  1. Footprint maybe?

    Found this not far from the other footprints. This is sandstone. I can’t really tell for sure.
  2. Hello everyone! Being the type of person I am with I won the following items at an online auction. These include the following (hopefully real) items: - Two Mososaur jaws, one with significant restoration - A fossil grasshopper - Ampibian footprints If possible, please help me understand whether any of these are real or if elements of them are. Further images will be provided in replies to this topic. Let me know if you require new pictures to get a better judgement. Thanks in advance for any help! All items Mososaur jaw #1 - front view. Claimed to be a lower jaw section of Mosasaur Prognathodon from Khouribga, Morocco. 19cm (7 1/2"). Mososaur jaw #1 - back view. Significant work done to restore the jaw or combine multiple pieces.Mososaur jaw #1 - top view Close-up flash shot of tooth (?) coming through
  3. Dinosaur tracks in Dallas, Texas?

    Howdy, all. Apologies for the lack of specificity; I'm an amateur fossil hunter and am not familiar with all the terms just yet. I was recently looking for inoceramus clams in the bed of White Rock Creek when I noticed some strange depressions in the limestone. They were roundish (some with a hint of a triangular shape), around two feet in diameter, and spaced in a pretty even pattern along the creekbed. The more I thought about it, the more they seemed to resemble the tracks found at the bottom of the river at Dinosaur Valley State Park in Glen Rose. My questions are: Is anyone aware of dinosaur tracks along this creek? This wasn't at all a remote area, so it's hard to imagine that people just overlooked a bunch of dino footprints. You never know, though. If not, would this be worth bringing up to (for example) a research professor at a university? I have no point of reference for how common tracks are. I haven't taken any photos, but could do so. Thanks, all
  4. LOCATION Turon River, Hillend, NSW, Australia GEOLOGY I don't know how to find this, the rock has quartz in it, I would appreciate a link or further reading if you have any. FORMATION Grey with shiny quartz particles ASSEMBLAGE No other fossils observed at this site, it was found next to a fresh water river that had recently had a flush of water through it. It may have washed down from another site. DISCOVERY It was loose beside the river beside a rock I was sitting on, I looked down and saw this rock and thought "that looks interesting" CHARACTERISTICS I think it is a trace fossil of seeds and footprints. The "seeds" are the same shape with a slit in the middle of the shapes. The seed shapes are smooth on the surface beside the splits. They measure 8 mm x 12 mm. There are also shapes that look like trace footprints with three toes. These are all a similar size of about 8 mm to the middle "toe" and 8 mm wide. What confuses me is they are all over the rock top and bottom and sides. The whole rock is 23 cm x 14 cm and is 6 cm thick. The pics show Side A Side B Close up Close up
  5. An article describes some rare finds of non-pterodactyloid pterosaur footprints. It was thought that earlier Pterosaurs (long tailed Pterosaurs) were poor walkers since footprints of these early Pterosaurs were rarely found compared to some later Pterosaur. However these new discoveries have shown that the earlier Pterosaurs were quadruple and had five toes on their hind feet (compared to four for the later Pterosaurs), and the researchers believe that this is evidence that they were also good walkers and not clumsy on the ground. https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/footprint-find-could-be-a-holy-grail-of-pterosaur-research/
  6. Footprints and tail drag

    Turned this approx 4 sq. ft. rock over today. Lots of footprints and a nice tail drag.
  7. Nova Scotia ichnofossils

    Another Nova Scotia footprint ("turtle")
  8. Nova Scotia ichnofossils

    Back in 1989 I stopped at a rock shop outside of Parrsboro NS along the Bay of Fundy and bought a couple of fossils. Unfortunately I didn't much information with them and I'm hoping you guys might be helpful in some IDs. One was labeled as "Dinosaur" footprint Batrachopus sp. Jurassic Period 180 million years old from New Jersey. Can anyone verify this one. Also, there are two other ichno foot prints from the Parrsborro area, one of which I was told was an amphibian footprint and the other a set of turtle footprints. The gentleman did fossil in areas along the Bay of Fundy. If anyone can verify this information and possible identify the footprints and the geologic formation, that would be great.
  9. Hello all, Here are a few images of some tetrapod footprints my good friend and I collected over the past several years. These fossils were accessioned into the New Brunswick Museum geology/paleontology collection and are currently under study. It is illegal to collect fossils in New Brunswick, however the Museum was very happy that we brought the footprints to their attention and were keen on including us in all the research. We have been working with Matt Stimson, a local (and very knowledgeable) paleontologist, and Olivia King, and have since found MANY more tracks. We are actively writing these specimens up and should have a few publications coming out in upcoming years. There will be much, much more from this site so stay tuned. FossilsNS

  11. Look Under The Footprints

    New radar method looks under"ghost" footprints to gain more behavioral information. https://phys.org/news/2019-11-ghost-footprints-pleistocene-era-revealed.html
  12. Hello everyone, I have been spending a lot of time searching for Carboniferous fossils near my cottage in Nova Scotia. Here are a few photos from my summer "expeditions" in which I found many ichnofossils. However, this post will just be focusing on the tetrapod trackways . I would like to state that the collection of fossils in Nova Scotia is illegal, and all the fossils I found were brought to the attention of the Nova Scotia Museum of Natural History. Hope you enjoy and stay tuned for more! Note: All of these footprints have been preliminary identified as Limnopus, but I would still like to hear your opinions.
  13. Sun was in abad position unfortunately but I’m curious if you think these are just random marks or something else? The top picture marks are about 8” total. The bottom two with the sets of four are about six inches square per set, on a huge boulder. As always, value your input!
  14. New footprints from today

    Just found these today. Two different slabs about 4 feet long. Some closeups of one of them.

  17. Dinosaur footprints

    Found these in East Central Arizona. A deep wash has cut through a rock ledge containing lots of the footprints. Still working on trying to get some of the bigger rock slabs hauled out.

  21. Triassic Shale - Emmitsburg MD

    1st shot at separating red shale in Emmitsburg. I would be grateful if anyone can tell me what, if anything, maybe seen. I see many things and yet nothing. I apologize for poor quality. It is best I can get under 3.95MB. Thank you.
  22. Who's Permian feet made these?

    If anyone is familiar with Permian tracks, can anyone ID these? All I can tell is that they appear to be synapsid tracks, but not Dimetrodon. I'm assuming that means Edaphosaurus is out too, but that's all I can figure. the ONLY details still known are that they're Permian tracks from somewhere in Arizona. There's no more information available. There's 4 plates... 1-pic 1 2-pics 2,3,4 3-pics 5 4-pics 6,7
  23. Fossil Tracks?

    Not sure if these are fossil tracks or not. There is more than one and they are all similar. Maybe some kind of sea creature digging? They were steps to a creek so I can’t place a certain age to them. The age around here is Late Cretaceous so sometime around that time is most likely. Denton, Texas, USA.
