  1. Edestus teeth

    From the album Sharks and fish

    The shark relative is genus of eugenodontia holocephalid from the Carboniferous-Pennsylvanian age Anna shale formation, Carbondale group, found in different Illinois coal mines. I dont know(yet)which mine these were found in. This unidentified species is of the "vorax-serratus- crenulatus-heinrichi" or "E. heinrichi group", with the teeth being more of a standard triangular shape, as opposed to being thinner and pointed at a forward angle as in the "E. minor" group http://www.thefossilforum.com/applications/core/interface/file/attachment.php?id=501751
  2. Mosasaur premaxillary bones

    From the album Marine reptiles and mammals

    2 unidentified mosasaur species' anterior end of premaxillary bones. One with teeth broken off just beyond the skull, and the other has 2 remaining teeth, with the rest broken off at the level of the skull. the larger fossil was found in the phosphate mines of Khouribga, Morocco. ive since lost the information for the smaller fossil, sadly.
  3. Raptor

    From the album Dinosaurs & flying reptiles

    Unidentified raptor fossil, likely clavicle, from kem kem, in Taouz, Morocco middle Cretaceous 100 mya
  4. Mini Mosasaur collection

    From the album Marine reptiles and mammals

    A little collection of assorted mosasaur fossils from 2 different places that I got when I first started collecting. 2 different types of vertebrae, one is mosasaur, and the other is a questionable claim of mosasaur, a corprolite that was claimed to be that of a mosasaur, a tooth, & 7 rib fragments. 2 ribs have predation marks, as well as the large vertebra. The large vert has a round tooth indent on the very center. The 2nd rib down has tooth scratches along the surfaces, & 3rd rib down has a round tooth indent in the center, which is probably what caused a strip across the middle to break off. There are 2 other tooth marks on that rib as well, forming a diagonal line from above left of the center indent, breaking off a piece along the top, to below right.
  5. Plesiosaur and pliosaur teeth

    From the album Marine reptiles and mammals

    Pliosaur teeth--liopleurodon ferox(?) & unidentified genera plesiosaur teeth--cryptoclidus sp & cryptoclidus sp (?) lower oxford clay callovian stage middle jurassic 160 mya peterborough, cambridge U.K. Hampton lakes & Bradley Fen.whittlesey
  6. I bought this in a market in Chiapas, Mexico. They told me that it was from San Juan Cancuc, Chiapas, Mexico and it was found underwater. I have no other info. I have noticed some line marks inside the tube.
  7. Unknown Kem Kem Beds, Teeth

    I have a few teeth here that i could you some help identifying! I'm thinking between a Crocodile or Raptor for the first tooth posted (includes photo of each side). The second photo contains multiple teeth that look to be from the same organism, however i have no clue as to what it could be. All of these teeth are from the Kem Kem Beds of Taouz, Morocco. The single (Crocodile/Raptor?) tooth is .53" (14 mm) long by .31" (8 mm) wide by .2" (5 mm) thick.
  8. I got this fossil as part of a collection I bought and so have no idea where it was found. I have attached pictures of both sides of it. It is roughly 6cm wide and has a depth of abouth 3cm. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  9. What fossil is this?

    I was looking at fossils for sale online when I saw this slate for sale. It's about 25 cm and I can't recognize what fossil this is. All I know is that it's from the Cretaceous in Latin America. Any ideas as to what it can be? Regards
  10. Unidentified Vertebra, Manatee?

    So, I bought this vertebra at a thrift store awhile back, the owner claimed it was found in one of many underwater dives where he would regularly receive fossils from. I'm not sure as to the exact location unfortunately or I would provide more info; with that being said, I don't expect a clear ID. It was definitely found in Florida the owner also said he thought it was a Manatee, but his memory was failing him as he also said which is why I've asked for an ID in the first place. Here are some photos I took, if some more are needed I will try to add more relatively soon. Thanks in advance!
  11. Unidentified bone

    From the album Holzmaden

    A 10 cm long unidentified bone from the lower Jurassic from Holzmaden. I think that its a part of a rib, but I am not sure.
  12. Found this in 2012 at a location in Santa Monica Mountains. Size is roughly an inch. No other fossils could be found there. First two pictures are after removing the covering sandstone. Third picture is before. Fourth is a closer shot of the road cut that I did in 2012. Thanks for any help! Os
  13. Hi there, I'm new to the fossil forum, and was hoping I could get help in identifying this jaw. It was found in Marmarth, North Dakota in the Hell Creek Formation. I don't have any more specifics on location besides that. I hope the pictures are detailed enough, but if not, I can post more. I am thinking it has to be some kind of fish, but I am not completely sure. Any direction or help would be wonderful! Thank you so much!
  14. Unidentified fossil bone

    I would like to have some help to identify this fossil. I know that it is fossilized, and I am pretty sure that it is a mammal femur, but I would like to find out what mammal and if it is for sure a femur. It was found in Northeast Oklahoma, and I am adding as many pics as I can with scale. So thanks for all the help that you can give.
  15. Eagle Ford Flags Shark/Fish Tooth?

    My wife and I uncovered this possible shark/fish tooth on 12/3/2017 from basal Bouldin Flags weathered shell hash. It appears to be a broken tip of a very large Scapanorhynchus texanus. Although, I am not certain. There appears to be coarse striations from bottom to near the top of the fossil and very little bend in the fossil structure. It is very symmetrical and about 9 mm wide at base and 27 mm long from a slightly worn tip to the broken end. Pics are of three sides. Is there another possibility?
  16. Unidentified jurassic find

    Hi, Everyone. This is something I picked up at Runswick Bay on Yorkshires Jurassic coast. The curve looks organic but I suspect that it may be a geological nodule. Any comments would be welcome.
  17. Please help me identify

    Hi, I found this specimen in a place I usually find ammonites, nautilus and sea shell. I'm not sure what this is, even not if this is actually a fossil... The matrix, and the outer part of the specimen itself is limestone while its interior is flint. I tried to carefully remove some of the matrix using a cp engraving pen... but the more I uncover it the less I understand what it is I'm looking at... and I'm really curious :-) I've attached a colleague image with pictures I took from different angles... Anyone has an idea? I'd like to hear from you! Thanks...
  18. I found this fossil around 4 years ago in a creek in West Virginia. I'm curious to know if it is possible to determine the time period when this fossil might have formed, the possible creature it might have been, and just more about it in general. The fossil is composed of a very deeply embedded scale pattern that is about 2.5 inches in diameter. Only about 1/2 of the fossil is very visible, and the fossil is in a layered black rock. The fossil appears as though it is long, like a snake would have been, but unfortunately I only have a small portion of the original fossil, so it's hard to tell. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
  19. Any Idea What These Are?

    My 8 year old son is turning into quite the dinosaur enthusiast and has begun to collect fossils. We are slowly learning the risks and joys of collecting. We found these three over the weekend. Any ideas what they may be? I was told the sandy orange bone may or may not be a dinosaur bone and the darker ones are from the Ice Age but they were not sure from which Ice Age animal.
  20. Big brook nj help please

    Found many teeth at Big brook nj. Lots of fun. I'm new to this. Any help would be appreciated. I think all the done shaped objects are just rocks but I thought I'd pass it by the forum. The object that looks like a seed is fossilized it is not modern can't scratch it, doesn't burn. Thanks in in advance. Jason. If you'd like more pics just let me know
  21. Bone unidentified

    From the album Albian vertebrates of Ukraine

    Strangely shaped bone. Typical porous structure is seen on the picture.
  22. Odds and ends

    Hi y'all. I'm new here, so I hope I'm doing this right. I have a bunch of found artifacts that interest me. Most were found near Myrtle Beach or Edisto Beach, SC. Help identify? Mike
