    Fish tail and something? SD

    Pieces that came from area of Pierre shale SD. Tail is 8in. Unknown corn cob looking piece is 4in. 2 small pieces look to be ribs and organic material. All not cleaned. Rest of fish looks to be in the ground but hard to get. What fish might it be and what parts are they? Thanks.
  2. This is the last batch of some unidentified fossils that I picked up in an auction - they accompanied a massive whale vertebrae which was the main lot. The other items were teeth (likely Moroccan Cretaceous) and two claws that turned out to be casts. 1 & 2 - two socket bones that I don’t know the physiology of, the larger is about 4” long and 770g 3 - a vertebrae, 750g 4 - a horn-like piece that may or may not be a fossil, the material is such that I can’t see bone or keratin structure 5 - an small, odd-shaped bone fossil 6 - a long vertebrae, very ferrous
  3. This is a much more recent acquisition that I picked up at an estate auction of a fossil collector that was identified as a Stegosaurus back plate. My own research has led me to conclude by the shape that if it is a Stegosaurus plate, it is back tail plate that would have been near the spikes. I have no concerns that the other fossils I picked up at the auction are genuine and were correctly identified. However given just the rarity of stegosaurus fossils, I think it’s probably not one and it was wishful thinking on the original collectors part. What do you think? For all

    Permian trilobite

    This trilobite tail was identified as Ditomopyge and Permian in age. It's from the Saddle Creek Limestone in Texas. I'm curious if it is Permian an age or if it is an early time period.

    Ocean Life? Tail? Curious what this is...

    Hoping for help with the ID of what is believed to be a ocean life fossil in sandstone. My keen 8 year old found this over the weekend along the base of a sandstone bank. General location is Bay of Fundy, New Brunswick, Canada. Thanks

    Amber Inclusion

    I found this amber inclusion for sale, and my first impression is that it looks like some kind of mammal tail. Maybe it's a plant?

    Hypsognathus Tail?

    Hello everyone! I have a somewhat interesting piece I’m trying to find more information about. I purchased this from an extremely reputable dealer in my location. Everything I have purchased from him has always been top tier. This specific piece though we do not know much about. Only where they found it. It was found in Wyoming in the Green River Shale. His collector identified it as a hypsognathus tail. The problem I’m coming across is I have had an extremely hard time finding much information about this creature and have failed to find many pictures of fossils from them. If anyone has any in
  9. What is this thing? It appears to be some vegetation or a tail of some sort. Could anyone help identify it?

    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
  11. 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
  12. 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!

    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?
  24. 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.
