  1. Late cretaceous nodule horn armor spike?

    Good morning folks, I was sorting through a box of unknown fragments from surface collecting this summer. I inspected more closely this piece that looks like a spike. Not quite symmetrical. Looks like designed as potentially a partially lateral nodule or armor spike. I was referring to some past discussions on cerotopsian frill material and am curious if this may even be a frill spike?!? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks everyone.
  2. My Fossil seller show 3 photo of his fossil book but he don't tell what name of this book. I want to know what is this book. Please
  3. Old collection

    I have here a medium collection of presumably dinosaur and rare or uncommon Stones and fossils and information would be much appreciated i have no idea what do with any of it. The collection was found in upstate NY no other information other than the newspaper being old is available.
  4. I have heard about the recent discovery of a new species of airborne dinosaurs in the KemKem and was wondering whether the scientists said something about the teeth of this species. Perhaps it is now possible to shed some light onto some Ornitocheirid teeth from the formation... Unfortunately I cannot access the paper. https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S0195667120303293 Has anybody the complete paper on this species or knows any details? Thanks in advance!
  5. Rare fossil from Erfoud. Dinosaur bone?

    Hi! I see this strange fossil from Erfoud, Morocco. Any idea? Dinosaur bone? Thank you so much.
  6. First time

    I have these two pieces wondering what they are, found in Montana. One looks like a bone, the other part of the jaw. Thanks, Marty
  7. Allosaurus tooth tip?

    Hi guys, I got this tiny allosaurus tooth tip, or at least I think it’s Allosaurus. Is there any way of telling even from a tiny tip? Size 1cm. Kind regards.
  8. Large NJ Cretaceous Bone

    Found this thick bone piece in a new jersey cretaceous creek and wonder if its possible to maybe id since one side has a distinct rough texture while the other is flatter and striated, I would guess either large turtle, mosasaur, or dinosaur. My friend joked its a theropod maxilary skull fragment, but we all know around here that material seems close to impossible to come across haha. Interested to hear any other thoughts.
  9. Dinosaur egg with embryo?

    This egg is from Jiangxi, China. There are white deposits inside the egg. Are these bone fragments of an embryo?
  10. Charmouth bone?

    Hi all, thank you for letting me join and post our find. My kids found this fossil(?) on Charmouth beach in the UK a few years ago. We didn't think it was anything until a family friend pointed out that it looked like a vertebrae or pelvis bone of some kind. I have no idea honestly so my apologies if that is a ridiculous thing to say. We are hoping it is a dinosaur bone, but any kind of fossil would be amazing, especially for my son who is 10 and LOVES dinosaurs and fossils. We hope you can help and I hope the pictures are okay. Please let me know if you need different photos and thank you all so much for your help and contributions to people.
  11. Theropod bone?

    End of a long bone found in the Judith river of Montana. seems a bit bigger than the normal little chicken/goat sized ornithomimid stuff we usually find - but it’s hollow (and pretty) and can anyone explain the odd markings on the articulating surface? Where tensions would run? thanks for the help (and I love this forum by the way)
  12. Weird Dino bone

    this is a weird one. It seemed like a tiny piece of inner jaw, but it isn’t parallel like I remember those being. It flares out like a shell, but it’s bone. And it has what looks like a digit indentation in the one end. Thoughts? Thanks so much Judith river formation - Montana
  13. Is There Any Way To Tell...

    ...what type of vertebrae these are? Dinosaur park fm. Both found near the same spot but are shaped quite a bit differently. Sorry I don’t have the tools to properly clean them, all I can really do is remove soft sandstone. I’ll separate them by two different posts. The first one has more of an hourglass shape whereas the second one is sort of hexagonal. #1
  14. Two-Fingered Dinosaur Discovered!

    From BBC News : https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-scotland-edinburgh-east-fife-54448253
  15. Book Suggestion

    I've been dabbling in (becoming obsessed with) books on dinosaurs. Now, I don't know what the type I enjoy are called, but I can describe them and have examples, too. I enjoy a narrative style of writing. A story - not necessarily a field guide or pure facts, but understanding the narrator's experiences during a hunt or explanations of the evolutionary process. Exciting, vivid descriptions where I can imagine I'm there. Immersive prose. Even the history of dinosaurs, in that I want to know about the paleontologists who discovered them, the fraud, smuggling, and other illegal conduct that it involved. The disputes and complexities of hunting dinosaurs. I'm interested in how those discoveries and the circumstances therein transformed societies, more or less a perspective that a cultural historian or sociologist would take. And by no means does this have to be limited to dinosaurs; I'm also interested in Ice Age megafauna and sharks. I am currently enjoying The Rise and fall of the Dinosaurs: A New History of a New World, by Steve Brusatte. Based on that book, I've found others that I believe I'll enjoy: The Gilded Dinosaur: The Fossil War Between E.D. Cope and O.C. Marsh and the Rise of American Science, by Mark Jaffe The Lost Dinosaurs of Egypt: The Astonishing and Unlikely True Story of One of the Twentieth Century's Greatest Paleontological Discoveries, by William Nothdurft Assembling the Dinosaur: Fossil Hunters, Tycoons, and the Making of a Spectacle, by Lukas Rieppel Megafauna: Giant Beasts of Pleistocene South America, by Richard A. Fariña End of the Megafauna: The Fate of the World's Hugest, Fiercest, and Strangest Animals, by Ross D.E. MacPhee Megalodon: Hunting the Hunter, by Mark Renz I would appreciate any further suggestions to fill my already overburdened bookshelf. Thank you, Bellamy
  16. Hadrosaur bone

    Hi again everyone Here is Bone likely from Hadrosaur (as far as seller told me) from Lance creek formation . It look like to be a partial section of Metatarsal bone ? what do you think guy??? Thank you in advance !
  17. Potential tooth?

    Any ideas as to what this might be from? Many thanks
  18. I bought a pack of dinosaur bone rubble ( Sauropod allegedly) to make up the min price on a order of rock. Polished up a bit on my flat lap and did a fluorescence scan just on the endogenous fluorescence. Turns out to glow all over the shop and makes a great test slide . The microscope tracks a laser spot across the sample and measures the fluorescence produced at whatever wavelengths you set. The first image is one frame at higher res, the field of view is about 60 microns. but I was testing the frame stitching so the second image is a tiled scan - same res. The original files are 3d too though you can't get that far into a lump of bone with visible light. Any good targets likely to give me fluorescence in the microfossil world?
  19. Hello, I saw these fossils, according to the seller they are dinosaur vertebrae, found in Hell Creek, but he does not mention any species or group of dinosaurs. What I want to know is if they look like dinosaurs to you, either ornithopod or theropod, and if they look like other hell creek fossils you've seen. Thanks in advance.
  20. Kem Kem femur?

    Here's a 45 cm / 17.7 inch long bone from the Kem Kem of Morocco. I don't know what animal this belonged to. Maybe a theropod or crocodilian?
  21. Who’s Toe Bone?

    Found this little guy today. Wondering who it belongs to. Looks almost identical to one of my tyrannosaurid toe bones (pic for comparison) but the tyrannosaurid one is much bigger. e; sorry forgot, Dinosaur park fm
  22. I know it’s Dino - that’s all

    Judith river Dino bone - I’ve got lots of guesses. The bone looks croc ish, the end looks hadrosaur ish, but I’m totally stumped. It’s like an elongated ceratopsian toe claw that got twisted on the bottom Its most definitely not an egg though. Could be a chunkosaur
  23. Dino claw

    Judith river Montana Dino claw. Figured it was a type of raptor claw, but wanted to see if anyone could shed more light on this one. I’m pretty sure it’s not an egg thanks
  24. I hate to do it, but.... egg?

    I’m sure it’s not, but I’m not sure enough not to ask. I read the “is this an egg” post and am still not sure. There’s just a few pieces of the superficial layer left. It’s textured and has a thin outer layer: so, is it an egg? found Judith river formation along the milk river in Montana. thanks for the help
  25. I’ll start off by saying I know nothing about fossils. However, I have someone who has found tons of stuff and I’m trying to figure out if they’re actually anything. They look like rocks to me but as many have pointed out to me so I’ll toss some photos out. Any thoughts are greatly appreciated. I don’t want to post too many photos so I’ll link my photobucket. (hopefully that’s ok)… If not, I can load them a different way. https://app.photobucket.com/u/photobucket1991pb The thing is they’re stating many of these are agatized dinosaur bones, crocodyliform and others. The items came from the Midwest region of the USA and there have been many Indian artifacts located over many years also in this area as well. Again, I think they look like rocks to me.
