    Snake head? Or rock

    I found this snake shaped head in my uncles creek. After cleaning and not fully done. Because i am not a professional. Lol. Could someone tell me if this is what I think it is ? Washington state NW
  2. Hi! I'm looking for some help IDing these fossils from Green Mill Run (Greenville, NC). The two fossils were found on different trips, but seem to have similar structures. I have only found these two across many trips so they don't seem to be common. Someone mentioned that they could be lobster/crab claws so if anyone has anymore information on that, or alternate IDs, I would really appreciate the help! Thanks!

    ID please

    I found this beauty in knights ferry, California. It is very different from anything I've collected yet. I am eager to get any ideas of what it is or how it formed? The strip along the top is defined and somewhat deep and the grooves all over it are also pretty deep.

    Three oddities

    the first is this coprolite? ..I have seen some with odd colored patterns and was wondering....the second is what I think is some sort of shell in matrix?... found in gravel deposit from Brazos River west of Houston Texas.

    Another not sure item...

    location: West of Houston Brazos river gravel. This is an odd piece i have included pics of all sides and ends. At first it appeared lick a piece of rusted metal but its not, it has in the sun a sparkly appearance ...
  7. I found this very complete snail/mollusk looking fossil, it’s the first time I’ve seen the shell and body shape of a snail type organism preserved equally well in a fossil I’ve found- can anyone help tell me what organism it is specifically and from what time period? I found it in Southampton, Ontario in my rock garden, so I don’t know whether the rocks from the rock garden are from a quarry or the shores of Lake Huron (I would guess they’re from Lake Huron, but I don’t know). Thanks for your help, I’ve been holding onto this for years and always been curious as to what it is!
  8. Hey Folks, My 5 year old son found this close to home. It’s about the size of a small fingernail, and appears to be only a half shape, if that makes any sense? The object does not appear to continue beneath the matrix. Any idea what it might be? Thanks, E&B

    Just Weird...What is this???

    Ok found this Odd thing at first thought it might be petrified wood but I tried looking at it through a microscopic camera and could not find any of the basic fossil wood cell structure that I normally find on petrified wood. There are places on it that look mesh like? ....well I took a close up of it ... if it were some type of bone the inside would be darker right?....just not sure with this one. Found in a gravel load from the bed of the Brazos River near the West Houston Texas area.

    Hi everyone, this is a trilobite I bought when I was like 5 at the Natural History Museum in Washington, DC. Unfortunately, over the past decade I've lost the ID tag for it. I think it's a flexicalymene or calymene, but I'd really appreciate any possible guesses!

    Is this a fish coprolite?

    I bought this fish not to long ago and didn't really know what this thing next to the fish was. It was today that I thought maybe this is a fish coprolite. I would appreciate any help you can give me.

    ID help

    Found in western Oklahoma, was on a well site so could have come from a quarry in northwest Oklahoma. It is very very light. Any identification help would be greatly appreciated.

    Devonian Fish Scales New York?

    I found this odd piece in a grey shale layer in a place with devonian age matrix and fossils from new york with various layers from flakier layers compact with fossils to harder layers like this gray shale layer that this one thats not as compact with fossils as the other ones. I am unaware of devonian fish remains from new york and I usually do not notice odd minerals in the grey shale layer so this this piece baffles me, these small shiny "scales" sort of reminds me of how the devonian fish fossils of the old red sandstone of the uk kinda preserve but other than that I have no idea what else
  14. Hi everyone, found this in a new jersey cretaceous creek. Looks like a partial enamel something but I'm not exactly sure what it can possibly be from, it interestingly has some very defined ridges on the least worn side. Very hard to catch the clearest pics to show the sharpest definition but I tried to get the best I could. Maybe this can be a clue to a potential id. Pictures of it with whiteish background are upside down.

    Please help identify

    I found this circular stone type rock in my yard in mississippi. We have a small creek behind our house and we tend to find different rocks there.
  16. Haven't posted here in forever, but can anyone tell me what I've found here? It initially struck me as a plant, but at the same time I can sort of make out what resemble a crayfish head (complete with antennae) and claw. Neat to look at, whatever it is. About 6cm long. Pikeville Formation, eastern KY

    Echinoid ID help please

    Found in Parker County, Aledo area, Texas, 3-26-21. Limestone base.

    Help to identify this please

    Hello, first post here! I found this strange object at low tide on the shore of the Fraser River in British Columbia, Canada, just near the Agassiz bridge. I have no idea what it might be, but it appears to be at least partially composed of some sort of mineralized strands with what might have once been mud stuck into the crevices. It has been thoroughly cleaned, so everything you see here is rock, not dirt.

    Fossil Sand Dollar ID

    I have had this piece in my collection and just sitting on a shelf for a very long time. I was wondering if anyone recognizes it and can provide a name, location and age? Thanks
  21. This was given to me many years ago by a Texas fossil hunter, of course I didn't write down what he said it was or where it came from and haven't seen anything that resembles it except my box turtle which it definitely is not. Hoping someone recognizes it and this time I will make note!

    Lincoln creek formation mystery

    I found this concretion a couple years ago and have wondered what it was ever since. I believe the exposure was Lincoln creek formation, which is late eocene to early miocene. It measures 1cm. Thanks in advance for the help, my apologies for the lousy photos.

    Florida Unknowns Part 1

    Having returned last week from a nice visit with my son in Florida, it was time to examine the fossils that I snuck home with. Eventually, I will make a trip report, but I need to identifying my unknowns first. So Here goes, and I might as well tag @MikeR right off the bat! The next unknown appears to be sponge like. In fact the largest one ACTUALLY FLOATS in water. So these are very light weight. I couldn't find sponges in the Tamiami, so maybe my formation is incorrect. The rubbl

    Florida Unknowns Part 2

    As part 2 of my attempt to ID my recent Florida finds, I will present a variety of fossils collected from the Peace River area. @Shellseeker had given me an opinion on some, but I am forgetful and want to verify. Actually it may not be forgetfulness as much as wanting to get back to sifting for more fossils as Jack is talking to me, so I wasn't listening well!!! Hopefully not a chunkasaurus Can't remember if Jack said tapir or pecary Shrimp burrow? Another chunk of bone but it might be identifiable to those who deal with bone
  25. About 500m ASL, we had fun, found a clay bank and tried for shark teeth. In the end everything was too fragile, the shells disintegrated as we extracted them and the only solid things were the infilled burrows. Thought I had to share anyway... it was a fun time. https://youtu.be/ZOMRLKpItPI and some photos of the lunk we bought out... that is crumbling fast.
