  1. Rock or petrified toe???

    My dad found this rock in the Vermillion River in Illinois last weekend during a camping trip. While my dad insists it's a petrified toe or a toe that was possibly covered in mud then compressed (or something of the like???? I'm not quite sure...), I personally think it's just a rock. Can someone please help officially determine what exactly it is? Thank you! -Abby
  2. Possible fossil find. Need ID

    Bottom is the size of a Kennedy Half Dollar. Found in a river bed of the Los Padres Nat'l forest in Southern California. Have found other fossils here in the past. Mostly clam shell fossils. Thanks! Dave
  3. Can use some help please

    I feel like these may be something plant related because of the structure, small dots on the one piece, and the leaf print I see on a couple of the pieces. I found several pieces similar to these in the same area . Some are really dark and heavy/dense. Some look squared off or broken off at the bottom. They just look uncommon or unlike the other rocks found around that area. Found in a river in mid Ohio area. Any ideas ? Thanks for all your help!
  4. Hi Everybody.. I'm not a fossil hunter (just an interested bystander), but my five-year old son found this while exploring the shallows of the Rio Grande near our home, just north of Albuquerque, New Mexico. I'm 99% sure its fossilized and not just a bone. It's about 9 cm by 5.5 cm. You can see its smooth and curved on one side, and has a sort of sponge-like texture that would remind you of the inner part of a bone on the other. Any guesses on what it could be? Thanks in advance for any input!
  5. Is this bone?

    Hey everyone, This is on another site. They are stuck between claw or talon. Thoughts? Found in the mud in the Walnut River, Kansas.
  6. Fossil bone?

    Anyone know what this is from. Found under a bridge on the Smokyhill River
  7. Is this a fossil or just two different rock types. One softer that has worn in the shape of a tooth? I found it in a river in Wicklow in Ireland. Any comments appreciated.
  8. Some Sort of Jaw?

    Hey Fossil Gang, I had a surprising find along Canon River in Northfield Minnesota (coordinates 44.461901, -93.158759). I was skatingboarding and noticed that the banks of the river were pretty rocky so I thought it would be worth investigating, sure enough I found what appeared to be some sort of bone attached to a piece of rock protruding about half way out of the sandy soil. To me it looks like some sort of mammal jaw although I'm not sure (new to fossil hunting). I'm not sure but it seems to be more modern. If any of y'all have any input it would be greatly appreciated!
  9. Fossils in own backyard!

    So, I was bored one day and decided to head into my woods behind my house. It is an area named possibly after the squaw Indians. I obviously have ventured into my backyard woods many times and have found unusual things. I have been metal detecting and other things. So on this day I was looking for rocks to bust open or just anything cool. All in this day I found everything in the pictures, a rock with really rough garnet, and a 1900s bottle dump. What a weird day, I didnt know this area had so much history. I assume a glacial process carved out the valley as it is shaped like a V with the tips of the top of the V being the backyards of peoples houses. So I found this rock and bust it open after seeing shell imprints. Boom, brachiopods galore. I just think its really cool how you never know where a fossil may be hiding. I have many other chunks of this fossil aswell. I have not found much else other then the other quartz rock I believe to be coral that I'm waiting to have ID'd currently. I did find another rock that was like a sandstone possibly that also had shells and brachs but it was smaller and not as nice. I have misplaced it at the moment so no pic. For reference on where these were found check this Squaw Brook Rd, North Haledon, New Jersey. I wouldnt come looking for fossils as this is the only one I have found after hours of searching.
  10. All were found NSR today. I am really guessing on both. I am going turtle pleural bone just from the pictures I have seen. Other than a really small mosasaur I am clueless on the verts.
  11. Bone fragment?

    Found this today in Goliad texas, exploring a river. Appears to be a bone? Or a tooth? Any help appreciated!
  12. Newbie - Aust Cliffs UK Finds

    Hi I took only my second trip out fossil hunting over the weekend and found what to me are some great finds. Any help with ID would be greatly appreciated, i believe the vertebrae to be a pretty good example of an ichthyosaur vertebrae but other than that i am pretty clueless. These were all found at Aust Cliffs near Bristol in the UK.
  13. Why I like the NSR..

    Yesterday started like most Saturday's now. Got up, had some coffee, headed to Buc-Ee's and was at the NSR close to sunrise. My plan was to go to an area that I normally cannot get to when the water is up. I don't do the canoeing thing. There was another fossil hunter there that early which is unusual. I normally see others but it is later in the morning. I grabbed my back pack and 2 lbs sledge. Then I headed out with the sun still behind them morning clouds. I get to the location, as with most NSR locations, it has been hunted quite a bit lately. I have hunted this same out stretch 4 times prior in the last three weeks. I am not talking about a very large area. Probably half an acre. Doesn't talk long to just walk it but there are bushes now, it has rocks piled up pretty high. You do have to get on yur hand and knees sometimes. Move some decent size rocks. Actually got really lucky and didn't have to bust open 100 rocks to find stuff. Everything was in the open or someone, or the river, had busted them open for me. Some of my finds from yesterday. Trigonia sp. with calcite is the largest I have found at 5in x 4in x 3.5in. I also do not normally keep the exogyra ponderosa but this one was rather large and had an attached bottom valve in pretty good shape. Weird brain looking rock. Small clams in calcite. Not sure about the other interesting looking rock. Here are some pics.
  14. Belemnites?

    Hello everyone. Picked this group of what I believe are belemnites while hunting in the NSR. There are a lot of belemnites castings within the NSR. Mainly small pieces of black or red. Blacks are much more common. Then, like the NSR seems to do, you get something like this that makes me have to come here and bug you folks. All I have done is brushed it with water and a toothbrush. It was found near the Ben Franklin bridge. Here are the questions. Is it a group of belemnites? What species if possible? Do they have the actual shell? By the way the "shell" has almost a coffee sheen to it when wet.
  15. Possible Coral Fossil?

    Hi I was hoping for a little help with a fossil ID. I’m not even sure this thing is a fossil. I did my first fossil search yesterday at the W.M. Browning Cretaceous Fossil Park in Frankstown, Mississippi. I found lots of oyster species and a few gastropods, but this oddly shaped rock caught my eye. It’s a flat equilateral triangle about 1cm deep and maybe 5cm long on all sides. If anybody has any guesses I’d love to hear your thoughts.
  16. Turtle Scute and Unknown Bone

    Hey Everyone, Yep me again. First is what might be a turtle scute. I am getting better at identifying things but these two I need help with. Second I am not sure about. I think it might be a phalanx from a mosasaur but it is not con caved on one end. Both are protruding. Thanks in advance for any help.
  17. North Texas Ammonites

    Hey Everyone, Ammonites are my favorite. Gastropods are a close second. I live near Rockwall, tx and hoping to find an area to get some decent ammonites. I have search, Lake Worth, Lake Texoma, several creeks and NSR. I can normally find something in NSR but they are small and broken. I have a nice one from Texoma, 14" in or so, but I see all the videos of private creeks, etc. Anyone have a spot they are willing to give some information on. Planko
  18. Fossil Noob in need of assistance!!

    Hiya!! Fossil Noob in need of assistance!! Sorry in advance for not having a ruler, I will make sure I get one! I found these two rocks sitting on the river bed, the hot weather means the river is shallow at the moment. They were found in a village called Rosebank near Glasgow on the river Clyde, which I've been told is apparently in the carboniferous belt across central Scotland. Any tips, pointers or advice would be greatly appreciated as I would love to learn more. My own research has not really pointed me in any direction and these might be nothing! Stay safe everyone!
  19. Mammal Bone?

    Hi everyone! We found this in northeast Florida. I think it may be a piece of a joint? Its about 3cm long and 2cm wide. Any ideas on identification would be great!
  20. Recently I took a trip up to central New Jersey in the US with my sister for our 2nd trip fossil hunting; at a place called “big brook preserve”. As I was sifting through looking at some fossils that I could identify such as shark teeth and fossilized poop with my very basic studying from the Internet and stuff I’ve seen on tv. She calls me over at something she had found while sifting through the dirt in the brook. Thinking that I’d be able to identify it for her I was stumped. it looks like it has characteristics of a fossil from what I think but with my limited knowledge and understanding I keep going back to the idea of “nah it can’t be” And thinking it’s just a cool rock. Either way the water seemed to do a number on this this find eroding it over the years. Also the finds in this brook are usually Cretaceous period specimens and the occasional dinosaur fossil is rare, and reptile fossils are a tiny bit rare too here I think. I have a couple pictures that I took that night when we returned home. I’ll take better lit pictures if these aren’t adequate enough, but the main question I have that’s been bothering me is; is it a rock or a fossil from something once living? Side note the front is slightly smoothed/curved and the back is mostly flat. Please and thank you to anyone willing to help. I’ve also taken the time since then to email 2 local universities for assistance too if that’s even possible.
  21. Two Ammonites and 2 Bone Pieces

    Hey Everyone, Needed to take some PTO due to everything at work. Those 14-16 hour days get to you after awhile. As is my normal I spent quite a bit of my mornings at NSR. Had quite a bit of luck. I found three things this morning I need help with. I was near the Bushy Creek meeting with the NSR. Some material had fallen from above. It was a mixture of the red matrix and a mustard color matrix. Actually quite a bit had fallen. Spent about an hour looking through it and found the ammonites and one bone. Smaller ammonite is reddish and fairly stable. Larger is the mustard color and very unstable. Only prep on either was with water and a soft bristle toothbrush. I am thinking Pachydiscus (P.) Paulsoni for them but something is off for me. Also, in one of the pics of the larger is that the shell fossilized? One bone reminds me a vert but the three things on the one side I have not seen. Other looks like part of a sheel fragment but have no idea what from? As always, any help is appreciated.
  22. Hey Everyone, I was wondering if anyone knew whether or not it is allowed to remove fossils from the Spring Creek in Garland, Tx. I have not found anything definite. Might just be tired though. Thanks for any help, Planko
  23. Best Teeth to Date!

    Had an amazing day at the river this morning and found the best teeth I have found to date! Largest semi-complete meg, and two great whites over 2”! The largest being 2.25” which is my new best GW. I saw the corner of the largest great white sticking out of the formation and low and behold it was complete (minus 2-3 serrations near the root), and super sharp! The others were found in gravel beds around a fallen tree.
  24. NSR Unknown 7-19-2020

    Hi Everyone, As I am going through my bat with poison ivy I am taking the time to go through some findings. I have to pieces I have no idea about. Both found NSR. Any help is appreciated.
  25. Hey Everyone, Has anyone found a Eutrephoceras dekayi from NSR? If so, was it only 2mm or smaller in size? I really want one but man my eyes will have a hard time finding it. Planko
