  1. Is this a fossilized skull?

    Hello. I got this fossil from a friend. I don't know where he got it or where it came from. About 5.08 centimeters and weighs 10 grams. It is the size of a rodent or baby. Is this a skull? If not, what type of bone is it? Thanks.
  2. This was found on the sand in Myrtle beach South Carolina. Looks like a small vertebrae possibly or a fish skull element, it’s about the size of a dime. Thanks for looking.
  3. Hello, Saw this for sale, wondering if it is legit? Found in Guixhou, part of an old collection from the 60s. Matrix is 12 inch x 6.6 inch x 2.2 inch. Desriptions says no restorations but it has been glued. Thanks for the help
  4. I am posting theses images pulled down off a Facebook fossil ID site because this has me STUMPED. It s a partial skull found in a Nebraska river. But of what?! Eyes and ears are high up and way back on the skull. I'll try to add more pics. Sorry stills from video are blurry. You can see what I believe is the ear canal close to the eye socket in the last photo.
  5. Hello! I recently saw this crocodile skull fossil at a rock shop. I understand that there are many fake croc fossils from Morocco, but I'm having trouble identifying this one. I don't see any obvious signs that are present with bad fakes, but I'm a real novice at fossil identification. Are there any red flags I'm missing? For reference, the skull is approximately 11" x 4".
  6. Irritator neuroanatomy paper

    A new study came out about Irritator where they scanned the skull to get a brain endocast. The paper itself is open access and so are the 3d files! I guess I know what I'll be 3d printing soon... Open access paper https://www.nature.com/articles/s41598-020-66261-w scan files: https://www.morphosource.org/Detail/SpecimenDetail/Show/specimen_id/28531
  7. Labelled as a Mosasaur skull, from Morocco. I suspect it's more partial skull or skull sections rather than the entirety (but still pretty nice) But, anyone able to take a look and give your thoughts on if it looks legit? It'd make a jolly nice centerpiece to my Kem Kem display. If this gets the go ahead as being real, I will order it and a few other bits from the same seller tonight. Quite small, so either a juvenile or a smaller species of Mosasaur? It's the small size that's making me question it. Picture 1 -- the eye socket and other hole match other Mosasaur skulls, so I'm correct that that's the upper skull section? Picture 4 -- this looks like it has teeth sockets? So a jaw. Picture 6 -- Is the longish, segmented bone a row of verts? From Mosasaur or something else in the matrix? If someone could take a look, that would be awesome. Thanks
  8. Hello, I'm new on this forum and I've got a fossil of which I don't know what it is so I thought I'd ask. It's from the Kem Kem. I don't know which formation but it comes from Taouz. Only one side has been preparated. I haven't preparated the other side because it's a pretty thin bone and I'm afraid it might break. It seems like it has broken and been repaired before. Also, there's an Onchopristis tooth attached to it. I think it might be a skull fragment because of it's odd shape. Specifically I think it might be some theropod's left postorbital of which only the inside has been preparated. But there aren't a lot of Kem Kem skulls to compare it to. So it might be something entirely else. Any ideas as to what it could be would be highly appreciated. Top view Front view
  9. Need help identifying

    Found this along the Cape Fear River Basin in Bladen County, North Carolina. I was hunting petrified wood and stumbled across this fossil that resembles a skull. Could someone possibly help me to identify it?
  10. Probably not a fossil

    Hi there can anyone identify the species/age. guessing old due to the condition of teeth. also found in The Cotswolds. ignore back ground clutter of the photos.
  11. Iffy about this because China fossils are often fake, but it's being sold from a collection outside of China (exported in 80s). Described as "restored and glued and protected with B72" 17cm x 15 by 13. Vague location beyond "Cretaceous China" What's the consensus? Fake, composite or the real deal? Edit. Just realised I put in wrong forum. Should be in the is it fake section.
  12. Hi everybody I found a seller who is wanting to sell this Mosasaur matrix-specimen. Initial photo's look ok, but I would like to get your opinions on it. Can ask for detailed photos if needed. This would be my first 'major' item that I would add to my humble collection, so naturally, I'm cautious. Kind Regards Max (Belgium)
  13. Hi everyone, I have the opportunity to enlarge my fossil collection with a mosasaurus skull. However I am still not sure if this one is real or not. The teeth seem real but the skull make me doubt... can someone help me ? best regards Thomas
  14. Please help identify

    Ok these are more pics of the rock I posted already and was confirmed by this forum that it indeed does look like one. I'm focusing more on the mouth, jaw, and facial structure. The nasal cavity. In Hope's of possibly identifying what type of animal this actually is. Thanks for your help.
  15. Please help identify

    Hi I found this rock in desert around pinion hills or lake l.a. area. Looks like has teeth jaw. I first noticed what looked like a nasal cavity..
  16. Found fews monthes ago. Unfortunaly broken in many parts as usual in this outcrop If you don't see it some indications
  17. Bone Skull Identification

    Hi there! I'm hoping you can help me narrow down what animal this skull might be. Most likely from the California area. Thanks in advance!
  18. Fish Heads in North Georgia?

    Hello all! This is my first post in the forum besides the introduction. I’m open to any and all interpretations on this piece. Did I just find a fish head in my backyard? There are tons of fossils (marine and palm) pouring out of the hills on my property. I’m so close to Chattanooga (10 minutes away), I imagine we would share similar geology but I’m unsure and try not to make assumptions. Yay for the scientific method! Found on the surface at the base of a shallow ravine among lots of fossil palm wood, shale outcroppings, and some volcanic(?) glass. Northern Walker co, Georgia, USA. Pictures are as follows... 1) “Right” side 2) “Left” side 3) “Top” 4) “Bottom” with “mouth” facing left 5) “Back” side with “top” at the top of photo 6) “Underside” with “mouth” at bottom left of photo 7) The location behind my driveway that keeps vomiting out fishy bits and petrified wood!
  19. Sorry I’ve been away for a little bit....lots to show y’all but this one first. Found by myself in Caldwell County Texas somewhere in the dirt near the surface is my best narrowing it down for you guys. Probably just ancient bacteria but you gotta dream
  20. Triassic Shale Skull

  22. East Coast Fossils Prep

    Turtle humerus found in a fallen block. From the Pope's Creek Sands of Virginia.
  23. Hey I was hoping someone could help me find a PDF copy of a relatively old paper... Troedsson, G.T. (1924). On Crocodilian Remains from the Danian of Sweden. Lunds Universitets Årsskrift, Ny följd. Avdeling 2, 20, 1–75. Part of it contains the description of a very well-preserved skull of Thoracosaurus "scanicus", which would be very relevant for a research paper I'm working on right now. Thanks in advance! -Christian
