    Fossil id? Shark tooth?

    Hi I found this near peublo Colorado on a private site. And I was wondering what it could be. I was just wondering if I could have some help for ID? This is what it came out of.

    Identification of Abelisaurid

    I got this on online auction site few days ago, yet to arrive. The seller told me he got this from a dealer in Madagascar. Is this from Madagascar? Or is it from Kem Kem bed and the seller is just lying? He has better reviews in online auction site but he described the tooth as Carcharodontosaurus
  7. I took a fossil finding guided tour last month and now I'm pretty much hooked! If someone could please help with identifying these. Found them a couple days ago sifting in a creek in central NJ.
  8. We took the family out for a day trip to Big Brook today and among many sharks teeth and squid pens, we found this interesting thing. My first thought was corprolite but it has cracks and structure? Idk any help would be great!

    Tektites or just a dark rock?

    I've been finding lots of these small black pebbles right above the late Cretaceous gravel layer in the creeks nearby. These are very dark in color and when you strike both rocks together, it smells like sulpher. These rocks also stand out compare to other light limestone rocks in the area. Not sure where they came from or how they ended up here. Most measures around 1 inch or less / 25.4 mm. I also tried magnet test and non-magnetic.
  10. My faithful assistant and I have been sidelined with covid. But we felt good yesterday so we decided to explore a creek in Austin, Texas that has some Eagle Ford Shale exposed. It was a sunny, warm afternoon, and a cold front would be moving in at night. At this location we've found quite a few teeth in the loose rocks strewn about. We're hoping to find mosasaur material but we've had no luck yet. Our goal was to get a bucket of gravel to search for micro-fossils. I suspect most of the teeth are eroding from the underside of a large rock slab in the creek. We think this because my assistant stood on the rock causing the edge to break. He fell in the creek, flat on his back, and as he was getting up he noticed some exposed teeth. We collected a bucket of gravel by the rock slab and searched through a small bowl and found several small teeth. The teeth range in size from 1/4 to 1 mm. We also took a few rocks with some small teeth sticking out. It was a fun hunt after being stuck inside for the past week.

    Shell Surprise in NJ Cretaceous brook

    Found this little clam type full mold in NJ Cretaceous stream (not Big Brook). First time I've found a shell mold like this there. Reminds me of the Coquina clams in the undertow along the Jersey beaches in the summer. Any info on what it's nomenclature may be? Fun highlight of the day outside of the common shark teeth.
  12. I'm wondering what the rounded fossil might be? The place it was found contains mostly sand, and smaller shark teeths here and there. I think later createous? Really small shark teeth sometimes, not more than 2-3 mm sometimes. The rounded fossil is about 1cm on the long side. It might just be a pebble, or a fish tooth or a gastric stone, or a miss-grown shark teeth? I really don't know? I'll add some of the shark teeths for reference so you guys know the setting it was found in.
  13. Dear members, here I want to present my latest hunting trip, in the south east of France. This region has been known for decades to geologists for the vas amount of outcrops of Cretaceous age. In fact, there's even a GSSP and a stratotype section. Since most of these areas are protected, I checked where I could collect fossils freely. A famous spot for collectors is Carniol, located 125 km (77 mi) north of Marseille. Here, Aptian (Early Cretaceous) clays crop out and fossils can be easily collected by hand or with a small tool. A view of the outcrop: Fossils are extremely abundant. You don't need to excavate, you can easily pick those exposed on the surface. Because of these, many are too fragmented or fragile, but there's no shortage of well preserved specimen! Ammonoids are the most common specimens. I have not been able to ID them yet, because of the lack of specific papers on Carniol. Here's two of the largest and best preserved specimen that I found: Belemnites are extremely common as well, but complete specimens much more rare. Here's a complete specimen: And here a large one! And now, all my finds together: you can see ammonoids, belemnites, gastropods and bivalves. The best-preserved fossils after a cleaning process: Finally, I'm not sure about these: Here's all! I sincerely hope that you enjoyed my post. I'd love to hear your comments and hopefully IDs. Besides, if you have any reading suggestion, they are more than welcome. Thanks, Fabio
  14. Went to explore the creek with my family to enjoy a beautiful, peaceful day. My hubby found a tooth in the creek bed that cuts into Cretaceous clay and I initially thought it was a shark tooth but not like any I had seen before. Also, found something with crosshatched markings and was wondering if it is a fossil or just an erosion pattern on a stone. Thanks for taking a look.(Hands look like fossils)This measures about an inch across

    Pleae help ID strange item

    I have no idea what this is. My 4 year old says it's an ear. I found it today while walking in a streambed, so it's still a little wet. The first 4 pictures are with flash because it's cloudy today. The last 2 are without flash.
  22. This little guy has been floating around. Is this a composite Hyphalosaurus? Part of the head looks to be, but the body looks decent in my opinion. What do you all think?
  23. Monday was Labor Day, a holiday. I was going to be off work and home alone. I woke up early for a day off really motivated to get up and get out to the North Sulfur River (NSR), but I was feeling a bit lazy. I didn’t want to wear myself out too much. I am on call all week and being worn out isn’t a good way to start being on call if you have to stay up all night working. I had not been out to the NSR since June, because I nearly did myself in last trip with heat exhaustion. I had plenty of fluids, but the 100 degree heat with no shade was too much for me. Anyway, the weather on Monday was pretty decent. The heat was bearable. Rain was in the forecast. There was a tropical storm spinning off inland and we were having storms from that. I got ready and drove the 1:20 minutes to my favorite bridge outside of Ladonia. I arrived about 9:00. Rain was predicted to start about 11:00. I didn’t know how bad it would be or how long it would last. So, I figured I had about 2 hours to get some hunting in. Entering the NSR can be a challenge along most of the section of river which was channeled back in the early 1900s. The banks are about 30 feet high and mostly vertical. Normally I enter from the south side of the bridge, but it seems everyone I know who goes there enters from the north side. I thought I’d try that entrance for once. I parked my car along a narrow path next to the guardrail near the bridge. I got out and got my gear ready. Before putting on my pack I walked out to the edge of the precipice of the bank and looked down to the riverbed 30 feet below. To my left was the bridge. I saw a ridiculously steep (80 degrees) path, if you could call it that, plummeting down into the river. I thought “No way! You’ve got to be kidding me!!!” It looked more like a wash and going down it would be more like falling or repelling if I had a rope. There was no way I could come back up that with a 40-50 pound pack. Plus I didn’t have a rope with me. Hum, maybe I need to add rope to my NSR gear list. I am not a rock climbing type girl. I am around a soft 50% marshmallow consistency. There isn’t a whole lot of muscle on me. I am all adventure and no brawn. This is a picture of the river from the top of the bank. IT is not the best pic, but you get the idea that it is a long way down. You can't really see the wash, but it starts behind the pillar on the left and runs behind that bush straight down to the bottom. I turned to walk back to my car and drive over to my usual entrance, but as I turned I saw an opening in the dense undergrowth. I walked towards it. There was a rope tied to a tree at the top of the hill. It was strung downhill and attached to another sapling 20 feet below. It wasn’t much of a rope, less than 1 cm thick with infrequent, small knots of maybe 1 cm in size. They would not be much to grab onto. It would help getting down for sure and it looked strong enough, but man was it steep (60 degreeish)!! It was really steep for about 20 feet or so and then leveled off for a bit and then there was some concrete rubble in the wash that ran along the path. From the level area you had to drop down about 3 feet and then walk the rubble to the riverbed. There was only one sizeable (2 inches) sapling to grab at or break your fall with on the 20 foot part. There were numerous saplings and a poison ivy vine that were ¼- ½ inch thick. There was a rebar type stake sticking up about 8 inches from the ground maybe 5 feet down the hill, I assume for a foothold of sorts. It looked like someone had tried to notch some steps into the hill with a shovel every 3 feet or so, but they were eroded so barely of any use anymore. I think I must be crazy, or ridiculously overdue for an adventure. It has been 3 months since I’d been to the NSR after all. I decided to go ahead and try it. I hoped I would not live to regret my choice. I went and got my pack, which was already about 15 pounds with my 4 pound sledge hammer, rock hammer, drinking fluids, my 40 caliber pistol (protection from wild hogs) and other gear. I put my pack on and walked to the edge of the hill. I took one step and slid. I was wearing tennis shoes with only a little tread. I turned around, went back to my car and put on my hiking boots. I tried going down the hill facing forward, but couldn’t do it. So I turned around and grabbed the rope and wrapped it around my hand and began to lower myself down backwards. In retrospect I can see I clearly did not think my exit strategy out. I will post another part in a couple minutes..

    shark tooth ID (fairly gnarly)

    Greetings, I came across this one tonight and thought it resembles a Goblin shark tooth. Found it in a very congested area of the creek with plenty of small rocks and shale around. Travis county
