    Fossil jaw id

    Saw this fossilized jaw for sale and wondering what animal species it might be and if it’s real. It’s 7 inches long and I’m not sure where it was found.
  5. I saw this item for sale, said to be a Spinosaurus jaw fragment with an associated tooth glued on. Is it a composite, and does it belong to Spinosaurus?
  6. I found what are claimed to be Basilosaurus jaws online, and I can't decide whether they're authentic. They definitely have real material, but I have a suspicion that they might be composites. I should also note that they are suspiciously cheap [price redacted]. First one is 15.7 inches: Second one is 24.4 inches:

    Gar teeth?

    I was out of town for about 2 weeks and I had a chance to go fossil hunting at a pretty good spot (that post should come out soon). This is a piece of jaw one of my friends found with two teeth in it. Based off of the amount of gar scales found there my closest guess would be gar jaw, could anyone correct me on that? (Entering the pictures I notice that measurements are missing, it's about one cm.) Thank you!

    Is this an Enchodus jaw section?

    Hey all Is this little fossil a partial Ejchodus jaw? The piece on the left certainly looks like one of their famous fangs (although I'm not 100% I'm correct) but the bits to the right do not look like the little needle teeth, or teeth at all. The bone texture flows in to those bumps. Scale is in cm
  9. Hey everyone! I made an account just to ask this question from some real experts: is this Mosasaur jaw real? I bought a tooth from the same shop and the matrix looked the same: some bones scattered about in the dirt and rock. (It’s the one right under my pinkie I’m the image) I’m a little thrown off because, well firstly, the shop traveled to vendor at a fair and that seems a little suspicious. Secondly, they’re selling other items that are commonly faked from Morocco like Trilobites. I really want this to be real but I can’t justify buying a fake…

    Tooth ID

    Can anyone identify this tooth? I found it in a creek here in southwest Mississippi. I find a lot of mastodon parts, but this unusual. I am new here. It is incased in dry hard clay.

    Fish jaw? ID Campanian Sweden

    Found this bone of what I think is a jaw from a fish. Åsen locality Scania Sweden. Upper lower Campanian. Nearshore/deltaic enviroment. Greensand. Bone is 6 cm long and has a row of small "sockets" for teeth? Fish teeth found on the location is Enchodus, Protosphyraena, Pachyrhizodus... other finds include Tylosaurus, Clidastes, sharks, rays, turtles and chimaerids. Happy for any help on ID.

    Cretaceous Jaw Section

    Hi there everyone! I recently came across this beautiful jaw section earlier and I was wondering if there was anyone who could help me identify what animal it’s from. The listing states that it was found in Powder River County, Montana, and is listed as a “reptile jaw”. At first glance through my untrained eye I believed it to be crocodilian in nature. But after a little research I now think it could be Taiidae (lizard). Im still very new to this and I could obviously be entirely wrong so I’d greatly appreciate your guys’ feedback. Thank you guys

    Aurora NC jawbones?

    I was looking through all the bone fragments my wife and I found in Aurora, NC recently and noticed 2 of the pieces had evenly spaced notches along one side. The only thing I could think of is split jawbone fragments. Thoughts?

    Polycotylid lower jaw?

    Hi, Saw this and I think it is a small lower Polycotylid jaw (possibly from Manemergus or Thililua) and I wanted to get some opinions on it. It comes from near Goulmima in Morocco and is 42cm in length. Thank you!
  16. Any thoughts appreciated. Can't find anything that looks like this found in Big Brook NJ. End seems too round to be in pincher? I know this is a stretch prob but the only thing I found remotely like it online was a pic of a baby Mosasaur jaw fragment. Thanks!!
  17. Hello, everyone - I found this in a creek in Texas this morning. Initially I thought it was a large tooth, but on closer inspection, it seems like it might be a fossilized palate? With three rows of small teeth? Very odd, but I'm sure one of you will have a simple answer. Thanks in advance for any help you can offer. Specifics: Solid rock. Seems to be fossilized. Not a modern bone. 6.75" "Long", 3.25" "Wide" and 1.5" "Thick." In this particular creek I've found several Mosasaur (or marine reptile of some sort) vertebrae. Modern bones. Two arrowheads and a spear point. A

    Moroccan fossil (Halisaurus?) - ID

    Hi everyone, I bought this piece long ago and after last move I forgot it in a moving box. I just rediscovered it and I would like to know more about it. The seller said it was an Enchodus half jaw from Morocco Cretaceous. In my opinion : this is a real piece but perhaps an assemblage (just hope it is not a a complete Frankensteinsaurus). it is not Enchodus but it is definitely some kind of Halisaurus. I suspect there is a left dentary (?), a right surangular (??? probably glued piece) and 2 other bones (underneath the surangular and abo

    Marlin / Swordfish snout tip

    we have got two fossils I think this are tips of the snout of swordfishes. I have no idea about the location, they should come from US and perhaps miocene. But..., this is not a cleared information what do you think? Length is around 16 - 20 cm / 6 - 7,5"
  20. Hello, I'm interested in buying the Next mosasaur jaw. The problem is that the Seller has a lot of clearly composites so It makes me suspicious. Do you see red flags? The tooth doesn't look attached (with attached I wanted yo mean added, sorry for posible confusion) to me, but I can't really know, never had a real mosasaur jaw in real life to compare. (I Will ask him for more photos)
  21. Good morning all, Been looking at purchasing a Mosasaurus jaw, but know to be weary of composites. What do you guys think of this one?? Is it authentic and or compostie?? I appreciate the help!!
  22. Hey gang, still going thru old fragments and found this piece that I'm wondering about. Hope there is enough to confirm crocodilan due to the small elongated pits/foramen and maybe rule out any sea turtle jaw/dentary/skull possibilities. Shell pile find. Probably Plio-Pleistocene based on the types of shells found with it. Its approximately 8cm long X 1.7mm wide. It has a small channel/groove along its length that tapers to down to almost 1mm. Also shows a large foramen? that connects to this channel/groove/foramen? thru the flatter side of the bone. Its got many distinctive elong

    Which mammoth?

    Can anyone tell me the characters to look for in identifying which mammoth species this is? Found in Trego county Kansas ca. 1960.
  24. hi, i went walking in the north east of england and found this, it looked to be a fish jaw? i’m new to fossil collecting and finding as a hobby and i could be completely wrong but if anyone knows anything could you let me know? thanks it was found in a beck/stream, not directly on a coastline. could this be a fish jaw? or small animal jaw?

    Fish Jaw - Taiwan?

    I found this fossil hunting today. I am wondering if it is a small, fossil fish jaw. I can't think what else it could be. It is from the Dahan River, late Miocene. The place is marine, most of it is very fragmentary--small partial bits of shell. But I found this which looked curious. It is small, 1.3cm long. Hope the pictures are ok.
