  1. Snake or Turtle head?

    I can't figure out. how to use your site! I have a fossilized head that I think is snake or turtle. It measures ap. 1 1/2" long, 1" wide & 1/2" high. If you or anyone could help me figure out what it is, I would really appreciate it. I got the head about 1995 at an auction In Southern California. Thank you.
  2. Everything was pretty well picked over in my regular spots so I took a thirteen mile eleven hour hike with a friend at the North Sulphur River Texas. Here's my finds. The mosaaur tooth, fish fin with verts, fish occipital condyle and the big Tylosaur vert made my day. The water moccasins were mating and did not appreciate us walking by. They both took the time to open their mouths and warn us to get away.
  3. Found in North Alabama - not sure what it is

    I was out yard saleing and cam across an eccentric fellow who had this on one of his tables. n opinionIt looked pretty cool so I bought it. I asked for an opinion from a friend and he thinks it is a whale vertebrae . I have absolutely no idea what do you guys think? Thanks in advance for the opinions
  4. The legs show that snakes retained legs for 70 million years. More importantly, these fossils help explain the extreme flexibility of snake skulls. https://m.phys.org/news/2019-11-fossils-snakes-lost-legs.html
  5. Looks reptilian to me

    1.5” X 1.0” tapers to blunt point. Structures up close with microscope are fantastic. the fractals And repetition scream complex multi cell but I have been duped many times by rock before. I don’t see how this couldn’t be flesh fossilized but hey. Found in southern Indiana, but in commercial river rock.
  6. possible snake fossil?

    Just joined today so first time posting! *I can already tell this is going to be my new favorite site! I originally found this fossil when I was about 11 years old. It was found on a rock cliff in the middle of Lake Eufaula in Eastern Oklahoma. I begged my uncle to take me to the rock cliffs projecting from the center of the lake so I could throw rocks in the water. I remember the cliff being very tall and all a light grey color. the rocks flaked apart really easy so I was having a hay day chipping off big flecks and tossing them down to the water below. to my surprise I flaked off this piece and decided it was too cool to toss in the water. I tried to follow the shape both directions but my uncle got impatient so I didn't get to find the head or tail. I rediscovered this piece at my Dads house in the attic about 8 years ago . I had forgotten about it so it was like discovering it all over again. I am 35 now and am truly amazed I still have it considering all of the moves I have been through. My wife and I are finding ourselves with more time to go on adventures so we are thinking about getting into hunting. thought if I could get some inside into what exactly I found may help reignite my passion for exploring the unknown.(unknown to me anyway) Thanks in advance for your time.

  7. Possible Snake Head

    Hello, Found this possible snake head on a beach North of St Augustine. Looking for information. Thank You. Regards, Chris
  8. Skull, Teeth, Jawbone, etc.

    Hello everyone and thanks in advance for any help or ideas. Earlier this summer my friend moved to South Dakota and purchased a home. A few days ago he was cleaning out a shed on the property and found a cardboard box filled with the fossils seen below. It is unknown if the prior owner had found these on the property or if they had been purchased elsewhere. So unfortunately he has no idea where or when these were originally found. Neither of us have much experience in this but obviously fossils such as these catch your attention! If anyone wants or needs additional pictures let me know and I will see if he can send more. I have included mostly pictures of the skull and teeth as I figured they would likely be most helpful for identification. It is assumed all these pieces belong together but it is possible it is just a random collection. The pictures in order are: skull facing front, skull bottom, skull side (close up), three different angles of the jaw/teeth, and then one pic of all the pieces together with a ruler to get a ballpark idea of sizing. Hope you guys enjoy the pics and hopefully someone out there has some guesses. Thanks!
  9. Help Needing Fossil ID

    Part of a big collection .. can someone help me ID this .. I have three? I have no idea ..
  10. I took my 7 year old grandson and my stepdaughters boyfriend on their first fossil hunting trip yesterday. We had a blast and some cool finds. The Xipahctinus pectoral fin and other nice fin piece were my finds of the day. My stepdaughters boyfriend found a really nice shark tooth and a mosasaur vert. My grandson picked up every rock known to man and chased frogs most of the day. Lol

  12. Fossil ID

    Found this 20 years ago. have packed it around always wonder what it is ..found 20 miles due West of Ellensburg Wa ..I see the head of something looking from left to right . opposite in picture .the head is almost the size of the rock .the white mass is center of it's mouth and eye is located just above that ..there appears to be scales of some kind on the back of it and a patch of green on the bottom. It is all coiled up hope the pictures I have are good enough to ID it ...it is roughly the size of a good potatoe ..
  13. I decided on a whim to go fossil hunting yesterday. I took off on the 2 hr drive to get to my favorite area the North Sulphur River Texas. I jumped off in three creeks to see footprints everywhere. I decided to go try a creek I spotted a few years ago but never tried. It paid off. I found my first NSR echinoid after 4yrs of heavy hunting. Echinoids are quite rare at NSR. I also found a really cool Pachydiscus ammonite with an Inoceramid on it. I think I"ll try that creek again in the future.
  14. Fun day on the North Sulphur River Texas. We saw some cool wildlife. Here's my finds. A nice mix of pleisosaur, mosasaur, enchodus, shark, turtle, horse, coprolite and artifacts.
  15. Snake Vertebra?

    Hey everyone, I'd like to know what you think about this vertebra I found on the peace river last February. I know people find snake verts once in a while on the river and was wondering if this specimen had any traits that would determine its identity whether it be more general or specific. I know that not everyone knows the size reference when using American currency, the vert is 1.5 cm from the top of the process to the bottom and about .8 cm long at its longest point.

  22. Hollow Reptile Egg Fossil

    Hey guys! I'm curious about this egg fossil I've got here – it's been preserved with its hollow shell intact and sort of crystalized. I know there are loads of these eggs out there, but I've never seen one like this before so I'm wondering how unusual it really is. The other egg seems to be solid when held under a bright light. Here's what I know about it: – Ophidienovum sp – From a snake, I think – Tertiary/Miocene – From Mainz, Germany – Eggs are 2cm long Would love to hear your input!
  23. Found in Georgia

    My family and I headed out to shark tooth beach on jekyll island tonight and I found this. I have no idea what it is but I feel like it's staring at me... or is a nose... or something. Anyway my 5 year old won't stop asking about it and I can't find anything like it online. Any help would be greatly appreciated. It's about the size of a quarter. Thank you!
