  1. Bone Identification

    I found these bones in Wilbur Oregon , while blackberry picking . i found bones sticking out of the ground. two bone sites about ten ft apart , they look like bison but i am really confused about the skull. can anyone identify these ? i would like to sell them. i have many bones from the site.
  2. Rapp creek hunting

    Back to the same hole I have been mining. Really nice weather, which brought out the mosquitoes. Found lots of sand shark, some bull/ dusky shark, several more angel shark, and the smallest cowshark tooth I've ever found (and a small one with big root and small tooth that I don't recognize). I looked hard in the area where I found the ulna with quill attachments last week and did find more bone pieces, and busted teeth(?). Many were "whale bone" (including two pieces that were one earlier, fit together well) but two were more interesting, although non-descript. I'll try to add some better pictures of those two. 2-16-18-teeth.pdf 2-16-18-tiny-teeth.pdf 2-16-18-bone.pdf 2-16-18-bone2.pdf
  3. York River finds..

    Hi all, Went to York River state park and found these pieces.... Hoping "A" is a tooth. "B" a Turtle shell? "C" some sort of ear bone?. "D" looks like coprolite but has those holes similar to whale bones that I find. I hope these are good guesses.
  4. Im looking for dinosaur eggs or partial eggs or egg shell collection. I have to trade shark teeth from Aurora NC, New Jersey, Maryland. Also bone and vertebrae from Aurora NC. I also have unprepared trilobites from Oklahoma. Let me know if interested
  5. So these are the before and after of the bone fragment prep process. This material was found at Aust Cliff in the U.K it's from the Triassic. I'd love to get your opinions on what you think it could be, given that it's only a fragment it will be hard to tell. I've not left it in the sun before you ask haha that was just to take a clear picture, don't want it cracking. Thanks guys. I think ichthyosaur/plesiosaur bone fragment as these are some of the most common bones found from there. Plenty of coprolite and micro fossils visible here as well including some teeth. I prepped this myself over the course of an hour, the matrix is nice and soft and easy to get through
  6. Today’s finds from the Peace.

    Bought a brand new yak, got to test it out today. Beautiful weather all day. Went to the peace river with my wife. Here’s the finds, not all fossils but cool nonetheless. Looks like some boar, bovine, mammoth, turtle, ect ect. I found a nice meg right out the gate, but my wife lost it! Such is life. The river levels are getting perfect in some areas for snorkeling. Will be going back all week(I’m off). Cheers guys, and happy hunting.
  7. I am looking into going to a Fossil dig (looking at the Marmarth Foundation and Paleoadventures) over the summer. I have noticed that some digs specify you have to pay for some of your finds ie T Rex teeth. Anyone have any advice on how much I should spend on T Rex tooth? Or able to give me a crash course on appraising their worth? I dont want to just shell out $$ over a tooth that isnt worth half the amount I paid.
  8. Being from California, we have never hunted the Peace River. We will be in the Naples area for a few days. Is anyone willing to take us out for a hunting trip? Can offer an exchange experience for Shark Tooth Hill in Bakersfield. This is an example of what we find!
  9. Montana fossils need identification

    Hello all, I am new to fossil hunting. I found these on my in-laws ranch in Montana. They are still in place and exposed to weather. Is there any way to find out what they are from? They are definately bone fossils. What part of an animal would have a thin area of bone surrounded by thick bones? The center area are very thin bones and the perimeter is much thicker bone. Thanks, Joe
  10. Wealden bone

    An unidentified bone-like specimen from Wealden supergroup, Hastings subgroup (Cretaceous, Valanginian). Scalebar 1 cm. Looks like a medium-size reptile bone, but which bone and which reptile (if it actually is a reptile)? Any help would be very appreciated.
  11. Well Hello everyone.. As promised here are some of the pictures of our finds with a group of about 25 at the Ladonia Fossil Park on the North Sulphur River. We had a great time searching thru the pebbles and edges of the cliffs. a couple of bone fragments were found but nothing major. We found several gastropods in some matrix and did some sifting at the gravel bars. We did find a broken arrow head but no shark teeth in the area. Here are some pictures of our finds. Enjoy as I do have some questions i'll ask on the ID Forum.

  14. Bones maybe

    Ok here are some interresting finds, I suspect they are fossils, suspiciously looking like bones, some occasions there's indication of merrel. Location: edge of Moni formation, 3km from sea, 3-5million years old. Under the very end of a series of limestone slabs, in a layer of mud. All in a 2 square meter radious, attaching also some I could not remove from there. diameters vary from 5mm to 35mm and the longest is 20cm. Near by I found also oyster parts and other bivalves and a couple of plant shaped white material embeded in stone. here we go: 1) all together 2-4) sample 1 5-9) sample 2 see next post for the rest

  16. Hello everyone! I need some help identifying these bones. I've narrowed them down to being antiquus or possibly bison bison. Even had a specialist describe them to possibly be Camelops...These were located in Southwestern Oklahoma.
  17. Leg bone

    Same Creek. We have a large pelvis too.
  18. Cretaceous bone

    Recently I purchased a collection of shark teeth from Big Brook, NJ. This specimen came with it. I think it is a reptile humerus, however, it doesn't look like turtle/crocodile bones. I have no idea who it may come from - mammal/lizard/dinosaur? Sorry for the image quality.
