  1. tooth in coral?

    My family and I usually visit the Frio River in Leakey, Tx every summer. A few years ago we were all set to go swimming but upon arriving we saw that the part of the river we usually frequent had dried up. I decided to make the best of it and explored the dried river bed looking for anything interesting when this isolated chunk of rock caught my eye. I picked it up off the ground, took it home with me, put it in a drawer and forgot about it. A few months ago I found it while doing some cleaning and realized it had to be something more than just an oddly shaped rock. I cleaned it with water and a toothbrush after reading online that that's a simple way to clean fossils. A friend of mine with limited knowledge of fossils suspected it was some kind of fossilized coral or sponge. What I originally thought was matrix does look a lot like syringopora, but I can't find pictures of any prehistoric coral fossils that match the appearance of that hot dog in the center! I saw a sperm whale tooth on this forum that looks similar but I'm not sure if what I found feels like a tooth. It feels way too smooth to me. I love fossils and I own some shark teeth, coprolite, and a little trilobite, but those were all bought. If whatever this is turns out to be something, then it would be the first fossil I've ever acutally found myself. I'm still really new to this so please forgive me if I am asking silly questions or submitting this incorrectly. Any insight would be greatly appreciated!
  2. Montana find

    What is this?
  3. Looking to put the boat in the water and hitting a few spots throughout the week. I am looking to get out at low tide. I have a spot or two in mind. Looking for a few more spots to go besides the more popular areas. If you know of some good places and would like a free boat ride and some fossil hunting after these heavy rains send me a PM.
  4. I found this 1 1/2 inch piece in the North Sulphur River bottom (Ladonia, Texas) over the weekend. It has a layer of shiny yellowish brown in the center, and a thinner layer of the same material across the top. Somewhat porous. Any ideas?
  5. KY RIVER FIND

  6. NC & VA Rivers

    Can anyone explain why the majority of rivers in NE NC and SE VA have most of their high banks/ bluffs on the southern (right) sides? And please let me know if I have that wrong and they're not skewed that way.....but it does seem like that. Thanks.
  7. New here to the forum and to fossil hunting. Found a few teeth over the past few weeks was hoping to get some help with identification and where to find more in the low country. Living in mount pleasant with access to a 23 foot bay boat as well as a few paddle boards. Would love to meet some great people with the same interests as myself and my wife. We would love to host some new friends on our boat for some hunting. If you are in the area and wouldn't mind the company of some newbs that are eager to learn and hunt send me a PM. We are looking forward to becoming knowledgeable on the area and meeting others that share our interests. I have attached a picture of a few of the things we found any help on ID would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  8. Could this be bone?

    I found this in the North Saskatchewan river in Alberta, could ths be a fossil? there is no coating on this it is just that smooth. it is 3" long and 2" at its widest point.
  9. Hi! I found this in a beach in the Savannah River. Its 3.5 inches long and 1.5 inches thick on the middle. It has a weird curveness that you can appreciate better on the Side 4 pictures. It made me think of where the other jaw tooth fits?! I looks like a sperm whale tooth but I'm not sure. Any input is greatly appreciated!!!
  10. I found this in the Green River near Black Diamond Wa. It appears to be a seed pit? or can it be something else? Geologic age is Tertiary
  11. Hello! I'm so happy to find this great forum. It's always nice to find a new site full of good people and great information. I have enjoyed spending time in nature for as long as I can remember. Walking along rivers looking for animals, fossils or arrowheads is one of my favorite ways to spend an afternoon. I was out today and came across this tooth. It struck me as being out of the ordinary. Looking through dozens of images on the internet it resembles cow, deer or taipur. This was found at the edge of a small river right at the shoreline. The river is in Illinois about 20 miles West of Chicago. Any help is greatly appreciated and thank you for allowing me to join and post here. Please let me know if you want more photos, further description of the item or where it was found. Thank you! Seb
  12. A few years ago, I found a fossilized something on the Beach at Cape Henlopen. It was embedded in quartz. It looked kinda like a belemnite, but the wrong material. I was told by Plax that it was much older than our cretaceous belemnites. I tucked it into a spot on the shelf and wondered about it. Since then I have seen a few posts here and there from folks in NJ finding nice little paleozoic pieces on their side of the bay as well. This summer, I made it a mission to explore the Delaware beaches and see what I could find and how far north they went. I began at the cape and worked my way north, one beach to a trip. Cape Henlopen's beach is rather lacking in pebbles this season, so not much to find, but I know they turn up! I have spotted them here and there in the intervening years. The next few trips were Bowers Beach. Oh, yeah! Some are impressions of brachiopods and crinoids are so tiny in big pebbles that is just isn't worth it to take them home and wonder where on that pitted rock I found something recognizable. Others are very distinct chunks of coral replaced with chert, some with crystal quartz in the gaps between structural elements. Each time, I came home with a couple of fistfuls of nice little pieces, mostly about 1" across. The next stop was the beach in Battery Park, in New Castle. This is not a nice bathing beach. It is on a heavily-industrialized section of the Delaware River. The beach is littered with slag, brick, glass and bits of other man-made "rock." But, the black slag definitely allows the brown chert to stand out more. Bingo! The prettiest horn coral I've found yet, plus a few other nice goodies. All told, I came home with about as much as I usually find at Bowers, but cutting my travel time from over an hour to just 20 minutes. *Insert Happy Dance Here!* The last stop was a rare little stretch of river bank in Claymont, a mile or so from the northern border. The stretch was pretty narrow and short. There were plenty of pebbles, but not much chert. Nothing distinctly fossilized. Oh, yeah, and on the way BACK, I found, facing into the woods and hidden by the vegetation, a "No Trespassing" sign. Now they tell me. Ah, well, now I know it isn't worth the trouble anyway. The Delaware Geological Survey, as far as I can find, has no public record of fossils at the beach. They note the Cretaceous at the C&D Canal, the Miocene in a farm field that got bulldozed for a highway, Pleistocene silicified wood in the fields and streams just south of the canal, and plant impressions from the canal down to the southern border. The corals and other marine impressions in the chert are Paleozoic, possibly Devonian or Silurian, but no one seems quite sure. They were part of the ancient sea bed when the Cretaceous stuff at the canal was still alive and can be found in the pebbles there, too, occasionally. I find it really neat and kind of surreal to think about all those fossils that were ancient when my ancient sea shells were still alive.
  13. Hi folks, My area in eastern WV is primarily devonian but the map shows some areas along the river as quaternary. The next time I go there, I plan to investigate some of the high banks, small cliffs and generally keep an eye peeled for anything out of the ordinary. What, if anything could I expect to find in this area ? Just wondering what features to focus on and what might be there ....... if anything. Thanks for any guidance.
  14. Shore Treasures

    Several years ago, I found a brachiopod and some rugose coral embedded in a couple pebbles while beach combing at Cape Henlopen State Park. I found another few wandering inland at the park. A few years later, I found one at Bowers Beach. This summer I've made it a project to see how much I can find and how far north it goes. My guess is all the way up the river, but I'll stick to DE for now. This week's stop was Battery Park in New Castle. Sure enough, among the chunks of industrial slag and other miscellaneous rubble were several distinct corals. Also found at bowers beach were two pieces of petrified wood. The marine fossils are all from the Paleozoic, but which era I haven't narrowed down yet. The DE Geological Survey doesn't seem to have any published documentation on it. The wood is pleistocene. It was found on Bowers Beach and most likely washed down from a known area of southern New Castle County/Northern Kent County. Next stop: an off-the-beaten-path access point for the Delaware River in Claymont, about as far north as I can get and still be in Delaware!
  15. worms?

    Hi Could anyone shine some light on what these may be ? My dad found them in a river circa 1960 and has always thought they were worms. Any information would be appreciated. Thanks in advance
