  1. Rock or fossil

    I found this probably rock near Estes park Colorado, I’m pretty sure it’s a rock but I thought i would come here and ask just in case, so fossil or not?
  2. Got back out with my kids a couple of times last week to the Calvert Cliffs for some crabbing and fossil hunting. The tides were really low so there was a lot more beach exposed than I've seen in awhile. We were primed for some nice finds and weren't disappointed! There was so much shell line and tidal bottom exposed, though, it was almost hard to pick where we wanted to search. Everywhere looked good! Anyway, we combed the prime areas as best we could and ended up with some really great teeth, verts, and a bunch of nice rib fragments for some reason. Teeth highlights were a really sweet giant white (C. Plicatilis) tooth -- I think -- a couple of cow shark teeth, and, of course, some great hemipristis for the Hemihunter! We picked up a couple of cool fish verts, too, but I could use help with ID on these--neither are tuna, I don't think. Also, what I thought at first was just another piece of ray plate (ho hum) turned out to be a chunk of ray barb, which I have never found before. I was glad my spidey sense told me to take a closer look at that one. We also pulled a few cetacean verts out of the tidal rubble, one still with some process attached, which was neat. Rolling over some clay chunks in search of hiding teeth paid off when we uncovered half of what must have been a beefy 3" meg--before it got weathered to heck. Still, it was half a meg! Finally, we collected another little mystery (to me) tooth with a small cusp and a really fat, triangular root. Any ideas on what that one is would be appreciated. Oh, we also came across a 6" blue crab that had just shed minutes before. It was so soft it couldn't even hold up a claw out of the water and felt like jello. Well, we brought that guy home, floured and fried him up whole, and sprinkled on some Old Bay. Delicious! I pulled together our best finds below. Enjoy the pics!
  3. Potentially Petrified Wood

    Hello all! I am a new member, and this is my first post. Could I please have some help figuring out if these rocks are petrified wood? Most of them were found in a small Pennsylvanian stream. It looks like they are quartz, crystal quartz, but I am no expert. There should be about two pictures of each rock. Thanks for your help, and I have more pictures of different rocks if needed.
  4. Confusing fossil

    What kind of fossil is this. I got it in one of those fossil grab bags. It has many lines running through the top and two “layers” sort of.
  5. I had purchased a lot of Madascar banded agates, and it looked too good to be true. So one was broken only to find a clear, banded pattern underneath about a millimeter thick colored outside. If one is like this, then I presume all is. I have spent alot of money purchasing these just to be fake? Please help me to be sure.
  6. Seashell from SE Minnesota

    Hi everyone, i am new to the forum, I am from the east coast of the US but spend my summers in Southeastern Minnesota. I found this (what I think is an oyster shell or bigger Brachiopod) while agate hunting near Winona MN. But I have no idea, that is why I am posting. The Interesting thing about this fossil is that it is whitish with what looks like little worms or possibly sea weed? The shell is 2 inches long (50.8 MM) and 1 inch and 3/4 wide (44.45 MM). Please let me know if you need any other info to help identify what it is.
  7. Fossil?

  8. This was found in a pile of old stones near my home (countryside of western New York State not that far from the shores of Lake Ontario.) the rocks were delivered to put down in a stone driveway and I happened to stumble across this a year or so ago. I would love to know what it is/was.
  9. These teeth were found along the Potomac River in Western MD, in the Aquia formation. I am having a tough time finding information on teeth from this location but I believe these are possibly Pigmy White teeth (Palaeocarcharodon orientalis). All six show signs of serrations, but there are other teeth from the Paleocene that might look similar? I need help identify them and don't want to mislabel them in my collection. Also I found these two smaller teeth with serrations on one side but they seem unlikely to be Pigmy Whites. Any idea what they are?
  10. White sharks teeth fossils?

    Every now and then on the forum someone posts a cream colored meg, or some other type of white sharks tooth. I just thought it was cool and moved on, but after finding two white sharks teeth myself (one below) I started to wonder how this could be. I extremely doubt it’s the original enamel, though I’ve doubted true things before. Would this be because of a certain mineral? Perhaps plant acids, such as in lightning strikes? Just from wear? Are there multiple factors?
  11. Great White

    From the album Mitchu Fossils

    Beautiful Great White found in NC
  12. Great white?

    I just bought this for about ten bucks because I've been looking for a reseonably priced ( or better yet cheap) great white, as well as an angustidens (think I found one) and a chubutensis. Now I probably should have asked before I bought, but is this really a great white? Just want to make sure because I'm not great with the shark teeth IDs yet, especially with the white and the chronospecies with carcharocles. Sellers pictures, don't know what subforum this goes in. Bone valley btw.
  13. Greetings friends. Of the many, many fossils I've exposed here, this is the first I've seen any material like this. I hope the pics can capture it, it is actually near snow white. Its pearly white, has an apparent directional grain to it, is loosely layered and is very fragile. It can be scratched/scraped,dug up with a tooth pick. Is there a common name or process associated with this material ? This has filled the void left by a shell. Very cool. Puts you in mind of an actual deteriorated shell. Thanks.
  14. South African shark tooth ID

    I just got this interesting white shark tooth, it was found somewhere on the west coast of South Africa. It has beautiful wavy edges, and looks to represent an early example of either escheri or hubbelli/carcharias. Id love to hear some thoughts on what lineage this tooth would be from given its location. Also, what species would you assign it to? cheers!
  15. Weird bone?

    Saw this on eBay today, not mine, any idea what it is?
  16. Need help with identification

    Maybe some type of Brachiopod, or Coral
  17. What could this be?

    If you have any clue what this could be, please let me know . Found in Michigan, in our creek buried in sand. I thought it was a bone. I see a hole, then something more inside the hole. I tried posting the best pictures. There is one picture that I got the rock wet. It also looks reddish? Thank you.
  18. Fossil Hash?

    Hello my name is Rhonda I am new to this site. I am from Michigan. I believe I found some fossil hash. Can someone please help me identify some of the things you see. Thank you.. I have more pictures too.
  19. Potential coprolite?

    So I was walking around a parking lot made out of limestone rocks (lots of shell and plant fossils in those) and wandered across this oddity. Looks like a piece of poop but it is slightly pliable? I can push my nail into it and slightly bend it so I'm not sure what it is.
  20. Great white shark drawing

    I'm not sure where to post this, but figured this board was the most suitable. Here's a great white I drew a few of years ago. I might try to draw a few extinct species next.
  21. Purse SP-2/15/16

    Wow, let me tell you, today was an interesting day. I headed out to Douglas Point for the first time today(been to Purse several times) and man did I get a hand full. When we first arrived at the beach it was pretty choppy and a little windy. We made it past the first set of cliffs and found some beach and started searching. Thats when the wind picked WAY up. We kept moving and heading down the beach fighting violent waves and making our way through deep water with big waves with only hip boots on. lets just say we got a little wet, not the best thing to do in the middle of February. After a mile of walking or so we realized we wouldn't be able to make it back the way we came and our only option was to make it all the way to Purse and walk up the trail there to the road and then back to Douglas Point where we parked. Fortunately with all the wave action we were able to still find some teeth. Found some interesting material that I believe to be Scutes? Need to look it up haha. It wasn't until we made it back to the car that my Dad showed me he found his first PaleoCarcharodon! A little small but really not too bad of shape. It was a learning experience for sure. Feel free to jump in and help me with a little ID. Also took a few macro pics, enjoy! Boneheadz
  22. Sorry I'm late to the party fellas! Here are my pics from our hunt. Please follow the link back to the original thread for pics of the my white meg and cusped meg finds!!! http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/44553-florida-sifting/page-2

  24. Good Ol Aurora

    So I doodled on down to Aurora on Friday (8/31/12). My parents had come to visit and since I'm always yammering about fossils I decided to show them what it was all about. They loved it. My mom's first outting produced a Carcharocles angustidens tooth with the corner broken off, a nice lil modern mako and a cow shark lower (Notorrhynchus primigenius). I found my first dolphin tooth, first squalodon tooth and a nice modern tiger. In all reality, I think I had a hemipristis magnet on me! LOL! My dad did well. Finding all kinds of various teeth and some nice shark vert disks. He also found a very tiny dolphin tooth and my husband as well. Hubby found a Catticus to boot. And we both found a couple little thresher teeth which according to the museum director have gotten scarce there. He found a nice pathalogical tooth that appears to be sand tiger. I found a nice fish vert and some sand tigers that looked perfect (until I pulled them out of the dirt). We all know how that goes!!! I love the little stuff too. I found the tiniest sand tiger in my collection and it is nearly perfect! And, the smallest hemipristis I've ever come across. And of course as always a handful of the copper, smooth hammerhead, lemon, silky shark teeth. As well as a couple bull shark teeth. I did find a stumper. It looks like a sharpnosed tooth (Rhizoprionodon sp.) but the front of the tooth has huge "horns" coming from the root, throwing me off. And I ran into MikeDOTB. It was a pleasure and I have to say THANKS AGAIN MIKE!!!! Well I will post a few pictures now!
