  1. Dinosaur bone ID help

    I found these stones today among stones of the digging residue of the suez canal . I hope to identify . many thanks in advance .
  2. IoW jaw-bone or just wood?

    I recently bought a lot of 3 unidentified dinosaur "bones" from Isle Of Wight. But one of them have got me in a bit of a pickle. There's not really any cell structure present anywhere, except from one small spot that seems to have some. Which makes me suspect it's wood. But the overall structure of this piece is really puzzling, because it looks like there are sockets or roots from a jaw in it. I hope someone with more knowledge about IoW fossils can maybe explain what this is.
  3. Bone?

    Hello! Help please with ID. Is it bone..? Length - 9mm. I dont certain with age. Western Ukraine.
  4. Sperm whale tooth...cool find

    Hey guys, found something totally cool this weekend looking for teeth and bone in Virginia. This long thing that looked like a claw. First thought was dinosaur raptor lol!!! But I know that's not it. Anyhow a buddie here said it's a sperm whale tooth. Pics below. Also found alot of bone(whale), teeth, verts, half a small Meg, mako tooth, and a pair of fossil sunglasses someone lost! Good luck everyone.
  5. Kem Kem Vertebrae ID (Croc/Dino?)

    Looking for a little help identifying some small Kem Kem vertebrae. I have some ideas as to what they might be, but I'm sure I'll be corrected. Hopefully the answers will prove useful to anyone else trying to identify Kem Kem verts too! So here's what I think these are: Vert 1: Small theropod, possibly a juvenile spino? (or maybe crocodile) Vert 2: Crocodile Vert 3: Crocodile? Vert 4: Theropod dinosaur Vert 5: Theropod dinosaur (looked a little similar to an Abelisaur vertebra I've come across on the forum before)
  6. This past weekend I was able to enjoy a rare February day of sunshine and temperatures above 50-degrees F (10-degrees C) in a vast expanse of public land owned by the U.S. government and in care of the Bureau of Land Management located in northwestern New Mexico. The area where I ventured is Upper Cretaceous though I am not sure of any period beyond that general age. Of the fossil related items I ran across, the first two photos show some petrified wood from a ground level stump. I noted some unfamiliar calcite patterns that were vaguely diamond shaped. The second photo shows an outline of these patterns and my rock hammer is there as an 11-inch (28-centimeter) scale. A friend of mine who knows considerably more than I do about fossilized plant life informed me this was once a cypress tree. The next two photographs shows a large surprise sticking out from under a mound of soil. Since this was BLM land, the bone remains in situ since collection is verboten. I have no further information on the bone. As a late addition while I can still edit this post, I can't believe I forgot about the petrified palm wood I found. I got it cut up and have attached a photo of it here. One thing that was pretty cool about the palm wood, and hopefully it is visible if you enlarge the photo, is that the vascular bundles (the dots you see all over the wood) due to compression of the wood prior to fossilization aren't really round but have been distorted and shaped like half-moons. This is commonly seen in other specimens collected in my area of the country and I'm sure elsewhere.
  7. I have a Vero Tapir foot bone fossil. The fossil is in very good shape with very few cracks, being not terribly old since Vero Tapir's went extinct some 11,000 years ago, (11,000 years seems pretty old to me though!) I am pretty new to fossil hunting, so I was curious whether or not it is necessary to put some kind of preserving agent on it? Are there any advantages or disadvantages either way? I appreciate any help!
  8. Finger or Toe bone?

    Hi is this Geologic or fossilized?, if it’s fossilized, what did it come from?And if so would it be a finger, or toe bone? Thank you!!
  9. Bone unknown

    I'm not sure what kind of bone this is. I found it in Gatlinburg on the side of the mountain by a hwy
  10. Hi All! This peculiar find reminds me of a type of marine mammal fin upon first sight. Haven’t come across anything remotely like it before. -20cm long, 15cm wide -found on a beach in Haida Gwaii (close to Alaska) Thank you!
  11. Charmouth bone

    I and @Pterygotus(who gave me permission to mention him in this topic) had a minor disagreement over whether or not this was bone. I thought it was bone because it displays obvious cell structure and my tour guide said it was bone. Any suggestions? thanks in advance!
  12. Lower Brazos - Tx

    Is this from a Bison? It seems semi-mineralized. But from the depth in a washout that i found it in makes me really really curious. There is noticable waves in the bone structure
  13. I have researched for a while now on these bones i have in my collection and only thing i can find that is pretty close to what i have are sauropod metatarsals. Can anybody maybe confirm this or what they may be from? The 3D models are very accurate i put the measurements on the 3d models just click on the annotations. They are from the morrison formation here in Colorado, thanks to anybody that can help! 1st bone: 2nd bone:
  14. Very strange bone, Lake Waco

    Found this very very strange bone on the banks of Lake Waco. Any ideas?
  15. I’m pretty sure it’s nothing?

    Just an odd shape or something more?
  16. Help?

    I found two bones off the Oregon coast in the Nye / Astoria formation, both Miocene around 15 - 20 million years old roughly. The formation has yielded demostylians. cetaceans (dolphins, sperm whales, baleen whales etc.) and pinnipeds (seals, sealions etc.) I know looked at a few images of sea lion and seal flipper bones. NOPE Then I moved on to cetacean and it matches the thickness and shortness of the bone I have. (these bones are worn but I believe they still hold most of their original shape. This is not some weathered rib, it has a shape which is hourglass like not due to the ocean but the original form of the bone. a tumbled rib would never have an arch but would rather be declining in one direction, not on both sides, exactly like a pectoral flipper digit.) So I am fairly certain I am in the cetacean family. I know I won't get past here as its not likely to get a species from two digit bones. But I do believe that I can find whether it is in the order of cetacea.
  17. Coprolite? Fern? Bone? Wood?

    Good morning folks. I have an item that I picked up listed as "dino poo" about ten years ago. The seller knew nothing about it except that he thought it was poo by sliced it and now thinks it "could be" a fern or poo. Help please. It's very heavy an measures about 6" in length. I was thinking petrified fern or wood. It's a beautiful specimen that really needs a name so I can display it.
  18. Big Brook

    Hope everyone’s week is going well. Was fortunate enough yesterday to go to Big Brook....again. I think this trip gave me the biggest variety of findings since I have been going to there and the most challenging to ID. (20+ times since August). Yes I have the bug. Anyway, enjoy the pictures and any feedback would be greatly appreciated. row 1-3 Squalicorax Kaupi row 4 I actually think the one on the right is Squalicorax Pristidontus top row Ischyrhiza Mira ( not 100% on the last one bottom row Enchidus This exactly an inch long. I think it might be a fish tooth. Xiohactinus? row 1-2 Archeolamna Kopingensis row 3 Cretolamna Appendiculata row 4 Protolamna Borodini (if I ID this right, this is my first one. If I did, it’s because of @the jersey devil website) The first tooth is one of the nicest teeth I found there. Almost feel like it doesn’t belong there. I going to guess Scapanorhynchus Texanus because I have never seen any other species that large. The two on the right are Carcharias Samhammeeri. I initially thought the bottom left was as well but going with Paranomotodon Angustidens because if the root. all Scapamorhynchus Texans bottom right has something interesting in it upper right possible coral? Have no experience with that. half of larger very and small vert some type of modern bone? crab claws bottom right I believe is half of a Anomoeodus tooth. Thanks for taking the time to look at my pictures and all my rambling. Feel free to correct me with any of my IDs. Much appreciated.
  19. Identify that bone please

    HI I found that bone yesterday on the beach of the mediterranean next door to the entrance of the suez canal where the suez canal authority used to evacuate mud containing stones resulted from the bottom of the suez canal in the mediterranean sea infront of the that beach . I spent several years collecting agate and ignoring bone but yesterday I went to that beach to collect bone where I found that bone . please identify and many thanks in advance .
  20. 11-02-19 lake macconaughy bone

    Hi I found this on the beach at lake mcconaughy in Nebraska which means it could be Pleistocene or Miocene but most likely from the Ash Hollow formation. I’m pretty clueless when it comes to bones and could use some help figuring out what this is. Thanks! P.s. I did the flame test and it’s fully mineralized.
  21. Burn test

    Hi guys, I'm new here! I just wanted to ask if the burn test is always reliable. A year ago I found a tooth near a creek, it's certainly bovid but I still can't understand if it's a modern one or prehistoric/Pleistocene. I've burnt it and it doesn't smell like burnt hair, but at the same time it kinda smells weird. So does the burn test always says the truth?
  22. First Thought is Whale Rib Parts

    I guess my first thoughts are whale bones. I have found some vertebra and a phalanx down the creek last week. These were buried in the creek wall and I believe in the Yorktown Formation. They are very heavy and have a solid “ring” to them when they touch. They’re on an 8.5” x 11” sheet of paper for size reference!
  23. Are there shark bites on this bone?

    Found on Myrtle Beach. I'm thinking this is some sort of whale bone, perhaps rib. Agree? And I don't want to read too much into cracks in this bone, but could they be shark bites? Thanks! - Paula
  24. I found this bone today in a freshwater creek in Virginia, along with some old scallop shells. I’ll post a four pics of this bone first and then the others that I found last week that were pretty certainly identified as a small whale vertebrae and a flipper phalanx. Curious what this new one might be. Thank you!
  25. hi guys, here are the two bones I found from the big brook, NJ yesterday. There were found in the mud of the river bank (I did not dig but the mud was exposed for unkown reason). I know there are a lot of mordern bones in this river area. They look like fossilized bone due to the iron. can anyone help to indentify if they are fossilized bones or morden bones? thanks!
