    Marine reptile fossils?

    Hi everyone, I recently took over a collection of fossils from an estate. I think these are marine reptiles, but I'm not sure which species. The labels that had localities were lost by the time I got them. The one without a head is about 43 cm. The other is about 35 cm. Any help on species or where they may have come from is appreciated!

    Cretaceous Jaw Section

    Hi there everyone! I recently came across this beautiful jaw section earlier and I was wondering if there was anyone who could help me identify what animal it’s from. The listing states that it was found in Powder River County, Montana, and is listed as a “reptile jaw”. At first glance through my untrained eye I believed it to be crocodilian in nature. But after a little research I now think it could be Taiidae (lizard). Im still very new to this and I could obviously be entirely wrong so I’d greatly appreciate your guys’ feedback. Thank you guys
  4. Are Mosasaurs considered lizards?
  5. Midwest fossil

    Tiny embryo

    Hi any suggestions on this one.
  6. I found this fossils in a northern Michigan riverbed. It is 3 grams. I don’t know what it is but there is clearly a lizard like animal with visible head and limbs and torso. There is also a spiral fetus like fossil visible on it’s surface. I would say 60% of this rock is preserved biomass of what looks like about 3 different specimens. I uploaded images of it dry, wet, and exposed to steam in a bathroom…

  8. Found an interesting fossil in my Nat Geo fossil and gemstone kit. Looks like the head of a bird, lizard, or maybe even a tiny dinosaur. Location unknown. US Quarter for scale. Fossil learning guide doesn't say anything about this fossil. Please help identify.

    I have very little knowledge of fossils. My yard is full of decorative rocks collected from the Washougal, Washington area. I picked this one up and noticed the lizard image in it. When brushing the rock the image(s) emerged more and more. I’m worried I might damage the fossil(?) as the rock is hard and doesn’t brush away easily. Can you tell me anything about it? It measures about 10cm x 4cm
  10. I found this big rock that appears to be hematite with a lizard fossil on it. The pictures make it harder to tell but I see the head on the right and a foot bones just below it. The bottom picture is a closer look at the head and the front leg. If I need to zoom in better on any particular area let me know and I will post some more pictures. Does anybody think this is a fossil? Sure looks like it.
  11. Hi all! Very new to fossils, but hope to be stickin' around long term! While on a trip to Traverse City, MI this past weekend, I came across what appeared to be an amazing Moroccan crocodile skull fossil specimen (pics attached) at a mineral, fossil, and jewelry shop. The seller agreed to sell it for at a discount with guaranteed authenticity. I excitedly posted it on a fossil subreddit when I got home, and was immediately informed this specimen was an obvious fake from Morocco, and that Moroccan fossils are often fakes. One user specified the skull was likely constructed with san

    Scales, arm and a claw.

    Hi Guys, First of all, I'm not a fossil hunter, so forgive my vagueness. I stumbled across this about fifteen years ago whilst exploring an abandoned quarry in the North East of the UK. I can't remember exactly where it was, as I was only 15 at the time and had quite a poor sense of direction! It's quite interesting as it seems to have scales, and arm and a claw. Let me know what you guys think!

    Parasaniwa Tooth

    Happy New Year everyone. Tonight I thought I might post a fossil whose identity I wanted to confirm. I found it in Wyoming's Lance formation this summer and someone told me it might be a Pachycephalosaur premaxillary tooth because of it's carinae and ridges at the base. However after comparing my tooth to examples I could find online I felt that this ID was incorrect. Eventually I looked back over one of @Troodon's threads and found a jaw labelled as parasaniwa and those teeth matched what I had found. My tooth is about 6 mm long and about 3 mm wide.

    Lance fm. Potential Varanoid Tooth?

    Hi everyone, I found this small tooth over the summer in a Lance formation channel deposit in Wyoming. In the field I didn't know what to make of it, too recurved and compressed to be croc, no visible serrations either so probably not a non avian theropod. Months later I took a closer look at it and continued to search for its potential identity. I thought to myself could it be a mammal canine. After some online browsing I couldn't find a match for anything in the Hell Creek/Lance fauna. However, after posting it on an instagram story, I got a few suggestions. One of the more intriguing of tho

"This discovery adds a super-cool piece to the puzzle of this obscure group of weird little animals," said study co-author Edward Stanley, director of the Florida Museum of Natural History's Digital Discovery and Dissemination Laboratory. "Knowing they had this ballistic tongue gives us a whole new understanding of this entire lineage." https://phys.org/news/2020-11-earliest-rapid-fire-tongue-weird-extinct.html

    Isle of Wight Lizard Vertebra?

    This was found today in the shingle at Fort Victoria on the Isle of Wight and the geology is Solent Group so Late Eocene to Early Oligocene. I am aware that lizard jaws have been found here as well as snake vertebrae but this does not look like snake to me so wondered if it might be lizard? Any help to identify would be very much appreciated. Cheers Martyn

    Unknown Cretaceous Bones

    This is my first posting so I hope I am doing this correctly. I have a few bones that I have found in the Morin Bridge area, east of Three Hills, Alberta. It is Cretaceous era. The first is a small bone that looks like part of a skull, possibly lizard. The second set is a tooth. My guess is a worn crocodile but they are rather rare in that area. It is flat like a ray tooth but I think that is due to wear. It also has a single root rather than a split one like on a ray. The third is a large bone that has an unusual shape so I am hoping it is something someone would recognize. Thanks fo
  18. Hello everyone! I was just curious as to what you think of this specimen. I'm aware users here are (understandably) very sceptical of lizards in amber/copal, so I'd love to hear what you have toto say about it. Here are the details: Species is unknown From Colombia, thought to be from Pliocene/Pleistocene The lizard measures 30 millimetres. Total measurement with copal is 50 x 40 x 0.50 mm Full image: Base - partial tail and leg, with one foot visible on the right Torso - possible predation? Also note the little stump where th
  19. Hi everyone, I've been hesitant to post this fossil on here for a while as I didn't know if I wanted to hear a response which would contradict what I had hoped this would be. However, I recognize that to maintain a reliable and accurate collection I would have to properly identify what I found. The fossil in question is a possible partial egg that I found last year in the White River formation of Wyoming (Late Eocene/Early Oligocene) w/PaleoProspectors. This formation is known to produce fossil bird and reptile eggs (in fact, someone found a large, complete egg on this ranch the week before I
  20. Is this specimen a Barasaurus besairiei from Madagascar? Is it genuine? I have seen quite a number of these specimens imported from Madagascar to China but most of them were headless. But more recently, most of the imported specimens are rather complete with head. They are mostly in the form of split nodules, and so it seems like they are genuine. Any views?
  21. Which of these two would you pick? Both say some repair and restoration and I can see the repaired cracks and assuming the darker areas are the restored areas. I have no idea and the dark brown is on both unless it’s part of the glue and wondered if it would come off.
  22. Hi, I saw this in an antique store for sale. They are not sure what type it is and I have some ideas but not sure either. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Not the best picture, it is about 1 foot long. Also thoughts on real or fake.
