  1. Hi and thanks for looking at this. While looking for shark teeth in Northwestern New Mexico, I coaxed out a nodule that had half weathered out of the lower section of a sandstone ridge. It was fairly large (approx. 2ft diameter) and was crumbling apart, so I only grabbed the big piece as I thought the quartz looked pretty cool. It cracked open on the ride home and revealed what I think is a fossilized bone. It is a small bone and I'm not sure it can be identified; maybe a confirmation that it is actually a bone fossil would be great. The pictures are terrible right? This phone....

    Fossil bone piece

    Found this and some smaller pieces. On gravel bed in brazos river south of Houston. I’m a bottle and point collector who just found out. I’ve been walking by, picking up an throwing back down fossil bones and teeth for 23 years. Thinking they were from the animals of today. And surly a lot of them were. In my mind fossils were inside rocks in the mountains not on gravel beds in the creeks and rivers of south east Texas. But I digress... anyone have any idea what this may be?

    Fossil bone identification

    Found this piece of fossil bone on gravel bar on brazos river gravel bar. Close to Rosharon Texas. Maybe not enough bone to identify but here it is.
  4. So I found this at Post Oak Creek, Sherman, Texas. I know it is a vertebra, but I can't tell if it is fossil or modern bone. Is there a way to distinguish between the two for a fossil of this size?
  5. These are a couple smaller vertebrae and a bone I found on the Judith River Formation, I was hoping to get an opinion on what dinosaur they would be from. Thanks.

    New Bay Mystery

    Hi everyone. I went to Calvert Cliffs last week & found an interesting piece of bone. I have dozens of bone fragments from the Bay, but almost all of them are linear. This one is much more rounded. It is slightly bigger than a quarter. It might be too small to identify, but I thought it was worth sharing. It doesn't look turtle-y to me, but I guess that is a possibility.
  7. I have some new additions to my collection and a few of them are missing labels. The minerals are well labeled in this collection but the fossils are not. Most are classic specimens from well known localities so no problems there. This bone however has me thinking. Its short, thick, and stocky (115mm x 76mm x 58mm). My first thought was sloth/glypto. ?? Any help as always is appreciated.
  8. This "rock" was interesting to me because of it's smoothed angles & interesting horizonal lines on inside. Feels polished with so many angles. About 1 11/16 long by 1.5" by 1/2" at thickest point. Found in mountains of East Tennessee. Color is actually more brown than photos, not black. Please see all pics for angles. Any info appreciated!
  9. Perhaps someone could shed light on these 2 hollow bones. The little one came in abag of misc bones years ago and has a fused joint ? at end, the big one I just dont remember . The little bone maybe has a faint smell when burnt, not positive. The big one has zero smell when burnt. The big one is heavy, the little one feather light. If someone could suggest species and if dinosaur would be great.

    Unknown fossil bone

    Unfortunately , I cannot add much info on where this was found. To be honest I plan on using it as a handle for a steak knife. Unless it is something of value or rarity. Any comments welcome. It would be great to know if this is a dino bone or what species. It is fairly heavy and hollow inside.

    Bone fragment?

    So I have had this on my desk for a couple years and finally got around to bothering a local paleontologist about it, because it's a bit unique for the location. I have never knowingly handled guaranteed fossilized bone before but other hobbyists who have handled it have said it is. Now, they've also said a lot of other things that I know aren't bone were bone, so... we'll see what I hear back! At any rate, what do you all think? Am I asking a silly question? My end of the Clarno formation is not known for mammal fossils but we're within reasonable distance, in Oregon terms, of th
  12. This was located approximately 20 miles from Lost Forest, Fossil lake area in SE Oregon on some property my folks own. Sorry the ruler isn't lined up better but you can get a good idea of the size. Any help identifying is appreciated. Thanks!
  13. Afternoon everybody. I found this in Feb 2020, after Storm Dennis, on my same south Suffolk beach. I've looked at many vertebrae images online and in books, and none seem quite right. It looks closest to a seal...? But that doesn't seem right. Thanks for any guidance!

    Fossil Bone

    Found this reputed "fossil bone" specimen five feet below the ground in sandy soil near the Delaware River in Southern New Jersey at the site where a 85' tulip poplar tree fell and lifted the root ball. Identified as "glacial, river worn fossil bone" by Gary's Gem Garden in Mt Laurel, NJ. Any thoughts as to the whether the structure of the reputed ''fossil bone' may be of biological origin? Thanks for your thoughts!
  15. Found this piece on a walk near a Triassic outcrop in Pennsylvania, has a pretty exact visual similiarity to the wing rib of a Triassic reptile but is likely just some form of sedimentary trace. It would be great to get some more opinions on this piece to see if its worth holding onto or I would label it to be definitely sedimentary and rid of it, which I feel is the case.

    Oddly shaped bone in pebble from Cap Gris Nez

    Hi all, Found this pebble on the beach close to Audresselles (Cap Gris Nez area, Boulonnais) amidst the heavy rain and wind yesterday. Initially, I thought it was just a piece of odd-looking fossilised plant-material, with a faint thought in the back of my mind that may be it could be a fish skull. When I checked it this morning, I was able to confirm the piece is smooth on the outside, and seems to have what appears to be bone fibres on the inside. In other words, I'm convinced now that it actually is bone, though still have no idea what kind...

    Dinosaur bone

    Hi, I was wondering if anyone could tell me what this is? It is 1 3/4 inches by 1 inch, and most likely from the hell creek formation.

    Fossil bone or interestingly shaped jasper?

    Hello everyone, I found this in Washington State, Pleistocene, near Mason County. Suggestive piece of jasper or fossil bone? And I apologize for not using metric. I couldn't find my other measurer... Your thoughts would be appreciated. Chris

    Is This A Whale Vertebra?

    This piece was found in a pleistocene deposit off the New Jersey coast and was labeled as Whale, hard to find any comparisons so I am unsure this is the case though its likely, any help on this will be appreciated. measures 3 x3 x 2 1/2 in
  23. Hello, can anyone identify what mammal these bones may have come from? I know with some it may be very difficult, but any help would be appreciated. All fossils other than the first one that was found from a borehole from the north sea 46 metres down are from Happisburgh, all Norfolk, UK. I will post the next fragments after this post.
