    Is this a vertebra or something else?

    Found what might be a vertebra yesterday- let me know what yall think with these photos! It looks like it’s about 2 and a half inches tall, or about 6.35 centimeters. It looks like it’s 2.56 centimeters long. Both are just my closest estimates, so take them with a grain of salt-

    Mosasaurs #5

    Hi guys got a few more for idenitification thanks for your help 1. this was broken in shipment and is completely hollow even the root is this normal? The rounded cross section makes me think T.atrox 2. slightly more compressed, eramiasaurus? 3. gavialiminus? 4. another gavialiminus, any idea why both of these are so compressed? Preservation?

    Very unusual microfossils

    Hello everyone, Following the previous posts about other fossils found in the same marine upper cretaceous sediment (campanian), here are two very intriguing finds I could not classify at all. Does anybody know what they may represent?
  4. Looks like a fossil vertebra? Any one know who it goes to etc. first dino or shark cartilage/bone if so!!!!! found in Arlington Texas at construction site in layer with gypsum and few Cretaceous aquatic shell fossils and one shark tooth. It is pretty brittle etc. will epoxy soon after positive id. I’ll post a pic of shark tooth also.

    Can’t figure this one out

    I found this in a creek near Glen Rose TX. It’s supposedly from the Glen Rose Formation and would be considered the Cretaceous period. If anyone one knows what it is that would be nice to put a name to it. It is 5 cm length and 6 cm height wise. Thanks!
  6. Hi! Please help me ID these fossils. I believe the first one is crocodile tooth but not sure of the other 3. Thanks!!

    Various fossils/possible fossils

    Various fossils/possibly contain fossils. From the Coleraine formation of northern Minnesota, mostly ironstone, I think, but one is in mudstone.
  8. Any thoughts appreciated. Can't find anything that looks like this found in Big Brook NJ. End seems too round to be in pincher? I know this is a stretch prob but the only thing I found remotely like it online was a pic of a baby Mosasaur jaw fragment. Thanks!!
  9. #1. Not sure age #2. Not sure age #3. Pliocene/miocene #4. Pliocene/miocene #5. Not sure age #6. Not sure age #7. Not sure age #8. I believe Cretaceous?

    Texas Shark Teeth

    Can anyone help me ID these two shark teeth, they are from Texas so that might help limit options.

  12. Recently visited the Green Mill Run area in NC and found some fossils that thought would peak some interest but need the help of identification. I know the site can have a bit Cretaceous but also Eocene and Pliocene, so it can make it harder to identify things. The first one I assume might be crocodylian or maybe turtle, not sure. Those thick grooves make me think maybe crocodylian. The second seems like, from looking at the root base, a possible theropod tooth? I thought maybe claw of a turtle, but seeing that thick base makes me think otherwise. Lastly fou

    4 Mosasaur Verts in a Day! Austin TX

    With the end of the semester approaching, school has picked up and I have been too busy to embark on many adventures. When my schedule finally cleared up one afternoon following a brief rain in Austin, I jumped at the opportunity to do a bit of exploring. One of my goals right now is to check out new parts of the creek I hunt on. Scanning through my list of potential spots, I decided to try and be the first one out to a very promising location. Like my previous hunts, this place ran through the Ozan formation, so my expectations were set on some nice Cretaceous specimens as well as the usual n

    Cretaceous Print?

    Hey y’all! Can anyone help me ID this print? I’m a marine reptile researcher so I’m at the end of my understanding of prints for this. It was found in Bell County, Texas. Thanks so much!

    Austin Chalk Mosasaur Fossil ??

    I found this rock in Austin, TX in Waller Creek next to an exposed outcrop of the Maastrichtian (Late Cretaceous) Austin Chalk. I’m wondering if it’s a mosasaur vertebra or humerus? Several mosasaurs have been found in creeks nearby, and the wavy pattern in the rock reminds me of fossilized bone. I’ve included three photos of the rock that I found in Austin, and a photo from Otero et al. (2016) of a Maastrichtian mosasaur right humerus (scale bar = 50 mm) that looks similar.

    NJ Fossils

    I did some surface hunting around the Big Brook region of New Jersey, came away with some nice finds but lots of questions. I did my best to guess from photos online, but would love a second opinion, and some of these I really just have no idea... maybe a worn mosasaur tooth? A fragment of sea turtle shell... or just a shell? A claw or small tooth from some sort of mammal? The last almost looks modern by the color but is fossilized behind (see final photo).

    Potential T. Rex Bone?

    I found this bone on a fossil hunting trip in North Dakota, it was identified as a theropod, probably a T. Rex. Can anyone verify this claim? Thanks for any responces! (The ruler is mesuring in centimeters)
  19. Given the success I had in the White River fm. the week before, my third and final outing of the summer was just icing on the cake to an already phenomenal fossil hunting session. But what I would come to find is that this figurative cake would be getting a massive dose of that sugary goodness, and man it felt sweet. This time around I would be joined by my best friend Michael (@Mickeyb06)who would be taking on his first ever fossil hunting adventure in Wyoming's Lance fm. While it wasn't my intention for this to be his first experience in the field, we made the most of it and it was gre
  20. So, I'm not sure where this rock is from or when, there is cretaceous to Precambrian rock in the area and it's all buried under glacial debris. I've been removing this thing from the rock, the other pictures may be clues as to what this is?
  21. During one of my hikes exploring the badlands in Central Alberta Canada (Scollard formation) near the Red Deer river I found this strange flat & thin piece of what appears to be fossilized bone. As you can see from the pictures it fans outward and it's quite thin, to me it almost looks similar to a aquatic flipper although I obviously am not sure at all what this could be. My instinct wants to say turtle piece possibly? Any help to ID this cool fossil would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!
  22. Hello everyone! Been long time I haven't done anything fossil wise due to weather and work obligations. Yet this weekend I went to NW Bulgaria checking a lower Cretaceous spot. As per the map its Berriasian to Hauterivian. I started cleaning slowly and found out its a spiky type. Any direction towards species, so that I know approximately its shape and don't mess up cleaning? It's small in size, the visible part being 1 1/2".

    help with cretaceous unknown

    two unknowns that i would like help with from early cretaceous arundel formation in maryland one large one small. The large piece is ironstone that looks like it formed around a series of reeds or stems. The photo shows it sitting on a 8 by 10 inch notepad. It itself is approximately 12 by 4 inches. The smaller piece is a thin section of ironstone with a oval section of stone/tooth/bone 1.5 cm by 1 cm with a dense cortex and a web like internal structure . ID, Ideas and suggestions are welcome
  24. Creek - Don

    Unknown shells

    What is this? I found these pieces next to a creek on duck creek formation nearby Lake Texoma. It appears to be a shell, but doesn't look like any other shells I found elsewhere.
  25. Hello Would anyone have a suggestion what this could be? It's a cross section from a split rock. Isle of Wight, UK. Conglomerate between Chilton Chine and Brook Bay. Definitely bone. Very thin bone in most places. 6.5 cm long, 6 cm wide. It has been suggested that it is skull material. It will be a tricky prep with my limited experience, but if anyone could suggest what i could be, it could help with knowing where to start. Thanks in advance Henry
