  1. Any idea about this one? - Norfolk, UK

    I wondered if anyone might be able to help with this oddity. It's about 4-5 cm long, and was found on the beach at Wells-Next-the-Sea in North Norfolk, UK. Exciting dinosaur brain? Mundane piece of flint? Put me out of my misery, please!
  2. Fish????

    Hey gang. I've got a little rock that I purchased several years ago as part of an "unknown" lot. Can anyone tell me what they think it is?
  3. I picked up a nice chunk of conglomerate that had an obvious fossil tooth embedded in it, but became interested in what small micro fossils might be in it. I experimented with a small piece of fossil bearing rock and found that the acid destroyed the fossils amost as much as the rock, so as a result I turned to just doing surface scans. I eventually decided to remove one surface micro fossil that seemed to be pretty much on the surface of the conglomerate. The results were satsifactory, but I don't know what the micro fossil is. It is roughly one mm in diameter and maybe half a mm thick. It is small enough that it stretched my limits and the limits of my imaging system. I think it could be a fish tooth or scale, but have no idea. It definitely has some form and detail to it. I don't think it is just a broken piece. The first two photos show the item still attached to the conglomerate. One photo shows a bit of conglomerate still attached to one side. For size, the one line you see is .5 mm in thickness. I consider it a success simply because I was able to extricate one small fossil from conglomerate and get some photos. If it is actually something identifiable, I'd be doubly happy. Thanks to all.
  4. Unidentified Possibly Cochliodus

    From the album Chondrichthians

  5. Fossils ID requested in New Braunfels

    Fossil was found back yard. Approximately 3 miles from the Guadalupe river. The top of the skull, teeth, and what I believe to be part of the spinal column is rock. The rest of the fossil is encased in lime stone. Which I have slowly been scrapping away. Any information regard this fossils would be greatly appreciated.
  6. Location Missouri Found in limestone that was blasted out by construction workers The area is Pennsylvanian on the geological map I have also found prehistoric fish teeth in the area along with Brachiopods, Crinoids, and horn corals.
  7. Need help identifying a small fossil

    Hello everyone! This is a small fossil I found months ago in the Beaumaris Formation, Victoria, Australia. I've looked through the Fossils of Beaumaris PDF but cannot find anything similar. The measurements are as follows: - 2.5 cm L - 2.4 cm W - 1.2 cm D I have attached some images below which will hopefully be of help!

  17. Bone Identification Request

    With a bone I found yesterday, upon cutting it open, I saw what appears to have been a tube going through it that had been permineralized like the rest. Was this originally some sort of blood vessel that went down the length of the bone or could it be something else? Thanks! Note: Dino-bone such as this specimen is found in numerous locations in the immediate area of the Four-Corners states of the U.S. I live in that immediate area and I am able to easily travel to Arizona, New Mexico, Utah, or Colorado and back home in a single day on my expeditions. Some areas such as on an Indian Reservation or B.L.M. land prohibits taking such specimens without a permit, while in other areas the taking of such specimens is allowed. If anyone comes to this part of the U.S. to find such a specimen, please be careful to avoid collecting such in an illegal or prohibited manner. Thank you.
  18. Darn it, @Shellseeker, you got me started on these whale teeth! I'm starting to feel a little like Jonah -- swallowed in the mystery of these long-gone beasts. Anyway, I've found another recovery from the Peace River that doesn't seem to fit a common model. It's a small tooth with an inflated root. It doesn't seem inflated the way a river dolphin (e.g. Goniodelphis) is inflated and laterally compressed. I thought for a brief moment that this tooth might be a cheek tooth to go with the odd tooth with the off-center crown -- which I had concluded to be an apical tooth from a river dolphin. One or the other guess must be wrong. Anyone here have an idea about the ID of this tooth?
  19. Crabs - Worth prepping?

    While I was on the crab topic I also found three nodules that I popped but didn't want to take the chance prepping due to their size. Are these small crabs worth prepping in the condition they are in?
  20. Dinosaur bone from Texas

    Hi all! This is my first time posting, so please forgive me if these photos aren’t ideal. I purchased this fossil and was told that it’s a dinosaur bone that was found in Texas. I wish I had more specific information to go on, but I’m hoping someone could help me learn a bit more about what I have here. Thanks!
