    Marine reptile tooth ID Lyme Regis

    Hi all, Bought this tooth online a while back. It was sold to me as "Ichthyosaurus platyodon" (which I understand to mean Temnodontosaurus platyodon) from Lyme Regis. Likely found by the seller themselves, as I know they occasionally collect fossils there. However, for the following reasons, I'm not sure about this attribution: Overall, the tooth doesn't look like your typical ichthyosaur tooth to me: It has more of an oval rather than round cross-section It's labolingually flattened Messial and distal carinae run the full length of the cr

    Croc or dino? Tiouraren formation, Niger

    Here is a tooth, 4.7 cm long. It's listed as being from the tiouraren formation, but i know things can get mixed between elrhaz and tiouraren. The tooth is listed as afrovenator, bit it looks a bit croc like to me.. it's quite worn and i think i see serrations on the distal end, but I'd like another opinion @Troodon

    Kem kem beds vertebrae

    Hello everyone, I purchased a set of two vertebrae from the kem kem beds. (For a very small amount)The seller was honest in stating that he did not know what they are. He said possibly reptilian but was not certain. So its either turtle, crocodile or even dinosaur? Already thanks for any reply and comments. With best regards, Dirk

    Kimmeridgian marine reptile jaw fragment

    Listed in a sales site is this fossil. It's from the kimmeridgian and measures 3.4 * 4.4 cm long. The seller listed it as a possible marine crocodile, but is it possible it's plesiosaur due to the striations? @pachy-pleuro-whatnot-odon
  6. I have been collecting the Aquia formation in several different locations over the course of a few months or so. I haven’t been able to post the finds yet, so I decided that after all this time, I would just group them all into one rather than do a bunch of different posts. The locations I got these from were pg county, and Douglas point. I found a lot of really good stuff, it’s been very productive lately and I’m especially loving the new site in pg county. A lot of good fossils have been coming out of there recently. I am really excited for some of the future trips coming up, but until then,

    Turtle claw? Croc? Hell creek formation

    I purchased this claw as a Struthuiomimus claw, it was advertised as such. I later on realized it's probably a turtle claw however.. it's from the hell creek formation What do people here think? It's 4.5 cm long @Troodon

    Lesofprimus Fossil Collection

    Here are a few photos of my entire collection spread out in my living room between 3 seperate tables and separated by groups; Table #1 Crocodilians, Theropod Dinosaurs, Marine Mammals and Marine Reptiles. Table #2 77 Different Shark Teeth Species. Table #3 Amphibians and Reptiles, Miscellaneous Fossils and Fish.

    The Creekend Warrior Collection

    Been at it for about a year now and I try to hit the creeks at least twice/month if I can help it. The "loose" pics are either newer finds that haven't made their way into the display yet, or finds that have their own display. Most of these were rescued from the Gainesville area. Some are from the Peace River & Joshua Creek, as well as Manasota, Caspersen, Venice & Fort Clinch beaches. I was also lucky enough to discover a previously unknown spot VERY close to home, while scouting one day! Dr. Hulbert (w/ UF) confirmed it is a new spot, but was reluctant to c

    Kem Kem Vertebrae ID (Croc/Dino?)

    Looking for a little help identifying some small Kem Kem vertebrae. I have some ideas as to what they might be, but I'm sure I'll be corrected. Hopefully the answers will prove useful to anyone else trying to identify Kem Kem verts too! So here's what I think these are: Vert 1: Small theropod, possibly a juvenile spino? (or maybe crocodile) Vert 2: Crocodile Vert 3: Crocodile? Vert 4: Theropod dinosaur Vert 5: Theropod dinosaur (looked a little similar to an Abelisaur vertebra I've come across on the forum before)
  11. I noticed the fossils of more 'modern' reptiles are not commonly shown/displayed (partly because I think they are fairly common in the U.S. and not viewed as too spectacular), so I thought we might do so here. I'd love to see your croc/alligator and turtle material, especially from various locations!

    Bone fragment

    Here’s a chunk of crocogator I found on the Brazos River in SE Texas. It doesn’t look like the typical osteoderms that are found . I’m not sure if there’s enough here to identify a specific bone…
  13. First of all - sorry for bad and rude language)) So, I need some help with identification of this teeth. All was found in Russia, Trans-Urals region, in a few different rivers: Belyakova, Sugatka and Derney. There must be Eocene period, probably lutet or barton layer, but I can't be sure, because there is no bedrock, only fossils that river stream brings. Sometimes me and other people found there more old fossils, back to cretaceous even. I showed this photo to few reptile specialists from Saint Petersburg, but they sure that is no crocodile teeth, and insist that is a fish teeth. But i have f
  14. Both of the teeth came from the White Limestone, Traditional Layer, Great Oolite Series, Bathonian of Oxfordshire, UK. Any thoughts on the identity of these teeth? Are they crocodile teeth or plesiosaur/pliosaur teeth?
  15. Here I have a prett rare a nicely preserved Deinosuchus Riograndensis tooth from the Bufftown Formation, Alabama. Looking for great quality theropod teeth from the KemKem region, preferably Carcharodontosaurus. Open for other dinosaur teeth as well. Just hit me up!

    Egg or nothing

    Found this in the hills near coastal Southern California. From what I can tell, it’s another a croc egg or simply a concretion of some sort. I would appreciate any thoughts on this. Thank you in advance for your help!
  17. Hello, I've been sorting out my fossils and was wondering if this tooth is real? The label says it is a Sarcosuchus tooth from just south of Taouz, Morocco. If it is real, would it perhaps be better labelled as a crocodile tooth rather than Sarcosuchus? Thank you
  18. At what size, do you consider fossil Crocodile teeth to be Large? I do recognize that the answer will be dependent upon the particular species, but in general; what is a Large Croc tooth?
  19. I purchased this rib from Kemkem beds,but I'm not sure if it belongs to a dinosaur or a crocodile, does anyone have an idea? Thank you
  20. Hello , I found these two teeth in Calvert cliffs , MD . I just wanted to know if they are crocodile teeth , porpoise teeth , or if they even are teeth ? . I would appreciate any input thank you .

    Purse state weird bone fossil id

    here are some stuff that I found in the aquia formation over the weekend. this button is weird to me, my gut tells me it might be a vert, but it could also be a fish tooth perhaps? this is a weird one, it looks like a Galeocerdo tiger shark, but i havent read anything of these existing at the Aquia formation, much less finding them at purse. bone fragments? would it be possible to tell if its reptile bone? this bone is interesting because it has some underside of its surface still intact. it almost reminds me of

    Crocodile Vert? and what species?

    I have bought this crocodile vert on a fossil show a few months back and i was wondering if someone could identify what species it came from? I'm not even sure if it is a crocodile vert but it looks like one but since the person who i bought it from didn't know much about crocodile bones it could be something else too. it measures 71.6mm long and 52.0mm wide. for Americans its 2.80" long and 2.04" wide. it was apparently found in Morocco in a Paleocene formation but i have no name of the formation and neither of the exact place where it was found ( i know this is probably gonna

    What tooth is this?

    Hi, Just found this tooth in the Cape Fear River of Wilmingnton, NC. I think it’s either a prehistoric alligator or crocodile. Trying to identify its species, help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Spinosaurus or crocodile tooth?

    Hello! I bought this tooth from a gift shop. It was labeled a spinosaurus tooth. I’m just wondering if it most likely is a spinosaurus tooth, or a crocodile or something else? Thank you!
