  1. Drepanosaurus claw?

    Wondering if this could be a claw from a Drepanosaurus. What do you guys think?
  2. Dinosaur bone? Allosaurus?

    This one I'm actually really worried about, cause I wasn't aware of trying to get something ID'd on here, and so took the seller at their word and bought it. It seemed a little weird, but Ive seen plenty of fossilized bones look weird and "off", so it didn't REALLY strike me as a red flag. after I got it though, the striped coloring looked even weirder in person, and the gravelly matrix on the bottom made it seem much thinner and more off. There was never any claim as to what bone it was, but it's supposed to be from an allosaurus from the Morrison formation. I couldn't fit all the pics in one post, so the rest are following.
  3. Englewood Beach Rock or Bone?

    I found this tumbled rock or bone on Englewood Beach, Florida. It looked different than most of the oval pieces of whale bone I've found. It is very smooth on the darker side and rougher crystalline on the flip side. It measures about 1" at it's widest points. Any Ideas? Thanks for all replies!
  4. Need help with one more from Aurora

    Forgot I had this one on the shelf. Would love additional input. Thanks again.
  5. Final Aurora find

    Hoping i found something other than just vertebra while there lol. Thanks again.
  6. Another Aurora find

    Found this with the recently identified whale vertebra. Thanks for the help so far.
  7. Found this a couple of years ago while searching in the phosphate mine spoils in Aurora. Not sure exactly what it is.
  8. Bone?

    Can someone tell me if i just found my first yorkshire bone?
  9. bone or no bone?

    hi there all. i've been dropping in on the forums now and again as a spectator for a bit but never posted so hello! i found this item yesterday in the shallows of lake erie. i've been picking up rocks in the lake and niagara river since i was a kid but never came across anything that looked like this. it's about 2 inches long. the whitish band that forms the perimeter has sort of what looks like a recently exposed section on the "underside" and the white material is almost chalky (i can scrape some tiny dust-bits off with just my fingernail). the kid in me wants to believe this is an old bone with some glacier-era striations grooved into the back end of it but being a novice i obviously can't make a determination on my own. any help would be appreciated. thanks!
  10. Is this bone in corprolite?

    My research indicates this should be a corprolite.. there is a chunk of something that kinda looks like agatized bone in it.. Thoughts?
  11. What did I find?

    Theres a few pictures so I'll upload them in seperate posts. Anyways, I was hunting in the Edmonton ravine area and found odd shaped specimen. Based on the shape I'm pretty sure its a fossil, its just awfully dense. I know for a fact that within 1km Edmontosaurs have been found. I'll post photos of the location too since you can clearly see the layers of rock, I'm just not sure what exactly im looking at. I
  12. What kind of bone?

    Hi! I found this bone today in my garden and at first i thought that this is a modern bone. I tried a burnih test but it doesn't smell or burn and it's not heavy.Maybe it's a bone from pleistocene? But the question is: From what kind of animal is this?
  13. Kem Kem IDs

    I recently acquired two bits of bone which I would appreciate any thoughts on. Before I go further, my guesses are crocodile and fish. So, here's the first one, a piece of jaw with the remains of two visible sockets and a piece of tooth still within the jaw. The two dark areas at the top are the sockets. Got to be crocodile, I assume? I don't think I've seen one with such a broad, flat area surrounding the teeth though. Here's the side view, showing the sloping sockets and the broken tooth. The bottom This side appears to have been attached to something. As you look at this picture, the teeth would have emerged from the top, along the other side. This item is more puzzling. I think I may have seen something like it before. It has the look of something fishy to me. The underside. As always, any thoughts would be appreciated.
  14. My wifes birthday is on Monday so trying to surprise her with a 3-4 day weekend trip. Looking for locations in the southeast. Can go as far down as ft. Lauderdale area or top of nc on the north side. We have been to Edisto and Summerville areas before and unfortuantely just havent gotten on top of any good spots. She really wants a whole Meg tooth or nice Angustiden tooth as well, were used to mainly finding fragments in the Savannah area. I wouldnt mind that but would love to add some more bones/and or fragments to our collection as well. I do have a small john boat with a 4 horse outboard this year so have a lot more accessibility as far as the Edisto river goes if thats what I decide on. Looking for a trip that will hopefully not break the bank, but be productive and most of all be a nice relaxing trip where I can spend some quality time hunting with my wife!. if anyone has any suggestions please send em my way! We can use all the help we can get haha.
  15. I found this rock wandering if it was a petrified log and I was cleaning the mud and sand off to find what looks like a ribcage, I didn’t want to go to far cleaning and damage it. Can anyone tell me what I’m looking at or if this is even a petrified
  16. Three prehistoric teeth

    Three prehistoric teeth found while digging up gofer holes to set traps in the back yard. The two smaller ones are identical, i removed the matrix from just one for identification.The bigger tooth is still in matrix, but hoping you can recognize the shape #&djcjcjdn
  17. Hello, I found this piece on the tracks in the Nature park Haard near Flaesheim in Germany. Usually this area is Upper Cretacous(Santonian, Campanian) and Weichselian ice age. The rocks seems to be fine sandstone but a little bit different from the quartzite which is usally found in this area. It rather looks like a piece of one, maybe a rib?
  18. These are not labeled as any specific bone, but I'm very curious as to what they are. I can't even imagine what the "bone" inside another bone would b! I'm assuming it's not marrow. It's supposed to be from a hollow boned dino. Someone I asked who isn't a novice, but works more with mammal fossils, said the only thing he can think of that he's seen like that, is a tusk. I'm guessing the second bone(pic 3&4)is the same type of situation, if not the actual same type of bone, that at one point had the filled in center also.
  19. Is this rock or bone?

    Hello, I am hoping someone can tell me whether this is rock or bone? I found it in a creek in middle Tennessee. Thanks! ~ Tracey
  20. Trex Toe Bone?

    Hey guys does this look like a Rex toe bone? Seller says it’s from Hell Creek FM and measures 1 inch by 1 inch
  21. Hell Creek tibia ID help?

    Hi For a short time I have this bone in my collection and I am currently trying to find out what it is. The length is about 60cm / 23 inch. Formation: Hell Creek Location: Wyoming, USA Anzu tibia maybe?
  22. Vertebrae and something else

    Hi all, I had this in my Montana turtle thread but though it needed its own thread. i found some more bone (float) in Eastern Montana coming out of a hill near (same bank but 30 yards away) where I found a turtle fossil last year. It is a variety of bones but 2 are interesting. The one is clearly a vertebrae and from a little research seems to be reptile but what kind? The other is a piece of bone with an interesting cavity in it. Can anyone identify either one? Here are the pics. thanks, Joe
  23. Bone identification

    Hey everyone, I was wanting to see if this bone is able to be identified by anyone. Seller does not know what it is or where it’s from, but it’s listed as possible dinosaur. I know it’s probably a long shot with the lack of information, but I thought it was worth a try. Seller says it’s 190 mm long. Thanks.
  24. Old Bone or not?

    Hello, I would like to know if it is possible to date approximatly this bone...thanks!
