  1. This in my eyes is fossilized coral. But I'm trying find out what kind? It has crystals on the inside.
  2. Greetings fossil lovers, hunters, and/or experts. I read the newbie advisories and understand what they spell out. I am a member of other hobby groups, and therefore understand the frustrations presented by dealing with "drive-by" posters. That said, I may qualify as such a poster, as I am not a fossil hunter. I am, however, a person who is interested in different things, most of them antiquities of various types. Machines for the telling of time, aka watches, are but one of them. I am quite ignorant when it comes to fossils, archeology, anthropology, etc. But I am known to possess good instin

    Bone? Tooth? Something else?

    Hi everyone, yesterday I was hunting for sharks teeth on the beaches of Wilmington, North Carolina, when I found this. It's very heavy and definitely fossilized, but it doesn't really look like most of the whale bone I'm used to seeing. The piece slightly curves and has ridges down the length of it. It's about 2 inches long, 1 inch wide, and a half inch thick. Any kind of information would be greatly appreciated!

    This looks like a vertebra but not sure

    I found this on the Frio river bed by Uvalde, Tx and it looks like a vertabra of some kind. Rather large and it has the common shape and segments. Here’s a picture

    Are these human teeth?

    Are either of these possibly human molars? If so, would they be recent, Native American, or perhaps older? If not, what do you think they are? They were found on the Potomac river, in Purse State Park, in southern MD on separate trips about a year apart.

    What made this footprint?

    Hi! My friend went to a museum and sent me a picture of this fossilized footprint. He said that they don't know what it is from. Does anyone have an idea?

    Phalanx from what?

    Hello, I found this fossilized bone while walking down by the river in Missouri. In doing some research it looks like it could be a metatarsal bone. It seems hard to identify what animal the bone could be from. I took several photos but due to size restrictions I am going to post one and then see if I can post the others to my original reply. Do you know what the bone could be from or how old it may be? It is the first fossilized bone I have found so I appreciate any help. Thank You!

    Fossilized bone ID or speculation

    Found in my yard about 2 miles from the coast. I live in Charleston SC. https://www.flickr.com/photos/14372793@N02/albums/72157688823647345
  9. I found this specimen on a beach in northern michigan. It was found along with sea shell fossils and petaskys.

    One More: fossilized poop?

    This is one more item that I found in Arkansas. Maybe I just have a big imagination, but could this be fossilized scat? I saw similar photos online and the person who posted it called it "turtle poop". I would appreciate any other suggestions as to what it could be. Thanks!

    Dinosaur Egg Fossil?

    I was in Arkansas when I found this unusual rock/fossil. I thought this was a geode of some sort until I saw what appears to be bones in the center. It is exactly how I found it; I did not break it open...it was this nearly perfect, half-shell shape when I picked it up. I have a microscope that attaches to my iPhone so I have attempted to give you a good view of what I am calling "bones". If any of you have suggestions as to what it might be, please let me know. Thank you!

    Fossilized honeycomb?

    Hello! My kids found this today in our church parking lot. It looks just like honeycomb and the stone it is in is very sparkly. Could it be fossilized honeycomb?
  13. I'm not sure if the tooth is real or fake, but the website claims to have authenticity in all their products. I just want to make sure. Please help and tell me how you can tell if it's legitimate or not! Thanks.
  14. http://www.iflscience.com/plants-and-animals/ancient-monkey-blood-found-fossilized-in-amber/ For the first time, fossilized mammal blood, probably from a 20 to 30 million-year-old monkey, has been found in amber. Ok, it's not quite Jurassic Park, but OligocenePark would probably be safer. In the meantime, we're learning about the evolution of parasites, and maybe something about primate development as well. Emeritus Professor George Poinar, who proposed the idea of resurrecting extinct creatures from DNA in amber, has produced some astonishing discoveries lately, including ins

    Fossil ID Please!

    Could this be a fossilized/petrified moth? I found it while beachcombing on The Bolivar Peninsula in Texas just the other day. Thanks in advance.
  16. Found yesterday in Peace River. I think it is a fossilized deer jaw but not sure. I did the tongue stick test - but it didn't seem sticky. I didn't do the match test because I didn't know how long you had to wait for it to dry out. What do you all think?

    Fossilized bone?

    Hello, I was wondering if anyone could identify this find I made. I live in the Uckermarck region of Germany where the landscape has been formed by Glaciers. ( In the Ice Age, glaciers shaped the landscape of the region. A climate change left a hilly area with several lakes formed by the melting ice, and humans started to settle the area. Megalithic-cultures arose, followed by Germanic cultures. WIKIPEDIA) At first I thought it was just a piece of metal when it came out of the soil as I came across it metal detecting but once it was cleaned (washed with water) it turne

    Help me ID this "rock"

    I found this many years ago as a child on a beach, either in Florida or North/South Carolina, but I'm not 100% certain. I always assumed it was maybe fossilized poop of some sort, or maybe even fossilized coral. The "rock" is very dense, can scratch almost anything(note glass), and is maybe .5-2lbs. I have dropped it onto concrete from approx. 3-5ft, and it chipped the concrete, and I at least noticed no changes to the "rock". No odor, not even when I originally found it. Non-magnetic. One Side of this "rock" appears to have a crystal-like structure/pattern, but go

    Interesting Idaho Fossilized Bone?

    Can anyone confirm if the is fossilized bone or simple an unusual stone? I am clueless on fossils so I will try to be as specific as I can and have included a measuring tape in photos (just over 5" long x 2.25" around at widest) and the items weight (14.6 oz). The history is totally unknown to me. I saved this from being tossed in the garbage so I am assuming it came from the local area (SE Idaho near Idaho Falls), but that is just my guess. I have made no attempt to clean the item as I do not wish to damage it in anyway. This thing has significant heft for it's size and weights about as m

    Fossilized tooth from McKinney Falls?

    Hello, Yesterday during a day trip to McKinney Falls State Park, I found what looks to be some kind of fossilized tooth next to the Lower Falls swimming area. Would love to get an idea of what kind of fossil this could be! Amber

    Are These Fossils?

    Hey guys, I was wondering if these two shells are fossils or just plain shells? A friend of mine found them just lying around a trail in Colorado covered up by dirt and rock. It's a miracle she even spotted them. I mean seashells in Colorado of all places? If they are fossils would anyone happen to know the species? Thanks in advance
  25. Hello all, I was out causing some trouble in my backyard a couple of days ago when I stumbled onto this little guy. I don't really have an idea of how old this find is or what I to do with it for more info since it's only a partial sample, but I would love to hear any details y'all might have to share about this! If you need more pictures please feel free to ask--I will be glad to provide any other info on the find. Happy hunting and have a great weekend!
