  1. Receiving this gorgeous but mysterious specimen is from Upper Pennsylvanian limestone dated around 290-300 million years ago from somewhere around Kansas City. Looks like a tooth to me and my best guess would be orodus? But I have little experience with Pennsylvanian shark teeth in general and especially from this area, also cannot find a comparison elsewhere online. Any help will be appreciated.
  2. Huge unidentified tooth

    Ok so i have this tooth for years now.. My dad dug it out in coal mine in Bosnia, and i would really like to know from what kind of animal is it.. i was pointed to this forum so here it is.. i hope for some interesting comments..
  3. Anyone know what this bone might be?

    This bone was recovered from the banks of a creek full of Cretaceous fossils in Montgomery, AL. All images are different views of the same object. Any ideas?
  4. Probably not a fossil

    Hi there can anyone identify the species/age. guessing old due to the condition of teeth. also found in The Cotswolds. ignore back ground clutter of the photos.
  5. Mysterious fossil

    Found this on the Jurassic Coast, Osmington Bay.
  6. Unknown Acquisition

    I bought a small fossil collection that contained several Erismatopterus levatus and it also contained several unidentifiable and unlabeled items, in particular this piece. It reminds me almost of a placoderm skull plate, but I honestly don't have any idea. There's area of denticles on the side of the fossil.
  7. Poteau Library

    Found this oddity while cleaning underbrush at our WPA library in Poteau, OK. The area is Pennsylvanian in age but I’m not sure this isn’t geologic or relic. Any thoughts?
  8. Are these Crinoid Stem?

    These were found in the same place, in black shale, in West Virginia. Are these both crinoid stem? Thank you for your help!
  9. We split open this rock yesterday and it has a mirror image of two things I am not sure of. #1 I see some shell... #2 Vegetation?
  10. Unusual Markings Shark Tooth

    Hi, This question is between categories. Has anyone seen markings (numbers) on a shark tooth like this? I have tried to wipe them off with acetone, and they will not come off. Any idea how they were applied or how to remove them?
  11. 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
  12. 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.
  13. 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?
  14. A friend found this lovely huge fossil (~2.5") tooth (?) at the W. M. Browning Cretaceous Fossil Park in Baldwyn, Mississippi. What is it???
  15. 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
  16. 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
  17. 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
  18. Mystery Cretaceous fossil

    Hi What is fossil it? Campanian Poland
  19. 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?
  20. 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?
  21. 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.
  22. 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?
  23. 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?
  24. 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?
  25. 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.
