    Hi all, I'm fairly confident that this is what it was describes as, but I just wanted to make sure. It was found in a fossil site in Oklahoma that was formed during a large drought.

    Lesofprimus Fossil Collection

    Here are a few photos of my entire collection spread out in my living room between 3 seperate tables and separated by groups; Table #1 Crocodilians, Theropod Dinosaurs, Marine Mammals and Marine Reptiles. Table #2 77 Different Shark Teeth Species. Table #3 Amphibians and Reptiles, Miscellaneous Fossils and Fish.

    Permian Age Fossil?

    Hi there everyone! Ive got a tricky one today. I came across this listing for a “Trimerorhachis fossil” and I was wondering If y’all would be able to help me properly identify the specimen and possibly identify from what part of the body it comes from. The seller specifies that it was found in the Ryan Formation near Waurika, Oklahoma and claims that the bones belong to a member of the family Trimerorhachidae. Permian fossils are personally some of my favorites, but I’m not completely able to distinguish what this fossil could be. My only guess is that it coul

    Amphibian tooth

    From the album: Permian

    An amphibian tooth from the Early Permian of OK (Wellington Fm.). They can be differentiated from similar Actinopterygian teeth by the lack of a conical acrodin cap (translucent tip), no "S" curvature, and basal creases which terminate well before the apex. The exact ID is uncertain, but it could be something like Trimerorhachis.

    Is this a fossil

    I found this in a run off area among sandstone and limestone rocks. I’ve seen plenty of squashed frogs and that is what this looked like to me. This was in an area noted as Pennsylvanian series, Graham formation. I tend to see faces in everything, so I was hoping to get help in identifying this. Any opinions are appreciated.
  6. I went on a recent fossil hunt in North Carolina looking for the cow branch formation. I found some fossils. It was a very quick stop, about an hour before I had to leave. I found what I believe is to be a footprint it reminds me of a tremnospondyl but it’s from the cow branch I believe. I also found some shells there, plant material, and pieces of what looked to be good footprint material but I wasn’t there long enough to fully examine. So here’s the finds from yesterday: Total haul: footprint in question: outline of footprint: What specie
  7. On our famous auction site just popped out some incredibly detailed fossil insects and amphibians. Although there are no info from the seller (who probably got them without being aware of what they are), those are unfortunately not real. The matrix is clearly a limestone from Solnhofen, easily recognisable by the floating crinods (Saccocoma) and by manganese dendrites. There are highly detailed insect on them that have never been found in Solnhofen (including a giant spider). Also the amphibian column is probably a fish spine. There are already some bids on them, but please be aware
  8. I found this amazing fossil and I've just been so interested in it! I think it might be an aquatic reptile of which I can't remember the name of but it was found in a watery rocky sewer area near where I reside. I noticed it looked like an animal and took it home. I've washed it and took these pictures and really would love it if someone could help me identify it. Thanks
  9. I was supposed to go to a Permian site in Oklahoma when the Paleontological Society of Austin went a few months ago, but I came down with a cold instead! Yay..... So, my friend brought me back a bag of dirt! Because I love a good bag of dirt! My friend warned me that they didn't have a lot of surface finds, so I wasn't really expecting much, but I was happily surprised by the finds! The color on these fossils is my favorite part- gorgeous reds and purples! I know what most of the finds are, but there are a few unknowns, so if anyone can ID, I'd be thankful! Also, if
  10. Things are getting pretty serious over in The Fossil Zone, so I cleared off a few books and replaced them with fossils. Who needs to read, anyway? Feel free to ask questions about particular pieces. Whole collection: The turtle skull is real, but the surrounding matrix has been stained by the preparator for better visibility. Some here might recognize the new claw that arrived broken in the mail There is a Vinctifer comptoni fish on the back right, along with a negative Grallator footprint, which I can't seem to find a good way to display.

    Texas Permian Skull

    All that was on the label for this item was that it’s from the Permian age and from Texas. I don’t have any further info on it. Does anybody know what this is?

    Amphibian bones

    Been searching my upper level recently- Shinarump Formation, late Triassic. Finding some decent bone pieces. Most likely amphibian, particularly Metoposaurus.
  13. Hi everyone! First I want to say thank you to everyone who’s been so incredibly helpful these recent months. As my collection has started and slowly grown, I’ve always been able to depend on this forum for help, guidance, and knowledge. So thank you everyone! I recently came across this “Permian amphibious track” and it really caught my eye. Personally, the Permian period has always been one of my favorites and most interesting periods to learn about so I would love to be able to add something from that period to my collection, especially something this interesting. I was wondering
  14. Hi everyone! Recently I have purchased this item. But when I received I saw that the two leg laying in upper layer of the matrix. (Picture below) So is this original fossil or this is fake one? Thank you!

    I have three specimens of Apateon fossils in my collection. They are all from the Niederhausen region in Germany. Two of them are supposed to be Apateon pedestris, the third (the litlle fat one) is a Branchiosaurus Petrolei. But, Petrolei is an obsolete name and identical to pedestris, am I correct? Thanx for any feedback.
  16. Hi guys got a new Discosauriscus today, may I have your thoughts please thank you

    I’ve moved up to the higher levels of my property where I’m finding bones and coprolites. Still hoping for a big score of a full skull.
  19. Bought this piece at a Rock and Mineral show and according to the specimen labels that were included with the specimen. It has passed through at least 3 different fossil dealers. Each one stating the following information: Crocodile Scapula Locality: San Juan, NM, (USA) Now I suspect this piece is from the Triassic time period and could possibly belong to a large Temnospondyl amphibian and is a skull fragment not a scapula. Does anyone here recognize the patterning and thickness change enough to give an educated guess as to what it might actually be from?
  20. Hello, Just purchased some Permian matrix bags from Richards Spur, OK and the Texas Red Beds. I have a few items I'm wondering if anyone can help me ID. I do have some guesses for a few of them. Using a dime for scale. Red Beds Going to guess Eryops skull fragment on this one. I think these might be fragments of Orthacanthus spines. Partial vert? This one is so small I really can't capture any distinct detail in the photo. Most small teeth fragments in this matrix were the broken tips of Orthacanthus teet

    Finding more bone

    First picture is a clavicle impression which has bone imbedded in the rock. Second is a vertebral or cranial bone. The rest are bone fragments.
  22. RetiredLawyer

    Finally found some bone

    Stumbled on a nice pile of petrified wood pieces and it included some amphibian bones pieces. A nice dermal bone and possible clavicle piece.

    Permian tracks from NM

    I found some more Permian tracks in New Mexico and I think they’re probably related to a Temnospondyl amphibian. I have the first track I found from this place here, but I also found one with 4 tracks in the rock that I’m fairly certain are some of the best I’ve found in a while. : Here are those tracks. Now something cool I noticed on this one is there is a track I circled here: because it pokes out on the other side, like this right here: I’ll also give you guys a close up of the ot

    Mazonia-Braidwood Vertebrae

    Pretty sure these are amphibian vertebrae. Found in Pit 11 in the Mazonia-Braidwood complex.
