  1. Marine tooth

    Hello. I found this tooth on the beach today. I think it might be from a whale or a seal, not quite sure. I do not think it is fossilized, but you guys might know what it is.
  2. Possible wood fossil

    Hello, I just want to say, know it isn't allowed to pick up fossils here in South Africa since it belongs to the state, but the state does not care nor want these fossils, so I have decided to help conserve the fossils by donating them to a local soon-to-be-built museum in our town. So anyways here is the fossil. It was picked up on the main beach of Yzerfontein. So.e of you might be familiar with the West Coast Fossil Park located a few miled away from the town. The fossil looks like a piece of wood. And I managed to break of what seems to be a thorn.
  3. Trilobite id

    Hello again, I have bought a lot of fossils, but don't know all of their id's. So I would love it if someone could help me with my problem. Here is a little trilobite I bought at Magic Minerals near Cape Town, SA. It is just under two centimeters long.
  4. Echinoid id

    Hello again, here is my most beautiful sand dollar fossil. We picked it up yesterday on a beach close to Ruwais, Abu Dhabi, UAE. I have found dozens of these, but rarely find one so flat. I would love to know the species name if possible.
  5. Shells in the desert

    Hello, I found these shells while driving in the dunes in the middle of the desert. I have found fossilized wood and coral close to the location before. They are unfortunately covered in a weird sandstone like material but I hope you can help me identify them. Found near Ruwais, Abu Dhabi, UAE.
  6. Fossil bone id

    I found a sawfish rostrum a while ago, and today I found this piece of bone, it was found in the same location. Abu Dhabi, UAE The bone is slightly curved, I think it might be the filled canal of a sawfish rosstrum, but I might be wrong. I would like to hear from you guys.
  7. Squid and gastopods

    We recently went to Khassab, Oman We went on a tour into the mountains to see some fossils. I would like to know what some of them are. They look like some types of squid with some bivalves.
  8. Spiral fossil

    Found just south of Adairsville, GA I have no idea what it is, but it's something.
  9. I need an ID for this clam. I found this clam in a concretion. it was taken from the Kevin member of the Marias formation. Th Kevin member is listed as Santonian Cretaceous. The location is 5 miles west of Loma Montana.
  10. What kind of Brachiopod is this?

    I found this brachiopod as float on the side of the road. It was very near the transition of Devonian to Mississippian Lodgepole Formation in Little Belt Mountains, in Montana. The fossils is large. I'm thinking it might be a spiriferida.
  11. Crinoids and corals?

    I found these fossils on Jebel Hafeet, Al Ain, UAE. The second rock looks like there is a criniod in it, but is more possibly a type of sponge. The first rock has quite a few things in it, including some type of coral. I would like to know what these really are.
  12. Big vertebra

    My friend has found a lot of fossils, but he doesn't know what they are. This one is some sort of vertebra. My friend found it in south africa. (Scale in cm)
  13. Who's jaw is this

    One of my friends gave me this fossil. He said it came from south africa. Any idea as to whom it belongs?
  14. A big bone

    Hello again, I ffound this bone about 2 years ago close to Mugharaq Port, Ruwais, Abu Dhabi, UAE. It was found in a cliff inside of clay-like rock, it was barely acessable during high tide. It is more then 30cm long. The bone looks like it is made of clay, and was very fragile when i cleaned it, it is now less fragile and hardened. Any clues as to what it is? I think it is some sort of legbone. The town of ruwais used to be a savanna not so long ago, hope that helps.
  15. Teeth or claws?

    I found these teeth-like fossils on a beach close to the Sir Bani Yas ferry jetty, they were laying amoung thousands of tiny shells surrounding a pipe. The first fossil looks to me like a tooth, I have found a sawfish rostrum close to this beach before. The next two fossils have weird holes at the back, it looks like worn down crab pincers.
  16. Weird find

    I found this fossil on a beach close to the Sir Bani Yas ferry jetty in Ruwais, UAE. I have found many invertebrate fossils in this area. This is not an invertebrate! It looks like there are pieces of ribs in the middle. I think it might belong to a turtle. The beach could have been built by pumping sand into the ocean, I don't know if that helps.
  17. Jawbone

    Hello, I have had this fossil for a few years, but I do not know what it is from. I picked it up on a beach in South Africa on the west coast, the beach is a few kilometres from a fossil park that has many similar fossils. I currently do not have the fossil so if no one can identify it due to the quality of the picture I will try again once I have the fossil. It is about 10-12 cm long.
  18. Mystery fossil

    Hello, I am only 13 but I have picked up a lot of fossils. I don't know what half of the fossils are. I hope you can help. I found this fossil on the Jebal Hafeet nountain in Al Ain, UAE. It is very small. I am curious as to what it is. It looks like some sort of coral. The area l found it in was known for its marine fossils. I also found several larger corals on the same mountain.
  19. Possible plant need id

    I found this possible plant fossil. I am hoping for an id. Accompanying this fossil are brachiopods and other marine fossils. This fossil came from the Otter Formation in central Montana. The Otter Formation is listed as an open and semi-restricted marine. This formation is Meramecian and Chesterian Mississippian. The plant appears to be fibrous. No scale structure is present. In very fine sedimentary silty clay shale. These sediments capture fine details. I have included a photo of another fossil group of bryozoa to show the level of preservation of details.
  20. Need help Id may be Trilobites Not sure

    Found fossils in Little Belt Moutain, in Montana. Sandstone, from Park Formation, listed as Franconian, Cambrian. Each fossil fragment is about 5mm. Other fossils present. Need to find the Identification for the dark brown shell-like fossils. I believe they may be parts of trilobite cephalons.
  21. My daughter and I have started fossil hunting and came across this a few weeks ago. Pretty sure the ribbed-item (near the tip of my thumb) is a cephalopod, but unsure what the rest of the white pieces are? Thought they might be pieces of bone, or possibly wood? Not sure? Hoping someone could shed some light. Found this on the Bruce Peninsula (Ontario, Canada), on the Georgian Bay shoreline. Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks, Kristin.
  22. Need ID Please - Possible Mosasaur vert?

    I found this down in our creek in Tennessee and thought it looked like a vertebrae, I chiseled it out of a rock and brought it home. I don't know what it is but the closest thing i could find is a small tail vertebrae of a mosasaur. I need help ID'ing this because I'm not just gonna jump to the conclusion that thats it because a lot of times its just a look a like rock, However I have handled fossils before and this feels like bone. Let me know what you think please.
  23. I apologize if I posted this in the wrong forum. I didn't feel I had the necessary location info to post in the ID forum. I recently acquired a "large collection" of fossil bones, shells, and corals from an estate sale. The collector lived and dug in Texas, Florida, and a little in Pennsylvania. He possibly dug in other regions but I am going on what was labeled and what info I could get from the estate manager. I walked away with roughly 300 bone specimens (sulphur River), 30 coral/shell specimens, and 200ish fossil shark teeth (Sulphur River). Looks like a life collection of choice pieces as far as the bone specimens go. Included in the collection were 20 spearpoints out of (Sulpher River Area), 50ish small mastodon tusk fragments, and some bones and other odds and ends. I am trying to ID and sort the collection but any a advice on how to proceed would be appreciated! The bones were broken down into boxes labeled (Mososaur bones Sulpher River) or (Mososaur/ other bones SR.). all groupings have been kept together. Collection has awesome vertebrae, fin bones, jaw sections (missing teeth) loose teeth, and some nice coral pieces. I may be able to attain more specific info related to the specific locale and formation but the original collector has passed away. Any advice on how to proceed in processing/ piecing out this collection would be appreciated!. I am staying up far later than I should trying to ID and label everything.
