    Please ID these!

    I am pretty sure these are claws, but I am not at all sure. The first one had a tip ,like the drawn lines indicate, but some jerk broke it off. Doesn’t down the shaft on the last one look like Fluking?

  4. All 3 claws were found in the Scollard formation (Second one is possibly horseshoe canyon, but more likely scollard).

    Arkansas find

    Hi guys, Thanks for your help. This was found in an Arkansas cave, where there was a lot of bones, and a lot of Indian artifacts. The inside is porous and seems to be somewhat of a bone / calcium deposit I'm not sure. Please help me identify this. It doesn't feel like a rock at all, and there's also a big piece that looks like a vertebra, kind of crystallized, that was found with this.

    A fantastic Christmas present

    Sharing the joy. I went hunting with friends on the Peace River today. It has been a while since the last time and we decided to check out a location that had significant fossils 10 years ago and was remote. We were prospecting... stopping frequently to probe for rock, I had found a small calcaneum, a couple of tapir caps, and then we moved on to the site none of us had hunted in 10 years. In my 1st sieve, it is 79 mm long. Over the last 10 years I have found a lot of Sloth fossils, most commonly Megalonyx jeffersoni, Paramylodon harlani, and once Megalonyx lepto
  7. Found this tooth/spike/claw/antler in Van Zandt county Texas. It was found amongst petrified wood similar in color. The piece is of similar feel and weight as petrified wood. The petrified wood context is of the Wilcox Group (Eocene). Attached are pictures for identification. Anyone have any idea what this is?

    Not sure from Northern NJ brook

    A little perplexed on this one. I’m guessing ghost shrimp claw perhaps? Found near Ramenessin while sifting. Tooth of some sort maybe? I’m open to options but for now thinking claw.

    Attempt at Dino displays

    Decided to attempt some DIY Dino displays today. Happy with how they turned out - as long as my three year old doesn’t get ahold of them. I’m going to try the claw mount with some natural wood, maybe beach wood, in the future and spend a bit more time on it - but the first try worked out somewhat. All personal Montana finds with my buddy and my 12 year old daughter. All teeth are 100% natural except the largest brown one which has some minor repair, and the claws which have tip repair. also - I get that the tarsal bone (?) doesn’t fit the claw, but I’m no purist - and not that sma
  10. I am attaching photos of a fossil found in a cold water spring in Texas, that I call the Luvasourus. You cannot really see everything in these pictures. The location in Texas where it was found (along with many others) is a spring with a water temp below 65 degrees. It is unique for Texas, and no one has ever seen anything quite like this. It has been reviewed by three Universities in Texas, a Paleontologist, and several others. At this point I have been told it is probably pre-dinosaur, possibly petrified, possibly a species of Brighstoneus, or even the claw of a raptor, and baby T-rex.

    Crab Claw Switzerland?

    Hello, Went fossil hunting in a famous Swiss Jurassic Location, the quarry of Liesberg. While cracking some rocks found what seems to be a crab claw. Can anyone help me identifying it? I was not aware such fossils could be found there, is it common or rather rare? Thank you! Cheers, Romain
  12. Hello to all, I encountered this piece among a gravel bed at low tide on a beach along the West coast of South Africa, close to Cape Town. A location where fossilized shark teeth, marine mammal bones and vertebrae from the Miocene are found alongside Pleistocene fossils like horse teeth and mammoth tooth fragments. Unfortunately, this piece is not very well preserved owing to the relentless waters of the Cape. I'd be thrilled to know if anybody could assist with an ID, and if so, point to any diagnostic features. Scale bar is in cm. Thanks to anyone having a look.

    Ganzhou claw

    Hi, Any help with a claw, from Ganzhou, Nanxiong Formation? I hope to have better pics incoming and measurements soon. Thanks

    Possible Claw

    So, I am scanning a sieve for small fossils and up pops this fossil. At a minimum, it is the tip of a long bone, but there is the possibility for more. Two things got my attention.. The texture is not common for bone. and the break (last photo) seems suggestive of claw . Your thoughts... bone, rock, claw ?

    Fossil claw or tooth

    Hello, I’m new to this site. I found this fossil in my backyard. Is it a claw or bone? thank you for your help in advance !!!! Emilie
  16. Hi everyone, would like to ask what you guys think of this labelled “Nanotyrannus Foot Claw”? Never really seen Nanotyrannus claws on the market so have no idea how to distinguish between other tyrannosaurs. And does the coat/ layer also look too thick? Almost looks like varnish? Unless its just their lighting that makes it too glossy. Thanks guys

    Judith river claws?

    Found in the Judith river formation along the milk river. They seem to be a few claws, but unsure about the dark one that’s super hollow as well as the first one that seems to be a bit more uniquely shaped than I’m used to finding. I thought croc claw at first based off what we were finding in the area - but who knows. All three are about an inch long. thanks for the help. Deciding if they’d be worth restoring or not. sorry for the slight mix and match on the photo order
  19. Hi, My name is Satoshi. I want to study Spinosaurus fossils. I think this fossil is not fake and high quality.But,very little. What do you think, guys? Please help. Thank you very much.

    Dinosaur claw?

    I bought a dinosaur claw from Liaoning. I guess it is a Psittacosaurus claw. Do you have any opinions?

  23. Dear All, I am a newbie in fossil collection and I would like to purchase a claw. I found these two Spinosaur Claw? Do you guys see any red flags? Are they real? Thank you in advance
  24. I was out goofing around in the Texas Pleistocene recently and bumped into this Paramylodon claw. The tip was missing, but still a rare find. Rare enough to warrant an attempt at restoration, although I don't have much experience in creating faux bone.
  25. Hi, I'm new here. My name is Satoshi. I'm afraid this fossil is not genuine. Please help. Thank you very much.
