  1. West Virginia Turkey Hunter Discovers Giant Sloth Skull https://www.outdoorlife.com/hunting/hunter-finds-ground-sloth-skull/
  2. I sculpt scale model dinosaur skulls (and more) on a popular 3D printing service. I put a lot of research and effort into getting these as accurate as I can. These are my personal copies, painted in acrylic with D.I.Y stands.
  3. Here is a ready-to-display psittacosaurus on a custom built armature that I am willing to trade for something special. All bones displayed are real bone, no repros to fill in gaps. Total length just over 36 inches. All bones are attached to the armature reversibly (museum wax, wire, string). The base is black walnut. The framework is welded steel. IT is sitting on a placemat for size reference. I have a second psittacosaurus that is not mounted, the bones are redder in color, and it was previously mounted with many glued joints. That one is almost four feet long and n
  4. Hello! I'm a new member with a question. I hope it's ok for me to ask this question and I hope it's according to all the rules I've been a fan of the forum for a while, but just mainly browsed a bit, but now I've got a bit of a problem... I'm basically a giant newbie when it comes to this, so please treat me like one (I hope you don't mind). So I've always had a very big fascination for the woolly rhinoceros. It's been a dream for me to own a rhino skull one day, so I had an opportunity recently and decided to go for it. I bought a damaged skull,

    Found Skull encased in rock!

    I' m a local photographer in Flagler Beach, FL. I frequent a local beach almost daily. I have come across quite an interesting find. Currently due to stormy weather causing rough waves and some higher than normal tides the rocks have been sliding down into the ocean and breaking apart. Well a wonderful treasure was exposed in one of the rocks. A skull. There is also a tooth and what looks to be bone vertebrate. I am in the process of excavating currently but would love to know who this skull belongs to. Any help is appreciated!!
  6. Any thoughts on this?? I found in Indiana In a creek embankment surrounded by thick blue mud/clay. Thank u

    Brazos River Skull Chunk

    Found this strange little chunk of bone about two weeks ago on the Brazos and have had zero luck trying to identify it on my own. Nothing seems like an exact match. The complex series of holes and tube-like structures on the one side makes me think ear bone, and the suture markings lining the edges of the bone on the back side make me think skull fragment. Similarly, the thin raised area makes me think zygomatic process. My best guess would be something like the temporal bone on the back of a bison or horse skull, but I haven't been able to find much to make me sure of that ID. @Harry Pristis

    Skull piece?

    Any ideas what type of bone piece this is? I am inclined to say it is a skull piece from a whale. It is heavy - seems too heavy to be a vert fragment. Found it in the Potomac near Stratford Hall and the Horsehead Cliffs. (VA/MD)

    Texas Permian Skull

    All that was on the label for this item was that it’s from the Permian age and from Texas. I don’t have any further info on it. Does anybody know what this is?
  10. This Psittacosaurus skull comes from a seller, who claims that it has "5% restoration". Are there any red flags here?

    Large Ear Bone?

    Found what seems like a partial skull and possibly an ear bone. Brazos River, southeast Texas. Never found anything like this before, but the darker smaller segment reminded me of ear bone threads I have seen. The size and general shape of the darker 'ear bone' sent me in the mammoth direction, but I'm not confident in it.

    Second Skull ID Please

    This is the second of the two skull I cant ID. I am leaning toward canine of some sort. maybe? I assume this one is also from China considering the matrix still attached looks the same as the larger skull in my other topic. Any help is appreciated.

    Mystery bone

    I’m hoping someone can help me out with this ID- it is driving me nuts!! I have looked through all my books twice but I can’t find a match. I was thinking skull or pelvis of some sort but I can’t seem to pinpoint it. Southern gulf coast FL creek
  15. Hello all, I have a small baleen whale skull that I need to preserve. It was found on a beach and the sun had bleached it. After a short time it has started to flake, crack and sort of fall apart. It's very aged and porous, is there something I can coat it in to preserve it?
  16. Found on Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, January 2022 Doesn't look like any turtle shell I've found before. Pretty lacy pattern on the front. The back side of it is very symmetrical, as if whatever this thing was, this is the whole part of it (or at least it is worn down evenly to show it is the center of whatever the whole part of it was.) Very thin though it comes to a peak at the top, middle. Thanks for your help! Paula
  17. Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, January, 2022 This kind of reminds me of the searobin skull plates I've collected, so maybe it's a skull plate of another fish? Definitely not searobin. Thanks for your help! Paula

    Distinctive bone

    I try to get my fossil friends to join TFF, but still have a few who want my help in gettng odd finds here. All I have in the photos. Found in Gulf of Mexico while hunting Megs. @Boesse Maybe a process of a Baleen whale earbone. The grooved side seems possible, but the other side reminds me of jaw. The Gulf collects both marine and land animal fossils, just a lot more marine naturally.
  19. Hi everyone! I purchased this "Mosasaurus Skull" about a year ago. I'm certain that it's fake, but I was curious as to how bad of a fake it was (to humor me) and what kind of teeth these are. Thanks!
  20. Hi everyone, I recently acquired this piece which I'm fairly certain is a piece of the brain case. The issue is I don't know what animal it's from. I've looked at pictures of skulls of cetaceans, deer, bear, camel, everything I could think of. The closest I saw is a fossil peccary skull that was for sale on etsy but I couldn't find any other examples to compare it to. What do you all think? measurements are 2.25 inches wide 2 inches tall, 2.5 inches long.

    Need help please....

    Found in Louisiana. Doesn't look like a rock to me but I can be wrong. Any help is appreciated. Thanks
  22. Dear Forum members, A few years ago I bought this piece from a fellow collector. The description mentioned that it is probably a Platecarpus sp. atlas and axis vertebrae, Niobrara Fm. Gove Co. Kansas. I think that this is acutally the supraoccipital, epioccipital, basisphenoid and several other skull parts. I do not know if this is indeed from a Platecarpus species? if so, which species could this be? I'd like to know whether this piece is Coniacian, Santonian or Campanian in age. Perhaps the preservation already can point in a direction. the fossils are all very flatt

    Who and what is this?

  24. Hello FossilForum, any help in identifying these pieces I have included would be greatly appreciated! I believe these are various types of teeth and jaw pieces and some entire skulls included. I have numerous crocodile skulls I believe. Thanks for looking and any info or help! TURTLE SHELL? This is what I think is a chunk of a Turtle Shell. SKULLS? Front Back Skull #2 TEETH:
  25. Hi all, I recently made a bid on a Moroccan crocodile skull w/ associated vertebrae and a leg bone. The specimen is supposed to be from the phosphate mines of Khourigba, Morocco. Aside from some minor restoration to one of the condyles at the rear of the skull and the upper vertebrae at the back of the skull, it supposedly all original. I’m very skeptical, the white color is odd, it looks in too good of condition, but the skull does have texturing that made me think twice. Does this look legit, or should I be wary in case I win/before transferring money? The auction site is everyone’s favorite
