  1. Hello all, on vacation to Denmark we met a man on the beach searching for fossils. He explained a bit what to look for and we started looking for fossils. After a few minutes i found a few what i thought were fossils and we went back to the man. He told me i found some belemnite fossils. So me and my wife continued searching and found more belemnite fossils and some other possible fossils. Unfortunately the man had left so we could not ask him about our other finds and that brings me to this forum. I want to know if what i found are real fossils and if so, from what plant or animal they are. I hope the pictures i took are clear enough for you to determine what they are. Thank you.
  2. Hello there, I'm a first time poster so I apologise if I've missed anything off or done anything incorrectly, I tried to do my best with pictures. All of the attached photos are of beach finds found between chapel point and skegness, lincolnshire in the UK, so I can't give any detail on what formations they came from sadly, although we get a lot of wash down from the Yorkshire coast and the carboniferous formation in Northumberland. I've hazarded a guess at a couple of them myself, but would really appreciate someone else correcting me or confirming my thoughts. Again, I apologise if anything isn't up to spec. Thanks.

    Mysterious beach lump. Ambergris?

    Hi Everyone, This light (very light) lump was found on the shores of Haida Gwaii, Canada. Similar feeling to a shell? And a bit waxy. Any idea what it may be? Never encountered something such as this. Searching for a needle now to do the ambergris test. Thanks in Advance!

    Can't identify

    hi, I have a question about something myself and my daughter found yesterday while walking on garristown beach near kinsale, she think it's a tooth, but I am not quite sure. Ruby would love to find because she loves fossils. Anyone know anything. Thank you for your time

    Fossilised bone

    Hiya, First time posting….. We went for a family fossil walk this weekend along Barton-on-sea beach, Hampshire, UK. Among the fossilised shark teeth and shells my daughter also picked this out of the sand. I was thinking it is a fossilised meta-tarsal or phalange bone, looks like iron pyrite, but no idea what from? Hoping someone on here can lead me in the right direction. Thanks Vikki

    Is this a tooth or barnacle?

    I'm a super baby amateur that doesn't know different kinds of rocks from each other, but I found this on a beach in Staten Island (a part of New York City). Current family argument is: Tooth or barnacle? If it's a tooth, what animal could it be from? Thank you for any help you can provide!

    Weirdly shaped rock or fossil

    This was found on South Myrtle Beach in South Carolina. Most of the piece is worn but there are some smooth surfaces. The shape is irregular. Is this a worn fossil or a weird rock?

    Curved Bone-claw? Hoof?

    This was found recently on South Myrtle Beach in South Carolina. It looks like a bone but the curvature is more pronounced than what we usually find. It also has one end with more of a point. Any insight appreciated

    Large rock or fossil

    I picked this up on the beach yesterday. It is heavy and has some characteristics of bone but internal structure is more rock-like. Would love help with identifying.

    Found at beach in Florida

    Was walking along the beach near Clearwater, Florida and came across these items. Seems as though they are bone or fossilized bone? Totally unsure. Any insight would be helpful and greatly appreciated. I was completely stumped.

    Do I have a fossil?

    I found this on a beach in the Outer Banks in North Carolina USA. It’s quite heavy. What might it be?
  14. new to fossil hunting and found this on a trip to cabrillo beach in San Pedro. any help is appreciated!

    Shark fragment?

    I have lived in Wilmington NC recently moved to Myrtle Beach SC known for finding Meglodon and many other sharks teeth. I’ve found a few smaller teeth yet ran across this the other day. It looks to me like a fragment of a possible megalodon but I’m a newbie to this. It’s intriguing me tremendously! What’s your opinion?

    Yorkshire coast find

    Any thoughts on what this might be?

    Fossil ID

    Fossil found on the San Francisco CA coast. Fossil has snail shells but I was wondering what the smaller dark thing is.

    Large bone on SoCal beach

    Found this beauty this morning on the Palos Verdes Peninsula beach in Southern California. Is this vertebrae? And if so, what animal? Specimen is probably five-six inches long, well worn, and marrow has been replaced by something else- tar, perhaps? One end is rounded, while the other appears sort of tripod shaped. Thanks for any input! Melanie

    Found this on the beach

    Found this while going through shells on the beach. I'm thinking it's a shark tooth but the cracks/splits on one side is confusing me. Tried to search and Google came up with a fossil so I decided to post here. Thanks in advance!

    Tilly bone or coprolite?

    Hi all, I found this on Matoaka Beach, Calvert Cliffs, Mayrand. Sorry I don't have a ruler with the image - as you can see it is quite small - about 15mm Thanks, Tom
  21. Hello! I am a high school science teacher from North Carolina, USA. I recently visited Cape Lookout, NC, which is part of the Outer Banks. I found both of these fossils on the beach and am wondering what they might be. I want to have some kind of ID in mind when I show my students. I have no idea what geologic time period they are from. The first one appears to be a rib or long bone fragment. Possibly from a Sirenian or a Cetacean. It has some weird weathering on one side that almost looks like bite marks. The second one appears to be a fragment either from some large animal's skull or maybe a piece of a large turtle/tortoise shell. These are only guesses, please let me know if you have any idea what these may have belonged to, and if the weird weathering pattern might actually be bite marks. I have several other beach finds that I would love some help identifying if this post goes well. Thank you in advance!
  22. Hello! I have found these fragments on the beach over the years in North Carolina. I don't remember exactly which beach each one came from, possibly the Fort Macon area. I think they are all pieces of turtle or tortoise shells, but if anyone can help pinpoint these any further that would be cool! Thanks!
  23. Hello, I found this fossilized bone on the beach on Tybee Island, GA while looking for shark teeth. It looks like a tiny alligator or snake head but I'm guessing it's not. Any help to ID would be greatly appreciated! The first pic is the top of it, second is it flipped over. Thank you for any help!
