    Turtle Prep

    I’ve been out of the prep lab for a week with an illness that knocked me on my rear. Yesterday, I got back in the lab and got to work on the initial prep on a large turtle from the Green River Formation. This beast is about 5’ long and came from the Mini Fish Layer. The matrix is a bit sticky but the bone quality is exceptional. It was found with a skidsteer while clearing loose rock at the start of last season, so it’s in multiple pieces. That makes it a more manageable prep but it would have been cool in one piece! This little guy is going to take me several months to complete.

    Turtle shell fragment ID?

    I recently found this turtle shell fragment in a Plio-Pleistocene shell and limestone deposit in South Florida. It has more detail than many pieces that I find and although it might be a shot in the dark, maybe someone with more expertise than I, can identify from which type of turtle? Thanks Mike

    Cretaceous Bone find from sweden

    Hello Everyone. I’m new to this forum, but love it already. I have found a 7cm symmetrical Bone in a Cretaceous location in sweden. I have had two different experts look at the pictures, and they had different opinions based on the pictures. I will meet with on of the, the local paleontologist after the summer and show it to him IRL. But if anyone have any ideas I would love to hear them. The area it was found at was a beach at the Time of the deposit and both landliving tetrapods aswell as ocean living reptiles has been found here. Thanks in advance
  4. This has me stumped, Its fram Java Indonesia, it came in a lot with some small shark teeth, fish teeth and sting ray barb... i assume its fish related? looks like to small tusk like pertrusions, other guess was turtle related, would be great to hear from anyone thats seen anything like this before. Thanks
  5. Hi all! Went on another expedition to flag ponds in Calvert MD the other day, had probably one of my best hunts so far in the formation. in total I found 112 teeth, 51 shark, 59 ray, 2 bony fish. I yelled in excitement when I found this one in the shell bed, blending into the grays. There's only two things this tooth could belong to and one of them is a shark I have been hunting for years. I am leaning towards Meg in my ID, as the break line seems to go across the middle where the chevron would be, in addition to the profile of the tooth is girthier than the hastalis I h

    Toebones and Earbones

    I was out again with a good friend. He has a huge garden and gifts me vegetables from time to time. Yesterday he gave a one of his earliest perfectly ripe Cantaloupes. We had some for breakfast... sweet and delicious. Once again, I saw @PODIGGER at the launch point. to discuss finds, but I left early. It was a day of few finds. Some broken Megs, a few Hemis, but I like tigers, and I did get a contortus. Some turtle, which I do not normally keep, in the center a chunk of a Capybara m3, an earbone which was my find of the day (I will separate to another fossil ID

    Texas Coast Pleistocene

    I am on the Texas Coast for the second time this year!! My husband and I stayed in the Tarpon Inn in Port Aransas for New Years, just for a couple of days and now, this week, my parents rented a house in Port A so I am here for the Second time in 2022....more beach time in the last two weeks than the last two years!! I love the Texas Coast in the winter. Right now it is 74 degrees and I'm hanging out under the tiki cabana writing this. Tomorrow will be cool and possibly rainy, so I am getting my fossil (and shell) hunting in today. So, as for the fossils. They may not seem like m

    Crocodilian, Turtle, or Both?

    I recently acquired a bunch of matrix from the Cloverly Formation of Carbon County, Montana. And came across a few scutes. I’m not fully sure if they are turtle, crocodile, or maybe both, which is why I thought I’d share them here.

    Bony Oddities of the Ozan

    Following the brief rains from earlier in the week, I decided to make a return to my new favorite Ozan outcrop where I had previously found so many mosasaur vertebrae. Though I did not get to add any new verts to my collection, I did manage to come across plenty of unique fossils and artifacts that have taken up my attention for the past couple of days. One interesting thing I have noticed from this outcrop is its abundance of pyritic bony material among other pyritic fossils (including "rusty" exogyra shells + bivalves). Most of them are unidentifiable chunks, but a few have enough distinctiv

    Bone marine late cretaceous

    Found a piece of a small bone from the Severn Formation, Late Cretaceous, Maryland. This is an area where I have found abundant turtle shell, shark teeth, enchodus, and occasional mosasaur fossils. Not sure if this piece can be identified. I was thinking turtle but it seems kind of gracile at the broken end. All help will be very welcome.

    Peace River Find

    When I hunt the river I always try to do a walk around of the area where I plan on working for the day. I have found numerous nice fossils this way that are just sitting on the riverbed waiting to be picked up. About 4 weeks ago, as I did a morning walk around I spotted some very white looking bone material in very shallow water. Upon picking it up I believed I had two nice size pieces of modern turtle plastron. I didn't see anything else in the immediate area and went about my search for fossils. I decided to take the bone material home and later came to the conclusion they were turtle pl
  12. Hi all My son and I were going through our unsorted fossils, and we came upon two vertebrae from the North Sulphur River in Texas that appear similar in shape though differ in size. Both have one vertebral face that is convex while the opposite side is concave. I've read that this type of ball-and-socket joint can be found in both turtles and mosasaurs. What do you all think? Any help is greatly appreciated. Bret

    50 minute fossil hunt

    Today we went to a great spot we don't go often. The first 50 minutes were great, then it started raining,I can't imagine what I would have found if I got to stay a good 3 hours. We got two gator osteoderms, including the smallest one I've ever seen (below the large one) some gator teeth. Multiple mammal teeth (follow link below message to get to the ID message) horse frags, gar scales, turtle shell, and other weird fossils. Again, please go to the ID chat just to check if you can help.

    Dredge IDs

    Today we took a trip down to a dredge and had probably our second best trip, we came out with quite a few fossils that we could not identify, I was wondering if anyone could help? Ones a vert from a large fish, probably a drum, but I was wondering if someone could clarify that. Another is a bone that looks nearly complete, probably from a whale, but I am not certain and it looks distinct, and I was hoping someone would know the specifics. Also we got a price of what I am pretty sure is turtle plastron and a gator vert. And the best find was some sort of canine. I'm not sure what it is, I do no

    Soft shell turtle?

    Hi Everyone. Found this pretty thick piece today in the surf - southern NC beach. Most of the soft shell turtle pieces I’ve found are much thinner - this is at least 1.2cm or .5” thick in the middle and then tapering to the sides…. Do you believe this is a soft shell turtle fragment?

    First Fossil Hunt at the Brazos

    I've had some free time this weekend, so I decided to mix things up and try hunting the Brazos instead of the usual cretaceous formations around Austin and DFW. The Pleistocene period is something I've always been fascinated by (probably due to the Ice Age movies), so the long drive wasn't enough to dissuade me. The weather was just right which made a day by the river all the better. This being my first time at the Brazos, I was a bit unfamiliar with the geography/prime hunting locations. I settled on parking by a bridge and decided to spend my day checking out both sides of the river. Navigat

    Peace River Visit

    Got back out to the Peace River, FL yesterday. I usually try and get there by 0800 AM but with the cold overnight temperatures this week I delayed my start time until closer to 0900 AM to let the sun rise and warm things up a bit. I was glad I did so as I found the sun high enough to be warming up the spot I had targeted for the day. The morning was mostly a lot of the usual small miscellaneous shark teeth. I did find one small, and I mean small, alligator tooth. A partial small shark vert also turned up. Rounding out the morning were several nice Hemis, upper and lower, a nice size part
  19. A few months ago Ken @digit, had a post looking for Florida turtle specimens for a Flmnh project. A week later I went to the Peace and found this Apalone softshell. I hoping Ken post requests for a carnivore project next. After the Tampa Club fossil show this guy's new home will be at FLMNH. I also have quite a few vertebrae to prep as soon as I find some time.

    A bone

    http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/82717-kem-kem-bone/ This link above has an interesting picture of an Alligator shoulder blade, that I thought a little similar. Not broken, a lot of detail... How come this one is difficult? ....

    Turtle shell?

  23. Maybe this is turtle shell, but the marking on it made me wonder if it’s some thing else. ideas? found Myrtle Beach, 2022 thanks! Paula
  24. Decided to go for a hunt yesterday after my Saturday plans were canceled due to two flat tires. The weather report had it as a cold day to start with an expected warm up y midday. When I got to the river at a little before 8:00 am the temperature was 40* F with a light breeze. Got the kayak set to go then donned my wetsuit with a jacket style life preserver over it to block the wind. Even then I also put on a hooded sweatshirt and gloves for the paddle to my hunting site. As I approached the area I planned to search for the day I stopped to take a few photos of the sun rising over the riv
