    Hawaii Modern Bone Beach Find

    Bone is 6 inches across and was found on a beach in Hawaii.
  2. CrashLizard

    Tooth, teeth, or something else?

    Edit: sorry somehow the images got out of order. Just to make it more challenging, I guess. These are some other items I have found looking for shark teeth near Venice Florida, in the surf. I'm not sure if the first four are similar or not. All conical, and show worn or broken off layers. One is slightly corkscrews, and one has a bump on one side. The second batch are all similar, with ridges around a cusp, and a smaller end. The last looks like a human incisor, though I would guess it is from a deer or something similar. I found a couple pieces of fossilized antler in

    Fossil tooth - bovine, horse?

    We found this today at the beach near Venice, Italy (Adriatic Coast). So far we've determined it is a tooth from either a cow or an equine species. We burned it with a lighter - it does smell burnt, so probably not fossilized. Does anybody know the species?
  4. I thought this looked like a tooth crown, but there is nothing but the crown if that is what it is. Might well be something else. Found on a beach near Fort Pierce. About 3/4 inches square. Not so high. Thanks for your help.

    Fossil Tooth From Florida Beach.

    Found this tooth on a beach near Fort Pierce Florida. It is almost exactly one inch long across the crown and 3/8 inch wide. The width is very irregular as you can see. Thanks for your help.
  6. Hello, this was found along the beach in Maui, Hawaii and my boyfriend and I are curious if anyone might know what it could be? =) It has distinct ridges all along. Maybe a crab claw fossil? Thanks for your help!
  7. Hello! So I found these three fossils and was curious to know about them... one i think is to be a bryozoan branch the tooth i believe to be a cow tooth not sure how old it may be and the last one is a type of small brachiopod its super tiny but again I don't know much about fossils yet but I am ready to learn more ! So if any one knows anything about these fossils that'd be a great help! First 6 pictures are from the riverbed and the last two are from the beach in Lübeck,Germany Thanks!
  8. I found this fossil at Caspersen Beach Florida, while snorkeling please help me identify it, ill go crazy if i don't find out what it is.

    Fossil on Barrassy beach

    I found this fossil on Barrassy beach in Ayrshire Scotland. It looks like a shell on the outside with a mesh of white and grey rock inside. I haven't seen any other shell fossils that look like this though. It's partially burnt on the top, I found it next to a fire pit so it has probably been scorched recently. What do you think this is and how old do you think it is?
  10. Beachbumfinds

    Skull from the beach?

    I found this on the beach in Englewood Florida. I have 2 of them but this one is a bit bigger.
  11. Found this fossil on the beach, any idea what it could be?

    Sharks teeth ID from Oak Island, NC

    I recently found these beginning on June 2021 on the beach at Oak Island, NC. Curious as to what exactly a couple of these teeth actually are. I have some suspicions but I defer to the resident experts. Thank you! The two isolated on the first two pictures and the bottom 5 from left to right on the 3rd row (Mako??)

    Found on a beach, English east coast

    Good day all, hope everyone is well and having a great day. To start, I have absolutely no clue about anything fossil related. I was just curious as to what this was, there isn’t anything big and scary in England with teeth this large so it’s just strange to me, it’s probably nothing so I am sorry if it’s obvious. It was found on a beach that fossil hunters say is fairly notorious for just sharks teeth but even I know this isn’t from a shark. Thank you for any help

    Beach find, fossil?

    Hi, I work at the nature centre on the Isle of Islay. We had a school visit today and a little girl brought in the rock/fossil pictured. She found it on a pebble beach near Bowmore on the Isle of Islay. I had a quick look at our fossil books and couldn't identify it. Apologies for lack of scale, is about 10cm long. Any help much appreciated. Thanks

    Muliple IDs from Cape May

    Heya~! I recently returned from a trip to Cape May, NJ and spent most of my trip on Sunset and Higbee beach picking through the rocks and shells looking for cool stuff. I really want to get into rock hounding/fossil collecting, but I didn't really know what I was looking at so I just grabbed a bunch of stuff that I thought looked neat or interesting. I'm really happy with my haul but I was wondering if any of you nice folks could tell me if I have anything of particular interest? This photo has two that I'm sure are coral fossils, but I don't know what species. The other things lo

    Fossil Coast fossils Question

    Hi Has anyone recently hunted Velano or Ponte Vedra beaches near st Augustine Florida? What is being found? How does it compare to Venice Florida? I read there was a recent replenishment and if so, did this impact fossil hunting? Also, anyone know what the parking is like there for off beach? Is there ample parking?

    Random Beach finds

    I just finished going through some fossils I'd found on the beach here in eastern North Carolina, and I don't know what any of these are. If y'all had any idea, would you please let me know? Thank you! The last picture is of a couple of my favorite finds I have found; a tapir tooth and what I believe to be mouthparts of a porcupine fish.
  18. Hi everyone, Found these two on Milnerton beach, Cape Town. I’m hazarding a guess that it’s cetacea, possibly flipper phalange? I did find a paper on pliocene cetacea found about 10km further up the coast (https://www.researchgate.net/publication/331004600_Fossil_cetaceans_from_Duinefontein_Koeberg_an_early_Pliocene_site_on_the_southwestern_Cape_South_Africa). Tried to contact the author but no answer yet. I don’t know much about fossils so anything you can tell me about these would be greatly appreciated!
  19. Hi everyone! Nice to meet you! I'm a bit of a beach comber and recently stumbled across one of my most unique little finds yet. I found it on the shore of Fire Island in New York exactly as is. The outer crust is delicate and would clearly flake off easily if I scraped it. Otherwise, I nearly confused it for a rock (see the underside) when I was walking by. The barnacles and scallop shell are pretty clear, the rest are a new mystery to me. I posted elsewhere and the leading thought is a layered colony of bryozoans. Before I found this and reached out, I'd n

    NJ Cretaceous ID Help

    Hello, I need some help identifying the owner of my bone collection. Long story short, I have been obessed with collecting some reptile like fossil bones in various states of preservation from my local beach over the last year. I have probably about 30 in total. Each day, I'd go back down to the site to see what had rolled in. Most are small "finger like" bits but, these are my favorites of the bunch. Anyway please have a look and I would be thrilled if someone might help to id and let me know if I have discovered something cool here. I am in a nj coastal cretaceous area.
  21. Found this object on the beach today in the Netherlands (was thinking it was a tooth)- Cadzand ( south of the Netherlands known for fossil finds). I have been trying to ID it and would love some help. Thanks so much (hand for reference size (woman with small/medium hand size)

    Murdock Beach Fossils WA

    Me and my girlfriend went to Murdock Beach, we found a ton of concretions, one of which (which I left in the car and can't include) was an agatized acila clam I believe. With pretty good detail. However that was the only fossil that I found which I could recognize. I will post all the finds here which I was curious about. I continually saw these rectangular cross sections of some strange agatized fossil. Then, I split one of these rectangular fossils just right and got a print of what the "skin" or outside layer looks like as almost a cast from a mold of agate. The perfect
