Hi Folks!

 

Been meaning to post some new finds and questions and finally settled down enough to start.

 

Item #1:   top side is boring and round and appears to be a rock.  But then you flip it over and go Hmmmmm!

Item #3:  And then I’m wondering just what I’m finding all over the beaches, fossilized bone or petrified wood…

Nice finds. I still enjoy wandering on the beach picking up bits...many times identifiable sometimes not 

1) the spiral suggests it could be a fragment of a gastropod operculum

2) those grooves might suggest a turtle carapace/shell fragment

3) the graininess could be bone or wood. Cant tell from this image 

4) tooth fragment, additional views of the ends might show that it is possibly horse

5) might need additional views but the general shape and thickness suggests a possible turtle shell fragment/maybe a chance its an osteoderm of some kind

6) possible bone/turtle shell fragment
