  1. Old bison bones

    Found these bones about 8 foot down in a cut bank along a river. Suspect bison.. any help appreciated. Have more pics if needed. I included the cut bank. Believe whole skeleton to be there, did not find head yet. Thanks
  2. A bad morning in big brook is better than a good morning almost anywhere else. And a good morning is..... bunch of shark teeth, shark vert, an unidentified vert, deer leg, rib fragment and atlas vertebrae (who decapitated my Bambi?). A good size belemnite and a pice of pottery
  3. Hi, I'm hoping to go to Happisburgh and East Runton beaches in the hopes of finding mammal bones and teeth (apparently most would be fragmentary). Are there any tips you could share for when looking for these? Many thanks.
  4. Dino bones? ID please

    Went to Big Brook in New Jersey and found these three items. (In VA I have found a lot of whale bone, however this bone is bigger and of different color.) Also, what are the other two curiosities below it? The smaller one looks like a toe. Thank you for looking and for any feed back.
  5. Two small bones found together

    These bones were found a few feet apart from each other falling out of an eroding bank.
  6. Associated? Bones?

    Hi all, sorry for the long post, in advance! I purchased these unprepped with some other stuff, but these bones have lines running thru these that almost looks like quartz? Is it glue that you can put on in the field? The pics don’t do it justice at all, it’s a translucent blueish green, second question I’ve got is, are they associated? They don’t seem to fit together, but they are all the same Color of bone and all the same color of line going thru it? Last question, if they’re are associated what did they come from, and what bones are they? @Troodon @jpc @hadrosauridae. TIA
  7. Texas Pleistocene Rib Bones

    I was searching the gravel bars in the Brazos River just southeast of Houston almost every day last week before the storm hit this weekend. Now the water's too high to look, but I found a pretty good assortment of fossilized Pleistocene aged bones during my trips. Most of what I've found have been fragments that are totally unidentifiable, but a handful still have some significant features that could lead to an ID. These two are both rib bones, but that's about all I know. The first one I initially thought was from a modern cow due to how clean it was, but after picking it up it was clear that it's definitely a fossil - it's mineralized all the way through and has a decent weight to it. The only animals of that size that could produce such a large rib that I can think of off the top of my head would be either bison or hoses. The second bone also looks like a rib, but a lot smaller than the first. It has two deep grooves on either side that seem to match up with pictures I've seen of the origin point in deer and horse ribs where the bone begins to branch away from the vertebral column. As always, any help would be appreciated!
  8. Is this a Fossil or am I crazy?

    While digging holes for sage bushes at my mother's house in Granbury, we found this. Both pieces appear to fit together. Is it a fossil? If so, of what? Should we dig some more? Or am I totally wrong? I have additional photos. Thank you.
  9. Southeast Texas Pleistocene Bones

    I've been searching the gravel bars in the Brazos almost every day this week while the water is still low enough to get down there, and I've collected a pretty good assortment of fossilized bones. Most of what I've found have been fragments that are totally unidentifiable, but a handful still have some significant features that could lead to an ID. There's too many pictures to post all at once, so I'll reply a couple times with more. Thanks for the help! This first find is definitely a tooth and is the only piece I have that isn't from the Brazos, instead I picked it up on a trip to one of the small beaches north of the Texas City dike. I'm thinking bison, but I'm open to suggestions.
  10. Hello everyone! I am a digger and prepper of about 7 or 8 years, and of course a lifelong dino lover. I have a lot of experience both digging and prepping fossils from the Hell Creek formation specifically in Montana, but I still have a lot to learn. More recently I’ve begun prepping bones from the Morrison and Aguja formations, and I’m very intrigued by the differences in bone integrity, structure, quality, and mineral make-up. I understand that bones from the Morrison formation are much, much older than that of the Hell Creek and are by and large more agatized. I don’t mean to generalize, but for the purpose of brevity I’ll get to my main question. Ajuga bones. Particularly from the West Texas/Mexico area. I’m finding them to be very strange. I assume the KT Impact Event has a lot to do with their condition; which makes them even more interesting. The ones I’ve encountered (just in my brief experience) are in perfect shape. No predation. Which would fit with a major extinction event. But more intriguingly, I’ve noticed textural indications reminiscent of tissue/skin/muscle on several bones. Moreover, the bones appear to be white and chalky, and sometimes have a feeling and density similar to your teeth when your mouth is dry (REALLY weird and specific comparison I know but can’t think of a better likeness). I assume some of this has to do with the dry climate? I know these are not modern bones because they are very large and VERY heavy. Can anyone explain to me the reason behind the texture and the makeup of these bones from a geological perspective or their experience prepping bones from this formation? Also, regarding the tissue, I normally assume that tissue like structures are just my imagination running wild, but maybe there’s something to that as well? Thanks so much!! Lauren
  11. Need help ID multiple Items

    Hi guys! I’m new to this, but my wife and I have been shark tooth hunting for the past month thanks to “quarantine”. We have found some interesting things, but can’t seem to pin point what they are exactly. We believe some may be megalodon teeth, great white teeth, and a dugong bone. All were found at Onslow beach,NC. We appreciate your guys help!
  12. I found some teeth and bone fragments digging footings in my backyard. Any idea what animal these might be from? Thanks!!
  13. Bonebed

    Got access to some more private land near Dinosaur PP, company owned. My friend was familiar with this area since he was a kid so he said we should check it out, and we found some awesome dinosaur fossils! So far nothing was collected, but yesterday I got ahold of the land supervisor for the company and after receiving some paperwork coming my way on Monday I will be permitted to surface collect anything I find in this area, so this thread will be updated with more finds this coming week. Here are some photos of what we found so far: A lot of the bones looked like they were from a hadrosaur, sort of confirmed when I found this hadrosaur tooth. However there were two partial tyrannosaurid teeth nearby as well...maybe the hadrosaur got munched on... Limb bone (?) with multiple vertebrae nearby. I set them next to the large bone for the photo. Another vert, this one is in the ground so unfortunately I can’t do anything with it. Many, many bones were scattered around the area. Much more photos to come...very excited about collecting here!!
  14. Took A Long Hike Today

    I wanted to try some new spots that are closer to home, so a family here was nice enough to take me out to their land near Dinosaur Provincial Park and allow me to surface collect. I only kept two things (wasted a good portion of the day searching for tyrannosaur teeth to no avail) but I did find some neat stuff so I thought I’d share. Please excuse the circling and the caption, those were for Instagram. Nice & green this time of year. Won’t look like that for long. Heres something I found a few times today; random pits of petrified wood just shattered. Here’s a good 10 inch chunk that I kept. More petrified wood. Dino bones. Most of them were broken and difficult to tell what they were, as the dinosaur park area bones usually are. Please excuse the circling. It was for Instagram. This was the largest bone I seen today, was over 2 feet long most likely but it was at an awkward place so I didn’t climb any higher to get close. Excuse the caption. This one was fairly large as well. This one I kept because it was one of the only good condition bones that wouldn’t require excavation. Hadrosaur toe bone. (thanks jpc for the help)
  15. Bones from Lance formation

    Hello this bones are form lance formation what could they be form? Thanks.
  16. Help ID - NY, Devonian, bones?

    Hi! Found today a rock containing what seems to me fossilized objects. Location: creek near Ithaca, Tompkins county, USA (Devonian period?) Size of the objects: 5-10 cm (didn’t have a ruler with me for more precise measurement) thank you! Wood or bones? can this be fish remains?
  17. Your fossil white whale

    Figured it'd be an interesting topic. What is your fossil white whale? That one piece you'd love to add to your collection but never have--either missed out, never seen it for sale or it's just far too expensive. My two are a Baryonyx tooth (I spotted one for sale for a decent price during a spell when I wasn't collecting. I'm a fool for not buying it) and a dilophosaurus tooth. I think of the two, the Baryonyx is the more likely to obtain Please share yours I'd love to see what other members are after.
  18. Kem Kem Mixed bones

    Hello, I know assorted bones can be difficult, but I'm wondering if anyone can recognise any of these mixed bones? Labelled as Kem Kem Dinosaur, possibly Spinosaurus. Anyone has any idea. Whether bone, kem kem, dinosaur or spino, that would be much appreciated. Cheers
  19. Spinosaurus forearm?

    I know about the 2 vertebrates in the jacket but the other bones, do you think these are part of the Spinosaur forearms? Fossil found in Morocco.
  20. Bone. Scapula?

    It looks like a scapula to me not sure
  21. More Bones

    Was trying to figure out what these were
  22. Bones 1

  23. Montana unknown

    Milk river find in Montana. Is the little one a piece of a jaw bone (an inch long)? No clue on the larger - thought they maybe the end of a long bone but there’s really not much of a broken base to it.
  24. Bones

    Do you guys mind or idwntify bones on this forum
  25. Hello everyone, found this hallowed out bone in Big Brook nj. It is rock solid and when I did the burn test on it, it remain unscathed with no smell so I definitely think its fossilized bone. I'm not to sure if it's identifiable as is, any thoughts on this one will be appreciated.
