  1. North Carolina Puzzler

    Never seen one like this before, and after scouring my books I've come up with a blank for ID. Maybe a fish crushing tooth, or a plate, or even some loose teeth fused together? Possibly some kind of scute?? But from what, or am I way off base? What do ya' think? Collected from an Early Pleistocene, Waccamaw formation site, Columbus Co, Southeastern North Carolina. The site is primarily a shell bed, with some fish bits, and an occasional small shark tooth. Scale is 1mm.
  2. I recently purchased this along with a number of other fossils. The only drawback was that there was absolutely no information to be had on them, but I jumped at it since it was such a good deal. Now I'm hoping that somebody out there may have an idea what type of wood this is and where it might come from.
  3. Brachiopods with pyrite.

    From my farm pond dig site. Brachiopods with pyrite. 70 MM. 2 views, Allegan County West Michigan. Plus 2 more one week ago.
  4. Sandy Siltstone Plate

    This plate was in with a bunch of other fern fossils I picked up. What all can you tell me you see in it please.
  5. French or US Plate?

    Ihad this plate labelled Fish from the tertiary of France ,i had this typical Dapalis Macrurus from the Oligocene of Aix en Provence at the same time;but i had a real doubt about the multi-fish plate.Oilshale was very kind to help me and he think it could be US
  6. Fossil has inclusion

    Hi, I pulled this Crinoids fossil hash plate out of a hill today. I may have seen the mystery in Lake Michigan mud stone, but not raised up or nearly as large. Ideas? Thanks. item is 4 in x 2 5/8th x 7/8th thick. unknown item is 1 in long x 1/2 inch wide.
  7. Hello! This one looks suspect to me. The smoothness of the bones and the lack of closeup photos to see any air bubbles/casting artifacts makes it hard to discern here. I'm also going to call out the little crevice surrounding the fossil that separates it from the matrix, which to me suggests it was planted into the surrounding rock. Info: Ichthyosaur communis Llavernock beach, South Whales, UK
  8. Fossil Frames

    I created these fossil frames for my finds on trips to Kemmerer and Delta. They were a fair amount of work but I thought I'd share the design because I haven't seen anyone selling similar frames. I think the open space shows the fragility of the rock along with its natural shape instead of trapped in a rectangular frame. And I love collecting the accompanying negative impression. If you have any of your own designs, I'd love to see them! (no offense if this doesn't count as prep, but couldn't find display as a category) Cheers.
  9. Prehistoric crocodile

    Found these partial plates in the sawmill creek I am curious to know what the long pieces in the top right corner are found them with the plates if anybody with more information could help please found in Summerville ,South Carolina sawmill creek
  10. ID - Fish Plate?

    Looking to get an ID on this little guy. I’ve found one or two before this one. Some kind of back plate perhaps?
  11. Hash plate with crinoids

    A friend of mine gave this beauty, he found it in Northern Kentucky. It's odd because Northern Kentucky isn't to far away from me, yet I never find them on the river here in Southeast Indiana.
  12. Show us your Scutes!

    Scutes are thickened bony dermal plates that can be found on turtles, crocodiles, birds, and many other animals. Because they are made of hard material, they are more likely to fossilize and remain preserved for millions of years. My personal fossil collection, which consists of an estimated 7,000-8,000 specimens, contains only a few scutes, which leads me to believe they are a rather uncommon find. Of course, this could very well only be the case with the geologic formations that I have collected from. Perhaps scutes are plentiful at other fossil sites around the world. I will include a few examples of the scutes from my collection. I encourage any members who have scutes in their collections to share pictures and details on their animal of origin, location at which they were collected, and size. Hopefully we'll all get to see some incredible specimen and collectively obtain a better understanding of scutes! Thanks in advance to all who will share! Pictured, in order: Crocodile scute, Calvert Formation, ~1 in. Ray scute, Calvert Formation, 3/4 in. Ray scute, Calvert Formation, 1/2 in. Boxfish scute, Aquia Formation, 3/4 in.
  13. I've found a blob me thinks. Came across this on the Whitewater River, Southeast Indiana. What the heck do you think is in this? I see a Leptaena.
  14. The Bugaloos

    A recent online purchase. The only thing I know is it was shipped from China. Any chance on at least some sort of ID beyond "insect"? Seller doesn't give any information on it.
  15. # plate show us yours

    Hash plates are among my favourite of fossils and they are fantastic to photograph. So please add some of your beautiful photographs of your stunning plates. Properly one of my favourite Hash Plate. I found it in a river in Wales Uk when I was 16 and camping . It reminds me of the The Nazca Lines , Nazca Desert, in southern Peru.
  16. Made it to NSR yesterday, managed a nice haul. Was a bit hazardous in the rain, but the isolation was nice. Wondering especially about the plate, but any knowledge dropped on me is always appreciated!
  17. Dunkleosteus armor/possible jaws

    From the album Sharks and fish

    Front side of armor which I believe could be the edge of the jaws! It comes to what would have been the razor sharp shearing edge, greatly worn down now, though. I also believe it could be the jaw because of the clear vertical wear lines on the surface, from being sheared against the inner surface of the other jaw, which is how they kept the edges razor sharp like scissors. I have seen similar wear lines on placoderm shearing jaws, so what I believe to be reasonable observations point to the possibility(maybe even likely?)of being from the cutting edge of the jaws.
  18. Ichthyosaur stomach contents

    From the album Marine reptiles and mammals

    Cross sections of the stomach, full of squid/cephalopod hooks and beaks, of an early Jurassic ichthyosaur (Stenopterygius quadriscissus). One slice has the animals ribs, the lighter tan objects, around the stomach, while the other is entirely of the stomach contents.
  19. Odd plate with crinoid.

    This one has a decent sized crinoid on one side of the rock, but the other has this weird plate. Is it just a different type of rock within the matrix, or part of something else? Probably Michigan/Indiana. (6/8)
  20. I was scouring over a plate I recently collected and noticed this "face-like" feature. Any ideas? Sorry couldn't get extreme close up as the iPhone camera isn't great for that.
  21. Can use some help with a few IDs

    I've been trying to ID all the little fossils on this plate besides the Mioplosus. So far I see two mollusks, a tiny clam, a possible burrow, and a shrimp. Can someone help me figure out if my observations are correct? Second picture is a close up of the shrimp.
  22. Bolaspidella housensis?

    Hello TFF. I have this little 3'' mortality plate here from wheeler shale. I think these are bollaspidella housensis but I'm not 100% sure....any help would be greatly appreciated!
  23. North Sulphur River ID

    Can anyone help me ID this find? I found it in the North Sulphur River in March of this year. I was guessing some sort of scute or plate? Maybe skin? Thanks!
