    What animal? How old?

    Hi, I'm brand new here. I enjoy being out in nature and collecting bones and rocks I find. Just the other day I found this jaw bone on the banks of a creek near my house in El Dorado County California. It looks to be the size of a cow or horse jaw. I would love to know what animal you all think it is from and especially how old it looks. The blueish color of the teeth has me really intrigued. Thanks for any ideas.

    Could it be a jawbone?

    This is opal from Australia

    Bone Fragment

    I found this in one of the creeks (bayou) here in southwest Mississippi. I have found a number of mastodon parts in the same. The most noticeable feature is a curved channel, much like that of a tooth canal. Does anyone know what part of what beast if might have belonged to? Thanks in advance.

    Jaw bone

    Found this jawbone in Summerville, SC yesterday. Have found both angustidens and a meg here, so there are multiple epochs. Bone is filled in with matrix and has a very noticeable groove along the side. Any ideas as to what it could be from? Thank you!

    Goose Creek teeth and jawbone

    Went to my two favorite spots yesterday and found quite a bit. Even though one spot usually produces frags, they at least had the cusps still on them this time, so I was able to identify 2 angustidens and 2 chubs (my first ones!). Need help with two teeth and some sort of jaw piece. Tooth 1: Tooth 1 Tooth 1 Tooth 1 Here is tooth 2: Tooth 2 Tooth 2 Tooth 2 And for the little jaw piece: Jaw with teeth Jaw with teeth Jaw with teeth Jaw with teeth There is a mix of epochs there

  9. Found this fossil recently. looks like its possible tooth sockets and the material is very bone like but it has a secondary medium meshed with it, which is what alerted me to it being a fossil. i thought it was just a cool unique rock at first or a native american artifcact considering my finger fit perfectly in the socket. I thought it may be broken clay pottery or just some sort of tool. you guys think it could be from iguanadon? similar features for sure.

    Tiny Jawbone

    This piece is so small that it's difficult to get a good pic but let me know if you think I should try again. It was found in a creek in Maryland about 20 miles inland from the Calvert Cliffs. Found several fossil shark and ray teeth there. I'm pretty confident this is a jawbone with one tooth still attached but would like to know what it belonged to if anyone has any ideas.
  12. Hello FossilForum, any help in identifying these pieces I have included would be greatly appreciated! I believe these are various types of teeth and jaw pieces and some entire skulls included. I have numerous crocodile skulls I believe. Thanks for looking and any info or help! TURTLE SHELL? This is what I think is a chunk of a Turtle Shell. SKULLS? Front Back Skull #2 TEETH:

    The not knowing is killing me!

    Hi everyone, I’ve posted here before and have been absolutely amazed at everyone’s collective knowledge and help. So I got a friend into fossil hunting and she recently went to South Carolina hunting creek beds. I like to help her with identifying her finds but this one has me stumped. I told her to post here but she hasn’t and said I could do it for her so here ya go……..really curious what people think. Thanks so much for any help.

    Dog or wolf jawbone

    I have this jawbone that is found i Denmark. The teeth shows that it is a very young animal, because there are very little wear. There is the possibility that it could be one of several missing young wolves but I do not have the experience to see the difference between wolf and dog. I hope some of you might have the ability to identify the jawbone Thank you very much. The measurements are in centimeters.

    A few interesting finds

    Hello everyone, First time posting here so sorry if I mess this up or offend anyone for a newbie asking for some ID help. On a recent trip to some of our Northern New Jersey spots, I’ve come across two things I have never found before and one vertebrae that I was hoping someone could maybe point me in a direction towards. All from Holmdel area. Images 1 and 2 is possibly coprolite? Has small “shell like” crust to it in some spots. 3,4,5,6,7,8, and 9 is a small tooth in a piece of jaw bone or a claw piece possibly? Last four is the vert found. Roug

    Crocodilian Jaw id

    Hello! My mother found this crocodilian jawbone a while ago, and I was wondering if any of you could identify which species it belongs to. It comes from the Miocene of Ruwais, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.

    Help Identifying Jaw and Teeth

    Hi, As a return to the fossil forum after years without using this account, I come with another fossil that I cannot identify. It is a small jaw with teeth, which appears to be in amazing condition, that was purchased in a small rock collection in New Jersey. I have no idea of its origins. The teeth appear to be somewhat sharp, and the jaw starts a broken point and ends at a curved part that would presumably end in the center portion of the animal's jaw. From the break, you can see that the fossil is almost entirely empty. Any information is appreciated, Aiden

    Found in Cherry Grove, South Carolina It sort of looked like a section of jawbone. The shiny bead imbedded looks very similar to drumfish teeth I have found in the area. The round shaped thing next to it isn't shiny like tooth enamel usually is so I'm not sure about that one. But I can't tell if this is some sort of steinkern with a tooth or if it's even a tooth or jaw fragment at all. It's about the size of a quarter.

    Help Identify Jawbone

    Here is what I believe to be a portion of a dinosaur jawbone found in an Upper Cretaceous portion of the Morrison Formation of N. America (sorry if that area is a bit vague). I have other fossilized bits found with it I will be adding to this post soon. Thanks for your ideas on this one.

    Hell Creek dinosaur jaw section

    Hey y'all, I have this jaw section from Hell Creek. It was sold by a small rock shop as "triceratops." I wasn't sure that it was, but bought it anyway. Is there a way to distinguish between ceratopsian and hadrosaur jaws? Or more specifically, are there identifiable features on this bone to assign it to either ceratopsian, hadrosaur, or neither?
