  2. Nautiloid Cephalopod?

    Orthocone cephalopod. Probably not Orthoceras. Where (County, state?) was this found?
  3. Please help identify

    lol except me! Cause I texted that I thought it too thick for stromatolites. Oh well.
  4. My Jurassic Park - United States

    FYI, David Evans and Michael Ryan will be visiting me before the SVP meeting in Albuquerque to see this skull. So there is interest.
  5. Portugal fossils

    4 pyrite gastropods chilling in some jurassic wood. From Coimbra
  6. I found the following multiblock during a recent trip to the Wutach valley which I described here a few days ago. There appear to be at least 3 ammonites on the one side, although there could be more buried under the matrix. I didn't notice until after I had extricated the block that there is also one large one on the reverse side...not quite complete, but certainly worth exposing as well. Let's see what happens. Here are both sides of the block in the raw. The first thing to do then, was to have a go at removing as much matrix as possible with the air pen without getting quite down to the shells, in order to try to ascertain the position and size of the ammonites and also to see if there were any more in there. The next photos show how far I had gone before I decided that it was time to put the air abrader into action. There was a lot of broken shell material in there, but no more ammonites. There were also a few sticky spots and I didn't want to take the chance of breaking into a shell with the stylus. It turned out that the matrix on the side with the large ammonite was soft enough to be removed quickly, but there were a lot of spots where it was pretty tough on the other side. I did however manage to remove enough soft matrix to get a good idea of where the ammonites lay. With the exception of the one at the bottom left, since it fell into the matrix at a relatively acute angle, although I was getting the feeling more and more that this was just a partial. There was also a larger partial just above it which could be causing problems.
  7. Nautiloid Cephalopod?

    What is the formation the quarry delves into? Location of the finds? This looks more like orthoceras than anything.
  8. Please help identify

    I found this on the internet. It looks like everyone could be right.
  9. ? Florida Finds

    Any suggestions? 3 1/4 x 1 1/4 inch. Peace River. Looks like a root used to be on the bottom. Slightly concave.
  10. A possible Meg?

    Not Meg however out of curiosity, please can you take a photo of the tooth straight from the top? Also a side angle like the third pic in the below? Thanks!
  11. Nautiloid Cephalopod?

    Is this a fragment of a nautiloid cephalopod? It is quite large. Found in a limestone quarry. Thanks!
  12. My first Tyrannosaurid tooth has arrived!!!

    Hi! Sorry I am a bit late with the comment... I am also desperate for some quality stands and ways to present my fossils without paying 10€ per stand. A hard job... This is how I displayed my tooth,looks fairly professional, used some bubble rap-ish paper,put it in the box that was provided with the tooth being careful not to press the tooth against the hard plastic Andy voila! A decent and cheap method, you can clearly see the upright fossil, dust proof and all Until I get something better, I like it! Hope it helps! Regards
  13. Cretaceous teeth

    Thanks, No change to what I said above, nice teeth.
  14. School project

    If you wrote the essay about some thing your teacher is not familiar with, then student becomes the teacher. You will be opening their eyes to something new. You might wind up with a better grade.
  15. My first Tyrannosaurid tooth has arrived!!!

    Yes I hope so! Thank you!
  16. possible jaw part

    I had never seen this type occurrence with bryozoans. Thank you very much.
  17. A possible Meg?

    I would go with an upper anterior broad-form Cosmopolitodus/Carcharodon hastalis. The crown is too flat and broad for a meg, I fail to see any sign of a bourlette, and the striations lining the center is also kind of un-megalodon like.
  18. Cretaceous Teeth for ID

    Are all of these from the Hell Creek Formation if so 1, 3, 4 Crock, Borealosuchus or Brachychampsa cannot distinguish anterior teeth 2 is Stenonychosaurus sp. Premaxillary 5 is a mammal incisor , believe its Didelphodon vorax?
  19. possible jaw part

    The bryozoan was buried in sediment which later hardened. The bryozoan may have grown on hard ground. Then the bryozoan dissolved leaving an empty space, a mold.
  20. Portugal fossils

  21. School project

    The teachers not knowing about the subject might be to your advantage. You can fluff your essay and they will never know. When you get into college, they don't call it a BS degree for nothing!
  22. Portugal fossils

  23. Portugal fossils

  24. I took my camera along again

    The condition of your Estwing makes it clear I'm not working hard enough....
  25. possible jaw part

    Sorry but just to be clear, when you say this is a mold do you mean the carbonate/chert was deposited around (on top or over) the bryozoan at a later time?
