  1. Help with UK Dinosaur/Reptile Vertebra ID

    I'm trying to help someone ID this vertebra found in Gloucester, UK a few years ago. It's from a Jurassic site and I'm pretty sure it's a theropod vertebra but was wondering if anyone on the forum could help out? I have a theropod tooth from the same place which I might post soon in the hope of narrowing down an ID too. Thanks in advance!
  2. Turtle?

    Hello Here I have two bones. I think one is an ulna? Maybe turle, but I don't have any experience with turtles. It looks like a juvenil bone, I have the feeling that there should be joints but they are not there (not fused?). The second one I also have no exprience with. The cortical layer is so ridiculusly thin... It is so light and hollow, I don't know with what to compair it. Ulna? measurements: 131x32x18mm Hollow bone measurements: 97x30x20mm Thank you for any information
  3. Moroccan Jaw

    Guess who's back I have this piece of I think a left lower jaw from either a crocodile or dinosaur. If I look at the toothsockets they are for round teeth, so crocodile (looking at the size Elosuchus?) or spinosaurid. I am leaning more towards a crocodil. Size: 18x6x2cm Thank you
  4. Moroccan longbone

    Heyy, The next 3 bones. For these ones I feel like there is an obvious explination. Buuut There is a tiny monkey in my head making music... Soo 2 I recognize as longbone one was named Radius crocodile or dinosaur. I think the 3th is a scapula? But with a fused coracoid? Maybe a pubis? Measurements of the longbone: Lengte: 24x6,4x3,7cm and radius(?): Lengte: 17,6x4,4x1,5cm Pubis (?) is lxhxb = 16,7x7x2,8cm Greetings Yasmin
  5. Moroccan Mystery

    Hi Y'all, I am new here During the lockdown (in the Netherlands) I started cleaning and documenting my collection. There are a few things I am not sure about. So if anyone could help, Yes please So this thing I am not sure what I am looking at. The thing that is weird to me is that if you look at it from the tip it lloks like a +. This wants to make me cross out a dinosaur but the bone structure does not look like a fish. Sooo I am a bit confuzed Measurements are LxHXB 24cmx5.1cmx4cm Thank you for looking
  6. Dinosaur Bone from Ganzhou, China

    This bone is about 70cm in length. It is from Ganzhou, Jiangxi Province of China in which a lot of dinosaur eggs were found. Cretaceous Formation. Is it a dinosaur bone?
  7. I saw this from an online store. It was said to be a toe bone of a dinosaur from Madagascar. It is pretty large, is it really a dinosaur toe bone?
  8. Proceratosaurus from Portugal?

    Hello! I have seen this tooth identified as Proceratosaurus from Lourinha (Portugal) The size is 13mm. What do you think? I thought that the proceratosaurus only lived in the UK ... I can not find any publication about this... Thank you so much.
  9. Hello from Germany! I just bought a spinosaurus tooth for my niece (she is a biiig dinosaur fan) online and just wanted to ask you about your opinion. The seller told me before buying that this tooth is glued and repaired. I knew it before and that is no problem to me. I just wanted to make sure that the tooth is real. It is not my target to get one that is NOT repaired. What are your thoughts about this tooth? Is it real? Is it in a good condition? Do you have some information for me? Would be really grateful to get some of your opinions. I have 30 days to send the tooth back in case all of you say that it is a fake. Thanks a million in advance! Best regards André
  10. Tooth - Spinosauridae indet.

    From the album Dinosaurs

    Species: Spinosauridae indet. Age: Cretaceous (Cenomanian), c. 95 million years ago Location: Kem Kem Formation, Morocco Probably the most common dinosaur fossil available on the market, a Kem Kem Spinosaurid tooth. At least two spinosaurid species are known from Kem Kem; Spinosaurus aegyptiacus and Sigilmassasaurus brevicollis. As there are no known teeth of Sigilmassasaurus, comparisons between the two are impossible and determining the genus which the tooth belongs to is also impossible.
  11. Tooth - Tyrannosaurus rex

    From the album Dinosaurs

    Species: Tyrannosaurus rex Age: Cretaceous (Maastrichtian), c. 66 million years ago Location: Hell Creek Formation, Montana, United States Quite small tooth fragment of a juvenile specimen (classically referred to Nanotyrannus, now no longer recognized as a valid genus), but serrations are preserved. Identifiable down to the genus and species level since Hell Creek did not have any tyrannosaurids other than Tyrannosaurus rex.
  12. Tooth - Tyrannosauridae indet.

    From the album Dinosaurs

    Species: Tyrannosauridae indet. Age: Cretaceous (Campanian), c. 75 million years ago Location: Two Medicine Formation, Montana, United States Pretty fragmentary tooth, but cool to have nonetheless. There are three species of tyrannosaurids present in the Two Medicine Formation (Daspletosaurus horneri, another currently unnamed species of Daspletosaurus, and Gorgosaurus libratus), so the tooth is not identifiable down to the species or genus level.
  13. Tooth - Carcharodontosaurus saharicus

    From the album Dinosaurs

    Species: Carcharodontosaurus saharicus Age: Cretaceous (Cenomanian), c. 95 million years ago Location: Kem Kem Formation, Morocco A lot of the enamel is missing, but an otherwise well-preserved tooth of Carcharodontosaurus saharicus, some would prefer labelling Kem Kem Carcharodontosaurid teeth as "Carcharodontosauridae indet." on account of Sauroniops pachytholus, but a 2020 study declared that it was likely synonymous with C. saharicus so I am comfortable with just referring to it as a tooth of Carcharodontosaurus.
  14. Hell Creek Fossil ID Help

    Hello all, it's been a very long time and I'm posting from my phone in an area with no wifi, so I hope I've followed all the rules as best I can. I was out fossil hunting in the Upper Hell Creek in eastern Montana last year, and found this bone. (Sorry for the images, I will not be able to retake them for months.) It was found in a sandy mudstone and appears to be hollow (and very crumbly). Its about 10 inches long.My best guess is a Struthiomimus femur, but if anyone knows different please let me know. Thank you for any help you can give!
  15. Kem Kem bone

    Here is another fossil I have trouble seeing how an ID was made, from Kem Kem in Morocco. This was sold to me as a bone from a Spinosaurus, but is this identifiable as coming from Spinsaurus or even a dinosaur at all? It's clearly from a quite large animal as it measures 7-8 centimetres (2.75-3.15 inches; depending on how you count) long and isn't even complete, so perhaps that is indicative of dinosaurian origin at least? Or could it possibly alternatively have come from one of the crocodylomorphs in Kem Kem? Is there anything about this that confidently places it as coming from a dinosaur? Could it's location in the skeleton be inferred or is it too fragmentary? Thanks in advance
  16. Hell Creek vertebra

    Hello! I got this dinosaur vertebra from Hell Creek (Montana) a few years back. It was sold to me as a Triceratops vertebra but I don't know how that ID was made. It's not in the best condition (has moss(?) on it and has been broken and then glued back together) but it is about 13-14 centimetres across so it is clearly from a big dinosaur, but there were plenty of those in Hell Creek (even two large ceratopsids - Triceratops and Torosaurus). Looking for any insight into how an ID could be made here and if Triceratops (or even just ceratopsid) is correct
  17. Dinosaur fossil

    This was found in the hell creek formation Carter county I believe it’s Possibly anzu wyliei metatarsal what does TFF think?
  18. A mystery vertebra

    Massive longshot with this one because I literally have no info other than it being a dinosaur vert. The seller bought a bunch of antiques and collectables and this was included listed as just "dinosaur vertebra". Some of the other fossils he has listed are clearly Moroccan--Mosasaur, Onchopristis etc, but this one definitely doesn't look Moroccan to me. SO, getting an ID is a massive longshot, but perhaps someone can recognize it and narrow it down a bit. I messaged seller for more info, but ... that's it unfortunately.
  19. Partial Opalised Dinosaur Jaw Frag???

    So i happen to come across this image, and it claims to be an opalised dinosaur jaw fragment from SA (South Australia) for me at least i do see some kind of fossil but its identification as carinal is dubious in my opion. What do yall think?
  20. Leptoceratops tooth?

    Hi, I am considering to buy this tooth for my collection. According to the seller it is a Leptoceratops from the Lance Creek formation, North-Central Niobrara County, Eastern Wyoming. As I am not very familiar with such teeth I would like to check with you guys here. Thank you very much in advance for your help.
  21. NSR Fossil Bone Identification

    Hey Everyone, Went to NSR today. Had some good luck. Nice couple of calcite covered specimens. This bone has me stumped. I believe it was larger at one time as it appears broken. One of the larger bone pieces I have found that is not a vert. Two groups of pics due to size. Any ideas?

  23. I found this fossil on on a beach in the north of france and picked it up and suddenly realised what it was. It may have been washed across the sea from the English coast. I wanted to find out if it is a dinosaur fossil and what it was if possible. Size: Length of 6cm, width of 2.5cm and height of 6cm. Thank you for any help
  24. Tooth or Rock?

    Hello All. I recently purchased an older home in North Carolina. This was found in the attic during clean up. Is it possible that it is a tooth, or just an oddly tooth shaped rock? I have no information other then what I have given. How can I tell for sure?
