  1. Here is my newest addition to the collection. A pretty decently sized Deinosuchus riograndensis tooth from the Aguja formation in Texas. The colors and quality on this tooth is actually insane, do not get much better than that.
  2. I've been trying to do some research about actual gator scutes not ostoderms that we call scutes. I know that Dino skin can be found so can croc also? Would love to hear about this subject and see some great photos if possible too please!
  3. Found on Holden Beach, North Carolina. If you need certain measurements let me know, thank you.
  4. Found on the shores of Holden Beach, North Carolina. If you need measurements of anything let me know, thanks.

    And yet another Peace River question.

    This is my final ID question. I promise. Until the next one. I'm thinking an alligator tooth with a very worn crown. Tom

    Fossilized Skin?

    I found this fossil in a pallet of rocks I got for landscaping. The rock came out of the Arkansas river. When you stick your tongue to it, it sticks as a bone would. I think it looks like reptilian skin. Could anybody help me out?

    Some fossils for identification

    I just posted some colorful small shark teeth I found yesterday, but also went out Saturday. I had a number of finds which were small and I was not certain of their identification... 1) An Epiphysis, which I think is a long bone "cap" for a juvenile mammal. Which bone? 2.) A possible claw... Could this be bear ? 3) Looks like a Carpal or Tarsal, but not one that I have seen. VERY light in weight. 4) An odd Alligator or Crocodile Osteoderm. On the left of the 2nd photo, there is a flat section on the left edge, and then
  8. I bought this tooth together with two other teeth as ''Smilodon teeth'' last year. Thanks to this forum, I found out that the other two teeth are actually Enchodus teeth! I think this one might be something else. Someone on Reddit told me that it could be a crocodile tooth, but I have little to no knowledge about crocodile teeth. I understand if it's difficult to identify, because the tooth isn't complete. It's 2cm and the seller couldn't give me information about where this was found. Any help is appreciated, thanks!

    A bone

    http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/82717-kem-kem-bone/ This link above has an interesting picture of an Alligator shoulder blade, that I thought a little similar. Not broken, a lot of detail... How come this one is difficult? ....

    Deinosuchus?

    Hello I am considering getting this set of Deinosuchus teeth. 37 teeth. They are from Chattahoochee River region, Bullock County, Alabama, USA. With the formation given as Ripley Now, looking online, it doesn't show Deinosuchus as being from there. But I do see teeth sold elsewhere as Deinosuchus from the Chattahoochee River. They were also apparently found in a dive along with David. R Scwimmer, who wrote a book on Deinosuchus. The largest is 27mm the smallest 10mm. If someone can take a look, that would be great.
  11. We found this tooth near 48th Ave in Myrtle Beach on Jan. 20, 2022. We have never found a curved tooth before. Any idea what it might be? We were thinking alligator or mosasaur. Thanks! Deb and Wayne Lien

    Peace River Hunt

    Got out on the river yesterday for what turned out to be a productive day. It was a chilly morning so the wetsuit was a necessity. Even if the air temp is warmer the water stays cold throughout the day. I returned to a gravel bed I found earlier in the week and got right down to digging and sifting. Every clean out of the sifter provided a good number of various small shark teeth. Tiger, Sand Tiger, Snaggle Tooth were abundant. A few small partial megs and even a baby Mako made an appearance. Below is a picture of the best of the shark teeth along with an alligator tooth and what I b
  13. Various teeth from Eagle Ford, Cretaceous, I'm a long way from recognizing teeth since I don't find them often so appreciate the education. My guess for first one would be Mako, it also looks very much like the tiny one in #3, second one I'm not sure at all and wondering what made all the marks on it? Last group I think there's an Echnodus, and cone shaped one looks like alligator or it's just wishful thinking.

    Any Recourse for Being Scammed?

    So I've just realized the "alligator skull" fossil my parents got me for Christmas last year is for sure a fake. I'm embarassed I didn't notice until trying to ID the species, the real mosasaur teeth threw me off. My parents really went all out spending a couple hundred dollars on this thing, it's the most expensive gift I've ever recieved. So I'm pretty upset they got scammed out of that much money. I imagine it's been too long to demand a refund, but is there anything I can do about this? Was this even legal? The place that sold it to us is an actual shop, not some shady pop-up vendor. I apo

    Unknown Vertebra in Venice

    Unknown fossil. Found in Pleistocene material. Inland, Venice, Florida. Specimen measures 65mm x 60mm. Smooth portion is 42mm high. I have found both Equus teeth and alligator jaw in same location. This item is a first for me. It appears to be possibly a caudal vertebra? Image 2 has a concave surface. Image 4 has a convex surface like it would match up with another concave surface. I think I have seen a photo of it before somewhere but I don't recall. Thank you for your ID assistance. -Regards, Michael

    Possible Gator tooth

    I believe this is a crocodile or alligator tooth but it's much larger than the ones that I have or that I have seen. Is that what I have?

    Unknown Florida Vertebrae

    Found the most complete vertebrae today. Caramel brown with intact neural canal. Same location I recovered a Hesperotestudo crassiscutata carapace in January. Inland Venice, Florida. Mostly Pleistocene material here. I don't think it is a gator. Your assistance is appreciated. -Regards,
  19. Hi everyone! I recently got some Florida Pleistocene fossils and I'm having some trouble identifying them. I think the first is a wolf molar and the third is either a turtle or alligator claw but beyond that I'm stumped. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Vertebrae id

    Because of a recent post by @GPayton I went through a pile of unidentified bones and found three vertebrae that I think might be alligator or crocodile. These are from the Brazos River in Texas. Please confirm that these are crocodilian if possible…. @Harry Pristis @fossilus @Shellseeker here’s #1

    Alligator Vertebra?

    Found this almost complete vertebra on the Brazos River near Houston several months ago, missing only one of the larger processes and one of the smaller ones. I initially assumed it was just another horse or bison vertebra which are pretty common around here, but after looking at it again I realized that, although worn, one side is convex and the other is concave like in reptile vertebrae. After looking at some pictures online it bears some resemblance to alligator vertebrae. If that's what it is I would be overjoyed since the only other alligator material Ive found before is a single osteoder

  23. I haven't posted in a while, but have had some pretty good hunts over the last couple of years. This year has been busy with work. I made it down to the river for some fossil hunting for my first time in 2021 last Friday. I had a really nice day. The weather was beautiful. I had great visiblity. I'm hoping to go again tomorrow. I took some photos of some of the days finds. First photo: - One of the things I was most excited about is a potential talon of a bird of prey. It is broken, but you can see it in the photos below. I am pretty exc

    Alligator Bones

    Not sure about others, but I realize that I am finding bones that I have yet to recognize, but think might be alligator. Found this nice comparison photo... What is the name of these bones? Are they ribs? Did I find one of them here? A couple more. I think the 2nd photo is a Calcaneum, what is the first and is either this bone?

    Gator/bovine bone?

    Hey guys! I'm hoping someone can help me ID this bone? I found it a little while ago in a river close to me in south Florida. I feel like it’s something obvious like a gator or a bovine but I can’t get a definite answer and it always drives me nuts when I can’t ID a bone! I’ve found one or two others similar to this in the past.
