    Fossilized horse or cow molar?

    I found this in very shallow water on San Jose Island in Port Aransas, Texas, USA. It is very hard and heavy like a rock. It is a little over an inch wide and about an inch tall. I’m pretty sure it is fossilized. I found similar images online that look like a horse or cow molar. Any help in identifying would be appreciated! Thanks!!

    ID Help - College Station, Texas

    We have a creek on our property on the outskirts on College Station, TX. We have plenty of petrified wood that we collect off the property, but my son found this one this morning. I would love some help in determining if we might have found a fossilized bone. Young man at Brazos County Natural History Museum said he thought it was petrified wood that might have lightning strike scarring. Either way, super interesting piece for us. Thanks everyone! Summary: Found in creek bottom after heavy rains this year by my 4yo son. Probably petrified wood but maybe fossilized bone?

    Fossil id

    I've used my AI on my phone several times and it says this is a dino fossil possible petrified. It also says on some that it could be from a t-rex. I was wrong about the rock type. It's agatized. As well as the other pic I posted. We've found lots of blue oil shale, churt , and quartz. Maybe someone could help me identify the several pieces I've found. The area has sink holes and cave systems. Recently as a month ago they found oil bout 3 miles from the he location. VID_20240602_200508962.mp4
  7. Hi there, I found this in Fannin county, Texas and it is fossilized but not quite sure what it is. It looks to me like the start of a pinecone. Any help with ID would be very helpful. Thank you Jim

    Help identifying ?

    I found this at my Grandfather's Farm right after They had A Excavator there that they were using to create a one acre pond. It's located in southwestern Ohio. There were lots of other fossils In that area as well, I've just never seen any that resemble a frog head quite like that. I would love to have some information about it. If anybody could help that would be greatly appreciated ! Thanks!

    Am I broody?

    Hi , my name is Audrey and I'm a newbie to the group, I love looking for fossils and rocks and artifacts. I am excited to find this group, this is the first group I've ever joined. I found this fossil close to my mom and dad's farm in East Tennessee. I think it looks like a raptor egg from what I have viewed online. I am a semi retired librarian with a fossil hunting Savannah cat (who loves to sniff old stuff) I am excited to learn more about the items I find. Thank you very much
  10. I found this small jaw on the kaw river and I can't seem to find an id on it. Thank you for your help beforehand!
  11. Can you keep fossils found along the west branch of the susquehanna River in Pennsylvania?
  12. Jlark18


    Found this specimen in a dry riverbed near Holden Utah. There are many circular and oval like depressions throughout. Looks similar to pine cone shape and indentations or stigmaria roots. Any thoughts? Cheers. Appx. 3.5” x 4.5” @ 1.5lb

    Is this an egg?

    I found this in Southgate Michigan that's where I live I have an alley in the back and I found quite a few interesting pieces I believe one is a nest with the ones living things still inside of it and then the other is an egg which I believe the one swimming thing is still inside of it

    A novice at work

    I have many different types of fossils. I am so new to fossils so I am requesting help identifying a few of these finds. All of these were found in El Paso County, Colorado.

    Edisto beach, South Carolina.
  17. Hello 👋 I am so happy to have found this forum! I have already gleaned some excellent I formation and look forward to more. I am an avid researcher. If my interest in something, in ANYTHING is piqued, I have to KNOW all there is to know about that particular subject. A blessing and a curse. My curiosity is rarely, if ever, fully satisfied. I have been told by many, many experts that several of the things I have been finding recently are absolutely NOT in Southeast Kentucky amd I MUST be mistaken. Ummm... I live in Southeast Kentucky and most (99%) of what I have found in the past several months has been from an area within 10 miles of my home. So, what am I missing? Only so much can be explained through the occasional drop or glacial deposits. Just in the past 24 hours I have found over 30 small geodes! All between 1 inch and 4 inches in diameter. All within 30 yards of each other. NOT in or near water. Also found were bits of agate, small agate nodules, crinoids, crinoid crusted geodes, loads of Rugose (horn) coral, etc...

    West Viginia petrified wood

    I was visiting a friend in West Virginia who is preparing his property for building his home. It's just south of Charleston. I noticed what I think is a layer of petrified wood. Not sure though. Any information would help. There were also petrified nuts.

    Fossilized (or not?) Sea urchin

    Dear friends, please advise. I found this sea urchin today, it looks like a petrified one. But it us very light, feels like wooden, and it floats. I found a fossilized sea urchin not so long ago, but that one is much heavier. So could you please advise, if this one is petrified, or what could happen with it? Thank you!
