    Is this a bird fossil

    I found this rock when moving a load of limestone I had delivered. I always keep an eye out for what don't belong and this caught my eye when it appeared. I grabbed it along with the other outta places rocks I saw and upon further inspection, this looks like a fossil not just a rock. The separation for the beak, as well as the beak itself, maybe even the tongue as well, the symmetrical eye sockets, the triangle head shape, the red area almost perfectly lined up with where a spinal cord would be located. Looks like it died laying on its right shoulder with the way the face is contouring and the position of the spinal cord. 20240515_230734.heic 20240515_230716.heic 20240515_230707.heic 20240515_230655.heic 20240515_230642.heic

    I received these from my friend who passed last year. I am not sure where he found this. It was in a case with all North Sulphur River items, but these do not have the density/hardness of items I have found from there. They are very flaky. I think these might have come from Montgomery LA, but anyone's guess is as good as mine. I think they belong to a mammoth, they were separate in the case, and they do not appear to exactly line up to make a single tooth, one is slightly larger than the other. Anyone care to comment?

    Louisiana finds collection

    These aren't my only finds but these are the "big" rocks that I have. I've found a lot of pet wood (no palm sadly) and a lot of agate (which ain't a fossil!) down here which is always a treat to find. Anyways here is the first picture of my collection, showing the overview.
  4. Name's Shiba. I've been into fossils for a fairly long time now, but if you know Louisiana, you'll know that fossils here are a bit few and far between. However I like to think i've gotten a fairly respectable collection with some decent finds. Nothing scientifically important, but nice to have knowing how rare interesting fossils are to find. You guys in Texas and Florida sure are lucky haha. Because I don't have much to find I can't say I will be a frequent poster, but ill post what I can dig up every here and there. Im also a big militaria collector, something I also love and enjoy. Really old history is great, but learning about what happened 20 years before your parents were born is also very rewarding for me. Anyways, thanks for letting me on board!
  5. Or the tiny stuff I cant use to lift lol. Anyways first we have a nice big honeycomb coral, very sparkly, not sure why its like that.
  6. Petrified Shark Tooth

    Petrified Shark Tooth North/Central Louisiana

    Hello , I recently found this tooth here in central Louisiana! Just curious if this is normal to find ? Or have I possibly stumped onto something greater ? Thanks
  7. Flashlight

    Hello from Louisiana!

    I’ve posted to this forum once or twice before and have been using it as a valuable resource in dealing with my collection, and foresee my self repeating such action I’m the future, so I may as well introduce myself! I’m a 21 year old fossil enthusiast with a growing collection located in Louisiana. Fossil hunting is pretty slim where I currently live and all of my self finds are from Devonian-Mississippian age gravels used for landscaping (lots and lots of crinoid impressions!), though I dabble a lot in buying from online distributors (with some in-person buys when traveling) and have built up an international collection I am very proud of! I look forward to posting more, thank you for having me

    Louisiana Fossil ID

    This was found in Calcasieu Parish, Louisiana earlier this year mixed in with some rocks near the river. I am not quite sure if this is in fact a fossil or not. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  9. A-Bonn

    Not sure what this is...

    Hello, I'm new. This was found in Central Louisiana, in a rock/dirt pit. Between 30-40 ft. deep. Other fossils were found in the same area. It was under a thick (around 10 ft.) layer of reddit. Please be patient with me. I'm new, but have found some great fossils from this new dig. thanks
  10. Maria_LCM

    Hello from Louisiana

    Hello new friends! I am an educator working at a children's museum in Louisiana, and I have inherited a collection of natural artifacts to ID and catalog. My expertise is not in paleontology or geology, so I'll be popping in for help with all the (unlabeled) items I find! Nice to meet y'all!

    Need help… bone or rock?

    Found this today in East Feliciana Parish Louisiana. Any idea as to what it is…. Thanks
  12. MeggieKat

    Found in Southern Louisiana

    While riding four wheelers along the creek, my friends found this. To my completely untrained eye it looks like some sort of phalanx, but I have no idea. Several fossils have been found in the area from the pleistocene, pluocene, and miocene epochs. If you have any ideas, let us know!
  13. Does anyone know any good places to search for fossils in Louisiana?

    Unknown invertebrate

    I found this fossil a few years ago (since coronavirus started) in south Louisiana. I found another fossil tooth, likely mammal, that conveniently disappeared as soon as I got my forum account. It appears to be an Isapod like creature, any help? Sorry the picture quality is not great.
  15. MarieIsACommonMiddleName

    Is this invertebrate or vertebrate?

    Hello, the decorative rocks in the complex where I live in Louisiana have fossil traces. Many (possibly all) seem to be metamorphic from originating sedimentary layers. Mostly shells and coral imprints, but I've found two like this now. What is this please? Is it vertebrate or invertebrate? I don't know the actual origin of this rock, where the company that provided it gets them from. It is about one quarter inch in size.

    Hello from Louisiana

    Hi everyone, although I don’t currently own fossils I’ve always been interested in paleontology and recently started studying more into it again. I joined here to see all the fossil collections and pick up on some knowledge. As for a little about me, I’m a huge fan of all branches of biology. I’m more knowledgeable in extant animals and my primary focus is herpetology. I also love toxinology. With those two combined, my favorite animals are snakes and arachnids and I own 2 snakes, 3 widows, 3 scorpions, and 28 tarantulas. Though I don’t have any fossils, I do collect remains of extant animals. I have a decent amount of skulls and other various bones as well as mummified animals. That’s pretty much all about me, very exited to be a part of this community

    Can anyone identify this fossil?

    My mother accumulated some fossils during her teaching career in Louisiana. At one point...probably 50 years ago....they were sent to LSU to be identified. Over the years, some of the labels have been lost and I've recently gotten the identification of most. But this one is still "up for grabs"...the original label said "annelid?" Any help would be appreciated....I'd like to get them appropriately displayed....for some reason someone thought it was a good idea to glue them onto styrofoam.
  18. I have been too busy to get out fossil hunting when I want but there are a few recent times I've been able to get out. I wanted to try and post a small trip report about them. On October 31 I had the opportunity to visit the W.M. Browning Cretaceous Fossil Park in Prentiss County, Mississippi. Most people from the area are probably familiar with this old site but I'm a new resident to this part of the South so I wanted to give it a try. It's Late Campanian Demopolis Formation. It was a little cold and rainy but warm enough for someone used to North Dakota. Apparently these large concretions erode out of a higher formation. First tooth I found wasn't even in the creek but on the bank where I set my sieves. A good sign. A little tributary carving through the bedrock made for relaxing sounds. A little mosasaur tooth. Washing and drying the teeth back home. "Junk" teeth I set aside to use for biology outreach programs. S Some more pics of the mosasaur tooth. A nice Hybodus cephalic clasper. A chunk of cartilage and some verts. A blunted Ischyrizha rostral spine. Keeper fossils. A couple Baculites asper pieces and some Cadulus sp. didn't get in close pictures. I'm always a sucker for lightning and cool color variations in teeth. Serratolamna serrata teeth were the second most common. Squalicorax kaupi Squalicorax pristodontus Hybodus sp. and Pseudohypolophus. Most were missing tips but the Enchodus were a good average size. Xiphactinus teeth were just tips. Some bigger Scapanorhynchys were also present. Baculites asper and Cadulus sp. Anomia argentia The small Gryphaeostrea vomer. Exogyra ponderosa and Pycnodonte convexa (not pictured) were also a common find. Aside from the common material there were some nice rarer specimens and stuff new to my collection. Overall it was a very good trip.

    Cane River Eocene Fossil

    I collected this specimen at an Eocene Cane River Formation site in Louisiana during a recent trip. It kind of resembles a cephalopod gladius but I can't find a particularly close match. I did find a ton of Belosaepia guards at the site so the environment seems suitable at least. It's about 5 mm in length.

    New Eocene Shark from Louisiana

    Extinct shark named after LSU museum official as she retires (mynews13.com)
  21. Need help as I have tried to search with no results please. Found in East Feliciana Parish, Louisiana
  22. My grandson is turning 8 soon and he dearly loves dinosaurs and fossils. I want to take him fossil hunting for his birthday. I'm in Winn Parish, which is the northern part of the central area of Louisiana. Natchitoches, Grant, Rapides Parishes are close. Does anyone know where I could take him to find any fossils in these areas? I hope so and would be so appreciative!

    Gravel fossil hunter

    Hi everybody! I just signed up. I can't wait to share all of the fossils I found in the gravel on my little road!
  24. Hi. My name is Russel and I live in Oak Ridge, TN. Oak Ridge is known as The Secret City because it was built in 1942 for the Manhattan Project and did not appear on any maps until years after World War II. I grew up in rural Louisiana and spent hours looking through the rocks in the gravel roads for fossils. I absolutely love these windows to the past.
