  1. This is the first description of the first dinosaur fossils in Palestine in the Levant. Which turns out to be a tracksite in Al-Bireh likely belonging to an Ornithopod (Trackway1) and a Theropod (Trackway2) with 6 other trackways also mapped using photogrammetry. The possibilities of some being of a Sauropod is entertained but not considered likely. Also very interestingly it acts as a "how to guide" in identifying track ways with poor morphological features and how to distinguish them from other sediment traces that mimmick track ways. Despite the obviously
  2. I found this tooth on the beach in Tel-aviv, Israel. I looked up some photos and I think it may be an equus tooth. There haven’t been horses on that beach for a very long time so I’m wondering what time period it could be from. Thoughts?

    Ptychodus polygyrus

    Hi there everybody, it's been a while I was on the forum. But I stumbled on 65+ associated teeth of Ptychodus polygyrus. My question is, how can you tell the difference between an upper and a lower tooth of Ptychodus polygyrus?
  4. Hi, Is it possible to say more than Baculites on this specimen? It is 12mm in diameter. Campanian, Mishash foration, Israel (Central Negev area). Many thanks, Oz
  5. Hi, found these at the samel spot, Hamachtesh Hagadol, Negev area, Israel. Jurassic. Both are about 25mm wide. I think they belong to the same species as the smooth one (left photo) was also found with some minor details resembling the right one. Any direction would be very appreciated. Many thanks in advance, Oz

    Fish scale fossils in flint.

    While flint knapping, I found some fish scales inside the flint. The flint was a nodule inside a miocene conglomerate in northern Israel. The flint is most likely to be Eocene flint that rolled its way from a distance. Specimen A is one centimeter long, B is 5 mm and specimen C is aprox 2 mm. I hope some of you can help me identify the fish species or families. Thank you!

    New Type of Human From Israel.

  8. Hi all! I found this limestone ammonite fossil in mount Carmel, Israel. Diameter is approximately 19cm. I removed the stone matrix from one of its sides and exposed a few remnants of something that looks like a coil running along the inner curves of the fossil (also mistakenly removed part of it when I just begun revealing it). I added 2 pictures that present the fossil and the detail I don't recognize. Can anyone help me identify this coil-like artifact? Thank you! :-)

    Some fossils I found in north Israel

    Hello, here are some fossils I found in northern Israel in the oren river. I found a lot of rocks that where filled with fossils and mainly ammonites. If anyone knows the species of these fossils I would be happy to know that. I know that there are a lot of real fossil experts in this forum so I figured maybe these fossils will be helpful to someone (maybe it's an unknown species or a species that was not found in this area). I added a covid mask for general size reference and I would be happy to hear anything you have to say about these fossils.

    Fossil find question

    Hi all, I found this rock with an assortment of fossils in Israel and i am looking to find an answers to some questions i have out of curiosity. Info: Location found - Ayalon Valley River, Israel Mineral - The stone is Limestone with partially metamorphic dolostone The fossils and the imprints are crystalized, if i were to guess i would go with dolomite or calcite crystals.

  12. Hello all Up for trade is this set of South-American teeth. It includes 11 Chilean and 4 Peruvian teeth. The C. chubutensis, Isurus desori and Carcharhinus cf. brachyurus (the last three are on the right side) are from Peru. The others (Megachasma pelagios, C. hastalis, Carcharhinus cf. brachyurus, Isurus retroflexus and a fish tooth labelled as dog fish (not sure if correct) and some unidentified teeth. The C. hastalis is just over 2 inch. The Megachasma pelagios is around 2 cm. The C. chubutensis is just under 2 inch and has a crack in the root, but is broken. More precise locati

    Does anyone know the best sites for finding fossils in Israel? I am spending the summer there and want to make the most of the geology. I know there are cretaceous formations somewhere but I am not sure where specifically.

    “Beyond Fossilized” Bones?

    I found these “two styles” of what I believe are unusually fossilized bones on the beach in Tel Aviv. Rather than ask for your input on them individually, I am looking for an idea of “the process” that occurred, and then will ask about what they are (please feel free to answer both at once....). The items on the left are a very pale tan. The ones on the right are the ones that have me totally baffled. They are more of a light gray. Thank you!
  17. This ENTIRE ROCK is a fossilized “something”.... part of an animal? I hope the pictures show all of the unusual features, etc.

    Hi there, i'm a newbie. Sorry pls correct me if i do something wrong. I found root fragment of a Sharktooth 5 years ears ago in the Negev Israël, and i believe its a carcharoles. In a month i'm going for a Sharktooth Hunt again in that part of the Negev desert. Hoping Cor a good haul. Anyway to make a long story short. I found many many creataceous sharkteeth in the Negev. Almost every specie. But what i can understand that i found a tooth fragment from an younger era. Hope somebody can give me clues to find out which Carcharoles specie t
  19. Hi All, An acquaintance of mine noticed this fossil, embedded in a step stone in his parents’ garden, after many years it sat there unacknowledged... I don’t have a lot of information about it, but what I do know is that it’s in Israel, the stone’s origin is most likely from a strip mine 5km west of Jerusalem (Kfar Shaul), the total length of the fossil is 6.7 cm (~2.64 inches) and that it’s a limestone with a reddish hue… unfortunately that’s about it. Personally, I’m not even able to determine whether this is a fish or not… but I’m definitely curious…

  22. Being a newbie to fossil collecting, I usually go to the same creek on mount Carmel (Israel), which is a 10 minute drive from where I live. This time I tried another location, less than 2 km away from my “usual” spot, and to my surprise, although I couldn’t find any of the specimens I usually do (which are mainly ammonites) - I did find 3 pretty large fossils of another type of sea snail, which I’m not familiar with… I’ve attached pictures of 2 of them (those that were in a better condition) and also a picture with a scale to better present their size… Could anyone help me identify them?

    Please help me identify

    Hi, I found this specimen in a place I usually find ammonites, nautilus and sea shell. I'm not sure what this is, even not if this is actually a fossil... The matrix, and the outer part of the specimen itself is limestone while its interior is flint. I tried to carefully remove some of the matrix using a cp engraving pen... but the more I uncover it the less I understand what it is I'm looking at... and I'm really curious :-) I've attached a colleague image with pictures I took from different angles... Anyone has an idea? I'd like to hear from you! Thanks...
  24. These first two fossils I picked up while hiking mountains in the negev desert in Israel. I think one of them is a sea shell with a barnacle on it. I'm not sure about the other tubular one. The final one is what I believe is some sort of mako.
  25. Hi all, This is from the central Negev area in Israe. About 30mm in diameter. If needed I can upload more photos from different angles. Many thanks, Oz
