  1. Modern bone. Cow? Horse? Other?

    Well, this is modern, I don’t even have to do a burn test. Sorry if this is the wrong place to post, but I was hoping someone could help with an ID. I came across it when I was out on a hike through Little Death Hollow in southern Utah awhile back. I don’t have any other photos of it, which will probably make the ID more difficult. I’m thinking cow humerus, or maybe horse. Thoughts?
  2. Yet More Horse of Course?

    Horse humerus?
  3. Alcione - Pterosaur humerus?

    Quite interested in this pterosaur humerus. It is described as Alcione -- From Morocco. The piece measures 16cm x 10cm The shape does seem to match another I saw posted here, but a more knowledgable view would be great. Many thanks
  4. Bovid Humerus

    From the album Some Minnesota ~Fossils

  5. Proboscidean humerus

    I dug up this distal (I think) humerus today on the Brazos River. I wasn’t sure what I had when I first started digging. By the second picture I knew it was something special. Is there any way to differentiate between mammoth and mastodon humerus? @Harry Pristis @Uncle Siphuncle @fossilus I’m happy to provide additional pics if needed.
  6. Kem Kem femur?

    Here's a 45 cm / 17.7 inch long bone from the Kem Kem of Morocco. I don't know what animal this belonged to. Maybe a theropod or crocodilian?
  7. Agadez region fossils of Niger

    Hello all, I have some fossils that I highly suspect came from the Agadez region of Niger. I am trying to ID them. I am new to the forum and any help would be greatly appreciated. I have 4 bones in total. I have taken pictures of all six sides. I am trying to figure out how to post the pictures. It will only allow me to do 3.9 m which is one picture approximately.

  9. Juvenile deer humerus?

    Good morning another good day in The Brook. My best find which I was able to identify was an iPhone 11 which I reunited with it’s owner. Photos below are of a humerus. Most of what I find is deer but this one is substantially smaller. Is it a juvenile deer or something else? As always, thank you for sharing your expertise
  10. Dolphin Humerus

    Found August 1st in Calvert Cliffs State Park in Maryland. Found digging around in deposits about 4 feet into the water. Area is known for Miocene fossils... Sharks teeth, vertebrae, whale bone, etc. It is definitely stone not some kind of metal.
  11. Unknown joint end of bone Fossil ID

    Hello, I found this joint end of a bone in a spoil pile. It has nice brown color and it is NOT dense. Underside shows fibrous area. I have found Equus and whale bone, and deer antler in this area as well as Meg teeth. I read Hulbert's book and my speculation was a ankle bone of some type or phalange. I can see where it might be from a piece of humerus. fossil is 3 cm high and 4 cm wide. Assistance appreciated. - Michael
  12. Jaw ID

    Hello. Cow, Bison, Camel, Thoughts?
  13. Iguanodon Humerus

    Iguanodon Humerus from the South Coast of England From this: To this: The humerus is about 16 inches long and is broken on the one end. Prep by me, stand by Friargate Forge.
  14. Mammoth Repair

    I picked up this mammoth humerus from the Brown County Museum of History a couple weeks ago and have begun the repair. Apparently, someone tried to move it and it must have gotten dropped. I don't have the story on the damage, only the request for repair. Nobody's admittin' nuthin'! It came to me in 3 boxes (never a good thing for a single bone). This bone has an unknown provinance but has been at the museum for decades. Judging by the state of the plaster restoration, I would say this was done sometime in the 1960' or 70's. I soaked the exposed bone in stabilizer and applied a liberal mount of clear, non-expanding, Gorilla Glue to the joints and strapped the whole thing together for a couple of days. My lab is still covered in Green river fish so, while the wife was away from the house, the bone got moved to the dining room table. to her credit, she didn't say a word about it when she got home! I think she's been around me long enough to expect random dead things showing up in her house. This was when I discovered that I am completely out of white Apoxie Sculpt for the crack filling. Thankfully, I have to paint the repairs anyway so, they will get dark brown epoxy. I don't have a picture of the epoxied cracks yet but they are done and I've used about a gallon of cyannoacrylate on the plaster because upon closer inspection, the whole thing was covered in hairline cracks and just waiting to fall apart. I don't want to do a full restoration on this thing so I made the decision to save what is there.
  15. Hadrosaur Humerus Repair/Prep

    I recently got this lovely mess of bone, which is a mostly complete hadrosaur right humerus that only requires some assembling. I actually bought this with the idea that it might be a fun project. But then it broke even more in the shipping. So I have my work cut out for me. It's from Judith River formation, Montana. It's hard to tell at the moment, but it seems to be a rather slender humerus. So that would make it more likely to be from the saurolophinae subfamily. But I will look into that some more when I have it assembled. So I will be doing lots of reassembling on this piece as well as prepping away some excess matrix that's still present. Besides the obvious problems, the bone itself is actually in very nice condition with some really smooth cortical bone as well as some lovely visible muscle scars. This is how it looked when I first opened it. Quite a mess. Also a drawing of what it should look like in context. And here I have slightly ordered the pieces. There's 5 big main pieces, three medium pieces and a whole bunch of tiny chunks. One of the bigger pieces that includes the ulnar and radial condyles. The shaft of the bone has had a pretty bad recent fracture. This is also where most of the smaller pieces come from.
  16. pterosaur bones (perhaps Dorygnathus)

    From the album Holzmaden

    This is probably one of my best find so far from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden. Its a plate with some pterosaur bones, which is very rare in Holzmaden as these are marine desposits. The bigger bone might be a Humerus. Before I was able to find this piece I only found a few isolated pterosaur bones. Hopefully I can find a complete one one day The prep of this specimen took about 5 hours. Before the prep it was visible that these are pterosaur bones so I was very surprised ... Some more pictures:
  17. Hello all. I just wanted to share some information about keichousaurus that I found very interesting. Crazyhen recently identified a keich specimen I have as a male. I wondered how he knew that, and did some research. As most of you probably already know, keichousaurus hui was sexually dimorphic! Males can be told apart from females by the proportions and length of the femur and humerus. Males are also often times larger. I included a diagram telling apart the male from the female. A is the female, and B is the male. Thank you all for reading, I enjoyed learning this and hope some of you do as well! https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.1671/039.029.0230 https://royalsocietypublishing.org/doi/full/10.1098/rspb.2015.1658
  18. Florida humerus

    I found this today. Not sure exactly what it is from. It is 6" in length.
  19. I hope you all had a good Christmas and are looking forward to the New Year. I thought I’d treat myself to a Christmas fossil this year. It’s an iguanodon humerus (maybe Mantellisaurus now) from the Isle of Wight. The humerus is about 700 mm long, so pretty big and heavy. I got a local blacksmith to make the stand for me and I picked it up today. Regards Nick

  21. Found in South Manatee County in an aggregate pit. Thank you!
  22. Looking for identification for this bone. Possible femur or humerus of a turtle? Found in Manatee County, Florida. Thank you!
  23. Small rodent humerus ? Savannah, Georgia

    Hello, I have what I think is a small humerus from a rodent of some kind ? This is dredge material so it can range from Pliocene to Pleistocene. Was curious if it was possible to determine the type of rodent. I'm assuming it's too small for a capybara type of animal. @MarcoSr does this resemble anything you have seen ? Cheers, Brett
