    Cro-Magnon skull?

    Hello, I came across this listed as a piece of Cro-Magnon skull, specifically the right parietal bone. Age seems to be Pleistocene, and it's said to be from a gravel pit in Poland. I was wondering if it looks correct and legitimate? It certainly looks like a skull bone of some sort. I did find this post that discussed another supposed Cro-Magnon bone (seems like it turned out not to be one), and there may be some legal/ethical concerns here as well. Perhaps I need to consult an anthropologist? Thanks.

    Ankylosaurus skull piece and scute?

    I ended up buying this piece, and probably should have posted it here before i did that.. but here are two fossils listed as Ankylosaurus skull piece and scute. Can anyone here give their opinion on it? I don't have county, but it's from the hell creek formation, south Dakota. The largest piece is 10 cm long. @Troodon

    Show Us Your Dinosaur Jaws!

    Show us your dinosaur jaws! I recently got my first piece. A partial dentary of a juvenile Edmontosaurus from the Hell Creek. After scanning it with photogrammetry I also mirrored the jaw to create the right side of the jaw as well. Quite happy with how the scan turned out too.
  12. Hello all. I picked up a mystery specimen. It's from the Kem Kem (Tegana Formation), ostensibly. It weighs 1.5 pounds. The skull has hollow cavitiies (air sacs?) inside, but I can't tell if they're air sacs; for arteries, or for nerves. They're definitely not mere 'holes'. I spent hours cleaning out pebbles and tiny/flat river-worn rocks and red matrix that filled almost every one of the holes that you see, so almost all of the holes were open pathways when the creature was alive. It was sold as Carcharadontosaur, but with an emphasis that it's not known what bone it is. The bone is so

    Cetacean vert?

    Found this in the water near the fossil beach of Westmoreland State Park in Va. Seems like a whale / dolphin bone, but what part? Is it a vert piece? As always, thanks for the help.

    Bison or Beef skull?

    A friend found this partial skull, I couldn't decide between bison or just beef, wanted to get some opinions. Found on the North Platte in Wyoming.
  16. I finally completed the reorder of my collection of fossils and minerals. It is a wooden hexagonal display cabinet of several wood/glass shelf; in the pictures attached I only show some of them. I 3D printed more than 20 custom drawer compartments for the smallest specimens. I decided to go for a modular design, so I can adapt every compartment to the specimen. As printing material, I used a "wood PLA" filament 3D printed with 1 mm nozzle on the Alfawise U20 3D printer. LINK I finally added a strip LED inside the cabinet door and powered it via a USB power-b

    Bird skull from Yixian

    Is anyone able to help with this bird skull from Yixian? The skull I think is twisted upside down. With its eyesocket at the bottom. Also is that bits of feather? Does anyone recognise which species? I do not think confusciornis as they are rounded on the top. Plus, the crest near the feather isnt presant on confusciornis--if it is a type of crest. But if I have the skull orietated right, the crest is on its lower jaw?
  18. Saw this listing for sale and considering buying it, looks like a partial cave bear skull, could anyone verify? Also there are strange marks on it, which the seller believes to be scavenger marks, want other opinions on those. It was found in a Hungarian Cave deposit.

    Is this a skull of a armoured ankylasauridae

    Im just a noob but the place im finding these is very odd
  20. Good day. Recently got this mystery specimen from the owners of an extremely productive and well-known ranch in Powder River Country, Montana (please see photos). The specimen was found by the owner. Unfortunately, this specimen is not like those. Here's the only additional info: "This large piece of skull [?] was found in one piece. Weighs approximately 4 lb. 3 oz. The measurements are L 7 2/10" W 4 3/4" No repairs. Color is various shades of brown. Some of the openings actually have some matrix in them, but I left that, in order to stabilize the thin walls."
  21. I found this Upper Devonian nodule containing bones years ago. Of course I don't find too many Devonian vertebrate fossils here in NY so I squirreled it away to get it properly prepared and IDed someday. After doing some recent rearranging of my collection, I decided to bring this fossil out into the light. What I know - #1. Its a vertebrate fossil for sure and it looks to me to be cranium elements. #2. The size is 5.5" x 5.5". #3. It was found in the Cashaqua shale nodule layer. I also find straight and coiled shelled cephalopods, wood, and tiny bivalves in this unit.
  22. Hello together, its been some time since I posted a model, and there are quite a few unfinished ones in the making. realizing how small Atopodentatus' iconic head was in relation to its body, I decided to rather try and print a lifesize skull than a complete downscaled skeleton. Morphing recent species' skulls has the advantage that you get anatomically looking detail, although on the other hand it is wrong detail. So I would much appreciate feedback when you spot something particularly wrong. @pachy-pleuro-whatnot-odon? And Atopodentatus took some morphing. Here is how f
  23. Hello I recently found this specimen of a presumed Psittacosaurus skull I have no knowledge about the authentication of this piece the seller claims the skull has restorations less than 10%

    Mosasaur skull piece? Pierre shale sd

    This fossil has many grooves, holes and structures. My only guess is it's a part of a skull of mosasaur or plesiosaur. Any ideas? Or good reference pics of skull parts for comparison? Thanks
