  1. British dinosaur vertebrae

    Could someone please ID this dinosaur vertebrae up for sale from brook bay, Isle Of Wight?
  2. First croc find

    Thought you might all like to see this. I was super pleased to finally find some croc because it’s rare on the Yorkshire Coast. I noticed this worn vertebrae wearing out of a boulder. As found Extracted Chuffed
  3. Quick river trip

    Took the family out to the river this past weekend for a quick look and found a few decent teeth and some less common finds - at least for us. Two shark vertebra and a horse tooth. It's getting crowded out there with the warm weather, time to explore some new spots.
  4. Florida teeth, bone, and vertebrae

    I have had the delight of hunting the Peace river and it's Tributaries for a few years now. Time was taken to combine my finds and I discovered some unknowns that I hope someone can help me with!! Rib. It does not appear to be Dugong. Any chance of a broad classification?? These look like bullas, but so different than whales. I was told horse. Could this be correct?? Unknown Teeth:
  5. soft shell turtle vertebrae?

    In person this is a truly lovely fossil that I found at Cherry Grove, SC 4/5/20. I took 30 pictures and these were the best. My guess is that it is a soft shell turtle double/triple vertebra. Does anyone have a better guess?
  6. Iowa mammal bone ID help

    Hi everyone, I found what I think are a lumbar vertebra and an astragalus bone. I'm not sure how old they are, but they both seem pretty weathered and possibly mineralized. Both appear to be from bovids(?). These were found on a river sandbar around Ames, IA after recent spring flooding. Does anyone know how to distinguish bison from cattle bones? The vertebra is 35 cm wide, 10 cm long, and 8 cm tall. The astragalus is 7.4 cm long, 5.5 cm wide, and 4 cm deep.
  7. Spinosaur Caudal Vertebra

  8. Hi, I'm seeking info. I found this about 15 kilometers inland from the Sea of Cortez and 15 kilometers south of Los Barriles, Baja Sur, Mexico. It was on a steep hillside above a small sandy wash or arroyo which will later flow into another and then the Sea, maybe 75 meters elevation. The person who took me to this gully said he has found Megalodon teeth here. It literally looks like a one kilo stack of tortillas, same size, dimension and layering. It's about 20 centimeters in diameter and 5 centimeters tall. I have found whale discs before but only on fresh skeletons and this does look similar but perhaps it's just a sedimentary deposit. I also found what appeared to be a rib about one meter in length but broken into about 8 pieces along with a few other pieces that didn't look like they belonged. I'm not sure about the geology. Appeared be banded horizontal layers with a surprising amount of some type of crystal that looked like selenite or calcite.
  9. It is a vertebra for sale as baryonyx, is it?
  10. I went fossil hunting at the North Sulphur River in Ladonia, Texas, today and found two relatively small vertebrae and an interesting bone shard that I would love to have identified. As far as I know, the fossils from around this area are typically from the Upper Cretaceous period, though fossils from different time periods have been found here. If you would please help me identify these fossils, that would be great!

  12. Last Saturday I was in the quarry Kromer (Posidonia Shale, Lower Jurassic) for the first time of the year. Maybe some of you already noticed this topic: http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/93302-prepping-a-plate-with-some-ichthyosaur-vertebrae/ Beside of this plate I also found some other cool things but firstly here is a picture of the quarry: You are allowed to search in the heaps on the left behind the white car. The material isn't that bad at the moment. I was there about 6 hours and I found about 6 teeth. I already prepped three Stenosaurus (crocodile) teeth: 1 cm long: 1.8 cm long: (the best one) And 1.2 cm long: (damaged) I also found this fish: The cross section is about 5 cm long and it will need very much prep work... I don't think that I will do this one in the near future although a friend and expert said that this is a kinda nice find! My favourite finds were the bones. I found several incomplete ones which I didn't take home but also the plate with the vertebrae and another plate with some bones on it. Here is a picture of one of the visible bones: I think that should be an Ichthyosaur Humerus but I am not entire sure. I will post some more pictures of it tomorrow and after the prep. There are also a couple of ribs on the plate so it could be interesting! And for all the invertebrate fans. Here is a sweet little ammonite: Thanks for watching!!
  13. The quarry Kromer near Holzmaden did open two weeks ago (it was closed during winter). So last Saturday I was there the first time this year and I have to say that I am kinda satisfied with my finds! I found several marine reptile teeth, some mainly incomplete bones and a fish with much potential. In this topic I want to show how I prep/prepped a plate on which originally two Ichthyosaur verts were visible. The verts are all about 4 cm big. Here is a picture of the unprepped plate: (I have the other parts...) The prep work is very difficult because the stone is extremely hard. So I have to use my air pen to remove the stone directly above the verts and then I remove the remaining thin layer with my sandblaster with about 6 bar which is probably too much for the bones but otherwise I wouldnt do any progress ... This is the current situation: Until now I prepped about 4 hours and now you see that there are even more vertebrae on the plate At least 3 and a half.... And here is the one which wasnt visible at first. I damaged it a bit but I think its not too bad. Hopefully the stone is a bit softer around this one: I think I have to work many hours on it so wish me luck @LiamL
  14. Whale vertebra?

    I was in a Texas museum yesterday and was looking at a case of primarily pleistocene fossils. This vertebrae was labeled mastodon, but really doesn't look like any mastodon vertebrae that I've seen. We don't generally find whale vertebrae where i look for fossils, but this hits me and I definitely don't know whale, as possibly whale? Vertical thickness is approximately 4-5 inches, 10-12cm. There is no other labeling other than mastodon. Sorry for the quality of the photos, dark lighting and a hand held camera.
  15. Vertebrae of some sort?

    Found in the same area on beach in South Carolina. I'm thinking a vertebrae of some sort?
  16. Mini Miocene Marine Mammal

    I found this a few days ago along the Virginia side of the Potomac River along a miocene cliff. It's mostly if not all Choptank formation. Any ideas about a genus? Grid is in inches. Looks like maybe mature dolphin tailbone, but it's so small???
  17. Hi everyone, Im looking at a bunch of stuff that someone got from the big fossil expo this month, but I want to be sure of what is what before I do anything. There's a few things way beyond what I could potentially get, but I'm just curious about in general. These are all Moroccan, and most, if not all, are Kem Kem. are these first 4 pics spinosaur? With the teeth I know the 2 on the top&left are probably carchar teeth, but I'm wondering about the other 2. In the 2nd picture, I'm guessing the right one is a spinosaur vert, right? What about the other one? I'm sure it would probably be very hard to tell with just a single rib, but could the rib be spinosaurus? It seems to match some museum spino skeleton ribs, but that's the best I can figure out:/
  18. Is this a vertebra?

    Id be very grateful for an ID, found loose on the coast of Yorkshire, evidence of a recent cliff fall. Area known for mesozoic finds, ammonites, ichthyosaur finds etc. length just over 6cm, circumference -widest bit- just over 16 cm. If it is bone, like a vertebra, how do i care for it? Thanks.
  19. Shark vertebrae

    Hello, I'm new to this forum and I come here to ask for your help. I am graduating in Biology and my final paper is about identifying species of shark vertebrae from an archaeological site. The thing is nobody from my lab knows how to work with it and I spent the whole last year trying to work with these centra but I realized it is a really hard work, almost impossible. I come here to ask if any of you know some good papers about shark vertebrae that could help in my work, or anything else that could help me in this situation. I'd be so thankful!
  20. Hey y'all I've been wanting to add a Carcharodontosaurus bone to my traveling education program. I found this on the favorite auction site. I still don't seem to have a great grasp of vertebrae yet and I know my limitations so I'm here to ask for help. I appreciate any and all help. Thanks y'all.
  21. Where do I belong?

    Got this on a hunt today. Mid. Miocene, Round Mountain Silt Member, Temblor Formation. California. It is 5cm long, 3.5cm wide, 2cm thick. I am presuming whale, but don't really know. It seems strange to me in that the channels that would carry nerves or blood vessels are going perpendicular to the way it would set in the spinal column. One of the channel openings looks to be partially fused off which may have pinched nerves or blocked off blood supply. Any thoughts as to where on the critter it belonged and if indeed it is whale or not?
  22. The title is rather self explanatory looking for a contact, someone in an institution such as museum or university who has some specialty in vertebrae paleontology from the Jurassic era. Any help is greatly appreciated I Have already contacted Joseph Sertich from the Denver museum of science but have received nothing back (nearly a month ago) and the possibility he is away on a field expedition currently and might not be back for some time. Thanks as always Matt
  23. After a month of needle work, finally finished. This cluster is 65x30cm and I love it, lots of work but I just enjoyed it so much that I am sad it is finished Nothing to work on now This was my first work on a fossil and even though quite scary, very rewarding. I am definitely not stopping here. Besides 29pc of shark vertebrae I managed to expose many other fish vertebrae and bone fragments but the highlit must be an Enchodus tooth. Thank you all for your advise and helpful info on this project.
