    Greens Mill Run crocodile or mosasaur tooth??

    I found this tooth in Greens Mill Run in Greenville, NC. I’m leaning towards croc due to the size of the dental cavity relative to the size of the tooth, but perhaps it is a mosasaur. It has one carina on the anterior side of the tooth, none on the posterior side. Also, if it is croc, is there a way to identify whether it’s Cretaceous or Pliocene? Or if either croc or mosasaur, perhaps genus ID? Thanks!!!
  2. Hi all! So I recently posted regarding a bone ID on a mystery mosasaur/dinosaur vertebra (I’m leaning towards it being a mosasaur vert.). The vert. came out of either the Cretaceous Bladen or Tar Heel formations of North Carolina from a marine site that yields dinosaurs, crocs, mosasaurs, turtles, and fish (including sharks). Well, I went back through the material I had collected (from the same site as the vert.) and found what I believe are a worn tooth and a fragment of what I believe to be the proximal end of a femur (although I could very well be wrong on that). The tooth I would
  3. Hello TFF members - I'm in need so some advice on this one please. So this is my first post (happy to be corrected on any newbie errors) and although preparation is my favourite part of the fossil game, I am 'fairly' new to it - In other words, please go easy on me, I'm aware it's going to be all too tempting to say I've bitten off more than I can chew here... I recently purchased this Mosasaur skull from a well known European fossil auction site; you may have seen it yourself if you follow such things. It wasn't 'hugely' expensive, but that doesn't mean I'm not seri
  4. From the album: Lando’s Fossil Collection

    Collected from the Cretaceous Tar Heel formation of eastern NC. Teeth are either crocodilian or mosasaurian, and vertebra is either dinosaurian or mosasaurian.

  5. I acquired this fascinating fossil at the recent show. My first reptile bones. The dealer said it is from Morocco and of the same age (and matrix) as the mosasaur jaw sets he had next to it. But he wasn’t sure if it was a baby mosasaur or a different species of smaller aquatic reptile. I’m pretty sure TFF can answer these questions I have. 1) Is this a baby mosasaur or a different species (if so what species)? 2) Can you identify the visible bones? 3) Is it worth it or feasible to attempt to reveal more of this fossil? 4) If so, what special procedures/tools would be necess
  6. Last weekend was one I'll never forget... I've barely processed it, but now that I can be more coherent, here is the story of the mosasaur we found --------------------------------------------------------------------------- On September 11 & 12, I researched and found new fossil hunting area (to me), that exposed the Eagle Ford formation. I decided to scout it, and that scouting trip ended up being wildly successful. On the first weekend of my scout, I walked away with severa
  7. I went out to brave the Texas summer heat and was well rewarded. Post Oak Creek is so heavily picked, especially in the summer, that I didn't expect much. I even went there with the Dallas Paleontological Society last month and saw a ton of footprints then and not many good teeth. The first three hours I found almost nothing, as I expected the surface was all picked over, however I found one gravel bar that people must not have gotten to because I started finding a few decent cretodus, squalicorax, goblin shark teeth, and a couple of nice ptychodus. Finally I found two huge teeth about a foot
  8. Hi, I recently found a bone that looks like either a vertebra or a phalanges. The bone is from eastern North Carolina, legally collected from public land, and comes out of either the Cretaceous Tar Heel or Bladen formations. Both marine and freshwater organisms as well as dinosaurs are known to be found from the general area. The bone does not look like it comes from a turtle or crocodile, but I could be wrong. Is it a dinosaur or mosasaur bone, or something else? And no, there is no way this bone is Cenozoic. Thanks!
  9. To mark the occasion of this new sub forum for museums. I would like you show you some wonderful stuff in Teylers Museum in Haarlem, Netherlands. This is actually the oldest museum in the Netherlands and thus also has some really cool history attached to it and it's specimens. http://www.teylersmuseum.nl/en Besides fossils this museum also holds an art and science collection. The museum is just as beautiful as the specimens in it and a true time capsule. While it is quite a small museum, it's charm is worth the trip alone. Even the cabinets are pretty. It even has a few world firsts, such
  10. I am right now out in the field, attempting to extract a string of articulated reptile vertebrae in the lower Atco. It is in a soft marl bed just a few feet above the basal Atco. There seems to be articulated ribs associated with the specimen, and so far I have uncovered 14 verts. 9 of them were lose of the surface and bagged in ziplocks, but now I am trying to get the rest out. If anyone has any advice, I need it! The specimen also has articulated ribs. I want to get this thing home tonight, and not destroyed. This is is my first time attempting to extract vertebrae, and I want to

    Mosasaur or croc?

    Found this yesterday in the Ramenessin Brook in NJ. I'm thinking it could be a mosasaur tooth. Would appreciate your feedback. Thanks!
  12. hy mosasaurs lovers i looked around on differents americans fossils web sites , and i found ,is nowhere a description or list about different species of mosasaurs from morocco . so I'll try humbly to fix it . feel free to correct me if you see something wrong. the moroccan phosphate history began in 1921 , Moroccan phosphate mines operate three layers of phosphates ,. level 1 : ypresian phosphate bed level 2 : thanetian phosphate bed level 3 ; maestrichian phosphate bed level 4 ; maestrichian grey phosphate only at sidi-chenan quarry
  13. Hey all This has popped up on on my country's version of online.... yep, no online here! I appreciate your thoughts on this one I'm sceptical... real tooth, seemingly in good condition (on the one side at least) apart from a missing tip. I can see two different colours on the matrix.... is the bulk of it real matrix with fake matrix coated over the top to hide a bunch of inconsistencies? Or is the whole lot fake matrix. The area where the crown and root meet is bad, really bad - definitely manufactured. Is that even a real root or a random piece of bone? As

    Mosasaur teeth ID

    Several Moroccan mosausaur teeth I’d appreciate an ID for. I don’t know how to identify mosasaur teeth. Better pictures might be required so would be more than happy to send them if needed.

    Big Brook teeth

    Found these teeth in Big Brook,NJ today. First one I’m sure is a mosasaur but I’ve no idea on the second one. Thanks.

    A Physicist's Collection

    While my prime focus is essentially learning how to accurately describe Nature in the precise language of mathematics, I've always been intrigued by natural history - it's actually what started me on the path to physics. The sort of interrogation that paleontology practices provoked me to think and question even further, down to the fundamental science which makes it all work. Collecting fossils has brought a large amount of enjoyment to my life, and is often a welcome distraction from what can sometimes be straining work. The knowledge that I accumulate along the way is also part
  17. Hi everybody, I've seen this mosasaur skull... it has been classified like Eremiasaurus heterodontus from morocco . 750 x 380 mm. What do you think? Thanks
  18. Hi everyone, I currently have a friend in Morocco who recently found two teeth which he believes are the front dentary teeth of Carinodens which by itself are extremely rare but this tooth position especially. After doing some research I agree with my friend in Morocco about the ID to which he came to. But due to their rarity they are pretty pricey and because of that I wanted to have a second opinion just to be sure. Thank you all in advance! @jnoun11 @pachy-pleuro-whatnot-odon Care to chime in?
  19. Hi, I just saw these articles, and I wanted to make sure they are real. The vertebrae of Onchosaurus seem correct, but I am concerned about Otodus' teeth, and that of Mosasaur. Mosasaur 2.2 ctms.(Just the tooth ). and Otodus 5 ctms.
  20. Hello, im interested in this jaw. How does it look for restoration? From Oued Zem, 38cm x 23cm. Thanks for the help

    NJ Mosasaur?

    Hey all, Feeling a little like the boy who cried Mosasaur. I am fairly confident what I have here is a Mosasaur but wanted to get another opinion. The species I believe to be Proghathodon rapax (Hay).
