  1. Found in South Manatee County in an aggregate pit. Thank you!
  2. Looking for identification for this bone. Possible femur or humerus of a turtle? Found in Manatee County, Florida. Thank you!
  3. What is this?

    This is part of a private collection that I have salvaged from an estate sale in Washington. Wondering what I have here. Thanks!
  4. Long Bone ID

    Looking for some help with the ID. Mineralized, large and heavy, about 10 lbs. from the white River formation in SD. Distal end of a femur perhaps? Thanks for any help with the ID.
  5. Is this even a fossil?

    I found this “rock” on the beach in Key West, Florida a number of years ago when I stepped on the bulbous part. The shape interested me so I kept it. Recently while watching a documentary about fossils it occurred to me that this looks strangely like part of a fossilized femur. I was wondering if anyone can identify this and confirm or deny my suspicion. Also, if it is a fossil, approximately how old might it be?
  6. Pachystropheus rhaeticus

    Hi Here's a small femur from the Triassic reptile Pachstropheus rhaeticus. The femur is about 2 inches long and sits amongst some Triassic debris including fish teeth. Nick
  7. Femoral head?

    Hey all. I'm new to the site. I happened upon what I can only assume is a femoral head of some sort. Any ideas?
  8. Large femur- bison or hippo?

    Dear Guys, Today I found the lower articular piece of big femur, the length of articular end surface is 13 cm. It is very similar to bison but judging by size I think it could belong to hippopotamus. I also checked wooly rhino but there are some differences in the articular surface. Any idea what it might be? Best Regards Domas
  9. mammal femur

    I've browsed the gallery of @Harry Pristis without success. This femur measures 9 inches long. The proximal end is about 2.25 inches along the longest line and the distal is at 2.5 inches. Found on the Brazos River in Texas. My guess is deer. Thanks for looking!
  10. Femur bone from Kem Kem

    Hi, I saw this unidentified femur from the Kem Kem beds and i was just wondering if it possible to id it or narrow it down to potential candidates. The femur is 1.42" long. Thanks.
  11. Hi everybody! I just a question. Does anybody actually purchase dinosaur bones ? I took this bone to UWL and they confirmed and I have emails and photos verifying that it is a Mastadon femur bone. They think they it wasn't full grown yet when it died. It's pretty cool actually and they can't believe how good of condition it is in.
  12. kinda big bone

    I almost tripped over this log today while out on the Brazos River. So my question is...Is there a way to differentiate mammoth femur from mastodon femur. I can post more pics after I clean it up a bit. Right now all I know is that it weighs 52lbs, 17 inches wide and 30 inches long. It was fun carrying up the bank and back to my car. And wondering if I would dive in after it if I swamped the kayak on the trip back.....
  13. Femur?

    Hi Fossil Forum - I found this object which I think is a bone near the State Line campground in the Vermillion Cliffs area of Arizona/Utah. It measures approximately 3" in radius. Is it a bone?
  14. Leg bone

    Same Creek. We have a large pelvis too.
  15. Sorry to do this on my first post, but..... This looks like a Hadrosaur thigh / femur fossil with flesh and skin!!! Call me a liar! more pics....
  16. Hi there! I'm new to the forum and have identification questions on some material I pulled out Hell Creek. Where should I post pictures and questions like that on the site? We pulled out what is tentatively a femur, skin fossil, and a meat-eater claw (that one's in pretty rough shape). Also a mystery bone that almost looks like a piece of skull, with two partial eye sockets. This community looks amazing; I'm looking forward to participating in it! Warbreaker
  17. Up for sale on everyone's favorite auction website is the following while it doesn't look fake I am very cautious about buying anything from the site when it comes to fossil remains. I'm guessing the usual suspects troodon and lordtrilobite can help me
  18. Bison or cow? What do you think?

    Does this look like cow or bison? Thanks.
  19. Am I looking at Cow or Bison here?

    Would love to know if I've got cow or Bison artifacts here...
  20. Hell Creek - Femur head??

    Also in the Hell Creek Formation in Montana, we found this interesting bone. It was in two large pieces, and then I later attached two smaller pieces to it. I had shown it to another paleontologist (before it was cleaned and glued together), and he suggested maybe mandible end, or another condyle. To me, it has a femur like quality..... Any suggestions as to what this is, and what it might be from? I'm leaning towards triceratops, based on odds.....
  21. revisonary tactics

    edit: mind you,this one is fairly recent streetcaldhoffmannii_squammosrevisi!us.pdf
  22. White River Femur

    Hello FF This is a a recent find from private land near Lusk Wyoming. Lots of Oreodonts and turtles in the area. I think it is a distal femor. I think. The shaft feels too thin for the heft of the epiphyseal end. A condyle is broken off on one side. The patellar groove(if I am right about it being a femur) seems so much on the end of bone rather than rolling around from the cranial aspect like I expect with mammals. Thoughts
  23. Fossil or... ? Found in Colorado Springs

    Hello! I found an interesting formation out in the middle of no where Colorado Springs where late Cretaceous fossils have been found. Any advice or help would be great at what it is. One paleontologist said tail or femur, another said tree. Help! -John
  24. Possible cave bear, piece of femur

    Dear Guys, I have recently found one piece of femur which is very similar to cave bear because of its size. The length of piece is 15,5 cm and the width in joint part is 7,5 cm. Any idea what is this? Best regards Domas
  25. Possible cheetah femur found

    Dear Guys, I recently found one near complete femur which is thin and long. The very similar femur appearance is in cheetah. I found it in Varena town, Lithuania. The length of it is 16 cm. Any idea what is this? Best Regards Domas
