  1. Not sure if it matters where it came from but just in case, was in a mix of QAL and Eagle Ford. Thought it was bone when I picked it up but it felt funny like plastic and weighed nothing. Figured it would float but didn't, thought surely it would melt with flame but didn't, and no smell. I've shown it with piece of worn bone for comparison, but I'm still perplexed. What else could it be? Last picture is the bone.

    Bones in TX

    Found some bones sticking out of the creek bank in Central TX. Area has confirmed Mastodon remains. Tusks and a tooth all found within 1/4 mile of this site. Bones are 12 feet below the top of the bank. I did a little digging around today to get a feel for what it could be. It appears it could be a large pelvis bone (4-5 feet wide). I also found a small bone that appears to be from the foot/toes etc. Not really sure how I should proceed. Is there any educational value in this type of bones? Who would one contact to ask? I am sure Mastodon bones are fairly common.

    Sperm Whale Tooth

    Hi guys, I know this isn’t necessarily an identification post as I’m quite sure this tooth belonged to a sperm whale. However, I have done a lot of research on other areas of Florida paleontology yet I don’t know much about ancient sperm whales or their teeth at all. I’m having trouble finding more info. I was wondering if this tooth (found in a creek close to where I live on the gulf coast of Florida) is particularly large for a sperm whale, or is this the standard size? Are they rare or difficult to find? This tooth was lying underneath the top layer of gravel alongside half of a 5 inch

    Mississippi creek jaw

    Found in a NE Mississippi creek. I’m usually in Montana, so have no clue what this could be. Seems a bit older than modern, but obviously not crazy old. Thoughts?

    Turtle coprolite?

    This is from mix of Eagle Ford and Alluvium, had it for awhile but just ran across pictures of turtle coprolite and thought it fit, right size, shape and colors I've seen. Also weighs light. Knowing my luck it's geological but that's ok it's very interesting. I snuck in another one I suspect is coprolite

    Mystery Femur

    Found this in a creek off of peace river, way way out. It’s not fossilized but it is old for sure. It appears to be a femur of some sort, but I can’t figure out what it belongs to? It is 9 inches long.

    Fossilized raindrops?

    This dolomite stone was discovered near Chasm Creek, central Arizona. It appears to have the fossilized impressions of raindrops splashing into a fine muddy surface. The stone seems to be dolomitic, as HCl causes a low fizz, unlike typical limestone's more energetic fizzing. Most of the "splashes" have the central "rebound" splash seen in my high-speed imagery of water droplets. That central rebound appears to have been broken off over time. Does my assumption that this is a somehow frozen-in-time rain shower make sense?
  8. Hi all, I found this fossil in a creek near St. Louis. Any ideas?

    What is this?

    I found this in a creek in Apopka Florida any one know if this is a fossil or modern it’s pretty heavy for its size does anyone know what it is?
  10. Found in creek in Silex, MO. I find many formations like this around the area. Fossil or geological? Each hole is about 2cm in diameter.

    Unusual shape of ?

    This rock stood out because of its unique shape and consistent thickness. Thoughts?
  12. From what I've learned crinoids aren't from around here, prob from way upstream fill rock. Here being Dallas creekbed in Eagle Ford shale. Its so unique with the patterns, almost looks carved, just guessing part of a crinoid because of the cylinder shape. What the heck is it?
  13. Found this on gravel bank in creek close to DFW, in a narrow band of Alluvium smack dab in middle of Fluviatile terrace deposits. I'm not sure what to make of it, appreciate input!
  14. Hey y'all Recently I took a look around a creek in Austin hoping for some shark teeth (side note - if you have any advice for finding them in the area please either comment or send me a personal message, I've had no luck yet!) The formations in the area are supposed to be cretaceous - I'm far too new to be able to differentiate their appearances, but I've heard the Dessau gets exposed. Many enormous exogyra were present. One thing I did find however was a shiny orange chip with vertical wrinkling that looks suspiciously like enamel from a mammal tooth, but it has t

    Waxahachie Tx ???

    Hey Everyone, Changed from NSR for awhile. Went with a buddy to Waco. Found some nice things. Want to go out with my sister to somewhere near Waxahachie. Anyone have a good creek they are willing to share? You can PM me if you want. I will keep the secret spot.

    Swiss cheese rock

    Hey guys! so I recently went looking in an old local creek for arrowheads and came across a grapefruit sized clay rock. (Assuming it was clay due to the clay in the area) once I busted it open I got many voids and very small round objects. Any help will be much appreciated!!
  18. These tiny fossils I suspect of being Receptaculites, but I'm not at all sure. The patch is about 12x12mm, about the size of a dime. It's on Martin formation dolomite from the Devonian, Verde Valley, Arizona. Other fossils on the same rock include Rugose and Tabulate corals and unidentified Brachiopods. Note the lichens growing in and on the sample. Any ideas?
  19. I believe this is a Bryozoan. It is about 14x16mm (about the size of a dime), and is on Martin formation Devonian dolomite from the Verde Valley in Arizona. Any opinions will be appreciated!

    Fossil hunting after rainfall

    Yesterday we had heavy rainfall in Charleston. Rainfall is of course one of the natural elements that erodes the material surrounding fossils. We know that some fossils become exposed to the earths surface due to rain. In Charleston, good areas to search after a hard rain are shores, river edges, creeks, gravel beds, and excavation sites. Dredge piles are also good search areas. There is a particular area on Folly Beach which has a significant amount of dredge material. It would be a good area to search today or tomorrow at low tide. I suggest you search here between 10am and 2pm (low tide). T

    Think its a bone

    Hi, thanks in advance. Found near st Louis in illinois. It seems to have hematite or iron coating. I also collect bones and that sure looks like a fossilized bone. Really lightweight.

    Has anyone tried Shell Creek?

    Just curious if anyone has tried hunting for fossils on Shell Creek in Punta Gorda! Not shell fossils It’s pretty close to me but I’ve heard mixed reviews on it.
  24. Hello! Im new to the Houston area Moved down from Virginia Beach, where fossilized shark, stingray teeth are common. Decided to walk along local creek found lots of interesting old bottles, pottery fragments, fossilized wood and shells, eventually came along three large fossilized bone fragments and one interesting partial fossil. The only fossils I’m familiar with are the shark teeth exc. common to my area help identifying these and knowledge on other common local fossils is much appreciated.

    ID Help - Possible Coral

    This was found on October 9, 2020 in a creek bed in Warrenton, MO. It is about 6cm x 7cm. I am no scientist and I have no idea how to identify what we found. This website was introduced to be by one of the science teachers at the high school where I teach. Any help is appreciated. Thank you.
