  1. Sheared Dinosaur Vertebra

    Hi I acquired this vertebra a few weeks back: Im not sure if it’s an iguanodon or polacanthus. Time will tell. I thought it was interesting as it appears to have sheared either prior to or after fossilisation.
  2. Pachycephalosaurus vert

    Hello, Another possible Pachy vert I'd like to add to probably add to my collection--if it is a pachy and not something else. It measures 4.4cm by 4.1 cm and is 4cm thick. It is described as a caudal vert and is from Hell Creek, Powder River County, Montana. Many thanks
  3. Two more verts that I am interested in getting. But, figured I would check before commiting. First one is described as a Pachycephalosaurus tail vert, but looking online, it seems pretty difficult to tell these from other small dinos like Thescelosaurus. So, any thoughts would be great. It is 2.6 cm long and described as being from Late Cretaceous, Lance Creek Formation, Niobrara County, Wyoming. Second is just described as dinosaur vertebrae. Possibly Dacentrurus (which is a type of stegosaur apparently) From Kimmeridge Clay, Dorset. It is 10cm by 9cm by 4.5 cm. Seller says he confident it is a dinosaur and not a plesiosaur because of the open, large bone cells. Hope these look good, Pachycephalosaurus is, along with Baryonyx, my favorite dinosaur. Thanks as always.
  4. Spinosaurid Vertebra?

    I'm looking for a little help identifying this bone from the Kem Kem Beds. It looks to part of a vertebra - it's almost 6 inches long so I immediately thought that narrows it down to being a partial Spinosaurid or Charcharodontosaurus vertebra. After spending ages looking through previous post and searching for detailed pictures of vertebrae, I came to the conclusion it belongs to a Spinosaurid (Spinosaurus or Sigilmassasaurus) because the shape just looks wrong for Carch (although there isn't much to go off for Carch vertebrae). Just looking for some input as to whether I'm correct as I know some members are far more familiar with Kem Kem bones. Would you say this looks like a partial Spino vertebra or is it far too fragmentary to say?
  5. Found in Alabama USA

    Hi All! I am brand new here. I have had a life-long interest in all things archaeology/paleontology/geology and was always digging in the dirt as a kid. But I am a veterinarian by trade and have not a clue about any of these awesome things that so intrigue me, lol. The fossil pictured below is one I found on my parents' land (where I grew up) probably 30 years ago. I found it in a little valley area where a creek runs between two fairly large hills. Anyone have any idea what I have here? Thanks a bunch! Michelle
  6. Aurora, NC Vertebra

    I found this vertebra several years ago in the fossil pit next to the Aurora Fossil Museum. I initially classified the vertebra as whale, but as I go back through my collection, I am beginning to doubt my identification. After doing my own research I think I have been able to narrow it down to Odontocete, but I was curious if there is a way to narrow it further. Perhaps dolphin? But again, these are only guesses. The pattern on one side of the vertebra is very interesting; you can see it in the second photo.
  7. Hi everybody I found another seller who is wanting to sell this fossil - about 80 cm (Mosasaur vertebrae). Decent price, but maybe a bit to good to be true. Because I'm very new to the 'bigger specimens'-collecting (only bigger items from mostly quaternary/tertiary), I would like to get your opinions on it. Can ask for further detailed photos if needed. Kind Regards Max (Belgium)
  8. I was responding to a post on TFF on FB about a vertebra someone had found at Post Oak Creek in Texas. I thought it was a snake vertebra since I have found several as I have hunted shark teeth there for several years. I went through my box of snake vertebra to take a picture to compare. As I pulled them out and lined them up, one vert did not line up at all and is clearly fossilized and is very similar to the one he posted that was identified as possibly being Coniasaur. Can anyone tell if that it truly what I have here or something else.
  9. Strange Dino Bone

    Hey all, I found some new fossils on a surface collecting expedition last weekend near Hays, Alberta. Not sure what level of identification can be done for these because of how incomplete they are but anything helps. The first bone gets really thin near the top, not really sure what type of bone it might be. Part of an ilium maybe? Never found anything like it before. Had to glue it back together. Second one is a vertebra centrum I found not far from the first bone. Could belong to the same animal.
  10. Fossil ID Request

    Good afternoon everyone! I believe this is part of a vertebra that was found in the material dug during the excavation of a big, deep lake in my community. Even though it is broken, I hope someone can help me in identifying what animal it comes from. It weighs 3.8 ounces. Thank you in advance for your help!
  11. Vertebra "in situ"

    From the album Fossil Collection

  12. Big Iguanodon Vertebra

    I’ve been sorting out some old fossils during the lockdown and just had a stand made for this big iguanodon vertebra. The stand was made by Friargate Forge in Preston. Before To this It’s hard to photo and prep was really difficult.
  13. Need Vertebra ID'd...

    Greetings, This is a vertebra found in the same vicinity as my last post, Kansas River, South Side, just North of Desoto, Kansas. It is very "sticky" when wet finger is applied. No odor when flame tested. About 2 months ago, I found this in the Kansas River, under a submerged stump at the end of the sandbank. It was found in conjunction with another vertebra that I posted separately. The location was on the South side of the River just north of DeSoto, Kansas. As it started to dry out in the dry indoors of winter (despite the humidifier on my heating system), it began to flake apart...the surface patina that is. Measures: 4 1/4" x 3 1/4" =10.8cm x 8.2cm I cannot guess age. Any ideas? Thank you all kindly in advance.
  14. I.d. vertebra

    Hi i found this on one of my many adventures in desert near a quartz vein in the buttes. I was told it looked like a vertebra but as I'm really learning. I no very little about fossils and my associates no far less then me so. Counting on y'all. Thanks
  15. Hi all, I had a fairly productive first outing to Westmoreland State Park but I have no idea what any of the fossils I found are. I am happy to provide close-ups of any of the individual fossils, and in addition to the photos here, I posted some to imgur to get around the size restriction here. https://imgur.com/gallery/2uIedQS Thanks for your help!
  16. Hello everyone so we have this Vertebra here from Taouz, Morocco, KemKem. It's just described as a Dinosaur Vertebrae, no further ID. Really not sure what to make of it. Is it a Franken-Vertebra? Just not good enough prepped? A big cluster of glue and different bone fragments? Just very bad weathered? It is at a reasonable price I'm willing to pay even if it turns out the be just a Franken-Vertebra while I work on it. Just to get some training on prepping. But I would love to hear if it is worth to spend any money on it. And while we're at it: And ID possible? Is it Dinosaur? Maybe Theropod? Or Croc? Or just not possible to ID? Unfortunately there are no other pictures available. Size is 91 mm x 76 mm (3.58 inches x 2.99 inches) Any help is welcome. Thank you!
  17. Vertebra ID

    Hello brand new member hello everyone! I have been out collecting about 10 times this year in SW Florida found this today, was pretty excited to pull this out of a creek off the peace River . It's about 75mm wide and 75mm tall (3") it's pretty light weight for it's size . Thank you if you can help identify.
  18. Wanted to share my latest acquisition. Decades ago a friend of mine found this triceratops dorsal vertebra in Montana. There was evidence of post-mortem predation by a nanotyrannus. A tooth broke off and embedded in the centrum. Enjoy!
  19. Theropod caudal vertebra?

    Hello, this spring break I found this vertebra in late Campanian sediments from southern Coahuila, Mexico. It comes from the Late Campanian, Cerró del Pueblo Formation, around 73-71 million years. This was found along with marine and terrestrial fossils. It is about 1 cm long (3/8) of an inch, 1 cm in width, and 1.1 cm in height. I want to know what type of dinosaur this vertebra belonged to and whether it’s a caudal vertebra or not. My thoughts on this specimen at the moment, is that it’s probably a caudal (tail) vertebra from a small theropod dinosaur, something like a dromeosaur or a troodontid. I hope some dinosaur experts on this forum can give me more insight on this small vertebra.. Side view Other side Front view Bottom Top view
  20. Oxford Clay Vertebra

    Hello, I bought this vertebra today at the Oxford Fossil and Mineral Show. The seller did not know what it belonged to, only that it was found in the Oxford Clay in Orton, Peterborough. Any help on what this came from would be greatly appreciated, thank you.
  21. Cetacean vertebra Update

    I found more parts of the, believed to be, cetacean vertebra. I found two of the coastal facets (i just call them wings) in the same sight, an so far im still having trouble finding and goo reference photos of vertebrae that have this feature, any ideas? [WinZip file deleted]
  22. Big White River Vertebra - What is it?

    My stepson Josh found this today while hunting in the White River Formation (Colorado) - it's a big vertebra that was sticking out of a hillside. This formation is Eocene-Oligocene. Can anyone help ID this?
  23. Partial Sauropod neural process?

    Hi, I was wondering if the id on this piece can be confirmed. It is said to be the top end of the neural process of a Sauropod vertebra. The fossil is quite heavy and large at 24cm and it comes from the Wessex Formation in the Isle of Wight. Thanks in advance!
  24. What vertebra is this? Whale?

    Can anyone identify this vert for me? I’m guessing some type of whale, but that’s as much as I can even guess. It was found in Black Beard creek in Liberty county, Georgia
