  1. 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?

    Big Brook #8

    saturday was my 8th trip to Big Brook and came away with shark teeth, a (modern) deer jawbone, a Jergens Lotion glass bottle (1970s?) and a really cool iridescent rock the likes of which i've never seen there before. And possibly a lobster fossil.

    Fish Spine or Jaw bone Maybe?

    I have found several of these fossils over the last few months and would love some help identifying them. Most are small, less than 1 inch long and difficult for me to photograph with any real detail. But the last one I found is much larger by comparison. It's just a fragment but it's about an inch and a half long and 1/2 inch wide. They all taper from one end to the other and they all have raised bumps down one edge and a deep groove along the other edge. The flat sides are textured. They were all found in a creek in Southwest Alabama, US alongside Eocene shark, ray and sawfi

    Unknown Jawbone Please Help

    I found this jaw bone in mexico on a beach and have no idea what it is. It’s blue which i think is especially weird. Thanks for all your help! One picture is next to my dog for size lol.
  17. In the course of my unprofessional research (mostly online, museums, personal finds, friends, etc..) I have only seen one mammoth tooth still "fully" incased in the jawbone. I'm sure that hundreds if not thousands must exist, but would like to know how rare or common it is to find a Mammoth tooth encased in the jawbone. Thanks for any feedback. Mike

    Found fossil - don't know what it is

    Hi I found this fossil while on a hike in the Negev desert in Israel. It has been bugging me for years and I hope someone can help me identify it? (hand for scale)
  19. Hello everyone, looking for some help in IDing this fossil. We think it's a tooth embedded in a jawbone, found in a Western New York riverbank. Thanks!

    Small jaw bone with tooth

    Hi there! Found this tiny piece of jawbone at a land site in Venice, FL. It looks like it has at least one whole tooth left in it. The jaw is 1.5” long and the tooth itself is about .5” wide. I’m not sure of the formation or period unfortunately. I did find meg teeth next to it so leads me to believe I’m possibly digging in Miocene- Pliocene? Is this a correct assumption, or not always? Thank you for any ideas and/or info. I LOVE this site! A world wide community of folks who inspire passion and continuous learning. How incredible! Marie

    Skull, Teeth, Jawbone, etc.

    Hello everyone and thanks in advance for any help or ideas. Earlier this summer my friend moved to South Dakota and purchased a home. A few days ago he was cleaning out a shed on the property and found a cardboard box filled with the fossils seen below. It is unknown if the prior owner had found these on the property or if they had been purchased elsewhere. So unfortunately he has no idea where or when these were originally found. Neither of us have much experience in this but obviously fossils such as these catch your attention! If anyone wants or needs additional pictures let me know and I w

    Mystery Jaw

    So I have a new mystery. I found this jawbone in miocene gravel. I found mastodon enamel right next to this. I believe this jaw to either be a cat of some kind or raccoon. It shows signs of being both fossilized and not. It's hard a little heavy and sounds like stone when hit against other stone objects, with a slightly less hard tink sound than that of my sharks teeth but it still sounds like stone. The teeth are still white though, however the two smaller teeth have hard sediment still attached to them and the larger tooth has similar sediment stuck in the part of the tooth that is missing.
  25. I was recently collecting down on the south fork of the nemaha river, looking through the glacial till gravel, and discovered this very well preserved jawbone. I am unsure of its age or species. Any information would be great to have. I can post other angles of it if needed
