    South Carolina (Possible) Fossil haul!

    Hello everyone! I'm just reposting this single 'fossil'(?) as it was grouped into a different topic where it remained identified. Any help with information would be greatly appreciated! (Thanks again for those who have already posted on that original topic)

    Various Items from Hanna Park - Jacksonville, FL

    Hello everyone! I took my daughter and 6 year old granddaughter on a “girls only road-trip” to Hanna Park in Jacksonville, Florida for some relaxation time. We did a lot of beach combing and I found some great fossils. I’ve been able to identify the majority of my haul, but need some ID assistance with a few remaining items. I have a some potential dermal denticles and scutes, and a piece of unknown bone. The bone is is very thin, less than 3 mm. I also have two TINY teeth; one may be a barracuda. I believe the other may be a shark but I haven’t been able to link it to a species.

    Possible Scute?

    Found in the peace river. Is this a glypt scute? Almost looks sandstone but not sure if fossils end up being sandstone. Any ideas?
  4. I've been trying to do some research about actual gator scutes not ostoderms that we call scutes. I know that Dino skin can be found so can croc also? Would love to hear about this subject and see some great photos if possible too please!

    Shark teeth and scute

    Sometime last week I went to a creek in Southeast Alabama to find shark teeth. I got thirty nine teeth and what I believe is a partial glyptodon scute. I believe that the majority are sandtiger teeth (but from YouTube and online images could be goblin) and a few mackerel shark teeth. I also got my first tiger shark tooth from this site. I was hoping someone here could help identify the scute and supposed sandtiger teeth.

    First Fossil Hunt at the Brazos

    I've had some free time this weekend, so I decided to mix things up and try hunting the Brazos instead of the usual cretaceous formations around Austin and DFW. The Pleistocene period is something I've always been fascinated by (probably due to the Ice Age movies), so the long drive wasn't enough to dissuade me. The weather was just right which made a day by the river all the better. This being my first time at the Brazos, I was a bit unfamiliar with the geography/prime hunting locations. I settled on parking by a bridge and decided to spend my day checking out both sides of the river. Navigat

    croc scute

    Hello again! I found this bone in the Boulonnais, North of France, late Jurrassic sediments. I think it's a crocodile scute (like steneosaurus) but with some doubt because it looks a bit different. It's also slightly curved and about 3 x 3 cm. Regards, Niels

    Scute, scale, or shell?

    This is a large scale or scute from the Yorktown formation in North Carolina. The pattern Is familiar as a reptile scute but the shape and thickness of the specimen isn’t present in any of my other scutes. It tapers to a diamond point and is less than a centimeter thick. The top face is flaky and covered in old barnacle holds. Another neat mystery I’m trying to clear up! (Edit: It’s a sturgeon scute) Frank

    Some kind of scute?

    Myrtle Beach, January, 2022 I'm thinking this might be some kind of scute. I haven't much experience in picking these up. Saw a picture of a gar scute that reminded me of this. Any ideas? Thanks!
  10. Hello together, I am looking for a nice Glyptodon scute, preferably in europe, because shipping costs are what keeps me from getting one from the US. Open for suggestions concerning trade (Fossils , selfmade models) Best Regards, J

    Triassic fossil?

    Triassic scute, shell or paper weight? Found roadside with mixed road stones in NJ midway between Flemington and Lambertville Rt 202. This is part of the Newark supergroup sedimentary rock deposited during the Triassic period. I can't put this down because it feels biological not geological. All help greatly appreciated. My first post.
  12. Hopefully these photos are clear enough. If it can’t be identified further than “scute” thats fine, but I’m curious.

    Osteoderm Identification

    Inland Venice,FL. Pleistocene material. Removing matrix from specimen that I thought was Equus jaw. Several confirmed teeth from this 2’ x 2’ square. During removal, I found this. Before I continue removing matrix, looking for identification of this osteoderm. I have also found (jet black) alligator jaw piece approximately 10’ feet away. Thanks in advance. I am also looking for feedback on whether to continue removing matrix or display fossils in matrix.
  14. While hiking in the Central Alberta Badlands Near Toleman in Red Deer River Valley came across two pieces of fossilized matter that looked very different than most of the bone fragments I have encountered while on similar outings. If I was to take a wild & uneducated guess I would say they look like they could be osteoderms? Any help to ID these strange pieces would be greatly appreciated. Thank you In advance.

    Scute Help

    Hi! a beginner here, found what I think is a scute. Would love to narrow down what kind of creature it might be from. I found it in the hills west of Medicine Hat near the red deer river (the same formation as dinosaur provincial park, but outside the boundary). thanks Rachel

    Cretaceous scute to identify

    Help needed ! I prepped part of this bone with the highest difficulties because of a thin crust of iron sticking to the fossil. It comes from continental cretaceous of South of France. Before going further I would like to identify it to assess if it is worth the trouble . I hesitate between a Nodosauridae scute and simply a... turtle scute. I took pictures of the top (under the thin remaining matrix it is all bone), sides and bottom (which is totally unprepped and may never be, just note it is flat)

    Peace River Puzzle

    When I was back out on the Peace River Friday I was pulling up a lot of small shark teeth and miscellaneous pieces of bone. At pone point I looked into the sifter and spotted what looked like a piece of a giant armadillo scute. I was disappointed because it was a small piece, but clearly a scute. I had retrieved a couple of whole ones in the same spot on previous visits. Just as I was about to toss it back I spotted another small piece in the sifter. I decided to hang onto both and as I cleared the sifter I found three more pieces for a total of five. At that point I was not even sure the
  18. Every now and then something weird shows up in my sifter. Look at this cute little guy. Hexagonal shape with a faint raised area in the middle. Texture, shape, thickness all seem right for a giant armadillo, but the size is tiny. I've never seen one this small. Can someone confirm or deny this? Could this be from a baby/juvenile? Could it be a baby glyptodont. I'm stumped.

    Sauropod scute -- Kem Kem

    Hi, I saw this for sale and figured it'd be nice to display alongside my Kem Kem Sauropod teeth. But is it actually a dermal scute as described? I see a few others of these sold as sauropod scutes, but it just be a case of misidentification, so figured it best to check here. It is from Kem Kem. Sellers description says these are sold as scutes but that he hasn't seen any scientific papers describing them as such, so the ID could be wrong. Thanks

    Some kind of Scute?

    Can someone help me ID this please? Found in Alafia river
  21. Hey Everyone, Had a decent day out at NSR. Not as good as one person who found 18 verts, 2 arrow heads, and more. Found NSR, Delta County, TX I am thinking this might be a turtle scute but i am still earning. Any thoughts appreciated.

    Is this an Ankylosaurus scute?

    Looking for an ID on this scute. Found in the Dinosaur Park formation. Length is 3 inches.

    Weird piece of bone/ scute.

    Hello, I found this piece 2 weeks ago on the beach of Breskens in Zeeland. I don’t know what it is and there were not several options. I get stuck with this piece of bone. I hope that someone know what it is! The sizes are in cm.
  24. Fun trip to the North Sulphur River Texas. I really like the giant coprolite and Holmesina armadillo scute. @GeschWhat
  25. Beautiful weather forecast and Green Mill Run is low enough to hunt. Even knowing I rarely find much worth displaying, sometimes you just need a day in the field so I coerce cajole one of my housemates to take the morning and have a little adventure. Even with every intention to only use the screen with the larger size mesh, nevertheless within the first dozen shovels we are using the smaller mesh. I suppose if we are ever really serious about leaving behind the little fossils, we will have to leave behind the small mesh screen! But that is hard to do when we find such little gems as s
