    Possible pterosaur/bird bone?

    Hi! I'm a new user who's really into marine reptile bones, by which I mean mosasaurs and plesiosaurs from the Late Cretaceous strata found where I live. I've recently found a small yet satisfying piece that seems to be a hollow bone of a pterosaur/bird. The age of the strata is Late Campanian/Early Mastrichtian and the rock itself is an erratic piece of an "opoka" - a siliceous limestone typically found in Poland and Germany. The bedrock from which it originates lies very likely underneath the Quarternary cover in what is now the Gdańsk Bay (SE Baltic Sea region). It's hollow inside and when v

  3. Hello. I found this fossil in the alluvial deposits along the Feather river canyon in Northern California downstream of Quincy. I have never seen a fossil in the river. Looks embedded in argillite. Closeup shows infilling of cells with black silica, and a few spots of opal. Looks like bone I have seen elsewhere. Wraps around to the backside. Any ideas?

  5. My best friend found this outside her apartment in a planter bed. We live in the city of Whittier, in the county of Los Angeles, located in the state of California. She is dead set on it being a fossil... Myself, on the other hand, is a little skeptical. Hopefully the pictures I’ve included do some justice as to figuring all this out. Thank you so much for your time and effort.

    Theropod, Bird, or something else?

    Hello, I'm asking about the following bone end. It's said to be from the "Judith River Formation North of Havre, MT". Seller thinks it might be a bird bone since it's hollow but doesn't look like theropod, what do you think? @Troodon confirmed it's not dinosaur and might be turtle, is there enough to tell? And how would one make that distinction?

    Flag Ponds Weirdys

    Got some weird stuff from the Cliffs, been meaning to get them checked out. first one up i think is a bone fragment of some kind. it passes the tongue test. but someone on the FB group suggested it might be a fragment of a Gomp tooth perhaps? this is a bone fragment, but the porous nature of the middle has me thinking bird perhaps? also, the top edge is rounded and smooth so it looks to be a small diameter long bone. lastly is this piece, Im sure its probably a beaten up snaggletooth, but the cross section has me thinking mammal possibly?
  10. Hi Community, I am not quite sure what my latest addition to my fossil collection really is. Kryptodrakon? Kunpengopterus antipollicatus? Confuciusornis? (But there is no tail and no indication of feathers) Monkeydactyl”? Please help me in identifying what it really is. Size: 12" by 10" Many thanks, Peter
  11. Hi everyone! Ya'll where a huge help with the shark teeth I posted, so I figured I'd ask for some help with some of the more unusual stuff I've found at Post Oak Creek. For anyone who doesn't know Post Oak Creek is a small gravel filled stream in north Texas that lots of Cretaceous shark teeth get washed into from the Eagle Ford Group (shout out to ThePhysicist for clarifying the formation!). However a lot of Pleistocene material gets washed in there as well so you get this lovely set of gravel bars where you're finding stuff like crow shark and goblin shark teeth in the same sift as a bi

    ID help please

    Recovered the below bone from the Peace River a few weeks ago and put it aside thinking it was a partial bird bone or small reptile. On closer examination I can see serrations running along the length of the two sides. This now has me thinking Ray barb. The specimen is 26mm long by 10mm at the wide joint end. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks.

    I found this on Blind Pass Beach in November 2019 Not sure what it is - I thought it looked like a bird wing but not sure. It is 5cm long 3cm wide and weighs 25 kg. Thank you for any help.

    What is this?

    Can anyone tell me what is fossil is? I bought it several years ago from a seller who said he got it from China about 15 years ago. I'm not sure if it is a bird, lizard or something altogether different. It's only 45mm x 25mm. Help!
  16. Hello forum, Recently I went to Walton on the Naze and I found a nodule on the beach that contained many fossil, some quite remarkable containing a shark tooth, scales, bones, fossilized wood and many more things to excavated. At first I was not going to pick it up ,as it was heavy (20lb to be exact). But I was upset to find out that I walked past a large megalodon tooth that someone else picked up. So here I am and now have this lump of rock, I have soak it for some time, to hopefully stop or slowdown pyritization. Now in the next few days I will be starting my prepp

    Richmond Cretaceous oddity

    I have been quiet for a while but, sifting through some matrix from the cretaceous of central Queensland Australia I have come across some small fragments that I suspect to be bits of either a spine (spike) or bone. The bit that has me thrown is there is a distinct grain (striations) appearance on the outer surface that has thrown me. This was found in the same batch as the tarsal so could be a clue or a red herring. Photos of top and underside as well as an end view. Any suggestions appreciated. Tarsel 4.5 mm - longest unknown bit in two sections 18 mm so not large

    Bone Id (If It Is A Bone...)

    Hi, As I described in my trip report last week (http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/56838-kyushu-fukuoka-pref-ashiya-machi-japan/) I went to Ashiya machi and found what looks like to me a bone. The outcrop is from oligocene period and the matrix is made of sandstone. Found fossil were bivalve, shark teeth, and turittella which suggest a sea environment. Could you help me to ID this fossil ? I will say fossil because I do not even know if this is a bone as it would be the first time I found one. I read that at this place was discovered sort of big penguin called Plotopterum

    Long Bone More Simi Valley Ca

    This bone was so fragile there was no getting it out in one piece. So..I can't do any other pictures...it is what it is. Super soft sand and most likely has been dozed over a few times. Figure you pros may recognize it... It is about 7" long north Simi Valley hills Pliocene. Thanks ahead of time!
