  1. Dino Dad 81


    Hey all, This is supposed to be from Isalo IIIb in Madagascar. Does it look ceratosaur to you? Could it be Majungasaurus with faulty location? I suspect not because of the character on the denticles of Majungasaurus teeth.

    help identifying this ammonite

    Hello everyone, I need your help to identify an ammonite. Today I bought one but I bought it in a place where they only sell minerals so when I asked where it was from or more information about the fossil they told me they didn't know. I am not a great expert but I understand that most ammonite fossils are from Madagascar, although I am not saying that this one is from there. My questions are the following: Is there any way to know the age and species of the ammonite? Before making the publication I was looking for a little information and I saw that it is very similar to Phylloceras due to
  3. hey , I purchased this leg bone in Tucson. The dealer told me that is a sauropod dinosaur leg bone from the Cretaceous strata of Madagascar. The key point is that the leg bone is attached with skin. I found that these black "skin" has wrinkles similar to real skin. Is this black "skin" real dinosaur skin? I searched some materials. Professor Kristi Curry Rogers found that Rapetosaurus had skin ossification. I would like to hear more comments, thank you!

    Petrified Wood Slabs

    I'm interested in petrified wood for the scientific value (wood where the cell structure is well preserved), for the aesthetic value (mineralized with vivid colors and crystal shapes), and for oddities (like fungus, insect borings etc.) contained in the wood. Below are three petrified wood slabs, from the United States, from my collection. The below individual slab pictures were taken with the slabs dry, indoors using my camera with flash. The close-up pictures were taken with my Dino-Lite digital microscope. Petrified Wood, conifer, fungus Polyporites wardii, early Permian late

    Dinosaur Bone from Madagascar

    This piece of fossil was said to be a dinosaur bone from Madagascar. Is it dinosaurian? A femur/tibia?

  7. I picked up the July-August issue (Volume 30, Number 7) of "Natural History" magazine last week. The cover article by Alison Richard is on Madagascar. It's a quick geologic history of the giant island and really an excerpt from the author's book, "The Sloth Lemur's Song: Madagascar from the Deep Past to the Uncertain Present" (University of Chicago Press/Harper Collins UK) which was published earlier this year. It mentions Carboniferous plants, Triassic proto-mammals, Cretaceous dinosaurs, and a giant frog. It sounds like an interesting read. In addition there's a report on Mio
  8. Below are some of the slabs/slices/limb casts of petrified wood from my collection. I'll post more pieces in latter replies. I especially like very colorful pieces and unusual pieces like Teredo bored pieces or pieces with fungus. I have hundreds of close-up pictures. If you would like to see close-up pictures of a particular piece, reply to this post with the number/numbers. 1 Petrified Wood botryoidal agate golden calcite insect borings ostracods Eocene 50 MYA Green River Fm Blue Forest along Lake Gosiute Sweetwater County Wyoming 1.2 lbs 8.25 x6x.38 inches
  9. First of all, the list of fish found in Madagascar - there are more than 30 species! So many that I can't treat all of them (and I've never seen some of them). There is relatively old, but good literature on it - Lehman has written one of the most comprehensive publications on this subject: J.-P.Lehman (1952) Etude Complementaire des Poisson de L'Eotrias de Madagascar. Kungl. Svenska Vetenskapsakademiens Handlingar. Fjärde Serien Bd 2 No 6 (in French, 244 pages, 340MB!) Australosomus merlei Piveteau, 1934 is easy to recognize: Small

  11. I have aquired a slab of rock that has a Barasaurus in it. Not sure if thats the correct name or not. Ive taken a close up of what is exposed, circled in white. Im afraid this is the head? Would so much have wanted the head end in the rock instead of the tail end. What do you guys think? Thanks

    Ammonite from Madirovalo, Madagascar

    Hello! I got this ammonite fossil from Madirovalo, Madagascar. Cretaceous. That's all the info I got. Does anyone know possibly what species it is or if it's Lower Cretaceous or Upper Cretaceous? Regards.
  16. Curious if this "elephant bird egg" is real. The length and width are realistic and it weights about 3 lbs. 14.5 oz. It is smoother than I expected and appears to have been polished in places, especially in spots where some of the sections meet. Surface covered in fine lines (often with branches) as well as small holes. A small flake was examined under a microscope, showing one of the fine lines to consist of a series of holes. Other holes were also visible. I dabbed the flake with vinegar and observed bubbling under the scope. Images show some close-ups of the textured

  21. Hello, Is this fish fossil real? Listed as Pteronisculus from Madagascar, length 12cm. Any apparent reconstruction or fabrication? And how complete is it? Looks like the tip of the head may be cut off. Thanks.
  22. I just acquired this fossil recently. Can anyone provide some thoughts on this fossil? ID also, please. Is this a Barasaurus? Thanks!

    Sauropod claw

    Hello all I was offered this beauty from Sakaraha formation, Mid Jurassic (Bathonian) of Madagascar. It is ID'd as sauropod because there aren't any ornithopods known from the formation. What do people here say? It's 8 cm long .
  24. Any idea which species this is? The ammonite is from Madagascar, but I don't have the exact location. Size 26 inches, weight 120 kgs
