  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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
  7. Jaw Piece Identification

    Hello all. Going through my pickings from a couple weeks ago. Might be tough but wondering if anyone knows what species this might of come from. Roughly 1.5 in by 2 inch.
  8. Neithia Texana or ???

    Hi everyone. Decided to hunt somewhere other than NSR this time. Not a bad 2 hours. Man that Texas sun is crazy right now. Any-who, 6 ammonites , several clams, a few oysters and the below. Is it a Neithia Texana, Pectan or ?? Beat up a bit but I am happy with it.
  9. Good evening everyone, I recently did some fossil hunting in the Green Mill Run river in Greenville, NC. The water was pretty low - ankle/shin deep most of the time. I'm pretty new to fossil identification so figured you guys could help me out. Location: Green Mill Run, NC Date: July 2020 Excavation process: Shovel to river bed The first looks like a jaw with teeth indentations. It's about 1.9" (50mm) with brownish coloration. Additional photos below.
  10. Plesiosaurus Vert...Maybe

    Hi All. I found this recently at NSR. I do believe it is a Plesiosaurus vertebrae. Looking around to make sure before I label and I have confused myself. Looked at too many websites. So, is it a Plesiosaurus Vert? Thanks in advance for your help?

  19. Gastropod / Unknown Bone

    Below is gastropod and was wondering a couple of things. Found NSR up from the Ladonia Park. What species to label it. Second though is it is heavy for its size. I know weight doesn't matter a lot but it is unusual. It is a different matrix from the normal NSR black or red gastropod steinkerns normally found there. Ok, the really unusual part it smells like metal. Like when you hold coins in your hand and they have the metallic smell. This has that smell and your hand smells just like it after holding. Maybe thinking to much into this but just is different. Bone fragment same location. Might be to worn to label.
  20. Help please with identification

    Live in London and found this in the Thames recently. I'm guessing it's a humerus of some kind of animal but I can't fit it against pictures I can find on the Internet. Any ideas. Also no idea how old it is.

  23. Fossil in Alps riverbed

    hi everyone, I found this fossil embedded on honeydew sized rock on a riverbed the the western alpine region of Austria, (Hinterhornbach). I am sorry for not having included a ruler as i was on a hike and did not want to take the rather large stone away from the area at the moment. I am curious to know if this is in fact a fossil of some sort, as I am by no means an expert when it comes to fossils. At the imprints widest point i would say is 10cm. The detailed texture which is printed resembles leather or elephant skin, as there are small wrinkles that run across the shape while the complete shape looks like that of a giant clam.Please let me know if you have more questions of if I left out some info! I am completely new to this forum, here with an abundance of curiosity. Thanks! *edit: it helps to look at the photo upsidedown, sorry for the orientation, I took the image with my phone and have limited equipment while staying in a remote location!
  24. Florida - Two Unidentified Teeth

    Hi everyone, These were found in a river in Central Florida. I wagered an alligator tooth on the first one, but ultimately I'm not sure. As for the second, I have no idea at all. Kindly let me know if more angles are needed, and I appreciate the help. Front Side Front Back Side Top
