  1. Hello, I am seeking identification on a spscimen I found in Horsethief Canyon (not to be confused with Horseshoe Canyon), just outside of Drumheller, Alberta, Canada. (Dino capital of the world!). I found this specimen above ground while hiking in the coolees of the canyon. It was not nearby anything similar to my knowledge. I took photographs of it under my microscope to assist with identificafion. Thank you in advance for any assistance you can provide. Take care.
  2. 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!

    Big Brook Invertebrate ID Help

    I recently found this really cool double Agerostera mesenterica at Big Brook in New Jersey (Late Cretaceous; Navesink Formation). After I finished cleaning the fossil, I noticed these tiny encrusters on the larger of the two oysters. They don't look like your typical Serpula tube worm trace. I am not quite sure what they are. They almost have the shape of being some other type of bivalve. Any help is greatly appreciated. Some close-up photos using my digital microscope

  9. I found this thing as a 10 year old in France. It is definitely one of my better findings on the flint coast there. I think it's an urchin but I don't have much knowledge about urchin and like fossils. Could anyone help me specifically what it is?
  10. I've had this shark tooth for a long time now. But never gave it much attention. As I don't know myself what it is and since it's pretty small. Could anyone help me indentifying it?

    Hello again! Help pleas to identify it if possible Length ~5 mm. Age - most probably Eocene. Location - Western Ukraine. Thanks in advance!
  12. Morning all, my second post here after the presentation, and hope i'm doing everything right! Here the tricky question: I have received this piece from Chengjiang, more likely from the surrounding areas of the site. I'm pretty familiar with this fauna (have a lot of specimen, sometimes prepared by me) but when I saw this I was thrilled. The overall structure is no longer than 3cm along the curve, and I haven't touch it for any sort of preparation. Before I'll post it on my Instagram, I would to know better what it is. The shape and the "button"- like dots, circled in green

    What kind of rock is this?

    San Antonio, Tx 78023 After this weekends hard rain, this rock was sticking out. It looked much smaller at first. Oddly enough a rock I found a couple of months fits with it. The fractures on the front of it is why I’m asking what it is. It kind of looks like card board between the fractures.

    Colorful Petrified Wood

    This past Saturday I joined other members of the DVPS to collect pieces of petrified wood in a farm field near Odessa, DE. It was a lot of fun! Last night I finished cleaning off the last of the shards of wood that I found and I was struck by this piece. The color on it is very different from the cream and red color of the other pieces, which you can see on the reverse side of this piece. This one has a strange bluish spot on one side of it. It almost reminds me of the agatized coral that people collect on the Withlacoochee River in Georgia. I was wondering if anyone knew what this spot is. Is
  15. Hi Everyone, I'm very excited to have found and have an opportunity to post on this forum. The rock with a potential fossil was found by my six year old son while we were hiking along a riverbed (Paint Branch watershed) within greater Silver Spring, Maryland area. The rock was in a shallow stream. My son was pulling me by the sleeve to show me a "fox track". He loves nature and always draws my attention to various tracks and animal bones on the ground so I didn't think much of it at first until I realized this time the track was in stone instead of the usual sand/mud
  16. San Antonio, Tx 78023 The rock in the left was found behind my sisters house about 30 yards from a dried out creek bed. It was found about 8 in down while metal detecting. So far we have pulled about six various size rocks from this hole. It looks like it hard a corn, on the top right of that rock. The rock on the right is just another one from my back yard.

    This piece of Madison limestone contains a hash of crinoid and rhombopora. I initially thought this was fenestella but as I look at it again years later I'm thinking the geometry isn't quite right. Thoughts?

    Shark tooth id

    I'm not sure what species of shark this belongs to. All I know is that it is around 100 million years old. I think it may be from a Squalicorax or 'crow shark'. Any help would be appreciated

    Mysterious Basement Fossils

    My mother recently moved into a home in Shepherdstown, WV and when I mentioned I'd gotten into fossils recently she said the previous homeowner had left some fossils in the basement and that I could have them if I wanted. These have absolutely no provenance, I assume they're not from the area, but I think they're neat and I was just wondering if they were complete/distinctive enough to be identified. Also, is there anything I should do to clean them gently and keep them preserved? I have no experience with this type of fossil. There are 2 sea urchins and 2 shells, the larger sea urchin is
