  1. We found these 2 fossils on the beach tonight. I am thinking some mammal, but I can’t figure out how to even start identifying it. I’d appreciate some help. It’s making me just a little excited :-).

    Some worms?

    Hello! What it could be, for me looks some worms, but may be I am wrong. Max length - 0.9 cm Western Ukraine. (Cretaceus-Neogene) Thanks!

    Vertebra ID

    Hey All, I found this vertebra today on the beach in Charleston, SC. Can someone help me ID it? Is it from a Dolphin? Thanks in advance!
  4. 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
  5. I have been collecting fossils for many years, but this fossil is without a doubt the strangest and most mysterious of the fossils I’ve ever found- I would really appreciate your help in helping solve this mystery of what it is and how old it is! It was found on the rocky shores of Lake Huron in Southampton, Ontario. I initially was interested in it because it looked like a boot and I thought it was a native carving, but realized it must be a fossil of something I’ve never seen before. It’s very interesting to me because it almost seems to be coiled like a spine of an animal, but could also be
  6. I found this very complete snail/mollusk looking fossil, it’s the first time I’ve seen the shell and body shape of a snail type organism preserved equally well in a fossil I’ve found- can anyone help tell me what organism it is specifically and from what time period? I found it in Southampton, Ontario in my rock garden, so I don’t know whether the rocks from the rock garden are from a quarry or the shores of Lake Huron (I would guess they’re from Lake Huron, but I don’t know). Thanks for your help, I’ve been holding onto this for years and always been curious as to what it is!

    A Very Tiny Mystery

    Hello wonderful fossil-people! If you and you're gang enjoy solving a groovy mystery, I have a post for you! This rock was found in an area of Northern Arizona that is very well know for producing lots and lots of bryozoan, brachiopod, and crinoid fossils, as well as crystals and geodes. The bit of rock in question was found in the side of what appears to be a broken geode. There is a triangular fragment of stone that does not match the material surrounding it. There is also a white discoloration encompassing the triangle that I've highlighted in green on one of the photos below. The colo

    Rock or Fossil?

    I found the item pictured a couple of weeks ago in Big Brook in Colts Neck, NJ. I have seen photos of Pychodontid fish teeth online and am wondering if this could possibly be one, or if it is just a rock with a similar shape. Hoping an expert can let me know.

    River bones...?

    These were all found in the same river, over time. It is a river in SE Texas known for fossil finds from large mammals in the Pleistocene. I think due to their river tumbling they are not identifiable, but I just wanted to see if it is possible they could be some type on mineral rather than bones? Pics are front back. We find a lot of petrified wood in the area too, but it normally looks distinct from this. The two on the left almost look like they are variations of the same thing, and the one second from left has some kind of almost enamelish looking stuff in threads on the surface. Non

    Mosasaur teeth identification

    Hi! Any help I can get with identifying these mosasaur teeth would be much appreciated , or if someone can provide me with some good links/pictures on how to identify them. They are all from Khouribga phosphate mines. They are small teeth ( 20-30 mm) and not in top notch condition but still it would be fun to know what kind of species they belong to. I´ve numbered the teeth to make it easier to describe what tooth your talking about. Thanks/Patrik

    Fossil Identification in Western Wisconsin

    Deep Spring Road bivalve ID?

    So still going thru items from my Deep Spring Road quarry dig 2 years ago. The ruler marks are mm. Below is a shell I "believe" is a bivalve. I think Goniophora sp. Any ideas please?

    Deep Spring Road ID's?

    So still going thru items from my Deep Spring Road quarry dig 2 years ago. The ruler marks are mm. Below are a few items I'm looking for ideas on. First 2 are bryozones I think, 3rd is ????, it consists of the negative which is the tan imprint on the upper left and the positive which is flipped up to the right.
  17. Hello!! I’ll get right into the backstory. I bought these together, labeled as “Tyrannosaur Eggshells”! Unfortunately they came with no other information They are (as you can see from attached photos) pretty small chunks. I was taken aback by how cheap they were, I’ve never bought dinosaur stuff before though so I’m not sure if that’s a normal price. What you can’t see in the photos: -has glittery and small crystal-like structures that shine in the light. Mostly on the sides of the shell. -Not particularly heavy. Seems to be lighter than what a rock their size w

    Advanced Dinosaur Egg Guide

    The Advanced Dinosaur Egg Guide Please share this with those who have egg questions. When possible, technical terms were avoided or defined. Every effort has been made to ensure accuracy, but it is always important to do your own research. This guide is merely a snapshot of information taken from many scientific publications. I am not an expert on eggs, rather I just love sharing what little I have learned over the years, what science has learned over the years. For an overview on how to spot a fossilized dinosaur egg and the sizes of eggs, see the basic guide:

    Need help with ID

    Just wondering if anyone can help with identifying what this is. Found in southern Alberta. Dinosaur Park formation.
  20. Afternoon everybody. I found this in Feb 2020, after Storm Dennis, on my same south Suffolk beach. I've looked at many vertebrae images online and in books, and none seem quite right. It looks closest to a seal...? But that doesn't seem right. Thanks for any guidance!

    Literature on fossils

    Fossil forum, Good morning. I have been looking for literature on the following for a while now, and have not been successful. I was wondering if anyone already had information on the following, or can direct me to a place where I can look for it myself. Brachiopods, specifically Lingulids (classification and identification) Salopina genus ( classification and identification), this genus was moved from Orthis, for further clarification Rhychonellida (classification and identification, at least to the genus level). Camarotoechia genus (classificat

    unknown fossil?

    Could I have some help working out what this thing is?? My partner got this random fossil mix with nothing to tell you what anything is and this fossilised has got me stumped
  25. I got a megalodon tooth which is clearly restored, but may we get to know which part is restored? I suspect entire root is restored? New in fossil still learning here. I posted some extreme closed up of root, enamel, and serration. Thanks for the analysation in advance.
