    Plesiosaur spine?

    This piece of spine with 4 verts was found in the fosfat beds of Morocco. It is supposed to be Plesiosaur, but the form is different I think. Might be Mosasaur, although I have never seen these trianglar shaped studs on the sides of the vertebrae. Does anyone recognize the shape? The whole piece is appx 40cm long and a good 20 cm wide.
  2. Following with the recent recognition of Mary Anning the Royal Mint has announced a commemorative coin collection in her name. https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-dorset-56182579 As part of the Royal Mint's "Tales of the Earth" series this follows dinosaur coins they minted last year. https://www.royalmint.com/our-coins/events/the-dinosauria-collection/ I find it really interesting how they're also tying in education on British paleontology and paleontologists. The new coins will also feature AR to discuss more about the specific fossils. A little fancy for me but
  3. Hello to all forum users! Glad to join you. I would like to share photos of some of my findings. Now there is an opportunity to post only a small part - the topic will be gradually supplemented. So, the finds of marine reptiles from the Cenomanian of the Cretaceous period of Ukraine. Several photos of the crown of the Ichthyosaurus tooth.
  4. Hello! I have collected a large amount of material on marine reptiles. Origin - Cenomanian of Ukraine (phosphorite layer). After sorting through the material, I can offer 4 lots for trading. The first three are approximately the similar lots (small bones in phosphorites). 4th lot - also the bones of the Cenomanian, but mostly bony fish. If you are interested in such material, please contact me in PM. Have a nice evening

    Plesiosaurus Vert...Maybe

    Hi All. I found this recently at NSR. I do believe it is a Plesiosaurus vertebrae. Looking around to make sure before I label and I have confused myself. Looked at too many websites. So, is it a Plesiosaurus Vert? Thanks in advance for your help?
  6. @doctor mud, Chris and I went off to a Cretaceous area on the South Island of New Zealand recently and found some amazing fossils. Between us we found paddle bones, shark teeth, petrified wood, a vertebrae and a few other bits. It was our first trip to this spot and had quite a bit of stuff to carry back, I needed help with my backpack as my legs weren't handling it My favourite find was the section of paddle with some associated paddle bones in it. I just finished the video and uploaded it here:

    Appendate fossil?

    I’ve never even heard of an appendate bone/fossil, but I’ve definitely never seen on in marine reptile appendages(specifically plesiosaurs). I’ve seen plenty of full paddles, but never anything other than the finger bones/phalanges(?). Do they have any? What does? And is this one?
  8. The seller claims is a plesiosaurus vertebrae 20cm that has no extra pieces on or glues , i was wondering if somebody can say the opposite. thanks in advance

    Pliosaurus or Plesiosaurus

    Hello. My qestion - pliosaurus or plesiosaurus? Fossil from Russia Cretaceous (Cenomanian stage), Tambov and Ryazan region
  10. I was looking around on internet then i saw this Plesiosaurus tooth for sale and i wanted to get it but i wondered if it was a actual fossil or just a fake. It was said to be found in Khouribga Phosphate Mine, Morocco, is 100 million years old (Cretaceous) and is 45 by 15 mm

    Plesiosaur femur or humurus?

    Can anyone tell if this is a plesiosaur femur or humurus? Or if not, have any thoughts on what it could be? From what I can tell it seems to have a slightly shorter/heavier curved length, and a more symmetrical curve than most plesiosaur bones Ive seen. I think it looks VERY close, but the slight differences I'm seeing are consistent with almost every plesiosaur bone I'm seeing, which makes me think the slight difference is a tell that it's not. Also, I don't see the ridges on any plesiosaur bones, but I don't know if that's natural to the bone, or from damage from fossilization at some point,

    My Small fossil collection

    Hi Nicky here! This is my small fossil collection which I started since I was 10 and expanded it when I was 18 If you have questions or have any suggestions for me please feel free to ask/tell My collection This is a overview of what I have. This is one of my favourites, the Spinosaurus I loved the creature when I first saw him in Jurassic park 3 and ever since it is one of my favourite carnivores! Carcharodon, A pretty tooth in my opinion. One of my newer tooth that I got, It is not specified what Kind of raptor it
  13. My mother's best friend found this I believe somewhere around Fremont County in Wyoming and I've been trying to figure out exactly what it is. I have been told that it is either a Plesiosaurus, myosaurus, or possibly a Spinosaurus, tooth. if anybody has any info on this I appreciate it thank you. I've got more pics if needed
  14. Ok, so I know these are kinda small, but hopefully it's good enough to tell. The tyrannosaur fossil was originally compacted, so keep that in mind if there's anything that would be attributed to that. Pic 1:unidentified tyrannosaur 2:stegosaurus 3&4:allosaurus (I know the allo metacarpal may be hard to destinguish, so I'm not expecting anything concrete on that one)

    Is this a plesiosaurus vert?

    This was sold to me as a plesiosaurus vert. Is this from a plesiosaurus or is it from something else? If so from what? Thanks for any info.
  17. Hi, I found this amongst rocks near the water at Lyme Regis beach in 2004. I assumed icthyosaurus but the curvature seems extreme for one. So if anyone can shed light on what this is, would be most appreciated as it's my most precious and largest creature find. Thanks in advance.
  18. I used to be a member her many years ago when young Knackers McGee started the site showing off his wonderful finds, time marches on, now i have somethig to contribute of note. I aquired a collection of Gem grade Opalised Plesiosaur bones, mainly half verterbrae, whatsit called, split vertically. Included, was one unknown perfect split shown below. If anyone is interested in such things, I can post more pics and links to videos for your amusement. This image is of the best split, most likely broken in the field by the pick. The central inclusions
  19. Khouribgha, Morocco is a treasure trove of fossils, especially in reptilian teeth. Recently I came to acquire an Elasmosaurus tooth from Khouribgha, Morocco. However, I am not aware if that place actually yields Elasmosaurus fossils. is it more likely I have a mis-identified Plesiosaurus mauritanicus tooth?
