  1. 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!
  2. 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.

    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?
  5. 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

    I found this oddity on Point Pleasant Beach, NJ last weekend. The 5-point symmetry suggests an echinoderm but the black, phosphatic preservation suggests anything but. Any thoughts?

    Partial Eagle Ray Dental Plates?

    Hi, I found these 2 unusual little pieces on a Tampa Bay beach in Florida. They are roughly 1 x 1 inches. At first I thought pottery shards or some seashell mold and put them in a box. I just saw a photo that they resemble, labeled Ray Dental plate. (brown photo) I attached 3 photos front and back of my specimen. What do you think?
  11. Hi, I'm new here, looking those with expertise to help identify this, appreciate any help. I found this in the water, about 2 or 3 feet from shore. I think it might be a part of a turtle shell, but it also looks like a sacrum. Any ideas? It's rather heavy for it's appearance.
  12. This riker mount displays the best shark teeth that I collected on 3 hunts sifting at Douglas Point beach, Charles County, Maryland. This is the Paleocene Aquia Formation. Bottom row contains several Odotus teeth. There are many goblin shark Anomotodon and sand tiger shark Carcharias. Also appears to be one pygmy white shark Paleocarcharodon in lower left corner.
  13. Hey all, Noticed there was not much info on these here on the forum or online in general. All of these have been found washed in from the tide of New Jersey's Ocean City. From what I could find these belong to Sea Robins and are part of their skull. The larger and more complete one shows more in detail how this would have looked on the actual fish. If anyone has more information as to what potentially the age may be it would be much appreciated! From what I have read based on seashells, the black coloring is due to being trapped in the sand for high periods of time, I would assume the sam

    Plum Island - Massachusetts

    Hello All, A friend of mine was walking the beautiful beach of Plum Island, Massachusetts, and came across this interesting treasure. Does anyone know what this might be? Thank you!
  15. Hi, My father found a weird looking bone, possibly fossilized, while walking on the beach of the German island Norderney. Date: 11.02.2021 Weight: 500g Height: 14.5cm Width: 12.0cm Opening: 4.0cm Any idea which species this might be from? Thanks a lot in advance, Helge

    What is this?!

    Hey guys and girls. I’m so sorry if this is a common thing, I don’t hit the beaches often. but I just couldn’t wrap my head around what this is. first I assumed coral, then thought maybe the inner part of a sea snail shell? sorry for sounding silly. Just curious and it’s late and this seems to be the only thing I can focus on, hahaha

    What is this?

    Hello all. Found on the beach on the New Jersey side of New York bay. About 5.5 inches by 3 inches. Not like anything I’ve ever found. Likely not a fossil. Several people suggested it’s a sturgeon scute. Any help appreciated
  18. Hi There - I was on a walk along the rocky beaches at Deer Island in Winthrop, Massachusetts earlier today. I came across this odd looking rock. Does anyone have any idea what I’m looking at? Is this indeed a rock, or could it be a fossilized chunk of something? Thanks for taking a look. Cheers!
  19. Found these a few months apart on a beach in Suffolk of the UK. I am pretty confident, after a little research, that the first bone here is a partial clavicle, although I have much less confidence about what. I read that they only exist in animals with prehensile forelimbs, so it could be some kind of ape? No marsupial presence in the Doggerland that I've been able to find. And, probably not early human, right? (I'm sorry if that's a silly question. It always crosses my mind.) The second, while extremely worn, I think it may be an antler fragment because it has numerous

    Hi I found this on a walk today, I’m not a fossil hunter but thought it looked interesting. Can anyone give me some idea of when it was formed and what it is? It measures approximately 10” or 26cm long when measured round the rock. Thanks

    Mystery Big Tooth(?)

    Also found on a shingle beach in South Suffolk, five or six months ago. I was delighted, and spent hours googling herbivores with the idea that it had to be something huge, but nothing fit. Is it not a tooth after all?
  22. I found this about 3 years ago along the South Suffolk coastline (in the UK) that meets the North Sea, where the Doggerland sank about ten thousand years ago, give or take. Based on googling, I believe it could be a fox leg bone, but if I'm wrong, please let me know! (Also, if these pictures don't meet spec, please let me know that too.) It's hollow inside, as far as I can see with a flashlight, and it narrows as well, but it's hard to photograph that. This is probably where a ligament would wrap around? Thank you in advance to everyo

    Irish Beach find

    Hello, I am looking to see if anyone can give their opinion on what this fossil is created from, I come across many fossils in areas i go looking for them but have not come across anything looking like this. It is approx 230mm in width from left to right in this picture and 200mm in height from top to bottom. Cant give photos from the back etc as it is on top of a large boulder. Hope it is something that jumps out for someone. Eoin.
