  1. Help ID please

    Found on a river bed in Sussex, south coast of England. No idea what it is. Any ideas ? Thanks
  2. Fox or Jackal lower jaw?

    Hello everyone! As some of you know, i did post last time some of my archeological finds, which i've found in my own garden (yeah,it's impossible to believe). Here was 50 years ago archeological site near by so that's a good proof.I found a lower jaw, not sure if it's fox or a jackal , i found in few books quite big similarity between them.Any help? Thanks
  3. Large crinoid part?

    I found this within 1 minute at a new spot in Fenton, Missouri that I heard about on the Missouri fossil page on Facebook. I had to glue a part back on and I've started cleaning it up. I think it's part of a large crinoid either the holdfast or less likely the head that's upside down. What do you guys think?
  4. Possible fossil found on walk

    I found this in Niagara Ontario, in Upper Ordovician/Lower Silurian rock. The rock is mainly crinoid limestone. I'm not sure if it's a fossil. I wish I had a measurement, but I found it by accident, and didn't have a ruler.
  5. NJ Brook Identification

    Recently made a trip to Ramanessin Brook and Big Brook. I was able to confidently identify most of my finds, except for these few. Here is what I think they are. Please let me know what you all think. Thank you! #1- coprolite #2- coprolite #3- petrified wood #4- petrified wood #5- bone fragment - is there any way to know where it came from? #1 #2 #3 #4 #5
  6. Era and could it be mammal or reptile

    Good morning everyone. I know it's impossible to put a precise id on this sample, but I'm cataloging my collection and wasn't sure how to make it's ID tag. So I know it's a dinosaur bone and as a UK Registered Veterinary Nurse, I know it a bone end at a joint. It was given in 2016 by my fossil club I'm a member off, Eastern society of Paleontology, Mo. Some may know the great paleontologist Dr Bruce Stinchcombe, Dr Mike Fick and Mr Rick Poropat who are also members. Thank you for any idea of the animal it came from. as rough guess, I was thinking some sort of small mammal or reptlie like the Champsosaurus so.
  7. Russian tyrannosaur tooth , Kileskus?

    Hi! I´m not very familiar with Russian dinosaur teeth, But I saw this tooth for sale and its labeled as Kileskus from Itat formation Russia. Is it possible that it is the correct id or could it be something else? The photos isnt very good though
  8. What could these be?

    Hello! I found these two (nearly) identical pieces in an area west of Albuquerque, New Mexico, that would have been the eastern shoreline of the Laramidia continent during the cretaceous. I checked on a geologic map, and the exposed area is all cretaceous sediments. These samples are very hard, despite their seemingly brittle shape, and do not break or disintegrate even when I apply a lot of force to them. They have no other remarkable markings other than their very unusual shape. Do you have any ideas what they could be? Thank you!
  9. Hi there, a couple of years ago I got this piece as a present. Unfortunately it came without any information about its exact origination (only Morocco) or what it is. After thifting through some books I thought that it might be some kind of palatal plate. Has somebody an idea on this fossil?
  10. Good Websites to ID Fossils.

    I was wondering if theirs any good websites to identify a wide range of things (shark teeth, bones, cephalopod, fish, ray teeth, coral, etc). individual website will be helpful to but preferably one with a lot of fossil ID.
  11. Dinosaur Tooth ID

    hello, many of you will have seen recent posts about this tooth. Alarmingly rather than help me to improve my services to you the great fossil community by helping me to rectifying my mistakes by supplying me with a more professional opinion of what this tooth might be sadly it was seen to be more of an exercise in ridicule at my expense. Therefore here is a chance for those peoples to redeem themselves with an apology by helping to correctly identify this tooth! Background... This tooth was bought as part of a private collection at the recent Tucson show. Sadly alot of the dinosaur material that I purchased had no to little identification apart from the formation with which it came and/or some vague location details. When I bought the collection I was privileged that @troodon was there to look over some of my purchases for me which I am very grateful for. This tooth was in this collection however the label that accompanied called it an Chirostenotes tooth from the two medicine, Teton county (with I presume is in Wyoming state). This was all the information I have. Hence why I stupidly did not question the validity of the identification and do more home work on the tooth before posting for sale.. my bad. However I recognised the tooth as being rather different to all the other teeth I had seen from my travels from the two medicine formation. Assessment so far... It clearly (now that I know) not a chirostenotes tooth nor an oviraptor tooth. (would have been pretty rare if so right! haha) to me it does not look tyrannosaurid. to me it is HUGE (measuring 2 cm long) for the usual raptorial teeth you see from this location. but clearly it is a theropod tooth. For me there is nothing to let me not think that it is from the two medicine formation. the collection came from a very reputable source and I was told that many of the teeth were found by the original owner. Conclusion... SO WHAT IS IT? Thank you for your time in looking at this post and for maturely assessing this tooth for me. Dealers can only improve their services if their knowledge base expands and their knowledge base improves to do this they need guidance from time to time. best wishes and look forward to your debate. fossils-uk
  12. Stumped on this one

    This was found around the bottom of the Eagle Ford or the top of the Woodbine in Texas. It is heavy enough to be fossilized, weighs about 11g. No response to a magnet. It is about 1cm x 1.5cm x 2.5cm. I’m not sure what it is, if anything.
  13. Florida Miocene Inverts

    Here are a couple of inverts that I found at a dry land site last year, put them in a cigar box and then forgot about them. I ran across them again while digging through my boxes. I managed to ID a couple of them (not shown), but a few eluded my ID attempts - I am not very good with inverts (many are similar). Does anyone know what these are? Any help would be greatly appreciated. The big one is 5 inches across and appears to be a cast. Another is some kind of scallop (I think) and the last photo is barnacles of some kind. These were all found in a spot that was rich in Miocene inverts.
  14. ID please

    Could someone please ID these two jaw pieces? The first piece is described as reptile and from the hell creek formation and measures 2.5inches and the second is from the Kem Kem basin.
  15. Looks a bit like a finger

    First time I've found one of these. From Norway close to a place with a lot of trilobites, if that helps. There may be more of the fossil hidden in the rock, but I'm a bit scared about hammering around it. Any idea what it might be?
  16. Hello together, I am new to this forum and am starting to build my collection of dinosaur teeth. Because I want to do it properly, I am cataloguing the teeth I already own (unfortunately there aren't many yet). While taking pictures for my database I stumbled upon one tooth I bought two years ago on a fossil fair here in Germany. According to the seller it is supposed to be a Carcharodontosaurus sp. from the Kem Kem formation in Morocco. Bit it looks completely different from my second Carcharodontosaurus sp. I bought last year (picture 2) and which shows the classical serration. A first search for similar teeth on the internet remained without any results... So here is my hope that you can help my with the identification. Thanks in advance and please excuse my English...
  17. English Brachiopod Identification

    Hello, I just got a surprise package from my Aunt and Uncle who live in Somerset, England. It contained a nice amount of Brachiopods they found near them, at a place called Hill Farm. (May be meaningless to some, not for others.) I know definitively that these came out of the Blue Lias. What they are i'm not so certain. May anyone ID? First Batch: (All look similar; I included back and front sides as well) Second Batch: (Similar to some MD oysters Thanks!
  18. possible bone, vert, id

    Hi All! With the moderator's approval, I am reposting a few pics (1 year ago or so) that several members id' it as bone and/or vertebra. the subjects were found in Scotts Valley, CA. I am reposting them so hopefully someone can point out what and where the bones are located so I can I compare them to other pieces I have as well as learning how to spot possible bone. I am going to send these off to our resident prepper Kris and perhaps he can show how to reveal and/or uncover what's good (bones) and what's not (concretions) if he chooses to work on them. Thanks in advance for your guidance and help! Roberta

  20. Post Oak Creek Mystery

    Found this is in post Oak creek. Late Cretaceous. Is this a urchin if some kind? Or is this not even a fossil. Thanks for any help.
  21. Hi Everyone, I found an interesting large bone fragment in the Brazos River, outside of Harris County, Texas. The fragment has a thick sidewall, so I am guessing it is from a large mammal, possibly mammoth. The thing that I can't wrap my head around is the odd pocket-like texture exhibited on one side of the bone. Could these odd pockets help in the identification of this fossil? Also, I have attached a picture of 2 antlers from the Brazos. They both look like they are whitetail deer antlers to me. One is much larger than the other, possibly due to age and nutrition of the animal? Thanks for checking them out.
  22. I have found this theropod tooth in my collection. I bought it as a Carcharodontosaurus tooth, but I'm not sure about the Identification. I would like to hear your opinion on the ID. The tooth is from the Kem Kem Formation (Morocco) and is 51mm (2") in lenght. Serrations on the distal carina can be recognized. Can you help me? Kind regards from Germany!
  23. Partial Tooth, Claw, or ?

    This was found in the Peace River (Florida). I'm not sure what it is. Is it part of a tooth, or a claw or something else? Part of the specimen appears to be hollowed out. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
  24. 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?
