    Kem Kem tooth Crocodile?

    Here's a tooth I bought at the gem show back in the days when Moroccan vertebrate stuff was starting to appear at Tucson and other shows. I've been meaning to show it to people for years. It's from the Kem Kem Beds (Cenomanian), Taouz area, Morocco. It's about 61mm long with cutting edges that appear to be slightly crenulated rather than finely-serrated. It's oval in cross-section on the root end but the crown becomes blade-like toward the tip so it is somewhat labiolingually compressed. I assume it's a crocodile tooth but thought it might have a small chance at being from a di

    Lesofprimus Fossil Collection

    Here are a few photos of my entire collection spread out in my living room between 3 seperate tables and separated by groups; Table #1 Crocodilians, Theropod Dinosaurs, Marine Mammals and Marine Reptiles. Table #2 77 Different Shark Teeth Species. Table #3 Amphibians and Reptiles, Miscellaneous Fossils and Fish.

    Monster ichthyosaur vert

    Began prep on something quite special today. Though I’ll be uploading pictures once completed. I have always said, you always find your best stuff heading back to the car. That certainly can be said for this day. I’d not had much lucky all day, these days I’m looking more for stuff to add to the collection, rather than collecting for the sake of it. Couple of nice ammonites but that’s it. I then walked past a spot I had already walked past that morning, when I noticed what looked like a GIANT vert, laying amongst the shale from a recent cliff fall. Yup. It was. Safe to say my breathing w
  5. Hi everyone! Fun story behind these. I bought them when I was about 15 labeled as "Mosasaur Vertebrae". As I've gotten older and (hopefully) more experienced I'm questioning that ID after pulling them out recently. All three are from the Moroccan Phosphates. So what do you all think? I'm leaning towards croc on the third and Elasmosaur on the other two with a slight possibility of the first being really primitive whale, but I'm not sure. Any insight is greatly appreciated as always! Vertebra 1: 49.4 mm long, 52.36 mm tall, 36.54 mm and 34.8 mm wide. one

    Need help with identification

    Found this in a load of river rock delivered to my home in Omaha, Nebraska. Tried to find where the river rock came from but no luck. About the size of a large walnut. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Reptile Oklahoma?

    Hello everybody I am a bit worried about the fossil I show. We got it many years ago and do not know much about it. As I remember it should come from Oklahoma, Permian. Reptiles. That´s it , nothing more. In my brain are some reminds name could starts with "R" for the Animal, but... What do you think? thanks for support!
  9. Species level identification obtained from facet count (3-5 prisms labially; ~5 or indistinguishable lingually). See more information in Rempert et al. 2022 - Occurrence of Mosasaurus hoffmannii Mantell, 1829 (Squamata, Mosasauridae) in the Maastrichtian Phosphates of Morocco.

    What are these to you?

    I found this petrified snake/reptile head in North Carolina. I have this one and many others from my back yard. Including a petrified giant, and fingers with fingernails, perfectly preserved.. I know it's a petrified reptile from the petrification of 40 years of saltwater from the great flood. It's species is not in the internet anywhere that I can find, other than other petrified snakes, it's a one of a kind. I'm thinking it's extinct. It's very prominent for snake features and certainly a rock now. What does anyone here think? And I have many more like it. There are these and many others..

    Small Reptile Bone? What is it?

    Going through my fossils collected over the years and found this small complete bone. It was found in the Morrin Bridge area, Red Deer Badlands. It is a beautiful little bone but I have no idea what if belongs to. Would be Cretaceous age. Found it in the same layer within five feet or so of some carnivore dinosaur teeth, a few hadrosaur teeth, etc. I think it was an area where the bones, teeth, etc. were washed into originally and then fossilized. The bone is 2 1/4 inches or 5.7 cm in length. Any ideas?

    Mysterious skeleton fossil from China

    Hi all. As per request on my last post about the dinosaur eggs. Here is my fossil skeleton inside its matrix from Jiangxi, China. Bought it cheap, no clue what it is or what it could be. I can clearly see a skull, and what appears to be a claw or a hand. Nothing to see on the other side, I assume the rest of the skeleton is inside the matrix. Any help wil be appreciated, but I have let alot of knowledgable people look at it and no one was able to give me anything clear.

    Reptilian Skull?

    Hi, the skull below is found at Ganzhou of Jiangxi Province, China. It is very small, about 4.5cm in length. Does it look like a reptilian skull?
  16. First of all - sorry for bad and rude language)) So, I need some help with identification of this teeth. All was found in Russia, Trans-Urals region, in a few different rivers: Belyakova, Sugatka and Derney. There must be Eocene period, probably lutet or barton layer, but I can't be sure, because there is no bedrock, only fossils that river stream brings. Sometimes me and other people found there more old fossils, back to cretaceous even. I showed this photo to few reptile specialists from Saint Petersburg, but they sure that is no crocodile teeth, and insist that is a fish teeth. But i have f

    Permian Reptile Limb Identification?

    Hello all, I recently purchased this fragment of a limb bone of a reptile, which was labeled 'unidentified.' I was wondering if it would be possible to find out what it is, as it is really minuscule. Fossil Info: The fossil is 1.2cm long. According to the seller, it is from the Lower Permian, from the Leonardian Series. It was found in Lawton, Oklahoma, and the formation is the Arbuckle Group. I don't know if this is enough to go on since because of the small size. Thanks!
  18. Hi, I’ve recently been searching through some sifted gravel from a creek. I’ve been looking for microfossils, which I’ve had plenty of luck finding. All sorts of marine Cretaceous invertebrate micros are abundant in the creek gravel, as well as the occasional micro shark/fish tooth, scale, and bone fragment. I encountered a tooth that stood out from anything I’ve found so far. It has a conical shape, and is recurved. Something about this tooth seems very reptile-like. Almost looks like a tiny version of a crocodile or mosasaur tooth. The tooth measures 1 millimeter in length. I tried

    Paleoart of Keichousaurus

    I've never seriously done paleoart before. I have been wanting to try my hand at it for years but passed on it for one reason or another. Recently I fell in love with looking at fossils of keichousaurus. I also love lizards. So I decided yesterday to just do it. So here are my results. If I messed up on the anatomy in any way, please don't hesitate to let me know.
  21. Seller said this was probably a reptile toe bone. I was just curious to know if any more info could be gleaned from it? Measurements in imperial. Thanks!

    Permian reptile teeth?

    Hi y'all, I was thinking again about some Permian reptile teeth, I've seen them referred to online as 'parareptile,' but would like collective and/or professional insight. They are pretty distinctive, with a smooth labial face, and a striated lingual face. These are all from Waurika, OK (Wellington fm, Lower Permian). I have several examples, but they're not much different from these two. @jdp @dinodigger 3.5 mm tall: 2 mm tall: They vaguely remind me of a Caseid tooth, which has the same character of the striations/no striations (o

    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.

    Reptilian skull

    I found this skull in our field next to our house last week. It was being pushed up from the ground. The photo shows the front R side of the face w/ clear jawline, R eye socket & R side of a crest. I would like ID help, please. We are 1/2 hour south of the WI border. It was near a fossilized, partially opened egg & the limestone-encrusted skull of a juvenile lizard, among other fossils. There are volcanic rocks nearby & we believe that the interstate Rock River was considerably larger, covering our property & bringing those things south to IL.
