    Unknown Small bone

    Hello All I have found this small bone in marine Cretaceous material from NW Queensland. It is very small less than 5mm long it doesn't appear to be fish in nature( could be wrong thou) and seems very small to be turtle. Does anyone have any thoughts? Update thanks to some great help it now appears that this is a small turtle phalange. Cheers

    fossil or modern bone?

    is this a fossilized bone? it appears to be but am on the fence. Found in gravel from the Brazos river here just west of Houston Texas.
  3. Found this at the weekend on Charmouth beach, the black flakes look like scales or possibly bone. We looked at hundreds of bits that morning but nothing else like this, any ideas?
  4. Hello, I'm interested to know if there's any way to narrow down what kind of animal this fossil is from? My dad tells me it was given to him by my great grandmother, who likely purchased it from a university in Western South Dakota in the 1940s or 50s. Our assumption is that it would have been discovered in that area, around that time. The fossil is about 4" x 1.5". I think it's so cool, but beyond guessing that it's "a bone" from "an animal that had bones," I'm at a loss. Thanks for any help!

    Can you help ID this

    Found in Indiana - it is very heavy. Looks like a femoral head of something. Has what appear to be the femoral condyls (broken off) in front, spongy bone in back and medial ligament attachments on the side.

    Microscope enlargement

    Hello! I tried to look at a texture of a rock under a microscope to see if it's a fossil and I realised that I have no idea what's the right enlargement to see the unick texture that bones have. If anyone knows what is the right enlargement to see the texture of a bone under a microscope please tell me.
  7. Hi, new here and looking for some help please. This was found at Aust Cliff bone beds, sorry no scale but its close to 40mm wide at the base. Can anyone help identify what it is please? Thanks, Chris

    Beach-combing in Florida

    I’ve been finding some interesting pieces on the beaches of NE Florida. New to the area and wasn’t really targeting anything in particular but found a piece of bone and now I’m a bit hooked. Here are a few items. The encased shark tooth is particularly interesting. The white, circular bone may be modern. Not certain about what appears to be a shark vertebrae (center top). Posted the “stem” in the ID forum.
  9. Possible tooth or bone From the Top of the New Albany Shale, Floyd County Indiana. Found by splitting nodules. The 2 micro photos are detail of the texture, it appears there was a void between the dark areas of the 2 halves. In closer inspection it appears the tip is more pointed and folded under itself. Any Ideas? Thanks.

    Dino tooth?

    I got this in a collection with out any info on it. It looks like there is a tooth embedded in the bone. Just checking to see what you think.

    What part is this bone fossil?

    This fossil came from the Hell Creek Formation, and I don't know what part or what kind of dinosaur it is, so I ask a question. thank you!
  14. Found a large chunk of bone in a creek near Summerville where I find mostly Oligocene fossils, but a few megs as well. I'm guessing there is no way to identify it, but thought I would ask since it's a unique shape. I have found shark, bony fish, gator and cetacean fossils there. Approximately 5.5 x 6 inches. Thank you!

    Any ideas?

    Hello, I hope that I've done this right. To my very untrained eye this looks like a bone. It is: L-5.5 in. W, at the knob 2.5in It weighs 523g. I found it, along with several other items, at a rather large construction site in South Central Alaska. There were quite a few items that I found interesting. Any help that you may off is greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time.

  17. Does anyone know what this might be inside of this limestone? Found at Maskuta Creek, Alberta, a stream connected to the MacLeod River 4 km from Drinnan in the Hinton Valley

    Identify dino bones

    In fact, I found that bones are much more difficult to identify than teeth. I regret buying dinosaur bones. I have three materials here for you to give some suggestions. I hope to get the correct identification. After all, it's no good to cheat yourself. Thank you for any comments (The following information is the only one I know. There is always no location ) Hadrosaurs vertebral column From Judith River FM Montana Spinosaurus From Kemkem Group Camptosaurus(Phalanges?) Jurassic Age Morrison FM Wyoming
  20. Hi, I am not an expert, so I decided to ask for help in this forum. My Dream is to buy real fossils so I found a website with some interesting fossils, a keichosaurus and three Megalodon teeth. Can you help me to recognise if they are real fossils or not? thank you very much!
  21. I picked it up and began cleaning it because it looked odd. The first picture is after several soakings in vinegar and scrubbing with a tooth brush, but I got a bit impatient and began using sand paper to gently rub the coating away. It is starting to show a dark brownish color which shows up much better when the specimen is wet, which is why in the other pictures it is wet. It looks like it could be a bone, but then again, I know nature can craft some pretty amazing things as well. Originally this was about 6 inches (15.24 cm) long, but in keeping with the fact that I do not know what I am do

    Rock or fossil! You be the judge

    Hello there! Found this in North Myrtle beach and can't quite put my finger on what it could be. Interesting pieces once you look closely, I'd love anyone's take on this! Thanks in advance for any information.
  23. Not sure what this is could not find my measuring tape but am estimating it to be about a little longer than an inch.
  24. Hi, I would like to buy this fossil, but I don’t know if it is a real fossil because I am not expert, it is a spinosaurus claw. can you please help me ? thank you very much
  25. Came across this fossilized bone along a lake shore in central Colorado, a little southeast of the Denver metro area, and was hoping you all could help ID it. My initial thoughts were that it belonged to a prehistoric mammal of some kind but I have very little experience identifying specimens like this.. Also, I'm not sure if this is useful information or not since it was found in the sand by the water's edge, but petrified wood fragments were scattered around the area as well. Any posits will be much appreciated, thank you!
