    Mazon creek blob ID

    I have some old nodules I am going through from a box, I busted this one open I am still learning the fossils inside. Is this one a blob of mineral formation or something else? My tape is being held up elsewhere so used different currency for ref.

    Mazon Creek fossil ID

    I'll be posting here slowly as my freeze/thaw of about 100 concretions goes, as long as there's fossils that I'm unable to identify on my own. Curious what yall may think this is? Looks like a small creature of some sort or maybe just coprolite but I've got no idea. Any help is appreciated!
  3. Found this the other day in Garfield County. About 2 cm long. Not sure what it's from
  4. Rockwood

    Cone shaped

    Found in gravel of a small creek bed on the North end of Cleburne Texas. Is this a fossil? Texas rule maybe? On the other hand, I can almost imagine a hammer drill leaving something like this behind.

    South Carolina mammal ankle?

    I found this bone a while back in a summerville creek. It was poking out with some clay I was thinking its a mammal bone like maybe an ankle so I was wondering if anyone knows what part of the animal its from or what animal its from?

    Mazon Creek fossil ID please!

    Hi, I have this Mazon Creek concretion that actually cracked open before I started the freeze/thaw with the rest. I was wondering what it may be? Looks like some sort of worm but I'd like to confirm. Thanks!

    Bison in pa?

    Hello everyone! I am looking for help with a possible id on these bones I have found recently in the Pittsburgh area of Pa. They were all found in a creek bed with a lot of exposed rock after the amount of rain we got in the spring. All bones were found in a 20 foot square radius. Thank you for any help! I did a hot pin test, and it did not burn through at all..
  8. This is my first time on a fossil forum. My home is in NOVA, which has two creeks full of fossils. I am hoping that the group can assist with identifying the two fossils I found recently. One resembles a bird skull with a crystal formation, and the other fossil resembles a jawbone with teeth (possibly human). Thanks in advance for your feedback!

    Gainesville shark tooth

    I found this tooth a while back in a Gainesville creek. Im fairly certain it's a tiger shark tooth but im curious if it could be a symphyseal tooth because of the weird shape or if it could have been swallowed by the shark because of its texture. Wondering if anyone knows any more details.

    Indian necklace piece

    I found this a while back in a Summerville creek, theres a hole in this bone piece that appears it could be from an Indian making some sort of jewelry not entirely sure though so I was wondering if anyone could give a second opinion.
  11. Going to be collecting for about 5 days next month and my previous large backpack ripped recently. I didnt really like the pack I had and would like some brand and/or size recommendations
  12. A couple of my finds walking a creek in Southeast Ohio.

    Possible dino head

    I need some kind of opinion on this piece. . I am not sure what it is . All I know is I have cleaned off most of the sediment. And this is what I have . It came out of a creek bottom . side view
  14. So to piggy back on my ID post, I did a door knock and got permission to dig in a creek on an expansive cattle farm, this was a trip just to scope out the lay of the creek using my 👀 and it totally didn't disappoint. Deer Pedicle Tooth/Frag of unknown origin Fish Vert perhaps? Creek worn Horse tooth Holmesina scutes? Broken posterior meg Honker of a puffer plate

    Mazon creek iridescence

    I had a nodule that I picked up at pit 11 a couple of weeks ago split open, however basically everything about it has me stumped. There are tiny dark speks that are iridescent, some turn blue, others green and one of them pink with different light angles. Are these bits opalized? I'd like to know before doing anything else to prep it since opal can be sensitive to moisture. I've heard of iridescence in a lingula specimen, but other than that I'm unfamiliar with any mazon material having iridescence, and I'm wondering how that could happen inside a concretion. Furthermore any ideas what it is? random plant matter? coprolite? blank with mineralization?

    Shiny golden rock

    Hello, my little brother found this a couple years ago in a nearby creek. There is something golden and shiny in this rock. I dont know if its pyrite, or real gold tho. And I also dont know, if any of that is even known from northern germany. Any help appreciated ! (the colors might look a bit different in the photos than in real life, but its really golden)

    Teeth from a theropod, hell creek

    Hello, I saw these teeth for online today and they were listed as "T-Rex". And because they're so cheap compared to T-Rex teeth, I wondered if they really are, and if they turn out as Rex, I think on buying one. The teeth are just about 1 cm in length, so quite small for a Rex. Must have been a very young individual, or a Nanotyrannus instead. Sadly there were no centered pictures from the bottom cross section that could help identifying them. And sadly, the exact finding location and county wasn't named, location was just listed as "Hell Creek". But there were plenty of Tyrannosaurs found in this formation. So I doubt its still identifiable. But any help and ideas are appreciated !

    South Carolina creek bone

    Hoping there's enough of this bone to ID. I'm 95% sure it's old, either Pleistocene or Oligocene (Chandler Bridge), based on the stratigraphy. The preservation looks similar to articulated Chandler Bridge material (white outside, reddish interior), which would imply marine. Not certain about that though.

    Bivalve ?

    Found in a creek bed on the north side of Cleburne, Texas. It had recently fallen from a bedrock exposure. About the only guess I can come up with is large thin shelled bivalve. Am I even close?
  20. Has anyone ever been fossil hunting in oak creek near peace river in Hardee county fl. Thinking about going down there to scout wondering if anyone has ever been down there? Thanks

    Shark tooth ID

    Found both these teeth near the peace river i've never found this kind of tooth shape. Im pretty sure its a type of mako but was wondering if anyone could an ID it or give any type of information.
  23. Michael1

    Mako shark Id?

    Found this tooth near the peace river it looks like a hastalis tooth but the root is very wide and its much more girther than any other hastalis tooth ive ever found. One of my friends told me it could be a transitional fossil but I was hoping for more opinions on it.
