  1. This one has me a bit stumped. It's pretty tiny. Sorry for forgetting the measuring device but its 3/8" or 9.53 mm. I've researched the heck out of it and have no hollow teeth from there let alone this small? Thanks so much!!

    Hollow Bones from Hell Creek Microsite

    Hey everyone, Here are a few bones I found at a microsite in the Hell Creek formation this summer near Baker, Montana. All of these shown below are hollow, so I'm assuming they are theropod, but I was wondering if anyone could identify them further. Not sure how specific you can get with fragments like this, but any advice would be helpful. Thanks!

    hollow ribs? pterosaur?

    Hi there, I’d like to get the expert opinion of you all. Could these be pterosaur ribs? i just know they’re from Whitney, Yorkshire. As you can see, they’re hollow, and all I know of, that would have little hollow ribs like that are pterosaurs, and avian dinosaurs, but I'd imagine it was very uncommon for articulated ribs from a raptor to make it to, and “survive” an aquatic deposit, intact and untouched, although I know pterosaur bones are sometimes found in aquatic fossil deposits, at least from coastal areas. I'm not sure what else would be found there with hollow ribs, and these also seem

    Equus Long Bone

    Unknown long bone. Found in Pleistocene material. Inland, Venice, Florida. Specimen measures 62mm wide x 46mm. Canal in pic: L5 is 13mm wide. I have found Equus teeth in same location. Overall length of this hollowed bone is 123mm to break. I could not find an image for the joint surface to compare. I recovered the Equus tooth (EQ_L7) in the same location. It is a M2, left (upper molar). Thank you for your ID assistance. -Regards, Michael

    Is this a Fossil?

    Greetings all, first post! So I found this bone in the Olentangy River (Columbus, Ohio) the other day, sort of looked out of place? It passed the flame test, is it a fossil?
  6. The lockdown has given me some time to go through some of my finds from the last year. I had another closer look at this fossil that I found at a Cretaceous marine site here in New Zealand. It almost looks like it could be a hollow bone? Has anyone got any idea what it could be?

    Bird bone?

    Found the below tiny bone in the Peace River. It is hollow and apporx. 1" long. Looks like a ball in a lacrosse stick at first glance. From information on the forum and a search for bird bone images I think it is in fact a tiny bird bone. I would appreciate opinions from anyone with experience with this type of bone. Tried to get a photo of the hollow end but it didn't come out well. Thanks!

    Tyrannosaur bone structure

    Hi, does anyone know if theropod bones are completely hollow. I saw this for sale and was wondering whether it was theropod or just float because it wasn't fully hollow but had gaps and holes, the website wouldn't allow me to copy the image though.
  9. Found near McFaddin Beach Texas. It feels like bone but the walls are thin and it is hollow. Inner ear bone? Some sort of urchin?

    Modern Bone?

    Hey everyone, I found this bone in the White River Formation and when I started to prep it, it made me think that it might be modern bone. The bone is hollow and when I was prepping it, the bone would crumble and break really easily if you tried to snap it. Does anyone know if it’s modern?

    Mystery item found in western ND

    Hi everyone, I came across this object earlier this evening and I was wondering if anyone could help me figure out what it is. It was found embedded in a soft rock (soft enough to scrape away large chunks with a pocket knife) with just a small cross-section exposed. It first grabbed my attention because it appears round and hollow in cross-section, and was a different color and harder than the surrounding material. The rock it was found in was at the top of a hill, and located in western North Dakota, just barely across the border from Montana. My friend and I tried to brainstorm what it

    Theropod bone?

    Hi, I am looking at this bone from the kem kem and i was wondering how do you tell the difference between a theropod bone and a crocodilian bone?. The bone is hollow but only a bit (the hollow part still has matrix in it), does the morphology of this bone suggest theropod? Thanks.
  13. I bought this in a market in Chiapas, Mexico. They told me that it was from San Juan Cancuc, Chiapas, Mexico and it was found underwater. I have no other info. I have noticed some line marks inside the tube.
  14. These are not labeled as any specific bone, but I'm very curious as to what they are. I can't even imagine what the "bone" inside another bone would b! I'm assuming it's not marrow. It's supposed to be from a hollow boned dino. Someone I asked who isn't a novice, but works more with mammal fossils, said the only thing he can think of that he's seen like that, is a tusk. I'm guessing the second bone(pic 3&4)is the same type of situation, if not the actual same type of bone, that at one point had the filled in center also.

    Hollow Reptile Egg Fossil

    Hey guys! I'm curious about this egg fossil I've got here – it's been preserved with its hollow shell intact and sort of crystalized. I know there are loads of these eggs out there, but I've never seen one like this before so I'm wondering how unusual it really is. The other egg seems to be solid when held under a bright light. Here's what I know about it: – Ophidienovum sp – From a snake, I think – Tertiary/Miocene – From Mainz, Germany – Eggs are 2cm long Would love to hear your input!
  16. Found this while fossil hunting in Lyme Regis U.K. I’m pretty new to this and stumped so if anyone can help me figure out what it is...
  17. Hi everyone, I saw this nice small bone fossil for sale online and the seller has it listed as a possible unidentified Pterosaur fossil. It is from the Kem Kem and is just over 1.5 inches long. It is hollow inside and i just want to hear the possibility of this being a Pterosaur bone. Are there any other groups of animals this fossil could belong to? Birds or theropod dinosaurs? or maybe fish?. I know that Pterosaurs and other animals are poorly understood from that formation so i guess it is near impossible to tell, but maybe it could be narrowed down. Thanks.

    Bone Shard, Humerus? Cretaceous?

    Curious to see if anyone can ID this bone fragment? Thanks! Bison? Deer? It was found in the Fredericksburg / Eagle Ford groups, thereabouts.

    Ordovician Unknown

    Found this at a site that had a rock slide. The cliff is Decorah shale and Platteville limestone. Thought this was a Rugosa Coral on site. When I returned home and cleaned it up a bit, it appeared like something I had yet to find. It is very thin/delicate and hollow. The other Platteville unknown that I found was this: Will be patiently waiting!!!! Mike
  20. Hello there (new member here) I'm needing some help ID'ing this strange fossil. I went to a city wide Gem and Mineral show today and happened to run across a bin filled with dig tailings from ether Morocco, or Egypt. Not sure as to where actually they are from but Spinosaurus teeth fragments were found in the same bin along with Sawtooth and unknown croc sp. fragments. I did inquire as to what it was and where they were from but I was told they were just trash and I could take it or leave it. This fossil is very knobby about halfway down, reminds me of Gila Monster beads. I

    Intact Hollow Fossil Fish?

    Hi, I came across something that looks like a fish fossil. It feels like wood shaped in the form of a fish. It looks perfectly like a fish, but I do not know what it is. Please find attached the photos of the same. It would be wonderful if you could help me in identifying what it is.
