  1. Found these on a shoreline in coastal South Carolina. I assume the larger vert is shark and smaller ones are fish. I'm mostly curious if there's enough of the big bone piece to get an idea what it is. The hole goes all the way through but is clogged with debris.
  2. I went fossil hunting for the first time yesterday at a fossil beach. I am wondering if this is some kind of fossil, or if it's just an interesting shaped rock. I found it at Beaumaris Bay Fossil site in Victoria, Australia.
  3. What is this wee tiny little thing? Measures just under 2 cm. Was found in a late Cretaceous stratum, in a transition area between the Pecan Gap Chalk and Austin Chalk of South Central Texas, USA. I'm leaning toward a fossilized echinoid of some sort. Maybe a fibularia specimen? Thanks for any help.
  4. Any thoughts on this? I know it's a stab in the dark, due to the small partial remnant. This is embedded in a large landscaping stone that was quarried in South Central TX, USA, almost certainly between San Antonio and Austin. So it's Cretaceous, for sure. It measures about 60 mm in length (house key for additional scale). What you see here is all that's visible, unfortunately. I appreciate the feedback!
  5. I am going to start adding some images of my favorite finds which I call Collection Pieces. Identifications range from maybe, probably to most likely. I've only started to seriously collect over the past year. I've spent a great deal of time studying and learning Geology, as a hobby. I am located in Western Pennsylvania. At first, a map of the area. Anything in bright yellow is the Glenshaw Formation. The Ames Limestone layer exists between the Glenshaw and the Casselman Formations, which is the Orange color on the map. I have yet to explore the Ames Limestone, so I've only found fossils that exist in the marine zones below the Ames. Second and Third, are Metacoceras. The Fourth photo is of another Metacoceras. The id is slightly less likely as I can only see a few of the rounded spines. But I'm pretty sure it is one. Coming up next is a Mooreoceras that I found just this past weekend. I maintain everything on a website, that is listed in my profile. Thank you! Clint

    Remnants of some sea creatures?

    On south Delaware beaches. This rock has some sort of white remnant. Maybe some shell creature from long ago?
  7. One of my best beach finds here in Delaware. Curious as to how old and strange that the shell develop these green crystalline flakes.
  8. This is my first post here. I’m not sure what I have here. Possibly fossil coral or some form of metamorphic rock. I live in south-western Indiana, Sullivan County specifically. It is my understanding that most rocks here date from the late Pennsylvanian. Terrestrial plant fossils seem to be most common here but these vaguely resemble coral. I’ve never seen rock like this before and would greatly appreciate if someone can help me ID this. Thanks guys.

    Lizard feet imprints?

    These evenly spaced imprints from right to left smaller to bigger sure look like clawed foot imprints. Any guesses? Found on Delaware shore.
  10. I found this small and delicate, nearly intact marine reptile bone in Big Brook yesterday, and I'm wondering if anyone can identify it. The bone is just under an inch in length.
  11. The first of these (the dark black one), I found last year and I was told by Dana Ehret of the NJ state museum that it was most likely a fish scale fragment, and that it could possibly be from a gar. After looking up gar scales, however, it has never seemed like a perfect fit for the shape. A few days ago, I made a trip to the brook, and found the second tan specimen. The pattern in the enamel looks very similar (though not identical) to the first, so I thought this could be another fish scale. Since I hadn't adequately satisfied my own curiosity about the exact species of the first, I figured I'd post photos of both and see what people think.

    Marine Bone id please

    I recently found this bone on the Kaw River but I can't seem to be able to id it. All I know is that it looks marine. Thank you all for the help!

    ID Help

    Hello, newbie here. This is first post. Does this look like a GIANT sea cucumber? Relative was a geologist and spent time in Italy and Columbia but was born in US, Oklahoma. But, I do not have any information about where it came from. There are three (3) of these. This is the smallest (or I say shortest) at approx. 1ft or 304 mm. Any information is appreciated!.

  14. please help me identify this tooth, found in java island, indonesia the height almost 10 centimeter

    Unknown snout /partial skull

    Unusual fossil which we belive to be a fish snout. We had at 1st thought potentially ptersoaur but seems more likely to be fish. We have also had the suggestion of a weathered turtle skull.The last picture is a confirmed partial ptersoaur bone we also found today.Found in NW Queensland in the Toolebuc formation which is early Cretaceous marine deposits. Has anyone seen something like this before?

    fish fossil

    Please help me to identify this fossil. Found in small river in mountain in West Java, Indonesia I dont know what kind of animal of this fossil & what's part? I think it's a fish skull. but what species? This fossil found together with megalodon tooth& crab fossil. Your answer is very meaningful to me. Thank you so much.

    Marine fossil ID

    Hi everyone! I’m a high schooler who is very interested in paleontology and archeology. I visited Calvert Cliffs in Maryland and found these fossils. The first photo contains teeth and I’m interested what creatures they may be from. The second photo is full of random things that could be something but may just be pieces of shells (I think there may be a fossilized crab pincer/claw). Take a look!
  19. Found by blue river in Kansas City Missouri. I have no clue what I have found. I always find small brachiopods,horned coral or bivalves in this area. It was difficult to get a good photo. The whole rock itself is about 10 inches long Hope someone can tell me what it is. Thank you VID_20240301_092103~4.mp4 VID_20240229_234758.mp4 VID_20240301_092103~4.mp4
  20. Just posting some pics of some finds from Chivo Canyon from 2020 and 2024. Would really appreciate any ID inputs on the Unknown Fossils especially the roundish one with many circles in it. It was roughly 4-5" in diameter in the center of a roughly 1 foot diameter rock. Guessing Sponge, Coral, or may an Echinoderm like an Urchin. The Chivo Canyon area is known to have fossils from the Eocene, and Oligocene periods. There are also a couple other unknown fossils which could be bones but not sure. The Tower Snails or Turritellas are probably mostly Turritella Uvasana. I don't know what the other Gastropods are. Thanks in advance for any ID ideas! -Chris.

    I am from South Dakota and mainly hunt for marine fossils. I also enjoy mineral and gold exploration. It's a treasure hunt with much to learn along the way.
