Identify a Fossil Find
A quick (and dirty) in-the-field test to assess whether something is maybe a bit of fossil bone or just plain old rock, is to lick it. If your tongue sticks to it, it’s likely bone. We know – it’s equal parts awesome and gross. This is most likely because rock is generally pretty porous and you don’t get much of a “seal” when your wet tongue hits it, whereas a piece of fossil bone (at least exterior bone surface, not the spongy, hackly interior bone) is smooth at even a microscopic level, and you get a bit more surface-tension-ish grab when your tongue hits it. If this is too much to stomach, fill out this form, and our research staff will get back to you about your discovery.
