  1. Possible Bone Found

    Hey there, This is my first post so please excuse any newbie blunders. I found this bone or other long thing lying on the beach at Tankerton, Kent, UK part of the London Clay formation this week, 14th July 2020. The London Clay formation is said to be early/lower eocene. To me, a layman to palaeontology and Osteology, it seems like a leg bone, perhaps tibia because of it triangular shape at one end?!?! I was told by a young gentleman on the beach that Mammouth have been found there as well in the past. That is about as far as my knowledge goes. I appreciate any help I can get. Thanks
  2. Am I correct in thinking...

    Would I be correct in assuming both of these are sea sponge??
  3. I've always been fascinated by the Cretaceous sea and its myriad of terrifying carnivores, many that would've made Jaws look meek. After watching BBC's Sea Monsters, I made it my goal to compile a box of sea monster fossils. I started this journey 10 years ago, and finally completed the box recently. Allow me to present my Predators of the Cretaceous Sea collection, and take you on a journey to the most dangerous sea of all times. The box measures 20.25 inches long. Inside are 24 unique predator fossils. I will introduce them from left to right, top to bottom: Rhombodus binkhorsti Age: 70.6 - 66 mya | late Cretaceous Formation: Severn Formation Locality: Bowie, Maryland, USA Size: 1 meters Diet: Molluscs and crustaceans art by Nobu Tamura --------------- Polyptychodon interruptus Age: 105.3 - 94.3 mya | Cretaceous Formation: Stoilensky Quarry stratigraphic unit Locality: Stary-Oskol, Belgorod Oblast, Russia Size: Maybe 7 meters (This is a tooth taxon so size is not confirmed) Diet: Anything it could catch Note: If you consider Polytychodon a nomen dubium, then this is a Pliosauridae indet. art by Mark Witton ----------------- Prognathodon giganteus Age: 70.6 - 66 mya | late Cretaceous Formation: Ouled Abdoun Basin Locality: Khouribga Phosphate Deposits, Morocco Size: 10-14 meters Diet: Everything art by SYSTEM(ZBrushCentral) --------------- Coloborhynchinae indet. Age: 99.7 - 94.3 mya | late Cretaceous Formation: Kem Kem Beds Locality: Southeast Morocco Size: 7 meters (high estimate) Diet: Fish and cephalopods

  5. Two Coral ID request

    Good morning. I have two unidentified fossil corals requiring an ID. Does anyone know what type of coral these are. I believe it was another yard sale purchase from many years ago.
  6. Pseudozygopleura species?

    Good evening folks. I have an item from the back of my "unidentified" drawer that I originally thought was a Pseudozygopleura species. I am having doubts because of the "twist" of the shell going 180 degrees in the opposite direction. Any help is appreciated.
  7. hi everyone this is matthew again today in the creek 2 sets of different kinds of brachiopod fossils here are 2 photos
  8. Fossil Shell?

    I live in Flower Mound, Texas, Denton County. I find many fossilized shells in the ground as I garden and stuff. The other day, this one popped up and looked different enough that I am curious if it is a shell or something else. The one surface is much smoother than I see with the other "clam" shell fossils I find. The sides also appear to be thinner than usual. Thanks for any help.
  9. Fossil Worm Burrows???

    Good morning folks. I just came across these "worm burrows" in one of my unidentified drawers. Can anyone provide more information that will help me in my researching effort. I purchased these at an estate sale about 15 years ago. Sorry, that's all I have. There are four different items with the largest measuring about 5cm.
  10. Whose tooth (2)?

    A flea market buy, and thus no idea about provenance I'm afraid. I understand that ID under these circumstances is very difficult, but would it possible to provide at least a generic indication? Judging from the matrix it comes from a marine animal for sure, but it doesn't look like a shark tooth to me.
  11. Found in a wash in Southern Arizona

  12. Does anyone know what this creature is or is it a plant? It has stumped me for quite some time. Background - It's an old acquisition from Thornton Quarry in Thornton, Illinois. Silurian period. It measures approximately 5" x 3.5".
  13. turtles

    what have i found?
  14. Is this fossil coral or modern coral?

    I found this marine rock next to railroad tracks with other marine rocks for railroad erosion control. It looks like coral, but not sure modern or cretaceous? I looked around, but can't seems to match up with any of the existing corals in the ocean.
  15. Mediterranean bone

    Hello! Today during a bath I found this bone: it was in the sea water near Gela, a city in the southern coast of Sicily. Near the place where I found it there are some little rivers, so, maybe it was a land animal’s bone. Can you help me with the identification? (Sorry for my English)
  16. Mystery fossil discs

    Hello again. I have several of these strange fossil discs. I cannot find tags for them in the boxes of minerals and fossils recently acquired. Possibly some sort of jellyfish? sea sponge? Any help with ID is of course always appreciated!
  17. Need help with identification

    Hi to everyone. My grandmother gave me these two, one fossil that she found at the sea here in Greece, and this mineral that she doesn't remember where she found. Can anybody please help me identify them, I am not too sure if the mineral is appropriate for this forum as it is not a fossil. Any help is appreciated.
  18. ID 3 species in a Permian themed exhibit

    I just went to this traveling exhibit in a museum in a city where my brother lives that it is about the animals and life in the Permian period and I got pictures of 3 fossils, an ammonite, a trilobite and a crinoid but I don’t know what species and genus they are?
  19. Hi, All. The photos below of the group shot, followed by some individual shots, are of my most recent acquisitions. Like many of the fossils I've acquired here in Niger, I don't have much of a clue what I'm looking at! As indicated in the title, these all came from the Agadez area of Niger - a current hotspot of dino discoveries. Unfortunately, it's also "hot" when it comes to danger from terrorism, so the supply of things coming out of the sand there has greatly decreased. Anyway, I don't want to flood the site with photos of all the things I don't have a clue about, but I thought I'd start with these. Thanks so much for your wisdom! Rob
  20. Sea urchin Holectypus?

    This was also found near Herznach in Switzerland and according to my lexicon, it could be a Jurassic Holectypus, am I correct? Greetings!
  21. Possible bird skull?

    Hello everyone, this is my first thread on this forum. I found this community while doing some research about a possible bird skull fossil. The piece was found by me in the Sea of Lima, Peru, in the 2018 summer. I can take more pictures if needed. I see myself a peack and some eyes sockets ..
  22. Ocean Floor Fossil

    I found a fossil amongst a ton of ocean fossils, mostly crinoids but amongst other things. It is a bunch of dots on a rock .Any ideas at to what it is, maybe scales? Nearly all the rocks are fossils.
  23. Worm like fossils, crinoids?

    I found what look like worm fossils among a bunch of crinoid fossils and a few shells. Could you explain what these are? They seem much larger than the crinoid fossils. Seems like one end of the worm and the other end. I found smaller ones of one end, like knob ends.
  24. Shell

    I found a shell that is all grey rock. I would like to know what animal it is. I found it with a bunch of crinoid fossils. I think it's a shell.
