    Mazon Creek Coelacanth scale

    I had this concretion open today. I immediately noticed what I believe is a coelacanth scale, but on closer inspection there looks to be some other bits that might be related. Any thoughts? @jdp @RCFossils

    Fish scales

    Hi Forum, i'd like to post to you this specimen i found in Omhden (DE). It seems to me like fish scales, but because i'm a complete beginner i'd love to receive your opinion Sorry for low quality photos, i have tried different ligths. i'll do my best with better camera if you need. Total length 7cm, width 4cm Thanks a lot Paolo

  4. Hi! I’m still trying to identify one fossil from a particular unit of Pleistocene/Early Holocene lacustrine silt from my hometown of Saskatoon, but I figured I would look away from it for a bit to try and identify another fossil from the same unit I’ve been unable to classify. I have two specimens, both apparently of the same species. They are both approximately 0.5 millimetres across. They are perfectly circular, with lines radiating from the centre and rings of alternating colours (possibly representing growth lines). One specimen is photographed dorsally, showing its circular shape, the ot
  5. Hello there! I made my way down to Myrtle beach SC and found a few interesting bits that I would love some help identifying. Thank you for any information in advance! First off we have this scale-like piece (actually no idea what this could be, I've never seen anything like it before): Then we have what I think might be a shard of some kind of mineralized shell fragment? This seems similar to some fossilized turtle shells I've found in the past. Lastly, what might be (really guessing here) a part of a sea robin skull? Please take that with a grain of

    Dermal denticle

    Hello! Is it possible to identify this scale? May be to order, or family, or genus? Max size: ~ 0,5 mm. There is some relief on the sides of denticle (see arrow). Age: Eocene (Ypresian or Lutetian). Location: Ukraine. Thanks in advance!

    Fish scale in limestone?

    Is this a fish scale? Or just a concretion? It's 14.5mm in length. Glacial erratic limestone, found near Jeziorsko, Łódzkie, Poland.

    Mystery Devonian Fish

    I found this mysterious fossil in Richland, Michigan, and don't know what to make of it. It appears to have a fish scale and lots of bone fragments, as well as a piece of coral, in smoothed (Devonian?) sandstone. I don't know my fish very well; can anyone help?
  12. Hello everyone! I have wanted to create myself a dedicated scale to use for photographing fossils, as I too often forget to include a scale in my photos and I think that a special scale would be more interesting than just a ruler, it could also be helpful for objects that are not as flat for scale in 3 dimensions. My initial thought was to make a cube, but I also wanted to include both imperial and metric units so that everyone on the forum can easily tell the size. So for my first design I decided to try making a cube that has dimensions of one inch along all sides with a 1 cm3 cub
  13. Everyone please use an internationally recognised scale in your images. Coins aren’t good enough. How big is s rupee, or a farthing? I dunno. Of course a marmite jar is the same size worldwide Vegimite is NOT internationally recognised. I hope you’re taking notes @Jesuslover340

    Fish Scale?

    Anyone know what this is?? It looks like some sort of fish scale, and it has a chunk of some sort of bone or something attached to it. Anyways, here is main info: Date collected: 11/6/21 Formation: Catskill Member: Duncannon Age: Late Devonian, 365-361 mya What was collected: possible scale attached to a bone? Scale is broken in half. Appearance: scale is ridged, four ridges seen, covered in striations running from left to right. It looks like it is about as thick as half a dime.

    Scale from Al Ain

    Hello, I found this in Al Ain, United Arab Emirates after breaking open a soft limestone rock. I assume it's eocene in age. The orange color immediately grabbed my attention. I took some photos of it using my microscope and spotted a second, similar object opposite the first. I scraped a bit of the matrix off to reveal more of the second one.
  16. Good evening all and thanks again for everyone's help and patience with my finds....to that end, here's another one. Stark shale between Winterset and Bethany Falls limestone Pennsylvanian. I'm guessing a fish scale or shark denticle (it appears to be inversely ridged or elevated in deeper layers). I would still like to clean it a little better (the brown-filled divit) but wanted some thoughts prior-it will help me decide how to clean it. Thanks all!! Bone
  17. Looking for conodonts, I found and meticulously cleaned this object-at first I thought insect wing, but then fish scale, then plant, then, nuthin special. Thoughts again appreciated!! What say ye? (Stark shale, between Winterset and Bethany Falls, Pennsylvanian) . Bone
  18. Hello everyone, The Osteolepis macrolepidotus fossil I recently acquired came with a little surprise, It has a a fairly large impression of a cycloid scale with it, I was wondering if it was possible to identify it. I know lungfishes have these types of scales so maybe Dipterus? I am really not sure, I have been trying to look at the scales of fish found there but have not found many good references. The scale is about 1 cm in length. Any help would be appreciated.
  19. Dear Members, three years ago I found a small fossil in the Ames Limestone Formation (Pennsylvanian in age) exposed in Frick Park, Pittsburgh, PA. The Ames Limestone preserves a rich assemblage of marine invertebrate fossils (crinoids, corals, etc.). On the other hand vertebrates are much more rare (as far as I know). Originally only the tip was exposed, then I had a fossil preparator work on it, so that the whole specimen is now visible. Close up of the tip at 20X It is definetely fragmentary, but I don't know what it is. I wo

    Fish scale?

    Hello, I found this fossil a while ago in Ruwais, Abu Dhabi, UAE (United Arab Emirates). I have found many catfish barbs in that area, as well as crocodile fossils, so I am relatively sure that this is a fish scale, however, I cannot find any references online, so I don't know what this scale belongs to. It's attached to a larger piece of bone. (About 1cm in diameter)

    How To Weigh a Dinosaur

    The two main methods of estimating dinosaur weight actually agree more than they disagree. Estimates of dino weight from 1905 to now were compared and analyzed. https://phys.org/news/2020-08-dinosaur.html
