    Where are all the British mosasaurs?

    Hi all, While I'm aware that current Cretaceous exposures in Britain are largely restricted to the south and east coasts of the islands (see geological map below; source), significant marine deposition is said to have taken place across much of Great Britain from the Aptian onward (source). As such - and especially considering the richness of the record of the marine ecosystem during the Jurassic- one would expect an abundance of marine reptile remains to be known from British Late Cretaceous sediments as well, the epitome of which, of course, would be the
  2. As the title says. Perhaps a few members could meet up in central MS for a little show and tell, a little switch and swap, some coffee and introductions, etc. Maybe on a Sunday afternoon? Just a friendly, low stress meet and greet. Anyone interested?

    Pennsylvanian Bone or Just Stone?

    I found this on the bank of a stream near Pittsburgh. It looks to me like bone, but perhaps I'm imagining things. It's rather light and I can tell you the stream is part of the Conemaugh Group, Glenshaw Formation and Pennsylvanian/Carboniferous period. Any help is appreciated. (Last pic has the scale.)
  4. Dear All ,would you advice with this fossil ID ..one of them weight 5.4 kg
  5. Here are my best guesses on the sharks teeth (1st 9 pics): (1) Hemipristis serra uppers pretty sure (2) all gray sharks? (3) tiger? (4) and (6) lemon/lower gray/others? (5) tiger-like? (7) ray (8) ??? (9) & (10) may include a major and lower snaggletooth but mostly stumped (11) most sand tiger with maybe a lower snaggletooth? (12) upper great white and 2nd is maybe an upper narrow or giant white because no serrations? (13) may not be able t

    pterosaur bones (perhaps Dorygnathus)

    From the album: Holzmaden

    This is probably one of my best find so far from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden. Its a plate with some pterosaur bones, which is very rare in Holzmaden as these are marine desposits. The bigger bone might be a Humerus. Before I was able to find this piece I only found a few isolated pterosaur bones. Hopefully I can find a complete one one day The prep of this specimen took about 5 hours. Before the prep it was visible that these are pterosaur bones so I was very surprised ... Some more pictures:

    My Collection

    Hi everyone on Fossil Forum, I am pretty new to fossil collection but I have decided to post what I have currently collected and will continue to update this page with new fossils that I acquire over time. I am now looking to acquire rarer teeth now! Details of Specimen: Triceratops Tooth Hell Creek Formation, Carter County, Montana Late Cretaceous Period (65 Million Years Old) Measurements: 1.5 inches long x 3/4 inch wide x5/8 inch thick Weight: 8.9 Grams No restoration at all. all natural specimen. I love the way this looks and its huge!
  8. I have seen this for sale, however the seller states that they don’t know if it is real or a replica. I’m thinking it might be worth taking a risk on, but the air bubbles in the bottom are a red flag. It’s clearly another layer to the top so I suppose it could just be something added to the fossil to strengthen the piece. I’m also thinking that such a piece wouldn’t usually be worth making a replica of. What are your thoughts on this; worth the risk at a low price?
  9. I have a collection of 22 Hell Creek Vertebrae, and I have no idea what any of them are.
  10. Hello all, This is another fossil found at Fort Funston a few weeks ago on the beach below the cliffs. It appears to be a bone and I have a few ideas but I'm eagerly looking forward to input. I believe this is the Merced Formation, Pliocene. Thanks again in advance.

    Two bones

    Two Fragmentosaurus type bones ... but perhaps one of these two has something identifiable feature
  12. I found this rock a few years ago buried in the ground. She looks like a hip. The rock weighs about 2-3 pounds and is the size of an adult hand. You can see scratches on it (as if someone had scratched it with a sharp knife). There are also small holes (see photo) and the rock is red/orange in color inside these cavities. I think it's a fossil, but I don't know much about it. Ideas ?
  13. Last week I stumbled upon a deposit that might be yielding a bit more. Several bone fragments, a vertebrae (I think), lots of boney plate material, and a small tarsal bone. I have collected this area for years an never found as much in one spot as I did last week. Going back with proper tools for looking further. Wish me luck.
  14. Today @PFOOLEY and I went behind the scenes at the NMMNH&S. Thanks to Dr. Spencer G. Lucas for letting us in and showing us some amazing specimens. We started with some heteromorphs... ....donated from Utah There were other ammonites... We then ventured into the other room full of goodies... ...this Parasaurolophus.. See it? Some plant fossils...
  15. I'm not sure if I've come to the right place but I found this during a walk today and I am unsure of what it could be. Can anyone help? Thank you.

    Lance Formation Dinosaur Bones ID

    For Christmas, I'd gotten a box of matrix from the Lance formation. I have some fossils that I am not sure what they are and would like to get your opinions. All of these fossils are from the Lance formation of Weston Co. WY. The first one is I think a theropod ungual, missing both the distal and proximal ends. Here are the pictures. The second one I'm pretty sure is a partial Edmontosaurus metacarpal. The The third one might be a ornithischian ungual. And here is the final one, I think that it might be a jaw section.
  17. I posted this originally in the “questions and answers” forum, but I think it fits better under fossil hunting trips since it discusses finds: What are some of the best fossil bones people have dug out of the Aurora Fossil Museum Pungo River dig pits? The actual reject pile DIG PITS, not the mine before it closed. There are some nice fossils to be found there, but I’m curious if anyone has ever managed to find for example a complete rib, or a vert. with all its processes, or a full-on cetacean jaw bone, or by some miracle an entire skull. Most fossils from the pits are somewhat beat up
  18. Hey guys, I have a special creek site close to me in South Florida. it yields marine fossils of every kind and even some artifacts. I have found many pieces of dugong bone with a strange circular indentation, and I’m really hoping someone can help me out with determining what causes this? I have found fossils of a huge variety of Pliocene/Miocene marine animals, and dugong bones are the only bones with such markings. There is a raised center and an almost perfect circular depression around it.
  19. Hello everybody, I'm sorry for making thread about ID mixed fossil types,but I didn't want to open multiple threads for such a small specimens as they aren't something ''special'',but small specimens that I would like to properly ID. They were bought from one small fossil shop that sells fossils,meteorites,amber,dinosaur teeth and those kind of things. They are fairly small shop,but they have nice collection of small affordable fossils for sale. I bought them years ago and I always wanted to get proper ID of them,but my camera wasn't good at the time and I always ha

    Identification help needed pls

    Can anyone identify any of these bones found by my 7 year old at Wapping pls? We went to look for the gallows at the Prospect of Whitby pub and literally stumbled upon these. She’s very excited to find out what they belonged to and has taken some to school today! We are thinking cow or horse due to sheer size and weight. Thank you ..

    Bone with odd shape?

    Really odd shape from Calvert formation of Virginia/Maryland. Any idea what kind of bone or what it’s from?

    Stratford hall bones

    Dromaeosaur bones question

    I am doing some research on dromaeosaur bones, and I only found limited data and pictures on the web. I am particularly looking for caudal vertebrae and ribs pictures and structures. So I make an attempt towards TFF members knowledge and data !

    Some bones from Mistelgau

    Recently I visited a clay pit near Mistelgau in Bavaria. It's a kinda famous quarry because of the "belemnite battle field". Huge plates with hundreds/thousands belemnites come from there. But you can also findother fossils like ammonites and also bones. I already was there a few times and I mainly found ammonites and of course belemnites. But this time I also found some bones in the area of the Belemnite battle field. They were just laying therebut it was kinda difficult to find them because they are round, Belemnites are round etc. so I more or less crawled through the quarry
