  1. Invertebrate ID help requested

    All, This is my first post, although I have been reading with interest for some time. As I approach retirement, I find myself returning to the hobbies of my youth, including fossil hunting. I found these fossils in a single rock in Northeastern Oklahoma (a few miles South of Tulsa). It came from demolished concrete structure, so I do not know where the rock originated. The rock is very hard and very fine grained. It reminds me of chert or a very hard limestone. The first photo shows one end of the rock, where the closeup photos were taken. The fossil in the upper left is about one inch (2.5 cm) in length and about one-half inch (1.3 cm) in height. The second photo shows a close-up of this fossil. I am nearing the file size limit, so I will attempt to reply to this topic with additional photos. I would be grateful if forum members can help me with identification. Best wishes.
  2. I’ve only a moth-eaten note in the bottom of this old matchbox which I presume once had the description of this fossil. I can’t tell you much more about it I’m afraid, just that it’s a fossil and would appear to be hollow and is quite light in weight. Sorry not much to go by, Any help would be much appreciated please.
  3. Unknown fossil

    Any input would be greatly appreciated , thank you.
  4. Crystalized fossil or a pipe dream?

    I have a rock feature that I am a bit doubtful, but hopeful about. I have a few "crystalized" fossils and have seen some very nice ones from near my hunting area also posted. This does mean that there are some out there. This little feature measures almost 11mm long and is 6mm wide. In hand, the left side really looks like a head segment of some sort with the line and what does look like two eye spots. The main area has what looks like segment end features going around the sides. The square crystal feature in the center is a totally new one for me. I have found literally hundreds, if not thousands of crystal specimens (mostly in the quartz family) and have never seen anything like this. This rock has several other fossil and fossil imprints in it. There are cephlapod fossils, rugose coral fossils, and other features that I am still researching. Researching and using the state geological map, it was found in a late ordovician period area. It was found outside of Willow Springs, Missouri, USA. My hopes are that it is a trilobite fossil of some sort or an isopod fossil. I am NOT getting my hopes up real high though.
  5. Fossilized reptile Egg?

    Hi, I grew up in Nebraska and somewhere or another I found this stone. We used to find lots of Mastodon Teeth, Camel teeth etc. in the Platte River Valley. And I know Nebraska was an ocean a long long time ago so occasionally we'd come across Megalodon teeth as well. I found this though. The backside is very smooth and round, it has what looks to be a well defined yolk like interior and what looks to my untrained eye to be a cross section of a small skull/cranium with beak like end. I would like to know if this is what I think it is.
  6. Unknown Fossil

    I found this fossil while at Myrtle Beach, SC last July 2019. Could someone help to identify? I am an just an amateur fossil hunter. Thank
  7. ID fossil

    Looks like fossil of a shelled creature but not sure
  8. Identify Please

    Any ideas? Found in SW Ohio. Thanks!
  9. Found this antiquing. Was only marked "petrified rock"..It is black & charcoal gray in color with a vertical ribbed texture and some rounded ends. Measures 6.5" tall x 5.5" x 4" and weighs 8lbs 1.1 oz. Is it petrified wood ? Petrified cactus? Or something else? It's only letting me upload 1 photo. Took pics with phone and guess their too big. Will try to post more.
  10. Any ideas

    Found in the Peace river today. At first I thought vert remnant, I think turtle. On each outer long side, there is a line in the middle that is very turtle like.
  11. Found a few fossils at the Guana South Beach in Ponte Vedra, need help identifying. The first one looks like a vertebra of some kind and the second looks like maybe a jaw bone with individual teeth holes. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
  12. Seeking possible fossil ID

    Looking for a possible Id of possible fossils on a rock as big as a man's fist. Found it on a solo hike through the desert in Namibia at Terrace bay.
  13. When I first set out to collect Dinosaur fossils, a fossil dealer with a long history in the industry and from whom I had purchased shark fossils from had this listed for sale. It was sold as a Troodon formosus ( I am aware it is an invalid taxon). When I committed to purchasing this, i was unaware that only Troodontid teeth had been found in Hell Creek and I tended to believe dealer ID's. I do not regret the purchase. It is a great little bone to have in our education program and it was not expensive. We want to cover Troodontids in our education program which is why I bought this. It was cheaper than a tooth. It was also a good lesson to learn early on and without a significant financial investment. I do my homework know before purchasing a dinosaur fossil and if I have questions, I put it here. It seems unlikely that that the dealer ID is correct just based on the lack of Troodontid bones that come from Hell Creek. I want to know we have and be accurate in what we present to kids so I have put some effort into figuring this out. It is a very small vertebra as you can see in the pictures. I did find some small theropod caudal vertebrae that look similar including a Troodontid. I have done some homework on this and tried to figure it out but I can not get much further on my own. All I can say for sure is that is does not appear to be a fish or mammal and I do not think it is a crocodilian either. Any thoughts or information would be helpful !!
  14. Sharktooth Hill Cetacean Ear Bone

    I know this is a cetacean ear bone and I know it is from Sharktooth Hill but that is ablut all I know for sure. It is pretty large at 3" long and 1.5'' wide which would seem to rule out of the smaller dolphin-like whales. My first thought was Aulophyseter morreci. It could also be a mysticeti as well. Regardless of species, it is a really nice addition to our STH whale collection.
  15. Been hunting the NSR now for a few years and this is the first time I've found a bunch of bones in matrix. Was out yesterday with @zoocosmolinaand her husband at a new hunting spot for all of us. We had an absolute blast! I found the following and the bones have a "fishy" look to em. Bones exposed on all 6 sides. I'd love to expose more to try and figure out what may be encased. Any recommendations for someone who has never prepped before? It's about 7 inches long x 4 inches wide x 3.5 inches deep.
  16. Hi folks. spotted this on a recent holiday in the UK to the south coast ( Dorset - the Jurassic coast ). the rock was approx. 250kg and I got it down to 80kg to get it in the car. the reason was I noticed this strange raised disc edge shape within the rock which does not appear man made. the rock is extremely hard. I plan to start removing the rock to expose more of it as I'm curious. any ideas as to if this is even a fossil and if so what it could be.
  17. Unknown Penn Dixie Find

    Here's another fossil from Penn Dixie I'm having trouble with. It's from the Devonian shale, and it can be hard to see in the photo as it blends in really well and is a bit worn. There is a trilobite in the upper part of the photo, I've circled the interesting feature in red. It's a circular shape with ribbed features radiating from the center. To be honest, I'm not entirely sure if it's actually a fossil or just an anomaly in the rock.
  18. Unknown fossil

    Hello! I found this fossil yesterday while searching for trilobites near the Buffalo River in middle tennessee. it measures approximately 5-6 inches long and around d an inch wide. Any information regarding it would be much appreciated. Thanks!
  19. Small wormlike fossils in hard mineral

    I'm still brand new here, and hoping that help from the ID posts will get me moving in the right direction. We have so many fossils here in Cincinnati and the outlying regions.. Thank you for helping!

  22. Lots of IDS needed

    I guys I have a large amount of unidentified fossils (40+). I was hoping you guys can Identify them for me. All were found in eastern NC (Aroura or Emerald Isle beach) Thanks, for any help. I have them numbered for easy reference. I also have them next to quarters and pennies for size reference. The quarter is 1 inch tall and wide and pennies are .75 inch tall and wide I can take more pics upon request 1.
  23. About a month ago, I headed out on two fossil trips to the well-known St. Leon roadcut in Indiana. I was hunting in the Liberty formation (late Ordovician) with the sole goal of finding some nice trilobites (which I definitely achieved!). Along with multiple rare trilobites, I was able to find some excellent examples of other fossils. The spoils were totally awesome, and I am itching to go back. I hope you enjoy. Best for last.
