  1. Basilosauridae partial vertebrae

    From the album Marine reptiles and mammals

    Vertebrae damaged during or before fossilization, from a basilosauridae. Found in Albany, GA, in the Ocala limestone formation, an Eocene deposit laid down by the swannee current between about 34-56 mya. The exact species is possibly still up in the air, since it is been suggested that it is something other than the original ID. We're still looking into the possibilities. Found in Georgia, so that limits the possibilities, but still leaves open a number of basilosauridae, including some dorudontinae such as Zygorhiza. Zygorhiza, which is what it was originally supposed to be, is iffy since it hasn't officially ever been found in GA, but I don't think that means it hasn't, doesn't that just mean it hasn't been found by scientific authorities, or confirmed by such? it seems however, that the person who ID'd it as Zygorhiza was Professor Mark Uhen, who I guess is an authority on the subject, but as before, they're not supposed to be found in GA. Another possibility from a different authority on the subject has ID'd it as Cynthiacetus, which I personally would prefer, but sadly that doesn't have any impact in the matter:(
  2. I found these today in a box of fossils from my collection that I had in the 1970's. Other fossils in the box were mainly trilobites, crinoids and brachiopods. At one time, I had several thousand fossils, primarily from Ohio, Alaska and Utah. I personally collected 100% of the collection, so these fossils most likely came from oneof these states. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
  3. Dinosaur Vertebrae from Madagascar

    Hi, any idea which part of this vertebrae belongs to? This dinosaur bone is from Madagascar.
  4. 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!
  5. Summerville Vertebrae

    Hey guys, I pulled these vertebrae out of the chandler bridge formation (late oligocene) in Summerville, SC today. Does anyone know what they belong to?
  6. NSR Quick Trip

    Hello everyone! Well I took a quick trip to the NSR area and went to a couple of different areas I’ve never been too. My first stop I found more petrified wood then bones and fossils but I did find a behave clam, and maybe a Bison tooth as I found the tooth in the water close to the shore. The roots were still in the mud and I stopped it in about a foot of water. May second stop yielded two more teeth one being a fragment of a possible house tooth and the second one looks to be a cow tooth. But was able to find 3 pieces of possible mosasaur bones. One tumbled vertebrae for sure and two other pieces that were close to where I found the vertebrae. I found all of these in about two hours before I had to head back to Dallas. I’m going to put together a video of my finds taken from my GoPro. Enjoy everyone
  7. Dear fellow forum goers, These past few weeks have been quite busy, but that has not stopped me from going on the occasional fossil excursion. A few trips went by since my last posting and I decided to let some trips accumulate before posting again. On these trips I interacted with forum members @Woopaul5 and @frankh8147. The most recent trip was today, 08/12/18, and was somewhat productive. Frank found what we believe to be a part of a mosasaur brain case, which will surely be in his "finds of the year list". I was not as luck but ended up scoring a small point fragment and a jaw section of some fish. There were also some nice quality teeth that I found today. Other than this trip, I scored some nice finds on a few other trips throughout the two months. I hope you enjoy the finds, as I enjoyed finding them, and have a nice day. Kind regards, Trevor Overall Finds Stream Worn Shark's Teeth
  8. Help Identifying Dino fossil

    I would appreciate any help in identifying this fossil. My father purchased it somewhere in the Western US during the 1960's or earlier, but unfortunately I do not have any provenance. It sat in a display case until my parents passed away a few years ago. Due to space limitations, these are low-res pictures, but i'm willing to take different perspectives/resolutions as needed. My apologies for the poor tags... I truly appreciate the help! Best Regards,
  9. Ichthyosaur skull bones

    From the album Holzmaden

    This fossil was found by me two years ago in the visitor quarry Kromer near Holzmaden and was prepped by Roger Furze ( @Ludwigia ). Thanks again On the piece you can see a disarticulated Ichthyosaur skull with some ribs and vertebrae. You can see one eyehole very good, although the eye itself isnt preserved. Isolated bones are not that rare in Holzmaden but such pieces are very rare ! At the maximum the piece is about 24 cm long. Unprepped: Prepped: The eyehole is very good visible: (Probably my favourite part ) The other eyehole: Some more bones: A vertebra: This one could be from a juvenile which is very rare!
  10. Ereotherium caudal??

    This is a vertebra that I found on a gravel bar last month on the south Brazos. It is large but has a small neural opening, and I wonder if it is from near the end of the tail. Someone have a clue? It does look like a megatherium caudal that I found in a paper, but that photo is poor.
  11. Albian Vertebrates

    A few years back I was collecting in the Lower Member of the Glen Rose Formation. That's lower Albian in age. The sediments are shallow marine limestones and clays. Shark and other types of fish teeth are not common but do show up. I also have various bits of turtle bone. Attached are two pictures showing some of the more common teeth which I have references for and will be able to identify with no problem. With them is a small vertebra and that is what I want some help with. I look forward to your responses.
  12. what is it?

    i found this eroded out of the limestone bluffs, at first i thought crinoid but i dont see any form of symmetry or hole in the disk. is it something else? maybe a vertebrae? its about as big around as a dime and a few inches long
  13. On the possible vertebrae: Was told it was a fossilized vertebrae, nothing else really remembered by me at this point. On the Amber: I’ve tried the “tests” to authenticate it, and it seems real, but because there are insects in it, I’d like to double check it’s real and not fake (I have my doubts though) (update, I’ll post the Amber picture separately)
  14. Basilosaurus? Zygorhiza?

    Any ideas? These are the only 4 pictures. I don't know if the back was lost pre or post fossilization.
  15. Vertebrae?

    not sure where it was found. I 've had it for decades. Before I knew about fossils, I thought it belonged to a cow
  16. Hello I know this is dinosaur bone and I have a thought that it is a vertebrae fragment but wondering if anyone can help me identify it better. Thank you.
  17. Spinosaurus sail?

    Ok, so this is supposed to be a spinosaurus vert, one with part of the sail. At first glance it seems perfect, but upon further study, while trying to place it on spinosaurus skeletons, it doesn't seem to match any exactly. For one thing, spinosaurus sails, at least in the relatively insignificant amount of individuals on display, sail bones that don't go any higher than this one(it appears this is a fully intact sail vert), don't seem to get as wide. And the ones that do, then continue up and get thinner. There ARE similar shaped "sail" bones, at the transition to the neck, and tail, but those aren't as tall as this one. The main bone itself appears to be from the tail, or rear part of the sail, but....well, anywhere that one part of the bone fits well, doesnt seem to match the rest of it very well. Sadly I can't find any good images of many of each type of vert, and anywhere that has good close up views of verts, only have 1 or 2 of any type, which isn't good enough to come to any sufficient conclusions. spinosaur fossils(specifically verts), seem to be something they work with a lot, so I would be very surprised if along with all the other spinosaurus verts they get in, they would end up with the sail spine of some other animal. And if somehow so, then not realizing it.
  18. Vertebrae and something else

    Hi all, I had this in my Montana turtle thread but though it needed its own thread. i found some more bone (float) in Eastern Montana coming out of a hill near (same bank but 30 yards away) where I found a turtle fossil last year. It is a variety of bones but 2 are interesting. The one is clearly a vertebrae and from a little research seems to be reptile but what kind? The other is a piece of bone with an interesting cavity in it. Can anyone identify either one? Here are the pics. thanks, Joe
  19. My eyes are not so good when it comes to Kem Kem material. What do you guys think of this vertebrae? Is it indeed Spinosauridae? It looks to me like the process has been reworked, or repaired.
  20. Vertebrae? Waipara, New Zealand

    Forgive any inaccuracies, I haven’t hunted for fossils since childhood on the South coast of England so very much a novice. I found this whilst scouting out a new vineyard site in Waipara Gorge, New Zealand which is a pretty rich area for fossils (mostly Paleogene, and Cretaceous from what I’ve read). It was at the very top of an escarpment rather than the river banks where most are found and definitely in limestone, though I couldn’t tell you the exact type. There’s not much structure left to it (close up picture gives a better idea) but are these vertebrae and any idea what from? About 2cm diameter and 30cm in length. If anyone has any experience with this area I’d love to know more!
  21. Found in Galveston,Tx

    Found this AM on West beach of Galveston.
  22. Unknown Vertebra

    I found this vertebra while diving off Venice, Florida and I'm having trouble identifying it. I was initially told it may be cetacean. Any help would be appreciated! Bottom: Top: Side: Back: Front:
  23. Hi all, I found 3 interesting things on my last day at Onslow Beach NC. They look like some sort of bones to me. One I think is a vertebrae. Of what??? I’m hoping you all can tell me. It looks like 3 is the limit on sending pics so I will have to do several posts. If there is information on posting that I should know please point me there as well. I saw something about using the “photo FAQ-page to learn about posting but couldn’t find it. Thank you in advance. Bone 1... Vertebrae?
