  1. Bison bones?

    Hey guys, friend of mine found these bones in Calgary/Alberta while excavating near the river (about 5ish m deep). I figured the head looks like bison, but not sure about the rest of bones. And how old they might be. And anyone knows what’s that white stuff inside of one of the bones? Like calcified bone marrow? Any opinion would be greatly appreciated!!
  2. Could this be a dinosaur egg?

    I know virtually nothing about dinosaur eggs so bare with me. I figured this would be a good place to go to ask about an egg that I was told was an from a dinosaur. It was found in Eastern Montana by a family member. The exact location is unknown but it was in the vicinity of Glasgow, MT. Any insight would be appreciated.
  3. Aw guys I just unearthed my childhood fossil collection and have found that a lot of them have disintegrated into practically dust. Others are growing what looks like mould but is crystalline I think. Is this normal for certain mineral types? And what would you recommend I do to protect the rest?
  4. I recently found a small box of shark teeth that I obtained when I was a kid. It turns out that the labels, when translated from Spanish described the features of the fossils and not the actual species. Quite a number were not even true fossils they were mislabeled recently extinct species. Moral of this story: kids are dumb, and don’t buy fossils unless their labeled with the Latin name.
  5. Help with ID of this bone

    Found in Bremerton, Washington . grappled by a rotted tree and its roots., near the surface. Its big and heavy. Not sure first thought Willy mammoth but was told maybe dinasour nasal cavity.
  6. Awesome forum! Reason I joined...

    Hi all, This is a great forum, very glad to have found it. The reason I was looking for a good source of information on fossils is: I found this today while picking weeds. The teeth appear to be deer, but the "gumline" is wood, or at least something very similar to wood, so I imagine these teeth are fairly old? I would say each row of teeth is about 5 inches long. I can take more pics if anyone likes. Anyone have an estimate of age? Sorry for name of pic, but I found these teeth fascinating and repulsive at the same time.
  7. Need some ID's if possible?

    I was sent some photo's from a friend of mine who asked if I know Genus or species? He has no info of any kind so this may be tuff? He got this stuff from a sale. Any help will be helpfull. Thank you Ron
  8. Ordovician Papers

    Does anyone know if the public can have access to the following research articles. I have failed in my attempts to secure these. !. 1956 Facies of Platteville, Decorah, and Galena rocks of the upper Mississippi Valley Region 2.1957 Upper Middle Ordovician Stratigraphy of Fillmore County, Minnesota Thanks for your help! Mike
  9. Found a tooth on the beach

    I found a tooth on the beach, but I am unable to identify the animal to which it belonged to. It has a width of about 1.5inches, so it is fairly large. Anyone who tries to identify it, your help will be much appreciated.
  10. ID bone, help

    I found this bone (rib) in a cave in Slovenia-EU. ???
  11. Old Bison Horns?

    I'm not sure, but I found what I think is the top of a bison skull with the horns. I found it in central Iowa, sitting on a sand bank in the middle of a river/creek. Could someone tell me if it is? The horns are kind of straighter like an ancient bison, could someone estimate the age and tell me if they think it is? The horn spread is just over 21 inches. It seems pretty old and almost fossilized. Thanks for any help in figuring it out. I'm really interested in what you have to say.
  12. I didnt know where to post this? Its not prepped. It was just found, but sadly, not by me. I just wanted to show this to folks. Too cool not too. If its in the wrong place, please move it. Thanks. My best buddy goes to England every year to metal detect. He met my other buddy, Al Lang, whilst on one of those trips and they became freinds. I was just sent these photos this morning. Really really cool. I only wish that I could prep something like this. Supposed to be 19 Eurypterids on it. Just Wow!!! RB
  13. hey yall

    Hello and howdy to all yall Live in Largo florida and have been finding lots of SHarks Teeth at indian rocks beach.But i find other interesting things. Hope i dont bring up boring stuff thanks for including me.
  14. Lots of Eurypterids

    My buddy Al Lang has been busy digging up some real beauties this year already!!! Thought you all would like to see these. Some really nice big specimens here too!!! RB
  15. My youngest son has been doing some research and has found a trilobite site out in the middle of what I name as 'No where's ville'. Hes going to drag me out there next week. 7 hours of driving, 3 or 4 hours of splittin shale and back home for dinner and bed. Not looking forward to all that driving, but excited to get out and about digging for old bugs. Will update this once we get back. Wish us luck. RB
  16. This was my first ever fossil. It was gifted to me about 10-15 years ago, but i've noticed it now has crusty stuff around it. I don't think it was there before. Is this normal, will it get worse and should i be worried?
  17. Toothed or Toothless?

    Hello fossil wizards, please help. I found this washed up on Myrtle Beach when I was a kid. I think it looks like a tooth? I've always wondered what it is or what it belonged to. It keeps me up at night, haunting me, floating in my mind's eye mouth, 20 years of unidentified oversized toothy torture. Anyway, I would love to finally find out the tooth to this mysterious mystery of the perhaps dental variety & put this & myself to bed.
  18. Just a question here. For anyone who knows me, I one picky son of a gun. I ran into this the other day whilst going through some boxes of stuff. I found this many years ago while hunting in the White River formation in Wyoming with Kent Sundell. I dont want it, but my question is, is this sellable? Im not asking for a price of what it may be worth, but does anyone think that anyone may want a partial skull thats in bad condition? No lower jaws whatsoever! Just wondering? RB
  19. When I moved from Northern California to Montana I got rid of literally tons of fossils. Then about 3 years ago I got rid of about 3 more truckloads to a freind of mine who was starting a rockshop. Still,,,,,, got too much stuff and keep running into stuff Ive forgotten about. I ran into all these today. Not sure if im gunna keep any of these, but sometime this summer im just gunna start selling stuff off and keep doing so till the holidays and then take some time off for selliing. I really do tire of it, but gots to do it. My kids will get a lot of the really good stuff though. Makes for some good christmas presents. RB
  20. What is this?

    Hello! This is was found in the Atlantic Ocean- about 25 miles off the coast of ocean city, Maryland.

  22. I brought home some of my Eurypterids a couple of months ago and came across this specimen while going through them today. Im looking for opinions on whether or not I should go on the 'repair' attack? This one has no paddles/arms. I think I could do a fairly good job, but would this ruin the fossil? Would it increase the value, lessen the value? I really have no idea. I mean, really, what does one do with only a partial Eurypterid? In this case, two of them. Same specimen, but spit in two. RB
  23. Hello all, I was out causing some trouble in my backyard a couple of days ago when I stumbled onto this little guy. I don't really have an idea of how old this find is or what I to do with it for more info since it's only a partial sample, but I would love to hear any details y'all might have to share about this! If you need more pictures please feel free to ask--I will be glad to provide any other info on the find. Happy hunting and have a great weekend!
  24. I found this in Northwest Georgia on a farm. It appears to be a large smooth snail shell with the snail protruding out, Its very cool I just dont know that much about it. The rock itself appears to be made up of layers and is very heavy, maybe from the cretaceous period which would make it 100 million years old at least, It was under the ground maybe two feet. Id say it ways about 12 pounds, If yall could tell me more about it I would appreciate it. PM me or email me at leviself <AT> att.net
  25. Hi, I'm new to this site, and I would like to say hello to everyone, and start off by showing a tooth found in Northern Arkansas near a cave! We have no idea what animal this could be from, or if it is even a fossil. We thought it was.
