  1. I made a quick trip yesterday back to the Ellis County creek where I found so many teeth. With all the work being done to deer stands and feeders near it last time I was there, I knew my days of being able to hunt it this year were numbered, and sure enough, I have been officially banned by the landowner whose pasture I must cross to get to the creek, until at least next February. I knew my two best micro-spots in the creek were pretty much played out until we get floods and erosion, but I figured I might spend some time searching the gravel bars in the creek, and walk a little fu
  2. Got back to the Peace River Fl yesterday. When I set off in the kayak at 0820 am it was breezy and a chilly 53* F. The wetsuit was definitely needed if I was going to stand in the river all day. The water was crystal clear and with the sun out it made for a beautiful day. I took some photos after the sun had risen enough to clear the overhanging trees and light up the water. I got back to the gravel bed I have been working on my last few visits and found it undisturbed. Its not off the beaten path and with the water so clear I had feared others might have not
  3. Whilst walking on sheppey yesterday I found a good size crocodile vert in a phosphatic nodule. I'd love for it to be prepped professionally, I don't think me trying with hand tools and limited know how will end well. It is one of my first larger finds so I'd love for it to look as nice as possible. Are there any preparators or prep services you would recommend for sheppey fossils that may work with this? I understand this will not be the most aesthetic or easy prep job, as is often the case for sheppey finds, but it means alot to me. The nodule is a bit worn, but soft enou

    Hell Creek Crocodylomorph Vertebra

    Anyone familiar enough with the Crocodylomorphs from the Hell Creek Formation to be able to help in determining a probable genus or species? I purchased this specimen and have been unable to find images or research papers with similar examples.

    Vertebra

    Found on a gravel bar in a creek that runs through Cretaceous, Eagle Ford formation in the area near DFW airport Texas. I'm thinking caudal vertebra. Any ideas ?
  6. I'd gotten an Edmontosaurus caudal vertebra from @Troodon and had decided to prepare it a bit. I had used water to soften the matrix and a metal pick. Here are the before and after pictures. Before And after Also, does anyone have any tips on how to prepare hell creek fm fossils because I just wet the matrix and basically scooped it out.
  7. Hi again! If you saw my thread from yesterday, you'll know I bought some Moroccan fossils for dirt cheap that turned out to be pretty nice. I went to the same dealer today and bought three more for the same price. I suppose I will start with the worst (most suspicious) first: I saw this vertebra and liked how it looked, so I bought it. I'm totally fine with spending $20 for a vert recreation, too, so no big deal if it's fake. What makes me suspicious is the place where it's chipped, it looked like there was paint flaking off. I guess I'm asking, how much of it is real and what is i

    Rebbachisaurus vert

    Hello everyone, i have a question concerning Rebbachisaurus vert. I saw a huge Kem Kem vert in the Troodon’s collection that he refered to a dorsal Rebbachisaurus vert, the problem is about this identification. I can’t find any other vert like this in rebbachisaurid papers, particularly about Rebbachisaurus who show great difference about the morphology of the neural process and the centrum. I don’t see any pleurocoel on the centrum of the troodon’s vert and the neural spine is laterally flat with a strange « granular plate » on the anterior surface. I think about two possibilities : m

    North Sulphur River Trip

    Pictures from my latest NSR trip. Some mosasaur verts and bones, a jaw, ammonites, baculites, and of course the normal array of oddities. No really good verts but still fun. Does anyone know what jaw this would have come from? Also the turtle looking shell and the large white bone next to it feel a lot heavier than recent bone to me so maybe Pleistocene. Ill send a few close ups of those and of the crazier stuff later.

    Small ornithopod/parkosaur vert?

    Hello, this vert is from Two Medicine formation. 5 x 3.7 cm. Seller doesn't know exact species. Just small ornithopod or parkosaur. It's a nice little fossil in matrix so if it isn't croc or anything, I will add to the buy list. Thanks for the help!

    Horse, of course?

    Dear Fossil Forum, We have continued to visit the Brazos near Houston, and it has turned up horse. Teeth, a proximal phalange, and what I think is actually not horse, but a tapir calcaneus! My latest find is a vertebra, and it looks like thoracic vertebra 18 (T18). But, in comparing it to a photo of a modern horse example, the facet for rib attachment is smaller in proportion, and lots of other details look a little different as well. Does anyone know of good resources for researching fossil horse ancestor vertebrae? Or know if there is variation in contemporary vert s

    North Sulphur River Finds

    I took a trip to the NSR in early February and here are my finds. All of the bones in picture 2 as well as the closeups, I'm assuming mosasaur, were found on the surface but all with in about 10 yards of each other. They were on the other side of the river from the large cliff face so they wouldn't have fallen out of the matrix from it. It was a remote large creek area so could have just been revealed from the ground slowly over time and no one found them until I came across it. The bones themselves were also different from other mosasaur im used to finding. They had a reddish tent to them and
  16. After my last NSR trip, and finding a mosasaur vert, I felt like I was getting a better eye for NRS fossils. I have always heard the feeder creeks can be productive however I have searched in several never found anything in them. Now that I had more confidence I went to a more remote bridge and went for the first feeder creek I could find. It turned out to be decently productive with several more verts, none in particularly great condition though, and a jaw section. I think there is a coprolite in there too, pictures 14 and 15 maybe? I think my favorite find of all was the artifact though.

    Peace River Adventure

    Got back to the Peace River yesterday for what turned out to be a beautiful day with a variety of finds and new friends. On arrival at the river a little before 8 am the temperature was a balmy 48*F. The temperature was projected to rise into the mid 70's but I started out the day in my wetsuit and dive boots with hoodie overall to combat the early morning chill. I usually hunt north of Payne Creek State Park but decided to go south today where Megalodon teeth are more easily found. I haven't targeted the big shark teeth since last spring. I returned to the area where I found m

    Unusual vert, any ideas?

    Not sure what this is, but I don’t believe it to be dinosaur. It’s roughly 9” long and 4” at the widest point. Supposed to be Cretaceous. I don’t have any more information at this time about it. Just curious on what the group thinks.
  19. This is a Florida beach fossil from near Fort Pierce. The cap is about 13/16 inches long. Thanks for your help.

    Fossil? Vert

    Hi all, I found this bone on the beach today and wanted your guys thoughts. I really didn’t think it was fossilized, but I did the burn test anyway to be sure, and there is no burning hair smell. What are your guys thoughts? It was found in New Jersey, on a beach where I have found a couple shark teeth(4 or 5) including a Great White and a couple sand tigers. I think it’s a worn vertebrae, but I don’t know beyond that. When I get home I can get measurements, but I’d guess ~1-1.5” by ~1”. @Praefectus @Al Dente @MarcoSr @Darktooth @hokietech96 @Trevor @frankh8147

    Unknown vertebra from New Mexico

    Hi all, I'm considering buying this vertebra, but I want too know what age it is & how old it is. it was Quay, New Mexico, and is supposed too be a fossil. Unfortunately there aren’t anymore pics or a size, but too me it almost looks like Zarafasaura, but I don’t know if that species is found in New Mexico, or even the US. TIA

    Theropod vert

    Hello, if anyone can take a look at this, that would be great. I know most from Abington I've posted have turned out to be plesiosaur, but hooefully this is as described and is preserved enough to get an id. And is easier to identify being sold as theropod rather than sauropod Theropod/carnosaur vert Abingdon, Oxfordshire, Jurassic 11cm x 9.5 x 5.3 Many thanks

    Hot Texas Creek Hunt!

    I hunted a remote stretch in Northeast Texas and found a nice variety of items. The vert is from a good size mosasaur. The sawfish teeth always seem to be broken. I found some small shark teeth and a piece of cretaceous turtle shell. The bottles are from the 1930's and 1940's. I really like the Groves Tasteless Chill Tonic bottle. I posted a little info on the old bottles. We saw at least twenty wild hogs in one pack crossing the creek and one giant solo wild boar.
  24. Hi all, I'm hoping some of the resident experts here can help confirm or correct my IDs of the three fossil shark teeth and what I believe is a cetacean lumbar vert shown in the pictures below. I found these recently on a beach along the Calvert Cliffs in Maryland (Miocene exposure). Thanks for your help! For the shark teeth, I believe the the two on the left are both Carcharodon hastalis (though am more confident in my ID for #1) while the one on the right is possibly Isurus oxyrinchus though may also be Carcharias sp. All three have worn roots so I realize that may complicate the
  25. I kayaked for five miles on a day with a heat index of 108 degs and found some killer stuff. The Paleo Dalton point made my day. Rare to find mosasaur in this creek but I still managed to find a few verts. The big nautilus was beat up but looks good in my rock garden. The old bottle is a duraglas bottle from 1953.
