    Help with fossils.

    Hi I'm New here & New To Fossil hunting. I'm not sure if I have found any fossils yet but I have 2 piece I would like to get some opinions on if they are indeed fossils. FYI I live in Macon Georgia. Both of these to me look like part of a reptile of some sorts head. I would really appreciate it anything anyone could tell me even if it's that it's just a plain rock as my husband says. Thank you so much for your time.

    Tail of a Triassic Marine Reptile

    Here is a tail of a marine reptile from the Triassic period. It was found at Fuyuan, Yunnan Province of China, at the same strata with Keichosaurus. Does it look like the tail of Yungguisaurus liae or Placodus inexpectatus? It is 56cm in length.

    Bone found in Venice, Florida

    I don’t believe it’s a dugong fossil as IIRC they don’t have hollow marrow areas. It was found away from the beach but around shells, the peace river formation isn’t stratified either way. The last picture may be a separate all together but was found in this cluster of bone, it looks like turtle shell I have seen. It’s on a napkin for scale but the large portion is about the length of my pinky. The shell object is about the size of a nickel. Because of the shell piece found within the bone cluster I’m imagining it could be a turtle humorous
  4. Things are getting pretty serious over in The Fossil Zone, so I cleared off a few books and replaced them with fossils. Who needs to read, anyway? Feel free to ask questions about particular pieces. Whole collection: The turtle skull is real, but the surrounding matrix has been stained by the preparator for better visibility. Some here might recognize the new claw that arrived broken in the mail There is a Vinctifer comptoni fish on the back right, along with a negative Grallator footprint, which I can't seem to find a good way to display.

    Pterosaur tooth?

    Hey all, Just got these teeth and was wondering if you guys can ID a species to them? Here are the deets… Age: Late Cretaceous. Locality:- Fluvial sandstone deposits, Kem Kem Formation. West of Hamada du Guir. Errachidia Province. MOROCCO. They were labelled as coloborhynchus moroccensis but I thought the coloborhynchus was only found in UK.I’m not really familiar with Moroccan locality to this detail other than the “Kem Kem beds” so maybe my locality provided narrows the ID possibilities? they sort of look like sirrocopteryx/ coloborhynchus tee

    Fossil shop mystery

    Hey all. So I stopped in a shop selling fossils yesterday and they had some things I didn’t recognize. Some bits look like vertebrae, others like the jaw bone of a salmon, others possible teeth. The shop owner had no idea what they were and I didn’t feel confident enough to hazard a guess. Also, they have no clue where it came from but I wouldn’t be surprised if it was from Morocco as many of their fossils are. Because of the file size I’ll have to post the pics in a few replies below...
  8. Hello, I am going to purchase this lot that is from Richard's Spur Quarry and I was wondering if anyone on here knows how to ID fossils better than me. I've been looking at pictures all day but can't seem to confidently ID anything. I know most of these are probably Captorhinus, but are there any in this lot that look like a different species or a synapsid such as Varanops? Been searching for synapsid fossils forever and I really hope one of these is from a synapsid. There's 3 claws, 3 vertebrate, and 4 jaw sections. Don't be afraid to hurt my feelings if they all are Captorhinus, I think they
  9. Reptile tracks dating from 251 MYA from the early Triassic were stolen around 2017/2018 from Capitol Reef National Park, but only recently noticed. Hopefully the perpetrators will be found and the fossils recovered. https://www.nps.gov/orgs/1563/care-rfi-05102022.htm

    Pebble Evolving.

    Hi, after a work related break in Wexford recently I found this item washed up on the beach. After lightly cleaning it and viewing it under a jewellers loupe, I realised that it appeared to have inscriptions on it. I thought I may be just willing oil t to be the case, but upon further investigation they are definitely man made carvings. It seems to be a fish/catfish possibly to the front, and inscriptions of what I can make out to be, a person, stick like figure, fish, a PI symbol as well as others. It is very intriguing and though I'd share in the hope other do too. Thanks.

    Pebble Evolving.

    Hi all my name is Richard, A.K.A "the fella with the pebble"! Not sure if I posted on this or another forum, but wherever it was I received some replies and then the thread got closed because to whomever that decided, decided I had, had my answer..... Sound! I found a pebble over a year ago on a beach in Wexford. I just saw all the variations of pebbles on the beach and thought... I'm gonna have a look at them there pebbles. Sorted. I collected a load, and one stood out when I got back and cleaned them. So a year on I have had giggles, looks and ridicule fo

    pterosaur bones (perhaps Dorygnathus)

    From the album: Holzmaden

    This is probably one of my best find so far from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden. Its a plate with some pterosaur bones, which is very rare in Holzmaden as these are marine desposits. The bigger bone might be a Humerus. Before I was able to find this piece I only found a few isolated pterosaur bones. Hopefully I can find a complete one one day The prep of this specimen took about 5 hours. Before the prep it was visible that these are pterosaur bones so I was very surprised ... Some more pictures:

    What is this?

    Hi - we have another curious find, hoping someone here can give us some insight on what this is. We initially picked it up thinking it was a small piece of petrified wood. But upon closer inspection it looks to maybe be bone or septarian or ? The dark outer layer has a reptile-like pattern on the top side, and a smoother (more weathered?) appearance on the underside. I’ve attached a bunch of photos hoping they will help. This was found on a beach in southern Oregon. It’s about 3cm x 5 cm. Thanks…

    Texas Permian Skull

    All that was on the label for this item was that it’s from the Permian age and from Texas. I don’t have any further info on it. Does anybody know what this is?
  15. Dear fellow fossil huntersand fossil enthusiasts hello there. It has been a very long time since my last postI really had not much time to focus on this hobby of ours sincemy son was born. So he's now 3 years old and things are getting better, hahaha. So after this short personal note her is what I have to ask. I found this fossil pieceof bone. It is clearly a fragmet of something else, I guess from some kind of vertebra but I am not sure if it could be from some skull, maybe fish, maybe something else, I really don't know. I found this in a Pliocene marine deposit, I have found

    Partial Lizard Inclusion.

    From the album: Burmese Amber

    Parts of a small lizard tail and leg. Mostly hollow, but the distal ends of the tail and foot are preserved. My hypothesis is that the lizard body was partly captured in a resin flow. The majority of the body was then picked out by scavengers, leaving behind a resin cast of the body that was filled in by another resin flow. Scavengers were unable to extract the distal elements.
