  1. Are either of these two bones?

    These are throwing me for a loop. Especially the repetitive markings in the smaller one. Lower river Brazos, Texas. Thanks in advance
  2. Hi everyone, I am new to fossil hunting and recently took a trip to my local spot at Aust cliff in Bristol. I found some small chunks of bone bed about the size of a golf ball along the foreshore which I can see have small bits of bone including teeth. Does anyone have a good technique to extracting these without damaging the interesting bits. Cheers
  3. Dino or croc vert

    Hello, i bought this vert today, the seller say that is spino but i need à confirmation. It clarly come from the Kem Kem and it’s realy big
  4. New Jersey Cretaceous Turtle Bone?

    Hello everyone, I found this bone while on a hunt in the cretaceous creeks of new jersey, very odd bone and definitely feels fossilized. My best guess is turtle but I am very unsure, I appreciate any feedback on this piece if it is Id'able thank you.
  5. A varied collection

    A lot of my collection is bought, as in 'oooh, pretty' many years ago with the result of having no clue as to species or where they were found. But I figured I'd show you all what I got anyway. This one I found and am hoping will look decent after prepping.
  6. Great Morava bones ID

    Hi. Found these bones yesterday at gravel pits facility where workers separate big rocks from the fine sand from Great Morava river. They don't burn at all or smell like a burnt bone. Here are some photos if someone can help me identify them : I know for one that is radius bone from Bison/Bos, but don't know about the others. P.s. Also u can see that one bone has something similar like "scars" from a possible flint? Please help! Darko
  7. 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
  8. Bones Central Texas

    I found a deer skull in an area of Central Texas where Native Americans lived for over 12,000 years. The skull was found half way up a tree. Near by were other weathered bones, mainly of deer. Additonally I found an unusal orbital socket, I guess that is the term. The eye socket is the same height as that of the deer, but much more elongated and it looks like the nose would have been very near the eyes, like a cat. I am posting a picture of the bones in hopes that someone has knowledge about both living and extinct Texas wildlife. I can post different angles, if needed. Thanks for looking and any help you can provide!
  9. Trying to figure out what these might be. They would have been under water, the location still has a lake overtop of it, but the water levels were low when we found it. Soil has a lot of clay and there are tons of petrified or fossilized bones that litter the beach. Seemed larger than cow rib...any ideas?
  10. Need help

    so i went to Orlando Science Center today for the Dino Digs exhibition but in Jurassic Ridge dig pit area i know that there is a Camptosaurus, Camarasaurus, Ceratosaurus and a Stegosaurus, but there is some species and genus of dinosaurs and other animals that i dont know what there like take for example the turtle shell, the alligator crocodile like animal fossil, the ankylosaur like fossil and that bone that i dont know what species does it belong to and that nest that i don't know which dinosaur does it belong to.
  11. What kind of bones are these

  12. Bull Canyon Formation

    Here are some of my Bull Canyon Formation fossils from New Mexico.
  13. Anything worth pursuing?

    I found these in a quarry in Madison Wi. There were quite a few of these with different shapes and configurations of what look like bones to me. These were from a smallish pile at the bottom of the deepest part of the quarry and I would guess that are from lower down in the earth. I apologize if I am not using the proper language as I am very new to this. i have seen some sea bed rock from a different quarry, that has loads of shells, mollusks, and snails in them. This rock looks very different from the sea bed pieces I have. Are these bones? Is it chert? I was with two other people or I would have pulled every piece I could find off the piles to see if anything could be puzzled together, as these and the others were all in one area of the pile. If the pictures could be more helpful in different light etc, I will happily retake some. Thanks for any insight into them.
  14. Bone Identification - Botswana Skull

    Hi everyone, Can you help me identify what animal this may be? It was found in Botswana. It is a semi-arid climate. Any idea if it's carnivorous or not? Any clues are helpful! Thanks.
  15. Bones found South New Jersey

    Hi all! I'm just curious is anyone has an idea what animal this is. It was found in my backyard which is wooded with oaks and pines. Location is South New Jersey. It's a pretty heavily wooded area. I'm thinking maybe a fox? I also found near the bones a black feather which may have come from a crow or vulture. Thanks everyone!
  16. Help identify

    Found the bones in northern kansas in a wash out. They were 8 - 10’ below the surface.
  17. Found these in a small creek in North Florida. Have no idea what they could be. They could potentially fit together (they were found together)?? Unsure. That's my fossil hunting partners guess, but we're both pretty clueless. Manatee jaw? Help!
  18. Are these bone fossils?

    Found these in east central Arizona, close to where I have found fossil footprints. The brown rock surrounding the white material looks like fine sand adhering to it. The white material is smooth.
  19. Saurid Skull, Croatian Coast

    Hello Sorry I'm new I just registered to find some answers Yesterday while searching for some fossilized clams or marine stuff I came across this little beauty. It's about 7 cm wide and some 5 cm high. I found it at the Dalmatian Coast in Croatia. Anybody knows what it could be? And, what do I do with it now? Do I carry it to a museum? Kind regards
  20. May be a long shot

    Hi, i know this may be a long shot, but i found this fossil in the cliffs of Hunstanton, Norfolk, UK It is in a red stone, and was originally in a much larger boulder Any ideas as to what it could belong to would be greatly helpful The rock is about 9cm at its longest point, and the fossil is roughly 7cm as it goes into the rock, and would be longer if not broken.
  21. Possible ancient bison bones

    These bones were found just above Cretaceous gravel layer at a local DFW creek today. One the leg bones measures almost 17 to 18 inches in length. Leg bone width on this one is around 3 to 4 inches. I also found vertebra bone of bison as well. They look juvenile. These are probably either adult steppe bison bones or juvenile bones. Earlier this month, at a another creek, I also found steppe bison dorsal vertebra with rib bones within similar layer. Your opinion helps.
  22. Ichthyosaur paddle bones

    From the album Holzmaden

    These are four Ichthyosaur paddle bones from the lower Jurassic from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden. The prep was very difficult because the stone was kinda hard. I gave it up several times but now its finally finished. I hitted the bones a few times so its not the nicest piece. Maybe I will try to prep it from the other side one day. Some more pictures:
  23. Odd bones from the Brazos

    These are a couple of odd bones from the Brazos River between SH 159 and FM 529. They appear to be the same thing, other than size, and they appear to be from opposite sides of the animal. The smaller one is 11.5 cm long and is pretty much intact. The larger one is 25 cm and is broken at the tip and the rounded lobe end. It probably would have been 30 cm plus. They are highly mineralized. Any idea what these might be?
  24. Spinosaurus bones?

    Can anyone identify these as spinosaurus bones. Ive come across these pictures with very little information, other than apparently spinosaur bones from Morocco. I think the verts look clearly spinosaur, but I'm not very familiar with spinosaur long bones, although they immediately struck me as looking a little off. Maybe them being flattened is throwing me off. This seemed like a perfect opportunity for not just help learning spino long bones, but also while dealing with details like that, which can interfere with "standard" identification. In the 4th picture, the fossil on the bottom right--is that a vert with a long bone next to it? It's positioned like the sail of the vert, and seems to be attached to the vert but something about the bone looks wrong for part of the sail, to me...maybe that it looks like it's rounded along the length's edge, which I thought was not how they were shaped(if I'm wrong, I could also be just picturing dimetrodon sail spines...well, or just plain wrong, of course)? ...As well as looking just like the other long bones present. Thanks for any and all help!
  25. Hi All, I realize that the topic is not pleasant but "safety first" especially if you want to pass your passion to the next generation, right? We bought a Geiger counter and went over our fossil collection (see video below for the results). I wonder if that is a standard practice among collectors or not so much. I recently read a topic on this forum about somebody finding a pile of bones at Calvert cliffs. Could it be the case? I know I buried my dinobone slab after measuring it. I'm not saying anyone should get rid of the bones in their collection but being aware of the radioactivity levels would not hurt. Anyone care to share their experience in this area? Thanks!
