Pterosaur or ophthalmosaurus jaw?
sjaak posted a topic in Fossil IDHello, I found this bone in the marine deposits of the Boulonnais, France. Upper Jurassic. I assumed it is a part of the jaw (snout) of a toothless ophthalmosaurus, which are abundant there (mainly vertebrae). However, this week I read the article about a toothless pterosaur jaw from the UK and saw some resemblance. https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-cambridgeshire-54891483 I added the pictures of the bone, the pterosaur and an ophthalmosaurus for comparison. I am curious about your thoughts. Regards, Niels

Another trip to the Danube Valley
Ludwigia posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsI spent the afternoon today exploring the ditches in the Upper Danube Valley and found something in all 3 of them. Spent most of my time at the regular ditch by the side of the road in the end where I've been slowly excavating the Kimmeridgian hypselocylum zone every couple of months or so for the last few years. I took a couple of photos of the work in progress and also one of my finds. I'll post them here again once they're prepped.

Tooth predator Smilodon or sea reptile?
Terra posted a topic in Fossil IDTooth. Found in Poland by the river, on the beach among stones. Tooth resembles a predatory tooth "Smilodon", but maybe from a different period, for example jura. Is the marine reptile? Look at its curvature and structure in macro pictures. I am asking for help with ID
help needed with ID of Jurassic bone
sjaak posted a topic in Fossil IDI put this before on the FB page but like to try here as well. This partly eroded bone was found in Jurassic sediments in the Boulonnais area in the North of France. The sediments are marine but the sea was not far from the beach and sometimes terrestrial animals (dinosaurs) can be found. I thought this a vertebra; but no neural arch showing and the shape is weird; it looks a bit like a carpal/ tarsal bone of a big animal but I may be seeing to much. Perhaps a paddle bone of a marine animal is another option? Hope you can help me. Regards, Niels
Is this a fossil, and if so of what?
Reuben_Pitts posted a topic in Fossil IDI found this in Jura, Switzerland, near Courtedoux, about a kilometre from one of the sites where dinosaur tracks were discovered in 2002 (https://www.myswitzerland.com/en-us/dinosaur-traces-courtedoux.html). I was wondering whether it was a fossil of something, and if so of what?
ID Jurassic bone: help needed
sjaak posted a topic in Fossil IDHello again, I found this bone in the North of France, Boulonnais, in Jurassic deposits. The fossils found here are mainly marine but sometimes terrestial. I have no idea what this bone might be. It is rather complete and I guess that it has some characteristics which would make ID possible. Especially, the "branch" on the right of the first pictures. The bone goes a little bit deeper into the matrix, approx 2-3 cm. See the last picture. Hopefully, somebody can help me. Regards, Niels
