  1. Hello, I found this strange rock while digging a post hole about three feet deep. It was found in Fairborn Ohio about a week ago. Image 3 shows white scratches from the hand auger I was using and a layer of something that appears fibrous. Images 1,0, and 4 show the other side and a deep hole and more of the fibrous covering. The stone is about as big as my hand. Could this have been a tooth? Thank you for taking a look at it!

    Help with fossil ID

    Just wondering if anyone recognizes this. I am pretty sure it is a fossil but not sure if it is corral or bone or something different. I don’t have any pics with a tape measure on my phone but can get some tomorrow if it would help. It is roughly the size of my palm. Found in Southern Alberta in an area that has other Bearpaw formation fossils. However I have found other marine fossils here that are clearly not from the Bearpaw formation and are thought to have been brought from further west possibly by glaciers. I also found a rugose corral in the same area. It is concave in the middle
  3. Hello! So I found these three fossils and was curious to know about them... one i think is to be a bryozoan branch the tooth i believe to be a cow tooth not sure how old it may be and the last one is a type of small brachiopod its super tiny but again I don't know much about fossils yet but I am ready to learn more ! So if any one knows anything about these fossils that'd be a great help! First 6 pictures are from the riverbed and the last two are from the beach in Lübeck,Germany Thanks!

    Dino eggs or something else?

    Hi everyone. I would like your opinion of if this is a dinosaur egg or something else, like a Concretion. I found it several years ago about an hour south of Williston North Dakota. I know the area is known for having cannon ball Concretions but it is also known for an area rich with fossils and petrified wood. I have spent countless hours researching and looking through photos of both Dino eggs and Concretions etc. but have never found anything that looks exactly like this. The closest looking thing I have found to it was actually Dino eggs in the natural history museum in New York. I f

    Maybe fossil?

    Hi everyone, Found this rock while on a hike in Spain. It had some odd texture/pattern on it so i brought it with me. Doubt its a fossil but figured someone here would know for sure. Its 10-15cm in length, hard rock and a bit of crystallization in some parts. Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

    Tooth - recent or fossil?

    Hi all I’m new here. My son found today this tooth in a sandy brookside in Switzerland. First I thought it’s from a cow. But then I was searching google pictures and I was confused. Could ist be a fossile? Can someone help? Thank you!

    curious stone, or fossil?

    Hello. I found this some time ago, in an outcrop, of the Upper Cretaceous (Cenomanian). some fragments of belemnite, which seems to me a poorly preserved hedgehog radiola, a solitary coral, (it may be a kind of placosmilia). and a curiously shaped stone, which has me puzzled, and I would like to know what it is. sorry for the photos, but I don't have a good tool to make them better.

    Not sure if this is a fossil?

    hello everyone, I'm a newbie here and with fossils and hoping y'all's experience can help me out...I live in Globe, Az and I find some awesome rocks and minerals...however I know nothing about fossils...I found this HUGE rock last year and everyone that see's thinks it might be fossils? I do know the area was underwater "back in the day"...so we have lots of limestone conglomerates that formed. The first picture is of a oval shape something that might be a fossil... it's roughly 4" by 2" width. It has lots of texture to it. The parts I'm asking about that might be bone fo

    Beach find, fossil?

    Hi, I work at the nature centre on the Isle of Islay. We had a school visit today and a little girl brought in the rock/fossil pictured. She found it on a pebble beach near Bowmore on the Isle of Islay. I had a quick look at our fossil books and couldn't identify it. Apologies for lack of scale, is about 10cm long. Any help much appreciated. Thanks

    Help with id

    Can anyone id this? I would have just wrote it off as a rock if it wasn’t for the hole in the ends. Not sure if it goes right through or not. I can’t blow through it but there is sediment inside the hole. A friend suggested it was maybe a worm burrow. The area I found this in mainly has Bearpaw formation fossils but lately I have been finding older stuff like a rugose coral that was maybe deposited by glacier or river flow from older deposit upstream. If this is some kind of worm burrow cast do you have any suggestion as to the age? Thanks in advance for any insight.
  14. It was found south East Iowa and I assume it’s a fossil not sure does anyone know?

    Unknown WV fossil

    Heres something I found yesterday in a Creek bed at the bottom of Kate's Mountain, in Harts Run which is located in Greenbrier County, West Virginia. Found lots of crinoid columnals, and brachiopod fossils as well, thanks in advance for any information! I apologize for my fossil ignorance but I am having such a great time finding them and learning!
  19. So I gave up on finding spinosaurus claws so I decided to switch carnivores to herbivores and to my surprise I found a lot of beautiful pieces like this and I was wondering if it's genuine or not

    Is this a fossil

    Can someone identify this for me? I think it's a crab claw, but is it a fossil? I found it shelling in St.Andrews state park in Panama city Florida.
  23. I found this one near shore right after big storm here in Long Beach NY- Trying to identify. It has raised skin like bumps and measures: 4 x 5 inches. On the back side embedded with shells and 2 bumps coming through from front side? so a thick skin....? when googled the only thing it matched with was dinosaur skin? I have found many arrow heads and many interesting fossils ones here in the last 2 years, always right along the water/shore. Any thoughts anyone? Thanks!

    Possible fossil primate

    Hi everyone. This is my very first post here. I'm glad the opportunity to discuss a question. I have found a skull that I think is a primate, but first of all I would like to know if it is a fossil or a modern bone skull, but it is a natural material, for sure. It was found at a dense forest near home and it was on ground mixed with leaves and soil material. Obviously I had looked for the mandible even though I was not able to do that. I appreciate any kind of help. So, is it a fossil? What kind of animal specimen would it be? Thanks

    Antler Tine?

    This was found in northern Florida. I thought it was a claw core, as it is definitely not a tooth. However, now I am thinking antler tine. I would love some opinions on if that's correct!
