  1. Help with bone

    Any idea on how old and what type of bone this is? Found on a New england Beach in mass. Thanks in advance
  2. I found this at a good price. It seems legitimate.
  3. A beautiful Friday at Stratford Hall in Virginia yielded few teeth, but a curious bone that matches one I collected on another occasion from the same spot. My gut says they are from the ear? Skull somehow? But I can’t find a good match... I’m hoping someone with more experience will recognize. Thanks !
  4. Bone or lobster or...?

    Hi Im new member. Whats is this? Location :Southern Poland Age:Cretaceous? Size : near 2cm x 2cm specimen.
  5. Large chunk of bone from desert

    Hello, I found this chunk of bone on a cliff on a beach in Ruwais, Abu Dhabi, UAE (United Arab Emirates). I know that identifying chunks of bone is difficult, but I thought that by it's size, weird vein markings? (fig.1), and sevreal holes running through the middle (fig. 2 and 3), that this would be more easily identified. I am thinking it might have belonged to some type of elephant. (Miocene in age)
  6. Bone Found in TN

    I found this bone on the shore of the Wolf River in TN near the Dale Hollow reservoir. Curious to know what it might be. The bone looks fossilized but I have no idea. Any ideas what this might be?
  7. Fossil Bone Fragment ID

    I wanted to see if anyone could tell me what animal this bone may have come from. Probably a shot in the dark for a bone fragment but I thought I'd try anyways. I found this on the shore of a reservoir in Westminster, Colorado which is a suburb of Denver. I've also found petrified wood in the same area. Let me know if any other info would be helpful for an id. Thanks.
  8. Caudal Vertebra

    what dinosaur?
  9. Pleistocene Radius Bone?

    Greetings I found this bone in a river valley in Northeast British Columbia. It was fairly close to where I found some horse and bison fossils earlier (shown below). I have not been able to ID it so far. My Buddy from the Yukon suggested it might be a radius bone from a predator. Doesn't look like a cat, wolf or bear. It is river worn and when I shake it there is material rattling around inside. We have snow on the ground so my fossil hunting days are over for this year. Sad days. Any help would be appreciated. Best Regards Rob
  10. Hello! Im new to the Houston area Moved down from Virginia Beach, where fossilized shark, stingray teeth are common. Decided to walk along local creek found lots of interesting old bottles, pottery fragments, fossilized wood and shells, eventually came along three large fossilized bone fragments and one interesting partial fossil. The only fossils I’m familiar with are the shark teeth exc. common to my area help identifying these and knowledge on other common local fossils is much appreciated.
  11. Could these be bones from Aust Cliff?

    Hi, I went to Aust cliffs today. I brought back some material, and noticed these. Could they be bone fragments? They are probably not identifiable, but I think if they are bone fragments would most likely be from an Ichthyosaur or Plesiosaur. I think the one on the right isn't a bit of bone, rather an interesting bit of rock. Many thanks.
  12. Is this a fossil? First post :)

    I’m lucky enough to live within walking distance to lots of fossils at Maslin Beach South Australia. The sites in this area are in coastal cliffs of limestone from the Eocene to Oligocene. I’ve found quite a lot of actual marine fossils here but this one I’m not sure about so it would be fun to get an answer from experts! I found this specimen in an exposed cliff face. It looks a lot like bone to me but I guess it could be a really interesting rock Thanks! Aarosaur
  13. Rhino?

    A guy I know has this: doesn’t know what it is. He’s in Indonesia and digs behind his village where he found this recently. I don’t have any info besides that. Rhino? Buffalo? I’m thinking buffalo. I’ll try and get more angles because I’m curious on the age. Thoughts?
  14. First time

    I have these two pieces wondering what they are, found in Montana. One looks like a bone, the other part of the jaw. Thanks, Marty
  15. Bones?

    Hello again! Help please to determine these two very small bones. Most probably that they are from fishes, but I dont know from which part of fish they are... Age: Middle Miocene. Length: first - 2 mm; second - 3,5 mm. Location: Western Ukraine. Thanks!
  16. Bone fossil found on beach

    This is my first post to this site and I thank you beforehand for any help you can give me with the ID of this piece of bone. I have been vacationing on Little Gasparilla Island for the last years. I am fascinated with the shark's teeth and other things that wash up. I am a surgical PA having both worked in Neurosurgery and now spine with orthopedics. I found this on my most recent trip and recognized it as bone immediately. It is about 3x2x2". The top and bottom appear to be cortical bone and the middle cancellous bone. I ran it by a few surgeon friends and we came up with nada.
  17. Chunkosaurus challenge

    I wasn’t even going to post this one up but it does have some unique features so I thought I would give it a shot. Any guesses?
  18. Large NJ Cretaceous Bone

    Found this thick bone piece in a new jersey cretaceous creek and wonder if its possible to maybe id since one side has a distinct rough texture while the other is flatter and striated, I would guess either large turtle, mosasaur, or dinosaur. My friend joked its a theropod maxilary skull fragment, but we all know around here that material seems close to impossible to come across haha. Interested to hear any other thoughts.
  19. BigBrook ID help needed

    Good evening. Another morning spent in Big Brook. Did ok with the shark teeth. 3 questions: 1) 15/16th inches I think is a sawfish rostal. 2). 3/8 inch piece of jawbone with 2 teeth which I think is fossil fish but have no idea which, and 3) a 1 1/8 inch piece of bone I guess to be modern. Can you identify the animal? Thank you for sharing your knowledge.
  20. Charmouth bone?

    Hi all, thank you for letting me join and post our find. My kids found this fossil(?) on Charmouth beach in the UK a few years ago. We didn't think it was anything until a family friend pointed out that it looked like a vertebrae or pelvis bone of some kind. I have no idea honestly so my apologies if that is a ridiculous thing to say. We are hoping it is a dinosaur bone, but any kind of fossil would be amazing, especially for my son who is 10 and LOVES dinosaurs and fossils. We hope you can help and I hope the pictures are okay. Please let me know if you need different photos and thank you all so much for your help and contributions to people.
  21. What kinda bone is this please?

    Hi, I found this bone on marthas vineyard, where native Americans and dinosaur fossils and relics are known to be found. Can you please help identify. Thank you in advance
  22. Is this like a T-bone vertebra?

    @Troodon I’m not asking where it’s from I just want to make sure it’s a bone.
  23. Found in colorado

    I found d this in nw Colorado. What is it? Coral, bone or just rock maybe?
  24. Hi Everybody.. I'm not a fossil hunter (just an interested bystander), but my five-year old son found this while exploring the shallows of the Rio Grande near our home, just north of Albuquerque, New Mexico. I'm 99% sure its fossilized and not just a bone. It's about 9 cm by 5.5 cm. You can see its smooth and curved on one side, and has a sort of sponge-like texture that would remind you of the inner part of a bone on the other. Any guesses on what it could be? Thanks in advance for any input!
