  1. Hi there i continue to maintain my very very amateur status but I've been trying to read the different threads on here regarding spinosaurus jaw and what I gathered so far is pitting is reflective of croc jaw and if it only has a single socket or also makes it difficult to determine if its spino or croc. I found this one on our favorite auction site and wanted to get your opinion
  2. Found this tooth in Ramanessin in Holmdel, NJ. It is about 1.4" long, and it is missing about 1/4 of the top. There are striations along the entire length on all sides, and the top of the tooth has a very faint slightly raised line, but not to the extent of the Mosasaur teeth that I've found previously, so I'm leaning towards it being a Crocodile tooth, or possibly some other species. I figured I would ask for some opinions, since I am far from an expert. Thanks in advance for any input.
  3. Kem Kem Vertebrae ID (Croc/Dino?)

    Looking for a little help identifying some small Kem Kem vertebrae. I have some ideas as to what they might be, but I'm sure I'll be corrected. Hopefully the answers will prove useful to anyone else trying to identify Kem Kem verts too! So here's what I think these are: Vert 1: Small theropod, possibly a juvenile spino? (or maybe crocodile) Vert 2: Crocodile Vert 3: Crocodile? Vert 4: Theropod dinosaur Vert 5: Theropod dinosaur (looked a little similar to an Abelisaur vertebra I've come across on the forum before)
  4. Found this odd fossil on Myrtle Beach 2-18-2020. Never found one like this. Personal opinion it resembles a crocodile tooth that broke, and point recessed into the larger portion. However it is very solid, and there seem to be no seams to confirm this (and it was a wild guess on my part anyway). Hopefully one of you has a more educated opinion. I'd love to hear from you if so. Thanks for looking and happy hunting.
  5. Aquia Formation bone fragment

    Hi all, I found this chunk of bone at Purse State Park this November. It is from the Aquia Formation, which is of Paleocene Age. I was wondering if it could be identified to either crocodile or turtle, considering that these are the only two bony vertebrates that exist in large amounts in this formation. Or, of course, it could be nailed down to chunkosaurus status considering that it is relatively worn and isn’t very large. Thanks in advance!
  6. Croc or Turtle Ungual?

    Curious if anyone actually knows the difference between croc or turtle/tortoise unguals? Are there any diagnostic features? Have this ungual that we've always been in-between as to what it is:
  7. Hello, this is my first post on the forum so firstly I apologise if I have done anything wrong. I brought these teeth a number of years ago and have only just got round to sorting them out. The first one was listed as Jurassic crocodile tooth and the second as Jurassic Plesiosaur tooth, they both come from the Oxford clay around Peterborough. I would really like to put a species name to these teeth if possible so any help would be greatly appreciated. My initial thoughts were Metriorhynchus for the crocodile tooth and Cryptoclidus for the Plesiosaur but I am a complete amateur and would love some help from professionals. Finding information online about the Oxford clay seems to be very difficult. Thanks in advance for your help.
  8. My 1st Cretaceous Croc??

    Found in NJ in a cretaceous stream. I thought maybe a crocodile tooth?? Thanks!! Andy
  9. Croc or Mosasaur from Kansas

    I found this tooth in the Lincoln limestone of central Kansas. Lincoln limestone is Cenomanian, which is too early for mosasaurs I believe. I dont know of any croc material from this formation though, so I'm not sure what I've got.
  10. I hit a new spot in Northeast Texas. This area is a mix or cretaceous and pleistocene. The rooted mosasaur tooth and my first croc tooth made my day. Both are super rare for this area. I also found the largest Enchodus jaw I've found since I started hunting four years ago.
  11. TOOTH?

    Found by a friend in Northern Florida. I thought it was a tooth to maybe Gavialosuchus? What are your thoughts?? Thank You.
  12. Help on Claw ID

    Hello everyone, I found this nice claw in South Dakota over the summer and have yet to find a definitive match for its identity. It's about a centimeter and a half long.
  13. Crocodile Teeth?

    All hello! These teeth, I found in Uzbekistan, Dzharakuduk. Turonian. I have them as teeth of a crocodile. It is correct? Tell me please!
  14. Here is a large crocodile block which I would like to trade in return for an upper Carboniferous British fossil. I found it at Mappleton, which is part of the Holderness coast, UK. This is by quite some distance the best crocodile fossil I have seen from the Holderness coast, and one of the best I have seen from any part of Yorkshire. I collect mainly Carboniferous fossils, and therefore although it is one of the rarest fossils I have in my collection, I have decided I would like to trade it for something Carboniferous. 22 large bones/skutes are visible on the sides, with a few smaller ones. Most of the remains exposed at the sides seem to be skutes, but there are also what appear to be ribs, a large object which may be a skute but I think it’s another type of bone, and what I think may be a limb bone (visible on last photo). As fossils got to the Holderness coast by glaciers, it’s exact geological origin is uncertain, but I strongly suspect it is from the Lias of North Yorkshire. Due to the very large size of the object, I can only trade it within the UK. Thanks, Daniel Wilby
  15. An Eocene summer

    It was a busy summer, and now it is snowing. I got out a few times this summer and here is my report for y'all's enjoyment. Most of my outings were into Wyoming's early Eocene. Way back in the spring I went to a newly discovered mammal site. I showed one jaw here: Here is a view of the site. This is the early Eocene Wind River Fm in central WY. (Wasathcian in age). Lots of land to look at out here, and I have only prospected a wee bit of it. My pack is down thereon the flats... let's see if we can find any fossils down there. OH, look... a mammal jaw. And can you find an additional bonus tooth in there? Right next to this there were a group of crocodile bones. Again... find the bones. I dug around quite a bit to try to find the source of these bones and got totally skunked. I usually get out into the Eocene beds of southwest WY on Labor day, but this year it happened a month late, so here are some pix from the first weekend of October. It starts getting cold at this time of year. The first photo is me at an abandoned oil well site where the oil folks had scraped up a limestone layer in their bulldozing. The layer has bones in it... mostly turtle pieces and lots of very small (and practically un-prepable) fish bones. If you break rocks long enough you will find good stuff. Below are a the best things I found on this visit. For those interested, these things are prepped with ye ole air abrasive under the microscope. Dolomite at about 20 psi. There is potential for the air abrasive to abrade the bones and I am not sure if these teeth got overly air abraded or are suffering form Eocene erosion. It is very slow prep, so I don't focus too much on this layer. First a little croc dentary. Note that the bone runs off the edge of the rock. I spent a long time looking for the rock that contains the rest of this jaw... again, skunked. But this is a good little find. The empty roundish area to the right of the jaw is the impression of a snail. fresh water snails of the genus Physa are the most common fossils. This next bone is the angular bone of a small croc. The angular is one of the bones in the lower jaw. The limestone layer is in the Wasatch Formation. After busting up enough rocks, I went to one of my favorite sites about a half mile away. Also in the Wasatch Fm. This layer sits just above the same limestone layer that I collected at the oil well site. Here I am digging. Note the weather is getting nicer; I have jettisoned the coat. This site is full of small randomly distributed fossils. Again, mostly turtle pieces, but also some good croc material and occasional mammal teeth and jaws. And here is a distant view of the quarry. The limestone with bones is seen as an small cliff just below my backpack. So, let's look at a few fossils. First an emerging soft shelled turtle piece ( a costal plate). That is a dental pick for scale. The digging here is best done slowly so you don't break the bones. You can see other pieces of bones in here. The first photo in the next post is the same turtle piece fully exposed.
  16. Fish/crocodile skeleton?

    Good afternoon, I found these here today in Travis county, Texas after a good storm rolled through. I commonly find sea urchin fossils, shark teeth, and oysters from this creek. Thanks
  17. Purse Park, MD

    A few hours relaxing and finding teeth.
  18. Croc tooth? Aquia formation

    Hello all, first post on the forums despite joining awhile ago. Last winter I was fortunate enough to have some serious luck at Purse State Park in 2 consecutive trips while I was on break. Thanks to @Williamb55I was able to finally muster some motivation to seek some help to ID what I believe is a Crocodile tooth and Otodus from the Paleocene Epoch. Of course this could be inaccurate but I would love some insight into my find, comments and replies are appreciated. Best, DF
  19. Crocodile Tooth?

    Hi all, Just wanted to ask around and see if anyone had an answer for this. I purchased this tooth, labeled as an extinct crocodile species - Crocodylus/Kentisuchus Spenceri. Upon doing some research, I find myself confused - Wikipedia says that this species has only been found in England, France & Ukraine. My specimen is from Morocco. If it isn’t the species I mentioned, what is it? Specimen is just over an inch long. Thanks, Nate
  20. Need help

    so i went to Orlando Science Center today for the Dino Digs exhibition but in Jurassic Ridge dig pit area i know that there is a Camptosaurus, Camarasaurus, Ceratosaurus and a Stegosaurus, but there is some species and genus of dinosaurs and other animals that i dont know what there like take for example the turtle shell, the alligator crocodile like animal fossil, the ankylosaur like fossil and that bone that i dont know what species does it belong to and that nest that i don't know which dinosaur does it belong to.
  21. Possible horse and crocodile tooth

    Found these two teeth in a creek in north texas. I believe the first may be a partial horse and the second a crocodile? Any help would be appreciated as always.
  22. Finally: croc teeth?

    After years of finding zero crocodile teeth, I found three in one day on spoil piles miles apart. Since they’re new to me, I’m bringing them here for positive ID. Thanks!
  23. Crocodile tooth

    I have this crocodile tooth from Morocco Kem Kem Beds and was hoping if somenone could tell the species
  24. Unknown tooth

    Hi everyone, I’m new here and this is my first ID question post! I’ve found two of these in my searches, but this is the more interesting of the two with its lovely core. Pulled it out of a literal gravel pile near New Bern, NC. Thanks for the help! Frank
