  1. Fossil

    A find from yesterday
  2. Is this fossil coral or just dried coral?

    I bought this a long time ago and always though it is dried coral but its hard to tell searching online. Also not sure if its rose coral,brain coral.
  3. I need help identifying this Bone I found after a storm at OBX. The sandal in the picture is a mans size 10.
  4. Texas City Dike Bison Tooth?

    One of the only fossils I managed to find at the Texas City dike this weekend, which is well-known as a site for Pleistocene fossils from the Beaumont Clay formation that are pulled to the surface during dredging operations in the nearby shipping channel. I know this tooth isn't Equus, so maybe bison? Any help would be appreciated!
  5. Bone found on Holden Beach, NC

    Found this on the beach at Holden Beach, NC. I don't know much about bones and fossils, but it passed the "lick" test. I looked for similar images online and most didn't look to be this worn/polished around the edges, so my uneducated mind is guessing it's fairly old. And it does appear to be fossilized...not terribly heavy, but feels more rock-like than bone-like (compared to a whale bone carving I happen to have that is about twice the size of this, but lighter). Any idea what animal this might be from? Thanks for your help! IMG_8934.HEIC IMG_8933.HEIC IMG_8930.HEIC
  6. Do any of you guys know what it is?
  7. Belemnite ID request

    Here is another item from my unidentified drawer I'm hoping someone will be able to put a name on. Thanks.
  8. Hello! So I found this little specimen at the oregon coast. Specifically the beaches between Neskowin and Lincoln city. Its about an inch long and it is incredibly smooth. Is this a plant fossil? or animal? .... Just a shell fragment? Lol Any ideas or information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  9. Fossil plant I

    Good morning all!. Finally spring here in Kansas City!. Went out over lunch to a road cut yesterday and found the following smaller "plant" remnants (in three posts). Added my most recent "petrified wood" at the end of this as well- a large, 13lb piece- heavier than the larger one I will place in an album on the forum soon! Need some help (as usual ) on these. They are all Pennsylvanian, but they come from three layers, that unfortunately I don't know-new road cut. The first, and most interesting, is the "branch" that has a cobblestone appearance- whether this is the plant or something that was growing on it? Very close, or "on it" are some shell fragments, so I believe it's likely oceanic in origin? On the backside though it is more interesting, as there is a separate fossil with rounded overlapping "flakes" similar to scales or some of the "burrows" that I've seen on the posts- the edge though is linear striations-so any thoughts welcomed! -maybe just a different crystalline formation even? Bone And on the backside-these images of something else?
  10. Potential concretion?

    Found this at a undisclosed spot near Ventura, also found a large fossil shell deposit potentially from Pliocene. Will post pictures if people want me to. Btw if you have any clue or want pics of the other side of this please comment!
  11. A new study shows that stony corals, which provide food and shelter for almost a quarter of all ocean species, are preparing for a major extinction event. Researchers identified an increased prevalence of certain traits found with previous extinction-survival characteristics among corals. By studying the fossil record of coral skeletons, they were able to determine that corals are showing some survival traits that match the last major extinction event 66mya. These traits include an increase in deep water residence, cosmopolitan distributions, smaller colonies, non-symbiotic relationship to algae and higher resistance to bleaching. The study also discusses in detail the comparison to primates and discusses how primates don't show the same survival characteristics that some corals do. Finally the authors state that the corals that are likely to survive extinction are less likely to be from tropical coral reefs and more likely to be from smaller, solitary, slower growing & deep dwelling corals. https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2020/03/200303113246.htm Gal Dishon, Michal Grossowicz, Michael Krom, Gilad Guy, David F. Gruber, Dan Tchernov. Evolutionary Traits that Enable Scleractinian Corals to Survive Mass Extinction Events.

  12. Found tooth on North Carolina beach

    Hey all! I am an avid shark tooth hunter located in the Carolinas. I stumbled across these teeth and have no idea what they are. I was wondering if anyone could help me identify them or steer me in the direction of somebody who can. Thank you for your time and help!
  13. Hello, I am new to the forum and hoping I’m in the right column, section, to ask if anyone has seen this type of fossil and can identify it for me? My daughter and I found it on the Indian Shores beach. Any info would be helpful! Thank you!
  14. Tooth

    Hey guys I found this 2 days ago, on the same place as the other ones, Pleistocene deposits south of Charleston, I was wondering if I could get this tooth identified. It is for sure carnivore. (it is hollow on the inside as well) Sorry guys I tried to crop and brighten but it didn't work out. Thanks, Wyatt
  15. Petrified wood but what else?

    Found in pacific city Oregon. My daughter found this on the beach and thought it was a cool fossil rock. After getting it home I noticed the rings and I am fairly certain it is petrified wood but what are the holes? Some are hard packed with sand (rock hard, cant break it up) and others have crystals in them. This area is well known for agate, not sure if that has anything to do with it. Very unique, if it is truly petrified wood I have never seen any like this.
  16. Skull Found on Atlantic Shoreline

    Can anyone identify this what type of marine life this skull is part of? I found it today along the East Coast of United States - Atlantic Ocean Spoon in photo for scale. The strange up raised markings on top are perplexing. Type of Eel perhaps? It's wet from me rinsing it in sink. Thank you!
  17. Found in Dominican Republic

    Hello, My brothers friend recently found this beauty by a crop field in Bayaguana Dominican Republic (first and second picture). I believe it was found near water, a river of some sort. We can not figure out what it is, but while hunting the internet I came across the third picture which was posted on a tourist site and claimed to be found in Sosua Dominican Republic which is in the northern part of the island and by the ocean. Can anyone tell me what this could be, what could have made that shape?
  18. Found in Wildwood Crest, NJ

    I found this on a family vacation this August on the beach at Wildwood Crest, NJ in the ocean. It is 4.5 cm long, 2.5 cm wide and .75 cm tall. Does anyone know what this is?
  19. Bones Found in Ocean Cave

    Hey guys, I've found some bones and want to see if anyone is able to identify them for me. So while snorkeling off the coast of Rarotonga in the Cook Islands I found a spine of some sort. It was resting inside the opening of a cave. The length of spine that was visible to me was about half a metre maybe just over half a metre long. Each single vertebrae was about 20cm wide. Please view the photo provided. (Sorry I'm having trouble uploading the photo, I'm gonna try again in the morning..) Any help or input is greatly appreciated thank you
  20. Help Identifying - Tusk?

    Hi- we are new to this forum and have great interest in finding out what we picked up this weekend after Hurricane Dorian on the beach in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. We actually drove from Ohio Friday night to look for sharks teeth and came home with a few (nothing sizely this visit) and this piece of what we believe to be fossilized tusk.

  22. No Idea What This is!

    Hi there! My partner took a trip to San Francisco and I asked him to bring me back a shell(I collect shells) and he comes home with this! I'm absolutely stumped! No idea what this could be. Input?

  24. Help to id fossil

    Recently found all at Myrtle Beach S.C. I also found shark teeth just don't know what these are. Any help much appreciated.
  25. Modern Shark tooth identification

    Hello, I´m not sure about the ID. For me the tooth looks like a Hemipristis or a bull shark tooth. The tooth is from the Indo-Pacific (Phillippines) and 1/2" (1,5cm) in lenght. I want to be sure with the ID because I do not want to buy a tooth of a protected species. I don´t know, if the question is correctly ask in the Fossilforum, but I hope, that you can help me. Kind regards from Germany
