    I know, just keep hoping 🙂 what would be considered a rare fossil for the area?

    I am having a few problems with the web site, I’ll try to remove one, thanks for the heads up and help.

    My finds today, and yes that’s a painted stone. Taking a walk early morning on the Little Miami Bike/Hike Trail, Ohio and looked down and saw this painted rock. I so appreciate people spreading goodwill and cheer through such a simple concept. I realize that the far right finds could not be fossils but I’m still in search of dinosaur teeth in what was once a vast sea of water. The top find had an interesting embedded fossil which I am assuming is some sort of coral. Happy Sunday to all. PS Getting tips for better photos by a photographer professionally trained.

I so appreciate people spreading goodwill and cheer through such a simple concept. I realize that the far right 2 finds very well could not be fossils but I am still in search of dinosaur teeth in what was once a vast sea of water. The one top find had an interesting embedded fossil which I am assuming is some sort of coral. Happy Sunday to all. PS I know I need to get better at picture taking and am getting tips from a Professional Photographer.

    Sometimes the Earth shows you it’s history in incredible ways. #fossil

    My Horn Coral skills are on point, of course when I found my first one I thought I was staring in the jaws of a dinosaur, rookie mistake. #fossil

    • I’d say it’s a nautiloid cephalopod.

    • Though I’m no professional.

    • @ginger-merker this specimen is on the site twice, is there one where you would want to fill in the classification and other information? You can easily edit your specimens on the website and I could put one just in the groups you posted them in and the other can have all the information. Let me know if you need help with any of that. – Jen

    • It’s an endocerid nautiloid, and the clue is what looks like a large tube (called a siphuncle) inside the larger shell. The upper half of your fossil is the siphuncle, and a little bit of the siphuncle projects at the bottom. The entire shell would have been much, much longer, and it would have been occupied by a squid-like animal.
