    Found this today at Amelia island to me it looks like a small mammal incisor, any thoughts? Thanks!
  2. Hello all I recently got permission from my family to build a preparation room, so I'm getting some tools to finally start preparing fossils. I've got a few fossils from my own hunts that I can start practicing on, but those are all in extremely hard, sticky rocks, and often badly preserved. I would however like to get some fossils from other locations to practice different techniques, mainly with air abrasion and to get a feel with the preparation of a wild variation of fossils. I picked some fossils (mainly from the USA), that aren't too complex I think, but please correct m

    Fish skeleton fossil SD

    Found what looks like fish jaw with tooth and skeleton. There are many pieces of this fossil but only showing part with jaw. Was found poorly preserved in Pierre shale SD. Wondering which fish species it might be? Thanks!

    Fossil bone or skull piece?

    For a friend of mine. ID'd as a partial fish skull. Found in the KemKem beds. Honestly no idea what it actually is. So give it a shot here.

    Fish fosil

    I found a very beautiful fossil. like a fish fossil
  6. Hi all, seeking some identification help from those familiar with marine vertebrates from the Pennsylvanian black shales (Nebraska, Missouri, etc.) I recently obtained a few ex. Ted White and Bill Rushlau specimens of Romerodus orodontus and a few very nice Iniopteryx rushlaui and one unidentified specimen was included. Just for context for some reading this, W.D. "Ted" White and Bill Rashlau were very prolific collectors of the Pennsylvanian black shales, primarily the states of Nebraska, Missouri and Iowa. The specimens that they collected and cataloged are in many museum colle

    Rare Find For NSR!

    I had a good hunt at the North Sulphur River Texas. I found a nice variety and possibly the first Pterosaur limb bone ever found at NSR.
  8. I went fossil hunting at Tillywhandland quarry on Turin hill, Scotland today and found a complete Mesacanthus mitchelli fossil. It is probably the best one I have found yet. Both the head and tail are present. The head is so well preserved you can see both the gill rakers and eye socket.

  10. First time i receive a fake fossil fish!looks like a Triassic Fossil Fish In Nodule - Madagascar but in fact plaster and paint !
  11. Hello everyone! I wanted to share a holy grail fossil that I have obtained: a partial skull of Dunkleosteus terrelli found in Cleveland Shale, Ohio This specimen has been confirmed by Zerina Johnson, a leading paleontologist at the Natural History Museum of UK as well as James Boyle who is a leading expert in the field and published academic research papers on Dunkleosteus and other placoderms of the Devonian period. Below is an excerpt from James Boyle on the Dunkleosteus partial skull specimen: "Yes, it's most like a Dunkleosteus based on what I ca

    Cretaceous jaw

    Found this in Bandera County, Texas. Seems like teeth coming out but bone structure is present. Measures 3” long by 1.5” wide by 2” high.

    Rhaetian riddle

    Hello together, I just acquired some little bone and tooth(?) fragments from the rhaetian bonebed near Bebenhausen. Whoever collected them in the seventies wrote "Psephosaurus?, Schmidt page 411" on the label. I think that was rather wishful thinking. There are some bowl-shaped elements of 3-5 mm with a concave side that may show enamel. I tend to think those are some kind of fish teeth, Who can tell me more? Best Regards, J

    Help Identifying fish fossil!

    Hello Fossil enthusiasts! Im new to this forum, and am already here needing help identifying a fossil! I recently came into possession of this fossil of a fish. While I initially believed it to be a member of the Knightia genus, I am now quite unsure what I have here. The man I purchased it from said it was from asia, possibly china, but I am unsure of the authenticity of that claim. I don't have a tape measure on me, but the slate itself is approximately 9cm long. Any help is appreciated!
  15. Hello everyone, I recently came across some fossils posted on our favorite auction site described as Onychodont teeth from Yunnan, China. This immediately caught my eye and I decided to send in a very low offer, not expecting to even purchase or bid, just to see how much the seller might ask for a fossil like that. Surprisingly the offer was accepted, and after a few weeks this fossil arrived. It's a 3cm long tooth on a Limestone matrix with other fragmented remains from fish. I know that identifying Devonian fish teeth is something that is very difficult to do, so I am not expe
  16. I've been researching good fossil sites near/at Milwaukee, Wisconsin (primarily from the Milwaukee Formation (dating to the Middle Devonian (Givetian)) when I just found out the most of the Devonian fish fossils that have been found from that formation have been found from a particularly member strata - the Berthelet Formation. Gass, Kenneth & Kluessendorf, Joanne & Mikulic, Donald & Brett, Carlton. (2019). Fossils of the Milwaukee Formation: A Diverse Middle Devonian Biota from Wisconsin, USA. I'm aware that time has seen the Milwaukee formation largely bu
  17. hey! I would like to work on some fossil fish from the green river formation, does anyone know where I can find some that ship internationally. Please PM me any suggestions Cheers Leon.

    Fossil fishes from central Italy

    Hello everyone ! I received this fossil as a gift from my grandfather, a retired geologist. I've always wondered if it was possible to trace the species of the two fish. The fossil was presumably taken in an area of central Italy, probably in the Apennine area of Lazio or Abruzzo. the two fish measure just under 3 cm. Moreover, do you think it would make sense to continue cleaning the surface completely to perhaps discover new ones? Thanks so much !
  19. Recently acquired this rare 185mm nuchal bone from Dunkleosteus Terrelli, just thought to share it since there are very few Dunkleosteus material on the commercial market! Attached pictures below just to see the size of this since on most fish it's the size of your thumbnail! Devonian Cleveland Shale Cleveland, Ohio USA 185mm (7.2 inches) nuchal bone

    Dunkleosteus terrelli Nuchal Bone

    Dunkleosteus terrelli Devonian Cleveland Shale Cleveland Ohio, USA I've attached some pictures of where the nuchal bone is located on Dunkleosteus and what it looks like, also included two articles that are interesting reads!

    Help with Dogfish identification

    We just got back from the Denver show, and while we were there we picked up this really nice fish fossil plate from Lebanon. What makes it special is that one of the 3 fish is supposedly a Dogfish. Unfortunately, we didn't get much other information from the dealer, so I'm hoping someone here can help us out with a few questions: 1. Any idea what species this dogfish is, and is this technically a shark or is it a relative of a shark? 2. Any idea what the age would be? Thanks! -Brian
  24. Is this correctly identified as a Saurichthys? Does it at all seem augmented/modified? Anyone have an idea of the typical value of a fossil like this (without using the sold price as a reference)?
  25. Late last year I received some micro matrix from @Notidanodon that he collected from the Isle of Wright (UK) out of the Greensand Fm. near Yaverland. This material is Lower Cretaceous, Albian aged. I have picked through much of it and have some questions on what I have found. I am not well versed in the fauna from this area and some internet searching has led me to some suggestions, but I'm hoping Will or some of our more experienced collectors from this area such as @Welsh Wizard, @Yoda, @Bobby Rico, and any others that I cant think of off the top of my head, can set me straight.
