  1. The Mesozoic is an area that is sorely lacking in my collection. I don't know why, but I just never got around to collecting in it. I never fell in love with dinosaurs or mososaurs like a lot of other people. That was until fairly recently, when I finally took it upon myself to diversify my collection and get to know better my area's (and in some ways own backyard!) geology and paleontology. I set out to discover more about Maryland's Mesozoic Park. I guess it would be best to start off from the beginning. I started the journey not knowing what I'd find, but knowing w
  2. Last week I stumbled upon a deposit that might be yielding a bit more. Several bone fragments, a vertebrae (I think), lots of boney plate material, and a small tarsal bone. I have collected this area for years an never found as much in one spot as I did last week. Going back with proper tools for looking further. Wish me luck.

    Bull Canyon Theropod?

    Hi y'all, found this partial tooth in micromatrix from the Triassic-aged Bull Canyon formation. Serration density looks to be 9-10 / mm on the dc. Could it be dinosaurian?

    Triassic Cephalopods fro Epidaurs

    Hi Guys, I'm taking advantage of this period of staying at home to recheck and better identify the fossils from my collection. Someone can tell me the genus and species of these triassic fossils of Epidaurus. Thanks in advance and please stay home if you can !!
  6. Hello everyone! Been almost 2 years since I last visited that site and left in situ a nice multiblock. I was thinking again and again @taj reply and tried to correct that mistake. However, every year the site seems to be less accessible and there are rumors that it's forbidden to search there for fossils due to the proximity of the archeological site of the theater, regardless the fact the outcrop is located within private land. Nevertheless, last Saturday 13/11 we visited the place with a friend. Visited 3 possible outcrops without much results. 1. Carnian exposure

    Xinpusaurus sp., a Thalattosaur

    From the album: Vertebrates

    Not an Ichthyosaur but an unprepped Thalattosaurus (Xinpusaurus sp.) from the Falang Formation (Triassic) of Guiyang, in Guizhou, PRC. Xinpusaurus can be easily distinguished from an ichthyosaur like Mixosaurus by the extreme overbite: The upper jaw is almost twice as long as the lower jaw. Will need a lot of prep work. Length ~ 60cm

  10. Last week I had the chance to go for a short fossil hunting trip to the area called the Polish Jura – famous for limestone formations, which take several fantastic shapes and have their very own names. Here are some instances: The camel The Hercules club The Trolls It’s also the area with numerous stone castles from the 14th and 15th century – the are located along the so-called Trail of the Eagle's Nests Here are some examples: But my main interest were

    Found with Keichousaurus

    This piece is found along with Keichousaurus in Yunnan, China. That is, it’s Triassic. Any idea what is that? The “spines” measure about 10cm in length.

    Triassic fossil?

    Triassic scute, shell or paper weight? Found roadside with mixed road stones in NJ midway between Flemington and Lambertville Rt 202. This is part of the Newark supergroup sedimentary rock deposited during the Triassic period. I can't put this down because it feels biological not geological. All help greatly appreciated. My first post.

    I’ve moved up to the higher levels of my property where I’m finding bones and coprolites. Still hoping for a big score of a full skull.
  16. I got out again to gather a few small specimens of pet wood. Found in the Triassic of the Newark supergroup deposits in southeastern Pennsylvania.
  17. Hello! I am assisting a friend identifying this tooth. He found it in Anisian limestone and so far has not managed to find any further information, since there is not a single publication. The environment is marine, since there are shell imprints, without any shell preserved, so he assumes it belongs to a fish. Another friend said that it might even belong to a reptilian and the teeth have crushing form. It's size is around that of a dime, maybe slightly larger. Any help would be appreciated!

    Unknown triassic spine/bone

    Hi! I've recently acquired unidentified fossil. It's from triassic location in Silesia, Poland. Can you give me some ideas on ID?

  20. Bought this piece at a Rock and Mineral show and according to the specimen labels that were included with the specimen. It has passed through at least 3 different fossil dealers. Each one stating the following information: Crocodile Scapula Locality: San Juan, NM, (USA) Now I suspect this piece is from the Triassic time period and could possibly belong to a large Temnospondyl amphibian and is a skull fragment not a scapula. Does anyone here recognize the patterning and thickness change enough to give an educated guess as to what it might actually be from?

    Teeth and bones

    Hi, I was wondering if this could be a Pachystropheus bone? Although it is damaged, it looks similar to pictures of Pachystropheus femurs, could it be a femur? It measures 4.5cm. There's a tooth next to it, the closest possiblity I could find was Ichthyosaur, but I couldn't find anything that similar, so could this be an Ichthyosaur tooth? On the other side, there's some other things. I think the larger tooth could possibly be Severnichthys, and one slightly lower down to be Lissodus minimus I'd appreciate any help, Many thanks
