  1. Past hour
  2. How do you choose?

    I like the ones that give me that “WOW” impression when I look at it.
  3. Large Track

    Yeah, as everyone has already said this doesn't look like a good track. CT River valley tracks are mostly eubrontes and Grallator neither of which match the anatomy of this drawn on outline.
  4. Spinosaurus, Mantellisaurus (iguanodon) Muraenosaurus (plesiosaur) and Cryptocleidus (plesiosaur) vertebrae
  5. Fruit seed pod or stem cross section?

    Have a look at Bonanzacarpum, recently described in Manchester and Lott (2019). I think it compares quite favourably, though your specimen seems to have a sixfold symmetry, where most of the specimens in the paper appear to have a fivefold symmetry. Perhaps contact the authors? https://content.sciendo.com/configurable/contentpage/journals$002fif$002f75$002f2$002farticle-p281.xml
  6. My favorite vertebra is from the Kem Kem beds. I have no idea what animal it belonged to actually but I think it's from a crocodile. Second one is from the Khouribga phosphate mines. Sold as Mosasaur but I think it's Dyrosaurus phosphaticus. I don't know if it comes from the Cretaceous or Eocene layers.
  7. Show us your fossil replicas!

    Claw replicas left to right, Variraptor claw from the Gres a Reptiles Formation, France, Velociraptor claw from the Djedochta Formation, Mongolia and last Tyrannosaur. indet hand claw from Unknown Formation in Alberta, Canada.
  8. Fruit seed pod or stem cross section?

    From the images I see on line I would stay with stem. The conducting tissues/structures being the distinction.
  9. Jumbo Orodus tooth

    Sure, or you can just post them on this sub-forum and let the real experts have a go.
  10. @Troodon It's no problem at all! Your original post with a sneak peak at some of the fossils inspired me to do a full tour. I'm glad I added in the localities and specific I.D.s, it was some good practice as I'm still trying to learn names and localities of some major species and families. I also picked up The Princeton Field Guide to Dinosaurs: Second Edition in the gift store and I'm going to try and read a couple pages each night, just glancing through it looks like there's an immense amount of info on an uncountable number of species. Thanks for taking a look!
  11. Sting ray tail? No barb.

    I found some similar to those here ... These don't have barbs because suffered erosion... I agree with sting ray tails.
  12. Looking for assistance in Calvert Cliffs

    Thanks for the well wishes. The lead excavation person said he could send a couple pictures. I would like to give someone else the opportunity that was given to me due to my circumstances, and hope another opportunity comes up. I had planned to use my GoPro and film it so my children could use it for school science reports and such.
  13. No problem at all! Hopefully you get to see it first hand one day. I would suggest that your son takes a camera with a lot of storage to get a ton of pictures of everything so you can see after his trip. Here's a floor plan of the museum so you can point him to some key area's you want to see. https://naturalhistory.si.edu/visit/map
  14. Plant fossil

    This region is a little bit to the west from Abiquiu. Here is the surrounding map. Close to the road. Likely deep in Triassic. Far from the river flood-affected area, so could not be washed from the older sediments.
  15. Sting ray tail? No barb.

    Not sure what these are, found on Myrtle Beach. They don't have the barbs that I find on some sting ray tails, but wondering if they are just a part of the tail further up? Thanks!
  16. It's no problem at all! Glad you enjoyed it!
  17. Today
  18. Another vertebrae! a toothed whale vertebrae from the Yorktown Formation, Aurora, North Carolina.
  19. Looking for assistance in Calvert Cliffs

    I wish you a good recovery. Can't the excavators themselves take turns making video shots just in case you haven't found someone yet?
  20. Can someone help with my IDs on these please?

    No problem! Eotympanotonos funatus is the updated name of Tympanotonus funatus, a lot of resources online don't seem to have updated their names, or they use them interchangeably. This link has a picture of it (with the outdated name) http://www.trg.org/downloads/fossils of abbey wood.pdf I'd also recommend the Natural History Museum's British Cenozoic Fossils book. It covers a good range of fossils, including lots that can be found at Abbey Wood. I hope this helps, and I look forward to seeing what else you find!
  21. Help with ammonite identification

    Welcome to you and your ammonite impression from Germany.
  22. Lords of the sea Plesiosaur, ichthyosaur and pliosaur verts with a replica of a human lumbar one Ulyanovsk Oblast, Upper Jurassic
  23. Weird little tooth from the Chesapeake Bay MD

    I'm thinking perhaps Galeocerdo posterior. If you rotate the first photo 45° to the left and the second 45° to the right you might see what I mean.
  24. Self Adhering Wrap- Your hands will thank you!

    This is great. I'm going to get some to wrap my ME9100 body. This should help reduce the amount of vibration transmitted to my hand whilst working for hours on end.
  25. Weird little tooth from the Chesapeake Bay MD

    I think it is a very worn Tiger shark.
  26. How about a camelops cervical vertebrae? These are hard to find with processes intact. For scale it's about 10" long from tip of process to tip.
  27. I found this in the Chesapeake Bay a week ago. At first I thought it was a badly damaged shark's tooth. But after looking at it a while I'm not quite sure I think that any more. I was hoping to let the pros on the site take a look.. Thanks for any info!
