    Please ID these!

    I am pretty sure these are claws, but I am not at all sure. The first one had a tip ,like the drawn lines indicate, but some jerk broke it off. Doesn’t down the shaft on the last one look like Fluking?

    Pterosaur Wyoming

    Hello, Found on internet an Pterosaur tooth from Albany County, Wyoming - USA, Morrison Formation. What do you other people tink about it. Is it Pterosaur? And what about the species? It is named Pteranodon, but that cant be right.
  3. Hi Community, I am not quite sure what my latest addition to my fossil collection really is. Kryptodrakon? Kunpengopterus antipollicatus? Confuciusornis? (But there is no tail and no indication of feathers) Monkeydactyl”? Please help me in identifying what it really is. Size: 12" by 10" Many thanks, Peter

    My pterosaur collection

    Figured I'd start a thread to post my pterosaur collection in, since they are my favorites. This first lot are all from China, Yixian Formation.
  7. Hi! I was wondering if this fossil Pterosaur is real. This is a Pterosaur bone from Khouribga, Morocco, species name is Alcione elainus and is from the upper Cretaceous (Maastrichtian) Anyone that can tell me if this is faked or restored in any way?

    Pterosaur bone id [Alcione sp.?]

    Hi there, I'm looking to add a pterosaur bone to my collection and I think I've found one, but would like confirmation from some of the more knowledgeable people on here, if possible . I'm told it is an Alcione sp. limb bone (nyctosaurid). 9.4 inches long. Bone looks hollow on the inside. Location is Oued Zem, Morocco - Ouled Abdoun Basin (Maastrichtian - Phosphate beds). Have you seen something similar? Is this a pterosaur ulna? Thanks!

    Pterosaur Claw from Kem Kem

    This has been identified as a Pterosaur Claw from Kem Kem... Thoughts? Rare 1.57 Inch Upper Cretaceous Pterosaur Claw KemKem Beds Ifezouane Fm Scientific name: Unidentified pterosaur species Location: Taouz, South Morocco Geological Formation: Ifezouane Fm Age: Upper Cretaceous, Cenomanian stage (96 Million Years) Size: 4cm = 1.57 Inch
  10. This paper by Roy Smith et al. looks at small and immature pterosaurs finds in the Kem Kem Group and their implications. The abstract states the a sampling bias exists and makes the following comment: "Histological analysis suggests that very small/small morphs are immature individuals rather than species in which adults were small-bodied." Unfortunately the paper is paywalled but this must raise to question how many of the smaller pterosaurs species that are named in the KK were early ontogenetic stages of larger pterosaurs. Not surprised considering that there are 10 named an

    Pterosaur limb bexhill uk

    Hi tff I can’t see this can be anything other than a pterosaur limb bone? when I first saw it I thought it may be a burrow, and checked in case there was a crustacean sat inside. early Cretaceous, bexhill uk, floodplain. About 20cm apologies photos aren’t great

    hollow ribs? pterosaur?

    Hi there, I’d like to get the expert opinion of you all. Could these be pterosaur ribs? i just know they’re from Whitney, Yorkshire. As you can see, they’re hollow, and all I know of, that would have little hollow ribs like that are pterosaurs, and avian dinosaurs, but I'd imagine it was very uncommon for articulated ribs from a raptor to make it to, and “survive” an aquatic deposit, intact and untouched, although I know pterosaur bones are sometimes found in aquatic fossil deposits, at least from coastal areas. I'm not sure what else would be found there with hollow ribs, and these also seem

    Pterosaur beak and bone

    Hello fossil lovers, I buy recently this partial (?upper) beak and this bone of a pterosaur (maybe a ?humerus). I need a confirmation of my identification and a help for a more precise id, to maybe determine the family or even better the specie.
  14. I found this small bone (about 5cm) in marine cretaceous material from NW Queensland, it is very thin and fragile. It looks very different from the common turtle bones i usually find in this location .Anyone else have thoughts?I have added some close up photos of the structure the total bone thickness is only about 1mm in the middle. Is this possibly pterosaur?
  15. How does one reliably differentiate Moroccan Pterosaur teeth from similarly elongated fish teeth? Are there any grooves, striations etc I should be looking out for under a loupe? (Image credit: AJ Plai, http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php...)

    Yixian Chinese Pterosaur

    Hello, I have been offered a Chinese pterosaur tooth--from Yixian Formation, Liaoning, China. There are a lot of toothed pterosaurs from there, so I guess narrowing down an actual species will be difficult. But I wish to make sure that it looks pterosaur rather than being something else. Unfortunately the matrix was split and reglued, so it has a repair down the middle. It is 2cm long. Seller is in Taiwan, so export of the fossil is ok.
  17. Hello, any thoughts on this? It is sold as pterosaur remains--jaw pieces and a vertebra, from Ouled Abdoun Basin, Morocco. From the Cretaceous--unfortunately from an old German collection, so the information is limited. 240mm x 105mm Now, I think it is misidentified and is actually a bird--possibly Dasornis because on the first pic, the jaw has a long tooth and then a few of the smaller mini "teeth" which matches a drawing I found in a paper of similar birds, which I've also attached. If it's Dasornis or a bird, then that would mean it isn't Cretaceous in ag
  18. Howdy folks, me again with more silly beginner questions... I saw this video of a vampire bat running and wondered if pterosaurs - with their crutch-like folded wings - might have moved in a similar manner? Youtube: Vampire Bat on Treadmill I also saw this video of a Panda cub running. Might synapsids like Dinocephalians or Gorgonopsids - with those weird, “inturned” arms - have moved in a similar fashion? Youtube: Panda Bear Cub Running I’m guessing the answers to both of these questions is probably “no” - I would think that even a slight differ

    pterosaur tooth ?

    Yesterday i had time to hunt in Holzmaden. Some may realize that i posted this: http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/69842-last-hunt-in-holzmaden-for-this-year/#comment-732544 Now this is my real last hunt in the quarry Kromer in Holzmaden (Lower Jurassic) ... I worked hard about 3 hours, but i cant find much and the material there doesnt look good. So i only find this item: This tooth looks very special ... Its 0.7 cm long (after prep 1 cm long), so it was difficult to photograph the tooth. It looks very similar
  20. Good evening everyone, Does anyone have an explanation why there are so many theropod teeth from Kem Kem available (Carcharodontosaur, Spinosaur) while there aren't way as many herbivore teeth being offered from that area? Shouldn't herbivores have outnumbered the theropods by a lot?

    Kem kem tooth, help!

    Hello, many years ago a bought this small tooth in a shop, at the time they told me it was a dino tooth, that it came from kem kem, and the child me was happy. Now after all these years I clearly know that this isn't a dino tooth, but anyone can help me identifying it? Maybe it's croc or pterosaur
  22. I’m currently in search of a fossil preparator who can repair/restore a broken pterosaur tooth. The other day I accidentally knocked a box of small fossils off of a shelf and several items broke. I’ve been able to glue most of the stuff back together with PaleoBond, with the exception of a ~2.5 cm pterosaur tooth (Kem Kem Beds, Morocco) that broke into two pieces, and the two piece don’t fit back together perfectly, Repair of the tooth would require filling relatively substantial cracks as well as painting. This is beyond my skill level, especially with such a small fossil, so I’m willing to p
  23. 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

    Pterosaur tooth with root

    Hello all, Here is a rooted pterosaur tooth from the kemkem. It's 6.5 cm long and is from the Kemkem. Does anyone know if an exact species can be determined for this tooth?

    Pterosaur tooth or fish?

    Any idea on this tooth, labelled as pterosaur? No bigger pics available because of its small size. It is sold as a pterosaur tooth from the Solnhofen formation. It is only 3mm in length---much smaller than other teeth I see there and smaller than the tooth I have from there. Most pterosaur from there seem to be curved, whereas this is quite straight, which makes me think it's probably not a pterosaur. It's a really tiny tooth---3mm. Even smaller than the Bull Canyon pterosaur teeth, could be from a rarer type of pterosaur there? Most are sold as Rhmphorhynchus, but I see there are
