  1. Unidentified tooth and weird dino bone

    Hi! I have some question marks about some of my fossils that I bought early as a child. I have a tooth that was labelled as coelophysis, I know its not a coelophysis, everything about it is wrong for being that, I cant remember where it was found , but if someone has an idea what it possibly/maybe can be its good enough for me. The other fossil is a dinosaur Bone fragment which according to what i can remember is from hell creek formation and was labelled as triceratops. Im mostly curious to know why it looks like it does because it doesnt look like a normal fragment to me, it also has some unusal textures within a convex circle. Sorry for the mediocre photos, My mobile camera has the Specs of a potato. If you need to see more or better photos, just let me know and I will use another camera
  2. What are these

    So this is at Texas Tarrant County near a large pond. Not sure if the tooth is crocodile, fish, marine dinosaur or small mammel. The rock with circles on it I'm guessing is an imprint of a shell. And the other one I think is bone in Rock not sure if it's like a tooth if so I guess bovine or triceratops but I'm not sure if it's a recent bone or a bone from the dinosaur era (or if it's a bone at all). Also a general question of how do you know if something is a modern bone or dinosaur bone, I found some level surface and you can see the face of the bone, the rest is in the ground and it's near a pond. If anyone has answers to these questions that will be great. Excuse my lack of knowledge in these areas I'm new and I've just started with no current knowledge in dinosaurs.
  3. Mystery Judith River Dinosaur Bone

    Here’s one that has me scratching my head. It’s a bone I found in the Judith River Formation of Montana recently, I picked up these two pieces and later realized they go together. They’re definitely placed properly, but the shape is strange and I can’t ID it. My initial thoughts were some type of hadrosaur toe bone, but I can’t find any close matches online. What are y’all’s thoughts on this one?
  4. Hello everyone, had a super quick trip to the cretaceous creeks of new jersey and found this particularly interesting large bone fragment, likely it is a chunk of miscellaneous bone material but it reminds me alot of a scute like ankylosaurus or some sort of other bone scute especially the edge, or from maybe something like a large turtle but I am entirely not sure if it's dinosaur, marine reptile, etc or if there is anyway to tell, looks super suspicious to me anyways so if anyone has any ideas I'd definitely love to hear them. (If more pictures are needed I will definitely be able to get some more angles if necessary)
  5. Not sure exactly what bone this is and what dinosaur but any help will be appreciated. I know it is from Alberta and that it is dinosaur but here are some better pictures hopefully it helps. Thank you.
  6. western arizona in origin, looks cool but its probably just a rock? thanks for your time. appreciated, roy
  7. I have recently purchase two large pieces of Jurassic aged bone from the Morrison Formation near the Dinosaur National Monument in Northwest Colorado. They seemed to be shaped in a way that it maybe possible to give them a general ID, I don't know if it can of course go as far as ID the specific dinosaur of course but if anyone with experience may know what kind of bones they are, any help would be appreciated as I would like to label them for the collection. As it stands the first larger one I believe to be likely sauropod bone or some other large herbivore while the second one I think may be theropod of some sort. Also if it's possible would anyone be able to tell what kind of bone they maybe like for example limb, leg, metatarsal, etc. Any feedback will be greatly appreciated! The larger bone measures nearly 9 1/2 inches long The smaller one measures approximately 6 1/2 inches long
  8. Hi everyone, I was wondering if any of those stones might be pieces of dinosaur bones (or any bones, in fact). They were found in Romania, in a valley of the river close to Hateg. If anyone replies to my question, I have a request: could you please send me a private message? I'm on holidays and I have limited access to a computer, but I receive messages from TFF on my mobile phone, so I will know whether I should keep the stones or get rid of them Thanks a lot for help
  9. Bones, bones, bones

    Hello Forum, I picked up a few fossilized bones....two possibly complete and two partials. The gentleman I got them from could only give suggestions as to what the complete bones are - and no idea at all about the partials. I tried grouping the pictures of each together and numbering the group - hopefully this is helpful rather than not. Pic 1: possibly a dinosaur hand or foot bone Pic 2: no idea. Pic 3: possibly a horse humerus. Pic 4: no idea. Locations: Pic 1 - Fort Crittenden Formation, Pics 2 & 4 - possibly either Fort Crittenden Formation or another location in S/E Arizona Pic 3 - Jacksonville Florida. Thank you for any and all assistance.
  10. I found this ring for sale online that claims it was made from a polished dinosaur bone. I feel like this is a long shot, but can anyone verify if it looks like authentic? The seller says it was originally purchased from Dino Fossils and comes with a COA, but I know anyone can make a COA these days lol. Thanks!
  11. Hi, I got a few chunks of dinosaur bones about 10-30cm long and 20-30cm wide. I used a Geiger counter to check for their radioactivity. The readings ranged from 0.28 usv/hr to 1.9 usv/hr. For those with 1.9 usv/hr, should I be concerned about the potential risk to my health if I put them on display in my living room?
  12. Dinosaur Bone Fossil from Madagascar

    Hi, guys, fossils from Madagascar again. Recently I found out that lots of rocks claimed to be dinosaur bone fossils are imported from Madagascar to China and they are polished to make ash trays or other utensils. To me, this destroys the scientific value of the fossils. I have attached photos of some of the unpolished fossils. Are they really dinosaur bones? By the way, I love this forum, and you guys are really helpful and have a lot of expertise.
  13. MISC DINOSAUR BONE A.jpg

    From the album MY FOSSIL Collection - Dpaul7

    Dinosaur Bone Fragment - with Polished End SITE LOCATION: Unknown TIME PERIOD: Probably Cretaceous. (from 75 to 65 million years ago) Dinosaurs are a diverse group of reptiles of the clade Dinosauria that first appeared during the Triassic period. Although the exact origin and timing of the evolution of dinosaurs is the subject of active research, the current scientific consensus places their origin between 231 and 243 million years ago. They became the dominant terrestrial vertebrates after the Triassic–Jurassic extinction event 201 million years ago. Their dominance continued through the Jurassic and Cretaceous periods and ended when the Cretaceous–Paleogene extinction event led to the extinction of most dinosaur groups 66 million years ago. The fossil record indicates that birds are modern feathered dinosaurs, having evolved from theropod ancestors during the Jurassic Period. As such, birds were the only dinosaur lineage to survive the mass extinction event. Notice the marrow structure in the polised end! Kingdom: Animalia Phylum: Chordata Class: Dinosauriformes Order: Dinosauria

  15. Any Idea What These Are?

    My 8 year old son is turning into quite the dinosaur enthusiast and has begun to collect fossils. We are slowly learning the risks and joys of collecting. We found these three over the weekend. Any ideas what they may be? I was told the sandy orange bone may or may not be a dinosaur bone and the darker ones are from the Ice Age but they were not sure from which Ice Age animal.
  16. I found this in online,the headline said it a dinosaur bone,its really look gem like and smoth surface...may it be a real dinosaur bone???
  17. Big Fossil Vertebrae?

    I found what I think is a large vertebrae in north Jackson county ky. I think the stone looked like marine deposits in the area I found it in. Is this a vertebrae? I think I can make out cortex bone on the edges in some places, artery holes, trabeculae under the cortex and a large area in the center of the bone for a disc. If so what animal did it come from?

  18. Well, I figured I might show what I've been up to, but I am unsure as to where this topic fits, so please do move this thread to a more appropriate forum if this subject is not fit for this one, Admins After my recent trip to Australia to see my fiancè and fellow forum member Ash, I had a fair bit of petrified wood laying around. The picture below only shows a small portion of the amount Ash and I collected, but I decided to take and cut the orange chunk in the left of the photo into slabs. I had just recently learned that the local rock shop in town actually had a "cabbing" machine, and in exchange for a few slices, I could use them for free to make cabochons of my own. So after shaping a few up onto "dop sticks", I did just that! I was rather surprised how different they turned out-how stunning compared to the original inconspicuous chunk of wood they originally came from! I also cabbed a few pieces of dinosaur bone the shop had laying around; you can see the end results in the photos below They're not perfect (I am a beginner), but just thought I would share how something that is often passed over in collecting can turn out stunning if you put a little work in The first single cab photo you see is the first one I ever did, and I have just recently had it wire-wrapped in sterling silver (the last photo). However, the last photo doesn't show the same quality as the first does due to poor lighting. Nonetheless, it's been a fun hobby to keep me occupied during the winter months I hope you enjoyed this brief update!
  19. A small, Dinosaur bone

    or A small Dinosaur, bone. The following are microscope photos of three sections of a small piece of Dinosaur bone. The thin section slides were made using a Hi-Tech Diamond flat lap grinding machine. The first photo is the actual bone segment, approximately 22mm long and 12mm in cross section. The next three photos are full scans of the three cross section followed by a few selected sections. I used two microscopes, a Labomed LB-592 Polarizing and a Zeiss Stemi 305edu with a homemade polarizing kit. Additional Dinosaur bone images Crossed Polars Stage was rotated 45° Plane light, stereo microscope Same section with the Darkfield stop in place.

  21. What In The Hell Creek Is It?

    Just got back from a dig in the Hell Creek formation. Everything from Hadrosaur, ray teeth, champsosaur verts, gar scales, turtle, ceratopsian frill and theropod teeth were in the immediate area of this bone. We will be heading to the lab in the morning to begin prep, but I was just wondering if any of you seasoned experts might have any idea what this is. Everything was pretty jumbled and most of the bone in the area we were digging was pretty degraded (more like coffee grounds), but this was one of the few in decent shape that seemed to be diagnostic. I will post better pics once it is prepped.
  22. Dinosaur Bone?

    Could I have help to I'd this please? Some better pictures.....not polished just water on it.
  23. My wife spotted this on the side of the road as we were leaving White Mound in Nebo Oklahoma. It may be surrounded by shell because it is very brittle and flakes apart. The bone itself is about 15in long and pretty strong. It weighs maybe 10- 15lbs. Any ideas of what it would be? An uncle of mine believes its a jaw bone.h

  25. Opalised Dinosaur Vertebra (Photo 1)

    From the album Opalised Fossils

    Name: Opalised Dinosaur (Caudal?) Vertebra Age: 110 million years old Locality: Lightning Ridge, NSW, Australia Formation: Griman Creek Formation Length: 16mm end to end Notes: This is an opalised dinosaur vertebra from Australia. I originally bought it as an opalised 'reptile' vertebra but it's ID as being a dinosaur vertebra was confirmed by one of the leading experts on the opalised fossils of Lightning Ridge. It is likely a juvenile ornithopod or theropod vertebral centrum, missing the tall neural arch. It is semi-transparent when held up to a strong light and is an exceptionally rare specimen. So far it is the only vertebrate fossil in my opalised fossils collection but I hope I am able to acquire more soon. Specimens like this very rarely come up for sale as most of them end up in museum collections due to their rarity and scientific value.
