Don't worry about it Roz, I'm sure we've all done it at some point. Three years ago or so I posted images of a tooth I found on a beach to a couple of fossil forums to identify as I thought it was a Cretaceous marine reptile, but it turned out it was a fox. What an idiot.Roz said:Yes, I can identify with picking up many heavy things that I am sure are fossils only to find out later that a lot of it is rock.
They have the right internal structure, but the external shape leaves something to be desired, still they look very close to those cretaceous belemnites found on the east coast. Would need to see more and better preserved fossils for a better ID.Roz said:I think the second picture may be pyrite belemnites.
What do you think?
I've just found an interesting photo of Titanosarcolites, comparing one to a geological hammer. Fascinating, I had no idea that these things grew so large; I thought they grew up to finger length size at most. Obviously not!Roz said:Thank you all for the great inforamtion and Kevin with the link...I believe that I found it... Titanosarcolites!~
I didn't know they got that big either...Originally posted by Phil Fascinating, I had no idea that these things grew so large; I thought they grew up to finger length size at most. Obviously not!
