  1. Astragalus?

    Hello, I found this bone in my usual spot in Portugal. The formation it's marine from Miocene period.I never found a bone like this before. Maybe a astragalus? And if yes, from what can be? The fossil have 2cm. Eu also found a phalanx. My first in this spot. From what can be?
  2. Gift from Morocco!

    Got this from a friend awhile ago and forgot about it !
  3. My husband went to our special place with out me!!! I don’t know any more about the bone in the comments, than this picture, he just text me these pictures and can’t talk right now because he’s driving. I’ll find out later I guess, it’s still cool. Anyone know what lived there that it may belong to??
  4. Hello, I've got 13 fossils of which I'm not sure what they are. All fossils are bought, which is why I can't say much about the geological layer and location they're from. I used a ruler with inches and cm sizing. I don't really have to know the 100% exact specimen (please feel free to give the details though if you have them), I would like to have a general idea of what I'm looking at. 1. Sold to me as bamboo, not sure if it is: 2. Sold as a waterlily, its a cross-section: 3. same story as up. I don't know what it actually is: 4. looks like a lizard foot, but it's probably coral. 5. Some kind of crazy stain?? 6. This is obviously a tooth of a carnivore, I would like to know if its mammalian or from a dinosaur. For this one, I would love to know the specifics but shoot away with your ideas on it. 7. Looks like bone, mammalian? Is it even bone? 8. Another piece of supposed to be bone. 9. Bone/wood? who knows? 10. looks like its bone, but really don't know.. 11. Looks like something from the sea... 12. Could be a tooth of a herbivore, could also be anything else. 13. The last of the bunch, its sold to me as coprolite but it doesn't really look like it. I would love to know your ideas on this collection. I am an amateur collector and I can identify some fossils/stones but for these, I really need your help. Thanks in advance.
  5. Hello, I found this worn bone fragment in SW Florida and it has some distinct marks, separating it from my typical tumbled bone. It's approximately 2 1/2" x 1". It has 2 raised areas on one side and what appears to be a worn down tooth surface on the tip or enamel?? Hopefully these marks will be enough to ID. Thanks guys & Gals!
  6. This egg was said to be dug up from Ganzhou. It has two bones on the matrix, do you think it’s genuine? If real, how could this happen? A dinosaur (the mother?) was buried with the egg?
  7. Rib Bone?

    Would anyone know what this is from? It looks like a rib bone and it is at least 17 inches long. It is from Post Oak Creek in Sherman, TX. Thank you!
  8. Dimensions: 185mm long Location: Atlas mountains Jurassic outcrops, Morocco I'm having trouble identifying this partial fossil bone. It's only smallish piece with some significant old broken sections but it still has a pretty distinctive blade-like shape and the internal structure visible at the end breaks is interesting. My amateur impression is that it's too straight for a rib, it's asymmetric so not a chevron, so I was thinking maybe a fibula, or perhaps an ischium or scapula. Any input welcome.
  9. Dimensions: 90mm long ; 60mm base to top of processes Location: Ifezouane Formation, Taouz, Kem Kem Basin, South Morocco After a lot of research I'm confident this is a cervical rib (something I didn't even know existed previously). I'd also take a guess that it's crocodilian rather than from a dinosaur. If it is crocodilian then my impression is that this would have been a pretty substantial croc. Based on some crude extrapolation from an image of a crocodilian skeleton I'm coming up with a figure of something like 5m from nose to tail. I understand that there were plenty of crocodilian species in the Cretaceous Kem Kem but hopefully maybe someone could confirm if at least my identification is correct, and maybe point me in the direction of a croc expert if there is one.
  10. help with pelvis bone

    Hello! I have found this bone along the road near a creek after a flood in Lancaster County, PA. I think it is a pelvis bone, but not sure from who. It is 15 inches across. Thank you for any help.
  11. Hi Guys, I was looking at this bone fragment and didn't thought much of it until I notice it's symmetry. Not only that but as per the picture below it has two protrusions (exact same shape and size on each side. Looks like teeth (or some kind of horn?) was present at some point. Let me know your thoughts. Alex
  12. Help...is this even a fossil?

    Any info on what this might be, or ideas for further research. Acquired from person in Texas who had no information on where it was found. The reddish brown area and paler surround are a totally different material than the main part, and the 2 smaller protrusions look similar to bone matrix, if that''s the correct term. Thanks for any input. PS: After adding 2 pics, I deleted them, but when trying to upload new picture, pop up says I am only allowed 3.9m, and will not let me add another pic. (I may not be smart enough to use this forum...)
  13. What is this?

    Honestly, I do not know anything about fossils. I just want to know, what is this thing that my grandfather gave me years ago? Is it some kind of bone? Wood? It's about 12 cm long, heavy, and stone like.
  14. Mosasaur premaxillary bones

    From the album Marine reptiles and mammals

    2 unidentified mosasaur species' anterior end of premaxillary bones. One with teeth broken off just beyond the skull, and the other has 2 remaining teeth, with the rest broken off at the level of the skull. the larger fossil was found in the phosphate mines of Khouribga, Morocco. ive since lost the information for the smaller fossil, sadly.
  15. I was shark tooth hunting and found this fragment on Casey Key, Florida 9 years ago. I recently went through my stuff and found 3 pieces of Mastodon Tooth Enamel. So I'm not sure if it's too small to ID but has a interesting wood grain pattern with enamel on the top. Can you ID it? Thanks FF!
  16. Some Type of Bone?

    We found this yesterday at the edge of a creek. We dug into a little mound that was full of fossilized shark teeth and oysters. Does anyone know what it might be? Thank you in advance. You all are so helpful here.
  17. Help iding some morrison bone

  18. Fla "Creek" Find

    Couple more photos.
  19. I found this small piece of bone, it appears, with a small tooth protruding from the side. This was found in the North Sulphur River in Ladonia Texas. Any ideas of what this might be? Thank you so much and advance.
  20. I'm having a hard time finding any images of anything other than the outside/side view of a spinosaur pelvic bone. I'm trying to see what the bone looks like in general, but all too many times...WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY too many times I'll spend forever unsuccessfully trying to come across pictures, images, or diagrams that show what a bone looks like from other angles than what you see be looking at the skeleton from generic angles, like this one. In some cases it's not TOO difficult, but even those common bones have areas that you can never see, unless you get totally lucky and happen across it, OR if there's maybe, hopefully some site/database that specifically shows what entire bones look like. I doubt that, but I know there's perfect diagrams floating around on the web, but I can't seem to find any *im just talking about dinos and other extinct animal bones. I'm sure there's plenty of sites with images of every conceivable angle of every bone from humans and common living animals, but I'm not looking for that kind of thing.
  21. Bone from Lithuania

    Hello, This bone was found in city of Vilnius, old town, while digging. Which animal could it belong to? The digging site is dated 15-16 century..
  22. Bone identification, please?

    Found this bone on the Chesapeake today. Perhaps a shoulder bone? Not sure of what it's from or what it is. Part of it has a smooth, indented shape, like a socket joint. Thank you for any assistance!
  23. Unidentified bone

    Hey all, i found this in shale matrix near Whitby in England. Guessing it’s ichthyosaur but does anybody know what type of bone it is? Wish more was preserved in the area i found it haha
  24. Hello again, I found this small reptile-like piece on the beach in SW Florida. Pics show both sides. One side looks like turtle shell so my guess would be a turtle scute. What do you think?
