Unidentified fossils


fossiling

Recommended Posts

After the secret Santa organised by Ionrocks, I ended up with a bunch of stuff I can't identify. 

The fossils are arranged according to letter, please use the corresponding letter for reference.

You are taking Your pictures on a very reflective surface which makes it harder to tell what is there. Please place the fossils on a non reflective surface and reshoot the pictures and give multiple angles of view (front, back and sides.). I use an old t-shirt as a background for My pictures.

I see nothing wrong with the smoked glass as a background for the images, provided the camera focus can be controlled. The images are  too small, slightly unfocused, and there are not enough views.  Collecting data is crucial to an ID.  Maybe the bones would be more impressive if we knew more about them.

Looks like a very worn shark tooth, with no enamel remaining.

now we've tackled this one, I'll be posting new pics when I get the oppotunity to snap more. ^_^

makes sense, since it is very brittle.

The second item (B.) could be a ray tooth plate fragment with two rows, possibly Eagle Ray tooth plate, showing the crushing surface, not the root.

D. looks like fish vertebrae.
