  1. I found this in Alabama. I think it's a skull of some sort but every other time I've posted trying to get a fossil i.d. turns out all my " fossils " were just rocks lol. I love rocks and that will always be true but I'm getting a little discouraged with fossils . Please give me some good news that at least this is a real bone. Lol . It is 3 inches tall . 5 inches long and almost 3 inches wide.

    Petrified wood?

    Hi all! Is this petrified wood? I found it while hiking in Jackson Hole, WY. Any help would be greatly appreciated! I’ve posted these pictures around Facebook but haven’t gotten very many responses. Thanks!
  3. Hello guys... the three dolls here come from a Miocene (Langhien) site in France. First identification was "Trivia Coccinella" (but I onestly haven't found it anywhere). Could they be Trivia Dimitiatoaffinis? I'm using this website for a help (http://www.nmr-pics.nl/).. it looks that Trivia (or Niveria) Dimitiatoaffinis could be the most plausible choice (considering period and location). I found an evenience also here (https://www.paleontica.org/id_system/fossil_id_search.php?zoek=47-0765): it looks quite similar... what do you think?:) thank you all G

    Seven-sided crinoid stem?

    This is an enlargment of a photograph I took a while back, where only later did I spot the odd fossil. Apologies for the low quality. I'm curious about the star-shaped object with seven corners. This is from the Madera Group in the Jemez Mountains of New Mexico, which is a Pennsylvanian carbonate shelf formation with abundant crinoids, brachiopods, and bryozoans. I've heard of star-shaped crinoid stem segments with five points, but not seven before. Any ideas?
  14. Hello I'm interested in any insight as to what this may be. It was found today March 2021 in my back yard heavily wooded area while I was clearing a trail to ride small ATVs I raked through a ft of overburden and sticks etc revealing the dirt below and found half dozen stone edges protruding through the surface. In an effort to make the trail smooth I began to extract the stones using a spade type shovel after having dug out the stones I picked each one up to throw off the trail and when I grabbed this I realized it was not the same weight actually near weightless and hollow slight rattling no
  15. So I started fossil hunting and collecting recently. I dont have much knowledge on fossil identification and am not even sure if some of the "fossils" I've found are even fossils and not just cool looking rocks. Was just hoping people more knowledgeable on the subject could share what they think are fossils and if they know what types they are.

    Fossilized coral?

    Hello!! I recently found a beautiful piece of (what I now know) seems to be honeycomb fossilized coral. I found it on my farm in Tennessee along with many other small fragments of this type of coral. This is the largest piece I have found and would love to know more about it!! I’d mostly like to find out close to how old it actually is? If anyone has some insight on this I’d love the help! Thank you!

    Ammonite, species?

    I recieved this ammonite as a freebie with another, larger ammonite. It is pretty tiny, maybe .7 inches across at the largest. Can anyone identify the species, so I can label it on my shelf?

    Need help identifying

    Hello everyone - I'm a new member, and although I don't know much about fossils, I did find this on Morris Island, South Carolina, in 2015. I haven't been able to properly identify it, and I was wondering if someone could help me? It is about 1.25 inches (3.18 cm) in length and width. Thank you!

    Help Identify Jawbone

    Here is what I believe to be a portion of a dinosaur jawbone found in an Upper Cretaceous portion of the Morrison Formation of N. America (sorry if that area is a bit vague). I have other fossilized bits found with it I will be adding to this post soon. Thanks for your ideas on this one.
  21. Large shell fossil

    Large imprints found

    Hello! While living in Hawaii, I found these, I really do not know much about them, they are heavy and solid, any ideas on what they are? They were found on beach in sand like this, round and separate from a large rock, one is double sided
  22. Hi all! I've always found fossils to be quite interesting but never took the time to really get into them so I'm useless at identifying them. Well, recently I went to Galveston beach and found this item washed up after a storm. It's small (about 2cm across) and feels rather fragile/thin. I've never seen anything like it besides an ammonite but then those are always cast in rock, I believe, and this feels just like a fragile shell that I could probably crush if I accidentally stood on it. This may just be some sort of strange shell, but some googling hasn't led me to anything other tha

    Topanga State Beach, California

    I'm brand new here. My kids and I were at Topanga State Beach today and though we've been thousands of times before, this was the first time we found fossils! We found lots of rocks packed with small shell fossils, but then this one was much larger. The photos are all from the same one rock, different angles and sides. Any idea what it is (or maybe it's just a large shell)? Any idea how old it is?
