  1. Had the beach to myself yesterday and had a great morning! Two and a half hour of all surface finds, no sifting. One of the best crocs I’ve seen from Douglas definitely made my week!
  2. Douglas Point, MD

    Went to Douglas Point, MD today with the goal of getting some angel shark teeth. I found 7 for my collection.
  3. Found some really nice teeth on the Maryland side of the Potomac River. A lot of really nice sand tiger teeth, a nice Otodus, and two really pretty small croc teeth, and two partial croc teeth
  4. NJ Cretaceous osteoderm/mouth plate

    Hey everyone, i have this interesting Croc osteoderm/fish mouth plate. I am leaning a lot more towards Croc, but this one looks pretty different than usual because of the dimples being a different shape and arranged in a row; maybe it’s just from a different part of the body. It would also be complete if it’s Croc, which is unusual. Size is about 3/4”. It is definitely not a concretion in case some pics are misleading (some bony structure is still visible on the back of the specimen when looking at it in person). @non-remanié @frankh8147 @Trevor @Plax @Al Dente @MarcoSr Thanks!
  5. NJ Cretaceous Croc or Mosasaur?

    Hey everyone, I got this tooth from Jersey that struck me as being something different at first glance. The general shape, very pronounced cutting edges, and concentric layers visible at the base made me think that it’s not Mosasaur, but rather some type of Croc. If it’s Croc it is something other than Thoracosaurus which makes it a unique tooth. It’s about 3/4”. Thanks! Joseph @non-remanié @frankh8147 @Al Dente @siteseer @MarcoSr @Carl
  6. nj cretaceous fish or croc ?

    although cracked in half just wondering with the hollow center,fish tooth Enchodus or small croc ? thanks
  7. New Jersey Cretaceous tooth (croc?)

    Hello, I found this little tooth yesterday in Monmouth County New Jersey. It has two really well defined cutting edges and is heavily faceted. It doesn't look anything like the other Xiphactinus teeth I've found so I was thinking croc (not Thoracosaur)? It really looks like an enchodus tooth but the root says differently. As always, all help is greatly appreciated!
  8. After big rains Idecide to prospect in some eocene outcrops of my country I begin in a career with marine deposits. A lot of differents fossils can be found like echinids, oyster, crabs, shark, gastropods
  9. Kem Kem bones thread

    Hello everybody, this is all my new bones from morocco, i need many precision on it, if you could. I know they are few publication of Kem Kem but you coule maybe help me. Firstly, i have those two vert, i don’t have idea for the identification. The smallest is clearly a reconstruction, perhaps with a piece of rib.
  10. NJ Cretaceous Tooth - Croc, Mosasaur?

    Found in NJ Cretaceous stream. Not sure if its sawfish, croc or possible mosasaur. Thoughts?
  11. Croc tooth (Ukraine) ?

    Is it crocodile tooth? Western Ukraine, Lviv region.
  12. Lance formation tooth

    I found this tooth in some matrix from the Lance formation from Wyoming. It reminds me a little of a croc tooth, but could it be something else. The division markers are 1mm. Thanks
  13. Hello everybody So this fossil here bothers me for some time now because I'm still not sure what to make of it. I'm especially asking for the roots in the jaw and if they are a composite. Also this one tooth growing out of the root of the root looks odd to me. Is this a genuine fossil or are these roots / tooth put in the jaw? I'm used to these fake teeth put on jaws as a composite form Morocco but with this one I'm still not sure what am I looking at. On one side you can actually see the root in the jaw. Would something like this be fabricated as well? And is the ID correct? It's described as a partial maxillary of an Elosuchus sp. from the Ifezouane Formation, KemKem from Taouz/Morocco. No word about any restoration/fabrication or what so ever. Size is 3.48 in (8,84 cm).
  14. Crocodilian tooth

    From the album Macro Florida Fossils

  15. Fossil Armor

    From the album Macro Florida Fossils

    I think this is crocodilian
  16. I watched a show on PBS last night, "When Whales Walked: Journeys in Deep Time." I just happened to notice it on the guide about 45 minutes before it was on. It is actually about more than the evolution of whales, the group having four-footed Early Eocene ancestors. There is a long segment roughly twenty minutes long each on crocodilians, birds, whales, and elephants. I thought it was a good show overall with interviews of researchers I know from their technical articles ( Hans-Dieter Sues, Philip Gingerich, Emmanel Gheerbrant, Christian de Muizon). However, each segment was also a little light on content for the topic and one was especially unclear. The one on birds made it appear that Deinonychus was an ancestor of later birds. They should have showed a chart showing when it lived in the Cretaceous with Archaeopteryx and the Liaoning birds millions of years before. There was a quick view of a family tree that seemed to illustrate that but it went by in a second or two. The segment on whales showed a lot of footage of modern whales and some great background on the "first whale," Pakicetus, but it didn't show any of the whales described in the past twenty years. It just mentioned that there had been recent discoveries. I thought there should have been at least a quick look at Ambulocetus and a few of the increasingly more marine-adapted forms that lived before Basilosaurus. They pretty much jumped from Pakicetus to Basilosaurus to the divergence of toothed and baleen whales. I think they could have spent the two hours just on the whales just as the title of the show led me to believe. I liked the segment on elephants because just as I was expecting the show to skip the earliest known members of the group, they go to Morocco and then talk to Emmanuel Gheerbrant who described Phosphatherium, the first probiscidean, which is known from the same early Eocene phosphate layer as a lot of the shark teeth we see at shows are from. Other extinct forms were descussed as well. Here's a link that takes to an online notice and website: https://www.pbs.org/show/when-whales-walked-journeys-deep-time/ Jess
  17. Croc or spinosaurid teeth? Kem kem

    Hi! Are these teeth croc or spino teeth? , The curvature and the robustness makes me wonder if they could be croc teeth. Both are from Kem Kem Tooth 1:
  18. Croc kem kem tooth

    Hi! I have a rather big croc tooth from kem kem and I was wondering if it could be a Elosuchus tooth because of its size? or should I just label it as Croc indet?
  19. Florida Creek Finds

    I hit my favorite creek spot again and I found a lot more new things than I usually do. I found these teeth that looked like broken shark teeth tips but I realized were to flat to be shark teeth. Sorry the seconds blurry. But they seem to be sharp on one edge and round on the other. And yes I know i have a few croc teeth mixed in.
  20. Moroccan “Croc” Repair

    I got a call last week to pick up a croc skull for repair. I excitedly went to get said skull only to find a rather poorly done fake for me to repair. I said, “you know this is fake right?” The response was “uh, yah. Go ahead and fix it.” So, I have gone from fossil preparation to “art” restoration today. This is what I had to work with. Seems easy enough right? Wrong! The hard part about fixing a fake is understanding how the fake was built in the first place. This is made of random bone fragments cemented into a “matrix” with random croc teeth cemented in place. They didn’t even try to make it look real, clean up the cement, or put teeth in the right place. So, I had to figure out where these things are “supposed to go”. After the repairs were done, I scraped off some of the “matrix” and made a paste with glue to fill the cracks...
  21. Hunting in cretacous

    Hi we the current good weather I managed to spend one day in fossil hunting I searched in upper cretaceous co.tinental deposits with the hope to find some dino remains Undortunately I found all except that : Hybodontidae fresh water shark Allodaposuchus crocodile Solemys turtle scute Dino tendon :
  22. Hi, I have what is described to me as a turtle claw from the Moroccan Phosphates. That's all the info I was given unfortunately. It has a curve as seen from the top view. It measures 44mm long. First up, is this a turtle claw? Second, is it possible to ID its family or species? Third, what could the age be? I am guessing 70.6 - 55 million years old. Fourth, can I narrow down the locality? Thank you for your help.
  23. What kind of tooth is this?

    I found a tooth here online and it claims to be a Raptor tooth from Hell Creek. It has a classic Kem Kem color and kinda looks like a croc tooth?
