Total Newbie - Any ideas what these are? (Western NY, Livingston County)

Recommended Posts

Hi all! 
I'm a hobby hunter who normally visits Penn Dixie near Buffalo NY for my fossils where they tell me what everything is if I can't ID it myself. But my mom went for a hike recently in our creek (Groveland, Livingston County, NY, USA) and came back with these three fossils. At least, we're pretty sure they're fossils! I'm sorry that the measurements are in inches, my mom doesn't have anything with metric measurements on it. Each square is 1inch (~2.5cm)

I tried to give her the best instructions to take pictures like the pinned post, and this is what I got lol. I'm going to attach them each to separate messages so they don't get all jumbled.

Here's the first one:

You may have a fragment of a nautiloid.  The second photo seems to show the siphuncle penetrating a septum.

Thanks Don! Although, I'll be honest and say I have to google most of that :ighappy:

You are welcome.  And googling is fine, that's a good way to learn.  If you still have questions you can ask them here of course.

A Google each day keeps the cobwebs away.
