Mystery Madagascar teeth ID help Croc? Pterosaur? Yes I have good proximity
jikohr posted a topic in Fossil IDHi everyone! I just got in some interesting teeth from the Jurassic of Madagascar Isalo lll Formation (yes I have good proximity. The were found on the outskirts of Boriziny by surface collecting, I included a map) and some of the teeth I'm not sure what they are. My best guess is either Croc or Pterosaur, leaning (hoping) Pterosaur since there is no carina and most have a flattened oval base like the Pterosaur teeth I usually see out of Morocco but then there's one with a circular base that I'm not entirely sure. I saw somewhere that Rhamphorhynchidae can be found within the Isalo
Possible pterosaur/bird bone?
Krebalt posted a topic in Fossil IDHi! I'm a new user who's really into marine reptile bones, by which I mean mosasaurs and plesiosaurs from the Late Cretaceous strata found where I live. I've recently found a small yet satisfying piece that seems to be a hollow bone of a pterosaur/bird. The age of the strata is Late Campanian/Early Mastrichtian and the rock itself is an erratic piece of an "opoka" - a siliceous limestone typically found in Poland and Germany. The bedrock from which it originates lies very likely underneath the Quarternary cover in what is now the Gdańsk Bay (SE Baltic Sea region). It's hollow inside and when v
Fullux posted a topic in Fossil IDHi, just making sure this is what it is described as. The seller says it's a pterosaur (specifically Siroccopteryx) from the dinosaur age Kem-Kem beds of Morocco. And is 1.46" in length.
Kem Kem mystery tooth
BirdsAreDinosaurs posted a topic in Fossil IDHi all. I recently bought this interesting little tooth from @pachy-pleuro-whatnot-odon. When he first bought it, it was labeled as a Deltadromeus agilis premax tooth. What Deltadromeus' teeth look like, no one knows, but I see why someone would ID this as a premax theropod tooth because of its triangular base and the mesial carina that looks quite theropodian. But to my knowledge, theropod premax teeth have their two carinae located on/towards the distal side, and there is no carina on the midline of the mesial side. What do you think? Is this a premax theropod tooth? Is it even d
Not a belemnite?
Fay posted a topic in Fossil IDNew to this group so I hope I'm posting within guidelines. Apologies if not. My son found this at Charmouth last winter and it's been stashed in his jar of belemnites. But last night he noticed this one is different, it has ridges on both sides and isn't cone shaped like the others. He's hoping its pterosaur! Can anyone help with ID? Thanks.
Bones from moroccan phosphate
Le Ouistiti posted a topic in Fossil IDHello everyone, i saw these two fossils from the phosphate and i am not sure about the type of animal. the first one look like a limb bone (but no idea of the animal) and the secound one like a wing part (maybe from a pterosaur ?). I need confirmation and precision on the identification if someone have an idea.
Kem Kem bone id help Coracoid? Crocodile? Something else?
jikohr posted a topic in Fossil IDHi everyone! Got a nice little mystery bone from the Kem Kem here. I think it's a Coracoid bone but I'm not sure from what. I'm leaning Crocodyliform only because that seems to be the most common thing for these random mystery bones but I don't know for sure so I figured I'd seek a second opinion in case it might be something else like a fish bone. It measures 7 cm (2.76 inches). Any feedback is appreciated as always!
How do I tell pterosaur hollow bones from dinosaur hollow bones?
jikohr posted a topic in Fossil IDHi everyone! How do I differentiate cretaceous hollow bones from Morocco from being Pterosaur or something else like raptor or theropod? Here's a few hollow bones I'm working with right now, if e could provide some insight on differentiating them I'd really appreciate it. I think all but the one in the lower middle is Pterosaur since it has really thick bone walls.
Pterosaur claws or fish teeth?
jikohr posted a topic in Fossil IDHi everyone, Just got these, I think I see blood groves but you never know. So I'm here for a second opinion. Morocco, Cretaceous, Kem Kem beds Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
