    Oligocene fossils ID

    .These fossils are from Romania. They look like crustaceans ichnofossils. If these Eocene or Oligocene fossils are really traces of crustaceans then what genus did make them? If you think that you can identify them write your opinion here. Thank you very much.
  2. We have found thousands of these little button shaped fossils all in one area. They range in size from .5cm to 2cm but most are right at about 1.5cm. Most of them are nearly round, about .5cm thick in the middle, but taper to the edge, very much like a curved button or a pillow. On the outer surface most look just like overlapping layers, but when broken open across the middle they have a very fine spiral structure. I would very much like to identify them.
  3. A couple of days ago a new Azhdarchid Pterosaur was described from Transylvania in Romania. Named Albadraco Tharmisensis, it is know from a couple of beak fragments and a cervical vertebra & the abstract is linked below with a picture of the fossils. https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0195667119301016

  7. Dear TFF Members, these are the fossils I found in Humor, Romania - this is a village situated in Bukovina. They come from a slope at one of the banks of Humor river - from the point indicated on the map. I have no idea which geological era the rocks come from (I just saw a nice place with multiple rocks and I started looking for fossils), so it's hard for me to determine what I have actually found The first one looks a little bit like Calamites?
  8. Hi everyone, I was wondering if any of those stones might be pieces of dinosaur bones (or any bones, in fact). They were found in Romania, in a valley of the river close to Hateg. If anyone replies to my question, I have a request: could you please send me a private message? I'm on holidays and I have limited access to a computer, but I receive messages from TFF on my mobile phone, so I will know whether I should keep the stones or get rid of them Thanks a lot for help

    Ursus spelaeus Cave Bear Molar Tooth Transylvania, Romania Devensian Stage, Pleistocene Period (20,000 Years Old) The cave bear (Ursus spelaeus) was a species of bear that lived in Europe and Asia during the Pleistocene and became extinct about 24,000 years ago during the Last Glacial Maximum. Both the word "cave" and the scientific name spelaeus are used because fossils of this species were mostly found in caves. This reflects the views of experts that cave bears may have spent more time in caves than the brown bear, which uses caves only for hibernation. Cave bears were comparable in
  11. The Transylvanian area of Romania boasts a rich fossil record of dinosaurs, which lived on an island (Haţeg Island) during the very end of the Cretaceous. Many of these are dwarfed in body size or exhibit other unusual features thought to be linked to their insular habitat. One of the most common of these dinosaurs is the rhabdodontid ornithopod Zalmoxes. This paper takes a look at new specimens found at the Nălaț-Vad locality. A catalog of Zalmoxes (Dinosauria, Ornithopoda) specimens from the Upper Cretaceous Nălaț-Vad locality, Hațeg Basin, Romania. (American Museum novi

    My Display Overview

    Hello there paleontologists, fossil enthusiast, and everything in between. If you couldn't tell this is the first content I've ever made on the fossil forum so please excuse errors and, or inexperience I apologize in advance. Here is my collection of display fossils as well as modern bones keep in mind this is purely what I have on display I keep the vast majority of fossils I posses in storage with lots of support such as bubble rap and various other materials to ensure complete security of precious peeks into our planet's history. If you have any questions

    An incredible specimen excavated from Brasso Romania authentic/orginal fossil.
  14. A tooth with strong affinities to Carcharodontosaurids was found in Romania. Valanginian age would put it much older than those found in the Kem Kem of Morocco. Tooth looks like it's in great condition and indeed does look like one of those out of the Kem Kem.

  15. Hello from Barlad, Romania! I have the pleasure to announce that an important frament of Deinotherium sp. was discovered recently by my friend and menthor dr. Lauretiu Ursachi from Vasile Parvan Museum (Barlad, Romania). This is the second Deinotherium discovered in Romania since the one found by G. Stefanescu in 1894. Here are a few articles: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-3142189/7-million-year-old-fossil-elephant-ancestor-east-Romanian-village.html http://www.romaniajournal.ro/bones-of-7-million-old-elephants-grandsire-discovered-in-vaslui/ http://www.romania-insider.co
