  1. Hello there everyone! I found this in North Myrtle Beach, any ideas as to what it is? It's got some porous parts which make me think bone but I have no clue. Thanks in advance for any information!

    Maybe osteoderm fossil?

    I didnt find this, but inherited it from my dad who passed away last year. He got it from his friend,( 1990s i think) who passed away shortly thereafter. In 2011, it was put on display at the local museum as an 'indian relic'. It was also sent to 2 colleges for analysis. I was told that it was determined not to be man made which dismissed the artifact idea. This is what i can tell u from what little i know ofit.... it was found in Macon county, NC, USA. It was stored at WCU until I asked the museum to return the item last year. I think its an osteoderm fossil? Thanx for any info. W
  4. Hi all. Took another trip to our closest site yesterday - a Carboniferous marine deposit on the shores of the Firth of Forth, Scotland. Amongst the usual Bivalves and more familiar shapes (which I may need to ask about on here at some point - as I have only the wildest guess of what they actually are) we found the below. It looks for all the world like a coarsely textured skin of small scales. I'm aware that soft tissue preservation is incredibly rare, so am dubious - but I don't know what else it might be. Anyone able to help? Nb. I haven't done any work on this at al

    Strange fossil

    Hi I live in the UK near the coast in devon and my bro found this. Its strange as its in flint stone and has a strange pattern !?
  6. 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!

    Exciting Finds!

    I found these dinosaur fossils near where I live. One is dinosaur skin and one is a footprint of a long-necked dinosaur. I already know this, but maybe someone could tell me how much they are worth? Sorry for the closeups - I'll try to go back later and get wider shots.

    Fossilized Skin?

    I found this fossil in a pallet of rocks I got for landscaping. The rock came out of the Arkansas river. When you stick your tongue to it, it sticks as a bone would. I think it looks like reptilian skin. Could anybody help me out?

    Nodule #7: Skin impression?

    From the album: Muncie Creek Shale Phosphatic Nodules

    I believe the dark brown may indeed be skin while the blue part is cartilage.
  10. From the album: Muncie Creek Shale Phosphatic Nodules

    One of my larger concretions, I find this one very interesting and plan to dig out the rest of it once I learn how to prep fossils from concretions!
  11. http://www.sci-news.com/paleontology/dinosaur-carotenoid-coloration-10354.html Non-avian dinosaurs may have had bright color on their skin, scales and beaks in a manner similar to modern birds, according to a paper published in the journal Evolution. http://cdn.sci-news.com/images/2021/12/image_10354-Orange-Dinosaurs.jpg Link to article: Estimating the distribution of carotenoid coloration in skin and integumentary structures of birds and extinct dinosaurs [paywalled, sadly] My Uni does not have access- I'd love to read this one if someone has

    Possible dinosaur skin?

    Hey there. So my husband has some land and we have a natural spring creek and we go just about every weekend. I'm always finding fossilized coral and quartz. Arrowheads, etc. Well, yesterday I stumbled across something that looks to me almost like skin. Hopefully, someone here can help me out .

    Ray Dermal Scutes

    From the album: Gainesville Florida Microscopic Miocene

    The top two are ray dermal scutes, they are like scales embedded in the skin of the ray. Ignore the bottom two.

    Unidentified skin fossil

    Hello everyone. I'm not at all up on fossils, though I do sometimes turn them up while fieldwalking for stone tools in the Lincolnshire Wolds. Normally I just find belemnites, ammonites and other shellfish but today I found this piece at a field edge not far from Horncastle. I've put "dinosaur" and "fish" in the tags purely because I had to put something. I'd love to know what this is and would be delighted if anyone can identify it. Here it is at the moment of finding and after a gentle wash. Thanks in advance, Ted.

    Reptile Skin Fossil?

    What is this fossil? It is a hard rock found in the bottom of a creek that happens to be very low around the Bismarck, North Dakota area. It looks like some sort of reptile skin. The size is about 1 1/2" x 3/4".

    Reptile skin

    Hello. Writing from Quebec, Canada. I was given a small box of trinkets from a friend who passed on. Inside were a few rocks and one of them looks as if there are skin impressions. Tiny but definitely looks skin like. Any one have an idea. I’ll try and take more pics later. It’s about a a half inch in diameter. Thanks.
  18. I found this one near shore right after big storm here in Long Beach NY- Trying to identify. It has raised skin like bumps and measures: 4 x 5 inches. On the back side embedded with shells and 2 bumps coming through from front side? so a thick skin....? when googled the only thing it matched with was dinosaur skin? I have found many arrow heads and many interesting fossils ones here in the last 2 years, always right along the water/shore. Any thoughts anyone? Thanks!
  19. Big piece of skin, is this actual mammoth skin? Seller says it's from Yakutia.

    Dinosaur skin fossil?

    Hi, this was found in a dry wash in Phoenix, AZ. It was pretty dirty and dusty before I cleaned it off. It has an odd shape, it’s angled and curved. Don’t have any other info really. It feels how I would imagine a dinosaur skin would be though... or maybe dragon.

    Fish skin imprint?

    While cleaning conodonts (and the next object to follow this topic), I came across this "imprint"? It isn't a defined shape, but has a very uniform pattern. Thinking fish skin? It looks a lot like the Iniopterygian I found a couple months ago but the "scales" are smaller?.....I'll let ya'll decide or comment!! Thanks!! Bone

    Is this really it?

    Hello, I received this yesterday as a birthday gift - it was sold as an imprint of hadrosaur skin, Cretaceous, from Hell Creek. Do you think it really is hadrosaur skin?
