Possible Fossilized Rib (ID Help)
evanmistur posted a topic in Fossil IDFound this fossil in a riverbed in Fannin County (North Texas) while hunting for fossils from the cretaceous period. (This is a follow-up from the same trip as my previous post - thank you to those of you who helped ID the mosasaur vertebra! And also thank you for correcting my terminology on mosasaur vs mosasaurus ). I'm not totally sure what this is (at first I thought it was nothing too special - possibly just a very eroded Baculite as we were finding many of those in the area), but on closer inspection, there are fine striations on the fossil that make me think it is bone.

Help ID FL beach fossil
Demodame posted a topic in Fossil IDI appreciate all help! Thank you in advance. 68782332732__7D877EF6-5192-446F-BAB6-41C7039F2F03.MOV
Brandy Cole posted a topic in Fossil IDFound this a while back and had it in my unidentified pile. I assumed it was a small mammal rib and probably un-identifiable, but I took a second look recently, and there's something about the shape that doesn't quite look mammal to me. It also seems older than many of my finds because the entire in-fill at the broken end appears fully mineralized. I figured it was worth asking about. @Harry Pristis @Shellseeker @JohnJ @Meganeura @GPayton @garyc

Large Flat Bone--Rib?
Brandy Cole posted a topic in Fossil IDI found this large, flat bone fragment in a southeast Texas gravel bar. Not sure if there's enough detail here to make a solid ID, especially on the articular process. I tried comparing it to other large mammal flat bones like ribs and scapulas, but couldn't figure it out. Hoping someone with more experience can help ID it. Thanks for any help!
Rib?, late cretaceous marine
val horn posted a topic in Fossil IDWent hunting my local late cretaceous severn formation marine site. Found a 5 inch piece of bone (which is large for the site. I am guessing it is a rib piece because it is a long and flat oval bone. this is a site that has alot of turtle, enchodus and some croc and mossasaur. Is there anything to distinguish one rib chunk from another
