  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. Crocodile Tooth

    From the album Lance fm. Microsite Finds

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

    From the album Lance fm. Microsite Finds

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

    From the album Lance fm. Microsite Finds

  6. 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?
  7. 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.
  8. 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
  9. 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?
  10. 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!
  11. Can anybody tell what this vertebra is from? I believe it's from Kem Kem. *would this be a rib cage vert?
  12. 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?
  13. 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?
  14. Crocodile ?

    Hi all Can I get some help please. I purchased this little vertebrae for £1.05 no money but quite nice. the label says Crocodile Hell Creek, Montana . I just wanted to check.
  15. I bought this bone in a German store a while ago. It is an "unidentified" bone from the Kem Kem Beds in Morocco. I am not exactly sure what it is, or what it's from, but to me it looks a bit like a small skull element or perhaps a broken-off part of a vertebrate? Are there anyone who can tell what kind of bone this is? It's about 5,5 cm in length.
  16. Potential Crocodile Scute?

    I found this piece on my first ever trip to New Jersey and knew it was something, but was unable to identify it due to my inexperience at the time. 6 years have passed since then and I now recognize the pattern on the specimen to resemble a crocodile scute, if this is accurate I believe it would be my first crocodile specimen from the state. What do you think? It's about 2/3" long.
  17. Ichthyosaur neural spine bone

    From the album Holzmaden

    A 6 cm long rest of an Ichthyosaur neural spine bone from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden. After a bit of prep: And finished:
  18. In this thread I wanna share some fossils from Holzmaden, which I found partly years ago but prepped recently with my new tools. I will not show only bones but also belemnites and other fossils from Holzmaden. All the finds are from the quarry Kromer. Hopefully I will be able to extend this thread step by step! So for today I want to show three bones from the posidionia shale from Holzmaden. Firstly this 3 cm long Ichthyosaur vertebra. Here is a picture of the unprepped piece: As you can see there was only the cross section visible so it was a kinda hard work. I think until now the prep took about 2 hours and I will probably prep it a bit more... but here is a picture of the current state of the vertebra: I am very satisfied with the result until now! Especially because I didn't lost too much of the fossil material in the areas where I had to glue it.
  19. Need ID

    It is from the Khouribgha area. I am not a crocodile specialist, I think it is a Dyrosaurid but maybe someone can be more precise (family) ?. There is a bone on top of it that is is not part of the jaw but I kept it because I think it makes the piece more interesting. Can anybody tell what kind of bone that could be? The first picture is when I just started preparation. The rest when finsihed.
  20. What type of vertebra is this

    Hi does anyone recognise this type of vert. It came with some other material I acquired and I’m not sure what it is. It’s pissibky from the Isle of Wight. thanks Nick
  21. FOSSIL ID Kem Kem Beds

    I was given this by my father as a gift. All he knows, is is it is from the Kem Kem Beds. It looks like it may be a jaw bone on some kind as it has indentations for what looks like teeth? But I can't decide on if it's from a fish, turtle, crocodile, dinosaur or reptile or if it's just a fragmentary piece of bone. I would appreciate it if anyone can shed any light on this! Huge thanks in advance .
  22. I bought this at a garage sale in Tucson the other day. They told me they think they bought it at a museum gift shop.
  23. Is this a fake Moroccan crocodile? Sorry for the bad pics it's at a fossil shop I can try and go back and get better once if people think they need ones that are better.
  24. Croc scute and shark tooth

    Is there any way to narrow this croc scute down to a species? Or at least narrow it down? also, what kind of shark is this tooth from? these are from the phosphate mines in Khouribga, Morocco.
