  1. My agatized "knuckle bone" fossil

    Hi everyone, I was given this fossil from a friend. It came out if a collection that was given to him by a friend. I'm assuming it is a form of sea life as there were other shell fossils with it. If you hold it up to a flashlight the light passes through it and illuminates it. My friend does not know anything about it. Can u please help me identify it? Thank you!

  9. I came across this in the Puget Sound area (U.S. Pacific Northwest) along the water a few days ago. Wondering if anyone can shed some light on the specifics of what it is, and which era and period it might be from. Is this considered fossilized? It's fairly clean, but wondering what is the best way to clean it (toothbrush and warm soapy water?) Pardon my newbie knowledge on this-- just looking to learn. Thanks!
  10. Vertebrae?

    My brother found this in a creek and the porous texture and divot on one end would seem to point towards a vertebrae of some kind, but I've never found anything like it before. Anyone know what it is/how I could tell for sure if it is a vertebra, or just some kind of coral or cephalopod...

    Hello. I found this "thing" on the ocean floor while diving in the Philippines. It looks kind of like a tooth of a marine animal, probably not a shark. Any ideas?
  12. 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.
  13. Is this a bone?

    My daughter and I love to collect shells, fossils, shark teeth, etc... I collected this from an unusual location...a yard sale lol Bought it along with a few sea shells. Thought it somewhat resembled a bone. It looks like it came from the ocean due to the texture. It weighs 10.3 oz, so somewhat heavy for its size.
  14. Bone or fossil?

    Hi all, we found this at the beach today - doesn't look like a marine mammal, and my guess is recent storm run off brought it down a creek. Any idea if it is a fossil or just a bone? Seems like a cow/bison cervical vertebrae, perhaps.

    It really looks like a bone but id like to know what animal the bone came from. Found it along the beach in Florida. About the size of a quarter.

  20. I am interested in finding out if the following item is a fossil (at all). I found the item along the shoreline while looking for interesting pebbles.

Thank you for any assistance.

  22. Hi there! Can someone please tell me what this is? Found on the shore of the Texas dike among a scattered pile of sun bleached bones. Thought it was interesting, and would like to know what it came from. I am fairly sure it is not fossilized, but figured I'd give it a shot. Fossilized or not it's pretty cool. Thanks! Lauren
