  1. Help on Claw ID

    Hello everyone, I found this nice claw in South Dakota over the summer and have yet to find a definitive match for its identity. It's about a centimeter and a half long.
  2. Unidentified Jaw, Mammal?

    Hello everyone. Ive got a tough one for you guys. So I have a fossil jaw with a single canine tooth that I’ve had in my collection for a couple years. It was a gift from my boyfriend, so no locality. I tried to have it identified on the fossil forum Facebook group when I first got it, but no one knew what it was for sure. I had a paleontologist post a response and this is what he had to say: ”Hi Marielle Krenzelak, I'm a palaeontologist but I'm not entirely sure what you have there. I'm not concerned with the material that others don't think is bone. It looks to me like the canine tooth (the only tooth you have) is broken. I think the jaw is mammalian based on its overall morphology. I don't think that it is a horse, based on the shape of the symphysis (area where the left and right jaws would have connected) and its position relative to the canine. It is interesting that it has a long post-canine diastema (the smooth area after the canine and before the alveoli, or holes, where the next teeth would have gone). I also think the other suggestions (boar and goat) are also incorrect, again based on the length of the diastema and the shape of the symphysis. Finally, the age constraint someone gave you of less than 20,000 years is not supportable. I've worked on mammals back to ~ 55,000,000 years that have similar preservation. Barring that, I'm just not sure what it is you have there.” So I thought I’d try again on this forum to see if anyone has any idea what it might be? I know we have many experts and actual paleontologists on here. If anyone could help me out, it would be greatly appreciated. Here is a link to the post about it on Facebook in case anyone is in the fossil forum Facebook group and wants to take a look at it: https://www.facebook.com/groups/135008766530423/permalink/1768488489849101?sfns=mo Thank you for any thoughts or insights you have to share!
  3. Cenozoic Giant Reptile Material?

    In recent years, I have become just as interested, if not more so, in non-dinosaurian prehistoric large reptiles than in dinosaurs themselves. Especially giant reptiles of the Cenozoic. Right now one of my prize pieces is a partial Megalania vertebra from Australia. However, I would like to acquire more large Cenozoic reptile fossils in the future, such as sebecosuchians, palaeophiids, giant crocodiles and giant tortoises. What material of this kind have TFF members seen available commercially? Would also like to have information on Triassic non-dinosaur reptiles. And Palaeosaniwa, Hell Creek's Komodo dragon.
  4. Hell Creek Fish (?) Jaw Section

    Hey everyone, I found this little jaw section at a microsite in North Dakota's Hell Creek formation this past summer and I'm finally getting around to posting about it. I believe it's fish, possibly gar, but I'm not sure. I'd like to know people's opinions. It's about 1.3 centimeters long. Thanks, Noel
  5. Unknown dinosaur? bone

    Hi paleoguys! Some years ago a friend of mine found on the Isle of Wight-the UK (dinosaur coast/Barremian age) what seems to be a reptile bone. It looks like a transverse process or something like that. We have no idea. We'd be very grateful if you enlight us and solve this mystery. More picture to come...
  6. Triassic tooth from Muschelkalk-Keuper

    Hello does anyone know what's tooths they belong too? they are from border Muschelkalk-Keuper, Germany.
  7. Hello! I am looking for a good keichousaurus for my collection. After a legal search I found these two. One is of a 28cm adult reptile, prepared with hand tools and I think in ventral position. The other is a juvenile reptile prepared with acid and 16cm hand tools and in dorsal position. Which one do you think is better? position and preparation ... Thank you!!
  8. Fossil fish or marine reptile?

    This fossil was found last week by a worker of the quarry. I haven’t seen this kind of fossil before and is definitely an uncommon one around here. The fossil is not in a really good condition. I’ll post two pictures hoping I can find some help from you guys. The largest teeth are almost 1 inch long. Thanks a lot!
  9. Crocodile Tooth?

    Hi all, Just wanted to ask around and see if anyone had an answer for this. I purchased this tooth, labeled as an extinct crocodile species - Crocodylus/Kentisuchus Spenceri. Upon doing some research, I find myself confused - Wikipedia says that this species has only been found in England, France & Ukraine. My specimen is from Morocco. If it isn’t the species I mentioned, what is it? Specimen is just over an inch long. Thanks, Nate
  10. Bull Canyon Formation

    Here are some of my Bull Canyon Formation fossils from New Mexico.
  11. Unknown tooth/claw

    I saw this item for sale. The dealer calls it "unknown tooth or ck=law. Dino? Sadly, no provenance information is offered. It appears to be agatized. There are a few cracks that may have been repaired, but it doesn't appear frankenstinian. What are folks' thoughts on legitimacy as well as ID? thanks
  12. So I got this fossil recently. My best guess being a Mosasaur tooth since they didn’t ID the fossil. So I kinda just wanna know since you guys have helped me a lot before, if this is a actual fossil and if it is, what exactly it belongs to. If you need a better image or a different angle to better judge it, go ahead and ask.
  13. Bone from upper jurassic

    Hi, I've found this bone in France kimmeridge clay. It's marine deposit so the majority of vertebrates are marine reptiles like pliosaur, plesiosaur, crocodile, ichthyosaur etc.. I have some ideas about the determination of this bone but I do not prefer to influence you. Many thanks for your help. Regards Carbon.
  14. Vertebrae ID please

    Hi, This is my first reptile skeletal find, and I'm absolutely thrilled, especially since I didn't expect to find much at the end of the summer. It's from between staithes and mulgrave. I know they're vertebrae X2, however I'm not sure what exactly. They're also in amongst what could be other bits of bone, the top bit looks like some hard outer exoskeleton (scales/shell?) Although it could equally just be the mudstone concretion. Any ideas?
  15. Please help to identify.

    Hi all my name is Jeff. Long time listener, first time caller. I found this while walking the Cuiver River in central Lincoln co. MO. Would definitely appreciate some input!
  16. Kem Kem bone Id

    hi there I could use some assistance with a pair of bone IDs. They're Cretaceous, reptile, from the Kem Kem beds of Morocco. Any help would be appreciated. I think the smaller of the two is a tibia? The second bone is in a reply to this post
  17. Mosasaur bone clump

    From the album Marine reptiles and mammals

    A cool Moroccan mosasaur bone pile I acquired, sadly the matrix is so soft the piece broke in transit, but thankfully the splits missed all but 1 smaller bone. I'm considering just removing them from the matrix, and maybe mounting them in the same positions again, but I haven't decided yet. *more info to follow
  18. Possible Snake Head

    Hello, Found this possible snake head on a beach North of St Augustine. Looking for information. Thank You. Regards, Chris
  19. Hello everyone! So this fossil is being sold in the U.S. as part of an estate. It is labeled as compsognathus, but I am certain that it is not. It looks to me like some sort of marine reptile out of China. So I am wondering what it is, and if it is genuine. Thank you!
  20. Cretaceous Marine Not a Clue

    Have been prepping out a few bits and pieces encased in matrix to see if anything interesting. This is from the Toolebuc formation in Central Queensland Australia. The formation is Albian about 100 million years old. My best guess is this is a skull piece (partial quadrate) the bit the jaw hinges on from a marine reptile. There appears to be three teeth socket points looking at what I assume to be the bottom. The problem with that idea is they are only 5 to 10 mm deep and too close to the hinge point. The specimen is only a partial bone but hoping complete enough for someone to recognise to the general species from photos. Thanks for all feedback in advance. I may need to retake some photos from slightly different angles. Mike
  21. Ichthyosaur paddle bones

    From the album Holzmaden

    These are four Ichthyosaur paddle bones and another Ichthyosaur bone from the lower Jurassic from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden. The Ichthyosaur paddle bones are about 5 cm big so not too small. There are also a lot of belemnites on the plate. Because of them the prep work was kinda time intensive. It took about six hours to reveal everything. Here are some more pictures:
  22. Fossilized Egg?

    I found this sometime in the 1970’s State: New York, County: Suffolk, Township: Brookhaven, Hamlet: Rocky Point on Broadway Beach on the shore of Long Island Sound. The fossil weighs about one ounce. The hole was there when found, through it there is hollow space, but I can also see that there is some structure or substance inside.
  23. mosasaurus or what ?

    i can only put one picture at a time
  24. Hello, could you please tell me what kind of mosasaur teeth are these? Thank you very much.
