  1. The Green River Formation is one of the most well-known fossil sites in the world, occupying present-day Colorado, Utah and Wyoming. This Lagerstätte has been noted for its well-preserved fish fossils, as well as numerous invertebrates, plants, and sometimes even reptiles and birds. Green River fossils are Eocene-aged, at 53.5 to 48.5 million years old. Thankfully, not only are Green River fossils attractive, they also remain affordable to the casual collector. Allow me to present my humble collection. Crocodile tooth Borealosuchus sp. Southwest Wyoming
  2. Hi all! Very new to fossils, but hope to be stickin' around long term! While on a trip to Traverse City, MI this past weekend, I came across what appeared to be an amazing Moroccan crocodile skull fossil specimen (pics attached) at a mineral, fossil, and jewelry shop. The seller agreed to sell it for at a discount with guaranteed authenticity. I excitedly posted it on a fossil subreddit when I got home, and was immediately informed this specimen was an obvious fake from Morocco, and that Moroccan fossils are often fakes. One user specified the skull was likely constructed with san

    Dinosaur Claw from North Carolina ?

    I have found this claw from a site in Eastern North Carolina which has maastrictian and campanian material. Does anyone know if this is dinosaur ? Some dinosaur material has been found here in the past. Or is this crocodile or turtle maybe? It has the blood grooves on each side, unfortunately the tip is broken off. It is slightly hollow with an oval cavity. I tried to capture as much detail as I could with pictures. Thanks for your help.

    Elrhaz Crocodylomorph Fang?

    While I was sorting through my collection of croc fossils, I came across these Elrhaz Formation teeth I bought 6 months ago and never did figure out what they were. I assume they are croc and not some kind of fish, though I could be wrong. I've never seen these apart from the one source I purchased them from. I've been told they were Sarcosuchus, then Kaprosuchus, then Suchomimus. Pretty sure it's not Sarcosuchus, and the images I can find of Kaprosuchus don't seem to match. Suchomimus, I don't know, but my gut feeling is, no, I've seen dozens of Suchomimus and fake-Sucho crocs, an
  5. Hello Fossil Forum Family! The specimen is too partial and small for me to have any confidence in the ID: could it actually be a spino seed tooth and jaw fragment, or is it one of the dozens of crocodile specs in the area (Cretaceous, Moroccan)? Any insight would be much appreciated. Thanks! - Ryan

    Large shells and large owls.

    I decided to go hit up a new creek that I’d had my eyes on for a while. I didn’t know whether or not this would have anything good in it, so I biked there to go find out myself. Let me say, for the 1 1/2 hour I biked to reach this place, I’m really happy with all that I found. I also saw one of the coolest owls I’ve ever seen. It was about 2 and a half feet in size and the color of it was orangish brown and black. I think it was a great horned owl, and it looked like this: It swooped down on a branch about 10 feet in front of me, looked me dead in the eyes,

    Croc tooth or false alarm?

    Again being a newbie to this, I quickly realize that it's not easy to know what you found. This seems like it's a fossil and not geologic - but a tooth? Part of a bone? It measures just under 1" in length. All black. Found on the Potomac River near Montross, Virginia.
  11. So, I've been hunting sharks teeth on and off in South Alabama since a young child. Since my two kids have gotten self sufficient, me and the wife have been taking alot of trips to the river to look for teeth. Finding the normal small teeth, for our area, got me to wondering if there were bigger teeth in our area. That led me to some late nights of researching the ins and outs of my area. The area we are close to has alot of Eocene era fossils and I quickly learned the Carcharocles auriculatus was THE SHARK during this time period. So, my goal became to find a complete tooth in my little honey

    Crocodilian Jaw id

    Hello! My mother found this crocodilian jawbone a while ago, and I was wondering if any of you could identify which species it belongs to. It comes from the Miocene of Ruwais, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.
  13. Hi everyone I came across this box of marine reptile teeth from: Age 200 million/Rhaetic bone bed. I don't have the measurements of the fossils unfortunately, but do anyone see plesiosaur and ichthyosaur teeth here? I'd love it if there's pliosaur but probably not..

    The great (crocodile) tooth identification game

    Some time ago I came across this seller selling a lot of pliosaur teeth without provenance, most of which can be attributed to misidentified teeth of Zarafasaura oceanis, the elasmosaurid of the Moroccan phosphates. However, amongst these same teeth, I also came across the below few of teeth that I'm having difficulty identifying. Tooth 5 is obviously a mosasaurid tooth from the Ouled Abdoun basin and probably belongs to Eremiasaurus heterodontus; tooth 1 seems to originate in the Kem Kem; and I suspect there are at least a few crocodile teeth amongst the rest (at least tooth 4). But I've grow

    Jurassic crocodile from Morocco?

    I see some good teeth with ID "Jurassic crocodile" from Boulmane, Morocco (El Mers Group) - Atlas Mountain and age 170 million years. I can't find any article about jurassic crocodiles from this location. Is the ID real or these teeth are just Goniopholis from Morrison or other common croc?

    Greens Mill Run Mosasaur or Croc tooth?

    Just went on a trip to Greens Mill Run yesterday and recovered this tooth. Is it crocodilian or a mosasaur tooth? Thanks!
  17. I’ve made several trips to Greens Mill Run recently, lots of shark teeth and belemnites, large intact scallops and clams, large whale ribs and jaw bones and ear bones. However I have 3 fossils I cannot identify. Some pics are below: The top tooth is either mosasaur or crocodile, not sure which. The other two, I’m clueless. Any help would be appreciated!

    Possible Gator tooth

    I believe this is a crocodile or alligator tooth but it's much larger than the ones that I have or that I have seen. Is that what I have?
  20. What kind of crocodile do you think it is? Alligator, Caiman, or another crocodile? The material is from the Mexican Pleistocene, I will not say location to avoid biogeographic influence

    Are these tracks??

    My husband purchased this landscaping rock in a pallet from a Bath/Bethlehem, PA area supplier about 20 years ago. Most of the supplier’s stones are from Pennsylvania. I’m guessing this is sandstone??? I’ve been staring at this rock for sometime and before I place it back, I wanted to get some opinions if anyone sees any type of tracks on this rock? I feel like my fingers fit in the specimen very nicely. Can’t tell if I’m seeing 3, 4 or 5 “toes” ? Maybe I’m just an imaginative newbie. Thanking anyone in advance who looks at these photos.
  22. Found this today at calvert cliffs. The only things I could think of that it could be were a juvenile porpoise or crocodile tooth. Anyone have any thoughts?

  24. Hi everyone, I found this at Ramanessin Brook today. I thought it resembled the crocodile scutes that can be found here but I've never seen one in person and I know that concretions can do really tricky things so I'm not sure. Thoughts?
