  1. Greetings everyone! I'm hoping someone might be able to help ID something that is not in the best of condition/shape. It's quite unusual from what I typically see/find here in Eastern NC - at first I was thinking the root of a whale tooth but it's not like any I've seen/found myself before. So, I'm hoping someone might be able to give direction if this is a tooth root or maybe even a small tusk root, possibly? There is only a tiny bit of enamel present on the tip where the tooth would be and the texture on the "inside" is somewhat similar looking to what I'd see in whale or maybe even a sliver of mastadon tooth but not quite - I tried to get as clear of images as I could but if different angles are needed, just let me know! Any help is greatly apprecaited! Found: Eastern NC - outside of Greenville - in a River- items commonly found in this same area (within the gravel deposit)/around it are large chunks of whale bone (Ear bone, rib, skull and verts), Great White, Giant White and meg shark teeth, and some shell concretions. I've found nothing indicating there is cretaceous within this small area to date and cannot recall finding any other mammal material within this location, either.
  2. Root system or conglomerate?

    Here's one of my "works". Again, found this when I was about 12 yrs old and painstakingly picked it clean with dental tools and thought it might be some sort of root system. Now, I wonder if its just a conglomerate? Thoughts on this as well appreciated! Though it looks like the "grey" roots are depressions, they are rounded, raised areas. I'll try taking some more outside. Maybe not even a fossil? Stay healthy! thanks! Bone
  3. Crinoid holdfast 3D

    Have you ever wondered what the holdfast root system looked like? I did. So I prepped one of my least costly duplicates to see the whole picture. Here are the before photos.
  4. @caldigger post on finding two pieces of the same tooth reminded me of the tooth I found in New Zealand many years ago. The site is closed now, so I don’t think there is a chance of finding the root. But is there anyone on here that could accept this challenge? I’ll pay of course! Tooth overlying picture of complete tooth of same size and position showing the missing root. The slightly trickier bit is on the back where the root/enamel transition is partially missing. Scale bar = 2 inches total. A few more images of the tooth;

  6. Tyrannosaur roots

    Hi I'm just wondering in some cases can the root of a tyrannosaur tooth stick out causing the tyrannosaur tooth to be bigger and if so will the tooth be fine and still be able to be used by the tyrannosaur @Troodon THANKS!!
  7. Mosasaur bone clump

    From the album Marine reptiles and mammals

    A cool Moroccan mosasaur bone pile I acquired, sadly the matrix is so soft the piece broke in transit, but thankfully the splits missed all but 1 smaller bone. I'm considering just removing them from the matrix, and maybe mounting them in the same positions again, but I haven't decided yet. *more info to follow
  8. Hi everyone, Today I was in Weymouth (south of England) when I stumbled upon a popular fossil shop. The shop specializes in selling a variety of both fossil replicas and 'fossils'. While I was there I stumbled across a selection of Mosasaur teeth with the root kept inside a locked cabinet. I decided to purchase one of them for £10. So what I was wondering is if the tooth and root are real or not as I am still sceptical. Can anyone give any insight?
  9. Possible root fossil?

    Hello guys, I would like to ask you about one fossil that I found the last summer in Huelva (Spain), lower pliocene. In the area, I found bivalves, thalassinoides, gyrolithes and some crab rest. But the thing that most impressed me was the next. I asked in a Spain forum and someone told me that could be a root, but I can not find information about it on the Internet. The dark brown part is very sensitive to touch, melts to the touch. Thanks you, Daniel. Video:
  10. Hi all, This is an unusual looking find. Measures about 1 3/4 x 1 1/2 x 1 inch and found on the beach in Tampa Bay, Florida. It is hard as rock or shell, has striations running down and a twig sticking out of the middle. The bottom has tube worms, shell material and a barnacle. My educated guess is a fossilized plant root, like a mangrove (pneumatophores). Or a twig through a seashell like how the native Indians made tools that way by putting a hole in the shell and putting it through a branch and letting it grow in it tight. I have photographed several angles. What do you think it is?
  11. Found Middle TN Root fossil?

    Found this interesting piece digging near Natches Trace TN. Is this a root fossil?
  12. I found this in a creek bed near Patagonia, AZ. It has the long cylindrical hole, and also has a leaf imprint on the other side. There may be more in there, not sure. But I'm wondering especially about the cylinder. Is it something like a root? Or a clam burrow? Or something else? Thanks!
  13. Mosasaur tooth with replacement tooth

    From the album Marine reptiles and mammals

    Mosasaur tooth with the replacement tooth still in place. I always wondered what the weird round/oval holes were on the side of mosasaur roots. Finally it all falls into place!
  14. Purchased this one from an auction site for fairly cheap. I'm sure actual tooth is real but is the root matrix real as well especially if coming from Morocco? Thanks!
  15. New to buying fossils and need some help. My friends birthday is coming up and her favorite dinosaur is a spinosaurus so I bought her two teeth on ebay. The listing says they are authentic "rooted" spinosaurus teeth with no "restore". I have read online that sometimes people will attach cement to the bottom of the teeth and I'm wondering if that's what they did here. I have two weeks to return them so any help would be appreciated. Thanks for the support!
  16. Hi guys, What is your opinion about this tooth? I think it is a real one, no fractures and no covering matrix. But maybe the experts see some red flags.
  17. Stigmaria Root

    I am preparing to sell a large specimen of Stigmaria, but am not sure of the price range. The specimen was collected from the Penn of eastern Kentucky, and measures a continuous 7'2" or so. The portion recovered above the shale bed is quite detailed and black in color, while the portion recovered within the shale will require some prep. In the photo, the item is the longer bottom specimen. Might someone provide me with a ballpark valuation of this item? STIGMARIA ROOT.pdf
  18. So a seller was offering me these teeth, the biggest is about 13,5cm long. I am interested in the long one wich looks like it is fully rooted. But the question is is it a composit?
  19. Is the white part down there peeled of enamel or the root. It also looks like a port of the tooth was cut or worn down.
  20. Isurus

    From the album Mitchu Fossils

    Found a bunch of teeth from this site but this is the only one that had most of the root intact
  21. 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!
  22. Flora Hash Plate

    From the album Carbondale, PA

    Finely parallel-veined leaves of a Cordaites plant alongside the branch or root of a giant Lycopod (aka scale tree or club moss). The latter could grow up to 50 m high! found in Carbondale, PA Lewellyn Formation Pennsylvanian (Upper Carboniferous) period 299-323 myo
  23. It has obviously been repaired, but the tooth fragment below is intriguing- do you think this is a genuine, or is it fake or composite?
  24. Mosasaur tooth

    A rooted tooth of a mosasaur.
  25. Stigmaria Ficoides

    Would anyone have any sort of idea of how much this Stigmaria fossil might be worth? It is approximately 12 in. x 6 in., I do not know where it originally is from. It was found within the landscape rocks of my sisters house, which is in southwest Ohio. From what I know of these, they are Carboniferous and not typically found around here, since most of the fossils found here (Cincinnati, OH) are usually Ordovician. I was thinking this stigmaria might have been transported with rocks from a quarry for landscaping purposes. The house is over 50 years old, so I have no way of knowing where the rocks came from. I was thinking of offering my brother in law something for this fossilized tree root (He does not collect fossils by the way.) What would this stigmaria be worth to someone who collects fossils like me? Thanks to anyone who replies, your opinions will be appreciated.
