    Mesozoic Gars

    I thought I would ask here, do any of the members here have Mesozoic gar fossils in their collection, im not looking to buy them, more wanting to see the range of Mesozoic fossil gar material owned by members here

    Devonian Fish Scales New York?

    I found this odd piece in a grey shale layer in a place with devonian age matrix and fossils from new york with various layers from flakier layers compact with fossils to harder layers like this gray shale layer that this one thats not as compact with fossils as the other ones. I am unaware of devonian fish remains from new york and I usually do not notice odd minerals in the grey shale layer so this this piece baffles me, these small shiny "scales" sort of reminds me of how the devonian fish fossils of the old red sandstone of the uk kinda preserve but other than that I have no idea what else

    What kind of fish mouth plate is this?

    Wading in one of the creeks in my neighborhood provided a few small fossils and I found a interesting looking mouth plate. This is a late Pleistocene area, and in the Tampa member of the Arcadia formation, and the other finds I’m wondering is are these alligator scutes or could I be wrong?
  4. I believe this positive/negative fish fossil specimen to be an Actinopterygian. The fossils are in a limestone nodule and I have no collection information from the estate sale company. These specimens vividly display scales and some bones with the dorsal and anal fins, as well as the caudal fins. Please let me know your thoughts! Thanks for your time and expertise!
  5. Last summer I posted a trip report about finding some Pennsylvanian black shale in a river bed in East Central Illinois http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/106753-628-illinois-black-shale-trip-w-listracanthus/. I was able to visit the site again once more in the fall last year when the river was running much lower and collect more and larger pieces of the finely bedded and fissile shale. Since then I have been slowly splitting and going through the rocks I brought home, and finding many interesting fish parts- that is definitely the dominant fauna presen
  6. Well, I’m finally getting to dig into my truckload of fossils from my Wyoming trip with @RJB so it’s my turn to open up a prep thread. I spent a couple hours today poking around to find the perfect fish to start with. The 18” layer never disappoints. This good sized Diplomystus has 2 Knightia on top of it. I’m going to try to save both but I’m concerned that the right hand one is covering most of the Diplo’s skull. If that’s the case, the little guy will have to go! This is after about 90 minutes of scribe work.

    Fish tooth?

    Hello! Help, please, to identify tooth. I think that its tooth of some bony fish, but I didnt found before such type. May be its possible to identify family or genus? Height ~ 1 mm. Age - Middle Miocene. Location - Western Ukraine. Thanks in advance!

    Fossil ID Matoaka trip 2

    Hi Again! for Easter this year I decided to go to the Calvert cliffs for some Easter egg fossil hunting. it was a lovely day out got to talk with some nice folks. I wanted to share some of my finds and my IDs of them to check if I got them right before I put labels on them in my collection. 1) Stingray teeth, most likely eagle ray, although the grayish one looks to me like a duck billed ray. 2) Mako Shark Isurus hastalis upper 3) Hemipristis Serra upper 4) Extinct tiger shark Physogaleus contortus 5) Extinct tiger shark Galeocerdo (I think the one
  10. Hello everyone! I was out at one of my Triassic track areas in New Jersey and came up with something non track-related I found interesting. We have all kinds of ripple marks, plants, etc. so I'm really not sure what this is.. can anyone help? Thanks!

    Stratford hall mini megalodon

    For the past few days I’ve had very little sleep. I thought that I had messed up sleeping way past the low tide time, but in hindsight that Meg was gonna be mines anyways so it really didn’t matter. It’s been a while since I’ve collected some good material, It’s been a bit of a hit and miss so far but I think my luck is finally starting to turn over. I’ve been going to this Paleocene spot a lot lately so I figure it would be nice to change thing up a bit. Anyways, from the title you guys can probably infer that I’ve found my first Meg of 2021 which I’m pretty happy about because I found none l

    Funny Fossil fish

    I was going through my fossils, just looking at them. I saw something I didn’t notice before. It made me laugh. I don’t know if a piece of coprolite landed on there just right, or if it actually came from the Knightia, but either way, I thought it was hilarious. I guess extinction scared it, that’s my theory. I just wanted to share this fossil. It’s funny, in my opinion.
  13. Stopped by a new home construction site, a tad NE of DFW airport, Eagle Ford Kef, so far just levelled with road cuts. Stumbled upon this shark tooth and I lack the experience to ID it. Next up the rock which is what I think is fish coprolite, it weighs nothing, doesn't look like any shark coprolite I've seen, and there were no other rocks that looked even close. Lastly, and I might be way off, I'm pretty sure is shark related, my first impression was it looked like a puddle of barf. These were just the biggest peices the rest was shattered. I know sharks vomit so that was just a thought , i

    Cockerellites I prepped roughly a month ago

    This is a Cockerellites I prepped about a month ago. I used a dremel lightly to get the top layer of matrix off, then used a regular pick for the finer preparation. For my second Cockerellites prep ever, I think I did a pretty good job. The coolest part of this piece is that there is a long piece of coprolite(?) ontop of its head. I have no clue if this would bring up the value, I kind of doubt it would though.
  15. Good evening all and thanks again for everyone's help and patience with my finds....to that end, here's another one. Stark shale between Winterset and Bethany Falls limestone Pennsylvanian. I'm guessing a fish scale or shark denticle (it appears to be inversely ridged or elevated in deeper layers). I would still like to clean it a little better (the brown-filled divit) but wanted some thoughts prior-it will help me decide how to clean it. Thanks all!! Bone
  16. I finally got some microfossil slides and I got some additional Devonian matrix from New York. I decided to go back to the Genundewa Limestone matrix primarily because I failed to find shark related matrix from other locations that are of the same age. Each of the three searches in this matrix has produced different results which make it fun to search. This search was a lot of Phoebodus teeth and some were close to 75% complete. Easily the best Phoebodus teeth I’ve found in this formation yet. I found a fair amount of Omalodus teeth and some nice ones. I also found two incomplete

    Somewhat fishy

    Ahoi, I just finished a model of Dunkleosteus the lazy way, because I don´t have that much time these days. Lazy way means: Skull is a bought model from kaiyodo dinotales, postcranial is a skeletal drawing by Scott Hartmann I modified slightly and printed on some transparent foil. Like the outcome. It is quite small though, only 15 cm, representing a meager 3m in my chosen scale. can anyone tell what the other two are? both recent species, one handmade after a photograph, the other 3d printed from ct data. As I don´t know if I can add tags after posting

    Fish prep

    Finished this fish yesterday, preservation wasn’t terrible. The head Isn’t preserved well and neither is the tips of the fins but anything is better than my first prep which was on an exploded knightia. Could of turned out better but I’m satisfied with it. I have a couple questions. 1. can you tell if it is a priscacara or a cockerellites? I believe they are two different genera with different species. 2. What is the part in front of the fish’s head? It’s not bone, it’s very thin and different, I have no idea what it is. Oh and I was prepping with a not so sharp needle

    Fish skin imprint?

    While cleaning conodonts (and the next object to follow this topic), I came across this "imprint"? It isn't a defined shape, but has a very uniform pattern. Thinking fish skin? It looks a lot like the Iniopterygian I found a couple months ago but the "scales" are smaller?.....I'll let ya'll decide or comment!! Thanks!! Bone

    Fossil fish? Sweden

    Found this in sweden malmö. The chalk is danian period 66-61 myo it looks like fish to me. The pieces are very small. If its a fish what part of it might it be?
  21. got to work on these guys because some of these creatures were my inspiration of what they would have looked like in color and others are at an art show. wonder what animals will you like to see when its unleashed before your very eyes?

    Fish vs mammal tooth fossil

    Hi to all. I found this tooth on a beach in Madison, Ohio in 2007. A wave had washed it onto the shore and I was quite surprised. I saw that it was a fossil tooth as half of the enamel showing was agatized. I suspect it is a fish tooth but not sure. It is a great specimen! Can anyone help with identification? It is 2 inches long.
