  1. I always have trouble telling if jaws are real or manufactured. As far as I can tell this looks real (but incomplete). Let me know if I'm missing something. Looks like there's some bonus verts in the matrix as well.
  2. Is this a genuine Mosasaurus jaw fossil? If anyone knows, please let me know. Production area: Morocco Size: Long diameter of mother rock about 30 cm I appreciate everyone's comments! thank you very much!
  3. Hi I am hoping for a little help with this jaw I am thinking of buying please. Listed as Juvenile Woolly Rhino jaw, perma frost find. Has been cleaned and preserved. I have stupidly made a bid on it that if needs be I will reluctantly with draw if need to, but auction ends tomorrow night (Monday) so any thoughs or help is appreciated! Fingers crossed as I like the look of it. Have a sneaky feeling it might be Horse though! Cheers!
  4. I went to the North Sulphur River twice in October with little luck. The first time was after a rain that I thought would get a big rise but only got about a 1 foot rise. The second time saw about a 5 foot rise but each time the rain did nothing to wash away all the mud. It was easy walking because the river was so low and dry but no gravel bars as they are all covered in mud. I went to two different parts of the river as well as the feeder creeks and it was the same. Here are a few pictures of the little I was able to find: Some worn chunckasaur, petrified wood, pyrite sun (cool b

    Jaw from Santa Maria formation, Brazil

    Hello! A collector from Brazil has shown me this fossil. Any idea what this partial jaw could be? It is from Santa Maria formation, Brazil. I don't know if it could be from a Dinosaur... it seems too big to be from a prosauropod... Could it be theropod? Or maybe reptilian or synapsid? Thank you very much.
  6. Hi friends! My friend found this while digging in a creek in Polk county, central Florida. Our best guess is horse of some kind? Sorry there is no ruler included in the pictures, but for reference, the white bucket in the picture is a standard 5 gallon plastic bucket. He thinks it's a lower jaw piece but I'm thinking it's upper. The pointy forked protrusion has me especially curious, as I have not seen that in the pictures I've been finding. I would greatly appreciate any thoughts and guidance Thanks!
  7. After no rain for many months we got a big 13 foot rise last weekend. I was hoping that would wash away all the mud and uncover many great fossils. Unfortunately it was still few and far between. The mud has been halfway washed away, which is halfway to where we want it, but the fossils are still not uncovered. Here are a few of the things i found: A couple decent but small mosasaur verts. Also the in situ shots. Decent fish jaw. Not sure which species though. A cool shell from the grey shale zone. All I eve
  8. Hello, I found this on my trip a few days ago to Hill Cnty, MT and need some help. It is a jaw, or tooth plate, that is 1.25" long. I wish the teeth were complete! I have provided several views but it seems that my phone can't take good pics anymore, I don't know what happened to it. It is annoying but these are the best pics I could get. Thanks for any help!
  9. These are all out of the same estate auction as my earlier posts. One of the members, found that much of the collection was posted on this site by the former owner but these weren’t. I sent him a message but doubt I will hear back given the nature of estate auctions. Any help identifying these is as always greatly appreciated.
  10. Hi everyone, I am trying to find the following stuff someone is willing to trade. - Mosasaurus partial jaws or matrix pieces, not repaired or restored. From Morocco. - Belgian Megalodon teeth - Mastodon tooth - Quality Spinosaurus teeth, larger ones. I got a lot to offer, mostly teeth and jaws from dinosaurs and ice age relater animals.

    Badlands jaws (carnivore?)

    Hello, I purchased a huge box of Badlands mammal stuff a while ago and was able to identify mostly everything. I had some trouble with these two jawbones, though. I'm not really expecting them to be anything surprising but it would help me to put a definite label on them. in both the teeth looked a little like an amphicyonid's but that might just be wishful thinking! Thanks again! #1 #2: For scale

    Show Us Your Dinosaur Jaws!

    Show us your dinosaur jaws! I recently got my first piece. A partial dentary of a juvenile Edmontosaurus from the Hell Creek. After scanning it with photogrammetry I also mirrored the jaw to create the right side of the jaw as well. Quite happy with how the scan turned out too.
  13. Found these in eastern NC river this weekend and could use some help identifying. It was in an area most likely Yorktown , found among great white teeth, a horse tooth, tilly bones, whale bone and some shell fragments. Lot of reworked material in the gravel. This item looks like the bones of the front of a lower jaw to me but these holes off to the sides confuse me - they are rounded inside like a tooth or tusk might have sat in them but the angles are odd - I could be wishful thinking here - just seemed out of the ordinary to me. Then the other is a bone it’s much lighter and the p

    Dinosaur jaw section?

    Hello I saw this jaw section online for sale, I was wondering what it could be from, the seller listed as albertosaurus but I highly doubt that for many reasons. Anyways I wanted to know what dinosaur group it may have came from, I was thinking maybe ceratopsian or hadrosaur? It’s from Judith river, I also was wondering how (if possible) you tell the difference between a theropod and herbivore jaw section. Many thanks

    Fish jaw? What kind?

    Hi all! What do you think about this piece? The size is under 2 cm. I'm a bit confused about the structure below the teeth (unfortunately it's shattered and only parts remain). It doesn't look like bone - smooth and transparent and also appears pimply . Is it normal? Middle Oxfordian clay, Moscow vicinity
  19. Pliosaur

    Pliosaurus Kevani Jaw Section?

    Dredged from the Smallmouth Sands off Weymouth Harbor, Dorset. Specimen is from the Late Jurassic Epoch, Kimmeridgian Age Clay - between 157.3 to 152.1 +/- Ma (million years ago). Specimen has an exposed tooth (root portion) with enamel measuring 4.72 inches in length and 1.67 inches in width (see measurements all taken with digital calipers). Other measurements include 3.38" in specimen width (maxillary bone) Tooth position appears to be tooth #6 from the very tip of the snout, including the two tiny teeth at the terminus. This is based on angle of projection,
  20. This is a Pleistocene Cave Bear jaw from Romania. I'd like to know if this is authentic and if there has been restoration? Thanks.
  21. Hello, I have a mosasaur jaw that I wanted to see if it was real or fake. Most of the fakes I've seen were with both the upper and lower jaws. Thank you!
  22. I have never found a jaw like this. The only thing I can find that is similar is tapir which would be pretty rare for this area. Found in south central South Dakota. Miocene
  23. Looking at purchasing a Mosasarus jaw. What do you guys think of this fossil? Is it authentic or composite? I appreciate the feedback. Respectfully, Kirk

  25. Hello everyone! This is a partial mosasaur jaw with other associated bones i found in the Early-Mid Campanian Woodbury Formation of New Jersey over the summer. One of my best finds to date.
