  1. Hello everybody I got this a few weeks ago, but didn't had time to post it. It's from the Munich Fossil Show from an Moroccan dealer. This one was sold as associated Mosasaur Verts from Morocco. No more info on location. But the dealer was Moroccan and had lots of other stuff from Morocco. Since it was on a fossilshow I didn't had time to post pictures here, but for me this looked good enough to get it. What are your thoughts on this one? I still couldn't finde any obvious fabrications. It looks good for me. More pictures can be provided if needed. And I got tow more questions: Is there any better ID possible than just Mosasaur Verts? Should I prep it some more? Removing more Matrix, or the plaster from the back? I would just leave it as it is as I'm not sure if it falls apart if I remove the plaster. Length is about 45 cm (17.7 inches) Thank you for any help!
  2. Champosaur or dinosaur tail?

    Hi. I'm new here. This is being given to me. I haven't seen it, myself, yet, but the person sent me this photo. She said her dad got it from a collector almost 50 years ago in Texas, who said he got it from a local farmer. They called it a dinosaur tail. My very short internet research found possibly Champosaur? Hadrosaur seems less likely. When I get it, I can take more detailed photos to post. Opinions?

    A few hours relaxing and finding teeth.
  4. Random beach fossil

    I found this "fossil" on the beach when I was a kid. Any idea what this is?
  5. Hello! This one looks suspect to me. The smoothness of the bones and the lack of closeup photos to see any air bubbles/casting artifacts makes it hard to discern here. I'm also going to call out the little crevice surrounding the fossil that separates it from the matrix, which to me suggests it was planted into the surrounding rock. Info: Ichthyosaur communis Llavernock beach, South Whales, UK
  6. Iguanodon Cervical Vertebrae

    Here’s a nice iguanodon cervical vertebrae. It’s from the Isle of Wight and is about 4.5 inches long.
  7. Dinosaur Vertebrae

    Hi im in the middle of prepping this dinosaur vertebrae and I’d appreciate help with ID. Its from the early Cretaceous of the Isle of Wight. The neural spine is with the vertebrae but has become broken and lies underneath the vertebrae as well Thanks Nick
  8. I was kayaking and fossiling this weekend with my sister and her husband in the Peace River in Gardner, Fl. and she found a vert and I am having a hard time trying to figure out what it belongs too. At first I thought it was whale but it's too small and as for a gator the shape looks different so any help would be appreciated :-)
  9. Vertebrae ID please

    Could you tell me what this vertebrae belonged to? It will not let me upload more photos. Thank you
  10. Florida Heart Shaped Fossil and other fossils

    I got a few fossils that I needed help identifying. One is a strange heart shape and appears to be bone. There's also a vertebrae and didn't know if it was a fish or shark vertebrae. I'm assuming shark due to its size. Finally, there is a bone that looks like a spur or piece of armor plating that I was trying to ID. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  11. Fish scale, vertebrae, squilla scale, some kind of plants Location: Pohang, south Korea Formation: Duho formation Age: middle miocene
  12. Hello! Need help. This unusual vertebra was found on the Oka River in the Moscow region. Related findings - mammoth fauna and other animals; up to 12 ... 15 million years. Fossilization is uneven. In my opinion, the age of the animal is from 30 to 150 thousand years. The vertebra is like a horse; smaller, but the canal of the spinal cord and the lateral canals of the same size are large. Cranial bulge (bump-hinge) - triple; the two protrusions may have been functional. There is a hole - shown by red arrows. Part of the vertebra is destroyed due to the hit, in my opinion, of the spear of an ancient hunter - the “stone tip” stuck in the bones and partially in one of the small lateral canals. I still have poor understanding of the vertebrae. My interests are the Stone Age, human activities. I suppose it's a cervical vertebra; relatively long. Perhaps these are ancient horses or giraffes. The functionality of these two protrusions is incomprehensible; what are they for?
  13. Bones Found in Ocean Cave

    Hey guys, I've found some bones and want to see if anyone is able to identify them for me. So while snorkeling off the coast of Rarotonga in the Cook Islands I found a spine of some sort. It was resting inside the opening of a cave. The length of spine that was visible to me was about half a metre maybe just over half a metre long. Each single vertebrae was about 20cm wide. Please view the photo provided. (Sorry I'm having trouble uploading the photo, I'm gonna try again in the morning..) Any help or input is greatly appreciated thank you
  14. Sloth Caudal Vertebrae??

    Hello! I have recently returned from a trip to Venice, FL, and I need some help identifying a few of my finds. To start, I THINK this is a sloth caudal vertebrae, but I would like to hear everyone's thoughts. It was found at an inland dredge site in the Venice area that we had permission to hunt on. The measurements are approximately 80mm × 80mm × 60mm, and it is quite dense. The material was vast and varied, so I am unable to pinpoint the era the material was from. Any and all help is greatly appreciated! Thanks, Stefanie
  15. Hell Creek Dino Vertebrae

    Looking for a little help identifying some Hell Creek dinosaur vertebrae. When I purchased these they were described as Struthiomimus and Dromaeosaur, but I don't think those ID's are correct. I think I know what most of them are (the dinosaur anatomy 101 post by @troodon was very helpful), but I'm still unsure on a few. I also thought posting this might help others when it comes to identifying hell creek verts. So I think these 8 are Thescelosaurus caudal verts. They're all fairly chunky and most have a well defined ridge in the middle of the centrum.
  16. Vertebrae ID please

    Hi, This is my first reptile skeletal find, and I'm absolutely thrilled, especially since I didn't expect to find much at the end of the summer. It's from between staithes and mulgrave. I know they're vertebrae X2, however I'm not sure what exactly. They're also in amongst what could be other bits of bone, the top bit looks like some hard outer exoskeleton (scales/shell?) Although it could equally just be the mudstone concretion. Any ideas?
  17. Vertebra, vertebrae or I give up

    Today in north texas I found this piece that appears to be fish vertebrae (possibly 2?)… what do y’all think
  18. Cretaceous vertebra from Morocco

    I bought this at a show from a dealer. Curious as to if we could pin down what kind of dino this might have belonged to? Thanks!
  19. Vertebrae?

    Hi, this fossil i believe was found on Mt. Snowden in Wales, it may be a long shot to identify since its not very unique looking, but worth a shot Definitely some kind of vertebrae, there is another on the other side of the stone that I will attach in the replies, however that one seems to be a deep indent rather than sticking out like the big one, so if anyone could shed some light on that i would be grateful. Thanks!
  20. Mosasaur bone clump

    From the album Marine reptiles and mammals

    A cool Moroccan mosasaur bone pile I acquired, sadly the matrix is so soft the piece broke in transit, but thankfully the splits missed all but 1 smaller bone. I'm considering just removing them from the matrix, and maybe mounting them in the same positions again, but I haven't decided yet. *more info to follow
  21. 2 dimetrodon vertebrae & basioccipital

    From the album Permian era fossils

    Basioccipital about .5" large vertebra about 3" small vertebra about 1.5" *more info to be posted
  22. Vertebra Bone

    We were in Milsap, Texas floating the Brazos river (off of Hwy 20 and 281) My husband thought he stepped on a large rock, but it was this! I can't figure out what it comes from. I looked at most livestock vertebrae and it didn't seem to match up. Very curious what we found! Please help! :-)
  23. Fossil ID?

    Hi I found this thing that looks like a vertebrae. Was found on the beach. Is quite heavy.
