    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

    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
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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

    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?

    Nice bird bone from the Zandmotor

    Hi everyone! Last week I found this nice, rather big, bird bone on the Zandmotor (Netherlands). It is most likely late Pleistocene in Age (Weichselian) but could possibly be older (though I doubt this is any older than early Pleistocene, given the conservation). I believe it to be a femur of a rather large species of bird. My first thought was the great auk, Pinguinus impennis, but I think my bone is probably not sturdy/thick enough for such a heavy bird. I'm currently thinking it might be something like a large sea gull, but this is just guess work, and birds are definitely not my area o
  14. Hello! Can anyone help me identify this bone I collected on a beach at the Savannah River in the area known for dredging? It appears to be an animal femur. I’m new to fossils - can’t tell if this could be a really cool find or just the bone of a large processed animal as another suggested. I appreciated the help.

    Identification help

    Hi All This is my first posting so I'm not exactly sure of how to go about things - if I get something wrong I am sure someone can point me in the right direction. I started collecting in my teens - a long time ago, and used to pick up rocks, fossils and minerals from wherever I could, including market stalls and collecting. One of the items I have is a large and heavy piece of fossilised bone. I've never done anything about getting it identified but would like to start now. Can someone point me in the right direction please. OK, as an amendment I should have read the

    Bison Femur Size

    Anyone found a good article with data on femur size in bison. Or possibly even comaprasion acorss bison sub species. I found a large femur and am wondering if it is outside of the normal bison bison range. It is 47cm or about 18.5 inches in length.

    Femur ID help needed

    Hello all. These two bones were found this morning. I think they are both femurs but I’m usually wrong. I squally find deer bone so that’s my starting point. The larger bone is 9.5 inches and the smaller 7.25 inches. The larger one is pretty heavy. I am also working on the assumption that they are modern. Can someone identify the animal? Thank you
  18. This human bones was found on Azov See shore, Russia. Stratigraphic level and geological time of this find doesn't know. There are no archaeological items.
  19. Hi this is a bone I just repaired originally from Morocco, it was broken into two pieces. Please can I have help to identify it. I am guessing Spinosaurus femur. Its 18 inches long, 2 inch diameter at the smallest point and 3.5 inches diameter at the widest, Thank you

    Possible sauropod femur upper end

    I bought this agatized dinosaur fossil at a rock shop in Indianapolis about 4 years ago. It is agatized and it was at risk of being bought and sliced up. I am glad I rescued it. It has an identifiable shape. The attribution was only that it came from the Western United States and that it was a plant eater. It is probably from an old collection. It weighs over 90 lbs. It is wrapped up at the present time in tarp material because I moved in 2018 and I have not unwrapped it yet. I am thinking possible sauropod femur upper end. I can get more pictures and measurements when I unpack it. NON-CO

    NSR, April 3rd

    I made a trip to the NSR today and had a blast. Let me say up front that I am a rank beginner, and this was my first real fossil hunting trip, unless you count a visit to Mineral Wells Fossil Park with a bucket a few weeks ago. It was a dark day, but I was afraid if I waited, the next round of rain would have the river too high. I found some cool stuff. I'll be starting a thread in the ID forum for help identifying things. I'd especially like to know about the femur and tooth I found, so if any NSR experts can help out, I'd appreciate it. Some random thoughts on today's trip: 1. NS

    ID help for a rank beginner

    I visited the North Sulfur River for the first time today and found some great (to me) stuff. Some help with identification would be appreciated. The bones. I didn't expect to find this many bones. Can anyone tell what kind of femur that is? It's short, but very hefty. And it's flat, not round like a human femur. Standing on edge in this photo, you can see how flat it is.

    Theropod Femur ID

    Hello All, This is for @Troodon and all other theropod experts. I recently acquired this Femur that is 20 inches and reportedly T rex. I have seen similarly sized nano femurs and this one is more robust and thicker. Polling the community to see it you all think this is Rex. Also, What is the material in the center? It is dark brown and runs the entire length of the bone (the cross section pic has white adhesive on the material in question). Marrow? Matrix? I have sent these pics to Pete Larson and he is MIA (no response yet). Hoping you all can end my debate. Thanks
