  1. Long time lurker but finally made an account here. Probably have talked to some of you on instagram though! This fossil was sold to me a while back when I first started collecting and I just wanted to make sure it is real. I was told by someone reliable that it's real, but was prepared using a cheap acid method. I would love to learn more about that too if that's the case. I attached pictures that I took with my iPhone and a moment macro 10x lens.
  2. I finally broke through today, and made some of my proudest finds ever... multiple times. I have some questions on a few ID's. When I compared these Ptychodus to the Ptychodus ID guide, they kind of reminded me of anonymus and mammilaris. I'm excited because everywhere else I've only ever found mortoni before. I did not find any mortoni here. In the same slab as a ptychodus, there's also a small tooth that's perhaps suggestive of Mosasaur - however, fish teeth from those like pachyrhizodus look deceptively mosasaurian to my inexperienced eye. Furthermore, it's small size could

    Is this turtle rib bone?

    Hi everyone! When I put some cave breccia into liquid of acid acetic and water and this one came out. It long and slim seems doesn’t fit to any mammals that I know. When I used hammer to break the cave sediment, it broken into 2 part. This cave contains a lot of fossil from Pleistocene but mostly found are tooth of mammals. This is the first time I tried acid to preparation if there bone or microfossils. so please tell me if you know something about this bone. Thank for reading!
  4. On a couple of recent trips to the Whitby coast my daughter and I collected quite a few chunks of a large septarian nodule (or perhaps more than one nodule, though everything was collected in a small area) containing bones. Most of the pieces we found just contain ribs, but one piece contains a couple of larger bones. I’ve had a go at prepping the two best bits, is anyone able to suggest what the bones might have belonged to? Thanks for looking FullSizeRender.mov
  5. found it at the Big Brook Preserve, NJ. Look like a piece of skin or shield from reptile?

    NJ Mosasaur?

    Hey all, Feeling a little like the boy who cried Mosasaur. I am fairly confident what I have here is a Mosasaur but wanted to get another opinion. The species I believe to be Proghathodon rapax (Hay).
  8. Hey all, Made two trips to Ramanessin Brook that I have yet to share. The first trip provided much of the same stuff I had already had but did yield me an amazing sawfish rostral tooth. The most recent trip (8/17/21) is where the majority of what I wanted to share was found. Sawfish rostral tooth Pycnodont Fish Angel Shark Hybodus Shark Bone Material Goblin Shark Mosasaur? Mosasaur
  9. I found these two in the creek in my backyard in central western New Jersey. They appear to have symmetry and share common features. Does anyone know what I might be looking at? I’ve also found what appear to be osteoderms in great abundance in the same area. Any help or guidance in the right direction would be appreciated. Thank you.

    Whitby Vertebrae

    Just opened this nodule on a beach in the Whitby area, I can’t help thinking that it looks like a couple of verts, can anyone confirm this and maybe suggest a species? I’ll put better pics up when I get home if needed. Thank you for looking
  11. I have been reading up on Moroccan mosasaurs and one point of confusion that I have run into is differentiating teeth from Prognathodon anceps and Prognathodon giganteus. There seems to be a great deal of overlap in their descriptions and occasional contradictions in the scientific literature. The first issue I’ve noticed is that there seems to be a great deal of confusion over what to even call the two species. Leiodon anceps (Owen, 1841-1845) was based on two tooth fragments and a section of jawbone. The genus was renamed Liodon by Agassiz (1846) because the

    Snake Vertebrae Column id

    Hello, I bought this snake vertebrae column from a conference building hosting a fossil and mineral show. This fossil didn't have a nametag telling the species and genus of the snake (most fossils at the show had a nametag). I forget where they said the snake verts were from (or if they said the location at all). I think they might have said Morocco. It's hard to scale because it's in a frame behind glass, but all the vertebrae are around 1 inch. I know it might be hard to identify without the head, so I may just be looking like an idiot expecting it's species to be identified. But if som

    Another NJ Tooth!

    Hello once again! Here’s a find I’m particularly excited about, a new tooth! I found it while perusing gravel banks at Ramenessin. It’s tiny! 1 cm at the most. It does have striations, though they were difficult to capture with my camera. It’s also split in half. One carinae as well. I’m hoping this is of the marine reptile variety, guessing croc due to the size. I dabbled with the idea of pachyrhizodus as well, although I think the striations rule that out? Any insight is much appreciated, eager to ID this one!
  14. Just found this earlier today. Thought it was an enchodus until I noticed the conic root. I assume it's some type of aquatic reptile given the location and the similarity to mosasaur teeth I've found, but much more narrow than any mosasaur teeth I've found.
  15. I found both of these a couple days ago on my last trip to Big Brook in the same pan, and both have a very similar texture and appearance that leads me to believe they could have belonged to the same animal. I shared both via PM with @Trevor, who suggested the vertebra was likely Mosasaur (but that it might have a diagnostic ID), and that the bone was some type of marine reptile. Just thought I'd re-post here in case others might have any thoughts to add to that. Also, if either is worth taking in for a more diagnostic identification, where/to whom should I take them? I have heard there is a m

    Is this a faecal fossil?

    Is this a faecal fossil? From Madagascar. It has a strange structure on it. Is that a bug mark?

    Are these tracks??

    My husband purchased this landscaping rock in a pallet from a Bath/Bethlehem, PA area supplier about 20 years ago. Most of the supplier’s stones are from Pennsylvania. I’m guessing this is sandstone??? I’ve been staring at this rock for sometime and before I place it back, I wanted to get some opinions if anyone sees any type of tracks on this rock? I feel like my fingers fit in the specimen very nicely. Can’t tell if I’m seeing 3, 4 or 5 “toes” ? Maybe I’m just an imaginative newbie. Thanking anyone in advance who looks at these photos.
  19. Found this today at calvert cliffs. The only things I could think of that it could be were a juvenile porpoise or crocodile tooth. Anyone have any thoughts?

    Fossils? Virginia. Help please

    I found this while digging in my garden. Could someone help me and let me know if they can identify it. It looks like a three toed something possibly. This was the only green colored “rock” around. What do you think??

    Reptile Skin Fossil?

    What is this fossil? It is a hard rock found in the bottom of a creek that happens to be very low around the Bismarck, North Dakota area. It looks like some sort of reptile skin. The size is about 1 1/2" x 3/4".

    Old collection fossil id

    I am unable to identify these pieces from my grandad's collection. He is now unable to clearly see and so sadly couldn't identify it. It must be something, he was a zoologist and the shale meant enough to have a crack repaired. Parts look like bones to me. I'd love to get these identified so I can prep them, making them clearer so he can see them clearer again.
  23. Hey all, Was looking through some older finds today (from Big Brook NJand was curious on if anyone could shed some light on these. The one tooth I originally thought to be of enchodus, but upon looking closer I am not 100% sold. I could see it being an enchodus worn down or something new entirely. In regards to the second, my thoughts originally were potentially bone fragment from potentially sea turtle? Any input helps!

    Permian tracks from NM

    I found some more Permian tracks in New Mexico and I think they’re probably related to a Temnospondyl amphibian. I have the first track I found from this place here, but I also found one with 4 tracks in the rock that I’m fairly certain are some of the best I’ve found in a while. : Here are those tracks. Now something cool I noticed on this one is there is a track I circled here: because it pokes out on the other side, like this right here: I’ll also give you guys a close up of the ot

    Parasaniwa Tooth

    Happy New Year everyone. Tonight I thought I might post a fossil whose identity I wanted to confirm. I found it in Wyoming's Lance formation this summer and someone told me it might be a Pachycephalosaur premaxillary tooth because of it's carinae and ridges at the base. However after comparing my tooth to examples I could find online I felt that this ID was incorrect. Eventually I looked back over one of @Troodon's threads and found a jaw labelled as parasaniwa and those teeth matched what I had found. My tooth is about 6 mm long and about 3 mm wide.
