  1. This is in a limestone cave out in West Texas. I don't know anything further, I'm not there in person- the pics are from my brother. It looks a little like a turtle shell to me, but not segmented like they are. What really comes to mind is a crocodile scute, but I don't think there were any giant crocodiles in Texas, and I don't think any of them got quite THIS big anyway. The size of it really has my attention. If it was tiny, I'd think it was some form of invertebrate sea life or another, something I'm just not familiar with. That size, though? I have no idea. (Best picture they could get, it was by flashlight. Second pic shows texture.)

    Oddly Shaped

    Can someone help me out? Input? It resembles a reptile skull, but not sure it doesn't look like a rock either
  3. These were sold to me stating they came from the East Bluff area in Newport Beach, California. But research into fossils from that area comes up with late Pliocene material that doesn’t look anything like these. The serrated tooth is especially confusing. Any ideas?
  4. I found this on the beach in Georgetown,South Carolina, USA. The beach is in the Waccamaw Geological formation & same area l found other Pleistocene megafauna fossils ( mammoth, bison & horse ). This fossil has a toad skin like appearance with row of nodules dividing a semi flat surface & a 45degree angled rough surface. Any help with identifying it is welcome & appreciated.

    ID Help Peace River FL

    I have been searching on line periodically for the last several days trying to identify this little fossil bone found in the Peace River, FL last week. I can't help but think I have seen something similar before. I just can't find it now. So, any input would be greatly appreciated. I have searched for "fish beak", "skull cap", "reptile", "turtle" , "bird beak" in various combinations, even looked at a bunch of hoof cores, mouth plates, etc. just to see if it was possible. Specimen measures: 32mm x 20mm x 9mm or 1 5/16" x 7/8" x 3/8" In this last photo I am trying to show what I think is an interesting pattern on what I am calling the underside. I played with lighting and positioning to try and make it visible. To me it looks like a tulip in the center of the fossil. Base of the stem at the bottom of the photo, leafs on either side 3/4 of the way up and then a "tulip" shaped top. Hope you can see it. Thanks!

    Kem Kem jaw fragment

    Hi all! What do you make of this 8 cm long jaw fragment from the Kem Kem beds?

    Marine Reptile?

    I found this fossil in a rock pile the other day. I have not tried to clean up this specimen aside from a quick rinse under running water. I’m new to fossil hunting (and this forum) but am curious as to what this might be? Looks like it’s possibly the lower jaw of a small marine reptile. It was found in West-central Saskatchewan. Thank you in advance for any replies!
  9. Hey everyone, does this look like a tooth? I found this during my rock hunting trip in northwest Missouri near Grand River. It's approx 1.5" tall, 1/2" wide.

    Fossil ID - Reptile? - Maryland

    Found these in Maryland at Flag Ponds State Park which is known for it's abundance of marine fossils. I think the lighter colored piece is some sort of reptile (maybe alligator or turtle) skin? The black piece seems to be a some sort of fossilized reptile skin? Seeking expertise or thoughts, thanks!

    Mystery Tooth

    I'm hoping to get some help identifying what appears to be a tooth that we found while digging at the Fossil Museum in Aurora, NC. My first thought was that it looked like an alligator tooth, but I am unsure. Please let me know if you need another picture with more lighting.
  12. Hi everyone! I have no idea what this is. I looked up various scapulas and hip bones from various things (mostly reptiles) and could not find a match. It gets weirder though, while this one is from North Florida I have another almost identical one from the Moroccan Kem Kem! This piece measures 7.5 cm/2.95 inches long. The "fan" is 5.2 cm/ 2.05 inches wide. The base is 2.6 x 2 cm/ 1.02 x .79 inches. I'll try and get some pics of the Moroccan one but it broke and I have to fix it. What do ya'll think?

    Do you see what I see?

    Hello everyone, I am hopeful that I can get some information about this rock/fossil. I see quite a few different shapes in this guy here, but I need to make sure that my imagination is not running away with me. I don’t know if I should keep trying to brush clean, to show what I believe is the fossil. or continue. My Indian artifacts consume a lot of spare time, and space enough as it is. but now this guy got me really intrigued. thanks in advanced everyone.

    central texas tooth

    Here's a tooth that I found in a nice slab that had plenty of other easy to ID species - I'm having a hard time with this one though. I'm afraid to prep it further for now - the matrix is very hard, making my hand picks barely usable, while the tooth itself is very delicate. I see no carinae, but the tooth seems a bit long for a mosasaur. I also see no strong striations in the enamel that would indicate pliosaur. My best guess at the moment is Xiphactinus? What do ya'll think? Found in the Eagle Ford formation in central texas. I suspect on the Bouldin Flags member (at least I hope so! I've been trying to find the Bouldin Flags forever!) Scale is inches (the ruler is covered in marks so I shifted it to a clearer portion)

    Unidentified fish?

    Hi all – Uncle picked this up at a tag sale. Seller had no idea what it was. They got it from an estate sale. Looks to be a fish of some sort. Not alot of information to go on but I've seen you all ID worse. Thanks!!
  16. Since my previous two items were fake I quickly researched the web and found this fossil I actually managed to find a video for the fossil they're selling Screen_Recording_20210430-182055_YouTube_1.mp4

    Fossil I'd

    Found this and a whole lot more on the property. Can anyone help
  18. Recently I took a trip up to central New Jersey in the US with my sister for our 2nd trip fossil hunting; at a place called “big brook preserve”. As I was sifting through looking at some fossils that I could identify such as shark teeth and fossilized poop with my very basic studying from the Internet and stuff I’ve seen on tv. She calls me over at something she had found while sifting through the dirt in the brook. Thinking that I’d be able to identify it for her I was stumped. it looks like it has characteristics of a fossil from what I think but with my limited knowledge and understanding I keep going back to the idea of “nah it can’t be” And thinking it’s just a cool rock. Either way the water seemed to do a number on this this find eroding it over the years. Also the finds in this brook are usually Cretaceous period specimens and the occasional dinosaur fossil is rare, and reptile fossils are a tiny bit rare too here I think. I have a couple pictures that I took that night when we returned home. I’ll take better lit pictures if these aren’t adequate enough, but the main question I have that’s been bothering me is; is it a rock or a fossil from something once living? Side note the front is slightly smoothed/curved and the back is mostly flat. Please and thank you to anyone willing to help. I’ve also taken the time since then to email 2 local universities for assistance too if that’s even possible.

    My first prep: unknown rhaetian tooth

    I was sent a chunk of material from the aust bone bed of the U.K. by @JohnBrewer (thank you very much!) to practice some prep on, mostly for the large bone and coprolites. I was also told to soak the material in vinegar to get all the little microfossils. I've gotten started by breaking off some chunks (I haven't gotten the acetone for my consolidant yet so I'm not touching the bone just yet) and soaking them in concentrated vinegar (30% acetic acid I believe, strong stuff). After an initial soak I saw this little guy poking out the surface. I saw the opportunity to prep and got right to work (being the forgetful procrastinator I am, I haven't bought a new scribe yet so for the first half I used a blunt dental instrument, the next fourth using a sowing needle, and the last with the needle duct taped to a piece of metal). Here are some pictures of the prepping process. I at first got excited thinking it was a plesiosaur, but I doubt that because of its size (6mm). It's hollow, and has striations similar to the carinae of a crocodile (don't think they have those there). Severnicthys is one possibility I stumbled upon. Opinions are welcomed and encouraged!
