  1. I found this claw, toe bones and other bones and teeth on the Brazos River, Texas.
  2. Very nice variety The cut dinosaurus bones fragments. Size is betwen; smallest one 3 cm and bigest is about 6 cm.
  3. Hey all this is my first time posting here! I found a fossil (i think) that i need some help identifying. Its unlike most fossils i have seen. I work in landscaping so i see a lot of rocks, this one was different and appeared to have all sorts of shells and mollusks trapped inside. I cracked it open to find it was full of bones, iridescent bones that looked like an oil sheen had dried over them. I have tried to look up opalization but find mostly plants and nothing really comparable. I need help! More pictures available on request. The pictures do no capture the true sheen of the bones and some of the opal looking substance has started to oxidize i think. You can see where it is starting to peel away. Some of the bones that cracked in half revealed more fossils inside the bones including a large grub worm looking thing sticking out of one. I was only able to fit these 2 pictures per the limit, just ask for more. Thanks for any help!
  4. So I was on a sandbar on the republican river today and found these, along with several others. I think they may be bison bones, possibly ice age, (this is in NE Kansas) but could you guys help out? Thanks. I will upload more pictures soon. PS each piece is about 3 inches on the long lost side and around 1 inch wide (the first one is about 3/4 inches thick), and I haven't cleaned them yet
  5. Mam mnóstwo znalezisk z tego obszaru. Powiem więcej zdjęć w sekcji odpowiedzi. 1. 2. 3.
  6. Hi! Im looking dinosaurus bones with interesting structure and color like from photo. In return I can offer fossils....
  7. A few bones I found in big brook I'm assuming deer raccoon but I just wanted to make sure and if any help how you can I'd if a bone is old or not thanks. I can add more pics if needed thanks for your help
  8. hi guys, yesterday i found this bone while collecting fossils plants , really i dont know if its fossilized or not, maybe not. If not i will keep it anyway, its nice
  9. Hey all, i am planning a trip to Calvert Cliffs in Maryland with my girlfriend, but I was curious if there were any guides that frequently assist people who have never been to the cliffs before. It looks a little intimidating, but perhaps that's because I've never been there. Would you even suggest a guide if one was available? Or is it not crazy to go without one? I just want to be safe there. Could you offer your best advice if I were to go by myself to let's say Brownie's beach? Obviously I'd love to come across a Meg, as I've never found a tooth bigger than 3/4 of an inch before. It would be a thrill id never forget. I most certainly don't want anyone to give up any secret spots, but I'd love to know your best advice on a newbie like myself looking for some better looking fossils. Lastly, do I need to be wading in water to search for megs? I really wanted to strictly search on land (obviously not directly in the cliffs as I know that's illegal, and I wouldn't even if it was legal due to ruining something so naturally pretty). Thanks so much everybody.
  10. Hey all, I am New to the forum, and very happy to be here with all of you. I live close to Philadelphia, but have been traveling to New Jersey to a well known creek that dates back to the Cretaceous period to hunt for fossils. I found this one thing and I have no clue what it is. Perhaps you'd be able to assist? since I can't post too many photos in the same message, I'm going to add a couple more possible fossils that I don't know how to ID. thanks for having me here everybody! brettco
  11. This show has NOT been canceled. This show is still planned. Be there! https://www.facebook.com/events/1849349945343947/
  12. This past weekend in Central VA it was low 70s on Saturday and low 80s on Sunday with an extremely low tide both days, mid-morning. My wife and I, our buddy and 17 y/o son (TFF member Daleksec) and another friend of ours took the boat out on the Pamunkey River Saturday morning for a little fossil hunting / collecting. Since the tide was so low, we decided to start out with some surface hunting at a little beach with a nice Calvert Formation exposure. We immediately hit the jack pot and found some nice sharks teeth and random bone pieces. After finding everything on the surface we all started screening. (This is what my wife and I found Saturday.) The 3 buddies had this much or more in their bags for the day. If anyone knows what this 1" piece of bone that looks like a jaw is, please chime in. After a few hours of collecting and the tide coming in fast, Daleksec noticed an exposed vertebrae on the beach about 6 inches from where I had just picked up a tooth. After some quick exploration this is what we saw. My hand for quick scale. (Yes, I realize everyone's hands are different sized.) We were racing the incoming tide at this point. We didn't know how much of the skeleton was there since we didn't get to explore in either direction. I was pretty sure I saw a humerus and counted 12 vertebrae exposed before we covered it. The tide came in and covered it all about 5 mins after we finished burying the exposed bones in matrix to protect. The bones are literally sitting in the base of the Calvert Formation and right on top of the Old Church Formation. This Old Church exposure is the ONLY Oligocene exposure in VA. Obviously, our fossil plans for Sunday just changed and then we spent the rest of Saturday teasing Daleksec about the raccoons, opossums and deer coming to get "his" skeleton or at least running off with "his" skull. :-) Everyone but he enjoyed the witty banter about "his" disappearing skeleton. With the rising tide we decided to head farther up river to an Eocene / Oligocene contact exposure I know. Checked out the first small area and only 1 small tooth was found. My buddy wanted me to move him around a bunch of overhanging trees and snags. As I dropped him off on the bank (beach all covered by tide at this point), he walks over and picks up THIS!! He gets my attention and said, "I found something. I don't know what it is, but I'm not throwing it away." This is the very 1st Squalodon tooth I've seen found at this Oligocene exposure in 7 years of collecting here. To say I was jealous was an understatement, but I'm glad if someone had to find it and it couldn't be my wife or me, it was him. This pretty much finished up our day and WOW, what a day it was. Sunday in the next post.
  13. I need some help identifying what I think "might" be a mosasaur bone. Also, the skinny, orange items are a mystery as well. I defer to y'alls expertise!
  14. Hi all! Here I share with you a couple of jewels that I discovered a few months ago working on the yellow sandstones of the basal levels of the Ifezouane Formation (Upper Cretaceous Cenomanian of South of Morocco). The truth is that it was a huge surprise !. These are two scapulae, right and left of the same individual. But individual of what? I was astonished to recognize the absolute rarity of its characteristics. It has a very developed proximal epiphysis and with great articulation surface. Distal area is beautifully ornate! The autapomorphies are really rare !. It had been a long time since I had encountered something similar! Now I have begun to look for bibliography on similar remains to begin the first comparisons, but it is being complicated task .... I also enclosed a photo of the level at which I dug it !, fine-grained sandstones lenticularly interleaved (like patches) within gray marls. Any opinions? Thanks!
  15. Hi guys! It's been a while since I've posted here but I wanted to share some of the things we found yesterday out at the beach I know that I have a lot of teeth & stingray parts, but I'm not sure about some of these other bones.. anyone able to make some IDs here? The non-fossil bones were discovered by my husband and he said he thinks they are from a dolphin. I'm interested in finding out info for the photo with 9 items, the brown thing in the center is about one inch for scale. Thanks!
  16. Hello. I recently purchased this composite reptile limb from Hell Creek, and am asking for some identification(s). Seller's Description: This listing is for a composite dinosaur age reptile limb bone from the Hell Creek Formation of MT. These bones were not found together and are likely not from the same species but it creates a neat way to display limb bones. These fossils were found in the Hell Creek fossil beds and date back to the Late Cretaceous about 66 million years ago. The species is unknown but these are definitely small reptile bones from an extinct animal that was living among the dinosaurs! Thanks.
  17. Hello TFF, I own this dinosaur bone that broke. I do not have any experience in prepping dinosaur material so I just wanted to ask what would be best to glue the fossil together or what glue to use? Thanks so much guys!
  18. I know its very difficult to identify the animals these bones may have come from but any help to specify the animals will be very appreciated. They all come from a dredging operation near Houston. Thanks to everyone for your help. I hope to have a fresh group of pieces in the next week or so. I will be glad to add more photos if it would be helpful.
  19. These 3 fairly large fragments have a similar appearance to one another with curved sides. They all come from a dredge operation near Houston Texas. Can anyone identify the animal they came from? They have a resemblance to a fossil earlier suggested to be an ancient turtle. Thanks to everyone.
  20. Trick or Treat. Preparing this years ghoulish display. Two witches pots full of treats to hand out. In one cauldron, Halloween candies for the young kids. The older Treaters get a 'dead thing' if they are brave. They must creep pass the scary creatures and reach into the cauldron to grab a Hadrosaur vertebra. Of course , a hand will try and grab them first. Scream!
  21. I have 3 more unknown fossil bones to identify. They come from the same dredge location near Houston Texas. Any help will be greatly appreciated. You all are very kind to spend the time and effort to offer your expert opinions. Thanks so much.
  22. Hello everyone, my first time here and have high hopes someone can point me in the right direction with these bones. (first 2 pics) All were found within 20 ft each other,dinosaur? Next pic is what looks like teeth or part of shell, and possibly a scute? Then close up of what seems more like cartilage, fish jaw? Dorsal? All came from a D/FW creek.
  23. I would like to know if anyone has used a solution of Vineger/water on a limesand matrix that was attached to some sort of bone and if so what was your results. I'm working on a similar situation and want to remove the matrix without doing any damage to the fossils. Some of the matrix is rather soft and can easily be removed with water and a denial pick while some of the matrix is like a hard concretionary layer that's stuck to the bone. ...Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

  25. More from a creek in north Texas, Cretateous or Pliocene. First pic appears to be a tooth I think, next ones shows what looks like very worn vertebra and yes it's got a purple hue for some reason, was partially exposed in gravel bank. The other object I thought was a turtle carapace when I saw it sticking up out of gravel, but after digging up not so sure esp since it doesn't feel like turtle bone. Sorry for the poor quality phone pics. Having problems with phone or website and somehow that first pic is out of order!
