    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.

    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.

    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.
  6. 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.

    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

    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.

    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)
  12. 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.

    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.

    Possible crinoid?

    While searching for fossils on Jebel Hafeet (a mountain in Al Ain, Abu Dhabi, UAE) my mother saw this little fossil sticking out of the rock face. I immediately thought it looked like a crinoid, which was odd since I have never seen one before in this country... I carefully excavated it and brought it home. I think that the fossil is about miocene age, but I am not completely sure, the round things surrounding the fossil are nummulites.

    Large shell fossil ID help please

    Hello, I wondered if someone can help me identify some fossils I found, please? I am completely new to fossil hunting and don’t know very much at all yet. Yesterday I found 3 beautiful shell fossils half way up a mountain called Jebel Hafeet in the desert of Al Ain, United Arab Emirates, Middle East. Is it possible you could tell me anything about them please? I know the mountain used to be under the sea millions of years ago (the ocean was called the Tethys), so I’m guessing the shells were sea shells, not land shells. They are filled with lovely clear crystals. They also have very small cir

    Late Miocene Bone

    I found this fossil close to a known fossil site Hamra 1. Most of the fossils there are from late miocene. I have picked up crocodile scutes, fish bones, and many other things at the same location. People have found hyena bones, relatives of ostriches, bovids, and many other animals near the spot. The fossil itself has a few cracks in it that I did not see before removal, so some pieces where broken off. I picked up all the pieces I could see and glued them back on at home.

    Leg bone? Unusual UAE fossil

    I found this fossil today on a hill close to a beach called shipwreck beach in Ruwais, Abu Dhabi. I have not found anything quite like this before. Hope it can be identified. My geusse is leg bone, but it looks a lot like a jaw with no teeth. I'm no sure about the time period, most fossils here seem to be from miocene.

    Echinoid id

    Hello again, here is my most beautiful sand dollar fossil. We picked it up yesterday on a beach close to Ruwais, Abu Dhabi, UAE. I have found dozens of these, but rarely find one so flat. I would love to know the species name if possible.

    Large echinoid

    I found this echinoid fossil a few months ago. It is about 10cm long, I have only ever found two of these. It was found on a rocky beach in Abu Dhabi, UAE

    A big bone

    Hello again, I ffound this bone about 2 years ago close to Mugharaq Port, Ruwais, Abu Dhabi, UAE. It was found in a cliff inside of clay-like rock, it was barely acessable during high tide. It is more then 30cm long. The bone looks like it is made of clay, and was very fragile when i cleaned it, it is now less fragile and hardened. Any clues as to what it is? I think it is some sort of legbone. The town of ruwais used to be a savanna not so long ago, hope that helps.

    Mystery fossil

    Hello, I am only 13 but I have picked up a lot of fossils. I don't know what half of the fossils are. I hope you can help. I found this fossil on the Jebal Hafeet nountain in Al Ain, UAE. It is very small. I am curious as to what it is. It looks like some sort of coral. The area l found it in was known for its marine fossils. I also found several larger corals on the same mountain.
