  1. Had been talking with a guy selling a spinosaurus jaw-piece, and got the pictures of it today. And the first thing that strikes me, is how perfect the teeth look compared to the rest of the jaw. To me, it sorta looks like they were planted there. With that said, there's a tooth in the jaw, that hasn't grown out, which is obviously much harder to make. However it does look like the part on where it sits, has been restored, and thereby the chance of it being placed there. And to me it also looks a bit like there are fillings in-between the two big teeth. I'm very much in doubt about this one, but right now it looks very suspicious to me, so I just wanted to post this here in case some of you guys can confirm that it's fake, composite, or real.
  2. Shark jaw attempt

    Since I am finished with my shark vertebrae cluster I have decided to start on a shadow box for my otodus obliquus tooth set but my daughter insists on a jaw. So here I am trying to make a jaw but oh boy it's not easy since I have never done anything like that. The fact that I am working only with photos doesn't help much either but what you would not do for your kids :). Did enyone here made a jaw before? Any suggestions? I am not trying to scientifically reconstruct an otodus jaw, I am just after a nice display piece.
  3. Looking to acquire a nice looking Pleistocene mandible of a Odocoileus virginianus ( White Tailed Deer) to go with a leg mount I have. *Must have teeth intact. I can trade Bakersfield shark teeth or ? Please PM with pics.
  4. Hi everyone! New member here. I am very excited to make my first post. So I came across a vendor today with some cool stuff, but I wanted to run some photos by the forum members first to see: 1) if you think they are real or fake. 2) how much would you expect to pay for a piece like that. Thanks for the help! Item #1 - Mosasaur Jaw To my eyes, this item looks legit as the teeth don't seem to be floating above the jaw with composite all around it, or teeth pointed in different directions. BUT...I know fakes are good and I am relatively new to educating myself to fakes vs real. Item #2 - Another Mosasaur Jaw (top and bottom) Also looks pretty legit to my newb eyes. But I am worried both top and bottom jaws in that position are too good to be true. Item #3 - Croc Skull? My gut reaction is fake...mostly due to the matrix looking like it was smeared on like cream cheese. Item #4 - Plesiosaur Skull and Neck It's apparently from goulmima southern morocco. Sadly I don't have more pics, as I didn't want to handle it and move it around. But I was able to get down low and see that it does have it's teeth. I just couldn't a good picture of it. :-\ The closest comparison I could find was this plesiosaur head/neck from an archived auction house website image. But the matrix around it seems the same.
  5. Bony Jaw?

    This bony jaw-like fossil was found on Panama City beach in Florida. Any idea what it is?
  6. Just a little heads-up if anyone sees these. They're currently for sale at a commonly-used site. The jawbones are actually quite nice, but the teeth all appear to be added afterwards. In my opinion, none are original. Although both are nice decorative pieces, I wouldn't buy them unless they were pretty cheap. Most people will know this already, but posted for the benefit of newbies.
  7. Saurorhynchus jaw

    From the album Holzmaden

    A 6bcm long Saurorhynchus (?) jaw from the quarry Kromer in Holzmaden (Lower Jurassic, Posidonia Shale). Next to it is a beautiful pyritized bivalve. Another picture:
  8. An Oreodont in Time (1 of 2)

    Three other angles of a small skull
  9. An Oreodont in Time (1 of 2)

    This smallish skull was given to me several years ago by a high school science teacher, as a bequest. At first, I entertained the idea that it may be that of a young reptile, of a larger variety. Now, I wonder whether it is perhaps some mammal instead. Have a look.
  10. fossil jaw fragment

    I was told this is a bobcat. It is said to be found in Florida. I didn't think it looked for sure like one but I don't have any mammal fossils yet so I wanted it anyway. I can't tell what it is though. Some of the tooth tips are chipped and the shape looks a bit strange. The rule is in centimeters (I accidentally wrote millimeters at first)
  11. Christmas presents

    I thought I would share a couple of my Christmas presents. A beautiful Pulalius vulgaris crab prepared by our own @RJB When he calls his B crabs or everybody else's A crabs. A deer (Odocoileus virginianus) Leg mount from Florida. Pleistocene. All of the bones were found together and are associated. A Megaloceros Giganteus jaw section with two teeth.
  12. Pleistocene mammal mandible ID

    I found this today along with a full bison skeleton in Collin County Texas north of Dallas. It is a Pleistocene lower mandible of a mammal, but I’m not sure what kind. Any thoughts? It is partially mineralized. More so than my bison. Any help would be appreciated.
  13. More skull fragments found in a shoe box

    Back again guys! I wanted to thank you all again for your help in ID'ing the Oreodont skull that my Grandmother gave me when I was a child. Thanks to everyone's help I was able to secure the two halves together and will hopefully be able to get it mounted, but honestly its great as it is. You guys are freakin' awesome. And on to more good news! I found another shoe box that we were literally going to throw in the dumpster, opened it up to find (you guessed it, especially if you read the title) more skull/jaw parts! One looks maybe like a carnivore/omnivore? And the other maybe a lower jaw bone of a herbivore? No clue, so I thought I'd ask you experts! The first looks like she had more of the top of the skull from residue from resin or glue, but I didn't find anything that would attach to it. Its about three and a half inches long and about the same in width judging by whats left of the orbitals area.
  14. purchased this online any ideas what it is?...fish? or? seller stated it was from Morocco I believe This is not the original fossil I won seems the one I won was misplaced.
  15. Oldest Primate Fossil

    https://phys.org/news/2018-11-oldest-known-ancestor-modern-primates-north.html Tiny jaw fossil with big implications for our evolutionary history
  16. Horse jaw?

    Found this jaw and I am wondering if it is modern or ice age. I did the match test and there is no smell what so ever. Found in the Arkansas river in kansas.
  17. Peace River, Partial Jaw with Teeth

    These pics aren't the best. I forgot to put a scale object in the photo. I hurriedly decided to shoot these because the setting sun was providing some good lighting. This piece is small, about 1.5 inches in overall length. There is an alligator scute in the background for rough approx. size comparison. I am not sure if this is fossilized, but the teeth look familiar to me. Is this a juvenile of something larger? Thanks! (Peace River, Florida, Bone Valley formation, Polk county, Hawthorn group)
  18. Jaw bone - Onion Creek TX

    My husband and I found some really great fossils in Onion Creek just east of Austin, TX today. Many of the usual gastropods but also some mammalian bones including a jaw with teeth intact. Welcoming any help with IDs here. Let me know what angle or side would be helpful if I failed to get the shots necessary to narrow it down. Many thanks!

  20. Hello everybody So, these are some jaws / skull all from Mosasaur / Kem Kem that run on actions right now. It's out of my price range, but I post this here for educational purposes. I want to point out: The first Jaw is a composit. The seller admits it in the description. Real teeth, real jaw fragments, but put together. I have to be honest: I would be fooled by the first one. Can you point out why you see that the first Jaw is a composit? For me it looks like there are just some crack repairing. According to the seeler, the skull has been reinforced with a metal frame and camouflaged afterwards, some minor traces of preparation might still be visible. The rest is untouched acording to the seller. I can't provide more or better pictures. Thank you very much for your help! Jaw #1(composit) Jaw #2 Jaw #3 Skull
  21. Thoughts on this jaw section of a Edmontosaurus. Has there been any restoration? Authentic? These are the only pictures sent to me. He is asking a pretty penny debating on if it would be a good addition for my collection. Any information is greatly appreciated. Thanks again guys
  22. I picked this up before even knowing that people could or would fake mosasaur jaws. I've done the best I could could but this rookie could still use the help. This mosasaur piece is from Morocco and that's all I've got. Thanks everyone
  23. Just got back from the Orlando Fossil Fair 2018, I bought some nice fossils but many were not identified and I want to confirm ID's for ones that were. There's a lot of fossils so I'll label each one with information and my own opinon on them. All the fossils shown are allegedly carnivores and found in the Suwannee River in Florida (excluding two of them). The furthest on the left will be #1, and the furthest on the right will be #4. I'm not convinced that 1 is a carnivore but besides that I don't have any hypothesis on what the others could be. The left one in this picture is 5, the one on the right is 6. Five reminds me of a bear, and I don't have any idea what 6 is or if it's even a carnivore. The tooth will be 7 the jaw will be 8, both are allegedly dire wolves (they're not associated) from 'Northern Florida', I don't have an exact locality unfortunately. I suspect these both belong to dire wolves. The furthest left will be 9, and the furthest right is 11. I suspect 9 and 10 to be racoon teeth, but I'm not sure if racoons are found in the Suwannee river. At first I thought 11 was a canid, but after looking at it for awhile it looks more like a feline. This last specimen will be 12, right now I'm stuck between a primitive canid (possibly leptocyon) a feline, or some sort of fox. This specimen was also found in the Suwannee, like the rest except the dire wolves. If you need more pictures I can take some and post them within the hour. Thanks in advance!
  24. Jaw bone?

    I found this at a local beach today on the east coast of Florida. Can you tell me what it might be? I was thinking a jaw bone perhaps? Thank you.
  25. Spino jaw section ?

    Hello all would this be a spino jaw section or a croc jaw section ? And the tooth has been put on the jaw.
