    Unknown Bone

    This piece was given to me by a farmer that said he found it near a small creek that runs through his property here in Central Illinois in an area of deep Wisconsin Glacial Episode drift. Does not appear to be permineralized, but I am not sure. Does not stick to tongue. Specimen is definitely worn, with burnished rounding at sharp edges, and is very dark, almost looking like iron oxide with magnification. Canal through bone is tapering in diameter, but that could be due to loss of marrow. 3.25 x 2.5 x 1.75 inches in size.
  2. For those of you that hunt rivers and creeks in the Midwest how often do you find horse remains? These three humeri were all found within a 2-mile stretch of a river within about a two year period - along with many other random tarsals, a femur, multiple tibia, and several teeth...
  3. I graduated college back in May, and since my graduate program did not start until September, I was fortunate to have quite a bit of time this summer to explore further away from home. I've been slowly prepping and cataloging over the past couple months, and figured I would share some of my favorite finds that I haven't shared yet. First up is dump piles of Silica Shale (Middle Devonian) in Paulding, OH. My university was not far from here, so this is really where I started fossil hunting. I've been here quite a few times, so most of what I found I already had in
  4. Here are some finds from a late August to early September long loop road trip, fossil hunting through Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, Indiana and Kentucky. I'll appreciate detailed specimen identification help. First photo shows brachiopods & a trilobite from the Devonian Silica Shale Formation near Sylvania, northwestern Ohio.

    Odd fossil I found In Missouri

    Location is in Missouri The area is dated to the Pennsylvanian most likely Raytown, Wyandotte Limestone Found in limestone that was blasted out by construction workers I have also found prehistoric fish teeth in the area (Mostly apart of Holocephali) along with Brachiopods, Crinoids, Nautiloids, horn corals, and unidentified cartilage from a limestone concretion. I darkened the left image and lightened the right image to try and make it more visible or at least the darker details more visible I d
  6. Location: Missouri Local geological map dictates that the area is Pennsylvanian Found in a rock pile left by construction workers that blasted out the rock. I posted a few of these teeth onto r/FossilID but I have not gotten any good responses to the ones below! So I made an account to show my as of right now unidentified specimen! I have found a few shark teeth in the area, such as Petalodus , and a few teeth that look to be from Eugeneodontida. These are by far my smallest shark teeth, and I was very fortunate to find any!

    Unknown Skull ID help

    Hello everyone, new member here! We recently started boxing up my childhood home to ready it for a sale and I discovered a long forgotten box that had a few fossils that my grandmother obtained during her ongoing 91 years on this earth. Almost all I believe were obtained by digs she went on around North America and chances are she obtained this one in the midwest. Most had tags like fish, mammoth tusk shard, and part of a deer jaw. I couldn't find an ID for this one, and upon asking my grandmother she hasn't the faintest idea because it's been decades and her mental state is slippi

    Midwest Ammonites?

    As much as I've looked through books and the internet, I haven't run across any possible places to find ammonites in the midwest. Any suggestions of locations? I'm in Illinois. My wife's keen to hunt one of these down.
  11. This big section of antler came out of a river in the midwest. Whitetail, Elk, Stag-moose, and even Caribou material has been found at this location. I hunt deer and it doesn't look like its from a typical whitetail but not sure, and does not appear to be from an elk with those strange 3 wavy tines but I don't know. Wondering if anyone has any opinions on this or any experience with stag moose, elk, caribou or anything else it may be - thanks.

    Coral, but what type?

    Hey, everyone! I am pretty confident this is a type of coral; but does anyone know what specific type it is? Thank you for sharing your expertise with me!

    Volcano-like Fossil: Help

    Hello! I am new to this forum. I enjoy finding fossils, and I can positively identify I have found brachiopods before. In the same location, I often find these volcano-esque sort of fossils; but I have found no literature online or in book form that could delineate what type of fossil this is, etc. Pictured below is a rather extravagant example of the mystery fossil. Thank you, everyone, for looking and extending some help to a beginner!

    Spyroceras?

    Trying to ID this cephalopod found in Silurian limestone in northern Illinois. My guess is it's a Spyroceras? In situ pic: Part of the cast glued together: Wavy lines in aquamarine colors and some pyritization/marcasite. I am clearly missing some pieces, but when fit together in the sarcophagus, it measures over 14". The entire cephalopod probably measured at least two feet or more, I'm guessing...
