    Madagascar dinosaur teeth ID needed

    Hey Guys, My friend has these 5 Madagascar dinosaur teeth from an old collection that he wants to ID. They’re all from the Jurassic Isalo III formation. Thanks for all the help!!! Here are some pictures and sizes: Left tooth 14mm Middle 15mm Right 16mm
  2. I have aquired a slab of rock that has a Barasaurus in it. Not sure if thats the correct name or not. Ive taken a close up of what is exposed, circled in white. Im afraid this is the head? Would so much have wanted the head end in the rock instead of the tail end. What do you guys think? Thanks

  4. Below are some of the slabs/slices/limb casts of petrified wood from my collection. I'll post more pieces in latter replies. I especially like very colorful pieces and unusual pieces like Teredo bored pieces or pieces with fungus. I have hundreds of close-up pictures. If you would like to see close-up pictures of a particular piece, reply to this post with the number/numbers. 1 Petrified Wood botryoidal agate golden calcite insect borings ostracods Eocene 50 MYA Green River Fm Blue Forest along Lake Gosiute Sweetwater County Wyoming 1.2 lbs 8.25 x6x.38 inches

    Ammonite from Madirovalo, Madagascar

    Hello! I got this ammonite fossil from Madirovalo, Madagascar. Cretaceous. That's all the info I got. Does anyone know possibly what species it is or if it's Lower Cretaceous or Upper Cretaceous? Regards.
  8. Curious if this "elephant bird egg" is real. The length and width are realistic and it weights about 3 lbs. 14.5 oz. It is smoother than I expected and appears to have been polished in places, especially in spots where some of the sections meet. Surface covered in fine lines (often with branches) as well as small holes. A small flake was examined under a microscope, showing one of the fine lines to consist of a series of holes. Other holes were also visible. I dabbed the flake with vinegar and observed bubbling under the scope. Images show some close-ups of the textured

  13. Hello, Is this fish fossil real? Listed as Pteronisculus from Madagascar, length 12cm. Any apparent reconstruction or fabrication? And how complete is it? Looks like the tip of the head may be cut off. Thanks.
  14. I just acquired this fossil recently. Can anyone provide some thoughts on this fossil? ID also, please. Is this a Barasaurus? Thanks!

    Sauropod claw

    Hello all I was offered this beauty from Sakaraha formation, Mid Jurassic (Bathonian) of Madagascar. It is ID'd as sauropod because there aren't any ornithopods known from the formation. What do people here say? It's 8 cm long .
  16. Any idea which species this is? The ammonite is from Madagascar, but I don't have the exact location. Size 26 inches, weight 120 kgs

    Petrified Wood Slabs

    I'm interested in petrified wood for the scientific value (wood where the cell structure is well preserved), for the aesthetic value (mineralized with vivid colors and crystal shapes), and for oddities (like fungus, insect borings etc.) contained in the wood. Below are three petrified wood slabs, from the United States, from my collection. The below individual slab pictures were taken with the slabs dry, indoors using my camera with flash. The close-up pictures were taken with my Dino-Lite digital microscope. Petrified Wood, conifer, fungus Polyporites wardii, early Permian late

    Marine reptiles of Madagascar

    Hi all, I recently became aware that Madagascar appears to have a fully developed and interesting Mesozoic marine reptile record, yet am not particularly able to find any information on them. The only article I have come across is Bardet and Termier, 1990, "Première description de restes de Plésiosaure provenant de Madagascar (gisement de Berere, Campanien)". However, I've been unable to track this article down. As such, I was wondering whether anybody on TFF might have any information on them. Basically, I'm starting from scratch, so would be very interested in the clades of
