  1. This was found on private land in western MA in the Connecticut River valley. There is 1 clear 'footprint', a possible tail drag, and the imprint of another possible footprint behind it. Any advice, thoughts, or identifications are welcome. Thank you!

    Cretaceous Footprint

    Found in the Maryland Cretaceous Potomac Group, Other prints and bones have come from this spot. Just wanted to get an ID on a potential print.

    Possible footprint cast?

    Hi just wondering if this is a cast of a footprint. Found on beach on the Isle of wight uk Many thanks
  4. I had a pretty great birthday 11/09! Still young at 31! Cole woke me up the night before and said after work he is taking me out to Glen Rose Dino Valley State park in Glen Rose, TX and then going ammonite hunting for some decorations for Ruby’s vivarium. (Ruby is my pink morph western hognose snake) Of course I couldn’t go back to sleep before work after that! I know a lot of Texans probably went there during grade school and to some people dinosaurs are too “typical” but for someone who has lived in Indiana & Texas where it’s mostly marine fossils (and in Iceland there were
  5. I would like to share one of my favorite fossil to all of you, the footprint of Coelophysis. That's really rare for me. Because it can keep the both side so clear. Hope you all like it too. Thank you f t

    Giant footprint

    Another photo from my travels looks remarkably like a foot print. But can't be a giant lol Goes against mainstream beliefs

    I used to hunt Paint Branch Stream in College Park MD for fossils as a child (slightly before the Ray Stanford nodosaur find) and never found much. I returned after many years today (place was really bulldozed, shame) and found a great section of formation and tons of wood impression and lignite fossils. Also found two magnificent flat, thin possible footprints. I’m attaching the best one of which I dropped and broke to my great dismay. Let me know if you need additional shots or angles. I really want some insight on if it is a track. Notice that the clean break revealed the cross section whic
  8. I'd like to share with you a dinosaur footprint I recovered off the beach on Saturday. It comes from the Saltwick Formation, Whitby I know that dinosaur footprints are much harder to prove without absolute doubt since they are trace fossils unlike bone or ammonites ect. But I think this is a really good example as the three toes can be clearly seen. Not much of a heel so probably didnt put it's foot fully flat on the sand, which I've heard happened often (correct me if i'm wrong)

    Found this in a dirt road ditch washout in Northern Lower Michigan. Appears to have fossilized bone on the right side of the "footprint".

    ?is it a footprint?

    My rock was found in Elk Ridge Maryland an area of potential early cretaceous fossils and footprints. It may be a footprint, it may be nothing, I have kept it for awhile as I just cant dismiss it. I can talk myself into believing and disbelieving it. It is only one inch by one inch

    A fossil footprint of....what?

    Found in glacial till, slumping sandy bank of stream, top of the ground. Land on western side of Seneca Lake, Schuyler County, New York. What is the best likely candidate for having made this footprint? Matrix is tan sandstone. I didn't know if black and white would help or not. My equipment is limited plus no sunshine right now.

    Looks like a footprint...probably not, just want to double check though.
  14. Hi Everyone, I'm very excited to have found and have an opportunity to post on this forum. The rock with a potential fossil was found by my six year old son while we were hiking along a riverbed (Paint Branch watershed) within greater Silver Spring, Maryland area. The rock was in a shallow stream. My son was pulling me by the sleeve to show me a "fox track". He loves nature and always draws my attention to various tracks and animal bones on the ground so I didn't think much of it at first until I realized this time the track was in stone instead of the usual sand/mud
  15. Hello, the other day I found this on a hiking trail in Wissahickon park in Philadelphia, pa. it looks like a footprint, but the age of the Wissahickon formation is Paleozoic, not Mesozoic. The rock is roughly brick shaped, and there are stone structures/ ruins around the park. It may be a possibility that an old structure was built with Triassic rock, which can be found a short drive west. I am having trouble identifying the type of rock. Is this a Grallator track, or a Grallator shaped coincidence? thanks!
  16. If this is too unrelated to the forum please let me know but I'm hoping to create a 'dinosaur' themed area of the garden for my son or any other kids who visit. Planning on installed more dinosaur nests with eggs (rounded chalk cobbles) and also some dinosaur footprints. It's the creation of the footprints I'm looking some advice on. I'm hoping to create a series of small paving slabs with a Dino footprint on each one. Wondering the best way to go about it. Perhaps a postcrete or a concrete mix into a mould of some type? It would have to withstand the elements but doesn

    Need help identifying footprint

    Three of my family members found this footprint in Lake Powell, Arizona last October 2020. They differ in what they say the size is from 4 to 12 inches, but my husband is probably the most reliable measurer and saying 12 inches. They looked for more quickly but did not see any. The photo of scenery has a person in a white shirt in the upper central middle in the shadows it was right there or right below there where they found it. A university professor has said it is prehistoric. I did minor searching for clues and the only thing I have so far is it may be a therapod (dilophosaurus?) from the

    muschelkalk reptile footprint?

    Hi Is this reptile footprint fossil? Age : Muschelkalk,Middle triassic location :Poland
  19. Hello, any thoughts on this? A Grallator, from Portland Formation, South Hadley, MA. 6 inch by 5 inch. It looks like other Grallator tracks that I've seen for sale, but it seems very distinct--more distinct than other prints I've seen for sale. Most seem to need highlighting to bring the print out, but this is very clear without any highlightingwhich makes me a bit suspicious. So, an opinion of whether it looks legit rather than a carved one would be much appreciated. Thanks

    Dinosaur footprint?

    Hi everyone, I took a picture of this one that resembles a dinosaur footprint from the shape. It is Upper Cretaceous.Could be? Thanks

    animal impression/footprint?

    Greetings- I found this rock with kids in Montgomery County, Pa., USA, along creekbed. I believe it's a type of sandstone- the Brunswick and Lockatong formations run through county (apologies-I'm just learning geology, it's red-brown). Curious if this is an animal impression? Footprints are known to be found in the area. Photographed at different angle lights, as it looks so different depending. My son showed at school as a fossil- wanted to give him an informed answer. Thanks so much!
  22. Last year when things weren’t so complicated with COVID, we managed to have hunt for dinosaur footprints on the Yorkshire coast. Here’s the beach looking across to Scarborough in the distance. Here are some examples of the prints we came across: Nothing fantastic but all theropods. Heres one in a block that was carry-able: I finally got around to cutting the block to size today although it was freezing outside. So here you go, Theropod Footprint, circa 5 inches long. Middle Jur

    Started new puzzle

    I’ve got 186 pieces that all pretty much fit together. I numbered them and took photos to send to a paleontologist who is going to try to photoshop them together. I got the first two together.

    I don’t know anything about ID’ing footprints so hopefully you guys can help me. It doesn’t look like one to me but I’m still curious. I don’t know exactly where this was found as it was given to me so unfortunately I don’t know the formation.

    New member fossil ID

    Hello Everyone, I am a new member on fossil forum! However, I am not new to paleontology. I am 13 and have been obsessed with fossils since before I could walk. I have two fossils I need identified, the first one is a jawbone I bought at a sale from a private collector. I recognize that it is probably not valuable, but I would like it identified. The man who sold it (he was a naturalist) identified it as a herbivorous lizard's partial mandible, anybody able to shed some light on it? The other fossil is what I presume to be a footprint cast, I have had two geologists look at it and
