    Crocodilian, Turtle, or Both?

    I recently acquired a bunch of matrix from the Cloverly Formation of Carbon County, Montana. And came across a few scutes. I’m not fully sure if they are turtle, crocodile, or maybe both, which is why I thought I’d share them here.
  4. I've been trying to do some research about actual gator scutes not ostoderms that we call scutes. I know that Dino skin can be found so can croc also? Would love to hear about this subject and see some great photos if possible too please!

    Fossilized Skin?

    I found this fossil in a pallet of rocks I got for landscaping. The rock came out of the Arkansas river. When you stick your tongue to it, it sticks as a bone would. I think it looks like reptilian skin. Could anybody help me out?

    Crocodile Jaws?

    The museum gift shop I work in has this labeled as "Crocodile Jaw Fossil". Is it? It's from the previous manager who was notorious for mislabeled fossils. Appears to be remounted on Moroccan material. Please help!

    FBI return Croc Skull to Morocco.

    From Morocco World News. https://www.moroccoworldnews.com/2022/02/347019/fbi-art-crime-team-returns-fossilized-crocodile-skull-to-morocco So be careful. Buying fakes is fine, but buying a real one might get you into hot water.
  13. I bought this tooth together with two other teeth as ''Smilodon teeth'' last year. Thanks to this forum, I found out that the other two teeth are actually Enchodus teeth! I think this one might be something else. Someone on Reddit told me that it could be a crocodile tooth, but I have little to no knowledge about crocodile teeth. I understand if it's difficult to identify, because the tooth isn't complete. It's 2cm and the seller couldn't give me information about where this was found. Any help is appreciated, thanks!

    Partial tooth: Spinosaurid or...?

    Hi all. I know this is not a great tooth by any standard. But to be honest, I do like how it shows its age. Also, it emphasizes how well preserved my other teeth are. And it is nice and chunky! The tooth has lost some of the features to make an accurate ID. Still, it looks Spinosaurid to me. Could it possibly be something else? It is 7 cm long and from the Kem Kem beds. Thanks!
  15. I went out hunting the Peace River yesterday. Spent a couple of hours with so-so results and because I was close to a favored location that has always been more Pliocene (lots of marine), than Pleistocene (few/no mammal fossils), I decided to spend 3 hours there. It's primary attraction are small pretty shark teeth. On the right are morning finds and on the left, one of my favorite hunting locations. On the left are dugong rib fossils, very dense, and not the typical Peace River black color. So , Let walk thru some of the many finds. I love the tiny upper Hemi teet

    Crocodile Jaw

    I got this partial crocodile Jaw. All the dealer said was that it was from the U.S.
  21. 3 Sarcosuchus teeth with a Certificate. Formation: Erlhaz Fm. Location: Tenere-Woestijn, Niger. Biggest is 3,2 cm Looking for a Megalodon or Mastodon tooth.
  22. I found these crocodile teeth from Khouribga, Morocco, Phosphate Beds. But not any info about the age. The Khouribga phosphates is Upper Cretaceous-Eocene. Anyone that knows the possible age? There are some crocodile teeth & a jaw. Are they also real without any restoration? I thought about buying them. Or should I pass?

    Hello I am considering getting this set of Deinosuchus teeth. 37 teeth. They are from Chattahoochee River region, Bullock County, Alabama, USA. With the formation given as Ripley Now, looking online, it doesn't show Deinosuchus as being from there. But I do see teeth sold elsewhere as Deinosuchus from the Chattahoochee River. They were also apparently found in a dive along with David. R Scwimmer, who wrote a book on Deinosuchus. The largest is 27mm the smallest 10mm. If someone can take a look, that would be great.

    croc scute

    Hello again! I found this bone in the Boulonnais, North of France, late Jurrassic sediments. I think it's a crocodile scute (like steneosaurus) but with some doubt because it looks a bit different. It's also slightly curved and about 3 x 3 cm. Regards, Niels

    Suchomimus or croc?

    Hi all, I'm quite certain this is suchomimus, but just to be sure, what say people here? The base has the elongated shape of suchomimus, and it has carinae on both sides as far as I can tell @Troodon
