  1. Hello, I found these a while ago on Jebel Jais (part of the Hajar mountain range) in Ras al Khaimah, United Arab Emirates. I can't find much information on age... I am writing something about the fossils of the UAE, but I don't have much to say about these fossils, as I do not know what most of them are! Any information will be helpful. I have found solitary coral, like this one, at the location before.

    UAE Steinkerns

    Do you think it would be possible to id these steinkerns? I would like to get a bit more specific than "gastropods". They come from Al Ain (an Emirate in the United Arab Emirates) close to Jebel Hafeet and are Eocene to Miocene in age. These two shells have little bumps as well as lines running along the outside. This shell has two rows of bumps running along the outside. This steinkern is still in its matrix, you can see the shell had short spines on the exterior. This one looks like a spondylus shell

    UAE urchins

    Here are some eocene to miocene age urchins I found in Al Ain (part of the United Arab Emirates) near Jebel Hafeet. I would appreciate any id's. Some urchins might be a bit too far gone to identify. (underside)

    UAE Crab

    Hello. Do you guys think I can prep this crab from Al Ain (part of the United Arab Emirates)? It looks pretty beaten up, but I am hoping the ventral side might still be there. I have tried preparing urchins in this matrix with a very diluted water-vinegar solution. Do you think this could work for the crab as well?

    Shark Tooth from UAE

    Hello again. I am extremely excited by this find. A shark tooth found the middle of nowhere! This tooth comes from Al Ain (an Emirate of the United Arab Emirates) close to Jebel Hafeet. I think it's Miocene in age. There are tons of nummulites in the rocks of this location, as well as schizaster urchins.

    Conoclypus species?

    Hi, I will be posting a lot of my finds here. I would like to know if I could get a species identification for this conoclypus urchin. It comes from the miocene (I think so because it has nummulites in it) of Al Ain, close to Jebel Hafeet. It's the largest, and most complete one I could find. Unfortunately the bottom is completely gone, still one of my best finds though!

    Not a coprolite?

    Hello, I found this fossil (at least I think that's what it is) in Ruwais, Abu Dhabi, UAE (United Arab Emirates). It is Miocene in age. I showed it to Dr. Mark Beech, the head of archaeology of the region, and he wasn't quite sure, but he told me he doesn't think it's coprolite. Hope you can make sense of this for me!
  8. I recently found a bunch of eocene urchins near Jebel Hafeet in Al Ain, United Arab Emirates. Most of them are a peculiar orange colour. The trouble comes when trying to expose the hidden parts of the urchin. When I remove the matrix, I don't see the orange color anymore. There's a grey layer that covers the fossil, which looks exactly like the fossil, but it's on top of the fossil. The matrix pops off of this layer. I don't know how to prepare this. Many of the urchins are only about as thick as a folded piece of paper, so I don't want to mess around too much with vinegar. A

    A type of conoclypus?

    Hello, I picked this fossil up on Jebel Hafeet, Al Ain, UAE (United Arab Emirates). I think it's from the Cretaceous, however, I am not so sure. It is unfortunately very worn and eroded, but it is still the only one I have of its kind. The fossil itself it filled with small numulites. I saw a picture the other day of a conoclypus echinoid, and it looked quite similar to what I have. I figured you guys would be able to confirm whether it is or not. I also drew a picture of what I imagine it would look like whole.

    Scale from Al Ain

    Hello, I found this in Al Ain, United Arab Emirates after breaking open a soft limestone rock. I assume it's eocene in age. The orange color immediately grabbed my attention. I took some photos of it using my microscope and spotted a second, similar object opposite the first. I scraped a bit of the matrix off to reveal more of the second one.

    Egg or tooth?

    Hello! I found this very odd fossil while scratching on Jebel Hafeet, Al Ain, United Arab Emirates. I came across it while brushing sand off of a layer of compacted sand. The fossils are eocene in age. I have found many urchins in the same location (including Schizaster and Echinolampas ovalis?). At first I thought it might be a tooth, since the exposed side looked similar to the backside of a crocodile's tooth, but upon further inspection I noticed that the fossil had a thin, asymmetric covering. This made it look more like an unpopped popcorn kernel. I hope you'll be able to

    Stegotetrabelodon tooth?

    Hello, can anyone tell me if this is from a Stegotetrabelodon, or similar animal? It is around miocene age, found in Ruwais, Abu Dhabi. It is about 12cm long, unfortunately it is very brittle, I will work on it a bit in the future. I googled "Stegotetrabelodon" since it was listed as a known species in the area, but the images aren't quite similar to my tooth. Hope you guys can clear this up for me.

    Echinometra mathaei?

    Hello, I recently picked up these fossil sea urchins. I think they're miocene in age. I'm not quite sure if these are different types of urchins, or if they are just in different stages of weathering. I put a modern "burrowing urchin" next to the largest one as a comparison. Found in Ruwais, Abu Dhabi, UAE (United Arab Emirates) on a beach with dredged materials on it.

    Sharjah UAE

    Can Anyone identify these fossils? Are these all gastropods? We found them in the Sharjah desert.

    Gazelle leg bone?

    Hello, I found this fossil today. It was scattered into a few pieces, but I managed to collect most of them, and glue them together. It is one of the most complete fossils I have. It is Miocene in age and was found in Ruwais, Abu Dhabi, UAE (United Arab Emirates). My guess is that it's some sort of leg bone of either a gazelle or a jackal.
  16. Hello, I found this piece of bone in Ruwais, Abu Dhabi, UAE (United Arab Emirates). I have found many crocodile scutes in the area, which are Miocene in age. I was wondering if this bone was a piece of crocodile skull or jaw. It has some very weird holes, which reminded me of the crocodile osteoderms. I talked to a zooarcheologist who specialises in fossils in my area before I picked up the fossil, he said that they do find bones with worm borings in them, so I am not sure on what this is.

    Big bivalve?

    Hello, I found this fossil on Jebel Hafeet, Al Ain, UAE (United Arab Emirates). There are many numulites in and around this fossil (Eocene to Miocene). It appears to be some sort of bivalve, it was difficult to capture the shape, I hope you guys can make something of it.
  18. MrBones

    Unknown tooth

    Hello, I found this tooth a while ago. I assume it's from some kind of herbivore, but I am not sure. From the Miocene of Ruwais, Abu Dhabi, UAE
  19. MrBones

    Fish/lizard jaws?

    Hello, I would like to know whether these jaws belong to reptiles or fish. I've had a look at catfish jaws, but they aren't similar at all. I've also had a look at uromastyx jaws, but they also aren't similar. I don't know what else they could be. From Miocene of Ruwais, Abu Dhabi, UAE.

    Zebra incisor?

    Hello again, I found this tooth today, it instantly reminded me of zebras' front teeth, but I could like some confirmation. It's from the Miocene era, found in Ruwais, Abu Dhabi, UAE.
  21. MrBones

    Caudal vertebra of some sort?

    Hello, I picked this strange bone up today, at first I thought it was just a tortoise bone, but after I cleaned it a bit I noticed how semetrical the sides where, and it looked more like a vertebra. I carefully cleaned out a hole that led straight through the bone. (Sorry for the bad lighting)
  22. MrBones


    Hello, I recently went on a trip to Ras al Khaimah. On our trip we visited Jebel al Jais (the highest mountain in the UAE), and I found these fossils jutting out of this rock. I thought they looked like some sort of coral, but I am not entirely sure. I would like to know what you guys think.

    Bone fragments

    Hello all, I found these bone fragments all on one spot in Ruwais, Abu Dabi, UAE. I think the third one from left to right is a vertebra of some sort, but I am not sure to whom it belongs. I think the age is late miocene, and it used to be a swampy savanna environment. I have found crocodile teeth, fish bones, turtle and tortoise shell fragments, and an antelope tooth at the same location.

    Crocodile scute? And more

    Hello again. After I discovered a big fossilized bone on a hill close the Shipwerck beach in Ruwais, I decided to go searching in the same area for more fossils. I found all of these on relatively the same layer of the hill. I assume they are from the miocene. The first one looks like a crocodile scute. The second one looks like a shell from a tortoise. The third one I am not sure of. I would appreciate confirmation and a possible id. I know UAE fossils can be a bit tricky.
  25. MrBones

    Hyena tooth fragment?

    I found this tooth fragment in Abu Dhabi, UAE. It looks to be a tooth from a carnivore, sabre-toothed tigers, and two types of hyenas that are known to have lived here in the Miocene.
