    Is it or is it not a fossil ?

    I know it’s probably a dumb thing to think but me and my wife can’t get over how much this looks like a human skull in every way. Been looking online just for some answer on how to identify if it is or isn’t. I found it in a river almost completely submerged in a nasty mud and green water that was in a calm of the river
  2. Hey everyone! I have found an amazing looking skull truly remarkable and wanted to hear what you think about it, does it have any restorations? Thanks!

    Horned skull fossil--Goat? Muskox?

    Found a mineralized skull fragment with broken horn bases in the sandy riverbed of the Brazos River in southeast Texas. Mostly pleistocene fossils here. The horns seem fairly close-set, which I wouldn't expect with bison. But they're fairly wide and thick, so I was leaning away from things like deer or antelope. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Thanks. --Brandy
  4. Hey guys I found an impressive looking Chilotherium rhino fossil skull and was wondering what you think about it, how does it look in terms of restoration and repair. Thanks!

    potential miocene hyena skull?

    need some help identifying this, im pretty good with extant species but this stumped me. just purchased and has yet to come in the mail. seller didnt include any information except that it was a miocene hyena and these pictures. i know this is super vague, so no worries if we cant identify it i was told it could be a percrocuta, it measures 7-8 inches, 17-20 centimeters long i will be able to describe more when i receive it
  6. just posted this in fossil id to see what exactly it is but i shouldve made sure it was real first haha. this is on the way, i dont have many pictures or good ones but i was wondering if its an obvious fake or not, as i can return it in a small window of time after i receive it. any help is really appreciated
  7. Hey everyone! I have found a nice looking skull online and wanted to get your opinion on it. It's an Dinocrocuta (early hyena) fossil skull. It supposedly has some minor reconstruction and some glued back parts but that's it. what do you think?
  8. Hey guys! I wanted to get your opinion on an early hyena skull I found online in terms of its quality and preservation, and how much do you think it should be worth. Thanks!

    Jr. Bison? or Bos

    Found on river gravel bar in Sothern Minnesota. I know its a partial bovid skull - any ideas on species? I'm thinking young male bison. Sediments in the area range from cretaceous to holocoen with a good amount of Wisconsin lobe glacial till. Previously we have found bison, mammoth, and ancient horse...
  10. Hi all! Very new to fossils, but hope to be stickin' around long term! While on a trip to Traverse City, MI this past weekend, I came across what appeared to be an amazing Moroccan crocodile skull fossil specimen (pics attached) at a mineral, fossil, and jewelry shop. The seller agreed to sell it for at a discount with guaranteed authenticity. I excitedly posted it on a fossil subreddit when I got home, and was immediately informed this specimen was an obvious fake from Morocco, and that Moroccan fossils are often fakes. One user specified the skull was likely constructed with san

    Dinosaur skull?

    Hi guys, my dad found this and says it's a fossilized dinosaur head embedded in this rock, my family and friends are doubtful. He found this a few days ago and had me convinced enough to dig it up. I am unsure whether or not this is just a cool looking rock that happens to look like a dinosaur head, or if it is actually a fossilized head embedded in this rock. Found in Munster Ireland, you can make out what seems to be a eye socket, mouth, and just has the general shape of what you would expect a dinosaur head look like on one side. The other side is all rock and on the bot
  13. Hi everybody, I've seen this mosasaur skull... it has been classified like Eremiasaurus heterodontus from morocco . 750 x 380 mm. What do you think? Thanks
  14. Hello everyone, This is my first post on this forum. I've found this impressive Sabre-toothed cat skull for sale. Can you help me to identify this fossil and if it is genuine? It said to have less than 10% restoration on the maxilla and around 25 to 30% on the jaw. Any comment or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks!

    Hi everyone, I have the most amazing story that happend this morning. I went to deliver something to a client of mine, not expecting anything a bit sleepy on the way over there, I drove up to hes amazing house drive trough , and hes secretary showed me the way. I unload the car with my delivery, and she opens the door of the castle... locks and keys sounding for a while, a big wooden door opens.. And there it was.. A full size skull of the Triceratops, just.. amazing. I was stunned. I almost dropped my stuff, I stared at it so long, still shaking f
  16. I acquired this fascinating fossil at the recent show. My first reptile bones. The dealer said it is from Morocco and of the same age (and matrix) as the mosasaur jaw sets he had next to it. But he wasn’t sure if it was a baby mosasaur or a different species of smaller aquatic reptile. I’m pretty sure TFF can answer these questions I have. 1) Is this a baby mosasaur or a different species (if so what species)? 2) Can you identify the visible bones? 3) Is it worth it or feasible to attempt to reveal more of this fossil? 4) If so, what special procedures/tools would be necess
  17. Hello everyone, as im following up on my previous post while im on vacation someone tipped me to visit a local Fossil shop in a small town. So they have a massive Spinosaur Skull displayed and what interests me the most a huge claw with bone. sadly i had a language barrier and someone from my friends translated a bit for me. The shop owner was not very friendly and seemed a little suspicious with my questions ‘are they authentic’ and ‘where lies there origin’. He then told me they are purely authentic and that he was doing this for 35 years. He took it personal that I ask

    Skull Chunks?

    Found these pieces sitting together today and I’m wondering if they might be pieces of a ceratopsian skull. Don’t seem to fit together so they might not be from the same dinosaur. They have similar texture to other ceratopsian skull bones I have including a lacrimal and frill pieces, but I might be off on that assumption. Dinosaur park fm. I’ll also toss this in too, though I haven’t cleaned it at all so it might be hard to ID. It’s a separate piece, and was so weird I couldn’t leave it behind.

    any info would be wonderful!

    This was recovered near a gold mine in western Montana. I have absolutely no idea what it is. any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
  20. I am just driving back from a fantastic 5 day collecting trip in Southeastern Montana. I had the opportunity to collect on a private ranch that had not been heavily hunted for several years. Our group made quite a few interesting finds. I am hoping that someone on the forum might be able to assist in identifying this unusual bone. It is definitely theropod and based on the size, likely tyrannosaur. It appears to be a portion of the skull but I am having trouble matching it up. I apologize for the lousy pictures in advance. The bone measures approximately 5-6

    Help needed on possible skull fragment

    My wife found this chunk of bone at Myrtle Beach, SC yesterday evening. I think it is a skull fragment. Can anyone confirm or deny and maybe identify a species? Thanks The photos are from both sides of the bone. #1,4,&5 are what I'm calling interior.
