  1. shark jaw id

    Hi everyone this is my first post so I'm sorry if I'm doing this wrong. I need some help identifying this shark jaw. I bought it packaged at a gift shop a long time ago so I don't know where it comes from and I don't think it was from that area. The upper jaw has 20 teeth on each side and the lower has 18. The last 5 or 6 teeth on the bottom don't seem to have a point. The edges don't have serrations and I don't see any cusps. Thank you all for any help!
  2. Funky stone from Croatia

    Found this at seashore in Vir, Croatia (Northern Dalmatia), the stone is about 10cm on the longest side. Thought it'd be some fossils (because I got no clue about fossils) but now it looks more like a regular stone embedded with some softer pebbles that crumbled away with time (probably because of sea currents). Could anybody confirm that?
  3. Marine fossil ID

    Dug this small fossil out of a sandstone boulder that was littered with bivalves and gastropod. A lot of the fossils found in the sandstone date back to the Pliocene so I can only assume it is from that period also. Thanks
  4. So, yeah. It seems to just be a broken part of a bone
  5. Small unknown

    I recently purchased an unprepped Calymene breviceps trilobite from @holdinghistory from the Blue Springs quarry in Indiana & started trying my hand at prepping (by hand). I'm using dental picks, needles, pin vices, small nylon brushes & hydrogen peroxide (actually softens the top layers of the matrix a bit). Anyhoo, I saw something in the pics that got me curious & once I had worked the trilo for a bit, I decided to see if I could prep the whatever it was some & find out what it is. Included is one of the original pics from his post & a micro shot of the thing I'm asking about. It measures a whopping 11 mm in length. It isn't the cleanest, but it looks ok. It seems to have been hollow at one point, but I don't know. Any idea's? The red circled area is what I saw in the original pic. Oh yeah, there's a lot of pyrite running through the matrix. Nasty little veins of it.
  6. My 7 year old found this small shark tooth...

    My 7 yo found this tooth- I told him maybe a black-tip but I don't think he trusts my judgement... any ideas? Brent
  7. Where do I belong?

    Got this on a hunt today. Mid. Miocene, Round Mountain Silt Member, Temblor Formation. California. It is 5cm long, 3.5cm wide, 2cm thick. I am presuming whale, but don't really know. It seems strange to me in that the channels that would carry nerves or blood vessels are going perpendicular to the way it would set in the spinal column. One of the channel openings looks to be partially fused off which may have pinched nerves or blocked off blood supply. Any thoughts as to where on the critter it belonged and if indeed it is whale or not?
  8. Trilobite head, maybe more?

    I got a little curious with one of the pieces I won in the end of year auction. Got a bunch of nice stuff from @Pagurus & one was wrapped in foil (thought I got sent leftover turkey surprise or something). Nice sized chunk of rock from Deep Springs Road that had splits here & there. Anyhoo, back to the curious part. I tried (carefully) to split it along some of the areas & one small piece had what I originally thought at 1st glance was the impression of a gastropod until I looked again. Then I looked at the area it came off of & found the head (at least) of a small trilobite. I had to glue the right eye back on with a bit of rubber cement as I don't currently have any super glue. It literally fell off when I blew some dust off. I took a few pics, 2 of the impression & 3 more of the trilo-head, one showing the rock behind it more. Has some really nice definition on the eyes. 1st 2 pics are the impression. Can I get an I.D please?
  9. Hi all. Found this on Myrtle Beach. Never seen anything like it before. Any ideas? I'm including a photo of the top and bottom. Thank you! Paula
  10. Small Pinnules

    In a previous post i showed some finds from the British Coal Measures of Derbyshire , this is a small nodule from there it measures 21mm long x 12mm wide and the longest pinnule is just 4mm . I have tried to show it's size in these 4 pictures. and just so you don't get bored looking at the same fossil here is a.... Asterophyllites Equisetiformis Cheers John
  11. Fake Mosasaur Tooth?

    I was wondering if anyone could tell me if this is a real tooth. It looks almost too good to be true. Thanks for the help.
  12. something or nothing?

    stone 1.5 inches location: west of Houston in Brookshire from a gravel load from Brazos River. a small portion of the one end of stone is chipped off.
  13. shark teeth

    I think this is a shark due to the multiple rows of teeth but that's all I got they are really small maybe belong to a juvenile the fossil is about 1.5 inches
  14. Fossil ID Inquiry

    Hello. While vacationing along Lake Huron in Michigan, I found a rather impressive, and likely rare, fossil (see image). It is clearly a vertebrate with skull, spine, appendages, and pelvic region relatively intact and clearly visible. The specimen is approximately 2 inches by 2 inches in size. Any advice or direction, as to whom I should contact to identify/analyze my find would be most appreciated. Thank you very much for your time.
  15. Any ideas what this could be?

    I saw this little rock on walking home from work this morning & picked it up. Triangular in shape w/ rounded points. From point to base with all 3 points its 4 cm each and it has a hole partway through it. In that hole is what I'm curious about. I dont have expensive camera gear, just a Fuji Finepix S 4800, using Super Macro Mode. Camera in one hand & flashlight in the other. Hopefully someone will have some idea of what this might be. And all I can tell you about the location is literally that I'm in Central Washington State. I found it while walking alongside the train tracks.
  16. Fun day hunting

    Found a good amount this am. Nothing great but some pretty colors. Was able to manage some self-control and took a couple shots before I went in and ripped the teeth out and stuffed them in my pocket. Extremely hard not to just grab them up as fast as I can, lol. Last pick is days findings.
  17. Possible plant like fossil?

    I found this little rock among the river rock that's used as decoration at work. Just over 1.5" long by 1" tall & 3/8" at its thickest. The rocks are from a local quarry here in Central Washington State. It seems familiar, but I cant quite place it. The 3rd picture (bottom) show's it growing through the rock. Any idea's?
  18. Tooth

    This is a small, white circle I found. It is 4mm in diameter. From a creek in the Woodbine formation. It might be more recent. Possibly not even a fossil. Hopefully it is.
  19. Florissant something

    Always go through the chips left on the table. Any idea what I almost missed ?
  20. So i have this small vertebra, that may be too difficult to id, but thought it is worth posting in case another member has seen a similar vertebra from the Kem Kem. It is slightly over 4 cm in length. Anyone have an idea what it could be from? Thanks.
  21. Little brown bumps on rock

    What would these small bumps be on this rock? They are round and look like a lady bug sort of but not exactly, when I look at them under a magnifying glass. I think the stone it’s in is sandstone because it glitters in the sun.
  22. Hello, I in no way know a lot about fossils so I’m not sure if this is authentic or not. I purchased it from a local crystal shop. Super cheap and they had a lot of other Megalodon teeth to choose from. Anyway would appreciate some input. Thanks
  23. Cute Little Fishy

    I got this tiny fossil online for a very cheap price, under £5 and even included postage. It's been sat in the sellers dads Cupboard for over 20 years. Can anybody ID and tell me where it's from? Seller had no idea. Thank you!
  24. Dastilbe?

    Hey everyone, so I missed out on the little fishes that everyone helped ID for me not long ago (boo hoo!), but I came across these two little ones today and was wondering if they’re also dastilbe? The slab is listed at being 10x7 cm, with the larger fish being 5 cm and the smaller one 2 cm. I love the look of the smaller fish, could it possibly be a fry? Thanks in advance for the tremendous help I know I’ll receive from the wonderful people here!
  25. Bone fossil??

    Hello there! I no little information about fossils but I was really hoping someone could help me out with identifying this fossil? Frankly I’m not quite sure it is a fossil. I’m really curious though and I gladly thank anyone for their time. This small ‘bone’ was found on the shores of North Carolina. It’s a dark brownish color and feels lighter than it looks. (Almost like wood) Thank you guys!
