner “marrow “. Any help would be much appreciated.
  3. Crassostrea??

    So I only have the faintest idea of what this could be. I vote for the oyster crassostrea since that's what I was told. But now someone told me it was a rudist and im a bit confused. Could it be cretaceous?
  4. A friend found this lovely huge fossil (~2.5") tooth (?) at the W. M. Browning Cretaceous Fossil Park in Baldwyn, Mississippi. What is it???
  5. Can anyone ID this for me?

    It is very heavy. I bought it at a rummage sale in Alliance, NE. Don’t know where it was found. Owner deceased. Nebraska, Panhandle, mystery
  6. Mystery fossil / interesting rock?

    Found this rock in Charmouth beach (south west coast of England) a few months ago. The period is early Jurassic and is generally dated to ~ 190m years ago. I have soaked the rock rock in vinegar solution and gently scrubbed it with a soft toothbrush. I can see the small crustacean imprint in the middle, but I am curious RE the pattern on the top portion and grey rock in the middle. There is nothing on the reverse/I haven't been able to expose anything. Please let me know if you see anything interesting or if it’s just a rock! Thanks, J
  7. Pseudofossil?

    The rock I am posting today does not contain calcium. I does contain agate. It is uniquely formed and is very laminated both on the surface and throughout the agate portion. What do you think, fossil algae or pseudofossil? or
  8. Mystery Cretaceous fossil

    Hi What is fossil it? Campanian Poland
  9. Mystery Skull

    I bought this skull at a bones and brews event. I was told it was a 35 million year old camel skull. However, i noticed thats probably not true. Do any of you guys know what this is?
  10. My daughter found this at Trussell's creek in Alabama; the site is full of Cretaceous marine fossils (80 MYA). It has gone to the Alabama Museum of Natural History, but I don't know what it is.... anyone recognize it?
  11. Mystery find

    Hello all, I found this a couple weeks back and forgot to post about this. Not sure if it's even a fossil, but any ideas are appreciated. I really cant make anything out. My best guess here is a bryozoan or sponge if it was anything. Found in Henry County, Missouri. Assumed age is Osagean, Mississippian, though I am not 100% certain and it could be older than I think.
  12. Marl Slate Mystery Fossil

    this is a fossil from the Permian marl slate of North East England and I cant figure out what it is, im thinking plant but not completely ssure, if it is plant anyone have an ID on species?
  13. ID Help Please

    Last one I hope to get some help on is circular and had me thinking it was a ring when I first pulled it up. It is not metal (tried a magnet) and has the bone sound to it when tapped. Inside seems to have some bone material. Vertebra?
  14. Fossil or just a rock?

    I found this at an Alabama creek recently, among Cretaceous marine fossil deposits. I can't figure out if it is a fossil or not. The scale is in cm. Two pictures of the top, third one of the bottom. What do you think?
  15. I think this may be a mastodon fossil, but I have no real idea. I found it on a beach on north island, Kankakee River, Wilmington Illinois.
  16. Mystery Fossil

    My dad got this from a friend and gave it to me. He has no clue where it came from other than it came somewhere around idaho. Me and him have been trying to identify it for days, and got nowhere. we need help. any hints on ID will help. Thanks!! (P.S. if you know anything about its worth, tell me please!)
  17. What could this be?

    Hi! We live in central Pennsylvania, and found this rock in the woods right around our house. We are very curious as to what the thing sticking out of the rock could be? Any help with this would be great!
  18. Crazy Mystery Fossil

    A friend from California gave this to me many years ago (but I'm not 100% sure it's from California). Does anyone know what it is? IMG_3317.HEIC
  19. Mystery fossil (dinosaur? Cretaceous?)

    Hey all, Can anyone help me ID this fossil? It was found at an antique store with no information. Its density and coloration really reminds me of something from out west, like Hell Creek or Lance Creek. There's also a a semi-circle pattern of holes towards one end that reminds me of a crocodile's bite. Any thoughts on the possible ID or if its something besides a croc bite?
  20. NSR mystery find

    I found this sticking out of a sand bar while walking the North Sulphur River this past weekend. I literally have zero ideas about what it could be. Any ideas?
  21. Found another rock

    Hi, I found another rock in my yard. It's entirely made up of these circle things. Rock is about 9 inches across. Tennessee Thank you in advance, if you know.
  22. Strange find from Lewes.. (Fossil or not)

    Hey all. On my trip to Lewes, DE for my last breath of summer, I couldn't resist the pull of fossils and searched around in a sand and stone store. The seller had some nice shark teeth, arrowheads, and ammonites. We chatted about fossils for a while and then she asked me if I had any idea what this is. She said she found it on a beach near Lewes. Unfortunately she was unable to provide information on what formation it was found in. It may not even be a fossil at all. But it piqued my curiosity and I thought it would be cool to at least post it and see if it was anything. Maybe you native Delawarians could tell me a thing or two. The fossil was quite light, lighter than an arrowhead for sure, but without the consistency of wood, and has small little circles at the bottom. That may just be an anomaly in the rock, but I thought every little detail would matter in this case. Thanks folks,
  23. Unknown

    Found in Kent County, Maryland near Worton. I have no idea what made the impression. The rock's girth is about that of a soda can top.
  24. Hello everyone, had a super quick trip to the cretaceous creeks of new jersey and found this particularly interesting large bone fragment, likely it is a chunk of miscellaneous bone material but it reminds me alot of a scute like ankylosaurus or some sort of other bone scute especially the edge, or from maybe something like a large turtle but I am entirely not sure if it's dinosaur, marine reptile, etc or if there is anyway to tell, looks super suspicious to me anyways so if anyone has any ideas I'd definitely love to hear them. (If more pictures are needed I will definitely be able to get some more angles if necessary)
  25. Found this, not sure tho

    Hi all! Dug around whiskey bridge yesterday and found what resembled a geode. The top part came off so I dug the rest out, any ideas?
