    Any idea what this could be?
  2. WAStatePugetLobe

    PNW beach find, curved vertebrae, unknown

    This was found between glacial and non glacial quaternary sediment. Slightly north of Ocean shores, WA. NOT on the beach, but where the forest meets the beach and erosion is occuring. I brought this to the only fossil shop local to me and all they recommended bringing it to another shop hours away so trying my luck here! You can see the vertebrae which after taking a soft brush to curves around in the shape of a I, the clearly visible vertebrae at top are the largest in with, however the length of each remains the same as the width lessens. There are at least 9 verte
  3. WAStatePugetLobe

    Am I crazy? Fish or fluke??

    My only true "questionable" find whether it is something or not. I love learning about geology, that said after we purchased 3 acres on land which was under glacial units (Puget lobe in WA state, possibly Pleistocene) I dug a hole near what would have been a bank however many thousands of years ago (16,500 years ago would have been glacial outwash). I crack rocks open to see mineral composition. This was found slightly above (maybe 1'-2'), what I would label the alluvial line, but I am very much an amateur when it comes to defining specifics. Google fish fossils and
  4. Last summer I became interested in collecting mollusks from the Chicago area rather by accident. I happened to find some shells in a dug up wastepile. I contacted the Prairie Research Institute and it turned out a geologist there was interested in C14 dating them for a surficial geologic mapping project he was working on. I then became obsessed with finding more from different points around the city. I was able to find 5 other localities and these samples were also donated. These are are freshwater aquatic mollusks from the Tolleston shoreline of ancestral Lake Michigan. Overall it was fascina

    Quaternary mammal fossil?

    I found this bone in Interior Alaska down river of some bluffs that I know have produced mammoth bones and other Pleistocene age fossils. I am curious if anybody can identify this bone and whether it is really from the quaternary or is it more recent. There is crystallization in the holes in the bone and it feels more dense than a normal bone would. Be thankful for any thoughts and information.

    Dugong & ?

    Its been awhile. Ran over to the big sand pit for a few the other day and came up with these certs and one other. Fell from on high so really tough to see what layer they came from.

  10. I went to a construction site near a big lake (Dian lake 滇池) at Kunming, China (Although this city is famous for Cambrian fossil) This place is going to construct some apartments. A lot of workers pass by without realizing they are trace fossil. it's geological map is: from https://www.osgeo.cn/map/m02db the location is around: from IOS's map So it suppose be from Quaternary, right? (but I am not sure if lake trace fossil can produce trace fossil like below) And I found some trace fossil:

    Please help ID this little guy

    Hello folks. I'm back after an extended break. I've found some really cool fossils on my land in southern Missouri, Texas county, USA. Just a few miles south of cabool. A seasonal stream flows through my land exposing some cool finds, not to mention- the heavy rains are washing the topsoil away. From the hundreds of artifacts I've collected, this spot must have been an indigenous settlement. My best guess is that this item was in the hands of those early Americans. I can see why, this is my 2nd most favorite of the collection. Please help me identify what this is. Any help would be greatly app

  13. Hello, I recently found these three items in Custer County Oklahoma where Quaternary mixed with Permian and Cretaceous bedrock can be found. They were all found about 5 feet from each other with items one and two on top of each other. When I hold them they remind me of a terracotta pot in texture and kind of sound like terracotta when you tap on them. I am guessing they are fossilized bone? If it is bone I would love to figure out what it came from but understand that determining exactly what it was from may be difficult. I appreciate any input on what they could be and

    fossil toe or rock

    I found this on a gravel bar last weekend. it appears to be a carpal/tarsal bone. it may just be a pseudo fossil. it feels fully fossilized not just old bone. I was hoping to get a better handle on what I have. if it is a fossil it either came from Pennsylvanian age rocks or quaternary river gravel, no Mesozoic rocks around here.

    Can you ID this one?

    Hello again friends. I've found this while hiking at about 1800 m. a.s.l. in Santiago-Pontones (Jaen, Spain), in a place which I believe is quaternary. I've not been able to find it in the local literature. Now I only have this picture (I have more but they are dark and not useful), the rock is limestone and is wet, the fossil is conic, I'll post more pictures if necessary. The ruler is in cm. Thank you.

    Artic hyenas?

    Interesting article on a fossil tooth that his been "buried" in a museum vault for years. It was recently identified as a type of hyena that may have roamed the Arctic Circle. NYT subscribers, or those who haven't gone over a free limit, should be able to read. Cheers. Arctic hyena tooth fossil

    Equus teeth

    This is unusual for the areas I search. Usually Equus and other teeth being float fossils are one at a time singular finds. This trip I found a piece of matrix with two Equus teeth embedded in it with an outline of a missing third tooth in the clump. One upper and one lower tooth are embedded in the matrix very close to each other....unusual. The matrix itself is a puzzle....the color and texture are unusual for the area....stood out like a sore thumb. Matrix reminds me of the type you'd find cemented around bottles and garbage in a century old landfill. I always enjoy finding horse teet

  20. Last week I was on holiday in the Netherlands and found some nice things, especially shark teeth ! I was at the area of Antwerp, in Cadzand, in Vlissingen and at the Zandmotor near Den Haag. In this topic I want to show my finds from my visit at the Zandmotor. The Zandmotor is artificial peninsula, constructed as part of the Dutch coastal defense system. The sand originates from about 10 kilometers offshore, and contains bones of various land mammals from the Quaternary period. On my visit I found some bone fragments, two shark teeth and some more things ....
