  1. Any ideas on what this might be?

    This comes from 600+ft of water off the coast of maine. It seems to be petrified wood or coral. Any ideas?
  2. Fossilized or no?

    I know that the first crab claw shown is fossilized the center has become stone and the edges where it was broken grey and black, but the second set of pictures I will post is of a claw that leaves me not so sure! It is hard as rock no doubt but the center is hollow and the edges more white which leads me to doubt. Opinions are welcome!
  3. what could this be?

    As soon as I saw this I thought fossil poo but that could just be the way it's worn, any clues?
  4. Coral fossil or just a skeleton?

    Does anyone jnow if this is a coral fossil or just a coral skeleton?
  5. Can anyone help me identify these rocks and whether or not they are fossil imprints? They look like trilobite shapes, but not sure if this is just a natural ripple effect on the rock. Found at Jacalitos Creek in Coalinga, CA. I mostly otherwise find sand dollars and shells in the creek bed.
  6. Agatized Barnacle

    From the album ocean stuff

    Here was a nice surprise. I picked up this fossil cluster of barnacles and noticed a nice layer of agate underneath! When I processed the photo I took of it I saw that the light from my flash dispersed giving this rainbow effect. It's very small but now when I hold to the light I can see the little rainbows!
  7. Bone fossil??

    Hello there! I no little information about fossils but I was really hoping someone could help me out with identifying this fossil? Frankly I’m not quite sure it is a fossil. I’m really curious though and I gladly thank anyone for their time. This small ‘bone’ was found on the shores of North Carolina. It’s a dark brownish color and feels lighter than it looks. (Almost like wood) Thank you guys!
  8. vert from?

    Found these in the big quarry area. So figure Pleistocene to maybe Pliocene. Oh..for those who are not familiar..North West Simi Valley. They have been doing mining so things popping up again. Because of it being a ocean, creek and land environment could be anything. The last one was thought to maybe be elephant. As per Bobby. have no idea on last pic. They are fossils.
  9. Weird seashell?

    Hey all! I know this is probably not a fossil ID but hoping someone can help. I found this seashell in a box of miscellaneous down in my basement. I don’t remember where it came from but it just looks odd to me. Looks as if it’s partially fossilized...can’t explain it. Any my ideas are greatly appreciated!
  10. 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!
  11. Compounded shells, sand and rock

  16. need help with Jaw fossil ID

    I found this fossil on the beach off the coast of North Carolina. It has a shark tooth on one side and a fossil that looks like it is part of a jaw on the other. Any ideas as to what this could be?
  17. Find at North Myrtle Beach, SC

    My son found this today at North Myrtle Beach, SC. We are just wondering if anyone can help us identify what it is? Thanks!
  18. 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...
  19. 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!
  20. Help identify find.

    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?
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
  24. Can someone identify this?

    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.
