  1. Here is a thread to share some of your rarest partials that if whole would've been incredible specimens, but you know how it is sometimes... Yet they still amazing to own a piece of. I will start off by sharing a piece of the tail of a Probolichas Kristiae, an incredibly unique looking rare lichid trilobite from Oklahoma that would've of been incredible if whole of course yet this piece still has amazing detail and I am more that happy to own
  2. Hi everyone, I am trying to find the following stuff someone is willing to trade. - Mosasaurus partial jaws or matrix pieces, not repaired or restored. From Morocco. - Belgian Megalodon teeth - Mastodon tooth - Quality Spinosaurus teeth, larger ones. I got a lot to offer, mostly teeth and jaws from dinosaurs and ice age relater animals.
  3. Hello, today I am offering a one of a kind 2.54 inch Tarbosaurus bataar tooth from the Nemegt formation in Mongolia. This tooth currently resides in Europe. The tooth has no restoration and only has the tip reattached, aside from that the tooth is completely natural. I am mainly after exceptional theropod teeth but am open to any interesting offers. You really don’t see Tarbosaurus teeth that often anymore so this tooth would make a splendid addition to any collection.
  4. Here I have a prett rare a nicely preserved Deinosuchus Riograndensis tooth from the Bufftown Formation, Alabama. Looking for great quality theropod teeth from the KemKem region, preferably Carcharodontosaurus. Open for other dinosaur teeth as well. Just hit me up!
  5. Hi guys, we’ve seen people’s 6 gill and 7 gill teeth, we’ve seen peoples extraordinary common teeth and I thought why not post your single rarest sharks tooth this is mine, incredibly rare from a very small site that has been closed for decades, I haven’t seen another, if you have please tell me
  6. I found this Upper Devonian nodule containing bones years ago. Of course I don't find too many Devonian vertebrate fossils here in NY so I squirreled it away to get it properly prepared and IDed someday. After doing some recent rearranging of my collection, I decided to bring this fossil out into the light. What I know - #1. Its a vertebrate fossil for sure and it looks to me to be cranium elements. #2. The size is 5.5" x 5.5". #3. It was found in the Cashaqua shale nodule layer. I also find straight and coiled shelled cephalopods, wood, and tiny bivalves in this unit.
  7. Hello everyone! Today I acquired a specimen that is of a rarity that's nearly unparalleled. The specimen in question is the cuticle of a Eurypterid from the famous, classic, and closed Ordovician locality at Swatara Gap. I believe it is undescribed and I can tell its a eurypterid for sure by the scaling pattern on the cuticle. Eurypterids aren't unheard of at Swatara Gap but I have never seen a specimen or even known about a specimen other then the one I have. They are extremely rare and were probably over looked by collectors due to not knowing what they were. I acquired the eury
  8. Dinosaur bones and teeth, shark teeth, and green river formation sedimentary fossils get most of the glory. What are some of the other fossils that deserve more attention?
  9. Skeetersaurus

    Motivation at its best

    Absolutely love that feeling of never knowing what you are about to uncover. No words can explain that moment when you catch that first glimpse at a present that's been waiting for you for millions of years!! I'm 5 years old all over again, lol. The icing on the cake is when your kids catch the same feeling and you see the excitement in their eyes when they see that. Ever elusive gem (fossil) lying before them!! Got to love it! < ; ^ ><
  10. 3 Sarcosuchus teeth with a Certificate. Formation: Erlhaz Fm. Location: Tenere-Woestijn, Niger. Biggest is 3,2 cm Looking for a Megalodon or Mastodon tooth.

    Epic Unusual Find in Andalusia

    Hello All! I’m Christopher and I’m new to the gang! I want to thank anyone and everyone in advance for the help and learning that will come from this site! I want to share a recent epic find as a first hello! I couldn’t believe that 90* bend!! IMG_3810.MOV
  12. What is the most rare fossil on your collection? I think the most rare fossil on my collection is a Huntoniantonia huntonensis (my profile photo). You?

    Help with rare ammonite.

    Yesterday I was taking a walk in my area of Cretaceous, and I found these two pieces. At first I thought of misshapen fragments, of some kind of ammonite. But at home looking at them in more detail, I realized that the ammonite is complete, (it hurts that they are not in better condition). As I observe it seems that they are elongated, and crushed, and in a state of death, they folded. The most deteriorated one has a hole in the shell, in which the septa can be seen, and the other the sutures can be seen well. The largest measures 2.3 ctms in its current state, (folded). What kind of

    any info would be wonderful!

    This was recovered near a gold mine in western Montana. I have absolutely no idea what it is. any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Raptor claw

    Not mine, i found it at an auction. Can you tell what it is? Raptor foot (toe) claw is believed to be from Utah. Measurements: 3.6 x 1.4 x 0.9 inches
  16. Dinosaur teeth from North Carolina are very rare to come by. There are only a small handful of sites where they have come from. One of the sites is well known, but the others are a closely guarded secret. Those of you who have been lucky to find such things, let's see your pictures. Not mosasaurs, not plesiosaurs but land dwelling dinosaurs. Here are mine. First a Tyrannosauroidea indet. There are two known Tyrannosaurids from N.C. Dryptosaurus and Appalachasaurus.The small size of this tooth will most likely keep it from being able to be ID'd
  17. One of my rarest fossil finds! This is a Pseudocorax affinis that I found while hunting in New Jersey's Cretaceous age streams. This is a very rare find for the area. It's in really nice shape too. One of my favorite teeth.
  18. Hi everyone, I was recently offered this Giganotosaurus tooth. I was wondering if there was a way to distinguish it from carcharodontosaurus teeth from the kem kem beds? Or if anyone can share there opinion on this one, thank you.

    Trilobite Rarity

    Elrathia trilobites are very common, they're small, have no spines, and have a lot of preserved molts. On the other hand you have rare trilobites with spines covering its whole body or trilobites that exceed half a meter. These are not as common, but spines and size seem to be an evolutionary advantage. Why are the trilobites that seem to have the best chance of survival the rarest ones? Or is it just a marketing play?
  20. It has 10 percent restoration. It's 13.5 inches long. It was found in Baker Montana region.
  21. I just made a video which includes a video at the end of my Rarest Fossil find! It's a beautiful fish which are super rare here. Hopefully you enjoy the video if you choose to watch it
  22. Hello everyone, I'd like to share my extreme budget collection of exotic megs/shark teeth so far, I've have been collecting shark teeth and other for a little over a year and a half now on an extremely tight budget and have been surprised by what I was able to get a hold of so far. Condition doesn't bother me hence the budget but I have been able to find some megs from from interesting locations over the short period of time I've been collecting with a little bit of luck. Locations include Puerto Rico, Cuba, Japan, Hawaii, Morocco, Mexico, Peru, and The Phillipines. Anyone else out

    Fish Aspirations!

    One of the rarest and most unique fossils are aspiration pieces! I have been very lucky in acquiring 2 over the course of collecting, neither are incredibly good, but their rarity alone makes them that much more desirable! I would love to see anyone else's fish with eyes bigger than their stomachs!
  24. Dear Friends, I decided to share more from my passion, good finds or interesting things if we talk about Baltic Amber with inclusions. This is still fascinating for me and there is always chance for something extra or new for science. This time it is something that i found first time ever and i don't have it in any book about amber inclusions. Its a Extremely Rare, Aquatic Nymph Of Veliidae - SMALLER WATER STRIDER. Why so rare ? Well in general aquatic organism's are always very rare becouse they was in water or near water so its very simple. Its easy to imagine t
