fossil identification help
« on: 20/02/2009 02:54:57 »
My son has picked up boxes of these fossils in our yard.  Would anyone know anything about them?  I think the coral is tabulate.  He has many that look like shells, and a few big ones that look like bone stuck in rock.  We are in Alabama if that helps with identification.  These can be viewed at newbielink:http://www.photobucket.com [nonactive] under romansfossils.  password roman7

Thanks,

Roman's mom

Looks like a good amount of crinoid stems (left side of 1st pic)
Not sure on pic  2 & 3
Pic 4 looks like colonial coral. Each prismatic area represents the base of an individual animal.

For some reason I am not able to view the pics at photobucket.  Probably operator error.  ;D

Hmmm... I wish I'd noticed this thread earlier, but if you're going to publish a userID & password combination in a public forum you should expect someone to see it and then use it to log in to the account and change the password  >:(

Photobucket does have a guest password option: this permits those with the password to view the photos but not alter the account, (e.g. changing password would not be possible).

Sorry, it was a hastily made acct with just a few pics.  I guess I didn't think about someone being juvenile enough to change the password.

Thanks for those who replied.
