  1. Colleagues, I was collecting on the shoreline of Purse park in Maryland, a beautiful site along the Potomac river. I'm hoping you can help me with your thoughts as to the identification of a few small fossils. The ruler is in centimeters. 1. The first photo appears to be a scute. Is this from a crocodile? 2-4. The next three photos are of a very small fossil which appears to be a double crowned tooth. The base is flat and the crowns are cuboid in shape and flat on top without any ridges. ideas? 5. The final photo is a tiny bone. I'm comfortable that it is fossilized and not modern. It appears to have the shaft of a long bone, or potentially a phalange, but the terminal surface is almost similar to that of an ear bone or the zygomatic arch of a bird skull. I'm a veterinary pathologist and I'm at a loss. I would welcome your guidance.
  2. Mystery Tooth

    Hello! I recently bought a moroccan Carcharodontosaurus tooth and found, to my surprise, this little guy wedged underneath the foam in the box. It's hollow and looks a bit like a croc tooth but I'm not sure. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks in advance!
  3. Steneosaurus tooth

    From the album Holzmaden

    A small and a bit damaged 1.2 cm long Steneosaurus (crocodile) tooth from the Posidonia Shale from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden.
  4. Last Saturday I was in the quarry Kromer (Posidonia Shale, Lower Jurassic) for the first time of the year. Maybe some of you already noticed this topic: http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/93302-prepping-a-plate-with-some-ichthyosaur-vertebrae/ Beside of this plate I also found some other cool things but firstly here is a picture of the quarry: You are allowed to search in the heaps on the left behind the white car. The material isn't that bad at the moment. I was there about 6 hours and I found about 6 teeth. I already prepped three Stenosaurus (crocodile) teeth: 1 cm long: 1.8 cm long: (the best one) And 1.2 cm long: (damaged) I also found this fish: The cross section is about 5 cm long and it will need very much prep work... I don't think that I will do this one in the near future although a friend and expert said that this is a kinda nice find! My favourite finds were the bones. I found several incomplete ones which I didn't take home but also the plate with the vertebrae and another plate with some bones on it. Here is a picture of one of the visible bones: I think that should be an Ichthyosaur Humerus but I am not entire sure. I will post some more pictures of it tomorrow and after the prep. There are also a couple of ribs on the plate so it could be interesting! And for all the invertebrate fans. Here is a sweet little ammonite: Thanks for watching!!
  5. Steneosaurus tooth

    From the album Holzmaden

    A very small (a bit less than 1 cm long) Steneosaurus (crocodile) tooth from the Posidonia Shale from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden. Another picture:
  6. Steneosaurus tooth

    From the album Holzmaden

    A 1.8 cm long Steneosaurus (crocodile) tooth from the Posidonia Shale in the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden. The prep work took about 1 hour with my air pen and my sandblaster. Some more pictures:
  7. Nothing to crazy going on today. My wife found this piece of bone and she wants to know what it is. My initial thought is it was some random piece of croc but now that I’m looking at it closer I’m really unsure. Take a look tell me what you think
  8. Is this a tooth or rock thoughts?

    Hi can’t figure out if this is a rock or something else? Found on the beach in Myrtle Beach S.C. I’m leaning towards rock but would love your input.
  9. Hi everyone, Im looking at a bunch of stuff that someone got from the big fossil expo this month, but I want to be sure of what is what before I do anything. There's a few things way beyond what I could potentially get, but I'm just curious about in general. These are all Moroccan, and most, if not all, are Kem Kem. are these first 4 pics spinosaur? With the teeth I know the 2 on the top&left are probably carchar teeth, but I'm wondering about the other 2. In the 2nd picture, I'm guessing the right one is a spinosaur vert, right? What about the other one? I'm sure it would probably be very hard to tell with just a single rib, but could the rib be spinosaurus? It seems to match some museum spino skeleton ribs, but that's the best I can figure out:/
  10. Hey Everyone! This is the 3rd and final video we did with our buddy Bob from Canada. We hunted sharks teeth for 2 days and this was definitely the more productive of the two! We found a beautiful little juvenile Meg, a huge crocodile toe bone, and a bunch of beautiful teeth and other fossils. It was a great time and we can't wait for Bob to make it back down south!
  11. Maryland Paleocene 2/17/19

    Headed out to the potomac this morning and man was it nice out. Hit low tide and made my way to the cliffs, which all fallen right now btw. Found some nice sand tigers today’s and some smaller beaten otodus. Highlights of the day were a nice little croc tooth and a croc vert which is a first for me. I don’t seem to find much bone in the Aquia formation.
  12. Croc Jaw w/Unerupted Tooth

    From the album Lance fm. Microsite Finds

    After cleaning some of the excess dirt off the fossil I found that it had a tooth still unerupted. One of the cooler fossils I found on this trip. Late Cretaceous (Maastrichtian~ 66 mya) Lance formation
  13. Crocodile Jaw pt.1

    From the album Lance fm. Microsite Finds

    I found this piece and initially thought it could be champsosaur, later on some forum members believed it to be crocodilian so it likely belonged to Borealosuchus, Brachychampsa or another unnamed genus. Late Cretaceous (Maastrichtian~ 66 mya) Lance formation
  14. Crocodile Tooth

    From the album Lance fm. Microsite Finds

    cf. Borealosuchus sternbegii Late Cretaceous (Maastrichtian~ 66 mya) Lance formation
  15. Crocodile Vertebra

    From the album Lance fm. Microsite Finds

    cf. Borealosuchus sternbergii/ Brachychampsa montana Late Cretaceous (Maastrichtian~ 66 mya) Lance formation
  16. Crocodile Tooth

  17. Skull fragment ?

    Hi everyone, I was given this fragment of a bone by my friend which he got from Morocco. He was told that it is part of a skull from spinosaurus but I am sceptical about it. I don't have any experience in identifying fossils but done some research on the net and it looks to me like a part of a skull from crocodile. Like I said I am a newbie so it might be something completely different. Can anyone help me, is it even possible from these photos?
  18. Croc Scute or Drum Plate?

    Hey all. I'm wondering if this fossil I found at Green Mill Run, NC is a crocodilian scute or the dental plate of a drumfish as I believe either can be found at this location.
  19. Recently you could find "many" bones and teeth in a "Bonebed" in a quarry near Buttenheim in Germany. Too bad I was a bit too late to search in this Bonebed. As I was there it was still possible to find something but the layer was buried under about 1 meter dirt. So I couldn't really find something there. All bones and teeth come from the Toarcian. This thread of @Kasia inspired me to buy some teeth and bones from there too. So thank you for the inspiration Here are my acquirements: I bought three Steneosaurus (crocodile) teeth: The first one is about 1. 3 cm long: Detailed: The next one is a big one with a length of 2 cm. This one was found in Altdorf: The last one is damaged and small (0.8 cm long) Beside of these Croc teeth I also bought some Ichthyosaur material from there: A 1.1 cm long tooth which could be quite nice if someone didn't glued it that bad... I am not sure what I will do with this one because there seems to be another tooth in the matrix and I will maybe try to break it and glue it a bit better. Too bad the teeth are extremely fragile so I am not sure what I will do... And another small Ichthyosaur tooth with a length of 0.6 cm: And last but not least three small Ichthyosaur vertebrae: All three are a bit bigger than 2 cm. All in all I have to say that I am quite satisfied with my purchase expecially because I didn't had to pay too much money for them. Thanks for viewing
  20. This supposed real Cretaceous croc from Khourigba, Morocco is up for auction and, uh, isn't this just a painted cast with some real croc teeth thrown in?
  21. Kem Kem crocodile tooth

    I stumbled upon this neat crocodile tooth from the Kem Kem Beds, and I was wondering if there's any possibility of labeling it beyond crocodyliform? Any help would be appreciated!
  22. Can anybody tell what this vertebra is from? I believe it's from Kem Kem. *would this be a rib cage vert?
  23. Spinosaurus Jaw Piece? Or Crocodile?

    So I found this item online. And I've been looking for a jaw piece from a Spinosaurus for a while, and then tripped over this. However... I'm a bit in doubt with this one. Is this possibly a crocodile fossil? The teeth seem to be "long enough" to me, for it to be a spinosaurid, and the picture showing the roots from below seems to be not "completely conical" like most crocs. But then again I could be wrong, the teeth and jaw-pieces of kem kem crocs and spinosaurs do look very much alike, if only seen from "small" fragments like this one. So I find it a bit hard to determine on my own. What do you think?
  24. Hello I need your help again. I am thinking since few days if i should buy this " raptor" claw. But i am Not sure if its a raptor claw. The mesure is 1.9 mm And its from the Kem Kem beds, morocco. So what you think about that?
