    Another Kem Kem Oddity

    Here's a specimen bought at the gem show back in the days when Moroccan vertebrate stuff was starting to appear at Tucson and other shows. It's from the Kem Kem Beds (Cenomanian), Taouz area, Morocco like that other crocodile-like tooth I showed here several days ago.. This one is just under 2 3/8 inches (59mm) long with long folds/ridges of what appears to be enamel along its length so I think it's a tooth. Some of the folds end part of the way to the tip. There are spots where these folds are chipped revealing a rather smooth layer. It shows wear at the tip. I think it's so

    Vertebrate or Pseudofossil

    Hi all. I was was hoping to get help with this one from the community. It was found in-stream near an outcropping of Pittsburg Bluff in Clatsop County, Oregon, and downstream of some Astoria Formation, both marine sediments. I have found mollusks and arthropods in the same collecting area, usually in very hard concretions. To my knowledge no marine vertebrate fossils have been found within the Pittsburg Bluff Group so if it is vertebrate I'm thinking it came down from the Astoria Formation southwest of the area. It looks and feels like bone, and is extremely porous (tongue sticks). Or it may j

  8. Greetings, First post here, and I'm at a loss trying to identify this (suspected) fossil. I found this a few days ago on Zandmotor beach, in Monster in The Netherlands. On first glance it appears to be a molar, but it looks very different from the Pleistocene material that Zandmotor beach is known for. I've never seen a molar inside a matrix like this one. Some have suggested that it's just a rock, or maybe a piece of limonite. I realise that this specimen looks completely different from other fossil material found at Zandmotor beach, but I'm still positive th

    Shark teeth and vertebrate

    Any thoughts on the type of teeth found here? Found recently in a Monmouth county creek. One appears to be a crow shark, possibly a shark vertebrate and unsure of the others.

    Fossilized Tooth

    I found this fossilized tooth in/near/around the Arkansas River in Oklahoma over the weekend. I’m having trouble finding a match for it online in order to ID it myself. I was hoping someone from this group could help. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

    Show Us Your Dinosaur Jaws!

    Show us your dinosaur jaws! I recently got my first piece. A partial dentary of a juvenile Edmontosaurus from the Hell Creek. After scanning it with photogrammetry I also mirrored the jaw to create the right side of the jaw as well. Quite happy with how the scan turned out too.

  15. As it looks like I won't be able to make it back out to Charleston for quite a while, I was wondering what the fossil hunting scene looks like here in Texas. I've heard that there's some miocene material to be had around Galveston and Bolivar, and I've heard about the Eagle Ford Formation and Post Oak Creek, but I haven't come across a whole lot of information. I do know there are some invertebrate fossils along the Brazos, but I'm not super big on snails. I'm in the Houston area, so a day trip down to the coast is definitely feasible, but I need to do some more research before I commit to mak

  18. I found this broken end of a long bone several months ago near Houston in the late Pleistocene gravel deposits of the Beaumont and Lissie Formations. Here are some pictures (with each grid on the graphing paper being 1/4 of an inch): I know that it's the end of a tibia because the grooves on the end are shaped to match an astragalus (ankle bone), and that their slanted angle indicates a perissodactyl like a horse, tapir, or rhino rather than an artiodactyl like a bison, pig, deer, or camel. Based on the size of the bone, I think I can pretty easily r
  19. Hey everybody! I've got two bones that I'm looking to ID, and unfortunately neither of them are complete. However, the good news is that they both have enough diagnostic features that I'm optimistic an ID can be made. Here's the first: This first one is a partial limb bone that I found in a river southwest of Houston. The sediments that make up the river bed are from the Beaumont and Lissie Formations and are predominantly Pleistocene in age (although there is the occasional Pliocene/Miocene material that washes down from further upriver). What

    Oreodont?

    The partial repaired jaw was donated to a geological organization in Phoenix. I thought that I would try to ID it before giving it away probably to a young fossil enthusiast. No provenance is known. Is this an oreodont? Any idea where it came from? First photo of entire rock has a field of view of 4 inches. The second of the teeth is 2.25 inches for a field of view. Thanks, John
  24. Hello, Heres another chunk of interesting-looking bone for which curiosity has finally gotten the best of me. This is a piece I picked up in 2021 on my summer dig at the Hell Creek Formation in Montana. I feel there’s a chance this piece might be identifiable. This piece of bone is bowl-shaped with a strange web-like texturing on the convex side. The edge of the bone which is not broken is rounded and almost flower petal like. There is a set of T-shaped rounded ridges on the concave side. Not the best quality bone either, with significant siderite encrustation being pre
