  1. Hello, any thoughts on this? A Grallator, from Portland Formation, South Hadley, MA. 6 inch by 5 inch. It looks like other Grallator tracks that I've seen for sale, but it seems very distinct--more distinct than other prints I've seen for sale. Most seem to need highlighting to bring the print out, but this is very clear without any highlightingwhich makes me a bit suspicious. So, an opinion of whether it looks legit rather than a carved one would be much appreciated. Thanks
  2. Dinosaur footprint?

    Hi everyone, I took a picture of this one that resembles a dinosaur footprint from the shape. It is Upper Cretaceous.Could be? Thanks
  3. animal impression/footprint?

    Greetings- I found this rock with kids in Montgomery County, Pa., USA, along creekbed. I believe it's a type of sandstone- the Brunswick and Lockatong formations run through county (apologies-I'm just learning geology, it's red-brown). Curious if this is an animal impression? Footprints are known to be found in the area. Photographed at different angle lights, as it looks so different depending. My son showed at school as a fossil- wanted to give him an informed answer. Thanks so much!
  4. Last year when things weren’t so complicated with COVID, we managed to have hunt for dinosaur footprints on the Yorkshire coast. Here’s the beach looking across to Scarborough in the distance. Here are some examples of the prints we came across: Nothing fantastic but all theropods. Heres one in a block that was carry-able: I finally got around to cutting the block to size today although it was freezing outside. So here you go, Theropod Footprint, circa 5 inches long. Middle Jurassic Bathonian (168-166 million years) Scalby Formation Long Nab Member Yorkshire Coast Nr Scarborough Thanks for looking
  5. Started new puzzle

    I’ve got 186 pieces that all pretty much fit together. I numbered them and took photos to send to a paleontologist who is going to try to photoshop them together. I got the first two together.
  6. Footprint?

    I don’t know anything about ID’ing footprints so hopefully you guys can help me. It doesn’t look like one to me but I’m still curious. I don’t know exactly where this was found as it was given to me so unfortunately I don’t know the formation.
  7. New member fossil ID

    Hello Everyone, I am a new member on fossil forum! However, I am not new to paleontology. I am 13 and have been obsessed with fossils since before I could walk. I have two fossils I need identified, the first one is a jawbone I bought at a sale from a private collector. I recognize that it is probably not valuable, but I would like it identified. The man who sold it (he was a naturalist) identified it as a herbivorous lizard's partial mandible, anybody able to shed some light on it? The other fossil is what I presume to be a footprint cast, I have had two geologists look at it and they can't find anything to disprove the fact that it might be a very small cast of a Theropod footprint! I found it in some yard rocks (like most of my finds) and it doesn't seem to be your typical Grallator. This is either an interesting find or the pareidolia hoax of the century! If anyone can prove/disprove it, let me know. Thanks! (I'm going to reply with pictures of the jaw since they exceed 3.95)
  8. Something new and different!

    Just found this today. It will hook up with the trackway I’m putting together once i get the rock hauled out. My first Eubrontes!
  9. Took a recent collecting trip to a site that preserves stem-tetrapod, anthracosaur (reptile-like amphibian) footprints from the Mississippian subperiod. As seen in the photos, it's fairly common for these to show an overlap of front and back (manus and pes) prints. As part of the agreement for site access, I can't provide any info on geologic formation or location, but it's not the Union Chapel Mine or any other well-known Carboniferious ichnofossil site. Paleontologist Alfred Romer coined the term "Romer's gap" to describe the lack of tetrapod fossils in the earlies Carboniferous Period (roughly 360 to 345 mya). In recent years, new finds have been made that help fill in this gap, and an internet search on Romer's gap will provide a variety of papers describing interesting worldwide Late Devonian/early Mississippian tetrapod fossil finds.
  10. I came across this website with surprisingly cheap dinosaur footprints. This is one of the grallator footprint plates they are selling. It claims to be real and only darkened to make the footprints more clear. They say it is from Mt. Tom Massachusetts. They only give one picture though per item. .
  11. Skin impression

    Found a messy chirotherium footprint but has skin impression with it.
  12. Some new tracks

    Been mostly clearing out sand but did find a nice rock yesterday. Don’t know what the splayed toe print is.
  13. Permian footprint?

    It's from Coconino, Arizona But i'm not sure it is footprint or just pressure Thank you for your help
  14. Small theropod footprint?

    I found this rock in some landscaping rocks in Arapahoe country Colorado. I know it will be tough. I hope the photos will be enough to get a confirmation that it’s a real footprint and maybe get an I.D There is also a lot of plant material across the whole thing which I hope is proof that it’s fossilized top view with light from the front to outline the detail of the footprint top view back view left view front view right view bottom view Close up of the largest plant piece. I don’t know If the 6 side photos matter with a rock like this but I want to be as accurate as possible.
  15. This one is kind of artsy

    The footprint in the lower right is chirotherium. The straight line looks to be a tail drag. The squiggly lines are mud cracks I assume.
  16. Strange footprint

    Spent most of the day dragging out garbage rocks but found this one. Can’t tell if it’s a smeared Chirotherium or some thing else. All you Lady Gaga Little Monsters, paws up!
  17. I found a mark of suspected skin in the deepest part of the large footprint of a suspected dinosaur? I found very little data on the toe skin marks on the Internet. Some people know what the skin texture is on the toes of large theropod dinosaurs?
  18. Recovered footprints

    So I got the footprints out of the wash before the monsoon arrives. Still haven’t figured out what the little prints are from. Anyone have info? Lots of nice chirotherium prints.
  19. Bird or Dinosaur footprint?

    Hi just wondering is this a Bird or dinosaur footprint? Found in unknown Formation. Thank you for any help!
  20. Hey guys, I saw this listed as a ornithopod footprint. Do you guys think it’s real? Also what dinosaur could it be? Thanks!
  21. Hi i’m Wondering if this this would be the shape of some sort of dinosaur footprint?
  22. Foot cast?

    Labelled as possible polacanthus or young iguanodon but doesnt resemble the polacanthus cast I have. Described as "misshapen." Not the best photos, I know. Thanks
  23. I have my eye on them, but I thought I'd check first. First is labelled as a small carnivore Gralkator/Coelophysis from Scotland late Triassic to Early Jurassic. Matrix is 220mm x 77mm The 2nd pair is again small carnivore but from Hampton County USA, early Jurassic. Thanks
  24. Theropod footprint?

    Found this fossil in my grandads old collection, so unfortunately I have no info on where it’s from. Any help with ID would be much appreciated! I thought maybe it was grallator or a Devonian fish? Some more images in the comments
  25. Nova Scotia and New Jersey ichnofossils

    Here is the "dinosaur" footprints from New Jersey
