  1. Does anybody have any opinions about this? I don't like the look of it at all - where the bone has chipped away, there's red stuff underneath (glue?). This doesn't look like the usual Chinese fakes you see on eBay. This is the only photo available.
  2. Found this odd little bone at Calvert Cliffs. It is only 3/4" (0.75") long. Definitely fossil and doesn't appear to be fish.
  3. Hi I recently acquired a "pile" of 10 bone fossils/fragments from Morocco. It was sort of a surprise paket since I didn't know what I am buying exactly. However, what I received looks extremly interesting to me. For a start, I would like to show one of the big ones. Thank you for your time and your thoughts. This is the information I received from the seller (not the same person that found the fossils so it is potentially inaccurate or wrong): - Found in Kem Kem fossil beds in Eastern Morocco near the border with Algeria - Cenomanian Some observations: - The bone seems to be fossilized and is quite heavy - The ends of the bone are broken off and missing unfortunately - The bone is HUGE! Ok, lets attach some pictures now... Bone Nr. 1
  4. Both of these were found in Middle Tennessee, not far from Nashville. The area is now a lake, but use to be a river before a dam was built. The first one with the indentations is about 3 inches in length. The one that looks like a bone (but probably isn't?) is about 5.5 inches long and 2.5 inches tall at its tallest point. Any ideas? thanks.
  5. Hi guys; I have recently been treated to a nice week down the Isle of Wight and having spent the first day down in Yaverland today I though I would share some of my finds. 1) these both appear to be Vertebra, I'm assuming they are dinosaur as I'm preatty sure I've read somewhere that crocodiles have concave and convex ends to their Vertebra but may be totally of base with that assumption.
  6. I wonder if anyone can identify these. Cretaceous, folkestone Gault clay in England They are very small.
  7. What's going on everyone? Been going to Poricy park and have some other things that I will post later ( also some finds from trips big brook). One of the strangest things I came across was this bone...would anyone know what this is ? I don't believe it is modern because it feels like solid rock when I slightly tapping against the ground. Let me know what you guys think.
  8. I found this bone (?) fragment over the weekend in the North Sulphur River bottom. It's a little over an inch long. Any clue what it may have come from? I have another larger piece, but I don't think they are connected. I will post that as well.
  9. I have a bone fragment from the Peace river- I've been puzzling over it's anatomic position- it seems like it could be shoulder girdle - I couldn't decide on whether to post under fossil ID or question- an ID would be nice, but I am more interested in the anatomy so here it is- the gray scale is for size- 4.7 x3.5 cm
  10. Found this in Southern California, the rocks are either Paleozoic or Mesozoic, I'm really unsure but this was near the Silverado area. What do you think?
  11. Hi all, Found couple interesting fossils need help to ID. They were from Post Oak Creek in Sherman, Texas. First four pictures are a tooth of some sort, last three are a half dollar size bone fragment.
  12. My boyfriend found this in North Carolina, at Jockey's ridge state park. (dunes) Looks like a jaw or spine of some sort.
  13. Hello!!!! Not sure what this is but I have had it kicking around for years (20 to be exact). It was found on a beach in Nova Scotia. It appears to be bone, is about 2 inches high by 1.5 inches across but doesn't look to be a complete segment. Any ideas?
  14. Last Monday, June 12th, was my first trip to the Calvert Cliffs, and while my haul is hardly breathtaking I was very happy with it since it was my first tooth-hunting trip ever (first pic). I did my best to try and i.d. the finds, but I'm probably off on some of them. In fact, looking at this again, I can see that the top middle one is probably the tooth of a Lemon Shark, not a Gray as I had labeled it a week ago. I didn't spend much time each time I stopped at a beach (I was kayaking from Brownie's Point), because I didn't know how much there was to see as I traveled south. Turns out, only that first run of cliffside beaches at low tide offered anything, but I spent most of the day paddling south past the rocky shore, wooden piers and private beaches. There were thunderstorms on Monday so I went yesterday, June 20th. This time I spent the entire time on those cliffside beaches at low tide. I'm pretty happy with what I found, though I'm sure it's pretty standard fare. As I was walking past one of the several landslides that spill out into the sea from the cliffs, I saw something sticking straight up out of one. It turned out to be half of a meg tooth (on the right, below)! I clawed around in the surrounding clay to see if the other half was anywhere to be found, but that search was as useless as I expected it to be. Looking down, I found what I think is a second partial meg tooth. I ended up finding a number of teeth visible on the surface of these landslides, but I didn't have any tools aside from a small hand trowel for scooping up stuff for sifting. I found some sort of bone in one of the landslides, and I *think* it's a partial cetacean ulna? Two other notable finds were what I think is a Shortfin Mako shark tooth and an Odontocete tooth- which, btw, I almost threw away. I didn't know what it was and it looked like something from a modern plant. It passed my completely silly squeeze test (it didn't fall apart like rotted plant matter), so I kept it. Well, now I know. So, are we allowed to dig around in those landslides? I know, aside from it being dangerous, that we're prohibited from touching the cliff face, but these landslides extend out from the cliff and most reach the waterline. Some of them seem pretty new, just based on vegetation -or absence thereof- on them. Anyway, I had a great day and I hope to return soon.
  15. First day on the forum and after the great responses on my first post I figured I would ask about another find from the past year. This was found in a deep draw in a pasture that I frequently find fossils in. Most are small but this was much larger than anything else. It almost looks like part of a vertebrae but I'm wrong more often than not. The indentions and form look more bone like than anything I've seen in nature. Any ideas as to what it could be or do I just have another odd "rock"? More images
  16. Hi my son found this in some limestone near St Stevens Alabama we were wondering if someone could possibly help with the ID I know that it isn't complete but that is all that we could find of it thank you for any help
  17. Hi this was found in lyme Regis near the ammonite pavement to the west of the cob. Any I'd help greatly appreciated.
  18. Just wondering if this is a bone fragment? My 6 year old son found it a field in upstate New York. More pics
  19. can i get some help with id of these fossils i found in my back yard
  20. Hey gang. So a couple more odd questions for you. I stopped by a dirt pile on the way home after work earlier this week and found some vertebrate bits including some turtle, horse teeth, ivory, dugong bone,etc. I found two larger flat shapes (bottom middle 2 specimens in the 1st picture) that intrigued me the most that were covered in clay so I brought them home---both I thought were large turtle shell plates. The first one I could see definitely see a grainy turtle shell texture of the larger types that I've already run across as well as the various boney layers within the shell but when cleaned up I noticed this black orbicular staining on just the one side and Im wondering if you all have seen that and know if it might be caused by something within the actual turtle shell...disease/fungus, etc or is it just a random mineral stain? The 2nd specimen I again thought was a large piece of turtle shell. Again when I cleaned it up I first noticed the textured flat side but there is a canal/vessel of some sort going thru the entire midsection of the fragment and then upon further rinsing I noticed two crescent shapes reminiscent of tooth root cavities on the top of the fragment. I went from thinking turtle shell and then seeing no laminations in the bone to wondering if it was some sacral element and now I'm wondering if those crescent shapes might indicate something crazy like a piece of sloth mandible. Someone please set me straight. Appreciate any opinions. Forgot to add scale and show the position of the canal/opening. It appears that the canal/vessel runs right between and beneath the two outer crescent shapes (the arrows in the photo indicate its location) and the top of it is very thin/narrow and has been broken/collapsed-the area which I have also circled in red. If it had not been broken in that area I think all you would see in the top view is just the two crescent shapes. Hoping there is enough detail to suggest what critter this came from. Thanks. Regards, Chris
  21. I got this as a gift a year or so ago. I'm do not know the location or what it is. I'd love to know what they are and also if it's the original matrix or if it's been put together. Thank you
  22. Hello everyone I have an interesting bone or tooth I need help with. It's from Yazoo Clay (Late Eocene) Louisiana ,marine environment . It's 45.5 mm long and 8 mm across.Not sure what it is. any information would be appreciated.
