  1. A bad morning in big brook is better than a good morning almost anywhere else. And a good morning is..... bunch of shark teeth, shark vert, an unidentified vert, deer leg, rib fragment and atlas vertebrae (who decapitated my Bambi?). A good size belemnite and a pice of pottery
  2. Vert ID fish? Not shark

    Gods afternoon all this little baby is 1/2 inch long apologies for a lousy iPhone 5 and a lousy photographer I’m usually wrong but I’ll say that it doesn’t look like the shark or fish vertebrae I’ve found. What strikes me is the open centrum. About the only thing I know for sure is that it’s not a concretion. In order the photos back, top, bottom, front and side
  3. Please assist ID several finds

    Hi all, just got into fossils as a hobby, please see my introduction message i just posted. As a MD i have some knowledge on bone structure and shape, ofcourse not perfect with animals. I’ve several fossils found by my dad over the last 20y and myself last months. Literally in the backyard. (<< Town in Holland aka the Netherlands, Europe>>) Crucial in this is area is used for sand mining. This has resulted in a large lake, with depts up to 100meter (200+ft i believe. The water is fed by an old river, called ‘oude ijssel’. I will split this in batches, to keep things orderly. thank you so much A: Egg? Was one piece but dropped it. B: vertebrae of what? Looks like bone to me, the verbebrea part. With clear distinction to what i believe is soft tisseu with skin ( 1 side)
  4. Vertebrae question 2

    Hello again are these 3 in fact vertebrae and if so can you tell if fish, ray or shark? as always my apologies for a lousy iPhone 5 and my thank you for your help
  5. Hi all, I was curious if anyone knew someone from a college or museum that I could contact to ask if they can I.D my associated shark vertebrae? TIA, have a great day!
  6. Fish Vert ID please

    Hello and thank you in advance. These are two verts which I believe are fish. I am asking for confirmation of that (and if not fish, what?). And if at all possible what kind of fish. The big one is under 1/2 inch long and the small one is 1/4 inch
  7. Fish/shark vertebrae ?

    Most of the vertebrae that I find are 1/4” in size. Found this 2” vertebrae near the York River State Park in Virginia. Any ideas on what it belonged to?
  8. What types of vertebrae are these?

    Here are two vertebrae that I've found at Calvert Cliffs sites (Miocene exposures) in Maryland in recent weeks. The first I also included in a recent trip report, but am posting it separately here along with some better pictures. Any idea what kind of animal this came from? My first thought was a cetacean/dolphin based on the oval part of the photo in the upper right (which looks sort of like the epiphysis attachment point--though that's probably not the correct term--on another but otherwise different looking cetacean/dolphin vert I found). However, I haven't yet found pictures of any similar verts to this one online. The second vert below I found a few weeks back. I think it may be from a fish but would appreciate confirmation or correction of that. I had trouble getting clear photos of the top (looking down at the "ears") and bottom, but can try again if needed/helpful. It doesn't look to me like there are broken processes on the bottom side but I could be wrong. Thanks for any help with these!
  9. ID 45mm thick fossil

    I found a unique reddish colored 45mm thick fossil while on my walk yesterday. It is pentagon shaped. Longest distance is from side 6-4 and is 9cm. The dorsal side is darker than the ventral. Four of the sides are smooth. Side 6 has a smooth surface and is size of a quarter. Found in area of Pleistocene material. My guess was neural (4) from a tortoise. Based on drawing in Hulbert's book The Fossils Vertebrates of Florida (p. 122). The thickness of this fossil is what is raising the question for me? ID help is greatly appreciated. SIDE 1 SIDE 2 SIDE 3 SIDE 4 SIDE 5 SIDE 6 SIDE 7
  10. Vertebrae from Kem Kem

    ... as mentioned in my other post, from the Kem Kem is this vertebrae. And before I start cleaning it up it would be great to get some comments from the vert experts here - maybe crocodile?
  11. Vertebra Process?

    This is a small bone scrap I found in the Dinosaur Park Formation a few years ago. I just recently took a closer look at it, and I now think it’s a vertebra process. What do you guys think? Based on the texture of the second pic, is it possible to tell what kind of animal it is? I’m thinking ceratopsian (excuse the very rough sketch)
  12. Dinosaur Vertebrae?

    Hi all! I recently purchased this dinosaur bone from an estate sale in Maryland USA. I think it looks like a vertebrae, but I’m not sure if I’m right. Does anyone know what it is, or even what it came from? It weighs 1.475lbs and was labeled from the Jurassic period (although the person that labeled it is a gemologist, not a geologist so it was his best guess after researching). The tape measurer pictured is in inches, I could not find one with centimeters. Thanks for any help!!!
  13. What is it?

    I need help with an ID. I am very new to this hunting and could use any help. I got both of these from Big Brook in Colts Neck, New Jersey. Any help is greatly appreciated.
  14. Calvert cetacean mandible ID

    Found this mandible in a rock fall at Calvert cliffs in June. I believe it’s mysticete because of the lack of tooth sockets, but am open to complete redirection if I’ve got it all wrong. Any ideas?
  15. These are mostly South Carolina River finds, with a couple of Moroccan specimens mixed in. The Megalodon teeth are all natural, ranging from 3” to the 4” range. The shark vertebra go up to about 3.5” in diameter. I have more elsewhere as well. And more Megalodon teeth. LOOKING FOR: I am open to all offers. I am especially interested in matrix pieces of different kinds, unprepared fish, but again I am very open to all sorts of offers.
  16. This was found on the sand in Myrtle beach South Carolina. Looks like a small vertebrae possibly or a fish skull element, it’s about the size of a dime. Thanks for looking.
  17. Whitby Vertebrae

    Just opened this nodule on a beach in the Whitby area, I can’t help thinking that it looks like a couple of verts, can anyone confirm this and maybe suggest a species? I’ll put better pics up when I get home if needed. Thank you for looking
  18. ID required for Cretaceous fossil

    Hi! I'm new here. I found this fossil recently near Drumheller, Alberta Canada. I think it's a vertebrae but I can't seem find example images of anything like it due to its asymmetrical shape. It was found near both other marine (bi-valve) fossils and other bone fragments. Not sure if it comes from a dinosaur or marine reptile. Thanks for your help! Cheers, Matt
  19. Hi all. I’m new to the forum and I have a number of items that I’m hoping you all can help me ID. This one is from the banks of the Meramec River in st. Louis county, missouri. I’d say it’s about 7 cm wide, 7 cm long, and 5 cm tall. It looks somewhat similar to pics I’ve seen of various vertebrae, but I’m not sure. I’ve included pics of it from several angles. Any thoughts?? Thanks!
  20. Shark or bony fish verts?

    How do you differ between bony fish vertebrae and shark vertebrae? What about these three vertebrae from Kiowa formation (Albian)? #1: approximately 5.5mm wide and 3mm thick. #2: approximately 5.5mm wide and 2.3mm thick. #3: approximately 4.8mm wide and 2.3mm thick.
  21. Small vert

    Fish or reptile? Douglas Point, MD. 8 mm
  22. Shark teeth and vert

    Some miscellaneous fossils. Teeth are from Flag pond, MD. Vertebrae (10 mm) is from Douglas Point, MD.
  23. Judith River formation vert

    Found yesterday near the milk river, Judith river formation. The biggest vert we’ve found for sure. Several other fairly large verts nearby that seemed to be hadrosaur, but not sure - and still 1/2 the size. Lots and lots of meat eater bones as well. -sorry the photos are rotated
  24. Help with Fossil ID

    I found this while walking on the beach before sunset today. Need help identifying it, if possible. Based on limited research and comparisons, the fossil is no doubt a vertebrae and looks very similar to some I have seen associated with a Mosasaur. THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR ANY HELP OR IDEAS THAT MAY BE GIVEN!!!
  25. Judith river vert

    A couple of verts from the milk river Judith formation. Different shapes - assuming different dinosaurs. I know they’re a bit broken up, but just curious if anyone can tell what they’re from based odd the pics alone. first four pics from one vert, last three from the other thanks!!
