  1. Human bone?

    I found this at the beach. Do you think it's a human radius bone or animal bone? I grabbed it in the waves on the east coast of Fl today. It perfectly fits from my elbow to wrist.
  2. Kem Kem bones

    Hello all, I got these two bones a couple of years ago. The biggest (first) one is 24 cm in lenght, the other one is 13 cm. I think the first one is from a crocodile? They are both repaired but not composited. I want to use them in my essay for school so I would really like to know what they are.
  3. I'm having a hard time finding any images of anything other than the outside/side view of a spinosaur pelvic bone. I'm trying to see what the bone looks like in general, but all too many times...WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY too many times I'll spend forever unsuccessfully trying to come across pictures, images, or diagrams that show what a bone looks like from other angles than what you see be looking at the skeleton from generic angles, like this one. In some cases it's not TOO difficult, but even those common bones have areas that you can never see, unless you get totally lucky and happen across it, OR if there's maybe, hopefully some site/database that specifically shows what entire bones look like. I doubt that, but I know there's perfect diagrams floating around on the web, but I can't seem to find any *im just talking about dinos and other extinct animal bones. I'm sure there's plenty of sites with images of every conceivable angle of every bone from humans and common living animals, but I'm not looking for that kind of thing.
  4. Help ID Bones

    Can anyone ID these bones? They are from the Two Medicine Formation, they have these weird bumps on them which I first thought was skin but it looks like it's part of the bone or whatever it is.
  5. Hello everyone, had a super quick trip to the cretaceous creeks of new jersey and found this particularly interesting large bone fragment, likely it is a chunk of miscellaneous bone material but it reminds me alot of a scute like ankylosaurus or some sort of other bone scute especially the edge, or from maybe something like a large turtle but I am entirely not sure if it's dinosaur, marine reptile, etc or if there is anyway to tell, looks super suspicious to me anyways so if anyone has any ideas I'd definitely love to hear them. (If more pictures are needed I will definitely be able to get some more angles if necessary)
  6. fossils in a museum in Palm Beach

    when i was in miami during the summer i went to this mall in palm beach where they had this museum that has dinosaurs and other prehistoric animals but they are some fossils in there that i dont know what they are so i wanted them to have IDed.
  7. Dear fellow forum goers, These past few weeks have been quite busy, but that has not stopped me from going on the occasional fossil excursion. A few trips went by since my last posting and I decided to let some trips accumulate before posting again. On these trips I interacted with forum members @Woopaul5 and @frankh8147. The most recent trip was today, 08/12/18, and was somewhat productive. Frank found what we believe to be a part of a mosasaur brain case, which will surely be in his "finds of the year list". I was not as luck but ended up scoring a small point fragment and a jaw section of some fish. There were also some nice quality teeth that I found today. Other than this trip, I scored some nice finds on a few other trips throughout the two months. I hope you enjoy the finds, as I enjoyed finding them, and have a nice day. Kind regards, Trevor Overall Finds Stream Worn Shark's Teeth
  8. Bone identification please

    Found all of these in that same small area of a river. The depth was about 3" of water and they were on the surface of the river bed with vegetation growing on most of them. One (by the 20" mark on the tape) I am sure is a toe bone. Any help would be appretiated. This is in the mid-Alberta area.
  9. how about these

  10. Boney!

    I’ve had a seemingly good day today and have found some interesting stuff near Whitby. Not many ammonites but some nice bone stuff hopefully! I’m guessing the first find is fishy, probably Gyrosteus?
  11. Ichthyosaur skull bones

    This piece was found by me two years ago in the Kromer Quarry near Holzmaden and was prepped by Roger Furze ( @Ludwigia ). On the piece you can see a disarticulated Ichthyosaur skull with some ribs and vertebrae. You can see one eyehole very good, although the eye itself isn't preserved. Isolated bones are not that rare in Holzmaden but such pieces are very rare! It could be a skull of a juvenile.
  12. Ichthyosaur skull bones

    From the album Holzmaden

    This fossil was found by me two years ago in the visitor quarry Kromer near Holzmaden and was prepped by Roger Furze ( @Ludwigia ). Thanks again On the piece you can see a disarticulated Ichthyosaur skull with some ribs and vertebrae. You can see one eyehole very good, although the eye itself isnt preserved. Isolated bones are not that rare in Holzmaden but such pieces are very rare ! At the maximum the piece is about 24 cm long. Unprepped: Prepped: The eyehole is very good visible: (Probably my favourite part ) The other eyehole: Some more bones: A vertebra: This one could be from a juvenile which is very rare!
  13. Shell Shocked at Matoaka

    Calvert Cliffs has been a popular place lately and I hesitated to post one more trip report this week, but as I look for other kinds of things, I decided I'd share. I have been told on several occasions that the cabins aren't worth much. All they have are shells. as @WhodamanHD put it, "If you like snails, go to Matoaka." Well, yes. That's why I love it so much. Last year I documented at 50 species of mollusk from one spot on the beach, and that's just what I was able to bring home! I returned to the for Independence Day week. and the cliffs did not disappoint! A landslide so recent that there was no sign yet of rain erosion stretched out into the bay just north of the beach. It's a treacherous place to linger and to traverse, but I was banking on the fact that this part off the cliff had done it's falling for now -- I hoped. In other spots, trees dangled precariously over the cliffs. If you ever doubted that this can fall on you, remember this -- I'm pretty sure that the sound of thunder I herd the night we got in was the landslide I worked all week. It only rumbled once, on a windless, rainless evening. The innumerable fallen trees I had to climb over to get to my favorite spot tell the rest of the ongoing story. If you feel a bit of gravel fall own your head, RUN. You were warned. That said, we all know this is an addiction, so I se too work with a screw driver most of the week, chipping away at the loose material at the base that was sitting in the nice, cool water most of the day. On a blisteringly hot day, there's no place I'd rather be! The fall exposed all kinds of things that most folks think I'm a bit silly to carve out - clams, snails, bryozoa, brachiopods, but I love the biodiversity of the place. I chipped away at big blocks during the day, until it got too hot, the tide too low and the snack supply diminished. I met the wonderfully astute @FossilsAnonymous out there and loved getting to talk to a fellow hunter who didn't think me crazy for chasing after punky sea shells. I wrapped everything in aluminum foil and carried them in a metal pail for the mile or so trek back to the cabin, where I had my make-shift lab set up on the porch. That's where the real work began. The day before we left was blustery after successive storm cells moved in and out the night before. The beach was totally rearranged from wave action. The bay spewed forth all kinds of things. My daughter and I walked the beach to find whatever had washed ashore. I found 3 Ecphora snails sitting on the beach right at the entrance. A little further down, we met another forum member, whose name I cannot find now in my tag options HI! We spoke for about 10 minutes while she and my daughter dove into the lapping waves to grab the shark teeth that washed up at our feet. How they saw them is beyond me, but they must have collected 30 between them while we were standing there! It's taken me a week since I got home to unwrap and clean most of what I brought home. It took me an entire afternoon of diving into half a dozen texts to identify the few shells that were new to me. One I can still only get down to a genus. (see comments!) So far, I've found at least 8 more species of mollusks to add to my count. My daughter brought home great gobs of shark teeth. We even brought back a few big bone shards, one of which I believe is a (rather rare for this section) dugong bone with scratches that might be a predator's bite marks. There is still a big blocks of matrix in the basement waiting to be carefully picked with the old dental and clay tools. There is still a pile of micro matrix to sift through that I carved out of the larger shells as I prepped them. It's been like opening gifts at Christmas. This Christmas may last for a couple very happy months!
  14. Calvert 7/13

    Went back down to Calvert cliffs hoping to score something good. I was hoping not to have bad luck considering its Friday the 13th! But over all I think I did alright. Ended up finding what I think is a fossil sand dollar, a big ole’ shark vert (even bigger for being found in Maryland), and I also included some bones from a recent trip. I’m thinking whale? But somebody probably knows better than I do... I’ve never found a sand dollar at the cliffs before, so i think that’s kinda cool. Maybe they’re more common than I think, but either way I’m happy with it! Thanks for looking, Conor
  15. A few weeks ago I sent Roger ( @Ludwigia ) a piece with some bones from Holzmaden. In exchange of some money and some fossils from Zwingelhausen he prepped it for me! Already in the unprepped condition I had the suspicion that it might be a skull or at least a part of a skull. Only a few bones were visible first. Unprepped stone: I found this one in 2016 in the visitor quarry Kromer near Holzmaden. Its about 23 cm long. The prep work was very difficult, because the stone was so hard. It took about 12 hours. But nevertheless Roger did a great job and I am very happy about the result Here are two pictures of the finished piece: As you can see its really a part of an Ichthyosaur skull It might be a juvenile but I am not sure You can see the eyehole very good, although its a shame that the eye itself isnt preserved:
  16. Please ID

    I wish I had a clue here! I am the nature and wildlife person people come to to identify live things. So now I need someone to help me ascertain if there are fossils in here. This is a soft, porous stone that was in a bed of ornamental river rocks, near the St. Lucie River, in Martin county, FL. When I grabbed it I thought it was an owl pellet. But it's a rock. Is that a jaw in there? and bones...? Thanks.
  17. Pleistocene bones, UK

    Found these bone fragments at Stutton Ness in the U.K. a few of days ago. They were right at the base of the Pleistocene ‘cliff’ deposits and have orange staining like the matrix in the cliffs. I’ve read that these deposits are 210,000 year old interglacial. Apparently lion, straight-tusked elephant, horse, giant deer and bison have been found here in the past. I have no experience of these type of finds and wondered if anyone had any thoughts on what species they may be or is that impossible with these small fragments? Also, should I try to conserve them, paraloid maybe? Thanks in advance for any help. P.s. I know the two white bones on the left are modern
  18. Bones South Dakota

    Hello, A while ago I bought these 2 bones from South Dakota. The seller told me that it would be raptor, a vertebra and a femur. Can I get confirmation from somebody? Thank you
  19. Hi all, I found 3 interesting things on my last day at Onslow Beach NC. They look like some sort of bones to me. One I think is a vertebrae. Of what??? I’m hoping you all can tell me. It looks like 3 is the limit on sending pics so I will have to do several posts. If there is information on posting that I should know please point me there as well. I saw something about using the “photo FAQ-page to learn about posting but couldn’t find it. Thank you in advance. Bone 1... Vertebrae?
  20. I have recently purchase two large pieces of Jurassic aged bone from the Morrison Formation near the Dinosaur National Monument in Northwest Colorado. They seemed to be shaped in a way that it maybe possible to give them a general ID, I don't know if it can of course go as far as ID the specific dinosaur of course but if anyone with experience may know what kind of bones they are, any help would be appreciated as I would like to label them for the collection. As it stands the first larger one I believe to be likely sauropod bone or some other large herbivore while the second one I think may be theropod of some sort. Also if it's possible would anyone be able to tell what kind of bone they maybe like for example limb, leg, metatarsal, etc. Any feedback will be greatly appreciated! The larger bone measures nearly 9 1/2 inches long The smaller one measures approximately 6 1/2 inches long
  21. Fossil bones of what?

    Found this in northern Arkansas. Need help identifying what they are from? slab is 6"x 4"x 5" some photos you can see the bone protruding and texture inside the bone
  22. Hi! I’m new on here and not super familiar with fossils. However, today I was walking on the beach in Hatteras Village, Hatteras Island, North Carolina (a part of the Outerbanks). I stumbled upon what appears to be an old bone of some sort. For the life of me, I can’t figure out what type of bone it is/which animal it is from. Any ideas?? The photo is posted below. For some reason, the other photos won’t upload, so I will try to upload them in the replies hopefully.
  23. Possible Dinosaur Bones. ID Help.

    Hello, I found these 4 bones today. The three on the right were all in fairly close proximity to each other and the bone on the far left was found alone. I am having trouble figuring out if these are modern day bones or dinosaur bones. A few main reasons that lead me to believe they're not modern is the location. I found these at the base of a large hillside within the Hell Creek formation slightly buried in the dirt. This is an area that has produced dinosaur bones in the past. Also it seems to me when I find more modern day bones usually the entire animal itself or other bones can be found nearby (cattle, deer, and etc.). Any ID help would be greatly appreciated also let me know if I need to provide more detailed pictures. Thanks, Nic
  24. Kem Kem Beds fossil id

    Could anyone put a name on this bone from the Kem Kem beds? When i purchased it there was a lot of sediment stick on it and looks more like a strange looking stone, but what came out is a complete bone.
