    Metatarsal horse??

    Recently found in central IL. By pictures, local paleontologist claims metatarsal horse that had been butchered. Fossil? Bone? he also said “it’s been in the ground a long time “ what’s that mean.? as a horse it’s either less than 600 or more than 10000, right?

    Morrison Formation toe ID

    Got a bit of a potential challenge here today! I recently bought this little toe bone (phalanx or metatarsal I guess) online. It was cheap, I guess because it doesn't have anything in terms of location/age other than Morrison Formation. It is about 6 cm long, 6-ish on its widest point and about 5 high at the highest point. It is quite heavy and stubby. Slightly distorted at the front and the circular parts at the front are partially worn off. Has a piece knocked out of it. Which is kind of neat because you can see the internal bone structure in that part. But the main question of c

    Another Wyoming dig

    Last years dig season. Fossil was found lying on the ground, no digging. I was saying to myself is that what I think it is, not used to seeing or finding toe bones this large. Measures 17 inches in length. It was in three pieces which fit back together quite nicely. This was in the Lance formation and is complete.
  4. Hello fossil folks! I am going through my bone collection from last season and would like to identify the five bones pictured. The most interesting one to me is #5 as I believe it is too long to be a horse. Perhaps camel? All of these bones were collected from a river in central Iowa. So far, my wife and I have found prehistoric bison, horse, sloth, mastodon and mammoth bones from the pleistocene period. I am pretty sure these are either Metacarpal or Metatarsal bones. Sorry but I do not have a metric scale for the pictures. I have labeled the bones 1 thru 5 and noted each
  5. Hi I just bought these two dinosaur fossils from Alberta Canada. A Ceratopsian vert and a Hadrosaur metatarsal. The colouring and look/preservation of the Hadrosaur metatarsal makes me think they didn’t come from the Horseshoe canyon formation like it says but instead the Dinosaur Park formation. since it doesn’t give much information other then the Horseshoe canyon formation it’s possible, Thanks for future help. Ceratopsian vert
  6. Hello, I have a femur and metatarsal and thanks to this forum, I've been able to use plenty of reference to ID Bison as opposed to Bos with decent confidence. However, I'm wondering if there are any references or tips on identifying species. I hear B. antiquus is tricky to tell from B. bison, but are there consistent size differences? Both were found in Ames, IA in Squaw Creek in sandbars after spring flooding. This femur is 45 cm (~17.5 in) long and the distal is 11 cm (4.5 in) wide. The metatarsal is 20 cm (~8 in) long and 8 cm (3 in) wide.

    Quetzalcoatlus metatarsal?

    Possibly quetzalcoatlus metatarsal? The other one is supposed to be the part of the beak, close to the tip. Sadly these are the only pictures available. Any info or thoughts are greatly appreciated.
  9. Hello, I was browsing through our favorite auction site and stumbled on a psittacosaurus leg. The seller seems very reliable but I just wanted to make sure. Found in China Cretaceous Approx. 6 in.
  10. I found this bone 10 days ago , recognized a toe bone, eliminated tapir, but thought it might be Peccary because I had found a peccary molar previous time out. A bad assumption. I sent the 92.7 mm bone into University of Florida fossil Identification service, which usually means Richard Hulbert. He helps me a lot with fossil questions and identifications. I like to return the favor but in most cases, Richard has seen my fossil clones hundreds or thousands of times. YES !!!! YES !!! Found a bone that Richard needs. Time to make a donation... 4th Metatarsals of Castoroides

    Bouldnor Cliff Metatarsal

    Hi, I headed out yesterday morning to Bouldnor Cliff on the early morning low tide for what would be a rather "interesting" collecting trip (finger numbingly cold weather followed by getting badly bitten by a loose dog). I picked up some nice pieces including a Bothriodon jaw, and this very nice metatarsal bone. My initial ideas were that it was crocodilian however after doing research online I've seen quite a few similar looking metatarsals in variety of other animals, so I was wondering if anyone would be able to lend a hand in IDing it. It seems to be fairly intact apart from s

    Pinniped metatarsal?

    Hey Y'all, I was cleaning some matrix pieces and this was exposed. I think it is an Allodesmus metatarsal but would like other (more informed) opinions on it. Thanks Everyone. Ynot

    Struthiomimus or Nano?

    Hi everyone! I have another puzzle for you all! I REALLY appreciate your help identifying these bones, and even though I may never know what they really came from it is so interesting to propose and discuss possibilities. The majority of the bones I found this summer (in Montana) were really odd and hard to identify... They all came from roughly the same 5'x5' spot in the same formation. Anyways, this one is no doubt theropod. It's beautiful with awesome preservation aside from the whole 'missing an entire side' thing. Hopefully you can help me out!

    Dromaeosaur Metatarsal

    Partial metatarsal of a Theropod dinosaur. Probably from a Dromaeosaurid. Very similar to metatarsal II and IV of Velociraptor.
  16. Just curious what the general consensus is here for adding color back into specimens that have been faded out. Some of the most common ideas I have heard is furniture polish. I have a hard time believing that there is no company out there that has specific materials for this. I would think that a company like Paleo BOND would have some sort of color products fro people to use. Any help and suggestions would be much appreciated. Sincerely, J

    Metapod (?) ID

    Hello there! I need your help. I've collected this two in a late Pleistocene conglomerate. This "quarry" has yielded only rancholabrean fauna, horses, mammoth, bison, etc. But I cannot ID this two metacarpals/metatarsals (?)... Can you help me? *The scalebar is on cm.

    deer metapodials

    From the album: BONES

    These are white tail deer cannon bones, much favored by Native Americans for tool-making. (This image is best viewed by clicking on the "options" button on the upper right of this page => "view all sizes" => "large".)
