  1. Fossil Horse Tooth?

    This is the first larger mammal tooth I came across while fossil hunting for megalodon teeth in South Carolina. Tooth was found in a stream in the general area between Charleston and Summerville along with some Meg teeth. What do you suppose this came from? Camel, horse, giant ground sloth?
  2. Vertebra Bone

    We were in Milsap, Texas floating the Brazos river (off of Hwy 20 and 281) My husband thought he stepped on a large rock, but it was this! I can't figure out what it comes from. I looked at most livestock vertebrae and it didn't seem to match up. Very curious what we found! Please help! :-)
  3. Hi all! I managed to go on 3 large fossil hunting trips this weekend and pulled in easily the BIGGEST haul so far with the most variety as well! The first two pictures were from Mimico creek and the rest were a mix of Humber river and a separate section of Mimico creek. I managed to pull in my second trilobite from the area so that was very exciting! Also pulled a bunch of stuff that I was not able to identify: /\ This was the haul from last Friday night /\ This is the trilobite I found!!! Very excited to have a second one - its been a while since the last one I found /\ This was the full haul for the weekend trip at Mimico and Humber /\ Some Orthoconic Nautiloids as usual. Although it seems that this isn't just the same species I usually find as some of the patterns were much smoother than what I usually find A couple decent looking Crinoid stalks /\ /\ Lots of different shells this time, with a nice range of lined shells as well as 'mussel' looking shells (don't know the scientific names for these ones yet - sorry :/) /\ A close-up of the real nicely defined deathbed of TONS of shells! Unfortunately the hammer I used for cracking bounced off this rock and mashed my thumb in so that wasn't very fun. But its healing up nicely so I'd say it was worth it haha /\ Variety different sizes of coral (if you guys could help me identify which type that would be sweet!) /\ These were the weird ones. I'm not even sure if these are even fossils but I figured I might as well take em just in case - better safe than sorry!! (I am posting these two in identification later!) I was very proud of this haul! Lots of diversity compared to the usual hunt which is nice because I'm kind of getting a little tired of the mountains of Nautiloids we have piling up in the collection Let me know what you guys think of these ones!!! -Em
  4. My apologies for posting so many topics without really contributing to other users threads. Im just excited that I found a message board where I can share these finds with people who can appreciate them Here is my very meager collection of fossils from Glen Rose Texas at the Paluxy river. The first time I went I was amazed at how many invertebrate specimens could be found so simply on the ground. The region is late Cretaceous Eagle Ford group. I have yet to identify them all but will edit the topic later once I read through a few other members posts and discover what these may be based on similar fossils.
  5. Fossil?

    My daughter is currently interested in fossils after finding the small collection I put together as a child. Whenever we get for a walk by our local river I end up with as many of these as she can make me carry. Are they actually fossils, and if so, what are they? Thanks in advance
  6. Horse tooth??

    Hello, This tooth must be horse, right? It's just smaller than most and I'm just not used to seeing the pattern on the occlusal surface so simple. Made me think maybe it could be something else (or maybe a different kind of horse). Any thoughts? Thank you
  7. Shell fossil close to Austin

    Howdy everyone! First time poster, long time lurker and I finally decided to start sharing some of my finds with you guys and hopefully gain a little more knowledge in this little hobby of mine. I found this while hiking a river close to McKinney Falls and Austin. Fossil was found laying directly in the water, close to shore and slightly obscured by mud. I tried to take some clear pictures and would like to know if anyone can help in identifying it. Thanks you guys!
  8. Is this a dinosaur bone?

    I found this black bone in the St. Croix River just south (downstream) of Interstate Park in Taylor's Falls, Minnesota. It was underwater half buried on a sandbar. It may have been washed loose from nearby cliffs by strong rains a couple days before. It is about six inches long and an inch in diameter.
  9. Identifying lined protrusions fossil

    Hello! (Sorry in advanced for posting so much in the last few days, just discovered this community and I have so many unidentified fossils accumulated over the years!) We found some rocks on the side of a river in Toronto with weird looking protrusions and I honestly don't even know where to start with these ones, take a look: Thanks in advanced for your time (and paleontology skill)! -Em
  10. My findings of another visit to Ladonia Fossil Park.
  11. Any ideas what this is ?

    I found this one in the same location of a few other confirmed fossils, is it just a rock or should I investigate this further?
  12. Fossil or no fossil

    Hi everyone! Mega mega newbie here and I’m not even sure if I got my hand on real fossils or not. So would appreciate any information and suggestions, thankyou
  13. Fossil ID Mammoth Molar Fragment

    I found and odd rock that from what I see online seems similar to a mammoth Molar perhaps. Or maybe I just want it to be lol. Either way would appreciate any help identifying it or just telling me I found a rock.
  14. Partial mammoth tooth and megalodon from this weekend's diving. These are my favorite pieces from a few dozen pulled up. In the last few months I've started my blackwater diving career and jumped in rivers from FL up to SC! It's been a fun ride to see what is hidden beneath the black waters of the southeast!
  15. Myrtle Beach

    Hi all. Anyone know of or heard about any inland sites to search in the Grand Strand area of SC coast. I know of good sites farther south in Charleston and Summerville and such. Trying to figure out if there are any places to dig and sift right near Myrtle Beach. In looking at a map it seems like there should be some Pleistocene era fossils around but with my limited knowledge I’m not sure where or how deep a layer might be. The Little River is near by but not sure if it’s a candidate. Trying to find somewhere to search besides just the beach. Thanks for any thoughts or ideas.
  16. River Fossil ID

    Hey guys, new member here. So around eight to nine years ago, I was walking the sand bars of the Mississippi River alongside Randolph Co., Illinois and I happened to find this fossil bone. I was wondering if we could figure out what it belonged to and how old it is. I think it’s a piece of rib? Thanks guys.
  17. What fossil is this?

    I found this while fishing on the beach if a cove in Massachusetts. It was below a huge rock cliff. Other fossils have been found in the same cove. I don't know what kind of rock the cliff is but this was certainly way different.
  18. Please help identity

    Could someone please help me figure out what this is. I found it by the River in Libby Montana a couple years ago. Just curious what I have, please and thank you.
  19. I was recently collecting down on the south fork of the nemaha river, looking through the glacial till gravel, and discovered this very well preserved jawbone. I am unsure of its age or species. Any information would be great to have. I can post other angles of it if needed
  20. Mammoth tooth?

    This was found in Florida. Unspecified location. It was pretty small but I wanted to know if it was a mammoth juvenile or not. I actually own a mammoth tooth and it looks very similar but it's so small I wasn't sure. Possibly one of those pygmy elephant things. If anyone knows PLEASE tell me
  21. Any idea what these are?

    Any idea what these are? Thanks
  22. Any idea what this is?

    I assume this is a sea lily, but I may be wrong.
  23. I think this may be a mastodon fossil, but I have no real idea. I found it on a beach on north island, Kankakee River, Wilmington Illinois.
  24. Iowa mammal bone ID help

    Hi everyone, I found what I think are a lumbar vertebra and an astragalus bone. I'm not sure how old they are, but they both seem pretty weathered and possibly mineralized. Both appear to be from bovids(?). These were found on a river sandbar around Ames, IA after recent spring flooding. Does anyone know how to distinguish bison from cattle bones? The vertebra is 35 cm wide, 10 cm long, and 8 cm tall. The astragalus is 7.4 cm long, 5.5 cm wide, and 4 cm deep.
  25. River mud find

    I am a new person and not a paleontoligist. While swimming in the Rock River Moline Illinois 52 years ago I found this bone deeply buried in the mud. There was much more to the find than what I could bring up, but this piece could be lifted free by unburying it with my feet. It was in 3-4 feet of water. it is 12 inches long and weighs 1.8 pounds. I would appreciate any input someone has time to offer please! All these years, I still have the bone and I do not know what it is. I have other photos but this site will not let me upload them. Thank You
