  1. Florida bone

    Found this in Manatee county. Not sure what it is from or is. It is broken on one end and the other appears to be some sort of growth plate.
  2. found in Hell Creek, MT

    Hi, I have no clue on this one. I was out on private land near Jordan MT. I found this rock which is unlike any other in the area. I spent two days on the property and found nothing else even remotely close to this. The land owner has had several Triceratops and Tyrannosaurus taken from his land. He didn't know what this was either. I thought it might be coprolite but I don't see any chunks of material. It looks like the core is darker with this lighter brown outside. It's relatively dense compared to most of the rocks I was picking up. It's about 7" long and 3.75" wide at base. I am thinking about cutting it. I'd be most appreciative if someone could help. Thanks!! Frank
  3. From a friend in Utah

    A friend gave these to me and said his mother Found them years ago when they lived in Utah. Other than that I have no idea of their origin. Any help in Identification would be greatly appreciated.
  4. Removing excess material

    I have a fossil I attempted to get identified to no avail unfortunately, but I would still like to see if I can possibly expose it more. I removed it from the shale at the Montour fossil pit in Danville, PA. It has a lot of that orange rock like material(sorry about not knowing proper terminology ) and I was wondering if there is any good method to expose it more and make it all nice and pretty . Would it best to attempt to remove it from the rest of the rock of leave some attached to it? All help is greatly appreciated thanks in advance!
  5. Help Identifying Dino fossil

    I would appreciate any help in identifying this fossil. My father purchased it somewhere in the Western US during the 1960's or earlier, but unfortunately I do not have any provenance. It sat in a display case until my parents passed away a few years ago. Due to space limitations, these are low-res pictures, but i'm willing to take different perspectives/resolutions as needed. My apologies for the poor tags... I truly appreciate the help! Best Regards,
  6. Shark teeth

    I just bought 3 shark teeth from the gift shop in our local museum earlier today. No idea where they're from or if they're even fossils. But for $2.16 US each, not really a major issue if they aren't fossils. Tooth 1 is 1.5 inches long x 1.25 inches wide, tooth 2 is 1.75 inches long x 1.5 inches wide & tooth 3 is 1.5 inches long x just shy of 1.5 inches wide. Tooth 2 has a few hairs stuck to the back of the root area, so I guess we could maybe get DNA if they're fake. Each has both front & back views. Looks like you can see part way through the enamel of tooth 1. Go easy on me if I got ripped off for $6.48
  7. Partial sand dollar with extra

    I've had this for years, tucked away & had forgotten about it. Partial sand dollar with beautiful markings. Looking at it now, I see something on the underside that has me curious. At first they (2 of them) looked like small agates, which seemed odd. A closer look shows what appears to be something inside. There are the usual partial shells & probable steinkerns, but these 2 things are different. I've focused mainly on the larger of the two since it's easier to photograph for me, using a few different angles. I'll let you be the judge on them. Am I just seeing thing's or is there really something in there? Found on the NW Oregon coast.
  8. Crab fossil maybe?

    Hello! My brother and I have gone to Big Brook in NJ a couple a times, and stumbled on this. My brother is convinced it is a crab, while I am still on the fence about it. I've done some searching online and never found any records of a whole crab shell, so it'll be nice to get some identification. Thanks!
  9. Found near Mulbring Quarry, NSW. What are they?

    What are these shell looking things? I really have no idea however if it helps they were found alongside some bryozoans.
  10. West coast Scotland find I.d.

    Hi, a friend of mine found this on the West Coast of Scotland. The ‘egg’ shaped bit is approximately the size of a grapefruit. Any ideas what it may be. Many thanks.
  11. Final batch of fossils from work. Even though there's only 2 left, these should be interesting at least. I have a bunch of other fossils, but because of what I've learned already I ID'd the others on my own. I'm not really sure what this one is, but it almost seems like a fragment of one of those spiral/circular shells because of the slight curvature. Any ideas? (My work is moving offices, so I don't have a ruler on hand. Earbud for size reference.) (1/2)
  12. College internship fossils

    I think this is some type of coral. Its eight inches in length 1&3/4width the fossil is two tubes that run parrel with each other but still is attached in the middle. Inside the tubes, there are hollow in the center may be for transportation of water and nutrients or something.
  13. Sea fan and crinoid?

    It looks like it could be a small crinoid, but the structure next to it has me stumped. Crinoids don't branch off like that, do they? Reminds me a little of a modern sea fan. Probably Michigan/Indiana as usual. (7/8)
  14. Yet another coral from the Michigan/Indiana area. Last one, I swear. Probably. This one is kind of an odd, buckeye shape. It's worn fairly smooth, but I think I see tabulae. (5/8)
  15. Another small coral from Michigan/Indiana. It's different from the other ones in that the imprints are really small, and only on that one side. Any idea what kind it is? (3/8)
  16. Small coral chunk. Tabulate?

    I have a small coral chunk here, probably from the Michigan/Indiana area like the others. It looks similar to a tabulate coral, in my extremely limited knowledge. Any thoughts? (2/8)
  17. Time for the second batch! Hopefully these should be a little more interesting than the medley of corals from two days ago, but there are still a few corals to be identified. At any rate, I have a weird imprint fossil here that I'm not sure of. Probably from the Michigan/Indiana area like the others. Any ideas? (1/8)
  18. Tooth?

    hey just cleaning some peice and was wonder what this is
  19. Unknown fossil with crinoids

    Time for the second batch of fossils that I've found out on the job. I have four to upload today and this is the first. I think I found this near the Michigan/Indiana border. There are two crinoid columnals in the rock next to the darker structure. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
  20. Is this fossil? Or iron minerals?

    Found in NSW Australia. Is it a fossil or just an interesting iron mineral?
  21. First off, not all the pics do this much justice. Brand new camera & not quite sure on lighting yet. Anyhow, I found this the other night while outside at work. I looked down at the river rock landscaping in this one area & saw what looked like a shadow that was at the wrong angle with the light, so I picked it up. Took it inside & this is what I had found. 4.5 cm long x 4 cm wide x about 1.75 cm thick weighing 27.2 gm. Some of the edge views show what looks like more extending down into whatever the matrix is. It doesn't fizz with hydrogen peroxide. I keep thinking shell when looking at it, but I could be mistaken. Found in Central Washington State from rock dredged from the Yakima River.
  22. Find or strange rock?

    Hello all, thank you for providing this section of the forum. My son and we’re kayaking last week and we pulled over on a sandbar that was exposed due to low water levels. There was also a small water inlet that fed into the river at this spot. He found this specimen while were looking for fossils in the rocks on top of the bar and got excited. Any help identifying it would be much appreciated. We have not found any great fossils as of yet, just some shells and other small things. We were on the Shenango River in Mercer County in Pennsylvania between Jamestown and Greenville.
  23. Unknown stone with fossils

    Hi I know nothing about fossils etc, I was on Charmouth beach this morning and found this. I have more photos and it has fossils in the quartz inside as well. Can any one help what it is etc thanks matt
  24. Bone identification

    Hey everyone, I was wanting to see if this bone is able to be identified by anyone. Seller does not know what it is or where it’s from, but it’s listed as possible dinosaur. I know it’s probably a long shot with the lack of information, but I thought it was worth a try. Seller says it’s 190 mm long. Thanks.
  25. Need to identify

    Can you guys identify this for me please? thank you! Very weird species. My observations: skull and dentition resembling modern felines, with eye sockets to the front and sharp teeth pointing to carnivores. If you look at the feet, knees and lung, the lungs are thin on top then enlarge at the bottom, the knees are similar to ours (bent to the front) instead of cats (bent to the back) and has large long feet. These three factors indicate the possibility of a biped specimen? Notice how each feet has one finger with an extra bone, like some dinosaurs, maybe housed a claw? However, the Waist bone and spine bending at the beginning of the waist bone show that the species is more inclined to walk on all fours. The problem is that this fossil is lacking arms, with no presence or indicator of even a shoulder socket (weird, or possible?). I am confused! Please help
