  1. Weird Gator or not?

    Hi Everyone, I'm new here. My name is Michael. It's nice to meet all of you! I don't have any experience in Geology, But i was at the bottom of Masada in Israel, In a place believed to be the city of Gomorrah, from Sodom and Gomorrah, and i found what i thought was a petrified Boot. And only when i did a little more discovery did i see skeletal bones etc. It is very Heavy, about kg Anyone know what it is?
  2. Hi I'm looking for my first tooth for my "bird ancestor" collection. I'm interesting about this one from one dakotaraptor steini. It's very small: 0.6cm. What do you think about this tooth ?
  3. Last 2 McKittrick bird bones

    Here are the other two in the series. One is a long limb bone, but the other maybe a tarsometatarsal? The shorter of the two is approximately 2.25 in in length.
  4. hi all, I got these as part of a collection. The ID card simply said "bird bone" from the Rancho LaBrea Fm, McKittrick. Honestly, birds are not my forte, but I'm trying, given all the bird material that I have collected from Lee Creek. But I digress... I could use some help with the ID of 4 bones. The two here are long limb bones, approximately 3.5in to 4in in length. As for an ID, that's all I can guess. Help! thanks!
  5. Hell creek small theropod bone?

    I was recently going through some old finds from last summer when I came across this little bone, it is partially hollow and has very porous bone structure. that's why I assume this bone came from a very small theropod. It shares some resemblance to a bambiraptor coracoid as shown in the last picture and is almost exactly the same size. the bone measures 11mm wide in the first picture
  6. Here is a really interesting bone. Despite being pretty small and a partial bone, this would be an excellent addition because you can get a great look inside of it. This is the type of bone that lends itself to some serious teaching I think. It is from Garfield County in Montana, Hell Creek Formation. 1 7/8" x 5/8" x 5/8". It is small and partial but it appears to be in excellent condition. It is listed as a raptor bone and my limited knowledge says that is a possibility. It sure looks like a theropod of some sort (bird, troodontid maybe I do not know). I would love to hear any and all thoughts on this one !!
  7. Was having a look at a few Kem Kem bones for sale and i came across this. It is a long bone at 26.8cm in length, looks quite thin with both ends intact (though one end has a different colouration to the rest of the bone). Wanted to get some thoughts as i originally thought this could be from a Pterosaur or a small non-avian theropod, but it seems a bit different to the Pterosaur femurs i have seen (which is what the fossil is being sold as). I am thinking it could be a leg bone from a bird? but i am no expert on Cretaceous birds. Can i ask for some opinions on this bone? thanks in advance.
  8. primitive bird fossils

    I really really love primitive birds and would love to see your primitive bird fossils, with scale if possible I only got a couple myself but would love your opinions!
  9. Colleagues, I was collecting on the shoreline of Purse park in Maryland, a beautiful site along the Potomac river. I'm hoping you can help me with your thoughts as to the identification of a few small fossils. The ruler is in centimeters. 1. The first photo appears to be a scute. Is this from a crocodile? 2-4. The next three photos are of a very small fossil which appears to be a double crowned tooth. The base is flat and the crowns are cuboid in shape and flat on top without any ridges. ideas? 5. The final photo is a tiny bone. I'm comfortable that it is fossilized and not modern. It appears to have the shaft of a long bone, or potentially a phalange, but the terminal surface is almost similar to that of an ear bone or the zygomatic arch of a bird skull. I'm a veterinary pathologist and I'm at a loss. I would welcome your guidance.
  10. Fossil IDs (if possible)

    I like collecting fossils, but I usually am not sure what my finds are. Please, could you help me identify these fossils? I noted down some possibilities down below. 1 - could be a late Albian ammonite from central Serbia, but I am not entirely sure. Acquired in Serbia. 2 - Found at Southerndown, Wales. Could it be a tree root or something in the region of that? It has a cross-hatched pattern if you look closely. 3 & 4 - A shell I found at Penarth, Wales but I am not entirely sure what it is called. 5 - A bone I found in the mud at Tites Point, Severn, Gloucestershire. maybe a birds? 6 - Some shells I found in mudstone at Charmouth, England. Was found in the same stone as 7. 7 - wood I found at Charmouth? It was very crumbly and delicate. 8 - A Trilobite fragment possibly, Llanfawr quarries, Wales. 9 - A bivalve I found in Southerndown. Not sure what it is though.
  11. Micro Bones

    From the album Judith River fm. Fossil Finds

    I have no idea what these tiny bones belong to. They could be bird, mammal, small reptile or an amphibian. These were found at the same microsite as the Troodon tooth. If you have any indication as to what these could be let me know.
  12. Fun with 3D Printing Fossils

    So recently my father bought a 3D printer and we've been experimenting printing some cool fossils for a while now. It's a really cool technology. Though it can take a while to print a piece the results are really quite cool. A life size Archaeopteryx can take a few days to print if you don't keep printing during the night. Finishing up the prints afterwards can also take a bit of time. Cleaning off all the supports and sanding down rough surfaces can be quite the process. Then there's painting depending on the desired result of course. There are actually a lot of nice things that can be found for download on the internet. Though many of these models still require a bit of digital cleanup before they could be printed. So here are a number of the painted, unpainted and half painted results. Most of the printed stuff is dinosaur. Photo of the 3D printer and the just finished print of a juvenile Edmontosaurus lower jaw. And here's the same Edmontosaurus jaw print half painted again with the real fossil in mirror image next to it. I scanned the original bone that I then mirrored digitaly so that I could print out the other side of the jaw. Allosaurus hand claw. Clidastes Mosasaur quadrate bone. Skull of the "Prosauropod" Massospondylus. Holotype right lower jaw of Owenodon, an Iguanodontid. 1/5th scale Nanotyrannus skull. The Cleveland specimen. One of my favourites. The Eichstatt Archaeopteryx specimen. The right side skeleton of the baby Parasaurolophus "Joe". Printed at 1/5th scale. Right humerus and pedal phalanges printed at life size. Most of the fossil prints are for my collection. But my dad also wanted a few cool things which I painted for him. Skulls of Dodo and Australopithecus Taung Child. Most are painted roughly to look like their real counter parts.
  13. A claw from Hell Creek

    I bought this claw a little while ago, for close to nothing. Still waiting for the item to arrive. Not sure what it is from though. It was dug up in Hell Creek. The claw and bone measure about an inch in length in total. Anyone who would have a qualified guess?
  14. Possible bird skull?

    Hello everyone, this is my first thread on this forum. I found this community while doing some research about a possible bird skull fossil. The piece was found by me in the Sea of Lima, Peru, in the 2018 summer. I can take more pictures if needed. I see myself a peack and some eyes sockets ..
  15. Help With Green River Bird Leg

    I purchased a fossil collection several years ago that contained a beautifully preserved bird leg with some feathers preserved. It is was collected in the Green River Formation of Southwestern Wyoming. I know very little about fossil birds and am hoping someone on the Forum might be able to narrow the ID down to what family of bird it might be. Any Help will be greatly appreciated.
  16. What are these

    I found these in California by the Oregon border. I picked up a bunch of rocks to polish and noticed the vertebrae. They look like plioscene bird embryos. Is that correct?
  17. First off, I am a complete beginner to fossils and also this forum and I am hoping someone with more experience can help me ID this possible fossil I found. I found it at Glen Afric in New Zealand and I know there have been some penguin species found before. Does anyone know what this could be? Its a large piece of rock, +- 20kg (40lb) and was a pain to get back to the car so hope it is something! Thanks!
  18. I feel so silly putting in the tags, because I have no idea what scientific terms I would use... I'm sorry for my ignorance! I found this rock in a streambed in Shasta County, California, USA. I will try to attach the best pictures I can; unfortunately the only camera I have available is my phone, equipped also with a magnifying application. As you see, from comparison with my hand, it is very small. Perhaps the size of, or a bit larger than, a quail egg. Please excuse me if I've done this incorrectly, or if there is some additional information I should provide. I thank you so much for your time and any input!
  19. A bird or a mammal bone ID ?

    Hi guys ! Can anyone help me out with this ? I found two days ago at my Marl stone Quarry a bone and I don't know if it's from a mammal or from a bird? The lake as you know is from the Miocene epoch.I will send you pics now,it's quite small bone....It looks like metacarpal or metatarsal bone to me..
  20. Is this a fossilized egg?

    Can anyone tell me what this is?
  21. First bird fossils

    I just bought my first Avian fossils. Pleistocene bird bones for North Florida. The largest bone is just shy of 3 inches.
  22. Fossilized egg

    Can someone please tell me if this is an actual fossilized egg / it’s hollow - and if so, where would I sell it or get it authenticated?
  23. Chinese bird with preserved (?)lungs

    This is rather interesting - a specimen of the bird Archeorhynchus spathula (STM7-11) from the Lower Cretaceous Jiufotang Formation (northeastern China) has been shown to have probable evidence of preserved lungs Wang, X., O’Connor, J. K., Maina, J. N., Pan, Y., Wang, M., Wang, Y., Zheng, X., & Zhou, Z. (2018). Archaeorhynchus preserving significant soft tissue including probable fossilized lungs. Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, 201805803. Wang etal 2018 Archaeorhynchus lungs.pdf
  24. Is this a Fossil?

    I walked for some way across Southport beach in Northwest England, after the tide had gone out. I had originally gone there to try to locate some interesting items like shells or stones and I picked up a hand-full. However, I had forgotten about my trip and my finds, until a few weeks ago when I relocated the items. This particular item (pictured) is one that caught my attention the most. On close inspection, the item contains many holes; is dark grey in colour and has white stripes that appear to embrace the stone/fossil. Recently, my imagination has told me that this item could be a fossilized bird embryo, since I can see slight indications of skeletal bird-leg appearance, with perhaps some kind of foot - and this appears as the white stripes embracing the dark grey. However, I actually have no educated clue as to what this item is but I will be grateful for some help towards its' identification.
  25. Neanderthal child got eaten by prehistoric bird
