    I need help with identification

    Unfortunately the only information on the fossil is that it is from North America. I was thinking it is a distal femur or proximal tibia but really have no clue. Is it possible to ID the type of dinosaur with just the end of a long bone? Any input would be greatly appreciated.

    Megalonyx femur prep advice

    Hi folks, I recently found this Pleistocene mammal bone in an alluvial deposit midway up a cliff. Part had broken off when I found it, but I was able to collect all the pieces of what appears to be a Megalonyx femur. My stumbling block now is that I have zero prep experience and this is obviously a pretty good find so I don't want to mess it up... I had been reading up on the posts here about prepping and was waffling between paleobond or butvar to consolidate it and then paleobond to repair the breaks. I am also leaning towards having someone with more experience/a professional
  4. Bison bison. Wisconsin glaciation. Southern Minnesota, Brown County. Science Museum of Minnesota. Found in a riverbed in September of 2020 on a joint citizen scientist and Science Museum outing. I found this femur by noticing the femoral head sticking out of the river bottom. External Post:
  5. I picked it up and began cleaning it because it looked odd. The first picture is after several soakings in vinegar and scrubbing with a tooth brush, but I got a bit impatient and began using sand paper to gently rub the coating away. It is starting to show a dark brownish color which shows up much better when the specimen is wet, which is why in the other pictures it is wet. It looks like it could be a bone, but then again, I know nature can craft some pretty amazing things as well. Originally this was about 6 inches (15.24 cm) long, but in keeping with the fact that I do not know what I am do
  6. Distal end of femur collected in SW Wyoming from surface so precise stratigraphic localization uncertain – likely dates to Bridger (late “B1” to early “B2”). The rather sharp V-shaped intercondylar fossa seems unique / unusual and perhaps diagnostic. Thanks.
  7. This rock caught my eye in a stream bed (SF East Bay area, CA, USA), so I took a couple pics and left it. Okay, my mind is blown how the curvatures of this match the femur head of various ancient beasts. Even the different sides seem to match, but it can't be right? Just a rock right? Do you think its worth going back to get some better pics? Thanks in advance. P.S. - Sorry no scale reference, it was maybe 6 inches across.

    Possible femur

    Collected this years ago from the Calvert formation in Maryland. Any guesses?
  10. I am a university student studying T. rex, so of course, I ran into the Nanotyrannus debate. People have been arguing about Nanotyrannus being valid, but there's a huge problem: No adult specimen. Unless someone has an adult, or even a subadult, specimen of Nanotyrannus (over 15 years old), it isn't a real genus. This is why I am here. I know people collect fossils and post pics of them on here, so I'm willing to see what people may, or may not, have. My question is: Does anybody have an adult Nanotyrannus specimen? In simpler terms, does anybody have a Nanotyrannus fe
  11. Two limb bone fragments from the Eocene deposits in the Big Horn Basin. Mammalian, but don't know anything more beyond that. Would really appreciate help!
  12. Hi I am currently preparing a bunch of associated bones from Morisson Formation. The fossils have been found near the town Shell. The finder identified the bones as Camptosaurus and I agree with the ID. The jacket contains two femuri, ribs, parts of hip bones as well as a phalanx. It seems that all bones belong to the same animal. However, I am not convinced regarding the phalanx. I think it may not belong to this individual (or Camptosaurus). The campto digits I saw so far looked quite a bit different. If it is not Campto what is it then? Below please find some pi
  13. I saw a dinosaur supporting bone. Excavated from Madagascar. But I don't know the variety. His minimum perimeter is 60.5CM. Can you determine the weight? About?
  14. Found at a land site in Sarasota there's lots of Dugong, megalodon and some whale stuff been found in this area. Need help with identification

    Humerus or femur seareptile

    Hello everyone. I am sorting out some old finds in this lockdown period. This one was found in the Boulonnais area, North of France. Upper Jurassic, mainly marine sediments. I have always assumed this is a humerus or femur of a sea reptile with missing joints. Plio- or plesiosaurus. There is a big muscle attachment. Can anyone confirm or not? Regards, Niels

    Mystery Femur

    Found this in a creek off of peace river, way way out. It’s not fossilized but it is old for sure. It appears to be a femur of some sort, but I can’t figure out what it belongs to? It is 9 inches long.

    Proximal part femur dino?

    Heyy, I have this part of a bone. It looks like the proximal half of a femur? It looks a bit to straight to be a femur of a crocodile, anyone agree? Does anyone know to look in what direction? Measurements: 80x29x21mm Kemkem beds Morocco. Gr Yasmin
  18. Found in a feeder creek to the North Sulphur River. First thought was a Pleistocene bison but the mineralization and density of it have me questioning that. any help appreciated
  19. I recently learned that the Tyrannosaur femur I discovered in Dinosaur Provincial Park in 2018 (the same day I discovered my Hadrosaur Trackway, actually only 10 minutes apart from each other) is at the Royal Tyrrell Museum. I originally reported it in late 2018 and the Dinosaur Provincial Park team collected it and brought it to the field station, they then gave it to the Tyrrell and it’s been there since. But the thing is I never knew this until recently as I asked Caleb Brown about it when I was asking him about the Hadrosaur Trackway, he said it was collected by another group which turne
  20. Hi there! I recently purchased this online, could you please help identify this? the seller was unsure if it was a juvenile trex or a nano. It was found in Hell creek dawson County east of Glendive Montana Thank you :)

    Florida Fossil Femur Head - Equus?

    Hello, This is the proximal head of a fossilized femur that I bought a few months back at a rock shop. The only collection info I know is that it’s from Florida, and by the looks of it it’s probably from the Peace River. After doing some amateur study I’m pretty sure this is the end of a horse femur, though of course I have been very wrong before and so would like some more thoughts/opinions. Unfortunately the place where the third trochanter would be is broken off which makes identification more difficult. Many thanks!

    Ancient Hunters

    June 5, 2010 Barry held his camera barely two feet away from the back of an Agkistrodon piscivorus. Although a small snake, it was still very dangerous and he positioned his camera based on years of experience with these reptiles. Known more commonly as a Cottonmouth or Water Moccasin, the twelve inch juvenile snake had coloration similar to the closely related Copperhead. However, its patterns were muted by late afternoon shadows in a remote location that was not favorable to an easy medical evacuation. So, we slowly moved away and eased our paddles back in the water to complete an adven
