  1. Found these and a few other things, including petrified wood, modern bone, old looking mineralized bone and new looking mineralized bone, and brachipods in small chunks of limestone. All found in a streambed in Ames, IA just north of Des Moines. Vertebra is flattened, and I'm fairly sure the thing in the middle is a crushing shark tooth. New to the area, geologic map said pleistocene deposits only. Thank you

    Palaeophis vertebra

    I recently added this Palaeophis snake vertebra to my collection Looks real to me. But I am not convinced the data (formation & age) are correct Any comments appreciated Thanks
  4. Hello . Recently got this caudal vert from Hill county of judith river formation . Is this a hadrosaur or a ceratopsian vert ? Best Regards Guns

    Is this a vertebra or something else?

    Found what might be a vertebra yesterday- let me know what yall think with these photos! It looks like it’s about 2 and a half inches tall, or about 6.35 centimeters. It looks like it’s 2.56 centimeters long. Both are just my closest estimates, so take them with a grain of salt-

    Couple of ID’s needed

    Curious about a couple of the fossils I found today, the first one I’m not sure what it might be, second one a hadrosaur vert but I’m wondering if the damage to it isn’t simply from erosion. Maybe bite marks or some pathology? dinosaur park fm
  7. Dear All I've discovered the following which I believe is a tail vertebra approximately 100 m west of Brook chine, Isle of Wright, UK. Is there any of you who can narrow down what it is specifically e.g. animal and body part. I froze my off for four hours in downpouring rain with bone-chilling winds with all my clothing 110% soaked (only gonna make the mistake of forgetting rain clothing and wellingtons once) in the hunt for this one so I praise myself quite lucky for finding this and not catching a cold . When I went to the local pub afterwards my hands were that numb that I coul
  8. This vertebra was found on a NJ beach. It measures about 2.75 by 2.5 inches in size. It appears to be a bone and not a fossil. Just curious what it is from. Thank you in advance.

    Hell creek vertebra

    Hey everyone, I have a vertebra I just finished preparing that I was looking for an ID. It was found in the Hell creek formation near Ekalaka Montana. It is a little crushed and not complete unfortunately but the centrum looks a little geometric to me so I have a tentative ID of a dorsal hadrosaur vertabra. It is 10.5cm long by 15.5cm tall by 6.5cm wide. I would appreciate confirmation or to figure out if it's something else as always thanks for your time and expertise.

    Texas Plesiosaur Vertebra?

    After finding my pyritized ichthyosaur vertebra in the Grayson Formation last Friday, I decided that it was time to revisit previous exposures I had first discovered three years ago with a fresh set of eyes. I made a trip to several of those spots the following Saturday and one of the fossils I found is another vertebra. I initially wrote it off as a fish vertebra because it was so thick, then decided it wasn't flaky enough to be fish and the two holes on one side meant it must be a shark centrum, then thought maybe it could be an ichthyosaur caudal, and as of now I think it might be a plesios

    Is this a whale vertebra?

    Can anyone help me identify this vertebra I found at a beach while sea shell hunting?
  12. I already wrote about in a previous trip report back in September, but I thought it worth posting here as well (I'll link the original trip report below). I'm proud to say that as of last October I was able to donate my first fossil to science - a life-long goal of mine since I was a kid! The mosasaur vertebra I found has the potential to be one of the oldest known to science, or at the very least one of the oldest found in North America. I donated it to SMU's collection after correspondence with Dr. Mike Polcyn as it only seemed right that one of the leading experts on early mosasaurs should

    Please help ID fish vertebra

    Hello! I recently found a fish vertebra while digging with my local archaeology club. Can anyone help identify it? - It was found in the city center of Gouda, The Netherlands - Based on other finds we can roughly date it to between 1500 and 1700 - It was probably quite a big fish; the disc is 2 cm. across

    Out of place mosasaurus vertebra?

    I was out on one of our Miocene beaches famous for the fossil crabs and found a vertebra which looked quite different to other dolphin / whale vertebra I've found but I still put in down as some type of cetacean vert. Some eagle eyed fossil hunters and paleontologists identified it as a potential mosasaurus vertebra when I posted it online (thank Carl!) There are some cretaceous deposits further inland, so potentially it could have been transported by a river or similar down to the beach. It has a definite concave and convex face to it. Is there any other animal it could be, maybe from th

    Large vertebra

    Found what looks like a vertebra fossil on Ponte Vedra Beach. Any ideas what it could be from? About 9 inches wide.

    Mosasaur vertebrae??

    Hello, I'd love to know your opinion about these reptilian vertebrae coming from the lower santonian of northern Spain. Fisrt photo is view from above and second from beneath I've made some guesses about this piece, and I hope some of you could give me your opinion about them. Here come muy guesses: -Taken that it comes from clear ancient marine strata, its general morfphology and its Santonian age, I think it probably is a mosasaur vertebrae. The problem is that there hasn' been any mosasaur reports in these places, basically because vertebra
