    Fossil bone fragment?

    I found this in a creekbed. The creek has cut down into a deep layer of clay about 40 feet and lots of interesting things are falling out of the clay. To me it looks like it could be part of a mouth with tooth sockets.

    What do I have? Please Help ID.

    Found near the city of Kamensk, Rostov region
  3. So i found these fossils and im dying to know what they are! Can anyone help! I found them in smooth round stream river looking rocks(pic of the type rock im finding them inside included, thought it might help with id) that are lining are drainage ditch at a gas station. That first one resembles a hornets face so much! But as the rock its inside has seashell fossils inside it too thats probably highly unlikely. Ive been an avid gem collector and rock hound for a very long time. I know alot about crystals and minerals, plan to get my gemology degree from GIA eventually. But I know n

    Any ideas what this could be?

    Found this near a lake in polk county Wisconsin. There seems to be a somewhat unusual pattern on it. Can anybody identify this? I can get more photos and dimensions if needed. Thanks a bunch!
  5. Hi. I have a number of beautiful goniatite that were found in east Co.Sligo, Ireland. This is near an area in Leitrim that is abundant in nuirian goniatites. Can anyone ID this spieces, I'd be very grateful Here is some more photos.
  6. I found an abundance of these small similar shape and size objects in Post Oak Creek in North Texas. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
  7. Hi, A couple of months ago I found this egg like fossil/stone. Location: Doesburg Holland, most likely Pleistocene deposit layer, exposed due to sand mining The shape is symmetrical, and tapert, with crack lines, and small cracked bits. The outer surface looks layerd and even thickness. Furthermore, it looks like a bone/teeth line is near the surface/is penetrating it. I've attached a series of photos and a 3d model scan. Reference size is 10 eurocent. What do you guys think? Merci Gr J
  8. I know I'm not the only one that doesn't live near good fossil deposits, which means that i'm not the only one that has to buy or trade fossils from time to time to build the collection. I thought it would be fun to have an ongoing thread to share our latest great score that we didn't personally find in nature, a thread to share your latest fossil purchase or trade. Let's see what you found at the local fossil show, online or anywhere else other than in the ground.

    Shark teeth ID, Texas

    I found about 20 shark teeth in a creek in North Texas, and I’m having some trouble IDing the teeth in the attached photo. They are about 1” in length. Mako or maybe a White Shark? Any help is greatly appreciated.
  13. Told these are dinosaur eggs. I'm in AZ. Look legit? Any ideas of their species? Thanks!
  14. Allosaurus

    Utah Vertebrae

    So I sorta impulse purchased these 4 little vertebrae from a rock shop (they were cheap, and looked like nice teaching specimens). They are from Utah, but have no further provenance than that. I am fully aware that complete identification of them is impossible without locality, but it would be great to even just get them down to a family. And heck if someone might have an idea on what formation they could have come from I'm all ears.
  15. Finnlfc19

    What are these markings?

    Just been sent this photo by a friend in Whitby, UK, any ideas what it could be?
  16. Top Trilo

    Top Trilo’s drawings

    Decided I would make a thread with my drawings, recently I decided to draw trilobites that are not necessarily proportional and I didn’t spend too much time on these just wanted them to be life size and recognizable, so far I have 19, I took ideas from @Kane trilobite drawings and @rew trilobite collection. I will add to this thread as I draw more fossils not only trilobites. You may not be able to read the labels partly from camera quality and mostly from my handwriting.

    A fossil hunt in Taiwan

    Finding info on where to find fossils is hard in Taiwan, so I haven't been able to really go. But I made a friend who said he would take me, and this Sunday he did. Plan was to go to a place where you can find shark and fish teeth and rare whale fossils---but it was inaccessible because of the typhoon over the weekend which flooded the area. So, went to Plan B--an area where you can find sea urchin fossils. Unfortunately, the vast majority are only partial pieces, and that is all I found. But some nice partial pieces with nice patterns and colors on them. Plus, I did find SOMETHING, so it stan
  19. Caroboneferous

    Cylinder / rod shaped fossil

    I found this weird fossil, it was sticking out of a large Boulder of limestone, I removed it. I can’t really make sense of it? Carboniferous fossils were found in the area, this was found on the Missouri River just outside Kansas City.
  20. Caroboneferous

    Plant Fossil?

    Found this piece next to a deposit of Carboniferous fossils in Kansas City. It was found next to a shale deposit that had plant fossils. I’m just curious what it is? Plant fossil? Something else? pictures attached:
  21. Caroboneferous

    Broken shell?

    I found this in Kansas City area. It was close to some Carboniferous fossils. I’m not sure exactly what I’m looking at here, are these broken shell fragments? Plants?
  22. Hi everyone this is Matt again. Today in the creek, I found this big rock with a great looking fossil sponge/coral in it. I some how got lucky when I hit it with my hand sledge hammer , when the fossil coral/sponge came out complete from the rock. Here are 2 photos:
  23. Hello. I was lucky to find a few samples of the Carboniferous period; I found them interesting. The first photo is probably a Lepidostrobus. I ask you to confirm or refute this guess, as well as help with the determination of the rest of the samples. Thank you! Have a nice evening
  24. I thought this looked like a tooth crown, but there is nothing but the crown if that is what it is. Might well be something else. Found on a beach near Fort Pierce. About 3/4 inches square. Not so high. Thanks for your help.
  25. fpfossils

    Fossil Tooth From Florida Beach.

    Found this tooth on a beach near Fort Pierce Florida. It is almost exactly one inch long across the crown and 3/8 inch wide. The width is very irregular as you can see. Thanks for your help.
