  1. These are found among river stones that yield a lot of crinoid fragments and worm traces. Any idea would be appreciated as the leaf-shapes are funky!!

    What are these?

    Hello, I need help identifying some of these fossil. I am not even sure if they are all fossil but they look like they should be. They are from one of the paleo packs that paleo Chris sells.
  3. Hi, I bought this at a flea market in McKinney, TX about 8 years ago and am trying to get it identified. The person selling it didn’t have any information on where it was found or what it is. I took it to a local rock shop recently to see if it could be ID’d. The owner is more skilled in minerals, but he thought it might be a fossil (stromatolite), and recommended I reach out to someone skilled in fossils to know for sure. Magnets do not stick to it at all. I found a small seashell attached to it, but nothing else on the outside. It’s a rounded triangular shape. Measures about 8 1/2” (32

    South Jersey Creek Find

    Hey all, I found this in a South Jersey creek gravel bed. The particular spot is in the Navesink bedrock formation, but I'm unsure of how exposed it is (if at all.) I haven't found much in the way of fossils in this particular spot except a possible burrow and a possible oyster shell. I initially thought it was an odd looking concretion, but I cleaned it up and had second thoughts. It's extremely porous (passed the tongue test), which made me think bone. It's also very heavy. Please let me know if more pictures or information would help. Thank you in advance!

    Unknown fossil

    Hi All Fairly new to this. I went fossil hunting with my boy on a beach known for carboniferous fossils. We found a ton of brachiopod specimens but also found this. It may be another brachiopod specimen as there is also a brach mold fossil on the other side. But wondered if it might be something different? If its even a fossil at all.

    Unknown Trilobite

    Found this fossil online, but its labeled as an unidentified trilobite. Does anyone know what this is?
  7. So, I'm not sure where this rock is from or when, there is cretaceous to Precambrian rock in the area and it's all buried under glacial debris. I've been removing this thing from the rock, the other pictures may be clues as to what this is?
  8. Hello everyone! I'm new here and new to fossil everything and learning as much as I can. I may have found my first trilobite and I have ideas of what it could be but not good at all with the process of identification or how it is oriented on/in the matrix. There are faint lines around the entire piece that seems to be other trilobites/parts. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks for looking! Please excuse any mistakes this is also my first time ever posting on a forum.

    Hello from Peru

    Hi, Mi names is José. I from Piura, a city in the northwestern cost of peru. Together with my friend we find this shark teeth fossil in marine terreins of upper miocene - pliocene in Sechura basin, very similar to Pisco Basin (that may be better known to you). We need help to identify this teeth and others too ( https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1F6O3ql4zvtRnShPd0ZoOVWJ6tPbOimgr?usp=sharing ) Y1_50 3 --> Isistius triangulus ¿? Y2_328 --> Carcharocles Megalodon ¿? Y1_305 --> Carcharhinus sp ¿? Thanks and sorry for my bad inglish grammar.
  10. Hello everyone, I apologise in advance for the lower quality photos, my phone is quite old and the camera is going. Anyways, I was down in Cape May this past weekend and I decided to beach comb on sunset beach. i found several interesting items, and I was wondering if I can get some input regarding what they are. The first two images seem to be a similar type of fossil (if it is one). I am wondering if it could potentially be Paleozoic (if anything?). However, I am not sure exactly what it is, nor the material that it is made of. The third image I think co

    Unknown Trilo

    I bought this trilobite from a small rock shop many years ago, and completely forgot about it until i opened up some old boxes in my house. No idea what kind of trilo it is, or if its even real or not. Can anyone ID this little guy?

    Is this a fossil?

    Hi all. I'm new here. But not new to fossil collection. I usually comb around Lyme Regis on long weekends away. I live in south west Wales and spotted this along the east straight of Penarth. This is a usual spot for fossils. Can anyone please tell me what they think it may be please. Thanks so much

    Black Glassy Bone Shape

    Hello everybody. I was a geologist in a previous life (Liverpool University 1999) and had never really found anything interesting. I was picking some oversized from a clay lining system we are deploying and came across this oddly shaped rock. On inspection it looked very glassy, almost like chert would inside. But the shape looks so much like a joint I wondered if it might be a fossil. The bulbous end is very pitted which reminds me of bone, but where it has broken it is very polished. The clay is (was) an alluvium deposit from Cardiff area (river Taff)

    I'm not sure what I found?

    This weekend while near La Plata Missouri, I was looking through a pile of rocks brought in for the driveway and I found some interesting things (at least they are to me!). But I am not sure what I am looking at, or it it is simply nothing at all. So I am wondering if anyone would be able to shed some light on what I found? If they do turn out to be something I have a few more photos to show, thank you!

    France Fossil ID

    A guy that I work with in France brought some fossils to work one day that his grandfather had passed down. He was wondering what they are. I told him I could post them on here and try find out. He said they were probably all found in the area northwest of Bordeaux by his grandfather many years ago. Some where around Royan. #1 #2 #3 #4

    Southern Alberta fossil I.D.

    Found this on an outcropping in southern Alberta with various other dinosaur fragments. Never seen this before not sure what it could be. Any suggestions would be appreciated

    What are these teeth?

    Found at Dauphin Island, Alabama. I found both washed up on the ocean’s shore The light gray tooth is 4.6 cm tall,4.5 cm at it’s widest, and 3.8 cm at it’s base. The dark gray tooth is 5.6 cm tall, 3.3 cm at it’s widest, and 3.5 cm at it’s base.
  19. After a 3 month dedicated search (coughSisyphean) to figure this out on my own, I still can’t find anything that remotely looks like this. I’m a longtime SE LA/SW MS creek gravel rockhounder and I’ve never come across this before. I’ve shown it to some other area collectors-no luck. This was found in a creek running through the upper terraces of the (pre-loess) La Citronelle formation not far from the Amite County, MS border. *I should also mention that Louisiana gravels within the (Plio) Citronelle contain much older rocks/fossils that are believed to have been transported by glac
  20. Found this while hunting for fossils along the Credit River in Mississauga, ON (Canada). I'm completely new to fossil hunting so I'm unable to identify this! I thought it looked pretty neat so I picked it up and took it home. It's heavy and about 10cm across and about 8cm tall. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Interesting mineral that may be a fossil

    A few days ago I found this rock in northern Israel. At first I saw the part you see in the first picture but then I saw an interesting mineral in it, so I used the advanced tool of another rock to open a part of the rock and I found that the black mineral in it has an interesting shape. So i would love to hear any idea about this rock, are there fossils in there? What kind of rock is it?

    Is this a fossil?

    Hi everyone, I'm new to the group. I'm wondering if the enclosed pictures are of a fossil. Found it on my land a while ago but have now only realised that it could be a fossil. Thank you,

    Wisconsin Fossil

    A while back I found this fossil in Wisconsin, unfortunately I don't remember where exactly I was when I found it. So far I have been unable to easily identify it. It is about 2 inches across, and about an inch tall. I can post more pictures if needed.
  24. I found this very complete snail/mollusk looking fossil, it’s the first time I’ve seen the shell and body shape of a snail type organism preserved equally well in a fossil I’ve found- can anyone help tell me what organism it is specifically and from what time period? I found it in Southampton, Ontario in my rock garden, so I don’t know whether the rocks from the rock garden are from a quarry or the shores of Lake Huron (I would guess they’re from Lake Huron, but I don’t know). Thanks for your help, I’ve been holding onto this for years and always been curious as to what it is!
  25. Hey Folks, My 5 year old son found this close to home. It’s about the size of a small fingernail, and appears to be only a half shape, if that makes any sense? The object does not appear to continue beneath the matrix. Any idea what it might be? Thanks, E&B
