  1. Hi everyone! Well, I have another weird Kem Kem bone, one of the last mystery bones in the batch. And I'm completely stumped. The closest thing I have to a guess is fish and that's only because fish seem to have a lot of weird looking bones around their skull. I don't have anything to compare it to. There's a lot of weird nooks and crannies on this piece so if you all need a better picture focusing on a specific area let me know. Measures 9.8 x 5.2 cm and thickness ranges from 2.8-1.7 cm Any insight is appreciated as always

    Pterosaur or Fish?

    Hello All, I have seen a previous topic on FF about Kem Kem Pterosaur teeth vs. fish teeth. Which got me thinking about a tooth that I collected last year from the Toolebuc Formation, Queensland Australia, but just thinking it was a fish tooth, however its quite long, and Im not sure it matches exisiting fish from the Toolebuc. Scale is in CM. Thoughts? thanks Rodney

    A Fossil A Day.....

    A Fossil A Day....keeps the blues away! Or something like that... I started an Instragram account (jamielynnfossilquest) and am posting a fossil a day, so I figured I should do that on here, to REAL fossil enthusiasts! I'm a few days behind, so I will start out with a few more than one a day but then it will settle down to One Fossil (but I will admit, I'll probably miss a few days, but I'll double up or whatever.) I'll start with Texas Pennsylvanian era, but will branch out to other locations and time periods, so expect a little of everything! So enjoy A Fossil A Day! Texas
  4. Hey everyone, Just a quick ID post for help in pinning down what exactly these couple of teeth are. Up first is a broken crown to a tooth I found while processing South Bosque material from Central TX for a pet project of mine. It's Turonian in age and looks similar to some small Carchariniformes teeth I've found at the Whiskey Bridge. Note that when I found this tooth, I had not yet visited the Whiskey Bridge, so I am certain this is not a product of cross contamination. Anyways, it's unlike the other specimens I have from the South Bosque and I am struggling to find a genus that
  5. In the last couple of months my son and I have purchased some unprepped Lebanese fossil fishy's. There are four known species of guitarfish from the Lebanese provinces of Hakel and Hajula. Rhinobatos maronita is one of these; this species was fist described in 1866 by Pictet and Humbert. Some purty dang cool stuff but the guy we are buying from does not know how to wrap and send fossils over seas! Our last shipment came in many pieces! Not good. My son is working on him to make it right? Aside from that Im going to do what I can to fix things. First up is one side of what I think is

    Ozan Formation Sharks

    I have been trying to finish up my ID's of small teeth I collected last year from Moss Creek in Texas (near the North Sulphur River). This material is Upper Cretaceous, Campanian and I have found at least a dozen genera of sharks with Cretalamna, Scapanorhynchus, Pseudocorax and Squalicorax being the most common forms. I'm going to start with seven teeth that I think may be the same but I can not put a name to. I have been through the references I have specific to this formation or age, elasmo.com, and many very helpful posts on here, but I am still at a loss. In Welton and Farish, they lo

    Spring Break finds 2023

    Hey, hæ again forum! I had an amazing extended spring break full of road trips, camping with friends, splashing in rivers, and finding fossils literally led by flowers. Due to my class schedule I actually had almost 2 weeks off class since we had online work which was easy to do on mobile. It was a MUCH needed break from a lot of heavy stressful baggage February threw at me; being an adventurous & outdoorsy girl I only want good times with friends and nothing but memories filled with laughs, smiles, and nature. I started off my break the BEST way possible by hanging

    plesiosaur vertebrates

    got a nice fossil on a fair a week ago and started prep. Think it is a part of the vertebrae-column of a Plesiosaur, reminds me to posterior cervical vertebrae. What do you think? Big one, total size of the nodule is 40 cm, what you see is around 30 cm upper cretaceous, morocco, "Goulmima"

    Moroccan mosasaur teeth #3

    Hi guys, got a few more teeth, hoping these aren’t all thalassinotitan 1. This one likely is thalassinotitan but it has some unusual striations 2. this one has a weird root 3. I Would say thalassinotitan but it’s quite large compared to the others

    Lance Formation Sediment #5

    1. Looks like frill possibly?
  14. In 1995 (long ago...) a friend of mine and me digged at a highway-constructionsite in nw-germany. It was the Highway Nr. 2 between Gelsenkirchen and Gladbeck in famous Ruhrgebiet-Area. The construction site opens at a lenght of 3 km sandy sediments from middle Santonian, Zone of Uintacrinus socialis. We really found a lot..., beach sediments with everything from plants over echinoderms up to vertebrate fossils (some lang-living ones...), and stored it. Till now. Some weeks ago I started to clean, glue, sort..., to write a paper about it. Hope to finish in 2025, lot of work... I go to show piec
  15. Hi everyone! I'm back with another weird Kem Kem bone. I wasn't sure what to make of this thing at first. A buddy even suggested Crinoid at one point. The closest I can find is a gill plate of a giant fresh water coelacanth. Because apparently that was a thing. The pictures I've been seeing are all from Mawsonia though I'm wondering if I'm 1. on the right track and 2. if it can be IDed as Mawsonia or if in typical Kem Kem fashion there were a bunch of these things swimming around that all had a plate that looks like this. The bone is about 16.5 cm by 15.2 cm with 17.8 cm as th
  16. Dear Fellow Fossil Fanatics, I just had a great day at Big Brook, found some shark teeth but also 3 specimens that I am not sure at all what to make of. Any insights would be awesome! Best, Huttner
  17. Hello! I've found this today near Swanage, Southern England in the Purbeck group - early Cretaceous. The initial thought was turtle rib but I'm not particularly familiar with turtle anatomy, so I thought I'd run it by the group. The location has yielded crocodiles, turtles, Iguanodontian dinosaurs and some mammals. Sadly, had a break in it when freeing it from a bigger block, but recovered most of the pieces. Note that it is flat, thin, does not appear to taper or pinch along the length - not clear from the photo but it's uniformly 0.75cm thick and before the break about 8 cm in length. N
  18. Just to show: it is possible to find fossil pearls. This three come from the campanian of Hannover. They are found in a layer together with a lot of Oysters, all Ostrea semiplana So, when you find Oysters in a bed, look for small balls, might be a pearl This ones are right for a paper we write, will be published end of the years. If someone has pearls from upper cretaceous, let me know, perhaps we can add it not necessary to be campanian age, but upper cretaceous or tertiary, please

    Have I found something?

    Hi Everyone I'm an absolute newbie with no idea what I'm doing or looking for but had a fine time doing it. Exploring around north Canterbury New Zealand in an area known for yielding some great fossil discoveries. I found a number of oyster shell layers as well as some smaller crabs and other shells embedded in various rocks. When overturning some larger rocks I found this half buried underneath of one. I thought it looked interesting but again as I'm not really certain what I'm looking for it's likely nothing- but thought would post here as a learning opportunity. Size is approxi
