    Ø7.5cm. Also known as H.birkelundi Fox Hills Formation Maastrichtian Late Cretaceous Found near E. Rapid City, South Dakota, USA
  2. trying to identify another find

    The front, back, side and bottom of whatever this could be? I could not find anything to measure it with but for now hopefully the pictures alone help for the meantime. The shape of it reminds me of a bone for some reason so that's my guess as to what it could be; not quite sure of what this texture on it is though, i scraped a bit of it off fairly easily and it was dusty brown coming off of it, but not too hard when scraping the surface it barely had any resistance. I tried scraping the exposed part of my other find; the iron concretion to compare the 2 and the concretion was much more durable on it's exposed part to try ruling out if it is just another ironstone concretion. It was found in the same brook called "big brook preserve" in central new jersey in the united states. Another possibility that I've came up with is that this find might be a concretion but not nearly as old and formed yet. Right now it could be anything. Thank you to whoever responds and helps with this post; very much appreciated.
  3. Identification assistance

    I need assistance with identification of several items. Any thoughts. North Texas cretaceous.
  4. MONTANA, Rosebud County find but within eyesight of Garfield County. This was not found in situ but recovered at the bottom of a wash along with dozens of other fragments. The smaller piece attached below is from the same section. Size of dental battery is 9"x4". Size of smaller tooth section is 3"x2".
  5. Hays County, Texas

    This may be a wild goose hunt, but my teens brought back two rocks (private land, permitted collection) near Wimberley, Texas in Hays County. I'm hoping to have some rough idea of if they are fossils and what general family they may have fallen into. I apologize for the lack of a ruler as I am not at home. The large disk shaped possible fossil is about an inch and a quarter across. The larger flat one is about an inch and a half. If anyone has recommended resources for better understanding the geology and fossil history of this area, I would be grateful for any direction.
  6. Following the naming convention of others before me, I had the 1st hunting trip of the new decade (at least at Big Brook!). I was the only one in the parking lot 1/1/20. I think I've actually hunted all three holidays this season, and enjoyed the nice time in nature. Here are some of my finds. Andy
  7. I took my 8 yr old nephew to NSR, North Sulfer River today and found a few things but could not ID these. Any help would be awesome
  8. Hello, so i was thinking about buying this tooth, what do you think of it? is it real? Thanks.
  9. So I recently got this Baltic amber and I found out that there is a test that includes water and salt and if the amber sinks then it's fake but if it floats, it's real and mine sank but I'm not sure could you please examine it yourself? And also the spino tooth if you can. Thanks
  10. I recently came across the young earth theory (the theory that earth is 10.000 years old and dinosaurs coexisted with humans and traveled with Noah and his ark) and of course i thought it was unfeasible but one common argument they keep having is why are we finding soft tissues, proteins and other biochemicals in fossils like triceratops, t-rex and other dinosaur bones of course that doesn't mean DNA BUT they shouldn't have been preserved because such biochemicals don't get preserved after so much time. Another one is that some old fossils are still close to the surface when they should be buried really deep. So what are your thoughts on these arguments, in my opinion this theory is ridiculous but i'd love to learn the answers. Thanks (PS sorry for asking that many questions these days its just that im new to the forum and have lots of questions)
  11. Spinosaurus and sigilmassasaurus

    Hello so could someone please explain the situation with sigilmassasaurus and spinosaurus was it the same dinosaur? was sigilmassasaurus bigger? Thanks
  12. Dinosaurs in Greece

    Because i live in Greece i wanted to know if any fossils of large extinct animals (like dinosaurs or big mammals) have been found in Greece because when i search it i get no valid results so could you help me?
  13. Was Spinosaurus a crocodile ?

    So i recently visited this forum and i read somewhere that we haven't yet discovered spinosaurus legs and its appearance regarding its feet and legs may be just speculation. The argument that was made was whether spinosaurus was a species of crocodile rather than a dinosaur because he may had small legs. So could that be the case?
  14. Hello together, I have been finding online offers of feathers in Burmite recently, some look rather like recent birds´, other look structurally different at least to the everyday feather you get, the later often called dinosaur feathers. Price range is enormous. Any advice on how to recognice the good ones? I wouldn´t expect to afford a nonavian dinosaur feather, but a cretacious Bird would be nice, if real. Thanks in advance, J
  15. Cap Blanc Nez - France

    Together with my father I went to Cap Blanc Nez in France last sunday. The weather was good, no wind and a beautiful clear sky. Ideal to go to Cap Blanc Nez. It's about an hour drive form where I live. The goal was to find my first ammonite since I have never found one before. I'm still a total noob at hunting fossils. Thanks to some tips from Mantoccerasman i finally found my first ammonites. And I'm very proud of it. Wonderful feeling to find those traces of life from million years ago. Wednesday I tried the preparation of the fossils I've found. It was the first time ever that I did this but I'm pretty proud of the result Most of the ammonites are probably Mantelliceras sp. A friend of mine did the determination of she oyster-like shell, it's an inoceramide sp.
  16. Eggshell ID Pyroraptor?

    Eggshell experts out there, came across this fragment said to be Pyroraptor South of France. This is the only picture provided...is it rare and is it Pyroraptor?
  17. Some recent finds of mine Group #1 S texanus?
  18. I went to the Cretacious!

    I spent the day at Old Hunstanton, and these are mostly from the Hunstanton formation, with one from the Ferriby Chalk formation. These are the ones that stumped me, but thought were worth picking up. I found belemnites and brachiopods but sadly no echinoids or crinoids. 108-99 mya.
  19. Gastropod Fossils Morocco.jpg

    From the album MY FOSSIL Collection - Dpaul7

    Gastropod Fossils Boujdour, Western Sahara, Morocco Cretacious Period - 100 million years old The Gastropoda or gastropods, more commonly known as snails and slugs, are a large taxonomic class within the phylum Mollusca. The class Gastropoda includes snails and slugs of all kinds and all sizes from microscopic to Achatina achatina, the largest known land gastropod. There are many thousands of species of sea snails and sea slugs, as well as freshwater snails, freshwater limpets, land snails and land slugs. The class Gastropoda contains a vast total of named species, second only to the insects in overall number. The fossil history of this class goes back to the Late Cambrian. There are 611 families of gastropods known, of which 202 are extinct and appear only in the fossil record. Kingdom: Animalia Phylum: Mollusca Class: Gastropoda Order: Murchisoniina Family: Phanerotrematidae
  20. From the album MY FOSSIL Collection - Dpaul7

    Fossil Tooth, Onchopristis, Saw Fish Occidental Sahara Desert, South Morocco Cretacious Period (79-145 million years ago) Onchopristis is a genus of extinct giant sawfish that lived in the Lower Cretaceous to Upper Cretaceous in North Africa and New Zealand. It had an elongated snout lined laterally with barbed teeth. Onchopristis is a large sawfish, known from remains throughout North America, North Africa and New Zealand. It was very large, up to 8 m (26.2 ft) long when fully grown. As with modern sawfish, Onchopristis's eyes were on top of its head, to spot predators rather than prey, and its mouth and gills were under its body. Kingdom: Animalia Phylum: Chordata Class: Chondrichthyes Order: Sclerorhynchiformes Family: Sclerorhynchidae Genus: Onchopristis
  21. While hunting through some rocks on a hillside that contained baculite and ammonite pieces as well as lots of small snail concretions I came across many of these. They look kind of like trilobites but not quite. More like a small ray. This is in central Montana and I included a picture of the general rock for reference. Any ideas? Thanks. Please ignore the pill box in the background they keep an old guy going.
  22. Fort Union Leaf Or Snail, Or Cone?

    I found this with the leaves at my favorite site. I believe it is Fort Union shale and is in central Montana. What do you think? Leaf? Cone? Snail? Notice the partial leaf with it. Thanks
  23. Cretacious Shark Tooth Id

    Found these at Post Oak Creek but unsure of what kind of shark they are from. One I think isa small posterior makrel shark but Iwill leaveit to the experts. Thanks for any help.
  24. Post Oak Creek Finds

    Here are just a few of my finds over the last month in Sherman,Tx. My son and I have really enjoyed getting dirty. We have found tons but these are some of our best. Not bad for beginners?
  25. Aussie Unknown

    I started seiving again last week and found this amoungst the bits and pieces. It is from central australia and is albian in age . Found in a marine sediment. I will appoligise for the photo in advance but I havent got a macro camera so I have used the macro setting and added some shots from a digital microscope to show some detail. The scale on the grid paper is 1mm and the fossil is symetrical in shape. Thanks Mike
