  1. Saw this for sale, not sure whether it’s real or what species of animal it came from, but looks like plesiosaur? It was “purchased at the Tucson Gem & Mineral Show.“ it weighs 6.1 pound and the bottom jaw is about 9.5 inches long, the top is about 9 inches.
  2. University of Bath researchers said it was "plausible" that a plesiosaur could have survived in the Scottish loch. https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-scotland-highlands-islands-62317648 The study was published in Cretaceous Research
  3. Goal: collect all Pierre Shale formation main fossil specimens. During my fossil hunting trips I collect a lot of different fossils but never take the time to figure out what it is exactly. Here I will record my trips and finds but more importantly try to identify what it is. This list will encourage me to not just look for the big marine reptiles but also smaller things I normally ignore. I understand how unrealistic this goal is but it's fun. Any feedback or suggestions are welcomed! Specimens shown on wiki for Pierre shale. Marine vertebrates
  4. I think is marine reptile. Poorly fossilized. Also how to post many pics at once?

    Mosasaur skull piece? Pierre shale sd

    This fossil has many grooves, holes and structures. My only guess is it's a part of a skull of mosasaur or plesiosaur. Any ideas? Or good reference pics of skull parts for comparison? Thanks
  6. 2ft long block. found weathered and near other marine reptile and fish fossils. Couldn't find any more parts to this. Is this a tail? Seems small compare to other mosasaur verts I find.

    Damaged Plesiosaur Tooth

    First of all hiiiii this is my first post on this forum Soo, I live in germany and am doing some vacation on the beach rn. I found a guy selling gems and fossils. I bought this lil specimen. After I bought it he said its the most rare thing in his inventory lol. According to the guy the tooth is from a plesiosaur, unknown if there is more in the matrix(Atleast there are some shells but thats not the point of this post anyways.). All I got about where its from was "south brazil". Facts list: >Plesiosaur tooth presumably >partially damaged >From (

    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!
  10. Hi there everyone! I acquired this plesiosaur tooth specimen from Oued Zem, Khouribga, Morocco not too long ago and I couldn't help but be fascinated by all of the different fossils found in the single piece of matrix. The front of the specimen contains a beautiful plesiosaur tooth with what I believe is a fish vertebrae and other fish material. On the back, the specimen is riddled with small shark teeth as seen by an exposed root and various exposed crowns. Though I'd greatly appreciate a positive ID on the plesiosaur tooth, I'm really more interested in th

    New longirostrine pliosaur described from the Oxford Clay

    Hi all, Just came across the exciting news that a new pliosaur genus and species has been described from the Callovian stage of the Oxford Clay near Yarnton in Oxfordshire. Dubbed Eardasaurus powelli (Powel's Yarnton lizard), it's a longirostrine thalassophonean pliosaur that is slightly more derived than Peloneustes philarchus (with which it shares numerous anatomical features) and forms a sister taxon to "Pliosaurus", Simolestes, Liopleurodon, Pliosaurus and brachaucheninae. A feature of particular interest in the dentition of this new species is the presence of connecting carina

    Monster Plesiosaur Verts

    I said to myself at the start of the year, I’d try to find more bone, rather than just ammonites. Well, last week I hit the jackpot of rarities here on the Yorkshire coast. Plesiosaur vertebrae. Now, marine reptile bone is quite rare here as a whole, Ichthyosaur comes out every now and then, but plesiosaur, pliosaur, and crocodile are MUCH rarer. So imagine my shock when I see a vert, pick it up, and it’s plesi. Then, I find a second, that slots on perfect, then, a third about ten metres away that also fits together. Straight onto the beach they went. I penned off the little shale matrix th

    NJ Cretaceous Partial Vert ID?

    Found in NJ Cretaceous stream. Any suggestions? Looks like a partial vertebrae. Possibly Plesiosaur? Or even Dino?

    Possible NJ Plesiosaur tooth?

    Found in NJ Cretaceous stream. The striations stood out to me. Even though its small (about 3/4-inch) could it possibly be a plesiosaur tooth?
  16. I recently acquired a collection of Cretaceous fossils from the estate of a Dallas, TX, collector—mostly shark teeth. Unfortunately, they didn’t come with location info, though they were most likely collected in North Texas. I could use help identifying two of the non-shark fossils (and probably some of the shark teeth too, which I may post later). The scale in these photos is in centimeters. #1 - Is this a plesiosaur tooth? There are two cutting edges, on opposite sides of the tooth (see the third set of photos, top and bottom). #2 - I have no idea

    Ozan Formation polycotylid plesiosaur tooth fragment

    Hi all, I got this partial tooth in last week which I bought from a US-based seller claiming it was a mosasaur tooth - though I bought it already suspecting it is not. Having since received the specimen, I can confidently say it's plesiosaur, more than likely polycotylid, as the ornamentation exhibits dense packing of fine striations lingually and a near complete drop-off of striae labially with only some small ones remaining near the base of the crown at great intervals. In a lot of ways this type of ornamentation is reminiscent of that of Jurassic pliosaur teeth. But as the tooth

    Biritish Kimmeridgian plesiosaur tooth

    Hi all, I bought this Kimmeridgian plesiosaur tooth from the Faringdon sponge gravels a while back. It came identified as Colymbosaurus sp.. At that point, I simply accepted this identification, seeing as the teeth of Colymbosaurus (or, at least, what's suspected of being Colymbosaurus) were already known from the Etches Collection and I didn't really have the means to verify the ascription from online sources. Today, however, The Etches Collection posted a video on Kimmeridgian plesiosaurs on their YouTube-channel, which make it abundantly clear that my sp

    Pliosaur? From Morocco

    Here is a 7 cm long tooth, claimed to be pliosaur. What do people here think? It's from Morocco, unsure where specifically. @pachy-pleuro-whatnot-odon

    Not sure if fossil?

    Hello! Indulged my hobby a little this weekend (4-7 Mar) and headed to Lyme Regis for some sunny ammonite hunting. Found this while digging on East Beach there… I’m nowhere near experienced enough to determine if it’s even a fossil at all, but it was such an odd shape and I thought I’d ask! About 1 3/8 inch (3.5cm) across and approx 1 inch (2.5cm) thick. Found 5 March 2022 on East Beach, Lyme Regis, Dorset, UK. See photos below for details. Thank you everyone!

    Jurassic Coast Fossils

    Hi all! I've been really busy creating all these watercolour illustrations based on fossils from the Jurassic Coast. Here we have an Ichthyosaur, a Plesiosaur, an Ammonite, a Scelidosaurus and a Belemnite. There will be a few more to come soon...
  22. Recent finds from my new year day adventure. Found these two teeth within 2 feet of one another. One I am confident in saying is a Mosasaur but the tooth on the right I need some help with! If anyone can shed some light it would be appreciated! Thanks
  23. Hi all, A couple of years ago I acquired a lovely pair of plesiosaur propodial bones from Lyme Regis. It was a matched pair of both humerus and femur. Today, when I was looking to make space in my cabinet for a new acquisition I had made, I discovered some odd dust next to the humerus that, on inspection and to my horror turned out to be pyrite bloom! I immediately removed the specimen from the cabinet, checked the other podial and nearby fossils, and used a tooth brush to brush of the most direct traces of pyrite decay. But the question is: what now? How do I ensure the propodial's prese

    Fossils from the French west coast

    I was able to obtain a couple of fossils found on the western coast line of France. The first one is presumably a piece of paddle bone from the upper tithonian, found between Wimereux and Cap de la Crèche. It measures about 220 x 160 x 65mm. Very heavy. The second is a vertebra found between Cap d'Alprech and Equihen (Tithonian). Measuring about 80 x 65 x 35mm. Could these be pliosaur or rather plesiosaur fossils? I'm sure they are too worn to identify better than sp.? Thanx for notes!
