    Kem Kem dino bones

    Hello fossil lovers, i bought those bones at Sainte-Marie-aux-mines and i need help for identification. All are from Kem Kem. 1 : I think an abelisauroïd (?Noasaurid) cervical but i need confirmation. 2 : no idea about this vert. 3 : distal caudal vert but no idea for the identification. Croc ? Dino ? 4 : Spinosaurid mid-cervical vert but i need to know the exact position

    Any idea what hadrosaur this is from?

    Identified by a palaeontologist as a hadrosaur vertebra and I would like to get some clarification. It’s 3-4 inches long and 2-2.5 inches wide. Found in Horseshoe Canyon Alberta.
  5. I have no experience identifying fossils/bones, but while hiking near the Olentangy River recently, in Franklin County, Ohio, USA, I noticed what appeared to be a "thumb" consisting of three bones that appeared to have recently been uncovered as the dirt and debris surrounding the area where I noticed it was slightly disturbed. I've taken a series of pictures of it, and it appears to be possibly a thumb-like appendage, but the end bone is triangular and somewhat resembles a shark tooth. Curious if anybody may be able to identify what these bones may belong to, as I haven't the slightest clue.

    Help me ID a few items, please :)

    Hi again! I have a few pieces I need help with. Some of them I'm sure they are fossils, other not so much. All of them found in Maryland and Virginia (US) by the water. Thank you so much beforehand!!! PD - Sorry about my 'useless' coin but I don't have a printer or a measuring tape. The coin is 1 inch / 2.5 cm 1 - maybe some skin? 2 - bone, any ideas of what it might be? 3 - This one I don't know whether it is a fossil or not. 4 - I think this is just a fun
  8. I’m pretty new to fossils—I have found a few strays before. But the other day, I found what appears to be an entire fossil bed. It’s about a 150 square foot area, full of fossils, on a hillside ridge near the Whetstone Mountains, outside of Tucson, AZ. I don’t know if this sort of find is very common. But there is a layer with what I think are marine fossils—hundreds and hundreds of seashells. And then about 50 feet in elevation above that layer are what appears to be long bone fossils. Dozens and dozens of them. Most are about as thick as my fingers and the longest are about 18 inche
  9. 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.

    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

    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.)
  12. Dear All ,would you advice with this fossil ID ..one of them weight 5.4 kg
  13. 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:
  15. 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?
  16. I have a collection of 22 Hell Creek Vertebrae, and I have no idea what any of them are.

    Unknown Fish Skeleton

    I'm trying to identify this fish skeleton. It's clearly some sort of RAM feeder, but beyond that I've yet to find something with the single dorsal fin. Can anyone help me out with this? Sorry about the small picture, I cannot make it bigger for some reason.
  18. 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
  20. 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 ?
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  24. 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
