  2. Super tricky fossil shark tooth ID

    Hi guys, I posted this tooth a few months ago with the hopes of getting an ID. I heard some people say meg, and maybe some great white and chubutensis. I dismissed it, but yesterday when sorting through some of my shark teeth, I came across another one like it. Now I am fairly convinced it is none of those species. The strange curves of the enamel near the root, the incredibly long ends of the root, the lack of a real bourlette like a meg or a chub. The teeth are too similar to a meg in shape to be a great white, and can't be megs because they have no bourlette. I figured the first one might be a weird patho, but since i have found two now, I think that is unlikely. I believe they were found in south carolina. I also was wondering if this tooth is a thresher or a hooked mako?
  3. I found this specimen in a dry portion of a river bed. Have any of you ever seen a piece of petrified wood that looks like this? I'll add a link to a video proving that it is mineral and not just a piece of wood. https://youtu.be/28Y5XUQ223w
  4. I found this fossil in our drive and i think it looks like a mushroom!is it actually a fossil of a mushroom?? front back
  5. Penn Dixie trace fossil?

    Finally getting around to posting a pic of a piece I found at last weekends "Dig with the Experts" (I was there Saturday wearing my FF shirt). Along with several enrolled Eldredgeops, a nice prone one, a few brachs and snails, I brought this piece home as well. It isn't the easiest to get a good pic of, but I showed it to several people there including other FF members and the PD staff and nobody had seen anything quite like it. The consensus is that it's a trace but the ridge running along the middle is what's causing people to scratch their heads. Has anyone ever seen a similar example? Thanks in advance
  6. Unusual fossil

    Greetings, This is my first post and I am honored to be a part of this forum community. My goal is to be a courteous, respectful member of the forum - benefiting from, and deeply appreciating the vast amount of knowledge, expertise, and valued opinions shared on this site, and I hope I may have the opportunity to contribute something useful in the future. I received this fossil from my cousin several years ago and though I once knew what it was, I can no longer remember. Your thoughts and suggestions to what it is are greatly appreciated. Thank you.
  7. Hi all, Location: West Somerset Coast. Length approx 4 inches. Geology is Blue Lias but i was so far out to sea that it may be late triassic 0_o We've had very low tides here of late which have stripped the mud layer and have been exploring the revealed rock beds found a full bed of devils toenails, alongside modern day oysters.. Also found this, which is not like anything encountered down there before. Sorry in advance for the poor images, the specimen remains in situ.. What interests me is (all of it!) .. the apparent uniformity and the small circular depression in the middle at the bottom. ps the geology in the area was subject to considerable tectonic activity during the period of formation Can anyone help? All the best in your quests Ben
  8. Nevada Desert Fossil??

  9. Shark tooth identification needed

    So I fo u nd this and compared them to the local fossil charts and it doesnt match any of them. Someone have any idea?
  10. Hi there! Can someone please tell me what this is? Found on the shore of the Texas dike among a scattered pile of sun bleached bones. Thought it was interesting, and would like to know what it came from. I am fairly sure it is not fossilized, but figured I'd give it a shot. Fossilized or not it's pretty cool. Thanks! Lauren
  11. ok so i have just recieved a rough unsearched lot of New Jersey Cretaceous amber, and this particular inclusion caught my eye. at first i thought it could possibly be just a misty part of the amber but no, it definitely has a solid shape. strange round object with a protrusion from the middle that seems to have small hairlike things coming off the protrusion. i've been talking to vermiculosis about this inclusion and he says that it looked fungal at first, but he wasn't sure. if you need better pictures let me know as i'm working on the piece to bring you just that. the inclusion is white and about 1.5-2 mm across. i personally think it is a seed or some kind of fungal object but i couldn't help noticing it is somewhat like a tadpole in shape although that is 1 in a billion chance and the "tail" looks wrong under magnification.
  12. What Is This Please... Meteor Or Fossil

    Found in a dry creek-bed in Gene Autry in Carter county Oklahoma. Washita Valley just south of the Arbuckle Mountains. I think it is a meteor of some sort but not sure and would like help identifying this item please if anyone knows or could help. The top of it was laying next to the larger piece all in pristine shape and fits like a glove. There appears to be rust on it and it is a reddish color. The inside is hard and heavier. It makes my HD camera go weird with the color. Not sure why that happens. The settings are correct. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_kgA3OgAJsk&context=C4cc8ccfADvjVQa1PpcFM1OO2npywKDvmoX3t0Ix3KKL_Qr6keY1g=
