  1. Skull, Teeth, Jawbone, etc.

    Hello everyone and thanks in advance for any help or ideas. Earlier this summer my friend moved to South Dakota and purchased a home. A few days ago he was cleaning out a shed on the property and found a cardboard box filled with the fossils seen below. It is unknown if the prior owner had found these on the property or if they had been purchased elsewhere. So unfortunately he has no idea where or when these were originally found. Neither of us have much experience in this but obviously fossils such as these catch your attention! If anyone wants or needs additional pictures let me know and I will see if he can send more. I have included mostly pictures of the skull and teeth as I figured they would likely be most helpful for identification. It is assumed all these pieces belong together but it is possible it is just a random collection. The pictures in order are: skull facing front, skull bottom, skull side (close up), three different angles of the jaw/teeth, and then one pic of all the pieces together with a ruler to get a ballpark idea of sizing. Hope you guys enjoy the pics and hopefully someone out there has some guesses. Thanks!
  2. North TX Cretaceous bone ID. Dino?

    Any ideas? Out of the eagle ford of north Texas. 85-90 mya.
  3. Fossil bone near Mt. Ida

    So yesterday I was out looking for quartz in Mt Ida and happened across this interesting piece of fossil. Anyone have any ideas? I sifted through some pages online and didnt come up with anything that resembled it's relatively small size and pointed spine features on top.
  4. Hadrosaur Humerus Repair/Prep

    I recently got this lovely mess of bone, which is a mostly complete hadrosaur right humerus that only requires some assembling. I actually bought this with the idea that it might be a fun project. But then it broke even more in the shipping. So I have my work cut out for me. It's from Judith River formation, Montana. It's hard to tell at the moment, but it seems to be a rather slender humerus. So that would make it more likely to be from the saurolophinae subfamily. But I will look into that some more when I have it assembled. So I will be doing lots of reassembling on this piece as well as prepping away some excess matrix that's still present. Besides the obvious problems, the bone itself is actually in very nice condition with some really smooth cortical bone as well as some lovely visible muscle scars. This is how it looked when I first opened it. Quite a mess. Also a drawing of what it should look like in context. And here I have slightly ordered the pieces. There's 5 big main pieces, three medium pieces and a whole bunch of tiny chunks. One of the bigger pieces that includes the ulnar and radial condyles. The shaft of the bone has had a pretty bad recent fracture. This is also where most of the smaller pieces come from.
  5. Spinosaurus bones?

    Can anyone identify these as spinosaurus bones. Ive come across these pictures with very little information, other than apparently spinosaur bones from Morocco. I think the verts look clearly spinosaur, but I'm not very familiar with spinosaur long bones, although they immediately struck me as looking a little off. Maybe them being flattened is throwing me off. This seemed like a perfect opportunity for not just help learning spino long bones, but also while dealing with details like that, which can interfere with "standard" identification. In the 4th picture, the fossil on the bottom right--is that a vert with a long bone next to it? It's positioned like the sail of the vert, and seems to be attached to the vert but something about the bone looks wrong for part of the sail, to me...maybe that it looks like it's rounded along the length's edge, which I thought was not how they were shaped(if I'm wrong, I could also be just picturing dimetrodon sail spines...well, or just plain wrong, of course)? ...As well as looking just like the other long bones present. Thanks for any and all help!
  6. Ichthyosaur rib part

    From the album Holzmaden

    A small Ichthyosaur rib part from the lower Jurassic of the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden.
  7. Fragment of bone? (Ukraine)

    Hello! Help with id, please. Is it part of bone..? It was found in Western Ukraine, neogene or cretaceus. Thanks
  8. Dinosaur or Mammal bone ID help

    I found this on the bank of the Red Deer River in Alberta Canada. I have no idea what it's from. I have never found a fossilized bone before. Does anyone have any ideas? Not sure if it could be from a Dinosaur or a mammal like a young mammoth or something. I would love to get some ideas on this one. I am willing to answer any questions or take new photos if needed.
  9. Odd chunk of bone.

    I recently bought a box of fossils from @Bone Daddy that included a "grab bag" of items found in the Peace River. One of them is odd looking, at least to me. 6.5 cm long x 3.75 cm wide x 2 cm at its thickest. Its got enough curves & slopes that my camera wasn't sure where to focus & I have no photo stacking software, so please bear with me. Not sure if it's just really odd weathering or how this particular bone looks normally, but the under side has sort of ripples running the length of it, all joining at a "point". Pics are of the top, bottom, both sides & 2 of the butt end, 1 of which is a close up. No idea if this is anything special or not, but that's why I'm here. Awesome or dud, either way, it's mine & special for that. So now.. on with the pics. Not sure why 2 of them rotated, but..
  10. Anyone know what this is?

    Hello! I found this on the beach while looking for sharks teeth. Any ideas on what it is?
  11. This is a find from Big Brook, NJ. Its about 15mm long and 10mm wide at the end. Could it be a salmonoid Jaw fragment? Like these http://www.njfossils.net/salmon.html
  12. Unidentified Virginia vertebrate fossils

    These are some fossils that I couldn't quite identify while out looking around an area of land in the Nottoway river drainage today. The first appears to be some sort of bone, my guess is a vertebra potentially belonging to a crocodile, though I am very new to this and am quite possibly incorrect in this guess  Next up is a decent sized fragment of a shark tooth that I initially thought to be a young megalodon, but then wasn't quite so sure after noting the presence of what appears to be a slightly weathered cusp on the side of the tooth that is still present, alongside the fact that the tooth appears to have a slight curvature to it Any insight is well appreciated, thanks! 
  13. From the album Yorkshire Ammonites

    A unique piece with bone all over the rock.
  14. Lake Michigan bone ID Help

    Wondering if anyone knows what this might be from. Maybe it's not a fossil. We found on the Lake Michigan beach near Two Rivers Wisconsin. Theres a small cut un it, where it appears to be the makeup of bone, not rock. Maybe a carpal bone from something?
  15. Bones in coprolite

    This is from zephyrosaurus. Here is a photo of it. Thoughts ?
  16. Niobrara River Fossils Help??

    So my son and I were walking in the Niobrara river west of Verdigre, Nebraska and found some fossils. These were the best 2 that we have. Also found a lot of bone fragments. Any help in identifying these would be great. I have no idea. Thanks in advance. Tom
  17. Fossilized Bone?

    I found both of these bones within a foot of each other poking out of the surface of a creek beside my house (I live in North West Indiana). They both seem to pass the burn test and tap test, although this is my first time finding potentially ancient bone, so I'm not certain that they are fossilized. Could anyone more experienced confirm that these are fossilized? Or recommend any other tests?
  18. Ok so today I went shark tooth hunting and I came across what to me looks like a tusk or horn of some sort. I honestly have no clue. Anyone else know what this might be? They’re about the size of a penny.
  19. Hi, I found a small fragment of what I think may be dinosaur bone on the Isle of Wight. It was on Gurnard beach on the north of the island. The island is famous for dinosaur fossils, with 20 different species being found on the south beaches. The fragment is roughly 20mm square. One side is half-covered in what looks like reptile skin and the other side has lots of streaks across it. Hopefully photos will help. Thanks.
  20. The seller claims is a plesiosaurus vertebrae 20cm that has no extra pieces on or glues , i was wondering if somebody can say the opposite. thanks in advance
  21. Possible fossilized bone found

    We were looking for Herkimer diamonds on Mount Tzouhalem on Vancouver Island, BC, Canada today. The area we were in had been blasted to make a golf course which never happened, about 10 years ago. It exposed basalt reportedly from the Devonian period, and there's lots of shale with some veins of clay that the Herkimer diamonds are found in. We found this possible fossil just laying amongst the loose shale. It seems to have some characteristics of bone, and is a fair size chunk. Here's the pictures. Any help would be appreciated.
  22. Modern Bone?

    Hey everyone, I found this bone in the White River Formation and when I started to prep it, it made me think that it might be modern bone. The bone is hollow and when I was prepping it, the bone would crumble and break really easily if you tried to snap it. Does anyone know if it’s modern?
  23. Fossil plant or animal?

    Hello all. I haven't been active here for awhile, too much tragic events the past couple of months, unfortunately. Anyway, I have been helping my buddy out again, sorting through a huge collection of minerals and fossils that he purchased earlier this year. I went through a unopened box today and there were so many plant fossils, many are quite stunning! This piece I am not quite sure about. If it is plant the leaves were quite thick and dense. The gloss is wild looking, and I thought bone at first. Only about 1/4 of the fossils in this collection had labels on them and most had fallen off in the boxes and are all scrambled up. It's been a chore, but snarge fun regardless, as you can imagine. I need help on this one. Sorry some of the photos aren't focused well. I should have worn my glasses today! KP
