  1. Greetings, y'all. Its been a busy summer. No time to post much here, but I did get out quite a few times this year, even though I successfully turned 60 years old this summer. Let's see what happened in my little world last weekend. During a May trip, I went to one of my usual hunting areas in southwestern Wyoming where I have collected mammal, croc, fish, and turtle fossils from the Bridger Fm over the past two decades. There is a lot more terrain out there for me to explore so I decided to check out a new area a few miles further down the two-track. Here is a photo of where I ended up

    Niger Crocodilians

    Hi, I won an auction for 4 Crocodilian teeth from the Elrhaz Formation of Niger. They're Lower Cretaceous. The seller noted that he could not identify them definitively as Sarcosuchus, or another Crocodilian from the locality. I hope these photographs are enough to identify them. Otherwise, I can get more photographs when they arrive. Largest one is 1.4" Thank you, Bellamy

    Moroccan Vertebrae

    I have here three vertebrae from the Kem Kem of Morocco sold as "Dinosaur or Crocodilian." Is there any way to identify which of these they belong to, and if so, can they be narrowed any further? Thank you, Bellamy First one is 1.5" long and 1.5" wide

    Kem Kem femur?

    Here's a 45 cm / 17.7 inch long bone from the Kem Kem of Morocco. I don't know what animal this belonged to. Maybe a theropod or crocodilian?
  5. Way back in 2012 I found some blue crocodile bones in southwestern Wyoming and showed you folks some of them. I started prepping them back then and put them down for other projects. This spring as Covid19 kept me at home for a few weeks, I continued prepping this stuff. I wish I could tell you guys how many hours I have on this, but I am afraid to add them up. The first photo shows what this looked like at the end of 2012, until earlier this year. and as of today, it is done. I can ID most of these bones, except the long wide one on the top left of the bloc
  6. Specifically on the east coast if possible, but west coast suggestions are welcome too. I've found videos of them being discovered such as the one bellow and I know which states they're in, but no specific location is given. Any and all help is very much appreciated, thank you.

    Flat elongated Kem Kem bone ID

    I've got this long flat bone from the Kem Kem with a wide base, it was presumably attached to a larger bone. It also seems like it's missing the tip. I thought it might be a small spinosaurid neural spine but it has a weird lump of bone on one side so it seems like it is something else. Is this lump a muscle scar? Or a healed wound? And could this bone be an odd spinosaurid neural spine or is it something entirely else?

    Kem Kem croc jaw fragments ID

    I've got five jaw fragments from the Kem Kem of which I think they are from crocodilians. Any ideas as to what genus or species these belong would be appriciated. 1. No idea what this jaw is from, but my best guess is some crocodilian. 2. I also don't know what this is but also probably some crocodilian. 3. This one has a hard layer of sediment covering it and it's missing the underside of the jaw. It looks a bit like the dented part of a Spinosaurus dentary but it's more likely also crocodilian. 4. Definitely crocodilian, has a typical croc texture (lots of dents). To me i

    Need help

    Possible horse and crocodile tooth

    Found these two teeth in a creek in north texas. I believe the first may be a partial horse and the second a crocodile? Any help would be appreciated as always.

    Reconsidering this ID

    Hi everyone, I posted this vertebra a while back and the consensus was crocodilian, however after looking online at some varanid vertebrae (namely palaeosaniwa) I see a resemblance between the two. I want to know what people think. Below are what I found online.

    NJ Cretacous Whose tooth is this?

    NJ Cretacous hunt today, found this tooth in a deep sift. Has a tiny bit of enamel left on it. Any ideas? Its about 1-1/2 inches long.
  13. When I first set out to collect Dinosaur fossils, a fossil dealer with a long history in the industry and from whom I had purchased shark fossils from had this listed for sale. It was sold as a Troodon formosus ( I am aware it is an invalid taxon). When I committed to purchasing this, i was unaware that only Troodontid teeth had been found in Hell Creek and I tended to believe dealer ID's. I do not regret the purchase. It is a great little bone to have in our education program and it was not expensive. We want to cover Troodontids in our education program which is why I bought this. It was che

    Spinosaurus or Crocodilian jaw?

    Hi, wanted to ask for opinions about the identification of this partial jaw, offered to me as a Spinosaurus jaw (or Spinosaurid), but unsure on how to tell the difference between a spinosaurid jaw and a crocodilian jaw. Thanks.

    Crocodilian Tooth Sliver

    From the album: Calvert Cliffs

    Choptank Formation Virginia Miocene Collected on private property with permission
  16. Dimensions: 90mm long ; 60mm base to top of processes Location: Ifezouane Formation, Taouz, Kem Kem Basin, South Morocco After a lot of research I'm confident this is a cervical rib (something I didn't even know existed previously). I'd also take a guess that it's crocodilian rather than from a dinosaur. If it is crocodilian then my impression is that this would have been a pretty substantial croc. Based on some crude extrapolation from an image of a crocodilian skeleton I'm coming up with a figure of something like 5m from nose to tail. I understand that the

    Lance Formation Reptile Jaw

    Hey everyone! Feels like it's been a while since I've posted any of my finds. Life is busy as it can be at the moment so it's hard to find a time to post regularly. Here is a section of reptile jaw I found at a microsite in the Lance formation of eastern Wyoming. It was initially identified as belonging to a champsosaur, but I wanted to see what people thought on the forum. In the field: At home: (little un-erupted tooth)

    Cretaceous crocodile; likely Dyrosaurus

    From the album: Marine reptiles and mammals

    Unidentified Cretaceous crocodile species, suggested by multiple people, to appear to be a Dyrosaurus, came from the second phosphatic layer of a phosphate mine(what a shocker!)around the suburbs of Khouribga, Morocco. Original teeth, not replacements. Have gone through and cleaned up the base of some of the ones that had some sand around them.

    Scute IDs

    Hi everyone, I am once again seeking advice from this wonderful community! I am learning a lot from a lot of the resources provided here, so I hope to contribute more in the near future. What I have in question are--- Four scutes found in the brooks of Monmouth county NJ. The first and third (from left to right) appear to be crocodilian, being dimpled on one side and smooth and boney on the other. The second has feature consistent with a ray scute with one smooth side and a ridge on the opposite side. The scute I am most perplexed over is furthest to the r

    Crocodilian Bone ID?

    This small crocodilian fossil was collected on the beach at Bouldnor on the Isle of Wight in southern England. It comes from the Bouldnor Formation and is about 33 million years old. I'm certain it is crocodilian (from the small aligatorid Diplocynodon) based on the distinctive pitted texture. Scutes and vertebrae from this small croc are fairly common finds on this coastline. However this particular piece has stumped me, it is 3D and hollow on the inside, not like any scute i've picked up. I was thinking it must be some sort of skull element but i'd appreciate any help to rectify this!
  21. Hi, I thought I'd show some of my first micro-vertebrate fossils from the Bembridge Marls Mbr. of the Bouldnor Fm. I collected around 2kg of matrix from one of the 'shelly' estuarine horizons in the lower part of the member at Hamstead Ledge, and am really pleased the results so far! The Bembridge Marls form the basal member of the Bouldnor Fm. and were deposited between 34.0 and 33.75 million years representing the final 250,000 years of the Eocene epoch. The depositional environment varies throughout the member and many beds are laterally discontinuous (like the Inse
  22. Here's a few teeth that have me stumped from Southeast Alabama. The area they were found is right in the middle of the Tallahatta formation which should point to them being from the Eocene. We found over twenty of them in the same area with the sizes ranging from 1" to 1/4' inch long. Each tooth is curved and has deep ridges that run the entire length of the tooth, though some are worn more than others. The bases are all round which points me in the direction of a crocodile of some sort but that's where I'm getting stuck...I cant seem to find anything that resembles it online so any help would
  23. I'm posting both sides to see if that helps to identify. Let me know if you need anything else. Thanks! Laura
