  1. Possible footprint?

    I’m gonna need some help on this one... I’m not even sure whether it’s a fossil or just geological. Found at Sugar Creek in Crawfordsville, Indiana
  2. Is this a footprint?

    Found this at Rocken End, St Catherine's point, Isle of Wight, think it comes from the greensand formation but I'd be surprised if this is a footprint since this is a marine deposit pictures attached below
  3. This is a “is it real” thread and also looking for an ID. Although I suspect that the ID part will be impossible. Maybe someone may recognise the presevation/colour and be able to have a guess at a location. I picked this footprint up at auction. The location/any information on it has been lost unfortunately. The pictures don't really do it justice it looks fantastic and 3-D to the eye. The specimen doesn't seem to have any coating on and has someones collection number in it. So i’m guessing it’s the real deal?
  4. This is said to be a dinosaur footprint from Ganzhou, China. It measures 50cm in length. It is convex (rather than being a concave depression). Do you think it is really a footprint?
  5. Permian footprint fossil

    permian footprint fossil anyone know speices and location?
  6. Made an incredible discovery at home tonight when I noticed tiny baby dinosaur tracks about only 5.1mm long on a ripple slab I had found. I've never seen baby footprints so small before, so I'm amazed. No wonder I didn't notice them for nearly two weeks after I had found them this month! Since there seems to be a partial adult on the edge it makes me wonder if this dinosaur was walking with its new born baby.
  7. Dilophosaurus ??? footprint

    From the album Dinosaurs & flying reptiles

    Eubrontes: Dilophosaurus ? Raised relief (footprint coated to stand out). 200 mya Triassic Erving, Massachusetts . Connecticut River valley. Clay sandstone **Sadly, something smudged the tip of the middle toe while still wet, and ruined the beautiful claw mark. Heel to middle claw tip = 10", & from tip of right claw to top of left claw = 8". The 2 main types you commonly see are Eubrontes and Grallator, but Eubrontes is different, as it is apparently understood to be pretty much dilophosaurus footprints. (Citation???) I know there are probably sometimes others' footprints that will fall under the name, but it seems to be to the point of Eubrontes almost being synonymous with dilophosaurus. (Citation???) I KNOW I'm going to take flak for labeling this as just "dilophosaur", and I understand why, but all in all, in this case I feel completely comfortable and safe using the name without a qualifier. I'm very sorry to all who are bothered and annoyed by it
  8. Dinosaur Footprint

    Discovered this footprint in West Texas. Can anyone help me identify the footprintee? Thanks in advance for the help.
  9. I finally found the dinosaur footprint at Saltwick bay, Yorkshire. I took a picture yesterday because i think you guys will enjoy it also Hammer for scale. It looked alot better in 2010. I wonder how many more years it will be identifiable as a footprint before it is completly eroded away It's most likely from a Stegosaurus.
  10. Dinosaur Footprints?

    Good evening to all! Dinosaur Footprints? In Argentina, my daughter discovered some lages of rocks in the middle of the bush, somewhere ... I did not go there. My daughter just sent me these pictures. From my experience, they are natural deformities of the rock, but anyway, I have decided to post here to ascertain what your opinion is. I thank you for all your help. Thank you! @Fossildude19
  11. Possible dinosaur footprint?

    Hi all, I found this one seven years ago along the western shore of Georgian Bay, Ontario. It looked to me like the footprint of a very small theropod of some sort, but it might just be a misleadingly shaped rock. Any help would be appreciated!
  12. Jurassic Footprint?

    Hello fellow fossil fans, This a very large piece from Durlston Bay, just past Peveril Point west of Swanage on Dorsets Jurassic coast. The location is better known for shell beds small fragments of reptile and fish particularly teeth. Sorry that I don't have a ruler on me for scale, the spoon is a tea spoon and the whole specimen is just over a foot across. Is it a footprint or have I manhandled a very heavy psudofossil a long way for nothing? All coments welcome, its not the greatest of pictures so if more is required let me know.
  13. Hi Guys, I'm wondering if these 2 Grallator variabilis (footprints) look real. They are from Aveyron, France and supposed to date from the Lower Jurassic, Hettangian. Measurements: plate 1: 29 x 27 cm, plate 2: 28 x 24 cm. The inprint has a size of approx. 13 cm. Weight: 4.9 kg
  14. Possible Batrachopus Track

    From the album FreeRuin's Finds

    A better, non-chalk image of a previous post. I think it might be a possible Batrachopus footprint (missing a toe, the rock is broken on the left side). Hartford Basin Portland Formation Western Massachusetts
  15. Possible Batrachopus Track

    From the album FreeRuin's Finds

    It looks the part of a Batrachopus footprint (missing a toe) with the proper size and location but I cannot say for sure. Hartford Basin Portland Formation Western Massachusetts
  16. Small Footprint

    From the album FreeRuin's Finds

    Either a small footprint or a partial one I believe it to be a Grallator due to its shape and size. Picked it up while hiking. Hartford Basin Portland Formation Massachusetts
  17. The Green River Formation is one of the most well-known fossil sites in the world, occupying present-day Colorado, Utah and Wyoming. This Lagerstätte has been noted for its well-preserved fish fossils, as well as numerous invertebrates, plants, and sometimes even reptiles and birds. Green River fossils are Eocene-aged, at 53.5 to 48.5 million years old. Thankfully, not only are Green River fossils attractive, they also remain affordable to the casual collector. Allow me to present my humble collection. Crocodile tooth Borealosuchus sp. Southwest Wyoming Water bird tracks (possibly sandpipers or plovers) Presbyorniformipes feduccii Vernal, Utah Bird feather Aves indet. Southwest Wyoming Crane flies & Mosquitoes Pronophlebia rediviva & Culex sp. Parachute Creek Member; Douglas Pass, Colorado
  18. I purchased this from a seller months ago and wanted some insight. The seller bought this from another person who found the fossil itself. However, the seller says that 1, or 2 of the grallator tracks may be exaggerated or not tracks. It seems to me that the Eubrontes track is indeed authentic but I wanted to know what you guys think? These days people scam all over the Internet, but I have faith that the seller was truthful. Thanks in advance for feedback.
  19. Dinosaur Footprint Cast?

    Hello, I found this last year during a fossil hunting trip in the Bendricks, South-Wales. I know their are several track ways and some 200+ footprints embedded within the rock around the local areas, however I have not seen a footprint cast from this locality either (that I know of). I have tried finding a contact for the geology department at the national museum based in Cardiff, though it has been unsucessful. Any light you can shed on this would be much appreciated! It may be just a conveniently shaped rock, however it is always worth asking. Apologies for the picture, I've had to rely on someone else for the picture - it is slightly larger than than palm size. Local rocks are Triassic - approx 220 million years
  20. What made this footprint?

    Hi! My friend went to a museum and sent me a picture of this fossilized footprint. He said that they don't know what it is from. Does anyone have an idea?
  21. Hey yall Im looking for untouched fossils to practice prepping. Dont really care what it is. To trade I have casts of a Acrocanthrosaurus footprint. I made these from a trackway were I live. They can be seen here Please email me info at glenn@drivetanks.com
  22. Hello, this is a part 2 of my last thread with some of my other finds that I've found this at a site in new jersey where some footprints have been found from the Late Triassic/Early Jurassic, I am unsure about if these are footprints of sorts, any help will be appreciated thank you!
  23. Hello, I've found this at a site in new jersey where some footprints have been found from the Late Triassic/Early Jurassic, I am unsure about if this is a footprint of sorts, any help will be appreciated thank you!
  24. Saw this on a well known auction site, described as a dinosaur footprint from Scotland. Is it such a thing? I can't see anything that looks remotely like a footprint, I'd have dismissed it as geological, but this isn't my area of interest. Any thoughts?
  25. My name is Samnang Nuon and I am a student at a school in Cambodia called the Liger Leadership Academy. LINK My school, the Liger Leadership academy is a unique project based experiential school for Cambodian secondary students selected from throughout the country. We learn subjects areas contents by conducting real research or projects and learning about Cambodia by going out to explore and doing things around the country. Several months ago we did a project about the geology of Cambodia. There is little written about, known or understood by the general public about this topic. So, we invited a recent graduating geology major from the University of Minnesota to come and lead the project. It was great and she taught our students about field research, etc. They did three one week trips throughout the country to document the information and learn see the real deal. They created the following bi-lingual Facebook page to begin helping people here know about geology. Geology of Cambodia Facebook Geology is not a popular major here in Cambodia. Therefore, there is no geology program, major, etc. in any university in this country. However, there is a Ministry of Mines and Energy here and the students of our school went to interview them about geology in Cambodia. They met with the Minister for the whole ministry and one thing he told them is that they, just this past year, discovered dinosaur tracks in rural region at Battambang northern Cambodia. Along with the location of the site, he recently emailed me this: " During the last survey to the site, our staff and paleontologist of the Department of Mineral Resources of Thailand found trackways of both bipedal and quadrupedal dinosaur. As I know, the site is within a private property and land is reworked, but you might find footprint in surrounding area. I also planned to talk with Battambang department of Mines and Energy and Battambang provincial authority on possible way to protect the remaining area for conservation. I hope we can cooperate in keeping the site safe. Yours sincerely, SIENG Sotham Deputy Director General General Department of Mineral Resources" Unfortunately, the ministry does not have budget, time, staff, etc. to realistically pursue this. I am very interested in having a group of my high school friends learn from this possibility. First, learn what to do scientifically with a site. Additionally, write about it. To my knowledge, there has never been evidence of dinosaurs in this country (I think for many reasons) and I would like my team to write articles, research papers, create documentation for media to get young people throughout the country here interested. There is no university here to take on such a project. But, it would be perfect for us. The students at my school, in the past few years have written two books that have been sent by the Ministry of Education to all the government schools in the country as a part of their curriculum. Remarkably, I know we are up for a rigorous, scientific challenge. But, what I don't know what it is I’m unsure if the footprint is real. I know very little information about dinosaurs. My learning coordinator, Jeff Holte of the school has spent the last two weekends traveling to the site to take some photos and have done some casts of the tracks. I would be very interested in you looking at the photos I have attached to tell me if these are probably a real dinosaur tracks. The site is about 40 km from Battambang towards the Thai border. To make it interesting, there are snakes and still land mines (from Khmer Rouge regime) in the area. The coordinates are found where they have been filling in a piece of land to build on at some point. They obviously moved big pieces of sandstone to the sides of the land and that is where I found some things in the photos attached. The site is mostly covered over but there are some boulders and small outcroppings on the sides. Any thoughts or advice would be greatly appreciated. Let me know what you think. Contact me if you got any idea: samnang.n@ligercambodia.org s.nounsinoeun@ligerlearning.org Thanks in advanced, Samnang
