  1. Help identify!

    Ive been trying to find where to post my pictures to have this fossil i found identified. Ive been searching for the fossil id section for 30 min. So im just going to try posting it here. Im sorry if that is wrong. 25 years ago a strange rock/ fossil was found on my parents property during some excavation. Not near any known river or water source. I rediscovered it today in a box in my attic because i'm moving. I cannot identify exactly what it is and i was hoping somebody could help tell me what it is. I have never shown it to anybody because i didn't think much of it. It was found in Fairfield county, Connecticut.
  2. XXL Trilobite

    I have been sitting on these two pieses for a bit and wondered if anyone out the could help identify it. It was found in Nevada. The longest section is about 5.5 inches long before it runs off the rock. My best messurement is 5 inches wide shell. From what I can tell it have a fairly thick shell from the pos/neg. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  3. Crazy Mystery Fossil

    A friend from California gave this to me many years ago (but I'm not 100% sure it's from California). Does anyone know what it is? IMG_3317.HEIC
  4. Need identified please

    Flipside of item
  5. Need identified please

    Found on Maryland eastern shore. Need help identifying please
  6. Okay so I found this specimen at the Taughannock Falls in Ithaca New York. I found it at the edge of the gorge which consists of Shale, composed of slit and clay that fell onto lime mud and hardened into rock. I've done some research and it appears to be a Brittle star trace fossil formed by their arm grazing the sand floor. Although, these Brittle Star fish traces are known as "Pteridichnites biseriatus" and they have only been discovered so far in upper Devonian shales out in western and eastern Virginia. I'm not an expert but to my knowledge the Ithaca geological formation is Devonian and was slowly covered by sand. Is it possible that the Brittle Star fish once roamed in the ancient sea now known as "Taughannock falls" today? Because a research team is trying to find this specimen and they are wondering if anyone has discovered it. Edit: Im referring to the dotted trackway. check this link out for more information. http://www.wvgs.wvnet.edu/www/news/Pteridichnites.htm
  7. Fossil bone

    Bought this fossil bone from an old man, not sure what it is, guesses?
  8. Found all three of these at different times in Kankakee River State Park in Illinois. In the river. Two of them were just laying out. I got the other one hammering rocks. The rock it was embedded in was kind of a medium sandstone. (EDIT - I'm just attaching two because of the MB limit. You can see one of them from two different angles, including the interesting stuff in the middle, and the other from a single angle. I can post more if needed). I'm fascinated by the three-dimensional quality of these. The one - you can see pretty well - even seems to have some internal structure visible, looks like a notochord, but who knows. Anyway, at first I thought that I had Tully Monsters, until I learned those are never found in this form or location. Then I thought maybe I had ammonites, but apparently those are very rare in the Midwest, so I'm not so sure. What do we think?
  9. What is this? Croc scute?

    Can anyone identify this for me? I would think it was a crocodile scute, except Ive never seen that shape before.
  10. Pyrites fossil

    Can anyone identify this? I found it a few years ago on either Lyme Regis or Charmouth Beach, England. I believe it is preserved in pyrite and it is very smooth and symmetrical. I've asked others before but as of yet no one has identified it? I wondered if it was something to do with an ammonite as I often find them preserved in pyrite...
  11. Edestus teeth

    From the album Sharks and fish

    The shark relative is genus of eugenodontia holocephalid from the Carboniferous-Pennsylvanian age Anna shale formation, Carbondale group, found in different Illinois coal mines. I dont know(yet)which mine these were found in. This unidentified species is of the "vorax-serratus- crenulatus-heinrichi" or "E. heinrichi group", with the teeth being more of a standard triangular shape, as opposed to being thinner and pointed at a forward angle as in the "E. minor" group http://www.thefossilforum.com/applications/core/interface/file/attachment.php?id=501751
  12. Mosasaur premaxillary bones

    From the album Marine reptiles and mammals

    2 unidentified mosasaur species' anterior end of premaxillary bones. One with teeth broken off just beyond the skull, and the other has 2 remaining teeth, with the rest broken off at the level of the skull. the larger fossil was found in the phosphate mines of Khouribga, Morocco. ive since lost the information for the smaller fossil, sadly.
  13. Raptor

    From the album Dinosaurs & flying reptiles

    Unidentified raptor fossil, likely clavicle, from kem kem, in Taouz, Morocco middle Cretaceous 100 mya
  14. Mini Mosasaur collection

    From the album Marine reptiles and mammals

    A little collection of assorted mosasaur fossils from 2 different places that I got when I first started collecting. 2 different types of vertebrae, one is mosasaur, and the other is a questionable claim of mosasaur, a corprolite that was claimed to be that of a mosasaur, a tooth, & 7 rib fragments. 2 ribs have predation marks, as well as the large vertebra. The large vert has a round tooth indent on the very center. The 2nd rib down has tooth scratches along the surfaces, & 3rd rib down has a round tooth indent in the center, which is probably what caused a strip across the middle to break off. There are 2 other tooth marks on that rib as well, forming a diagonal line from above left of the center indent, breaking off a piece along the top, to below right.
  15. Plesiosaur and pliosaur teeth

    From the album Marine reptiles and mammals

    Pliosaur teeth--liopleurodon ferox(?) & unidentified genera plesiosaur teeth--cryptoclidus sp & cryptoclidus sp (?) lower oxford clay callovian stage middle jurassic 160 mya peterborough, cambridge U.K. Hampton lakes & Bradley Fen.whittlesey
  16. I bought this in a market in Chiapas, Mexico. They told me that it was from San Juan Cancuc, Chiapas, Mexico and it was found underwater. I have no other info. I have noticed some line marks inside the tube.
  17. Unknown Kem Kem Beds, Teeth

    I have a few teeth here that i could you some help identifying! I'm thinking between a Crocodile or Raptor for the first tooth posted (includes photo of each side). The second photo contains multiple teeth that look to be from the same organism, however i have no clue as to what it could be. All of these teeth are from the Kem Kem Beds of Taouz, Morocco. The single (Crocodile/Raptor?) tooth is .53" (14 mm) long by .31" (8 mm) wide by .2" (5 mm) thick.
  18. I got this fossil as part of a collection I bought and so have no idea where it was found. I have attached pictures of both sides of it. It is roughly 6cm wide and has a depth of abouth 3cm. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  19. What fossil is this?

    I was looking at fossils for sale online when I saw this slate for sale. It's about 25 cm and I can't recognize what fossil this is. All I know is that it's from the Cretaceous in Latin America. Any ideas as to what it can be? Regards
  20. Unidentified Vertebra, Manatee?

    So, I bought this vertebra at a thrift store awhile back, the owner claimed it was found in one of many underwater dives where he would regularly receive fossils from. I'm not sure as to the exact location unfortunately or I would provide more info; with that being said, I don't expect a clear ID. It was definitely found in Florida the owner also said he thought it was a Manatee, but his memory was failing him as he also said which is why I've asked for an ID in the first place. Here are some photos I took, if some more are needed I will try to add more relatively soon. Thanks in advance!
  21. Unidentified bone

    From the album Holzmaden

    A 10 cm long unidentified bone from the lower Jurassic from Holzmaden. I think that its a part of a rib, but I am not sure.
  22. Found this in 2012 at a location in Santa Monica Mountains. Size is roughly an inch. No other fossils could be found there. First two pictures are after removing the covering sandstone. Third picture is before. Fourth is a closer shot of the road cut that I did in 2012. Thanks for any help! Os
