    red and heavy bones: Kem Kem?

    We have a few unusual bones we got many years ago from a collection. Should be Kem Kem. But, I am unsure. They are bloody red and very heavy. I think it might be, because in one hole I see sandy sediment I know from Kem Kem But..., what do you think? both are approx. 8 - 10 cm long

    Fossilized vertebrae

    Hello All, I am new to the forum. I have a few things I would like to post I have found near where I live. These vertebrae I actually found in a house flip a friend of mine did so I am not sure the original location found. I am told they are most likely whale but the weight makes it arguable. The larger of the two weighs about 40lbs. What do you guys think?

    Please help identifying!

    Does anyone know what these items might be? Thanks the last 3 pictures are all the same item just different angles
  5. I have a few vertebrae I was hoping to get identified. These are 3 that I don't have any others that are alike. I tried to search online and the oval shaped one looks like possibly a Pachy but wasn't sure. These were all found on the Judith River Formation Montana, Hill County. first 4 is the one that I thought was Pachy, 2nd 4 I am not sure, 3rd 4 might be Hadrosaur?
  6. We visited Yellow Cat Flats/Poison Strip and went fossil hunting. At the time, we thought we found petrified wood (there, the wood doesn't show any grain so tricky) and dinosaur bones, but now we're just unsure. We posted in the ID section before posting this video and reached out to others, but it's tricky. If you have any ideas, please let us know, and posting below the video on youtube will help others to learn as well (outside this knowledgeable forum). best wishes, Lloyd
  7. Hi, does anyone have or know where I can view images of a ankyloaurus/nodosaur foot but especially the ungals? Having a hard time finding images for a comparison.

    Hell Creek theropod bones?

    Hi, y'all. Here are a couple of dinosaur rib sections from Hell Creek (Harding Co., SD). Does the spongey interior indicate theropod, or are these simply chunkosaurian? Bone 1: Bone 2:
  9. I was out yesterday doing a final hunt before the snow sets in here in Montana on the Judith River formation and found this claw along with this vertebra, no other bones around so possibly from the same animal. I have found theropod claws that are much smaller and this one is huge when compared. I searched for the tip but sadly couldn't find it. I assume because of the size it would be a tyrannosauroid but not certain. Can it be determined to be a toe claw or hand claw? Is the vertebra identifiable? @patrickhudson
  10. I found these toe bones yesterday in the Judith River Formation near the Canadian border. I have found several bones like these but not completely sure of the identification to give them. They appear hadrosaur or triceratops like based on a google search of other similar bones. Let me know if you can identify them.

    Dinosaur bone prep

    Hi everyone, I was wondering if anyone could tell me how to remove dirt from dinosaur bones?

    Dinosaur Scales

    I found these scale looking fossils yesterday out looking on the Milk River. Does anyone know what the might be? I also posted one of my larger dinosaur bones that seems to have some opal veins maybe? not sure. Anyone have an idea about these? The scale looking one on the left has marrow and is a thin bone, the one on the right just looks like it was flaked off something. Appreciate the help.

    Bones found in my Fathers Barn

    Hello everyone, I am new to the group. I was cleaning my fathers barn this weekend and discovered these three fossils. He is very elderly but he said they were found on Whidbey Island in Washington. He thought they were Mammoth teeth. We did not know what the fang is from. Or is it a mammoth tusk? Any info would be appreciated... Thanks Bill
  14. I was browsing agatized dinosaur bone fragments on a dealer’s website and they made an interesting claim that based on a the cells and cell structure on a dinosaur bone, you can sometimes narrow down a list of species it could have came from. Could this work out if you have enough bone? Could it work for both agatized and non-agatized dinosaur bones? Personally, I’d think that you have to have enough bone there to narrow it down, not fragments or chunks. I’d like to have a discussion over this, so don’t be afraid to put your two cents in! Just for fun, I’ll post a cou

  16. I have recently purchase two large pieces of Jurassic aged bone from the Morrison Formation near the Dinosaur National Monument in Northwest Colorado. They seemed to be shaped in a way that it maybe possible to give them a general ID, I don't know if it can of course go as far as ID the specific dinosaur of course but if anyone with experience may know what kind of bones they are, any help would be appreciated as I would like to label them for the collection. As it stands the first larger one I believe to be likely sauropod bone or some other large herbivore while the second one I think may be
  17. I recently heard of the discovery of soft tissues in a tyrannosaurus rex femur. That was a few years ago, but I was asking myself if I could try it out myself. Has somebody already tried this, or knows hown to do it? Thanks, Ramon G.
  18. I have a secret place in Texas in which I've found many excellent fossils of sea creatures, such as clams or mollusks and other shellfish. I may also have found bones of some kind, and saw impressions that may have been dinosaur tracks. I am no paleontologist and would not know what made the impressions, but I know that dinosaur tracks were found in other nearby areas. In particular, I found large, intact, fossilized shells there that match some of the photos of "bivalves" I've seen online. I found many smaller cone shaped shell fossils, and oddly shaped rocks that may have been bo
  19. These camarasaurus metacarpals were discovered within a 20' area of the digsite. A number of other camarasaurus bones were found in the same area. They all came from a smaller, sub-adult camarasaurus. I'm trying to figure out if they all come from the same foot. (left, front foot) I have only two, or three worn out toe bones, and the big claw was missing. High energy water ripped this dinosaur apart. Parts of a diplodocus were scattered around the same area.
  20. I'm extremely excited to announce that two days ago at 3:30 a newly discovered dinosaur vertebra was recovered from a Late Cretaceous Campanian formation in West Tennessee. This is only the 4th. dinosaurian vertebra to ever be found in Tennessee! It's also the first dinosaur vertebra I've ever found in my life. The specimen is from the tail section on the vertebrae column of a Hadrosaur. The neural canal and neural arch are still plainly visible. Specimen is missing the neural spine and also possible Chevron bone. This is a historic achievement for paleontology in Tennessee and here is the fir

    Need I.d. For Cretaceous Vertebra Please.

    These are bad photos I know, I'm just looking for a general classification....Dinosaur or Marine Reptile. It sure is looking Dinosaurish to me. It displays a flat surface area on each face. In the photos, the top surface is flat , and is what I take to be the neurospine canal. The vert is longer than wide. Recovered today. Looks like a Hadrosauridae vert to me. If this doesn't look Dinosaurian to you, please share with me your thoughts on what Marine Reptile you think it may be.
  22. Hi everyone. I just found this forum and am hoping to get some useful information. I have been doing a lot of research, and have been for most of my life on Fossils, stones and bones. I'll be attending college soon to study Paleontology and geology. It's been a dream of mine since I was very young. I do have some questions though, as I was not able to find answers. As far as collecting vertebrates, all the research I have done, I have concluded that I cannot even keep vertebrate fossils, I must turn them over to the public museums etc. I do see people buying/selling bones, and teeth and am
