    Strange bone

    I am new to all this and some of my ID books are still in the mail. Can you all help me ID this?

    Bone? Dinosaur Bone?

    Does this look like a dinosaur bone? Or any kind of bone for that matter? Found in alabama on private property. But near an area where dinosaur bones were discovered. Please help !
  3. Sinestia

    What is this bone?

    Hi, I can not figure out what this bone is. I got it from one of the paleo packs that PaleoCris sells so I am pretty sure it is from Florida. I know it’s some kind of bone. Here are 2 pictures of it...
  5. Hello, I found this on a walk along the Thames in London. It caught my attention due to the unusual shape. Can someone tell me if it is a bone or just a stone? It is not as heavy as one would expect a stone to be but I am not an expert. Many thanks, Fiona

    Found in Whitby

    Hi I found this on the coast of Whitby.. the circle at the top stud out and something different to the slate. After a bit of chipping the main bit came away easily and is definitely separate to the slate?? Any help would be greatly appreciated..
  7. I found this in my front yard while raking. I live on the outskirts of Fresno, Ca. Can anyone tell me what it is? I have found other, what looks to me, like bones.
  8. Hi all, Another find from Walton-on-the-Naze, possibly bone? Does anyone have any idea from what animal? thanks Gemma
  9. I found these on a sand bank next to the Brazos River. I believe they (the brown ones) are fossilized bone as they are quite heavy but I’m not really sure as I am quite new to rocks/fossils. I was wondering what type of the bone the weirdly shaped one is (joint?) and whether the second to last picture is of a plant fossil. Thanks in advance!
  10. I found this bone on the top of clay with waves washing over it. I have no idea if it is old but it looks that way! I'm looking for someone to help me identify it!

    ID help please

    Hello I picked this guy up off Micklers Beach in Florida today. I get a lot of sharks teeth but never saw one of these before. (Maybe not even a fossil at all?) Would appreciate thoughts on what it is. Thank you.

    Paso Robles, Ca. find - Whale?

    Found my first big fossil while digging a driveway on my property in Paso. Looking forward to identifying it. Seems like a large piece of spine or whale tail. Any guidance would be helpful. Just starting construction, so I will be on the lookout for more fossils.

    fossil ID for possible NSR bone

    Last month I went took my first trip to the North Sulphur River and while sifting through some gravel I found this. It is 16 mm long and 7 mm wide and resembles a bone to me, but I am no expert. Does anyone know what it is?
  18. Fadiasforest

    A Bone (?) from the Miocene

    I found this today at my local shark tooth site in the Miocene Burdigalian. It's a rather unique find for this site if I'm correct in thinking that this is really a bone fragment. It's not all that well preserved, so if it is one, it's probably not easy to identify, but I thought I'd give it a try here anyway. It's 3cm. long. Anybody have an idea?

    ID requested please

    The location of this is unknown but I'm working on it. It was given to me by a friend who either found it at Palo Duro Canyon, TX or in Colorado. Another possibility is that it is from her ex mother'-in-law's rock collection which would be from Montana or Nevada. Sorry for the vague location! I'm trying to get more accurate information but wanted to see if it's even something interesting and worth spending the time to track down the location with a possible call to an ex mother-in-law. Thank you for your time and input as I have zero knowledge of fossils.

    Mystery fossil from a newbie

    Does anyone have any idea what this might be? I found it on the beach Galveston Island, Gulf side west. February 2020 on a grey and windy day. I am new here, where ever we have traveled my head has always been down in the hope of finding new treasures. To hold a relic of ancient times in your hand is something very special.
  23. Hi Everyone, This is a beach-find from Haida Gwaii, Canada. I realize it’s not a fossil, but perhaps because someone has already said it’s most likely bone- I was looking for more help to narrow (or marrow!) it down. Approx 20cmx20cm Thank you!! I appreciate your input.

    Bone or suggestive shape?

    Picked this up Wednesday on my last visit to the Peace River. I was prospecting on some new sites and having modest success with small shark teeth and turtle shell pieces when I pulled up my first complete dolphin/porpoise periotic. In the next sifting screen I found the below specimen. I thought it could be a partial axis vert of some type but am not sure it is anything more than a suggestively shaped rock. Any input on what it may be would be appreciated.

    Partial Vert?

    I believe the below specimen is a partial vertebra. But if so, of what? Or is it just too broken to ID? Any input would be appreciated, thanks!
