  1. 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.
  2. Crocodile bone

    From the album Holzmaden

    A 6 cm long rest of a crocodile bone from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden. After a bit of prep: And finished: Crocodile bones in the Posidonia Shale are much rarer than Ichthyosaur material.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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
  6. 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 .
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. What is this? Croc scute?

    Can anyone identify this for me? I would think it was a crocodile scute, except Ive never seen that shape before.
  11. Creekin' for Shark Teeth!

    @Cris and myself went on another brutally hot fossil hunt to the creek yesterday. We went for just a few hours, and were very pleased with the results! We found a couple roughed up Megalodon teeth, some very nice Mako's, a big crocodile tooth, and my favorite find of the day was a killer three-toed horse tooth! I'm gonna go rest my back now
  12. Hello again, I found this small reptile-like piece on the beach in SW Florida. Pics show both sides. One side looks like turtle shell so my guess would be a turtle scute. What do you think?
  13. Cretaceous crocodile; likely Dyrosaurus

    From the album Marine reptiles and mammals

    Unidentified Cretaceous crocodile species, suggested by multiple people, to appear to be a Dyrosaurus, came from the second phosphatic layer of a phosphate mine(what a shocker!)around the suburbs of Khouribga, Morocco. Original teeth, not replacements. Have gone through and cleaned up the base of some of the ones that had some sand around them.
  14. Mosasaur or crocodile teeth?

    Dear all, I started this new topic to receive your help in identify those teeth. I bought them many, many years ago as crocodile teeth. I do not remember exactly, but maybe I bought the bigger one in Morocco (not sure!). Today I would say that are mosasaur teeth. Crocodile or mosasaur? Thank you!
  15. @Cris and myself went out to the creek a few days in hopes of finding some fossils! It was HOT, there were bugs everywhere, and thunderstorms all around, but we still had a fun day. The fossil finds were not as plentiful as hoped for, but not every day can be insane! We still had an amazing time and ended up coming home with some cool fossils. Photo of the finds is below if you can't watch the video!
  16. Crocodile jaw

    i don't know much at all about Cretaceous crocodiles other than there were a ton of them. From what I hear, so many it's difficult to ID even if you have a good amount of an animals fossils, unless it's one of the number of very unique looking species that have a clear signiture. Sadly I'm guessing this fits into the former;difficult/near impossible to ID from just this. *Its a Cretaceous species, from the second phosphatic layer of the phosphate mines in the suburb of Khouribga, Morocco.
  17. Quick ID pt. 1: Croc verts?

    These two vertebrae were found in a Lance formation channel deposit last month. The guide w/ me said they were both crocodile. I thought I would post their pictures see what you all think. 1. Cervical?
  18. Steneosaurus tooth

    From the album Holzmaden

    A 1.2 cm long Steneosaurs (crocodile) tooth from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden (Lower Jurassic). Because the tooth is that filigree I didnt prep it further. Another image:
  19. Steneosaurus tooth

    From the album Holzmaden

    A not so bad 1.5 cm long Steneosaurus tooth from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden. The prep work was very hard because the tooth is quite fragile. Another picture:
  20. Now I have seen many people state their fossils are from the kem kem beds and this normally follows taouz or begga ..but what exactly is this magically formation that gives us so many fossils? Well to start with the kem kem beds are composed in my opinion of two formation the earliest being the Aoufous and the earlier being the Ifezouane, and thats great but what are there how can I tell if my fossil dinosaur tooth comes from either one of these formations? That's a good question and while the Ifezouane formation to me remains a much of a mystery as I have only ever dug in this area twice here is a general description the fossils are usually lighter in color can range anything from light sand to heavy conglomerate depending on where you dig, the fossils from this formation are normally more water worn and the layer that produces the greatest abundance are usually fast moving river deposits. Now onto the formation I know too well at this point and how do I know it so well? that's a good question the area I dig is only comprised of the aoufous formation. How do I know this well you can keep digging downwards but you get nothing this area missed out on the earlier formation and for this reason I keep it a knowledgeable secret not for stop people from having fun but this area only the father and son mine (and they claim the land is theirs ...i'm not going to get into politics in this topic) but now comes a further question well there is just the aoufous you are digging in yeah? ....well nope there are four layers to this formation mostly comprised of clay and sand but always a mix of two these photographs might help show this the bottom aka the floor is a layer and the roof is also a layer.
  21. Theropod Teeth and Claw Segment

    Forgive me, for I am new here. So I purchased these two teeth and a (ID’d as) crocodile claw segment at my local gem and mineral show for $10 each. These were identified by the director of my local geology museum as potentially being from the Lance Creek formation in Wyoming, but he said that I may need to wait for another paleontologist who works at Hell Creek to come back and take a closer look at the serrations. The second tooth, however, has the color for a Kem Kem specimen due to its reddish-brown color. The director was nice enough to take photos of them. I have more pictures of the teeth and claw segment that I’ll be uploading in the comments.
  22. Crocodile/turtle eggs ??

    Hi! I also found this today but it looks like some kind of eggs.Like a nest with eggs to be exact.I found it in Popovac Marlstone Quarry. Here has been found Diplocynodon moraviensis,so maybe this could be from Him? Also maybe concretion...I need your thoughts! Thanks
  23. Bone?

    Bone? Just found this over the weekend. About 5 to 6 inches. Solid rock. I've found a Mosasaur vert and another mystery bone in the same spot, previously. Would love to hear thoughts.
  24. Metriorhynchid tooth

    From the album Dinosaurs and Reptiles

    Rooted marine croc tooth from Jurassic
