    Ichthyosaurus Stenopterygius?

    This is supposed to be a Stenopterygius vertebra from Holzmaden, Germany. But is it? Could be a fish vert? (Xiphactinus audax?)

    Vertebral bone

    This vertebral bone is from Yunnan, China. Any idea if it’s mammalian or dinosaurian?

    Triceratops?

    Hi everyone, I recently bought this 'Triceratops' vert from Hell Creek online. But on receiving it, I have doubts. I might consider it to be an Edmontosaurus vert. It is not that heart shaped and thicker than a Ceratopsian I figure. What are your thoughts? Dimensions: 12,5cm (h), 9cm (w), 7cm (d) - weight +/- 700 grams More pics needed? Thank you!
  4. @paulgdls is it possible to best guesstimate the size of a Ophthalmosaurus icenicus from just one solitary anterior caudal vertebra. Height 10 cms Width 10.5 cms Length measured at the neural canal 3 cms
  5. Interesting two stepped ridge running around the centrum any suggestions as to why @paulgdls @pachy-pleuro-whatnot-odon found from the Kellaways.

    Vertebra from Big Brook

    ound this vertebra yesterday at Big Brook. Concave on both sides, but one side is smaller than the other, giving it the shape of a truncated cone. If you need other views or macros, please let me know. IMG_1867.MOV IMG_1867.MOV

    Carcharondotosaurid Vertebra?

    I have here a 3.3" Vertebra from the Kem Kem of Morocco, identified as Carcharodontosaurid. Before I buy it, I'd like to know how accurate that identification might be. I know how tricky verts can be to narrow down. I'm suspicious for that reason. Thank you, Bellamy

    UK Sauropod vert?

    Hello, any thoughts on this? Sold as UK Sauropod from Abingdon. I've struck out so much with these, but fingers crossed ... 11 x 12 x 5.5cm Many thanks

    Another abingdon "theropod" vert

    Hi, anyone able to help with this? It's sold as Theropod, from Abingdon. 10.5 x 8 x5 cm. Unfortunately it's very weathered and has been squashed and distorted during fossilization, so it seems difficult to ID. Personally, I think it's been misidentified. At 5 cm, it seems much too thin. Secondly, I'm looking at some drawings of theropod and megalosaur verts and they seem to bend inwards a lot in the middle (not sure of the actual term for it) with large centrums and going narrow in the middle. But if someone else can take a second look, just to con

    Is this a fossilized vertebra?

    Hi im a mineral hunter, and my whife picked up this little thing, first i was thinking it was some kind of slag, but after closer inspection it seem to have kind of a organic shape and is non magnetic with lots of small pores. Can this be a fossilized thing?
  12. Hi all, I recently decided to buy the below plesiosaur vertebra after having seen it for a long, long time. It dates to the Callovian of the Oxford Clay and was found at Peterborough. I suspect it may be attributed to Muraenosaurus leedsi, as it comes from a cryptoclidid plesiosaur, but is both larger and more elongate that the typical Oxford Clay Cryptoclidus vertebrae I'm familiar with. Supposedly coming from an old collection, it has a blackened exterior that doesn't cover the entire piece, with the more common buff colour visible underneath. As such, I expecte

    Two Medicine Hadrosaur vertebra ID

    Hi! I got this Hadrosaur caudal vert from the two medicine formation. in Pondera County. I was wondering what part of the tail this bone would have come from? the seller says it is likely a proximal vertebra, but couldn't give any details on its placement. Is there any possible way you can tell what part of the tail this fossil belonged to? assuming a grown individual of the species. If exact placement isn't possible, Ill settle for general region. The centrum of the Vert is 2.7 x 2.3. x 2.2" and the process is 7.6" long in a straightline including the anterior points
  14. Afternoon everybody. I found this in Feb 2020, after Storm Dennis, on my same south Suffolk beach. I've looked at many vertebrae images online and in books, and none seem quite right. It looks closest to a seal...? But that doesn't seem right. Thanks for any guidance!

    Vertebral spinous process?

    The Brazos River is down enough to hunt some again in my area. This is a find from yesterday, sandy gravel matrix in the river. Pleistocene era. I'm thinking it looks like a spinous process from a large vertebrae, but I'm not positive. I'm also unclear on size differences and other distinctions that could help me narrow down the species. I was thinking possibly bison or camel. Any ideas would be great.
  16. Hi hoping for a bit of help with a couple of shark teeth finds from the Eocene (42mya), Bracklesham group in Whitecliffe Bay on the Isle of Wight. I don't often find shark teeth so not sure about the ID so hope someone on here can help. Walking back to the car I found a vertebra in the sand washed out from the cliff, (cliffs are Bembridge Marls / Solent Group or early Oligocene - about 34mya) my initial thought was turtle but something about the shape is making me think lizard so again would appreciate any help with the ID. (Grid in the photographs is 5mm square). If other views would help pl

    Odd Lance fm. Vertebra

    I found this odd vertebra in Wyoming's Lance fm. over the summer. I was told by a guide that it may be a turtle cervical vertebra, but I wanted to see what other forum members thought. It's about 1.5 cm long and around 1.3 cm in width.
  18. I have been meaning to post my Calvert Cliffs mystery bones for awhile, and I keep finding more, so I finally took some pics to share. These are all Miocene finds collected on different trips over the last 12 months. I would be grateful for any help with ID.

    Sea fossils id

    Hello! I'm asking for another person who found these fossils in southern Sweden (Kristianstad). There is sites around this region which have fossils from the cretaceous period so Im thinking it is plausible that these also are cretaceous. I've numbered each fossil to make it easier to talk about them and to id what type of fossils they are.

    Matoaka 1-30-21

    I made it out to Matoaka yesterday before today’s snowstorm and had a successful Maryland Miocene hunt, despite a large amount of ice obscuring the shoreline. (I won’t complain about the cold after @RuMert’s trip report yesterday. ) I found an unusually high number of cetacean vertebrae and cookies (epiphyses), several Ecphoras, shark teeth, and some other nice finds. This Carcharodon hastalis tooth was waiting for me when I arrived on the beach. And this cookie was just a few feet away. Off to a good start! Heading north, the ice got progressiv
  21. Hi ya'll! I had my first real break as a newbie recently and finally reached my all time goal of finding my first shark tooth this weekend. This was at the waco pit, which I (think) is at a confluence of the del rio formation and the eagle ford formation. Over the course of several afternoons, 3 more shark teeth followed, as well as a vertebrae to wrap up a nice trip that also drew up some pyratized ammonites and shells. The daily collection limit of two per person meant that my brother and I were able to really zone in to hot spots with what we wanted rather than being
  22. Howdy! How do you tell a Shark Vertebra from a Ray Vertebra? I can't seem to find much info online about Ray Verts. I came across (and vaguely remembered reading on a post) that ray vertebrae are more rectangular....is that true? Here are a few vertebrae that I think might be ray and if I could get a positive yay or nay on that.....I'd be very grateful! These are from Post Oak Creek in Texas - Cretaceous Era Size 4mm Size 3 mm

    part vertebra croc?

    I have this piece, crocodile?, which I think is a part of a vertebra?. It looks like the are zygapophyses visable and I think the grove should be the neuralcanal. But I am not sure, con someone shine a light on it? Measurements: 70x60x36mm Thank you

    Help with UK Dinosaur/Reptile Vertebra ID

    I'm trying to help someone ID this vertebra found in Gloucester, UK a few years ago. It's from a Jurassic site and I'm pretty sure it's a theropod vertebra but was wondering if anyone on the forum could help out? I have a theropod tooth from the same place which I might post soon in the hope of narrowing down an ID too. Thanks in advance!

    Another UK sauropod vert?

    Hello, I'm more hopeful about this one. It looks different than the other verts that are for sale which are usually misidentified plesiosaur/pliosaur verts. Plus, while it has a couple of holes at the bottom--they are nowhere near as distinct as others. It is from Abingdon, Kimmeridge Clay. Dimensions are 6.5 x 5 x 7 Now, I haven't seen Sauropod verts listed for sale which are this shape--which half makes me think it's something else entirely. But, then again, most sauropod verts from the UK are misidentified so I can't really judge with others listed for sa
