    Bone? Dinosaur Bone?

    Does this look like a dinosaur bone? Or any kind of bone for that matter? Found in alabama on private property. But near an area where dinosaur bones were discovered. Please help !

    Is this a type of fossil

    Hey guys. Please help and let me know if this is a regular rock or a fossil. If it is a fossil, what kind?? I have fossils that I know for sure are fossils but I'm trying to post the ones I'm not sure about. I appreciate the positive feedback . I found this one in alabama. Thank you.

    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.
  4. 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!

    What kind of fish mouth plate is this?

    Wading in one of the creeks in my neighborhood provided a few small fossils and I found a interesting looking mouth plate. This is a late Pleistocene area, and in the Tampa member of the Arcadia formation, and the other finds I’m wondering is are these alligator scutes or could I be wrong?
  8. I found this in my front yard while raking. I live on the outskirts of Fresno, Ca. Can anyone tell me what it is? I have found other, what looks to me, like bones.
  9. I’m a fisherman and I’ve just done a trip on a Beamer trawler. We were fishing 20 miles south of lizard point in Cornwall and caught this in one tow. The skipper and his father both said they’ve seen this before but it’s not common, neither knew what it is exactly. It was in one lump but my fellow crewmen hit it with a rail pin and it split. Can anyone tell me what it is? It’s very pretty and I can see loads of inclusions when I hold fragments up to the light. It also smells strongly of pine.

    Two Fossils or Two Rocks?

    I found these rocks outside of my house, in gravel. I'm not sure what they are but both their shapes are interesting, so I thought they could both be a fossil. I think the 'crescent' rock could be a fossil burrow or gastropod cast, but I'm no expert. I'm not totally sure what the other one is though, but it looks like rocks cemented together. And sorry for the bad photo quality...this the best quality I can get on my phone unfortunately. Does anyone know what these are?

    Vertebrate? ID: Cattle or Bison

    Found this in the bottom of a river bank the other day and was wondering what it was. It was buried pretty deep in the bank, but the river has moved a lot in the past decade and had been grazed by cattle since the 1930s. Watonwan River. Cottonwood County, Minnesota

    Found in PaleoPack

    Found this in our PaleoPack. Looks like it could be something but maybe not.

    Fossil or not?

    Hello, This was found today in the highlands of Scotland I wondered if anyone could give any advice on what it is? I’m very new to this so any advice is appreciated! thank you in advance. Kerry :)
  14. My question is how does one tell when something is fossilized, or is a fossil? I know some things just look like they are "fossilized", but what about things like clams or shells? I found myself wondering this while watching one of Paleo Cris' videos. I can't see any difference between a modern shell and the shells he finds in Florida. Maybe it's a touch type of thing. Any information would be appreciated!

    Fossil? Vert

    Hi all, I found this bone on the beach today and wanted your guys thoughts. I really didn’t think it was fossilized, but I did the burn test anyway to be sure, and there is no burning hair smell. What are your guys thoughts? It was found in New Jersey, on a beach where I have found a couple shark teeth(4 or 5) including a Great White and a couple sand tigers. I think it’s a worn vertebrae, but I don’t know beyond that. When I get home I can get measurements, but I’d guess ~1-1.5” by ~1”. @Praefectus @Al Dente @MarcoSr @Darktooth @hokietech96 @Trevor @frankh8147

    Is this poop?

    These are also from Calvert Cliffs (Maryland). I’m not sure if they’re just rocks or poop.

    Just a concretion?

    I know this is a concretion (found in Colorado) but fossils can sometimes be in concretions. I thought it looked interesting so I decided to ask about it here. Correct me if I’m wrong but the outside looks like sandstone, what could the inside be?

    Burlington Formation fossil ID

    Hey all, when I was out fossil hunting today in the Burlington Formation, I found this odd little thing. I'm pretty confident it's a fossil, but I'm really not quite sure what it is. I really don't even know where to guess on this, any ideas?

    Weird stone found in North Spain

    Hi, This is my first post, so I hope I follow all the guidelines... If not, please let me know! This stone was found recently in North Spain, in Leon, near the village of La Magdalena. It was in the top of a mountain, surrounded by marine fossils. I have no idea if it is a stone or a fossil but it is a very weird stone. If you have any idea of what it could be, just let me know! Thank you.

    Tooth from Southern Sweden

    Hi, My son has found this tooth when we went swimming in the Baltic Sea (exact location : Löderups Strandbads Camping , Southern Sweden). Appreciate if someone can tell us what this could be as he's very happy to have found it. Cheers!
