  1. Moroccan Jaw

    Guess who's back I have this piece of I think a left lower jaw from either a crocodile or dinosaur. If I look at the toothsockets they are for round teeth, so crocodile (looking at the size Elosuchus?) or spinosaurid. I am leaning more towards a crocodil. Size: 18x6x2cm Thank you
  2. Big Brook Fossil ID

    Hi everyone, I was at the Big Brook Preserve lately, and in amongst the usual batch of oysters, shark teeth, belemnites, and an ammonite fragment I found one piece which I can't quite identify. I initially thought it was a piece of Enchodus jaw, but when I got it into better light I wasn't so sure. It seems to have definite bone texture to it and I am almost certain it's fossilized, but it doesn't quite match with anything I can think of. (Sorry if the pictures aren't great, I tried the best I could with my desk lamp.) Thanks!
  3. After taking a little time off from hunting due to a new job and holidays I decided to hit the North Sulphur River with a friend. We had a great day. I love the Tylosaur scapula with shark bites. We found a large Xiphactinus washing out and ended up with one left maxilla and three verts from it. We will go back and check that area again.
  4. Ajnabia dinosaur jaw?

    Hello! I see this jaw with teeth from Ouled Abdoun Basin (Morocco). I read about the new Ajnabia descovered this year. What do you think? Real dinosaur or only a fish? Thank you so much.
  5. Today's fossil finds

    Found a bunch of knowns, and then these 2 that have some question. 1st up is a Peccary or modern pig p4 premolar, very worn. A helper from Harry on Sus Scrofa AND a photo of a Peccary p4 from PrehistoricFlorida . Which is this fossil and how differentiated ? Thanks Here is the 2nd.. Looks like a jaw. Maxilla ? Alveoli? Dolphin ? Is this my imagination? Just a rock?
  6. Found in sandy wash in North Phoenix desert after rainfall. Please identify, and if more pictures needed let me know.
  7. Mosasaur end of jaw/snout

    Hello, Is anyone able to narrow this down more specifically? It is listed as end of a Mosasaur jaw---but if someone can narrow it down to a species, that would be great. No teeth unfortunately. I'd quite like it, if a species can possibly be narrowed down becaause then I can display it alongside the teeth. I got one from the same seller, with a tooth that was ID'd on here as Prognathodon which looks similar. But, I figure it best to post it in case this is from a different, similar species. it's from Khouribga, Morocco. Height = 4cm, length=8 cm, width=5cm Thanks
  8. Hi all, I had posted about this tooth years ago and the conclusion back then was that its preservation was too poor for any proper ID. I am hoping that with new information we can at least determine if this is a crocodile or theropod. I discovered today that this tooth preserved some serrations First up, this tooth was acquired from a source with many Mongolian material. He called this an Alioramus tooth but I am not comfortable calling it that yet Secondly, a museum curator (who has handled Mongolian material) examined this tooth in person. He concluded this tooth was indeed Mongolian but he could only say it's a carnivore. Unfortunately, we are unable to determine which part of Mongolia it came from. The crown is 40 mm in a straight line. I have quite a number of croc and theropod teeth and this tooth feels much closer to a theropod than a crocodile both in terms of morphology and size. However, I am not unbiased in my ID, and the shallow jaw fragment is throwing me off. Assuming this is indeed from a tyrannosaur, I'd expect the jaw to be much deeper. Please let me know your honest thoughts, thank you Comparison of tooth to a cf. Daspletosaurus from the Judith River Formation
  9. Early Wolf Fragment

    Good afternoon I found this jaw and tooth fragment along a creek in Central Texas which has produced artifacts from late Pleistocene deposits. I was thinking this was part of a dire wolf jaw I was hoping to get identification thank you
  10. Found this odd 9" long jaw-like fossilized bone in a small creek within the Yorktown formation in Virginia between the York River and I-64. It is atypical of the Baleen Whale and Ice Age mammal bones I have found in the same area. Any help with identifying this specimen would be appreciated.
  11. Hunting at McFadden Beach

    I've found a number of fossilized jaws on this beach that I have no clue of the animal they came from. Hopefully someone here will be able to tell me. We also find many bones of probably bison that hasn't fossilized. So here are a few pics -------- This is what the beach looks like.
  12. Canid jaw

    I found this jaw on the Brazos River a couple of years ago and figured that it is just from a modern dog. Just thought I would try to get a confirmation. I would hate to discount the idea that it is something more interesting like Pleistocene coyote or wolf. It is actually pretty well mineralized. The cancellous bone is hard and not spongy like other modern bones that I find. The carnassial measures 22.2mm x 11.9mm
  13. Enchodus jaw/teeth? And crab claw?

    My 29th trip to Big Brook and I decided to try to get there by an unnamed tributary I found on a map. Got to explore an area with little evidence of usage as shown by the paucity of glass and plastic. Overgrown and thorny and I think I saw my first bear footprint (photo below). Posted below are photos of what I think is an Enchodus jaw and two teeth and also what I think is a partial crab claw but much bigger than any I’ve found before. I also think I found my first arrowhead. Any info greatly appreciated.
  14. unknown jaw pieces

    In a late cretaceous marine formation I found two little pieces of jaw. I would like help in id if possible. One is maybe 2.5 cm in length and the other 3 cm, both have the ragged texture of almost everything from this site. I wonder (hope) if the upper is croc, and if the lower is a small mosasaur. It does not match the typical fish jaws that I find because of the sharp curve to the teeth. Help and ideas will be appreciated.
  15. Theropod jaw piece?

    Sorry about my not sweet picture skills. found Judith river formation of Montana - milk river. obviously a chunk of jaw, but we usually just find little croc jaws. This one is bigger, and the sockets just seemed theropod to me right off the bat. Grabbed a couple tyrannosaur teeth from my daughters display in her room and they fit like a glove. Super scientific, I know - but thoughts? thansk!
  16. Small pleistocene jaw from what?

    Hi all, found this partial jaw a couple of weeks ago and I'm a little lost on what animal species this could have belonged to. If it is a terrestrial mammal it would be pleistocene in age, if it's a cetatean it could be miocene-pliocene in age. I am leaning towards terrestrial origin though. Anybody recognise this jaw fragment?
  17. Mosasaur Jaw

    Hello everyone! I just acquired this piece but the only thing I know is that it's a mosasaur from morocco and it shows the lower jaw and the pterigoid teeth from the upper jaw. Can any mosasaur experts here help me identify the species? I'm thinking of prognathodon maybe?. Also as far as I know it's not fake or composite but would be great if you could confirm it. Thank you very much for your help, very appreciated! Greetings from Spain.
  18. Hello, My 9 year old son found this cool jaw section. It may be coincidental, but beside it was an ankylosaur tooth, partially rooted. We are unsure if it was associated. Perhaps someone will find this interesting or know more. Will post more photos if necessary.
  19. Misidentified Dino Mandible

    Hi I saw this on an auction site. The website claims it is "Dromaesaurus" which does not make sense in my opinion. I was wondering what it is instead? Also, since the teeth are quite different in terms of size and shape I am wondering if it is a composite. Formation: Hell Creek Location: Montana, USA Length: 5.5 inch , 14cm

  22. Jaw/teeth of what?

    Can anyone try to indenting what I think is a jaw fragment with teeth, the large one being broken. Approximately 1/2 by 3/8 inches. I presume it to me modern. Thank you as always
  23. Here is a jaw with two teeth. The entire length of the jaw is about 6.25 inches. The teeth are about 11/16 and 12/16 long and the largest about 9/16 wide at the widest place. They were found on a Florida beach near Fort Pierce. Don't know what the animal would be. Thanks for all the great help.
  24. Partial lower jaw from a mammal

    Hello there, I recently acquired this fossil, which seemed to me a partial lower jaw from a mammal. Can anyone help identify this particular fossil? Also, this mammal appeared to have an impacted third molar just like humans!!
  25. Fossil Jaw FL ?

    Found this suspect item inland Venice, FL. Mostly Pleistocene material within 100 yards: sloth, megs, dugong...Lots of clay and limestone in this site. Some material not totally mineralized. When cleaning item, fiberous material revealed. Unsure if it is a fossil or not. Jaw shaped?
