    Some bones from Mistelgau

    Recently I visited a clay pit near Mistelgau in Bavaria. It's a kinda famous quarry because of the "belemnite battle field". Huge plates with hundreds/thousands belemnites come from there. But you can also findother fossils like ammonites and also bones. I already was there a few times and I mainly found ammonites and of course belemnites. But this time I also found some bones in the area of the Belemnite battle field. They were just laying therebut it was kinda difficult to find them because they are round, Belemnites are round etc. so I more or less crawled through the quarry

    Steneosaurus tooth

    A 1.2 cm long Steneosaurus tooth (crocodile) from the lower Jurassic from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden (Germany). That black fossil around the tooth is petrified wood. Some more pictures:

    Biritish Kimmeridgian plesiosaur tooth

    Hi all, I bought this Kimmeridgian plesiosaur tooth from the Faringdon sponge gravels a while back. It came identified as Colymbosaurus sp.. At that point, I simply accepted this identification, seeing as the teeth of Colymbosaurus (or, at least, what's suspected of being Colymbosaurus) were already known from the Etches Collection and I didn't really have the means to verify the ascription from online sources. Today, however, The Etches Collection posted a video on Kimmeridgian plesiosaurs on their YouTube-channel, which make it abundantly clear that my sp
  4. G'day everyone, maybe someone can help me with the identification of a fossil. Recently I was on vacation in France and had the opportunity to visit the famous Falaises des Vaches Noires at Villers-sur-Mer (Calvados, Normandy). While searching the beach at low tide I found many fossils of invertebrates, but at the end of it a loose bone, too, on the foreshore. So it is most likely from the Marnes de Dives formation (Callovian), but I cannot say for sure, of course (the Marnes de Villers is overlying). As far as I know vertebrate fossils from there are represented by marine rept

    The great (crocodile) tooth identification game

    Some time ago I came across this seller selling a lot of pliosaur teeth without provenance, most of which can be attributed to misidentified teeth of Zarafasaura oceanis, the elasmosaurid of the Moroccan phosphates. However, amongst these same teeth, I also came across the below few of teeth that I'm having difficulty identifying. Tooth 5 is obviously a mosasaurid tooth from the Ouled Abdoun basin and probably belongs to Eremiasaurus heterodontus; tooth 1 seems to originate in the Kem Kem; and I suspect there are at least a few crocodile teeth amongst the rest (at least tooth 4). But I've grow

    Rib of a Triassic Marine Reptile?

    This fossil is from Guanling, Guizhou of China, of Triassic Formation. Many marine reptile fossils were found there. This one looks like a rib bone of a marine reptile?

    North Sulphur tooth ID

    Hi all! I picked up this little beauty (14mm at its longest) last week at the North Sulphur River. Unfortunately, it’s not complete, but I like it anyway. I immediately assumed it was Mosasaur (I have been a regular hunter at that location for a few years), but now I am second guessing myself. Can someone confirm or refute? Apologies in advance if there are any issues with the photos; I am posting directly from my phone, so hopefully they are not too large, but good enough quality.

    Unidentified Jurassic marine reptile bone

    Hi all, I've had the below piece in my collection for a number of years now, having acquired it thinking it was a juvenile plesiosaur propodial. It comes from the Oxford Clay of Peterborough and is of Callovian Jurassic age. However, when recently doing some research towards answering another question on TFF, I realised that - even though there's some plastic deformation going on - it doesn't quite look like the juvenile plesiosaur propodial I have from the rhaetic at Aust, nor does it look like a plesiosaur propodial

    Marine reptile tooth ID Lyme Regis

    Hi all, Bought this tooth online a while back. It was sold to me as "Ichthyosaurus platyodon" (which I understand to mean Temnodontosaurus platyodon) from Lyme Regis. Likely found by the seller themselves, as I know they occasionally collect fossils there. However, for the following reasons, I'm not sure about this attribution: Overall, the tooth doesn't look like your typical ichthyosaur tooth to me: It has more of an oval rather than round cross-section It's labolingually flattened Messial and distal carinae run the full length of the cr
  10. Hi everyone, found this in a new jersey cretaceous creek. Looks like a partial enamel something but I'm not exactly sure what it can possibly be from, it interestingly has some very defined ridges on the least worn side. Very hard to catch the clearest pics to show the sharpest definition but I tried to get the best I could. Maybe this can be a clue to a potential id. Pictures of it with whiteish background are upside down.

    Oxford Clay Plesiosaur Tooth

    Hey everyone! I recently got a few marine reptile teeth from various formations in the UK, including this partial plesiosaur tooth from the Oxford Clay. The enamel is only partially preserved, but appears unworn and allows for a good look at the enamel ridges of this section. The curved, rather robust shape of the tooth and the irregular distribution of the pretty prominent enamel ridges made me move away from ichthyosaur or machimosaurid as an ID, and seemed more in line with the many plesiosaurs from this formation. But that's where it got more tricky.

    UK Marine Reptile Teeth

    Hello all, I've had two teeth in my collection for many years now. I've recently moved and lost the supplied ID labels that came with them. I've taken this as a nice opportunity to see what others may think they are. I believe if memory serves me right the large tooth (Tooth A in photos) was labeled as a Simolestes. Then the smaller tooth tip (Tooth B in photos) labeled as Liopleurodon. I know both were found in the Wicklesham pit in Faringdon, Oxfordshire, UK. Upon some research, I found an article from 2014 with a Dakosaurus tooth discovered to be the largest in the UK at the ti

    Unidentified Triassic reptile bone

    Hi everyone, I recently acquired the below fossil, taking a chance as to what it might be. It came labelled as Mixosaurus sp. from the Keuper (Upper Triassic) of Kirchberg an der Jagst, but I can't place the bone... Initially, I thought it could be a broken mixosaur coracoid, though the shape doesn't match at all. In the below image the break is circled in blue, with the red circle marking a projection from the bone that I would not expect to be present if the bone were indeed a (mixosaur) coracoid, as shown in the drawing next to it (from Jiang, Schmitz, Hao and
  15. Hey everyone, I recently acquired this ichthyosaur vertebra that was originally collected in Penarth, south Wales, UK. What initially struck me was the vertebra's size, since it's by far the biggest one I have of any ichthyosaur: Now, other large ichthyosaur remains have been described from the very same location. The paper is freely available here: https://bioone.org/journals/acta-palaeontologica-polonica/volume-60/issue-4/app.00062.2014/A-Mysterious-Giant-Ichthyosaur-from-the-Lowermost-Jurassic-of-Wales/10.4202/app.00062.2014.full The cliffs at Penarth apparently conta

    Large NJ Cretaceous Bone

    Found this thick bone piece in a new jersey cretaceous creek and wonder if its possible to maybe id since one side has a distinct rough texture while the other is flatter and striated, I would guess either large turtle, mosasaur, or dinosaur. My friend joked its a theropod maxilary skull fragment, but we all know around here that material seems close to impossible to come across haha. Interested to hear any other thoughts.

    Utah septarian surprise

    In May of 2020, my boyfriend David and I drove up to Utah to go look for septarian nodules. I should preface this by saying that David has the most amazing "beginner's luck" of anyone I have ever known. Not only did we find a beautiful "normal" septarian nodule, David found a spot where apparently a large marine reptile of some sort died, and was later encased in septarian. We have since learned that this is basically the find of a lifetime! The beauty of these specimens never fails to amaze me. The large free form was cut and polished for us by Joe's Rock Shop. The matched pair was cut at Joe

    Ichthyosaur paddle digit (Wimereux): hit or miss

    Hi all, Found this stone at Pointe aux Oies in Wimereux two days ago, amongst the pebbles collected next to a shelve down towards sea from the spot where I had found an ichthyosaur vertebra (on matrix) two days before this find. I picked it up because 1) the stone is unusually flat; 2) has exactly the right shape and thickness to it for an ophthalmosaurid ichthyosaur paddle bone (see picture below); 3) has certain ornamentation top and bottom; 4) seems to be of a different type of stone than I've generally come across in the area; and 5) has some weight to it. It vaguely reminds me

    First egg from Antarctica

    https://phys.org/news/2020-06-egg-antarctica-big-extinct-sea.html I thought this was pretty cool (no pun intended).
  21. Hello again everyone! This is a specimen that was advertised as a Hydrosaurus Lingyuanensis. The specimen appears to have had some serious restorative attempts done at from the centre to the lower body. I wanted to ask if you could please let me know what you think regarding the authenticity of the specimen - particularly the areas that haven't been modified. The first image acts as a refernece, showing the approximate area where the photos have been taken. Thank you in advance. Frontal image + reference Back of specimen
