    Fossil fish tail?

    Hi all, I found this today in Charleston, SC. Is this a fossilized fish tail? Any other info on it? Not sure how rare it is but it’s the first I’ve come across. It’s only about an inch long
  2. Hi, I am interested in this. Sold here, seller says its ok to have a second pair of eyes look it over. From Holzmaden. Slab is 50cm. Jaw is 14cm. Seller thinks jaw has been added. My main concern is have the vertebra been added too? Thanks
  3. Hi Everyone, I've been working through quite a bit of shale from the Stark member and have a specimen I would like your thoughts on. My brain sees a crustacean claw due to the shape, but I think its more likely that it's a fin. What do ya'll think I have here? Dimensions are 1 cm by 1 cm. My "holding the phone camera to my microscope lens" method isn't working so well, so here's a rough outline of the shape: And the counterpart from the split Thanks,

    Shrimp tail?

    Hi, I found this yesterday in the Bois Blanc Formation, and am wondering if it could be a shrimp tail. It looks very similar! Thank you!

    Spinosaurus tail

    Ordovician Tail?

    I found this several years ago in Kentucky near Maysville, which, based on this map, is in the middle to upper ordovician. It was probably around 50 feet down. All I have is the tail. Probably not enough to identify, but any information would be appreciated. I couldn't find a measuring device, but I will post a picture with one as soon as I do. It is about 8 1/2 inches long, or 26 1/2 centimeters. Map is upside down. I have the fossil on hand for any clarification/questions.

    Spinosaur Caudal Vertebra

    A distal caudal vertebra of a Spinosaurid. What's slightly unusual about this vertebra is that it's slightly more slender than most Spinosaurid caudal vertebrae, which have a more square shaped centrum as seen from the lateral side. I am currently uncertain whether this is individual variation or that it might be taxonomically significant.

    Vertebrae fossil ID help

    Was looking for some input and ideas on what this would belong to. Not much information available and the pictures are not the best. But even your “best guess” is appreciated. The entire specimen is about 3 feet in length. The possible collection location is guessed to be around the Milk River area in Canada close to the Montana border. That’s all I have available to me. So please let me know your thoughts. Thank you.

    Composite tail

    I bought this cool composite amphibian/dinosaur tail from a forum member. He does not remember the species or location for these vertebrae. I am thinking they might be Apachesaurus sp. as I have seen similar composite tails for sale. Any idea how I can identify the species?
  15. I found this neat enchodus tail online for not much $. I'm fairly certain it's real, but I'm posting this in the Is It Real? Forum because I feel like this may be a composit. I drew a line where I think two pieces were composited to form a complete tail. Any ideas? The piece is 7 x 8 inches.

    Abelisauroid Vertebra

    A distal caudal vertebra of a theropod dinosaur. This vertebra is quite similar to Masiakasaurus from Madagaskar. So I've labeled this as cf. Abelisauroidea. There have been some reports that there are Noasaurids in the Kem Kem beds, so that might be a more specific possible identification. However at the moment just not enough is known about the Kem Kem fauna.
  17. As I was putting together labels with photos containing microscopic images of inclusions in coprolites, I came across something that I may have misidentified as a fish tail and vertebrae in a very small coprolite. After looking at it again, the tail looks more like a shrimp or crawfish tail than that of a fish. What I thought were fish vertebrae, look more like crustacean arm joints/elements. Can anyone please confirm this for me? Thanks a bunch! Formation: Oxford Clay (Jurassic - Callovian) Location: Orton Pit, near Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, England

    Cave Fossils?

  19. "The tail of a feathered dinosaur has been found perfectly preserved in amber from Myanmar. The stunning discovery helps put flesh on the bones of these extinct creatures, opening a new window on the biology of a group that dominated Earth for more than 160 million years. Examination of the specimen suggests the tail was chestnut brown on top and white on its underside." http://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-38224564

    Merritt Island Matrix - Fused tail?

    I was digging around in Sacha's wonderful Merritt Island matrix the other day and found this. First let me apologize for the fuzziness of some of the images. My curiosity over-road my patience. Because of the ball and socket, I'm thinking this is a salamander caudal vertebra? If that is correct, would this be a vertebra that would break in an effort to avoid predators? Or could this be where the tail grew back? Mind you, these are just guesses. Perhaps it's not even from a salamander. I will try to get better photos, but this little bugger is so small, I'm having a hard time getting clear imag

    ID tail bones (I think) + misc bones

    My family stumbled across quite a few pieces of fossilized bone over the weekend in Southeast Wyoming. We counted 40+ pieces that are between 2-6” in height and oval in shape. They were spread out over an area approx 40’ wide. We also found what might be a tooth along with sereral other unidentifiable pieces. This was a very exciting find for us and I would love to learn more about what (or who) we found! Please let me know if you need additional photographs or any other info.

    Weird Kem Kem Vertebra

    I bought this vertebra a while back from our favourite auction site. Initially I bought it just because it looked like a nice vertebra, and I didn't think much of it. But when I had the real fossil in my hands I noticed that it's quite bizarre. I've never seen anything like it. So far everyone I've asked was stumped as well (though some suggested it might be croc). So I was wondering if someone here maybe had an idea. @Troodon maybe? It's a fairly nice centrum of a caudal vertebra, as the bottom does show some worn articulation surfaces for a chevron. And even though the
  25. Distal caudal vertebra of a Spinosaur. This is from the very end of the tail. It's position is likely close to vertebra 40. The neural canal is quite wide and the centrum is laterally pinched in the middle.
