  1. Scute? Texas

    From North of San Antonio in Cretaceous Zone. Could be a leverite but this one looked a bit weird. Pretty small.
  2. Good morning, please take a look at this artifact I discovered a few weeks ago and help me identify if this is something other than a rock with unique features and patterns. I have spent FAR too much time closely inspecting it and I'm convienced that it is something other than a naturally forming rock. Altough I'm not an expert in geology, I have collected thousands upon thousands of artifacts which is one of the reasons this one clearly stood out to me. The color, shape, pattern, and texture is very distinct. Please note that this artifact is not whole and has been broken in half. The photos are top down. What I see is a fossilized creature curled up in what could be an egg or borrow. It looks to be reptillian based off the patten of what could be the underbelly on one side of the fossil and the shape of the what I believe woud be the snout of the head (again it has been partially broken off). Also, there seems to be a long tail that wraps around the circumfrence of the unit and centered in the middle is the snout/head. When carefully observing the interior of where the break occurred, there apprears to be the spinal column (color differentation) originating from the head that may have lead to the torso as well as part of the torso. Lastly, there appears to be some digits to a claw (encircled). If anybody want to contact me for additional details, please don't hesitate.
  3. I'm seeking feedback on what exactly is this bone-looking structure. It seems to closely resemble the tip of an alligator's toes. Do you think this is something that could happen to naturally forming rock? I cropped in closely to the image so it can be clearly seen. It measures 8mm from top to tip. I would sincerely appreicate any expert insight into what this could be.
  4. Florida - Peace River

    Hi everyone, I have some stuff that was found in the Peace River, Florida. I think I have an idea what these are, but confirmation would be great! First off, a horse tooth? Could anything more specific be identified? It's 2" Then there's this, and I think it's alligator scute. 1 inch Lastly, alligator tooth partial? 1 inch long
  5. Hey guys, here's a fossil hunt I did with my Dad. We absolutely crushed it with a fossilized dire wolf tooth, a huge bison vertebra, two extinct Florida camel vertebras, a gorgeous extinct peccary tooth, some Giant Armadillo scutes and a few other things to boot. Hope you enjoy!
  6. Hi all, this is my first time posting so please be gentle. I found this in my back yard and I am just looking for help with an ID. In Katy Texas, just west of Houston. It's small, less than 2" total but the fragment is around 1 inch. It's in a sandstone matrix (a couple of geologists told me it is "young" sandstone, whatever that means). I am new to Texas and not familiar with the history here. Based on Googling, it looks to me like maybe a Pleistocene-era alligator claw or possibly snapping turtle claw. It does not look like a tooth, alligator or otherwise. it has a groove running down the side (probably down both sides) and isn't really conical. the only ridge is on the outer/top part (the curved edge). Just curious about what it might be and hoping someone with more expertise can assist. Thanks in advance for any insights you may have!
  7. Here is the link to an open source book published by the Calvert Marine Museum. Skeletal Anatomy of Alligator and Comparison with Thecachampsa, by George F. Klein. 2016, 75 pp. Annotated photographic atlas. (Print copy is also available for purchase.) During the Miocene epoch, large predatory crocodilians lived in a warmer southern Maryland. Their fossilized remains are now found along Calvert Cliffs. By providing a detailed annotated photographic atlas of the skeleton of the living Alligator, this work will help identify the fossilized bony remains of Thecachampsa - the marine crocodilian that shared its habitat with the likes of megalodon. http://www.calvertmarinemuseum.com/276/CMM-Publications. Also, here's the link to the museum's fossil club newsletter archive: http://calvertmarinemuseum.com/204/The-Ecphora-Newsletter. I am not affiliated with this institution, but am simply sharing some links I have on file. Enjoy.
  8. Found this odd fossil on Myrtle Beach 2-18-2020. Never found one like this. Personal opinion it resembles a crocodile tooth that broke, and point recessed into the larger portion. However it is very solid, and there seem to be no seams to confirm this (and it was a wild guess on my part anyway). Hopefully one of you has a more educated opinion. I'd love to hear from you if so. Thanks for looking and happy hunting.
  9. Need help

  10. Crocodilian tooth

    From the album Macro Florida Fossils

  11. Fossil Armor

    From the album Macro Florida Fossils

    I think this is crocodilian
  12. Not sure if this is a tooth? Looking for help. Thanks in advance!
  13. What type of animal bone

    Discovered this past weekend, very unsure of what creature it used to make move??
  14. Alligator tooth fossil??

    Hi! I found this on the beach off the coast of South Carolina! I think it is an alligator tooth or at least some kind of tooth and would like some help identifying it please!
  15. Been hunting teeth for some time now and I ran across these two things on my last trip that has me scratching my head. Any help in identifying would be appreciated! The items are #1 and #2. The last pic is of all the teeth me and the family dug. Thanks
  16. Found these fossils at a construction site in Venice Florida. Can I get some help identifying? It would be much appreciated. As a side note I found the huge Megalodon there as well. I think one is an alligator scale? One is a joint of some sort? And one is the tail bone of a dugong? And one is a jawbone with teeth ( feline )? What say all? thanks in advance
  17. Leidyosuchus tooth

    From the album Judith River fm. Fossil Finds

    This little tooth likely comes from the alligatoroid Leidyosuchus. However I could be wrong and I'm basing that idea off of it being the only crocodilian other than deinosuchus described from the formation.
  18. Hi. I wanted help identifying a fossil tooth found in Florida. My son and I found it on the Peace River North of Wachula. We were sifting gravel from the middle of the river last week. I thought it to be alligator, but someone noted the ridge was distinctive enough that they didn't believe the tooth to be as such. It is slightly larger than an inch long. I can provide other pictures. Thank you Ken
  19. Alligator "Molar" Tooth

    Brachychampsa montana Late Cretaceous (Maastrichtian~ 66 mya) Lance formation These teeth were found in the rear of the animal's mouth and aided it in crushing the hard shells of its prey.

  22. Venice, Fl Turtle or Gator?

    I found an interesting fossil on the beach in Venice, FL. Believe it is either a Turtle scute or an alligator osteoderm. Can anyone help confirm and tell me anything interesting about it? Thanks for the help! Rob Convex side Concave Side Edge view
  23. Alligator Tooth

    Location according to seller Tampa Bay FL. Item showed up on popular auction site. Curious as to what you make of the ID? Thanks! Age: Pleistocene Species: Alligator Formation: phosphate Mind
  24. Hello, I found what appears to be a split tooth on Casey Key, Florida. It's about 5/8 x 3/8" with a nice wood grain color and shine. I have attached 5 photos, front and back. Can you ID it from what is left of the tooth? Thanks in advance!
